Amazon Stock Will Double In 3 Years, Says Hedge Funder Who Invested $1 Billion in Bitcoin

bill miller bitcoin Amazon Apple

“Amazon should double again in the next three years,” Miller — an Amazon perma-bull — told CNBC. “The top line is going grow somewhere in the 225% range.”

Given that bullish revenue projection, the founder of Miller Value Partners said it’s not unrealistic to expect Amazon stock to double, noting that the online retailer’s “addressable market is so gigantic.”

Amazon is World’s Most Valuable Company

Amazon — whose 2017 revenue topped $177 billion — hit $1 trillion in market cap for the first time in September 2018. It then dropped due to the year-end selloff in late-2018. Despite the selloff, Amazon shares are still up 30% over the last 12 months.

On Monday (Jan. 7), Amazon stock (AMZN) closed at $1,629, up 3.4% — continuing a five-day rally, as seen in the Yahoo Finance chart below.

Amazon has now surpassed Apple to become the world’s most valuable public company, and Bill Miller doesn’t expect it to slow down anytime soon.

In contrast to Amazon’s bull run, Apple is another story, Miller said.

The stock that is most problematic in the short run is Apple because they missed so badly on their guidance…The Chinese slowdown has hit them.

Apple (AAPL) tanked to an 18-month low last week, due to an abrupt drop in iPhone and iPad demand from China, whose economy is flailing amid ongoing trade wars with the United States.

Apple Will Miss Q1 Revenue Projections by $5B

On January 2, Apple shares tanked 9% after CEO Tim Cook said the tech giant will miss its Q1 revenue projections by at least $5 billion. As CCN reported, Apple has been in serious trouble for some time.

On Dec. 21, 2018, AAPL flashed a bearish “death cross” for the first time in three years. The death cross is a fairly reliable predictor of bear markets. It occurs when a stock’s short-term moving average crosses below its long-term moving average.

The appearance of a death cross is usually followed by a mass sell-off, and that’s exactly what happened with Apple last week.

The sell-off continued Monday, with AAPL closing at $147.93, down 0.22%, on higher-than-average trading volume.

Financial analysts say when tech stocks like Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Netflix struggle, bitcoin prices tend to soften — touching off a weakening in the overall cryptocurrency market.

The impact is not immediate, but there is some correlation between the performance of the tech sector and the crypto market. However, experts claim there is very little correlation between the overall stock market and the crypto ecosystem.

Bill Miller’s Fund Invested $1 Billion in Bitcoin

Bill Miller previously called bitcoin digital “gold.” However, he said most other cryptocurrencies are worthless.

In December 2017, his Miller Value Partner (MVP) Fund invested $1 billion in bitcoin. It’s unclear what MVP’s allocation to bitcoin is now amid the Crypto Winter, but he likely scaled it back. Miller said he first bought bitcoin in 2014 at roughly $350.

Miller launched Miller Value Partners in 2016 after working at Legg Mason for 35 years, where he managed a fund that beat the S&P 500 for 15 years.

3 Top Tech Stocks to Buy Right Now

Don't let current market fluctuations keep you away from these tech stock opportunities.

Jan 8, 2019 at 10:25AM
The broader stock market has taken a hit over the past few months, and tech stocks have taken a beating along with it. Investors are likely worried about increasing talk about a possible economic slowdown or recession in the U.S., as well as uncertainty about a trade war between America and China.

But despite these concerns, there are still tech stocks that look like great buys right now. TTM Technologies (NASDAQ:TTMI)NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA), and Amazon(NASDAQ:AMZN) are benefiting from their respective businesses and setting themselves up to grow for years to come.

Woman taking money out of a wallet.


This market leader is cheap for all the wrong reasons

Anders Bylund (TTM Technologies): Printed circuit boards aren't going out of style anytime soon. Yet, the market acts as if this crucial part of all the electronics around us is going extinct in a hurry. It's high time to snap up shares of this sector-leading -- and very profitable -- circuit-board maker.

Shares of TTM Technologies fell 45% lower in the second half of 2018. This plunge was not connected to disappointing business performance as the company knocked every earnings report out of the park. This was all about flagging investor confidence in TTM's target markets, from smartphones and networking equipment to industrial machinery and computerized cars.

That market reaction might make sense for weaker hands in each niche of the markets, but TTM Technologies is a proven leader. In a commoditized sector where most of its direct rivals are getting by on net margins of 1% or below, TTM's trailing net profits work out to 6% of the incoming revenue. Similar margin advantages hold true no matter what financial metric you'd like to explore, from gross and operating margins to returns on assets or on equity. This company stands head and shoulders above the rest and is perfectly equipped for weathering a few economic storms without losing any ground in the long run. If anything, TTM could very well snap up the remains of failing competitors through bankruptcy deals or opportunistic buyouts.

The stock traded for more than 20 times trailing earnings as recently as last summer, but it can be had for a measly 7 times earnings today. Don't call it a turnaround when TTM's stock starts to rise again -- the company never really suffered a downturn in the first place.

Grab this beaten-down chip leader before it recovers

Steve Symington (NVIDIA): Shares of NVIDIA have plunged more than 50% since late September for a couple of reasons. First, high-flying tech stocks were hit particularly hard as the broader market pulled back in recent weeks. And second, the graphics-chip specialist is being punished after posting mixed third-quarter results last month. That's not to say it was all bad news for NVIDIA; quarterly earnings actually beat expectations, but revenue fell short as cryptocurrency-related GPU purchases waned, leaving the industry with an inventory glut that will take some time to work through. Sure enough, revenue in the fourth quarter is expected to fall around 7% year over year, to $2.7 billion, marking a harsh reversal from the incredible growth that had repeatedly stunned Wall Street in prior quarters.

In the meantime, the market seems to be forgetting that this massively profitable company is working hard to diversify its revenue streams. If its industry-leading position in the gaming market isn't enough, NVIDIA simultaneously enjoyed record sales from its datacenter, automotive, and professional visualization segments last quarter.

Once NVIDIA manages to clear its excess inventory and year-over-year growth resumes, I think the market will realize its long-term story remains firmly intact -- and the stock should respond in kind.

Chris Neiger (Amazon): With Amazon's share price up 317% over the past five years, it may seem like the time to buy Amazon stock has long past. But overlooking this tech stock now would be a huge mistake. That's because Amazon's tech opportunities are still very much in their early stages.

Amazon's biggest technology bet has, of course, been the build-out of its cloud-computing platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS currently has 34% of the public cloud-computing market and easily outpaces its next rival, Microsoft, which holds 14% of the market. Market share aside, Amazon brought in $6.68 billion in AWS sales in the most recent quarter, with $2.1 billion in operating income. That's impressive enough, and it gets even more exciting when you consider that the public cloud-computing market is expected to grow from $186 billion in 2018 to $302 billion in 2021.

Aside from its cloud-computing services, Amazon has emerged as an artificial intelligence leaderas well. The company implements varying levels of machine learning into its e-commerce platform to make suggestions for products and advertisements, and it also uses the tech in its Echo devices as well. All of this allows the company to operate its online retail business more precisely, advertise more efficiently, and make it easy for Echo users to make more purchases.

Investors looking for a tech stock that still has lots of room to grow sales and earnings from its growing AWS business and artificial intelligence should look to Amazon. The company may not be a traditional tech stock, but investors should look closer at how Amazon is using technology to expand into new markets and improve the ones it's already dominating.

Should Nvidia be on your buy list? It's on ours...
Motley Fool co-founders Tom and David Gardner have spent more than a decade beating the market. In fact, the newsletter they run, Motley Fool Stock Advisor, has tripled the S&P!*

Tom and David just revealed their ten top stock picks for investors to buy right now. Nvidia made the list -- but there are 9 other stocks you may be overlooking.

THIS WEEK IN SCHADENFREUDE, Bama fans mull if Dabo is good enough to follow Saban

Your tour of the sad Alabama internet starts with a question: Is the Alabama alum who’s now beaten the Tide for two national championships qualified to coach the Tide?

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to a special National Championship edition of THIS WEEK IN SCHADENFREUDE, your sometimes-weekly race car ride around the saddest tracks of the college football internet.

Today, we visit with Alabama fans, who previously appeared on these pages because they were mad about a 24-0 win over a ranked team. Let’s see how Tide fans online responded after their team actually lost a game for the first time in more than a calendar year — more specifically, got boat-raced by Clemson in the biggest game of the year.

A big postgame discussion topic: Has Dabo Swinney finally earned a chance to be considered for Bama’s head coaching job once Nick Saban retires?

“Did Dabo Secure Post Saban Bama Coaching Job if he wants it?” a message board thread at SECRant.com asked. At this point, you have to at least ask the question.

Yes, but there is one condition, per this person:

if he brings his DC with him, lets get the ball rolling.

Congratulations to the Bama alum, who might have finally proven himself a worthy successor to Saban, but only with Brent Venables in tow. Maybe beat Saban in two or three more title games, and then let’s talk.

Dabo still has work to do to get everyone on board, however. From 247Sports’ board:

I’ll say it. I don’t want him at Alabama. Ever.

Post 1965bamaboy is explicit about it:

Here and accounted for

That’s a real Twitter hashtag These are all from apparent Bama fans:

Cambro hates Kirk Cousins@CambroLiving


See Cambro hates Kirk Cousins's other Tweets

Just Josh@Jsheff001

the day that reject comes to Bama, I’ll quit watching

See Just Josh's other Tweets

TD Wood@td2kool

Dabo acting like he's an underdog is such crap. Like 2011 era John Cena. Y'all are a great program, own it and fuck off with your "aww shucks" routine.

See TD Wood's other Tweets

Cambro hates Kirk Cousins@CambroLiving

Exactly. Dabo would have ZERO reason to leave. Why fight an SEC schedule to get to the CFB playoffs when you can waltz through the trash ass ACC to get there? Also, .

Chris Pollone@ChrisPollone

Yes! The flip side to this is why *would* he take the job? It's not like he's at Central Michigan. Team is loaded. Amazing facilities. Can waltz through the ACC most years. https://twitter.com/j_mac21/status/1082506734671982592 

See Cambro hates Kirk Cousins's other Tweets

Why wouldn’t a Bama fan want Dabo? Well, it’s clear:

Any coach that defends players who cheat I dont want anywhere near my team. If you think for 1 second that only 3 players on that team took PEDs you are a freakin moron. 3 players popped for the same illegal PED there is more than 3 those 3 just got caught. 3 players who didnt hang out together didnt know each other that well those are all words from Dabos mouth and they all tested positive for PEDs the same chemical.

(Clemson was without arguably its best defender due to a drug test suspension and still beat Alabama by 28 points.)

What if it’s just not right?

I can’t ultimately decide regarding Dabo succeeding Saban. I like the fact Dabo is a ‘Bama guy and a great recruiter but there’s something about him I’m just not comfortable with. I do admit, that we could do worse from a recruiting and maybe even X’s & O’s standpoint but I’m not comfortable with him.

Another poster puts Dabo’s potential decision in these terms:

Let’s see...

1) Stay at Clemson, where you built the brand that it is today, have won 2 NC’s in 3 years. Have permanent job security barring a complete collapse or moral failure.

2) Come to Alabama to follow one of the greatest coaches in CFB history, immense and at times unreasonable expectations, constant shadow of not 1 but 2 legendary coaches. Anything less than 10 win seasons and you’re gone.

If I’m Dabo, give me Door No. 2.

This just about sums it up, from a commenter at SB Nation’s Roll Bama Roll:


And yes they kicked our ass.

Hell yeah.

As a side option, maybe don’t go after Dabo, but do go after his D coordinator, Brent Venables, who’s annually one of the most sought head coaching candidates around but hasn’t gone anywhere, in part because he has a son on Clemson’s roster and in part because the Tigers have already made him the second-highest-paid D coordinator in history:


Lupoi ain’t cutting it ... we need to offer Brent 3 million a year to come to Bama.

The #FireSaban hashtag got moving during and after the game. I don’t feel like trying to figure out what’s sarcastic and what’s not, but I’m going to put five tweets here, and the odds tell me at least one of them’s real.


Matthias Alan@NeerAlan

Others on the Bama internet were just stuck in a pit of sadness.

This seems both obviously true and yet ridiculous to even say:

I love Saban and Bama but this is worse than 2007 LaMo loss

We had the better players, supposedly the better coaches and we still got our arse beat by 30.

Pure arrogance by the coaching staff to not take what they were giving us. Even take away Tuas two gifts and we still lose by 14.

FOUR trips inside the 20 with jack shite to show for it. We get inside the 20 and abandon the run.

The defense quit but this loss is solely on the coaching staff. A very poorly prepared team.

“LaMo” refers to ULM, one of Saban’s clear worst losses ever.

Here’s a really weird thing to be mad at your QB about:

Tua is being a sore loser

Not giving any cred to Clemson’s defense.

I’m a little disappointed.

What kind of epic shot did Bama’s QB take at Clemson? It appears to be a line from his postseason press conference, when, after being asked what Clemson did to confuse him on his two interceptions, Tagovailoa only said: “I don’t think it was anything that they were doing that stopped us. That was totally a bad decision. It was a poor decision on my part.”

Enormously disrespectful.

This comment is just brutal:

Embarrassing on all fronts. Bet Tua’s relatives wish they stayed home.

We’re a long way from hoping Tua can overcome the Hawaii-to-Alabama language barrier, folks.

Of course, some sought to assign blame in different directions. Two obvious targets: an alleged gambling conspiracy and Drake.

This poster at Bama’s 247Sports message board has the scoop

Just heard from a source there was a ton of money on this game.

2 of our coaches and some refs are being linked to an “agreement”.

Wait for the fallout.

And this Redditor knows exactly where to turn:

Some of the blame goes to this bandwagoning fucker

Another Bama fan wrote:

I hate drake and his degrsssei ass. If I want to listen to rap I want to listen to real rap. Not Canadian rap music.

(Note that Clemson fans quickly got Drake out of the paint after the program’s official Twitter account briefly offered him a spot on the Tigers bandwagon.)

Still, many Tide fans jumped straight to the reconciling phase.

A commenter at Roll Bama Roll found the good in the historic loss.

Silver lining

I closed on my house today, annnnnd

Just freed up a lot of space on the DVR!

(I can relate.)

What if this was a good thing in general?

People won’t like this, but...

People won’t like this, but this is exactly what Bama needed. From the coaches, to the players, all the way to the fans. Bama needed to be humbled. Clemson is just plain better and it showed tonight. Got to go back to work in the off-season and get back to the basics.

Had Bama won, Saban probably would’ve stopped trying.

And this is so deep, you should have to pass a swimming test to read it:

Lose this one with dignity

It happens. Everything in the world that could happen has happened.

Profound as hell. Roll Tide. We’ll see you next season.

Charles Barkley thanks Clemson for beating Bama

NBA all-star, basketball Hall of Famer and well-known media personsonality.

When Auburn's Iron Bowl nemesis Alabama lost to Clemson 44-16 in college football's national championship game Monday night, Barkley was quick to pounce on the Tide. During an NBA telecast on TNT, Barkley was all smiles when talking about Bama's drubbing in California.

Cardi B, Solange, Kacey Musgraves, Avett Brothers and Lumineers also set for Tennessee festival

PhishPost MaloneChildish Gambino, Solange and Cardi B lead the 2019 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, which returns to Manchester, Tennessee from June 13th to 16th.

The Avett Brothers, the Lumineers, Kacey Musgraves, Odesza, Brandi Carlile, Courtney Barnett, the National, the Lonely Island, John Prine, Marin Morris and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James are also booked to perform at the 18th annual Bonnaroo.

On Friday night, Childish Gambino will serve as headliner before Phish takes the stage for what’s billed as a late-night set; the Vermont jam band, who last played the festival in 2012, will also perform two headlining sets on Bonnaroo’s Sunday night. Post Malone will lead the Saturday night festivities.

In addition to its trademark Superjam – headlined in 2019 by EDM artist Griz on Friday night – this year’s Bonnaroo will feature an all-star Grand Ole Opry headlining set with special guests on Thursday night.

Tickets for the 2019 Bonnaroo go on sale Thursday at the festival’s website. Check out the full Bonnaroo lineup below:


Bonnaroo 2019 lineup: Phish, Childish Gambino, Post Malone, Cardi B and more

Bonnaroo will be in Manchester, TN on Thursday, June 13 through Sunday, June 16 Michael Schwab, Nashville Tennessean

Phish, Childish Gambino, Post Malone and Cardi B are among the biggest acts booked for the 2019 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, taking place June 13-16 in Manchester, Tenn.

On Tuesday, Bonnaroo revealed this year's lineup, which also includes The Lumineers, Solange, The Avett Brothers, Odesza, Kacey Musgraves, Hozier, Brandi Carlile, The National, Brockhampton and The Lonely Island.

2019's lineup sees Bonnaroo continue to evolve, as hip-hop and R&B acts gain ground and conventional "rock" moves further down the bill.

Still, the booking of Phish is an unmistakable throwback to the festival's earliest years — when it was a haven for "jam band" fans.

This will be the jam giants' third time headlining Bonnaroo, following appearances in 2009 and 2012. Frontman Trey Anastasio also headlined the first annual Bonnaroo, and the whole festival, in fact, was modeled after Phish's own epic outdoor events.

Phish is playing over two nights at this year's fest: a "Late Evening" set after Childish Gambino on Friday, and a two-set opus on Sunday night.

Another notable change with this year's Bonnaroo lineup: it's only being presented in a daily format.

Gone are the days of one giant sprawling lineup, with 100-plus acts listed in order of (presumed) importance. You'll find Bonnaroo has already broken down the acts by day — a move that plays down who, exactly, is "headlining" this thing, and also gives the second-and-third-tier acts a nice visibility boost.

It also gives the "Grand Ole Opry" the surprising honor of being the first name you'll see on the lineup poster. The legendary country radio show will return to Bonnaroo for the second straight year in 2019, and will move to Thursday night from last year's Sunday night slot.

Other Nashville names include John Prine, Maren Morris, Ruston Kelly, The Wood Brothers and All Them Witches.

What do you think?

Written by top40

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.


Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.


Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
