Top 5 Stocks To Buy For 2019

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is known for its steep prices and the $349 HomePod smart speaker that launched in January is no different.

But unlike Apple’s late-to-the-game entries into smartwatches and streaming devices, its Homepod offering isn’t making the splash the company hoped. The tech giant has been forced to cut its sales forecasts and scale back some orders with one of its HomePod manufacturers, according to reports from Bloomberg.

If these lackluster sales continue, the company will have trouble keeping up with other tech players in the smart home market.

The Apple HomePod is by far the most expensive home speaker on the market. Image source: Apple.

Where does the HomePod rank in the market so far? 

The HomePod claims just 4% of the smart speaker market, down from a high of 10% right after it launched in January, according to data from Slice Intelligence.

    This past week, on Tuesday, Jan. 29, California gas and electric utility PG&E (NYSE:PCG) became the latest brand-name company to declare bankruptcy and join this dubious list. Of course, PG&E’s bankruptcy, which was coerced by its potential liabilities tied to the Camp Fire in 2018 and more than a dozen other Northern California fires in 2017, will be anything but straightforward. The proceedings, ultimate resolution, and presumed reemergence from bankruptcy could take years, with the costs to the company, its consumers, and ancillary industries being almost mind-numbing.

Age is just a number.

With the stock market attaining the crown of the longest-running bull market in modern financial history, investors should not fret over the milestone and focus on the solid underpinnings driving the run instead.

On Wednesday the current bull market rally, which started on Mar. 9, 2009, becomes the longest one on record since World War II in avoiding a 20 percent or more decline, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. The market has risen more than 300 percent since its low nine-years ago. It tied the rally from 1990 to early 2000, which totaled 3,452 days, on Tuesday after it hit a new record high.

Belpointe chief strategist David Nelson warned investors to ignore the skeptics who may use the milestone as a reason to get out of the U.S. stock market.

Top Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

Companies hate to cut dividends. Knowing the backlash they’ll get from stockholders, many executives and board members consider it a desperate act of last resort. They will halt non-discretionary expenditures, reduce payroll and overhead, and even take on debt in order to maintain distributions.

And that’s exactly why dividend hikes send such a strong bullish signal. A company wouldn’t bump quarterly payouts to $0.60 per share from $0.50 unless it were fairly certain that incoming cash flows would be more than sufficient to cover the higher dividend, with room to spare. The last thing they want is to raise it today only to lower back down tomorrow. A dividend hike is a clear vote of confidence for future success.

    That much becomes clear after taking a look at fuel cell stocks Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP). The companies generated just $235 million in revenue combined last year. While that would seem to indicate that the technology has a ways to go, a closer look shows both companies are on an upward trajectory as they position to exploit decarbonization trends. It also reveals two different growth strategies.

    Shares of Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ:PLUG) certainly acted that way following the release of the company’s first-quarter 2018 operating results. Year-over-year revenue growth of 91% is pretty difficult to argue with, and management thinks second-quarter 2018 sales will grow by at least 60% from the prior-year period. All in all, it’s shaping up to be a great year for top-line growth.

    The stock market rebounded sharply on Wednesday, and major benchmarks recovered most of the ground they lost on Tuesday, posting gains of around 1%. Concerns about financial difficulties in the Italian economy seemed to ebb in investors’ minds, as those looking more closely at the problem came to the conclusion that U.S. exposure to any troubles the European Union might face as a result of pressure on its common currency wouldn’t be as large as initially feared. In addition, some good news from several parts of the market improved overall sentiment. Movado Group (NYSE:MOV), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU), and Exact Sciences (NASDAQ:EXAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    On Tuesday, the Trump administration said it would press ahead with 25% tariffs on roughly $50 billion in Chinese goods.

    Ahead of Friday’s jobs report, Automatic Data Processing (NYSE: ADP) reported that private jobs increased by 178,000 during May. That figure was actually 12,000 behind what the markets were anticipating.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: KORS, HP, KMI
    Michael Kors Holdings Ltd.(NYSE: KORS) stock was off 3.2% in pre-market hours after the company reported earnings before the bell. The luxury retailer reported earnings per share (EPS) of $0.63, a figure that topped Wall Street expectations of $0.60. The firm also beat revenue expectations and reported an increase in same-store sales. However, the firm’s earnings forecast for the year ahead came in lower than expectations, a factor that pushed its stock lower on Wednesday morning.
    Shares of HP Inc. (NYSE: HP) were up slightly after the company raised its full-year outlook and topped Wall Street earnings expectations on Tuesday. The company cited stronger demand in desktops and notebooks for its financial performance. The firm matched EPS expectations of $0.48. However, revenue came in at $14.0 billion, a figure that easily beat forecasts of $13.59.

As I said in a recent piece on PRA Health Sciences (NASDAQ:PRAH), there’s a lot to like about the contract research organization (or CRO) sector as trial complexity increases, R&D budgets continue to grow, and drug companies look to shift toward their specialties and more variable-expense models. Within this competitive space, INC Research (NASDAQ:INCR) has looked to stand out with an intense focus on Phase II-IV support, a greater skew towards smaller companies, and a more intense focus on a few specific therapeutic indications.

Whether this differentiated strategy will work is (and/or how well), in my mind, the key question for the stock. What INC Research is doing makes sense, but it’s a riskier strategy given how much spending is accounted for by larger companies and the reliance of smaller companies on market-based funding. Performance has been more erratic here of late, with soft trends in new bookings (although the company tends to be conservative here). That said, if INC can navigate through this tough stretch and drive long-term revenue growth in the high single digits, with FCF growth in the double digits, the shares look undervalued below $50.

    The importance of cellular connectivity for wearables, particularly for smartwatches, has been a theme of mine since last year, and I’m glad to see other analysts and organizations starting to pick up on it. I’ve discussed Qualcomm’s (NASDAQ:QCOM) development of the Snapdragon Wear SOC that manufacturers are using for Android Wear 2 smartwatches with LTE connectivity, such as the LG Watch Sport (OTC:LGEAF). Such watches provide voice calling and cellular data connections and anticipate the future direction of the smartwatch.

    Coherent’s ELA deposition technology for LTPS backplane isn’t used in OLED TVs, where LG (OTC:LGEAF) uses metal oxide backpanes.

    DryShips isn’t the only shipping stock that has skyrocketed this month; the following stocks’ shares are all up between 320 and 720 percent since November 2:

    Diana Containerships Inc (NASDAQ: DCIX). Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA). Globus Maritime Ltd (NASDAQ: GLBS). Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SINO).

    One of the primary reasons for the extreme moves in DryShips and other shipping stocks is a combination of large short positions in the stocks and extremely low share counts. DryShips in particular lowered its share count from around 672 million to only around 1 million via a series of reverse stock-splits throughout the year. The splits were intended to allow the stock to maintain its Nasdaq listing after it had lost more than 98 percent of its value in the first 10 months of 2016.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018

What happened

Genomic Health (NASDAQ:GHDX) closed up 10.2% Tuesday following its announcement of solid fourth-quarter earnings after the bell Monday. The company’s 2017 guidance certainly didn’t hurt investors’ confidence either.

Image source: Getty Images.

So what

Genomic Health delivered 8% more genetic tests in the fourth quarter than it did in Q4 2015. More importantly, product revenue rose even faster — up 10% year over year — as the company was able to get paid for more of its genetic cancer tests from insurers and government programs.

Test sales outside the U.S. were particularly strong, increasing 13% year over year. On a constant-currency basis, the increase would have been an even more impressive 16%.

The rate of growth in the use of Genomic Health’s prostate cancer test is accelerating, with U.S. volume up 29% in Q4 compared to a 16% growth rate for 2016 overall. Unfortunately, the prostate cancer test is still a small revenue contributor for the company since it’s not fully covered by Medicare yet: It added just $3.6 million to the revenue line in the quarter.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018: Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (ICEIF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    In hindsight, June’s news from Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) should come as no surprise. In May the organization announced it was buying Catch Star Studios LLC for the purpose of creating its own sports-related television shows that would be aired by broadcast as well as online. Now it’s begun creating that television content, following in the footsteps of much bigger original-content creators such as Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).

    What might comes as a surprise to existing and potential ICEIF shareholders, however, is how big highly-focused original television programming is now that the lines between the internet and cable television have not only been crossed, but erased.

    May wasn’t just a pivotal month for Intelligent Content Enterprises because it’s when the acquisition of Catch Star Studios was put into motion. May was also the month Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) reported some stunning results of a new study about digital video-viewing habits and preferences. The key findings? Regular viewers of original digital video programming in the U.S. have grown from 45 million in 2013 to 63 million, and the advertisements displayed via a digital broadcast of such programming are liked and remembered by far more viewers than they are when part of a conventional cable television broadcast.

    Said another way as far as advertisers are concerned, the world wide web is the new cable television. That’s not to say cable television has become irrelevant. Savvy content makers are now doing both, while also making a point of creating their own customized content now that the fight for viewers has gotten brutal.

    Take Netflix as an example. It has a pair of smash hits with its self-produced ‘Orange is the New Black’ and ‘House of Cards.’ Amazon.com is getting into the game too, with its ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ recently being awarded two Golden Globes.

    This same paradigm shift h

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    If there was any doubt that the future of video as a digital medium was here to stay, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) just wiped that doubt away. It’s going to open up its video-sharing platform to anyone — not just vetted creators with huge followings — and split ad revenue with them. In so doing, it now offers a similar deal (though a more generous deal) that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and YouTube also offers video creators.

    It’s just a microcosm of the shape of things to come… or the shape of things as they already are. Last year was the first year internet users spent more time watching videos online than they did engaged in social media, averaging more one hour and sixteen minutes of video viewing per day.

    Perhaps more important, the amount of ad revenue the likes of Facebook, and now Twitter, generate via online video is small, but growing very fast. The total ad spend allocated for digital video has jumped from 2.4% in 2013 to 4.4% today, and that’s expected to double again in two years.

    Yet, for as much revenue as online video can drive and as big as it’s gotten, the ad-display technology remains alarmingly inelegant, even or veteran players like YouTube and Facebook. This clunky display of ads — and Twitter will likely keep it clunky, at least initially — increasingly makes a company called Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) not just well-positioned, but a potential acquisition target.

    Intelligent Content Enterprises has developed a tool called Clix Video(tm), which the company described as a way to enable “digital and mobile viewers to instantaneously connect to web and mobile sites by clicking on custom interactive tags within the video broadcasts to make social media connections, to review extra and exclusive content and make online and mobile purchases directly via the video broadcast providing a richer, deeper consumer experience related to the video content. “

    In English, it just means Clix Vide

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    In May of this year, at the annual Collision Conference, advertising and media executives of the world’s biggest traffic-oriented (and ad-supported) websites asked themselves a crucial question: How do we save online advertising from itself?

    The question itself is a reflection of the new reality of the internet…. it’s become so big, so full, so cross-border, so competitive, and so promotional that it’s become an unwieldy mess. Twenty years ago, click-through rates were greater than 40%. Now they’re a mere 0.6%, as consumers (1) are saturated by marketing messages, and (2) have largely learned that ads don’t lead them to a product or service they care about. Digital advertising simply isn’t what it used to be.

    While the answer to the question “how can digital advertising be saved?” is a complex one, a company called Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) addresses at least one aspect of the question, by doing what the web’s capitalists have failed to figure out how to do well. What’s that? ICEIF understands that an ad has to be relevant to a user no matter where that user is, and that to see an ad at all, a user has to be able to read the web’s content in his or her native language.

    Intelligent Content Enterprises, through its Digital Widget Factory website www.digiwidgy.com, has tackled the aforementioned issue head-on, creating a rich website with a built-in translation tool which displays advertisements and offers unique to that reader’s location, and delivers that marketing message in his or her native language.

    It may sound like a lot of work at first glance. But, it’s worth it.

    Digital industry research outfit Common Sense Advisory reports that of the more than 3 billion internet users worldwide, approximately 73% — 2.2 Billion people — are browsing the web in a language other than English. That’s quite a disparity from the fact that more than 50% of the content on the web is na
