Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    It is hard to fully wrap your hands around the potential market opportunity that Accenture will have in the years ahead but I believe that the opportunities are almost endless (dramatic, I know). For example, consider these forecasts that Forbes detailed in its “2017 Roundup Of Internet Of Things Forecast” report:

    According to Bain, “B2B IoT segments will generate more than $300B annually by 2020, including about $85B in the industrial sector”. According to PwC, “$6T will be spent on IoT solutions between 2015 and 2020”. According to Accenture, “Industrial Internet Of Things could add $14.2T to the economy by 2020”. According to Statista, “The global Internet of Things (IoT) market is projected to grow from $2.99T in 2014 to $8.9T in 2020, attaining a 19.92% Compound Annual Growth Rate (OTCPK:CAGR). Industrial manufacturing is predicted to increase from $472B in 2014 to $890B in global IoT spending. Healthcare and life sciences are projected to increase from $520B in 2014 to $1.335T in 2020, attaining a 17% CAGR”.

    The forecasts compiled by Forbes are all over the place but one thing is consistent, that is, the growth potential for IoT (and the sub-industries) is real. Connected things are expected to experience significant growth and I believe that it is hard to deny that digital will play a key role in the future growth of the global economy.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

India’s gold demand grew by 9.1 per cent to 727 tonne in 2017 due to low prices coinciding with Dhanteras, positive economic backdrop and improved consumer sentiment especially in rural areas, according to a World Gold Council (WGC) report.

The total demand stood at 666.1 tonnes in 2016, WGC said in its latest Gold Demand Trends report.

Also, the government’s decision to remove anti-money laundering regulation, the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), from jewellery helped boost demand.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019

"Short Sellers Retreat Amid Rally," ran the headline in the Wall Street Journal.   Curious readers stopped and stared. It was the premise of the headline that arrested them. Who knew that there was even one bear left to give ground at the 100-month mark of the post-2008 levitation?   El toro is the topic at hand. It's a most unusual bull market (we count as one the updrafts in stocks and bonds). An unzestful, low-volume, and low-volatility affair, it seems to belong on a psychiatrist's couch. We write to catalogue its singularities with the purpose of addressing the always pertinent question: What to do with money besides enjoy it?   No. 1 is the zest deficit. Since the S&P 500 Index bottomed at an intraday low of 666.79 on March 6, 2009, the blue chips have appreciated by 271%. The country has grown, too, although – famously – the economic expansion leaves much to be desired. Trailing 12-month earnings for the S&P 500 peaked in the third quarter of 2014, and disappointments abound in the data that purport to measure growth in GDP and productivity.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018

Lee Adler

Last Monday, I promised I’d tell you a little bit more about the fed funds rate. Well, the more I started writing about it, the angrier I got.

The Fed’s policy of raising interest rates is a sham. We may as well call the fed funds rate the fake funds rate. The policy is the opposite of monetary tightening and actually is an easing. And the fed funds rate and all other published interest rates are based on a sham… costing you money every year if you are a U.S. taxpayer.

Here’s how the scam works and what you should do about it.

How the Fed Gets Away with Padding Bank Profits

The Fed’s real policy tightening, called “normalization,” is where the Fed will actually withdraw money from the banking system and extinguish it. That begins this month. But meanwhile the banks and the monetary system are still awash in $2.7 trillion in excess cash. With all that cash sloshing around the system, if the market didn’t believe in magic, then rates would not be moving up.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Cramer and Moreno next looked at Northrop Grumman (NOC) . Shares have behaved better than Boeing amid concerns over a potential trade war with China. The stock sold off with everything else in February, but quickly bounced back to new highs. For the past couple of months, the stock has been trading sideways between $336 and $359. Now, Moreno’s methodology here is to look at the height of the channel, then use that to come up with a projection of where the stock might be headed. On a breakout to the upside, he could see Northrop Grumman going to $383, up $32 from where it’s now trading. On a breakdown, though, it could sink to $312.

    That funding progress is important given an unexpected development in the quarter when the Federal Regulatory Commission (FERC) revised a long-standing policy and will no longer allow master limited partnerships to collect an allowance for income taxes on certain pipelines. That change could have a major impact on the cash flows of TransCanada’s MLP TC Pipelines, LP (NYSE:TCP). While TC Pipelines isn’t sure how much this change will impact its cash flow, it took precautionary actions by slashing its distribution to investors. That payout reduction and the related uncertainty has weighed significantly on TC Pipelines’ valuation. Because of that, Girling said that “further dropdowns of assets by TransCanada into TC Pipelines is not considered a viable funding option at this time,” and he isn’t sure if it will be one in the future. However, he did clarify that even without future dropdowns to TC Pipelines, TransCanada believes it has the “financial capacity to fund our existing capital program through our predictable and growing cash flow from operations as well as several other funding alternatives.”

  • [By Jason Moser]

     Not intimidated by the Fed’s 25-basis-point rate hike in December, Jason chose Ellie Mae (ELLI), a company with a leading cloud productthat facilitates and streamlines the mortgage originations process.

    “Its primary offering, Encompass, is a cloud-based one-stop shop for mortgage originators, allowing them to manage the loan process from start to finish,” Moser says. And by streamlining the process, Ellie Mae’s Encompass “increases efficiency and loan quality, reduces documentation errors, and helps keep everyone out of regulatory trouble.”

    With trailing revenues just below $250 million, Moser pegs the market opportunity as a $5 billion pie, and thinks ELLI will prove to be one of the best stocks to buy for 2016.

    From a technical perspective, IPHI jumped higher here right above some near-term support at $12.44 with heavy upside volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last five months, with shares soaring higher from its low of $8.62 to its intraday high of $13.85. During that uptrend, shares of IPHI have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move briefly pushed shares of IPHI into breakout territory, since the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $13.50.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IPHI as long as it’s trending above some near-term support at $12.44 and then once it sustains a move or close above its new 52-week high at $13.85 with volume that hits near or above 202,080 shares. If we get that move soon, then IPHI will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are its next major overhead resistance levels at $14.79 to $16.94, or possibly even $18.
