Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The marquee signing comes as Apple ramps up its original content portfolio and goes head to head with the likes of Netflix and Amazon in a war for consumers’ attention.

“Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world,” the company said in a statement Friday. “Winfrey’s projects will be released as part of a lineup of original content from Apple.”

Apple did not specify whether Winfrey would appear in any of the shows, but she is expected to have an on-screen role as a host and interviewer. The company also declined to discuss financial aspects of the deal.

Apple said the deal will not affect Winfrey’s contract with OWN, the television network she launched in 2011. Winfrey recently extended her contract there through 2025.

Apple, Amazon and Netflix have been racing to lock-in producers, showrunners and performers, and paying unprecedented sums to do so. Backed with enormous financial capital, their entry into Hollywood has radically changed the entertainment business and forced traditional studios to pay more for top talent.

Top Cheap Stocks For 2021

In general, semiconductor stocks have had a great year, likely playing a bit of follow the leader given the rally that technology companies have had. Anything that supplies or sells to the electronics/technology industry is certainly in favor, and for investors that are a little late to the party it can be daunting to pull the trigger. It’s only natural to feel like it’s too late, but there are still a few pockets of value to be found. Despite record results, market share gains, and massive organic revenue growth, Microchip Technology (MCHP) has been left behind in this rally to some extent, despite the gains of the past year.

Some investor concerns likely still lie with the companys aggressive acquisition spree, which has totaled near $5B over the past four years, and feelings that those deals might come to bite the firm. Still, large investors don’t see much risk; institutional ownership of the firm is extremely high, and even after factoring in institutional shorts hedging convertible debt, I don’t believe many retail investors own the company, instead focusing on other more well-known semiconductor peers. Concerns over acquisitions appear overblown, and as the spread between non-GAAP and GAAP reported results tighten, the firm is likely to have more room to run. In my opinion, fair value per share is $110, representing roughly 20% upside from current share prices.
