(Bloomberg) — House lawmakers hope Tuesday to release a new Trump administration-backed version of the American Health Care Act bill they had to abandon last month in an embarrassing setback to their pledge to repeal Obamacare.

“We’re at that conceptual stage right now,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Tuesday morning. “We don’t have bill text or an agreement yet.” GOP leaders barely mentioned health care in the private conference meeting Tuesday morning and offered few details.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: NVIDIA Corporation(NVDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Virendra Singh Chauhan]

    NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) shares have been on a run after bouncing out of early March lows. NVDA stock closed the last trading session at a price of $107.69, up 10% from its March 6th close of $97.67 per share. Shares of the Santa Clara, California-basedGPU maker were off to an impressive start to 2017, gaining nearly 12% to hit a peak around $119 levels in early Feb. However, the stock went South from there after an impressive earnings beat failed to impress shareholders, who were worried that NVIDIA’s guidance wasn’t significantly higher than Wall Street expectations. The fall in NVDA stock gained momentum after a couple of analysts issued negative commentary on the stock. The result of the investor pessimism saw NVDA stock undergo a sizeable correction and slip below the critical $100 levels. However, with NVIDIA stock now trading above the critical 20-day, 50-day and 100-day moving averages, the time might just be ripe to buy into a promising way to play the A I revolution.

    Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.(NSDQ:AMD)had been by far the best performer in 2016 among all the 413 Russell 3000 tech stocks.

(NSDQ:OCLR)which was up 157.2% in 2016.

    In spite of its recent struggles, NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock remains a good long-term buy. The latest earnings could provide a better insight about NVIDIA’s near term future. With technicals falling in place, NVDA stock is well poised to resume its uptrend and may soon build some momentum going into its latest earnings. However, given the valuation concerns, we could see high volatility in the coming days.

    Shares of Santa Clara, California-based NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)may soon end their brief sojourn below $100 a share, heading higher in the near term. While rumors suggest that the leading GPU maker could be close to launching its much awaited GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, the stock also looks poised to rebound, based on a few popular technical indicators. NVDA stock is still down by more than 11% since announcing its stellar earnings numbersearlier this month. And buzz around an upcoming launch may be just the kind of trigger the stock needs to resume its march higher.

    The stock market is expensive going into 2017, with the S&P 500 trading for 26 times earnings compared to a historical average of around 15. With bargains few and far between, valuations of some top-notch companies have been pushed up to levels that introduce far more risk than investors seem to realize. Both NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) and Costco (NASDAQ:COST) are fantastic companies, but their stocks could burn investors in 2017.
