Top 5 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

On this episode of Industry Focus: Tech, host Dylan Lewis is joined by Fool.com contributor Danny Vena to discuss ways that iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ) is improving its competitive advantage.

A full transcript follows the video.

This video was recorded on May 11, 2018.

Dylan Lewis: This property just got spun out of Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) fairly recently. Shares have not been trading all that long. And in that time, we’ve seen the usual fluctuations that you might expect from a new issuance hitting the public markets. Some of that is due to some recent developments that are helping the company out.

Danny Vena: Personally, when I see a company IPO, I like to watch it for a little bit, see what’s happening, get a feel for how the financials are doing. Everybody puts their best foot forward in their SEC filings, not that they’re being dishonest, but they want you to see the metrics that put them in the best light. So, you want to watch them for a couple of quarters and see what’s going on.

Hot Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

With the U.S. stock market in the midst of an October sell-off, Wall Street analysts who study charts for a living are worried the situation could get much worse. Among the reasons that have technical analysts concerned are a breakdown in the bull market leaders and a drop by the S&P 500 below its average price of the last 50 days.

The S&P 500 is down 2.5 percent for October and counting amid Wednesday’s slide.

“The selling is a result of selling the best performing stocks this year and it is difficult to time when that selling pressure will slow,” said JC O’Hara, chief market technician at MKM Partners, in a note. “The best-performing decile of S&P 500 stocks this year is lower by 6.6 percent in October. Today, that basket is lower by 1.7 percent (the worst of all 10 deciles).”

“Until we see some stabilization in that basket, we will continue to see weakness,” O’Hara said.
