Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Peter Graham]

    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.

    My preferred fund here is Vanguard Extended Duration Treasury ETF (NYSE: EDV), which owns a basket of long-term, zero-coupon bonds. It’s better-known, larger, and, most important, cheaper than its competitor PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon U.S. Treasury Index Exchange-Traded Fund (NYSE: ZROZ). Both are poised to rally if deflation hits and the stock market falls. But EDV is cheaper, at only 0.07% expense ratio, compared with ZROZ’s 0.15%, and so it’s the one that makes the cut.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 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.

In fact, the athletic apparel and footwear giant’s business is healthy enough that shareholders can feel comfortable that this investment will hold up over the long term.

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Under Armour(NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA) has gone from stock market darling to pariah in just a few short months. Two consecutive weak earnings reports, the end its 26-quarter streak of 20% revenue growth, and management’s decision to pull back from its 2018 guidance of $7.5 billion revenue have combined to push the stock down 50% since October.

Top 10 Stocks To Invest In 2019

Source: Stock Photo

After a solid 2nd quarter, where it doubled year-over-year earnings from $1.7 billion to $3.4 billion, Exxon Mobil (XOM) will struggle to approach those results in the current quarter because of falling oil prices.

The good news for Exxon is its refining unit led earnings growth for the 2nd quarter, generating $1.4 billion in earnings, followed by its upstream business, which produced $1.2 billion in earnings. It’ll struggle to approach those numbers this quarter.

Chemical on the other hand underperformed, with earnings coming in at $985 million, down $232 million from last year in the same reporting period. That was attributed to ” higher turnaround activities, lower volumes, and decreased margins.”

    Yet Shopify isn’t the only business with compelling arguments in its favor. We asked three of our Motley Fool investors for growth stocks that they like that have the potential to post returns that would put Shopify’s own to shame. They chose gaming specialist Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI), electric car maker Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), and streaming device maker Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU).

  • [By John Ballard]

    In the last few years, Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) has been focusing on the esports market as a way to reduce its dependency on game sales by building a sizable revenue stream from advertising, ticket sales, merchandise, and sponsorships. Overwatch League (which launched in January of this year) is the most promising of its esports ventures to date, with management making the bet that it will deliver a large enough audience to attract big bucks from advertisers.

  • [By John Ballard]

    If you compare Activision Blizzard’s (NASDAQ:ATVI) balance sheet with its peers’, one thing might jump out at you — the Overwatch maker is saddled with a lot of debt. Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA) and Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) have higher net cash balances even though Activision generates more revenue and free cash flow than they do, and has been doing so for years and years.

    Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) and Vectren (NYSE:VVC) are both utilities companies, but which is the superior investment? We will compare the two companies based on the strength of their profitability, dividends, risk, institutional ownership, valuation, analyst recommendations and earnings.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Sempra Energy’s (NYSE:SRE) acquisition of Oncor was a bit of a coup on Wall Street, as it was able to outbid Berkshire Hathaway for the Texas utility. The victory didn’t come cheap, though, as Sempra had to cough up $9.5 billion and take on quite a bit of debt in the process of completing the deal. Even though the company sees immense potential in the purchase and the growth opportunities that come with it, shares of Sempra have been mostly flat for the past year.

    5 reasons to buy IBM
    IBM posted its second straight quarter of annual sales growth after almost six years of declines. Its revenue rose 5% annually to $19.07 billion, beating estimates by $390 million. Its non-GAAP earnings also grew 4% to $2.45, topping expectations by $0.06. IBM’s closely watched “strategic imperatives” (SI) revenue — which comes from its higher-growth cloud, social, mobile, security, and analytics businesses — rose 12% annually (10% on a constant currency basis) to $37.7 billion over the past 12 months. That accounted for 47% of IBM’s revenue, compared to42% a year earlier. This tells us that Big Blue’s shift from legacy businesses to higher-growth ones is gradually paying off.IBM also noted, without disclosing an exact figure, that its security revenues also rose 60% annually during the quarter. IBM’s total cloud revenue over the past 12 months rose 22% annually (20% in constant currency) to $17.7 billion. For the quarter, its higher-growth cloud-as-a-service revenue rose 25% annually (20% in constant currency) to $10.7 billion, compared to 20% reported growth in the fourth quarter. Three of IBM’s four computing business segments (Cognitive Solutions, Global Business Services, and Technology Services & Cloud Platforms) posted positive annual sales growth and topped analyst estimates. IBM’s stock remains fairly cheap at less than 11 times this year’s earnings, and it pays a forward dividend yield of 3.8%. That low valuation and high yield should limit its downside potential.
    5 reasons to sell IBM
    IBM’s total sales were buoyed by a weak dollar. On a constant currency basis, its revenue actually stayed flat year over year during the quarter. On a constant currency basis, its Global Business Services and Technology Solutions & Cloud Platforms revenue would both have declined 1% annually. Its Cognitive Solutions revenue rose 6% in dollars, but just 2% on a constant currency basis. The

On Tuesday, shares of Snap (SNAP) hit a new public trading low, falling nearly 9% to $15.47 after a big downgrade from Morgan Stanley. With the research firm cutting its price target from $28 to $16, Snap shares easily lost hold of their $17 IPO price that they had been struggling to defend. Unfortunately, for investors, the situation could get much worse before it gets better.

One of the reasons for the downgrade was weak Daily Active User (“DAU”) data the firm retrieved from a third party source. If you remember back around the time of Snap’s IPO, I cited slowing DAU growth as a main reason for avoiding, or even going short, shares of the company.

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. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood.

The S&P 500 rose 1.5% this week after advancing 0.2% to 2,351.16 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.7% this week after ticking up 4.28 points to 20,624.05. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.8% this week after today.

There were all sorts of reasons for the market to drop this week: Fed chief Janet Yellen was more hawkish than expected when she testified to Congress this week, while President Donald J. Trump was busy defending himself, rather than proposing business friendly legislation.

But the market refused to take a loss for an answer. Today, for instance, the Dow had been down as much as 87.16 points, before rallying back, while the blue chip benchmark rallied back from a 55.03 decline. In fact, that’s been the pattern all year in the S&P 500, explains the folks at Bespoke Investment Group:
