Best Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

On Wednesday, our Elite Opportunity Pronewsletter suggested going long on the leveraged ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Crude Oil (NYSEARCA: UCO) ETF:

Oil, on the other hand, could be in the process of bottoming out for a good while. It’s a risky proposition, but one worth considering, especially since UCO, the primary bullish leveraged ETF tracking the price of oil, can offer up some pretty good gains once oil starts moving higher again

Although we do expect volatility around current levels, we’re still convinced oil is going to end up much higher when it’s all said and done, despite all of the rhetoric of oil inventory buildups. Sometimes the obvious isn’t what ends up happening, and these days we’ll take the technicals over the fundamentals on a short-term basis any day.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2018

This commentary relates to a profile of New Belgium Brewery in the July 27 Forbes.

Craft beer–how quaint, how cute! But don’t fall in love with an investment because you love the product. Craft Brew Alliance (BREW) is an assortment of artisanal beermakers from Oregon, Hawaii, New Hampshire and elsewhere. But a fair amount of its brewing and most of its distribution is handled by Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD), the Budweiser outfit.

In this crowded business, where freshness and economies of scale matter, smallness does not confer profits. Craft Brew’s enterprise value runs to 29 times its plausible 2017 net before interest, tax and depreciation; the ratio for AB InBev is more like 18. The latter is a better buy.

    That’s why its worth pointing out that just yesterday, small cap cannabinoid prodrug pharmaceutical stock Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (OTCQB: VBIO) announced the appointment of Tracy Rockney, J.D. to the position of Senior Regulatory Advisor. In addition to being the Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer of OneSource Regulatory, a regulatory consulting firm, Rockney was previously:

    From May 2010 to May 2015, she was the VP, Regulatory Affairs at AbbVie Inc (NYSE: ABBV) leading the executive functions related to regulatory policy and intelligence. From August 1993 to January 2005, she held positions of increasing responsibility with Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE), formerly Wyeth.  From January 2005 to April 2010, she held positions with Shire PLC (NASDAQ: SHPG), including serving as Senior Director, Regulatory Affairs. This included responsibilities as Therapeutic Area Head for Shire’s Gastrointestinal Business Unit, Regulatory Advertising & Promotion and CMC. Rockney led the regulatory team and negotiations with the FDA for LIALDA which are part of the drug class of aminosalicylates that are now part of the clinical standard-of-care for treating inflammatory bowel disease. LIALDA™ was found to be effective in Phase 3 trials for inducing remission of active mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis after eight weeks of treatment. LIALDA™ (also now marketed as Mezavant®) had 2016 U.S. sales of $714 million – up 16% relative to 2015 sales.

    Rockney’s work for Shire is of particular interest to Vitality Biopharma which has developed a new class of cannabinoid prodrugs (medications or compounds that, after administration, are converted within the body into a pharmacologically active drug), known as cannabosides, which upon ingestion can enable the selective delivery of THC and cannabidiol (CBD) to the gastrointestinal tract.

And as a bull market continues to lift all ships, Green Mountain’s ship is going to keep floating above the others.

    Green Mountain owns Keurig, the brand of beverage brewers that use self-contained K-Cups to make coffee, teas, and other drinks. While Keurig’s “fad” status has certainly helped tip the deck against GMCR, the fact remains that the firm has done most of the hard work in getting Keurig machines accepted by consumers. With brewers essentially ubiquitous at this point, the firm is able to make money on its cash cow: the K-Cups.

    Keurig’s individual-serving cups have big margins and a big installed base. With huge convenience and the relatively large sunk cost that consumers have put into their Keurig machines, it’s a sticky business with big switching costs. Consumers who buy a Keurig are much less likely to spend the money on a competing brand of proprietary coffee pods.

    I’ve said before that GMCR is far from cheap right now. But its momentum trajectory is showing few signs of fizzling out, especially as direct competitors such as Starbucks (SBUX) continue to sell K-Cups of their own. Don’t bet against GMCR in September – buy this Rocket Stock instead.

    But for short sellers in Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (Nasdaq: GMCR), there's another outcome: They've been badly burned as shares have surged, but they insist they've been right all along, and it's only a matter of time before the stock crashes and burns.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation(COG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Sterman]

    Take Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE: COG(link is external)) as an example. As I noted earlier this month(link is external), Cabot’s current drilling plans are expected to lead to a big spike in output over the next few years. The company’s executives decided to plow ahead with development plans, even as rivals were retrenching. The fact that natural gas prices have risen more than 10% in the past three weeks simply underscores the wisdom of that strategy, and could lead to rising sales and profit estimates.
