Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019

Russ Kaplan is a leading money manager with a value-oriented and contrarian approach to very long-term investing; here’s a look at his top growth idea for the coming year.

One of the few places of value in this market is the home building stocks and our Top Pick for growth-oriented investors is D. R. Horton (DHI), which is a home building stock.

D.R. Horton is more than just a homebuilder, however. Horton is involved in all aspects of the realty area. It also owns lots of property and is into title insurance.

Yes, mortgage rates have gone up, but that is already reflected in the price of the stock, which has fallen from $38 to a recent price is the $28 range. I can see it going back to $38 in the near future.

With a price/earnings ratio of 12, it is very undervalued from the market average, which is currently around 22.

There really is a D. R. Horton and he owns 7% of the company. This is not a stock for those looking for income. It only pays a little over 1%.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The Trump administration is considering a 25% tariff on up to $200 billion in Chinese goods. This is the latest escalation of an ongoing trade spat that has ripped through the heartland of the United States and threatens to bring the market rally to a screeching halt. On Tuesday, soybean prices rallied more than $0.28 in Chicago on speculation that the Trump administration is looking to resolve trade relations with China. Following the White House’s announcement, soybeans gave back a majority of those gains as trade fears rattled the agriculture industry. Finally, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) is on the verge of becoming the first $1 trillion company by market capitalization. The firm was close to topping $200 per share on Wednesday morning after a terrific earnings report after the bell yesterday.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, X, CPB
    Will today be the reckoning for Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA)? Today, the company will report earnings for the second quarter of 2018.

    Monday was a big day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks moving generally higher to start the week. Strong performance in the energy market once again led stocks higher, including a nice gain in oil prices to move above the $72-per-barrel mark. The small-cap Russell 2000 Index hit another record high, but some companies reported news that prevented them from participating in the broader-based rally. Fifth Third Bancorp (NASDAQ:FITB), Qudian (NYSE:QD), and U.S. Steel (NYSE:X) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Best Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now: NextEra Energy Partners, LP(NEP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP) operates and manages energy assets that have a cleaner profile, such as natural gas pipelines and wind and solar power-generating facilities. The other common denominator is that the company secured long-term contracts for the power these assets produce as well as the capacity of its pipelines, which provides it with relatively steady cash flow. That gives it money with which to pay a lucrative distribution that currently yields 4%.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Markets are cheering news that the supposed trade war between the United States and China is “on hold,” according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Mnuchin and U.S. President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, announced that both nations have reached an agreement, one that established a framework to help address ongoing trade imbalances between the two countries. The prices of crude oil is in focus after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro won reelection over the weekend. The election featured a very low turnout and a very large outcry that the vote was rigged. Maduro has a 75% disapproval rating and has been the face of the OPEC member’s widespread mismanagement and economic collapse. Prior to the election, a member of the Trump administration said that the United States would not recognize the authenticity of the election. The United States is considering additional sanctions on Venezuela. Today is a major day for mergers and acquisition activity. Today, Blackstone Group LP(NYSE: BX) announced plans to purchase U.S. hotel operator LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE: LHO) for a whopping $3.7 billion.

Best Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now: Caterpillar, Inc.(CAT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    Worsening trade relations between the U.S. and China drew some attention at the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) meeting in Washington last week, and could come into focus again as key U.S. industrial companies report in the days ahead. In particular, investors might want to listen to earnings conference calls from Caterpillar (CAT), which reports before the market open on Tuesday; and from Boeing (BA), which reports early Wednesday. Few U.S. companies have a bigger stake in China than BA, and CAT has a growing presence in the country. It’s worth noting, however, that since the U.S. and China started talking tariffs, a number of analysts have said fears about the effect on BA’s business might be overblown.

  • [By ]

    U.S. stocks finished sharply lower on Tuesday as earnings from Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) , despite rising, disappointed investors as the heavy machinery maker said material cost increases this year likely will come in above estimates because of higher steel prices.

  • [By ]

    Bulls were stampeded on Tuesday.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average  lost 424 points, or 1.74%, the S&P 500  handed over 1.34% and the Nasdaq Composite   shed 1.68%. For some investors, the losses might have come as a surprise amid solid first-quarter earnings reports from bellwether companies like Caterpillar (CAT) , United Technologies (UTX) , Coca-Cola (KO) and 3M (MMM) . You need to be at TheStreet’s May 5 boot-camp for investors. Learn more here.

    But, it was cautious comments by Caterpillar execs on the demand outlook for the rest of 2018 during an earnings call that sent the bears out of hibernation. Not helping market sentiment were 10-year yields topping the 3% mark for the first time in more than four years. 

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    But much of that response may simply have been reflexive the so-called knee-jerk reaction to anything that threatens to raise prices. Companies that consume a lot of steel, like Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) and Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE), have not commented yet.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) was last seen down 1.9% at $146.31, but that’s down over 15% from its recent high of $173.24. Caterpillar has the same sort of worries as Boeing when it comes to overseas orders potentially going to competitors.

  • [By ]

    We all know how comments from Caterpillar’s (CAT) chief financial officer on an earnings call about a peak in demand sent shivers through the market. Boeing’s (BA) robust earnings report was largely ignored. And then there is the case of tech darling Nvidia (NVDA) . 

Best China Stocks To Own For 2018

As the year comes to a close, it’s fitting that the week in solar was dominated by the kind of large, macro trends that seem to move and shake the solar industry every few months. But unlike 2015, when we had Nevada upend net metering in the final hours of the year, most of the news from the solar industry is positive at the end of 2016. There are still some challenges looking forward, but policy seems to be favoring solar energy in the long term.

China resets renewable energy prices

One of the biggest drivers of solar growth in 2016 was China’s feed-in tariff rates. A feed-in tariff drove an estimated 13 GW of solar installations in the first half of the year before being reset in the second half. Now feed-in tariff rates will fall another 19% for 2017, and China has lowered its 2020 installation target from 150 GW to a minimum of 105 GW.

Top executives at United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS) took home outrageously high compensation last year, even though the parcel carrier missed many of its performance targets, like revenue growth and total shareholder returns.

In fact, UPS said in its March filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) its three-year performance missed targets for revenue growth, operating return on invested capital, and total shareholder returns.

Even worse, the world’s largest package delivery company also missed some of its financial targets for 2016. For example, UPS’s net income fell 29% last year after it struggled to handle the rising costs of e-commerce.

Yet UPS CEO David Abney earned a surprising 21% more in total compensation in 2016 than the prior year, according to the new SEC filings. Abney took in a whopping $13.7 million, including a salary of $1.1 million (a 6.3% increase), stock awards of $10.2 million (a 22% increase), and long-term awards valued at $860,000.

Value of Real Estate Obscured by Poor Disclosure

Casey’s General Stores (NASDAQ:CASY) operates 1,931 stores across the US. Despite the size of its real estate portfolio, disclosure on its real estate has been poor. Which only serves to muddy the perception of the firm’s value. The chart above, essentially encapsulates all the information the firm provides.

Methodology

I used loopnet’s sales comps for gas stations and convenience stores by state to arrive at an average selling price per square foot. The website provides sales data for commercial real estate that can be sliced by sub-category, convenience stores, and by state and city. The figure below, provides a snapshot of some of the data the website provides. I gathered a large sample size for each state to ensure that it was representative of the population.

Top 5 Value Stocks For 2018: Mitsubishi Corporation (MSBHY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Automotive is moving well, up 14% y/y driven by HD Radio tech. The latter is included in an A list of important models, including Tesla Model 3, the Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY) Mirage and the Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) Rogue. Their connected radio solution is also coming along nicely.

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, machinery, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

Legendary investor and CEO of&a;nbsp;Berkshire Hathaway&a;nbsp;Warren Buffett has been a long-time bear on Bitcoin, using strong messages to tell investors that they will lose a great deal of money by sticking with the digital currency. Like &a;ldquo;poison squared,&a;rdquo; an expression he used to describe Bitcoin in interview with&a;nbsp;&l;a href=&q;https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/05/warren-buffett-says-bitcoin-is-probably-rat-poison-squared.html&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g; CNBC&a;nbsp;&l;/a&g;last Saturday.

That was certainly enough to stall the digital currency&a;rsquo;s recent rally towards the $10,000-mark, and sent it in the opposite direction towards the $9,000-mark. Other major cryptocurrencies followed suit.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019: Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (ICEIF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    In hindsight, June’s news from Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) should come as no surprise. In May the organization announced it was buying Catch Star Studios LLC for the purpose of creating its own sports-related television shows that would be aired by broadcast as well as online. Now it’s begun creating that television content, following in the footsteps of much bigger original-content creators such as Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).

    What might comes as a surprise to existing and potential ICEIF shareholders, however, is how big highly-focused original television programming is now that the lines between the internet and cable television have not only been crossed, but erased.

    May wasn’t just a pivotal month for Intelligent Content Enterprises because it’s when the acquisition of Catch Star Studios was put into motion. May was also the month Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) reported some stunning results of a new study about digital video-viewing habits and preferences. The key findings? Regular viewers of original digital video programming in the U.S. have grown from 45 million in 2013 to 63 million, and the advertisements displayed via a digital broadcast of such programming are liked and remembered by far more viewers than they are when part of a conventional cable television broadcast.

    Said another way as far as advertisers are concerned, the world wide web is the new cable television. That’s not to say cable television has become irrelevant. Savvy content makers are now doing both, while also making a point of creating their own customized content now that the fight for viewers has gotten brutal.

    Take Netflix as an example. It has a pair of smash hits with its self-produced ‘Orange is the New Black’ and ‘House of Cards.’ Amazon.com is getting into the game too, with its ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ recently being awarded two Golden Globes.

    This same paradigm shift h

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    In May of this year, at the annual Collision Conference, advertising and media executives of the world’s biggest traffic-oriented (and ad-supported) websites asked themselves a crucial question: How do we save online advertising from itself?

    The question itself is a reflection of the new reality of the internet…. it’s become so big, so full, so cross-border, so competitive, and so promotional that it’s become an unwieldy mess. Twenty years ago, click-through rates were greater than 40%. Now they’re a mere 0.6%, as consumers (1) are saturated by marketing messages, and (2) have largely learned that ads don’t lead them to a product or service they care about. Digital advertising simply isn’t what it used to be.

    While the answer to the question “how can digital advertising be saved?” is a complex one, a company called Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) addresses at least one aspect of the question, by doing what the web’s capitalists have failed to figure out how to do well. What’s that? ICEIF understands that an ad has to be relevant to a user no matter where that user is, and that to see an ad at all, a user has to be able to read the web’s content in his or her native language.

    Intelligent Content Enterprises, through its Digital Widget Factory website www.digiwidgy.com, has tackled the aforementioned issue head-on, creating a rich website with a built-in translation tool which displays advertisements and offers unique to that reader’s location, and delivers that marketing message in his or her native language.

    It may sound like a lot of work at first glance. But, it’s worth it.

    Digital industry research outfit Common Sense Advisory reports that of the more than 3 billion internet users worldwide, approximately 73% — 2.2 Billion people — are browsing the web in a language other than English. That’s quite a disparity from the fact that more than 50% of the content on the web is na

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    If there was any doubt that the future of video as a digital medium was here to stay, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) just wiped that doubt away. It’s going to open up its video-sharing platform to anyone — not just vetted creators with huge followings — and split ad revenue with them. In so doing, it now offers a similar deal (though a more generous deal) that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and YouTube also offers video creators.

    It’s just a microcosm of the shape of things to come… or the shape of things as they already are. Last year was the first year internet users spent more time watching videos online than they did engaged in social media, averaging more one hour and sixteen minutes of video viewing per day.

    Perhaps more important, the amount of ad revenue the likes of Facebook, and now Twitter, generate via online video is small, but growing very fast. The total ad spend allocated for digital video has jumped from 2.4% in 2013 to 4.4% today, and that’s expected to double again in two years.

    Yet, for as much revenue as online video can drive and as big as it’s gotten, the ad-display technology remains alarmingly inelegant, even or veteran players like YouTube and Facebook. This clunky display of ads — and Twitter will likely keep it clunky, at least initially — increasingly makes a company called Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) not just well-positioned, but a potential acquisition target.

    Intelligent Content Enterprises has developed a tool called Clix Video(tm), which the company described as a way to enable “digital and mobile viewers to instantaneously connect to web and mobile sites by clicking on custom interactive tags within the video broadcasts to make social media connections, to review extra and exclusive content and make online and mobile purchases directly via the video broadcast providing a richer, deeper consumer experience related to the video content. “

    In English, it just means Clix Vide

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Either low-income Americans became rich this Black Friday, or Wal-Mart’s (NYSE:WMT) marketers do not know what they are doing.

For years, $133,653 Cartier watches and expensive jewelry were sold in upper scale stores, where high income Americans prefer to shop on Black Friday. 

This year, Cartier watches are being sold on the Walmart.com site.

But who will buy them? Will high income Americans trade the upscale store for Wal-Mart’s site? That sounds very unlikely to me. Shopping for luxury items is usually more about the experience of shopping rather than about price.

What about Wal-Mart’s low-income shoppers? That’s unlikely, too, as they cannot afford items that sell at a hefty multiple of their annual income. Besides, some of Wal-Mart’s shoppers do not even use credit cards, so how can they purchase $133,653 watches on-line?

For more than three decades, Wal-Mart ruled the US retailing industry. Its large stores and everyday low prices were too much for smaller neighborhood stores and supermarkets. Result? They went out of business shortly after Wal-Mart invaded their turf.
