Spectacular falls in the cost of wind, solar and battery technology mean that clean energy is increasingly pushing coal and gas out of the world&a;rsquo;s electricity generation mix in a &a;ldquo;chilling&a;rdquo; development for the future of fossil fuel power generation.

Research group Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) has released its latest report on the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) and it suggests that President Donald Trump&a;rsquo;s attempts to revive the U.S. coal industry is doomed to failure. That&a;rsquo;s because the price of battery storage has tumbled by 79% since 2010, from $1,000/kWh to $209/kWh while both wind and solar power have fallen by 18% in just a year.

Hot Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Brexit has some companies running scared. But not the tech industry.

Tech companies have announced a series of new investments in the United Kingdom even as major business groups warn that leaving the European Union could result in dire consequences.

The latest vote of confidence comes from US software titan Salesforce (CRM), which has committed to investing $2.5 billion over the next five years to help grow its business in the United Kingdom.

“Our commitment to driving growth, innovation and customer success in the region has never been stronger,” CEO Marc Benioff said in a statement.

Salesforce has plenty of company. Amazon (AMZN) announced last week that it would hire another 2,500 workers in the United Kingdom, bringing its total workforce in the country to over 27,500.

Mubadala, an investment company based in Abu Dhabi, announced this week that it would team up with Japan’s SoftBank (SFTBF) on a $400 million European tech fund based in London.

Hot Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019: NVIDIA Corporation(NVDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    There’s a lot to like about NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA). The graphics specialist has been clocking blistering growth quarter after quarter, thanks to solid demand for its chips across several verticals such as PC gaming, self-driving cars, virtual reality, and cloud computing. However, the company dividend is one area in which NVIDIA lacks big-time.

  • [By ]

    UBS also gave positive nods in the autonomous vehicle space to Nvidia (NVDA) and Intel (INTC) on the semi-conductor side of this growing business.

    Do I Get Long Google Now?

    I think I do, but as always, carefully. News broke last week that Amazon had halted the purchase of high revenue advertising space on Google search results. Alphabet’s stock did not even skip a beat. I would have liked to have seen some scattered weakness on this news, and I spent almost the entire day Monday bidding for these shares below the market, without ever really coming that close to buying any.

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    Shares of graphics chip specialist NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) have returned a mind-boggling 1,060% over the three-year period through Sept. 24, versus the broader market’s 60.7% return. The 10-year picture below is even prettier.

    Our Biggest Loser… And A Bunch Of Big Wins
    Our biggest loser was back in January when we closed out of small communications equipment firm Aerohive Networks (Nasdaq: HIVE). On January 17, the company made a statement about its upcoming fourth-quarter earnings release, warning that revenue would likely be near the lower end of its guidance range. Investors didn’t take kindly to the news and sent shares tumbling by roughly 30%… well below our 15% trailing stop-loss. We ended up closing out with a 35% loss on the trade.

And now, thanks to a new app from GM, we can safely order coffee from Starbucks (SBUX) and Dunkin’ Donuts (DNKN) while we drive.

The new technology will let drivers do everything from ordering hot wings to booking a hotel room or reserving a table at Applebee’s — all without even having to pull over.

If you own a 2017 or 2018 model year Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac, you might see a new icon on your vehicle’s central computer screen Tuesday morning. It’s labeled Marketplace.

With a few pokes of your finger you can order food or drinks, or reserve a table at one of several restaurants that have teamed up with GM.

The new GM Marketplace App will allow users to make purchases and reservations from behind the wheel.

“For most retailers and consumer brands the daily commute is the only time not accessible in a consumers’ day,” said Santiago Chamorro, GM’s vice president for Connected Customer Experience, in an announcement. “Marketplace gives merchants the ability to more safely engage with drivers and passengers in a meaningful way that provides true value for our customers.”

They have ubiquity andseemingly a very strong brand attachment with their offering. I think that there’sreally something there on the services side. But, when they’re capping margins to make their prices more accessible, that only gives themso much cash to operate with. You see the precedent that Apple has set withcommanding really good margins andcreating a cash cow business with their iPhone segment. I worry that Xiaomimight struggle to do that, particularly because services is such a tiny portion of the overall business. If that starts to change, then I think the interest level for me is a little higher.

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

MedMen, a Los Angeles-based chain of marijuana dispensaries, can’t trade on Wall Street because cannabis is illegal in its home country.

So it listed in Canada.

MedMen started trading this week on the Canadian Securities Exchange, or CSE.

They’re not alone. US cannabis companies are heading north to list on stock exchanges in Canada, where there’s no federal ban on marijuana sales. Medical marijuana is legal there, and the country is in the process of legalizing recreational marijuana, too.

It’s a two-way street. Some Canadian cannabis companies have come south to list on Wall Street exchanges, because they’re not subject to the same restrictions that keep US pot growers away.

In the US, medical marijuana is legal in 30 states, and recreational is legal in 10. But US cannabis companies can’t list on US stock exchanges or even get basic financial services, because marijuana is prohibited by the federal government.

“There are no straight roads and there are no clear paths,” said MedMen CEO Adam Bierman.
