Top 10 Performing Stocks To Own For 2019

It doesn’t take much for bottom fishers to get excited about General Electric (GE). An underperforming cyclical business and rock bottom share prices are definitely an alluring combination for those looking to capitalize on the stock’s “cheapness.”

A while back I stated that General Electric’s stock could get interesting at $18. This was when the stock traded at $30. Since then, shares have declined well past the $18 level to as low as $13 before coming back recently on the back of the restructuring story getting more traction. Despite this general optimism towards the company’s ongoing restructuring efforts, I believe that the company is now uninvestable.

Restructuring Hoopla

General Electric is definitely making a lot of noise. The company is aiming for $20 billion of asset sales, and the management is considering “all options.” A part of the management’s grand plan was unveiled this week with the announcement of a merger between the company’s transportation unit and Wabtec (WAB). Based on the stock’s positive movement on Monday, it is clear that investors are buying the narrative that the management is righting the ship.

Hot Casino Stocks To Invest In 2019

Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) was a great stock to own last year, rallying 30% on surging gaming revenues in Macau. However, 2018 was a much uglier year for the casino giant, which saw its stock drop 5% amid slowing growth in Macau and escalating trade tensions between the US and China.

I bought some shares of Las Vegas Sands last year, but I recently sold my entire position. I still think Sands has a good business model, but the risks now outweigh the rewards for six simple reasons.

Image source: Las Vegas Sands.

1. A slowdown in Macau

Sands generated 64% of its revenue and 59% of its hold-normalized adjusted EBITDA from its Macau properties last quarter. Unfortunately, the GGR (gross gaming revenue) numbers in Macau haven’t been impressive over the past three months.

Hot Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

What happened

Shares of Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) gained 11.9% over the course of January, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. Why were investors piling into this top biotech stock last month?

Gilead’s shares perked up in response to the company’s rather upbeat presentation at this year’s J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, where interim CEO Gregg Alton suggested that the biotech might be able to return to growth in 2019.  

Image source: Getty Images.

So what

Before last month’s double-digit gains, Gilead’s stock had been stuck in a long-term downtrend, thanks to the company’s plummeting hepatitis C sales. However, the biotech seemed to be nearing an inflection point toward the tail end of 2018 because of a bevy of factors — including exceptionally strong sales for new HIV medicine Biktarvy, improving sales for anti-cancer cell therapy Yescarta, and a stabilizing hepatitis C drug market. And this overtly positive J.P. Morgan conference presentation appeared to indicate that Gilead’s comeback story was indeed taking shape.

By the way, they also generate plenty of cash and provide dividends, which are indicators of a strong and sustainable business.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

Go back a year, and offshore drillers like Noble (NE), Rowan (RDC), Transocean (RIG) and Atwood Oceanics (ATW) had been all but written off–until they weren’t anymore. Since then, investors have been rewarded for picking winners in the group from the losers, as Atwood Oceanics has more than doubled, Transocean has gained 34%, and Rowan has risen 42%, while Noble and Diamond Offshore Drilling (DO) have dropped 13%.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

But are the days of picking stocks among offshore drillers over? Consider: Today, Jefferies analyst Eduardo Royes and team upgraded Noble to Buy and cut Rowan to Hold, clearly favoring one over the other. They explain why:

Given where we sit in the cycle, we cannot favorably recommend the group. That said, we can still see relative value (or lack thereof) in shares. We upgrade Noble to Buy as we view it as the ‘safest’ way to play offshore drilling exposure at the moment —we see modest upside to shares on a DCF and relative valuation basis. Meanwhile we downgrade Rowan to Hold as despite still generating healthy free cash flow, we see risk that medium-term earnings disappoint (we’re >30% below ’18 Street EBITDA) as the ‘turn’ in jackups and ultra-deep-water markets is likely challenged from a profitability standpoint. Outside of Rowan and Noble, we skew favorably to Hold-rated Ensco (ESV) and Transocean.

    When you think about companies set to prosper from the digitization of the economy, the metal-bashing industrial sector might not be the first place you would start looking.

In fact, IoT provides a huge opportunity for both companies to increase profitability. Let’s see how and why.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019: Dillard's, Inc.(DDS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Some reasons for my bearishness on retail stocks:

    Higher Energy Prices. Oil prices have rallied dramatically and back to 2014 levels, rising from about $35 a barrel in early 2016 to around $67 Thursday. That’s bad news for U.S. retailers, as rising oil prices historically squeeze consumer disposable incomes. That’s one reason why I’ve been consistently raising my short exposure to retail and plan to continue doing so. Shaky Same-Store Sales Growth. Recent improvements to same-store sales at Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) , Urban Outfitters (URBN) , Dillard’s (DDS) , Gap Inc. (GPS) and Macy’s (M) come against downgraded expectations, and might not be sustainable anyway. No Deal for Nordstrom (JWN) . The Nordstrom family has apparently abandoned plans to take its namesake company private. I had expressed concerns that this would happen. Higher Interest Rates. A rise in the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has recently accelerated. That’s bad news for retailers, as many variable-rate consumer debts (particularly mortgages) key off of the LIBOR. This will likely put a damper on mortgage refinancings — something that many see as an important ingredient for personal-consumption expenditures.

    Thursday was a great day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks responded favorably to news that the U.S. and China would meet again to try to negotiate their differences on the trade front. The manufacturing-heavy Dow Jones Industrial Average fared the best out of the most-followed indexes, reflecting the key role that global trade plays in those companies’ opportunities for revenue growth and profit. Broader-based measures did well but weren’t able to keep up with the Dow in percentage terms. Still, some individual companies suffered from bad news that sent their shares lower. Dillard’s (NYSE:DDS), MiMedx Group (NASDAQ:MDXG), and Global Net Lease (NYSE:GNL) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Some of the stocks that may grab investor focus today are:

    Yet that big post-earnings plunge didn’t make Macy’s the worst-performing department store stock of the past week. Shares of J.C. Penney and Sears Holdings have plunged about 30% during the same period, after those companies reported bad news last week.

Hot Casino Stocks For 2019

Wanted: $6 million in missing gaming chips. Last seen: The lavish Wynn casino in Macau.

Police are hunting for millions of dollars in casino chips after they were stolen — allegedly by one of Wynn’s own croupiers — raising security concerns in the world’s biggest gambling hub.

The heist happened Tuesday at the Wynn Macau (WYNMF), one of the marquee destinations in a Chinese territory whose gambling revenues dwarf those of Las Vegas.

Macau police told CNNMoney that a dealer at the Wynn Macau and a potential accomplice have been arrested and that they are not currently looking for other suspects. They declined to identify the two people by name.

Police didn’t say how the stolen chips were taken past casino security. But local media reported that the suspect allegedly stuffed them into a bag in a VIP room and simply carried them out.

To turn the chips into hard cash, the thieves or their associates would eventually need to bring them back into the casino.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

“Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet. We disagree.”

That defiant statement was included in the platform of Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party ahead of Thursday’s general election. In the wake of a terror attack on Saturday that killed at least seven people in London, the pledge has taken on added significance.

May has long been a stalwart for tighter control and surveillance of internet communications, citing public safety concerns.

On Sunday, as Britain assessed the damage caused by three terror attacks in just three months, May reiterated her pledge to combat terrorism by denying extremists digital tools used to communicate and plan attacks.

“We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning,” she said in a speech. “We need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online.”

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Holders of a little-known security tied to Bank of America Corp.’s stock price may be rolling in the dough.

A series of securities known as Bank of America TARP B warrants, issued in the wake of the financial crisis in 2009 with a strike price of $30.79, are set to pay out after the stock surged past that point for the first time on Friday. Shares closed at $31.19, up from $30.66 a day earlier.

#lazy-img-322529782:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

The warrants last traded at $2.86, the highest price in more than six years. They were issued at $2.55 and fell to a record low of less than 7 cents in 2016. Holders who bought around that low price have reaped returns of almost 4,000 percent on their investment.

Michigan’s state treasury is the largest holder, with more than 10 million warrants. Its first registered holding date is Sept. 30, 2014, when the price was 96 cents, and the average cost of its warrants is 79 cents. Billionaire hedge fund manager John Paulson is the next-biggest holder with almost 9 million warrants. Paulson & Co. registered its first holding in 2010, and bought the warrants at an average price of $2.53 each.

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).

In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet(Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.

Best Safest Stocks To Own For 2018

Every night in 1995, I would deposit money overnight in a different currency…   Sounds strange, I realize.   But back then, as the vice president of a global mutual fund, one of my jobs was to execute our fund's trades.   Once our U.S. trading day was done, we wanted our money to work for us overnight as well. We might put our money into French francs, German marks, or somewhere else – just for the night.   We would find the safest country that was paying the highest interest rate. And we would put our money there overnight. No kidding.   As I'll explain today, what we were doing wasn't anything special…   Big companies like German automaker Volkswagen and Japanese automaker Honda (and thousands of other companies) have cash-management departments that do basically the same thing – on a much larger scale.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

If you're like most investors, you've been led to believe that it's impossible to earn large amounts of investment income without taking big risks.   This idea – which you'll hear from many financial advisors and brokers – is simply wrong.   It is possible to earn double-digit annual yields on your money – safely – by selling options.   So why doesn't everyone use this strategy to earn consistent income streams? Below, you'll find the five common objections I've heard from readers or that I've found on the Internet… and my responses to them.   REASON NO. 1: Option-selling strategies like covered calls are too risky. You'll earn 5% in premiums, but if the stock falls 25%, you're still down big!   This objection is 100% valid. The way most people approach covered calls is risky. (If you're unfamiliar with covered calls, I encourage you to read this essay.) These folks buy risky stocks because risky, volatile stocks typically offer larger cash premiums than safe, stable blue chips. But most people end up losing on risky covered-call positions because their stocks fall in value.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors. We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.

Hot Casino Stocks To Own For 2018

Sports betting is having its moment before the Supreme Court. At stake is a 26-year-old federal law that has kept legalized sports betting out of most states.

For years, voters in the state of New Jersey have been trying to challenge a federal law called the Professional Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 and allow sports betting in its racetracks and casinos. Residents voted in 2011 and 2014 to approve sports betting there. Then-Governor Chris Christie signed a bill in 2014 attempting to make it legal under state law.

Major sports leagues like the NCAA, NFL, NBA, MLB and the NHL sued in 2012 and again in 2014 to stop it, and successfully argued that the PASPA law prohibits the Garden State from allowing sports betting.

The Department of Justice got involved and New Jersey lost decisions at every level. In 2016 a federal appeals court agreed that PASPA prohibited states from allowing sports betting.

But the Supreme Court took notice of the case and agreed to consider New Jersey’s claim that the law is unconstitutional. If it rules in favor of sports betting in Atlantic City, the decision could pave the way for wagering nationwide — an industry with huge potential. Annually, illegal sports betting amounts to roughly $150 billion.

Best Medical Stocks For 2018: Urban Outfitters Inc.(URBN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Some reasons for my bearishness on retail stocks:

    Higher Energy Prices. Oil prices have rallied dramatically and back to 2014 levels, rising from about $35 a barrel in early 2016 to around $67 Thursday. That’s bad news for U.S. retailers, as rising oil prices historically squeeze consumer disposable incomes. That’s one reason why I’ve been consistently raising my short exposure to retail and plan to continue doing so. Shaky Same-Store Sales Growth. Recent improvements to same-store sales at Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) , Urban Outfitters (URBN) , Dillard’s (DDS) , Gap Inc. (GPS) and Macy’s (M) come against downgraded expectations, and might not be sustainable anyway. No Deal for Nordstrom (JWN) . The Nordstrom family has apparently abandoned plans to take its namesake company private. I had expressed concerns that this would happen. Higher Interest Rates. A rise in the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has recently accelerated. That’s bad news for retailers, as many variable-rate consumer debts (particularly mortgages) key off of the LIBOR. This will likely put a damper on mortgage refinancings — something that many see as an important ingredient for personal-consumption expenditures.
