Best China Stocks To Invest In 2021

Shares of Chipotle (CMG ) have soared over 70% in the last 12 months on the back of solid sales and a chief executive change. Now the question for investors and Wall Street is will Chipotle’s run of success continue, or will it slide back down?

We need to take a look at what to expect from the fast-casual firm’s upcoming fourth-quarter financial results to see.

Overview

Chipotle owned and operated all of its 2,450 restaurants as of the end of the third quarter, across the U.S., Canada, the UK, France, and Germany. The firm rose to prominence for its simplicity and healthy ingredients and helped spark the larger fast-casual movement that includes Shake Shack (SHAK ) .

Chipotle hired its new CEO Brian Niccol last spring. Niccol took over after Chipotle suffered nearly two years of weak sales, spurred in part by multiple food-safety concerns. Since his arrival from Yum Brands’ (YUM ) Taco Bell, he has focused on digital ordering and delivery, simmilar to industry giants like Starbucks (SBUX ) and McDonald’s (MCD ) and retailers Walmart (WMT ) and Target (TGT ) .

Top 5 Stocks To Own Right Now

Box (NYSE:BOX) is a cloud company that doesn’t trade like a cloud company.

It’s also a good example of making lemons from lemonade.

Box was founded in 2005, at the dawn of cloud, and positioned itself as a consumer service. Within a few years, however, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and its rivals were giving away gigabytes of space free to consumers, almost more than they wanted.

So, Box evolved. It now positions itself as a content management company, a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for collaboration, process automation, and the creation of custom data protection, security and compliance features.

This has won Box corporate business and helped it integrate with smaller cloud players like ServiceNow (NYSE:NOW). Techcrunch calls it an “enterprise cloud stalwart.”

What it hasn’t done is make BOX stock’s post-IPO shareholders a ton of money.

Founder In a Box

Since Box went public in early 2015 with initial trades over $24 per share, BOX stock has fallen to below $11 per share and, in the last two years, more than doubled from that price as its new business model has taken hold.

That could be the slogan for the U.S. marijuana industry. Sales of medical and recreational marijuana could climb to around $22 billion by 2022, according to the 2018 edition of the Marijuana Business Factbook. Last year, total marijuana sales in the U.S. were estimated to be between $5.8 billion and $6.6 billion.

There aren’t many industries that will more than triple in size in just five years. Investors looking to ride this wave don’t have many alternatives right now. But there is one top stock to buy that should profit tremendously from growth in the U.S. marijuana market.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

In November 2017, chip giant Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) offered to buy fellow chipmaker Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) for $70 per share, a 28% premium to Qualcomm’s closing price before speculation about the bid leaked. Qualcomm shares had been significantly depressed prior to Broadcom’s offer amid an ugly legal battle with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) that threatened to destroy Qualcomm’s wireless technology licensing operation — its biggest profit center.

Qualcomm wasn’t happy with the offer, but Broadcom wasn’t willing to give up so easily. In February, Broadcom bumped its offer up to $82 per share — an offer that Qualcomm still wasn’t happy with.

Though Qualcomm’s board of directors rejected the $82-per-share offer, claiming that it undervalued the company, Broadcom seemed to have significant shareholder support for its offer. Indeed, Qualcomm shareholders were on track to vote out the current board of directors and vote in a slate of directors hand-picked by Broadcom to approve this deal when President Trump issued an executive order blocking the takeover bid.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

European Pressphoto Agency

An upbeat reading on U.S. retail sales isn’t enough to keep U.S. stock indices from tanking today. The Dow dropped more than 200 points in late afternoon market action.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1.19% and the S&P 500 fell 1% while the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.6%.

Energy and financial shares in the S&P 500 led the declines with the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) and the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) falling 1.5% and 1.3%respectively.

Stock indices have fluctuated severely this week. The Dow posted its biggest gain since March on Tuesday, only to record its worst fall since Feb. 11 the next day. As of now, the blue chip index is poised to record its third straight weekly loss.

Investors are facing a variety of overhangs, from cloudy expectations for corporate earnings to next month’s Federal Reserve meeting and the UK is poised to vote on whether to exit the European Union.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Cameco Corporation(CCJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    A steep drop in the price of uranium has punished uranium miners like industry giant Cameco Corporation (NYSE:CCJ). However, the company’s conservative approach has allowed it to weather this difficult stretch in relative stride, with its uranium contracts giving it financial leeway that many peers simply haven’t had.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    The point here is that just because a company isn’t technically in the energy sector doesn’t mean that the energy sector isn’t an important area to monitor. As another example, a supply demand imbalance in the uranium market is wreaking havoc on Cameco Corp. (NYSE:CCJ) as low commodity prices make turning a profit increasingly difficult. This is partly being driven by overproduction on the mining side of the business, but also by the demand side from utility customers. Demand for nuclear power fell off after the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster in Japan even though long-term construction trends in places like China and India suggest it will recover in the future.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Shares of Cameco Corp. (NYSE:CCJ) are down nearly 80% from highs they reached in the mid-2000s. Falling uranium prices have been the primary reason for the decline, since this giant Canadian uranium miner is strictly focused on the nuclear fuel. At this point, there doesn’t appear to be a dramatic and imminent upturn in the uranium market’s future. However, it looks like Cameco is taking all of the right steps to get its mojo back when prices do start to turn higher. Here’s what you need to know before you buy Cameco stock.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Being a uranium miner hasn’t been easy lately, with the spot price of the nuclear fuel hovering near 14-year lows. It’s no wonder, then, that Cameco Corp. (NYSE:CCJ), the largest publicly traded uranium miner in the world, has seen its shares fall more than 70% over the past decade. Earnings results, meanwhile, have dipped into the red over the last two years. Believe it or not, however, there’s a bright side to all this bad news. Here’s what you need to know.   

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Scana Corporation(SCG)

    Shares of SCANA Co. (NYSE:SCG) have received a consensus recommendation of “Hold” from the twelve research firms that are currently covering the company, Marketbeat reports. Three investment analysts have rated the stock with a sell recommendation, six have issued a hold recommendation and two have issued a buy recommendation on the company. The average 12 month target price among brokerages that have issued a report on the stock in the last year is $43.75.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Aside from checking on whether the company achieves that aim, there are two other items investors should keep an eye on in the second half of the year. First, the company continues to make progress on its proposed merger with SCANA (NYSE:SCG). Shareholders of SCANA recently voted in favor of that transaction, and Dominion has won the approval of several regulators, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the Federal Trade Commission, and the state of Georgia. However, the company still needs to get permission for the deal in North Carolina and South Carolina, with the latter one being a key sticking point due to SCANA’s failed nuclear plant in the state. While Dominion has offered several concessions in the deal to win over both customers and legislators, it might not be enough since the state wants an even bigger rate reduction. The company remains optimistic that it can close the deal by the end of this year, though it’s unclear if that will happen.
