Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019

On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested going long on small cap international school stock Nord Anglia Education Inc (NYSE: NORD):

We’re stepping into Nord Anglia Education on a little bit of faith that the convergence of support and resistance since early last year is building up a breakout move. We also like the way NORD is finding support at its key long-term moving average lines, which should aid any bullish thrust by acting as a launchpad. What’s really so compelling, however, is the way the bullish volume has been building. The buyers have been testing the waters, but many more are apt to be waiting in the wings.

Note that unless we get a very good jump soon, we won’t be lingering in this trade for very long. The ceiling at $24.52 is a big one we don’t want to see any hesitation at.

    The Intelligent Investor was written in 1949, but it’s still as relevant nearly 70 years later as it was back then. Benjamin Graham was right about how crazy the market can be at times. I think the experiences of two very different biotech stocks this week — Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) and Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY)– prove the point.

    Abbvie Inc. (ABBV) , for example, is generally just a pharmaceutical stock. However, the company also marketed Marinol, an FDA-approved synthetic cannabinoid meant to help nausea and vomiting in cancer and AIDS patients. INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (INSY) is a pharmaceutical company that got approval from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for a synthetic cannabis – despite having donated to anti-marijuana advocacy groups in the past.

    Insys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY) and Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CARA) fall into the third category. However, the designations of both Insys and Cara as marijuanastocks warrant an asterisk. Insys’ cannabinoid drug Syndros is based on a synthetic form of THC, the primary psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Cara has a cannabinoid receptor agonist, CR701, in preclinical development.

    Two years ago, Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and Plains GP Holdings (NYSE:PAGP) took a step to simplify their corporate structure by eliminating the costly incentive distribution rights (IDRs) that Plains All American paid to Plains GP. In exchange, Plains GP acquired a 34.8% stake in the MLP. While that deal was certainly a step in the right direction, the companies could eventually take the next logical progression by combining into one entity.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The company’s Powder River Basinassets also generated strong drilling results, with several wells topping 1,000 BOE/D. Finally, while the company did drill four wells in the Bakken, it has deferred completing them until later this year. That program is one to keep an eye on given the results Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) delivered last quarter, when it completed record-setting wells in the Three Forks and Middle Bakken formations.

    Presto, West Texas Intermediate crude rose 3% to $71.18, the highest since December 2014, boosting shares of oil companies including Occidental (OXY) , which gained 4.8%, Marathon (MRO) , up 3.8%, and Apache (APA) , which gained 2.5%. Spot gasoline also rose 2.7% to $2.17 a gallon, boding ill for the summer driving season in the U.S. and potentially eroding any gains middle-class Americans received from the Trump tax cuts.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)could outperform in that scenario.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) is another oil producer built for $50 oil. At that level, Marathon can generate enough cash to grow its U.S. oil production 25% to 30% this year, while at $60 oil, the company can produce $500 million in free cash — and even more at current prices. Marathon Oil has a range of options for that money, including buying back shares, boosting the dividend, paying off debt, or acquiring more drillable land.

    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.

What stood out was the $13 price target, which was 85% above the bank’s previous one of $7 a share.

    Canadian hard-rock lithium chemicals company Nemaska Lithium (OTCQX:NMKEF) is presently at the end of completing a $500 million capital raise which will allow the company to expand into Phase 2 production of the its facility in Quebec. The company has closed an equity deal valued at nearly $100 million from Japans SoftBank (OTCPK:SFTBY), executed a streaming agreement with Orion Mine Finance LF valued at over $150 million, and engaged with such high-quality financial groups including Clarkson Platou Securities and Pareto Securities as managers of the bond issuance.

    Volkswagen AG (VLKAY) shares were also on the back foot, falling 2.4% in Frankfurt and holding down gains for the DAX performance index after news late Thursday that former CEO Martin Winterkorn had been charged with conspiracy by the U.S. Department of Justice for his role in the firm’s diesel-gate scandal.  

  • [By ]

    The ‘Jolt’ investing tip of the day actually goes out to C-suite executives across the word: Always watch your back because someone is always vying for the top gig. Reading the various Volkswagen (VLKAY) CEO shake-up news, it’s pretty clear new CEO Herbert Diess undermined his now former boss Matthias M眉ller. He reportedly built up a base of support among board members and shareholders to appoint him as CEO, despite M眉ller’s success turning around VW after the emissions scandal.

    For example, FCA was the first to throw in the towel on “cars.” Ford is now following. Lately, brands such as Chevrolet (NYSE:GM), Toyota (NYSE:TM), Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) and Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) have professed their enduring commitment to sedans and similar “cars.” That’s probably true – at least directionally. Still, even those automakers will need to prune at least a little bit in their car/sedan portfolios over the next generational cycle, 5-10 years at the most. But the point is that they say they will not take as big of an axe to those offerings in the U.S. market, as FCA and Ford just did.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

Gazprom’s (OTCPK:OGZPY) (OTCQX:GZPFY) P/E ratio of 2.8 makes it worth a look to investors, and with a market cap of $45 billion and $180 billion in book value, which means that it owns $180 billion of it’s own immense pipeline and refining system and huge natural gas reserves. So to look at whether Gazprom is undervalued we must determine how sturdy those natural gas assets will be in the future.

To be long Gazprom, you have to be long natural gas, which requires a look at the supply and demand that makes up the pricing of natural gas around the world. Natural gas in the future in my view, will continually see demand increases throughout the world, as the continual increase in electrical vehicles will require a big switch-over from oil to natural gas, as power plants which are most economical as gas powered, are needed to power electricity and heating to homes although this trend will be a slow developing trend. And yet the supply part is not quite as bullish but still good for the long term prices for natural gas, as the advent of liquified natural gas, which is when natural gas is super cooled and shrunk down to hold more volume, has been increasing in recent years.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Like last quarter, Energy Transfer Partners delivered strong earnings and cash flow growth. Because of that, the company was able to cover its jaw-dropping 12.4%-yielding distribution by a healthy 1.15 times. That slight decline from the year-ago quarter was caused by parent companyEnergy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE)significantly reducing its support. For a better comparison, the coverage ratio would have still been a solid 1.1 in this year’s first quarter without any assistance from Energy Transfer Equity, while it would have been a worrisome 0.98 in the year-ago period without the parent company’s help. That improvement isexactly what investors wanted to see this quarter.

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.
