Top 5 Heal Care Stocks For 2018: Sony Corp Ord(SNE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Wu]

    AMD supplies APUs (integrated CPU/GPUs) to Sony Corp (NYSE:SNE) and Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT) for their respective gaming consoles. Both companies have released significant console upgrades in the current year, which is strongly bullish for AMD because console sales are typically strongest during the first few years of an upgrade cycle. Even better is the fact that both Microsoft and Sony are planning to shift to smaller but more frequent console upgrades instead of the usual seven-year cycle. This offers some measure of protection for AMD’s console chip business which might not see asevere downturn in the coming years.


    For those who want a general facsimile of the pay-TV bundle and access to the largest broadcast networks, there’s Sling TV from Dish Network (DISH) , DirecTV Now from   AT&T (T) and Sony’s (SNE) PlayStation Vue. In the coming weeks, they’ll be joined by Alphabet’s (GOOGL) YouTube TV and a still unnamed pay-TV service from Hulu, the video-on-demand service controlled jointly by Disney, Comcast’s (CMCSA) NBCUniversal and 21st Century Fox (FOXA) , along with Time Warner (TWX) holding a 10% stake.


    LG, Sony  (SNE) and Huawei respectively have unveiled their G6, Xperia XZ Premium and P10 high-end phones. Of the three new flagships, LG’s offering has arguably drawn the most attention, thanks to its use of a 5.7-inch display with a 2:1 aspect ratio.

    The phrase “over the top television” or “OTT” for short, aren’t exactly new terms. The phrase/abbreviation was coined shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television subscriptions a little less than a decade ago. The over-the-top battle didn’t get heated, though, until the past few months. But, now that some more gladiators are in the arena, sparks are starting to fly.

    They’re still flying too, and should do so for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to do with it it. See, while Netflix, Hulu — jointly owned by Time Warner, Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) — and a whole slew of other new players in this market may want to take notice of this up-and-comer. At the same time, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT business is going to be made over the course of the next several years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. Yes, it was the first on the scene as such was was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market. It’s largely become a commoditized business in the meantime though.

    For example, outside of Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the fray with a service called CBS All Access. The product allows subscribers -for a nominal monthly fee – access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found some measurable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), is another one of the alternatives to the alternative that’s truly made a dent in the over the top market…. by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that p
