Stocks To WATCH or Stocks To BUY – January 2018 – BLOCKCHAIN

hello everyone and thanks for tuning
into the financial investor channel my
name is Brent and I’m excited today to
be giving you guys these stocks to watch
or stocks to buy in January 2018 and
last month stocks pics were amazing you
know CenturyLink AT&T Verizon Comcast
they all did great and December
CenturyLink was one of my ones I had
held I believe it won for the month over
14 15 percent in my portfolio it did
recover quite a bit from what I had lost
but it was a great pick if you guys had
added it to your portfolio
along with AT&T and Verizon and Comcast
they all did really well this month so
January 2018 and beyond I will be
talking about a few companies pertaining
to blockchain technology and as a
dividend investor I will be focused on
you know dividend paying stocks so I
will be covering a few here I did post
on my Facebook page if you guys follow
my Facebook page I talked a little bit
about you know I’ll be looking at
Walmart IBM and I posted a few articles
I’ve also deep dived into this a little
bit more you know I enjoy technology
that’s my field I’m an engineer so I’m
looking at ways now how technology you
know will work right now and in the
future you know I invest very heavily in
technology if you look at my stock picks
I do all sorts of Technology f3 Telecom
I have like five or six different tech
companies so I’m very involved in
technology and going forward in 2018 I
believe blockchain will be huge just
look at 2017 many companies have began
to take advantage of blockchain crypto
currencies has jumped into the media
attention so we’re gonna be starting off
this video by talking about what is
blockchain and what companies will be
using blockchain so first of all
blockchain it was introduced back in o8
as the basis for crypto currencies such
as Bitcoin but it became much more an
eventually blockchain is starting to
become the backbone of the new type of
the Internet for the future
and the main principle behind blockchain
is it’s a digital cloud database that
offers transparency it also uses
computer logic to make operations
automated and computer fast so if you
know it’s all kept on the cloud there’s
no physical form of this thing that
means that if you if you order a product
a service is stored this information
stored in the actual computer code and
when that you know when the item is
delivered the payments is made the
system automatically recognizes
everything for you and recognizes the
transaction and changes the ownerships
rights for you you know it’s very fast
very quick and it’s a you know people or
companies are going to be moving to this
technology because it’s a way to be very
secure blockchain itself
crypto currencies you know they’re said
to be unhackable so a couple financial
stocks buried recovering as GS ticker
symbol GS its Goldman Sachs and JP m is
the ticker symbol for JP Morgan or
Chase’s what many people would call them
so both of these companies have been
looking you know they’ve been knocking
calling Bitcoin itself fraud but the
actual technology behind blockchain is
what they’re looking to incorporate into
their businesses so JP Morgan has poured
an enormous amount of resources into
blockchain research and I’ve actually
partnered up with digital asset Holdings
the few of the cryptocurrencies
pertaining to the financial sector would
be Ripple and it is a digital asset that
uses XRP and while ripple doesn’t rely
on Bitcoin it does uses again its own
digital asset which is called XRP I’m
not gonna be deep diving into X RP or
ripple because I believe a lot of you
know a lot of other made me that into a
whole nother video I mean I believe that
ripple will be one of the stronger ones
in the future I’m looking at Bitcoin too
Napster and Kazaa as you know as an
early player bitcoins
an8 you know there’s much better
technologies coming out here Ripple
what’s ripple primarily used for you
know ripple itself is for customers with
settlements they can take 3 to 4 seconds
and it’s a two-way messaging system that
can see the account number matches and
the intended recipient and then it sends
the messages back and forth and then
when the payment is arrived at the
destination the information drives down
sends a notification to both sides and
then this whole system it just drives
down the error rates in issues that
could take place when sending
transactions it’s also lightning speed
when getting involved in banking so a
lot of these banking companies will
begin to you know invest and use
blockchain for their financial systems a
couple technologies act companies will
be Microsoft they do there is our cloud
Microsoft has already created a special
team to conduct blockchain research and
support collaboration
additionally Microsoft does offer a
black blockchain as a service and it’s a
solution to help corporations build
their own systems on the basis of
Microsoft Azure cloud service so again
this is a cloud database up and it’s
using lightning speed you know super
fast super reliable and so those are the
five stocks we have Goldman Sachs JP
Morgan Microsoft IBM and Intel so really
quickly we’re gonna be taking a look you
know this is IBM’s website here they’re
already talking a little bit about
blockchain solutions like technology my
left thought up here for a while so you
guys could probably scan it over while I
was just kind of chatting away this was
another article that I had posted on my
facebook that talks about how IBM and
stellar are launching their own
blockchain technology banking across
multiple countries Walmart is doing some
little they’re using blockchain over in
China to verify and their items you know
their products what’s in storage what’s
dinosaurs what was purchased all this is
done very lightning fast and this
article kind of goes on to cover a
couple banking sectors such as stellar
and kind of goes into ways that we could
replace it you know a bit Pisa which
relies on Bitcoin network to replace
traditional wire transfer so you know
they’re already started to make them
move across from you know using
blockchain and Bitcoin has a way of
verifying its that so this is another
good article here this is good stock of
invest I was taking a look through this
one this kind of covers a lot of what I
had talked about what blockchain is it
also goes in to talk a little bit about
Microsoft IBM and Intel and they have
all made significant progress into the
adoption and development and kind of
like you know Microsoft’s again this
talks a little bit about their Microsoft
Azure cloud service until they begin
certainly kind of getting involved in
and talks later about how they’re
planning it to use it towards our Linux
system and such and their IBM cloud
service and kind of offer different
services off of that for other users to
you know get involved in that way and
then Intel they’re starting to kind of
take on their own strategy on how to
enter the blockchain technology I think
they’re a little bit behind IBM I
believe Microsoft was the first one IBM
and then you know Intel coming in there
about three tech companies beginning to
take advantage of blockchain now there
isn’t a lot of information out there
whether Apple or Google are beginning to
take advantage of this but I believe
that if they did it would benefit them
all just in regards to safety you know
it’s more secure a couple other articles
I’ll have all of these in the
description below I have taken on read
you know read through them but I’m not
going to be covering them all because
that’ll make the video incredibly long
and I would rather just kind of cover
the the five stocks themselves if they
are great stocks to buy in 2015 so what
did I click on the barons so we’re gonna
go ahead and punch in these tickers and
take a look at whether their stock is
good at this current time for January or
if we could wait a little bit so the
first ticker it was Goldman Sachs then
we have JP M which is JP Morgan followed
right behind my Microsoft IBM and Intel
now I already own Microsoft and not that
one what is that Intel so I will
primarily be taking a look at whether to
add IBM goldman sachs or JP Morgan I
don’t have any financial companies
currently in my portfolio I did sell off
my New York Community Bancorp so let’s
go ahead and begin with goldman sachs
now first thing I like to take a look at
the price to yield ratio and take a look
at the price how it’s jumped in the last
year in comparison to its yield you can
see for the most part during 2017 it was
doing the tea cup method where had
fallen down into the man
215 dollar range 210 dollar range that’s
still quite high for new investors so if
you are looking to get involved in the
financial sector with that taken
advantage of blockchain you may look
into an ETF that has these but as of
right around like prior to October I
remember there was an article that
talked about how Goldman Sachs had you
know they were calling Bitcoin fraud but
also released around around this time
frame that they’re gonna get involved in
crypto currencies and then this saw kind
of jump it up pretty crazy so I’m not I
don’t know if that growth is pertaining
to that whole discussion but you can see
here that the yield is right around 1.1
for where else in the past through April
through October it was hovering in the
1.2 1.2 fives 1.30 so it is down quite a
bit and the stock could continue to rise
in the future but at this current time
it may not look like a good opportunity
to buy now looking at its revenue free
cash flow and net income those are all
good stocks to look at here I like to
look at the 5-year and then look at them
percentage-wise so as far as revenue
goes they are down five point one three
percent for the over five years the net
income is down one point zero three and
their free cash flow is down by more
than a hundred and ninety seven percent
so not an amazing you know if you’re a
dividend investor I would definitely
want to take a look at their dividend
payout ratio and how long they’ve paid
dividends how long they’ve continued to
have dividend growth what’s their
dividend growth look like now let’s take
a look at the price the book and price
to earnings we can see their price the
book value is actually really nice you
know one for one ratio what I mean that
you’re buying their price at their
current book value of the company so
this is actually right around even and
if you look at it for the long term
he normally stays at right around this
list this area where as their p/e ratio
their p/e ratio say for the last couple
years has hovered right around let’s
take a look at five years that takes it
that takes a little bit better so you
can see here that the p/e ratio for
Goldman Sachs hovers maybe between ten
eleven or so but into 2016 2017 it had
jumped up high which means that their
earnings may not have been great in
comparison to the price but now that
their earnings have begun to get better
their p/e ratio has begun to kind of
drop back down to the norm so it is a
little bit elevated in comparison to the
but it could still be considered a good
one to look at in the future now next is
JP Morgan now this is a lot of them no
no this company has chase now again I
like to take a look at its five-year
just really quickly look at the dividend
yield and the price we can see it again
this talk man started in January just
took off for the most part prior to
January 2017 this stock was trading
right down in the sixty five fifty five
to sixty seven dollar range January
that’s that company took off and it’s
now over a hundred and six dollars so
just about increased by more than a
hundred percent in the last year
now see you so at this time I would
consider this one a bit overpriced let’s
take a look at the revenue free cash
flow net income for the last five years
and it’s go look at percentage-wise cuz
you know this shows like the there
aren’t billions obviously but I’d like
to take a look at how they’re moving so
net income is up sixteen point two
percent their free cash flow is down
eight point eight percent and their
revenue is up one point eight seven so
not too bad for a financial company
their free cash flow it does waver up
and down that’s to be expected but you
know it’s not as bad as say Goldman
Sachs so let’s go remove JP Morgan free
cash flow down one hundred and ninety
seven percent this is much nicer number
and if we look at it over the ten-year
here we can see that net income is up
three hundred and forty-one percent the
revenue is about forty six percent and
their net income or their free cash flow
it stays right around the same so they
they may be doing some acquisitions
buying up little little things I would I
probably want to look where their free
cash flow is going next we want to take
a look at their price to book value
their p/e ratio over the let’s say five
years change it back to a numerical
again JP Morgan or uh their price the
book value stays a little over one let’s
see here for the last for the most part
they trade around say I would say this
is maybe one point five right here this
this bar right here so they’re at one
point five nine
so they trade a little bit below the bar
so I would say 1.4 1.3 and is whether
normally am and you can see January 2017
they’ve had a steady increase they’re up
from where they had been in the past
their price to book value right now is
let’s see I don’t know where the average
point would be maybe 11.25 I would set a
rudder on the average so I would say
that currently their price to book value
or a price price to earnings is a bit
high and forward price earnings let’s go
ahead and knock it down to one year and
make sure I’m looking at PE and PE so
there Ford P is the orange and expected
to go up whereas that would mean that
their price in comparison to their
earnings their earnings may be coming
down which would cause their PE ratio to
increase in comparison to their price so
that is JP Morgan next we have Microsoft
yet take a look at the price in yield
and that’s five-year that’s correct and
looking at that information so Microsoft
took off this stock has been continuing
to take off
there was a time back in 2016 I
purchased the stock I believe back in
August timeframe or July timeframe when
I saw that the yield was a exceeding the
current price for the year so I dove
into the stock and it’s been doing
really well we can see for the five year
it is on its way up so at this current
time I would say it’s a bit overpriced
if you’d like you can probably average
in here and there wait for dips
taking a look at the revenue free cash
flow and net income for the last five
years taking a look at it
percentage-wise this stock is up free
cash flow thirty one point four three
percent their revenue is up twenty point
seven nine percent and their net income
is down around three point zero one
if we look at over ten years they’re up
free cash flow seventy five point two
six fifty five point six four and their
net income is up nineteen point nine
three price the book value in p/e ratio
go back to regular numbers here we can
see here for Microsoft they’re currently
trading at around a twenty nine PE which
is pretty high if you had bought the
stock you know it looks like the average
could be sitting right around fifteen so
the stock as of 2000 end of 2015 the
stock has jumped up quite a bit in their
p/e ratio surprising comparison to their
earnings whereas their their price the
book value is currently sitting at seven
point three back in 2016 they were right
around a five so
well not too bad there there Ford p/e
ratios take a look in comparison to
their current p/e so they’re currently
at 29 they’re forged p/e is expected at
25 point two one so their price at
comparison to their earnings expected to
their earnings or their earnings are
expected to increase their current price
level which would drive the the the p/e
ratio down so Microsoft great pick
theorem IBM let’s take a look at again
for the five years so IBM’s been down in
the dumps this year I believe it’s down
around fifteen percent year-to-date
and we could actually look that number
up a little bit better here over at CNN
market if we type in IBM and we look at
your today okay there are only down
seven point five seven percent so a
little bit different than what I had
said almost double so anyways you can
see here that as far as their dividend
goes for the last five years this is
that one of the highest points it’s been
since back in 2016 looks like maybe
January time frame it was up around this
time right around this yield before
and the price was down and maybe the
121-125 the area so this thought could
be at a good opportunity to pie and we
definitely need to you know you
definitely need to do some more research
what’s going on with this company that’s
cause this company to kind of drop off
by more than seven percent this year now
taking a look at its revenue free cash
flow and net income for the last five
years take a look at it percentage-wise
we can see that that their revenue is
down 23% their free cash flow is down
25% and their net income is down 28% so
looking at these numbers alone hold on
okay so come back looking at these
numbers alone I would definitely want to
know what is going on with IBM that’s
driving that revenue their free cash
flow and that income down so much over
the last five years where we’ve been
actually in a very nice you know growth
period in United States what’s been
going on with their sales what kind of
services are they doing products that
there’s released things that they’re
kind of done for their company to you
know have driven them down this far in
comparison to the last ones that we have
covered so that’s kind of an interesting
thing to look at here that’s probably
why they are down more than seven
percent this year
you know I’ve continued to kind of fall
down over the last couple of years now
taking a look at their price to book
value and their p/e ratio and taking it
back to the number here we can see that
the current price of the book is seven
point two three which is actually Fred
tech company
they’re probably better ones out there
but you can see its price the big fire
has came down hard in comparison to
where it was back in 2015 this is
actually one of the lowest points
and say the last eight years almost you
can see here let’s go ahead and just hit
the max and take a look at mine I won’t
iBM has been around since what 1979
somewhere back there maybe before I
let’s see here so ok so their price to
earnings ratio is currently sitting at
twelve point eight three we can see here
for the last ten years I would consider
it maybe about average or below we can
see that it did dip back in January 2016
right above the right below maybe the
9.0 so over the last five years has
probably been something kind of going on
with this company I would definitely
want to investigate more into this
company as to what they’re really doing
prior to invest and I would want to do
second you know secondary third dive
into getting to know what is going on
with this company that has driven it
down over the last couple years
now their current p/e ratio is twelve
point eight three their future p/e ratio
that is expected to be about eleven
point eleven or whoops eleven point
thirteen which would mean that they’re
currently you know you know they’re
expecting to generate more earnings
which would cause their p/e ratio to
fall by a bit there so yeah definitely
want to take a look at IBM that would be
one I would definitely want to screen a
lot deeper to see what is driving them
down what do they have in the books I
kind of bump them up you know that’s
something you want to do with all
companies but definitely want to do a
deep dive into that now Intel is the
last one here taking a look at it over
the last five years this one has been
doing very nicely it looks like 2017 was
a great year for Intel and Intel holders
that’s yield which would bounce you know
average really be around maybe 3.0 it’s
currently sitting at a two point three
three so this one is definitely over
valued for its current sitting we can
see that for the year 2017 it had been
primarily undervalued for the year you
would get yields of over three percent
back around July August timeframe I saw
this one as a good buying opportunity
right around that time and I’ve
continued to hold on to it and just
terrible that hadn’t put more into it so
you know I’m considered adding Intel you
know I want to add more equity into
Intel it’s just hard to add it unless
there’s these dips again that happened
so I will probably be looking at a forty
three forty two dollar entry point if I
do anyway he’s kind of going back to the
video definitely a bit overpriced but if
you’re looking at it in the future
perspective you know look at all these
stocks for the future not where they’re
at do you think they will jump up in the
future then it’s definitely worth an
investment at this point if you are just
buying it to buy and hold for the short
term then it may not be a good
investment but if you’re buying and hold
for five ten fifteen thirty years then
this company will you know
the companies that you’re looking to
purchase though though more than likely
as long as you do your research will be
increasing over the long term now taking
a look at their revenue free cash flow
in that income for the last five years
percentage-wise we can see that this
company’s free cash flow is up sixty
seven point two wavers and their revenue
is up sixteen point three nine percent
in their net income is down six point
two six percent so good stats overall
and for the last ten years they’re up
revenue sixty-one percent free cash flow
fifty four percent and net income fifty
or forty seven percent price the book
value is sitting at 3.04 so as the value
investors you know value investors
they’re looking for value socks
underneath three here so socks that
would be a value buy it would be Intel
JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs if you’re
looking at it as a
value ambassador going back to Intel
here and take a look at the price
earnings ratio and for the year we’ll
see that their price earnings ratio is
currently sitting at 1618 point one four
so it’s definitely being kind of
creeping up over the last couple months
since I ran October july/august area
from then on it’s been kind of creeping
up it’s forward p/e ratio is expected to
be at a 14 point 19 so that’s a pretty
nice little leap there I don’t know how
it would look like yeah that’s a
terrible mess so those are the five
stocks I am looking at for January 2018
and beyond these are all pertaining to
blockchain and one way or another so
look at how each of the stocks are
getting involved in blockchain
what are they beginning to use
blockchain for all these companies we
turn in and around such as IBM that have
done they’ve had a rough year during
2017 blockchain itself is here to stay
the technology it’s kind of the you know
the way of the future
and the way I see it so I don’t know if
it’ll affect these companies you know
their revenue their net income and such
but maybe some of them can take
advantage of some of the technology and
you know as a banking unifies the
financial institution ripple itself
looks like a great
cryptocurrency especially dealing in the
financial sector so that is it for this
