Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

It may not be seen as a leader in renewable energy, but Colorado has quietly become one of the most ambitious states in the Lower 48 when it comes to modernizing its electric grid. It was the first state to adopt a Renewable Energy Standard for its electricity consumption by referendum. It also has the second-strictest 2020 targets of any state, mandating that investor-owned utilities generate 30% of their power from renewable sources — and that 3% of that must come from distributed generation, such as rooftop solar.

Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL), which owns one of two investor-owned utilities in the state, has already exceeded the 30% target. But it knows even more ambitious standards are coming in the not-too-distant future. That’s why it’s proposed an ambitious new power plan to the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) that would allow the company to generate 55% of its power in the state from renewables by 2026. It would also double the company’s current total solar capacity.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

B&G Foods (BGS) is the maker of well-known brands such as Green Giant, Cream of Wheat, and Pirates Booty Popcorn. The stock is way undervalued and sports a 6.8% dividend yield and trades at a little over one times sales. When the market figures this out, the stock ought to run.

There are 66.59 million shares, the stock trades for $27.80, and the market cap is $1.851 billion.

The dividend is $1.90, and the dividend yield is a whopping 6.8%. Yahoo lists its earnings at $3.26 and its PE at 8.5. Thats a cheap stock.

Sales grew from $725 million in 2013 to $1.668 billion last year. Pretty decent growth, but much of it comes through M&A. Adjusted EBITDA grew from $184 million to $333.2 million over that time frame. That would put the EBITDA margin at 20%.

Hot Casino Stocks To Invest In 2018

In an agewhen vending machines can dispense anything from lipstick to headphones, perhaps it was only a matter of time before the industry would dream up a new, automated way to help people stock up on marijuana.

American Green, a Phoenix-based medical-cannabis technology company, has unveiled a prototype for a vending machine that uses biometric verification technology to sell controlled and age-restricted items. Besides dope, it can dispense other items where positive identification is a purchasing prerequisite — pharmaceuticals, casino chips, alcoholic beverages or evenguns.

The device would be ideal for casinos that want to go cashless, drug stores looking to sell prescription-only or other controlled items like antihistiminesand pot dispensaries that have customers who would rather avoid a face-to-face transaction, according to American Green’s Chief Operating Officer Stephen Shearin.

Hot Casino Stocks To Invest In 2018: Cubic Corporation(CUB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.GURUFOCUS.COM]

    In actuality, we think the reverse is true for several reasons. We believe that there is a higher level of investor neglect in the small cap space, and neglect, in an investment sense, creates valuation discounts from fair value. Small cap names are less well-known and understood. For example, most of you have never heard of Cubic Corporation (NYSE:CUB), but you have likely used the public transportation systems in New York, London, Sydney, etc. that rely on Cubic for fare collection services. Likewise, Multi-Color is a confusing name for the second largest label maker in the world. To understand these businesses, investors need to dig a little deeper with active fundamental research – a Third Avenue strength.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) shares were also up, gaining 15 percent to $61.45. Cubic reported Q4 net income of $13.2 million, after posting a loss in the year-ago period. Cubic also disclosed that it has been selected for contract from Boston MBTA to deliver next-generation fare payment system.

    SoftBank also purchased telecom upstart Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) in 2013. And it is considering deals with other communications giants, including Charter Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: CHTR) and T-Mobile U.S. Inc. (Nasdaq: TMUS)

  • [By Andrew Tonner]

    As one of the group of companies associated with telecom magnate John Malone — who regularly uses complex, tax-efficient corporate transactions to unlock value for shareholders — Liberty Broadband serves as a holding company that controls a diverse set of media assets. The most important of these is Liberty Broadband’s ownership of 25% of Charter Communications’ (NASDAQ:CHTR) total voting power, which effectively makes Liberty Broadband a tracking stock for Charter Communications shares.As such, Liberty Broadband shares have largely mirrored the impressive rally in Charter Communications stock over the past year. Particularly given Charter’s upcoming launch of its own wireless service network, Soros’ investment in Liberty Broadband remains an interesting option as the cable and telecom industries continue to evolve.

    It was just a little more than a year ago when Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) was the largest U.S. pay-TV provider. And it wasn’t even close. But after AT&T (NYSE:T) merged with DirecTV, it took over the top spot. Now, AT&T’s rival telecom company, Verizon (NYSE:VZ), is reportedly considering a megamerger of its own with Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR). The move would put the combined company’s total video subscriber count very close to Comcast’s.

    The potential merger points to a big hole in Comcast’s service offerings — its lack of wireless service. If customers can save money by bundling their TV, internet, and wireless bills together with its competitors, Comcast stands to lose customers. But Comcast’s management and investors shouldn’t lose sleep over the possibility that its two biggest competitors offer wireless service.

    It has been widely reported that T-Mobile US Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) had been in merger talks with Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S), a competitor that is majority owned by Softbank. However, these talks are now on hold as Sprint is negotiating potential deals with two of the largest cable companies in the United States; Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) and Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR). These cable companies are under pressure having lost subscribers due to services like Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), which recently blew away its second quarter growth estimates.
