Hot Tech Stocks To Invest In 2018

CB Insights

What’s the most well-funded technology startup in your state?

A new map released by CB Insights identifies the most well-funded venture capital-backed technology startup in each state based on disclosed equity funding.

The map includes companies in all 50 states, plus Washington, D.C. Four states – Mississippi, Alaska, North Dakota and South Dakota – did not meet CB Insights’ criteria, so the report includes the most well-funded private technology companies since 2015 in those four states.

Here are some key takeaways:

Most Well-Funded Startup

California-based Uber is the most well-funded startup on the map with $12.5 billion of funding to date

Top “Unicorns”

There are nine “unicorns” (companies valued at $1 billion or more) that are also the most well-funded startup in their respective state: Uber (CA), Datto (CT), Magic Leap (FL), GreenSky (GA), Avant (IL), DraftKings (MA), Infor (NY), Domo (UT), and Vox Media (Washington, D.C.).

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In 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.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Trina Solar Limited(TSL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another potential earnings short-squeeze candidate is integrated solar-power products maker Trina Solar (TSL), which is set to release numbers on next Monday before the market open. Wall Street analysts, on average, expect Trina Solar to report revenue of $645.68 million on earnings of 15 cents per share.

    The current short interest as a percentage of the float for Trina Solar is extremely high at 24.5%. That means that out of the 76.94 million shares in the tradable float, 18.88 million shares are sold short by the bears. If the bulls get the earnings news they’re looking for, then shares of TSL could easily rip sharply higher post-earnings as the bears move to cover some of their positions.

    From a technical perspective, TSL is currently trending below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock recently formed a double bottom chart pattern at $8.67 to $9.04 a share. Shares of TSL have now started to rebound off those support levels and it’s quickly moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade post-earnings above some key near-term overhead resistance levels.

    If you’re bullish on TSL, then I would wait until after its report and look for long-biased trades if this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $10.72 to $11.19 a share and then above its 50-day moving average of $11.17 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that hits near or above its three-month average action of 5.17 million shares. If that breakout materializes post-earnings, then TSL will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 200-day moving average of $12.49 to $14 a share, or even $14.50 to $15 a share.

    I would avoid TSL or look for short-biased trades if after earnings it fails to trigger that breakout and then drops back below some near-term support levels at $10 a share to those double bottom support levels at $9.04 to $8

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.(NCLH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market once again proved its resiliency on Wednesday, bouncing back from extensive declines early in the session to recover most of its losses. The Dow Jones Industrials actually managed to post yet another record close with a modest gain, and although other major market benchmarks suffered declines, they weren’t significant. Moreover, some favorable news from certain pockets of the market helped bolster investor confidence. Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL), Lantheus Holdings (NASDAQ:LNTH), and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NASDAQ:NCLH) were among the top performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCLH) was up nearly 7% on Wednesday afternoon, following its fourth-quarter earnings report.

    Norwegian said that it earned 56 cents a share, a penny ahead of analysts’ expectations. Revenue rose 8.5% to $1.13 billion, also squeaking past the $1.11 billion consensus estimate.

    For the full year, Norwegian said it expects to earn between $3.75 and $3.85 a share, with a midpoint a penny above the $3.79 average analyst estimate. It’s first-quarter EPS guidance of 36 cents also came in ahead of the 34-cent consensus.

    Instinet analyst Harry Curtiswrites that after recent missteps, it was “vital” for Norwegian’s forecast to meet expectations but not seem too optimistic, a balancing act he believes the company achieved.

    He reiterated a Buy rating and $52 price target on the stock:

    NCLHs 2017 EPS outlook ($3.75 to $3.85) brackets our forecast ($3.75) and the Streets ($3.79). However, we believe there could be upside to that range, given the positive booking and pricing trends so far this year. We remain positive on the shares of NCLH, which we believe should continue to outperform through 2017.

    Norwegian was recently up 6.8% to $51.49.

    Axiom Capital Managing Director Gordon Johnson upgraded the entire alternative energy sector from Market Underweight to Market Overweight and upgraded SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ: SCTY) from Sell to Hold and Trina Solar Limited (ADR) (NYSE: TSL), Yingli Green Energy Holding Co Ltd (ADR) (NYSE: YGE) and JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (ADR) (NASDAQ: JASO) from Sell to Buy.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another potential earnings short-squeeze candidate is integrated solar-power products maker Trina Solar (TSL), which is set to release numbers on next Monday before the market open. Wall Street analysts, on average, expect Trina Solar to report revenue of $645.68 million on earnings of 15 cents per share.

    The current short interest as a percentage of the float for Trina Solar is extremely high at 24.5%. That means that out of the 76.94 million shares in the tradable float, 18.88 million shares are sold short by the bears. If the bulls get the earnings news they’re looking for, then shares of TSL could easily rip sharply higher post-earnings as the bears move to cover some of their positions.

    From a technical perspective, TSL is currently trending below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock recently formed a double bottom chart pattern at $8.67 to $9.04 a share. Shares of TSL have now started to rebound off those support levels and it’s quickly moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade post-earnings above some key near-term overhead resistance levels.

    If you’re bullish on TSL, then I would wait until after its report and look for long-biased trades if this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $10.72 to $11.19 a share and then above its 50-day moving average of $11.17 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that hits near or above its three-month average action of 5.17 million shares. If that breakout materializes post-earnings, then TSL will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 200-day moving average of $12.49 to $14 a share, or even $14.50 to $15 a share.

    I would avoid TSL or look for short-biased trades if after earnings it fails to trigger that breakout and then drops back below some near-term support levels at $10 a share to those double bottom support levels at $9.04 to $8

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

Thor Industries (NYSE:THO) posted excellent results for FQ4 to cap off a strong year. Revenues increased 21.7%, beating estimates by a wide margin, and EPS of $1.57 came in ahead of estimates at $1.57. Net income from continuing operations increased 20.1% y/y. I have to admit I was surprised by the results. I expected that a weakening US economy would take its toll on the RV sector. In hindsight, of course, the performance makes sense. Consumers may be spending less on physical goods, but they are spending more on experiences such as travel and vacation, and low gas prices are still a tailwind. THO is up 53% YTD but we think the stock is, at a minimum, fairly valued, and quite possibly undervalued.

The Jayco acquisition, which closed on June 30, was partially responsible for the strong performance: Jayco sales contributed to 18% of the y/y increase in sales and 60% of the increase in consolidated RV backlog, which more than doubled y/y to $1.2 billion. Jayco provides a solid runway of growth going forward, and management expects sales to increase double digits in 2017. But THO also posted strong organic growth. Sales increased 14.4% y/y and Jayco contributed to less than a fifth of the increase. Conditions are close to ideal for the RV industry, and as long as gas prices and interest rates stay low (and we expect they will through 2017), THO should continue to post impressive y/y growth over the coming quarters.
