Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

When it comes to streaming, there’s Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), then there’s everyone else. Sure, there’s been competition from the likes of Amazon.com’s Prime Video and Hulu, but the combination of Netflix’s cutting-edge streaming technology and an early move into original content has kept any would-be competitors at arms-length.

However, recent developments may finally bring some long-awaited competition to the space, and one announcement sent Netflix shares skidding over 6% in response. An analyst’s rosy outlook for an anticipated streaming video service from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) caused the swoon.

An Apple a day…

Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said that if Apple debuts a video streaming subscription — which has been widely anticipated — the company could attract over 50 million paid subscribers by 2025. Netflix currently has 130 million subscribers, with 124 million of those paying (the rest are on 30-day free trials). Huberty believes that consumers would pay about $7.99 per month for the service, even for a much smaller, high quality content library, growing to a $4.4 billion business over the coming six years.

    You might have a vague notion that Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) supplies wireless chips for smartphones. After all, if you’ve looked at a component teardown report of a high-profile smartphone like one of the latest Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhones, you’ve probably seen at least a few Skyworks chips.

    Demand for the iPhone X is weaker than expected, driving shares of Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) down about 3% from recent highs.

    Merger mania has been hitting Wall Street all month. Today, 21st Century Fox Inc.

    Four Stocks to Watch Today: BBY, DB, KR, APRN
    Best Buy Corp. (NYSE: BBY) leads a busy day of earnings reports in New York. The Big Box retailer easily topped Wall Street expectations, with earnings per share of $0.82 on $9.11 billion in revenue. The average analyst expectation came in at $0.75 on $8.78 billion.
    The largest bank in Europe is facing problems again. This morning, Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) announced plans to slash 7,000 jobs as the firm attempts to restore profitability to its balance sheet. The announcement comes as the company’s chair faces a vote of no confidence at an annual general meeting taking place today.
    In other deal news, Kroger Inc. (NYSE: KR) has purchased Home Chef, the biggest privately owned meal kit delivery firm in the United States. The deal includes $200 million upfront and could be worth $700 million should Home Chef hit certain targets over its next five years. It is an interesting acquisition, given that rival Blue Apron Holdings Inc. (NYSE: APRN) has struggled since its IPO. Though APRN stock was up 3.8% this morning on news of the Home Chef deal, the stock is trading at just $3.07. It hit the market at $11.00 in June 2017. Look for additional earnings reports from Splunk Inc. (Nasdaq: SPLK), Deckers Outdoor Corp. (Nasdaq: DECK), Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS), Ross Stores Inc. (Nasdaq: ROST), Autodesk Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSK), and Hormel Foods Corp. (NYSE: HRL).

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

What happened

Shares of natural gas and renewable natural gas provider Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) are up 25.1% at 12:25 p.m. EDT on March 13, following the release of the company’s fourth-quarter and full-year 2018 financial results yesterday after market close. 

The company reported revenue and earnings numbers that both came in ahead of analyst expectations. Fourth-quarter revenue was $96.2 million, up 8% from last year, while GAAP net income came in at $6.9 million, compared to a $28.3 million net loss in the year-ago period. On a per-share basis, that works out to $0.03 earnings per share, while most analysts who cover the stock had projected a small loss.

So what

It isn’t just the solid revenue and GAAP earnings results that have Mr. Market excited today. Because natural gas commodity prices can swing wildly, looking at revenue alone doesn’t always show whether the company is actually growing.

    Another year, another teardown estimating the bill of materials (BOM) for the newest Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. Last year’s iPhone X was estimated at roughly $370 to build for a base 64 GB model. Investors often use these types of third-party BOM estimates as a way to gauge how profitable the new gadgets are, which has implications for the company’s gross margin. With the iPhone XS Max priced at $1,100 to $1,450, it has the potential to be incredibly profitable. However, the device does have the largest display that Apple has ever put into an iPhone, and it also uses expensive OLED technology.

    If you’ve been following the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone rumor mill, you probably know that Apple is preparing to launch three new iPhones this year. One of the new iPhones is expected to be an upgraded version of the current premium iPhone X and another is expected to be a larger version of the updated iPhone X, which I’ll refer to as the iPhone X Plus.
