    The stock market did well on Friday, with most major benchmarks gaining ground. At first, some believed that an unexpected shortfall in the number of jobs created in the U.S. economy in July might hold back stocks, but even though small-cap indexes steadily fell, their large-cap counterparts were generally higher. Earnings season continues to go quite well, and many companies reported good results that sent their shares soaring. GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Wingstop (NASDAQ:WING), and Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Though concerns have been raised that the analog and MCU markets are at risk of seeing an inventory correction (they haven’t had a major one in a while), given signs of excessive ordering and stretched lead times, TI and STMicro’s numbers suggest conditions remain good for now. That’s particularly true in industrial and auto markets where trends such as factory automation, ADAS adoption and electric/hybrid car sales are boosting chip demand. Several other analog/MCU firms, including Microchip (MCHP) , ON Semiconductor (ON) , Maxim Integrated (MXIM) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) , will be reporting soon.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2019

If you’re able to buy shares of a small growth stock — say, a company with a market capitalization of less than $20 billion — before the rest of the market catches on to the story, it can be a life-changing investment. 

Consider, for instance, the 1997 investment that Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner made in — at the time — a tiny company called Amazon. With a split-adjusted purchase price of just $3.19, a simple $10,000 investment back then is now worth $4.5 million.

But what is a growth stock? There’s no hard-and-fast definition. Perhaps it’s best to define this type of investing in the context of a few other types of investing.

Growth stocks: Stocks you buy because you believe the stock’s price could increase substantially — usually an uncapped amount with enormous upside potential. Revenue often increases dramatically. This tends to be a high-risk/high-reward type of investing.  Income stocks: Stocks you buy because you want to receive regular dividends. Revenue growth need not be much higher than inflation. These companies tend to be larger and more stable and offer a lower-risk/lower-reward profile. Value stocks: Stocks you buy because — like growth stocks — you believe the stock’s price will go up. Unlike growth stocks, however, this is because you believe the stock to be currently undervalued.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: ON Semiconductor Corporation(ON)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Jackson]

    Aggressive accounts may want to look at this smaller cap play. ON Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: ON) is a vendor of analog power management, analog signal conditioning, standard logic integrated circuits and discrete chips into the automotive, communications, computing, consumer, industrial and medical applications. The company is in the midst of a transformation from a seller of commodity discrete chips into higher value added analog integrated circuits, both through organic growth and acquisitions.

  • [By ]

    Though concerns have been raised that the analog and MCU markets are at risk of seeing an inventory correction (they haven’t had a major one in a while), given signs of excessive ordering and stretched lead times, TI and STMicro’s numbers suggest conditions remain good for now. That’s particularly true in industrial and auto markets where trends such as factory automation, ADAS adoption and electric/hybrid car sales are boosting chip demand. Several other analog/MCU firms, including Microchip (MCHP) , ON Semiconductor (ON) , Maxim Integrated (MXIM) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) , will be reporting soon.

    Gold prices saw a slight gain in pre-market hours. But those gains could surge as markets continue to face questions about inflation and a weaker U.S. dollar. Gold prices saw one of their biggest one-day declines in two months on Friday. Investors are looking at this as a solid entry point given price expectations from Money Morning Resource Specialist Peter Krauth. Peter expects that gold prices will reach $1,400 by the end of June and rise to as high as $1,500 by December.

    There are a number of factors that have contributed to my decision to go net short in a big way, including:

    Narrow Market Leadership. We’re back to a market that’s basically led by the FAANGs — Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) , Apple (AAPL) , Netflix (NFLX) and Google/Alphabet (GOOG) ,  (GOOGL) . Rising Short-Term Interest Rates. The 2-year U.S. note yield is up about 1.3 basis points at 2.39%. Complacency. I’m seeing more investor complacency — anecdotally, in the business media and elsewhere — ever since market’s main indices rallied off of their recent lows.
