Top 5 Stocks To Buy Right Now

Labor Day in the U.S. is here, and that means an extended weekend for traders and investors alike as stocks regularly set fresh record highs.

Heading into the weekend, U.S. equities continued their upward march, boosted by technology stocks after private payrolls data on Wednesday suggested the Federal Reserve might not have to taper its bond purchases as soon as expected. The Fed has kept interest rates low and asset prices high by buying bonds.

The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average traded lower Friday after the governments broader report on August hiring came in far short of expectations. The more contagious Delta variant of Covid-19 weighed on hiring, raising more concerns over economic growth.

While Hurricane Ida this week shut down much of U.S. oil production and refining capacity, boosting oil prices, financials proved to be the dogs of the index. Wells Fargo was the worst S&P 500 component for the week, while Capital One was third-worst.

    Shares of CenturyLink(NYSE:CTL), a global communications and IT services company, fell 13.9% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after the company reported its fourth-quarter 2018 results. Investors weren’t happy that the company’s revenue declined on a year-over-year basis and that it posted a loss — and they really didn’t like the fact that CenturyLink cut its annual dividend.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Diageo (NYSE:DEO) has been on the short list of companies that many believe should look to partner up with a marijuana company. Ever since Constellation Brands made its massive cannabis investment, many investors have looked for other beer and spirits companies to follow suit, and Diageo in particular had rumors swirling last year about its potentially looking at three different companies in the marijuana space. So far, though, nothing’s come of it.

A month ago, Tesla’s closing stock price peaked at $383.45, and last week the stock closed below $330.

Apparently, investors are beginning to catch on to the fact that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a severe case of a behavioral condition known as “the planning fallacy.” People who suffer from the planning fallacy are serial offenders when it comes to projects coming in over budget, late, and with fewer features than promised. The New York Times reported that Telsa’s main problematic issues pertain to a slower timetable than expected for the introduction of the Model 3, along with problems that relate to the manufacture of its battery packs.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Ive been right about Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) thus far.

There seem to be only two schools on Tesla. You either love the carmaker, or you hate it with a passion. I fall into the latter category, not because I’m anti clean energy, or opposed to new entries to the auto industry, but because of the grandiose and inefficient management history the company has had under Elon Musk. Ive written often about the competition and general cutthroat nature of the auto industry that Tesla faces. Ive been waiting for some time to see signs of Teslas inability to ramp up car production in a way that justifies its wild stock valuation. And boy howdy have I taken some flak in the comments section.

This week has given me some vindication on my feelings about Tesla. The stock is down on rough news of production complications, and a fading faith in Elon Musks rhetoric, something I said would happen. The valuation is not justified, and cannot be justified when youre selling such a small amount of cars and not turning any profit. I get it that this stock performance is about future potential earnings, but the company is not putting together concrete evidence that it is working toward those types of numbers.
