Hot High Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: SoftBank Group Corp. (SFTBY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    It is my opinion that the company will close the bond issuances, which is the final component of its capital raise efforts. I strongly believe that the company will close on the upper-end of $350 million in the bond issuance based on its ability to:

    Attract and close on an equity deal valued at nearly $100 million from Japan’s SoftBank (OTCPK:SFTBY). Execute a streamlining agreement with Orion Mine Finance LP valued at over $150 million. Engage with high-quality financial groups, including Clarkson Platou Securities and Pareto Securities as managers of the bond issuance. Sign multiple off-take agreements including NorthVolt, FMC (FMC) SoftBank and Johnson Matthey Battery Materials.

Top ARM chipmakers like Qualcomm, riding high on ARM’s reputation for power-efficient designs in mobile devices, easily marginalized Intel’s chips.

Wow. I can't believe the sea change that has happened in gold in the last two weeks…   Two weeks ago, my headline here in DailyWealth was "Gold Isn't a Buy Yet… But it's Close."   That day, I said:  

Personally, I look forward to getting back into gold and gold stocks with my own money… They have fallen, a lot, and I believe we're at the early stages of a major long-term bull market in gold stocks.   But even after such a fall, and even with my long-term outlook, I personally can't get excited just yet…   Unfortunately, gold is still loved… And it's still in a downtrend.

    Strong balance sheets and consistent demand for discrete processors and GPUs across the board has kept the likes of Micron and semi-behemoth NVIDIA trucking past the rest of the market, both posting top and bottom line revenue results for seven consecutive quarters. Other companies like Intel and Qualcomm, whose processor sales rely mainly on the sales figures of PCs and devices they’re included in, have also surged ahead as market leaders. Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) posted record annual revenue over the course of  2017 and both Intel and Qualcomm remain leading candidates in the M&A game despite the block of latter’s deal with Broadcom Ltd. (NASDAQ: AVGO).

Top Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

If you’re able to buy shares of a smallgrowth stock — say, a company with a market capitalization of less than $20 billion — before the rest of the market catches on to the story, it can be a life-changing investment.

Consider, for instance, the 1997 investment that Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner made in — at the time — atiny company calledAmazon. With a split-adjusted purchase price of just $3.19, a simple $10,000 investment back then is now worth $4.5 million.

But what is a growth stock? There’s no hard-and-fast definition. Perhaps it’sbest to define this type of investing in the context of a few other types of investing.

Growth stocks:Stocks you buy because you believe the stock’s price could increase substantially — usually an uncapped amount with enormous upside potential. Revenue often increases dramatically. This tends to be a high-risk/high-reward type of investing. Income stocks: Stocks you buy because you want to receive regular dividends. Revenue growth need not be much higher than inflation. These companies tend to be larger and more stable and offer a lower-risk/lower-reward profile. Value stocks: Stocks you buy because — like growth stocks — you believe the stock’s price will go up. Unlike growth stocks, however, this is because you believe the stock to be currently undervalued.
