Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

After meeting with Gilead Sciences’ (GILD) President and incoming CEO John Milligan, UBS analyst Matthew Roden and team see a “re-energized” Gilead. They explain:

Earlier this week, we had the opportunity to host John Milligan, President and incoming CEO of Gilead, for a group dinner and other investor meetings. Topics of discussion were wide-ranging, and included corporate development, commercial, and pipeline… [We] walked away from the meetings seeing a re-energized Gilead that acknowledges investor concerns and wants to tackle challenges head-on.

The most important takeaways, in our view: *HCV can grow in 2016, contrary to current expectations; *China is a big opportunity for SOF/VEL (2017e launch); *Mgmt confident in the HIV outlook; *M&A urgency / aggressiveness has increased, but will return 75% of FCF to shareholders unless deals warrants flexibility; *Strategy on inflammation goes beyond filgotinib.

Shares of Gilead Sciences have dropped 1.4% to $86.61 at 11:08 a.m. today, while the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) has tumbled 3.5% to $241.13.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Corning Incorporated(GLW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Back on December 5th of 2013, we added Corning (GLW) to our list around $16 and change. The stock ended up moving to a high of just over $25 per share early last year for roughly a 50% gain. Well, the stock has since come off again trading all the way back down to under $16 per share back in August of last year, before finding its way back up above $18 just yesterday. The context here is two-fold. First, the valuation metrics for GLW are once again suggesting another undervalued opportunity for a Company that is the clear leader in specialty glass and ceramics.

    We believe 4K TV demand is ramping strongly, and management execution has been solid in our opinion. We also note the company’s focus on increased shareholder returns. Overall, we see the stock as undervalued on an ex-cash P/E basis despite growing EPS faster than peers. 

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    GLW’s debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.20 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 3.30, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.

    While some of these stocks have performed well, we arent recommending this list of natural gas stocks. Thats because we arent interested in stocks that have already peaked at Money Morning; were interested in the next big winner. And we have one that could surge in 2017

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Liquidity Services Inc.(LQDT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Liquidity Services Inc. (NASDAQ: LQDT) was raised to Buy from Underperform, and the price target was raised up to $45 from $28.50, at Merrill Lynch.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Liquidity Service (LQDT) is an online auction marketplace for surplus and salvage assets. This stock closed up 14.9% at $34.44 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 1.60 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 402,622

    Volume % Change: 336%

    From a technical perspective, LQDT skyrocketed higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $30.94 with strong upside volume. This move briefly saw shares of LQDT trend back above its 200-day moving average at $34.60, before it closed just below that level at $34.44. Shares of LQDT are now quickly moving within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if LQDT manages to take out Monday’s intraday high of $35.21 and then once it clears some more near-term overhead resistance at $35.71 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LQDT as long as it’s trending above $32.67 or above $31.60 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 402,622 shares. If we get that breakout soon, then LQDT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $38 to $40.90.
