This week, a whole new form of business got its start in Pittsburgh – that former titan of the steel industry.

On Wednesday, Uber Technologies Inc. launched a self-driving car pilot program there with a handful of Ford Fusions and more than 100 Volvos. That makes Pittsburgh – the “hub” of the region where I spent my preteen years – the first U.S. city where passengers can hail a ride in a driverless car.

We’ve talked in great length about areas like ridesharing, driverless autos and the “connected car.”

Acacia Communications (ACIA) delivers high-speed optical interconnect products which transform communication networks. These solutions are used by cloud infrastructure players, content and communication service providers, among others.

The company timed its IPO well earlier this year, as accelerating growth triggered a huge post-IPO momentum run in the shares. As these shares have given up 50% of their value ever since, following a subsequent share offering and 篓weaker篓 Q4 guidance, I think that appeal is improving rather rapidly at this point in time.

A Growth Story, In A Growing Industry

The issue with communication network providers is that some products can often become successful overnight, resulting in steep growth rates, yet we have seen many players which have seen the boom and consequential bust in this industry.

Acacia麓s products are designed to improve performance, capacity and reduce costs through the conversion towards a silicon-based technology. These products are sold by a direct sales force, as the company has merely 25 customers at the moment. Growing bandwidth demand as a result of video, mobile and internet of things make the strain on these networks much greater. The siliconization of optical networks can play a major role to handle the growth.

what stocks to buy now: Brady Corporation(BRC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Robert Baird announced on Friday that it has cut its rating on Brady Corp (BRC).

    The firm has downgraded BRC from “Outperform” to “Neutral,” and has given the company a $33 price target. This price target suggests a 8% upside from the stock’s current price of $30.52.

    Analysts see the company’s WPS segment growing faster than expected.

    Brady shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock is down 9% YTD.

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Before the opening bell on Thursday, identification solutions provider Brady Corp (BRC) posted a loss in the fourth quarter, despite a rise in revenues, as it was negatively impacted by a number of charges. However, excluding these charges, the company was able to top Wall Street analysts’ earnings and sales estimates. Nonetheless, BRC shares are plummeting in Thursday’s trading.

    The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based company posted a loss from continuing operations of $176.2 million, or $3.41 per share, in the fourth quarter, versus last year’s fourth quarter earnings from continuing operations of $20.9 million, or 40 cents per share. Furthermore, Brady posted a net loss of $177.2 million, or $3.43 per share, compared to net earnings of $11.6 million, or 22 cents per share, in the same period a year ago.

    The fourth quarter loss includes non-cash impairment charges of $204.4 million, $15.6 million in restructuring charges, and $4 million in acquisition-related charges. Excluding these charges, Brady Corp said earnings would have been 53 cents per share in the quarter. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, the company was expected to earn an adjusted 51 cents per share in the fourth quarter.

    The company’s fourth quarter sales came in at $309.1 million, up 15% from $269.1 million in sales posted last year. On average, analysts were expecting the company to see $307.13 million in revenues for the quarter.

    Looking ahead, Brady Corp. sees fiscal 2014 earnings coming in between $1.80 and $2.00 per share, below the analysts’ view of $2.30 per share.

    Brady Corp shares were down $1.71, or 5.25%, during early morning trading on Thursday. The stock is up 7.93% year-to-date.

    For the 28th year in a row, Brady Corp (BRC) has increased its dividend payout to investors.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Hopes were high for MannKind (MNKD) when its inhaled insulin Afrezza was approved by the FDA more than two years ago. At the time, Barron’s warned that it was time to dump MannKind’s shares, something that now seems prescient, as its shares have since tumbled 95%. No wonder, as the news since then has been far from good. MannKind found a partner in Sanofi (SNY), only to get dumped in early 2016, and has since been forced to sell property to raise cash. And now MannKind could be on the verge of being delisted from the Nasdaq due to its sub $1 stock price. What now? Piper Jaffray’sJoshua Schimmer and team see a reverse stock split in MannKind’s future:

    [MannKind] has been focused on relaunch of Afrezza (inhaled insulin) for diabetes since Sanofi terminated its partnership for that program last year. Progress has been slow as the company first deployed a contract sales force but is now switching to an internal one. Hiring is nearly complete and reps will be out in the field soon. The company has also made strides in expanding reimbursement coverage for Afrezza. MannKind is also in the process of launching a new Titration Pack for Afrezza that allows for greater dosing flexibility in an attempt to simplify prescribing patterns of the drug. However with all these efforts, scrips have not yet shown signs of life in a very crowded diabetes market where MannKind is likely to struggle to claim share of voice relative to large pharma competitors. MannKind held a special meeting of stockholders in February 2017 in order to gain authority for a reverse stock split, if necessary to avoid de-listing by NASDAQ. MannKind recently indicated its cash position to be at ~$120M (and added $17M from the sale of its Valencia facility in February), which does provide some room to grow Afrezza sales before having to seek out yet another dilutive raise. However, its unclear if any of the new commercial efforts will help to rescue Afrezza sales. Ou

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When most investors think of diabetes stocks, names like Novo Nordisk A/S (ADR) (NYSE:NVO) and MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) come to mind. And well they should. Novo Nordisk is the biggest insulin company in the world, and while MannKind is relatively small, it’s a name that turns heads simply because it came up with an inhalable insulin that – after a slow start – is getting a little traction.

    In both cases though, the paradigm is the same one that was first used decades ago. That is, if a person isn’t making their own insulin, then it must be introduced externally. What if instead a diabetic’s glucose levels could be controlled by turning on the cells in their body responsible for processing that sugar? That’s the approach Cell MedX Corp (OTCMKTS:CMXC) is taking, using a relatively new but very compelling science.

    While chemical-based manufactured pharmaceuticals were largely the core of healthcare for well over the past century, it’s become clear that our bodies – right down to our cells – are also electrical in nature. Not only do they produce it, they need it to function properly. The FDA has even recently approved a therapeutic device that delivers mild electrical currents to and through an individual’s body as a means of treating pain. This “electromedicine” has also shown a certain degree of efficacy as a treatment for several illnesses, including cancer. Specifically, electrical currents have been demonstrated to force pleomorphic cancer microbes into hibernation, essentially making a cancerous cell a normal, healthy cell again. So, using an electrical current as a means of therapy for diabetics isn’t far-fetched at all. Indeed, it’s quite brilliant.

    As for how Cell MedX is using the idea, it’s actually quite simple. The device is called an eBalance. At first glance it just looks like another ordinary tablet computer. A closer inspection of the e-Balance device, however, makes it clear that it’s not just another tablet. It’

  • [By Darren Williams] Although the entire cannabis space has quietly taken a hit of their own medicine in recent weeks and gone to sleep, don’t think for one second the entire space isn’t going to light up again soon. That’s just what they do, right? However, knowing who the pretenders are and knowing who the contenders are is really the challenge when it’s comes right down to it.
    First, anyone who claims to be a grower or a seller of cannabis can’t for one second ever make it as a public company right now, or can even legally consider being a public company for that matter, so you can scratch any of those right off your list. At least here in the U.S. anyway, because Canada is already well ahead of the curve having legalized it for medicinal purposes already.
    More importantly, full legalization of marijuana in Canada appears to be on track for July 2018, which will make Canada just the second nation in the world after Uruguay to completely legalize the cultivation, sale and possession of the drug for medical and recreational purposes.
    Regardless, the best time to buy any stocks in a hot growth sector is when either everyone has forgotten about them, or when the overall market landscape has turned bearish, which has yet to happen. However, the former seems to be the case for the cannabis space, despite some very favorable state legislation last Fall.
    For now, as long as you have a license issued by Health Canada, you’re good to go, so there are some stocks trading in Canada already who are well on their way to making some green for investors.

Xi Jinping slept on a straw mat in a flea-infested cave in rural China for seven years…   It was part of his "re-education."   You see, Xi's father was a founding member of the Communist Party of China. But this hurt, rather than helped, Xi when his father fell from power.   He was seen as a privileged "princeling." And the Communist Party didn't want him.   Xi underwent years of hard labor in the fields of Liangjiahe to "cleanse" him of his affluent upbringing. The party rejected him 10 times. But it finally accepted him in 1974.   Today, Xi is the president of China. And he recently made a statement that will change everything about the Chinese stock market…   Let me explain…   Last month, Xi became much more than just an influential president…

    Axiom Capital’s Gordon Johnson warns that iron ore prices might be ready to drop:

    Beware: An Imminent End to an Epic Restock Suggests Iron Ore Prices May Snap Back Toward Fundamentals. Our work suggests ~70% of global iron ore demand can be met at a cash cost of <$23/t; add in $8/t for interest, CAPEX, & other, & we get to a breakeven of $31/t. In addition, w/ inventory restocking & current prices making further investment attractive, despite current excesses, we believe iron ore prices should be ~$40/t (i.e., below marginal costs); in this fashion, w/ Chinese real estate investment on the decline, we view iron ore spot prices >$62/t as a stretch. So what has been propping prices? In our view, one word restocking; first by the mills, undergoing the biggest restocking effort of Chinese steel in >6-yrs., & then by the traders, which have built their iron ore port stocks to a record, w/ days of inventory at a 2.5-yr. high (Ex. 18-19). Yet, w/ data pointing to peak steel inventory, implying risk to n-term ore demand, & the govt probing speculative trading, we see the current restocking cycle as very much so in the later innings

    Risk assets are lower globally as the USD continues to lead bond yields, global equities and commodity prices lower. The DXY is down -3% since March 10th and the declines accelerated overnight as investor concerns over the size, timing and likelihood of fiscal stimulus grow. In addition, PBoC Governor Zhou Xiaochuan noted that China is at the end of ultra-easing measures. The recent drumbeat of news from China noting that they are moving away from growth at all costs has helped push commodity prices lower. Declines in copper, iron ore and steel accelerated overnight.

So what

Now what

Rogers shares have now gained 72% over the last 52 weeks, trading steadily near all-time highs. The maker of specialized materials used in battery systems and wireless antennas has consistently delivered solid earnings surprises over the last three years, often coupled with equally strong revenue wins.

This company is poised to continue making a killing in several emerging markets, including the Internet of Things and automotive computing. Best of all, Rogers is winning competitive contracts without resorting to pricing discounts. Trailing operating margins have increased from 12.4% to 14.2% over the last four quarters. In other words, clients are choosing Rogers over rival materials providers for other reasons than low prices, such as product quality and dependable ordering and delivery processes.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Lam Research (LRCX) has consistently outgrown the overall semiconductor-equipment market due to its high exposure to 3D NAND flash memory.

    Demand for wafer-fabrication equipment is notoriously volatile. However, over the last 90 days, the consensus profit estimate for this year jumped 17%, with 95% of analysts raising their targets.

    Lam Research (LRCX) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after beating earnings forecasts and raising its fourth-quarter guidance.

    Lam Researchgained 6.9% to $136.17 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 2,338.17.

    Credit Suisse analysts Farhan Ahmad and John Pitzer and argues that Lam Research’s “new trough is higher than [its] old peak.” They explain:

    We expect that bears will continue to argue that CY17 is a “Peak” year; however we think that investors are missing that it now costs >2x more to get incremental bit growth than three years ago. It is noteworthy that despite ~$17bn of memory WFE in 2016 both NAND and DRAM markets went from oversupply to undersupply – implying that new trough for memory investments is even higher than old peak (2010 memory peak had WFE of $12.6bn). We view Semi Growth, rising capital intensity, and growing China CapEx as secular multiyear themes, which could continue to provide growth in coming years. In addition, in case of tax reform there could be potential to return >$50 per share to shareholders by 2020…Increase TP to $160 (from $143), based on 12x of CY18 EPS plus net cash adj for taxes.

    Lam Research’s market capitalization rose to $22.2 billion today from $20.8 billion yesterday.
