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. When the glass maker reported its 2018 fourth-quarter earnings last month, shares rocketed higher and are now up more than 10% year to date. A quick glance at the company’s quarter reveals what has investors so excited.

Best Tech Stocks To Own Right Now

One of the reasons Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) in-house chip-development efforts is such a strategic asset is that the company can custom tailor processors to serve the requirements of its products. Not only can this help Apple gain competitive advantages in the markets in which it currently participates, but it can bring those chops to bear as it tries to create and shape new product categories.

When Apple released its first-generation Apple Watch more than three years ago, the device was powered by a custom-designed chip that Apple dubbed the S1. With the launch of each new Apple Watch, the company also has delivered new chip technology, which has led to dramatic performance improvements.

With the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 4, which is powered by a chip known as the S4, Apple may have delivered the most interesting chip upgrade in the history of the product category. Let’s take a closer look.

    Investors in the Dow Jones today are hoping to build on yesterday’s 178-point gain after the Nasdaq closed at a new all-time high. Much of Monday’s market momentum was the result of a rally in tech stocks, with Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) nearing $1 trillion in market capitalization. Investors have largely shrugged off concerns about U.S. trade policy with its global trade partners and are instead focusing on last week’s strong jobs report in order to drive returns.

    Berkshire Hathaway owns shares of GM, and another popular value play the company has snapped up recently is Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). The iPhone-maker trades at a P/E value of 17.5, still significantly less than the S&P 500 at 24.6. Apple is the most profitable company in the world, generating profits of about $50 billion a year, and it’s sitting on an unmatched cash hoard of $285 billion, or $163 billion when subtracting its debt. Deducting the net cash balance gives the stock a P/E of just 14.2. In other words 19% of the company’s market value is just the net cash on the balance sheet, so you can subtract that to get the P/E of the business which gets you a P/E of 14.2.   Apple is so big and profitable that significant growth has become difficult, but the company still has growing revenue streams like its Services segment, which is made up of things like the App Stores, iTunes, and Apple Pay, and its brand strength — Interbrand ranks it as the most valuable brand in the world —  as well as its economic moat and cash flow all hold appeal to value investors.

Edelweiss’ research report on Shoppers Stop

Shoppers Stops (SSL) Q4FY18 revenue and EBITDA came in line. Key highlights: i) disappointing LTL salesdeclined 4.1% YoY on a base of -1.1%due to lower sale days & store renovations; ii) debt reduction on trackdown >INR4.5bn in past one year, leading to interest cost falling >55% YoY; and iii) private labels contribution fell to 8.5% led by inventory correction (pick up in this segment is crucial). Factoring store renovation coming to an end and complete benefits of Amazon tie up to be reaped only from H2FY19, we have pruned FY19E and FY20E EBITDA by 13.9% and 16.5%, respectively. SSLs strategy of exiting non-core businesses, exclusive deal with Amazon India and intention to be debt free by FY19 are key catalysts. Maintain BUY.

Outlook

We believe, SSL is in a sweet spot as: 1) tie up with Amazon will boost omni-channel (100% YoY growth rate expected over next 2-3 years); 2) interest cost has dipped as funds garnered from the Amazon deal & HyperCity sale were utilised to pare debt; and 3) hive off of non-core businesses will enable management focus on core departmental format. At CMP, stock is trading at 12.5x FY20E EV/EBITDA. We retain 15x FY20E EV/EBITDA multiple to arrive at TP of INR680 (earlier INR691). Maintain BUY/SO.

    Thursday ended in the red for most major benchmarks on Wall Street, with the Dow trading down by triple digits at times before climbing back toward the close. After having bounced back sharply in recent days, stocks seemed to lose upward momentum, and interest rate fears returned to the market. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond once again moved above the 2.9% mark, and shorter-term Treasurys had yields reach levels they haven’t seen in years. Yet even though the overall market was ready to take a break, some companies still enjoyed good news that lifted their shares. Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK), Snap-on (NYSE:SNA), and Rigel Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:RIGL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

Fitbit Inc. (NYSE:FIT) has been in a clear downward trajectory since it hit its all-time high of about $50 per share shortly after its IPO in 2015. In the latter half of 2016, the stock took a huge hit, and as we begin 2017, is trading just off of all-time lows. I believe this latest selloff was unwarranted and was substantially a function of tax loss harvesting. Moreover, FIT has been gaining market sharing in a growing wearables market and has been prudently entering into a number of partnerships which will likely propel revenue growth. As such, I believe that FIT is undervalued and is poised for substantial gains early in 2017.

    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.

    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.
    Twitter Inc. (NYSE TWTR) will lead a very busy day of earnings reports. The social media giant is expected to report EPS of $0.12 on top of $609.8 million in revenue.

And I’ll be just as happy if they fall further from here.
