You’ll soon be able to ask Alexa questions when you’re on the go.

On Friday, Amazon (AMZN) announced that gadget manufacturers will be able to include the company’s voice assistant Alexa in portable devices like headphones, smartwatches and fitness wearables.

Users will be able to ask Alexa to do things like read the news or tell them the weather when they’re out and about.

Alexa is already integrated in some third-party devices such as speakers, kitchen appliances and security alarm systems.

With the tech giant’s new Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit, companies will be able to add Alexa to more gadgets with minimal investment in hardware or integration efforts, according to Amazon.

Amazon said that with the kit, third-party development teams no longer have to do the majority of the coding to integrate Alexa. Devices that are Bluetooth audio capable can connect directly to the Alexa Voice Service through the Amazon Alexa app on the user’s mobile device.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Shares in Sohu.com (SOHU) continued their rapid rise, hitting yet another fresh 52-week high during the session, as the company announced the special dividend from Sohou yesterday (press release located here). Sohu.com will receive nearly $161.2 million in the transaction which is part of the overall $400 million deal with Tencent (TCEHY.PK) which was announced not too long ago. These are exciting times in the internet space as we move from computers to mobile devices, but China’s internet landscape looks like the ‘Wild West’ right now and we expect to see further deals as companies jockey for position in their respective niches and consolidation begins as the larger players look to step up growth and gain exposure to new business segments.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Invest In 2018

Hey, Alexa, can anything stop Amazon?

Shares of the e-commerce king, which is also now a cloud computing giant, connected-home leader, drone company, freight airline, Hollywood studio and even a traditional brick-and-mortar retailer, rose above $900 for the first time Tuesday.

It’s another all-time high.

Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) stock is on a seven-day winning streak. The shares have gained 7% during that stretch and more than 20% this year.

As a result, Amazon is worth more than $430 billion. That’s nearly twice the market value of its rival Walmart (WMT), which has a market cap of a mere $220 billion.

Only Apple (AAPL, Tech30), Google owner Alphabet (GOOGL, Tech30) and Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) are worth more than Amazon. The Jeff Bezos-led company is now more valuable than Facebook (FB, Tech30) and Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRKB).

And with that $900 stock price, Amazon is approaching some rarefied air.

    On Tuesday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedshorting small cap data storage systems stock Qualstar Corporation (NASDAQ: QBAK):

    Quelstar is essentially a mirror image of Pixelworks. That is, it’s not just the bearish undertow we want to tap into here. It’s the failure of QBAK to follow-through on today’s effort to break above the 100-day moving average line with today’s early effort. The market dared the bulls to play their hand, and as it turns out, they were bluffing. The sheer scope of the reversal bar in the meantime today confirms the downtrend.

invest penny stocks: Ono Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (OPHLF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Merck could achieve a consistent advantage versus BMS in treatment of 1L NSCLC. There is a precise crossroad that will determine the future of these two companies in this field: the question of whether or not Keytruda will be approved in May. Both the market and investors believe that it will indeed gain approval and BMS’s stock is already paying for that. In the short term, the repercussions will be the contractions in the sales of Opdivo in 2L and a bigger obstacle for Opdivo+Yervoy in 1L. But the BMS’s combo can catch up, thanks to a bigger efficacy, as I will explain in a future article. Meanwhile, a recent trial established that Merck has to pay BMS $625M plus royalties, as it infringed BMS’s intellectual property related to the use of anti-PD1 antibodies. The royalties will be 6.5% for sales between January 2017 and the end of 2023, followed by a 2.5% rate for the period from January 2024 to the end of 2026. Bristol-Myers Squibb will share the money by giving a quarter of the amount to the Japanese Ono Pharmaceutical (OTC:OPHLF), the company which had discovered Opdivo.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Shares in Sohu.com (SOHU) continued their rapid rise, hitting yet another fresh 52-week high during the session, as the company announced the special dividend from Sohou yesterday (press release located here). Sohu.com will receive nearly $161.2 million in the transaction which is part of the overall $400 million deal with Tencent (TCEHY.PK) which was announced not too long ago. These are exciting times in the internet space as we move from computers to mobile devices, but China’s internet landscape looks like the ‘Wild West’ right now and we expect to see further deals as companies jockey for position in their respective niches and consolidation begins as the larger players look to step up growth and gain exposure to new business segments.

    Sohu.com (SOHU) is a Chinese online media, search, gaming, community and mobile service group. This stock closed up 7.5% to $69.61 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 4.90 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 1.01 million

    Volume % Change: 351%

    From a technical perspective, SOHU ripped sharply higher here with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of SOHU into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $67.80. Shares of SOHU are now quickly moving within range of triggering another breakout trade. That trade will hit if SOHU manages to take out Monday’s high of $69.71 to its 52-week high at $70.63 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SOHU as long as it’s trending above Monday’s low of $66.95 or above that first breakout level of $67.80 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.01 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SOHU will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $75 to $80.

Megyn Kelly was arguably the highest-profile media figure of the 2016 campaign, thanks to her exchanges with Donald Trump. Yet as Trump was sworn in as president, the former Fox News anchor stayed sidelined, waiting to start her new assignment at NBC News.

Set up to host two different shows — including an hour of “Today” come fall — “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” marked her official NBC debut, armed with a high-profile “get” interview with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

In a CNN interview, Kelly maintained “Sunday Night” would distinguish itself by being “cutting edge” and “a little irreverent.” Those attributes, however, weren’t particularly evident in a premiere that looked like pretty much any conventional newsmagazine, including separate pieces from Cynthia McFadden and Harry Smith.

Kelly’s centerpiece interview displayed some of the toughness that defined her at Fox, expressing disbelief when the Russian president claimed he hadn’t spoken with his ambassador about meetings with Trump’s inner circle. “Never?” she asked, with an arched eyebrow.

    Time To Favor Optionality: Most macro data are similar to, or better than, when the merger was announced. As a result, the same returns have been obtainable, with significantly less stress, simply through owning 3M (MMM) or a basket of chemical companies that approximate the Dow-DuPont portfolio. Relative to the chemical sector, performance has been average, leverage appears reasonable but near-term FCF less-than compelling partly due to new capacity ramping. With the merger likely to close in the near-term (90% chance, in our view), we believe Dow-DuPont will have an opportunity to show how scale creates optionality. The overhaul at Celanese (CE) over the past few years shows the way.

    Southwestern Energygained 5.8% to $10.98 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.3% to 2,265.18. Front Month Nymex natural gas futures contracts for January delivery jumped 8.6% to $3.5420 per million btu.

    Southwestern Energy (SWN) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today as concerns about a cold spell and a report that showed lower natural gas supply sent natural gas prices higher

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Shares of Southwestern Energy climbed 6.9% to $12.13 today, while the S&P 500 fell 0.4% to 2,191.08.

    Desjardins Capital Markets’ Kristopher Zack and team explain that the “cold weather forecast [is] lighting a fire under NYMEX.” They explain:

    Although oil prices have dominated the headlines following yesterdays OPEC cut, it has also been a fairly supportive week for natural gas producers, with winter NYMEX strip now approaching the US$3.50/mmbtu level, a far cry from last winters experience. La Ni帽a conditions have also been supportive, and we note that next Thursday morning the US Climate Prediction Center will provide its monthly update on the progress of conditions in the El Ni帽o region, which could be a good leading indicator of future weather patterns entering the heart of the winter season from mid-December through early March…

    Temperatures expected to track near normalized levels over next two weeks, which is significantly colder than last winter’s levels. The weather forecast remains fairly constructive for December heating demand, with Heating Degree Days (HDDs) tracking very close to normalized levels through mid-month and particularly cold temperatures expected in the western US.

    Southwestern Energy’s market capitalization rose to $6 billion from $5.6 billion yesterday. It reported a net loss of $4.6 billion on sales of $2.9 billion in 2015.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018

Russ Kaplan is a leading money manager with a value-oriented and contrarian approach to very long-term investing; here’s a look at his top growth idea for the coming year.

One of the few places of value in this market is the home building stocks and our Top Pick for growth-oriented investors is D. R. Horton (DHI), which is a home building stock.

D.R. Horton is more than just a homebuilder, however. Horton is involved in all aspects of the realty area. It also owns lots of property and is into title insurance.

Yes, mortgage rates have gone up, but that is already reflected in the price of the stock, which has fallen from $38 to a recent price is the $28 range. I can see it going back to $38 in the near future.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Monica Gerson]

    Sohu.com Inc (NASDAQ: SOHU) is projected to report a quarterly loss at $0.57 per share on revenue of $406.50 million.

    Bank of Hawaii Corporation (NYSE: BOH) is expected to report its quarterly earnings at $0.99 per share on revenue of $149.88 million.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Sohu.com (SOHU) is a Chinese online media, search, gaming, community and mobile service group. This stock closed up 7.5% to $69.61 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 4.90 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 1.01 million

    Volume % Change: 351%

    From a technical perspective, SOHU ripped sharply higher here with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of SOHU into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $67.80. Shares of SOHU are now quickly moving within range of triggering another breakout trade. That trade will hit if SOHU manages to take out Monday’s high of $69.71 to its 52-week high at $70.63 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SOHU as long as it’s trending above Monday’s low of $66.95 or above that first breakout level of $67.80 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.01 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SOHU will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $75 to $80.

While US markets continue to head to new highs almost daily at this point, there is one stock that continues to head in the opposite direction. Shipping name DryShips (NASDAQ:DRYS) continues to fall after its latest $200 million share sale agreement with Kalani Investments. As more and more dilution adds up, shares continue to plummet, as seen below:

At this point, DryShips basically is selling a large block of stock to Kalani every week. Before this second Kalani deal started, a little more than 36 million shares were outstanding. After last week’s sale, that number had soared to more than 58 million, and much of the Kalani deal was still pending. Well, after the bell on Friday, DryShips filed another 6-K detailing the latest round of this deal.

In a short period of time readers and I have been pleasantly surprised by the outperformance of this model portfolio.

Click to enlarge Figure 1: Ceviche Fund Snapshot November 19th

While the fund takes a “go anywhere” approach, lately the opportunities we’ve been seeing are in biotech companies that are undervalued relative to their future prospects, with catalysts on the way that could result in near to medium term share price appreciation.

In hindsight, it wasn’t great timing when I started the fund near the beginning of correction in biotech. However, when it comes to the markets in general I don’t try to predict future movement- instead I look for price action, money flow, and the fundamental story on individual stocks I take positions in.

    Shares in Sohu.com (SOHU) continued their rapid rise, hitting yet another fresh 52-week high during the session, as the company announced the special dividend from Sohou yesterday (press release located here). Sohu.com will receive nearly $161.2 million in the transaction which is part of the overall $400 million deal with Tencent (TCEHY.PK) which was announced not too long ago. These are exciting times in the internet space as we move from computers to mobile devices, but China’s internet landscape looks like the ‘Wild West’ right now and we expect to see further deals as companies jockey for position in their respective niches and consolidation begins as the larger players look to step up growth and gain exposure to new business segments.

technical trading: athenahealth, Inc.(ATHN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Meanwhile, earnings season continued to play out, and although the technology industry saw some extremely encouraging reports, not all stocks participated in the rally. Athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN), Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF), and Time (NYSE:TIME) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    Shares of Athena Health (ATHN) are up 37% in just over a month. Is there still more room to run?

    Cramer said for years Athena had been a fast-growing stock, but as the company transitioned from growth to profitability, things began to get ugly. The company’s bombastic CEO, and his “colorful” personality began to rub shareholders the wrong way.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Athenahealth (ATHN) last night announced that its CFO and administrative chief, Kristi Matus, would be leaving the company. Her departure has not been embraced by investors, who have pushed shares lower today. Leerink’s David Larsen understands their concerns:

    In our view, the CFO departure may be indicative of internal operational challenges. We still think it is possible that Kristi Matus is seeking an environment that is not as demanding as ATHN, though this has not been confirmed by management. Management harped on the point that bifurcation is part of the strategic initiative of ATHN to reenergize the culture of the company, and Jonathan Bush noted how he himself hopes to spend more time on talent and culture and less time on entering new markets and building new products.

    We continue to believe that ATHN is facing challenges. We continue to believe the market is fundamentally slowing and bookings growth may become more lumpy as we progress through 2016. We still believe there will be a slow-down in the bookings growth rate b/c of a possible slow-down in the ambulatory EMR market and the fact that we are in the final payment year of Meaningful Use. Much of the call focused on Kristi Matus’s departure as a major loss for the company of a leader who was “masterful with investors.” According to management, the decision to split the CFO and CFAO responsibilities was not a reflection of her ability.

    Baird’s Matthew Gillmor and Sean McBride are less worried:

    The unexpected resignation of CFO Kristi Matus is disappointing, but the reasons for her departure seem somewhat understandable, in our view (potentially viewed bifurcation of CFO/CAO role as a demotion). We think incoming CFO Karl Stubelis is very strong and should provide helpful continuity, both internally and externally (currently serves as Controller and previously as acting CFO). Finally, the CFO change does not change our positive long-term thesi

technical trading: VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VTGN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Four ideas turned up in this screen that might be of interest (prices as of February 9th close):

    Heron Therapeutics (NASDAQ:HRTX) by ONeil Trader – published February 3rd, 2017, $525M Market cap, down ~2% since publication, author’s price target offers 130% upside. HRTX isn’t a generic drug provider, but its CINV franchise vs. the growth of a new drug gives it a similar sort of profile, and arguably a favorable risk/reward; commenters were mostly positive on the thesis. VistaGen Therapeutics (OTC:VTGN) by Logical Assessment – published July 29, 2016, $24M market cap, down 16% since publication, author’s price target offers 100%+ upside. This is obviously deeper into the speculative pile, but if the author’s thesis holds about VistaGen’s unique angle in the antidepressant drug space, comparable deals suggest good upside. (Of course, it’s always dangerous to rely solely on comparables). Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories (NYSE:RDY) by Buddy Lyons – published July 5, 2016, $7.6B market cap, down ~13% since publication, author’s price target offers just shy of 100% upside. Dr. Reddy’s is a more obvious comparable to TEVA, with a generics business but also a manufacturing business and a proprietary products branch. The company bought a divestiture package of drugs from TEVA as part of the Allergan/Actavis deal. A big overhang was an FDA warning letter; the FDA is due to reinspect facilities this month or next, which could resolve that one way or another. Lannett (NYSEMKT:LCI) by Lateral Capital Management – published May 27, 2016, $750M market cap, down ~9% since publication, author’s price target offers 75% upside. LCI’s trading had been 90% correlated with Valeant, but Lateral Capital Management argues that the correlation is unjustified. The article does a deep dive into the company’s valuation and credit risk, and was well received at the time, even if the market hasn’t agreed…yet.

technical trading: CVS Health Corporation(CVS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JACK HOUGH]

    CVS Health (CVS) is a long-term winner, returning more than 14% a year over the past decade, double the yearly return of the S&P 500. It has sold off from over $110 this past summer to a recent $93, presenting a buying opportunity. The decline stems in part from management last quarter issuing 2016 earnings guidance below Wall Street expectations. Even so, it implies earnings per share growth of 10% to 14% next year. Shares now sell for 16 times projected earnings for the next four quarters, down from close to 20 times earlier this year.

    The company remains at the center of trends that could keep earnings growing at a double-digit pace through the end of the decade. Increased medical-plan coverage is driving more prescriptions. So is the aging of the baby boomers. Medical plans are looking to save on drugs, and some are turning over more business to drug-plan managers like CVS’ Caremark. Patients looking for savings, including those who remain uninsured, can take care of basic health-care needs through walk-in clinics, like CVS’ Minute Clinic chain. The stock’s dividend yield is unremarkable at 1.5%, but payments are expected to grow more than 60% cumulatively over the next three years.
