Best Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Advertising Market And Potential Saturation

It’s difficult to say whether you have been a good stock picker in tech when the whole sector is in such a strong bullish trend. Many tech stocks have been overhyped and posted huge rallies even if they continued to report growing losses and no significant improvements in their fundamentals. Facebook (FB) is not one of them. In a market environment full of excitement and where many Wall Street darlings are trading at extreme valuations based on what those companies are supposed to earn in 2025, Facebook is one of the few specimens that still combines solid fundamentals and strong growth prospects with a reasonable valuation.

Many are speculating he will pursue a career in politics and potentially seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. Schultz had previously denied any speculation around a role in government; but his recent comments suggest that “public service” will be a part of his future plans. Gold prices dipped below $1,300 per ounce as markets continue to speculate on the likelihood of additional interest rate hikes in 2018. We believe this is solid buying opportunity for investors.

Top Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Wynn Resorts (WYNN) sunk to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after China said it would limit ATM withdrawals in Macau.

Shares of Wynn Resorts dropped 11% to $90.72 today, while the S&P 500 gained 0.2% to 2,246.19.

My colleague Dimitra DeFotis, who runs Barron’s Emerging Markets Daily, explains what happened:

The move is another in a series to tackle the flight of illicit Chinese cash via casinos. According to a South China Morning Post story, Macau’s monetary authority is halving the cash withdrawals allowed for holders of China UnionPay bank cards, effective Saturday. Billions of yuan reportedly have disappeared from the mainland, despite government currency restrictions on card purchases of gambling chips.

Wynn wasn’t the only Macau casino operator that took it on the chin today. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) tumbled 13% to $54.67, while Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL) plunged 14% to $16.87, and MGM Resorts International (MGM) dropped 4.3% to $28.65.

    A consortium of cannabis-related media professionals are conducting a Cannabis Media Survey. You can answer following this link.

  • [By ]

    Much of the focus of cannabis investors has been centered on Canada and California. This makes sense given that they are the two largest recreational (or soon to be) cannabis markets in the world. However, one publicly traded company with US-centric cannabis operations has taken a different approach. iAnthus Capital is listed in Canada on the CSE (OTCQB:ITHUF), but is headquartered in New York and incorporated in Delaware. Unlike other Canadian-listed cannabis companies, most of which are aiming to get in on the highly competitive green-rush in California and Canada, iAnthus has set its sights on becoming the dominant player on the U.S. East Coast.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    However, there have been some winning marijuana stocks at the halfway market through 2018. Shares of MariMed (NASDAQOTH:MRMD), iAnthus Capital Holdings (NASDAQOTH:ITHUF), and Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE:CGC) have soared. These three are the best marijuana stocks of 2018 so far for companies with current market caps of at least $200 million and that have a significant focus on the cannabis industry. 

  • [By Sean Williams]

    It’s not even just a Canadian problem. iAnthus Capital Holdings (NASDAQOTH:ITHUF), a vertically integrated cannabis dispensary with a focus on the U.S. market, recently closed on its purchase of MPX Bioceutical. This roughly $600 million deal increases the number of states iAnthus has access to from six to 11, and lifts its retail license count to 63. But take a gander at its most recent quarterly filing and you’ll see that CA$7.2 million in goodwill has not so magically transformed into CA$75.9 million in goodwill over a nine-month period, through Sept. 30, 2018. This represents 55% of the company’s total assets.

Praxair and Linde also agreed to sell additional assets to a consortium of Messer Group GmbH and CVC Capital Partners in order to obtain the U.S. antitrust approval.  The companies continue to work diligently to close the merger in second-half 2018. The stock has also outperformed its industry over the past year. However, its results will be hurt by weaker volumes and political uncertainties prevalent in Brazil and currency headwinds. Further, inflation and rising freight and logistics costs will hurt margins. Praxair’s stretched valuation is also a concern.”

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

If you’re looking to invest in renewable power stocks, you can always pick out pure plays that take advantage of the huge demand for clean energy — and with utility customers inking long-term power contracts as they switch from dirty carbon-based fuels, that might be a winning strategy. However, what if the growth story behind renewables doesn’t live up to today’s hype?

That uncertainty is why a diversified company like NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NEE), with utility and renewable power operations, might make more sense for conservative investors.

Focusing on renewables

There’s no question that a company like Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (NYSE:BEP) is a great direct play on renewable power. Roughly 80% of the company’s power is hydroelectric, with the rest made up largely of wind and solar. Moreover, it has exposure to Brazil (20% of generation) and Columbia (15%), in addition to the United States (60%). Much of the company’s growth has come from acquisitions, and long-term contracts back up the bulk of its revenues. It’s a perfectly fine renewable power investment.

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Last year, net income dropped from $146.4 million to $101.2 million, creating the sharp trend line seen above. The 2017 earnings dip can be traced to numerous factors, including higher interest expense, a reduction in tanker income, fewer ships in the fleet on charter to former parent Frontline Shipping (NYSE:FRO), and the bankruptcy filing of Seadrill Ltd. (NYSE:SDRL). Seadrill’s reorganization has impacted Ship Finance’s offshore revenue, as it has three out of four offshore drilling rigs on charter to affiliates of Seadrill.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.(CHKP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    For investors looking for a cybersecurity stock, I think a bigger security company like Palo Alto Networks or Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) would be a better option. At this juncture, I think FireEye’s high expenditures and sluggish revenue growth outweigh the potential benefits of buying the stock.

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) plies its trade in the fast-growing cybersecurity market — a market that’s expected to hit $96 billion in revenue this year, an increase of 8% over 2017, accordingto Gartner’s estimates. However, one look at the cybersecurity specialist’s recent performance indicates that it hasn’t been able to capitalize on that vast potential.

    Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.s (NASDAQ: CHKP) short interest decreased to 11.12 million shares from the previous reading of 11.56 million. Shares were trading at $108.37, in a 52-week range of $93.76 to $119.20.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Those numbers look dismal compared to the company’s cybersecurity peers. For example, Symantec’s bigger industry peer Check Point Software (NASDAQ:CHKP)is expected to post 2% sales growth and 5% earnings growth, yet its stock trades at just 17 times this year’s earnings.

    Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.s (NASDAQ: CHKP) short interest decreased to 8.24 million shares from the previous reading of 8.45 million. Shares were trading at $102.91, in a 52-week range of $95.03 to $119.20.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Shares of cybersecurity outfit Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) have been underperforming for the past year. As cyberattacks have gained notoriety, lots of competition has cropped up and taken a bite out of the company’s market share. Even with an attractive valuation, it may not be time yet for investors to double down on Check Point as the business gets serious about marketing new security tools.

On a year-over-year basis, shares of the mobile app game developer have advanced 120% versus 19% for the Russell 2000 small-cap index. Still, it would be a folly to call Glu Mobile’s public-market performance a success. Shares are down 45% since its 2007 IPO, while the index has increased 140%.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Although you wouldnt necessarily know it from the relative performance of other banks in its weight class, Farmers Capital (NASDAQ:FFKT) has taken some meaningful self-improvement steps over the last couple of years. These moves have put the company on a path toward better interest spreads, better efficiency ratios, and better growth prospects, all of which should support higher earnings and returns in the coming years.

The valuation argument isnt quite as clean as Id like it to be. The shares do look undervalued on the basis of near-term returns on equity and EPS/EPS growth, not to mention what the shares could fetch in a potential acquisition, but Id like to see a little more discount relative to my long-term earnings growth expectations. At worst, though, this looks like a decent buy that could reward investors if 2018 results come in a little stronger than expected.

A Small Player With A Valuable Niche

Farmers Capital is a small bank no matter how you look at it around $300 million in market cap, under $1.7 billion in assets, and just 34 branches in operation. But what Farmers Capital may lack in size, I believe it can compensate in value, as the bank has a respectable business in Kentuckys Golden Triangle (an area including Cincinnati, Lexington, and Louisville, with above-average population and income growth relative to the region).
