Hot Performing Stocks To Own For 2019

Facebook is on track for its worst day in more than five years, and it’s dragging the stock market down with it.

The Dow fell as much as 493 points on Monday and is in negative territory for the year. Facebook tumbled 7%, helping to pull the S&P 500 down 1.7% and the Nasdaq 2.2%.

Big tech companies, including Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX)and Google (GOOG), have helped contribute to the market’s climb, but all four dropped Monday. The S&P’s tech sector fell 2.9%. It was the worst performing sector on the index.

Facebook is under pressure from lawmakers in both the United States and the UK after more than 50 million users’ data ended up in the wrong hands.

“When you have real damage to a large enough company, that translates into the indexes as a whole,” Brad McMillan, chief investment officer at Commonwealth Financial Network, said.

Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar has called on Zuckerberg to appear before Congress to testify about “what Facebook knew about misusing data from 50 million Americans in order to target political advertising and manipulate voters.” John Kennedy, a Republican senator from Louisiana, joined Klobuchar in calling for Zuckerberg to testify.

    Tesla (TSLA) is rising Monday, thanks to a bullish note from Piper Jaffray.

    Analyst Alexander Potter and his team boosted their rating on the car maker from Neutral to Overweight, and increasing their price target from $223 to $368. He writes that the call comes after driving a Tesla for seven months and meeting with the company last week.

    He admits that the stocks valuation is rich by any conventional metric, and it could be a bumpy ride, as shares shift around on headlines about the Model 3. Yet ultimately he writes that investors ignore Tesla at their own risk.

    More detail from the note:

    Tesla’s products have a captivating impact on consumers and shareholders alike;this advantage will be difficult to replicate.In the minds of its customers, employees, and shareholders, Tesla isn’t just another company.

As they scramble to catch up, we think Tesla’s competitors only make themselves appear more desperate. With this in mind, even if the Model 3 production launch goes badly, we think customers (and more importantly shareholders) will withhold judgment.

    We sympathize with bears – but their (arguably rational) arguments probably wont matter. In many ways, TSLA seems to play by its own rules. The company burns through cash at a rate that better-established companies would likely be crucified for – especially considering TSLA’s rickety balance sheet and penchant for raising equity. Tesla’s production timelines are unreasonably fast, at least based on “expert” opinions in the automotive industry, and the company spurns various industry norms.
