Beyond The Trend Investing: Five Smart Bets On Big Market ThemesBeyond The Trend: Five Smart Ways To Play Big Market ThemesTrend: The Biotech BoomTrend: Urban LivingTrend: Broadband DemandTrend: Ascending Auto SalesTrend: Housing Rebound

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 13:50:00 -0400

From biotech and broadband, to housing and autos, today's big themes are well-dissected. But there are ways to play them beyond the obvious, including the following ideas from fund managers and financial advisors.

The Play:Illumina (ILMN)

Sequencing the first human genome cost billions and took over a decade. Now it can happen in hours for a few grand. That's great news for biotech companies developing new drugs, but betting onmost of those stocks is like buying a lottery ticket -- there will be far more losers than winners.The better play isIllumina, which has the equipments and diagnostics the industry needs whether or not its drugs work out. That makes it the picks and shovels provider for the biotech gold rush.

The Play: GrubHub (GRUB)

Millenials and baby boomers are both sticking closer to cities and companies with a new business model and mobile focus should be able to capitalize. Grubhub is world's larger than its next closest competitor in the online food ordering business and the network effect should enhance that advantage. Its scale makes it the 800-pound gorilla in the space, but its modest size [$33 billion market cap] means they could also be a takeover target for bigger tech giants.

The Play: Echostar (SATS)

Whether it's finding sports scores, surfingTwitteror watchingNetflix, people have gotten used to having the Internet at their beck and call whether at work or home. While the cable business is heating up with deals like the pending takeover ofTime Warner Cable, few are focusing on Echostar, a satellite broadband provider that's part of thebillionaireCharles Ergen'sempire alongside DISH Network.

The Play: Lithia Motors (LAD)

Lithia has more than half its business on the West Coast, but offers geographic diversity with dealerships in the Midwest and elsewhere as well. It offers 30 brands, new and used, and even with auto sales booming – annual pace well above 17 million in May -- the age of the[...]

Oasis Petroleum's Bakken Acquisition: When Planning Meets Opportunity

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 12:11:00 -0400

The acquisition of SM Energy's Bakken acreage was not a deal tailored to fit the business model of just any operator in the play. It required a counter-party that was already situated in certain specific parts of the basin, and one that had planned its business to take advantage of the economies of scale derived from having large, contiguous blocks of leasehold in its portfolio. For Oasis Petroleum, SM Energy's desire to obtain a major stake in the Permian Basin provided the opportunity to enhance all of the preparation it had already done.

The Four Presidential Nominees On Energy And Science

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 06:02:00 -0400

It is highly unlikely that the issues surrounding energy will make any difference in who we choose for our next President. That said, there are distinct differences among the four presidential nominees. Clinton supports an all-of-the-above energy strategy with a tilt towards non-fossil fuels to address climate change. Trump supports an all-of-the-above energy strategy with a tilt heavily towards fossil fuels, with no regard to climate change. Johnson supports the free-market as the way to determine our energy mix, as well as most of our problems. Stein is focused completely on climate change to the exclusion of all else.
