Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019

What happened

Shares of Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) rallied 22.1% in January, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Several positive catalysts fueled the natural gas pipeline company’s stock last month, helping it rebound from a rough 2018, in which it lost nearly 28% of its value even though it completed several important strategic transactions and cash flow growth reaccelerated.

So what

One issue that seems to have weighed on Williams Companies’ stock last year was the slump in oil prices during the fourth quarter, which caused shares of most energy stocks to sell off. Williams’ plunge, however, seemed a bit much, since it has very little exposure to commodity prices given that long-term fee-based contracts underpin 97% of its cash flow. Despite that fact, Williams’ correlation to crude prices continued in January, though this time to the upside as oil rallied 18%, which helped ignite the rally in the company’s stock.

    Markets are cheering the jobs report, which easily topped expectations, this morning. In addition to a falling unemployment rate, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that U.S. hourly earnings increased by 0.3%. This report could provide the U.S. Federal Reserve with additional reasons to raise interest rates as concerns about inflation persist. The Fed has said it will raise interest rates two more times in 2018. However, the market has priced in a 30% chance that the Fed hikes rates three additional times. U.S. President Donald Trump has fired the opening rounds of a possible trade war. The United States hit the European Union, Canada, and Mexico with tariffs on steel and aluminum. Canada responded yesterday with retaliatory measures to target similar U.S. products. Crude oil prices fell Friday as markets continue to eye OPEC’s next move. According to reports, Saudi Arabia and Russia have discussed plans to increase total production by 1 million barrels per day. The uptick would aim to address falling production in Venezuela and U.S. sanctions in Iran. The rumors come as U.S. production is sitting at near-record highs and is rivaling the output of Russia. These factors are part of a wider list of issues that will only continue to press oil prices lower in the months ahead.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

In a year when online competition is fierce and brick-and-mortar shops are struggling, major retailers are likely to come out swinging on Black Friday this year.

Ron Kuntze, a professor of marketing at the University of New Haven in Connecticut, thinks Black Friday 2018 will be big for consumers – big, that is, when it comes to savings and customer service.

To maximize your odds of finding low prices on what you want to buy, some deals are worth waiting for until Nov. 23. Based on past sales, here’s what to hold off buying until Black Friday – and what to do if you can’t wait that long.

Don’t buy electronics

We can’t know for sure what deals are coming this year but, in general, it’s in your best interest to wait until Black Friday to shop for electronics (or Thanksgiving Day, when many sales actually start).

    Monday was a generally down day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks giving up early-morning gains to finish modestly lower. Most market participants focused the bulk of their attention on deteriorating financial conditions in Turkey, with signs that the plunge in the value of the nation’s currency could have impacts across the globe. For instance, Argentina had to boost a key interest rate by 5 percentage points to 45% in order to defend its own currency, and in the U.S., financial stocks were generally under some pressure as investors tried to assess possible exposure if the Turkish crisis extends outward. Even with those difficulties, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN), Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD), and Antares Pharma (NASDAQ:ATRS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Elon Musk is admitting he messed up sort of.

Days after the Tesla (TSLA) boss shocked Wall Street by completely dismissing critical questions from two analysts as “boring,” Musk said on Friday it was “foolish of me” to ignore the queries.

Musk’s insults, and his refusal even to respond to legitimate questions, made for one of the weirdest corporate earnings conference calls in recent memory. The bizarre performance sent Tesla stock plunging, wiping $2.8 billion off its market value and $632 million off Musk’s personal stake.

“I should have answered their questions, live,” Musk tweeted a day later.

Yet the Tesla CEO also mounted a defense of the call that may raise even more questions about his handling of the situation, which continues to overshadow the company’s actual results.

Musk suggested that the reason he dismissed the questions was because the analysts didn’t have “buy” ratings on Tesla stock. But that’s no reason to hand the call over to a blogger from YouTube for a dozen questions that spanned 23 minutes, which is what Musk did.

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher.

Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Watch For 2018

Widows and orphans have had a tough few months.   Long-term U.S. Treasury bonds – often cited as the safest investment on the planet and suitable for the most cautious investors – lost more than seven years' worth of income in just the past four months.   Lending money to the U.S. government for 30 years in exchange for a 2% yield turned out not to be such a good idea. Yields are now 50% higher than they were back in July. And these Treasury bonds, or "T-bonds," have collapsed in price.   But that has given us a fantastic risk/reward setup today…   Let's start by looking at this chart of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT)…

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Bromels]

    That’s what happened to U.S. oil and gas pipeline operatorsKinder Morgan, Inc.(NYSE:KMI) and master limited partnership(MLP)Plains All American Pipeline(NYSE:PAA) in 2016. Both made a major dividend/distribution cut. Both stocks took a hit. And neither one has recovered: Plains All American is down 53.3% over the last three years, while Kinder Morgan is down a painful 63.1%.

  • [By ]

    The market has pummeled master limited partnerships (MLPs) over the past few years due to the impact the oil market downturn had on their operations and business model. Among the hardest-hit have been oil pipeline MLP Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and gas pipeline giant Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), both of which have lost more than half their value over the last three years. That persistent slump comes even though their turnaround strategies are beginning to gain steam. While these companies still have some work to do before they’re back on solid ground, both could deliver significant returns as they complete their plans and the oil market continues rebounding over the next few years. That upside potential makes them compelling options for investors with a higher tolerance for risk.

This is the company that was formed by a merger of Live Nation, the concert venue and rock-star-promoting business that it is. So many musicians, today, of course, make most of their money on tours, since the sale of CDs, you might have noticed, has dropped off a cliff in recent years. Live Nation, then, bought a merger with Ticketmaster, so this is the company that sells you the tickets to come into its venues to watch the entertainment that it’s promoting. It’s a tremendously powerful model.

    It may be unhealthy to trade drug stocks Friday. The word on Wall Street is to not expect too much from President Trump’s speech on drug prices. That means expect the unexpected, and prepare for a volatility spike in key healthcare names such as Express Scripts (ESRX) , CVS Health (CVS) , Endo International (ENDP) , Mallinckrodt (MNK) , McKesson (MCK) and Cardinal Health (CAH) .

    Reports TheStreet’s Bill Meagher: “Evercore ISI may be an outlier as its analysts anticipate that recent speeches by officials from the Food and Drug Administration, Health and Human Services and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services may have telegraphed the Trump administration’s willingness to move beyond loud talk and tweets into policy discussions. In those tweets and in talks with his cabinet, Trump has been critical of the pharmaceutical sector and its pricing of prescription drugs, famously saying on at least two occasions that companies are “getting away with murder.”

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Warren Buffett. Image source: The Motley Fool.

Since the beginning of 2016, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) has seen the value of the seven bank stocks in its investment portfolio increase by $5.6 billion, or 10.8%.

That’s a lot of money, butwhen you compare it to how blue-chip bank stocks performed more generally, something interesting sticks out. While Berkshire’s portfolio of bank stocks outperformed the S&P 500 this year, it underperformed the main index that tracks bank stocks.

The drag on Buffett’s bank stocks

You can see this by looking at the KBW Bank Index, which tracks two dozen of the nation’s leading bank stocks. It’s up 26.4% this year. That’s more than twice the gain Berkshire Hathaway has seen on its bank holdings.

What’s the deal? The answer is that not all of the bank stocks selected by Warren Buffett for Berkshire Hathaway’s portfolio performed equally well this year. One in particular dragged down its returns: Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC).

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018

Sometimes it feels like our world is falling apart; global warming, global storming, extreme poverty, the glass ceiling, and racism highlight a list that could go on and on.  It also seems that many of our political leaders are failing to recognize their role as global stewards.  But all is not lost.  It is time for you at home and at work to step up and change things.

What does that mean?  Let’s start with who you are.  I’m assuming you want to live a meaningful and purposeful life while respecting all people and the environment. (If that isn’t the case, stop reading this article!) I’m also assuming you would want to do this at work as well as at home.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018: Level 3 Communications, Inc.(LVLT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    A rumored merger with CenturyLink (CTL) sent Level 3 Communications (LVLT) soaring to the top of the S&P 500 today.

    Pixabay

    Shares of Level 3 Communications climbed 11% to $51.87 today, even as the S&P 500 declined 0.3% to 2,133.04. CenturyLink didn’t perform too badly, either: It gained 9.7% to $31.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    After opening up 0.6% this morning, Level Three Communications (LVLT) jumped as much as 5.9% on reports that it was considering ways to increase shareholder value (nudge nudge, wink wink, know what I mean?). Citigroup’s Michael Rollins and Neth Wiedemann offer their take:

    Online news source Benzinga recently tweeted that an industry source has told them Level 3 is “reviewing strategic alternatives to maximize holder value, including outright sale or large buyback”. Level 3 shares are up ~4% today after a ~3% move yesterday and shares are up ~10% over the past week. The company has not responded to the news, nor can we substantiate the speculation.

    Level 3 remains our top-pick within our coverage group given its growth, financial flexibility, valuation, and strategic optionality.Level 3 currently trades around ~10x our 2016 OIBDA estimate and ~11x our 2016 discretionary FCF estimate, which we believe is too cheap given its growth profile and deep strategic asset-mix of metro and long-haul fiber.

    We believe that Level 3′s extensive enterprise presence could be attractive for a cable player looking to move up-market and accelerate its investment from thesmall- to medium-sized businesses segment into the enterprise market. We also believe that Zayo Group Holdings (ZAYO) may be an attractive acquisition target for a cable company looking to accelerate an enterprise strategy. We also would not dismiss the possibility that Level 3 and Zayo could consider a merger scenario to become a larger competitor for the enterprise market against the incumbents AT&T (T) and Verizon Communications (VZ).

    Shares of Level 3 have gained 3.7% to $56.39 at 1:20 p.m. today, while Zayo Group Holdings has risen 1% to $28.78, AT&T has advanced 0.5% to $42.61, and Verizon Communications is up 0.7% to $55.87.

    On Thursday afternoon, Wall Street Journal reported that CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL) was in advanced talks to merge with Level 3 Communications (NYSE: LVLT). Back on July 13, Benzinga Pro reported Level 3 was reviewing strategic alternatives.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018: Galaxy Resources Limited (GALXF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    ILC reminds me of Critical Elements [TSXV:CRE] (OTCQX:CRECF) having five projects (CRE has 11), and also of Galaxy Resources (ASX:GXY) (OTCPK:GALXF) by being diversified across brine and spodumene and across three continents. Also some similarity with Neo Lithium’s (OTC:NTTHF) [TSXV:NLC] early stage Argentinean brine project which I recently wrote about here. However, ILC trades at a much smaller market cap of US$8m to that of Critical Elements (US$85m) or Galaxy Resources (US$724m). This is partly due to ILC giving away significant percentages of their projects, and because they are still in the early stages of development.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018: Terra Nitrogen Company L.P.(TNH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Robert Rapier] While the MLP space is dominated by the oil and gas sector, in last week’s article we began to explore some of the more exotic master limited partnership offerings. This week we continue our exploration of nontraditional MLPs by looking at the partnerships supplying fertilizer.

    Rentech (Nasdaq: RTK) has been around for more than a decade, and it has shifted strategies several times. Full disclosure: Rentech’s Chief Technology Officer Harold Wright is a former manager of mine when we were both at ConocoPhillips, and I have visited Rentech’s facility in Commerce City, Colorado.

    For most of Rentech’s existence, the company has sought to commercialize alternative fuels. At one time it had ambitions to build a large coal-to-liquids (CTL) plant, but federal legislation ultimately nudged it instead into the biomass-to-liquids (BTL) space. The company did build a BTL demonstration plant, but ultimately shut it down and has now refocused its efforts on becoming “one of the largest wood processing companies in the world.”

    During its interesting journey as a company, Rentech acquired two ammonia nitrogen fertilizer facilities, which turned out to be a profit center that funded the alternative energy research. In November 2011, Rentech spun off this fertilizer business into an MLP called Rentech Nitrogen Partners LP (NYSE: RNF).

    In the months leading to the spin-off, RTK’s market capitalization was about $200 million. Rentech maintained 60 percent ownership of RNF, and three months after the spin-off RTK’s market cap had risen to $400 million, while investors had bid RNF up to $1 billion. Interestingly, RTK’s share of RNF was worth more than RTK’s entire market cap, a situation that persists. The market currently values Rentech at $482 million, while the valuation of Rentech Nitrogen Partners makes RTK’s 60 percent stake in RNF worth slightly more than $600 million — another illu
