As I explained on a recent podcast, I love to hit singles and doubles, and occasionally triples.&l;/p&g;

It takes a bit more courage to step outside of the batter&a;rsquo;s box and invest in a small cap REIT that has enhanced volatility.

Small caps have always been viewed as riskier bets than large caps, they often do not have the diverse revenue streams or stable cash flows that allow them to weather difficult economic environments (like their larger-cap counterparts).

Best Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

In the future, vehicles will be “shared, electric and automated,” according to a new study from the Institute of Transportation Studies at University of California, Davis. This trend gives an edge to companies currently employing one or more of these features. That list includes Google, Tesla, Uberand General Motors.

A number of experts were surveyed for a new study titled “3 Revolutions: Sharing, Electrification, and Automation.” The majority opinion from “forty policymakers, researchers, and representatives from government, nonprofit organizations and the technology” was that at present, the transportation industry has hit a period of unprecedented innovation.

The primary points of the survey:

Seventy percent of survey participants think fully driverless vehicles will account for more than 20 percent of vehicles sold by 2040. Eighty-eight percent think commercially offered shared rides will make up more than five percent of all U.S. passenger miles by 2030, and 78 percent think commercially offered shared rides will account for more than 20 percent of U.S. passenger miles traveled by 2040. Seventy percent also think that by 2050, the majority of vehicles used commercially for ride and car sharing in the nation will be zero emissions vehicles, including battery, plug-in hybrid, and fuel-cell electric vehicles.

Experts believe that those companies early into one segment of the business or the otheror those that are large and well-funded have an advantage. The world two largest ride sharing services, Lyft and Uber, hold that spot in car sharing. Uber claims it has 40 million active monthly riders worldwide.

Best Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Sigma Designs, Inc.(SIGM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news. The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.

    The Justice suit to block AT&T Inc.’s (T) acquisition of Time Warner Inc. (TWX) can be attributed at least in part to politics, as Trump has made no secret of his disdain for CNN.

Top 10 Tech Stocks For 2018

Breakout Forecast Selections for Week 10:

Market conditions continue with extreme volatility. Readers are cautioned that negative conditions are still strong and my momentum gauge remains the same as the prior week 9 at a value of 35. Volatility in the market is at all time highs with this past week having 4 out of 5 days with greater than 1% moves in the S&P 500. In contrast to this time last year the market had gone 81 days without a single 1% daily move.

My momentum gauge is based on the size of the list of positive and negative screened momentum stocks. The negative momentum indicator has increased from 35 last week to 42 this week. The positive momentum indicator has remained the same from last week at 35. The all time low for positive momentum selections is 10 (during week 6) and all time high is 120 (last August).

Additional selections from last week’s separate technical articles continue to deliver strong double-digit returns: AGEN +29.88% and DRNA +26.52%

    In the last few years, Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) has been focusing on the esports market as a way to reduce its dependency on game sales by building a sizable revenue stream from advertising, ticket sales, merchandise, and sponsorships. Overwatch League (which launched in January of this year) is the most promising of its esports ventures to date, with management making the bet that it will deliver a large enough audience to attract big bucks from advertisers.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI)recently announced earnings results that edged past management’s targets. The video game publisher notched important first-quarter wins in core metrics such as engagement and profitability. However, due to the timing of its biggest releases, and plans to ramp up the esports and advertising businesses, investors won’t have a clear picture on Activision’s 2018 performance until later in the fiscal year than usual.

  • [By Trey Thoelcke]

    Activision Blizzard Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) is expected to release its most recent quarterly report Thursday afternoon. The consensus forecast calls for $0.35 in EPS on $1.32 billion in revenue. Shares closed at $65.79 on Friday. The consensus target price is $76.36, and shares have changed hands between $50.91 and $79.63 in the past year.

    Hill:We’ll stick with video for a minute or two longer. Now thatiQiyiis public –you’ve talked about this before, is this of interest to you? Is this a stock you’ve already bought, or it’s on the watch list? And for those who don’t know, iQiyi wasessentially spun out of Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU). So, the Google of China spins out the Netflix of China. And as you said before, it seems like, if nothing else, it’s a win for Baidu shareholders, because Baidu still has the ownership stake.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The company is controlled by China’s largest internet search firm, Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ: BIDU), which holds about 93% of the company’s voting power. Based on the IPO price, iQIYI has a market cap of around $13.67 billion, and Baidu will retain ownership of more than 80% of the class A common stock.

    In this segment of the Motley Fool Moneypodcast, host Chris Hill and senior Fool analysts Jason Moser, David Kretzmann, and Jeff Fischer put Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU) under the microscope. The Chinese search leader has a massive presence in the world’s most populous market, and with revenue up 31%, it’s apparent that it is putting its troubles with the government in Beijing in the rearview mirror. But the stock is still only trading for six times revenue. Time to give it a look?

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) recently held its annual meeting, and not surprisingly, CEO and Chairman Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger didn’t exactly have kind words to say about bitcoin (BTC-USD) and other cryptocurrencies.

However, in a Monday interview with CNBC, Microsoft co-founder and Berkshire board member Bill Gates had some negative words of his own for would-be cryptocurrency investors.

Image source: Getty Images.

Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger aren’t cryptocurrency fans

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett has been critical of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies several times in recent months. Buffett’s main problem with cryptocurrencies is that they aren’t productive assets. In other words, stocks can generate profits from their business, farms produce crops, etc. Bitcoin (BTC-USD) and other cryptocurrencies, for that matter, are therefore only valuable because of investor interest.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Southwestern Energy (SWN) slid to the bottom of the S&P 500 on Friday, on the heels of its fourth-quarter earnings.

    Southwestern dropped $1, or 12%, to $7.35, while the S&P 500 rose3.53 points, or 0.15%,to 2367.34.

    Southwestern said it earned 8 cents a share, a nickel below the 13 cents analysts were expecting. Revenue slid 0.4% year over year to $684 million, edging past the$683 millionconsensus.

    In addition, Southwestern saidestimated proved natural gas and oil reserves declinedby 15.5%, to approximately5,253 Bcfe at the end of 2016,compared to 6,215 Bcfeat the end of 2015.

    Raymond James’s John Freeman reiterated a Market Perform rating on the stock:

    he 2017 production guidance range of 890-910 Bcfe compares to RJ/Street at 892/893 Bcfe, respectively. Capex guidance of $1.175-1.275 billion was 18% above Street at $1.04 and 13% above RJ $1.08 billion. The production growth implies the company is taking the middle road of their previous growth scenario whereby $1.25 billion/yr of capex thru 2018 translates to an 8-12% CAGR. However, in 2017, the guidance range implies 2-4% growth y/y. Exit-to-exit, SWN is expecting 20% growth vs the Street at 14%.

    Southwestern shares are down more than 32% since the start of the year.

    Coherus Biosciences Inc (NASDAQ: CHRS) shares shot up 23 percent to $13.70 after the company announced plans to raise up to $150 million in a private placement.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Today,Coherus BioSciences (CHRS) lost a patent case with AbbVie (ABBV) that would have allowed for a generic version of Humira. Citigroup’s Andrew Baum and Peter Verdult have the details:

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    The Patent Trial and Appeal Boardjust announced that CHRSs IPR on the 166 Humira formulation patent was not instituted. We remind investors that Amgens IPR on the same 157 and 158 formulation patents were also not instituted. Any at risk launch on a formulation that potentially infringes 166, 157 or 158 would seem unlikely and carries a high risk thatAbbVie would attain a preliminary injunction. It is not clear whether either company could attempt launch with a formulation that does not infringe the patent estate. We note that Sandoz has uniquely not filed any IPR on any biosimilars. Sandoz has not announced the FDA has accepted their filing for their biosimilar adalimumab…We anticipate that the perceived historic relationship of the immunogenicity of Humira as it relates to dose stretching will form a key debate in the ongoing PTAB case…

    Following the decision of the PTAB not to institute CHRS IPR on the 166 Humira formulation patent, we continue to anticipate that first likely launch of biosimilar adalimumab (Humira) in the US will be delayed until 2020, in line with our published forecasts and biosimilar model. We anticipate the open IPR hearings for the 135 dosing patent on Humira (filed by Boehringer and Coherus) to begin in Feb 2017 with the ruling in May. We rateAbbVie a Buy. We continue to prefer BUY rated Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) among the US names.

    Shares of AbbVie have climbed 5.6% to $59.18 at 3:05 p.m. today, while Coherus BioSciences has tumbled 11% to $25.18,Bristol-Myers Squibb has gained 3% to $52.56, andEli Lilly has risen 1.7% to $73.70.

    J.M. Smucker(SJM) is falling Monday, after Morgan Stanley’sMatthew Grainger and his team cut their rating on the stock, citing pricing pressures from Wal-Mart (WMT) and growing competition from private-labels.

    Grainger slash Smucker to Underweight from Equal Weight, and shaved $6 off his price target, to $126. He also cites what he calls “sustained” challenges in both its coffee and pet food business, as well as“below-average strategic optionality.”

    At the same time, he also upgraded Pinnacle Foods (PF) to Overweight from Equal Weight, and raised his price target to $63 from $58, on its double-digit earnings growth and what he sees as superior execution.

    Nonetheless, he sees many of the packaged food companies in his coverage, from Smucker to Pinnacle, as subject to pressure from Wal-Mart and off-brand rivals. From the note:

    Walmart comprises ~22% of sales across our coverage, a figure that has increased in recent years even as the retailers total grocery sales have grown at an even faster 4% CAGR. With Food margins expected to expand meaningfully, we believe this only enhances Walmart’s negotiating leverage going forward. SJM, Dean Foods (DF), and General Mills (GIS) are most at risk in the current environment, in our view.

    Recent scanner data points to a positive inflection in private label trends (share up ~30 bps L12W) across a range of center-store categories, a dynamic we believe could intensify in an increasingly competitive retail grocery landscape. Our analysis of recent trends points to the most meaningful underperformance vs. private label at GIS, SJM, ConAgra (CAG), and Campbell Soup (CPB), while only PF has outperformed in recent weeks.

    Smucker is down 1.1% to $127.95 this morning, while Pinnacle is up 0.8% to %48.47.
