  • Markets Prepare for Rising Interest Rates

    Markets Prepare for Rising Interest Rates

    After raising the interest rates by 25 bps after almost a decade in December 2015, the Federal Reserve kept the rates unchanged at their September meeting. While the Fed ultimately believed that the activity in the world’s largest economy continues to strengthen, dovish members with voting power were not looking to rush with rate hikes as there continues to be upside risks if markets are not prepared for the next steps in monetary policy. This is why investors should compare a broad variety of the best personal loans options that are currently available in the market, as lending scenarios are likely to see some changes in the coming months.

  • Could Guru Investors Be Wrong on Comcast?

    Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) seems to be a placeholder position for a large number of big money managers. Funds run by Donald Yacktman, Jim Simons, George Soros, Joel Greenblatt, Ken Fisher, Mario Gabelli and Jeremy Grantham are just a few of the long list of names in the stock.

    Rightly so. Comcast has built a stellar business by making investments within a largely monopolistic industry, cable and Internet providers. Through more than 150,000 full-time employees, the company dominates the media landscape and has enough money to throw around speculative bets like $200 million on Buzzfeed – that’s what it brings in net every 10 days.


  • Why NVIDIA Still Has Massive Upside Potential

    NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) has managed to surpass the expectations of even the most optimistic bulls as the stock has continued moving higher.

The company’s graphics cards business is growing after the launch of its new Pascal architecture.

    NVIDIA’s foremost rival, Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), also launched its new Polaris architecture to compete against NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture, but it seems like NVIDIA has taken a lead over Advanced Micro Devices in this race. Initially, Advanced Micro Devices strategized to place its emphasis on the mainstream market, launching its new RX 480 card for $199.

  • Baron Funds Comments on Foundation Medicine Inc.

    Foundation Medicine, Inc. (NASDAQ:FMI)(“FMI”) is a diagnostic lab company that specializes in analyzing the DNA sequence of the most complex cancers. It uses next generation genetic sequencing to find over 300 relevant cancer genes. On top of this, its information technology platform links pharmaceutical companies with oncologists and scientific research. Roche Holdings announced a broad strategic relationship with FMI in January 2015, buying over 50% of FMI’s shares at $50 per share. Included in the various agreements with Roche are plans to co-market FMI’s tests overseas, develop additional high value tests, and use Roche’s U.S. sales force to educate medical professionals about the advantages of FMI’s technology. We believe FMI is well positioned to take share in the emerging multi-billion dollar complex cancer diagnostics market.


  • Baron Funds Comments on Netflix Inc.

    We added to our long-term Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) position during the quarter, at what we believed was an attractive price, as the stock fell on weaker-than-expected second quarter net subscriber adds. We have followed and/or been an investor in Netflix since its IPO, and have witnessed that its quarterly subscriber metrics are very difficult to predict and fluctuate for many reasons, including things like the Olympics, price increases and the timing of exciting content going live. We retain high conviction in our thesis that the way people watch TV is undergoing a major disruption from legacy time-based networks to on-demand streaming, and that Netflix will be a winner in this shift. Here is a quote from the CEO of one of the world’s most valuable media companies: “We are seeing change in media, and it’s mostly powered by technology. It’s powered by the shift that technology has created away from the distributor and the producer to the consumer. The consumer has much more authority than ever before to decide what they want to watch, when they want to watch, where they want to watch it; even how much they pay for it. We are already seeing that in so many other ways. Just think about Amazon and … Netflix as another example. It’s just a changing world and … We are not going to be able to stop it.” Guess who said it? Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO of Disney, at Fortune’s Brainstorm Tech conference earlier this year. We agree with Bob.
