Some of the damage will, of course, be offset by share losses ZTE is likely to see on account of the ban. This could particularly hold for mobile suppliers, given that the ban could prevent ZTE from shipping phones running Alphabet/Google’s (GOOGL) version of Android.

Market participants were generally happy about oil prices moving back into the $70s, hoping for a rebound in hard-hit areas of the country that had taken advantage of the triple-digit oil prices of the early 2010s by dramatically ramping up production of shale plays and similar opportunities. Yet even with the generally favorable mood, some stocks weren’t able to join the rally.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Facebook, Inc.(FB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Social media and tech stocks remain front and center as Facebook (FB) CEO Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees this afternoon.

  • [By ]

    Facebook Inc. (FB) continues to open up the spending spigots, and investors don’t seem to mind.

    Shares have been soaring after the social network soundly beat earnings and revenue expectations after the close on Wednesday. Capital expenditures in the first quarter amounted to $2.8 billion and full year expenses in 2018 are estimated to be around $15 billion, CFO David Wehner said during the earnings call Wednesday.

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    As earnings season continues, a host of big tech companies are about to report earnings, including Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft, and Apple. But Facebook will be one of the most interesting earnings reports to watch. Not only is it among the most valuable companies in the world, but it’s growing at an extraordinary pace. In Facebook’s fourth quarter, revenue and earnings per share jumped 47% and 83% year over year when adjusted to exclude the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

    7. Facebook (NASDAQ:FB): $472.9 billion market cap, down 14.2%.

    The social-networking leader experienced the largest stock gain among the top 10 this past week, soaring 11.2% after the company came through with a better-than-expected quarter. Beating revenue and profit goals is certainly healthy news, but the real gem is that active user numbers are growing sequentially again. Facebook’s daily and monthly active users increased 9% on a year-over-year basis, and there was also improvement from the third quarter’s showing. Other successes included topping 500 million daily active users for Instagram Stories and more than 90 million small businesses using its products.

    Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) has a new in-house lobbyist. According to CNBC:

    Facebook is shuffling around its senior leadership in the wake of increased regulatory scrutiny following the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    The survey is bad news for Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), which is losing younger users as it tries to regain the public’s trust after the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The company still retains younger users through Instagram, but a survey this spring from Hill Holliday’s Origin found that 34% of Gen Zers planned to leave social media due to time management, privacy, and self-esteem concerns.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    U.S. President Donald Trump is facing criticism after threatening to ramp up taxes on Harley-Davidson Inc. (NYSE: HOG). The iconic motorcycle producer said it will move parts of its production overseas in order to avoid tariffs from the European Union. Trump threatened to increase taxes on the firm. “Surprised that Harley-Davidson, of all companies, would be the first to wave the White Flag,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “I fought hard for them and ultimately they will not pay tariffs selling into the E.U., which has hurt us badly on trade, down $151 Billion. Taxes just a Harley excuse – be patient!” Earlier this month, Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) launched a $7.5 billion takeover of the web-based hosting service GitHub. The acquisition, orchestrated by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, brought out critics who claim that GitHub lacks any real profit potential for Microsoft stock. Here’s why those critics are wrong… and why MSFT is a buy. Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) has reversed its policy on cryptocurrency ads.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The U.S. markets are preparing for the eighth interest rate hike since 2015, and the Federal Reserve may not be done yet. Markets are weighing the possibility that the Fed may raise rates one more time this year (in December). The hikes come as the Fed is attempting to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet.

Reporters will also likely want to know about geopolitical risks to the U.S. economy and how they might affect growth in a higher-interest-rate environment. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump gave a speech before the United Nations General Assembly. During his talk, Trump praised the U.S. economy and defended his administration’s actions this year on trade. Trump said that the United States will no longer endure “abuse” from other trade partners. The U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also said Tuesday that the U.S. is prepared to proceed on a new trade deal with Mexico without the participation of Canada. Oil prices are in focus after President Trump called out OPEC members before the U.N. on Tuesday.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Open Text Corporation(OTEX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Box was an early mover in the content and file management space in enterprise markets. In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,  Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a strong day on Wall Street, and major benchmarks posted solid gains of around 1%. Market participants were generally happy about oil prices moving back into the $70s, hoping for a rebound in hard-hit areas of the country that had taken advantage of the triple-digit oil prices of the early 2010s by dramatically ramping up production of shale plays and similar opportunities. Yet even with the generally favorable mood, some stocks weren’t able to join the rally. Kinross Gold (NYSE:KGC), Weibo (NASDAQ:WB), and Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Own For 2019

People, and markets, get fidgety in late August. It’s the time of year when summertime fun turns into tedium. Kids are actually looking forward to getting back into the school routine. Asset markets, meanwhile, jump at any tidbit of event-driven news that can make the time to Labor Day weekend pass by more quickly. Today’s distraction of choice was Fed Chair Janet Yellen’s speech at the annual Jackson Hole monetary policy confab. Did financial media pundits really want to hear about the contribution of the new IOER (interest paid on excess reserves) policy to the Fed’s ability to steer the fed funds rate? Of course not! But they did want to spend a few minutes mining Yellen’s speech for any trace of a hint of a possible “live” meeting in September, i.e. one with a rate hike on the table.

That hint, predictably, remains as elusive as the Yeti. Bond yields spiked very briefly when the phrase, “case for an increase in the federal funds rate has strengthened in recent months”, tumbled onto the CNBC news banner. But asset indexes of all stripes, from stocks to bonds to currencies and volatility, soon realized that there was nothing new under the sun in terms of specific rate timing. Dog days tedium resumed.
