    Last month, Chevron (NYSE: CVX) unveiled plans to acquire Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE: APC) for $33 billion in cash and stock. Anadarko execs signed on the dotted line, agreeing to a $1 billion breakup fee should the deal be scuttled for any reason. That was a mistake, particularly knowing there was another interested suitor.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Google has so far struggled in making a name for itself in wearables and smartwatches, as Wear OS (initially named Android Wear) failed to gain any meaningful traction and many prominent hardware partners ditched the platform. Apple and Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) currently lead the way in smartwatches, but Google hopes to take another swing with its forthcoming Pixel Watch. As part of those efforts, Google recently bought smartwatch tech and acqui-hired employees from Fossil for $40 million.

    Three stories in tech stood out this week.

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) showed off new devices with an emphasis on affordability. Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the company’s plans to beef up messaging and stories on its platforms. Eventbrite’s (NYSE:EB) stock took a big hit after its quarterly results came out.

    Here’s a closer look.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Press coverage about Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has trended somewhat positive recently, according to InfoTrie. The research group ranks the sentiment of press coverage by reviewing more than 6,000 blog and news sources. The firm ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of negative five to positive five, with scores nearest to five being the most favorable. Fitbit earned a coverage optimism score of 2.00 on their scale. InfoTrie also gave news coverage about the scientific and technical instruments company an news buzz score of 4 out of 10, indicating that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an impact on the stock’s share price in the next several days.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    After a couple challenging years, Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has started to mount a turnaround. The company has already returned to profitability. In no uncertain terms, the Versa is driving that progress, positioned as a mainstream smartwatch that can appeal to average consumers. Versa’s predecessor, the Iconic, in contrast, was a flop because it was priced too high and targeted a smaller niche of performance users.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    Consider one of my favorite stocks in the market, Square (NYSE:SQ), which hit an all-time high of more than $100 just a couple of weeks ago. After the recent market drop, Square is trading for about $78 as I write this, so I might consider buying more soon. (Note: I can’t buy any stocks I mention for a few days.)

  • [By Trey Thoelcke]

    Square Inc. (NASDAQ: SQ) is expected to have 54.8% EPS growth in the next five years, a jump from less than 9% in the past five years. This payment solutions company has one of the highest growth rates out there, and some now lump it in with the FANG stocks. But shares are only around 10% higher year to date, less than the Nasdaq. Its next earnings report is expected later this month.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Square’s (NYSE:SQ) Cash App is wildly popular, but isn’t really making any money — yet. In a recent interview, CFO Sarah Friar discussed Square’s long-term banking ambitions. To put it mildly, any banking, brokerage, or lending traction the company gains with its millions of Cash App users could be a big profit driver in the future.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    However, they shouldn’t ignore three other high-growth companies that are changing how companies do business over the internet: Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), Square (NYSE:SQ), and GrubHub (NYSE:GRUB). All three stocks have generated multibagger returns over the past three years, and they could soar even higher on some long-term tailwinds.

  • [By ]

    If you have a long-term investing mentality like this, here’s why you should take a closer look at Realty Income (NYSE:O), Square (NYSE:SQ), and HCP (NYSE:HCP). I own all three stocks — not because I expect them to make me rich tomorrow, but because they have some serious growth potential over the next few decades.

Top 10 Tech Stocks For 2019

Investors on the watch for a bear market in global equities should keep their eyes on Europe, according to Gavekal Research.

“This animal is the sneaky sort and victims rarely see it coming,” said Charles Gave, founder of the Hong-Kong based asset-allocation consultancy, in a note to clients Wednesday. “If a bear market is to unfold, this will probably start outside of the U.S.”

The likely location would be the euro zone, Gave said, where the single currency system “has now been destroying southern European economies for 20 years and local populations are increasingly unwilling to take the beating.”

Two indicators developed by the researcher, one technical and one fundamental, paint a “worrying picture” in non-U.S. markets, according to the report. They show stocks outside America have started to underperform, and risk appetite is falling, it said.

The data is solid, but a one-and-done SMA treatment is already in late-stage studies at Novartis’ (NYSE:NVS), and that therapy could become available as soon as 2019.

  • [By Brian Orelli]

    Data source: Ionis Pharmaceuticals.

    What happened with Ionis Pharmaceuticals this quarter?
    Revenue increased thanks to $41 million in royalties from Biogen’s (NASDAQ:BIIB) sales of Spinraza, up from just $5 million in the year-ago quarter. Because the tiered royalty rates reset each year, the royalties as a percentage of sales will end up being higher in the quarters to come this year. Despite the higher revenue, earnings turned negative on a GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) basis: Ionis and Akcea Therapeutics (NASDAQ:AKCA) increased spending in preparation for the launch of Tegsedi for hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (hATTR), and Waylivra for familial chylomicronemia syndrome, a rare disease that causes the buildup of lipids. Ionis is still the majority owner of Akcea, so its financials are incorporated into Ionis’ financials. The Food and Drug Administration pushed back its goal for making a decision on the marketing application for Tegsedi (the new brand name for inotersen) to Oct. 6, 2018. Ionis provided additional data analysis that the FDA needs additional time to review. In April, Ionis signed another deal with Biogen to develop antisense drugs for neurological disorders. In the deal, Ionis gets $1 billion up front, including an equity investment, in exchange for Biogen having first choice of neurology targets on which to exclusively collaborate with Ionis. Biogen is paying for everything beyond the initial discovery stage, with Ionis eligible for royalties and milestone payments as the drugs advance.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now: Radient Technologies (RTI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    There’s an old business adage…. it’s not so much what you know, but who you know. If that’ s truly the case (and it is), then shareholders in Radient Technologies Inc (CVE:RTI) should be elated. The newest member of the Board of Directors that not already knows a lot of the right people, but has pretty much done all of things Radient would like to accomplish in the near future. That is, he was on the board for another ingredient and chemical company that was eventually acquired, but he also holds a masters degree in engineering. He can do it all, understanding the art and science of the business.

    It’s yet another reason for RTI investors to be enthused.

    Radient Technologies isn’t exactly a new company, but it’s relative notoriety is a fairly new phenomenon.

    The organization, in simplest terms, has developed an ingredient-extraction process called microwave assisted processing, or “MAP,” for short. As the name implies, the use of radio microwaves helps the extraction process along.

    Using its patented MAP process, Radient is able to selectively deposit microwave energy into a biomass (source material) and heat the target elements while leaving other materials in the mix unaltered. The near-instantaneous “in-core” heating that occurs creates pressure which drives out the targeting ingredient or component much faster than more conventional extraction methods. In fact, the pressure-driven process outperforms the conventional extraction on pretty much every front. That is, the technique reduces the extraction time from hours to minutes, delivers a higher active ingredient purity, increases the recovery of actives from often scarce biomass, and uses much less solvent and energy than the more typical approach.

    The technique can, and already has, created natural ingredients for global customers across a range of industries, including food and beverage, nutrition, supplements, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

    Some of the stories about how cannabis has changed lives for the better are nothing less than astounding. Take Illinois resident Darren Miller as an example. In 2015 Miller was diagnosed with lung cancer that was later deemed terminal. Miller underwent chemotherapy, without much hope, but also began using high-THC Indica cannabis oil. Miller is alive today, and arguably shouldn’t be.

    Then there’s Floridian Branden Petro. Not only does Petro suffer epilepsy, he commonly experiences seizures stemming from the condition. Nothing has stopped the seizures as quickly or effectively as 200 milligram worth of THC cannabis oil, administered as a nasal spray. Within 20 seconds of using it, it’s as of the seizure never happened.

    And there are millions of other such (and less dramatic) examples, all pointing in the same direction – cannabis has medical value on multiple fronts. Not facilitating its commercialization is a wasted opportunity.

    It’s a notion that’s far from lost on the people that have built Canadian-based Radient Technologies Inc (CVE:RTI) from the round up, recently inking a deal with supplier of cannabinoid extracts, Aurora Cannabis.

    It’s a real accolade. Aurora is one of the largest licensed producers of medical cannabis under Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), and recently began construction on an unprecedented 800,000 square foot production facility in Leduc County, Alberta. This facility, known as “Aurora Sky”, is anticipated to be capable of producing in excess of 100,000 kg of high-quality, low-cost marijuana per year.

    In most regards though, Radient Technologies is the big winner of the deal, as the partnership is apt to put its high-tech facility in full demand, helping to advance the advent of cannabis in all its potential glory.

    It’s a rather amazing science, really. Radient Technologies uses an ingredient-extraction process called microwave assisted proc

    At first glance, a new set of rules from the Drug Enforcement Agency unveiled in the middle of December looked like it posed a problem for cannabis-newcomer Radient Technologies Inc (CVE:RTI). By assigning a controlled substances code number to ‘marijuana extract,’ simultaneously distinguishing (and acknowledging the differences of marijuana, hemp and their derivatives as Schedule I substances. As the ruling’s language explained, “This code number will allow DEA and DEA-registered entities to track quantities of this material separately from quantities of marihuana. This, in turn, will aid in complying with relevant treaty provisions.”

    It presents something of an uncertainty, as it was not clear of the DEA also meant hemp and cannabis extracts when it used the term ‘marijuana extract.’ After all, the Drug Enforcement Agency has thus far done a poor job of distinguishing between hemp and marijuana, but has generally erred on the side of grouping everything as marijuana…. even if it didn’t cause a ‘high,’ and even if it did provide a medical benefit. If that was indeed the case, Radient Technologies may well be a non-starter in its quest to get into the cannabis business.

    No need to worry. Though it took weeks to get some much-needed clarification, the DEA has finally explained what it was saying two months ago. Indeed, the new ruling may actually help the medical marijuana — cannabis — along. DEA spokesman Russ Baer said in an e-mail to The Cannabist, “(The rule change) recognizes that there is a potential medical benefit to some of the cannabinoids.”

    Some still worry the wording of the law essentially, even if unintentionally, puts cannabinoids (or CBD) under the purveyance of the DEA; it’s currently not. Even so, if nothing else the ruling has the government moving towards clarity, after acknowledging CBD — the healthy version of the cannabis, and not the one that gets you high — has medical value. The next step is clarifying ho
