  • If You Think Intel Is Dead Money, Think Again

    It was almost a flat year for Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) in 2016, as the stock was up roughly 5 percent over the year. In comparison, most of the Intel’s competitors such as Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Qualcomm (QCOM), and NVIDIA (NVDA) delivered huge returned to the stockholders. However, that does not means Intel is out of the game, as it still holds 80 percent market share in the worldwide microprocessor market mainly due to its leading position in the PC industry.

    The company has been generating huge profits by selling high-end desktop processing chips to data centers. It is highly likely that CPUs will endure to see reasonable growth in data centers, as the company require huge computation power to make use of big data they have gathered.

  • 3 Great Stocks for Your 2017 Core Investment Portfolio

    As expected, once again, the markets didn’t crash in 2016. In a year when energy prices remained flat, terrorism spread throughout Europe and the Middle East, Britain voted to exit the European Union, the dollar spiked supressing exports, Donald Trump surprised the world being elected president, and the Cleveland Cavaliers finally won the NBA Championship, the markets’ winning streak continued. That is, the stock markets— in the U.S. and Canada anyways—forged ahead again, even more strongly for some indexes than last year.

    That said, those of you who follow our stock picks will know that our core stock picks beat the market by about 3% last year, excluding the impact of dividends. Based on our market-based and fundamentals-based market timing indicators, we once again bet that the broad market winning streak would continue. We were really hoping for a market drop as we were well positioned to take advantage of a down market, but it didn’t happen.

  • 2018 Will Be IBM CEO Ginni Rometty’s Year of Vindication

    IBM (NYSE:IBM) reported strong fourth quarter earnings, beating analyst estimates, and also raised its full year earnings guidance for 2017. IBM reported fourth quarter revenues of $21.77 billion with earnings of $5.01 per share, while the market was expecting $21.66 billion and earnings of $4.88 per share. Despite the beat, this was the 19th consecutive quarter of earnings decline for Big Blue.

    The good news for IBM investors was that the company’s strategic imperatives, which includes forward-looking business lines such as Analytics, Cloud and Security, accounted for a little more than 40% of IBM’s overall revenue in 2016. This growing part of the business has not yet reached a position where it can offset the losses the company is facing from its legacy lines. But if the segment continues on its current growth trajectory, that will change within the next eight quarters.


  • PayPal Aiming to Dominate Global Payments

    There are four top players in the payments industry: Visa (NYSE:V), Mastercard (NYSE:MA), American Express (NYSE:AXP) and PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL). Visa is the largest payments processing company in the world, Mastercard has been keeping as close as it possibly can to Visa and American Express serves the high-end customers in the credit card industry. PayPal seems to be the odd one out in this group, but it has the most unique offering.

    How did PayPal grow this big?


  • Why Barrick Gold Is a Long Term Pick

    Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX) performed amazingly well in 2016, as the stock almost doubled in 2016. Moreover, the stock is off to a decent start this year, as the gold price is also displaying strong upward momentum. Since Donald Trump was elected, the dollar has been strengthening, which is obviously a bad sign for gold stocks.

    However, Barrick Gold is arguably the most cost-efficient among all the gold miners. The gold miner abridged its all-in sustaining cost (AISC) estimate multiple times in 2016, with the midpoint of its forecast now at $760 per ounce, $449.70 per ounce less than the prevailing gold price.
