Ad revenue is Google's bread and butter, and it's becoming more important to Facebook and LinkedIn too.

Google (GOOG) impressed the market when it reported its second-quarter results on July 16. Revenue was up 11 percent year over year, but that is not the reason investors were happy. The firm is focusing on its core strengths, and this has the market excited.

In the second quarter, Google earned $6.99 per share on revenue of $17.72 billion. The higher revenue was encouraging, but it does not justify the stock’s P/E of 29. Fortunately, Google is reigning in costs. In the past, the firm spent heavily on robotics, self-driving cars, social media and Google Glass. None of the initiatives are accretive to earnings.

Ad sales still make up the majority of Google’s revenue. With $12.4 billion in ad revenue from Google sites and $3.6 billion from other sites, the company is still a digital advertising giant. Facebook’s (FB) ad sales may eventually overtake Google’s, but that may take some time.

 A few years ago, Facebook did not have any ads on mobile. In the last year, user engagement stood at one in seven minutes on mobile. Instagram also helped the social media company win a large share of mobile users’ time. By February, Facebook had two million active advertisers.

In the first quarter of 2015, Facebook’s advertising revenue grew by 46 percent, with 73 percent coming from the mobile channel. Total ad revenue was $3.3 billion. For the second quarter, Facebook expects revenue to weaken primarily due to the strong dollar.

Google’s focus back on its core businesses should help boost online ad sales. Investors already expect Facebook’s dominance in social media to continue. Expectations are high on the jobs board market front, too. 

LinkedIn (LNKD) is up as much as Facebook in the last three years:

In the first quarter of 2015, LinkedIn generated $638 million in revenue. Much of that came from subscriptions to the career networking website. Ad revenue accounted for $119 million during the quarter, up 38 percent year over year.

When LinkedIn reports on July 30, the stock could rocket higher. The company warned last quarter that new product releases and a transition in the company’s sales force may negatively hurt the company’s short-term outlook.

Our country relies on it, but very few much-needed improvements to US infrastructure are taking place.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Vice President Joe Biden made a joint appearance Monday afternoon to announce major infrastructure upgrades to LaGuardia Airport. Adding to Biden's "third-world country" description of LaGuardia, Cuomo said the airport was "un-New York" and revealed that construction on a new LaGuardia airport will begin next year. The project is expected to cost the Port Authority of NY & NJ $4 billion.

LaGuardia is but one example of US infrastructure that badly needs an update. There are the Hudson River rail tunnels—which service Amtrak and NJ Transit trains between New York and New Jersey—the Albion River Bridge in coastal California and the nation's wastewater and drinking water systems, to name a few.

According to the American Society of Civil Engineers' 2013 report card, which assesses and grades all segments of US infrastructure, things are in poor shape. The overall grade was a D+, and an estimated $3.6 trillion would need to be invested in infrastructure by 2020 to improve the situation.

Per Governing.com, the five largest infrastructure projects currently underway in the US are the Dulles International Airport Corridor Metrorail Project, Otay Mesa East port facility construction, modernization of O'Hare International Airport, expansion of the Crescent Corridor freight rail network and replacing the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Combined the projects will cost $21.4 billion. 

While there are trillions that need to be invested in US infrastructure, the fact remains that they haven't been yet. Perhaps this is why infrastructure ETFs with exposure to potential US projects haven't been performing well. In fact, all of the following funds have underperformed the market on a monthly quarterly and year-to-date basis. 

Could the LaGuardia airport project help some of these ETFs turn things around?

How much is that ATM manufacturer in the window? In the case of NCR, it's $10 billion.

ATM-maker NCR Corporation (NCR), which boasts a market capitalization of $5.2 billion, is in play. Two private equity firms—Blackstone (BX) and Carlyle (CG)—are teaming up to buy the company for $40 a share, or $10 billion.

NCR is in the business of running transactions. This may seem boring, but last year, it generated $6.5 billion in annual sales and is expected to see $6.81 billion at the end of 2015.

The stock is trading at a discount to the bidding price, but it is not inexpensive. Its P/E is 31.33, while the forward P/E is around 10.

With the way shares are trading, it is uncertain if the buyout will happen at all. Current shareholders are valuing the stock at the right level because the purchase price would include NCR’s roughly $3.2 billion debt.

Another reason is that the electronic payment process industry is a better investing option than NCR. There is already strong interest for cryptocurrency, but that is not an investment idea. PayPal (PYPL) is a legitimate business that holds significant potential. The company made $2.16 billion in revenue in Q4 2014.

PayPal is growing. The company acquired Xoom, a digital remittance company. It also bought Paydiant, a white-label mobile wallet platform. Lastly, PayPal’s Braintree unit services businesses by providing them with online payment services.

NCR may or may not be bought out, but if it is, there is some upside. For investors too impatient to wait, PayPal is another transaction-centric company that has the potential.

The Chinese stock market had a terrible Monday, falling the most it has in one day in eight years.

After three weeks of government-induced calm, the Chinese stock market dropped by over 8 percent on Monday, its biggest tumble since February 2007. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 8.5 percent, the tech-heavy Shenzhen Composite slid 7 percent and the CSI300 index, which includes the largest firms on the Shanghai and Shenzhen indexes, declined 8.5 percent.

Monday's Chinese stock market crash calls into question the sustainability of the Chinese government's intervention, which came in the midst of China's bear market earlier this month. After rising 150 percent between June 2014 and June 2015, the Shanghai Composite took a turn for the worse on June 12, losing nearly 30 percent by July 7. The Shenzen Composite lost approximately 40 percent over the same period.

To stop the collapse, the Chinese government officially prohibited major shareholders from selling shares for six months. Unofficially, the government seems to have encouraged 21 major brokerages to agree to buy $120 billion yuan worth of stocks in a market-stabilization attempt and 28 private companies to call off their IPOs.

The Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI300 ETF China A-Shares ETF (ASHR), which tracks the CSI300, is down 9.28 percent today as of 10:41 AM EST. Over a three-month period, the ETF is down 20.97 percent.

It was widely expected to happen, and thanks to the FCC, the AT&T-DirecTV merger is officially good to go.

Time Warner Cable (TWX) and Comcast (CMCSA) weren't able to do it, but AT&T (T) and DirecTV (DTV) are officially becoming one. As expected, the Federal Communications Commission announced on Friday that it approved AT&T's $49-billion acquisition of DirecTV. Thanks to the FCC's decision, which was the last regulatory hurdle for the merger, the resulting company will now be the biggest pay TV provider in the country. 

Both stocks were up nearly 2 percent as of 3:02 PM EST. 

Meanwhile, Comcast and Time Warner are down 3.45 percent and 1.52 percent, respectively, as of 3:10 PM EST. Charter Communications (CHTR)—which hopes to merge with Time Warner and, according to the Wall Street Journal, has a better chance of succeeding than the failed Comcast bid—is down 0.67 percent.

Once know for its work with PCs, Intel is embracing a new sector: the Internet of Things, or IoT.

The Internet of Things, or IoT, has become quite popular. It is now so mainstream that even Intel (INTC), a chip giant in the computer world, is talking about it. The firm is adjusting to a permanently declining consumer computing market. Should everyone follow suit and embrace IoT?

Semiconductor manufacturer STMicroelectronics (STM) is another big player in the IoT field. Back in May, the company showcased the ways its 32-bit microcontroller board saves energy, improved efficiency, and enhanced services for the “smart city. " BlackBerry (BBRY) is also focusing its efforts on IoT. Intel selected the firm’s QNX system to be used in smart cars. Additionally, Sierra Wireless (SWIR) is expanding its device-to-cloud solutions so that it includes wireless connectivity services for the IoT.

Intel’s second-quarter earnings confirmed that the decline in desktops and notebooks sales was alarmingly high. The PC business fell, but the server—data center—business grew by 10 percent. NAND revenue grew 40 percent, thanks to a healthy IoT segment. During the second quarter, Intel earned $0.55 per share on revenue of $13.2 billion, beating the consensus estimate of earnings of $0.50 per share on $13.04 billion. In the next quarter, the company expects to see $14.3 billion in revenue.

Mobile is still a struggle for Intel, but the company has its Atom x3, x5 and x7 processors on deck. A 4G version of the x3 will start shipping out in 2016. Integrating a modem network with the processor is giving Intel a competitive advantage.

Intel is managing the IoT segment conservatively. Potential growth from this sector is high, but Intel will limit capital expenditure until the market gets bigger. Investors are not yet recognizing the potential of IoT, which is why the stock is approaching a yearly low. When mobile and IoT become more meaningful to earnings, the stock’s performance could very well improve.
