    As of December 2017, Greenlight Re’s major (10%+) long positions were General Motors (GM), Brighthouse Financial (BHF), gold (GLD), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), and Mylan (MYL). It also holds a long position in Micron (MU), which was the best positive contributor to its portfolio in the first quarter of 2018. These long positions were balanced by shorts in Tesla (TSLA), Netflix (NFLX), and other “bubble basket” stocks. The portfolio is also short Assured Guaranty (AGO), a municipal bond insurer, a position which is hedged by a simultaneous long in Puerto Rican debt. Overall, the portfolio is 93% gross long and 65% gross short. Unlike most insurance portfolios, just 0.5% of investments are in debt instruments and, in fact, Greenlight Re’s short portfolio was 11% allocated to sovereign debt.

    For the third quarter, the company reported cash and equivalents of $470.4 million, while net income came in at $50 million (includes a gain of $78.7 million from the Immunomedics’ warrant). Without the one-time gain, its loss of $28.7 million would still be an improvement over net loss of $31.8 million for the same quarter last year. For the fourth quarter, the company is guiding for ADCETRIS sales in the range of $82 million to $84 million (total revenue of $128 million to $130 million). In addition to the growing opportunity for ADCETRIS (peak sales in excess of $1 billion) and the intriguing prospects of tucatinib, the company has a promising pipeline of ADC candidates and immuno-oncology assets. Partnered programs with the likes of AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV), Astellas (OTCPK:ALPMY), Genmab (OTCPK:GMXAY), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), Genentech and many more also lend additional credibility to the story.

Its Time to Double Down on Intel Stock

I was recently underwater on my latest investment in Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). But rather than sell my shares of INTC stock, I doubled down.

Sign of Intel (INTC stock) at entrance of The Intel Museum in Silicon ValleySign of Intel (INTC stock) at entrance of The Intel Museum in Silicon Valley

While I love my shares in Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) and Taiwan Semiconductor (NYSE:TSM), I refuse to believe the conventional wisdom that Intel is a dead parrot.

This is a chip company selling at less than 12 times earnings. It pays a dividend yielding 2.6%. It just reported quarterly earnings of $5.1 billion, or $1.24 per share, on revenue of $19.6 billion. That’s more than 20 cents of every dollar hitting the net income line.

Intel’s performance looks bad only compared to other semiconductor companies. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) has delivered twice Intel’s capital gains in 2021. Even Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) has done better.

But I’m not buying for yesterday. I’m buying for tomorrow.

The President’s Bet on Intel

If President Joe Biden’s Administration is betting big on any U.S. company, it’s Intel.

The Administration pledged $50 billion for semiconductors as part of its Build Back Better plan. That money is meant to not only end the current chip shortage, but to ensure future semiconductors are made in America.

As a U.S.-based chip manufacturer, Intel will likely be one of the primary recipients of those funds. It’s putting $20 billion into two new Arizona fabrication plants and is looking for a U.S. site on which it will spend $100 billion over the next decade.

CEO Pat Gelsinger insists he can match the ultraviolet innovations of Taiwan Semiconductor, which will soon produce chips with circuit lines just three nanometers apart. In the meantime, he’ll take all their extra production.

He’s also talking up a new “angstrom” era starting in 2024. An angstrom is one-tenth of a nanometer. The new technology that will come with this era is dubbed the RibbonFET and is Intel’s first new transistor technology since 2011.

Against All Odds, INTC Stock May Still Be a Winner

Gelsinger has admitted to China’s cost advantages. It will cost twice as much to build chips in the U.S. as it would to build them there. It’s why companies that just design chips, like Nvidia and AMD, are worth more than those that make them.

Moore’s Second Law holds that while chips get cheaper over time, the process of making them gets more expensive. Gelsinger is building in the U.S. anyway, hoping government support will allow the company to be competitive.

Intel is continuing to lose market share in the data center to AMD, but it’s not losing its lead. It will still surpass a 30% share by the end of 2021, which is twice the share AMD can expect in the same timeframe.

Despite efforts by Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and other Cloud Czars to build their own chips, semiconductors are still niche products. Data center revenue for the most recent quarter was just behind that of 2020, when the pandemic saw cloud spending spike.

What the Bulls and Bears See in INTC Stock

Analysts remain unimpressed. They say Intel’s second quarter revenue was no better than it was a year ago. INTC stock fell after earnings were released. Seven of the 27 analysts following Intel at TipRanks now say you should sell it. InvestorPlace contributor Tyler Craig agrees.

Bears are seeing AMD’s continued gains in revenue and market share and believe chip-making remains a losing proposition. Intel is offering “flowery promises,” but after watching AMD stock out-gain Intel for a decade, they’re sticking with what works.

Until recently, I was a notable Intel bear. I was especially hard on former CEO Brian Krzanich, who was finally let go after he was found to be in a relationship with an employee. Among several actions he took ranging from questionable to downright criminal, he stripped Intel of its top executives which hindered its growth.

I thought Krzanich’s successor, Robert Swan, was in over his head. But to Swan’s credit, he did recruit Gelsinger, who is a different cat. He’s getting the band back together. When it’s hitting on all cylinders, Intel is the mightiest manufacturing machine America has ever seen.

Top Stocks To Invest In 2019

When World War II ended, no industry was stronger or more important than American steel.

But over the last 60 years, the industry has suffered a steady decline, becoming less competitive and far less central to the US economy.

Immediately after the war, the global demand for steel was more voracious than ever. Mills owned by foreign competitors had been devastated by the bombings. Cities in Europe and Asia needed to rebuild, and American cities were growing rapidly as well. Demand for new cars was great, and the Interstate Highway was under construction.

America’s steel mills were producing steel at a furious pace, making more than half the world’s steel in the late 1940s, and about 40% of the world’s steel throughout the 1950s.

In the 10 years starting in 1948, American steel mills averaged nearly 700,000 workers. Today only 83,000 people still work in the nation’s steel mills.

Manufacturing changes

Part of that decline is due to much more efficient processes. The basic oxygen furnaces and continuous casters now in use can make steel using a fraction of the work, energy and manpower required by open hearth furnaces the industry used during its heyday.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Friday
    The Lira slumped 6% on news that the Trump administration is willing to increase economic sanctions on the embattled country unless it releases Andrew Brunson, an American evangelical pastor who has been detained. Markets spent most of Thursday cheering trade developments between U.S. and China, largely ignoring this ongoing drama. However, it’s important to remember that Turkey’s currency crisis may be a tremendous profit opportunity. Here’s what you need to know. Semiconductor shares fell this morning as investors worried that the two-year surge in chip companies could be losing steam. Shares of Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT) fell more than 5% after the world’s largest semiconductor company fell short of quarterly expectations and issued a rather unimpressive outlook. The news pulled down shares of Micron Technology (Nasdaq: MU) and Intel Corporation (NYSE: INTU).
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: DE, NVDA, JWN
    A light day of earnings reports features just Deere & Company (NYSE: DE). The agricultural machinery giant will attempt to keep momentum going despite the ongoing slump in farm incomes around the country. With soybean and corn prices moving lower, many farmers might now be able to purchase “new paint” – also known as new machinery. This factor could impact the company’s forward guidance. Shares of NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) were off 2.5% after the firm reported quarterly earnings after the bell Thursday. The firm topped Wall Street earnings expectations by 10 cents with a $1.76 figure. However, the firm reduced its current quarter guidance due to falling demand in the cryptocurrency industry. Shares of Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) popped more than 7% after the firm reported stronger than expected same-story growth and positive earnings expectation. The firm r

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

What happened

Shares of Net1 UEPS Technologies (NASDAQ:UEPS) jumped 15.7% on Friday after the alternative-payment systems specialist announced stronger-than-expected fiscal third-quarter 2018 results and an encouraging development regarding its social grants payments contract in South Africa.

Net1 UEPS’ quarterly revenue grew 10% year over year to $162.7 million, and translated to GAAP earnings of $3 million, or $0.05 per share. On a non-GAAP basis, however — which notably adjusts for one-time items like stock-based compensation and asset-impairment costs — earnings arrived at $53.8 million, or $0.95 per share, including a $0.52-per-share fair-value adjustment related to its investment in South African mobile operator CellC. Through that lens, Net1 UEPS handily beat expectations for adjusted earnings of $0.42 per share on revenue of $146.8 million.

    Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) received approval from the U.S. Transportation Department to begin pilot programs for drone delivery services. Missing from the list of approved companies was Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN). The tech giant has long been an advocate for drone delivery, and its absence came as a surprise to the tech community. It will be a busy day for economic data announcements. Most important will be a report on inflation at 8:30 EDT. Strong price growth has picked up to start the year. This has many economists anticipating that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates to stave off additional inflation. Meanwhile, the Bank of England announced that it will hold its benchmark interest rate at 0.5%. The country is still facing economic uncertainty over Brexit.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: BKNG, SHLD, F
    A weak guidance report has shares of Booking Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: BKNG) off 6% this morning. Although the travel site operator easily topped Wall Street earnings and revenue expectations, the firm once known as Priceline offered a weak 2018 outlook. That sent investors heading for the exits.
    Sears Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: SHLD) stock popped more than 16% on Wednesday afternoon. The news came after the embattled retail company announced plans to partner with Amazon.com to sell tires. The plan is part of the company’s broader turnaround strategy to make the retail firm profitable again. Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) made a stunning announcement on Wednesday. The company said that it will halt production of its F-Series pickup truck. But the move will only be temporary. A fire at a Michigan plant temporarily caused the automotive giant to run out of parts for the top-selling U.S. vehicle. The shutdown could last several weeks, although the company said it has enough parts inventory to last about 12 weeks. Look for additional earnings reports from Nvidia Corp. (Nasdaq: NVDA

    Below is Renaissance Capital’s list of the second quarter’s 10 largest IPOs ranked by deal size. We’ve also included the stock’s first-day pop (or decline) and its return as of the most recent close. Spotify Technology S.A. (NYSE: SPOT) is not included because its IPO was a direct offering that did not raise any new cash. Spotify shares popped nearly 13% on the April offering date, and the return to date is 27%.

    AXA Equitable Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EQH): $2.75 billion; first-day pop of 1.7%; return to date: 1.3% GreenSky LLC (NASDAQ: GSKY): $874 million: pop of 1.6%; return of −7.9% BJ’s Wholesale Club Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BJ): $638 million; pop and return of 29.4% DocuSign Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU): $629 million; pop of 37.0%; return of 83.0% Pivotal Software Inc. (NYSE: PVTL): $555 million; pop of 5.0%; return of 71.0% GrafTech International Ltd. (NYSE: EAF): $525 million; decline of 3.7%; return of 23.0% BrightView Holdings Inc.

    Looking ahead to the third quarter, Renaissance Capital notes 65 companies currently in the IPO pipeline looking to raise $11 billion. Real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield is the both the largest potential IPO ($500 million) and the largest based on trailing 12-month sales ($7.23 billion). The pipeline is again heavy on health care offerings (11), industrials (five), financials (five) and, in a bit of a comeback, energy (four).
