Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2019

Biotech has consistently been home to some of the top growth stocks in the entire market. And even though biotech hasn’t been at its best by a long shot this year, this particular sub-sector has still managed to produce some of the best-performing stocks at large.

Over the past year, for example, gene therapy company uniQure N.V. (NASDAQ:QURE) and endocrine specialist Viking Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VKTX) both saw their shares skyrocket against the backdrop of a fairly weak overall market for biotech. Despite their rapid appreciation, though, these two stocks might still be incredible bargains for investors comfortable with high levels of risk. Here’s why.

Gene therapy has reinvented itself

After decades of disappointing results, gene therapy has truly come of age in the past two years. And the market has definitely taken notice. Gene therapy stocks, after all, have been jumping higher this year, and this trend is showing no signs of slowing down. That’s one key reason the small-cap biotech uniQure N.V. might be a particularly great buy right now.

    Sunoco (NYSE:SUN) released its quarterly earnings results on Wednesday. The oil and gas company reported ($3.74) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.57 by ($4.31), Briefing.com reports. Sunoco had a return on equity of 17.06% and a net margin of 1.27%. The firm had revenue of $3.75 billion for the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $3 billion. During the same quarter in the previous year, the business posted ($0.22) EPS. The firm’s revenue for the quarter was up 33.5% compared to the same quarter last year.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    There was a similar trend for smaller midstream player Phillips 66 Partners LP (NYSE:PSXP). It was down 19% in 2018 and rose 16% in January. But the trend didn’t hold for Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN), which distributes gasoline. This limited partnership was off by 4% in 2018, two percentage points less than the broader market, and up 12% in January. Cheniere Energy Partners LP (NYSEMKT:CQP) and Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG) were even further from the pack, up 12% and 11%, respectively, in January after posting gains of 21% and roughly 10%, respectively, in 2018.

    Around this time last year, Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN) announced a transformative divestment. The sale of its extensive retail filling station network to convenience store specialist 7-Eleven was going to give management the cash it needed to clean up its balance sheet and provide it with a much more stable revenue source. One would have assumed that when the company made this transaction, Wall Street would reward the stock with a higher valuation. That hasn’t been the case, though, as Sunoco’s stock is still languishing with a sky-high distribution yield north of 12%.

    Three high-yield dividend stocks that seem to be in danger of a dividend reduction are Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP), Enbridge Energy Partners (NYSE:EEP), and Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN). Investors are better off steering clear of this trio and considering safer options instead.

    Before the bell, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reported its second GDP estimate for the fourth quarter. U.S. economic growth came in at 2.6%, a figure that topped consensus expectations. Q2 and Q3 2018 GDP growth came in at fabulous levels – 4.2% and 3.4%, respectively. However, investors predicted the reading would come in lower due to the government shutdown during the fourth quarter. In other economic news, the Department of Labor this morning reported weekly jobless claims at 225,000. That figure is slightly higher than the 220,000 expected by economists.

    Diversified 3D printing company 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) is slated to report its first-quarter 2018 earnings after the market closes on Wednesday, May 2. As with last quarter, main rival Stratasys is scheduled to report on the same day, though before the market opens. 

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    Shares of the 3D printing company were up 5.9% in after-hours trading on Thursday.

The stock has gained 48.6% for the one-year period through Thursday’s regular trading session, versus the S&P 500’s 4.7% return.

    Consequently, we may already be seeing this weakness manifest itself in some alcohol stocks.

    Your Top 3 Cannabis Stories for June 28
    Maryland voted for a pro-marijuana candidate for governor this week. Ben Jealous won the democratic nomination, and if elected, he would use cannabis tax revenue to fund pre-K education throughout the state. Investors are speculating that Canadian brewer Molson Coors Brewing Co. (NYSE: TAP) may be getting into the marijuana business. Bloomberg reported on June 25 that the beverage giant is considering a move into cannabis-infused beverages in Canada. Though the report hasn’t been confirmed by Molson, a company presentation on June 6 said that it was exploring the opportunities and risks of entering the market. Justin Staples, a former NFL linebacker, is starting a new career in the cannabis industry. He was hired as the Director of Business Development for Revolution Enterprises, according to a June 27 Forbes “I’m joining the Revolution Team at a true industry inflection point because my values align with Revolution’s success in providing Illinois patients cannabis medicine as an alternative to addictive opioids,” Staples said in the Forbes report. When the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement expires in 2020, some believe the league will update its policies and allow medical marijuana for pain management.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019: Blueprint Medicines Corporation(BPMC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    After reporting second-quarter financial results and updating investors on the progress it’s making in developing cancer therapies targeting specific genetic mutations, Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ:BPMC) saw its shares rocket 17% yesterday. News that management is initiating new trials and potentially filing its first drug for FDA approval in 2019 helped spark investors’ interest, but that wasn’t the only thing management said about its future. Read on to learn more about this clinical-stage biotech stock and whether it’s right for your portfolio.

    The big thing to watch this week will be how investors view Loxo’s results in comparison to results presented earlier this year by Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ:BPMC). Blueprint’s BLU-667 also targets RET-fusions and at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in April, Blueprint revealed a preliminary overall response rate of 50% for NSCLC and 40% for MTC. It’s bad science to compare unrelated trials, so investors might be best off viewing Loxo and Blueprint’s data as evidence that they’re both working on a winning approach.

  • [By ]

    Blueprint Medicines (Nasdaq: BPMC), similarly to Loxo, is working on cancer medications that can target different mutations, and target them with precision. No wonder the stock rallied more than 14% this year, and that’s on top of the share-price more than doubling in the last three years. By 2020, BPMC plans to have two products already on the market, with four more pending. This company could certainly become a target for a larger peer, especially if its 2020 plan remains on track.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019: Pacific Gas & Electric Co.(PCG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Many major utilities are now ramping up investments in cost-saving, margin-boosting energy efficiency programs. In fact, there’s a strong correlation between the most ambitious renewable energy investment strategies and energy efficiency programs. Some utilities have a lot of catching up to do.  

    Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) has saved 13,000 GWh of electricity consumption across its network over the years, including 9,000 GWh since 2005. The company has an ambitious plan to retire coal-fired power plants and build new wind and solar power capacity, which, when coupled with energy efficiency, could allow it to generate 45% of its electricity from renewables in 2027. Additionally, fuel-related expenses would drop from 47% of capital investments in 2010 to just 28% in 2027. That would free up more cash flow for dividends or growth projects — or both. PG&E (NYSE:PCG) recently filed a plan to retire an aging fossil fuel power plant with distributed solar and energy efficiency programs, as discussed on a recent quarterly conference call with investors. The utility also offers some of the most ambitious customer rebates in the country, with up to $5,500 per household. Southern Company (NYSE:SO) has saved 2,700 GWh of electricity consumption across its network since 2000. By 2020, it will have invested $1 billion total in energy efficiency programs, although that lags well behind more ambitious peers. Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) was ranked second to last among all utilities in the country in energy efficiency by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy. That leaves plenty of room for improvement. A recent report suggests it’s possible to reduce new home energy consumption in Virginia (the company’s home state) by 60%, saving the utility billions in capital investments in the next decade by avoiding the need to build new facilities. Those efforts could also save customers $1.7 billion, but the utility’s most recent plan does not prioritize energy efficien

Shares of Caterpillar (CAT ) opened slightly higher on Monday, just one day before the construction and mining equipment giant is scheduled to report its first quarter earnings. This might signal that investors are confident about Caterpillar ahead of the release of its Q1 financial results. Let’s dive into some of the details to see if they should be.

Caterpillar is considered a bellwether for the global economy, maybe even more so than the likes of tech titans such as Amazon (AMZN ) , Netflix (NFLX ) , or Facebook (FB ) . Therefore, investors will want to pay close attention to the company’s Q1 results.

CAT stock is up over 4% in the last four weeks amid an overall market downturn. But concerns about a possible Trump tariff related setback could perhaps show up in the near-term.

With that said, investors will want to know if Caterpillar’s current estimates and fundamentals make it look like an enticing stock to consider buying ahead of its Q1 report.

Related UNG Does Being An Oil Bear Make You A Nat Gas Bull? What's Next For Nat Gas? Citi Sees Chance For 'Higher Peaks'

Following the arrests of 11 princes and four ministers in Saudi Arabia, oil commanded most of the headlines in the energy patch Monday. However, some traders aren't overlooking natural gas. The United States Natural Gas Fund (NYSE: UNG) jumped 4.7 percent on volume that was more than double the daily average.

Monday's pop trims UNG's year-to-date decline to about 30 percent, a tumble that underscores the status of natural gas as one of this year's worst-performing commodities. Some traders are betting natural gas's woes are over, at least for the near-term, and they may be correct as UNG has rallied about 14 percent of its recently set 52-week low.

Top China Stocks To Invest In 2018

(Published Feb. 23 by Bob Ciura)

Shares of consumer products company Nu Skin Enterprises (NYSE:NUS) crashed 11% after the company missed analyst expectations on both sales and earnings per share for the fourth quarter.

Nu Skin has struggled mightily over the past three years. In January 2014, the company was hit with an investigation by Chinese regulatory authorities into the firm’s business practices.

But it’s not all bad news – Nu Skin’s earnings are growing, and the stock has a 3% dividend yield.

Plus, Nu Skin raised its dividend by 1.4% after providing its earnings report.

This makes 16 years in a row of annual dividend hikes. Nu Skin is a group of 272 stocks with 10+ years of consecutive dividend increases, known as the Dividend Achievers.

You can see the full Dividend Achievers List here.

Nu Skin has come a long way since the investigation, and has made meaningful strides in turning around the China business.

    Warren Buffett’s penchant for picking great stocks for Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) portfolio makes his quarterly stock picks must-know news for every long-term investor. Luckily, Buffett is required to file a 13F report with the Securities and Exchange Commission every quarter showing what he’s been buying, and that makes following in his footsteps easier. Last quarter, his top buys were U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB),Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), andTeva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE:TEVA). Should you buy these stocks for your portfolio, too?

    Buffett also more than doubled his stake in generic drugmaker Teva Pharmaceuticals (NYSE: TEVA) to 40 million shares. This was a new investment in the fourth quarter and could still be a good entry point for new investors.

Top China Stocks To Invest In 2018: USG Corporation(USG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

Berkshire told Bloomberg it intends to vote its shares against USG’s board members who are up for re-election at this year’s annual meeting, a clear message that Buffett is ready to cash in, even if USG’s management and board are not.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

Protect American jobs by getting tough on China.

That’s the underlying idea behind President-elect Donald Trump’s threat of a 45% tariff against China as a ploy to bring jobs back to America.

Before pursuing that strategy, however, Trump might want to check out what happened when his predecessor tried that.

President Obama slapped a stiff 35% tariff on Chinese tires in 2009 after American companies complained about unfair competition. They said China was flooding America with tires at low prices making it tough for U.S. companies to compete. The tire tariff gradually waned, and finally ended in 2012.

The tariff saved 1,200 U.S. tire jobs, which had been in sharp decline. And U.S. tire production rose after a major decline.

“Over a thousand Americans are working today because we stopped a surge in Chinese tires,” Obama said in his 2012 State of the Union address.

But a study from the Peterson Institute of International Economics found that the tariffs cost Americans in many other ways.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019: Insys Therapeutics, Inc.(INSY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Speights]

    The Intelligent Investor was written in 1949, but it’s still as relevant nearly 70 years later as it was back then. Benjamin Graham was right about how crazy the market can be at times. I think the experiences of two very different biotech stocks this week — Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) and Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY)– prove the point.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    What aboutInsys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY)? The biotech’s lead product is an opioid drug, but it also has an approved cannabinoid drug on the market for treatinganorexia in people with AIDS who have lost weight, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Insyshas a couple of experimental pain drugs in its pipeline — but none of them are cannabinoids. The company’s lead cannabinoid candidate targets childhood absence epilepsy, infantile spasms, genetic disorder Prader-Willi syndrome — but not pain.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Applied Optoelectronics, Inc.(AAOI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting triple-digit losses even as broader benchmarks had much smaller moves. Market participants largely focused their attention on the inflation front, as March consumer price index numbers showed a 0.2% rise in the core rate excluding food and energy. Year-over-year price changes have accelerated, seemingly giving the Federal Reserve more justification to continue raising interest rates. Yet even though many stocks generally react unfavorably to inflation fears, there were some big gainers that had good news. Hilton Worldwide Holdings (NYSE:HLT), Pretium (NYSE:PVG), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAOI) reported its fourth quarter results after the markets closed on Wednesday. The company posted $0.89 in earnings per share (EPS) on $79.9 million, which compares to consensus estimates that were calling for $0.82 in EPS on $86.2 million in revenue. Heres what analysts were saying after the fact:

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) issued an update on its second quarter earnings guidance on Tuesday morning. The company provided earnings per share (EPS) guidance of $0.39-$0.52 for the period, compared to the Thomson Reuters consensus estimate of $0.46. The company issued revenue guidance of $75-$81 million, compared to the consensus revenue estimate of $77.48 million.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Notably, Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) was held up as a likely takeover target before the ink had dried on the Oclaro/Lumentum deal, but the stock started to fall a couple of weeks later as no such bids materialized. Applied Optoelectronics shares fell 10.3% lower in March, but the damage was repaired in early April when analyst firm Rosenblatt said that the company’s largest data center customers are ramping up their computing infrastructures very quickly at the moment.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2018

Protect American jobs by getting tough on China.

That’s the underlying idea behind President-elect Donald Trump’s threat of a 45% tariff against China as a ploy to bring jobs back to America.

Before pursuing that strategy, however, Trump might want to check out what happened when his predecessor tried that.

President Obama slapped a stiff 35% tariff on Chinese tires in 2009 after American companies complained about unfair competition. They said China was flooding America with tires at low prices making it tough for U.S. companies to compete. The tire tariff gradually waned, and finally ended in 2012.

The tariff saved 1,200 U.S. tire jobs, which had been in sharp decline. And U.S. tire production rose after a major decline.

“Over a thousand Americans are working today because we stopped a surge in Chinese tires,” Obama said in his 2012 State of the Union address.

But a study from the Peterson Institute of International Economics found that the tariffs cost Americans in many other ways.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.
    Finally, investors will continue to monitor ongoing developments in Washington around the presidency of Donald Trump. The White House has asked a federal judge to block prosecutors from reviewing any files seized from his lawyer’s office during a raid by the FBI last week. The agency seized a trove of documents from lawyer Michael Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into a payment of hush money. The spat between the White House and the FBI continues a day after former FBI Director James Comey called Trump “morally unfit to be president.”

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate.
