Best High Tech Stocks For 2019: National Beverage Corp.(FIZZ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Shareholders of soda and sparkling-water specialist National Beverage (NASDAQ:FIZZ) trailed the market last month as its stock fell 18% compared to a 3% spike in the S&P 500, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

  • [By Brian Feroldi]

    I’ve personally made several profitable investments over the last decade by simply observing my own buying habits. Here are a few recent examples:

    My family rarely eats out, but when we do we like to buy from healthier quick-service restaurants, such as Chipotle (NYSE:CMG) or Panera Bread, instead of full-service restaurants or traditional fast food places Wendy’s or McDonald’s. My wife and I have eliminated soda from our lives. The only beverages that I drink now are water and Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) coffee. My wife prefers to drink sparkling water like National Beverages’ (NASDAQ:FIZZ) La Croix brand.  We mostly buy organic food and we love to shop at stores like Whole Foods (now owned by Amazon.com) and Trader Joes. We ditched cable a few years ago and now all of our entertainment needs are met by streaming services that are offered by Amazon.com, Netflix, and Alphabet’s YouTube. Most of our household items and gifts that are purchased online at Amazon.com or Wayfair. 

    I’d bet that if you reviewed your credit card statements, you’d quickly recognize a few patterns as well. Ask yourself: Are there any retails stores or restaurant concepts that you frequent now but didn’t before? Are there any new foods or drinks that you now buy from the grocery store? Have you become a raving fan of a particular website or app?

Top Blue Chip Stocks For 2019

Have you ever “unplugged” from your cell phone? If you have, you’ve likely experienced the phenomenon of phantom vibrations — the perception that your phone is ringing or vibrating when in fact it’s not. (In the 1990s, people reported incidences of “phantom pager syndrome.”)

We’ve become so accustomed to being “connected” that for many it controls our lives. My cell phone is the first thing I reach for in the morning (and usually the last thing I’ve touched before falling asleep). I can turn on and adjust the music streaming through my Sonos speakers, my Apple TV, and my heat and air conditioning. Heck, nowadays you can use your smartphone to lock and unlock your doors, control your lights, open your garage, start your car… I even use it to track the internal temperature of whatever meat I’m smoking.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Pilgrim's Pride Corporation(PPC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Udovich]

    Thanksgiving is almost here but the exit of both Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NYSE: PPC) and Smithfield Foods (NYSE: SFD) to focus on their chicken or pork businesses (the latter was also acquired by the Chinese) leaves just two big Thanksgiving turkey stocks, Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) and Seaboard Corporation (NYSEAMEX: SEB), for investors to consider. According to the American Far Bureau, a 16-pound turkey will (on average) come in at a total of $22.74 this year or roughly $1.42 per pound for a decrease of 2 cents per pound or a total of 30 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2015. The price drop may be a transition back to the norm as the significant bird flu outbreak last year hurt the nations supply of both turkey and eggs.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation(SWHC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Smith & Wesson’s (SWHC) stock has been under pressure ever since Donald Trump’s election victory–it appears that the perceived threat to take away guns did wonders for the gun manufacturer’s sales. Now, Smith & Wesson might also have to deal with competitive pressures that could “challenge” its market share, says Wunderlich’s Rommel Dionisio:

    Getty Images

    Given the upcoming mid-January Shot Show, the firearms industrys most important annual trade show, several prominent competitors have already begun to unveil new products for 2017. The flurry of major new product introductions from leading players in the field into the two fastest growing categories of firearms, modern sporting rifles (MSRs) and compact/concealed carry handguns, appear meaningfully more competitive than usual, which could challenge Smith & Wessons (SWHC) market share, which had been rising impressively the past several years. Industry sales are also likely to slow, following unusually high growth in 2016. We maintain our price target of $26, derived using an EV/2016E EBITDA multiple of 6.0x.

    Shares of Smith & Wesson have dropped 1.5% to $21.78 at 12:07 p.m. today.

    Exploding biotech names are nothing new to this bull market. You might recall the headline swirling around Endocyte Inc. (NASDAQ:ECYT) as it posted one-day gains of more than 150% during the fourth quarter. The triple-digit move was sparked by a licensing agreement for the firms phase 3 prostate cancer drug. Now, these moves are becoming almost commonplace.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd.(TSM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    For many years, NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) has relied on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) to manufacture the graphics chips it designs. Today, most of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture-based graphics processors — from the GeForce GTX 1060, designed for mainstream PC gamers, all the way through its cutting edge Tesla P100 datacenter accelerators — are manufactured by TSMC.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    To illustrate my point, Intel’s chief competitor, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), has said that its 7-nanometer technology, which should go into mass production in the first half of 2018, delivers a roughly 1.63-fold density improvement over its 10-nanometer technology.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    Contract-chip manufacturing giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) recently announced its earnings results, provided forward guidance for the current quarter, and provided a lot of insight on the ramp-up of its next-generation chip-manufacturing technology, called 10-nanometers (10nm for short).

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    As part of this discussion, he took the time to explain how the technology that Intel calls 14 nanometers is more like what its competitors — Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.(NYSE:TSM) — call 10 nanometers (smaller is generally believed to be better).

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    A while back, DigiTimes reported that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), a major contract chip manufacturer, planned to introduce an enhanced variant of its 16nm manufacturing technology dubbed “12nm.”

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: TiGenix NV (TGXSF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Leuven, Belgium-based Tigenix (OTC:TGXSF) filed to go public in the U.S. in late 2015, only to become entangled with Bavarian Nordic (OTC:BVNKF) and Basilea Pharmaceutica (OTC:BPMUF) as the European drugmakers pulled back from NASDAQ. Tigenix subsequently increased its bank account following a 23.75 million placement in Belgium, and added an additional 25 million via a relationship with Takeda, before coming back to Wall Street in October 2016 with a revamped slate of underwriters.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: BlackBerry Limited(BBRY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Piyush Arora]

    The point that Im trying to make is that BlackBerry is facing an acute shortage of apps, and the fixes available to mitigate the issue, are getting outdated and might not necessarily work in 2017. The company needs to do something about its BB10 OS, otherwise, its remaining base of loyal users might abandon the platform as well. (See Also: BlackBerry Stock: BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) Might Gain From The Tesla Motors Inc Hack)

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    BlackBerry’s (NSDQ:BBRY)turnaround has been moving at snail’s pace. In that context, BlackBerry’s deal with Ford (NYSE:F) to expand usage of its QNX software in the latter’s line of connected cars was welcome news. Many see BBRY’s focus on automotive technology as a potential profit center. Norwegian security firm, Promon, recently gave a demonstration of howTesla (NSDQ:TSLA) cars can be stolen by hackers through the company’s official android application, which many car owners use to interact with their vehicles. This was one of the latest unflattering events to take place for Tesla. But this very news can be good for Blackberry. Here’s why.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ: BBRY) reported an unexpected profit for the first quarter. However, sales trailed expectations. The company also announced a stock buyback program.

  • [By Jack Foley]

    BlackBerry(NSDQ:BBRY)stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).

  • [By Kumar Abhishek]

    Shares of Ontario-basedsoftware companyBlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) jumped more than 16% in yesterday’s trade,creating a new 52-week highafter the company announced that it has won a windfall of $814.9 million in an interim arbitrationaward against Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM).Moreover, the arbitration award is not appealable by Qualcomm. The final award which will include interest rates and legal fees will be decided on May 31st. The windfall gain has earned BBRY stock price target upgrades from several analysts. The arbitration relates to an overpayment of royalty by BlackBerry Ltd between 2010 and 2015. The question now is, does this one-time award change anything for BlackBerry Ltd stock?

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    Shares of San Diego, California-based QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM)plunged further, losing more than 3.5% in yesterday’s trade. QCOM stock is now near its lowest levels since the post-earnings sell off. QCOM stock dipped on account of the smartphone chipmaker losing an arbitration case against BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY). Qualcomm was ordered to refund a sum of nearly $815M to the software company. This comes on the back of the San Diego company’s latest countersuit againstApple (NASDAQ:AAPL). QCOM stock had already been battered this year on account of its mounting legal troubles. With Qualcomm stock trading at such low levels, investors could be puzzled about whether they should buy this dip in QCOM stock.Is QCOM stock headed much lower? Will Qualcomm stock rebound ahead of its earnings? Let’s take a closer look.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Canon, Inc.(CAJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Carroll]

    Nikon’s story is similar to what’s plaguing its Japanese rival, Canon (NYSE: CAJ  ) . Canon’s stock has nosedived by 20% year to date, but the stock’s recovered nearly 3% over the past month. Don’t let appearances fool you: The company slashed its full-year sales and profit forecasts back in July, as the worldwide camera market has slumped, and as smartphones continue to take over this aging niche. Canon’s route back to respectability looks like a treacherous climb.

    Miscellaneous shorts. Lamensdorf is also betting against Japanese printer and camera giant Canon (CAJ) since he believes the company still hasn’t figured out a way to compete with smartphones.
