May 05, 2017 - This is a simple options trade that starts the day after The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) earnings and lasts for the one month to follow, that has been a winner for 3 straight years.
Jun 01, 2016 - While there are some amazing technologies proliferating, like streaming video on demand, or self-driving cars, none of these will actually change the world. But there is one movement, one technology that is the next step both in the communications revolution and the transportation revolution.
May 31, 2016 - While we could focus on the stunning news that Apple broke surrounding iPhone demand, we want to focus on a lesser known segment that in the future could in and of itself be a business line as large as the any bank in the world.
May 25, 2016 - The realm of self-driving cars is one of the most transformative and powerful themes in today's technological vernacular. While entirely self-driving vehicles are a ways off, the self-driving featured vehicle is here, right now and the growth forecasts are explosive. Here is the projected growth over the next few years:
May 23, 2016 - Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) stock is down 30% from its highs and it has gone from the best performing stock in the S&P 500 in 2013 and 2015, to an underachiever in 2016 rather quickly. While the company announced sweeping worldwide expansion, it has seen a drain on free cash flow to fund that expansion and a new round of competitors looking to dethrone it. But, data we received today proves, yet again, that there is one king of streaming video on demand (SVOD), and it's Netflix, without question.
May 23, 2016 - The headlines will have you believe Apple is dead and other than a handful of institutions like Goldman Sachs, RBC and Capital Market Laboratories (CML), Wall Street is yet again underestimating the demand for Apple's brand.
May 19, 2016 - Google held its annual I/O conference yesterday and while there was a lot of news, perhaps the largest overall theme was simply this: Google is getting serious about artificial intelligence and that investment has become pervasive in every product it is bringing to market.
May 18, 2016 - The headlines will have you believe Apple is dead and other than a handful of institutions like Goldman Sachs, RBC and Capital Market Laboratories (CML), Wall Street is yet again underestimating the demand for Apple's brand. But forget opinions, here is the simplest measure of the truth. We can do it together, and just skip Wall Street's bumbling.
May 17, 2016 - Last week we learned that Apple had invested $1 billion in "China's Uber," called Didi Chuxing. The move was more than investment in a gigantic ride sharing company, but also strategic in nature and one that reminded the entire world that the Apple Car is coming, it will have self-driving features, and it will be the next radical innovation that Apple introduces. But the news today goes further. Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL), which has had close ties with Uber in the past including a $250 million investment in 2013, has decided it's time to take that market down in the United States. Here is the breaking news:
May 16, 2016 - We just learned that Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) has plans to start its own competitor to Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTube. This news, of course, comes just days after we learned that Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) would be doing the same thing. The acts are not coincidence, and the interest in online video is a hyper focused war on what appears to be the single largest change in advertising the world has seen since the advent of the Television. But, this isn't about which mega cap tech is going to win the online video war. This is the opportunity so many investors say they welcome – say they search for. This is the opportunity to find the "Next Apple," or the "next Google." Friends, it's coming right now, and it lies in the depths of one of the great transformations we have seen in more than fifty years.
May 15, 2016 - Solar and other renewable energy is part of a considerable social and economic trend that is transforming not only the energy sector, but large portions of the global economy. The story of solar is at the intersection of technology, politics, popular culture, and entrenched industries. Time to shed some light on the companies trying to change the industry.
May 15, 2016 - It's coming. It's a colossal shift -- a fundamental change. It will impact almost everything: communication will be revolutionized, entertainment will explode, business structures will be transformed.
