Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2021

Just over 27% of Adobe’s valuation can be attributed to its marketing cloud initiative. According to Adobe’s SEC filings, it generated over $1.63 billion revenues from its marketing cloud initiatives in 2016. (Fiscal year ends with November.) The primary reason for this growth is the comprehensive marketing offering includes a complete set of analytics, social media optimization, consumer targeting, web experience management and cross-channel campaign management solutions. In addition to traditional capabilities in digital marketing, the company also has rolled out digital marketing and advertising services for Over The Top video TV content through its Primetime services. In the most recent move, it acquired TubeMogul, a programmatic ad tech company that can run campaigns across digital screens, television and out-of-home channels. Considering the rapid adoption of Adobe’s marketing cloud, we believe that Adobe’s revenue could increase significantly. On the other hand, competition from player’s such as SAP, IBM, Oracle and Salesforce.com is intensifying and can eat into Adobe’s leadership. In this note, we explore the upside to Adobe’s stock price due to Adobe marketing. We also discuss the factors that can drag this division down.

    The stock price of Corning(NYSE:GLW) suffered last year as the glass maker made heavy investments in its manufacturing capacity to meet the rising demand for its products. Operating in a growing market and serving eager customers is always a good thing, but investors can sometimes scare easily, wary of companies that must spend now to earn more later. As it looks right now, though, the investments seem to be paying off.

    That was certainly the case with Student Transportation (NYSE: STB). My former High-Yield Investing holding was trading at $6.00 per share at the closing bell on February 27. The next morning, it opened near $7.50 following a surprise takeover offer from a privately held Canadian company — giving us a nice 25% gain overnight.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) was off nearly 1% after the entertainment giant fell short of profit expectations. The firm reported a sharp rise in programming costs to complement a big uptick in technology investment. The company reported earnings per share of $1.87, a figure that was $0.08 short of the Wall Street consensus. ESPN, the company’s largest network, reported a big jump in programming costs – tied heavily to broadcasting rights – and a decline in subscribers. The company still reported a 20% jump in studio revenue year over year. Oil prices were falling Wednesday over concerns about Chinese demand. The downturn comes as markets monitor the impact of renewed U.S. sanctions on Iran. The Trump administration enacted the first batch of sanctions Tuesday morning; however, these sanctions did not immediately impact the nation’s ability to export oil. Should the sanctions affect crude supplies, it is possible that speculators could push prices higher due to supply concerns. Finally, let’s take a look at the growing $10 billion legal cannabis market in North America. Not everyone needs to grow a plant to make money.

Hot Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

What happened

Shares of Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) gained 11.9% over the course of January, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. Why were investors piling into this top biotech stock last month?

Gilead’s shares perked up in response to the company’s rather upbeat presentation at this year’s J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, where interim CEO Gregg Alton suggested that the biotech might be able to return to growth in 2019.

So what

Before last month’s double-digit gains, Gilead’s stock had been stuck in a long-term downtrend, thanks to the company’s plummeting hepatitis C sales. However, the biotech seemed to be nearing an inflection point toward the tail end of 2018 because of a bevy of factors — including exceptionally strong sales for new HIV medicine Biktarvy, improving sales for anti-cancer cell therapy Yescarta, and a stabilizing hepatitis C drug market. And this overtly positive J.P. Morgan conference presentation appeared to indicate that Gilead’s comeback story was indeed taking shape.

People are not born with bad habits. If&a;nbsp;our parents have an unhealthy lifestyle, it is likely we will follow in those footsteps. Some unhealthy situations are very difficult to correct &a;ndash; once tobacco abuse, obesity, or alcohol abuse take hold, it takes a lot of fortitude to get on the path to good health. Should a person ever just give up and accept their unhealthy lifestyle?

As a physician, I grappled with getting people to take care of themselves and saw the debilitating medical outcomes when patients didn&a;rsquo;t follow through. As a financial planner, I see the financial disasters of poor health. Sadly, most people put their head in the sand and don&a;rsquo;t want to think about their increased risks of heart attacks, strokes, and cancer and plan accordingly for the potential financial devastation.

    Suncor Energy (TSE:SU) (NYSE:SU) had its price target upped by Raymond James from C$60.00 to C$61.00 in a research report report published on Tuesday.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Even though Canadian oil giant Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has been a cash-generating machine for its investors in recent quarters, the company continues to struggle with one of its premier assets: Syncrude. The oil-sands mining and upgrading facilities for this massive project in Alberta have been shut down or not running at full capacity several times over the past few years, and it is keeping Suncor from realizing its full potential.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    I don’t know if you have noticed, but oil prices have been on the rise lately, which has done miraculous things for the bottom lines at oil and gas companies. The same can be said for Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU), which was able to post a rather healthy earnings per share number considering one of its major oil sands facilities was shut down in the most recent quarter.

    Suncor Energy Inc. (SU) – “We expect modestly below-consensus results driven by
    downtime and the ramp costs at Fort Hills. We still see a robust second-half 2018 and 2019 free cash flow story and would recommend investors look through any near-term
    noise.”

    In early June, Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) put out a press release announcing that it was “set up for strong production for the remainder of the year.” Driving Suncor’s view was the fact that it finished all the major maintenance projects across its facilities and its recently completed expansion projects were exceeding expectations.

Best Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

What happened

Shares of Universal Display (NASDAQ:OLED) surged higher on Friday, following Thursday evening’s release of solid first-quarter results. As of 2:35 p.m. EDT, the stock had risen 13% above Thursday’s closing prices.

So what

In the first quarter, the researcher of phosphorous organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technologies saw sales sliding 22% lower year over year, to land at $43.6 million. On the bottom line, GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) earnings fell 41% to $0.13 per share. These results include a large impact from new accounting rules for long-term contracts and supplier agreements, known as ASC Topic 606. Running the first-quarter books under the old Topic 605 rules, sales would have increased 23% year over year to $68.2 million, and the bottom line would have shown earnings of $0.55 per diluted share.

It’s unclear whether analysts had been counting on Universal Display adopting Topic 606 rules for this report, but their consensus estimates for the first quarter called for earnings of $0.13 per share on sales near $52 million.

Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

One of the growth opportunities that chip giantIntel(NASDAQ:INTC) is pursuing is the rapidly expanding market for non-volatile memory products, which includes NAND flash (a type of computer memory commonly used for fast, efficient storage), as well as 3D XPoint, a unique technology that Intel helped to create for customers who want storage that’s even faster than NAND flash.

This business unit is called Intel’s non-volatile memory solutions group (NSG).

Let’s go over how this business performed in the first quarter of 2018 and put that into the context of Intel’s long-term prospects.

The $3 billion incentive package used to lure Foxconn to Wisconsin to build a giant factory was only the beginning.

Associated sweeteners have now grown to more than $4 billion — adding in the cost of local government incentives and various infrastructure projects, like roads and highways, sewer and power lines.

Foxconn is also being allowed to skip state environmental rules and oversight it would otherwise have had to follow.

Taiwan-based Foxconn is best known as the electronics manufacturer that builds things like iPhones at massive factories in China, where employees not only work but live.

The plan to build the flat screen plant in Wisconsin, announced in July, was hailed at the time by President Trump and Governor Scott Walker as a sign of a rebirth of American manufacturing, winning back jobs that had been going to China for years.

“This is a once-in-a-century opportunity for our state and our country, and Wisconsin is ready,” said Walker at the time of the announcement. Construction on the facility is expected to break ground in 2018.

Fasten your seat belts. Dramatic swings in the oil market may soon become the norm.

After a prolonged period of low prices and relative calm, oil watchers are predicting a surge of volatility following President Trump’s decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran. Crude has spiked 19% this year, to prices unseen since late 2014.

Taking away Iranian oil after production cuts by Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Russia effectively means the margin for error in the market will become razor-thin.

In 2015 and 2016, there was so much supply that crude prices crashed. Now that buffer has been worn down so much that the market is extra-sensitive to geopolitical dangers and other shocks.

But that’s not all. Other powerful drivers are likely to jerk oil prices around, including the resurgent US dollar and a surge in production from Texas shale fields.

“Without a doubt, there are a variety of forces that could upset the balance and move us into a more volatile period,” said Ben Cook, portfolio manager at BP Capital Fund Advisors, an energy investment firm.

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)could outperform in that scenario.

It was a dark day on Wall Street — unless you happen to be Jeff Bezos.

Amazon (AMZN) stock climbed nearly 3% on Friday, making it one of the few winners on what proved to be the worst day for the Dow since June 2016.

The Dow closed down 666 points, or 2.5%, amid concerns about inflation and the bond market. The sell-off hit several tech giants. Alphabet, the parent company of Google (GOOGL), dropped 5% and Apple (AAPL) fell 4%, pushing it into correction territory.

But not the invincible Amazon. It was one of barely a dozen companies in the Nasdaq 100 that didn’t end Friday in the red. Amazon had the third highest percentage gain of the group, according to FactSet.

Amazon’s stock was buoyed by its stellar holiday quarter earnings results released on Thursday. The company reported a profit of nearly $2 billion, the largest in its history and the first time it topped $1 billion in a quarter.

Amazon’s business was helped by continued momentum for bets beyond traditional online shopping, including cloud computing services, advertising and Alexa, the personal assistant powering its growing line of household devices.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    The group agreed to sell its food business to McCormick & Company Inc. (MKC)  last week for $4.2 billion. Reckitt said it would use the sale proceeds to reduce debt, which grew by $21 billion through a pair of financing transactions in March led by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and HSBC in order to fund its $18 billion acquisition of infant nutrition group Mead Johnson (MJN) earlier this year.

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    On Tuesday, JP Morgan analysts upgraded children’s nutrition company Mead Johnson Nutrition (MJN), as they believe the company’s top line growth should be valued more highly than the possible cost headwinds and further Chinese regulations.

    The analysts upgraded MJN from “Neutral” to “Overweight” and see shares reaching $88. This price target suggests a 16% upside to the stock’s Monday closing price of $76.11.

    Mead Johnson Nutrition shares were up 85 cents, or 1.12%, during morning trading on Tuesday. The stock is up 16.71% year-to-date.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now: Terex Corporation(TEX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Third and a trigger for the change: China becomes an active bidder in the space. Chinas Zoomlion bid for Terex (TEX) ($3.3B) along with Haier/General Electric (GE) ($5.4B) and several ChemChina proposed deals in industrials changes the upside/downside skew, particularly on lower quality/more challenged names. The Terex bid does not appear to be one-off. Chinese outbound M&A announcements rose to record highs in 15; to $112B (up 57% from 2014) in total acquisitions. Industrials formed a large and rising portion, at ~12B completed. Thats roughly equal to the 3 prior years industrials deals combined, and is the highest on record. Energy and materials accounted for ~15% of 15 spend vs. ~83% in 2011. Even lower quality or more currently challenged machinery franchises have distribution which could be highly attractive to new entrants…

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Yesterday, Terex (TEX) announced that it would sell its ports business to Konecranes for $1.3 billion. Today, Baird’s Mircea Dobre and Joseph Grabowski upgraded Terex to Outperform from Neutral, arguing that the sale makes a takeover by China’s Zoomlion that much easier. They explain:

    Balint Porneczi/Bloomberg News

    The sale of MHPS to Konecranes is a positive catalyst on multiple fronts: shareholders got an attractive multiple for what historically has been a challenged business with further upside possible given 25% equity ownership in Konecranes, execution risk is diminished as new CEO can focus on operational improvement without the effort required to integrate the Terex and Konecranes businesses, and finally, the MHPS sale makes it easier for Zoomlion to acquire remaining Terex.

    While our upgrade is not reliant on Zoomlion acquiring Terex, the MHPS transaction could make a firm Zoomlion offer more likely.

    At the margin, a Zoomlion deal appears easier to get done: 1) the remaining businesses fit better with Zoomlions existing product portfolio of construction equipment, cranes, and various commercial and municipal equipment, 2) given the attractive terms of the MHPS sale, the funding hurdle required to acquire Terex is lowered, 3) many of the CFIUS issues center around national security concerns regarding the nations ports, no longer a concern given MHPS sale.

    Dobre and Grabowski also raised their price target on Terex to $30, up from $24. With Terex off 0.1% at $24.88 today, that leaves 21% upside in the stock to Baird’s target.

    In February, I wrote about Chinese demand for U.S. companies, including Terex.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Shares of Terex (TEX) had surged 32% as of the close of trading last Thursday–but dropped 14% the next day after China’s Zoomlion announced that it wouldn’t be pursuing a purchase of the U.S. crane maker after all. In the aftermath of the scuttled deal, Morgan Stanley’s Mili Pothiwala and Nigel Coe cut Terex to Equal Weight from Overweight:

    Balint Porneczi/Bloomberg News

    On Friday morning, Zoomlion announced it had terminated its bid for its proposed acquisition of Terex for $31/ share. This was a clear negative for Terex shares, which traded down ~15% on Friday to $20, given the absence of an event-driven catalyst (following the sale of MHPS to Konecranes, which we assume will be completed). However, we think that the stock’s current discount to the Machinery group on a P/E basis (20%+) is justified, given a still challenged underlying operating environment for the RemainCo, as well as historically uneven company execution – both of which return to the forefront of the investment debate following the removal of the M&A bull case.

    To which all we can say is: Oops.

    Shares of Terex have dropped 0.5% to $20.78

    Ever walk past a construction site? It’s hard not to be enthralled by all the heavy construction machinery moving things around. With the world’s developing economies still building at a relatively fast pace and developing economies, like the United States, in desperate need of upgrading their aging infrastructure, the companies behind that construction machinery could be just as exciting as a construction site in the years ahead. Which is why Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), and Terex Corporation (NYSE:TEX) are three of the top construction machinery stocks to look at right now.
