Best Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Twitter, Inc.(TWTR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) boss Jack Dorsey and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg fielded questions about foreign interference in U.S. elections, the proliferation of fake news, and assertions that their systems are being used in ways that favor Democratic ideas. And of course, they talked about what they think their companies should be doing to reduce the problems. But as with so many things involving social media, the parties in the conversation were probably talking past each other and not really listening.

    The number of Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) shares short increased to 53.50 million from the previous level of 40.60 million. Shares traded recently at $44.00, in a 52-week trading range of $15.67 to $47.79.

    It turns out smaller advertisers have played a big part in supporting Facebook’s continued growth. And that’s a huge advantage for Facebook over smaller rivals Snap (NYSE:SNAP) and Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), both of which still derive the majority of their ad revenue from big companies.

  • [By Adam Levy]

    Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) has shown double-digit daily active user growth on a percentage basis for seven straight quarters. What makes that more impressive is that Twitter has grown monthly active users just 2% since the first quarter of 2017, and a compound annual growth rate of just 3% over the last two years. Last quarter, Twitter saw a sequential decline in monthly active users, a repeat of the second quarter last year.

PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL) tells investors that it’s still interested in acquisitions, and will be for a while. Finally, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) goes into housecleaning mode, which is making Wall Street nervous.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

The recent market selloff could not have arrived at a worse time for Twitter (NYSE:TWTR). Prior to the market’s retreat, Twitter stock had already dropped from $45 to $30 on fears of slow user growth, increased regulation, and intensified competition for digital advertising dollars. Then the selloff hit, making things worse for Twitter stock. It broke below $30 and now trades around $27.50.

There is a strong, long-term bull thesis on Twitter stock at these levels. Assuming the company can maintain its share of the digital advertising market, continue to improve its monetization rates, continue to raise its margins, and stabilize its user base, TWTR stock looks like a steal under $30.

But those are big assumptions. Recent reports suggest that perhaps those assumptions are too ambitious. Plus,  tech stocks have not fared all that well lately.

All in all, I think investors should wait for more clarity on Twitter stock before buying the shares. A good case can be made that Twitter stock will rise in the future. But that case needs to become clearer before the market will believe it.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: Arista Networks, Inc.(ANET)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Beth McKenna]

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    If you believe in open-source cloud networking, then Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) is the obvious choice to provide you with the tools and services to gain access to the cloud. With hundreds of companies scurrying to keep up with their competitors by taking advantage of the latest technological innovations, Arista has plenty of opportunities to win business, but it also faces competition from companies that want to defend their own proprietary solutions. Consolidation in the cloud industry has also started to increase, and smart acquisitions can open doors to further growth.

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    Shares of Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) jumped 16.9% in August, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. That brings the cloud networking solutions provider’s one-year return to 53.8% through Friday, Sept. 7.

    This isn’t the end of Fortnite, and it’s still one of the most popular games in the world, but it may not be the threat competitors feared it could be. And with new games coming later this year, we could see powerhouses like Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI), Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA), and Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) take power back in the industry.
