Top 5 Low Price Stocks For 2019

Whether you’re a newbie who just watched The Wolf of Wall Street or you’re a seasoned trader whose previous fliers on penny stocks have burned one too many holes in your pocket, the story is the same — stay away from penny stocks.

Penny stocks (classified by the SEC as anything trading under $5) are among the more volatile securities you’ll ever come across. There are a few reasons for that, not the least of which is that their low prices confuse many would-be investors. Remember, just because it trades for a dollar doesn’t mean that it’s a cheap stock.

Consider Lifeway Foods (NASDAQ:LWAY), which trades for a mere $3.60. Compare that to Danone (OTCMKTS:DANOY), trading at $15.46. Lifeway certainly appears cheaper, but with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 57 versus Danone’s P/E of 15, you’re actually paying a premium for LWAY stock.

That tiny price tag also makes penny stocks more susceptible to scammers and wild swings in price. All of this is not to say that buying penny stocks can’t go your way, but the odds are stacked against you.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks For 2019: BlackRock, Inc.(BLK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    I learned my lesson, so I only attend a conference if one speaker is on the schedule: BlackRock Inc. (NYSE: BLK) CEO Larry Fink.

    BlackRock is a world-class money manager and owns a lot of great stocks. But what it’s really good at, what I’m interested in, is generating fees for itself.

  • [By ]

    Why was the market so bullish? Cramer said it started with strong earnings from Blackrock (BLK) , up 1.4%, Delta Air Lines  (DAL) , up 2.9% and strong same-store sales from Costco (COST) which sent that stock up 2.2%.

    Near the end of January, Enphase Energy repaid in full its senior secured term loan with Tennenbaum Capital Partners, LLC (TCP), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of BlackRock (NYSE:BLK). The repayment includes a principal amount of approximately $39.5 million (plus accrued interest and fees) and the repayment will lead to the removal of liens on all of the Company’s assets.

    Gross: All right.

As I said, they’re the dominant player here. They’ve performed well over multiple market cycles, 2.2% dividend yield, buys back a ton of stock. They’re digesting the Toys R Us bankruptcy, and there are some China trade issues here, so the stock has suffered, but that makes it awfully cheap.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2018

Patriot One is a Canadian-based technology company that has developed an advanced concealed weapons detection system that delivers real-time warnings to keep potential attackers at bay and to keep the general public safe and secure. “Using radar and machine-learning algorithms that interpret the signal that comes back, every metallic object they’re carrying will resonate with a very distinct frequency and the system has been trained to register the signature of different types of weapons,” said Martin Cronin, CEO of Patriot One Technologies.

The cutting-edge technology created by Patriot One Technologies (OTCQB: PTOTF) (TSE: PAT.V) is available for use in airports, police stations and other government offices. It’s also available for use in stadiums, concert halls, night clubs and shopping malls. Anywhere that large numbers of people gather has the potential for installation of Patriot One’s system. Fortunately for any public or private entity that puts this concealed weapons detection system to work, there are no privacy law concerns “No image is retained. There are no privacy concerns whatsoever with respect to it. There’s no data that’s being retained, it’s simply detecting items on an individual,” said John Gillies, retired assistant director of CSIS, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino has implemented a trial of Patriot One’s revolutionary concealed weapons detection technology in order to evaluate integration capabilities with existing in-house security systems.
Having long been an iconic landmark, Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is comprised of nearly 3,000 hotel rooms, including 305 suites located on 64 acres with a 74,000-square foot casino and 200,000 square foot convention center.

Today, Westgate Resorts encompasses 28 resorts with more than 13,500 villas across the United States.
Westgate’s Chief Operating Officer Mark Waltrip said, “With this partnership, we are pleased to be moving ahead and look forward to deploying the product on-site and to integrating it with our existing security infrastructure. Hopefully this is the first of many deployments across our locations around the United States.”

    Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) CEO Frank Del Rio tells TheStreet that 2018 bookings and pricing are very strong. Further, 2019 bookings and pricing are looking quite robust as well. 

  • [By ]

    That type of reaction is a bearish signal. What’s not bearish: the CEOs of Carnival Corp. (CCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) telling TheStreet they see no signs of recession anywhere in their business, and don’t understand why their stocks are being penalized.

  • [By ]

    Meanwhile, TheStreet will drop a podcast with Carnival Corp. (CCL) CEO Arnold Donald this weekend. Donald and I talked Wednesday afternoon about his rise to the top gig at Carnival and overall cruise line industry trends. Similar to what I learned from talking to Norwegisn Cruise Line (NCLH) CEO Frank Del Rio last week, I came away thinking Carnival is also undervalued here (stock is down 5% this year). While there are a good number of new ships hitting waters in 2019 and beyond, the consumer demand is such that more ships are warranted. Risks: surging oil prices (it takes a lot of fuel to run a cruise ship) and a recession (meaning somewhat empty new ships).

Paramount Gold (NYSEMKT:PZG) owns a 100% interest in the Grassy Mountain Gold Project in eastern Oregon and a 100% interest in the Sleeper Gold Project in northern Nevada.

Hot Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019: Cameco Corporation(CCJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Cameco Corporation (NYSE:CCJ), the largest publicly traded uranium miner, has been struggling along with the moribund price of the nuclear fuel it mines. The stock is down over 70% since commodity markets started to tumble in 2011. The early 2016 commodity upturn, meanwhile, has seemingly left uranium behind. Investors have ample reason to worry, but for more intrepid stock buyers, Cameco’s low stock price could be a long-term opportunity.

    Cameco (NYSE: CCJ) and Abtech (OTCMKTS:ABHD) are both basic materials companies, but which is the better investment? We will compare the two companies based on the strength of their analyst recommendations, risk, profitability, dividends, valuation, institutional ownership and earnings.

    Here are just a few of the companies we’ve discussed:

    Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA): China is Team Musk’s second-largest market, with sales of more than $2 billion there in 2017 alone. Shorting a company like Tesla right now might prove to be full of profit potential. In fact, premium subscribers were recommended just that at a time when the stock was moving down in the past, and they had the opportunity to close out on two legs of the same trade for a total of 121.41% gains. Just click here for more information about this strategy. BlackRock Inc. (NYSE: BLK): CEO Larry Fink laid out why China is a critical priority in his company’s 2017 annual report, citing the same three primary “Unstoppable Trend” subsets we prioritize when it comes to the Red Dragon as being the driver… demographics, economic, and regulatory shifts. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA): The e-commerce giant is the only company capable of giving Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) a true run for its money and – gasp – potentially winning the fight. It’s working on a plan to list shares in mainland China, not Hong Kong, as many people believe and as has been widely reported. This could immediately unlock a huge pool of captive money that could double shares when Chinese investors have access through a secondary listing.

    Tactically, though, the situation is very different.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

    The price of Bitcoin surged more than 17% to top $8,000 in a rapid move that surprised many investors this morning.

    Restaurant Stocks to Buy, No. 1: Chuy’s Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: CHUY)

    Chuy’s Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: CHUY) is a Texas-based chain of casual Tex-Mex restaurants.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    As an investor, it’s always hard when a company you love doesn’t see things go its way. I ate at Tex-Mex chain Chuy’s Holdings (NASDAQ:CHUY) original Austin locations hundreds of times during my time in Texas’ capital city, and eating at not one but two of its Houston-area restaurants on a recent trip to my hometown was a highlight of my time there. Yet despite my own contributions toward boosting Chuy’s sales performance, the company’s broader fortunes have remained mixed, and a brutally competitive restaurant industry has made it hard for Chuy’s to keep itself moving forward despite its ambitious expansion efforts.
