How to save money on digital subscriptions

With the news this week that Apple will soon launch video, magazine and news services, I started to wonder how much I was spending already on these kinds of subscriptions. If I really wanted to buy the new Apple bundle, could I afford it?

So I went through my recent bank statement for the last month and was stunned to discover I already spend $132.11 per month on subscription services like Hulu, Netflix, extra iCloud storage, digital newspapers and more. That’s not including the cable and wireless bills I pay for internet access so I can use these services.

$132 a month! That’s way more than I expected.

Ten bucks a month doesn’t seem like that much, but these little payments add up awful fast if you tack them all together.

Here’s my strategy to try to cut back: I’m going to break out what I pay for everything, and then take a look at how much I use each service and decide if I should give it up or not. I’m not going to include cable or wireless, since they’re essential and I’m not planning to cut either one.

Here’s the breakdown of what I’m paying:

Johnson & Johnson CEO on Apple Watch collaboration: 'Ultimately, we're going to save lives'

Johnson & Johnson’s collaboration with Apple on the Apple Watch will be a pivotal step in detecting heart irregularities that could lead to much more serious conditions, Johnson & Johnson chief Alex Gorsky told CNBC on Friday.

“One of the most exciting parts of my job right now is to see the technology that’s usually equated with California and the West Coast, whether it’s AI, machine learning [or] robotics, … more and more being integrated into health care,” Gorsky, the chairman and CEO, told CNBC’s Jim Cramer in a “Mad Money” interview.

That’s certainly the case with Johnson & Johnson and Apple’s new partnership. The two giants are using the Watch in a cardiovascular health study to see how it impacts early detection of atrial fibrillation, or heart flutters, which can lead to stroke and other debilitating conditions. AFib, as it’s known colloquially, affects some 33 million people worldwide.

Apple already introduced an electrocardiogram feature for the Watch in December, marking the first release of a mass-market product with an ECG. But there has been some debate around its accuracy, which this tie-up could help improve.

“We’re talking about algorithms that are built into the Watch that are monitoring it [in] real time, and it can detect these anomalies far before something really manifests itself,” Gorsky said of the study’s ideal next steps. “If we can detect [AFib] earlier, we can get them the right medication [and] we can help them be compliant on these medications over a longer period of time. Ultimately, we’re going to save lives. And I think it really shows how some of this new technology is coming to health care in new, innovative, unique ways that, frankly, we couldn’t have even imagined just a few years ago.”

The CEO also touted his company’s $3.4 billion deal to buy Auris Health, a robotic surgery firm. Not only will the deal help Johnson & Johnson capitalize on the future of robotic surgery, but it could also eliminate mistakes and cut costs significantly, he said.

Gorsky broke down a few of the ways surgeons could use Auris’ Monarch platform, which makes endoscopy, a nonsurgical procedure that is used to inspect the digestive tract, look a bit like a high-stakes video game. The platform can also be used for bronchoscopy, a similar procedure that inspects the airways and lungs.

In future iterations, the Monarch platform could be used to not only see, but even treat or remove lung lesions or tumors, the CEO said.

“We can run this wire down through the system, […] and, once we get there, we can do a biopsy,” he said. “We could use imaging, in the future, to actually determine what kind of a cancer it is, or we could deliver a therapeutic, perhaps a new kind of immuno-oncology agent, to that specific lesion, or we could go ahead and cut it out. Those are the kind[s] of things that are being made possible by this new technology at a company like Auris.”

Gorsky also briefly addressed the scandal that shaved $40 billion off Johnson & Johnson’s market cap in December: a Reuters report that accused the company of knowing for decades that there were traces of asbestos in its baby powder product. Gorsky previously denied the report on “Mad Money.”

“We put safety and quality first in all of our products, and we believe in the more than 100 years of experience with that product, and we’ll defend it appropriately through the courts,” he told Cramer on Friday. “What we think is most important is the people get the facts and we continue to educate. And, look, we think this will play out in an appropriate way.”

Shares of Johnson & Johnson closed up 1.54 percent on Friday, at $136.38 a share. The stock is up 5.68 percent year to date, and has been on an uptrend since the company’s late January earnings report beat consensus estimates.

One tech stock is up 300 percent in a year, but chart analyst calls it a FOMO rally

One cloud tech stock has risen further and faster than all the rest.

Twilio has surged more than 300 percent in 12 months, miles ahead of double-digt gains by Adobe, Workday and Salesforce.

Blue Line Futures’ Bill Baruch says it might be too late to jump into the stock now.

“Don’t simply chase this stock because of FOMO [fear of missing out]. I’d rather miss a move than chase something,” Baruch said on CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Wednesday. “Yes, Twilio is strong. It broke out above a potential ‘butting bearish wedge’ and that breakout level is going to be support above that trend line. Still, though, I wouldn’t chase this.”

On top of its 12-month surge, the stock has risen 20 percent just this year and reached record highs as recently as this week. A “butting bearish wedge” is formed when a trading range narrows as prices rise — Twilio broke out of this bearish channel earlier this year.

Instead of getting in now, Baruch is waiting for the cloud software stock to come back down to a more attractive entry point.

“It is out above the 50-day, 100-day, 200-day moving averages, but I’d wait for a little bit of a pullback coming into there. Look at a retracement,” said Baruch. Around “$85 or $90 – that’s where you’re going to find value in the stock rather than just chasing it.”

The bottom end of that range at $85 represents a 21 percent drop from Wednesday’s close of $106.87. Twilio first broke above that level last September.

Stacey Gilbert, head of derivative strategy at Susquehanna, says the stock is likely to continue its upward sprint based on market activity.

“Options are the market’s best guess of where the stock is going to be in the future, it’s the positioning of the future, and that remains bullish,” Gilbert said on “Trading Nation” on Wednesday. “So while the stock may be pulling back a little bit [on Wednesday] as a knee-jerk reaction and some profit-taking, I’d make an argument that the sentiment overall remains bullish.”

Twilio fell 7 percent on Wednesday after topping fourth-quarter earnings estimates, but falling short on first-quarter guidance.

NASA chief Bridenstine talks SpaceX and Boeing, returning to the moon and life on Mars

Similarly staggered in timing, SpaceX says its Demo-2 crewed flight will be in July, while Boeing is aiming for no earlier than August. However, Bridenstine says that this does not mean it is certain SpaceX will launch humans before Boeing.

“I think there is going to be less time between the uncrewed vehicle for Boeing and the crewed vehicle for Boeing, and longer time between SpaceX [capsule test flights] – which means, whoever gets to fly that first crew, we don’t know right now,” Bridenstine said.

A spokesman for Boeing said, “Both Starliner capsules that will fly this year are crew ready. During the uncrewed flight we will evaluate all test objectives except those that require a person in the capsule. Our flight with a crew depends on a successful uncrewed flight.”

Because Boeing is reusing its crew modules, the company expects the capsules will be essentially the same between the first test flight and the second. While the schedule has been delayed multiple times over the last several years, Bridenstine said he is “highly confident” that the U.S. will be launching “American astronauts from American soil on American-made rockets” by the end of 2019.

Shifting to NASA’s next human spaceflight ambition, Bridenstine addressed President Donald Trump’s declaration that the U.S. must return Americans to the surface of the moon and onward to Mars. NASA is announcing more of its plans for returning humans to the moon at a conference on Thursday, focusing on the spacecraft that will land on the surface. Bridenstine said NASA’s lunar plans are also “likely to be a public-private partnership” and explained more of his idea of who those customers will be.

“When I say many customers I mean there will be sovereign nations that have their own astronaut programs, and there is going to be space tourists as well, but we are going to be one customer of many customers in a robust commercial marketplace. Well what we are going to do now is we are going to take that model … and we are going to apply that to everything between the Earth and the moon so that we have a sustainable return to the moon.”

Bridenstine also set his expectation for NASA’s return, saying “the goal is to have the first human lander on the surface of the moon in 2024.”

Why return to the moon? One reason is for the resources on its surface, which include “water ice” and rare Earth metals. Bridenstine gave his case for the value those resources represent, which could be worth “tens of trillions of dollars,” he said.

“In 2009, NASA made a discovery, there are hundreds of billions of tons of water ice on the surface of the moon. What does that mean? That means you’ve got air to breathe: Oxygen. You’ve got water to drink: H2O. But you’ve also got rocket fuel on the surface of the moon. Hydrogen and oxygen, cracked into its component parts, put into cryogenic form, it’s the same rocket fuel that powered the space shuttles and its abundant on the surface of the moon. We also believe that there could be … a tremendous amount of value in precious metals on the surface of the moon. We hear about ‘rare Earth metals’ – rare Earth metals are not Earth metals. Platinum groups metals – these are metals that are impacts, asteroid impacts from space from billions of years ago.”

Finally, Bridenstine talked about the agency’s long-term ambition of putting astronauts on Mars, which he expects will happen sometime after 2030. He said Trump has not told him to get humans to Mars “whatever it takes,” although the president is “very interested” in accelerating NASA’s plans for the red planet. He believes there’s still a chance that of finding living organisms on Mars.

“I’m here to say I think that the probability is going up that we could find life on another world, namely Mars,” Bridenstine said. “That would be an amazing discovery and I think its important that the United States of America make that discovery.”

Deere is crushing Caterpillar this year, but experts say that's about to change

Deere is racing circles around Caterpillar.

The tractor company is up 20 percent over the past six months, while Caterpillar languishes in the red.

Its outperformance even prompted a downgrade from Bank of America to neutral, its analysts contending that lack of progress in U.S.-China trade talks means the stock may have run as far as it can for now.

Matt Maley, equity strategist at Miller Tabak, said the disparity between Deere and Caterpillar should soon correct itself.

“When you go back over time, you go over the last 10 years, these two stocks have been very highly correlated,” Maley said Tuesday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.” “Every few years a divergence develops and each time that divergence develops, it usually only lasts for a couple of months and they usually fall back together. Usually the stock that has outperformed comes down and meets the underperforming stock.”

In 2011, 2012 and 2014, for example, when Caterpillar raced ahead of Deere it soon rolled over to come back to its underperforming peer. The same thing happened to Deere when it outperformed Caterpillar in 2015. It was a slightly different story in 2017 — Deere rallied and the underperforming Caterpillar caught up to it.

“What I would suggest is that people either want to short John Deere and go long Cat Tractor and for those that can’t go short, you might want to underweight Deere and overweight Cat Tractor because that divergence should resolve itself before too long especially now that it’s been going on for a couple of months,” Maley said.

Mark Tepper, president of Strategic Wealth Partners, instead expects Caterpillar to catch up to Deere and then pass it.

“Deere’s valuation looks really stretched right now and Cat looks undervalued and beyond that there’s positive catalysts that could take Cat higher but I’m not seeing that for Deere. I think everything good seems to already be priced in,” Tepper said Tuesday on “Trading Nation.”

Tepper also expects a revival in infrastructure demand and any clarity in trade talks with China to give Caterpillar a big boost.

“We think that demand is really going to revive itself so that’s a positive catalyst for Cat and when we see that happen whether it’s in China or more likely here in the U.S., that’s going to take Cat’s stock higher,” said Tepper. “Once we get resolution with China both of these stocks are going to rally but Cat is going to do better.”

President Donald Trump has said he may extend his March 2 deadline for additional tariffs on China if the two are close to a deal. The two countries are currently in negotiations.

NASA rover Opportunity finally dies on Mars after 15 years

NASA’s Opportunity, the Mars rover that was built to operate just three months but kept going and going, was pronounced dead Wednesday, 15 years after it landed on the red planet.

The six-wheeled vehicle that helped gather critical evidence that ancient Mars might have been hospitable to life was remarkably spry up until eight months ago, when it was finally doomed by a ferocious dust storm.

Flight controllers tried numerous times to make contact and sent one final series of recovery commands Tuesday night along with one last wake-up song, Billie Holiday’s “I’ll Be Seeing You.” There was no response from space, only silence.

Cramer’s lightning round: These are the two pot stocks I’m recommending

Fitbit Inc.: “I would’ve liked Fitbit at one time like I would’ve liked Fossil. I know, obviously, Fitbit is better in terms of health, but the Apple Watch is king. We think that it’s got a lot of good stuff, but we realize that it is speculative. I don’t know why it will bounce. They’re really a play on worldwide growth and there isn’t enough worldwide growth right now, so we’re going to stay away from IP.”

Moderna Inc.: “I pulled up with these guys when I was at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference and I was quite impressed. I think it is a winner. Now, a little speculative, but you’ve got a good call.”

Exelixis Inc.: “We like Exelixis. We think that it’s got a lot of good stuff, but we realize that it is speculative. We profiled it several times and we’re on board.”

Among the changes was the raising of the standard deduction for married couples to $24,000 from $13,000, and to $12,000 for individuals, from $6,500. Personal exemptions were also eliminated.

“It was the biggest change in 30 years,” said Gary Milkwick, chief product officer at 1800Accountant.com, a New York-based tax preparation and consulting firm.

By the time the government reopened in late January, the agency had more than 5 million pieces of mail that had not been processed and 87,000 amended returns waiting to be handled, the report said. The National Taxpayer Advocate is an independent office within the IRS.

At the start of filing season the IRS answered 48 percent of its calls, and the average wait time was 17 minutes. During the same period last year, the IRS answered 86 percent of calls and the average wait time was about four minutes.
