Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

The smart speaker market is already proving to be a massive success for some of the world’s biggest tech companies. Worldwide shipments of the devices grew by 187% in the second quarter of this year, with Alphabet’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google and Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) leading the way, according to new data from Canalys.

Google Home’s smart speaker held onto its top spot from the previous quarter and shipped 5.4 million of its devices to take 32.3% of the worldwide market. Meanwhile, rival Amazon — whose Echo speakers were once the undisputed smart speaker leader — shipped 4.1 million devices and currently has 24.5% of the market.

Amazon had a head start in the smart speaker space, but Google’s current lead shows just how good the tech giant is at entering new tech markets and dominating them.

    Whiteman: Sure. Leidos (NYSE:LDOS) is the one I would look at more than anything. The ticker there is LDOS. They, thanks to a deal in 2016 that purchased the IT business of Lockheed Martin, are the largest business in terms of revenue in an area where scale is very important — manpower, getting these big contracts, the contracts are ever-bigger. With the budget deal passed earlier this year, a lot of this IT work is what got pushed to the sidelines or delayed. They weren’t going to stop buying F-35s because of sequestration. What they did was, they stopped awarding these IT contracts.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Ballard]

    You don’t always have to chase the fanciest tech companies to find growth in the market. A case in point is Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN), which has delivered market-beating returns over the last decade making chips for things as banal as electric toothbrushes, among many other electronic devices.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

    Fitness trackers for kids have generally been a hard sell as a product category. Niche leader Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) introduced Ace in March, its first foray into child-geared fitness trackers. Fitbit hasn’t put out any initial sales metrics for the kid-friendly wristband that offers up virtual badges for achievements and an app to keep parents in the know and the kids engaged. Fitbit only mentioned that Ace is generating positive momentum and market reception in its second-quarter earnings call, but it wasn’t enough to lift Fitbit sales out of what is now nearly two years of declines.

Best Bank Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Hedge fund manager Kyle Samani embraces his job making multimillion-dollar bets on the wild market for cryptocurrencies, but he’s long contended with a headache: Ensuring his holdings aren’t stolen.

Samani, a managing partner at Multicoin Capital, hopes to offload that task soon. He’s among a small group of institutional investors who have been testing Coinbase Inc.’s new crypto custody service, one of scores of such offerings in development. Some services are now almost ready — with huge implications for the market’s future.

“There are a lot of investors where custodianship was the final barrier,” Samani said in a phone interview. “Over the next year, the market will come to recognize that custodianship is a solved problem. This will unlock a big wave of capital.”

Coinbase expects to win approval soon to serve clients requiring a so-called qualified custodian that meets tough U.S. standards for guarding assets, according to a spokesman. It’s among crypto startups including Circle and BitGo that have been talking with regulators. In May, investment bank Nomura Holdings Inc. joined crypto firms Ledger and Global Advisors to create a custody consortium called Komainu. And at least three giant Wall Street custodians — Bank of New York Mellon Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Northern Trust Corp. — are working on crypto-custody services or exploring it, people briefed on their efforts said.

Best Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

U.S. stocks have trounced their foreign counterparts over the course of the current bull market, but the era of American stock market dominance began to wane this year. “For the first time in years, we’re seeing a broad-based global ecnomic recovery,” says Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Leuthold Group. And although the U.S. is in the late stages of the recovery, foreign economies have more ground to make up—a boon for stocks in those countries.
