With consumer-technology icon Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) likely announcing its content-streaming service on March 25, most industry-watchers have the same question: How will this news affect streaming leader Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX)? It's not an inconsequential inquiry. As NFLX stock has gained more than 37% so far in 2019, a corrective pullback is more than possible.As is often the case, a technically overheated company is now facing a fundamental challenge. As I wrote earlier this week, Apple isn't streaming as a side-hustle. Instead, the tech firm has paid serious cash to recruit top entertainment industry executives.Add that to Apple's signing of Hollywood A-listers like Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon to headline its original programming. If that wasn't enough, Tim Cook and his team have also secured the services of renowned directors Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. So, at first glance, this spells trouble for NFLX stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHowever, I wouldn't panic if you're a NFLX stock holder. While Netflix stock has acted pensive in recent weeks, it's more likely a reaction to broader market weaknesses. Over the long run, I don't see AAPL denting the streaming giant's domain. Here are three reasons why. Netflix Enjoys a Possibly Insurmountable LeadI'm going to start off with the low-hanging fruit. But just because this is an obvious point doesn't make it any less valid: what was Apple waiting for?When the company launched the iPhone a decade ago, the product upended all competitors. BlackBerry (NYSE:BB) phones, colloquially called "CrackBerries," were quickly relegated to the sidelines. So, too, did quirky offerings from Nokia (NYSE:NOK). * 7 Top Stocks to Buy From Goldman Sachs' Secret Portfolio Later, Apple released products like the iPad just for fun. While their follow-on products didn't achieve iPhone-level fandom, they certainly facilitated the streaming revolution. Essentially, Apple owned the content platform; they just needed to take the next step and move into content creation.But they didn't and that has allowed Netflix an uncontested road to streaming success. During this time, the company experimented on both the entertainment industry's front and back-end. Based on their successes at the Emmy awards and in winning rave reviews, Netflix found its groove. Naturally, this boosts confidence in NFLX stock.And it's not just about this possibly insurmountable lead. Instead, Apple must prove it can generate momentum with its content, not just throw money at their latest venture. Coming in so late to the game, I have my doubts. People Actually Want to Watch NFLXThis is another obvious point, but it's worth mentioning: To survive as a content creator, you must first create compelling content. What separates NFLX stock from the competition is that they excel in this department.But this argument becomes more critical when you bring Apple into the discussion. While other organizations will gladly ruffle some feathers to deliver groundbreaking programs and films, AAPL has a decidedly different mindset. From the get-go, management will steer its original content away from vulgar, violent or sexual content.In other words, they're not going to show anything interesting on their service. Okay, I'm being facetious but only a little bit. Check out Forbes' top-20 list of streamed TV shows, where only one entry isn't on Netflix. It's chock-full of gritty programming or controversial topics, like the top-rated show 13 Reasons Why, which addresses teenage suicide.Is that content suitable for an Apple store? I don't think so. * 15 Stocks Sitting on Huge Piles of Cash However, it's perfect for Apple's rivals, if only because the tech giant won't compete in that manner. Because of this self-imposed creative limitation, I don't see AAPL gaining much traction. Therefore, I wouldn't worry about Netflix stock. NFLX Stock Isn't Demographically ChallengedFinally, I'll stray from my Captain Obvious routine and provide an underappreciated argument: NFLX stock has performed well in part because the underlying company casts a wide, demographic net.With streaming TV, content providers have an opportunity to highlight underprivileged or overlooked minority communities. Since Netflix seeks to reach and eventually dominate the international arena, it must facilitate diversity.But with Apple recruiting well-known and established Hollywood folks, their strategy seems anachronistic. Bluntly speaking, streaming companies have gravitated towards dynamic, eclectic programming. Partnering with profoundly respected, but nevertheless over-the-hill people like Spielberg doesn't quite jibe.Just look at the demo for online streaming. According to the Pew Research Center, roughly 60% of young millennials primarily watch streamed content. To attract this prime audience, you have to speak their language.But Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon? They represented the magic formula, circa 1999. Chalk that up to Apple's inexperience, or why I'm not overly concerned about Netflix stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

BlackBerry (BB) provides one of the most secure mobile enterprise solutions in the market through a broad portfolio of products and services. Growth in its cybersecurity business is a huge positive.

I've been bullish on Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) for some time. One of the biggest reasons is that the company has an assortment of assets that are dominant in their categories. Consider that the main Google property, YouTube, Gmail, Maps, Chrome, Android and Play all have over 1 billion users. Plus Google stock still looks like a perennial winner.Source: Shutterstock Furthermore, the company continues to invest heavily in new technologies, such as AI (Artificial Intelligence), AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality) and IoT (the Internet-of-Things). The result has been the development of standout products like Google Assistant and Google Home. * The 10 Best Stocks to Buy for the Bull Market's Anniversary And there's something else about GOOGL stock: It has a reasonable valuation, in terms of the growth rate. Consider that the forward-price-earnings multiple is about 20X.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut of course, the history of the tech market shows that it is extremely difficult to maintain a lead. Just look at the implosions of companies like Nokia (NYSE:NOK) and BlackBerry (NYSE:BB).Now this is not to imply that GOOGL stock is in grave danger. It's not.But then again, it's always important to consider the risks - and there are certainly a few that are problematic and could be long-term issues. So then, let's take a look at those for Google stock: Google Stock: Escalating CostsOutside of the search business, GOOGL has been aggressively ramping up costs. The result is a drop-off in margins, going from 24% to 21% on a year-over-year basis.This should be no surprise as engineering talent continues to get more expensive. Note that in the latest quarter, GOOGL shelled out a hefty $6 billion in R&D, up about 40%.But there are other areas where costs have been heating up. One is premium content for YouTube. Let's face it, Netflix's (NASDAQ:NFLX) huge spending has had a big impact. Over time, we'll probably see further pressures from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) as well. Google Stock: ComplexityGOOGL is definitely a complex organization. Keep in mind that the company has nearly 99,000 employees.So yes, managing this organization is no easy feat. If anything, when a tech company becomes a conglomerate, the valuation of the stock can easily get muted as strong assets get diluted by the weak ones. We saw this happen to Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) back in the early 2000s. The result was a prolonged period of underperformance for the stock price.As for GOOGL, it's far-flung structure may mean that YouTube and Waymo are not being valued properly. But there could be another big issue: bureaucracy. In other words, it could be getting more difficult to move quickly. This may explain weakness in core businesses like Google Cloud. Google Stock: Ad BusinessDespite efforts at diversification, about 83% of the revenues for GOOGL come from its ad business. Granted, this has not been much of a problem. It certainly helps that the company has been agile when adapting to changes in the market.A notable case of this was the transition to mobile, which involved the development of the Android platform (it powers 86% of the world's smartphones). Keep in mind that GOOGL still processes 93% of global search volumes.But it could get more difficult for the ad business in the coming years. Part of this is from pressure of social media operators like Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Snap (NYSE:SNAP), Pinterest and so on.Although, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) could pose the biggest danger. The company definitely has a pretty good track record when it comes to disrupting markets.Regarding its ad business, it is running on all cylinders. According to research from eMarketer, AMZN is expected to eat into the market share for GOOGL in 2019. The forecasts calls for AMZN to get nearly 9% of the U.S. ad market, up from 6.8% in 2018.The company has some key advantages. For example, AMZN has a massive distribution footprint, which includes devices. But the core ecommerce platform is ideal for advertising since there is a tight relationship between searching and purchasing -- which should allow for much higher ROI on spending.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.

Since we acquired our position about six years ago, much has changed at BlackBerry, all skillfully orchestrated by the only constant, John Chen, its CEO. Recently, he has acquired Cylance for $1.4 billion (leaving $800 million in cash in the holding company), which uses artificial intelligence to provide cybersecurity protection for desktops, servers, etc. It has 3,500 customers, including more than 20% of the Fortune 500.

BlackBerry has accused another social network of infringing on itsintellectual properties almost a year after suing Facebook over its messagingpatents
The lawsuit said Twitter wrongly sought to compensate for being a "relative latecomer" to mobile messaging by co-opting Blackberry's inventions for such services as the main Twitter application and Twitter Ads, infringing six of the company's patents. Twitter "succeeded in diverting consumers away from BlackBerry's products and services" and toward its own by misappropriating features that made BlackBerry "a critical and commercial success in the first place," the complaint said.
