    With that in mind, we asked three Motley Fool contributing investors to identify a company that’s on track to continue operating at the high levels needed to deliver strong returns. Read on to see why they think Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), Proto Labs (NYSE:PRLB), and Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) are top growth stocks to buy this April. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Shares of Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) hit all-time highs two weeks ago, but a swift correction finds the dot-com darling kicking off this new trading week 17% below those peak levels. The sell-off is creating a tempting buying opportunity for investors that have missed out on one of last year’s hottest stocks, but it’s always difficult to time an entry point in a stock that’s correcting.

    Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) reported fantastic numbers — for a growing business, at least — and the market doesn’t seem to care. A Bank of America Merrill Lynch survey found that professional investors bulked up their cash positions in a big way. Under Armour (NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA) reported strong international sales, but the U.S. picture remains weak. Ellie Mae (NYSE:ELLI) just may be going private in an all-cash buyout.

Warren Buffett rarely likes technology stocks.

His rationale? Stick with what you know. Buffett readily admits that he does not understand technology so he has avoided investments in the technology sector.

Over the years, there have been exceptions to this rule – including Buffett’s investments in IBM and Microsoft, among others.

Perhaps chief among these exceptions is Buffett’s investment in Apple. Over the past year, Buffett, through his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, has amassed more than 61 million shares in Apple, making Berkshire a top 10 Apple shareholder with its 1% stake.

    Starbuck’s Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX) Executive Chair Howard Schultz announced he will depart the company. Many are speculating he will pursue a career in politics and potentially seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.

In and of itself, this is not enough impetus to get long. However, when combined with the fundamental picture, a compelling long thesis emerges.

Hot Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

Russia isn’t just trying to sell its new airliner abroad. It might build it there, too.

State-owned military-industrial giant Rostec, which is responsible for exporting Russian technology, said Sunday that it has started talks to jointly produce a commercial plane overseas — potentially in the United Arab Emirates.

The short statement, which coincided with the start of the Dubai air show, didn’t provide much detail. But Russia is trying to increase exports of its new large single-aisle airliner, the Irkut MC-21, which competes directly with Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSF) planes.

One strategy that plane makers employ to boost sales is using overseas manufacturing to gain market access with local airlines. Europe’s Airbus, for example, opened final assembly lines for its A320 jets in China and the U.S. to produce planes specifically to attract airlines in both countries.

The UAE is home to two of the world’s biggest carriers, Emirates and Etihad, as well as several smaller ones.

Hot Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019: ManpowerGroup(MAN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Shopify Inc.(SHOP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    The new trading week is kicking off with a pair of knocks on dot-com darling Shopify (NYSE:SHOP). Shares of the e-commerce platform provider took a 2% hit on Monday — bucking the general market’s rise — after noted worrywart Citron Research took another shot at Shopify. The stock continued to drift lower in after-hours trading following Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) announcing the acquisition of Shopify rival Magento. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    It’s been six weeks since shares of Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) hit all-time highs, just ahead of posting what would be disappointing second-quarter results. The e-commerce platform provider has now surrendered 17% of its value since peaking in late July, and it’s easy to wonder if the monster growth stock that has still more than tripled since the start of last year will become a market darling again.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Ashton Kutcher, Sound Ventures (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images )

Eight months after launching in New York and 6 weeks after launching Illinois, Lemonade, the insurance company powered by AI and behavioral economics, launched across California.

It’s pretty fitting for the insurance disruptor to count California, the tech capital of the world, as its third state to be licensed in. Backed by VCs such as Sequoia, GV, General Catalyst and Ashton Kutcher’s Sound Ventures, Lemonade was founded by two techies themselves: Daniel Schreiber, the former president of Powermat, and Shai Wininger, a co-founder of Fiverr. In fact, the two describe Lemonade as a “tech company doing insurance, not an insurance company doing an app.”

This is not a trivial distinction. Insuretech has been billed the hottest sector in tech, and swarms of startups have sprung up in this past year. From 2011 and until 2017, overall insuretech venture funding grew by 31% annually, according to Venture Scanner. Often, “insurtech” companies are digital brokers that provide a snazzy facade for traditional insurance incumbents.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019: Shopify Inc.(SHOP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Crumly]

    As for individual stocks, Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) fell on a top-line miss and shares of Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) dropped despite the company reporting a strong quarter.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    A third behind-the-scenes company that has a chance to be even more involved than Brink’s or Cree is cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider Shopify (NYSE:SHOP).

  • [By Danny Vena]

    Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) had a lot to live up to going into its second-quarter financial report. The e-commerce platform provider’s stock had already gained 46% so far this year, nearly 10 times the gain of the S&P 500. In the first quarter, year-over-year revenue growth fell below the 70% mark for the first time since the company went public in mid-2015. But while Shopify continued its impressive track record of growth, it came at a slower rate than previous quarters and left some investors disappointed. 

  • [By Danny Vena, George Budwell, and Daniel Miller]

    With that in mind, we asked three Motley Fool contributors to identify growth stocks with intriguing potential that might not be on the radar of most investors. They picked Shopify Inc. (NYSE:SHOP), Atara Biotherapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATRA), and Criteo S.A. (NASDAQ:CRTO).

  • [By Danny Vena]

    2018 was a wild ride for Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) investors. The stock had been up as much as 72% before settling for a 37% gain to close out the year, blasting past the 6% decline for the S&P 500. Fears concerning the company’s slowing growth and the correction late last year slowed the stocks relentless advance. Still, the company has a vast opportunity ahead as the trend toward e-commerce continues to build, and Shopify provides the platform that makes setting up an online presence easy.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    I believe this data also demonstrates the scope of opportunity awaiting Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) and its e-commerce platform. A number of large growers and provinces, including Ontario, have chosen to utilize Shopify’s sales platform for online and brick-and-mortar sales. Aside from simply being the sales platform of choice, Shopify offers marijuana companies purchasing data on consumers for pretty much the first time ever. With this being a cash-dominated industry, it’s been virtually impossible for growers and retailers to understand their customer base. With Shopify, this is going to change, and both producers and retailers will be able to more directly target consumers.

    Move over IPG Photonics (NASDAQ:IPGP). There’s a new laser maker in town — and Wall Street loves it.

    It’s been nearly a month now since tiny laser maker nLIGHT(NASDAQ:LASR) debuted on the Nasdaq.
