Best Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019

Conventional wisdom suggests that investors should find safe stocks to buy. Penny stocks and potential “triple-baggers” might be more exciting and a big win might provide a better story, but experts will tell you the smart play is to benefit from compounding returns in safe, stable stocks.

That general strategy is similar to that followed by Warren Buffett with Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B), for instance. Buffett looks for “forever stocks,” with a portfolio that ranges from key parts of the industrial supply chain to consumer brands like The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO) and Dairy Queen. Investors following that type of strategy — again, so the conventional wisdom goes — should benefit from lower volatility and larger returns over time.

Of course, there are a couple of problems with this advice.

The first is that choosing safe stocks to buy is much harder than Buffett himself has made it look. General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) was considered a “widows and orphans” stock for decades — and it went bankrupt in 2008. Investors in 1985 could have argued Dow Jones component companies Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:KODK), GM, and Sears Holdings Corp (NASDAQ:SHLD) were among the safest plays in the market.

Best Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: Noble Energy Inc.(NBL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    However, the region has been growing so fast that oil producers are on pace to exceed its pipeline capacity in a matter of months. While several new lines are under development, drillers have already started slowing down. ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) and Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL) were among several producers that recently announced plans to reallocate some of their drilling activities to other regions. In ConocoPhillips’ case, it plans to drill more wells in the Eagle Ford shale, while Noble Energy will likely allocate more capital to Eagle Ford and the DJ Basin.

    Fueling that forecast is the company’s ability to expand its midstream footprint to support the growth of its customers, including its parent Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL).

Best Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: Rockwell Collins, Inc.(COL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    First, CEO Greg Hayes has promised investors he was looking at strategic options that could be taken after the acquisition of Rockwell Collins (NYSE:COL). As discussed previously, investors need to make a multitude of risk/reward calculations, across all four of its segments, before feeling fully comfortable buying the stock.

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    Meanwhile, UTAS reported yet another strong quarter of growth in commercial aftermarket, and with the forthcoming addition of Rockwell Collins (NYSE:COL), UTAS is well positioned to benefit from a buoyant commercial aerospace market.

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    Third Point’s first-quarter letter to investors outlined the position in United Technologies and the rationale behind Loeb’s belief that breaking up the company is the best way forward for investors. For reference, the multi-industrial company comprises four segments: Otis elevators; UTC climate controls & security (CCS), specializing in air-conditioning, refrigeration and security; UTC aerospace systems (UTAS); and Pratt & Whitney, maker of aircraft engines. Loeb’s key points are as follows:

    The company’s one-size-fits-all approach has led to a “well-documented history of poor management execution.” A spinoff would create value in the manner of recent precedents in the industrial sector, and allow for more-focused management of the newly created companies. The failure of the market to value United Technologies appropriately to its intrinsic value reflects how investors value aerospace companies (with a long-term perspective, which accepts near-term losses on multiyear programs) and multi-industrial companies (by using multiples of next year’s earnings). Shareholders are best served by splitting up the company into three separate ones, specifically Otis; CCS; and an aerospace company built from UTAS, Pratt & Whitney, and the impending acquisition of Rockwell Collins (NYSE:COL).

    To this, I would add that there’s a bewildering number of investment decisions you need to make before buying United Technologies stock right now. For example, you might be worried about growth in construction in China (Otis), or long-term prospects for aerospace suppliers against margin pressure from Boeing and Airbus (UTAS, Rockwell Collins) trying to cut costs or compete directly, or even margin pressure on air-conditioning products (CCS) from rising raw-material costs. All of which give you a good reason not to buy the stock.
