From a solar-powered sports arena, to bitcoin and&a;nbsp;now&a;nbsp;cryptocurrency mining, the Sacramento Kings are back at it, setting the stages for yet another technological blueprint in the technology sector. The NBA organization announced Wednesday that it has partnered with global cryptocurrency leader, MiningStore.com, to become the first sports team in the world to mine digital currency. That&a;rsquo;s right, the Kings can add another &a;ldquo;first&q; to its scoreboard of ever-growing technological innovations.

Top 5 Tech Stocks For 2019: Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.(TTWO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The video game industry has gotten crowded, and that’s put even giants like Take-Two Interactive Software (NASDAQ:TTWO) into a difficult position. Blockbuster releases like the long-awaited Red Dead Redemption 2 are instrumental for a company’s long-term success, but high expectations make it very difficult for the company to meet all of the expectations investors build up during the long wait between such releases. Sometimes, that means what appear to be strong gains nevertheless fall short of what people want to see.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Last week, two of the biggest names in the industry, Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA) and Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO), both reported their financial results for the final quarter of 2018. EA reported an 11% gain in sales year over year — but missed earnings expectations big time. Boosted by the success of Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) Take-Two scored an even bigger sales gain of 160%…and also missed earnings. Both companies announced guidance well below expectations, and suffered sell-offs as a result.

Top 5 Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

What happened

After a lackluster start to the year, Rice Energy (NYSE:RICE) rebounded sharply in March, rallying nearly 20%. Fueling that bounce was a recovery in natural gas prices, as well as an analyst upgrade.

So what

Natural gas had been under pressure all year, especially after this past February was the warmest since 1954. By mid-March, gas had lost a quarter of its value because of an oversupplied market. However, it awoke from that slumber toward the end of March thanks in part to the triumphant return of winter, which pounded parts of the nation with a major late-season snowstorm. That storm drove up demand for gas, sending the stocks of several gas producers soaring late last month, including Rice Energy and larger rivalsChesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) and Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), which both rose more than 5%.

When my friend Seth asked me to invest in his new wine store, the decision was easy…   He'd already answered the most important question you must ask before making an investment.   Most investors forget to ask this question. But as I'll explain today, if you know how to answer it, you'll set yourself apart from the crowd…   I got to know Seth while I was in medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and he was the wine buyer for a local grocery store… He was educated as a chef and was working on his Master Sommelier badge. (A "sommelier" or "wine steward" is the wine expert at high-end restaurants. You must pass an exam to throw around the snooty French title, and "master" is the highest level of certification.)   Seth always gave great suggestions for meal and wine pairings and would remember them months later… As a customer, I could tell he cared about me, listened, and gave great advice (a spectacular combination). So when he approached me about backing his shop… I knew he understood wine and had a passion for it.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market.

On the campaign trail, Trump promised to spend $1 trillion to shore up America's roads, bridges and railways, but that plan has been pushed off to 2018.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Allison Transmission Holdings, Inc.(ALSN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    With a neutral sector rating, we are working on evaluating risks to negative calls, and identifying potential value opportunities. Last week we noted more work might be worthwhile on Wabco Holdings (WBC), Terex, Manitowoc (MTW), and Caterpillar, two of those names have rallied for other reasons but the attractive price made the upside/downside skew up. We remain positive (OW) on Allison Transmission Holdings (ALSN) & United Rentals. Our and consensus 2017Allison Transmission Holdings estimates have fallen by 2% vs. ~15% for the group, while the shares are down 10% since launch. We continue to see United Rentals as the best value in our group…

    On Wednesday, the energy sector proved to be a source of strength for the market. Leading the sector was strength from SM Energy Co (NYSE: SM) and W&T Offshore, Inc. (NYSE: WTI).

  • [By John Bromels]

    Shares of oil and gas drillerW&T Offshore(NYSE:WTI) fell throughout April, finishing the month at $2.04 per share, down 26.4%.

    W&T is a small company primarily focused on natural gas liquids production in the Gulf of Mexico. In April, its market cap dropped about $100 million to $280 million. Huge swings like that aren’t uncommon for small companies, but what was unusual was the apparent lack of rationale for the drop.
