7 Stocks Smart Investors Are Buying After CES

The 2016 CES in Las Vegas displayed the latest technology from leading innovators around the world, and ROTH Capital Partners analyst Brain Alger witnessed the spectacle firsthand.

According to Alger, the biggest themes of this year’s event were Internet-of-Things, health and fitness wearables, virtual reality an augmented reality, droves, autonomous vehicles and HDR video. Conversely, interest in maturing technologies such as smartphones and HDTV appeared weak.

“All the companies had positive comments on the higher margin, more ‘sticky’ nature of design wins in the Internet-of-Things market,” Alger explains. However, he cautioned that the young market remains extremely fragmented and unpredictable.

Slowing smartphone demand and concerns over economic weakness in China has hurt semiconductor stocks in recent weeks, but ROTH sees plenty of buying opportunities for investors.

Following CES, ROTH has buy ratings on the following stocks: Digital Turbine Inc APPS, GigOptix Inc GIG, Intel Corporation INTC, InvenSense Inc INVN, MaxLinear, Inc. MXL, Pixelworks, Inc. PXLW and QuickLogic Corporation QUIK.
