Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2019

Lam Research (LRCX) is one of the backbones of the silicon microprocessor industry – today, pretty much every advanced chip is built with Lam technology – but the company remains undervalued and under followed. The company creates wafer fabrication equipment and offers services that allow chip makers (like Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), Toshibia (OTCPK:TOSBF), Elphia, Hynix and more) to build smaller, faster, and better performing electronic devices. It is one of the top three semiconductor equipment manufacturing companies, with Applied Materials (AMAT) and ASML, but for a company with a revenue of $9.6 Billion last year, and a market cap of over $30 Billion, they are vastly undervalued.

Thesis

Investors are presented with a great opportunity to initiate a position in Lam Research, which is made even more appetizing due to the slump in share price after Q3 earnings. Imagine going into a store where everything is 30% off. You find a jacket that’s amazing – high quality and well made – and see that on top of the store wide 30% discount, the Jacket has another 10% off. That’s a great deal, and it’s exactly what Lam Research is. In addition to its upside potential, the company has great future growth prospects due to steadily increasing demand of its products, and could also be a future dividend player. WCR feels that LRCX has an upside potential of up to 40%, and has a 12 month price target of $260.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2019: International Speedway Corporation(ISCA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street moved lower on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average suffering a 201-point decline. Stocks took their cues from the bond market, where bond prices dropped sharply in response to extremely strong U.S. economic data. For years, the economic expansion has given bond investors a Goldilocks scenario, in which growth was solid but not so sharp as to cause negative side effects, such as inflation. Now, stronger signals could force the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates more aggressively than previously thought, and that could hurt the markets. Several individual companies also suffered from bad news that sent their shares lower. Mallinckrodt (NYSE:MNK), International Speedway (NASDAQ:ISCA), and LGI Homes (NASDAQ:LGIH) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Stocks to Watch Today: STZ, AMZN, BKS
    Constellation Brands Inc. (NYSE: STZ) leads today’s list of companies reporting earnings. The spirits giant reported earnings per share of $2.87 on top of $2.30 billion in revenue. Those figures topped consensus expectations of $2.58 on top of $2.25 billion. The company also announced it had increased its 2019 fiscal guidance. Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is generating some negative press this morning. The e-commerce giant had announced an hourly wage hike for its workers on Tuesday. However, as we dig deeper into the announcement, it turns out that the firm has eliminated monthly bonuses and stock awards from its hourly employees. In addition, Bloomberg is reporting that Chinese equipment manufacturer Super Micro may have allowed microchips that could be used for spying into equipment run in Amazon Web Services. Amazon has denied the report. In deal news, Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS) shares popped 18% on news that the firm is exploring a potential sale. According to reports, the firm has received interest from several parties, including the firm’s chair, Leonard Riggio, who developed Barnes & Noble’s modern franchise in 1971. Shares of BKS stock had been off about 18% since January as the firm continues to struggle against Amazon and faces a difficult retail environment. Look for other earnings reports from Costco Wholesale Corp. (NASDAQ: COST), International Speedway Corp. (NASDAQ: ISCA), and Sky Solar Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: SKYS)

    Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE: BWP) — While not directly tied to the price of oil due to its focus on the natural gas sector, Boardwalk does fall into the energy column. While the company’s revenue and EPS growth is lackluster and the yield (3.27%) is way below that of a typical energy MLP, the idea behind owning Boardwalk units is the deep discount of the actual assets of the company. The stock trades at just 50 cents on the dollar to the stated book value of the company and, as the company’s wheelhouse is storage and movement of natural gas and natural gas liquids (a now booming U.S. export business), real value will be unlocked. It’s just a matter of time.

    Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE: BWP) — While not directly tied to the price of oil due to its focus on the natural gas sector, Boardwalk does fall into the energy column. While the company’s revenue and EPS growth is lackluster and the yield (3.27%) is way below that of a typical energy MLP, the idea behind owning Boardwalk units is the deep discount of the actual assets of the company. The stock trades at just 50 cents on the dollar to the stated book value of the company and, as the company’s wheelhouse is storage and movement of natural gas and natural gas liquids (a now booming U.S. export business), real value will be unlocked. It’s just a matter of time.

    Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE: BWP) — While not directly tied to the price of oil due to its focus on the natural gas sector, Boardwalk does fall into the energy column. While the company’s revenue and EPS growth is lackluster and the yield (3.27%) is way below that of a typical energy MLP, the idea behind owning Boardwalk units is the deep discount of the actual assets of the company. The stock trades at just 50 cents on the dollar to the stated book value of the company and, as the company’s wheelhouse is storage and movement of natural gas and natural gas liquids (a now booming U.S. export business), real value will be unlocked.

    On the downside, Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ:BPMC)also is developing a RET targeting drug called BLU-667. The company doesn’t seem to be presenting additional data at ASCO, likely because it just released data last month at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting.

Millennials took over as the largest generational group in the United States workforce in 2015, and by 2020 they will make up over half of the total workforce. If you do not already have a millennial manager, you could be getting one soon. Most business articles written about Millennials have been about how to manage them. Now it is time to shift the focus to the development of the effective management techniques needed to transition Millennials into those important leadership roles. Organizational leaders need to prepare in order to better position millennial managers for success.  After all, these young professionals must be ready to move up the corporate ladder as baby boomers continue to retire by the thousands each day.

A 2015 Harvard Business Review survey and article highlighted a number of obstacles that young millennial managers will have to overcome. They are facing a challenge other generations have rarely encountered: managing employees who are older than they are.  Older employees often struggle with taking marching orders from younger individuals because they view the younger boss as lacking ‘real world experience.’ This perceived lack of ‘real world experience’ can be counterbalanced by effective organizational structures and support programs. The challenge is to provide the young manager with the necessary credibility and the proper authority to manage and to lead.  First of all, young leaders were not viewed as being as fully trusted as an older leader. Older team members sometimes feel uncomfortable with the ideas and opinions of a younger boss.  The lack of trust perceived by the older employee presents a roadblock to the development of the kind of interpersonal relationship needed for a millennial to be an effective leader.  A second challenge that emerged was credibility in the scope of the knowledge and experience of a millennial manager. Even though the manager might have more current training and more technical expertise, there was still a perceived credibility gap because of their lack of experience. Furthermore, the younger managers were less likely to be perceived as a role model for fellow employees, or as a top level representative of the organization to outside parties.

Are Boardwalk Pipeline Partners' Days as a Public Company Numbered?

Investors have been waiting for years for Boardwalk Pipeline Partners (NYSE:BWP) to fix the issues of debt and profitability that forced management to cut its payout. The path to repair these issues has been agonizingly slow, however, as Boardwalk posted another quarter of results that don’t suggest a return to a higher payout anytime soon.

Not that it will matter, though, because it’s looking more and more like Boardwalk won’t be a publicly traded entity much longer. Let’s take a look at Boardwalk’s most recent earnings report and see why management is considering a significant change in ownership.

By the numbers

Metric Q1 2018 Q4 2017 Q1 2017
Revenue $335.4 million $337.5 million $367.0 million
EBITDA $224.4 million $205.5 million $246.2 million
EPS $0.38 $0.33 $0.47
Distributable cash flow $159.9 million $110.6 million $176.1 million

Data source: Boardwalk Pipeline Partners earnings. EPS= earnings per share.

The vast majority of Boardwalk’s business involves moving natural gas to power plants, which of course is a highly seasonal business and means that comparing Boardwalk’s results to the prior quarter doesn’t really tell us much. The only way to gauge its results is to look at the prior year’s numbers. In this case, Boardwalk’s results were down across the board because of an asset sale in the second quarter of 2017 and a renegotiated transportation contract in the third quarter that lowered firm volume commitments for this year and next in exchange for an extension all the way out to 2030.

The encouraging note in these recent results is that the company put one of its largest capital projects into service: The Coastal Bend Header gas pipeline. This first phase will deliver 0.7 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day to the Freeport LNG export facility. The second phase, set to be complete in November, will deliver an additional 0.7 bcf and will represent a significant uptick in revenue for the company.

Getting gobbled up by its parent company?

So there has been a lot of policy changes in recent months that have a direct effect on master limited partnerships. One of them was the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) recent ruling to change the way master limited partnerships can charge for services under what are known as cost-of-service contracts. The other was the recent changes to corporate tax rates, which makes the tax advantages of being an MLP less beneficial.

Pipelines above a field.

While CEO Stanley Horton mentioned on the company’s conference call that the recent FERC ruling won’t have a material impact on the company’s earnings now. That decision and other changes have Boardwalk reconsidering its corporate structure.

[D]espite our view regarding the potential near-term impact on our revenues for the FERC’s recent actions, the effect of the FERC’s actions on the maximum applicable rates we may be able to charge in the future could result in our general partner being able to exercise its call right under the terms of our partnership agreement.

It’s not just that its general partner Loews Corporation (NYSE:L) has the ability to do so, It appears that both Boardwalk and Loews are seriously considering this option. Here’s Horton again on the call:

Now this right has existed and has been disclosed in our SEC filings since our IPO and is further discussed in our 10-Q and in an amended form 13D that would be filed by Loews [ph] today. Now any decision to exercise the right is a Loews decision, not a Boardwalk decision. Loews has informed us that it is analyzing the FERC’s recent actions and seriously considering its purchase right under the partnership agreement.

Boardwalk isn’t the only one that is reevaluating whether this is the best path forward for midstream companies. Even some of the most prominent pipeline companies in the business have said the recent changes make the MLP structure less desirable than they were. So don’t be surprised if we see Boardwalk and others make this move.

BWP Chart

Data source: BWP data by YCharts.

A good time to bow out

Back when Boardwalk cut its distribution in 2014, the plan was to shore up the balance sheet and free up distributable cash flow to grow the business. Four years later, its debt metrics have improved significantly, but EBTIDA is only 3% higher on a trailing 12-month basis. With results like this, it’s hard to envision the company significantly increasing its distribution any time soon even as these new LNG supply pipelines go into service.

Considering how much recent regulatory changes have deteriorated the advantages of the MLP structure and how cheap Boardwalk’s stock is right now — it trades at an enterprise value to EBITDA ratio of 7.8, which is incredibly low for midstream MLPs — it would be a perfect time for Loews to swoop in and buy up all the outstanding shares of Boardwalk. For investors that have watched its stock drop 62% since that fateful distribution cut, I don’t think they will be too upset if Loews decides to buy them out.

Best Performing Stocks For 2018

Shares of industrial giant General Electric (NYSE:GE) have plunged over the past year due to deteriorating performance in the company’s power business — historically its largest segment by revenue — and investor fears about hidden liabilities in the GE Capital financing business. GE slashed its dividend by 50% last fall, but some analysts have warned that a cash crunch could force it to abandon the dividend entirely.

The reality isn’t quite so bleak. Last Friday, General Electric silenced many of its critics with solid first-quarter results. While the company still faces earnings pressure from the power and GE Capital segments, the valuable aviation and healthcare segments are performing very well. Furthermore, GE’s turnaround plan appears to be on track.

Aviation continues to support profitability

General Electric reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.16 for the first quarter, comfortably beating the average analyst estimate of $0.11. Based on current accounting standards, EPS was $0.14 in the year-ago period, so GE’s Q1 result represented a year-over-year improvement.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) — Which stocks should I buy? It’s the eternal question that most investors spend most of their time wondering. But is it the wrong question?

Must Read: Warren Buffett’s Top 10 Dividend Stocks

More so than any other year since 2008’s market crash, 2014 has been a year for stock pickers. That’s because, as the end of the calendar year creeps closer, one in three S&P 500 components is actually down since January. And considering the fact that the big index is up more than 10% year-to-date, those underperformers are missing the mark by a big margin. In a big way, knowing which stocks not to buy has almost been more important for your ability to book gains in 2014 than knowing which ones you should.

That’s why we’re taking a closer technical look at five “toxic stocks” to sell this week.

Just to be clear, the companies I’m talking about today aren’t exactly junk. By that, I mean they’re not next up in line at bankruptcy court. But that’s frankly irrelevant; from a technical analysis standpoint, sellers are shoving around these toxic stocks right now. For that reason, fundamental investors need to decide how long they’re willing to take the pain if they want to hold onto these firms in the weeks and months ahead. And for investors looking to buy one of these positions, it makes sense to wait for more favorable technical conditions (and a lower share price) before piling in.
