Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now

If a company raises its payout at an average annual rate of 15%, it will double over five years — a rapid trajectory that most dividend-growth investors will be very satisfied with. It didn’t use to be the case, but the tech sector has become a hotbed for promising dividend-growth stocks — as more companies in the industry have entered transitional business phases and are returning cash to keep shareholders happy as earnings slow.

Within that mold, here’s why Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP), and Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) should be on the shortlist for investors seeking stocks with fast-growing returned income.

Apple

Apple is transitioning to a more software-focused business to reduce its dependence on what looks like an increasingly cyclical market for its iPhone. It’s also been concentrating on returning more cash to shareholders, having made a big stock-repurchasing push and by ramping up its dividend. The company’s last payout increase came in at a hefty 16%, and there’s a good chance that management will continue to deliver rapid dividend growth while it builds up its software business and develops more substantial innovations to reenergize hardware sales.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    For instance, TerraForm Power Inc.

It can get even more obscure, like Petmed Express Inc. (NASDAQ:PETS), the online pet pharmacy that’s certainly not a household name for most people and certainly not investors.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

Biotech stocks sometimes have a stigma of being highly speculative and highly risky. But several large biotech stocks generate impressive cash flow and have promising growth prospects. And they’re not all priced for perfection, either.

We asked three Motley Fool contributors to weigh in on which biotech stocks they like. Here’s why they chose Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG), Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL), and Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) as their top picks to buy right now.

Too cheap to ignore

Brian Feroldi (Celgene): Would you believe that a publicly traded company exists today that is expected to grow its profits by 19% annually over the next five years and yet only trades for eight times forward earnings? Believe it or not, but that’s exactly what’s happening with biotech giant Celgene today.

The chipmaker has also failed to recover from its loss of GoPro business.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

The World Bank and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) have launched the first bond offering that was created and managed solely using blockchain technology. The A$100 million ($73.16 million) two-year, AAA-rated offering priced on Wednesday with a yield of 2.251%, 23 basis points above benchmark rates.

There have been other prototype bond issues using the blockchain (distributed ledger) mechanism, but those were mainly private placements. The World Bank issue, which is managed by CBA, is the first bond offering made directly to the public.

CBA executive general manager James Wall described the offering to Reuters earlier this month:

You’re collapsing a traditional bond issuance from a manual bookbuild process and allocation process, an extended settlement then a registrar and a custodian, into something that could happen online instantaneously.

The offering has been dubbed a “Bondi” bond, an acronym for Blockchain Operated New Debt Instrument and is an initial step in eliminating manual processes by moving toward a faster, cheaper automated system. Bondi is also the name of a famous Australian beach.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    What a difference one year — and some major government policies — can make.

Major manufacturers like Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ), JinkoSolar (NYSE:JKS), Hanwha Q Cells (NASDAQ:HQCL), and JA Solar (NASDAQ:JASO) will see margins squeezed as volume and sales prices fall. They were all enjoying higher margins and strong demand in early 2018, so the could reverse to net losses later this year.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks For 2019: Ambarella, Inc.(AMBA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Transforming a business can be difficult. Just ask video- and image-processing chipmaker Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA), which has been weaning itself from the action-camera and broader consumer electronics industry over the last couple of years. The company has been doubling down on industrial end markets instead, but stiff opposition awaits there, too.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Chipmakers Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) and AMD’s (NASDAQ:AMD) fortunes diverged sharply this year. Ambarella’s stock tumbled over 25%, due to concerns about its slowing sales growth and its ability to keep up with technological shifts, while AMD rallied nearly 60% as investors cheered its comeback against Intel (NASDAQ:INTC).

    Ambarella Inc. (NASDAQ:AMBA) announced decent fiscal first-quarter 2019 results on Tuesday after the market closed, detailing steady progress with its latest computer-vision chips and continued growth from the IP security and automotive markets.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Financial services companies rely on the health of the markets to bring them business from the large institutions that are their best customers. With a bull market that’s almost a decade long at this point, Wall Street has never been stronger, and that’s given a big boost to financial information technology specialist Envestnet (NYSE:ENV). Yet as volatility returns to the stock market in early 2018, some investors feared that Envestnet’s time in the sun might soon end and give way to more difficult conditions looking ahead.

Coming into Wednesday’s first-quarter financial report, Envestnet investors had high hopes that the fintech specialist would continue to produce good growth. Envestnet exceeded expectations, and if anything, customers seem to be more appreciative of its services as industry conditions grow more uncertain. As connectivity among financial institutions becomes more critical, Envestnet will likely see even more customers come through its doors.

    Intel’s acquisition of Movidius caused serious headachesfor Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA), which sells image processing SoCs for action cameras, dash cams, security cameras, and drones. Movidius’ Myriad 2 VPUs bundled together image processing, computer vision, and machine learning capabilities, which left Ambarella’s SoCs behind a crucical tech curve.

    It seems that anything these days with the words “autonomous driving” attached to it carries some level of controversy. Video chipmaker Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) is no exception. But the thing is, the company isn’t really in that industry — at least not yet. Shares were hammered after the company reported on its first quarter, which ended April 30, because of further declines in its action camera (read GoPro) and drones business. So developing new chips for the future of transportation can’t come soon enough for Ambarella.

Ford (NYSE:F) is known for its attractive valuation, it currently trades at around 7 times its 2017 projected earnings and has an attractive dividend yield of 5.36 percent. It also has a very low price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) compared to most other companies on the S&P 500. The stock trades at around $11 during the time I am writing this. However, after digging a little deeper, I have found that the future looks bearish for Ford.

The automobile industry is known to be a very cyclical industry and I, along with many other people, believe that the cycle has peaked after years of high demand. We are witnessing a downtrend in automobile demand. In March, US auto sales fell 1.6 percent; 1.56 million cars and trucks were sold in March, falling below the projected sales of 1.62 million cars and trucks. Sales are down 1.6 percent compared to the same month last year. Ford only sold 236,250 cars; this is a 7 percent decrease in sales compared to the prior month.

    Tuesday was a down day for stocks, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling early to triple-digit losses and other major benchmarks declining by a similar percentage. The yield on the 10-year Treasury jumped well above the 3% mark, leading to speculation that a sustained upward move for interest rates could start to sap away some of the strength of the nearly decadelong bull market in stocks. Adding to the downward pressure was badly received news from several prominent individual companies. Switch (NYSE:SWCH), Vipshop Holdings (NYSE:VIPS), and Agilent Technologies (NYSE:A) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Russ Kaplan is a money manager and newsletter advisor who focuses on buying value-oriented stocks with a multi-year investment horizon; here’s his top idea for conservative investors over the coming year.

One of the most under appreciated stocks on Wall Street is Apple (APPL). The stock is among the bluest of blue chips.

Apple has a financial rating of A++. On every measure we see — such as price/earning ratio — Apple is undervalued.

With the death of its founder, investors were skeptical about new leadership, but Tim Cook has done an excellent job. He owns over one million shares of the stock.

Apple is constantly developing new products such as the Apple watch and this is not done as a short-term item being rushed onto the market.

Rather, the company takes a long-term perspective and views its product introductions as something that will constantly be improved over the years.

Best Performing Stocks For 2018

On Friday we talked about the building momentum in commodities. I said, "with Amazon missing on earnings yesterday, and FAANG stocks running up around 40%, on average, for the year, I suspect Amazon’s earnings miss will be the cue for profit taking, and a rotation will take place from the high flying tech leaders, to the beaten down commodities stocks.

Indeed, today the FAANG stocks were down across the board, led by Amazon (down 2.9% and falling back below $1,000), Facebook (down 1.5%), Netflix (down 1.3%), Google (down 1.2%) and Apple (down 0.5%). So the FAANG stocks were down 1.5% on average for the day–dramatically underperforming broader stocks, which were mostly up on the day.

Meanwhile, commodities prices continued to run. Iron ore started the day up 8% in China. Copper ended up again, to another new two-year high. Oil continued the run following last week’s OPEC meeting, closing above $50 today. And the CRB index (broad commodities) finished with a fifth consecutive higher daily close and the highest close since May.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

On Tuesday, ourUnder the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting small cap clinical-stage biopharmaceutical stock Axsome Therapeutics (NASDAQ: AXSM):

The downtrend for Axsome has been pretty well established for some time. We’re pulling the trigger today mainly because the horizontal floor at $6.03 (blue) has snapped, and there’s no real floor worth worrying about below that level. Underscoring the bearish thesis is the fact — and this is tough to see without the on-balance volume line — the selling volume started to flow in earnest even before the technical break below $6.03.

The sellers had already tipped their hand, so to speak, and there are likely to be a lot more of them out there now that the last leg of hope has been kicked out from underneath them.
