Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019

Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor, has been outspoken about his disdain for cryptocurrencies.  

Bitcoin is “probably rat poison squared,” remarked Buffett before the Berkshire Hathaway meeting on Saturday. 

Buffett has never been a fan of any cryptocurrency. “If you buy something like bitcoin or some cryptocurrency, you don’t really have anything that has produced anything. You’re just hoping the next guy pays more,” Buffett said in an April interview with Yahoo Finance. “You aren’t investing when you do that. You’re speculating. There’s nothing wrong with it. If you wanna gamble somebody else will come along and pay more money tomorrow, that’s one kind of game. That is not investing.”

Last November, Buffett made similar remarks. “You can’t value Bitcoin because it’s not a value-producing asset,” he said at the time.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Own Right Now

General Motors (NYSE:GM) has gone through a lot over the past 10 years. After suffering during the recession of 2008 and eventually filing for bankruptcy protection, GM was able to get its financial house in order and take advantage of one of the most prosperous periods in auto industry history during the early and mid-2010s. Competitive victories over some of its most important rivals followed, and General Motors looks a lot healthier financially than it has throughout much of its history.

More recently, investors haven’t been entirely sure what’s in GM’s immediate future. The auto industry is notoriously cyclical, and after several years of record sales, some wonder whether General Motors is due for a cooldown. Yet that negative sentiment has been around for a while now without industry conditions deteriorating to nearly the extent that some had expected, and a closer look is necessary to see whether GM is a good buy for investors right now.

    Wednesday was a strong day on Wall Street, and major benchmarks posted solid gains of around 1%. Market participants were generally happy about oil prices moving back into the $70s, hoping for a rebound in hard-hit areas of the country that had taken advantage of the triple-digit oil prices of the early 2010s by dramatically ramping up production of shale plays and similar opportunities. Yet even with the generally favorable mood, some stocks weren’t able to join the rally.

    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.

In those tweets and in talks with his cabinet, Trump has been critical of the pharmaceutical sector and its pricing of prescription drugs, famously saying on at least two occasions that companies are “getting away with murder.”

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2018

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

    It is hard to fully wrap your hands around the potential market opportunity that Accenture will have in the years ahead but I believe that the opportunities are almost endless (dramatic, I know). For example, consider these forecasts that Forbes detailed in its “2017 Roundup Of Internet Of Things Forecast” report:

    According to Bain, “B2B IoT segments will generate more than $300B annually by 2020, including about $85B in the industrial sector”. According to PwC, “$6T will be spent on IoT solutions between 2015 and 2020”. According to Accenture, “Industrial Internet Of Things could add $14.2T to the economy by 2020”. According to Statista, “The global Internet of Things (IoT) market is projected to grow from $2.99T in 2014 to $8.9T in 2020, attaining a 19.92% Compound Annual Growth Rate (OTCPK:CAGR). Industrial manufacturing is predicted to increase from $472B in 2014 to $890B in global IoT spending. Healthcare and life sciences are projected to increase from $520B in 2014 to $1.335T in 2020, attaining a 17% CAGR”.

    The forecasts compiled by Forbes are all over the place but one thing is consistent, that is, the growth potential for IoT (and the sub-industries) is real. Connected things are expected to experience significant growth and I believe that it is hard to deny that digital will play a key role in the future growth of the global economy.

    Shares of Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE:KGC) fell 14.3% today after the company announced first-quarter 2018 results. While the company delivered top-line growth compared to the year-ago period thanks to higher sales volumes and selling prices, it didn’t trickle down to the bottom line. Instead, net income actually decreased 21% compared to the performance in the first quarter of 2017. It’s the same sticking point Wall Street had with full-year 2017 results.

Patriot One is a Canadian-based technology company that has developed an advanced concealed weapons detection system that delivers real-time warnings to keep potential attackers at bay and to keep the general public safe and secure. “Using radar and machine-learning algorithms that interpret the signal that comes back, every metallic object they’re carrying will resonate with a very distinct frequency and the system has been trained to register the signature of different types of weapons,” said Martin Cronin, CEO of Patriot One Technologies.

The cutting-edge technology created by Patriot One Technologies (OTCQB: PTOTF) (TSE: PAT.V) is available for use in airports, police stations and other government offices. It’s also available for use in stadiums, concert halls, night clubs and shopping malls. Anywhere that large numbers of people gather has the potential for installation of Patriot One’s system. Fortunately for any public or private entity that puts this concealed weapons detection system to work, there are no privacy law concerns “No image is retained. There are no privacy concerns whatsoever with respect to it. There’s no data that’s being retained, it’s simply detecting items on an individual,” said John Gillies, retired assistant director of CSIS, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino has implemented a trial of Patriot One’s revolutionary concealed weapons detection technology in order to evaluate integration capabilities with existing in-house security systems.

While there are a good number of new ships hitting waters in 2019 and beyond, the consumer demand is such that more ships are warranted. Risks: surging oil prices (it takes a lot of fuel to run a cruise ship) and a recession (meaning somewhat empty new ships).

Hot Growth Stocks To Buy Right Now

1. Market mayhem: Main Street is feeling good right now — maybe a little too good if you ask Wall Street.

After years of stagnant wages, American workers finally got a legit raise in January. Wages grew at the fastest pace since 2009 — a strong signal of a healthy economy and a tight jobs market.

But there was no celebration on Wall Street for the clothing makers, miners and auto workers who scored wage gains. On the contrary, Friday’s robust jobs report sent shudders through the stock market. Fears of inflation, higher rates and lower corporate profits sent the Dow plummeting 666 points, or 2.5% — its darkest day since the Brexit turmoil in June 2016.

“We’re at an inflection point, one that we haven’t seen in quite some time, where good news for Main Street is not necessarily good news for Wall Street,” said Peter Kenny, an independent market strategist and founder of Kenny’s Commentary.

For years, Wall Street has feasted on a “goldilocks” environment of so-so growth and mysteriously low inflation. This backdrop was perfect for the stock market because it meant the Federal Reserve would keep its foot on the easy-money pedal in a quest to engineer inflation. Corporate profits could boom because they didn’t have to pay workers more. And interest rates were ridiculously low, making stocks look like a bargain.

Top 10 China Stocks To Buy For 2018

Walmart is revamping its global strategy.

On Wednesday, Walmart announced it would pay around $16 billion for a majority stake in Flipkart, India’s largest online retailer.

“India is a priority market for us,” chief executive Doug McMillon said on a call with Wall Street analysts. “We’re taking action to position the company for the future.”

The move comes weeks after Walmart sold control of British supermarket chain Asda.

By pulling back in a saturated UK grocery environment and marshaling its resources in India, Walmart is adopting a more surgical approach than the “bull in a China shop” mentality it has taken in the past, said Paula Rosenblum, managing partner at Retail Systems Research.

“Walmart sees a long, protracted battle in the European market,” Matt Sargent, a retail expert at consulting firm Magid, said. Targeting India is a “continuation of their desire to focus on the higher-growth segment.”

McMillon told analysts on Wednesday that the company would prioritize investments that generate new sales and profit.

Top 10 China Stocks To Buy For 2018: Embraer-Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica(ERJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last December, shares of Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) spiked following reports that it might sell itself to aerospace giant Boeing (NYSE:BA). Since then, the Brazilian government has ruled out a full takeover of Embraer but signaled its interest in facilitating a partnership between the two companies in the commercial aviation business.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last quarter, Alaska Airlines began taking concrete steps to align its fleet plan with its new target of 4% annual growth and $750 million of annual capital expenditures for 2019 and 2020. The carrier restructured its orders with Boeing (NYSE:BA), Airbus (NASDAQOTH:EADSY), and Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) to better fit its projected needs.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The week began for Boeing with reports that it had struck a deal with Brazil’s Embraer S.A. (NYSE: ERJ) to form a joint venture controlled by Boeing to build the Brazilian company’s commercial jets. Boeing had no comment, and neither did Embraer nor the Brazilian government.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Boeing had little to say about a deal with Brazil’s Embraer S.A. (NYSE: ERJ) that would give Boeing a controlling stake in Embraer’s commercial jet business and leave the firm’s military business under Brazilian government control. Muilenburg did point out, however, that Boeing doesn’t really need to do the deal, so it’s all good.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Aircraft manufacturers have been some of the biggest beneficiaries of the resurgence of airline stocks, and for Brazil’s Embraer (NYSE:ERJ), a focus on smaller aircraft that airlines can use to fill in route maps has paid off with strong results. Yet even with favorable overall conditions for the industry, Embraer has seen ups and downs from quarter to quarter, sometimes having to endure setbacks along the way.

    Some reasons for my bearishness on retail stocks:

    Higher Energy Prices. Oil prices have rallied dramatically and back to 2014 levels, rising from about $35 a barrel in early 2016 to around $67 Thursday. That’s bad news for U.S. retailers, as rising oil prices historically squeeze consumer disposable incomes. That’s one reason why I’ve been consistently raising my short exposure to retail and plan to continue doing so. Shaky Same-Store Sales Growth. Recent improvements to same-store sales at Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) , Urban Outfitters (URBN) , Dillard’s (DDS) , Gap Inc. (GPS) and Macy’s (M) come against downgraded expectations, and might not be sustainable anyway. No Deal for Nordstrom (JWN) . The Nordstrom family has apparently abandoned plans to take its namesake company private. I had expressed concerns that this would happen. Higher Interest Rates. A rise in the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has recently accelerated. That’s bad news for retailers, as many variable-rate consumer debts (particularly mortgages) key off of the LIBOR. This will likely put a damper on mortgage refinancings — something that many see as an important ingredient for personal-consumption expenditures.
