Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

The fintech dLocal that specializes in cross-border payments for emerging markets, has integrated AliPay, UnionPay and WeChat Pay – China’s three major digital payments providers – into its platform. The addition for Uruguay-based dLocal with a US presence is touted as enabling global merchants to reach some “300 million Chinese consumers.”

Collectively these three providers captured the vast bulk of the Chinese market for online payments (over 70%), which translated into $2.9 trillion (trn) of such payments in 2016.

According to the market research firm Analysys, for the first quarter of 2017 Alipay, which was founded by Alibaba Group in 2004 and its founder Jack Ma, accounted for around 54% share of mobile transaction value while WeChat Pay garnered a 40% share.

For the Uruguayan-based dLocal, which has largely been focused on the Latin American region and other emerging markets, it expands the company’s services to Asia. It is couched as enabling the firm to “offer a broader portfolio of payments and country coverage to global merchants” who want to reach some 2 billion (bn) emerging consumers in markets where payment methods are different of those in Europe and the US.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Arista Networks, Inc.(ANET)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street had its Cinco de Mayo celebration a day early, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished the session with a gain of more than 330 points. Investors were excited about what they saw as a Goldilocks-like reading on the U.S. economy in the April employment report, which featured modest job growth, rock-bottom unemployment rates, and slow enough wage growth to quell inflation fears and give the Federal Reserve latitude to raise interest rates more slowly going forward. Yet some companies still suffered at least perceived setbacks that sent their shares lower. Fluor (NYSE:FLR), Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), and Appian (NASDAQ:APPN) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Tuesday continued the stock market’s upward momentum, with major benchmarks all posting solid gains and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite seeing an especially substantial advance. Earnings helped to lead the indexes higher, with good reports from several sectors of the market helping to build enthusiasm among investors that 2018 could extend the current bull run to a full decade even with the recent correction. Story stocks did particularly well, and Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), and Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Tariffs are overshadowing the start of earnings season. This week, a variety of Wall Street banks, consumer goods, and airline companies report for the previous quarter. While profits are expected to remain strong, the outlook for the rest of the year is expected to take into account the impact of tariffs on global trade. This is likely to weigh on investor sentiment. According to a report from real estate giant REIS Inc., mall vacancies have hit a six-year high at 8.6% last quarter. The fall of brick-and-mortar stores has been fueled by the rise of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), which continues to see its stock surge to new highs. It’s not too late to get in on Amazon at a fraction of the cost of today’s shares. We’ll show you how… right here. Speaking of Amazon, the e-commerce giant recently made a big splash in the pharmacy benefits business after its purchase of online benefits provider PillPack. This purchase has many analysts convinced that Amazon is about to do to pharmacies what it has done to malls over the last decade. And while Amazon is going to be a major player in the drug-delivery business in the future, there is one stock that is going to stave off any further attack from Amazon and the delivery business. Best of all, this stock has an incredible VQScore, and it’s trading at a huge discount.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The U.S. markets are preparing for the eighth interest rate hike since 2015, and the Federal Reserve may not be done yet. Markets are weighing the possibility that the Fed may raise rates one more time this year (in December). The hikes come as the Fed is attempting to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. When Powell speaks this afternoon, expect a few questions about the impact of the trade war between the United States and China. Reporters will also likely want to know about geopolitical risks to the U.S. economy and how they might affect growth in a higher-interest-rate environment. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump gave a speech before the United Nations General Assembly. During his talk, Trump praised the U.S. economy and defended his administration’s actions this year on trade. Trump said that the United States will no longer endure “abuse” from other trade partners. The U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also said Tuesday that the U.S. is prepared to proceed on a new trade deal with Mexico without the participation of Canada. Oil prices are in focus after President Trump called out OPEC members before the U.N. on Tuesday. During his talk, Trump accused OPEC and non-OPEC participants in collusion efforts on production and prices of ripping off the rest of the world.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    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.

    In this segment of the Motley Fool Money podcast, host Chris Hill and Fool analysts Jason Moser, Matt Argersinger, and Ron Gross reflect on the latest results from Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO). Like all video game companies not named Epic, it’s suffering a bit from the overwhelming popularity of Fortnite Battle Royale, but the Fools — like its execs on the conference call — are more focused on Take-Two’s strengths.

    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.

    Two case studies in dividend growth investing: 1. Lowes (NYSE:LOW)

    To illustrate the power of dividend growth stocks, we’ll take a closer look at a home improvement giant Lowes, which has an impressive dividend history. The company, which has paid dividends since it came public in 1961, has earned the title of Dividend King after having raised its payout for 54 consecutive years. That steadily growing dividend has helped Lowes vastly outperform the S&P 500. Over the last decade alone, Lowes produced a total return of more than 315% while the S&P 500’s total return has been just over 135%.

    Unlike rival Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW), Home Depot is done expanding its store base, and so its comparable-store sales metric, describing sales at existing locations, is the key growth figure to follow. That rate is expected to slow to about 5% in 2018 from last year’s scorching 7% result. But management may update that target on Tuesday to reflect the latest demand trends. Lowe’s current forecast calls for a more modest 3.5% comps improvement this year.
