Top Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

Because yield is the proportion of a company’s annual dividend payout relative to its stock price, it’s not unusual to see stocks that offer big yields also trading at relatively low price-to-earnings multiples. However, a stock isn’t necessarily cheap just because it has a big dividend and a P/E that is below the market average. 

Instead of having unquestioned devotion to earnings multiples and yields, dividend investors will typically be best served by seeking out businesses that are also poised for the types of continued success that will allow payouts to keep flowing and growing. Within that mold, three Motley Fool contributors have identified Brookfield Renewable Partners LP (NYSE: BEP), AstraZeneca PLC (NYSE: AZN), and Hanesbrands (NYSE: HBI) as stocks with big yields that also trade at substantial discounts relative to their long-term earnings potential. Read on to find out why.

Best Bank Stocks To Invest In 2019

The January jobs report showed more than 100,000 jobs were created last month than economists expected. Beats of that magnitude usually spark a lot of optimism about the economy, driving stocks higher over the subsequent days and months and benefiting energy, industrial and banking stocks the most, history shows.

CNBC analysis using the Kensho tool looked at all the times in the last 20 years when the jobs report exceeded estimates by 100,000 or more and what happens to stocks and certain sectors the day of the report, as well as one week and three months later.

Day of:
S&P 500 jumps 0.6 percent on averageBest stocks: Industrials (+1.1 percent avg. gain), Energy (+0.9 percent), Technology (+0.8 percent) One week later:
S&P 500 adds 0.6 percent on averageBest stocks: Industrials (+1.5 percent avg. gain), Energy (+1.2 percent), Technology (+0.9 percent) Three months later:
S&P 500 adds 1.8 percentBest stocks: Energy (+6.9 percent) Materials (+4.2 percent avg. gain), Industrials (+3.4 percent), Financials (+3.2 percent)

This historical data via Kensho fits with the fundamental case. A much stronger-than-expected jobs report signals the economy is doing better than we thought, so investors pile into economically sensitive stocks like energy and industrial shares. Bank stocks do well as yields jump, as they were on Friday.

    Merger mania hit a wall Thursday. Tribune Media Co. (NYSE: TRCO) killed off its merger deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group (Nasdaq: SBGI) and filed a breach of contract lawsuit against its suitor. Tribune alleges that the broadcasting firm was very aggressive with regulators as it sought approval for a deal. Tribune also claims that Sinclair refused to sell stations in certain markets, a condition of the deal. Oil prices are trying to recover after a 3% slump on Wednesday. The decline came after the first round of sanctions against Iran by the U.S. government. Iran, which shipped three million barrels of oil per day in July, might now see its demand for crude dry up. This is likely to exacerbate existing trade tensions between the United States and the Middle Eastern regime.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2018: TC PipeLines, LP(TCP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That funding progress is important given an unexpected development in the quarter when the Federal Regulatory Commission (FERC) revised a long-standing policy and will no longer allow master limited partnerships to collect an allowance for income taxes on certain pipelines. That change could have a major impact on the cash flows of TransCanada’s MLP TC Pipelines, LP (NYSE:TCP). While TC Pipelines isn’t sure how much this change will impact its cash flow, it took precautionary actions by slashing its distribution to investors. That payout reduction and the related uncertainty has weighed significantly on TC Pipelines’ valuation. Because of that, Girling said that “further dropdowns of assets by TransCanada into TC Pipelines is not considered a viable funding option at this time,” and he isn’t sure if it will be one in the future. However, he did clarify that even without future dropdowns to TC Pipelines, TransCanada believes it has the “financial capacity to fund our existing capital program through our predictable and growing cash flow from operations as well as several other funding alternatives.”

Best Biotech Stocks To Invest In 2018

Michael A. Robinson

To hear Wall Street tell it, AbbVie Inc. (NYSE: ABBV) drove right into a ditch last month.

Here’s the thing. The company announced results of a Phase 2 trial on March 22 that were disappointing but hardly fatal. The results mean AbbVie won’t seek fast-track approval for its promising antibody-drug conjugate, Rova-T, but it still expects to be able to take it to market in the near future.

Wall Street overreacted – no surprise there – and AbbVie shares lost 15% in three sessions.

Here’s the thing. Wall Street’s overreaction to AbbVie’s disappointing U.S. Food and Drug Administration trial results weren’t the only reason for its share-price plummet.

You see, though it shouldn’t be, biotech is in the dog house – and investors are primed to punish stocks in the sector for just about anything.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.
    Finally, investors will continue to monitor ongoing developments in Washington around the presidency of Donald Trump. The White House has asked a federal judge to block prosecutors from reviewing any files seized from his lawyer’s office during a raid by the FBI last week. The agency seized a trove of documents from lawyer Michael Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into a payment of hush money. The spat between the White House and the FBI continues a day after former FBI Director James Comey called Trump “morally unfit to be president.”

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018

Both Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Google’s parent company,Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL), are trading near their all-time highs. Amazon’s stock has climbed so much in the past 12 months, it’s made its founder and CEO Jeff Bezos the second wealthiest person in the world, recently surpassing Warren Buffett and Amancio Ortega. Alphabet shares are up a modest 11%, compared with Amazon’s 51% increase.

But investors can’t dwell too much on the past. They need to look to the future to determine which stocks offer the best opportunities for further gains. Today we’ll compare the two tech giants head to head to determine which is a better buy: Amazon.com or Alphabet.

Amazon is firing on all cylinders

Amazon’s core retail business is strong. It generated $124 billion in revenue in 2016 across its North American and international retail segments. That’s up 25% from $99 billion in 2015. Amazon’s growth is fueled by increasing Prime membership, which acts as a huge incentive for both customers and merchants to use Amazon’s marketplace before looking elsewhere. A survey from BloomReach found that 55% of online shoppers begin their product search on Amazon.com.

    Wynn Resortsgained 7.9% to $103.08 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,294.69.

    Gabelli’s Adam Trivison argues that Wynn’s earnings weren’t that bad:

    On January 26, 2017, Wynn Resorts reported 4Q16 results in-line with our expectations, but after accounting for a $6 million negative hold impacted to EBITDA, underlying performance looks better than expected. Commentary on January-to-date performance at Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau was promising. We have adjusted our estimates to account for a more even balance between Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace than we had previously anticipated.

    Wynn Resorts’ market capitalization rose to $10.5 billion today from $9.7 billion yesterday.

    Perhaps the largest ETF dedicated to tracking French stocks should be getting more attention. In a year in which ETFs tracking the PIIGS economies are struggling, EWQ has been solid. The France ETF's 2.7 percent year-to-date gain is slightly ahead of the comparable Germany ETF and more than twice as good as the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK).

    Still, there are instances of limited appetite for diversified Europe ETFs, particularly those with significant U.K. exposure. The Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK) hasn't added (or lost) any capital since June 20. That ETF devotes 31.4 percent of its weight to U.K. stocks.

    Here is a dichotomy. Global small-caps are performing admirably. The WisdomTree Europe SmallCap Dividend Fund (NYSE: DFE) is an example of a Europe ETF that is defying some unfavorable trends.
