Hot Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

When will the world see its first trillionaire? A British charity estimates that it could happen within 25 years and that it will be none other than Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Oxfam, the U.K. world hunger organization, meant to shame the world’s richest with its list of multi-billionaires. Which is odd, considering that Gates is a founder, with Warren Buffett, of The Giving Pledge and has spent billions through his foundation fighting tropical disease and hunger.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019: NVIDIA Corporation(NVDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Danny Vena]

    Over the last several years, NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) has been on a tear, fueled by higher demand for its industry-leading graphics processing units (GPUs). The ranks of casual gamers have been growing, and wider adoption of the company’s processors for artificial intelligence (AI) systems has opened up a whole new area of growth for the company. The stock has soared, up nearly 1,000% over the past three years and up 65% so far in 2018.

    NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) published a business update on Thursday evening, covering the second quarter of the company’s fiscal 2019.

  • [By Timothy Green]

    Graphics chip leader NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) will report its fourth-quarter results after the market closes on Thursday. The company is dealing with a litany of problems that will put an end to its impressive growth streak, including excess gaming GPU inventory, weak sales of its latest graphics cards, a data center slowdown, and sluggish demand from China.

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.

    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.

    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.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    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).

Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

&l;p&g;Most of us have had to try to confront some awkward issues with aging parents. It might be getting them to talk about the need for help at home. It could be about giving up those car keys. Hardest of all, perhaps, is the subject of end of life and advance healthcare planning. Estate planners have documents for that, but no one in healthcare is going to understand them unless families or loved ones are clear about the aging person&s;s wishes and can advocate for them.

&a;nbsp;

A document that empowers a decision maker to tell the medical providers what the elder wants are just vague enough to be capable of interpretation in several ways. For example, what is meant by &q;extraordinary measures&q; or &q;life prolonging treatment&q;, typical of words used in advance healthcare directives? Some will read them one way and others will see them differently. A talk with an aging parent can clear up vagueness but you need to know what to ask.

Not only have I had to bring up these topics with my own inlaws, I hear about a lot of friends who are in the same situation. Being Boomers, we may have aging parents still with us. If not, we are&q; the elders&q; ourselves and we need to have these discussions with our adult kids, friends or whomever we want to assign the task of being our own advocates. The good news is that we can get downloadable tools to help us.

However, Kaby Lake G’s arrival also confused many consumers, who erroneously thought it was an APU that merged an Intel CPU with an AMD GPU. That launch arguably overshadowed Ryzen Mobile’s arrival.

Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: HealthEquity, Inc.(HQY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Feroldi]

    So where am I going to invest my capital? While I’m still refining my list, here are seven stocks that I currently own that I’m strongly considering adding to:

    Hubspot (NYSE: HUBS) — A software-as-a-service provider that is pioneering the shift toward “inbound” marketing. HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider of Taser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-led payroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE) — The company’s push to the cloud is driving double-digit gains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — A software-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in several niche markets.  BlackLine (NASDAQ: BL) — A software company that is attempting to bring the accounting process into the 21st century. 

    All seven of these businesses are poised to deliver double-digit organic revenue and profit growth over the next five years. That’s a prospect I find quite enticing, and I think the odds are very favorable that they’ll outperform Apple as a group from here.
