    I treated my girlfriend to a vacation for paying off her car loan, but she still refuses to listen to my advice on spending money

    Formula E: Inside the “Silicon Valley of Cars”

    For those of us who love cars, it's easy to find out what the next generation will be like: Just check out the newest racecars. In the electric vehicle (EV) world, that means keeping your finger to the pulse of Formula E racing.In the automotive world, major racing hubs are like the Silicon Valley of cars. Tech startups have their "incubators," where companies like Airbnb and Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX) were born. And car companies have the speedway.In one brand-new racing league, the Electric Production Car Series, all of the entrants are Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model S. This car is not just another electric vehicle (EV) -- it's one of the greatest technological achievements of our age, with the ability to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds. And with even more power (and less weight), it becomes a top-of-the-line racecar.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Source: ElectricGTBut when it comes to racing electric vehicles, the big name is Formula E. These EVs are almost as fast as Formula One cars -- reaching 180 miles per hour on the straightaways -- but much quieter.If you've ever been to an auto race - or even heard obnoxiously loud cars on regular roads - you know how strange that is. When electric cars race, no one needs earplugs. And at everyday speeds, the cars are practically silent. After all, instead of the gasoline engine, there's just an electric motor.So, in this arena, the batteries are the stars of the show! * 7 Stocks Top Investors Are Buying Now In Formula E racing, the title sponsor is ABB Ltd. (NYSE:ABB), the Swiss industrial conglomerate -- and a major player in Europe's electric car infrastructure. So, naturally, the races are a chance for ABB to show off its tech. Outside the track, you'll see a big display of ABB's "Gen 2" racecar batteries.In the first Formula E races, pit crews had to rush out and change the batteries halfway through. They lasted about 25 minutes.The new batteries last for a full 45-minute race. And they're pretty massive. Source: ABB Formula E, YoutubeTo get the power they need -- which is equivalent to 300 laptops or 4,000 cell phones! -- these electric racecars devote half their weight (or roughly 750 pounds) to the battery.And ahead of last weekend's race in Red Hook, Brooklyn, one driver said, "We already know we're going to overheat the batteries."Right now, even top-of-the-line racecars, sporting the latest and greatest electric-vehicle technology, rely on the very same battery that powers your iPhone or laptop: the lithium-ion battery.Lithium-ion was originally developed for Sony camcorders back in the 1980s. And it was also in Samsung's (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) infamous "exploding phones."Remember when flight attendants were confiscating them? When the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would overheat, it caught fire. And everything from Teslas to HP laptops have had the same issue with their lithium-ion batteries.Lithium-ion batteries have come a long way, but they are closing in on their limits.So you can see why major car companies -- and Formula E participants -- like Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY), BMW (OTCMKTS:BMWYY), and Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY) are investing in next-generation batteries.This battery has: * Better energy density, making it smaller, lighter, but more powerful. * Shorter charging time due to fewer materials, which could produce a stronger current. One Chinese company, Enovate, is boasting a charge time of 80% in 15 minutes. That's twice as fast as Tesla. * Better safety. Unlike what we use now, this battery does not have toxic, flammable liquid inside. In one memorable test, a battery startup called Ionic Materials shot its with a Remington .22. It took three bullets, did not catch fire, and kept working!That's all great news for racecar drivers. And Formula E could be the perfect testing ground for this new technology.Volkswagen, which is already laying the groundwork to be fully electric by 2030, is working with a Silicon Valley startup to get these batteries into its cars and SUVs. The company is already one of the largest car manufacturers in the world, and if it can meet expectations I look for it to dominate electric vehicles, too -- largely thanks to this new battery.Audi, Porsche, and Mercedes all want these next-generation batteries in their fleets as soon as possible. So do General Motors (NYSE:GM), Ford Motor (NYSE:F), Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM), Honda Motor (NYSE:HMC), Mitsubishi Motors (OTCMKTS:MMTOF), and Hyundai Motor (OTCMKTS:HYMTF).I could go on…But as an investor, I'd rather own a pure play on the battery revolution. Invest Where "Big Auto" is Dropping Major CashI often talk about "picks and shovels" investing. And that's because if you look back at the 1849 Gold Rush, it was the folks supplying the picks and shovels who ultimately got rich.Therefore, at Investment Opportunities, I'm recommending companies that supply this new technology -- nicknamed the "Jesus Battery."Find out exactly what makes this battery so miraculous here.Any competitors that have it will CRUSH Tesla, which may as well flush all the money it's spending on lithium-ion batteries down the toilet.If you ever wanted to invest in the coming electric car revolution, but weren't sure how, THIS is your chance.I know I do.So I found a company that holds key patents.Automakers like Toyota are relying on this tiny company for its electric cars. Yet the company is totally off the radar.That makes now the right time to get in before everyone else. I've got a full presentation on the investment opportunity in this "Jesus Battery," which you can view for free by clicking here.Matthew McCall is the founder and president of Penn Financial Group, an investment advisory firm, as well as the editor of Investment Opportunities and Early Stage Investor.

    Memory chip prices soar as South Korea-Japan dispute escalates

    Memory chip prices have soared over the past week as a diplomatic stand-off between Japan and South Korea has escalated, threatening global supplies of smartphone and computer components. The spot prices for dynamic random-access memory chips have spiked nearly 12 per cent since July 9, the biggest such jump since 2017, according to data from Bernstein, as fears build over Tokyo’s new export controls on materials critical to the manufacture of computer chips, South Korea’s biggest export. Tokyo’s restrictions meant that from July 4, the country’s exporters of fluorinated polyamide, photoresists and hydrogen fluoride etching gas — Japanese groups hold dominant market shares globally — had to get clearance for selling the materials to the world’s two biggest memory chipmakers, Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix.

    Nasdaq Today: Jobs Report Alters Rate-Cut Expectations, Moves Tech

    Investors saw a 0.10% decline in the Nasdaq today, while the S&P 500 slipped 0.24%. However, that's much better than where the markets were in the first few hours of the day on Friday. Stocks initially sold off somewhat hard in the session after the June jobs report was released.Source: Shutterstock The non-farm payrolls report showed that 224,000 jobs were added to the economy in June. That far outpaced economists' expectations of 160,000 jobs and follows the May report which missed analysts' expectations by a wide margin.There were already calls for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates before the May jobs report was released. Once it missed expectations though, those calls grew even louder. In fact, investors started to clamor for a 50 basis point cut, rather than just a 25 basis point cut.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWith the latest report coming in notably ahead of estimates, the expectations for a 50 bps cut are dwindling quickly. Breaking Down the Rate CutsObviously, the jobs report is the big driver on Friday. Particularly when the market was closed on Thursday for the Fourth of July and while volumes are light. Just hours after the NFP report was released, we now see that Fed Funds futures are calling for a less than 5% chance of a 50 basis point cut. * 3 Earnings Reports to Watch Next Week Notably though, they still call for a 95% chance of a 25 basis point cut. If the Fed opts not to cut interest rates at this month's meeting (July 30-31), it's going to cause issues in the stock market.How do rates relate to tech stocks and the Nasdaq today? The Nasdaq fell almost 1% on the day at the lows, before recovering later in the day. While tech is not the most rate-sensitive sector out there, it's hard to argue that lower rates are bad for tech stocks. It makes borrowing cheaper and given that many of these companies use debt to fuel their growth -- like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) or Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) for instance -- that's good for their financials. Further, stock valuations benefit from lower interest rates and when multiples expand, tech is one of the biggest beneficiaries. Click to EnlargeAs for the Nasdaq today, the index made a near-perfect pullback to the key 8,100 level. The index promptly bounced from this mark and closed up toward 8,162. While it did breach 8,100 temporarily, Friday's action was pretty healthy overall. Let's see if 8,100 can hold up as support again next week, and potentially push the Nasdaq to new highs. News in the Nasdaq TodaySamsung (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) warned that its profit fell by 56% in the quarter. Sluggish demand for smartphones and memory chips weighed on the tech giant's bottom line.Given the action and news we've seen and heard from other chip and memory stocks -- Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) and Micron (NASDAQ:MU) for instance -- Samsung's announcement is no surprise. Micron, Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), Skyworks (NASDAQ:SWKS), NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI) and others fell on the news too.Shares of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA) were under further pressure Friday, falling more than 4% on the day. The stock is now down 7.5% for the week, as the company releases its second season of Apex Legends. The action is very disappointing, with the stock blowing through various moving averages and solidifying its range resistance. On the plus side though, key support is still holding up.Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) found itself in the news for a few reasons on Friday.First, Amazon filed for permission with the FCC to launch more than 3,200 satellites into orbit with the intention to provide broadband internet. It's not unlike some of the internet ambitions we've heard from companies like Elon Musk's SpaceX, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). Amazon believes its internet plans -- called the Kuiper project -- can serve tens of millions of customers at one point. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy That Are Down in 2019 Elsewhere, Amazon hit a regulatory hurdle with its $575 million investment of Deliveroo.

    Stocks finish slightly lower after strong jobs report, pull back from records

    Stocks finished slightly lower on Friday, backing away from all-time highs hit earlier this week, after a better-than-expected employment report in June partially rolled back investors' expectations for multiple rate cuts this year. The S&P 500 was down 0.2% to finish around 2,991. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 41 points, or 0.2%, to end near 26,925. The Nasdaq Composite was down 0.1% to end around 8,162. For the week, Dow was up 1.2%, S&P was up 1.7%, and Nasdaq up 1.9%. The S&P snapped a five-day winning streak, and the Dow ended its four straight session of gains. The U.S. economy added 224,000 jobs in June, above the 170,000 expected by analysts. Semiconductor stocks were on the backfoot on Friday after South Korean chip maker Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. reported a 56% drop in its second-quarter profits.

  • 3 Reasons to Take a Shot at Nvidia Stock Now

    3 Reasons to Take a Shot at Nvidia Stock Now

    The past nine months have been nothing less than miserable for Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA). Since peaking near $293 per share in October of last year, Nvidia stock price has dropped to a low of $124.46, and its couple of rebound efforts in the meantime have been less than permanent.Source: Shutterstock The current Nvidia stock price near $163 is still just over half of what it was less than a year ago.Certainly the underpinnings of NVDA's weakness are understandable. They include the rebirth of rival Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), the implosion of the cryptocurrency mining industry and a tariff war with China, all of which are still key factors weighing on investors' minds.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 5 Dividend Stocks to Buy From Across the Globe The degree of the punishment doesn't fit the scope of the crime, however, and three recent developments may well prove to be the excuse sidelined bulls are waiting for to file back into NVDA. RTX Super CardsWhether it's by design or just a simple coincidence is unclear, but the two big graphics processing powerhouses -- AMD and Nvidia -- rarely launch new products at the same time.That dynamic let Advanced Micro Devices steal some graphics processing unit (GPU) market share last quarter, driven by purchases of AMD's then-new 7 nanometer Radeon VII as well as its updated Polaris family.NVDA appears to have only been biding its time, however. The company's new GeForce RTX 2070 Super and GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics cards, launching this month, deliver more power at the same price AMD is charging for its most comparable discreet GPUs.The current quarter could be better than expected for NVDA. Getting a Cheap Price From SamsungRather than tapping Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE:TSM) as the manufacturer of its Ampere GPUs slated to debut in 2020, NVDA has asked Samsung Electronics (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) to handle the load. That may mean little on the surface to the layperson, but to technophiles, it matters.Details of the deal are scant, but most credible rumors seem to suggest that Samsung offered Nvidia a price it couldn't refuse. Either NVDA will enjoy wide margins on the GPUs or it will be able to pass those savings along to customers.It's often a risky move to switch suppliers and contracted manufacturers. Samsung has done similar work for NVDA in the past, though, and the Korean firm isn't exactly an unknown name in the business. MellanoxFinally, in March of this year, Nvidia announced that it intended to buy Israel's Mellanox Technologies (NASDAQ:MLNX), which makes internet switches and adapters, offering $6.9 billion in cash for the company.China, however, could still scuttle the deal.Chinese regulators could claim the pairing violates its antitrust standards. It's a stretched argument, but that scenario could still play out And, given the trade war tensions in place now, Beijing could easily run such interference for purely political reasons.Following a relatively amicable G20 summit that ended in an agreement to at least not impose any new tariffs on trade between China and the United States, however, China may choose to offer another olive branch by not impeding the acquisition.Mellanox would provide Nvidia with an even stronger hold on the data center market. The Bottom Line on NVDA StockDon't kid yourself. For better or worse,rhetoric and perception has done most of the damage to Nvidia stock, and it's a change in the rhetoric and perception that will lift Nvidia stock price again. This is, as much as anything else, a psychological situation.None of the three aforementioned developments is earth-shattering, but all are high-visibility developments that can quickly improve sentiment towards Nvidia stock, setting the stage for a sizable rebound.But there's still the impasse with China, which supplies Nvidia with half of its revenue. Even with no new tariffs being established, existing ones remain in place. There's little doubt that NVDA has felt their impact.Eventually, however, the tariffs will be rescinded or Nvidia will figure out a way to adapt to them. The deeper dive into data centers is one such adaptation. Switching production of its GPU to Samsung is another.Meanwhile,analysts' average price target for Nvidia stock is about $182; the most bullish analyst has a $225 price target on the name. Though those are forward-looking targets on NVDA, the company's got enough fresh firepower in its arsenal to justify prices somewhere between those two figures.It increasingly looks like investors are starting to recognize that reality, too.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
