Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

A casual observer may assume the greatest money managers have charmed investing careers filled with success after success.

But that isn’t the case, Ritholtz Wealth Management director of research Michael Batnick explained in his new book “Big Mistakes: The Best Investors and Their Worst Investments,” released on Jun. 6.

Batnick shared key lessons and money-losing investment examples from several legendary managers such as Warren Buffett, Stanley Druckenmiller and Michael Steinhardt.

Buffett may be the most celebrated investor of them all. The investor’s track record is unparalleled. From 1965 to 2017, Berkshire Hathaway’s rising market value generated a 20.9 percent annual return compared to S&P 500’s 9.9 percent, resulting in a cumulative gain of 2,404,748 percent versus the market’s 15,508 percent return.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Wayfair Inc.(W)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Shares of Wayfair (NYSE:W) were moving higher last month after the online home goods seller turned in another strong earnings report, and announced plans to open its first physical store. According to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, the stock finished August up 24%. 

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Stock No. 4 is Wayfair (NYSE:W). Ticker symbol is W — yep, that’s right! It’s basically an internet play that somehow scored one of the precious one-letter ticker symbols that are available out there. Wayfair, just W. Wayfair is a company that competes with Amazon, but not across all categories. Really, Wayfair is about furniture and furnishings. For example, maybe you have a child that’s going to be moving into a dorm this coming fall. They might want a bed frame. You could order a bed from Wayfair for that child. The company does great e-commerce. It’s hard to compete, if you’re Amazon, with this company, because these are bigger things to ship, and Wayfair really specializes in that. 

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Sure, these stocks have soared higher in recent months as investor confidence in their businesses has grown. But in my view, lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU), Wayfair (NYSE:W), and iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT) have plenty of room for additional long-term gains.

    Earlier in 2018, the Supreme Court took the opportunity to revisit the issue in a case involving online furniture retailer Wayfair (NYSE:W). South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. involves a fact pattern similar to Quill, with the South Dakota state government seeking to enforce a state law allowing collection of sales tax on online retailers with sales of more than $100,000 or more than 200 different transactions to South Dakota online shoppers.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Canadian Solar Inc.(CSIQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Solar stocks took a beating Monday after China cut its national incentives to install solar projects. Shares of solar panel manufacturers Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:CSIQ) fell as much as 14.5%, JinkoSolar Holding Co. (NYSE:JKS) dropped as much as 17%, and Daqo New Energy Corp (NYSE:DQ) fell as much as 31.3% while inverter manufacturer Enphase Energy Inc (NASDAQ:ENPH) fell up to 13.5%. By early afternoon, most major stocks in the solar industry were down double digits.

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ) is one of the biggest solar manufacturers in the world, producing about seven out of every 100 solar panels made last year. But the company doesn’t just make solar panels; it’s also become a leading developer of solar projects with a large presence in Brazil, Mexico, China, and the U.S. 

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    The U.S. was once one of the most attractive markets for solar manufacturers, and a number of companies expanded into project development to increase their exposure here. For the past few years, Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ) has generated about one-third of its revenue in the Americas, the U.S. in particular. But recent first-quarter results show that the U.S. isn’t what it once was for the world’s biggest manufacturers. 

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ: CSIQ) saw a decrease of 3.1% in short interest during the first two weeks of May. Some 3.2% of the total float, or 1.45 million shares, were short, and days to cover remained unchanged at three. The company’s share price rose by about 2.3% over the two-week period, and shares closed Thursday at $16.72, down about 1.2% for the day, in a 52-week range of $12.24 to $19.09.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

    At first blush, you could argue that Overstock’s shares should be rising today. This morning, the company announced a shipping partnership with postage-printing specialist Stamps.com (NASDAQ:STMP), adding an innovative boost to Overstock’s e-commerce operations. A couple of hours later, Overstock’s blockchain division, Medici Ventures, saw one of its financial technology subsidiaries sign a deal with the governments of Caribbean island nations Curacao and Saint Maarten. In this contract, Overstock’s Bitt unit will help the nations develop a blockchain-based digital currency meant to facilitate payments on and between the two islands.

    Shares of Stamps.com (NASDAQ:STMP) rebounded a bit on Monday after suffering a brutal decline on Friday.

That news introduced heaps of uncertainty about its future earnings, and investors reacted by sending the stock down nearly 60% in a single day.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

The World Bank and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) have launched the first bond offering that was created and managed solely using blockchain technology. The A$100 million ($73.16 million) two-year, AAA-rated offering priced on Wednesday with a yield of 2.251%, 23 basis points above benchmark rates.

There have been other prototype bond issues using the blockchain (distributed ledger) mechanism, but those were mainly private placements. The World Bank issue, which is managed by CBA, is the first bond offering made directly to the public.

CBA executive general manager James Wall described the offering to Reuters earlier this month:

You’re collapsing a traditional bond issuance from a manual bookbuild process and allocation process, an extended settlement then a registrar and a custodian, into something that could happen online instantaneously.

The offering has been dubbed a “Bondi” bond, an acronym for Blockchain Operated New Debt Instrument and is an initial step in eliminating manual processes by moving toward a faster, cheaper automated system. Bondi is also the name of a famous Australian beach.

Best Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Puerto Rico is in the path of a powerful new hurricane, and it couldn’t come at a worse time for the broke U.S. territory.

Hurricane Irma — now a Category 5 storm with 185 mph winds — could slam into Puerto Rico by mid-Wednesday as it rips through the northeastern Caribbean, according to forecasts.

The island has been bracing for impact for the past several days and Gov. Ricardo Rossell贸 declared a state of emergency Monday.

But the threat of a natural disaster comes as the territory deals with a massive economic one.

Puerto Rico has been watching its economy decline for years because of enormous government overspending, a big dependence on debt and a costly, inefficient energy system.

Those problems finally led the commonwealth in May to file the biggest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. Puerto Rico has $74 billion in debt, and another $50 billion in pension obligations on the books.

The island claims it has money ready in case of emergency. Rossell贸 said Monday that despite its economic challenges, Puerto Rico’s budget contains an approved $15 million available as an emergency fund, according to a news release.

    Yesterday, North Korean officials threatened to pull out of next month’s summit with President Donald Trump over demands tied to its nuclear weapons program. The announcement comes when tensions are already high over increasing inflation fears, Japan’s economic contraction, and uncertainty around trade between the U.S. and China. Markets are likely to continue to react with uncertainty as the global political climate continues to grow increasingly volatile. WTI crude oil remained near $71.00 despite concerns as markets look to the Energy Information Administration on the state of U.S. inventory levels.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

An April that many investors hoped would end two months of indecision in the stock market is not quite living up to billing.

While benchmark indexes eked out another week of gains, below the surface, frustration was the rule. Reactions to earnings results are muted — the average stock is flat the day after reporting. Megacap tech companies are soaring, but makers of semiconductors and household goods have stumbled.

It’s not that companies aren’t beating estimates. Most are, by the widest margins in years. It’s that the market has been slow to reward them — and quick to punish those that fall short.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: Fortinet, Inc.(FTNT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Yesterday, the Fed Open Market Committee announced it would not raise interest rates this session. The central bank committee, which is in charge of monetary policy, said that inflation is rising and that the U.S. economy is getting better. Markets are now looking forward to the next meeting on June 12 for the U.S. Federal Reserve to bump rates higher for the second time in 2018. Shares of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) slumped more than 4.5% after Tesla CEO Elon Musk held an highly unusual earnings call. After announcing that his firm burned through $700 million in cash during the quarter of 2018, Musk refused to take any more questions on the company’s fiscal health, dismissing analysts’ questions as “boring.” Musk instead spent the rest of the quarterly call taking questions from a YouTuber named Gali Russell who had lobbied Musk on Twitter to let him partake in the earnings call. This morning, the U.S. Labor Department reported initial jobless claims rose by 2,000, to 211,000. Analysts had projected 225,000 for the week. The tightening U.S. labor market has now seen the total number of Americans receiving benefits fall to the lowest level since 1973. America’s unemployment rate is sitting at 4.1%, the lowest figure in 17 years. Tomorrow, the Labor Department will release the April jobs report.

We’ve also chronicled the major threat posed by the “New Arms Race” ignited by hypersonic weapons – both conventional and nuclear-tipped. (In fact, we even told you about the new hypersonic spyplane the military plans to build.)

Our goal of course, was to spotlight the need for new types of missile-defense systems – while zeroing in on the stocks most likely to benefit from the development of these newest technologies.

And to keep you ahead of the crowd.

It was amusing, infuriating and truly scary last week when Trump administration spokesperson Sean Spicer, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and several current GOP House members conducted a pre-emptive, coordinated attack on the Congressional Budget Office and said Congress didn’t need to wait for CBO’s analysis of the Republican Affordable Care Act replacement because it’s numbers were always wrong.

It was amusing because Spicer — the Trump official who has had the least credibility literally since the administration began on Inauguration Day — was attacking the Washington organization that has consistently been considered a paragon of non partisanship, objectivity and solid analysis since it opened for business in the 1970s.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018: Viva Entertainment Group (OTTV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Everything that Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) was offering via its app as of yesterday just got expanded today. Per this morning’s press release, all the digital content from FlixFling is going to be available on the Viva over-the-top television (and music) streaming platform.

    The product is called Viva Middleware. The software/platform allows anyone to get into the over-the-top television business like Netflix and Hulu already are. Telecom service providers, media websites, universities, and pretty much anyone else can custom-build their own IPTV service, and collect subscription fees and/or ad revenue for doing so. Viva does all the back-end work, while the seller collects the customers.

    The trick is simply filling the pipeline with content, and at the same time, convincing customers that there’s enough quality content at the source to become a paying subscriber. And in this case, the fact that the app works on any operating system or any device is a key selling feature.

    Viva Entertainment Group has already been curating content for a while now, and has a nice library including a huge number of radio stations. That content took a huge leap forward today, however, with FlixFling being added to the mix.

    If it rings a bell for OTTV shareholders, it should. FlixFling is streaming media company started by Thomas Ashley, who just so happened to join the OTTV Board of Directors last week.

    FlixFling is an online video-on-demand content provider specializing in new, previously released and classic movies from most major studios. Customers can watch thousands of movie selections on an easy, flexible interface from your favorite devices or connected TV. FlixFling brings a new and exciting movie content viewing experience to customers who can’t find what they want through other online video rental sites; FlixFling has access to new releases quicker than Hulu or Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).

    It’s a real coup for

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    Calling a spade a spade, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is the dominant name in the over-the-top television space right now, though Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH) deserves a mention. For that matter, the relatively new Vue service from Sony Corp (NYSE:SNE) has the potential to cause problems for both DISH and Netflix, as Vue offers several different bundles, all of which include some major network broadcasts (a big piece of the pie Netflix is missing).

    And yet, for as popular as those OTT choices are, they’re not necessarily great investments right now, as each alternative to traditional cable television is on the verge of a major disruption now that a new technology has been unveiled by creator Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV). In short, Viva Entertainment Group will allow anyone to get into the subscription-based IPTV game with their own customized version of an over-the-top service, and even within that platform the subscriber has more choice than Sony Vue, Sling TV, or Netflix can provide.

    The reality check was delivered this morning on the heels of a press release/shareholder update. Some of what Viva Entertainment Group was already known. Some of what was said, though, was new, and compelling.

    For the unfamiliar, Viva Entertainment Group is the name behind Viva Middleware… a white label app that any third party can utilize as a means of selling OTT, IPTV services to their crowd of users as a means of generating revenue.

    There are multiple advantages to this platform and arrangement, including a custom-built product that can effectively target a particular demographic. Case in point? Last week, OTTV entered a joint venture with Oi2 Media to create an OTT product catering to the Latino market. Oi2 Media is the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content, offering both music and television. It’s the name behind CNN en Espanol and ESPN Deportes Radio, just

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    The phrase “over the top television” – or its acronym “OTT” – aren’t necessarily newly-coined ones. The phrase/abbreviation materialized shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television services less than a decade ago. The over-the-top race didn’t really heat up, however, until the past few months. Once it did heat up though, sparks started to fly in earnest.

    They’re still flying too, and will be for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to say about it. Netflix, Hulu [jointly owned by Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA)] and all the rest of the relatively new players in this space may want to look over their shoulder. In the meantime, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT industry is going to be made during the next 10 years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the totally dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. It was admittedly the first on the scene, and therefore was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market (which it still holds to this day). It’s largely become a commoditized business though.

    Case in point? Aside from Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the game with its product called CBS All Access. The service allows subscribers, for a nominal monthly fee, to access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found respectable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), has really broken new ground in the over the top market by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that package at a rate that’s much less than what it would cost a cable subscriber

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    The phrase “over the top television” or “OTT” for short, aren’t exactly new terms. The phrase/abbreviation was coined shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television subscriptions a little less than a decade ago. The over-the-top battle didn’t get heated, though, until the past few months. But, now that some more gladiators are in the arena, sparks are starting to fly.

    They’re still flying too, and should do so for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to do with it it. See, while Netflix, Hulu — jointly owned by Time Warner, Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) — and a whole slew of other new players in this market may want to take notice of this up-and-comer. At the same time, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT business is going to be made over the course of the next several years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. Yes, it was the first on the scene as such was was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market. It’s largely become a commoditized business in the meantime though.

    For example, outside of Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the fray with a service called CBS All Access. The product allows subscribers -for a nominal monthly fee – access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found some measurable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), is another one of the alternatives to the alternative that’s truly made a dent in the over the top market…. by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that p

    If Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) seems a little perkier than usual today, you’re not imagining things – it is. At first glance it would be easy to conclude it was yesterday afternoon’s news that prodded OTTV a bit, and maybe that’s got something to do with it. More than anything though, the extra spring in the stock’s step most likely has to do with the fact that the company is hosting a pre-launch party this evening, and traders are (understandably) thinking tomorrow could be a very big day for Viva Entertainment Group shares.

    If it vaguely rings a bell, that may be because the company announced the event back in mid-November, mentioning there would be special performances by Grammy Award winner Jorge Moreno, and SMG/SONY RED recording artist Soleil J. Guests would also be able to try out the over-the-top television service Viva has built right at the party. Once those attendees see first-hand what a game-changer the platform could be, odds are good they’ll want to invest the next chance they get. That would be Wednesday morning. Waiting until then, however, could be too late, so savvy traders are trickling in now.

    As a refresher, Viva Middleware is a turn-key technology that allows anyone to get into the OTT business with their own customized over-the-top television service. Live broadcasts, on-demand, music channels and original programming are all possible. This means they can customize the product locally or regionally, or thematically, like an all-sports or an all sci-fi venue. The possibilities are endless, which is in stark contrast to Netflix’s “what you get is what you get” approach.

    Viva Entertainment Group has been putting the pieces of the puzzle together all year long…. technology, personnel, clients, content.

    The latest of the personnel additions was announced on Monday -Mr. Rory Conaway is now on the OTTV Board of Directors.

    It’s a nice pickup. Rory Conaway has been in the IT and Wireless I

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018: Uni-Pixel, Inc.(UNXL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Small cap sensor film stock UniPixel Inc (NASDAQ: UNXL) is sinking by a double digit percentage in after-hours and pre-market trading after reporting Q4 earnings. The problem for UniPixel is that only a few analysts cover the small cap stock and the bottom line loss was a bit worst than the 10 cent loss they were expecting. The stock also had a slight uptick ahead of earnings:

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Small cap sensor film stockUniPixel Inc (NASDAQ: UNXL) reportedQ1 2017 earnings after the Thursday market close withshares falling both on Thursday and in afterhours trading. UniPixel is not well covered or known by analysts yet and this can make shares volatile. However and last September, we had suggested a long position in the stock based upon technicals by saying:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Uni-Pixel (UNXL) manufactures electronic film products using its proprietary manufacturing process, UniBoss. This stock closed up 7.6% to $16.84 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 1.88 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 1 million

    Volume % Change: 108%

    From a technical perspective, UNXL bounced sharply higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $15.89 with above-average volume. This stock looks to be forming a double bottom chart pattern at $14.91 to $15.16. If that bottom holds, then shares of UNXL could see a continuation of Monday’s upside action.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in UNXL as long as it’s trending above $15.16 or $14.91 and then once it sustains a move or close above Monday’s high of $17.53 with volume that hits near or above 1 million shares. If we get that move soon, then UNXL will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at its 200-day moving average of $19.89.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Shares of UniPixel Inc (NASDAQ: UNXL) were down 22 percent to $1.63 after the company announced a public offering of newly issued shares of stock. UniPixel plans to offer 5.35 million shares of its own stock at a public offering price of $1.50 per share with the option for its underwriters to purchase up to an additional 802,500 shares.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018: SanDisk Corporation(SNDK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Early on Friday, analysts at RBC Capital boosted the near-term estimates on SanDisk Corporation (SNDK), a manufacturer of data storage products, because a fire at SK Hynix’s factory should lead to favorable pricing over the next two quarters.

    “We see a favorable pricing environment as a result of SK Hynix’s fire, which threatens to curtail NAND output as the company likely re-purposes production back toward DRAM, resulting in lower than expected incremental NAND wafers vs. company’s plan of 170K/WPM,” RBC Capital analyst Freedman said. “Consequently, we see stronger pricing through EoY before SK Hynix ramps NAND toward normalized prod’t levels as DRAM resources are restored/replaced.”

    The analysts maintain an “Outperform” rating on SDNK and still see shares reaching $76. This price target suggests a 26% upside to the stock’s Thursday closing price of $60.08. Furthermore, they boosted SanDisk’s 2013 EPS estimates from $4.82 to $4.95.

    SanDisk shares were up a fraction during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 38.11% year-to-date.

    Here are a few more notable items from the week.

    First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) completed 18 MW of solar farms in Thailand with Prime Road Group. This is a module supply agreement from First Solar and is an example of the strategy it’s moving to in the long term. Look for more projects in which the company supplies equipment but a third party does construction and owns the project. Speaking of supply agreements, First Solar signed a 140 MW module supply agreement in Australia this week. The project will begin construction in April, so this will be a source of revenue for First Solar this year. Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ) sold three utility-scale solar projects totaling 59.8 MW to Fengate Real Asset Investments this week for $195.3 million. This helps monetize assets on the balance sheet, reducing risk for the business in 2017.

    That’s all for this week in solar. Earnings season in the industry starts next week, so we’ll be able to see how strategies and trends are playing out in what’s sure to be an exciting 2017.
