    Werner Enterprises (Nasdaq: WERN) competes in the full-truckload (FTL) segment of the industry where drivers deliver entire truck-loads between two points, rather than making many stops to consolidate partial loads as in the LTL segment. This could mean that the company has relatively more to gain from autonomous trucking since highway driving is a larger portion of total drive time.

how to invest money

First Trust Cloud Computing ETF (NASDAQ:SKYY) is the first and only ETF to provide exposure to the fast-growing cloud computing industry. This market segment is growing by leaps and bounds and should do so for several years to come. For example, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Web Services recently announced that its operating income increased from $580 million in the year-ago quarter to $926 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Meanwhile, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced that Azure revenue surged 93% year-over-year.

According to research firm IDC:

Between now and 2020, worldwide spending on public cloud services is expected to soar to more than $195 billion. This is double the revenue the industry is expected to generate by the end of 2016.

The share price of SKYY should be in the clouds, right?

Well, no. Despite the great promise for cloud computing, the ETF has not really performed much better than the S&P 500.

stock market holidays: Paragon Offshore plc (PGNPQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    With even brand new rigs struggling to find work, the jig was soon up for owners of old equipment, like Paragon Offshore (OTCPK:PGNPQ), which is currently undergoing its second debt restructuring in less than three years of independent existence. Likewise, drillers with a fondness for aggressive use of debt were soon in trouble, most notably, former high-flier Seadrill (SDRL) and its little brother North Atlantic Drilling (NADL), which will no doubt file for restructuring within months. As a consequence of the crisis, the OSD industry now has a number of participants without a large debt burden, either new entrants like Borr Drilling, or established competitors that have had debt reduced in a restructuring, such as Ocean Rig (ORIG), to be followed within this year by others, almost certainly including each of SDRL, NADL, and Pacific Drilling (PACD).

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Paragon Offshore’s (OTCPK:PGNPQ) former management’s audacious efforts to omit parts of the senior secured lenders by deeming them unimpaired and instead pay out the majority of the company’s cash to junior unsecured bondholders by presenting a set of entirely unrealistic business forecasts to the court. Fortunately, in case of Paragon Offshore, the bankruptcy judge recognized the framing and accordingly denied confirmation of the company’s plan of reorganization, effectively sending Paragon Offshore back to the drawing board. Consequently, management was ousted after the failure. I have covered the Paragon Offshore saga in a series of articles over the past few quarters, so interested investors might want to take a look at this highly fascinating and still evolving case study.
