Hot High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) is in a spot of bother as weak demand for its mobile chips led to a slight decline in its revenue during the fiscal third quarter. But that didn’t keep it from raising its dividend. Skyworks management decided to boost the quarterly dividend by 19% to $0.38 per share. This is surprising, as the company’s outlook doesn’t inspire much confidence.

Skyworks expects its fourth-quarter revenue to rise just 1.6% annually at the midpoint of its guidance range, while adjusted earnings per share are expected to rise just 5%. This is in stark contrast to the same period last year, when the company’s revenue increased 18% and adjusted earnings shot up 22%.

It looks like Skyworks is trying to prop up investor confidence by increasing its dividend and deflecting attention from the challenges that it faces in the mobile business, which supplies 70% of its total revenue. But is this the right way to go at a time when the company’s primary business is struggling?

Hot High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019: MBIA, Inc.(MBI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finished lower on Friday, with triple-digit losses for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and modest declines of as much as half a percent for other major benchmarks. A mix of economic and political news kept investors on their toes to end the week, as fears of a possible attack on Syria watered down some of the potential upside that could have stemmed from solid earnings results from the banking sector during the morning. Even though many investors have pretty positive expectations going into earnings season, some companies suffered from disappointing news that sent their shares lower. Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and MBIA (NYSE:MBI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    MBIA Inc. (NYSE:MBI) saw unusually large options trading on Tuesday. Stock investors purchased 13,349 call options on the company. This represents an increase of 1,714% compared to the average daily volume of 736 call options.
