Top Gold Stocks To Own For 2019

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied triple digits in Friday trading, on track to close out the quarter on a high note. Still, the blue-chip index is negative for the year to date, and some of its components have undergone meaningful technical damage in recent months.

A select group of underperformers is precisely what Piper Jaffray highlighted in a note to clients this week, when the firm identified five Dow stocks it deemed the “weakest links.”

Shares of Goldman Sachs, 3M, McDonald’s, IBM and Caterpillar comprise nearly a quarter of the index on an aggregate basis, and all “appear to be breaking down technically,” wrote Craig Johnson, chief market technician. Of the five beaten-down names, however, some say Goldman Sachs looks most likely to see a relief rally ahead.

Though its shares have entered into a so-called technical death cross, a typically bearish sign wherein a security’s 50-day moving average falls beneath its 200-day moving average, Johnson told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Thursday that its relative strength index would suggest it’s firmly in oversold territory and could see a bounce from here.

    Sandstorm’s due diligence is thorough, they don’t just invest in any company. They like West Africa because they understand the area and the opportunities that exist there. Sandstorm is a royalty and streaming company, so they make these investments and receive cashflow deals that often kick in much later on. But they have already established a presence in Burkina and have deals in place with larger companies like Orezone Gold (TSXV: ORE) and Endeavour Mining (TSX: EDV). Sandstorm’s investment also potentially gives us access to their marketing department through something they call Launch Lab, and it looks like it will really benefit our own marketing efforts and will expose us to more opportunities over the coming year.

5 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

U.S. equities are skidding sideways on Wednesday as traders worry about the volatility being seen in the bond market, with long-term Treasury yields on the slide once more. This is a strong recession signal, raising fears that the Federal Reserve did permanent damage with its rate hike campaign.

With the S&P 500 still hanging around the 2,800 level, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average remains near the 26,000 level, investors are understandably getting impatient. What a perfect time to reconsider the benefits of dividend stocks, which literally pay you to wait for the market to resume its upward march.

I screened for cheap dividend stocks that are showing some upward movement, trading above their 50-day moving average, with a 3% or higher dividend yield, positive earnings growth, and a reasonable price-to-earnings and price-to-sales valuation.

Here are five to dividend stocks watch:

Ford (F)

Ford (NYSE:F) shares look ready to break up and out of a consolidation going back to October as F inches closer to its 200-day moving average. Ford stock carries a 6.9% dividend yield and trades at a price-to-sales multiple of just 0.2. The company is in the midst of changing its product lineup to focus on electrified vehicles, SUVs and trucks including an upcoming Mustang-inspired electric SUV.

The company will next report results on April 24 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of 26 cents per share on revenues of $36.53 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 23, earnings of 30 cents per share matched expectations on a 0.5% rise in revenues.

Principal Financial Group (PFG)

The stock provides a 4.3% dividend yield and trades at a price-to-sales ratio of just 1.

The company will next report results on April 30 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.25 per share on revenues of $3.68 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 29, earnings of $1.11 missed estimates by 18 cents on revenues of $3.5 billion.

The company recently shrugged off of a downgrade by analysts at Standpoint Research. The stock trades at a forward price-to-earnings multiple of less than 8 and carries a 3.1% dividend yield.

The company will next report results on April 30 before the open. Analysts are looking for earnings of 85 cents per share on revenues of $2.32 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 29, earnings of $1.14 beat estimates by 12 cents on a 7.8% decline in revenues.

Hot Value Stocks For 2019

Emotions and psychological influences obviously affect decision-making. Fear, confidence levels, anger and greed are just a few of the very human factors that play a role in not only how individual investment portfolios fare but in how entire markets perform.

Ideally, the decisions made by investors are entirely objective and data-driven. That is rarely the case, however. People are incapable of escaping themselves. Benjamin Graham, the “father of value investing” and author of the seminal works “Security Analysis and the Intelligent Investor,” famously declared in the latter (published way back in 1949, mind you) that “the investor’s chief problem — and even his worst enemy — is likely to be himself.”

The mental roadblocks humans tend to throw in front of their efforts to make sound decisions have come to be known as “cognitive biases.” Cognitive biases are so apparent and so inherent that there’s no disputing their existence.

Some CVS stores are now selling CBD products

Corrections & Clarifications: This story has been updated to reflect the most recent information on states where CVS plans to sell CBD products.

Select CVS locations in seven states are now selling CBD, a nonpsychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

Hemp-derived cannabidiol, known as CBD, will be sold in topical products including “creams, sprays, roll-ons, lotions and salves,” CVS Health spokesman Mike DeAngelis said in a statement to USA TODAY Thursday.

The seven states where the products are available are: California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and Tennessee.

CVS Health CEO Larry Merlo discussed the company’s move in an interview Thursday on CNBC’s Mad Money with host Jim Cramer.

“Anecdotally, we’ve heard from our customers that have used those products that, gee, it’s helped with pain relief for arthritis and other ailments,” Merlo said in the CNBC interview. “We’re going to walk slowly, but we think this is something customers are going to be looking for as part of the health offering.”

But those looking for edibles won’t find them at CVS, one of the world’s largest drugstore chains.

“We are not selling any CBD-containing supplements or food additives,” DeAngelis said.

DeAngelis said the chain was working with “CBD product manufacturers that are complying with applicable laws and that meet CVS’s high standards for quality.”

Cannabis got a major boost in December when President Donald Trump signed off on an $867 billion Farm Bill that gave a green light for hemp to be cultivated on a large scale.

Unlike marijuana, another cannabis species, hemp has almost none of the psychoactive compounds that cause a user to get high. Now that it’s no longer labeled a controlled substance, more businesses have the opportunity to create hemp-based products, from tinctures to lotions.

Here’s how advisors turn real estate into a steady cash flow

Investments in real assets, whether on the equity side or the debt side, offer seemingly endless options for fixed income. If you can build it or finance it, you can invest in it.

One easy-to-understand way to attain real estate participation for clients is through real estate investment trusts, which allow individual investors to buy shares in commercial real estate portfolios that generate income through leasing and property management from a variety of properties, said certified financial planner Chris Schiffer, executive vice president with AEPG Wealth Strategies in Warren, New Jersey.

“Generally, when the economy is doing well, there is a higher demand for real estate, benefiting the REIT through appreciation, higher occupancy and higher rent payments,” he said. “Also, REITs can protect in down markets, due to their low correlation to stocks.

“The REIT still collects its rents in recessions and down markets, which is paid out to the investors.”

Schiffer cautioned that some REITs may be excessively leveraged, overly speculative or illiquid (if non-traded).

More from Fixed Income Strategies:
Advisors look beyond mainstream bond funds
A happy retirement is about more than just money
Investors stock up on nontraditional bonds, strategies

Some advisors are using so-called interval funds, non-traded closed-end funds that offer to buy back a percentage of outstanding shares at different time intervals, to generate income for portfolios.

For his part, Michael Ciccone, CFP, investment advisor with Tradition Capital Management in Summit, New Jersey, uses these in the forms of private real estate funds that invest directly in income-producing real estate properties, and private real asset funds that invest in timberland, farmland and infrastructure.

“Because the majority of these interval funds are invested in private non-traded funds, with just a small public security sleeve for liquidity, these investments are largely insulated from market volatility, and instead the [net asset values] are mainly driven by the appraised values of the underlying properties,” he said. “This serves to provide investments with very stable and low volatility growth and income production.”

In contrast are limited partnership vehicles, or LPs, available only to accredited investors and less liquid than interval funds but, in general, more efficient and able to deliver better returns, all else being equal, said Eric Mancini, CFP, director of investment research and wealth advisor with the Traphagen Financial Group.

Mancini uses limited partnerships for both private real estate credit and equity. LP investments are more “pure,” he said.

“Most interval funds hold some amount of public securities or cash, in addition to private investments to enable the liquidity needs, usually quarterly,” said Mancini. “This … waters down the pure returns from the private investments and sometimes can create cash drag.

“With LPs, the 100 percent, or nearly so, allocation to the private investments, along with their limited needs for liquidity — usually the investor has no liquidity for one to three years or more — enables the manager to really maximize returns.”

Another illiquid structure used for fixed income is private preferred stock.

“It’s a type of private equity with less risk than traditional private equity and less reward, but it provides fixed-income payments,” said Matt Chancey, CFP, a Tampa, Florida-based investment advisor with ClaraPHI Advisory Network. He has used this type of vehicle for assets such as institutional quality self-storage buildings, industrial warehouses and even tugboats.

The stock is held for a defined period, often from three to seven years, and generally offers a higher yield than a public preferred stock because a premium is paid to the client for giving up liquidity. Furthermore, because it does not trade in public markets, it is not susceptible to investor behavior and volatility, he said.

“Generally, when the economy is doing well, there is a higher demand for real estate, benefiting the REIT through appreciation, higher occupancy and higher rent payments.” -Chris Schiffer, executive vice president at AEPG Wealth Strategies

Not to be overlooked is direct ownership of rental property, according to Kristin Sullivan, CFP, owner of Sullivan Financial Planning in Denver.

“In the modeling for retirement income planning, I’ll often show the impact of keeping the rental property and using the income throughout retirement versus selling at some point in the future,” she said. “Realistically, most people won’t want to be landlords into their 80s, so it’s good to see how that change would affect the retirement plan.”

Investing in the debt side of real estate, Diane Pearson, CFP, wealth advisor with Legend Financial Advisors in Pittsburgh, uses two types, via mutual funds:

Non-agency (non-governmental) residential mortgage-backed securities, which are senior secured loans, usually with a variable rate, generally containing jumbo rate mortgages that are no longer underwater.Asset-backed securities, such as corporate leases on properties such as airplanes, oil rigs and commercial property.

“This [debt] type of asset class makes sense in certain times of the market … in rising-interest-rate environments, so you want to evaluate if you’re in the right part of the cycle,” she said.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday saw a solid start to the week for the stock market, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted a triple-digit gain and the Nasdaq Composite managed to rise more than 1%. Earnings season continues to move forward, and many investors are looking to Tuesday’s State of the Union address as an opportunity to see whether the Trump administration changes course with its plans following the Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives in January. Meanwhile, though, consolidation is taking hold in several key sectors of the economy, and many companies are seeing their share prices move dramatically in response to potential deals. Ultimate Software Group (NASDAQ:ULTI), Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), and Ellie Mae (NYSE:ELLI) were among the top performers today. Here’s why they did so well.

Watch Warren Buffett speak at The Gatehouse’s Hands Up for Success luncheon

[The stream is slated to start at 1:30 p.m. ET. Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.]

Warren Buffett, the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, is speaking with CNBC’s Becky Quick at The Gatehouse’s Hands Up for Success luncheon in Grapevine, Texas.

Buffett said in his annual letter to shareholders that he wants to make an “elephant-sized” purchase, but noted that prices were were too high.

“In the years ahead, we hope to move much of our excess liquidity into businesses that Berkshire will permanently own. The immediate prospects for that, however, are not good: Prices are sky-high for businesses possessing decent long-term prospects,” Buffett said in the letter, which was released Feb. 23.

Here are the winners and losers from the stock market’s first quarter of 2019

The first quarter has been a banner period for Wall Street.

The S&P 500 is up more than 12 percent this quarter and is on pace to notch its best start to a year since 1998. The broad index is also set to post its biggest one-quarter gain since 2009.

Accompanying the S&P 500 in its ride high to start off 2019 are the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Nasdaq Composite and the Russell 2000, which tracks small-cap stocks. The 30-stock Dow is up over 10 percent, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq has rallied more than 15 percent. The small-caps Russell is up nearly 14 percent.

Leading the way higher for U.S. stocks this quarter was the tech sector, which is up nearly 20 percent in the period. Tech giants Apple and Microsoft — two of the biggest publicly traded U.S. companies — rose more than 15 percent each for the quarter, but the sector’s best performer is an unlikely stock: Xerox. Shares of the copy and fax machine maker are up more than 60 percent to start off the year. They are also among the best-performing stocks in the entire S&P 500.

Other top-performing sectors include real estate, energy and industrials. Real estate got a boost from lower interest rates, while higher oil prices boosted energy. Meanwhile, optimism around U.S.-China trade negotiations lifted industrials.

Not every sector performed as well, however. Health care and financials are the biggest laggards among S&P 500 sectors, rising around 5 percent and 7 percent, respectively.

At the individual stock level, cosmetics giant Coty and fast-casual restaurant chain Chipotle Mexican Grill are the best-performers, followed by Xerox, Hess and Xilinx. Kraft Heinz, Biogen and CenturyLink rang up the rear, as they all fell around 20 percent.

Global stocks also performed well this quarter, with Irish shares surging more than 26 percent, more than doubling the S&P 500’s performance year to date. Stocks in Greece, Italy and Canada also rose more than 12 percent each. Japan’s Nikkei index is up more than 5 percent along with Indian stocks, lagging their global counterparts.

Stocks weren’t the only assets to do well in the first quarter, however.

Lean hog futures surged around 50 percent this quarter, while gasoline and U.S. crude oil futures are both up more than 25 percent. Coffee, wheat and cocoa futures fell sharply this quarter, sliding at least 6 percent.

Hot Biotech Stocks To Watch For 2019

Sage Therapeutics Inc. climbed the most in two months after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved an expedited development plan for what the company says could be a practice-changing depression treatment.

The biotechnology company only has to run a single 450-patient trial, which will allow for a compact, reasonably cost-efficient program that can assure both safety and effectiveness, Chief Executive Officer Jeff Jonas said in an interview. The medicine, SAGE-217, and the study design are different from those that have haunted psychiatric drugs in the past, according to Jonas. Late-stage trials have tended to be very large given safety concerns or the need to overpower the doses to heighten the effectiveness.

“We don’t have to overpower these studies,” Jonas said by phone. “This is a completely new animal, this is a different way of treating depression.”

#lazy-img-328520636:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based drugmaker aims to use SAGE-217 to help “re-write the textbook on how depression is treated,” Jonas said. The medicine offers the potential for a two-week dosing period in both major depressive disorder and post-partum depression, rather than chronic treatment.

    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.

Hot Biotech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Inc.(ALNY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALNY)Q4 2019 Earnings Conference CallFeb. 7, 2017, 4:30 p.m. ET

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY) was downgraded by investment analysts at BidaskClub from a “sell” rating to a “strong sell” rating in a research note issued on Wednesday.

  • [By Jim Crumly]

    You would think that when a drug company that’s been working for 16 years to develop drugs using a novel therapeutic approach wins its first-ever approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), confetti would fall from the ceiling and its investors would be celebrating a huge stock gain the next day. That didn’t happen this week for shareholders of Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY), with shares dropping 6.6% the day after the announcement, and there were two main reasons for that.

  • [By Brian Orelli]

    Earlier this week, Dicerna released promising interim phase I data for its lead drug, DCR-PHXC, in patients with primary hyperoxaluria type 1 and type 2. The company plans to start a trial to be used to support an FDA approval in the first quarter of 2019, but that’ll put it behind Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY), which is about to start a phase 3 study testing its drug, lumasiran, in patients with primary hyperoxaluria type 1. Hopefully, Dicerna can use some of its new capital to help accelerate enrollment in its trial to try to catch up to Alnylam.

Hot Biotech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Biogen Idec Inc(BIIB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    The acquisition of AveXis resulted in an $80 million milestone payment to Regenxbio in Q1 and an additional $100 million payment in June. If AVXS-101 wins an OK, Regenxbio will receive sales royalties in the mid single to low double digits, which could add up to hundreds of millions of dollars annually. For perspective, Biogen’s (NASDAQ:BIIB) Spinraza became the only FDA-approved treatment for SMA in late 2016, and its sales are already tracking at an annualized pace of over $1.2 billion, even though only 40% of patients see an improvement on it.

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    Biotech traders get heaps of attention, but buying promising young drugmakers and holding them for the long term is a far easier way to get rich. Case in point: Spreading $10,000 evenly among shares of Biogen Inc. (NASDAQ:BIIB), Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG), and Gilead Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ:GILD) around this time in 1998 would have made you a millionaire already. 

  • [By Jim Crumly]

    As for individual stocks, Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) made headlines with positive results from a trial of an Alzheimer’s drug, and PriceSmart (NASDAQ:PSMT) fell after reporting earnings.

Hot Biotech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Amgen Inc.(AMGN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    Ajovy prevents migraine headaches by targeting the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), and it isn’t the first of its kind to earn an approval. The Food and Drug Administration green-lighted Aimovig from partners Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and Novartis (NYSE:NVS) in May, and by August, weekly prescriptions data prompted a Leerink analyst to predict $480 million in 2019 sales.

  • [By ]

    Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) for example, announced FDA approval of its heart-attack prevention therapy on Dec 1. Immediately after, the stock popped 15% in less than two months, moving from $177.20 to $199.

  • [By Lee Jackson]

    This biotech giant remains a top stock for investors to buy and a safe way to play the massive potential growth in biosimilars. Amgen Inc. (NASDAQ: AMGN) has been a biotechnology pioneer since 1980 and has grown to be one of the world’s leading independent biotech companies. It has reached millions of patients around the world and is developing a pipeline of medicines with breakaway potential.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    The way to determine where a puck is going to be requires evaluating its direction and speed. I used a similar approach to identify five stocks with fast-growing dividends: Boeing (NYSE:BA), Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN), CVS Health (NYSE:CVS), Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN), and AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV). Here’s why these stocks could be great picks for dividend-seeking investors.
