Nova 227 allows near immediate ROI even for isolated pockets of subscribers or devices Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 10, 2017 Baicells Technologies, a provider of disruptive global LTE solutions, has announced at Wireless Internet Service Providers’ Association’s (WISPA) annual “WISPAPALOOZA” show the commercial release of a fully-featured LTE base station as a user cost of below $1,400 called the Nova 227. The Nova 227 is in stock at multiple Baicells distribution partners such as Double Radius, ISP Supplies, and WAV, Inc. It is common for private network operators, as well as commercial operators, to have small clusters of subscribers or devices that need to be connected, but may be isolated or otherwise difficult to economically connect. This often forces even LTE-based operators to use low cost and low performance Wi-Fi repeaters in an attempt to connect these pockets of users profitably. The Nova 227 was designed specifically for such … [Read more...] about Baicells Technologies Announces Radically Low-Priced LTE Outdoor Base Station
NEW YORK (AP) - Donna Brown visited a Whole Foods for the first time in at least five months with one goal: see how much Amazon had cut prices. She did buy almond milk, yogurt and lunch meat, but doesn’t plan to quit her usual grocers, Walmart and HEB, where she says she finds bigger selections and lower prices. “I am a comparison shopper,” says Brown, a part-time administrative assistant in Austin, Texas. Amazon made a splash right away as the new owner of Whole Foods, slashing prices Monday on baby kale, avocados and ground beef. That attracted some customers, but whether shoppers who’ve found cheaper alternatives will come back, or those who never visited will give Whole Foods a try, may help determine what kind of effect the blockbuster deal has on how people get their groceries. Shoppers who talked with The Associated Press this week say what they want most of all is lower prices and one-stop shopping. Stores are competing fiercely to attract them. … [Read more...] about What grocery shoppers want: Low prices, one-stop shopping
No one should invest in a stock based on just a single metric like a low price-to-earnings ratio. That being said, finding companies that trade below the market's multiple, yet still produce substantial free cash flow, seems like a good way to begin winnowing down the field to a more manageable level. In a market as overheated as this, you would think it would be hard to find such reasonably priced stocks, but read on to see why I think American Outdoor Brands (NASDAQ: AOBC), Best Buy (NYSE: BBY), and Camping World Holdings (NYSE: CWH) represent good opportunities to consider for investors looking for low P/E stocks. Smith & Wesson brand owner American Outdoor Brands has been beaten down because of fears that demand for guns is drying up following the election of Donald Trump. With a firearms-friendly administration in the White House and a Republican-controlled Congress, … [Read more...] about Best Low P/E Stocks to Buy in August
NEW YORK (AP) — At a Target in upper Manhattan, shoppers can pick from 19 types of ketchup, including well-known names like Heinz and Hunt's. At the Aldi next door, the three options range from 99 cents to $1.79. All are the chain's own brands, which doesn't seem to bother shoppers attracted by the low prices."If you look at the ingredients, it's the same thing. A lot of people don't realize that," said Anabel Rosado, a bank supervisor who was browsing the snack aisle.Aldi and its European rival Lidl, which opens its first U.S. store this week, are hoping to change the way people shop with their smaller, no-frills stores filled mostly with house brands that tend to cost less. Whole Foods, which has fought the "Whole Paycheck" reputation, is also moving into the discount sector with an offshoot chain named after its 365 … [Read more...] about Low prices, few choices: Discounters remake grocery shopping

NerdWallet Wire Published: May 10, 2017 10:50 AM CDTUpdated: May 10, 2017 3:37 PM CDT One of the surest ways to get turned off from investing is to bet on a loser. Unfortunately, the culprit for a lousy pick can often be found by looking in the mirror. Buying stock in a company involves inherent risks often beyond your control: The company could file for bankruptcy, endure a prolonged PR nightmare or flounder as its revenue dries up. But investors also find ways to justify terrible investments. If you've described your logic for investing in a particular company using one of the following phrases, back away from the "buy" button. 1. 'It's cheap.' "Cheap" stocks have an understandable appeal - you can buy more shares. But basing investment decisions on price alone is problematic. There might be a reason the stock price has plummeted or was low to begin with, including company- or industry-related dynamics, broad economic factors or dwindling support from big investors. Considering a … [Read more...] about 5 Awful Reasons to Buy a Stock
Many low-priced stocks are speculative investments, but there are some exceptions. Q: Are any stocks under $10 per share worth buying now? First of all, it's important to point out that for the most part, a stock's price is an arbitrary number. Think of it this way: If Company A has 1 million outstanding shares of stock that trade for $5, and Company B has 100,000 shares that each trade for $50, both companies are worth the exact same amount of $5 million. Having said that, there are some advantages to lower-priced stocks. For one thing, you may be able to invest more of your money. As I write this, one share of Amazon.com trades for $938. If you have $1,500 to invest, you can only afford to buy one share of Amazon, leaving $562 of your money sitting on the sidelines. Lower-priced stocks also allow you to buy more shares, which is important if you like to use options strategies, as options trade in multiples of 100. One sub-$10 stock I like right now is Sirius XMÂ (NASDAQ: … [Read more...] about Ask a Fool: Are there any stocks under $10 worth buying?
Valeant Pharmaceuticals (NYSE: VRX) has been more bullish about the prospects for brodalumab, now branded as Siliq, than anyone. Amgen bailed out on thepsoriasis drug after late-stage study results raised concerns about Siliq causing patients to have suicidal thoughts. AstraZeneca publicly stated that it would move forward without Amgen, but soon afterward began shopping the drug to potential buyers. Seeing a potential bargain, Valeant scooped up Siliq. The drug won U.S. regulatory approval in February. Valeant recently announced that it is pricing Siliq at a list price of $3,500 per month, making it the least expensive IL-17 inhibitor on the market. But will low pricing for Siliq be enough to really help Valeant turn things around? Image source: Getty Images. Promising market More From Fool.com There are currently two other IL-17 inhibitors approved to treat psoriasis. Novartis (NYSE: NVS) won approval for Cosentyx in 2015. Eli Lilly (NYSE: LLY) gained approval for Talz in March 2016. … [Read more...] about Will Low Pricing for Siliq Be Enough to Help Valeant Turn Things Around?
Transocean Offshore (NYSE: RIG), Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE: CLF), Freeport McMoRan (NYSE: FCX), KBR Inc. (NYSE: KBR), and Array BioPharma (NASDAQ: ARRY) are low-price stocks with intriguing catalysts that could spark a rally in their share prices. Here's why it may make sense to add these stocks to portfolios now. 1. A turnaround in the making When rigs aren't in use, rig companies such as Transocean Offshore have to cut their day rates to avoid losing contracts to competitors, and the one-two punch of declining rig activity and lower day rates can sink sales and profit. IMAGE SOURCE: GETTY IMAGES. Last year, a decrease in utilization to 46% from 60% caused Transocean Offshore's revenue to fall to $974 million in the fourth quarter from $1.85 billion the year before.Â Although Transocean's sales fell last year, rebounding crude oil prices are lifting the number of active land rigs, and if oil prices continue marching higher, then oil and gas companies could boost spending … [Read more...] about 5 Stock Picks Under $15 to Buy in March Business Markets and Stocks News
NEW YORK (AP) — Joelle Daddino is making it difficult for stores to make money. Like many Americans who've grown accustomed to deep discounts, Daddino has become so obsessed with sales that she refuses to shop any place that isn't having one. "If I don't have a coupon or it's not on sale, I just won't buy it," says the Yaphank, N.Y., resident. During the recession, retailers had more sales to lure cash-strapped Americans into stores. Now, that strategy has backfired. It has bred a group of deal junkies that won't shop unless they see "70 percent" signs or yellow clearance stickers. They're a thorn in the side of most retailers because the discounts it takes to get them into stores eats away at profits. In fact, retailers' annual profit growth was cut in half between 2006 and last year, according to a survey of 122 merchants by Retail Metrics, a research firm. So, big chains like J.C. Penney and Lowe's are trying to wean sale-addicted customers off of sales in favor of … [Read more...] about Why Walmart Can Pull Off ‘Everyday Low Prices’ But Everyone Else Keeps Failing
