"Why the Bull Market Could End in 2020" by Ben Levisohn makes a case for ways that investors can protect themselves before the markets are hit by two big blows: higher interest rates and the fading impact of tax cuts. See why Barron's feels that BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE: BLK) and Biogen Inc (NASDAQ: BIIB) could be worth a look now.

Jack Hough's "A Low-Priced Way to Ride Sirius' High-Priced Shares" examines the tracking stocks that Liberty Media has in Sirius XM Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: SIRI). Could the close to 30-percent discount mean a hefty upside for investors? And see how Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) could fit into the scenario.

In "5 Stocks That Can Prosper Amid a Debt Crunch," Reshma Kapadia suggests that companies have binged on debt and now it is time for investors to pay more attention to those with strong balance sheets. Electronic Arts Inc. (NYSE: EA) and Mastercard Inc (NYSE: MA) are two of the five. Find out which others made the list.

Lisa Hess and Dan Sobol, founders of SkyTop Capital Management, believe that we are in the early stages of a massive disruption in the auto industry. See "4 Stocks to Play the Electric-Vehicle Revolution" by Andrew Bary to find out why Constellium NV (NYSE: CSTM) and Visteon Corp (NASDAQ: VC) are now among their top picks.

(NASDAQ: DNKN) and Logitech International SA (NASDAQ: LOGI).

"Big Tech: You Want the Good News or the Bad News?" by Jon Swartz points out that the trade war finally reached Silicon Valley this past week, but then the tech sector got a big save from an unexpected source. See how the likes of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM) have fared.
