Best High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Majesco Entertainment Company(COOL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market had a mildly positive day on Friday, and gains of between 0.1% and 0.3% were common for most of the major benchmark indexes. Without any outright hostility among leaders of the G-7 nations in their summit in Canada’s Quebec City, investors seemed content to go into the weekend with confidence in the prospects for the U.S. economy and its biggest businesses. Yet some individual companies had bad news that held their shares back from participating in the rally. Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR), PolarityTE (NASDAQ:COOL), and Evolus (NASDAQ:EOLS) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Stocks To Own For 2019

What happened

Shares of Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) jumped as much as 11% on Monday after The New York Post said Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC) was interested in buying the food and beverage company.

“Campbell Soup, which last month said it was reviewing all aspects of its strategic plans and portfolio composition, will have at least one deep-pocketed suitor interested in kicking the tires should it decide to put itself on the block, the Post has learned,” Josh Kosman reported.

At the time of this writing, Campbell stock is up about 9.8%.

So what

Campbell is going through a transition, as CEO Denise Morrison retired last month. Morrison was replaced by board member Keith McLoughlin as interim CEO. 

Under McLoughlin’s leadership, Campbell would “strive to accelerate our growth strategy, improve our execution, and deliver shareholder value,” he said in a press release last month.

    As of the end of the first quarter of 2018, 17.3% of Cheniere Holdings’ common shares were publicly held. Cheniere Energy had only non-economic voting control of the firm. Cheniere Holdings’ sole asset was a 48.6% limited-partner interest in Cheniere Energy Partners L.P. (NYSE: CQP), Cheniere Energy’s publicly traded master limited partnership (MLP).

    Even though the spot price has come down a bit since then, it still gave management enough confidence to increase its guidance for the full fiscal year. Management raised its estimate for full-year adjusted EBITDA to $2.2 billion-$2.5 billion and distributable cash flow from Cheniere Energy Partners (NYSEMKT:CQP) to $0.35 billion-$0.55 billion. 

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Cheniere Energy Holdings’ sole asset is an approximate 48.6% limited partner interest in Cheniere Energy Partners LP (NYSEAMERICAN: CQP).

    Cheniere Partners is constructing and operating natural gas liquefaction facilities at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in the Gulf of Mexico. The company plans to construct up to six natural gas liquefaction trains, which are in various stages of development, construction and operations. Trains 1 through 4 are operational, Train 5 is under construction and Train 6 is being commercialized and has all necessary regulatory approvals in place.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    The one thing that was a little discouraging was that the downtime took a little longer than expected. The one positive note here is that it happened at a slower time of the year for gas demand. Despite the lower results for the quarter, management was confident enough to raise the low end of its guidance for distributable cash flow from subsidiary Cheniere Energy Partners (NYSEMKT:CQP) from $0.35 billion to $0.4 billion.
