Best Insurance Stocks To Invest In 2019

This article originally appeared on InHerSight.com, a website where women rate the female friendliness of their employers and get matched to companies that fit their needs.

When my job interview went into overtime, I knew it was going well. So I decided to risk it and told my future boss: “I am very excited about the position. And, I need you to know that I am three months pregnant.” We looked at the calendar together, and I was due right at her most busy period of the year.

She hired me, and we made a great team. Then, four months after my son was born, I became pregnant again. (This was despite my use of birth control; Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor. Sigh.) It was tough to walk back into her office and ask her to accommodate my condition again. To her credit, her primary concerns were my health and whether I would be coming back to work.

It’s not easy telling your manager you’re pregnant. The stakes are high for both of you. You need your job, health insurance, and reasonable accommodation during and after pregnancy as you raise a child. Your company needs to figure out how to cover your projects or tasks during your maternity leave, and potentially while you are pregnant as well. And then there’s the looming question of whether you’ll come back to work at all.

Investors were generally pleased to see further signs of progress on a potential U.S. trade deal with China, and past fears about potential economic headwinds in the U.S. seemed to give way to greater optimism about the economy’s overall prospects. Yet some stocks weren’t able to join the rally. Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), Pearson (NYSE:PSO), and Dorman Products (NASDAQ:DORM) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019

The company’s overall quarterly revenues also popped 9% to $14.55 billion.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2018: Intuitive Surgical Inc.(ISRG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Stock No. 3: Let’s go back to the well. So, April last year what was the “I?” Quick quiz at home? That’s right. It was Intuitive Surgical(NASDAQ:ISRG). I own the company, and in front of my gathered fellow Heels last week, I put Intuitive Surgical on this list, as well, so I present it for you again today. It reminds us to continue to add to our winners. It was a winner a year ago. It had a three for one stock split, something that I don’t personally care about. I don’t think we should spend a lot of time talking about stock splits. I realize some people think they’re exciting or are confused by them.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    The VISE acronym stands for:

    Visa (NYSE:V) Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG) Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA)

    Each of these four companies brings clear-cut competitive advantages to the table that should allow it to handily outperform the broader market (and the FANG stocks).

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In the healthcare world, one of those has to be the impressive quarterly report from Intuitive Surgical(NASDAQ:ISRG). The company increased its revenue by 25%, and accelerated its sales of the da Vinci robotic surgical systems that made it famous. But it’s not just the expensive hardware that is allowing it to prosper — it’s that every machine needs a steady supply of the disposable instruments and accessories used during its procedures. The Fools consider the recent numbers, the outlook, and the investment thesis for Intuitive Surgical stock. But in the, say, anti-healthcare space, cigarette slingerPhilip Morris International(NYSE:PM) took a big hit as demand slackened in major foreign markets. Sales of its e-cig devices are also not growing the way management had hoped.

    But there was more upbeat news elsewhere, with No. 3 airline United Continental(NYSE:UAL) beating on earnings and freight rail titan CSX(NASDAQ:CSX) delivering record first-quarter numbers. Also on the rapid growth train: Intuitive Surgical(NASDAQ:ISRG), whose da Vinci systems are selling at an impressive rate. And speaking of sales of tech products, the guys close out the episode by explaining why it’s a win-win that Amazon.com(NASDAQ:AMZN) and Best Buy(NYSE:BBY) are joining forces to sell smart TVs.

    Stock No. 4: Let’s go to the “I” stock from our April stocks a year ago. That’s one of my favorite companies, a stock that I own, and have held for more than a decade, and that would be Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG), the maker of the da Vinci robot, the surgical robot.

    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.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

When your firm is known for its dividend safety and is primarily held by retirees and other income-seekers, the worst thing you can do is cut your dividend. Pipelines were supposed to be safe tollways that produced plenty of cash flows. So, when the oil bust hit Kinder Morgan Inc (NYSE:KMI) hard and the firm was forced to cut its dividend back in 2015, investors pretty much abandoned Kinder Morgan stock.

Kinder Morgan stock has pretty much languished since that fateful day. But it might not be languishing anymore.

Moves to right the ship at Kinder Morgan have begun to work and KMI has finally given long-suffering shareholders what they wanted all the time — a big return to dividend growth. With its latest mega-sized increase, Kinder Morgan stock is once again on top of the dividend pile. For income-seekers, this could mean that shares could finally be a big-time buy.

Needed Cut at Kinder Morgan

It’s no secret that the oil slump hurt all manner of energy stocks. And while the pipeline players were supposed to be the safest of the bunch, it turns out they were hit just as hard. Or harder, as was the case at Kinder Morgan.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2018

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    It is hard to fully wrap your hands around the potential market opportunity that Accenture will have in the years ahead but I believe that the opportunities are almost endless (dramatic, I know). For example, consider these forecasts that Forbes detailed in its “2017 Roundup Of Internet Of Things Forecast” report:

    According to Bain, “B2B IoT segments will generate more than $300B annually by 2020, including about $85B in the industrial sector”. According to PwC, “$6T will be spent on IoT solutions between 2015 and 2020”. According to Accenture, “Industrial Internet Of Things could add $14.2T to the economy by 2020”. According to Statista, “The global Internet of Things (IoT) market is projected to grow from $2.99T in 2014 to $8.9T in 2020, attaining a 19.92% Compound Annual Growth Rate (OTCPK:CAGR). Industrial manufacturing is predicted to increase from $472B in 2014 to $890B in global IoT spending. Healthcare and life sciences are projected to increase from $520B in 2014 to $1.335T in 2020, attaining a 17% CAGR”.

    The forecasts compiled by Forbes are all over the place but one thing is consistent, that is, the growth potential for IoT (and the sub-industries) is real. Connected things are expected to experience significant growth and I believe that it is hard to deny that digital will play a key role in the future growth of the global economy.

    The price of Bitcoin surged more than 17% to top $8,000 in a rapid move that surprised many investors this morning. The sudden rally appears to be the result of a short squeeze, according to CNBC contributor Brian Kelly. This means that investors who had been betting on a decline in the price of the world’s largest cryptocurrency had been forced to jump back and buy the currency again. 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 5 Bank Stocks To Invest In 2018

The fierce battle for India’s hundreds of millions of mobile users has claimed another casualty.

Aircel, the country’s fifth-largest wireless operator with around 85 million subscribers, filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday, the latest company in an increasingly cutthroat industry to throw in the towel.

The firm, owned by Malaysian communications group Maxis, said it was folding in the face of “troubled times in a highly financially stressed industry.” Those troubles include “legal and regulatory challenges, high level of unsustainable debt and increased losses,” it said in a statement.

It also blamed “intense competition following the disruptive entry of a new player.”

That disruptive new entrant is Reliance Jio, the $20 billion network founded by India’s wealthiest man, Mukesh Ambani. Soon after launching in September 2016, Jio offered its customers free 4G for the first six months. The network raced to 160 million subscribers by the end of 2017.
