BUZ INVESTORS  GOOG Accuses Uber  Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), which owns Google and its driverless car subsidiary, Waymo, is waging a legal war against ride sharing giant Uber.

Waymo said it has evidence that Uber stole its trade secrets and wants a judge to bar the head of Uber’s autonomous driving unit from ever working on the project again. Bloomberg has some more details on the new development in the case:GOOG Accuses Uber



 

Alphabet Inc.(GOOG)– NASDAQ




 GOOG Accuses Uber

Alphabet Inc.’s Waymo made the request Friday as a federal judge weighs whether to issue a court order that may impede Uber in the race to market autonomous-driving vehicles. U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco said last month that Waymo has a strong case that its former engineer, Anthony Levandowski, downloaded thousands of confidential files before he left the company to launch his own self-driving startup, Otto, that was acquired by Uber for $680 million.

Levandowski had an obligation to protect Waymo’s intellectual property before leaving to join Uber. Now a judge must decide how best to keep further harm from occurring.

While the court case may seem trivial to many, the race to provide the first fleet of self-driving cars is very real. Tens of billions of dollars will likely flow to the winner — be it Google, Uber, Tesla, or another company.

Waymo said it has “finally learned” of a project designed by Levandowski while he was in possession of Waymo’s files. Uber has hidden the code-named design from the court, according to the filing. The name is redacted in the filing.

“They were hiding a device,” Waymo wrote, “which Uber only revealed to Waymo after one of its engineers was forced to admit it existed.”

Uber spokesman Matt Kallman said the code-named device was an abandoned project that never reached a prototype. Far from keeping it secret, Uber made it available to Waymo to inspect and photograph as part of court-ordered information sharing, he said. Waymo’s emphasis on the unnamed device represents a strategic pivot by Waymo and a retreat from its original claims, he said.

Uber is fighting the case so far without testimony from Levandowski, who wasn’t named as a defendant, but has said he’s at risk of being criminally prosecuted and has asserted his constitutional right to protect himself from self-incrimination.Like up on FACEBOOK

BUZ INVESTORS Artificial Intelligence War A war is brewing in Silicon Valley, but not with guns and ammo.

Artificial Intelligence in 2017

BUZ INVESTORS Artificial Intelligence War A war is brewing in Silicon Valley, but not with guns and ammo.

BUZ INVESTORS Artificial Intelligence War A war is brewing in Silicon Valley, but not with guns and ammo.

This is a conflict of software code; of cutting-edge technology. Companies like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) are already locked in an arms race for supremacy in “AI.” (More on that later.)

Some of you may be rolling your eyes. I know artificial intelligence companies sound like science fiction, but it’s real, and what’s more, it is the biggest investment opportunity of the century. This is not an exaggeration.

Artificial Intelligence War

No, I haven’t fallen down and hit my head on something hard. Investors should definitely keep an eye out for artificial intelligence stocks in 2017. AI is the new fountain of wealth, because it can be retooled for almost every industry.

What Is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial intelligence is software that learns and adapts to new information.

It is designed around ideas like deep learning and neural nets. Although that list is not exhaustive, it is the simplest way of defining AI. At least from a technical perspective. Perhaps the technology is easier to understand if we talk about AI’s applications.

Narrow Artificial Intelligence

Tech companies have already mastered Narrow AI, so this article will mostly center on the potential of those developments.

In Narrow AI, programmers design a piece of software that works at a very specific task. Playing chess, trading stocks, recommending movies. Whatever the case may be, there is usually a Narrow AI to make the software improve and learn on its own accord.

General Artificial Intelligence

Even the titans of artificial intelligence—Google, Microsoft, and Amazon—haven’t mastered General AI. To put it simply, this form of AI would be as smart as a human. Not just for one specific task, but for everything. You could say that General AI is the next milestone for artificial intelligence companies.

Super Artificial Intelligence

This type of AI gets much closer to the dystopian vision of the future. There are experts who worry that an algorithm at Google, Amazon, or Microsoft will grow smart, 1000 times smarter than the average person. They worry that it will become a Super AI.

Amazon Stock Is Tasting the Fruits of AI

Over the last two years, cloud computing was the biggest driver of Amazon stock. That much is well documented and we have said so repeatedly on Profit Confidential. (See here and here for examples)

GOOG Stock Price Is Still Undervalued

I know this is hard to imagine, but the GOOG stock price is trading at a discount. Investors are only placing a premium on the company’s command of digital advertising revenues because that is how Google built an empire. 99% of its revenues still come from advertising.

However, Google has some of the best AI researchers on the planet, most whom it acquired through the $600.0 million purchase of DeepMind. It bought the AI startup in 2014, and it may be the smartest acquisition ever made.

MSFT Stock Could Be the Biggest AI Winner

While Google and Amazon have huge, consumer-facing businesses, Microsoft sells to other corporations. Sure, many of us buy licenses for Microsoft Office, but it’s still work or school related. Our interaction with Microsoft doesn’t have to be fun.

Our lives are on the brink of massive change, yet so few people are willing to accept that. That’s why they’ll miss out on artificial intelligence stocks in 2017.

Artificial intelligence is not a vague concept we picked up from a science fiction novel. It is the single biggest technology trend since the Internet, and the money-making potential is huge

Benefit from Big Investments Alphabet announced fourth-quarter adjusted earnings of $9.36 per share, which missed expectations by a wide margin. The reason was the one-time $586.0-million tax charge related to its stock-based compensation. However, the revenues at $26.0 billion surpassed consensus estimates. Still, GOOG stock has been hit by the earnings miss.

On a call with analysts, Porat said that the newer forms of advertising on Google, such as mobile searches, YouTube, and automated ad buying, are big opportunities that have still not been tapped. She further added that the new businesses of the cloud, hardware, and YouTube subscriptions could be “major revenue drivers for Google in the next several years.” (Source: “Google Parent Alphabet Finds New Growth Beyond Search,” The Wall Street Journal, January 26, 2017.)

The Google “Pixel” smartphone has received good reviews so far and is turning out to be a strong contender in the smartphone market. With “Google Assistant,” Alphabet has put up a strong fight with the market leader, “Alexa,” from Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), in the field of voice search.

But the important point to remember is that any associated costs will get wiped off the company’s income statement. That is a really big deal for Google stock, not because this satellite business was terrible or anything, but because it shows commitment to shareholder value.

Since Waymo isn’t manufacturing the cars, but simply licensing the technology to carmakers like Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (NYSE:FCAU) or Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE:TM), it could become a profit center much sooner than other firms in the same industry.

Mega Trend 

Ten years ago, self-driving technology was a shadow of a dream, but then the AI revolution began. There are literally dozens of ways to cash in on this Mega-Trend.

Just look at what Google is doing in the U.K. It signed a deal with the National Health Service (NHS) to implement an AI-enabled app called “Streams.” This app flips through kidney scans to learn how diseases grow over time. That way, it can detect them earlier. (Source: “NHS to use Google DeepMind AI app to help treat patients,” Engadget, November 22, 2016.)

No individual patient data is leaked or divulged to the AI, because it learns from the patterns it sees. It doesn’t need to violate privacy. But, obviously, these services won’t come cheap. Hospitals and other healthcare institutions are going to have to pay up for these services, and Google stock (GOOG stock) will reap the rewards.

Great News for Alphabet 

Apple’s iPhones simply don’t offer any models at an attractive price point for the global market, while Android phones benefit from the ability to produce affordable phones for a global audience, which accounts for their global market domination. The drawback is that, of the hundreds of manufacturers producing smartphones, many are money-losers, including big-name brands likeHTC Corporation and LG Electronics Inc. (Source: “Apple iPhone Grabs 104% Of Smartphone Industry Profit In Q3,” Investors Business Daily, November 3, 2016.)

Apple, on the other hand, continues to dominate the smartphone arena in terms of profit, accounting for 103.6% of the smartphone industry’s operating profits in the third quarter.

Emerging markets across the world are likely to spur growth for the foreseeable future, even if it is at a decreased rate. India and Indonesia, in particular, might be major players in the smartphone market due to their developing economies and high population growth.

This deterioration of the internals began in September, and it seems like it will not end until the indices wash out and test lower levels.

Google stock was trading in a tight consolidation range that was defined by two parallel lines highlighted in blue above. In October, GOOG stock broke above this channel, and this indicated that a new trending phase was set to begin. The price action quickly failed, and this failure is the cause for my concerns. Even though the selling pressure is marketwide, this pattern is still a failure, and lower prices are now expected.

The 200-day moving average is the dividing line between stocks trading in a bull market versus stocks trading in a bear market. When the share price is above the moving average, it is bullish; when the share price is below the moving average, it is bearish. It is not uncommon for this moving average to act as support as it is tested from above. This would be the first place I would be looking at to find possible price support.

The financial crisis in 2009 set off panic selling, and this trend line was born when Google stock finally bottomed. Google stock has never traded below this trend line, but it has tested it on many occasions. Buyers have continually supported the stock as the price tested this trend line. This line should act as support if it is tested once again, but a failure to hold this level might indicate that something more sinister is going on.
