Adding to this combustible environment is the trade war between the U.S. and China. From a common sense perspective, the best stocks to buy appear to be boring, but stable companies. Certainly, that instinct is a viable one at this juncture. Nevertheless, entertainment stocks offer potential upside, especially if the broader markets take another dip.

Nvidia GeForce Now is bleeding games, is it still worth your time and money?

Article | March 8, 2020

Nvidia GeForce Now hit the streets like a month ago, and in what was a surprise to literally no one, it is the best game streaming service on the market right now. It's not without its flaws, though. For starters, it seems like all kinds of developers are suddenly pulling their games from the service, from AAA heavy hitters like Bethesda to Indie developers like Hinterland Studio, which just yanked its game The Long Dark off of the service. Because GeForce Now lets you play games you "own" something I'll get into in a bit its a little discouraging that game developers can basically cut off access to games you've paid money for.

Article | March 8, 2020

The virtual reality market has been hailed as the "next big thing" for decades, but VR has repeatedly disappointed consumers with mediocre hardware products and software experiences. But in recent years, a wave of refined devices narrowed the gap between consumer expectations and reality. The VR market's future has yet to be written, but investors who believe in this budding market should consider buying these four tech stocks. Sony's PlayStation VR is the best-selling VR headset in the world with over 5 million shipments since its launch in October 2016. That only represents a sliver of Sony's installed base of 110 million PS4s, but that foothold has encouraged developers to produce more stand-alone VR games and add-on experiences for PS4 games.
