(Bloomberg) -- Huawei Technologies Co.’s revenue jumped 24% in 2019’s first nine months, defying Trump administration sanctions to sustain growth in its pivotal smartphone business.China’s largest technology company reported revenue of 610.8 billion yuan ($86.1 billion) in the January to September period. Global smartphone shipments jumped 26% in the first three quarters to over 185 million units, helping safeguard its position as the world’s second largest name in mobile devices.China’s largest technology company managed to grow revenue despite curbs on the export of crucial American software and components, which executives had warned for months would severely crimp both its networking and smartphone businesses. Huawei has said it expects U.S. export restrictions to reduce annual revenue at its consumer devices business by about $10 billion, in part because Google can no longer supply Android updates and apps from Gmail to Maps for the Chinese company’s newest handsets.The company’s reported results -- which were unaudited -- suggest that those restrictions have yet to severely impair the business. Huawei, accused by Donald Trump’s administration of aiding Beijing in spying while spearheading China’s tech-superpower ambitions, is trying to claw back business and shore up trust in its products.Billionaire founder Ren Zhengfei has warned his tech empire faces a “live or die moment,” and mobilized thousands of staff to work around the clock devising alternatives to American technology. Some American giants, including Intel Corp. and Micron Technologies Inc., have said they’re found ways to resume supplying Huawei, a major boost for the Chinese company.Huawei Sales Growth Slumps as U.S. Sanctions Start to BiteIts phone shipments in 2019 suggest its lead in the Chinese market, the world’s largest, is offsetting weak sales abroad. Huawei shipped more than 206 million smartphones in 2018, according to research firm IDC. The company is betting on its home turf and upcoming holiday season to drive its smartphone sales for the rest of the year. It aims to take half of the smartphone market in China, Bloomberg News reported earlier.There are signs also that U.S. efforts to block Huawei from the development of 5G technology are flagging: Huawei said Wednesday it has signed more than 60 5G commercial contracts to date worldwide. A senior executive in India for the company said the government there had given “no negative feedback” on Huawei, while in Germany, one of the biggest European markets, the Merkel administration said Huawei’s equipment will not be excluded in future 5G procurement. Huawei’s biggest bet, however, remains in China, where state-owned carriers are ready to build their own 5G networks.It remains unclear whether prolonged sanctions will eventually rob Huawei of growth, something Ren himself has warned may happen. Huawei remains at the heart of U.S. tensions with China, a symbol of the Asian country’s rising technological might.Critics charge that intellectual property theft from the likes of Cisco Systems Inc. and Motorola Solutions Inc. helped Huawei vault into the upper echelons of telecommunications providers, though Ren and his executives credit years of investment and research. The wireless giant is now accelerating spending on artificial intelligence chips and mobile software. It’s mobilizing its employees to source or develop alternatives to American circuitry and software to keep its edge in smartphones and next-generation 5G wireless technology.To contact Bloomberg News staff for this story: Gao Yuan in Beijing at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Peter Elstrom at email@example.com, Colum Murphy, Edwin ChanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Wall Street is breathing easier today. But given that it is October and the art of deal-making is far from certain these days, investors can tread more confidently if they choose income-generating, blue-chip stocks that are well-positioned for winning the trade war. Let me explain.The Dow Jones Industrial Average is nearly through the first half of October -- a month notorious for spooking investors -- and so far a market correction still hasn't happened. That's not to say the period hasn't been without incident or that a correction won't make an appearance this year. The fact is elevated volatility, back-and-forth political intrigue and mixed economic data offering jeers and cheers have been a staple on Wall Street this month. Nevertheless, a pullback which saw blue-chip stocks lose as much as 4.25% in early October has been completely retraced as of Friday's intraday trade.So, where exactly does that leave investors, other than a flat October, which may feel like a victory?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsGiven that deal-making hasn't been a proven hallmark of U.S. President Donald Trump, I'm not holding my breath that today's market optimism for a partial trade deal with China won't be derailed by a tweet or temper tantrum. Of course, something else out of left field or maybe the continued saga of Donald and the Giant Impeach could always find Wall Street pulling up its bootstraps and getting defensive again. * 7 Beverage Stocks to Buy Now With all of that said, I'm recommending investors stick with blue-chip stocks. Risk-assets of this caliber have prevailed over bear markets, weathered all sorts of political theater and will pay investors for their patience. And right now three of these names also enjoy negotiating power for bulls on the price charts. Blue-Chip Stocks to Buy: Disney (DIS)Disney (NYSE:DIS) is the first of the blue-chip stocks to buy. The diversified entertainment giant hit all-time-highs in late July fueled by a breakout from a near three-year long triangle pattern.Shares of this blue-chip pay investors a below-market dividend of 1.36%. That's nothing to write home about, but it's a little something for your time. Moreover, DIS stock offers investors nice prospects for continued growth. And my guess is Disney's deeper move into the streaming market with Disney+ later this year and against the likes of Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), will prove to be the company's newest stock booster.With an oversold DIS stock pulling back to test its 40-week simple moving average, lower Bollinger Band and 50% retracement level in an inside doji bottoming pattern, this blue-chip stock is nearly ready to buy.DIS Stock Strategy: My advice is to buy DIS stock on confirmation of the two-week candlestick bottoming pattern as shares trade through $131.78. I'd give this blue-chip stock a bit of wiggle room, but if shares fall below $126.50, exiting the position and keeping the powder dry for stronger opportunities makes sense. Cisco Systems (CSCO)Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) is the next of our blue-chip stocks to buy. And you can thank Goldman Sachs for putting CSCO stock into a better position for buying. On Thursday, the investment firm warned Cisco's enterprise revenues will weaken while its telecom spending will remain at depressed levels. Investors reacted by sending shares down 1.47%.The combination in CSCO stock I'm looking at is much more upbeat. Today's buyers can get into this blue-chip as it offers a 3% yield backed by price action that's setting up a corrective double-bottom inside a very strong technical support zone. * 10 Winning Stocks to Buy and Stick With for the Long Haul CSCO Stock Strategy: My advice in this blue-chip stock is to buy shares next week if the hammer candlestick is confirmed above $48.13. All chips are off the table if the pattern fails and investors would be smart to exit or risk a much larger correction toward possibly $40 a share. AT&T (T)Not that I've saved the best for last, but AT&T (NYSE:T) is a blue-chip stock whose attractive income stream of 5.50%, relative strength and pattern on the price chart make it ripe for buying.Shares are in position to stage a breakout from a tight multi-week consolidation that has found support from prior highs and above T stock's cup-shaped base of nearly 2.5-years. Bullish investors might also see the current pattern as a "high" handle formation. Either way, the price action bodes well for a continued rally into 2020.T Stock Strategy: The plan for buying this blue-chip stock is simple. Wait for T stock to trade above resistance and purchase shares through $38.22. And respect the pattern low for exiting if needed, as an even larger yield may not be worth the trouble.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in securities mentioned in this article.
