    Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) and Alaska Air (NYSE:ALK) are currently the only two airlines flying nonstop to Hawaii from those cities. Both carriers are fighting back against Southwest’s looming arrival in the market by expanding preemptively.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    In fact, Southwest priced some flights from California to Hawaii as low as $49 one way for a limited time. Yet due to the high pent-up demand for Southwest Airlines flights to Hawaii, these low fares don’t pose a big threat to competitors like Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) and Alaska Air (NYSE:ALK).

    After several years of struggling to build a defensible international route network, leisure-focused airline operator Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) has become one of the most profitable airlines in the U.S. in the past few years. Hawaiian’s pre-tax margin rose from 6.9% in 2014 to 13.2% in 2015, 18.4% in 2016, and 17.6% in 2017.

Best High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc.(BONT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    In 2018, TJX will benefit from a lower tax rate and easier year-over-year comparisons. It is also likely to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Bon-Ton Stores’ (NASDAQ:BONT) pending liquidation. This could send TJX stock to new heights later this year.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Not long ago, liquidation seemed inevitable for bankrupt department store operator Bon-Ton Stores Inc. (NASDAQ:BONT). The company’s desperate attempt to restructure outside the bankruptcy process failed earlier this year when it couldn’t find an investor willing to finance a comeback effort.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    However, the outlook for J.C. Penney stock could be improving as competition in the department store sector starts to wane. Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD) recently revealed another round of store closures. Furthermore, Bon-Ton (NASDAQ:BONT) announced this week that it will liquidate after its attempt to emerge from bankruptcy as a going concern failed.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last week, bankrupt department store operator Bon-Ton Stores (NASDAQ:BONT) made one last desperate bid to survive. A group led by mall owners Namdar Realty Group and Washington Prime Group (NYSE:WPG) signed a letter of intent to buy the company out of bankruptcy and continue operating at least some of its stores.

Best High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Noble Midstream Partners LP (NBLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) operates more traditional energy assets such as oil and gas pipelines and related infrastructure. Long-term contracts also underpin Noble Midstream’s assets, providing it with a predictable cash flow stream. That money currently supports the company’s 4.4% yielding distribution.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

The research group rates the sentiment of press coverage by analyzing more than 20 million news and blog sources in real-time.

    Two great dividend growth stocks to consider are Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM) and Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX). These two pipeline companies are on pace to double their dividend rates over the next five years. That high-octane dividend growth, when combined with their high yields, could give them the fuel to significantly outpace the market in the coming years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Noble Midstream (NYSE:NBLX) has a bold plan to grow its already impressive 7.4%-yielding distribution to investors by 20% per year all the way through 2022, which is one of the fastest rates in the midstream sector. Driving that growth would be the expansion of the company’s oil and gas gathering system to support the anticipated increase in production from customers like its parent, Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL).

Top 10 Stocks To Invest In 2019

Cryptocurrencies simply couldn’t be stopped in 2017, and blockchain technology is to thank for that.

Blockchain is the digital, distributed, and decentralized ledger underlying most virtual currencies that’s responsible for logging all transactions without the need for a financial intermediary, such as a bank. In other words, it’s a new means of transmitting funds and/or logging information.

Why the sudden need for blockchain? Blockchain is the vision of developers who believed that the current banking system had flaws. In particular, they viewed banks acting as third-parties and pilfering transactions fees as unnecessary, and they scoffed at the idea that payment validation and settlement could take up to five business days in cross-border transactions. With blockchain, real-time transactions are a possibility (even across borders), while banks are left out of the equation entirely, presumably reducing transaction fees.

    Speaking of debt, energy infrastructure MLPs tend to take on high levels of it to fund their large infrastructure development projects. That means taking on additional debt to fund a distribution isn’t always feasible. Luckily, in the case of Magellan and Enterprise, their conservative management teams have kept them at comparatively good debt ratings and low levels of debt relative to their peers:

    Company Debt Rating Debt-to-EBITDA Ratio (TTM)  Debt-to-Adjusted-EBITDA Ratio (TTM)
    Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) BBB+/Baa1 3.5 3.3

    This process starts with gathering pipelines, which transports a well’s production to central processing locations that separate oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), and water. The oil then moves by truck, pipeline, or tanker to storage facilities while it waits to go through a refinery or petrochemical complex and get turned into fuel, chemicals, or another oil-based product. While oil companies tend to own some of these midstream assets, especially gathering lines and processing facilities, third parties hold a significant portion of the energy infrastructure in North America. These companies often charge fees for the logistical services provided to oil companies. Master limited partnerships (MLPs) are a noteworthy owner of these assets in the U.S. and most commonly found in the energy midstream sector. MLPs are tax-advantaged entities that pass through most of their income to investors. The largest MLP by enterprise value is Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), while other notable ones include Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) and MPLX (NYSE:MPLX).

    To put a number on its distribution growth, Phillips 66 Partners has increased its disbursement for 16 consecutive quarters (every quarter since its IPO) at a compound annual growth rate of 31%. That’s roughly the target it laid out for its first five years as a public entity. That is, of course, off of a low starting base. The year-over-year increase in the first-quarter distribution was around 20% — still a very impressive number when peers like Enterprise and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) are offering up mid-to-high single-digit increases. (Kinder Morgan’s dividend growth will be huge in the coming years, but that’s a function of increasing the dividend after a painful cut.)

Top 10 Stocks To Invest In 2019: Orezone Gold Corp (ORE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Sandstorm’s due diligence is thorough, they don’t just invest in any company. They like West Africa because they understand the area and the opportunities that exist there. Sandstorm is a royalty and streaming company, so they make these investments and receive cashflow deals that often kick in much later on. But they have already established a presence in Burkina and have deals in place with larger companies like Orezone Gold (TSXV: ORE) and Endeavour Mining (TSX: EDV). Sandstorm’s investment also potentially gives us access to their marketing department through something they call Launch Lab, and it looks like it will really benefit our own marketing efforts and will expose us to more opportunities over the coming year.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018

Activision-Blizzard is Far From Overvalued

Activision-Blizzard (ATVI) is up 54% since we initiated our bullish coverage on the video game giant back in March 17th 2017. ATVI is currently trading at a P/E of 42 by GAAP standards while the S&P 500 index is trading at an P/E of 26. This leads many investors to believe that ATVI is overvalued. However, GAAP P/E is a deceitful measurement of ATVI’s profitability due to the company’s heavy non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses.

In this article, we’ll look at more valuable metrics of profitability such as operating cash flow and free cash flow to show that ATVI is actually undervalued relative to its peers and the market as a whole. Furthermore, we will update our free cash flow-based DCF model to show that ATVI has a 33% upside from its current price.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018: Wynn Resorts, Limited(WYNN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts’ (NASDAQ:WYNN) first quarterly report without founder Steve Wynn as CEO — or even owning any shares of the casino resort operator — went about as well as it could have. The sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn don’t seem to have caused any disruption to the business in the U.S., and Wynn Resorts continued to take market share from competitors in Macau.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Yet not all casinos will benefit equally. Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), for example, derive most of their revenues from operations in Macau. Sands earns 60% there; Wynn, 73%. They could certainly expand their sports books beyond their Vegas operations, but they have so few casinos elsewhere (and Wynn’s Boston Harbor isn’t even completed), it’s only going to be a tiny portion of their overall revenues.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Just in case you thought Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) CEO Matthew Maddox was suggesting he would sell the pending Boston Harbor resort to prevent any “contagion”of misconduct allegations from spreading to the rest of the company, he wants you to know that, no, the project is not up for sale.

Best Casino Stocks To Invest In 2018

Last week Renewable Energy & Power, Inc. (OTC PINK : RBNW ), a diversified corporation with markets in energy-saving technologies of LED lighting, solar and wind energy, announced a large San Francisco Bay Area electronic assembly corporation has approved the installation of 1,275 LED lights for their entire main campus.

This is the third such announcement in as many months by the Las Vegas based company. It got me thinking about what the company does and how LED lighting can impact a business’ bottom line as much as it contributes to reducing emissions and the effects of global warming. But what about LED lights in RBNW’s backyard? How much of the Vegas Strip is LED? Well, it turns out, quite a bit.

Over a year ago three of Nevadas largest casino companies MGM Resorts, Wynn, and Las Vegas Sands announced plans to source renewable energy for their hotels, a move driven both by increasing demand for responsible energy use from the companies that rent their conference halls, and a surplus of cheap power from solar farms in Nevada and California. MGM Resorts had already implemented an ambitious energy conservation effort by replacing 1.3 million light bulbs in its properties with LEDs.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 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’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.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2018: Kinder Morgan, Inc.(KMI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) typically has greater visibility into the future than most companies. That’s because it generates the bulk of its earnings from fee-based contracts and usually has a large backlog of fee-based expansion projects in development, which gives it a good idea of what it will earn in five years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    As promised, natural gas pipeline giant Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) returned to growth mode in 2018. Overall, the company hauled in $1.247 billion ($0.56 per share) of distributable cash flow during the first quarter, which was 3% higher than the year-ago period, and beat its forecast.

  • [By Chuck Saletta]

    Back in late 2015, energy pipeline giant Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) saw its shares tumble as it cut its dividend in response to a threatened reduction of its debt rating. The company took the next few years to shore up its balance sheet and switch to funding much of its expansion capital needs from internal cash flows instead of relying on the debt market.

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Earnings season is now in full swing, with today’s key reports from Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI) andAbbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT). Thanks to tax cuts, expectations are high. Analysts expect profit growth to top 18%, which would be the biggest jump in seven years. But there are a few bearish trends that are still lurking in the market.

Expedia just named Chelsea Clinton to its board of directors.

In a public filing posted Friday, the travel site said it named Clinton — the daughter of Hillary Clinton — as a member of its board on Thursday.

Expedia (EXPE) said Clinton will be paid “in accordance with the company’s standard compensation policies” for board members.

According to an Expedia proxy statement from August, non-employee directors were paid a $45,000 “annual retainer” and awarded $250,000 worth of stock in 2015.

Board members who served on various committees were paid an additional $10,000 to $20,000. But Expedia said in a filing that Clinton “has not been appointed to serve as a member of any committee.”

Clinton serves on the board of one other corporation: IAC/InterActive Corp (IAC), the company that owns websites including Dictionary.com, About.com, Vimeo, Investopedia and The Daily Beast.

She also sits on the boards of the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Access Initiative, the School of American Ballet, the Africa Center, and Weill Cornell Medical College. She’s also co-chair of the advisory board for New York University’s Of Many Institute.

    Wall Street started the week on a muted note on Monday, as major benchmarks generally closed slightly down. Much of the attention among investors was on the bond market, where 10-year Treasury yields rose as high as 2.99%, signaling to some the possibility of much higher financing costs that could punish companies that overextended their balance sheets with debt when rates were much lower.
