motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology  – Senior Analyst at I Know First

Summary:

  • Budget phone leader Xiaomi is very important to Qualcomm’s future. Xiaomi is always the early-bird proponent of Qualcomm’s flagship mobile processors.
  • Xiaomi’s willingness to sell affordable iPhone-like Android  phones with flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon processors is why it is now the world’s number 4 vendor.
  • Xiaomi shipped out 31.9 million smartphones in Q2 2018 – 48.8% higher year-over-year. The recent launch of the $300 Snapdragon 845-powered Pocophone F1 should help Xiaomi maintain this momentum.
  • Other leading phone vendors like Oppo, Vivo, and Meizu will likely use Snapdragon 845 for their own $300 - $350 Android phones.
  • The NXP deal is dead. Qualcomm needs to sell more processors and modems. The more companies using Snapdragon 845, the better it is for Qualcomm’s bottomline.

3D Stock Forecast (NASDAQ: DDD): 3D Systems Can Breach $30

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology  – Senior Analyst at I Know First

Summary:

  • The stock price of 3D Systems has more than doubled since my last buy rating for it last February 23. I still endorse this stock as a buy.
  • My fearless forecast is that DDD can hit $30 within the next 12 months. Additive manufacturing’s gradual shift from prototyping to production applications is a long-term tailwind for 3D Systems.
  • The 2018 Wohlers Report revealed that the 3D printing industry grew 21% to $7.3 billion in 2017. Sales of 3D-printed parts from independent service bureaus contributed $2.995 billion.
  • I Know First’s AI still gives DDD a bullish one-year algorithmic market trend forecast.

Intel Stock Forecast (NASDAQ: INTC): Intel’s Latest Mobile Processors Should Mitigate Threat From AMD

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology  – Senior Analyst at I Know First

Summary:

  • Intel has unveiled its connectivity-focused 8th-generation processors for laptop and 2-in-1 notebook/tablet products. They should help address the rising threat from AMD.
  • More laptops/tablets/2-in-1s are shipped out annually. Intel therefore has compelling reasons to keep competitive against AMD’s Ryzen Pro mobile processors.
  • Intel’s Whiskey Lake-U and Amber Lake can offer up to 16 hours battery life. They come with integrated gigabit Wi-Fi or LTE connectivity, and Thunderbolt 3 and Optane memory support.
  • An LTE-enabled 5W dual-core Amber Lake-Y should be perfect for Microsoft’s dying Cellular PC campaign. It certainly can compete against Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850.
  • I Know First has slight negative near-term forecasts for INTC. I still believe this stock is a good buy for long-term investors who value solid fundamentals/moat of Intel.

Autodesk Stock Forecast: Autodesk Can Shoot Up To $200

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology  – Senior Analyst at I Know First

Summary:

  • The 15.3% one-day in Autodesk’s surge post-earnings validated my May 2018 call for investors to raise their bets on this company.
  • Like Adobe before it, Autodesk is eventually going to reap stronger cash flow and profitability from going full-bore on software subscription.
  • Autodesk only went all-out on software subscription last June 2017. As of July 31, 2018, Autodesk now touts 2.86 million software subscribers.
  • All or most of Autodesk’s customers will likely switch to subscription. Subscription will turn out to be more cost effective than perpetual license maintenance contracts.
  • Autodesk’s stock has a very bullish 12-month algorithmic forecast from I Know First. I Know First’s AI has a great history of correctly predicting one-year performance of ADSK.

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology  – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Adobe is working on releasing a full version of Photoshop for the iPad next year.
  • This should help boost sales of Apple’s iPad and iPad Pro products. The iPad business is still a massive $4.74 billion/quarter for Apple.
  • The introduction of iPad Pro has helped Apple remain the leader in tablet sales. Adobe making the iPad more useful is very important development.
  • Aside from increased iPad hardware sales, Apple can profit from its 30%/15% cut from the $9.99/month subscription fee of Adobe Photoshop.
  • The one-year algorithmic market trend forecast for AAPL is very bullish. This stock still deserves a buy.
