Top High Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

It’s that time of the year. Tech giant Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is scheduled for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next week. As usual, Apple will kick off the week with a keynote, featuring the company’s latest software and possibly some new products.

Last year, Apple’s WWDC was jam-packed with announcements, including software updates, a sneak peak of the all-new iMac Pro, the introduction of the HomePod, a redesigned App Store, a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and more. But what’s in store for WWDC this year?

Here’s what to look for on Monday.

Software

Since the main focus of WWDC is software, investors can expect previews of new versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who is generally very reliable when it comes to Apple rumors, says some of the software features beyond Apple’s usual operating system updates may include digital health tools designed to help users keep track of the time they spend using their smartphones and apps; an updated augmented reality (AR) development platform, presumably called ARKit 2; and improved features for snoozing notifications.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    In the cloud computing industry, it’s important not to get left behind, but the rapid pace of innovation makes it hard to keep up. Open Text (NASDAQ:OTEX) has understood the threat of letting its competitors build up a lead in what it sees as the greatest opportunity it has for growth, and it wants to defend its turf and work at surpassing the competition through a combination of organic growth and smart strategic combinations.

    It also includes a number of companies we’ve recommended in the past and that will surely be a benefit to your portfolio. To name just a few of these…

    VMware Inc. (NYSE: VMW) is a top provider of cloud computing and networking solutions to a wide range of industries. Its healthcare software, for example, allows practitioners to stay mobile and access patient information and other relevant analytics on their smartphones – without compromising the security of that data. Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) is a Silicon Valley tech giant that’s been around for over three decades. Its founders were pioneers in connecting PCs via local area networks (LANs). More recently, it’s developed a hybrid cloud solution for Google Cloud customers, creating stiff competition for Amazon Web Services. Open Text Corp. (NASDAQ: OTEX) confirms Michael Robinson’s mantra that every company is a tech company. It provides cloud-based information analytics for just about every facet of institutions large and small, enabling them to increase efficiency, cut costs, and generate bigger profits.

    The final category of SKYY’s holdings is non-pure-play cloud computing companies. These seven companies provide products and services that support cloud technology indirectly.

    Box was an early mover in the content and file management space in enterprise markets. In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,  Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.

Many actively managed mutual funds operate with &a;ldquo;black box&a;rdquo; strategies that give investors little information about how the managers pick stocks. Fund documents will give vague platitudes about how the managers use &a;ldquo;fundamental analysis&a;rdquo; to find &a;ldquo;highly profitable&a;rdquo; companies that are &a;ldquo;undervalued&a;rdquo;, but these terms lack clear definition.

This lack of clarity is a significant problem for investors.

    To be able to cut a check each month and maintain or raise the payout requires a company to have tenable confidence in its profit-making and cash-generating capabilities. It’s easier said than done, which is why while most companies pay dividends quarterly, and only around 40 publicly listed companies pay a dividend every month. Three such companies worth watching are STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG), Realty Income (NYSE:O), and Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA).

    The stock market had a mixed session on Friday, and most major benchmarks finished close to unchanged. Investors continue to deal with conflicting influences on stocks, with reasonably favorable earnings reports that nevertheless point toward the possibility of slower growth ahead. Meanwhile, geopolitical and macroeconomic factors paint a gloomier picture of the near future. Some stocks reflected that negative sentiment, and Goodyear Tire & Rubber (NASDAQ:GT), Henry Schein (NASDAQ:HSIC), and Seattle Genetics (NASDAQ:SGEN) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

The stock market kept performing well on Monday, and the Dow Jones Industrials posted its 12th straight all-time record high. Market sentiment was sunny following the release of Warren Buffett’s annual shareholder letter over the weekend, and the Oracle of Omaha made positive comments about the sustainability of the current bull market, which was able to overcome early declines in the major market benchmarks. However, some stocks didn’t fare as well as the overall market, and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), AmTrust Financial Services (NASDAQ:AFSI), and Horizon Pharma (NASDAQ:HZNP) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Tesla gets a poor review

Shares of Tesla fell 4% after the electric car manufacturer received a downgrade from analysts at Goldman Sachs. The Wall Street giant cut its rating on Tesla from neutral to sell, citing concerns about the company’s ability to launch its Model 3 mass-market sedan, execute on the strategy behind its acquisition of solar specialist SolarCity, and deal with the need to tap the capital markets to raise cash. Yet even the bearish analysts admit that Tesla has a competitive advantage over rival automakers with respect to the technology and architecture of its electric vehicles, and Tesla’s efforts to boost battery production appear to be working. Nevertheless, the question facing investors is whether Tesla can execute well on the huge opportunity it has in front of it, and at least in Goldman’s eyes, that could prove more difficult than initially thought.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019: Costco Wholesale Corporation(COST)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    There are plenty of jokes about buying in bulk at warehouse chains such as Costco (Nasdaq: COST), such as this tweet by@amour72mg: “I’m going toCostcotomorrow. Anyone need 7 lbs of cheese?” That may be amusing, but if you or your household consumes a fair amount of cheese, that large quantity isn’t so unreasonable. Buying your household staples in volume is often a smart, money-saving move. Not always, but often. Make a note of the things you consume a lot of and then compare the prices at your regular shopping location (such as your supermarket) with the prices at your favorite warehouse store. Acomparisonof prices at a Costco and aWalmart(NYSE: WMT) earlier this year by the folks at kitchn.com found prices lower at Costco by 11% for milk, by 16% for eggs, and by 30% for wild Alaskan salmon. (Prices were lower at Walmart for some items, though, such as sliced turkey and paper towels.)

    There are several parts of the value chain that create natural and organic goods:

    Individual organic farmers, who you largely cannot invest in. Producers of organic foods, who take farmer’s goods and combine them for consumption. This includes players likeHain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN),SunOpta, andLifeway Foods. Grocers with a focus on natural and organic goods, which originally includedWhole Foods (now owned by Amazon),Sprouts Farmers Market (NASDAQ:SFM), andNatural Grocers — what I refer to as “pure-play,” which are grocers with a sole focus on organic. But the list now includes big names likeKroger(NYSE:KR),Costco(NASDAQ:COST), andWalmart(NYSE:WMT). Distributors specializing in natural and organic food, primarilyUnited Natural Foods.

    When the Great Recession hit, many of these pure-play natural and organic companies (read: not Costco, Walmart, or Kroger) were devastated. Consumers were pinching pennies and unwilling to pay the extra money for organic fruits.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

After a promising start to 2018, major stock indexes forfeited their yearly gains over the past few weeks amid heightened concerns about a looming trade war between the U.S. and China. Now, as investors look to rebound from what has been a tough stretch for many, it could prove prudent to dig deep into the tried-and-true strategies of Wall Street’s top figures.

One of those top performers is, of course, the legendary Warren Buffett. Dubbed the “Oracle of Omaha” for his decades of success, Buffett has amassed billions of dollars through a meticulous brand of value investing that touts patience and confidence. Simply put, Buffett and his Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B ) firm are icons of the investing world.

Berkshire Hathaway’s U.S. long stock portfolio holds positions in 45 individual stocks, with the five-largest of those positions accounting for roughly 62% of its total value. This portfolio is tracked by a large swath of investors looking to mimic the success of Berkshire’s legendary CEO.
