    Jeb Bush's love of Apple products has been widely documented, and the Republican presidential candidate continues to wear his Apple Watch on the campaign trail.

Somehow Bush managed to take a call without picking up his iPhone, and the sound of a person’s voice saying hello breaks through the meeting noise, to which Bush responds, “My watch can’t be talking.”

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    A top Chinese official acknowledged on Friday that coronavirus is a deep challenge to the country, but defended Beijing's management of the epidemic while lashing out at the 'overreaction' of other countries.  In a wide-ranging interview with Reuters, State Councillor Wang Yi, who also serves as China's foreign minister, urged the United States not to take unnecessary virus-response measures that could hamper trade, travel and tourism.  The Chinese mainland has reported more than 63,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection, with over 1,300 fatalities.

  • 17/27   U.S. Stocks Fluctuate on Retail Sales, Virus Data: Markets Wrap
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. equities fluctuated after the release of steady if uninspiring figures for retail sales and as investors assessed contrasting data from China on how the coronavirus is spreading. Treasuries advanced.The S&P 500 Index swung between small gains and losses Friday amid lower-than-average volume. Energy firms and financials slipped, while investors crowded into havens like utilities and real estate. Chains including Walmart Inc. and Home Depot Inc. rose after U.S. retail sales climbed in January for a fourth straight month -- though the prior month’s gain was revised lower -- while consumer sentiment hit its highest since 2018.“As virus concerns continue to linger, and presumably will be a focal point in the near future, U.S. retail health is largely immune from the virus, so we likely won’t see any impact on this data, especially this early,” said Mike Loewengart, vice president of investment strategy at E-Trade Financial. “What’s really important for investors to remember is that fundamentals are strong and our economy still continues to grow -- debunking expectations of 2020 stagnation, at least for now.”Oil held above $51 a barrel in New York, and the dollar kept close to its level versus a basket of peers after the retail sales data. Gold gained and the yen held steady.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index closed lower Friday but was up for the week. The euro steadied near a 2017 low after data showed the region’s economy grew a scant 0.1% in the fourth quarter, matching forecasts. Major Asian equity markets climbed except for those in Tokyo and Mumbai.While Beijing reported a smaller increase in virus cases in the epicenter of Hubei versus the previous day, they were still more than before counting methodology was changed.

  • 19/27   Trump Aims for New York in Latest Salvo Against Clean Energy
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Federal regulators are set to make a decision on New York’s power market that could disrupt the state’s plans to reach its climate goals.The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has scheduled a meeting for Thursday to rule on a case filed by some generators who said the state’s policies were unfair because only clean-power producers received subsidies.In December, FERC changed rules in another market -- PJM Interconnection LLC, which stretches from Washington, D.C. to Chicago -- in a way that props up fossil-fuel generators. Given that action, speculation is now rising that New York’s efforts to support wind farms, solar panels and nuclear plants could be hobbled.“It would not surprise me if the commission does the same thing that they did to PJM,” said Paul Patterson, an analyst at Glenrock Associates LLC in New York. “Why not go after New York, too.”If that does happen, it would prove yet another win for U.S. President Donald Trump and his pro-fossil-fuel campaign. PJM -- which operates America’s biggest power market -- wants to overturn parts of FERC’s December decision that critics say will make clean energy more expensive and increase costs for consumers.Most of Trump’s efforts to revive the slumping coal industry have been thwarted by declining costs for renewable energy and state-level energy policies that increasingly favor carbon-free sources.But decisions that govern how electricity is bought and sold in wholesale markets are made at the federal level, giving Trump’s Republican majority at FERC levers to tip the scales toward fossil fuels. Chairman Neil Chatterjee, in what he described as an effort to level the playing field, is changing the way power plant owners are paid for some services.The PJM decision became a rallying cry for state’s rights and a threat to the wholesale market model, with Illinois, Maryland and New Jersey warning they may abandon the market that supplies power for 65 million people. Each of those states subsidize nuclear operations and want to increase renewable energy sources.New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has set a goal of eliminating carbon emissions from power plants by 2040.Mary O’Driscoll, a FERC spokeswoman, declined to comment on how the commission may rule on the case.

  • 20/27   Apple Accused by Ex-Exec It’s Suing of Poaching His Staff
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- A former Apple Inc. chip executive sued by the iPhone maker after he allegedly poached its employees for his new startup accuses the technology giant of doing the same to him.Gerard Williams III, who last year left his job as lead chip architect at Apple and co-founded Nuvia Inc., fired back with counter-claims against his former employer over its breach-of-contract lawsuit. He claims Apple tried to stop his firm from hiring its engineers while simultaneously recruiting staff from Nuvia.Apple’s lawsuit is designed “suffocate the creation of new technologies and solutions by a new business, and to diminish the freedom of entrepreneurs to seek out more fulfilling work,” according to a filing by Williams late Thursday in state court in San Jose, California.Williams failed in January to persuade a judge to dismiss Apple’s complaint accusing him of using company resources to create an idea for Nuvia in violation of a contractual agreement. The Cupertino, California-based company declined to comment on Williams’s latest filing.Read More: Apple Gains Footing in Court Feud With Ex-Executive Turned RivalNuvia is developing a chip to power cloud servers. Williams, who spent nearly a decade at Apple, says he raised the possibility of developing such technology years ago, but the idea was rejected by then-chief executive officer Steve Jobs, who died in 2011, and by Johny Srouji, who’s now Apple’s head of hardware technology, because they thought it would detract from the company’s work on consumer facing technology.After Nuvia launched, Apple’s vice president of silicon engineering Sribalan Santhanam warned of “consequences” if the startup continued hiring Apple engineers, according to Williams. He also alleges the iPhone maker monitored his conversations with Apple employees and that its human resources department used a “heavy-handed campaign” to keep staff from talking to him.Williams claims he’s maintained the appropriate distance with his former employer and colleagues since leaving.He says Apple went to great lengths to keep him from leaving, including an offer from Srouji for a six-month paid sabbatical to stay. At a going-away party, the company gave Williams a one-off iPad engraved with signatures from top Apple executives, according to the filing.The case is Apple Inc. v. Williams III, 19-cv-352866, California Superior Court, Santa Clara County (San Jose).(Updates with details from filing in fifth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Mark Gurman in Los Angeles at mgurman1@bloomberg.net;Ian King in San Francisco at ianking@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Glovin at dglovin@bloomberg.net, Peter Blumberg, Anthony LinFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

The Cupertino, California-based company declined to comment on Williams’s latest filing.Read More: Apple Gains Footing in Court Feud With Ex-Executive Turned RivalNuvia is developing a chip to power cloud servers. Williams, who spent nearly a decade at Apple, says he raised the possibility of developing such technology years ago, but the idea was rejected by then-chief executive officer Steve Jobs, who died in 2011, and by Johny Srouji, who’s now Apple’s head of hardware technology, because they thought it would detract from the company’s work on consumer facing technology.After Nuvia launched, Apple’s vice president of silicon engineering Sribalan Santhanam warned of “consequences” if the startup continued hiring Apple engineers, according to Williams. He also alleges the iPhone maker monitored his conversations with Apple employees and that its human resources department used a “heavy-handed campaign” to keep staff from talking to him.Williams claims he’s maintained the appropriate distance with his former employer and colleagues since leaving.He says Apple went to great lengths to keep him from leaving, including an offer from Srouji for a six-month paid sabbatical to stay. At a going-away party, the company gave Williams a one-off iPad engraved with signatures from top Apple executives, according to the filing.The case is Apple Inc. v. Williams III, 19-cv-352866, California Superior Court, Santa Clara County (San Jose).(Updates with details from filing in fifth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Mark Gurman in Los Angeles at mgurman1@bloomberg.net;Ian King in San Francisco at ianking@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Glovin at dglovin@bloomberg.net, Peter Blumberg, Anthony LinFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 21/27   3 “Strong Buy” Stocks Set for Monster Growth in 2020
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Let’s not beat about the bush. In a world gripped by uncertainty, one truth will always remain; investors want to know the best places to put their money. The tricky part is sifting through the thousands of stocks on offer in search of the golden tickets – the names which can maximize an investment over the long term.While there are numerous ways of going about it, a tried and tested path is to follow the lead of the experts. After all, the pros and the casual investor have the same goal in their sights – hefty returns.Bearing this in mind, we’ve used TipRanks’ Stock Screener tool to pull up three tickers which those in the know see the coming months providing plenty of upside – over 25% as it happens. What’s more, all three currently boast a Strong Buy consensus rating from the Street.Sequans Communications (SQNS)Micro-cap Sequans Communications is a developer and provider of 5G and 4G chips and modules for IoT devices and has a partnership in place with telecommunications giant Verizon. The network carrier recently launched Sequans’ products, Monarch Go and Monarch GPS, which enable the connection of IoT Devices to Verizon’s LTE Network in much faster speeds compared to previous modules. Verizon is the first carrier to certify the all-in-one modem components.The company also delivered its Q4 earnings earlier this week and Needham’s Rajvindra Gill is impressed with the print. The 5-star analyst notes the chipmaker has taken major steps to improve its ability to bring its devices to market. Additionally, with new contracts with 2 large distributors, Avnet and RFPD, Gill expects the distribution channels to be key in targeting a massive, yet fragmented, IoT market.The 5-star analyst said, “SQNS delivered stronger than expected Q4 sales and grew 25% Q/Q due to a significant increase in services revenue from the $35MM strategic deal they signed in Q4. The company expects $8MM of sales from this deal in 2020 and ~$10MM/year in the following 2 years. Moreover, SQNS continued to experience strong traction in Cat M/NB, benefiting from the ongoing ramp of Monarch SiP coupled with a win at a large metering company… We continue to expect SQNS to benefit from the ramp in Cat M/NB, broadband stabilization, and strong long-term growth in vertical markets.”Gill, therefore, keeps his Buy rating intact. The positive print has caused him to boost his price target - from $6 to $7. The new figure implies potential upside of a rousing 27.5%. (To watch Gill’s track record, click here)What does the rest of the Street think? It turns out that they wholeheartedly agree with Gill. With 4 Buy ratings and no Holds or Sells, the message is clear: SQNS is a Strong Buy. If that wasn’t enough, the $8.81 average price target puts the upside potential at 60%. (See Sequans stock analysis on TipRanks)Callaway Golf Company (ELY)Callaway Golf Company enjoyed a healthy 2019, but has seen a slight decline to the share price since the turn of the year. While the stock beat the overall market with a strong 33% gain in 2019, so far in 2020 it is down by 11%. Yet, Wall Street analysts see the stock decline as a buying opportunity.The sporting goods company uses a very 21st century approach in the design of its golfing equipment. Callaway has been using artificial intelligence and machine learning in the new designs of its golf clubs, a strategy that has been paying off; it has taken top position in every category of clubs for 2020 in the industry’s benchmark publication, Golf Digest.While the company’s recent earnings report was a mixed bag, B.Riley FBR’s Susan Anderson remains a staunch fan. The analyst notes that the golf specialist outperformed in all segments, while exhibiting strong growth in all regions, too - sales growth increased year-over-year by 72.7%, beating the estimate’s call for growth of 69.1%.Anderson said, “ELY continues to outperform in its core golf equipment segment, which increased +35.6% in 4Q and +7.1% for FY19, driven by innovative new product such as the Epic Forged irons, MDS Jaws wedges, and Stroke Lab putters. We expect ELY's transformation of its business with its recent apparel/outdoor acquisitions, synergies across businesses, and new market expansion will drive growth above the overall golf business over the next several years.”As a result, Anderson reiterates a Buy rating on Callaway shares, along with a $30 price target. Should the target be met, investors will be pocketing a 55% gain over the next year. (To watch Anderson’s track record, click here)The Street is with the B.Riley analyst. 7 buy ratings coalesce into a Strong Buy consensus rating. The analysts average price target of $26 implies 34% upside for the golf club designer over the next 12 months. (See Callaway Golf stock analysis on TipRanks)Lyft Inc (LYFT)Part of the worry for investors in the disruptive ride sharing category is on the new players’ road to profitability. Lyft has been focusing on an alternative approach to its ride share rival Uber. While Uber has been diversifying in various directions – Uber eats, Uber freight, international expansion – Lyft has solely been concentrating on its ride sharing business in the US.The company recently posted its 4Q19 earnings report, with beats across the board. Revenue of $1.02 billion beat the estimate’s $984.1 million. Estimates called for a loss of $0.53 per share, while Lyft reported a loss per share of $0.41. Active riders of 22.9 million (up 23% year-over-year) slightly beat the Street’s estimate of 22.8 million. Revenue per active rider came in at $44.40 (an increase of 23% year-over-year) vs. the $43.19 expectation on the Street.Investors, though, were left disappointed by rising costs and expenses for 2019, which more than doubled from $3.1 billion to $6.3 billion. Additionally, unlike Uber, which projects profitability by the end of the year, Lyft expects to turn a profit by the end of 2021.Nevertheless, Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives noted “Lyft delivered another strong quarter with all metrics above consensus”. The 5-star analyst further said, “Despite shares down on the print before the conference call we view this as a continuation of Lyft delivering across the board strength every quarter since it's become a public company… This quarter is another step in the right direction for Lyft and rideshare space in general and we think should support continued share performance, estimate upside, and multiple expansion coming out of the results.”Bottom line, then? Ives maintains an Outperform rating on Lyft, alongside a price target of $75. Should the figure be met, investors can expect a 67% gain over the coming year. (To watch Ives’ track record, click here)The rest of the Street is in agreement. A Strong Buy consensus rating breaks down onto 21 Buys and 5 holds. At $68.45, the average price target indicates potential upside of 52%. (See LYFT stock analysis on TipRanks)
