Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

No matter how many warnings experts issue regarding penny stocks, people invariably find their way into this speculative arena. And that issue has become even more prominent thanks to mobile trading apps like Robinhood (NASDAQ:HOOD). With the ability to wager on the full spectrum of investment vehicles right at your fingertips, Robinhood is somewhat of a mixed bag.

On the one hand, let’s at least give credit where it’s due. Prior to the novel coronavirus pandemic, financial analysts bemoaned that younger people were investing at a lower rate than prior generations at their age milestones. Suddenly, with extra time on their hands and government stimulus checks in the mail, many folks started making up for lost time. However, quite a few did so through penny stocks.

That’s not to say that this segment of the market is inherently a poor choice. Many of today’s blue chips once started off as little more than a dream, with share prices reflecting this risk profile. But with patience and truckloads of good fortune, you can make a killing with penny stocks.

    While much has been said about upscale furniture retailer RH’s (NYSE:RH) soaring stock price recently, less attention has been paid to the story behind the company’s radical overhaul.CEO Gary Friedman is making some intriguing contrarian bets for RH, pursuing experiential stores in an industry that’s downsizing its bricks-and-mortar footprint. Meanwhile, Friedman’s embracing a membership model, physical catalogs, and a premium market at a time when most everyone else is slashing costs, running promotions, and scrambling to move online.In the company’s most recent conference call, Friedman shared his thoughts on the company’s business model, the retail industry’s herd mentality, and the habits and desires of furniture shoppers.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished near its lows of the day, falling 546 points despite multiple efforts to cut its losses during the session. Even though most indexes are still up for 2018, investor confidence seems to be eroding badly after nearly a decade of bull market gains. Nevertheless, some good news from a handful of individual stocks let them buck the downtrend and move higher. Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), Green Plains (NASDAQ:GPRE), and RH (NYSE:RH) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

Fiserv (FISV) has long been a darling for their shareholders. It serves as a way to invest in the financial technology industry, as well as grant exposure to the banking sector. Over the past several years, Fiserv has consistently beat the Dow and S&P 500, while also having 32 consecutive years of double-digit adjusted EPS growth.

But, Fiserv is not a “trending” company in the financial industry. Square (SQ) and PayPal (PYPL) see all the headlines, and are where investors go when they want to invest in fintech. Below, I will outline why I believe bank IT spending will continue to grow, how Fiserv is expanding while protecting their market share and revenue, and how these factors lead to Fiserv still being undervalued despite share prices rising 25% YoY.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    To be able to cut a check each month and maintain or raise the payout requires a company to have tenable confidence in its profit-making and cash-generating capabilities. It’s easier said than done, which is why while most companies pay dividends quarterly, and only around 40 publicly listed companies pay a dividend every month. Three such companies worth watching are STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG), Realty Income (NYSE:O), and Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA).

    For those who like the convenience of monthly dividend stocks, it makes sense to take a closer look at Realty Income (NYSE:O), STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG), and Main Street Capital (NYSE:MAIN), all of which have a history of making monthly dividend payments to their shareholders.

I was so terrified of losing even those few dollars that I thought I needed to make them as safe as possible. So instead of putting them into vehicles that might actually make me some money, I put my funds into a savings account not even a high-yield savings account and once I started to save slightly more, into the safest mutual fund I could find, an intermediate bond fund.
