&l;p class=&q;tweet_line&q;&g;The notion that August 22 marks the longest bull market history is meaningless. Since the S&a;amp;P 500 bottomed on March 9, 2009 there has been four bull markets followed by four corrections.

For this analysis I will focus on the S&a;amp;P 500, which set a &a;lsquo;panic low&a;rsquo; of 666.79 on March 9, 2009. Those of you who have been reading my analysis over the last 30-plus years know that I was pounding the table looking for a 20% to 40% rally from that low. This first bull market peaked at 1,217.28 during the week of April 23, 2010 for a bull market of 82.6%.

By definition a bull market ends with a correction of 10% or more. During the week of July 2, 2010, the S&a;amp;P 500 declined by 16.9% to 1,010.91.

Best High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc.(ICPT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Max Byerly]

    JMP Securities upgraded shares of Intercept Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ICPT) from a market perform rating to an outperform rating in a research report report published on Wednesday morning, Marketbeat.com reports. JMP Securities currently has $175.00 price target on the biopharmaceutical company’s stock, up from their prior price target of $75.00.

    If that line holds true, this emerging space should be able to support multiple new drugs, meaning that the current leaders in the field — Intercept Pharmceuticals (NASDAQ:ICPT) and Genfit — probably won’t be able to monopolize the market before other competitors like Viking get their drugs past the FDA. In fact, this market is so large it could feasibly support several blockbuster level products. 

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Intercept Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ICPT) shares jumped on Tuesday after the firm announced results for its Phase 3 Regenerate study of obeticholic acid (OCA) in patients with liver fibrosis due to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).

  • [By George Budwell]

    Shares of Intercept Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ICPT) rose by as much as 17% on above-average volume Monday. The spark?

    The drugmaker’s shares were responding positively to back-to-back upgrades from analysts at Goldman Sachs and Wedbush on Monday. For instance, Goldman’s Salveen Richter upgraded Intercept’s shares from a sell to a buy rating, and hiked the firm’s 12-month price target from $46 to $157 a share. Wedbush, on the other hand, doled out a $217 price target on the stock Monday morning. Wedbush’s noteworthy price target implies a monstrous 126% upside potential from where Intercept’s shares closed last week.

    However, neither of these companies may be the first to win an FDA OK in the indication. Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) and Intercept (NASDAQ:ICPT) are already conducting phase 3 trials of their respective NASH drugs, and each of them expects to report data that could lead to an FDA filing for approval in 2019. Gilead Sciences plans to report data for selonsertib, an apoptosis signal-regulating kinase 1 (ASK1) inhibitor that seeks to reduce ASK1 activity to curb liver inflammation and scarring, and Intercept plans to report data for Ocaliva, a semisynthetic bile acid analogue FXR agonist that’s already FDA-approved for primary biliary cholangitis (PBC).

    Stocks to Watch Today: KR, JPM, AAPL, BABA
    Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) leads a busy day of earnings reports. The grocery giant reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.41, a figure that beat Wall Street estimates by $0.03. The firm also topped revenue expectations and issued a full-year forecast in line with analysts’ expectations. Is JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon going to run against President Donald Trump in 2020? Some are speculating after Dimon said Wednesday that he could beat Trump because he is “smarter” than the president. Dimon also took at a shot at the original source of Trump’s wealth. “And by the way this wealthy New Yorker actually earned his money,” Dimon said. “It wasn’t a gift from daddy.” Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) are on the move after the firm unveiled its new iPhone model during its annual September event. The company’s latest model is called the iPhone XS and XS Max and features a staggering 6.5-inch screen. The price point for the phone is $1,099 per unit. The firm also unveiled a new Apple Watch, which features a larger display and a built-in electrocardiogram. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA) generated a lot of attention last week after Jack Ma announced that he would step down from his role of executive chair. That has fueled a dip in the stock and has left a lot of Alibaba shares at “on sale” prices. In fact, Wall Street believes that an 83% gain is on the horizon. But Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon thinks that this stock is going way higher than a $293 analyst target. Look for earnings reports from Adobe Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: ADBE), Fred’s Inc. (NASDAQ: FRED), and Brady Corp. (NYSE: BRC).

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Given its valuation, Under Armour (NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA) is still a risky stock here, but the first quarter 2018 financial results were released earlier this week, which weren’t as bad as many thought, and the resulting price action gave the bulls some hope.

The reversal in the share price on the morning of the report was the first positive: the initial reaction to the Q1 ’18 earnings report was that the stock rose 2.6% pre-open, and then fell 6% during the conference call (trading down near $17), and then once the NYSE opened and general trading began, UAA rose steadily all day, finishing within $0.10 of its high and closing over $18.

It doesn’t seem like much, but technically-inclined investors will tell you that is far better action than the opposite on a company reporting a strong quarter.

However, let’s look at the numbers:

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now: 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.
