Best Dividend Stocks To Buy For 2021

After huge industry sales figures in 2016 and 2017, most of those who follow the auto industry have anticipated that vehicle sales would start to fall back from cyclical highs this year and for the foreseeable future. That’s potentially bad news for Ford Motor (NYSE:F) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU), as both members of the Big Three automakers have had to deal with challenges that have pressured their stock prices.

Shares are now so cheap, that for many investors, automaker stocks look like unprecedented bargains. But others who’ve seen these cycles play out before note that declines in future earnings can make current valuations extremely misleading. With tariff issues also affecting the companies’ manufacturing, those who are interested in Ford and Fiat Chrysler want to know whether one has a marked advantage over the other. Below, you’ll see how the two compare, using some common metrics that can help you decide which is the better buy.

    2/15/2019 – Whiting Petroleum was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “Whiting Petroleum's core operations are focused in North Dakota's Williston Basin, providing this E&P with an enviable acreage of top-tier assets and a multi-year drilling inventory. The company’s continually improving drilling efficiency has driven down cash costs while leading to attractive cash flow generation.

As such, the stock is expected to perform in line with the broader market.” 2/12/2019 – Whiting Petroleum is now covered by analysts at KeyCorp.

Best Small Cap Stocks To Own Right Now

The Russell 2000 hasn’t seen this kind of winning streak since 2013.

After eight straight weeks of gains, history suggests small caps are flashing a big buy signal to all stocks.

“We took a look at future returns after these long weekly win streaks on the Russell 2000, sure enough small caps continued to do well. What’s more interesting, though, is the S&P 500 actually does a little bit better,” Ryan Detrick, senior market strategist at LPL Financial, told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Tuesday.

The past nine times the Russell 2000 had a winning streak that stretched over at least eight consecutive weeks, the S&P 500 posted an average 6.4 percent gain in the following six months. Over those same periods, the Russell 2000 added an average 4.3 percent.“Small-cap leadership is a good thing,” he added. “It could be carving the way potentially for this bull market to continue as the S&P’s second half of the year also does well.”

Investors (rightly) think of Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ)as a phone company. When subscriber numbers are strong — like they werein the first quarter of 2018 — the stock pops.

It makes sense, roughly 90% of the company’s top line comes from its wireless and wireline businesses.

While that big chunk of the company will remain the focus for some time, Verizon has other irons in the fire that could really pay off long term.

It’s all about the internet

The next generation of wireless network, 5G, is being geared up for launch this year from multiple wireless carriers. 5G will be faster and have lower latency than previous networks, and it could eventually go toe-to-toe with traditional internet service providers for home and business.

Verizon just completed its 11 city trial run of its new network and is preparing for the next phase. “We are excited about the initial commercial launch of our 5G residential broadband offering later this year as the first slice of a multi-use asset,” said CFO Matthew Ellis. “We are on the forefront of innovation that will drive the full suite of services and use cases that will be delivered by 5G technologies.”

A lot of people have been betting on a decline in the price of Bitcoin heading toward the April 17 tax deadline. The expectation is that many people will need to sell their Bitcoin in order to raise cash to meet tax obligations. Here’s our latest daily insight on why the Bitcoin bear market may end very soon.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

It’s important for investors to know how to invest in penny stocks safely. That’s because they’re often volatile and can sometimes be fraudulent, despite offering triple-digit returns in a matter of weeks. We’ll show you our top two strategies for finding good penny stocks to buy, plus our small-cap stock pick primed for double-digit growth this year…

Video3 Strategies for Investing in Penny Stocks

If you’re looking for proof of just how explosively profitable penny stocks are, Delcath Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH) is a perfect piece of evidence. This company saw its stock price surge from $0.02 on June 1 to $0.19 on June 26. That marked a stunning 850% gain, which happened after the company announced phase 2 trial data for its cancer drug Melphalan would be released.

But these triple-digit returns aren’t always justified by the company’s profits or business potential. For instance, Chinese energy company Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: CETC) saw shares jump 144% from $1.90 to $4.63 during just the first five sessions of April.

Evidence of this connection was first revealed on Aug. 14 in a report by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS).

The IISS report claimed that Pyongyang’s recent success with intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) was facilitated by black market purchases of foreign rocket engines and intellectual property.

And evidence to further support the IISS’ claim surfaced just this week…

Lowering drug prices may be nearly as complicated as bringing peace to the Middle East. But President Donald Trump plans to tackle the thorny health care issue in a long-awaited speech on Friday.

The president plans to provide a blueprint that lays out the framework of how he will reduce drug costs, according to senior administration officials. Unlike his fiscal 2019 budget proposal, the majority of the actions he’ll discuss Friday don’t need Congress’ approval, they said.

Trump has long promised to bring down the cost of drugs, but he has yet to weigh in on the issue at length.

During Trump’s tenure, administration officials have provided some insights into how they intend to address the cost of prescription medicines. The White House has made recommendations in the president’s budget request and in a report issued by the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar previewed some of the administration’s priorities in a speech before the American Hospital Association on Wednesday, saying the agency is focused on several problems in the drug industry.

Hot Biotech Stocks For 2019

On Wednesday, our Elite Opportunity Pro newsletter suggested small cap biopharmaceutical stock Agios Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: AGIO) as a long/bullish idea:

The Company believes dysregulation of normal cellular metabolism plays a crucial role in many genetic diseases. A first mover in using cellular metabolism, Agios exploits this area of biological research with disruptive potential, as a platform for developing potentially transformative medicines. The Company intends to apply its deep understanding of metabolism, coupled with its ability to create medicines that can inhibit or activate metabolic enzymes, to fundamentally change the way cancer and rare genetic disorders are treated.

Agios is no one trick development stage biotech. With over $467M in cash on the books, no debt and a market cap of $2.2B, the Company is well positioned to grow their top and bottom line over the next several years, assuming any of their many development stage therapies receive FDA approval.
