Hot Growth Stocks To Invest In 2021

Medical product specialist OraSure (NASDAQ:OSUR) trailed the market last month by shedding 16% compared to a 3% spike in the S&P 500, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

The decline contributed to significant losses for shareholders recently, with the stock down nearly 40% in the past year.

So what

Investors reacted harshly to OraSure’s fourth-quarter results, which in early February showed that sales fell 11% overall thanks to a drop off in its key genomics division. On a conference call with investors, management explained that this decline was due to the scaling back of purchases from a single large customer in the consumer DNA testing industry.

Now what

That customer has reduced its purchasing plans going forward as a result of its new promotions strategy. That move led OraSure to project weak sales for the fiscal first quarter. Management does believe operating trends will bounce back through the next three quarters of 2019, but investors still appear to be taking a cautious approach with the stock until they can see evidence that revenue gains and profitability won’t be permanently pressured by OraSure’s shifting selling environment.

    Uber unveiled its IPO on Thursday with a stunning warning to investors: It may never be a profitable company. Although the ride sharing app has 91 million customers and values itself at up to $100 billion, the company has been embroiled in multiple scandals and has struggled to retain those customers in an increasingly competitive environment. Concerns about Uber’s massive valuation has hurt its rival Lyft Inc. (NASDAQ: LYFT), which went public on March 29. Shares of Lyft are trading just above $61, well below the IPO price of $72. Oil prices are continuing their impressive run, the best in three years. WTI crude is flat this morning at $64.52 per barrel, while Brent crude is sitting at $71.38. Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says that oil prices will rocket even higher from here. And if you want to make real money, you need to do this now.

Best Value Stocks For 2021

Autodesk: Restructuring, subscriber growth and reasonable expectations

It has been more than a year now since I last used my keyboard to declaim about Autodesk (ADSK). At the time, I basically commented that I thought the shares had gone too far, too fast. Of course, subsequent to that call the shares raced upward and finally peaked at $130, more than 64% above the price they had attained when I decided to be prudent in assessing fair value for this name. The other week, my call got a little bit of redemption when the shares slumped 18% in the wake of a poorly received earnings forecast. At this point, the shares are only 34% above where they were when I advised readers to take profits. Not the best piece of valuation work to paste in my scrap book. About all I can say in self defense is that the IGV index, against which ADSK share price performance would be logically measured, has appreciated 40% over the same 12 months.

But regardless of my blunder back then, the issue to be addressed in this article is what happens next. Is Autodesks transformation on target? What does the so-called net sub adds miss mean to investors? And what interpretation should be placed on the companys announcement of a restructuring. Ultimately, it is these three factors that have been responsible for the shares losing almost 20% of their value in just a few days, with some signs that they (the shares) have entered investor purgatory. From my perspective, investor purgatory is probably a reasonable place to look at ADSK shares – not when they are broadly beloved and making almost daily new highs. As it happens, the shares are still well beloved by analysts who werent too worried about what disturbed investors. For a change, I’m in sync with the preponderance of analysts.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Thursday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, as market participants were uncertain how to respond to conflicting messages on the geopolitical and macroeconomic fronts. By most readings, the U.S. economy continues to do well, but a delay in trade talks between leaders of the U.S. and China spurred more nervousness about whether tariffs could hold back economic growth globally. Some bad earnings results also weighed on investor sentiment. Dollar General (NYSE:DG), Cloudera (NYSE:CLDR), and Smart & Final Stores (NYSE:SFS) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Stocks to Watch Today: HSBC, NAVI, LUV
    Shares of HSBC Holdings Plc. (NYSE: HSBC) fell more than 2% in pre-market hours. The slide came after the bank announced that it anticipated “a weaker global economic outlook.” The bank also issued a warning about the upcoming Brexit and said that many of its customers in the United Kingdom are “understandably cautious about the immediate future.” The firm also issued a weaker earnings report than expected. The company to watch today is Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI), which is the largest student loan servicer in the country. Sallie Mae spun off the company in 2013. It has 12 million customers and services about $300 billion in loans. While no one likes student loans, a few key metrics show this stock is a raging buy right now. Here’s what you need to know to get your trading week started. Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) is under scrutiny from the Federal Aviation Administration. According to reports, a probe is underway on whether the company has failed to calculate checked baggage loads on flights correctly.

Wall Street wants&a;nbsp;more stimulus from China. More money from the government is a backstop to equities, so why not? Sadly, judging by this week&a;rsquo;s &a;ldquo;two-sessions&a;rdquo; meeting in Beijing, they are not going to get what&a;nbsp;the Chinese government used to give.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Generally speaking, when a retailer decides not to accept a certain type of credit card because of high interchange fees, American Express (NYSE:AXP) or Discover (NYSE:DFS) are the most likely to go. However, in a surprise move, some Kroger-owned(NYSE:KR)stores are no longer accepting Visa (NYSE:V) for that exact reason.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    In this week’s episode of Industry Focus: Financials, host Jason Moser and Motley Fool contributor Matt Frankel look over the biggest news in the sector this week. Grocery giant Kroger (NYSE:KR)put some pressure on Visa (NYSE:V)to lower its fees in much the same way that so many retailers used to refuse AmEx (NYSE:AXP)cards. What does this mean for the future of fintech companies like Visa, Discover(NYSE:DFS), and MasterCard(NYSE:MA)? Green Dot(NYSE:GDOT) and Square (NYSE:SQ)reported earnings, and the market seems to be missing the bright long-term future for both. MercadoLibre (NASDAQ:MELI)saw new highs as its changing business model delivers even more potential. And, as always, the hosts share some stocks on their radar.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The credit card industry has come a long way over the long run, and both Mastercard (NYSE:MA) and Discover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS) have survived to become major players in the payments space. Mastercard’s payment network spans the globe, with billions of cards issued and the company participating fully in international growth. Discover has a more limited audience, but it also profits from the interest and fees it collects by offering its own cards — even though that also introduces an additional risk to its business model.

  • [By Matthew Cochrane]

    The past year was a rough one for Discover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS) shareholders. In 2018, Discover’s stock price fell 23% and, though it has made up some of those losses this year, it is still well off its all-time high set early last year. Most frustrating for Discover shareholders, perhaps, is that the company performed fairly well throughout this period, even as its stock suffered. When Discover released its 2018 fourth-quarter earnings late last month, investors might have breathed a sigh of relief just because its shares didn’t immediately drop afterward.

    Think of the patience that Warren Buffett has. Over his lifetime, the Oracle of Omaha has seen his fair share of market plunges and losses. When Kraft-Heinz (Nasdaq: KHC) tanked in late February, for example, his company, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK), lost about $4.3 billion… in a single day. Yet, Buffett remains steadfast in his investments. He knows that when he purchases a wonderful company, he can hold onto it “forever.” He’s clearly laid out his investment philosophy in his shareholder letters… buy great companies at fair prices and let compounding (and American ingenuity) go to work for you.

    Case in point: Kraft Heinz (Nasdaq: KHC). This consumer-staple company has turned out to be anything but safe and steady.

    You’ve likely heard by now that shares of the world’s fifth-largest food-and-drinks company lost 27% in a single session on Friday, February 22. And Kraft halved its dividend, too. A whopping $15.4 billion write-down of its acquisitions of Kraft and Oscar Mayer was just part of the bad news; the company also disclosed a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation of its procurement accounting practices.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, PFE, AAPL
    Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) will likely generate a lot of buzz on Monday. Three days ago, company CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla would remain a publicly traded firm. The statement comes just weeks after Musk tweeted that he had secured investment to take the company private at $420 per share. That tweet spurred an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and a lawsuit by short sellers of Tesla stock. TSLA shares were off 3% this morning. All eyes today are on Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) stock. The drug giant is poised to release the results of its phase 3 study for its drug Tafamidis. The specialty drug targets a heart disease known as transthyretin cardiomyopathy. Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) hit a historic milestone on Aug. 2. The tech giant’s market capitalization topped $1 trillion, making it the first firm to ever hit that value. The company continues to churn profits as more firms tap into its product pipeline. AAPL stock predictionsare a dime a dozen, but the fact is that this stock remains a bargain because of its price/earnings ratio. We explain why AAPL stock is still a bargain. Look for earnings reports from HEICO Corp. (NYSE: HEI) and American Wordmark Corp.(Nasdaq: AMWD).

    And while Ensco has taken its share of asset writedowns in recent years to decommission older, non-economical vessels, it has also been one of the biggest beneficiaries of consolidation. In 2017, it acquired Atwood Oceanics, a smaller company with a young, high-spec fleet of floating vessels, and more recently agreed to merge withRowan Companies(NYSE:RDC), which has a high-quality fleet of jack-up rigs and a strong backlog of work for that fleet.

    And while offshore still has a ways to go, I think investors should do well to buy Ensco at current prices. At recent prices, its shares trade for about 24% of tangible book value.Furthermore, it’s also a 23% discount to the book value ofRowan Companies(NYSE:RDC), which will merge with Ensco sometime in the first half of the year. It’s a substantial discount to more typical book value multiples these companies have carried during healthy offshore drilling environments:

    While September was a good month for Ensco, the company made an even bigger splash in October by agreeing to buy fellow offshore driller Rowan (NYSE:RDC) in an all-stock deal. Ensco believes that the combination with Rowan will generate $150 million in annual cost savings while boosting its cash flow per share starting in 2020.

Included in PSA&a;rsquo;s latest financial report was news perennial value cruncher Opel Vauxhall, which lost about $20 billion this century while under the stewardship of GM and was bought last year by PSA, has apparently turned a profit already.

Jeffrey Tambor has signaled that he may not return to Amazon Studio’s “Transparent” after harassment allegations surfaced against him.

The “Transparent” star made a statement through his publicist on Sunday in which he also said allegations of harassment are “simply and utterly untrue.”

Tambor, 73, reportedly has been accused by at least two people. He is also being investigated by Amazon, according to the website Deadline.

“Playing Maura Pfefferman on ‘Transparent’ has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life,” Tambor said in the statement Sunday. “What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago.”

“I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to ‘Transparent,'” he said.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2021

On Wednesday, our Elite Opportunity Pro newsletter suggested a speculative entry into small cap Actionable Intelligence solutions stock Verint Systems (NASDAQ: VRNT):

“Today’s new idea is one of those potential takeout candidates considering the need for large and mega-caps to continue growing their top and bottom lines via acquisition, and there’s clearly been plenty of that going on these days. Not only does Verint Systems Inc. (VRNT) offer potential value around current levels, just yesterday the stock moved sharply higher on abnormally high volume. And, the technical event came on no news or looming rumors…”

“….Technically, I’ve included tow charts of the stock below, a weekly and a daily. As you can see on the weekly chart here, although VRNT has definitely seen better days, you can also see the stock has continued to build a base for several months now. Additionally, when you drill down into the daily chart, you can see the stock just recently retraced 5/8th’s of a pretty nice move, and then just yesterday moved sharply higher on what appears to be some pretty large fund buying.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Unlike the group above, Kimco Realty Corporation (NYSE: KIM) is a shopping mall real estate investment trust (REIT) trading far below its all-time highs. But it still looks expensive. While its open-air shopping malls are located mostly in the top metropolitan markets — and mostly from grocery-anchored centers at that — it’s fighting a long-term e-commerce trend. Kimco may be an income stock, but this does not mean that it won’t decline if its results disappoint or if the market deteriorates. I would be careful with KIM at this time. 

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Real estate investment trust (REIT) Kimco Realty (NYSE:KIM) owns retail properties. With the retail industry in a state of flux, often referred to with the hyperbolic term “the retail apocalypse,” investors haven’t been too keen on the company’s shares of late. In fact, the shares are 45% off of the highs reached in mid-2016, and the yield is over 6%, higher than it has been since 2011 despite annual dividend hikes since that date. For those who can see past the retail apocalypse hype, though, Kimco is worth a deep dive.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    But that’s not the full story, either. Kimco Realty (NYSE:KIM), one of the nation’s largest shopping-center owners, lost around 19% in 2018, yet it outdistanced the S&P and the REIT average in January with a 16% gain. That’s roughly 6 percentage points better than Retail Opportunity Investments did. Why?

    Thursday was another down day for the stock market, with new pressure coming from international moves on the macroeconomic front. The European Central Bank signaled that it was ready to provide more accommodative monetary policy, reversing a previous tightening stance and showing its concerns about the prospects for economic growth in the region. Yet favorable earnings reports continued lifting shares of certain individual companies. Rosetta Stone (NYSE:RST), ArQule (NASDAQ:ARQL), and Fly Leasing (NYSE:FLY) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of ArQule (NASDAQ:ARQL) rose over 70% today after the company reported full-year 2018 operating results and provided full-year 2019 guidance. That said, investors are probably used to wild swings in the stock price by now. The development-stage pharma didn’t turn in a particularly impressive performance last year. Management expects revenue to drop significantly in the year ahead as collaboration revenue dries up, which will also widen operating losses.

General Motors (NYSE:GM) is facing a proxy contest from Greenlight Capital. This has been known for a while, but the level of concern from General Motors was unknown. That is until tonight when a phone call was received asking if the white proxy ballot was received.

Naturally, the General Motors Board would prefer that the Greenlight green proxy card be tossed and or ignored. However, given the weakness of the stock price, there are likely to be many frustrated investors that might be open to shaking up the board.

Best Financial Stocks To Buy For 2021

Most people like a good dividend. While it’s nice to get soaring stock prices, a steady dividend pays the bills during more difficult markets. Given the collapse in interest rates recently, more investors have turned to dividend-paying stocks. Many investors own these higher-yield dividend stocks to replace bonds. That’s fine. It’s a valid strategy.

However this approach exposes investors to more risk. With a bond, you are guaranteed to get your principal back at maturity. Sure, the interest rates are low, as of late, but your capital is safe unless the issuing company defaults. With government bonds or CDs, the risk is virtually nil. Stocks, by contrast — even conservative ones — run the risk of dramatic capital losses. Many of the U.S.’ soundest companies still fell 30%-40% during the financial crisis.

    Sure, I will invest more in certain high-confidence picks than others, but without going overboard. This might limit the overall impact that a triple-digit winner makes in my High-Yield Investing portfolio — like the 156% gain we made on CME Group (Nasdaq: CME) when we sold in May 2018 — but it will also soften the blow from a laggard.

    Investors looking to make money on China should pay attention. While the United States is focusing this week on resolving issues with North Korea, the real elephant in the room remains China. President Trump has extended the artificial March 1 deadline on tariffs in hopes of striking a deal with the world’s second largest economy. However, it remains very unclear what will happen in the coming weeks. Investors should prepare themselves accordingly. Money Morning Quantitative Specialist Chris Johnson has scoured the numbers and given investors a number of ways to make money on this massive geopolitical trend, right here. We are seeing some problems on the trading front from CME Group Inc. (NYSE: CME). The Chicago-based exchange operator halted trading for three hours Tuesday night after a glitch caused an outage. GME Globex is a massive platform that enables the trading of stocks, interest rates, forex exchange (currencies), commodities, and other assets. Pay close attention to the headlines, as it’s still unclear if this was an internal issue or a cybersecurity event.
