Top 5 Stocks To Own For 2019

Wells Fargo & Co.’s investors have a big day ahead — and so do the company’s critics.

Activist groups are planning a march Tuesday in Des Moines, Iowa, where the bank is holding its annual shareholders meeting, as well as “sister” protests in cities across the U.S.

Organizers are signaling a long list of grievances, including the firm’s consumer banking scandals, labor practices and work with the National Rifle Association. One invitation indicates that while investors vote on backing the bank’s leadership inside a downtown Marriott, some of the company’s own employees may speak against it outside.

California Treasurer John Chiang offered a preview Monday, holding a news conference next to the lender’s San Francisco headquarters to renew his call for the removal of Chief Executive Officer Tim Sloan and board member John Baker. The bank should hire an outsider as CEO and stop forcing arbitration on aggrieved consumers, he said.

Top 5 Stocks To Own For 2019: BlackLine, Inc. (BL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Cochrane]

    BlackLine Inc (NASDAQ:BL) offers cloud-based accounting software-as-a-service (SaaS) to companies, giving its customers the ability to perform continuous accounting, which, as opposed to batch processing, allows companies to automate cumbersome accounting tasks, saving them time and resources. It also gives them important data in real time, rather than having to wait until the end of a month or quarter when accounts have traditionally been reconciled.

  • [By Keith Speights, Sean Williams, and Brian Feroldi]

    We asked three Motley Fool contributors to identify which small-cap stocks they like right now. They picked cloud-based software provider Blackline (NASDAQ:BL), up-and-coming biotech Supernus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:SUPN), and cannabis distributor Origin House (NASDAQOTH:ORHOF). Here’s why these three small-cap stocks especially stand out.

    Thankfully, I recently came across an under-the-radar business that I believe is nicely positioned to deliver for its investors: BlackLine, Inc. (NASDAQ:BL). This founder-led software company is growing fast, boasts a rock-solid business model, and has a wide-open market opportunity ahead. Those factors make me believe that it’s a great company for growth-stock investors to add to their IRAs.

  • [By Brian Feroldi]

    So where am I going to invest my capital? While I’m still refining my list, here are seven stocks that I currently own that I’m strongly considering adding to:

    Hubspot (NYSE: HUBS) — A software-as-a-service provider that is pioneering the shift toward “inbound” marketing. HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider of Taser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-led payroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE) — The company’s push to the cloud is driving double-digit gains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — A software-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in several niche markets.  BlackLine (NASDAQ: BL) — A software company that is attempting to bring the accounting process into the 21st century. 

    All seven of these businesses are poised to deliver double-digit organic revenue and profit growth over the next five years. That’s a prospect I find quite enticing, and I think the odds are very favorable that they’ll outperform Apple as a group from here.
