TSM Stock Forecast: Raise Your Winning Bets On Taiwan Semiconductor

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:

  • Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s stock has a 1-year price return of more than 38%.
  • I’m still endorsing TSM as a buy. The recent out of court settlement with GlobalFoundries insured that chip foundry customers of Taiwan Semiconductor have nothing to worry about.
  • Smartphone sales are peaking but stronger PC shipments is a tailwind for Taiwan Semiconductor.
  • The absence of competition from GlobalFoundries is a tailwind for TSM.
  • Next year’s rollout of 5-nm process will increase TSM’s chip manufacturing lead over Intel and Samsung.

    Winning DHX Stock Forecast: Ongoing Strategic Divestures are Adding Values for DHI Group’s Core Business

    “We are pleased with the outcome of this transaction, as it helps us concentrate on our core strategy of bringing relevant career opportunities to tech professionals and qualified technology talent to employers.”

    – Art Zeile, President and CEO of DHI Group, Inc.

     

    DHI Group Inc. (NYSE: DHX) is a leading online career resource and talent acquisition platform for technology professionals and other select professional communities in the U.S. and internationally. On June 1, the company’s shares experienced a jump of 34.78% up to $3.25 before closing at $3.10. A total of 1,890K shares exchanged hands during the intra-day trade contrast with its average trading volume of 636K. On May 27, I Know First algorithm issued a bullish 7-day forecast for DHX to June. The forecast illustrated a signal of 53.53 and a predictability of 0.16.  In accordance with this bullish forecast, DHX stock returned 67.57% over this time horizon, highlighting the accuracy of I Know First’s prediction.

    DHI Group’s rally after being in a downtrend since last June may be the result of announcing the sale of HCareers, its hospitality job board. The transaction closed on May 23 and was about $16.5 million in cash. Consistent with the company’s stated capital allocation strategy, DHI will use the proceeds to reduce the balance on its revolving credit facility, support strategic initiatives and deliver potential capital return to shareholders. This sale, following another sale of its health job site, HealthECareers.com in December, is strictly in accordance with its plan to concentrate on service for technology professionals by divesting four of its non-tech businesses. Up to this month, DHI Group has completed two of its four previously announced divestures. Hopefully it could free the company to reinvest its core tech-focused business and build a more unified organization.

    Nvidia Stock Forecast: Why You Should Add More Nvidia Shares

    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

    Walmart Share Price Forecast

    Summary:

    • Nvidia’s Q1 FY2019 ER was outstanding. It beat Wall Street’s EPS and revenue estimates. The EPS of $2.05 beats by $0.39.
    • The Q1 FY 2019 of $3.21 billion (+65.5% year-over-year) beats by $310 million.
    • In spite of this excellent earnings report, NVDA still dipped by more than 2.5%. This cynical reaction is uncalled for.
    • My takeaway is that long-term growth investors should add more NVDA. This stock has more upside potential based on it one-year algorithmic market trend forecast.
    • The company’s  runaway leadership in datacenter GPU accelerators and self-driving car processors makes Nvidia a guaranteed long-term winner.

    Intel Stock Prediction

    • ReactOS is an open-source operating system for x86/x64 computers. ReactOS is being developed to run Windows-centric software at native hardware level.
    • Independent programmers are developing ReactOS from the ground-up. It is legal and Microsoft can do nothing about it.
    • The most recent Alpha version of ReactOS now supports Windows NT6+ software. It means ReactOS is now compatible with software made for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 10.
    • ReactOS is an optimized operating system than can even run on old computers with RAM as little as 96 megabytes. Intel can use ReactOS to start promoting Windows-like smartphones.
