    Big 5 banks had a tough time trading in volatile markets

    When the going gets tough on Wall Street, brokers can lose money too, just like their customers. There’s a scene in the classic 1983 movie “Trading Places,” in which the Duke brothers, played by Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche, explain to Eddie Murphy’s character Billy Ray Valentine that whether their clients make money or lose money, their brokerage Duke & Duke makes money.

    5 Artificial Intelligence Stocks to Consider

    Editor's Note: This article was previously published in November 2018. It has been updated to reflect changes in the market. I recently attended a meeting of startup founders who pitched their companies. Interestingly enough, many of them touted artificial intelligence. Yes, this technology has quickly become red hot. After all, the market opportunity is massive. Gartner estimates that spending will grow at an average compound annual rate of 18% to $383.5 billion by 2020. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Yet AI is not easy to develop. There needs to be access to huge amounts of data, so as to find patterns. What's more, AI requires top-notch data scientists. As should be no surprise, this kind of talent is in short supply nowadays. Because of all this, when it comes to finding artificial intelligence stocks, they are usually larger companies. * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality OK then, which names are positioned to benefit? Well, let's take a look at five that stand out: Source: Shutterstock ### Alphabet (GOOG) Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) CEO Sundar Pichai refers to the company as "AI first." And this is certainly not hype. AI has become pervasive across the product line, such as with Gmail, YouTube, Maps, Photos, Google Cloud and so on. The company has also developed its own assistant, which connects with more than 5,000 devices in the home. Google has been creating industry standards for AI as well, primarily through its own language called TensorFlow. Just some of the companies that use it include Uber, eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) and Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO). Something else: Google is a top player in autonomous vehicles. The company's Waymo unit could be worth as much as $175 billion, according to analysts at Morgan Stanley. Finally, the valuation of GOOG stock is at reasonable levels, with the forward price-to-earnings ratio is 23X, which is in-line with other mega tech operators like Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). This puts it at the top of the heap among artificial intelligence stocks. Source: Nvidia ### Nvidia (NVDA) Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is the pioneer of GPUs (Graphics Processing Units), which are chips that process large amounts of data cost-effectively. The technology was initially focused on the gaming market. But NVDA realized that GPUs were also ideal for AI. To this end, the company has leveraged these systems into areas like datacenters and autonomous vehicles. No doubt, it has been a very good move. Consider that NVDA has been on a strong growth ramp. In the latest quarter, revenues soared by 21% to $3.18 billion and earnings per share increased by 48% to $1.97. It's true that the valuation of NVDA stock is far from cheap, with the forward price-to-earnings ratio at 36X. But then again, a premium is to be expected for a company that is a leader in a massive industry. * 7 Dark Horse Stocks You Really Need to Look at for 2019 For example, Evercore ISI analyst C.J. Muse recently boosted the price target on NVDA stock to $400, which implies 41% upside. In his report, he noted that the company's technology is "becoming the standard AI platform." Source: Shutterstock ### IBM (IBM) AI is nothing new for IBM (NYSE:IBM). The company has been developing this type of technology for many years. For example, back in 1985, it developed its AI computer called Deep Blue. It would actually beat chess world champion Garry Kasparov in 1996. Then in 2011, IBM created Watson to take on the best players on the quiz show Jeopardy!. The computer won. Now, IBM has definitely had its troubles. But the investments in AI and other cutting-edge technologies have been making a difference. Note that during the trailing 12 months, IBM's Strategic Imperatives -- which include cloud computing, security, analytics, Big Data and mobile -- generated $39 billion, or about 48% of total revenues. This has helped improve the growth rate of the overall business. IBM stock also has an attractive dividend, which is at 5%. This is one of the highest in the tech industry. Oh, and the valuation is reasonable as well. Consider that the forward price-to-earnings ratio is only 11X. Source: Shutterstock ### Yext (YEXT) AI has been good to Yext (NYSE:YEXT). The reason: the company is a top data provider, with integrations of over 150 services from operators like Google, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), Microsoft, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY). Yext has also added context and intent to all this, which allows for more accurate real-time searches. On the latest earnings call, CEO Howard Lerman noted: "Today the world is moving to smart databases. AI powered services that do the thinking for you." * 10 High-Growth Stocks for the Return of the Bull Growth has been strong. In the latest quarter, revenues shot up by 33% to $58.7 million. The company has also been getting much traction with enterprise customers. Note that the quarter saw nearly 80 new logos. Source: Simone.Brunozzi Via Flickr ### Baidu (BIDU) When it comes to the search business, Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) remains the king in China. Over the years, the company has transitioned to mobile, which has been critical. But BIDU has also invested heavily in becoming an artificial intelligence stock. This has helped with personalizing the search experience as well as improving the impact of online ads. But AI has done more than just bolster BIDU's own platform. The company has created several platforms for third parties. One is DuerOS, which has an installed base of 100 million devices and processes over 400 million queries a month. Then there is Apollo. It is an AI system for autonomous vehicles. Recently, BIDU used this with King Long Motors to launch the first fully self-driving L4 minibus. The AI efforts have been paying off. In the latest quarter, revenues jumped by 27% to $4.1 billion and the adjusted EBITDA came to $988 million -- or about 24% of total revenues. Yes, BIDU has a highly scalable business model. BIDU stock has taken a hit over the past year, down 32%. Keep in mind that Chinese stocks have been in the bear phase and that there are concerns about the U.S. trade tensions. But for investors looking for a play on AI in China, BIDU stock does look attractive at these levels.

    5 Must-See Stock Charts for Friday: MS, GE, SQ, BA

    Rumors over a lifting of the tariffs sparked a temporary intraday rally for the stock market -- not that a number of stocks needed anymore reason to climb on Thursday. Let's get a look at some must-see stock charts to see what's in focus for Friday. ### Top Must-See Stock Charts #1: Boeing Boeing (NYSE:BA) got an instant lift on the tariff news, although shares have been trading pretty well as of late anyway. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks to Buy as the Dollar Weakens After consolidating near $350 for about a week, shares are powering through downtrend resistance (blue line) on Thursday. The move has been swift and enjoyable for bulls, who are now looking for a rally up to $370. Should BA fizzle before it gets there, it would be encouraging to see it stay north of this prior downtrend line. Over the 100-day and 200-day would also be encouraging. Otherwise, BA may need to reset. ### Top Must-See Stock Charts #2: Morgan Stanley Unlike some of the other banks -- like Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) -- Morgan Stanley's (NYSE:MS) earnings results weren't that impressive. However, its reaction isn't all that bad. While downtrend resistance (blue line) is still firmly in control of MS, the 50-day moving average is holding up. A close over $43.10 would be another bullish development for the stock. Over the 50-day and longs can stick with MS, however, other bank stocks look more attractive at this point. ### Top Must-See Stock Charts #3: iQiyi Obviously everyone's eyes are on Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which is up more than 50% over the past few weeks and just raised its prices ahead of Thursday afternoon earnings report. Anticipation for its earnings is giving a boost to Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) and iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ), the latter of which is known as "the Netflix of China." IQ stock has been trading better, but with Netflix reporting earnings after the bell, it will likely be a large driver for IQ in the short term. Currently, the stock is resting just below tough downtrend resistance and the 50-day moving average. If IQ can push higher, it could cause a flurry of buying once over resistance. That may spark a move up to $22. ### Top Must-See Stock Charts #4: General Electric Shares of General Electric (NYSE:GE) continue to grind higher and InvestorPlace readers have been following the levels as we go. GE stock pushed up to $9 earlier this month and was quickly rejected back down to the 50-day. From there, GE climbed back to $9 and consolidated just below that mark for more than a week. On Thursday, it broke over this level. Now I want to see a close above $9 and a continued push higher. If it can do that, the next level to watch is $10 and/or the 100-day moving average. ### Top Must-See Stock Charts #5: Square Another high flyer on Thursday, Square (NYSE:SQ) stock jumped 4.5% on Thursday. This is a continued move after SQ stock broke out over downtrend resistance (blue line) earlier this month. The stock rallied up and pushed through the 50-day moving average, but coiled just below the 100-day. The theme here? Stocks have been rallying up and consolidating for about a week before pushing through key levels again. Will it lead to a false breakout now that the major indices have recouped about half of their losses, or will they lead to further gains? We don't know yet, which is why we outline the levels! * 10 Growth Stocks With the Future Written All Over Them For SQ stock, let's see if shares can push up to the 200-day moving average. If they fizzle out beforehand, look to see that it stays over $64. Below and it may revisit the backside of prior downtrend resistance. Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
