As we approach the end of November and get closer to the last month of December (yes, it’s been almost three years since the pandemic began, in case you’ve forgotten!), the reality of how quickly with which Samsung rolled out the Android 13 and the One UI 5.0 update for Galaxy devices suddenly starts appearing.

Samsung’s first official Android 13 release was for the Galaxy S22 series, but it has consistently added a new name to the list of devices that have received the coveted update since then. This week alonea little more than five devices received the Android 13/One UI 5.0 treatment, and for anyone who cares about updates, it’s one of the best Thanksgiving gifts they could hope for.

Samsung’s efforts to speed up the process of updating the billions of smartphones it sells are impressive, that’s an undeniable fact. But clearly no one expected what is happening this year! Android 13 and One UI 5.0 are on nearly 30 Galaxy devices at the time of this writing, which means Samsung could be well on its way to fulfilling its goal to update all eligible phones and tablets in 2023 (a goal given to us by Samsung in a recent interview, which is worth the detour.)

And while these updates have been rolling out for a few weeks, things got really busy just as Thanksgiving rolled around. Chance? Maybe, maybe not, but one thing’s for sure: Samsung has developed a preference for delivering updates right around major holidays (mainly Christmas), and this year is no different.

Oh, and speaking of Thanksgiving and the holiday spirit, Samsung is also offering some pretty crazy deals on its devices as part of its Black Friday sales, which you just shouldn’t miss. Just visit Samsung.com and take the reins from there, and maybe buy a gift or two for your loved ones!

If you’re looking for new phones, we recommend taking a look at the Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Z Flip 4 if you prefer a new version of smartphones, or a Galaxy S22 series device if you want the best in a normal form factor. In the mid-range section, the Galaxy A53 is one of your best bets. Samsung is also offering discounts on TVs and other home appliances, so shop your favorites while they’re hot!

Or simply update your Galaxy smartphone or tablet to One UI 5.0 if the upgrade is available in your country or for your device. If you buy any of the previously mentioned devices, remember that these big updates will come at least for the next three years after you buy one of these devices, and that beats everything the competition in the Android sphere has to offer you.

Cyber ​​Monday 2022: What to expect in terms of sales and offers https://eumag.org/cyber-monday-2022-what-to-expect-in-terms-of-sales-and-offers/ Tue, 22 Nov 2022 01:16:52 +0000 https://eumag.org/cyber-monday-2022-what-to-expect-in-terms-of-sales-and-offers/ Although Black Friday sales tend to spend more time in the limelight, Cyber ​​Monday remains one of the biggest holiday shopping days of the year.

Although Black Friday sales tend to spend more time in the limelight, Cyber ​​Monday remains one of the biggest holiday shopping days of the year. Many of the same discounts that exist on Black Friday will still be in effect on Cyber ​​Monday. There are also usually a few surprise offers.

If you’re planning on shopping online on Cyber ​​Monday this year, it’s worth planning ahead as best you can. Below is an overview of what you can expect from Cyber ​​Monday sales this year as well as the deals you should watch out for in 2022.

Cyber ​​Monday 2022 at a glance

Cyber ​​Monday is originally a way for online merchants to take advantage of the same boost physical stores received on Black Friday. It has since become one of the most popular shopping days of the year as more and more people have switched from shopping in person to shopping online. These days almost all major retailers participate in Cyber ​​Monday sales with some online stores like Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy often extending these sales throughout the week. So what was once just Cyber ​​Monday became Cyber ​​Week.

When is Cyber ​​Monday 2022?

This year, Cyber ​​Monday will officially take place on monday november 28. The first Monday after Thanksgiving is when online retailers traditionally offer the best Cyber ​​Monday deals. That being said, many of the biggest retailer discounts on Monday will likely be similar to those on Black Friday and there will be some weekend overlap between the two sale days. Expect Cyber ​​Monday deals to kick off at Amazon from Saturday 26 November.

Cyber ​​Monday vs Black Friday: What’s the difference?

The main difference between Cyber ​​Monday and Black Friday was that Cyber ​​Monday deals were entirely online rather than in-store. Now that the majority of retailers have moved to an online selling platform, this difference has become much less obvious. There are still plenty of local stores that will offer Black Friday sales that you can’t get online, but if you shop on Amazon, you should be able to find similar deals on both shopping days.

Where Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday differ the most in 2022 is the timing. If you don’t want to worry about holiday shopping over Thanksgiving weekend, it might be easier to wait until Monday and get similar discounts. However, some of the deals that happen on Black Friday may be gone by the time Monday rolls around.

What deals to expect on Cyber ​​Monday 2022

Many of the best Cyber ​​Monday 2022 deals are likely to be in consumer electronics. There will be a plethora of deals on 4K TVs, laptops, PC components, and more. from various retailers. You can also expect more discounts on remaining Black Friday video games on PS5, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch games and accessories. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from each of the major retailers.

Amazon Cyber ​​Monday Sale

There’s already a full Amazon Black Friday sale going on, but that hasn’t stopped the retailer from announcing some of the deals that will be available during the Amazon Cyber ​​Monday sales. According to a Press release from the retailer, the biggest discounts will be on Alex-enabled devices, Ring security cameras and headphones from the biggest brands. There will also be discounts on household appliances such as coffee makers, air fryers, etc.

When does the Amazon Cyber ​​Monday sale start? Amazon’s 3-day Cyber ​​Monday event kicks off on Saturday, November 26 with new deals throughout the weekend.

Walmart Cyber ​​Monday Sale

Walmart Black Friday deals have started in earnest, but if you’re already planning Cyber ​​Monday, you’ll want to mark the Walmart Cyber ​​Monday page. Although Walmart has yet to provide a preview of what will be on sale, the retail giant has a history of offering great deals on TVs, headphones and Apple products during this time. You can also expect solid discounts on robot vacuums and kitchen appliances throughout the week.

When does the Walmart Cyber ​​Monday sale start? Walmart will begin offering Cyber ​​Monday deals starting Sunday, November 27 at 7 p.m. ET.

Best Buy Cyber ​​Monday Sale

You can already shop Best Buy Black Friday deals right now, however, the electronics retailer still has a pretty good Cyber ​​Monday sale as well. Expect discounts on TVs, Apple devices, laptops, PCs, and just about anything that runs on electricity. There will also likely be ongoing deals on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch games and accessories throughout the week.

When does the Best Buy Cyber ​​Monday sale start? Best Buy will begin offering Cyber ​​Monday deals starting Sunday, November 27 for My Best Buy members.

Dell Cyber ​​Monday Sale

The Dell Black Friday sale started earlier this year with deals on laptops, PCs, and even game consoles. Like most computer brands, however, Cyber ​​Monday tends to be when they offer some of the biggest discounts. You can expect sales of laptops and gaming PCs with RTX 30-series GPUs during this time, as well as good laptops for work.

When does the Dell Cyber ​​Monday sale start? We do not yet know the exact date for which Dell Cyber ​​Monday Deals will begin, but it will look most like kicking off on Sunday, November 27 or Cyber ​​Monday proper in 2022.

Tips and Tricks for Cyber ​​Monday 2022

Here are some general tips for saving money (and not spending too a lot) on Cyber ​​Monday, or really any sales event!

  1. Keep an eye out for Cyber ​​Monday announcements and previews: Big box retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target will release previews for Cyber ​​Monday, usually before Black Friday even begins.
  2. Check sale prices. Not sure if the deal you are considering is a good one? If the offer is on Amazon, check camelcamelcamel.com. This site tracks Amazon prices and lets you see how much the price has dropped in the past. You can check historical prices for almost any item on Amazon. If the deal you’re considering isn’t on Amazon, check with other retailers to see how much it costs there. This will give you an idea of ​​whether or not it’s a good deal.
  3. Don’t sit too long on a good deal. Most of the best Cyber ​​Monday deals will sell out quickly, so if you see a particularly good deal on an item you want that fits your budget, jump on it before it sells out.
  4. Set a budget. If money is tight, you’ll definitely want to budget so you don’t get carried away with spending when you see offers.
  5. Make a list. Pretty simple, but If you’re doing your holiday shopping on Cyber ​​Monday, it’s always helpful to have a list of who you plan to buy gifts for. The idea is to set limits and not buy more than necessary.
  6. Use price matching. More often than not, retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon will match prices from other retailers. If you find a good deal somewhere but want to buy it from another retailer, be sure to check if it will match that price there.

Boat Stone 190 Superman DC Edition review: A starter speaker with a touch of style https://eumag.org/boat-stone-190-superman-dc-edition-review-a-starter-speaker-with-a-touch-of-style/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 06:21:20 +0000 https://eumag.org/boat-stone-190-superman-dc-edition-review-a-starter-speaker-with-a-touch-of-style/ The Boat Stone 190 Superman DC Edition comes with an interesting design, decent audio quality and long battery life.

The Boat Stone 190 Superman DC Edition comes with an interesting design, decent audio quality and long battery life. Priced at Rs. 999, should you buy it?

What do you expect from a wireless Bluetooth speaker for less than Rs. 1000? A decent deal with fast connectivity? Loud, clear audio to meet the need for music sessions paired with long battery life? And some easy commands, right? Boat takes all of these basic necessities and packs them into a beautifully designed Superman DC Edition themed Boat Stone 190. On paper, the Boat Stone 190 seems like a safe bet considering its impressive features priced at Rs. 999 and sleek design. But how does that sound in the real world? Does he compromise for a tight budget? Namely, I listened to Boat Stone 190 for over a month, and here’s what it’s capable of.

Boat Stone 190 Design

It’s like old wine in a new bottle! This updated DC edition Superman design is the main highlight of the Boat Stone 190 speaker. That’s all because we already saw the standard version a few years ago. The traditional dotted-textured design of the Stone 190 has been given a stylish twist with the addition of the Superman logo in red, printed on the blue fabric, just like Superman’s costume! However, if you’re not a Superman fan, you have the option of the Batman Edition or the Marvel Superheroes models, which are priced slightly differently.



Look beyond its design, and the Boat Stone 190 is one of the best budget portable speakers as it weighs just 182 grams. Plus, its sturdy build quality and cord-like hanging bracket make it even more practical. And yes, it also has an IPX7 water resistance rating.

Stone 190 Audio boat

Most affordable wireless speakers aren’t designed for noise-filled outdoor conditions and end up being a personal listening experience for a small area. The Stone 190 boat is no exception! Inside this sleek stone-shaped mini speaker is a 52mm speaker with 5W audio output, which is enough to fill the room with clear and loud sound. Considering its price, the Boat Stone 190 manages to cope with all kinds of music without any sound disturbance. Even at its peak, the Boat keeps the audio quality intact with clear vocals from the lyrics. Whether it’s pop or classical music, you can enjoy almost all kinds of music with loud sound. However, it ignores bass-oriented output, so fans of “bass-holic” music should look at other options.



Boat Stone 190 delivers impressive audio output on its highs and mids only; the lows are flat, leaving room for improvement here. However, the best part is that you don’t need to disconnect your speakerphone if you receive calls while streaming music as it comes with a built-in mic to attend calls. Taking calls with Boat Stone 190 was a smooth experience calculating proximity to the speakerphone.

Boat Stone 190 controls and features

It’s a simple affair – there are dedicated buttons for performing a specific task, and that’s it! Above the speaker are three classic buttons – play/pause, + volume and – volume – for multiple use cases. When you short press the volume up key, the next track will be played and vice versa. While the Play button can handle incoming calls to attend, reject them with a long press and double press to redial the last call. Apart from that, once you set up the device, its power button allows you to connect it to your smartphone in seconds.



Interestingly, you also have the option of connecting the speaker via an AUX cable with your smartphone or laptop. With this, you can switch between Bluetooth and AUX playback modes with a dedicated “Switch Mode” button on the side. Unfortunately, there is no app connection or special smart feature loaded on Boat Stone 190, but it does get a stereo link function to pair it with another speaker to be forged into one. Although there is no built-in voice assistant for interaction, the microphone allows you to take calls and talk to the voice assistant such as Siri or Google Assistant on your phone. This can be activated via a short press of the power button. That said, app link support could have been better for customizing button behavior.

Stone 190 battery life

Boat claims to offer up to 4 hours of battery life with Stone 190 in continuous use. To my surprise, I could easily play more than 6 hours of music tracks continuously, while keeping the volume around 60-70 levels. Therefore, battery life may vary with full volume. To recharge it from its zero point, I used one of my phone’s charging adapters, which took about 1.5 hours to get it recharged. There is an LED that helps indicate when your speaker is fully charged.

Verdict



Overall, the Boat Stone 190 is simply one of the best options at this reasonable price for many reasons. It’s small, light and portable with a special Superman DC themed design that delivers loud and clear audio performance for its size. Additionally, the long battery life extended the reported runtime during our test period. Fast connectivity, IPX7 water resistance, AUX cable support, and a built-in mic for calls are other perks that make it a worthwhile option.

However, you should avoid expecting low performance oriented. Other than that, it’s the poor audio output below volume 40 and the lack of button customization that sours the experience. However, if you don’t care about bass and customization, then Boat Stone 190 is one of our top recommendations at Rs. 999.

Set your water heater to this exact temperature and save money this winter https://eumag.org/set-your-water-heater-to-this-exact-temperature-and-save-money-this-winter/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 17:15:02 +0000 https://eumag.org/set-your-water-heater-to-this-exact-temperature-and-save-money-this-winter/ This story is part Tips for the houseCNET’s collection of handy tips for getting the most out of your home, inside and out.

This story is part Tips for the houseCNET’s collection of handy tips for getting the most out of your home, inside and out.

Nothing beats a hot shower after a long stressful day. But if you’re anything like me, your enjoyment is always tempered by nagging thoughts of how much that water really costs. This concern is not for nothing: hot water heating can represent 14% to 18% of an average electricity billaccording to the Department of Energy.

You have probably already noticed that your utility bills cost more than usual this year, especially your gas and electricity bills. And those will only increase more significantly this fall and winter. In fact, families are expected to pay 17.2% more for heating this winter, the highest in more than 10 years, according to the National Association of Energy Assistance Directors (PDF). This means that saving money will be a priority.

If you’re looking to save money, considering your water heater (and your hot water usage) is a good place to start. Here’s what you need to know. For easier ways to cut costs, just try turn off the lights and to do the laundry the most cost effective way. You can also consider buying a smart thermostat Or other energy efficient smart devices.

The ideal temperature to set a water heater

If you’re looking for the short answer, it’s 120 degrees Fahrenheit (about 49 degrees Celsius). Many water heaters are set to 140 degrees F as factory specs, but lowering the temperature can result in energy savings of 4% to 22% and up to $400, according to the Department of Energy. Even on the lowest setting, you should have no trouble getting your shower or dishwasher hot enough.

And the default setting of 140 F (60 C) may disappear. Recent installation manuals for Major Residential Water heater manufacturers actually require a starting temperature of 120 F (49 C).

CNET Home Tips Logo

The lower temperature might have more to do with preventing burns than saving energy. Since 140 F can cause second and third degree burns in five seconds, lowering the temperature of your water heater can protect you from financial and physical pain.

Changing your water heater’s thermostat should be a simple matter of turning a dial or entering a temperature. If you’re not sure where your thermostat is or how to read it, you can check your owner’s manual or talk to a licensed professional.

After adjusting your water heater, the Department of Energy recommends performing a simple test, as the reading from the device may be inaccurate. Once the change has been made, open the hot water faucet farthest from your water heater and measure the temperature with a thermometer. If it doesn’t meet your target temperature, adjust the thermostat and try again in two hours.

What’s the catch?

The Department of Energy lists some additional considerations if you change the temperature of your water heater.

Some dishwashers need water between 130 F and 140 F to perform optimally. So monitor the performance of your dishwasher after changing the temperature. If your dishes aren’t as clean, you may need to readjust them.

There is also a small risk of water at 120 F growing Legionella bacteria, which causes Legionnaire’s disease. The Department of Energy calls it a small risk, but if you or someone you live with has a weaker immune system, you might want to raise the temperature a few degrees. The concern is generally for tall buildings, a spokesperson for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. Recent guidance from the CDC says setting your water heater to a higher temperature can kill more germs, but the risk of scalding, especially for young children and the elderly, should be carefully monitored.

Other ways to save hot water

Besides the thermostat, you also need to pay attention to the pipes and tank of your water heater. Tank and pipe insulation can save heat when not using hot water. You can also install low-flow faucets and showerheads, which will reduce the amount of hot water you use without affecting your experience.

If you are unsure whether you can make any of these improvements yourself, consult your utility. Utilities may offer free or discounted energy efficiency fixes for the home. In some cases, someone from the utility will come and install the insulation and new showerheads for free.

In addition to adjustments to your home’s hot water infrastructure, you can adjust your habits. Take shorter showerswash clothes cold, shower instead of bathe and using a dishwasher can save hot water.

Many water heaters have an expected lifespan of around 10 to 20 years. If you need to replace your water heater, look for an efficient one. You can start with Star Energywhich will help you find energy savings Energy Star certified water heaters and provides you with buying guides for choosing brand, power source and type, like tankless or storage.

You’ll need to balance the initial costs of a water heater with the savings over time, but water heaters, like many appliances, typically have estimated energy costs disclosed before purchase.

The bottom line

An easy way to save money around the house – sometimes up to hundreds of dollars a year – is to lower the temperature of your water heater and use less hot water. When the time comes to replace your water heater, energy efficient options can help and several models are available to meet your needs.

After examining your water heater, proceed to your air conditioner, rethink the placement of your thermostat Where consider solar energy.

Is two-way charging becoming more accessible? https://eumag.org/is-two-way-charging-becoming-more-accessible/ Tue, 08 Nov 2022 09:34:56 +0000 https://eumag.org/is-two-way-charging-becoming-more-accessible/ By now, we’ve all heard of some form of two-way charging on an electric vehicle (EV) or we’ve all interfaced with it. For those who don’t know, here is a good overview of the different types of two-way charging, which include vehicle-to-grid (V2G), vehicle-to-home (V2H), and vehicle-to-charge (V2L).

By now, we’ve all heard of some form of two-way charging on an electric vehicle (EV) or we’ve all interfaced with it. For those who don’t know, here is a good overview of the different types of two-way charging, which include vehicle-to-grid (V2G), vehicle-to-home (V2H), and vehicle-to-charge (V2L).

Bi-directional charging allows the vehicle owner to use the energy stored in their car for more than driving – powering their home, delivering power to the grid or powering household appliances or even charging another EV. A number of vehicles on the market offer some form of two-way charging, including the Hyundai IONIQ, Kia EV6, Nissan Leaf, and Ford F150 Lightning. However, not all two-way charging types are created equal, and some require additional hardware, specific charging stations, and car manufacturer software to enable. Additionally, car manufacturers are adopting different versions of two-way charging. Honestly, for the general public, this can get quite confusing.

For example, one of the most common vehicles on the road offering V2G is the Nissan Leaf, which recently has been approved for V2G using Fermata Energy charging stations. However, a limitation of the Nissan Leaf is that it still uses a CHAdeMO connector, which the industry in North America and Europe has moved away from for the Combined Charging System (CCS). Volkswagen too announcement that its ID.4 lineup will have V2G by the end of 2022. However, there is no major update on this yet, other than a recent partnership with Ellia Group, a Belgian high voltage transmission operator. Ford is also in the V2G pilot phase with duke Energy, using the F150 Lightning.

In terms of large-scale V2G applications, it seems vehicle fleets are where applications really grow. Noteworthy examples include a number of electric school bus drivers Where revel inthe all-electric ride-sharing service conducting a pilot project in New York with the Con Edison utility.

If we really want a fair transport ecosystem with as many drivers as possible taking advantage of impactful technologies such as two-way charging, then the barriers to entry must come down.

V2H also attracts a lot of consumer attention. A notable example is the Ford F150 Lightning, which comes with two-way charging capabilities using a CCS connector, capable of powering your home in the event of your grid failure. However, since the vehicle provides direct current (DC) power for bi-directional charging, it requires the Ford Charge Station Pro and a Ford Home Integration System to convert power from DC to alternating current (AC) to that your house can use it. . V2L is also becoming increasingly popular as vehicles such as the Hyundai IONIQ, Kia EV6, Rivian R1T and many more offer such functionality. It’s super simple, which is why more EVs have it. V2L allows the user to plug in any standard socket in the vehicle and power the device (lights, computers, fridge, etc. – if it has a socket, your V2H vehicle can power it). However, these vehicles are not cheap. IONIQ 5 has a starting MSRP of $41,450, the EV6 $41,400 and the Rivian R1T at $68,575. The F150 Lightning has an MSRP ranging from $52,000 to $97,000.

What strikes me most about two-way billing is that there are two overarching variables that complicate consumer adoption. These variables are 1) the price of the vehicle is still too high, and 2) in the case of V2G and V2H, the vehicle still requires expensive additional technology, namely an inverter to convert the vehicle’s direct current into usable alternating current. For Exampleif you’re buying a Standard Range F150 Lightning, you’ll also need to purchase the necessary charger from Ford, along with the inverter, bringing the total cost of the additional equipment to around $5,205.

If we really want a fair transport ecosystem with as many drivers as possible taking advantage of impactful technologies such as two-way charging, then the barriers to entry must come down. Sono Motors is an automotive company geared towards affordability and access to a well-priced electric vehicle with two-way charging.

PA Engines is a new automaker based in Germany. Although he hasn’t delivered a vehicle yet, he has a pretty promising package. From the looks of it, the Sion, Sono Motors’ first vehicle, is definitely not for everyone. Its design reminds me of the early days of electric vehicles as it offers a more coupe hatchback look. However, beyond the initial design, something obviously unique is going on with the vehicle as it is completely covered in solar panels integrated into the vehicle body. On average, the panels themselves are expected to deliver around 70-150 miles of vehicle range each week, adding to the already 54kWh battery with around 190 miles. When combined with CCS fast-charging at 75kW – not ideal but not the worst considering the average DC fast-charging speed is 150kW and above – it’s an exciting package. For a more detailed dive, you can check a sneak peek from TechCrunch’s Rebecca Bellan.

After spending time with the Sion on its New York tour and speaking with Laurin Hahn, co-founder and CEO of Sono Motors, two main attributes of this vehicle stand out and have the potential to have a big impact at long term . What are they? Price and accessibility of two-way charging.

Sono Motors already has 20,000 private pre-orders ahead of its launch in Europe next year, as well as 22,000 fleet operator pre-orders. The company hopes to expand to the United States, which is why they are touring the United States. The Sion is priced under $30,000 and it offers some pretty impressive two-way charging features, namely V2G, V2H, and V2L. Hahn shared the full breakdown with me. “You see those food trucks there,” Hahn said, pointing to one of hundreds of food trucks in New York using a diesel generator to power their operation. “We’re basically going to make this process [using a generator] obsolete. “The Sion features a 3.6kW household socket as well as 11kW AC – not DC – two-way charging which is standard on all Sions. “We will be releasing the Sion chargers, which are V2G ready and V2H, and from there you just plug in at night, and it levels the car, whatever you need at home, and it becomes your home storage,” Hahn said. “It’s a huge selling point if people understand that.

The Zion Charger is something the company recently announced, claiming it will be 70% cheaper than other two-way DC chargers. Of course, a notable disadvantage using AC instead of DC is that the driver still needs a specific AC charger. However, looking specifically at price and lower barriers to entry, AC seems to win out over DC.

Overall, I tend to agree with Hahn. The Sion seems like a good package, priced under $30,000 before incentives, offering well over 200 miles of range and two-way AC charging.

In the end, I see this vehicle gaining traction, especially for the reasons mentioned. If the design of the vehicle presented on tour was final, it was still a prototype. This vehicle could appeal to a lot more people if Sono Motors is able to refine part of the exterior so that the panels themselves aren’t entirely visible.

If you are an investor, you cannot afford to buy small cap stocks.

Small cap stocks don’t get the same kind of publicity as their mega cap siblings. They’re not going to lead a segment on CNBC or the homepage of the the wall street journal on a daily basis. With market caps ranging from around $300 million to $2 billion, small cap stocks tend to go under the radar.

But some of them are solid companies and great small cap stocks to buy. They can bloat your portfolio just as well as a mega-cap – a 15% return in a small-cap stock is just as good as a 15% return elsewhere, right?

Since these seven small-cap stocks to buy aren’t as well-known, you’re more likely to find ones that might be underestimated. That’s where the Portfolio Grader comes in – my exclusive free tool that grades stocks with a letter grade, based on both buying momentum and qualitative metrics.

Enphase Energy (NASDAQ:ENPH) manufactures solar power inverters and battery storage products. Customers can install the company’s microinverters in their homes, store the accumulated energy on a battery, and use it to power their home during a utility outage.

A smartphone app lets customers see how much energy they have stored and direct power to essential devices in the event of a grid outage.

So far this year, Wall Street is a big fan. Even though the big stock market is in the red, ENPH stock is up nearly 30% on the year, and it still seems to have more room to manoeuvre. Analysts have a consensus price target of $310, giving ENPH stock another 7% of expected growth.

Enphase also consistently exceeds expectations with its quarterly earnings reports, and Q3 was no different. Revenue of $634.71 million beat expectations of $615.85 million; earnings per share of $1.25 were above expectations of $1.09, making it one of the small cap stocks to buy on expectations of continued growth.

Axcelis Technologies (NASDAQ:ACLS) didn’t hold up so well, but that’s to be expected given that tech stocks in general are having a bad year. So far in 2022, ACLS stock is down 23%, but I’m not worried.

Axcelis manufactures and markets the new generation Purion Platforms with ion implantation technology used to manufacture semiconductors. The Purion platform helps semiconductor companies maximize yields and reduce production issues.

Semiconductors have been in the headlines all year due to a combination of Covid shutdowns, huge demand for game consoles and other supply chain and industry disruptions. electronics combined to create a huge shortage of semiconductors over the past year. As this shortage begins to ease, it’s clear that demand for semiconductors – and companies like Axcelis – will continue to be high.

Second quarter earnings exceeded expectations in terms of revenue and earnings. Revenue was $221.18 million, beating expectations of $214.36 million. EPS of $1.32 was better than expectations of $1.04 per share.

ACLS will release its third quarter results on November 3. The stock has an “A” rating in my Portfolio Grader.

AMN Health (AMN)

As baby boomers enter their twilight years and Gen Xers age rapidly, the need for health care is greater than ever. AMN Health (NYSE:AMN) is a leading provider of nurse staffing services for hospitals and healthcare facilities.

With over 500 customers, AMN provides travel nurses, rapid response healthcare, staff for schools and internationally. These services seem to be in demand. The AMN estimates that a half a million registered nurses will retire by the end of this year. He also estimates that there will be a shortage of 139,000 doctors in the United States by 2033.

Business so far is good: Q2 revenue was $1.43 billion, beating expectations of $1.37 million. EPS of $3.31 beat expectations of $2.99 ​​per share.

AMN is roughly flat for the year, but reports third quarter results on November 3. It has an “A” grade in the Portfolio Grader.

Alpha and Omega Semiconductor (AOSL)

Alpha and Omega Semiconductor (NASDAQ:AOSL) manufactures products used in flat panel televisions, LED lighting, smartphones, batteries, computer equipment and telecommunications equipment.

Its most recent product, a smart motor module which is supposed to be the smallest in the industry, powers PC and server fans, seat cooling and home appliances.

So far this year, the stock is down 47%, but it looks ripe for a turnaround, as the company plans to report its first quarter 2023 results on November 3. report with high and low beats of $194.96 million and earnings of 95 cents per share.

The AOSL stock has a “B” rating in the Portfolio Grader.

Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP)

There are two reasons to love Alliance Resource Partners (NASDAQ:ARLP) as an excellent small-cap stock.

The first is its position in coal – ARLP is one of the leading coal producers in the eastern United States. Coal is still an important energy source for millions of people, even as the nation begins to slowly shift to alternative, cleaner energy sources.

High coal prices are boosting company revenues and profit margins. Alliance announcement that it sold 9.185 million tonnes of coal in the quarter ending September 30 at an average price of $59.94, compared to 8.494 million tonnes a year ago at an average price of just $42.65 the ton.

But it’s not a one trick pony. Alliance is also working to diversify its business by investing in an electric vehicle charging station company francis as well as manufacturer of electric motors Electric Infinity.

Shares of the Master LP are up 90% so far in 2022, and it has an “A” rating in the Portfolio Grader.

AdvanSix (ASIX)

You may not be aware AdvanSix (NYSE:AT SIX), but don’t be surprised if you have benefited from one of its products. The chemical manufacturer produces nylon resin, which is used in some products ranging from carpeting to food packaging to plastics and paint products.

AdvanSix is ​​also the world’s largest single-site producer of ammonium sulfate fertilizer, which is a good place to invest considering the Earth is home to 8 billion people and needs high yields to feed them. .

Second-quarter earnings were mixed, with revenue of $583.74 million beating expectations of $557.5 million, but EPS of $2.30 down nine cents from analysts’ estimates.

Wall Street will be looking a little better when AdvanSix releases its third quarter results on Nov. 4. For now, it has a “B” rating in the Portfolio Grader.

Investing in 2022 is like opening the box of an IKEA piece of furniture: the instruction manual has no words and you have to guess what to do next thanks to the images provided. Since the beginning of the year, the three main indices have plunged into a bear marketand a number of measures and indicators suggest the broader market could fall further.

While not exactly a rosy forecast, it does represent an incredible opportunity. No matter how poorly major stock indices have performed throughout history, steep declines have always been offset by bull market rebounds. This means that the current bear market is the perfect time to put silver to work.

However, investors don’t have to buy volatile stocks to build wealth on Wall Street. There are a number of relatively safe stocks which have already weathered downturns and offer reasonable long-term growth potential without the violent price swings typically associated with high-growth stocks. The following are three exceptionally low-risk stocks that have the ability to turn an initial investment of $400,000 into $1 million, including dividends paid, by 2030.

Walgreen Boot Alliance

The first safe bet that offers low volatility and the potential to generate a total return, including dividends paid, of 150% by 2030 is the drugstore chain Walgreens Boot Alliance (NASDAQ: WBA).

Are things looking good for Walgreens right now? No. A slowdown in COVID-19 vaccinations has slightly slowed foot traffic in its stores. Perhaps more pressing, a stronger US dollar threatens to weigh on its potential for gains in foreign markets.

This makes some people on Wall Street wary of putting money to work in this drugstore giant. However, this is a narrow view for a company that is making all the right choices.

For years, Walgreens embarked on a transformation designed to make business more efficient, drive organic growth and build customer loyalty. The initial report card for this conversion should result in an “A” grade.

In terms of operational efficiency, Walgreens has set a goal to reduce its annual operating expenses by $2 billion by the end of fiscal year 2022 (the company’s fiscal year ends August 31). ). Walgreens surpassed $2 billion in annual savings and successfully hit its goal one year ahead of schedule (fiscal 2021).

Of course, cutting costs only moves margins and the profit needle so far. What is much more attractive This is where the company has deployed its capital. For example, it has increased its presence in online retail in the wake of the pandemic. Despite being a brick-and-mortar-dominated retail chain, Walgreens is experiencing sustained double-digit digital sales growth.

Additionally, Walgreens has partnered with and made a majority investment in VillageMD to open up to 1,000 full-service health clinics by 2027. They will be co-located in Walgreens stores in more than 30 U.S. markets.

At the end of August, 152 of these clinics were already open. Having a physician on staff broadens the treatment landscape of these clinics and provides an impetus for repeat visits.

One final note: Walgreens is distributing a 5.4% yield and has increased his basic annual payment for 47 consecutive years. Valued at just seven times its fiscal 2022 earnings, Walgreens Boots Alliance appears to offer a very safe floor and a reasonably high ceiling.

York Water

Exceptionally low-risk stocks don’t have to be well-known to deliver triple-digit total returns. Completely off the radar water service stock York Water (NASDAQ:YORW) is the perfect example of a safe bet that can make its shareholders much richer by 2030.

Even for the most diehard utility investors, York Water is probably a name few have heard of before. It is a small-cap company ($603 million market cap) that trades an average of around 63,000 shares per day. Specifically, it operates water and wastewater utilities in 51 municipalities spanning three counties in south-central Pennsylvania. But what York might lack publicity for is more than compensated by its return on capital programwhich I’ll get to in a moment.

The beauty of water utility stocks like York Water is that their operating cash flow is very predictable. For starters, landlords and tenants have little, if any, choice when it comes to choosing their water and wastewater service provider.

To follow up on this point, York is a regulated water utility. This means that the company cannot pass on rate increases without receiving approval from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission.

Although this may seem more complicated than beneficial, it is quite the opposite. With rates known in advance, York avoids exposure to potentially unpredictable wholesale prices. This predictability plays a key role in York setting aside capital for acquisitions and its dividend without having to worry about the negative impact of these expenses on earnings.

But the real star of York Water has been its dividend. Earlier this year, I called York “Biggest Dividend Stock Ever“, because no publicly traded company has paid a consecutive dividend for a longer period – 206 years (and counting).

While its 1.8% yield may be a bit pedestrian among utility stocks, the compounded annual total return of its stock plus dividend since 1999 would put investors on track for a 150% gain on an investment. initial $400,000 by 2030 (assuming its average returns for the past 23 years hold for another eight years).A person wearing a sterile full suit with gloves holding and carefully examining a microchip.

Intel

The third exceptionally low risk stock that can turn an initial investment of $400,000 into $1 million by 2030 is semiconductor inventory Intel (NASDAQ: INTC).

Naturally, a cursory glance at Intel’s stock chart on a yearly basis might make investors feel anything but “safe.” The combination of historically high inflation, ongoing global supply chain issues, a strengthening US dollar, growing fears of a recession and market share gains by the main rival Advanced micro-systems pushed Intel shares to their lowest point in more than eight years. While cyclical stocks like Intel won’t bounce back in a snap, they can offer competitive advantages and predictability that make them solid buys.

For example, on a macro basis, semiconductor stocks look poised to benefit from certain commodities and industries becoming more technology-focused. Everything from our home appliances to cars increasingly depends on semiconductor solutions. This provides a steady growth opportunity for what often amounts to multi-year economic expansions.

More specific to Intel, its data center segment is expected to become a cash cow this decade. Although Intel is best known for its personal computing (PC) processors, it’s the constant movement of enterprise data to the cloud that is expected to drive data center demand for years to come. Even with modest market share losses to AMD, Intel still holds the bulk of the PC, server and mobile CPU market share.

The CHIPS and Science Act, which President Joe Biden signed into law in August, presents another opportunity for Intel to move the needle. Intel is spending $20 billion to bolster its foundry business and build two manufacturing plants in Ohio. The company could leverage subsidies given to the semiconductor industry through the CHIPS Act to build additional facilities in the United States.

At no time in Intel’s rich history has the business been valued so cheaply relative to its book value. When you add its 5.4% dividend yield, you have an extremely safe tech stock with what should be a solid floor below its current price.
