Advisors’ Opinion:

    But Amazon’s ultimate end-goal would likely be turning stores into “centralized distribution centers for groceries” but “we err on the futuristic side given Bezos thinks big.”

    Company Commentary
    Kroger Co (NYSE: KR) may be best positioned to counter Amazon’s threat given its own data analytics capabilities. SYSCO Corporation (NYSE: SYY) and US Foods Holding Corp (NYSE: USFD) are likely safe as Amazon won’t move into the foodservice distribution space which is very different from serving individual customers.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2018: Arista Networks, Inc.(ANET)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Shares of Arista Networks Inc (NYSE: ANET) got a boost, shooting up 17 percent to $117.47 after the company reported better-than-expected results for its fourth quarter and issued a strong outlook for the current quarter.

  • [By Simon Erickson]

    Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) founder/Chairman Andy Bechtolsheim became a Silicon Valley legend after being one of the first investors in the company now called Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL), cutting the company a $100,000 check in 1998 before it had even formally selected a name (he confirmed this investment has personally netted him more than $1 billion).

    Arista’s customer count has increased sixfold during the past four years (from 570 in 2011 to more than 3,500 today) and their market share in high-speed data center switching has increased from 3% to 12% during the same time frame. Bechtolsheim owns 19% of Arista’s shares, with insiders collectively owning more than 44%. Due to massive amounts of data being transferred across the Internet (thanks to high-definition video, genomic sequencing, and a ton of other formats), investment in cloud-computing infrastructure is estimated to grow from $32.6 billion in 2015 to $53.1 billion by 2019.

    My Top Pick for growth investors in 2017 is Arista Networks (ANET), which in many ways looks like the next Cisco (CSCO) — the company was built from the ground up to deal with the realities of the new networking paradigm.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Furthermore, if the company were thinking along these lines it would be due to competitive pressures. For years, Cisco’s switching software was only available on its own high-margin hardware; however, the data center switching industry is changing, as competitors like Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) are winning market share by offering low-cost switches with high functionality. In the past year or two, though, an even greater threat to the industry has emerged, as smaller networking companies started selling stand-alone software that could be run on low-end “whitebox” switches made by low-cost Asian vendors.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The phrase “over the top television” – or its acronym “OTT” – aren’t necessarily newly-coined ones. The phrase/abbreviation materialized shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television services less than a decade ago. The over-the-top race didn’t really heat up, however, until the past few months. Once it did heat up though, sparks started to fly in earnest.

    They’re still flying too, and will be for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to say about it. Netflix, Hulu [jointly owned by Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA)] and all the rest of the relatively new players in this space may want to look over their shoulder. In the meantime, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT industry is going to be made during the next 10 years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the totally dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. It was admittedly the first on the scene, and therefore was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market (which it still holds to this day). It’s largely become a commoditized business though.

    Case in point? Aside from Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the game with its product called CBS All Access. The service allows subscribers, for a nominal monthly fee, to access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found respectable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), has really broken new ground in the over the top market by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that package at a rate that’s much less than what it would cost a cable subscriber

    Of course, some companies are betting on both hardware and software. Sony (NYSE:SNE) released its PlayStation VR headset late last year, and sells an upgraded PlayStation 4 console to better handle VR games. But the company is also working with content creators like Reality One to make VR content that’san extension of some of its films, along with other original VR content.

  • [By Michael A. Robinson]

    Plus, the startup has the backing of Sony Corp. (NYSE: SNE), which is pioneering commercial drones in Japan, and Rakuten Inc., Japan’s leading online shopping mall, which launched a local drone service in April 2016.

    For those who want a general facsimile of the pay-TV bundle and access to the largest broadcast networks, there’s Sling TV from Dish Network (DISH) , DirecTV Now from   AT&T (T) and Sony’s (SNE) PlayStation Vue. In the coming weeks, they’ll be joined by Alphabet’s (GOOGL) YouTube TV and a still unnamed pay-TV service from Hulu, the video-on-demand service controlled jointly by Disney, Comcast’s (CMCSA) NBCUniversal and 21st Century Fox (FOXA) , along with Time Warner (TWX) holding a 10% stake.

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2018

The staffing industry – and the IT staffing industry in particular – is poised for tremendous growth in the foreseeable future, and that rising tide bodes very well for Staffing 360 Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:STAF).

For those who’ve followed the sociopolitical rhetoric it would be easy to conclude what job growth we’ve seen in the past few years has been measly, made even less impressive by the fact most of the new jobs have been less-than-great-career types of jobs. And to be fair, there’s a kernel of truth in what the critics are saying. A closer inspection is merited though, because a closer look clarifies that some industries are seeing tremendous job growth. One of the hottest hot spots? You guessed it … IT jobs.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, software and developer positions will grow by 19% between 2014 and 2024, making it one of the nation’s fastest-growing non-medical career choices. When you broaden the data out to “computer and mathematical occupations”, the ten-year growth projection is 13.1%, which IS the second-highest growth pace among all jobs (second only to healthcare).

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2018: Peugeot S.A. (PUGOY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Yes, you read that correct! General Motors (NYSE: GM) will probably not settle for just a new 52-week high and will aim to take out the 2013 peak of $41.85. With talks about the Opel sellout to PSA Group (OTCPK:PEUGF) (OTCPK:PUGOY) progressing at a rate much faster than I had anticipated, a (likely) deal announcement on Monday will pave the way for new all-time highs.

  • [By John Rosevear]

    It’s official: General Motors (NYSE:GM) will sell its long-troubled Opel subsidiary to French automaker Peugeot S.A. (NASDAQOTH:PUGOY) for about $2.3 billion, in a deal expected to close later this year.

    Now, the General is thinking about ditching Europe for good by selling its European operations to French automaker Peugeot (NASDAQOTH:PUGOY). As long as Peugeot is willing to pay a reasonable price, selling Opel is GM’s best course of action.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Looking at recent historical deals, we arrive at a $18-$23 potential deal range. We analyzed transactions that have been announced over the past four years and involved companies catering to a higher income customer. These deals include Southern Tide (acquired by Oxford Industries (OXM)), Joe’s Jeans (acquired by Sequential Brands Group (SQBG)), prAna (acquired by Columbia Sportswear (COLM)), The Jones Group (acquired by Sycamore Partners [private] and Juicy Couture (acquired by Authentic Brands Group [private]). The average EV/EBITDA multiple of these transactions are 12.9x (in line with KATE’s 5-year historical average of 12.1x) and implies a potential deal range of $22-$23. When taking the average of recent (F13-16) deals implies an ~10.5x EV/EBITDA multiple. When applying the ~10.5x multiples to KATE’s trailing EBITDA, we arrive at an $18- $19 potential share price.

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2018: Intuit Inc.(INTU)

    Morgan Stanley reported on Wednesday that it has downgraded financial management solution provider Intuit Inc. (INTU).

    The firm has cut its rating on INTU to “Underweight,” and has given the company a $62 price target. This price target suggests a 6% decline from the stock’s current price of $66.30. This downgrade reflects the company’s slowing growth of its tax business.

    Intuit shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Wednesday. The stock is up 11% YTD.

The most important variable when it comes to bank stocks right now is the federal funds rate, the primary short-term interest rate benchmark in the United States. If the Federal Reserve sticks with its plan to raise interest rates two more times this year, then banks will make a lot more money.

JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) offers a case in point. The nation’s biggest bank by assets recently disclosed that it should earn an added $2.3 billion worth of net interest income (NII) over the 12 months following an instantaneous rise in short- and long-term rates by 100 basis points, or 1 percentage point.

This doesn’t mean JPMorgan Chase’s profit will increase that much, because it won’t — at least not just because of higher interest rates. A bank’s net interest income is instead a component of revenue, calculated by subtracting a bank’s cost of funds from its interest income from earning assets. To convert it to net income, then, taxes need to be excluded. Either way, $2.3 billion is a lot of money.

    The stock market performed well on Tuesday, responding to steady improvement among many companies as earnings season kicked into high gear. Although political issues are likely to remain in the spotlight for some investors for the foreseeable future, many market participants are looking to economic and business issues in driving their investing decisions. Major market benchmarks finished the day with gains of 0.5% to 1%, but some stocks did much better. Among the best performers on the day were Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI), II-VI (NASDAQ:IIVI), and Beazer Homes (NYSE:BZH). Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

penny stock newsletter: Star Bulk Carriers Corp.(SBLK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    StarBulk Carriers (SBLK) and Safe Bulkers (SB) have more than tripled during the past 12 months, while Golden Ocean Group (GOGL) has more than doubled. So it must be time for an upgrade right?

    That’s exactly what Morgan Stanley did last night, when they upgraded StarBulk Carriers, Safe Bulkers, and Golden Ocean Group to Overweight from Equal Weight, while lifting arguing that the “recovery is still not priced in.” They explain:

    These companies have young fleets, mostly larger vessels, low cost structures, high operational and financial leverage to repricing in the dry bulk segment, and ability to start paying dividends in YE2018. Dry bulk stocks have nearly doubled YoY, but are still cheap in historical terms, in our view. The group trades at the historical 100-110% EV/Fleet Value, discounting no further increases in vessel values that are still ~50% below the long-term historical averages, significantly lagging the recent move in charter rates. We still see significant upside as charter rates increase, vessel values normalize, and capital returns to the industry as the group’s overall market cap increases.

    Shares of StarBulk Carriers have climbed 16% to $11.72 at 3:50 p.m. today, while Safe Bulkers has jumped 13% to $2.13, and Golden Ocean Group has gained 9.6% to $8.13.

    Too bad I recommended buying Golar LNG (GLNG) and avoiding the dry-bulk shippers back in November.

    Star Bulk Carriers (SBLK) provides worldwide transportation of drybulk commodities through its vessel-owning subsidiaries for a range of customers and minor bulk cargoes including iron ore, coal, grain, cement and fertilizer. This stock closed up 7.9% at $10.58 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 243,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 64,367

    Volume % Change: 228%

    From a technical perspective, SBLK jumped sharply higher here right above some near-term support at $9.47 with above-average volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last two months and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $5.37 to its recent high of $11.53. During that move, shares of SBLK have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of SBLK within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if SBLK manages to take out its 52-week high at $11.53 and then once it clears some past resistance at $11.98 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SBLK as long as it’s trending above near-term support at $9.47 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 64,367 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SBLK will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are its next major overhead resistance levels at $14 to $15.

    When most investors think of potential competitive threats to drybulk shippers like Star Bulk Carriers Corp. (NASDAQ:SBLK) or Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ:ESEA), Double Crown Resources Inc (OTCMKTS:DDCC) doesn’t come to mind. Indeed, DDCC doesn’t come to mind for many investors at all, as for all intents and purposes the company it is today didn’t exist until a few months ago. Age, however, has nothing to do with how disruptive it could prove to be for the likes of Euroseas or Star Bulk Carriers. Its underlying idea is brilliant, and it’s only a matter of time before it catches on within the commodity-transportation community.

    What if there was a way to remove all the risks and hassle of shipping things like pellets or beans or salt – normally delivered in drybulk vessels – but still utilize all the flexibility of intermodal containers (the big 20-foot boxes that fit on a truck and a train and on top of the deck of a boat)? There is. It’s called Translock2 (Translock Squared). It was designed by Double Crown Resources, and it’s going to revolutionize the way many material companies deliver their goods.

    The nearby image is a Translock2 container. It should look familiar – it’s essentially an intermodal container in terms of size and shape, but mechanically is a delivery and dispensing platform for drybulk goods. The design allows commodities like sand or livestock feed to be moved with all the flexibility of intermodal transportation, but without any of the headache of aggregating and splitting up those goods to get them properly shipped to their final destination. With Translock2, drybulk purchases are packaged up by the seller at the supply source, and then delivered — just as ordered — all the way to the buyer’s site in the container. No material is lost en route, and no distributor or middleman needs to bother splitting up one large order into smaller ones.

    Its development is worth noting, as it explicitly circumvents the need for drybulk ves

best shares to invest in now: Discover Financial Services(DFS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We get the bull case.American Express is a blue-chip Dow component with an iconic global brand. It generates >30% returns on tangible, but it is trading well below its historical multiple and has underperformed post the election. Costco is now in the rearview mirror, and the string of negative surprises that have weighed on the stock are now poised to abate and position the company to start surprising positively. With Capital One Financial (COF), Discover Financial Services (DFS), and Synchrony Financial (SYF) all trading near their historical peaks, some have concluded thatAmerican Express is headed back to its historical high above $90. While this thought process may sound logical, we believe it only works in a world where generalists are steering the ship, and view it as highly susceptible to unraveling when negative revisions hit. American Express is not the business it once was, it doesnt have the same earnings power, and, in our view, it doesnt deserve to trade near its historical valuation.

    While a new year has been ushered in, it is clear PayPal’s philosophy has not changed. Last week, PayPal entered into another major agreement, this time with credit card issuerDiscover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS).

  • [By JACK HOUGH]

    Like CVS, Discover has trounced the broad market over the long term but sold off recently. It’s down more than 15% this year. Costs rose early in the year in part due to one-time expenses related to anti-money-laundering efforts and other regulatory concerns. Analysts predict an offsetting decline in expenses next year. Don’t confuse Discover with a company that’s primarily in the business of running a credit-card network, like Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). It’s basically a credit-card lender, like Capital One Financial (COF), that runs its own network to gain a competitive advantage.

    By saving on network fees, Discover can offer attractive card rewards, including a popular cash-back program. Any card lender can offer cash back, of course, but being too aggressive risks hurting margins. Discover has grown its portfolio of credit-card loans much faster than big banks have in recent years. And it has done so with industry-leading returns on capital. Rising growth could be on the way. Early this year, Discover went on a marketing spree. Last quarter, it reported its best card growth since 2007. Historically, new-card growth and loan growth have been closely correlated. In a November note to investors, Morgan Stanley analyst Cheryl Pate predicted accelerating loan growth within six months. Meanwhile, defaults remain low. Shares sell for less than 10 times projected earnings for the next four quarters, down from 12 times at the end of last year. They could rise 20% on a combination of earnings growth and a valuation rebound. The dividend yield is 2%.
