    Hot Investing Trends Updates: IoT, EV, Streaming Video and Marijuana Legalization

    If you weren't yet convinced that technology is changing everything about our lives, well …Source: Shutterstock We now have smart diapers.Pampers yesterday introduced its "connected care system." A sensor attached to diapers triggers a notification to parents through an app when junior's diaper is wet. (Just wet, at least for now.) It also tracks sleep.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIt won't actually change the diaper, but somebody is probably working on robots that will do that. (That ought to make a fortune.)Smart diapers are the latest in "wearables," which are part of the sweeping Internet of Things (IoT) trend.The Internet of Things is the label we've given to the coming world of connected machines and their support systems: Cars, homes, refrigerators, heating systems, lighting systems, medical devices, industrial machines, oil rigs, construction equipment, elevators, ships, etc.You name it, it's going to use advanced technology to monitor itself, monitor its surroundings, and communicate with humans and other machines via the internet.Given all the devices we use every day, it's no wonder Cisco says 500 billion devices will be connected to the Internet of Things by 2030. It's also no wonder spending on the IoT is forecasted to grow 55% and pass $1 trillion by 2022.All of this makes IoT one of the most valuable technologies -- and one of the most promising investment trends -- in the world. Check Out This Car!It's been nearly 15 years since I owned a vehicle.That surprises a lot of people, but I've always walked or taken the subway or a taxi. Now I use shareable scooters (and there are some potential investment opportunities there). I may finally get another car when I can purchase an autonomous vehicle (AV) that drives itself and can make money for me during the day shuttling other people around.I'd have to wait a little bit longer for an AV, and that wait got a little tougher with latest electric vehicle unveiled just this week. It looks amazing and has awesome power.It's the Lotus Eviya, which the company calls the "world's most powerful production car" and "the world's first all-electric British hypercar.""Electric hypercar." I like it.I've told you how the Tesla Model S is one of the greatest technological achievements of our age, so much so that it is used in electric car racing. It goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds. The Eviya matches that, and has a motor on each wheel that combined generate 493 horsepower. It can go as fast as 200 miles per hour.The key to electric vehicles -- especially the ones of the future -- is batteries. Lotus says the Eviya's battery pack can go from 0% to 80% in 18 minutes with new chargers just now coming out. Each charge should deliver about 250 miles.That's pretty good. Current battery technology has improved, but lithium-ion batteries have been around nearly 30 years now and are closing in on their limits. Solid state batteries will be the real transformative breakthrough.Just this week, research firm Global Market Insights predicted that the solid state battery market will surge over 1,000% from the end of last year to 2025.I've spent an enormous amount of time studying the battery industry. I can tell you this mega innovation isn't a matter of "if," it's a matter of "when." I believe the next big battery breakthrough will go down as one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.Insiders are already calling this potential new battery a "paradigm shift" in energy technology. Forbes calls it simply: "The battery that could change the world."This amazing device could change just about everything in your life -- from how you get around to how you communicate with others … even the way you think about the world.For early investors, this presents the kind of moneymaking opportunity that could turn a tiny initial stake into an absolute fortune. A Better Opportunity than NetflixIn a week when the S&P 500 index hit a new all-time high, one of the most well-known and widely held stocks got whacked.Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) fell 10% on Thursday -- losing $17 billion in value -- after the number of paying subscribers fell for the first time in eight years. The company lost 126,000 U.S. subscribers last quarter, which was way off Wall Street's expectation for a gain of 352,000. A price hike and the loss of some shows were among the reasons for the decline.The news from the rest of the world was better but still troubling. Netflix added 2.8 million subscribers internationally, which was 42% below analysts' estimates of 4.8 million.Is Netflix approaching the end of its amazing run? I wouldn't count it out yet, but it's too early to say for sure.That said, there are better opportunities in video streaming … in China.In fact, the leading content streaming company in China, iQIYI (NASDAQ:IQ), wants to be the Netflix of China. And why wouldn't it? China is the largest entertainment market in the world … and it's only growing as more citizens come online.One of the great things about iQIYI is that it doesn't have to compete with Netflix. China isn't particularly friendly to non-Chinese companies, especially content providers like Netflix. Actually, the two companies have a partnership.If iQIYI can become half of what Netflix has become, it is a seven-bagger from its first day of trading in March of last year. It has dipped back down near those prices amid the recent trade tensions. (You can get my latest advice on iQIYI with a risk-free membership to Investment Opportunities.) Another Step Toward LegalizationI told you a few months ago about perhaps the biggest signal yet that marijuana legalization in the U.S. is around the corner. The world's largest cannabis company, Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC), agreed to acquire U.S.-based Acreage Holdings (OTCMKTS:ACRGF) for $3.4 billion.The deal won't go through until marijuana is legal in the U.S. Still, Canopy would not have agreed to the deal if it knew the ending of this story was uncertain and years away. With some of the most connected people in the industry and the world involved with these companies, it was a flashing neon sign pointing toward legalization.Since then, Illinois has legalized marijuana, and this week Hawaii became the 26th state to "decriminalize" marijuana.I'm not a fan of decriminalization. It essentially says, "Marijuana isn't legal, but it's not really illegal either." It almost confuses things more than it clarifies. Still, big changes come in steps, and this is another clear step in the unstoppable trend toward legalization.I can tell you -- with 100% conviction -- that the opportunity to make a small fortune when America legalizes cannabis nationally is truly unprecedented.To make the most money possible, you'll need to "get in" before pot is legalized nationally. Once the federal government announces plans for nationwide legalization (which could potentially happen soon), America's small marijuana stocks could easily turn into big, expensive stocks like Walmart or Coca-Cola.Click here to learn more and see which stocks you should own today.We'll continue our work this week to make you money in the world's biggest investment themes.

    7 5G Stocks to Connect Your Portfolio To

    Over the past several months, I have discussed the importance of various 5G stocks to buy. Of course, such a notion is nothing new. This latest telecom innovation represents a paradigm shift within the industry. Major players and even government bodies have pushed for 5G integration. But to truly understand the phenomenon behind 5G stocks, we should look back in time to the 4G upgrade.It may seem like a lifetime ago. But nine years ago, the first 4G handset hit U.S. retail stores. Back then, we witnessed the same challenges that we must address today; namely, the lack of viable networks.However, the massive increase in data transmission speeds made efforts to overcome the challenges worthwhile. For instance, some early 4G networks download speeds of 100Mbps, substantially greater than an average 3G download speed of 2Mbps. That's the allure of 5G stocks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMoreover, think about the amazing technologies that either sprouted or were improved via 4G's introduction. For example, we take for granted today that we can hail a ride through Uber (NYSE:UBER) or Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT). But the viability of this platform was really only possible through the 4G network. The same can be said about mobile streaming on services such as Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). * 10 Stocks to Buy From This Superstar Fund In other words, 5G doesn't just offer an industry from which to pick stocks to buy. Instead, this technology enables other technologies to flourish. It's a force-multiplier, one that comes around only once every several years.With that, here are my seven picks for 5G stocks to buy: AT&T (T)Source: Shutterstock AT&T (NYSE:T) is a name that almost everyone is familiar with. However, it doesn't get much love as a candidate for stocks to buy. Even though T stock represents an iconic brand, the underlying company has unprecedented debt levels from expensive acquisitions.Even worse, those acquisitions apparently aren't gaining satisfactory traction. Of course, I'm referring to the $85 billion Time Warner acquisition. Initially, AT&T bought the company on hopes of original content strength and streaming revenue opportunities. However, fears of AT&T cannibalizing itself has put off some investors from T stock.But with all due respect, I think this perspective is shortsighted. I believe AT&T is one of the best 5G stocks to buy. With the coming network rollout, it's not just about technological prowess; instead, the rollout will require massive resources and wide-ranging telecom assets.Few names have the capacity to integrate 5G competently. Although it has some big issues, T stock is one of those players. Qualcomm (QCOM)Under almost any other circumstance, Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) would easily qualify as one of the best 5G stocks to buy. Thanks to its next-generation chips, Qualcomm has an early head start on this transformative telecom innovation. That right there is a good enough reason to seriously consider QCOM stock.However, legal troubles with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have cast a dark cloud over QCOM stock. For years, Apple alleges, Qualcomm illegally benefited from a double-dipping licensing scheme. Typically, semiconductor firms sell licenses of their core technologies. But Qualcomm charges royalties on top of innovations that are only loosely associated with the initial license.Granted, this is a nasty issue, and one that has made QCOM stock quite choppy over the past few years. Nevertheless, I believe the turbulence will give way to steady longer-term gains. I say this because Qualcomm is too critical for broader American interests. * 7 Defense Stocks to Buy to Fortify Your Portfolio As I have argued in the past, tech firms have ceased to exist in a vacuum. Instead, we're in a tech cold war for future digital dominance. Therefore, I believe the future is bright for QCOM stock because, well, it has to be. Micron (MU)Source: Shutterstock Speaking of vacuums, the 5G industry itself doesn't ply its trade in isolation. Instead, you see natural synergies and partnerships to help make the most of the tech in the shortest time possible. That's why on your shopping list of 5G stocks to buy, you shouldn't overlook Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) and MU stock.Earlier this year, Micron and Qualcomm announced a partnership to develop 5G-enabled autonomous driving platforms. This is a great example about the far-reaching impact of 5G technologies. With exponentially faster transmission speeds, autonomous vehicles can more quickly transition from concept to reality. Additionally, 5G speeds should make such AVs safer as they can react to dynamic conditions or dangers.Another plus for MU stock is the geopolitical environment. Micron of all companies on my list of stocks to buy recognizes the economic threat that is China. After suffering sometimes brazen acts of corporate espionage, Micron realizes that American tech firms haven't played on equal ground with the Asian juggernaut.But thanks to the no-nonsense Trump administration, MU stock has some executive support. Moving forward, I like that measure of confidence. Nvidia (NVDA)Source: Shutterstock If you're a hardcore gamer, you typically associate Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) with its gaming-centric graphics processors. However, the semiconductor firm has evolved into a comprehensive tech umbrella, providing solutions with data science, artificial intelligence, and deep learning. But what does this have to do with 5G stocks to buy?Simply, we're moving to a point now where no tech innovation occurs in isolation. Prior to 4G, most computerized solutions focused on data analytics and big data. But with 4G's data-transmission speed upgrade, engineers were able to realize multiple AI applications, such as AVs and other automated platforms. Since Nvidia leads in these innovations, NVDA stock provides attractive exposure. * 10 Tech Stocks That Are Still Worth Your Time (And Money) But with 5G, several industries are looking to take the next step in automation. In many cases, this means that companies are looking to replace human operators with AI-driven systems. Of course, such a notion is further out on the horizon. Still, I'd keep NVDA stock on my must-watch list, especially since shares are currently deflated relative to their all-time highs. Xilinx (XLNX)It's a theme that consistently runs throughout 5G stocks: no one player owns the entire 5G supply chain. Thus, part of the problem regarding the next-gen telecom rollout is the broader lack of equipment upgrades. Simply put, 5G requires multiple components, from the network down to the chips used to facilitate data transmissions.While it might not be a household name, 5G investors should check out Xilinx (NASDAQ:XLNX) and XLNX stock. For one thing, the company recently introduced a groundbreaking chipset that covers the entire sub-6 GHz spectrum. This is essentially the radio frequency that makes 5G possible.Second, several 5G players already use Xilinx chips. That number will surely rise as the rollout deepens. Furthermore, Xilinx will likely pick up additional clients, making XLNX stock an attractive proposition.Finally, Xilinx offers critical solutions in growing and lucrative markets such as AI and data centers. Thus, no matter what happens with 5G, XLNX stock will likely benefit from robust demand. Ericsson (ERIC)Without any historical context, 5G investors would probably peg Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) as one of their top stocks to buy. After all, Ericsson provides the communications equipment that makes the 5G rollout practically accessible. Therefore, ERIC stock is an easy buy.Of course, Ericsson's long-term price chart tells a different tale. During the tech bubble of the late 1990s to early 2000s, ERIC stock was a legitimate three-digit security. As we all know, the bursting of that bubble deflated virtually all tech players.Later, ERIC stock peaked around the $20 level before collapsing during the last major housing crisis and the Great Recession. With shares currently trading hands at under $10, I can understand the hesitation regarding holding the bag. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy for the Second Half of 2019 However, Ericsson does have a major geopolitical tailwind in the form of the U.S.-China trade war. With Huawei at least temporarily out of the picture, Ericsson has an opportunity to take advantage. This is one of the riskier propositions among 5G stocks to buy. But if you can stomach it, ERIC stock offers an intriguing opportunity. Semtech (SMTC)Analog and mixed-signal semiconductor supplier Semtech (NASDAQ:SMTC) offers natural exposure to 5G, along with other lucrative segments like the Internet of Things, data centers, and mobility. That said, SMTC stock has seen better days. Shares enjoyed a solid start to the year before negative earnings revisions for the year attracted volatility.However, I believe the nearer-term volatility in SMTC stock is just a blip on the radar. For one thing, Semtech features very stable financials. It has a relatively small debt load relative to its cash holdings. Moreover, Semtech has delivered consistently positive earnings, leading to an equally consistent free cash flow. Thus, the company can respond to fresh opportunities without worrying about the financial impact.Second, the 5G network is bound to grow in both scope and complexity. Not only are individual companies racing for an edge, so too are countries. Such dynamics provide a pathway to profitability for SMTC stock, making the nearer-term noise just that: noise.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto is long T stock.

    Netflix Stock Is Getting Back to Binge Worthy Levels

    Shares of Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) have sold off sharply following an earnings report that fell well short on subscriber growth. Netflix stock is down nearly 15% over the past three sessions and has given back most of the gains on the year. Certainly the paid streaming subscriptions were a major disappointment, but the actual earnings number beat expectations. The selling is getting overdone in NFLX stock. Time to be a buyer on further weakness.Source: Shutterstock Netflix reported earnings last Wednesday with EPS of 60 cents compared to expectations of 55 cents. Revenues were right in line at $4.92 billion versus estimates of $4.93 billion. This marks the fourth straight quarter of solid earnings beats from Netflix. Yet in that time frame, NFLX has actually dropped in price. The combination of earnings beats and lower stock price means NFLX stock has become comparatively more attractive on a valuation basis.Subscriber growth was weak, with only 2.7 million new additions. That's way below the 5 million anticipated. So while earnings were solid, the subscriber growth torpedoed Netflix stock. The company did reiterate, however, that it will add 7 million new subscribers in the third quarter. This is well above the previous guidance of 6.3 million additions and also an increase to the year-ago level of just over 6 million. So while growth has slowed, Netflix is definitely still growing.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips NFLX Stock by the Numbers Click to Enlarge Momentum stocks such as Netflix trade more on technicals than fundamentals -- and the technicals point to a pop in NFLX stock. Shares are now by far the most oversold they have been in the past year.The 14-day RSI is now at the lowest readings in the previous 12 months and well below the 25 level. MACD is also at an extreme while Bollinger Band Percent B is now negative. * 7 Defense Stocks to Buy to Fortify Your Portfolio Previous times that Netflix stock reached such pessimistic levels on those three metrics proved to be great short term buying opportunities in Netflix. A break back above the $320 resistance area could lead to NFLX stock filling in the post earnings gap around $340. The Warren Buffett adage to be greedy when others are fearful certainly applies here after the recent drubbing.Investors who missed out on adding NFLX stock to their portfolio should use the weakness to buy near current levels. Option traders may elect to sell out-of-the-money put spreads to position to be a buyer on a further leg down. Selling the Sep $280/$275 bull put spread should bring in 80 cents of premium with a 19% return on risk.

    AT&T Stock Won’t Be Saved by Friends, Time Warner Channels

    With AT&T (NYSE:T) set to report its earnings on Wednesday morning, the results are very unlikely to boost AT&T stock. Nor, for that matter, should anyone expect the shares to jump meaningfully before mid-2020, at the earliest, Until that time, with AT&T stock facing multiple problems and lacking any significant, positive catalysts, investors should sell T stock.Source: Shutterstock For one, a dividend cut is certainly possible. With T stock's dividend yield topping 6% and AT&T owing a staggering total of nearly $196.5 billion as of the end of the first quarter, no one should be surprised if the company cuts its payout. Those who are bullish on T stock may note that the company's trailing-12-month operating cash flow was nearly $46 billion, but the company only had $6.6 billion of cash at the end of Q1, making its overall debt load rather heavy. The report that AT&T is looking to sell its Puerto Rico business indicates that it knows it badly needs cash.While cutting the dividend would provide the company with a meaningful amount of cash, it would also cause T stock to sink because the dividend haircut would make the shares less lucrative and greatly undermine confidence in AT&T stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Streaming Won't Rescue AT&T StockAT&T's upcoming streaming service -- HBO Max -- will feature programming from Warner Media (primarily TBS, TNT, HBO, and CNN) and movies, along with some original content. The online video service, slated to launch sometime next year, is expected to cost a lot more than the $13 per month that Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) charges for its most popular plan. * 7 Stocks Top Investors Are Buying Now Judging by the recent financial performance of its two main components -- HBO and the Turner legacy channels -- the appeal of HBO Max's primary content is declining. Mott Capital Management, writing on Seeking Alpha, noted HBO's Q1 top line dropped to $1.51 billion versus $1.62 billion in the year-earlier period, while Turner's revenue inched down to $3.44 billion from $3.45 billion. Ominously for AT&T stock, HBO's operating revenue reached its lowest level since Q2 of 2017.And from a common sense standpoint, it's hard to see how consumers will be convinced to pay more than Netflix is charging for Turner's reruns of worn-out sitcoms like Big Bang Theory, and American Dad, along with HBO, whose popularity is slipping, and CNN, by far the least-popular cable news channel. I know that Friends is the most popular show on Netflix, but I don't think many consumers are going to pay $15+ per month to watch the 20+-year-old Ross-Rachel saga. Only if HBO Max manages to develop a few new hit shows does the channel have any chance of moving the needle in a positive direction for AT&T stock by 2025, And, with all the competition out there, I wouldn't bet on that. Content Spending and Premium TV Results Are Worth WatchingOriginal content is not cheap, and the AT&T's investments in that area could spook investors, causing T stock to sink in the wake of the company's Q1 results. Another trend that may scare the market is continued, steep declines in the company's premium TV subscriber base. Premium video connections -i.e., consumers who are paying it for satellite and cable connections -- sank nearly 6.5% YoY to 22.4 million in Q1, Mott Capital's Michael Kramer noted. If that trend accelerated in Q2, T stock could take a big hit on Wednesday, and a dividend cut could happen sooner rather than later. * 10 Tech Stocks That Are Still Worth Your Time (And Money) 5G Could Rescue AT&T Stock Down the RoadAT&T could use 5G, which will enable a variety of cool location-based services, as well as much faster downloads, to attract more wireless subscribers from smaller carriers. It could also use the technology to steal broadband internet subscribers from cable companies like Comcast (NYSE:CMCSA) and Charter (NASDAQ:CHTR). Finally, if AT&T can use 5G to provide more services to its subscribers, it could potentially squeeze much more revenue from them. Taken together, all of these attributes of 5G could meaningfully boost AT&T top and bottom lines, providing a much needed positive catalyst for T stock.But the company's 5G network isn't expected to roll out nationwide until early next year, and it will likely take the company time to market any new offerings that arise from it. So, for at least a year, 5G investments will weigh on T stock without producing any meaningful revenue for the company. Bottom Line on AT&T StockAT&T stock is facing multiple, negative catalysts, including steep pay TV subscriber and revenue losses, as well as high levels of investment in its streaming channel and in 5G. Moreover, its streaming channel probably won't be successful, and there's a good chance that it will cut its dividend. Although T stock could be rescued by 5G down the road, investors should stay away form the name for the foreseeable future.As of this writing, the author did not own any of the stocks named.
