Hot Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019

February 20, 2018: Markets opened lower Tuesday and appear to be on track to close in the lower half of the chart. The DJIA never traded in the green today and only the Nasdaq Composite even had an outside chance at closing above the break-even line. Bond yields have continued rising and a stronger dollar are causing some equities investors to re-think current stock valuations.

WTI crude oil for March delivery settled at $61.90 a barrel, up 0.3% for the day. April gold dropped 1.9% on the day to settle at $1,331.20. Equities were headed for a lower close about 10 minutes before the bell as the DJIA traded down 1.15% for the day, the S&P 500 traded down 0.73%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded down 0.25%.

Bitcoin futures (XBTH8) for March delivery traded at $11,710, up about 15.5% on the CBOE after opening at $10,440 this morning. The digital currency’s trading range for the day was $10,3300 to $11,800.

The DJIA stock posting the largest daily percentage loss ahead of the close Tuesday was Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) which traded down 9.76% at $94.54. The stock’s 52-week range is $69.33 to $109.98. Volume was about five times the daily average of around 9 million shares. The company reported disappointing results this morning and offered only a lukewarm forecast.

Hot Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019: Cameco Corporation(CCJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Cameco Corporation (NYSE:CCJ), the largest publicly traded uranium miner, has been struggling along with the moribund price of the nuclear fuel it mines. The stock is down over 70% since commodity markets started to tumble in 2011. The early 2016 commodity upturn, meanwhile, has seemingly left uranium behind. Investors have ample reason to worry, but for more intrepid stock buyers, Cameco’s low stock price could be a long-term opportunity.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Cameco (NYSE: CCJ) and Abtech (OTCMKTS:ABHD) are both basic materials companies, but which is the better investment? We will compare the two companies based on the strength of their analyst recommendations, risk, profitability, dividends, valuation, institutional ownership and earnings.

  • [By Peter Graham]

    This morning before the market opened, uranium producer Cameco Corporation (NYSE: CCJ) reported Q1 2018 results which should be looked over by investors in other potentialuranium players like small cap Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX-V: AAZ; OTCMKTS: AZURF) as CCJwould be one of the worlds largest uranium producers, a significant supplier of conversion services and one of two Candufuel manufacturers in Canada. Cameco Corporation alsosays itscompetitive position is based oncontrolling ownership of the worlds largest high-grade reserves and low-cost operations.

Hot Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019: BlackRock, Inc.(BLK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) , Citigroup Inc.  (C)  Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC)  and BlackRock Inc. (BLK) reported first-quarter earnings on Thursday and Friday. Here are five things the reports show about the economic impact of President Donald Trump’s tax cuts and how the Federal Reserve’s interest-rate hikes are affecting consumers.

  • [By Keith Fitz-Gerald]

    Here are just a few of the companies we’ve discussed:

    Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA): China is Team Musk’s second-largest market, with sales of more than $2 billion there in 2017 alone. Shorting a company like Tesla right now might prove to be full of profit potential. In fact, premium subscribers were recommended just that at a time when the stock was moving down in the past, and they had the opportunity to close out on two legs of the same trade for a total of 121.41% gains. Just click here for more information about this strategy. BlackRock Inc. (NYSE: BLK): CEO Larry Fink laid out why China is a critical priority in his company’s 2017 annual report, citing the same three primary “Unstoppable Trend” subsets we prioritize when it comes to the Red Dragon as being the driver… demographics, economic, and regulatory shifts. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA): The e-commerce giant is the only company capable of giving Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) a true run for its money and – gasp – potentially winning the fight. It’s working on a plan to list shares in mainland China, not Hong Kong, as many people believe and as has been widely reported. This could immediately unlock a huge pool of captive money that could double shares when Chinese investors have access through a secondary listing.

    Tactically, though, the situation is very different.

    Others think the muted market reaction to solid earnings from financial services giants such as JPMorgan & Chase (JPM) , BlackRock (BLK) and Bank of America (BAC) hint at a market just itching to sell off again. JPMorgan is a holding in Jim Cramer’s Action Alerts PLUS.
