Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

A few weeks ago, we published an article that characterized Gilead (GILD) as a “Value Trap.” That article was a follow-up to an earlier article which used our work on Gilead as an example of how a solid conceptual framework could help investors make better decisions. Both of these articles were based on a 16-page valuation report on Gilead we published to our members in September, 2016.

We caught a lot of flack for the recent characterization of Gilead as a value trap, but our opinion was redeemed on February 7th, when the stock fell heavily after a disappointing earnings announcement.

In today’s article, we’ll take another look at the valuation process – the most important weapon in an investor’s arsenal – in a continuation of the Gilead example. We would invite new readers to read through each of the earlier articles as well, to get a picture of the overall process!

Investing Anecdotes are Dangerous!

What interested us in September 2016, when we made our original analysis of Gilead, was the noise among the value investing community about what a deal Gilead was because the stock was trading at such a low Price-to-Earnings (P/E) ratio (See our article Three Things You Should Know About Gilead).

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019: Crestwood Equity Partners LP(CEQP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    First, the company and its joint venture (JV) partner Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) approved the expansion of their Jackalope gathering and processing business in the Powder River Basin. The expansion projects will supply Williams with some incremental cash flow as they come on line over the next year, while giving the smaller Crestwood some additional fuel to help grow its earnings at a 15% compound annual rate through 2020. 

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Luzich Partners LLC raised its position in shares of Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE:CEQP) by 5.2% during the first quarter, according to its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The fund owned 581,601 shares of the pipeline company’s stock after acquiring an additional 28,640 shares during the period. Crestwood Equity Partners makes up about 14.6% of Luzich Partners LLC’s investment portfolio, making the stock its 2nd largest position. Luzich Partners LLC’s holdings in Crestwood Equity Partners were worth $14,889,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) was by far the best-performing master limited partnership (MLP) in 2018. While the average MLP tracked by the Alerian MLP ETF delivered a negative total return last year, Crestwood’s total return was an exceptional 17%. Driving that outperformance was a noticeable recovery in the company’s financial results.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    For example, relatively small peer Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE:CEQP) ended the month up 13%. ONEOK (NYSE:OKE), which is structured as a regular corporation and not a limited partnership, rose an impressive 19%. And Canadian midstream owner Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) jumped 20% (like ONEOK, Pembina is not structured as a limited partnership). The midstream sector across the board had a pretty decent month.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That’s why I own several high-yield stocks. However, of that group, three currently stand out as having the greatest probability of delivering market-beating returns from here: Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), Brookfield Property Partners (NASDAQ:BPY), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Because they’re my highest conviction ideas, I’d buy any one of them right now.

Best Safest Stocks To Own For 2019

When your firm is known for its dividend safety and is primarily held by retirees and other income-seekers, the worst thing you can do is cut your dividend. Pipelines were supposed to be safe tollways that produced plenty of cash flows. So, when the oil bust hit Kinder Morgan Inc (NYSE:KMI) hard and the firm was forced to cut its dividend back in 2015, investors pretty much abandoned Kinder Morgan stock.

Kinder Morgan stock has pretty much languished since that fateful day. But it might not be languishing anymore.

Moves to right the ship at Kinder Morgan have begun to work and KMI has finally given long-suffering shareholders what they wanted all the time — a big return to dividend growth. With its latest mega-sized increase, Kinder Morgan stock is once again on top of the dividend pile. For income-seekers, this could mean that shares could finally be a big-time buy.

Needed Cut at Kinder Morgan

It’s no secret that the oil slump hurt all manner of energy stocks. And while the pipeline players were supposed to be the safest of the bunch, it turns out they were hit just as hard. Or harder, as was the case at Kinder Morgan.

    Werner Enterprises (Nasdaq: WERN) competes in the full-truckload (FTL) segment of the industry where drivers deliver entire truck-loads between two points, rather than making many stops to consolidate partial loads as in the LTL segment. This could mean that the company has relatively more to gain from autonomous trucking since highway driving is a larger portion of total drive time.

4 Things to Tell Older Clients About Their Life Insurance

Lawmakers who sped a tax bill through the U.S. House last week may have handed a few more goodies to Wall Street’s wealthiest than they realize.

Investors in billion-dollar hedge funds might be able to take advantage of a new, lower tax rate touted as a break for small businesses. Private equity fund managers might be able to sidestep a new tax on their earnings. And a combination of proposed changes might allow the children and grandchildren of the very wealthy to avoid income taxes in perpetuity.

These are some of the quirks that tax experts have spotted in the bill passed by the House on Nov. 16, just two weeks after it was introduced. Whether they were intentional or accidental, it will be up to congressional tax writers to keep or revise them before a final bill makes it to President Donald Trump’s desk — assuming both chambers can work out a compromise. Senate leaders plan to vote on their own version of tax legislation by the end of this month.
