What the New Phones Mean for Your GOOGL Shares

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The folks at Google did a press event yesterday in San Francisco in order to announce their latest hardware: new Pixel smartphones, upgraded laptops, a bunch of smart-home products, and even AI-powered wearable cameras. (Those were… odd.)

But will any of it “move the needle” for shares of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL)? That’s doubtful, I told the CNBC World audience last night. That’s because, as I said, “Google is not a hardware company.”

So if Google is not attempting to take on smartphone makers like Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (OTC: SSNLF), what is it up to here?

Western Digital’s late bid on Toshiba’s chip unit complicates the already troubled former electronics giant just ahead of a key shareholders’ meeting. Even with a sale, Toshiba might not remain solvent into 2019. Its operations, turnaround plan, and very identity going forward remain unconvincing.

Yesterday’s big tech news was Apple Inc.’s reveal of HomePod.

Michael let us know what he thinks last night on CNBC World. Check it out by clicking here.

Cisco’s Defensive Moves Are No Cure-All

1 | By Strategic Tech Investor Staff

It hurts when the technology you built your business on starts to drag you down. And that’s just what’s happening at Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), which reported a 2.6% drop in quarterly revenue last week. The drop came from lessening demand for Cisco’s switches, its chief legacy product. Cisco does have a restructuring plan, however, including cost cuts, layoffs, strategic acquisitions, and repositioning itself toward a cloud model.

Not so fast, Michael told CNBC World listeners late last week. “You can’t cut your way to growth,” he says. And moving a hardware-based business to the cloud is going to cost a lot more and take a lot longer than anyone else thinks. Michael graded Cisco’s quarterly report a “C to C- quarterly” – and so it’s not on his “Buy” list right now. What legacy tech business also reorienting itself toward the cloud model is?

Sony Corp. (NYSE ADR: SNE) just downgraded its earnings expectations for the fiscal year, but during a recent appearance on CNBC World, Michael said that’s no reason to write off the stock. First off, the lowered guidance is thanks to a onetime write-down thanks to the sale of Sony’s battery unit. And this is “truly a onetime,” Michael told CNBC World’s viewers.

But the real reason Michael is keeping an eye on Sony – which gained 61% between early February and mid-October – is what it’s got planned for holiday shoppers. He explains all in this video…

Why You Saw Samsung’s PR Disaster Coming

0 | By Strategic Tech Investor Staff

Early this year, Michael called Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. a “Tech Turkey” – putting it on a list of stocks to avoid in 2016. Michael’s not one too brag (too much), so we’ll do it for him.

Fast-forward till now – after Samsung’s fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 smartphone disaster – and he looks pretty prescient. Michael appeared on CNBC World earlier this week to discuss Samsung’s public-relations mess – and what it means for that company’s finances and the rest of South Korea’s tech leaders. Take a look….
