The 3 Best Tech Stocks to Buy in a Post-Vaccine World

If you've been following the logic of the markets lately, it's telling us a coronavirus vaccine is bad news for tech stocks.

The Dow rallied over 1,000 points on the news that Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) has announced its COVID-19 vaccine is more than 90% effective.

But the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down 2% on the week.

Many stay-at-home stocks like Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM) and Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ: PTON) stumbled on the news and are down double digits on the hopes of returning to normal life.

Zoom plunged over 25% by mid-week.

Many have compared the current run in tech stocks to the Dot-com bubble.

Excessive speculation on internet companies drove share prices up until the market peaked in early 2000, then the whole thing came crumbling down.

I'm here to tell you this is not the case today.

Far from it.

And it's giving us the opportunity to invest in some of the best tech stocks on the planet for absurd discounts.



TV Is Dead, Long Live Connected TV (Part 2): A Generational Pick-and-Shovel Play

The streaming wars are raging, and investors are starting to sense the opportunity behind this exciting trend.

Netflix Inc.

(NASDAQ: NFLX), Walt Disney Co.'s (NYSE: DIS) Disney Plus, Hulu, Apple Inc.'s (NASDAQ: AAPL) Apple TV Plus, Comcast Corp.'s (NASDAQ: CMCSA) Peacock, and Viacom's (NASDAQ: VIAC) CBS All Access are just a few of the many connected TV (CTV) services vying for supremacy.

Will Disney Plus take away business from Netflix? Will Apple put more weight behind Apple TV Plus? Does Comcast go all in on Peacock? I admit, I would like to know the answer to these questions, but without a crystal ball, no one can tell the future.

But one thing I do know is that CTV is here to stay.

It has been made clear by the companies I've just listed.



TV Is Dead, Long Live Connected TV (Part 1): The Leading Streaming Stock

According to market research firm OnePoll, three in four people are using more streaming services since the coronavirus came to the U.S and the average person has logins to four streaming services.

But this is only the tip of the iceberg as the industry rapidly evolves.

Netflix's 80% jump since March attests to that.

But despite the continued cord-cutting, millions of households still turn on the cable box and watch traditional TV.

And this first company I'm looking at has racked up millions of users with billions of viewing hours...


Markets Live Recap: Nasdaq Hits Another Record High Thanks to These Tech Stocks

The WorldWide Developers Conference has certainly been a tailwind for tech stocks as the Nasdaq Composite hit another all-time high today.

Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) lead the way (the latter two also hit record highs).

Since everyone knows about the moves in these mega-cap tech stocks, our experts – D.R. Barton, Jr. and Shah Gilani – gave advice on some other names.

Markets Live Recap: Why Stocks Rallied to End the Week

The Dow jumped 260 points (1.1%) to close the week as oil extended its rebound from the negative $40 levels it touched Tuesday.

The June 2020 crude oil contracts are now trading for about $17, which is $53 higher than the -$40 number posted earlier in the week.

Despite the rebound, it's still down about 43% over the past two weeks.

Investors also weighed the possibility of Gilead Science Inc.'s (NASDAQ: GILD) new drug Remdesivir treating coronavirus patients.

It's to be seen whether it will be effective for the mass population or not…

Here's what our experts – Chris Johnson, Tom Gentile, D.R. Barton, Jr., and Shah Gilani – saw as we closed out another volatile week on Wall Street.



Follow These Rules to Profit from This "Trading Range" Market as Earnings Come Out

My glasses almost fell off my face Monday night when I read this headline from Bloomberg

"ETF Investors Are All-In on Stimulus with $17 Billion Stock Bet"…

That's right. Investors have pumped more than $16.5 billion into stock exchange-traded funds in just seven trading days in April.

The article stated that the "torrid" pace put inflows on track to exceed December's monthly inflow total of $42.5 billion.

Talk about a crowded trade…

What's happening right now is a toxic combination of analysts saying, "The bottom's been put in!" and also, "Buy the dips!"

Yes, you can start to buy in. Slowly. Use dollar-cost averaging and buy in increments.

But going all in… Well, there's a reason the great Wayne Gretzky said to skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been…

That's exactly why the last time I saw this happening, in December, I bought puts. And they paid off heavily in January and February, such as my 47.87% January gain on FedEx and my 108.57% February gain on Tilray.

The truth of this market is that there's still too much uncertainty, fundamentals are questionable, and technicals are pointing to the downside.

This type of long bet – with people throwing money into the market with coal shovels because it's been climbing for a few weeks- tells me one thing: We're still in the first stage of the market pullback.

So instead of going all in, you trade. Just like I did before. And when you follow these trading rules, you can profit… Full Story
