Top Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now: New York Times Company (NYT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    The New York Times Co. (NYSE:NYT) just wrapped up 2018 with a strong finish, evidenced by its recently released fourth-quarter and full-year results. Fourth-quarter revenue surged past analysts’ estimates to $503 million, up 3.8% year over year despite an extra week in the year-ago quarter. This momentum was fueled by more net new digital subscriptions than in any period since the quarter following the 2016 election.

  • [By Alison Southwick and Robert Brokamp, CFP]

    I have to say that whenever I hear a study like this, I’m a bit of a mixed mind. On the one hand, many people are in these situations through no fault of their own. When The New York Times (NYSE: NYT) wrote about this, they talked about a guy who was a carpenter. He became disabled when some equipment fell on him. Then he got Parkinson’s. He wife got cancer. And he was getting health insurance from his union but then they dropped him. Like there’s nothing that guy could have done about that and for someone like him, that’s what bankruptcy is for. Like it’s his last resort.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    That’s especially true considering those publishers have been making progress transitioning to a digital world. For example, The New York Times Company (NYSE:NYT) said last week that paid digital-only subscriptions soared 27% last year to 3.4 million, representing the bulk of the 4.3 million total subscriptions that the company has. News Corp. (NASDAQ:NWSA) likewise reported a 23% jump in WSJ’s average daily digital subscribers to 1.7 million in the fourth quarter. The Washington Post does not disclose subscriber figures, as it is personally owned by Jeff Bezos, but it reportedly hit 1 million paid digital-only subscriptions in late 2017.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

It’s the most profitable time of the year, and our latest list of best stocks to buy now gives you what you need to make the most of it.

December is historically the best-performing month for stocks. Going back to 1950, the S&P 500 has gained an average of 1.54% in the final month of the year, better than in any other month, and has finished December higher than it started 75% of the time.

What’s the reason? Holiday cheer could have something to do with it. Also, we know retailers make their biggest sales during the holiday shopping season. Plus, the end of the calendar year tends to spur on money managers to make a final push to drive up their annual return.

    Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU): Chinese tech and search engine company Baidu released its Little Fish smart speaker in early 2017. This January, Baidu released three new smart speakers, including a smaller version of the original Little Fish; a combined smart lamp and smart speaker called the Sengled; and the popIn Aladdin, which is a speaker, a light, and a projector. Although Alibaba added “sight” (a feature that enables the device to use a smartphone’s camera for certain functions) to its smart speaker in March, it doesn’t have a lamp or projector feature yet. 

  • [By Keith Noonan]

    When iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ) had its market debut in March after being spun off from Chinese search-engine giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), the stock stumbled out of the gate. It lost roughly 14% of its value on the first day of trading and briefly derailed some of the excitement surrounding the new streaming and multimedia offshoot. That didn’t last too long, however.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Vena: Right. iQiyi, when they started developing this original content, keep in mind that they were still owned by Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), which spun them off earlier this year. Now, Baidu has a lot of similarities to Google. They are the major search engine in China. They have a lot of data. They’ve been at the forefront of artificial intelligence. So, one of the things that iQiyi said in their IPO filing with the SEC is that they view that data and their ability to analyze that data using artificial intelligence as one of their competitive advantages. So, they have used that to generate shows that Chinese consumers just really love.

    Wall Street had another good session on Tuesday, with favorable earnings reports from some of the nation’s most successful technology companies helping to lift major benchmarks by 1% or more. Investors haven’t forgotten about some of the potential pitfalls that could derail the recovery, including both geopolitical and macroeconomic concerns. Yet traders seem to want to see the market test its all-time highs before deciding whether the correction could turn into a full-fledged bear market reversal. Some individual stocks, however, missed out on the good times. GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Apellis Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:APLS), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2018

The market is filled with stocks. Ever since bond yields went to zero as the Federal Reserve tried to rescue the economy from the mortgage crisis, it has forced people to go further out on the risk curve in order to get the income they had been used to getting from bonds.

Risk is the foremost concern of my stock advisory newsletter, The Liberty Portfolio. Most investors unknowingly take on far, far too much risk. Things are all rosy now with the market 30% overvalued, but trust me, when the correction comes, investors will suddenly learn about risk the hard way.

So as normally “conservative” investors take on higher levels of risk by investing in securities mistaken perceived as “safe,” or “blue chip,” just to squeeze out those 4% yields, they may be missing some overlooked high-dividend stocks that carry less risk.
