(A Top Pick May 17/17. Up 17%.) With the Equifax problems, digital and online security has been foremost in most minds now. This company has invested heavily in security, a major factor for them. Everything is shifting to online now, with less and less cash being used.

Hold or Sell? Within biotech and picking a single name, this company would be the way to do it. They are more diversified. They’ve had a few good quarters in a row beating earnings, and are still only trading at 14-16 levels. Putting up pretty good growth. Now that we are more comfortable with interest rates not going to the moon, that takes off the risk, opening up the door to make this more investable.

Disney (DIS-N) or Comcast (CMCSA-Q)? Both fall into the media space, which is particularly challenged right now. The sector is fighting headwinds. He is more positive on Disney, but it has been struggling. With cord cutting, re-bundling, etc. you are fighting the tide, so he would prefer Comcast. However, in the space as a whole, he would prefer not to fight the headwinds.

Looking at a long-term chart, you can see the bleed, especially over a longer than a 1-year timeframe. They’ve had a very mixed quarterly performance. This is ultimately going to fall into that trap where you are facing a wall of people who have been buying it all the way down, and you are going to be meeting those people who are selling on the way up. The kind of situation he would step out of if he were in it.

Makes great gear, but you need to separate a stock from a product, a company or a management. This is down 53% in one year. They beat on the last quarter, but took down gross margin in the full-year guidance.

It is tough to not like on what they have done in one year. Semis have been phenomenal, and this company has been right in there. It has consolidated more in the last little while. He got a little more cautious on tech a number of months ago, when it started to break down on the relative. However, semis have really come on and the numbers are looking okay. He would have a hard time arguing against this one. However, the valuation is tough, which is what would trip him up. He would prefer an ETF that replicates the stocks, and give you a basket approach.
