The Newest NexGen Sensation

Apr 04, 2018

In today’s connected world, you can literally become an overnight success more easily than at any time in human history. Think about videos that go viral after someone posts them on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Even television news shows now have segments devoted to viral videos. The same is true of many NexGen mega-trends, including video gaming and eSports. A video game called Fortnite is getting most of the buzz in the videogame industry right now. It wasn’t literally an overnight sensation, but it has quickly become a phenomenon as a game that appeals to the both the hard-core gamers as well as the mainstream. Continue Reading…

BABA is Ready to Hit New Highs

Mar 31, 2018

Not many stocks can climb 70% in a year and still have upside potential, but Alibaba (BABA) is anything but average. The largest internet company in the world and e-commerce leader of China has its hands in most of the high-growth technology sectors around the globe, making it a stock you want to hold for the long term. The stock has held up well amid the recent pullbacks, and based on its current valuation BABA is poised for a breakout in the coming weeks. Given the increased volatility, there is a chance that it will hit $170 again before the next attempt beings, but that’s exactly why I recommend taking a longer-term approach. Continue Reading…

Best Stocks for 2018 Update: BR Outperforms the Broad Market

Mar 29, 2018

The first quarter has been a roller coaster for the market, with the broad indices suffering two corrections after having gone nearly two years without a pullback of 10%. The S&P 500 is down about 2% so far this year, but I’m pleased to report that my pick in the Best Stocks for 2018 contest has bucked the overall trend. Broadridge Financial (BR), through its technology, provides investor communications and other solutions to the financial sector. It’s one of the pioneers in its industry and stands to benefit greatly as blockchain changes the way financial business is conducted. Continue Reading…

Should You Buy Spotify?

Mar 28, 2018

I love music, and unless I’m in a meeting, chances are pretty good you’ll find me with my earphones plugged in listening while I work. It’s safe to say we are squarely in the next generation of music delivery, as the digital age means we can take it with us or stream it over the internet wherever we are. I’ve developed a deeper understanding of NexGen music – the good and the bad – since I moved to Nashville a couple of years ago. I find myself around both aspiring and extremely successful musicians, and it has been fascinating to learn just how much the music business has changed over the years with the advent of the iPod and streaming music services.

The Analysts Are Right About TDOC – It’s a Buy!

Mar 25, 2018

The healthcare sector, as measured by the Health Care Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLV), is down 1.5% so far in 2018, but even as the group as a whole struggles one of my favorite NexGen healthcare names is up more than 20%. Teladoc (TDOC) is the leader in the emerging telehealth industry and it’s consolidating after hitting a new all-time high on March 8. In the future, the days of spending hours in a doctor’s office only for them to tell you that you have a sinus infection and need some antibiotics will be non-existent. This type of visit will instead be done via telehealth platforms like the one TDOC provides. Continue Reading…

ANGI is an Analyst Favorite with Huge Upside

Mar 23, 2018

ANGI Homeservices (ANGI), which was formed when Angie’s List merged with HomeAdvisor, is the leader in the home services industry. The company has ties to several NexGen mega-trends that I expect will easily outpace the broader market growth in the years ahead. I think the biggest draw is the millennials, who are finally starting to buy more homes with family formation on the rise. One of the biggest downsides of being a homeowner is that there are constantly repairs and upgrades that need to be done. The millennial generation is all about technology and ease of use, and that’s exactly what ANGI provides. Continue Reading…

Buy That Stock – Oh, and Turn Off the Lights

Mar 21, 2018

I can sit here speaking these words into my smartphone and emailing them to my editor while getting a text that my laundry is finished, adjusting my home’s temperature, turning on the coffee machine and cleaning my house as I tell my robot vacuum cleaner to start earning his keep. All of this is possible because everything is connected to the internet – hence the aptly named NexGen mega-trend: the Internet of Things (IoT). Controlling everything from children’s toys to major systems in our home to cars that drive themselves is just scratching the surface. Industries are also incorporating this technology, as are utilities and entire cities. Continue Reading…

Buy TCEHY for Double-Digit Upside

Mar 19, 2018

You might never have heard of Tencent Holdings (TCEHY), or if you have it may only have been in reference to it becoming the first Chinese internet company worth more than half a trillion dollars last year. However, if you invest with me in my various NexGen newsletters, you know I’ve been a huge fan of this company for some time now. TCEHY is the largest internet company in China and the fifth largest in the world. What drew me here in the first place is the fact that it’s the biggest player in the eSports sector, which is one of the fastest-growing areas in technology and consumer goods. I also like that it has its toes in other NexGen industries. Continue Reading…

New Highs Are Around the Corner for BABA

Mar 17, 2018

Technology is a big part of NexGen investing as it is a theme that’s tied to nearly every sector in the market. There is huge potential here, and one of my favorite companies within the space is Alibaba (BABA), a half-trillion dollar company that is often referred to as China’s Amazon (AMZN) thanks to its Taobao online marketplace. Alibaba is much more than an e-commerce company, though and its valuation has yet to reflect that. It’s likely that Apple (AAPL) will be the first $1 trillion company, but I suspect several Chinese tech companies will be right on its tail. What makes BABA one of those contenders is its unique business model. Continue Reading…

The Opportunities – and Limits – of Artificial Intelligence

Mar 14, 2018

The term “artificial intelligence” (AI) sounds a little bit like something you might dismiss, doesn’t it? Why favor something artificial over the real thing? Dismissing AI would be a big mistake, especially when it comes to investing. At the same time, there are still some things we humans are better at – thank goodness – so you have to be aware of the limitations, too. AI is a growing topic on Wall Street, and it is one of my top NexGen mega-trends for the next decade and beyond. The upside potential is huge, and it’s definitely not too early to start making money on it. Continue Reading…
