ten best stocks

Apple’s newest foray into social media isn’t its own network — it’s an app that creates slickly designed videos.

Clips, Apple’s (AAPL, Tech30) new standalone app announced Tuesday, creates videos to share to networks like Facebook (FB, Tech30) and Instagram. The app, which will be available for free in the App Store in April, lets users create what Apple calls “immersive” video.

Clips users can string together video clips, photos and music — and add a bit of flash with features like filters, emoji, speech bubbles, animated titles and narration. The square-shaped Clips videos can be shared directly to social networks like Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, or saved to a user’s phone. (While Apple isn’t always known for playing nicely with other tech companies’ systems, the Cupertino company hasn’t had much success with its own social network experiments like Ping and Apple Music Connect.)

I tested Clips during a brief demo in New York this week and found the app is a lot like Snapchat’s (SNAP) Stories feature — but with Apple’s polish.

    Xerox Corp. (NYSE: XRX) dropped about 23% on Tuesday to post a new 52-week low of $6.46 after closing at $8.73 on Friday.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2018

Small SUVs are the hottest segment in the new car market right now. So maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that a big chunk of the new vehicle unveilings at the Los Angeles Auto Show were little crossover SUVs.

It seemed like there was an SUV popping out every time you turned around. For starters, Ford unveiled its new EcoSport just before the show with DJ Khaled doing the honors.

The Jeep Compass is another example of the car market’s madness for small-sized SUVs. The current version is a strong seller despite abysmal reviews. Consumer Reports gave it the lowest rating of any compact SUV and Car & Driver awarded it a mere 1.5 out of a possible five stars.

And yet, as of last month, Jeep Compass sales for the year were up 44%. According to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAM), which makes Jeeps, the sales jump reflects the Compass’s relatively low price given all the desirable SUV features that it offers.

DJ Khaled unveils new Ford EcoSport on Snapchat

It’s too soon to know, of course, how good the new Compass is but it should at least be a vast improvement over the outgoing model. Since it’s a Jeep, engineers took off-road capability seriously in creating the new Compass. Two different full-time all-wheel-drive systems are available including a super-slow off-road “crawl” gearing ratio. “Trail Rated” versions can wade through 19 inches of water and climb over steep hills and out of tight ditches. At the same time, Jeep also promises better on-road behavior.

investing in shares

Investors have to be scratching their heads in 2017. After perhaps the most brutal election cycle of modern days, investors keep seeing the U.S. stock market challenge all-time highs almost every single day. The notion that this bull market is a few days shy of 8 years old just doesn’t matter. Investors keep wanting to buy pullbacks, and they are looking for ideas.

24/7 Wall St. has tracked many mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for years. The grand-daddy of all indexes is the S&P 500 Index with a combined market cap of a whopping $21.3 trillion. This index dwarfs the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s $5.97 trillion market cap.

Many investors simply do not want to take any non-market risk in specific stocks or even in specific sectors. That leads them into the S&P 500 mutual funds or ETFs. The question that many investors will ask — which S&P 500 Index fund is the best?

When it comes to be the best, let’s say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The three major funds/ETFs that track the S&P 500 all have incredibly low fees that are less than 0.1%. That is dirt cheap, and most index-trackers will tell you that fee minimization will influence your returns more than anything else over time.

investing in shares: Ambarella, Inc.(AMBA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Ambarella Inc (NASDAQ: AMBA) shares dropped 11 percent to $55. Ambarella posted stronger-than-expected results for its third quarter, but issued a weak revenue forecast for the current quarter.

  • [By Kumar Abhishek]

    Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) stock is currently testing its 50-day simple moving average support line. As can be seen in Ambarella’s Technical analysis charts, AMBA stock was in a strong downtrend, forming lowerlows and lower highs over the past six months. However, the trend changed after the stock formed a doublebottom pattern. Double bottom is a trend reversal pattern which indicates that the stock is likelyto go up. After forming the double bottom pattern, the stock rallied, gaining around 10%. However, the rally was brought to a halt after the 100-day and 200-day simple moving averages formed a death cross. A death cross occurs when a shorter period moving average cuts a longer period moving average from the top. It is a strong bearish signal. The death cross was accompanied by abearish crossover between MACD and signal line. Ambarella stock has been in a decline ever since.

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Ambarella, Inc. (AMBA) has been all over the map over the last few years. It has defied gravity both to the up and to the downside, and although today’s suggested short of the stock is strictly technical, we do believe its current share price has once again gotten a little out of line when you compare it to the rest of the markets’ valuation metrics right now.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Looking at recent historical deals, we arrive at a $18-$23 potential deal range.

These deals include Southern Tide (acquired by Oxford Industries (OXM)), Joe’s Jeans (acquired by Sequential Brands Group (SQBG)), prAna (acquired by Columbia Sportswear (COLM)), The Jones Group (acquired by Sycamore Partners [private] and Juicy Couture (acquired by Authentic Brands Group [private]). The average EV/EBITDA multiple of these transactions are 12.9x (in line with KATE’s 5-year historical average of 12.1x) and implies a potential deal range of $22-$23. When taking the average of recent (F13-16) deals implies an ~10.5x EV/EBITDA multiple. When applying the ~10.5x multiples to KATE’s trailing EBITDA, we arrive at an $18- $19 potential share price.

    Oxford Industries Inc (NYSE: OXM) was down, falling around 11 percent to $64.05. Oxford Industries reported a narrower-than-expected loss for its third quarter. The company projects full-year earnings of $3.50 to $3.65 per share, and revenue of $1.02 billion to $1.03 billion.

Yesterday's big drop in gold stocks gives traders a terrific chance to buy today.   Last Friday, I said to get ready for a "buy" signal in the gold sector. And now we have it.   Let me explain…   The Gold Miners Bullish Percent Index (or "BPGDM") turned higher from oversold conditions on Monday. And that's a green light for buying gold stocks. Here's the latest chart…  
  BPGDM measures the percentage of gold stocks that are trading in a bullish formation. It's a measure of overbought and oversold conditions for the sector. Readings above 80 – like we saw in July – indicate overbought conditions. Readings below 20 indicate oversold conditions in the gold sector.

As I began my home lighting preparations for another Christmas and New Year’s friendly neighborhood lighting competition, I was struck by how much has changed this year. For the first time in nearly 20 years of decorating my house for the holidays, my entire front yard masterpiece now consisted exclusively of beautifully bright LED strands. In the spirit of Peter Lynch’s “One Up on Wall Street,” I decided to extend my anecdotal survey a bit broader. I had to know if I was the only one who had reached full LED saturation for the holidays. I surveyed the aisles at several Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) and Home Depots (NYSE:HD), questioned a few neighbors, and quickly found that I was no anomaly.

LED has gone mainstream. Maybe I was a little slow to notice, but the adoption rates are accelerating all around us for a host of reasons. Electricity cost savings, less time on ladders, no glass breakage, and cool surfaces to the touch all add to the growing appeal. Like most things I observe, I had to know how this related to the stock sector of LED specific firms. Rather than include industrial behemoths like General Electric (NYSE:GE), I decided the purer LED play may provide better market insights for us to consider.

    Thus we are still extremely cautious in gold as we are a bit worried about next week’s job report being positive and knocking gold down, but we maintain our core positions in gold. But we aren’t looking to re-establish any of our sold gold and silver positions just yet until we see more of a pullback in the metals or a bad jobs report and thus we think investors should hold off or lighten up on gold positions in the ETF’s and miners such as the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:GLD), ETFS Physical Swiss Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:SGOL), iShares Silver Trust (NYSEARCA:SLV), and miners such as Randgold (GOLD) and Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX).

stock market websites: Viva Entertainment Group (OTTV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    Calling a spade a spade, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is the dominant name in the over-the-top television space right now, though Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH) deserves a mention. For that matter, the relatively new Vue service from Sony Corp (NYSE:SNE) has the potential to cause problems for both DISH and Netflix, as Vue offers several different bundles, all of which include some major network broadcasts (a big piece of the pie Netflix is missing).

    And yet, for as popular as those OTT choices are, they’re not necessarily great investments right now, as each alternative to traditional cable television is on the verge of a major disruption now that a new technology has been unveiled by creator Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV). In short, Viva Entertainment Group will allow anyone to get into the subscription-based IPTV game with their own customized version of an over-the-top service, and even within that platform the subscriber has more choice than Sony Vue, Sling TV, or Netflix can provide.

    The reality check was delivered this morning on the heels of a press release/shareholder update. Some of what Viva Entertainment Group was already known. Some of what was said, though, was new, and compelling.

    For the unfamiliar, Viva Entertainment Group is the name behind Viva Middleware… a white label app that any third party can utilize as a means of selling OTT, IPTV services to their crowd of users as a means of generating revenue.

    There are multiple advantages to this platform and arrangement, including a custom-built product that can effectively target a particular demographic. Case in point? Last week, OTTV entered a joint venture with Oi2 Media to create an OTT product catering to the Latino market.

    If one wants to know why cord-cutting is a full-blown movement, one only has to look at Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV). And, in light of today’s news, the movement is only going to accelerate as we move deeper into 2017. Fans of small cap stocks and technological paradigm shifts may want to put OTTV on their radar, if not in their portfolio.

    The product is called Viva Middleware, which in simplest terms is a turn-key technology that allows anyone to get into the OTT (over the top television) business with their own customized over-the-top television service. Live broadcasts, on-demand, music channels and original programming are all possible. This means they can customize the product locally or regionally, or thematically, like an all-sports or an all sci-fi venue. Indeed, the company has already announced a joint venture with Oi2 Media – the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content – to create an OTT product catering to a specific segment of the nation’s demographic. The possibilities are endless though… including such a service from Viva Entertainment Group itself.

    That is, in fact, what’s been happening. Over the course of the past several months the company has been in discussions with several digital video content providers and venues, adding their content to Viva’s platform. Last month it added FlixFling content to its already-extensive library. Today, it announced it would be piping in content from TikiLIVE, which offers online access to an impressive array of television programs that many consumers presumed were only available with a cable subscription.

    Viva Entertainment Group CEO Johnny Falcones explained:

    Everything that Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) was offering via its app as of yesterday just got expanded today. Per this morning’s press release, all the digital content from FlixFling is going to be available on the Viva over-the-top television (and music) streaming platform.

    The product is called Viva Middleware. The software/platform allows anyone to get into the over-the-top television business like Netflix and Hulu already are. Telecom service providers, media websites, universities, and pretty much anyone else can custom-build their own IPTV service, and collect subscription fees and/or ad revenue for doing so. Viva does all the back-end work, while the seller collects the customers.

    The trick is simply filling the pipeline with content, and at the same time, convincing customers that there’s enough quality content at the source to become a paying subscriber. And in this case, the fact that the app works on any operating system or any device is a key selling feature.

    Viva Entertainment Group has already been curating content for a while now, and has a nice library including a huge number of radio stations. That content took a huge leap forward today, however, with FlixFling being added to the mix.

    If it rings a bell for OTTV shareholders, it should. FlixFling is streaming media company started by Thomas Ashley, who just so happened to join the OTTV Board of Directors last week.

    FlixFling is an online video-on-demand content provider specializing in new, previously released and classic movies from most major studios. Customers can watch thousands of movie selections on an easy, flexible interface from your favorite devices or connected TV. FlixFling brings a new and exciting movie content viewing experience to customers who can’t find what they want through other online video rental sites; FlixFling has access to new releases quicker than Hulu or Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).

    Most consumers broadly, vaguely know that so-called over-the-top television services like Hulu and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) are slowly chipping away at traditional cable television service providers. But, the full extent of this paradigm shift may not have been fully appreciated until Paywizard published some jaw-dropping statistics about just how fast the OTT sliver of the television market was growing. Perhaps even more compelling to current and would-be owners of Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) is how possible it was for an unestablished name to break into the over-the-top television market and steal business before Netflix and Hulu even get a chance to win it.

    As suggested, Viva Entertainment Group is an OTT play, but not in the conventional sense. In short, Viva Entertainment Group will allow anyone to get into the subscription-based IPTV game with their own customized version of an over-the-top service if they don’t have the technology necessary to create their own over-the-top service. See, Viva Entertainment Group is the name behind Viva Middleware… a white label app that any third party can utilize as a means of selling OTT, IPTV services to their crowd of users as a means of generating revenue.

    There are multiple advantages to this platform and arrangement, including a custom-built product that can effectively target a particular demographic. Case in point? In August, OTTV entered a joint venture with Oi2 Media to create an OTT product catering to the Latino market. Oi2 Media is the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content, offering both music and television. It’s the name behind CNN en Espanol and ESPN Deportes Radio, just to name a few. It wouldn’t be out of line to call the joint venture something along the lines of a Latino Netflix, but with a variety of channel broadcasts — some live — along with the digital broadcasts of hundreds of Latino radio stations.

    NEW YORK — Walgreen is moving 120,000 employees to a private health insurance exchange from coverage provided directly from carriers, the company will announce Wednesday.
    The pharmacy chain will join 17 other large employers on the Aon Hewitt Corporate Health Exchange as part of a growing movement to offer employees fixed dollar amounts to purchase their own plans on such exchanges.
    The end-cost to employees depends on the plan chosen, but they typically get more options than under traditional arrangements. Private exchanges mimic the coverage mandated as part of the Affordable Care Act. Enrollment in the public exchanges starts Oct. 1.
    “What happens to employer contributions over time? Will they put in as much as they put in the past? These are unanswered questions but potential negatives,” says Paul Fronstin, a senior research associate with the Employee Benefit Research Institute. The benefit to Walgreen and other employers is unknown at this point, as their cost-savings aren’t clear.
    Of the 180,000 Walgreen (WAG) employees eligible for health care insurance, 120,000 opted for coverage for themselves and 40,000 family members. Another 60,000 employees, many of them working part-time, weren’t eligible for health insurance.
    Aon Hewitt (AON) says other participants in its program include retailer Sears Holding (SHLD) and Darden Restaurants (DRI). These new additions raise enrollment to 330,000 from 100,000 last year, and Aon Hewitt estimates enrollment will jump to 600,000 next year, a fivefold increase from 2012.
    By 2017, nearly 20 percent of employees nationwide could get their health insurance through a private exchange, according to Accenture Research (ACN). A recent report by the National Business Group on Health said that 30 percent of large employers are considering moving active employees to exchanges by 2015.

    Other major providers of private exchanges include Mercer, a division of Marsh & Mc

    Shares of Tesla (TSLA) gained nearly 3% after reports that the upstart automaker had halted production at one of its factories to prepare for Model 3 production. But production isn’t set to begin until July, so we’ll have to get through earnings on Feb. 22 first. Baird’sBen Kallo and team are buyers:

    We are buyers ahead of Q4 results. We expect updates on the Model 3 and Gigafactory production ramps on the call, which we believe will drive shares higher. We now model ~25k Model 3 deliveries in 2017 with more confidence TSLA can ramp production, although we do not expect specific Model 3 guidance. We expect less focus on the SCTY acquisition, although there may be short-term noise as expectations are calibrated. We believe the Q4 report is another de-risking event, and recommend investors own shares.

    Shares of Tesla have gained 2.7% to$269.20 today.

    Many people have become frightened by AI’s range of possibilities — and not just because tech’s frightful five (Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL) , Facebook Inc. (FB) , Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) , Microsoft Inc. (MSFT) and Apple Inc. (AAPL) ) became early adopters of AI. Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk, who dabbles in other, equally scary technology like self-driving cars has been one of AI’s staunchest critics, calling it an existential threat to the human race.
