    Nvidia Reaction Speaks Volumes — Here’s How To Trade It

    In the past two years, there has been a battle between new and old tech. Old dogs like Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Adobe (NASDAQ:ADBE) needed to learn new tricks in order to compete in this new tech era where companies like Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM) and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) are all the rage. The aforementioned two did but some like IBM (NASDAQ:IBM) still are trying to make the turn. The cloud is where all tech wants to be.Nvdia (NASDAQ:NVDA) skirts the line between the new and the old tech. Last year, it caught the attention of Wall Street as the new king of the chip jungle. But since its peak of $290 per share last October, it got cut in more than half. And even through yesterday, not many were suggesting any reason to own it. This, to me, was a sign to dip my toe in the Nvidia stock waters.When management guided down in January, they set the default consensus that NVDA stock is doomed, so they caused the stock to run out of incremental sellers. This is the same as saying that the weak hands are all out already. When that happens, usually a stock will need significantly worse new reasons to fall further.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis notion is proven right today, as the stock is rallying on relatively bad news. Last night NVDA reported earnings and they missed on a few metrics, yet they beat on revenue and earnings, and the stock rose on the headline. Investors now believe that they are rectifying the sales mix that plagued them last year. * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher Fundamentally, Nvidia stock at $290 was very frothy. But when it fell from grace, it became a bargain compared to what it was before. It now sports a trailing-12-months price-to-earnings ratio of 21 and for a growth company that is very reasonable. Compare this to Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), AMZN or Chipotle (NYSE:CMG). These wall street darlings' P/E are 133, 80 and 96 respectively.If you compare NVDA to its competitors, it is twice as expensive as Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) but more than three times cheaper than Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD). So any which way you consider it, it's not grossly over priced. Owning it here means that I would be buying value for it to appreciate over time.Part of what caused its demise was its ties to the Crypto-craze of 2018. Speculators used its chips to mine bitcoins and other Crypto-currencies. But since the prices of those collapsed, that made mining them a losing proposition. NVDA suffered sales mix issues that dragged sentiment down as a whole. Add to this that overall the markets last year were hideous then it was normal to over-react on the downside just like they did on the upside.By now, these ties to bitcoin are dead and traders can fall back in love with NVDA's core competency once more. This is a momentum stock, as you can clearly see from the 12-month price range, so it won't give us clear entry points. All I know is that over time, stocks of quality companies will rise. So this is a relatively safe spot to buy a starter position of NVDA stock. If I already own it, depending on my base price I could add to it to average down.For those who use options, I like to sell puts below support levels to generate income. This means that I commit to buying the shares below and if it indeed falls then I buy them at that price. Otherwise I would have generated income out of thin air.Another way to use options is to sell covered calls. So if I own shares I can create my own dividends. This hedges my longs a bit by betting against my asset. Some even like to buy the shares for the purpose of writing calls against them.The bottom line is that Nvida is a great American company and it is working its way back into Wall Street's favor. Currently there are a lot of analysts who have a "hold" rating on the stock, so some of them may want to rejoin the bull herd and upgrade the stock. It currently trades well below their average price target around $188.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

  • Netflix Stock Is All About The Innovator’s Dilemma
    InvestorPlace4 days ago

    Netflix Stock Is All About The Innovator’s Dilemma

    The rally since the December lows has certainly been impressive. But as for Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), it has made this bull move look kind of tame. Since late December, the shares have soared from $234 to $360 -- or about 53%.Source: Netflix Now, NFLX stock has a pretty good track record anyway. Consider that for the past decade the average annual return has been a blistering 51.8%!This really goes to how important major changes can be with large markets. It's essentially about the innovator's dilemma -- a concept developed by Harvard professor and entrepreneur Clayton Christensen in the 1990s -- where the incumbents cannot react quickly enough. The main reason is fear of cannibalizing the existing business.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut this can prove fatal. Over the years, we've seen how industries can be disrupted, such as with Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) in e-commerce, Uber with the taxi cab business and Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM) with enterprise software.With Netflix stock, the main catalysts for the disruption opportunity have been the availability of high-speed internet access and pervasiveness of smartphones. But there has also been a move towards affordable subscriptions. The result is a secular change in how people consume entertainment content. * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher The trend is clearly evident with cord-cutting. According to research from eMarketer, about 50 million Americans will abandon cable and satellite TV by 2021, up from 20 million this year.By being a first mover, Netflix has some significant competitive advantages that should last for quite some time. The company's name has become of top-of-mind for streaming. The company also has a lead in critical areas like AI, which has allowed for more effective content creation. And yes, there is the scale of the user base. There are currently about 139 million subscribers across 190 countries. In other words, Netflix is winning the "land grab" of the streaming opportunity.To put things into perspective, look at some of the findings from Lab42, a market research firm. About 89% of streaming subscribers are customers of Netflix and the renewal rate is 93%. By comparison, AMZN's is at 75% and Hulu's is 64%.With high levels of customer loyalty, NFLX has been able to build a substantial recurring revenue stream. It also means the company is in a position to periodically increase the pricing. Bottom Line On Netflix StockNo doubt, there are notable risk factors for Netflix stock. The competitive environment is getting more intense. Some of the rivals include Disney (NYSE:DIS), CBS (NYSE:CBS), Amazon, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL).Although, interestingly enough, the most recent Netflix shareholder letter notes that the wildly popular game, Fortnite, is much more of a competitor! The reason is that it is essentially a big draw on people's attention.Another nagging issue is that content development can be dicey. Even with the power of analytics, there could still be a string of flops. Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) is definitely an example of this. Despite having a large user base and large amounts of data, it has had a tough time creating engaging new titles.But for NFLX, there are few signs that the company is losing its touch in creating standout content. For example, its movie Bird Box has been streamed in 80 million homes.True, Netflix stock is far from cheap, with the forward price-to-earnings ratio at 54X. But then again, as we've seen over the years, this hasn't been much of a factor anyway, especially as the company should remain a leader in the disruption of the entertainment market.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.

    5 Futuristic Artificial Intelligence Stocks to Buy

    [Editor's note: This story was previously published in December 2018. It has since been updated and republished.]Before we know it, AI will be part of our everyday lives. Market experts say artificial intelligence will lead the next wave of economic growth and productivity for at least the next couple of decades. But many AI stocks have earned a cautious outlook from the Street.We all know the up and downsides of stocks like Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) and Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), but their challenges are separate from some other heavily AI-influenced stocks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsTo find the best investing opportunities in AI right now, we looked for five stocks with a "strong buy" or "moderate buy" consensus rating from the Street's top analysts. These are analysts with the highest success rate and average return.

    3 Reasons to Buy Adobe Stock in 2019

    The rebound in cloud stocks has been fast and fierce, which didn't really give investors a chance to load up on their favorites. Or should we say, when the opportunity presented itself, such as with Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE), not enough investors took their chance. So are investors out of luck with ADBE stock?I wouldn't say investors are out of luck, but they've likely missed their best buying chance of the recent correction. The one thing we can all hope for is a retrace of some or almost all of this rally from the Christmas Eve lows. The market does one thing really well, and that's cause as much chaos as possible at certain times. 1 ADBE Stock's Recent Price ActionOur first reason for buying Adobe stock comes from the charts.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMarkets barreled lower into Christmas, capitulating on the eve of the holiday. However, investors couldn't decipher if the next week of trading was simply a dead-cat bounce happening amid low volume during the typical Santa Claus rallying period. A few days into January and stocks were still climbing, causing many to wait on the sidelines for the inevitable pullback. Here are we in the beginning of February and many are still waiting. * 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for the Next 10 Months Adobe stock is one that investors wish they bought when they had the chance. Just don't make the same mistake twice if the opportunity presents itself.ADBE stock price is still $20 below its highs. While Salesforce (NYSE:CRM), Workday (NASDAQ:WDAY) and others have been on fire, so has Adobe. ADBE is now $50 up from its lows. Investors could justify buying ADBE stock another $10 lower, near the conflux of its 100-day and 200-day moving averages. I would love a "real" correction back down to $235 or so though before really getting long this name. 2 ADBE Stock FundamentalsAdobe stock is great thanks to one thing: subscriptions. Virtually every freelancer and every business in online marketing utilizes Adobe to some capacity. Whether it's to tidy up in Photoshop or make elaborate designs, ADBE carries the load. That's why it has such a good pulse on the e-commerce market as well. Customers have a few options when it comes to subscribing to Adobe, but for simplicity, let's look at the main one. A subscriber can gain access to just about all of Adobe's products by either paying month-to-month at a higher rate or paying at a lower monthly rate but signing up for a 12-month agreement.Once the refund period has passed, Adobe will be able to collect revenue from its users month after month after month. This leads to a more stable business with more predictable cash flows and it's exactly why its stock gets a premium in the market.Because of this subscription base and its leverage of the cloud, Adobe stock has exploded in recent years, as has its business. Revenue has doubled over the last five years while free cash flow (FCF) and cash flow from operations continue to coast from the lower left to the upper right. Over the last 12 months, Adobe has generated more than $4 billion in FCF. While Adobe does carry $4.1 billion in long-term debt, its total assets are double its total liabilities. 3 Adobe Stock in 2019Before Adobe reported Q4 earnings in December, it issued its 2019 outlook in mid-October. Management reiterated that it was on track to hit its fourth-quarter numbers and it's looking for 20% revenue growth in fiscal 2019. When it reported earnings in mid-December -- a top- and bottom-line beat -- Adobe updated its 2019 outlook to include its recent acquisitions.Despite all this, Wall Street didn't care, tossing the cloud juggernaut aside with the rest of the market into the Christmas Eve doldrums. Coal for everyone, they said, no matter how well the company is doing.After a quick retest of the lows, investors who stayed the course are the ones laughing now. Estimates call for full-year revenue of 28% and for earnings to swell 41.5% to $7.78 per share. Adobe isn't just growing, it's accelerating and that's why it's going to make investors even more money this year. * 7 Banks Stocks to Buy After the BB&T-Suntrust Mega-Merger Timing an entry has been important, but it can (and should) be done in ADBE stock.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
