Hot Medical Stocks To Own Right Now

Several days ago Fitbit (FIT) and Dexcom (DXCM) announced they are partnering to develop CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) solutions for people living with diabetes. The first product will incorporate DXCM’s CGM data and bridge it with FIT’s new Ionic watch. Users of Android and iOS devices would be able to see “activity and glucose levels, right on their wrist.”

So what’s the big deal?

Th truth is that it isn’t such a big deal for DXCM. The company already sells and markets a similar product for both Android and iOS devices.

However, please note that the Ionic will have four days of battery life, which could be considered mission critical in such medical applications. Apple’s (AAPL) new iWatch 3 on the other hand clams to have up to 18 hours of battery life.

Also, the Ionic smartwatch has a built-in GPS tracker, an optical heart rate sensor, an accelerometer and a blood oxygen sensor. So perhaps DXCM and FIT might have more plans for medical Apps in the future. The AAPL iWatch does not have all those amenities, and to get the GPS tracker you have to fork out about $30 more.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

Boston Dynamics’ robots keep getting smarter — and soon they’ll be available for purchase.

At a TechCrunch robotics event on Friday, Boston Dynamics founder Marc Raibert announced its robotic dog SpotMini is currently in “pre-production.” The company will start selling the robots in 2019.

It’s unclear who will be able to buy them, and the cost has not yet been revealed.

“SpotMini is in pre-production now,” Raibert said. “We’ve built 10 units [of] a design that’s close to [what] a manufacture will design. We’ve built them in house but with help from contractor/manufacture type people.”

The dog-like SpotMini robot climbs up and down stairs. The first version of the SpotMini walked, rolled over and even put objects in a dishwasher. Last year, it was revamped and can now walk by itself using autonomous navigation. Earlier this year, Boston Dynamics released a video showing the SpotMini opening a door for another robot.

The SpotMini robot

At Amazon’s robotic conference earlier this year, CEO Jeff Bezos posted a photo of him walking with one of the Boston Dynamics robot dogs.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Sigma Designs, Inc.(SIGM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

    Given the need for food and energy in order to support booming population growth in emerging markets, there’ll be a need for significant investment in sustainable water solutions. It’s a compelling long-term investment case, and I think Danaher Corporation (NYSE:DHR), Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL) and Pentair plc (NYSE:PNR) are stocks well-placed to play the investment theme. One of the interesting things about water is that there’s no lack of it or difficulty in finding it; the problem is ensuring its quality (for both potable water and wastewater) and transporting it to the right places. This means there’s likely to be good long-term demand for companies serving the market.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

All the doom and gloom surrounding Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), which centers primarily on weak demand for its flagship iPhone X and the growing saturation in the smartphone market, hasn’t fazed one famed investor. Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) CEO Warren Buffett, who is arguably one of the most well-known and successful investors of all time, has continued to buy massive caches of the iPhone maker’s stock.

Buffett added a mind-boggling 75 million Apple shares last quarter — on top of the 165.3 million shares Berkshire already owned — increasing its share count by a whopping 45%. That brings the company’s total stake in Apple up to about 5% of shares.

If the naysayers are right, why does the Oracle of Omaha continue stocking up on Apple’s shares?
