Top Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MU) announced a temporary Chinese ban on a patent infringement lawsuit. Microns shares dropped on Tuesday as a result but they have bounced back in Thursdays session after it came to light that this would have a minimal effect on its fourth-quarter revenues.

The patent infringement claims of United Microelectronics (UMC) and Jinhua Integrated Circuit were filed against Micron in retaliation for criminal indictments filed by Taiwan authorities against UMC and three of its employees and a civil lawsuit filed by Micron against UMC and Jinhua in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California for the misappropriation of Micron trade secrets.

The preliminary injunction enjoins Microns Chinese subsidiaries from manufacturing, selling or importing certain Crucial and Ballistix-branded DRAM modules and solid state drives in China. The affected products make up slightly more than 1% of Microns annualized revenues.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

The dividend stocks that investors like most do two things: They pay ample dividends to their shareholders, and they increase the amount that they pay consistently over time. The truly best dividend stocks go a step further, making dividend boosts a habit that investors can bank on year in and year out.

Once dividend stocks get a reputation for excellence, they generally like to keep it. It’s not a sure thing, but that desire to keep up their streaks should give Medtronic (NYSE:MDT), Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT), and General Mills (NYSE:GIS) the incentive they need to reward their shareholders with a higher quarterly payout within the next month.

Banking on medical devices

Medical-device maker Medtronic has a strong reputation among dividend investors, and it has the longest streak of annual payout increases among these three stocks. The company currently yields 2.3%, and it’s made dividend hikes for 40 straight years. Last year’s dividend raise of 7% got paid out to shareholders in late July, with the company having announced the imminent increase on June 23. That pattern extends back for years, with declarations of higher dividends typically coming in mid- to late June.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Keeping in mind that Apple is valued at almost40 times the sizeof Corning, here’s how the two stack up.

    Company Cash Debt Free Cash Flow
    Corning (NYSE:GLW) $3.4 billion $4.8 billion $38 million
    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) $267 billion $101 billion $54 billion

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Back on December 5th of 2013, we added Corning (GLW) to our list around $16 and change. The stock ended up moving to a high of just over $25 per share early last year for roughly a 50% gain. Well, the stock has since come off again trading all the way back down to under $16 per share back in August of last year, before finding its way back up above $18 just yesterday. The context here is two-fold. First, the valuation metrics for GLW are once again suggesting another undervalued opportunity for a Company that is the clear leader in specialty glass and ceramics.

  • [By Matthew Cochrane]

    After enjoying a spectacular 2017, shares of Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) have struggled in the first half of 2018, declining almost 11% year to date. At first glance, this fall is more than understandable: The company has suffered two consecutive quarters of earnings losses and, last quarter, even showed negative free cash flow. However, once investors look under the hood, they can see that some of these concerns might be overblown, and that several catalysts could propel the shares higher in the years to come.

Top 10 China Stocks To Buy For 2018

Friday’s market proved that when something goes right, the market can rally, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers. That’s especially true now that China has indicated there might be a thaw in the chilly trade dispute with the U.S. — allowing U.S. tech stocks to display some leadership.

Cramer says there are many more good opportunities coming in next week’s game plan.

Cramer said he’ll be listening to Tyson Foods (TSN) on Monday, but with rising input costs, the bears are likely to keep winning in the short-term. On a positive note, Service Now (NOW) will be holding an analyst day, which will be sure to ignite the cloud stocks.

Next, on Tuesday, earnings from Walt Disney Co.  (DIS) , Electronic Arts (EA) and Monster Beverage (MNST) . Monster has been disappointing of late, but the same cannot be said for Disney and Electronic Arts, both of which Cramer recommended.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018

Sometimes identifying the best stocks to buy can be difficult, but you could do a lot worse than check out the stocks selected by one of the world’s wealthiest hedge fund managers — George Soros.

Self-made Soros fled Hungary and funded his way through an economics degree by working as a railway porter and waiter. Years of successful investing gave him a net worth of $25.2 billion and the no. 1 ranking on Forbes’ hedge fund manager rich list. (Warren Buffett, who has a whopping $75 billion net worth, wins the no.1 title for the wider finance and investments community). In 1992, Soros shorted the British pound and reportedly made a profit of $1 billion. He became known as the man who broke the Bank of England.

Now we can track the latest trades of his family office, Soros Fund Management. Just-released SEC forms reveal a valuable glimpse into which stocks Soros likes, and which he doesn’t. I looked back over 2017 and pinpointed Soros’ best stock picks this year. These are the stocks that this legendary hedge fund manager is most bullish on. Note that Soros has just shifted an incredible $18 billion from the fund to charity. Following the move, the fund manages about $4 billion in portfolio assets.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: NO Name(ACI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Robert Weinstein]

    Lawsuit after lawsuit, a billion dollars in cost overruns, taxpayer subsidies and the most expensive coal plant to operate causing electric rates to skyrocket, if this becomes the norm. The new project is called Plant Ratcliffe by Southern Co.
    Plant Ratcliffe is quite the boondoggle, but proponents say it always costs more to build the first one and costs will come down as the technology improves. More plants are in the planning stages and may bring a needed shot in the arm to mining stocks.
    Alpha Natural Resources (ANR), Walter Energy (WLT), Arch Coal (ACI), Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), Peabody Energy (BTU), and James River Coal (JRCC) are companies that may benefit from increased demand for coal.
    Not all coal or coal companies are equal, so it’s crucial to discriminate based on your investment time-horizon goals. With that said, the announcement should have been followed by a deep sell-off in coal and utility related stocks. But something happened.
    Or, rather, didn’t happen.
    The above coal stocks didn’t sell off tremendously and are largely moving along with the rest of the market today. This is noteworthy because stocks don’t bottom on good news, they reach a bottom on awful news. Let me explain: When a stock chart continues trending lower, what you’re witnessing is investors throwing in the towel and moving on.
    Leaving aside bankruptcies for a moment, almost all stocks have a core group of investors that are commonly known as the “strong hands.” A stock is at the bottom when the weak hands are gone. At some point, distressing news (like an unfavorable EPA announcement regarding coal) hits the wire and the related stock or stocks react with little or no movement. This is what we are witnessing right now in coal-related companies.
