Hot Tech Companies To Invest In 2014

Deutsche Bank (DB) was down 4.5% at recent check, after a disappointing second-quarter report.

This morning, Deutsche said it earned to €334 million ($443 million), o €0.32 per share, down from €656 million in the same quarter last year.

Revenue rose 2% to €8.22 billon from €8.02 billion.

Analysts were looking for the company to earn €0.82 a share on revenue of €8.39 billion.

Legal costs were the big drag in the quarter, as Deutsche is involved in investigations into the manipulation of interbank rates and the U.S. mortgage business, among other issues. The quarter included a €630 million charge for potential litigation and related costs, and Deutsche said it now has litigation reserves of €3 billion, up from €2.4 billion at the end of the first quarter.

CFO Stefan Krause told analysts that the bank has already hit its targeted leverage ratio of 3% under European regulations put into law in June, but too many moving parts make calculating the ratio under new proposals impossible. Analysts are estimating the bank’s new leverage ratio is 2.3%.

    Yesterday, small cap identity protection stock Lifelock Inc (NYSE: LOCK) surged 15.64% after reporting better-than-expected third quarter earnings thanks in part to playing on the security fears of consumers, meaning its probably time to take a look at it along with two other security stocks, I.D.

Hot Tech Companies To Invest In 2014: Ophthotech Corp (OPHT)

Ophthotech Corporation, incorporated on January 05, 2007, is a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of therapeutics to treat diseases of the eye. The Company’s advanced product candidate is Fovista, which the Company is developing for use in combination with anti-VEGF drugs that represent the current standard of care for the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD). Wet AMD is a serious disease of the central portion of the retina, known as the macula, which is responsible for detailed central vision and color perception. It is characterized by abnormal new blood vessel formation and growth, referred to as neovascularization, which results in blood vessel leakage, retinal distortion and scar formation. If untreated, the progressive retinal damage results in rapid, irreversible and severe vision loss. Wet AMD is the cause of blindness in patients over the age of 55 in the United States and the European Union.

The anti-V EGF market for the treatment of wet AMD consists predominantly of two drugs that are approved for marketing and primarily prescribed for the treatment of wet AMD, Lucentis and Eylea, and off-label use of the cancer therapy Avastin. The use of anti-VEGF drugs has significantly improved visual outcomes for patients with wet AMD who have been treated with these drugs as compared to untreated patients.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Jackson]

    Lexmark International Inc. (NYSE: LXK) is another name that has slowly, but surely, lost its cache as an industry leader. Once one of the premiere names in high-end printers, the company continues to lose market share. It also has very little to offer in terms of innovation and new and exciting products. The stock does pay shareholders a solid 2.9% dividend. The Merrill Lynch price target is $31, and the consensus price target is $31.75. That is far below Friday’s closing price of $41.12.

    What: Shares of Lexmark (NYSE: LXK  ) have popped today by greater than 17% following the company’s first-quarter earnings release.

    So what: Revenue in the quarter came in at the high end of guidance at $884 million, topping the consensus estimate of $873.6 million. The same is true for Lexmark’s non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.88, which was more than the $0.87 per share adjusted profit that investors were expecting. CEO Paul Rooke said Lexmark continues to transition from a hardware-centric model to a solutions-centric approach, which is underscored by the recent acquisitions of two software companies and the sale of the inkjet business.

CYTR shares have rallied more than 150% in just the past three days on the heels of an announcement that a cancer drug the biotech company is developing has shown wonderful Phase 2 results. And, WYY has advanced 93% over the past month or so, thanks to Q3’s earnings announcement, though the trading public – and then the media – certainly took the ball and ran with it.

    What: Shares of Support.com (NASDAQ: SPRT  ) plunged 26% during intraday trading Thursday after the company beat expectations with its third-quarter results, but outlined disappointing support program changes which will negatively affect its business at Comcast in 2014.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Support.com (SPRT) is a provider of online care for the digital home and small business. This stock closed up 2.7% to $5.89 in Tuesday’s trading session.

    Tuesday’s Range: $5.67-$5.92

    52-Week Range: $3.67-$6.28

    Thursday’s Volume: 304,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 377,189

    From a technical perspective, SPRT spiked higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $5.51 with decent upside volume. This move also pushed shares of SPRT into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $5.80. Shares of SPRT have been uptrending for the last month, with the stock moving higher from its low of $5.01 to its intraday high of $5.92. During that uptrend, shares of SPRT have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SPRT as long as it’s trending above its 50-day at $5.51 or above more near-term support at $5.43 and then once it sustains a move or close above Tuesday’s high of $5.92 to its 52-week high at $6.28 with volume that hits near or above 377,189 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SPRT will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory above $6.28, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $7 to $8.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Aristotle Munarriz]

    Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg via Getty Images “Candy Crush Saga” fans know that it’s not always easy to find the right match, but that’s not stopping its developer King Digital Entertainment from hoping that it’s the right match for investors. The mobile game-maker’s IPO finally hits the market Wednesday, and it’s easy to see why there isn’t a lot of consensus as to where King’s stock will go after its Wall Street debut. Bears can point to Zynga (ZNGA), the game giant behind “FarmVille,” “Words with Friends” and “Draw Something” that went public with a market cap of $8.9 billion three years ago. It fell out of favor once its hottest games began fading in popularity, leaving Zynga with cascading revenue and bookings as its new releases failed to captivate players. If Zynga stumbled with so many hit franchises, what can investors expect out of King, which is really riding on the success of a single game that wasn’t even around two years ago? King’s Sticky-Sweet Success So Far Investors angling to get in on this week’s IPO will see things differently than the naysayers. Yes, King is a one-trick pony, but it’s a heck of a trick. The sticky success of “Candy Crush Saga” — a free-to-play game where players can pay up for extra moves and to expedite the opening of new levels — finds King generating a lot more money than Zynga did at its 2012 peak. King’s gross bookings skyrocketed from $181.6 million in 2012 to nearly $2 billion last year. Zynga never got that high. Its gross bookings topped out two years ago at $1.15 billion before plunging to $716 million last year. King’s also been consistently profitable since “Candy Crush Saga” was introduced 23 months ago. Zynga can’t say that. Bulls will also point out that even at the high end of its pricing range, King’s initial market cap will be less than Zynga at the time of its 2011 IPO. The sheer success of “Candy Crush Saga” can’t be ignored. It drew 93 million daily active players for the month of December, an

    Compared with some of its rivals, such as Zynga (ZNGA) and Activision (ATVI), King’s stock may be “fairly valued,” said Tim Keating, chief executive of Keating Capital, a fund that specializes in making pre-IPO investments but does not own a stake in King. Zynga is worth about $4 billion while Activision has a market value of around $15 billion.

  • [By Jasraman Grewal]

    King, the maker of Candy Crush Saga, recently filed for an IPO in the U.S. for $500 million. According to the latest news, each share will be priced at $24 and is expected to sell between $21-$24. News of the IPO did not excite analysts. There have also been comparisons with Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA  ) , a web gaming portal whose debut raised many expectations. Candy Crush Saga has 94 million daily users, and the hit game earns the company 78% of total revenue.
