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.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Want to learn how to read stock charts? 

Well, we called in Bruce Kamich, our resident Chart Professor, to help you learn that and more.

He walked us through four basic charts:

Line — The simplest chart because it only requires one piece of data: the stock’s last price.  So it’s basically like connect the dots but leaves out important info all-time highs, etc…. Bar — Three prices are included here: the stock’s high price, low price and its closing price of the day or week are all included in each of the individual bars line that make up this chart. Candlestick — Four prices included here: the open, the high the low and the close all make up the little rectangle shape on this chart.  relation to the open and the close — if we close below the opening — bearish and the   .  If we close above the open price, bullish  ed or pink is bearish white is bullish —  Point and Figure — The oldest chart in U.S., it dates back to 1880’s and  And a mark only is made on this chart when the stock moves a predetermined price.  In the chart in this video, each X represents a 10 points move up. A 0 notes a reaction to the move.

And then talked about the three things you need to do with each of those charts:

    Following the reform, Mexico drew multi-billion dollars' investment. It could lead up to an output of 3 MMBbl/d by the end of the planned period, as predicted by the supporters of the reform. The reform could also bring down electricity rates in the country. So far, Mexico has awarded around 90 contracts, both onshore and offshore. The country raised about $100 billion from the auctions by the end of January. With nine oil and gas blocks, Shell has emerged as the leading player in the auctions held so far. Other winners in the bidding processes include Eni S.p.A. (NYSE: E)of Italy, Inpex of Japan, France's TOTAL S.A. (NYSE: TOT), Chevron and more.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ENI (NYSE:E) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “With recovering oil prices, Eni’s operating profits from its Refining & Marketing business has gone down in the first half of 2018 against the comparable period of 2017. Also, operating profit from its Chemical business fell 79% during this period due to rising costs of oil-based feedstock. Moreover, Eni has sold 50% of its stake in the Zohr field, a high yielding project, which can impact its revenues. Fall in demand for products like gasoil and gasoline, in Italy, is also a concern for the company. If this consumption trend persists, the company’s profit levels will get affected. Given these headwinds, Eni seems like a risky bet that ordinary investors should exit.”

    Doubling your money in a relatively short time is much tougher. It typically involves investing in younger, less established companies that have lots of growth potential but could give a lot of ground if a few things don’t swing their way. There are, though, some stocks that look like they have a double in them over a relatively short time frame, and three of our investing contributors think Spark Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ONCE), Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO), and American Tower (NYSE:AMT) fit the bill.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

The year thus far has been an amazing one for the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite, and for small-caps. The Nasdaq is up 14% since the end of 2017, while the S&P 600 Small Cap Index is up 15%. The S&P 500 isn’t even 10% higher than where it closed at the end of last year, while the Dow Jones stocks are collectively up less than 8%. It’s not a modest disparity.

A closer look at the recent performance of these groups, however, shows a clear sea change in leadership. Small-caps and the Nasdaq are struggling and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is starting to heat up as investors start to seek out safe-haven blue chips again. The Dow is up more than 10% in just the past three months, while the Nasdaq has gained a little more than 6%.

Point being, most of the Dow Jones stocks are gearing up for a strong finish to the year.

With that as the backdrop, here’s a rundown of the top 10 Dow Jones Stocks to bet on as we head into the final quarter of 2018. In no particular order…

The Nifty in the previous session ended 0.29 percent lower at 10,741.10. It opened on positive note above 10,800-levels and got sold off towards ending the session with a bearish candle.

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

The January jobs report showed more than 100,000 jobs were created last month than economists expected. Beats of that magnitude usually spark a lot of optimism about the economy, driving stocks higher over the subsequent days and months and benefiting energy, industrial and banking stocks the most, history shows.

CNBC analysis using the Kensho tool looked at all the times in the last 20 years when the jobs report exceeded estimates by 100,000 or more and what happens to stocks and certain sectors the day of the report, as well as one week and three months later.

Day of:
S&P 500 jumps 0.6 percent on averageBest stocks: Industrials (+1.1 percent avg. gain), Energy (+0.9 percent), Technology (+0.8 percent) One week later:
S&P 500 adds 0.6 percent on averageBest stocks: Industrials (+1.5 percent avg. gain), Energy (+1.2 percent), Technology (+0.9 percent) Three months later:
S&P 500 adds 1.8 percentBest stocks: Energy (+6.9 percent) Materials (+4.2 percent avg. gain), Industrials (+3.4 percent), Financials (+3.2 percent)

This historical data via Kensho fits with the fundamental case. A much stronger-than-expected jobs report signals the economy is doing better than we thought, so investors pile into economically sensitive stocks like energy and industrial shares. Bank stocks do well as yields jump, as they were on Friday.

Best Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery – we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations – and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

    Last quarter, Alaska Airlines began taking concrete steps to align its fleet plan with its new target of 4% annual growth and $750 million of annual capital expenditures for 2019 and 2020. The carrier restructured its orders with Boeing (NYSE:BA), Airbus (NASDAQOTH:EADSY), and Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) to better fit its projected needs.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    There are two key reasons why Spirit Airlines may be willing to deal with the complications of adding a second fleet type. First, small and midsize markets are more likely to be underserved than the highest-traffic routes. The CSeries jet family — developed by Bombardier but soon to be under Airbus’ control — and Embraer’s (NYSE:ERJ) E2-series E-Jets are better-suited to low traffic markets than any of the Airbus A320-family offerings.

    My timing, however, isn’t always so good, and I sometimes get in too early. But owning a great dividend-paying company at a fair price is better than owning a bad company at any price.

And I’ll be just as happy if they fall further from here.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks For 2018: Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    A Unilever vs. Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) showdown seems to be something out of an alternative, weird universe. But that’s exactly what has been happening in the Asia-Pacific region, where Unilever is now a major seller of air and water purification devices. The acquisitions of Qinyuan and Pureit water purifiers, as well as the acquisition of Sweden-based Blueair in 2016, reflects Unilever’s latest growth strategy of reducing exposure to low-growth brands in favor of greater investments in higher-growth products with strong social and environmental credentials.

    CBAK is in a very competitive industry, as well as being small relative to its competitors. Among the Company’s competitors are giants like Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), but overall it faces competition from Japan, Korea, and China. Although CBAK states that “we are able to leverage our low-cost advantage to compete favorably with our competitors”, it is hard to see that being the reality, especially when looking at the above gross margins. Still, the Company may enjoy lower labor costs, since it sources labor locally and apparently it has “higher consistency and safety in product quality, which enables us to compete favorably with local competitors”. But given the greater resources of at least some of its competitors and the constantly evolving dynamics of the industry, competition is surely a risk factor to consider.

    SMMYY is a subsidiary of the Sumitomo Group. SMMYY is a major smelter and refiner of copper, nickel and gold in Japan, and has a 27.5% stake in the Ambatovy Nickel Project in Madagascar, along with Sherritt International and Korea Resources Corp. Feedstock for the refinery is nickel cobalt mixed sulphide from its Taganito and Coral Bay mines in the Philippines (noting the Philippines is a risky supply source at this time). Sumitomo supply Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) who supply Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA); however, this can change. Generally, I like the stock; however, at this time, valuation looks full, trading on a 2017 PE of 32.8, and 2018 PE of 14.8. Good to buy after a pullback if that occurs.
