Hot Tech Stocks To Own Right Now

U.S. equities are bouncing between gains and losses on Tuesday as investors remain preoccupied with the potential for trade tariffs from the Trump Administration. And while headlines related to issues like inflation, higher interest rates and Federal Reserve policy tightening have faded somewhat, these are going to return to the forefront later this week when the February jobs report is released on Friday.

Amid the listlessness, one sector group is showing undeniable strength. And that’s semiconductors, an area of the market that has doubled since the summer of 2016 on internet of things hype. The sector is in the news today amid reports that a U.S. security panel has warned against Broadcom Ltd’s (NASDAQ:AVGO) hostile bid for Qualcomm, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) on fears it would allow the Chinese to dominate 5G technology.

Here are five semiconductor stocks on the move right now:

    Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) has had a difficult year dealing with a smartphone industry downturn, but those buying company stock in recent weeks, at least, don’t seem to mind.

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) is in a spot of bother as weak demand for its mobile chips led to a slight decline in its revenue during the fiscal third quarter. But that didn’t keep it from raising its dividend. Skyworks management decided to boost the quarterly dividend by 19% to $0.38 per share. This is surprising, as the company’s outlook doesn’t inspire much confidence.

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

I’ve been right about Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) thus far.

There seem to be only two schools on Tesla. You either love the “carmaker,” or you hate it with a passion. I fall into the latter category, not because I’m anti clean energy, or opposed to new entries to the auto industry, but because of the grandiose and inefficient management history the company has had under Elon Musk. I’ve written often about the competition and general cutthroat nature of the auto industry that Tesla faces. I’ve been waiting for some time to see signs of Tesla’s inability to ramp up car production in a way that justifies its wild stock valuation. And boy howdy have I taken some flak in the comments section.

This week has given me some vindication on my feelings about Tesla. The stock is down on rough news of production complications, and a fading faith in Elon Musk’s rhetoric, something I said would happen. The valuation is not justified, and cannot be justified when you’re selling such a small amount of cars and not turning any profit. I get it that this stock performance is about future potential earnings, but the company is not putting together concrete evidence that it is working toward those types of numbers.

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Sogou’s shares are prone to big swings for a couple of simple reasons.

    As a Chinese business, many American investors don’t feel connected to Sogou’s business and might not have access to some important sources of information about this company and its stock. Though Sogou has been around for nearly a decade now, it only entered the public markets in November of 2017. It’s a new ticker, untested on the market, and not always easily understood through year-over-year or longer-term analyses. At the IPO, Chinese internet giants Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) combined for a total ownership of 82% of Sogu’s business. Those stakes later declined to 71%, but Sohu and Tencent remain Sogou’s largest shareholders, with 96% of the voting power in shareholder elections and votes. Regular investors hold a very small stake in Sogou, which tends to boost the stock’s volatility.

    Moreover, Chinese regulators launched an investigation of Sogou in June, forcing the company to shut down parts of its online advertising operations for 10 days in early July. The company is accused of showing video ads that insulted a national hero. That blackout will reduce Sogou’s third-quarter revenues by a significant but unannounced amount.

    It’s now been seven months since Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) completed its objective of spinning off Sogou. Sogou had been the fastest growing component at Sohu for years.

Top Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Theres reason tothink that President Trump might target uranium imports for tariffs after imposing them on solar equipment back in January and then another announcing another round late last week on steel and aluminum (China has alreadyresponded by announcing planned tariffs on imports of U.S. pork, recycled aluminum, steel pipes, fruit and wine). At first glance, you might think that wouldcause concern forinvestors in small cap mining stocks like Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX-V: AAZ; OTCMKTS: AZURF) which is focused on developing critical clean energy elements (namely lithium, uranium and cobalt plus other critical clean energy elements) mostly in Canada.

However, Trump didquickly declared a temporary exemption from his tariffs for the European Union and other nations like Australia and South Korea as the tariffs are clearly meant to hit China. The NAFTA countries of Canada and Mexico were also exempted; but those exemptions”are not open-ended” and will depend on whether changes are made to NAFTA that will satisfy Trump.
