    Digging deeper into two seemingly healthy dividend yields proves this point. Investors may discover that coal producer Alliance Resource Partners LP (NASDAQ:ARLP) and gold miner Gold Fields (NYSE:GFI) are two dividend stocks to avoid. Meanwhile, the high yield of Brazilian chemical manufacturer Braskem (NYSE:BAK) passes the test — and could even grow stronger in the near future.

Top Casino Stocks To Own For 2019

Amaya’s stock has been on a wild roller coaster ride this year, with catalysts ranging from the CEO (David Baazov) being accused of insider trading, to takeover rumors, to failed mergers and now a formal bid by the aforementioned CEO. There have certainly been a lot of hopes and headaches, but I believe there is a strong underlining long case to be made on Amaya. I wrote a blog post about it the day before it released its Q3 earnings, my basic argument was that it is intrinsically undervalued due to market overreaction on merger discussions and there was still the possibility of a buyout by the former CEO at a significant upside. It seemed like a win-win. Well, when the earnings were released, not only were the results impressive but Baazov launched a formal bid at C$24 per share (approximately US$18) or a 30% upside from the previous Friday’s Close. Whether this private takeover succeeds or not, this stock is poised for significant long term growth.

Amaya (NASDAQ:AYA) runs the world’s largest online gaming (casino) empire in the world. It runs many valuable brand names especially in the online poker business (PokerStars and Fulltilt) but is now increasingly moving into sports betting and other online casino games. It is also the fastest growing and most well positioned to take advantage of online gambling legalization as well as the inherent scalability of the internet. This is a company which has seen its revenues increase from below US$200M just a few years ago to over US$1.2 BILLION for the trailing twelve months. Reviewing its results and its future growth prospects, it will be clear that this firm is undervalued.

    Xerox (XRX) late Sunday terminated its merger with Fujifilm at the same time that it reached a deal to add five Icahn-backed directors onto its board and replace its controversial CEO. It marks a major victory for the insurgent investors at the document technology company’s gate.

    Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has a similar pattern as Scientific Games. The difference is that this stock may be in play for a potential takeover, either by investors Carl Icahn and Darwin Deason or private equity firm Apollo Global. As with any M&A story, this stock is entirely at the mercy of the headlines. While the stock would likely pop higher if the board agrees to a takeover, it's equally as likely that the stock would continue to fall if a deal can't be reached.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2018

Last week’s earnings announcement by Total SA (NYSE:TOT) served notice to the markets that the company will be on the offensive going forward.

The company beat earnings on the top and bottom lines by a wide margin, earning $.96 a share on Revenues of $42.3B, beating street estimates by 8%. It also increased its dividend to 0.62 euros.

As I study the energy space, it appears to me that the best bang for the buck for Total SA may be buying Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) at a discount.

I recently wrote an article about BP plc (NYSE:BP) (which I believe is making a yearly low today) buying Chesapeake, but after more research, it seems Total SA would be even better served by buying this undervalued company.

One of the knocks against Total SA is its lack of US shale presence. In my view, buying up Chesapeake would instantly give Total SA the world class US shale acreage that would otherwise take years to accumulate.

Chesapeake CEO Mr. Doug Lawler recently gave a presentation at the Credit Suisse Energy Summit where he shared some valuable information about the company and its future. I encourage interested investors to click on the link above for detailed information.

On Tuesday morning President-elect Donald Trump backed out of a meeting he had called with The New York Times. Hours later, he was in the Times building, complaining about the paper’s coverage of him.

The visit included an on-the-record meeting at which Times staff was able to ask questions of Trump, as several Times reporters live-tweeted the proceedings. What resulted was a wide-ranging discussion — but one that began with Trump criticizing the Times’ reporting, as he had similarly criticized coverage in a meeting with network executives and anchors on Monday.

“I have great respect for the New York Times. I have tremendous respect,” Trump said, according to the Times’ Mike Grynbaum. But, he added, “I think I’ve been treated very rough… I will say the Times is about the roughest of all.” According to Grynbaum, Trump also said, “You could make the case the Washington Post was bad, but every once in while I actually got a good article.”

The Times’ Maggie Haberman tweeted that Trump said he felt he’d been treated unfairly during the campaign, but wanted to improve his relationship with the paper.

    This specialty chemical company, best known as a lithium producer, has seen its shares fall over 23% this year. This has been despite Albemarle consistently beating analyst estimates and posting solid results.

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    It should be noted that FMC Corp together with Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) and Chiles Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM) forma so-called lithium oligopoly that tends to dominate global production. A recent Bloomberg article noted that Albemarle Chief Executive Officer Luke Kissam had said in March that hes also eager to see how the value settles for the FMC lithium spinoff. Iftheprice-to-earnings ratio is high enough,then they would look to create a pure-play lithium business byselling off non-lithium units. If FMC Corp and Albemarle Corporation do end upcompletingthese spin-offs, thatwill be good news for the valuations of all lithium players as the market will put clear valuation numbers onthese larger pure play lithium businesses which will help provide valuation benchmarks for other small cap lithium players.

    That said, there may not be a better way to build wealth. It’s the tactic Warren Buffett relied on to become a billionaire. In fact, he didn’t reach the milestone until he turned 56 years old. Investors looking for great companies they can buy and hold for the next decade (or longer) should take a closer look at consumer water technology specialist A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS), lithium producer Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), and biopharma enabler Repligen (NASDAQ:RGEN).

day trading options: Pretium Resources, Inc.(PVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting triple-digit losses even as broader benchmarks had much smaller moves. Market participants largely focused their attention on the inflation front, as March consumer price index numbers showed a 0.2% rise in the core rate excluding food and energy. Year-over-year price changes have accelerated, seemingly giving the Federal Reserve more justification to continue raising interest rates. Yet even though many stocks generally react unfavorably to inflation fears, there were some big gainers that had good news. Hilton Worldwide Holdings (NYSE:HLT), Pretium (NYSE:PVG), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
