Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

Seritage Growth Properties (NYSE: SRG) is an attractive investment at today’s price. The company’s assets have enormous redevelopment opportunities embedded in them. Long-term oriented investors can buy at prices not much higher than Warren Buffett bought over a year ago. As time passes and Seritage completes more redevelopment projects, it will further distance itself from its past and the stock price should rise significantly.

In July 2015, Sears Holdings (NASDAQ: SHLD) created Seritage Growth Properties as a way to separate some of its real estate from its struggling retail operations. For many years prior to this separation, the real estate underneath Sears and Kmart was the focal point of most investors’ calculations of intrinsic value for Sears Holdings. I have never met a person on earth who actually thought Sears or Kmart were nice places to shop. It was all about the real estate. Once Seritage was created, the logic behind owning Sears started to fade away. In fact, ever since the creation of Seritage, the stock price of Sears Holdings has declined fairly consistently.

    Tuesday was another down day for the Dow Jones Industrials, which fell more than 100 points to drop further below the 20,000 level. But broader market measures were mixed, and the Nasdaq Composite even managed to gain ground. Continued uncertainty about the impact of new policies from the U.S. federal government have kept markets a bit turbulent, and the beginning of a two-day meeting of the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee could set the tone for monetary policy in 2017. Some stocks had bad news that sent them lower today, and among the worst performers were Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL), Roadrunner Transportation Systems (NYSE:RRTS), and Tempur Sealy International (NYSE:TPX). Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Viva Entertainment Group (OTTV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Everything that Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) was offering via its app as of yesterday just got expanded today. Per this morning’s press release, all the digital content from FlixFling is going to be available on the Viva over-the-top television (and music) streaming platform.

    The product is called Viva Middleware. The software/platform allows anyone to get into the over-the-top television business like Netflix and Hulu already are. Telecom service providers, media websites, universities, and pretty much anyone else can custom-build their own IPTV service, and collect subscription fees and/or ad revenue for doing so. Viva does all the back-end work, while the seller collects the customers.

    The trick is simply filling the pipeline with content, and at the same time, convincing customers that there’s enough quality content at the source to become a paying subscriber. And in this case, the fact that the app works on any operating system or any device is a key selling feature.

    Viva Entertainment Group has already been curating content for a while now, and has a nice library including a huge number of radio stations. That content took a huge leap forward today, however, with FlixFling being added to the mix.

    If it rings a bell for OTTV shareholders, it should. FlixFling is streaming media company started by Thomas Ashley, who just so happened to join the OTTV Board of Directors last week.

    FlixFling is an online video-on-demand content provider specializing in new, previously released and classic movies from most major studios. Customers can watch thousands of movie selections on an easy, flexible interface from your favorite devices or connected TV. FlixFling brings a new and exciting movie content viewing experience to customers who can’t find what they want through other online video rental sites; FlixFling has access to new releases quicker than Hulu or Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).

    It’s a real coup for

    How does the old saying go? The enemy of my enemy is my friend? Not that there was ever any animosity among the players in the arena, but there’s no denying that two heads — two experienced heads — are better than one for any organization that’s trying to beat Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) at its own game. That’s why Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) CEO Johnny Falcones wanted Thomas Ashley, founder of competing over-the-top television venue FlixFling, on the OTTV Board of Directors… he knows exactly what Viva Entertainment Group is trying to do, and he knows a thing or two about how to do it.

    The product is called Viva Middleware, which in simplest terms is a turn-key technology that allows anyone to get into the over-the-top (OTT) business with their own customized over-the-top television service. Live broadcasts, on-demand, music channels and original programming are all possible. This means they can customize the product locally or regionally, or thematically, like an all-sports or an all sci-fi venue. The possibilities are endless, which is in stark contrast to Netflix’s “what you get is what you get” approach.

    The product is technically still in beta mode, though it is ready for “prime time,” so to speak. On December 13th, at the Riviera Hotel in South Beach Miami, OTTV will be hosting a launch party to debut its Viva OTT platform. Not only will the event give guests a chance to see and use the over-the-top television platform, they’ll be dazzled by performances by Soleil J and Jorge Moreno.

    That said, it’s important to note that Viva Entertainment Group already has clients. In August the company announced it was entering a joint venture with Oi2 Media to create an OTT product catering to a specific segment of the nation’s demographic.

    Oi2 Media is the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content, offering both music and television. It’s not just a Netflix-like service Oi2 and Viva will

    Most consumers broadly, vaguely know that so-called over-the-top television services like Hulu and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) are slowly chipping away at traditional cable television service providers. But, the full extent of this paradigm shift may not have been fully appreciated until Paywizard published some jaw-dropping statistics about just how fast the OTT sliver of the television market was growing. Perhaps even more compelling to current and would-be owners of Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) is how possible it was for an unestablished name to break into the over-the-top television market and steal business before Netflix and Hulu even get a chance to win it.

    As suggested, Viva Entertainment Group is an OTT play, but not in the conventional sense. In short, Viva Entertainment Group will allow anyone to get into the subscription-based IPTV game with their own customized version of an over-the-top service if they don’t have the technology necessary to create their own over-the-top service. See, Viva Entertainment Group is the name behind Viva Middleware… a white label app that any third party can utilize as a means of selling OTT, IPTV services to their crowd of users as a means of generating revenue.

    There are multiple advantages to this platform and arrangement, including a custom-built product that can effectively target a particular demographic. Case in point? In August, OTTV entered a joint venture with Oi2 Media to create an OTT product catering to the Latino market. Oi2 Media is the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content, offering both music and television. It’s the name behind CNN en Espanol and ESPN Deportes Radio, just to name a few. It wouldn’t be out of line to call the joint venture something along the lines of a Latino Netflix, but with a variety of channel broadcasts — some live — along with the digital broadcasts of hundreds of Latino radio stations.

    Don’t look for any news to explain the big 73% surge Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) dished out on Monday – you won’t find it, because there wasn’t any. Rather, OTTV shares popped all on their own.

    The knee-jerk reaction may be to presume OTTV stock is destined to roll back just as quickly as the rally materialized. And, that may well be what’s in the cards. Before looking past Viva Entertainment Group as an investment opportunity that’s dead money until further notice though, Monday’s mostly-overlooked action may be a huge bullish clue.

    For the unfamiliar, the company’s product is called Viva Middleware. The software/platform allows anyone to get into the over-the-top television business like Netflix and Hulu already are. Telecom service providers, media websites, universities, and pretty much anyone else can custom-build their own IPTV service, and collect subscription fees and/or ad revenue for doing so. Viva does all the back-end work, while the seller collects the customers.

    The trick is simply filling the pipeline with content, and at the same time, convincing customers that there’s enough quality content at the source to become a paying subscriber. And in this case, the fact that the app works on any operating system or any device is a key selling feature.

    Viva Entertainment Group has already been curating content for a while now, and has a nice library including a huge number of radio stations.

    The stock, though, hasn’t exactly been rewarding even though the company’s back-story has been compelling. That paradigm shift may have changed on Monday.

    Take a look. Out of nowhere, a ton of volume materialized on Monday… most of it bullish. There’s still a ton of ground left to make up, to be sure, but this is interesting. There was far more buying than selling on Monday, on HUGE volume. Why the sudden interest in buying a beaten-down OTTV? That’s the point. For one reason or another, the mood/rheto

    The phrase “over the top television” – or its acronym “OTT” – aren’t necessarily newly-coined ones. The phrase/abbreviation materialized shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television services less than a decade ago. The over-the-top race didn’t really heat up, however, until the past few months. Once it did heat up though, sparks started to fly in earnest.

    They’re still flying too, and will be for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to say about it. Netflix, Hulu [jointly owned by Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA)] and all the rest of the relatively new players in this space may want to look over their shoulder. In the meantime, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT industry is going to be made during the next 10 years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the totally dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. It was admittedly the first on the scene, and therefore was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market (which it still holds to this day). It’s largely become a commoditized business though.

    Case in point? Aside from Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the game with its product called CBS All Access. The service allows subscribers, for a nominal monthly fee, to access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found respectable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), has really broken new ground in the over the top market by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that package at a rate that’s much less than what it would cost a cable subscriber
