NY auto show previews Tesla’s competition with more than 40 electric cars

It wouldn’t be much of a stretch to call this year’s New York International Auto Show “electrifying,” not when you consider that more than 40 vehicles using some form of electric power are on display at the Jacob Javits convention center. That includes not only conventional hybrids such as the Toyota Prius, but a long list of more advanced technologies, including plug-in hybrids and pure battery-electric vehicles. And automakers as diverse as Ford, Hyundai and Daimler AG announced plans to roll

It wouldn’t be much of a stretch to call this year’s New York International Auto Show “electrifying,” not when you consider that more than 40 vehicles using some form of electric power are on display at the Jacob Javits convention center.

That includes not only conventional hybrids such as the Toyota Prius, but a long list of more advanced technologies, including plug-in hybrids and pure battery-electric vehicles. And automakers as diverse as Ford, Hyundai and Daimler AG announced plans to roll out dozens more of those plug-based models over the next several years.

“The industry is going through tremendous change, and there’s no better example of that than the number of electrified vehicles now coming to market,” said Mark Schienberg, head of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, the trade group that organizes the annual show in New York that runs through Sunday.

‘There’s zero chance that 5G is a ubiquitous technology’ by 2021

“There is a zero chance that 5G is a ubiquitous technology” by 2021, Moffett said Tuesday in a “Squawk Box” interview. “The standards of 5G were set for insanely wide blocks of spectrum,” he explained. Verizon turned on its 5G network in Chicago and Minneapolis earlier this month, at an additional cost of $10 for customers with existing unlimited plans. So far this year, AT&T stock is up about 12%, but down 8% over the past 12 months. Verizon shares are up nearly 4% in 2019 and almost 20% higher

'There's zero chance that 5G is a ubiquitous technology' by 2021

There’s no chance that fifth generation wireless, or 5G, will become available everywhere in two years’ time, according to Craig Moffett, who has been a leading telecommunications analyst for years.

Moffett, co-founder of boutique research firm MoffettNathanson, is skeptical that Verizon and other telecom companies can make the transition because spectrum — the range of frequencies an operator network is allowed to radiate — is not sufficient enough in the U.S. to completely support 5G mobile.

“There is a zero chance that 5G is a ubiquitous technology” by 2021, Moffett said Tuesday in a “Squawk Box” interview.

“The standards of 5G were set for insanely wide blocks of spectrum,” he explained. “You can’t find insanely wide blocks of spectrum anywhere but these stratospheric high frequencies.”

The 5G standard is meant to be at least 50 times faster than its 4G predecessor. Competition to move to the new technology is fierce.

Verizon turned on its 5G network in Chicago and Minneapolis earlier this month, at an additional cost of $10 for customers with existing unlimited plans. Earlier this month, AT&T said its 5G service went live in parts of seven more cities — Austin, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose.

Moffett appeared on CNBC shortly after Verizon posted first-quarter earnings and revenue that beat Wall Street expectations. It raised its 2019 profit forecast.

The MoffettNathanson analyst said Verizon is a “fully valued” stock, but more favorable than AT&T.

So far this year, AT&T stock is up about 12%, but down 8% over the past 12 months. Verizon shares are up nearly 4% in 2019 and almost 20% higher over 12 months.

Elon Musk told this Reddit user they 'should interview at Tesla' — here's why

Wednesday, billionaire tech titan Elon Musk told a Reddit user they “should interview at Tesla” based on a post the redditor wrote about the electric car-maker’s autopilot system.

Reddit user “greentheonly” posted a pretty technical analysis of upcoming hardware and software updates to Tesla’s autopilot technology back in January. (Greentheonly included things like “program operations are pipelined with data loads and computations interleaved and weight fetching happening well upstream from the instructions that actually use those weights.”)

Then on Tuesday — after Tesla tweeted a list of the self-driving hardware now being built into its cars — someone shared a link to the Reddit post, tagging Tesla and Elon Musk.

Musk saw the analysis and responded, tweeting it was “mostly correct” and calling Reddit “hardcore.”

Musk then said whoever wrote the analysis should interview for a job at Tesla.

Neither the author of the Reddit analysis or Tesla immediately responded to CNBC Make It’s request for comment.

Even if Musk doesn’t personally invite you to apply to work at Tesla, the company does have guidelines for what makes a successful applicant: love the mission; demonstrate you’re innovative, driven, collaborative and trustworthy; and be ready to demonstrate your skills, not just talk about them — like the Redditor did.

“We are big believers in showing us what you can do, versus telling us what you can do,” Cindy Nicola, Tesla’s then head of global recruiting, told CNBC Make It in 2018. “So for example, if you were an engineering candidate and you were coming in, there might be some coding test or some problem solving that we would do on a whiteboard.”

“We are extremely mission-driven. There’s a lot of energy in the world around what we’re trying to do. We have really tough problems to solve, so I think people want to be a part of that,” Nicola said. “There’s not many companies that you can work at today where there’s really a direct impact between the work you do and changing the world.”

Staples stocks are at 52-week highs, but there's still time to buy, experts say

Consumer staples are moving upwards, here are the ETFs to watch 5 Hours Ago | 02:36

Investors are doubling down on the market’s staples.

The Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR Fund, widely known by its ticker, XLP, hit a new 52-week high on Monday, a more than 18% climb from its lows in December. The move was fueled by stronger-than-expected quarterly earnings from Kleenex parent Kimberly-Clark, which could set the rest of the group up for a good week of reporting.

Still, Dave Nadig, managing director of ETF.com, is encouraging investors to be careful with this group, which many see as a safe haven in the stock market.

“I think ‘new highs’ is a relative term,” he said Monday on CNBC’s “ETF Edge.” “We’re only up 12, 13% in this space. This is far from the high-flying segment.”

And with industry giants Procter & Gamble and Coca-Cola — which account for more than 25% of the XLP — reporting later this week, that’s “a lot of concentration” to discount at the moment, Nadig said.

Even so, Nadig still sees opportunities, particularly in U.S.-based consumer staples ETFs.

“I’m still a believer that we’re in a global slowdown environment, [so] I’d rather stick to the U.S.,” he said. “I think it’s a little more understandable, a little more controllable. I would go with equal-weight here because I think that that concentration … could help you. If P&G really blows the doors off, you’ll want that exposure. But I think, long term … the smaller names are doing as well as the bigger names. Why not give yourself a little bit of short-term diversification?”

Alternative plays with exposure to the automotive space could also serve investors well, Nadig said.

But if you ask ETF expert Reggie Brown, who is senior managing director of Cantor Fitzgerald’s ETF group, investors’ moves this earnings season will ultimately boil down to two factors.

“Investors love earnings and outcomes,” he said in the same “ETF Edge” interview. “So I think you’re seeing a drive into the sector based on performance of the underlying companies and, as you know, ETFs represent performance of underlying stocks. So you’re seeing investors want to have exposure.”

The XLP flattened after reaching its 52-week high in Monday’s trading session, hovering in the $56 range. The Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight Consumer Staples ETF, its equally weighted counterpart, also hit a 52-week high.

Value investor Joel Greenblatt says he likes Booking Holdings, thinks Align is too expensive

Value investor and Gotham Funds co-chief investment officer Joel Greenblatt told CNBC that he likes online travel company Booking Holdings and remains short medical device maker Align Technology.

The longtime value investor said that while concerns over competition from Google and Airbnb are reasonable, Booking’s cheaper price and solid growth in earnings and sales are enough to make a compelling investment idea.

“This is a network type of business where you’re getting it at a 40% discount to the S&P,” Greenblatt said on “The Exchange” on Monday. “It’s an asset-light, cash flow machine. It’s in a very good business, it’s essentially in a duopoly with Expedia.”

Greenblatt added that the company — which operates sites including Booking.com, OpenTable and Kayak — has been active in buying back its outstanding equity, repurchasing about 8% in 2018. Booking generates more than half of its sales outside the U.S.

Shares of Booking Holdings, though up nearly 7% in 2019, are still underperforming the broader stock market over a slew of timelines. Its stock is down more than 11% over the last 12 months versus the S&P 500’s 9% gain. Expedia, on the other hand, is up 16.5% over the last year.

The founder of Gotham Capital famously had annual returns of 40 percent from 1985 to 2005 and authored New York Times best-seller “The Little Book That Still Beats the Market.”

On the other hand, Greenblatt doubled down on his short thesis on Invisalign company, Align. He argued that while the business itself isn’t problematic, the current price people have to pay for the stock appears lofty given recent patent expiration.

“A lot of their patents started coming off in 2017, there’s a lot of competition coming into the business. And at 50% discounts to the cost of their stuff,” he said. “So really not a good — I mean, it’s a great business, but there’s not a good case at this valuation level to be excited about it.”

The stock is up more than 11% over the last 12 months. Greenblatt said that the stock is current trading at more than 100 times free cash flow, giving it one of the highest valuations in the S&P 500.

Amazon Alexa is luring health developers, but it will be a while before we use it to call a doctor

If you want to schedule a doctor’s appointment or check on the status of a medication without picking up the phone, Amazon Alexa can help.

As of this week, the voice assistant is HIPAA compliant, which means Amazon can work with hospitals and other health providers that manage protective health data to share personal information on an Echo.

But what users can’t do yet is connect with a doctor or a therapist through the device, and it might be a few years before they can. Currently, Amazon is working with applications on an invite-only basis, and none of the initial six developers link patients with doctors.

Developers focused on digital health have concerns about using home speakers like the Echo and Google Home for medical consults because privacy issues continue to emerge and there’s too much risk in sensitive health information falling into the wrong hands. Earlier this week, Bloomberg reported that thousands of employees listen in to snippets of conversations on Alexa to supposedly improve the product experience.

“It’s tricky,” said Robbie Cape, CEO of 98point6, a Seattle-based company that provides virtual medical consults via smartphones and the web. “To uphold user trust, I can imagine that Amazon Alexa would need to confirm they’re talking to the right person, but also that there’s no one else in the room listening to the conversation.”
