Hot Value Stocks To Own For 2019

How much do you have in savings? In 2015, the GAO reported that 70% of households in the 55-64 age bracket have less than $100,000 saved. But Robyn Bri, an 18-year old who just graduated from high school in Marin, CA, is on track to beat that average big time. She’s saved over $85,000 by working part-time jobs, starting at age eight.

Robyn Bri

How did she do it? Well, Bri must have been an extraordinary child. At the age of eight, she realized that her parents were struggling to provide for Bri and her two siblings, so she started earning her own money by cat sitting and dog walking for neighbors. As she got a little older, Bri started babysitting and eventually got a server job at a local café. “Earning money made me realize the value of it,” Bri says. “It would last longer than if it was just given to me.”

    Monday was a generally down day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks giving up early-morning gains to finish modestly lower. Most market participants focused the bulk of their attention on deteriorating financial conditions in Turkey, with signs that the plunge in the value of the nation’s currency could have impacts across the globe. For instance, Argentina had to boost a key interest rate by 5 percentage points to 45% in order to defend its own currency, and in the U.S., financial stocks were generally under some pressure as investors tried to assess possible exposure if the Turkish crisis extends outward. Even with those difficulties, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN), Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD), and Antares Pharma (NASDAQ:ATRS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    The pace of consolidations of Chinese rechargeable battery cell companies is accelerating. We made an assertion in our previous report that, with a few exceptions (CATL, BYD), most Chinese names would be consolidated due to the change of subsidy policy by Beijing, and that the industry is likely to become more oligopolistic. It appears that this trend is becoming more pronounced. According to SNE Research, the combined market share of CATL and BYD in the Chinese EV battery market has grown from 43.9% in 2017 to 63.6% in 1H18. China’s subsidies are mostly for high- performance rechargeable batteries, and the NEV credit system, which was implemented this year, is designed to give more credits to companies that use high-performance rechargeable batteries. As such, high-end rechargeable batteries are likely to drive demand, but realistically only CATL and BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) have the capacity to make these batteries in China.

    Current subsidies in China were reduced by 20% in 2017 and will be reduced by 40% in 2019 and 100% by 2021. China’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) credit system was announced on September 28, 2017, and will begin in 2019 with 10% of credits (12% in 2020) required from new energy vehicles (NEVs). That translates to ~4-5% of EV sales as market share for 2019. We also are expecting an announcement at some stage as to when China will ban ICE vehicles, noting BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) Chairman Wang thinks by 2030. Others think it will be 2035.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (CLF), formerly Cliffs Natural Resources Inc, has had some trouble in its recent past but has a very promising future. By 2020, Cliffs will be rid of all its non-performing assets and will have three solid EBITDA generating streams, its Core U.S. Iron Ore business, its hot briquetted iron (HBI) plant in Toledo, Ohio, and its DR-grade pellets produced at its Northshore plant. While Cliffs has been a tough stock to hold over the years, the business has fundamentally changed, and its future looks much different than its past. Cliffs is still being valued like the old Cliffs, even though the company is now much less risky, and is undervalued compared to its future EBITDA power, cash flow generating ability, and asset value.

Business

Cleveland-Cliffs is the largest independent iron ore mining company in the United States, with a history of operations dating back to 1847. Under its core U.S. Iron Ore business, Cliffs operates mines and pellet plants in Michigan and Minnesota, supplying iron ore pellets to the North American steel industry. The mines Cliffs currently owns and operates are the Tilden mine and the indefinitely idled Empire mine on the Marquette Iron range in Michigan’s upper peninsula, the Hibbing mine (23% ownership) and the United Taconite mine in Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron range, and the Northshore mine in Northeastern Minnesota.

    Wall Street suffered a big drop on Tuesday, with the Dowdown as much as 600 points during the session before rebounding somewhat. The bond market continued to be a source of consternation for many investors, with rates rising through the 3% level for the 10-year Treasury, marking an important psychological milestone in what some predict could be a multiyear bear market for bonds. Earnings reports also brought downward pressure on certain companies, despite what was overall been a generally favorable season thus far. Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII), Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE:FCX), and Waters (NYSE:WAT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By ]

    Attention misguided investors: not every tech company has the same troubles as social media beast Facebook (FB) . And for those opportunistic investors our there, such a dislocation in markets right now between broader tech business models and Facebook’s could spell many lucrative buying opportunities. Research out of Goldman Sachs (GS) shows that 25 tech stocks in particular that have seen large correlations with Facebook’s equity returns since March 15 and have under-performed the S&P 500 . The list of laggards is a whose who of former high-flying tech names: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) , KLA-Tenor (KLAC) , Take-Two Interactive (TTWO) , Alphabet (GOOGL) , Western Digital (WDC) , Electronic Arts (EA) , and Nvidia (NVDA) . 

    Not too sure where Mr. Market’s head is at, but it’s unlikely Facebook’s troubles will hurt sales of video-games for Electronic Arts this coming holiday season. Nvidia is still holding the pole position in the booming market for AI and autonomous driving chips, and doesn’t put suspect quizzes on a website.

    My timing, however, isn’t always so good, and I sometimes get in too early. But owning a great dividend-paying company at a fair price is better than owning a bad company at any price. Which is why I’m happy to have bought U.S. utility giant The Southern Company (NYSE:SO) and healthcare real estate investment trust (REIT) Ventas, Inc. (NYSE:VTR). And I’ll be just as happy if they fall further from here.
