Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (IIPR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Lastly, this marijuana skeptic likes Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR), a U.S.-based real estate investment trust (REIT).

    The beauty of the REIT model is that it tends to produce predictable cash flow at roughly fixed costs. A REIT will acquire land and buildings within a specific industry of focus, then look to lease these assets out for a long period of time. Later, these assets can be disposed of for a profit, should the REIT choose.

    Marijuana stocks have become exceedingly popular, but not everyone feels comfortable investing directly in the companies that produce and grow cannabis. Instead, some prefer to look at the companies that are in the business of helping marijuana producers maximize their growth business. Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG) provides fertilizers and equipment that individual and commercial operations can use to boost cannabis production, while Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) is a real estate investment trust designed to help cannabis companies find the space they need while meeting all the regulatory requirements surrounding marijuana production facilities.

And one U.S.-based company that isn’t a biotech landed in the top five as well — Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR).

    The stock market jumped on Friday, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average to gains of over 400 points as investors seemed pleased with news out of Washington. The federal government averted another potential shutdown, and building positive momentum made some market participants fearful that they could miss out if stock indexes keep heading upward toward record levels. Some positive news on the earnings front for certain high-profile stocks also improved sentiment. Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), Talend (NASDAQ:TLND), and Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

Best Dividend Stocks To Buy For 2019

Are you ready to find the holy grail of dividend investing? The ideal dividends are stocks in strong companies which pay out a high dividend yield. Savvy investors can reinvest payments and, over time, create a veritable treasure trove of double-digit annual gains.

Furthermore dividend stocks from financially healthy companies offer a savvy way to hedge risk against more volatile stocks. “While equity markets have been volatile recently, dividend payments are reflective of corporate health and economic conditions and we expect them to be much more stable” Ben Lofthouse, a director at Janus Henderson, told CNBC recently.

To pinpoint these elusive stocks, I set the TipRanks’ stock screener to filter for stocks with a “positive, high or very high” dividend yield and a “strong buy” analyst consensus rating. This is based on only ratings from the last three months. The result: we can be confident that these are premium stock picks with the biggest Street support right now. Plus looking at the average analyst price target is a handy indicator of the dividends’ upside potential in terms of share price.

    Many major utilities are now ramping up investments in cost-saving, margin-boosting energy efficiency programs. In fact, there’s a strong correlation between the most ambitious renewable energy investment strategies and energy efficiency programs. Some utilities have a lot of catching up to do.  

    Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) has saved 13,000 GWh of electricity consumption across its network over the years, including 9,000 GWh since 2005. The company has an ambitious plan to retire coal-fired power plants and build new wind and solar power capacity, which, when coupled with energy efficiency, could allow it to generate 45% of its electricity from renewables in 2027. Additionally, fuel-related expenses would drop from 47% of capital investments in 2010 to just 28% in 2027. That would free up more cash flow for dividends or growth projects — or both. PG&E (NYSE:PCG) recently filed a plan to retire an aging fossil fuel power plant with distributed solar and energy efficiency programs, as discussed on a recent quarterly conference call with investors. The utility also offers some of the most ambitious customer rebates in the country, with up to $5,500 per household. Southern Company (NYSE:SO) has saved 2,700 GWh of electricity consumption across its network since 2000. By 2020, it will have invested $1 billion total in energy efficiency programs, although that lags well behind more ambitious peers. Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) was ranked second to last among all utilities in the country in energy efficiency by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy. That leaves plenty of room for improvement. A recent report suggests it’s possible to reduce new home energy consumption in Virginia (the company’s home state) by 60%, saving the utility billions in capital investments in the next decade by avoiding the need to build new facilities. Those efforts could also save customers $1.7 billion, but the utility’s most recent plan does not prioritize energy efficien

    Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) started 2018 well, delivering results that came in at the high end of its forecast thanks to much colder weather than last winter. Because of that, the utility believes its full-year results will come in above the midpoint of its guidance range. The company also affirmed its dividend growth forecast even though two factors helping to power it — the SCANA (NYSE:SCG) merger and its ability to grow its master limited partnership Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM) — have become increasingly uncertain.

    In fact, the real possibility of users substituting cannabis for alcohol is one reason why investment firm Cowen Group (NASDAQ:COWN), which is arguably more bullish than any other investment firm on the legal marijuana industry, increased its long-term outlook on marijuana sales by 50%, or $25 billion, to $75 billion. It’s worth pointing out that Cowen’s original estimate calling for $50 billion in annual sales only ran until 2026, and the new estimate extends until 2030. Still, that’s a lofty target for an industry that did “only” $9.7 billion in legal sales in 2017, according to ArcView Market Research.

Best Biotech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Last week, shares of Axovant (NYSE:AXON) rose almost 50% on the news that Dr. David Hung, former President and CEO of Medivation, was appointed as Axovant’s new CEO. Dr. Hung rose to prominence not only for founding Medivation, but also for overseeing the company through to its $14 billion acquisition by Pfizer last year. This move likely has investors thinking Axovant may be about to meet a similar fate.

Unfortunately, however, Axovant is no Medivation. Let’s call a spade a spade here — a fresh coat of paint won’t make this outhouse a mansion.

The “hottest” IPO of 2015

Axovant made headlines back in June of 2015 when its stock jumped 99% on its IPO day into what was then called the largest biotech IPO of all time, at a nearly $3 billion valuation. This move had multiple sources announcing biotech may be in “bubble territory” — and we all know what happened soon after.

    The stock market didn’t see much volatility on Friday, with most major benchmarks finishing the session very close to where they had started. Without much in the way of market-moving news on the national or global front, most investors instead paid attention to the cross-currents involved with monthly options expirations. Some other parts of the financial markets were more interesting, with bond yields easing a bit lower after their big upward push earlier in the week and oil prices taking a break from their recent surge. Yet some individual companies suffered from bad news that sent their shares lower. Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), GameStop (NYSE:GME), and Opko Health (NASDAQ:OPK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

What happened

Shares of auction house Sotheby’s (NYSE:BID) jumped 13.6% in February, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after a fourth-quarter earnings report wowed investors. And given the company’s momentum, 2017 could be a great year for the company.

So what

Revenue fell 8% in the fourth quarter, to $308.7 million, but Sotheby’s swung from a loss a year ago to a profit of $65.5 million, or $1.20 per share. Management’s focus on lowering costs is helping offset a decline in the art market, and it could give the stock a lot of leverage in the future if the art market picks up.

There are a couple of high-profile auctions coming up in the next few weeks, and we’ll see if that will lead to some top-line growth going forward at Sotheby’s. If the top line improves, we can expect strong improvement on the bottom line given the lower cost base.
