Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Danny Vena]

    Video streaming company iQiyi  (NASDAQ:IQ) recently spun off from Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), and the market is taking notice. In this week’s episode of Industry Focus: Tech, host Dylan Lewis and Motley Fool contributor Danny Vena explain why iQiyi is so exciting and what investors should know about the company before digging in.

    Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU): Chinese tech and search engine company Baidu released its Little Fish smart speaker in early 2017. This January, Baidu released three new smart speakers, including a smaller version of the original Little Fish; a combined smart lamp and smart speaker called the Sengled; and the popIn Aladdin, which is a speaker, a light, and a projector. Although Alibaba added “sight” (a feature that enables the device to use a smartphone’s camera for certain functions) to its smart speaker in March, it doesn’t have a lamp or projector feature yet.

    When iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ) had its market debut in March after being spun off from Chinese search-engine giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), the stock stumbled out of the gate. It lost roughly 14% of its value on the first day of trading and briefly derailed some of the excitement surrounding the new streaming and multimedia offshoot. That didn’t last too long, however.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Vena: Right. iQiyi, when they started developing this original content, keep in mind that they were still owned by Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), which spun them off earlier this year. Now, Baidu has a lot of similarities to Google. They are the major search engine in China. They have a lot of data. They’ve been at the forefront of artificial intelligence. So, one of the things that iQiyi said in their IPO filing with the SEC is that they view that data and their ability to analyze that data using artificial intelligence as one of their competitive advantages. So, they have used that to generate shows that Chinese consumers just really love.

    Wall Street had another good session on Tuesday, with favorable earnings reports from some of the nation’s most successful technology companies helping to lift major benchmarks by 1% or more. Investors haven’t forgotten about some of the potential pitfalls that could derail the recovery, including both geopolitical and macroeconomic concerns. Yet traders seem to want to see the market test its all-time highs before deciding whether the correction could turn into a full-fledged bear market reversal. Some individual stocks, however, missed out on the good times. GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Apellis Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:APLS), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Three minutes of frantic trading in Treasuries futures just offered a stark reminder of the danger of betting against the world’s safest asset.

What was shaping up as a second straight day of losses in Treasuries on Thursday, with 10-year yields threatening to hit the key psychological level of 3 percent, turned around in a hurry as turmoil in emerging markets spooked global investors.

Traders pointed to Brazilian officials’ unsuccessful efforts to stem the free-fall in their currency as the trigger for the wave of Treasuries buying. But the rush was magnified because investors were caught offside — there had been a dramatic increase in short bets against U.S. government debt in the past week.

The abruptness of the move, which drove yields on benchmark 10-year notes plunging as much as 9 basis points to 2.88 percent, was apparent in the futures market: From 1:33 p.m. New York time to 1:36 p.m., more than 100,000 contracts on 10-year futures changed hands. To put that in context, that’s more than the 80,000 that traded over a similar span at the time of Friday’s release of U.S. labor data.

    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TWTR, CS, GE
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) is under pressure to fire its auditor of 109 years, KPMG (for perspective, GE began its longtime relationship with KPMG a year after the first Model-T was built). Shareholder rights firms Glass-Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services are spearheading the change and will push for adjustments during the firm’s annual shareholder meeting. The move comes after a calamitous year for GE, which saw the company become the worst-performing Dow component of 2017.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

May 1, 2017: Markets opened higher on Monday following an agreement that keeps the federal government solvent through the end of September. Blue chips have shown very little gain today, with telecom and utilities performing worst and tech and financials performing best. WTI crude oil for June delivery settled at $48.84 a barrel, down 1% on the day. June gold also dropped 1% for the day to settle at $1,255.50. Equities were headed for a narrowly higher close shortly before the bell as the DJIA traded up 0.06% for the day, the S&P 500 traded up 0.35%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded up 0.84%.

The DJIA traded very near the break-even line just minutes before the closing bell. The closing tally could finish with either a small gain or a small loss for any or all of the indexes.

The DJIA stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close Monday was Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: APPL) which traded up 2.38% at $147.07. The stock’s 52-week range is $89.47 to $147.09, a new high posted this afternoon. Volume was about equal to the daily average of around 24.8 million shares. The tech giant is set to post quarterly earnings after markets close on Tuesday, and analysts and investors are expecting good news.

Best Casino Stocks To Watch For 2018

Wanted: $6 million in missing gaming chips. Last seen: The lavish Wynn casino in Macau.

Police are hunting for millions of dollars in casino chips after they were stolen — allegedly by one of Wynn’s own croupiers — raising security concerns in the world’s biggest gambling hub.

The heist happened Tuesday at the Wynn Macau (WYNMF), one of the marquee destinations in a Chinese territory whose gambling revenues dwarf those of Las Vegas.

Macau police told CNNMoney that a dealer at the Wynn Macau and a potential accomplice have been arrested and that they are not currently looking for other suspects. They declined to identify the two people by name.

Police didn’t say how the stolen chips were taken past casino security. But local media reported that the suspect allegedly stuffed them into a bag in a VIP room and simply carried them out.

To turn the chips into hard cash, the thieves or their associates would eventually need to bring them back into the casino.

Shares of social media icon Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) are under pressure Thursday, reversing early gains to move into negative territory on heavy volume in the twelfth hour. The losses are modest at this point, with TWTR stock down about 1.1% as of this writing.

What’s dangerous about the situation, however, is that the move is testing the March 22 intraday low, which continues a downtrend pattern that’s been in place since December. This sets up a critical test of support from the May/June lows of 2016.

If the bulls cannot or will not step up right here, right now, we could be on the verge of a breakdown to a fresh post-IPO low for TWTR stock as the company continues to battle uneven leadership, tepid user growth metrics and an ongoing struggle to define and improve its user experience.

    Stock No. 5: That leads us to our “L” stock, and L is Live Nation (NYSE:LYV). This is the company that was formed by a merger of Live Nation, the concert venue and rock-star-promoting business that it is. So many musicians, today, of course, make most of their money on tours, since the sale of CDs, you might have noticed, has dropped off a cliff in recent years. Live Nation, then, bought a merger with Ticketmaster, so this is the company that sells you the tickets to come into its venues to watch the entertainment that it’s promoting. It’s a tremendously powerful model.
