    Income investors are always on the lookout for investments that will produce ample income, and it’s hard to find companies that do better right now than business development companies. BDCs like Main Street Capital (NYSE:MAIN) and Apollo Investment (NASDAQ:AINV) make investments in different types of businesses, often providing capital through either debt or equity financing. Because BDCs often elect the favorable tax status of regulated investment companies, they have to distribute the vast majority of their taxable income to their shareholders, and that produces the impressive yields that both Main Street and Apollo give their investors.

The firm purchased 8,727 shares of the business services provider’s stock, valued at approximately $201,000.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Interpublic Group of Companies (NYSE:IPG) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Interpublic is benefitting from higher organic revenue growth. The company's  digital capabilities, diversified business model and geographic reach offer a distinctive competitive advantage. It continues to look for strategic investments and buyouts to expand in high-growth regions and key world markets. Interpublic’s consistent efforts to reward its shareholders with dividend and share repurchases are appreciable. Shares of the company have outperformed its industry in the past year. However, the company’s global presence makes it vulnerable to foreign currency fluctuations. Its cash position is affected by seasonality in business.  Client concentration can be a major hindrance to Interpublic’s business. A debt-laden balance sheet is another concern.”

    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 Morning Global 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.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2019

By Gene Munster of Loup Ventures

Tesla released Q2 2018 production and delivery numbers, confirming information leaked over the weekend that they did indeed achieve their goal of 5,000 Model 3s per week, producing 5,031 Model 3s and 1,913 S and X vehicles. These numbers are in line with Musk’s target and slightly ahead of our previous prediction of a run rate between 4,300 and 4,900. Other key takeaways include:

Model 3 production for Q2 was 28,578, nearly 3x higher than Q1 production of 9,766. The company did not steal from Peter to pay Paul, producing 24,761 S and X vehicles in Q2 compared to 24,728 S and X vehicles in Q1. We’re encouraged that this number remained stable during increased efforts to reach Model 3 goals. Tesla reiterated their confidence in reaching both positive GAAP net income and cash flow in Q3 and Q4. Adding some conservatism to Musk’s predictions, we expect the company to be cash flow positive in Q4 through a combination of a higher Model 3 run rate and selling EV credits. After presumably reaching the 5,000 per week target in a burst-build, a short period of pouring resources and manpower into focused production, the question becomes one of sustainability. Tesla commented that they are on track to reach 6,000 Model 3s per week by late August. We expect a temporary step-down in production related to retooling general assembly and we anticipate Model 3 production to exit Q3 at 6,000 per week. Tesla reported that the number of net Model 3 reservations at the end of Q2 stood at roughly 420,000 (on top of the 28,386 delivered to date). We see this as a positive; we had expected the reservation list to shrink meaningfully given the production delays. Now, we expect reservations to increase as more owners become evangelists for the product and cars become available for test drives in Tesla stores.

This strong demand comes into question when considering the effect of the tax credit provided to EV buyers in the US. When Tesla delivers its 200,000th vehicle, this $7,500 tax credit will begin to phase out. The number of vehicles in transit (11,166 Model 3s and 3,892 S and X), along with accelerated deliveries in Canada, could mean Tesla was delaying deliveries in order to game the tax credit. This points to the fact that they should deliver the 200,000th vehicle early in Q3. If that mark is hit early in Q3, the tax credit phase-out will look like this:

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2019: Shake Shack, Inc.(SHAK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Shake Shack Inc. (NYSE: SHAK) was started with a Hold rating and assigned a $65 price target (versus a $61.75 close) at Stifel.

    Southern Co. (NYSE: SO) was raised to Neutral from Underperform at Merrill Lynch. Its price objective was maintained as $46 in the call (versus a $44.12 close).

    In this segment of the Motley Fool Money podcast, host Chris Hill is joined by Fool analysts Jason Moser, Andy Cross, and Ron Gross to consider the progress of Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK), which is making headway in its multiyear expansion plan. First-quarter revenue was up 29%, and more importantly, same-Shack sales were up 1.7%, and share prices shot upward in response. Even so, at least one Fool says the stock is still not for him.

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK) shares soared after the company breezed past estimates in its first-quarter earnings report. The better-burger chain said revenue increased 29.1% to $99.1 million, ahead of expectations of $96.3 million, while adjusted earnings per share increased from $0.10 to $0.15, crushing the consensus of $0.08. The company also made some upward revisions to its full-year guidance.

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    Kline: Earlier this year, I moderated a panel at the Electronic Transactions Association. One of the people on my panel was the tech guy at Shake Shack (NYSE: SHAK). I would argue that Shake Shack is a tech company. They’re not a pioneer, they’re really more looking at what other people are doing and how they can adopt it. But the days where any company that interacts with people, unless your model is that you’re folksy and you don’t have technology, you have to have a technology component. The question is going to be how far it goes. 

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK) has one of the most attractive sales growth outlooks in the business right now. Wall Street expects the “better burger” chain to boost revenue by 25% in 2018 to mark just a small slowdown from last year’s 34% spike. Shake Shack is aiming to double its store base between now and 2020 on the way to eventually reaching 450 locations across the U.S., up from 100 today.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2019: International Game Technology(IGT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    The other area to look at is service providers who build the betting infrastructure for casinos. IGT (NYSE:IGT) is powering MGM’s sports betting already, and Scientific Games (NASDAQ:SGMS) announced an agreement with Caesars to use its sports betting platform in New Jersey and Mississippi. They’re in the early phases of building out sport betting businesses, and will likely be providers for most early casino sportsbooks. These companies have a lot of potential upside if sports betting takes off as casinos hope. 

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    One of the reason suppliers like IGT (NYSE:IGT) and Scientific Games are reacting positively is because they’ll likely provide the betting infrastructure casinos use. IGT powers MGM’s playMGM app that takes sports bets in Nevada today. It could easily scale that technology nationwide. Scientific Games sees its OpenBet product suite providing similar solutions to its customers.

Hot Performing Stocks To Own For 2019

Just as Americans rush to load up on chocolates for Valentine’s Day, the global cocoa glut is finally starting to ebb.

Cocoa futures in New York have climbed almost 9 percent in 2018, making them one of the year’s best-performing commodities. As signs of tighter supplies mount, hedge funds have switched to betting on an extended rally, after holding negative wagers for the past two months.

#lazy-img-323766623:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

This year’s gains for cocoa are a stark reversal from the last two years, when futures plunged more than 40 percent amid a global glut. The lower prices took a toll on growers, who cut spending on farm maintenance. That’s now showing up in crop quality as yields begin to drop in Ecuador, South America’s largest producer and a supplier of high-grade beans to companies such as Lindt & Spruengli AG. Indonesia, which used to be the world’s third-largest grower, is expected to become a net-importer this year as production declines and demand climbs. Recent dryness is also threatening output in parts of West Africa, which accounts more than two-thirds of global supplies.

    Plenty Of Upside
    After the scale of the tax threat (or lack thereof) was made clear, buyers began to cautiously tiptoe back in. But there is still more upside in this sector than I have seen in the past few years. Take MMP, which is trading around $60 per share. Analysts have a consensus price target of $77 which would imply appreciation of more than 28%. Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP) is looking at upside of more than 50%.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While ONEOK is one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in the country, one thing others have that it lacks is an export terminal. An analyst on the call pointed this out and asked how aggressively the company was pursuing exports given that rivals Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) recently signed joint ventures (JVs) to build new export terminals. In Enterprise’s case, it signed a JV to construct an ethylene export facility to move the key petrochemical to market centers. Meanwhile, Energy Transfer secured a JV to build an ethane export facility. Both projects should start up in 2020 and supply thesecompanies with steady cash flow for years via long-term, fee-based contracts.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) is among the highest yielding companies in the MLP space at nearly 13%. That’s mainly due to the market’s fears that the company’s distribution isn’t sustainable because of its weaker financial metrics. While those numbers have improved in recent quarters, they still have a way to go.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

Shares of Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD) have come a long way since I originally presented the idea as “undervalued with catalysts” at the end of 2016. In total I’ve written four update pieces since and the stock has continued to be a decent performer.

Figure 1: FOLD daily advanced chart (Source: Finviz Elite) (Disclosure: Contains affiliate link)

In premarket today, the stock is in the red by a bit over 2% on news that the company sold 19,354,839 shares at a price point of $15.50 per share. Gross proceeds are expected to total around $300 million. Underwriter option is for an additional 2,903,225 shares should it be exercised. Dilution of around 13% or so appears acceptable, and it’s worth noting that JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs are serving as joint lead book-running managers while Cowen and Leerink Partners are acting as co-booking managers (Bank of America Merrill Lynch as lead co-manager). This type of investment banking participation bodes well, as does pricing which is at only a slight discount to the current share price. Keep in mind that the deal was originally for $250 million but then it was upsized to $300 million, another bullish sign.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Penny stocks those stocks that trade for low prices, often with share prices of less than a dollar per share are dangerous. Period. Indeed, with a few exceptions, investors should steer clear of these uber-cheap stocks, which typically trade over-the-counter and not on a major exchange.

Call them penny stocks, microcaps or OTC stocks; by any name, theyre bad news. Promises of quick and easy riches are easier to fall for when an investment can be made with so little money up front. An investor might think, “How risky could it be?”

Plenty. Per the Securities and Exchange Commission: Academic studies find that OTC stocks tend to be highly illiquid; are frequent targets of alleged market manipulation; generate negative and volatile investment returns on average; and rarely grow into a large company or transition to listing on a stock exchange.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: Amgen Inc.(AMGN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    All three are market-cap weighted — that is, the larger the company is, the more it impacts the overall performance of the index/fund. In the Nasdaq, for instance, the impact of any move in Apple, Microsoft or Amazon — which are weighted 12%, nearly 9% and nearly 8%, respectively — would be much more significant than the index impact of a much smaller position such as Amgen (Nasdaq: AMGN), with less than 2% of the index assets allocated.

    After the Senate scored the votes on Tuesday to review a plan for repealing or repealing and replacing what’s come to be known as Obamacare, we saw a mixed-bag reaction from healthcare stocks. Even some of the bulletproof ones, like Amgen Inc. (Nasdaq: AMGN), closed lower from their opening highs.

  • [By Johanna Bennett]

    Shares of Amgen (AMGN) led the drop in the S&P 500 today falling almost 6.4% to close at $168.61 after the drug maker unveiledlong-awaited data on its anti-cholesterol drug Repatha.

    Can shares of Amgen rebound from todays selloff?

    Yes, is the answer from RBC Capital Management analyst Michael Yee. He argues that the drug makers share price can grind back up if access to Repatha increases over the next few quarters. Earlier today, Amgen released data from an outcome study that missed expectations, leading some analyst to predict that health plans will continue to restrict access to the drug.

    As Yee writes:

    A number of key developments midday at the ACC conference that should shed increased confidence that Repatha reimbursement and utilization will continue to increase over time driving a new growth driver for AMGN and increased confidence in a new product cycle. If reimbursement does start to open up over next few quarters (tracking IMS scripts and other datapoints) and AMGN manages their execution on quarters/guidance – stock should recover off today’s overreaction reflecting high expectations

    It hasn’t been an easy time for investors inRegeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) recently…and today’s price action is likely to reinforce the sense of whiplash they must be feeling.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    What do I mean? Regeneron’s dropped 14% during the last three months, the result of a patent suit with Amgen(AMGN) over its anti-cholesterol drug Praluent, which a judge had set it wouldn’t be able to sell in the U.S.Then last night, there was finally good news: Ajudge ordered a stay, which would allow Regeneron to sell Praluent, and resulted in a 2% pop in its shares last night after the market close. But then Regeneron reported earnings, and while profits of $3.04 cents a share metthe Street consensus, Regeneron missed on sales and offered disappointing guidance. That caused Regeneron shares to sink 2.1% in pre-open trading.

    Fast forward to this afternoon, and and now they’re up nearly 3%. Credit Suisse analyst Alethia Young and team explain why the injunction outweighs the earnings:

    Company issued Eylea guidance for 2017- they guided single digit
    percentage growth over 2016. Consensus had been for 12% growth and we
    had modeled 11% growth.

    EPS for 4Q came in at $3.04 in line with $3.04 consensus. Since the company has already provided OpEx guidance for 2017 and the Eylea 4Q estimate ahead of today we think earnings are less of a focus.

    We are curious where in the single digit percentage growth for Eylea the company means- 9% YoY growth wouldnt be too far from consensus vs. 3%
    growth…

    As we wrote last night, we would expect shares to trade up due to the injunction stay. We would expect shares to be up 2-4% from the injunction stay, but the effect might be muted somewhat by the Eylea guide. We would guess shares might be up 1 to 3% today.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The Interpublic Group of Companies Inc. (NYSE: IPG) dropped about 4% Wednesday to post a new 52-week low of $21.28 after closing Tuesday at $22.16. The 52-week high is $25.71. Volume reached nearly 10 million shares traded, more than double the daily average of around 3.8 million. Tuesday’s weak earnings report continued to weigh on the share price.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Interpublic is our income play in our media universe. While other stocks we cover offer a higher yield than IPG’s 2.1%, the company’s double digit EPS growth projections for 2016 (following an estimated 18% in 2015) will also likely be a driver of outperformance for the year. While results can be somewhat volatile for IPG, we would point to record new business win backlog this year, which improves our conviction that the better than average recent organic revenue growth trends will continue next year. At 18x our 2016 EPS estimate, we find IPG shares attractive at current levels for another projected year of healthy double digit total returns.

Loading the player… What is ‘Internal Rate Of Return – IRR’

Internal rate of return (IRR) is a metric used in capital budgeting measuring the profitability of potential investments. Internal rate of return is a discount rate that makes the net present value (NPV) of all cash flows from a particular project equal to zero. IRR calculations rely on the same formula as NPV does.

The following is the formula for calculating NPV:

where:

Ct= net cash inflow during the period t

Co= total initial investment costs

r = discount rate, and

t = number of time periods

To calculate IRR using the formula, one would set NPV equal to zero and solve for the discount rate r, which is here the IRR. Because of the nature of the formula, however, IRR cannot be calculated analytically, and must instead be calculated either through trial-and-error or using software programmed to calculate IRR.

    Even so, thanks to its checkered past, many companies such as Visa (NYSE: V  ) andMasterCard (NYSE: MA  ) have been late to the party.However, astute companies, such asDeutsche Bank (NYSE: DB  ) have been active in the market since the mid 1970s.

  • [By Alex Planes]

    It was from these humble beginnings that Visa (NYSE: V  ) was born. BankAmericard became an independent corporation in 1970 and later changed its name to Visa in 1976 as a way to broaden its appeal internationally. By this point the Master Charge had been established as a competing credit card network, and it had actually grown larger than the former BankAmericard: In the first quarter of 1976, BankAmericard/Visa claimed 31.8 million cardholders and $2.3 billion in sales volume, while the Master Charge had 37.4 million cardholders and processed $2.9 billion in sales. Master Charge, of course, is the forerunner to MasterCard (NYSE: MA  ) , but it hasn’t maintained its early lead over Visa. In 2012, Visa’s total U.S. purchase volume clocked in at $981 billion compared to $534 billion for MasterCard, and Visa’s 278 million American cardholders far outweigh MasterCard’s 180 million American cardholders.

    The analysts upgraded IPG from “Underperform” to “Hold” and now see shares reaching $17.20, up from the previous target of $11. This new price target suggests a slight upside to the stock’s Tuesday closing price of $16.92.

    Jefferies analyst David Reynolds commented, “There’s a lot to be said for IPG, robust earnings growth profile, plays well into a ‘growth’ ad spend market and perhaps it remains the key beneficiary of all things POG. Yet, issues around North American profitability and developing economy scale continue to weigh. Richly valued and thus only c.2% upside to the ‘old normal’ and demonstrably bullish 16.7x forward earnings, we think warrants a HOLD. We set our new PT at US$17.20, 16.7x FY14 earnings.”

    Interpublic Group shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Wednesday. The stock is up 53.54% year-to-date.
