Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019

Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor, has been outspoken about his disdain for cryptocurrencies.  

Bitcoin is “probably rat poison squared,” remarked Buffett before the Berkshire Hathaway meeting on Saturday. 

Buffett has never been a fan of any cryptocurrency. “If you buy something like bitcoin or some cryptocurrency, you don’t really have anything that has produced anything. You’re just hoping the next guy pays more,” Buffett said in an April interview with Yahoo Finance. “You aren’t investing when you do that. You’re speculating. There’s nothing wrong with it. If you wanna gamble somebody else will come along and pay more money tomorrow, that’s one kind of game. That is not investing.”

Last November, Buffett made similar remarks. “You can’t value Bitcoin because it’s not a value-producing asset,” he said at the time.

    On Thursday, the European Central Bank held its meeting in Latvia to discuss the future of its quantitative easing program. The central bank of the world’s largest economic bloc said that it will likely end its quantitative easing program in December. This represents an extension beyond the current plan to end the stimulus program in September. ECB President Mario Draghi said the program would be reduced to 15 billion euros each month during the final three months of the year. Yesterday, the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates for the second time in 2018. The central bank said that economic growth has been rising at a solid rate and hinted that it could raise rates two more times this year.

This morning, China announced it would call off its deal to avoid a trade war if the Trump administration proceeds with tariffs on Friday morning.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now: lululemon athletica inc.(LULU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Meanwhile, Under Armour’s rivals like Nike (NYSE:NKE), Adidas (NasdaqOTC: ADDYY), and lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) all performed well in the survey. Piper Jaffray found that Adidas was the fastest-growing brand in the survey, which follows Adidas’s recent stock surge and sales and profit growth. Its Originals, or classic sneakers, like the Stan Smith and the Superstar were especially popular last year. The Superstar, in fact, was the No. 1-selling sneaker last year, according to NPD Group, dethroning Nike for the first time in more than a decade.  

  • [By John Ballard]

    However, Nike’s core business is still selling sneakers. That’s not going to change, and that’s also why lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) should continue to do fine. Just as Nike has been successful turning a basketball shoe into a fashion statement, Lululemon has accomplished the same in athletic apparel. Both companies are really good at what they do best, and that will protect Lululemon’s competitive position from larger rivals.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

No company has learned that lesson better than lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) — and learned it the hard way, having gone from the pinnacle of the retail world to the depths of scandal-plagued pessimism. Yet through it all, a loyal customer base put Lululemon in a position where it had the potential to recover, and recently, the yoga retail specialist has been able to restore some of its former glory.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In 2019

Casinos and gaming suppliers are tripping over themselves to show how excited they are about the Supreme Court overturning a law that banned sports betting in every state in the U.S. except Nevada. Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR), MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM), and Scientific Games (NASDAQ:SGMS) all released statements in support of the potential of expanded sports betting with Scientific Games saying it could be the “greatest wave of gaming expansion in the United States in the past 20 years.” 

There’s no question that sports betting is already big business and legal sports betting is a big opportunity. But it could be years before laws are passed nationwide allowing for sports betting, and, as investors, we don’t know how the move will play out.

Image source: Getty Images.

The opportunity

Legalizing sports betting will bring an industry worth tens of billions of dollars per year out of the shadows of illegal betting, but it’s unclear just how big sportsbooks will be to casinos. The American Gaming Association estimates $150 billion is bet on sports per year, but that’s likely on the high side of the opportunity. Jay Zagorsky recently wrote that the sports betting industry would be about $67 billion if it matches the level of play that the U.K. does per person.

Top Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

Stocks finished the week lower as oil prices fell and the Federal Reserve looks set to raise interest rates next week.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

The S&P 500 fell 0.4% this week after rising 0.3% to 2,372.60 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.5% this week after advancing 44.79 points, or 0.2%, to 20,902.98 today. The Nasdaq Composite dipped 0.2% this week after gaining 0.4% to 5,861.73 today.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite snapped six-week winning streaks, while the Dow ended a four-week winning streak.

Wellington Shields’ Frank Gretz notes that the “market is supposed to be anticipatory.” He explains:

Opinions follow price … memories do as well. If higher prices alone were not enough, the news always seems to improve as prices move higher. After all, the media always needs to explain the higher prices, and the good therefore becomes the emphasis. For example, there’s little talk of the all-but-certain pending rate hike. Since the election the market has had a remarkable run, one built more on policy hope than policy reality. This complaint is met with the retort that it has only been 50 days, or whatever. Fair enough, but the point remains. Then, too, the market is supposed to do this, it’s supposed to be anticipatory. Investors are getting this, and hence, what has been persistent strength. Interestingly, investors will begin to believe they always got it – no one was really worried about a possible trade war, and so on. The psychologist Baruch Fischhoff called this “creeping determinism,” the idea that unexpected events turn into the expected. In other words, we will remember being more bullish in November than we were.

Top Performing Stocks To Own For 2018

Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) posted a new 52-week high last Wednesday and the stock gained about 2.7% to close the week at $135.72. Apple stock has gained about 17.2% for the year to date and remains the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s best performing stock this year.

Much of the past week’s gain came as the result of speculation about what the company will be including in the iPhone 8. The most talked about new features are a glass sandwich design, borderless OLED screen, wireless charging and augmented-reality technology.

Among other stories related to the company last week, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK-A) reported that it now owns about 57.4 million shares of Apple stock, up from 15.23 million at the end of the third quarter of 2016.

The company’s market cap is now just over $712 billion and the distance to becoming the world’s first $1 trillion company is within reach. Between last May, when the stock dropped to a 52-week low, and last week, the shares have added 52%. Another charge like that and a $1 trillion market cap is a cinch.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Buy Right Now

Recommendation

I recommend buying Churchill Downs Incorporated’s (NASDAQ:CHDN) equity on dips in price. The company has a strong and experienced management team, which has consistently maintained its focus on creating shareholder value. The recommended trade is purchasing the equity and potentially the 4.75% Bonds maturing 2028 trading at a YTM of ~5.25%.

Thesis Overview

CHDN’s management is experienced and focused on running its operating businesses well and creating shareholder value. All three core lines of business continue to show constant growth, with management continuing to invest in future growth and opportunistic M&A. The company’s debt was recently refinanced in December 2017, lowering interest rates and lengthening maturities. Lastly, CHDN is well positioned for potential iGaming (real money online sports gambling), should the upcoming US Supreme Court ruling on the PASPA law (Professional & Amateur Sports) overturn the current restrictions.

Key Risks to Thesis

The main risk to the thesis above is that the US Supreme Court upholds the PASPA law and iGaming does not become legal in the United States. While the company’s current businesses will continue to perform well, the stock may trade down on the news or be revalued closer to the multiples of other regional casino operators.

    To that end, we asked three top Motley Fool contributors to each pick a stock they think you would be wise to purchase and hold for the next 50 years. Read on to see why they like Corning (NYSE:GLW), Accenture (NYSE:ACN), and A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS).

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) will release fourth-quarter 2016 results on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017. With shares up more than 44% over the past year, including a modest 4% climb since last quarter’s solid report in October, you can be sure the market will be listening closely to what the glass technologist says. What should investors watch for this time around?

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    GLW, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 1.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 10.6%. Weakness in the company’s revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.

     

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Back on December 5th of 2013, we added Corning (GLW) to our list around $16 and change. The stock ended up moving to a high of just over $25 per share early last year for roughly a 50% gain. Well, the stock has since come off again trading all the way back down to under $16 per share back in August of last year, before finding its way back up above $18 just yesterday. The context here is two-fold. First, the valuation metrics for GLW are once again suggesting another undervalued opportunity for a Company that is the clear leader in specialty glass and ceramics.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate CORNING INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Each operates slightly differently, but at the end of the day, each provides very honest, tight tracking of the S&P 500. The VOO is simply the cheapest at just 0.05% in expenses, which accounts for most of the slight performance edge over its ETF brethren.

    The S&P 500 is one of the world's most widely followed equity indexes. There are over $7.8 trillion in global assets benchmarked to the index, according to ProShares data. The world's two largest ETFs, SPY and the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (NYSE: IVV), track the S&P 500. Those ETFs have about $395 billion in combined assets under management and are the only two ETFs trading in the U.S. with over $100 billion in assets.

    Passive ETFs continuing to top active rivals is not all about the performance of U.S. stocks this year. Yes, the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent year-to-date, but that is not a jaw-dropping performance. Much of the ongoing out-performance of passive ETFs over active counterparts this year is attributable to fees. Just look at the rock-bottom fees on ETFs such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSE: SPY) and the iShares S&P 500 Core ETF (NYSE: IVV).

Ripple&s;s XRP token extended its losses today, dropping to less than $1.75.

The digital currency fell to as little as $1.72, according to&a;nbsp;&l;span&g;&l;a href=&q;https://coinmarketcap.com/&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;CoinMarketCap&l;/a&g;.&a;nbsp;&l;/span&g;

This recent low represented a&a;nbsp;55% decline from the all-time high of $3.84 reached last week, additional CoinMarketCap figures show.

&l;span&g;&l;/span&g;

The digital asset suffered this pullback after experiencing an astronomical gain where it climbed more than 30,000% in 2017.

XRP prices experienced further gains early this year, approaching $4 as the digital currency benefited from significant hype.
