Top 10 High Tech Stocks For 2019

Cash is king in times of stress.

That’s how Daiwa SB Investments Ltd.’s Takeshi Yokouchi is playing the recent rout that has seen emerging-market assets erase their 2018 gains — selling positions and raising liquidity.

He’s reducing his overall allocation to emerging markets, offloading bonds and currencies from Turkey and Indonesia, the Tokyo-based senior fund manager said in an interview. Yokouchi, who runs a fund that invests in high-yielding securities, is also increasing his dollar holdings amid the prospect of further rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.

“I am becoming increasingly cautious on emerging markets because they have been under selling pressure due to their external vulnerability amid weakening risk sentiment,” said Yokouchi at Daiwa SB, which oversaw 6 trillion yen ($54 billion) as of the end of March. “I view this as a temporary correction, but we don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel just yet so this weak environment is likely to continue for a while.”

Top 10 High Tech Stocks For 2019: Agenus Inc.(AGEN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    Harnessing the power of the immune system to fight cancer is a big deal and Agenus Inc. (NASDAQ:AGEN) looks like a great way to follow the trend. This stock trades like a small-cap biotech, but a couple of candidates coming through its pipeline could help push annual revenue past the $1 billion mark. Plus, by this time next year, the company could have half a dozen or so new candidates in clinical trials.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finished lower on Friday, with triple-digit losses for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and modest declines of as much as half a percent for other major benchmarks.

Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and MBIA (NYSE:MBI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

J.P. Morgan is telling its clients the strange uncorrelated relative performances between the U.S. and international stocks will not last.

As a result, the firm predicts international stocks will outperform the domestic market the rest of the year.

“The recent divergence in the performance of US Equities vs. the rest of the world is unprecedented in history. For instance, if one looks at price momentum – it is positive for US stocks and negative for Europe and Emerging markets across all relevant lookback windows [one month, three months, six months and 12 months]. This has never happened before,” quantitative and derivative strategist Marko Kolanovic said in a note clients Tuesday.

We will compare the two businesses based on the strength of their institutional ownership, analyst recommendations, dividends, profitability, valuation, risk and earnings.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Shares of women’s accessory maker Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) jumped again in September on second-quarter 2018 profits that exceeded management’s guidance. The stock is now up 39% year to date. While profits are ultimately all that matters, Vera Bradley has been increasing its bottom line while actual sales continue to decline. That makes the fashion company a high-risk investment as long as that trend remains intact.

    Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) reached a new 52-week high and low during mid-day trading on Tuesday . The stock traded as low as $13.30 and last traded at $13.16, with a volume of 54803 shares traded. The stock had previously closed at $12.72.

    Wednesday was a mixed day on Wall Street, with most major benchmarks easing lower as market participants continued to seek clarity on the trade front. Until negotiations with key partners like Canada and China come to a conclusion, some investors remain nervous about the possible ramifications of a failure to get deals completed. Yet in the absence of any outright negative news, trade-related or otherwise, the market has resisted substantial declines, rebounding from temporary setbacks. Positive sentiment around some key individual stocks has helped to buoy enthusiasm generally. Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), MannKind (NASDAQ:MNKD), and Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

The Stars Group (NASDAQ:TSG) stock has performed extremely well over the past year with shares nearly doubling.
