Top Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now

Since March 2009, the stock market has been virtually unstoppable. At one point in January 2018, all three major indexes — the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and Nasdaq — had essentially quadrupled from their Great Recession lows.

Of course, such a massive move in the broader market likely has investors wondering if stocks valuations have gotten ahead of themselves. One industry, though, where that doesn’t appear to be the case is with drug developers (i.e., pharmaceuticals and biotechnology).

Image source: Getty Images.

According to data provided by market analytics company Yardeni Research, the forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of the broad-based S&P 500 is 16.6, but it’s just 13.7 for pharmaceuticals and 12.6 for biotechnology, as of May 24, 2018. That’s one of the lowest forward P/E readings for biotech over the last 21 years, and certainly toward the bottom of the forward P/E range for pharmaceuticals since 1997. Only the years immediately following the Great Recession appear to have offered a cheaper buying opportunity in big pharma stocks, at least based on forward P/E.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

If you’re looking to invest in renewable power stocks, you can always pick out pure plays that take advantage of the huge demand for clean energy — and with utility customers inking long-term power contracts as they switch from dirty carbon-based fuels, that might be a winning strategy. However, what if the growth story behind renewables doesn’t live up to today’s hype?

That uncertainty is why a diversified company like NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NEE), with utility and renewable power operations, might make more sense for conservative investors.

Focusing on renewables

There’s no question that a company like Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (NYSE:BEP) is a great direct play on renewable power. Roughly 80% of the company’s power is hydroelectric, with the rest made up largely of wind and solar. Moreover, it has exposure to Brazil (20% of generation) and Columbia (15%), in addition to the United States (60%). Much of the company’s growth has come from acquisitions, and long-term contracts back up the bulk of its revenues. It’s a perfectly fine renewable power investment.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2019

The market has been tough on companies that didn’t quite meet expectations this earnings season, and Friday provided further examples. It’s not necessarily that firms aren’t doing well, but the bar has been raised and if you’re a company that doesn’t climb over that bar, you’re likely to get punched.

Deere & Company (NYSE: DE) on Friday became the latest big name to run into that particular buzz saw, missing Wall Street analysts’ average projection for earnings per share with a tally of $3.14 and seeing its shares fall in pre-market futures trading before jumping higher once the market actually opened. Analysts had expected $3.33, according to third-party consensus estimates. In a way, however, DE was a victim of high expectations, because its earnings were up a lot year-over-year but down vs. the Street’s consensus.

DE said in its release that the company is experiencing higher raw material and freight costs. This could point to the impact of rising energy prices on big industrial firms, and is something to keep in mind when the next earnings season rolls around in July. What DE didn’t say also stood out after its competitor Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) earlier this earnings season said the Q1 represented a “high water mark.” DE didn’t repeat that sort of language in its release, and had a lot of nice things to say about a quarter that saw equipment net sales rise 34 percent based on what DE called “strength in key markets.”

    5 reasons to buy IBM
    IBM posted its second straight quarter of annual sales growth after almost six years of declines. Its revenue rose 5% annually to $19.07 billion, beating estimates by $390 million. Its non-GAAP earnings also grew 4% to $2.45, topping expectations by $0.06. IBM’s closely watched “strategic imperatives” (SI) revenue — which comes from its higher-growth cloud, social, mobile, security, and analytics businesses — rose 12% annually (10% on a constant currency basis) to $37.7 billion over the past 12 months. That accounted for 47% of IBM’s revenue, compared to42% a year earlier. This tells us that Big Blue’s shift from legacy businesses to higher-growth ones is gradually paying off.IBM also noted, without disclosing an exact figure, that its security revenues also rose 60% annually during the quarter. IBM’s total cloud revenue over the past 12 months rose 22% annually (20% in constant currency) to $17.7 billion. For the quarter, its higher-growth cloud-as-a-service revenue rose 25% annually (20% in constant currency) to $10.7 billion, compared to 20% reported growth in the fourth quarter. Three of IBM’s four computing business segments (Cognitive Solutions, Global Business Services, and Technology Services & Cloud Platforms) posted positive annual sales growth and topped analyst estimates. IBM’s stock remains fairly cheap at less than 11 times this year’s earnings, and it pays a forward dividend yield of 3.8%. That low valuation and high yield should limit its downside potential.
    5 reasons to sell IBM
    IBM’s total sales were buoyed by a weak dollar. On a constant currency basis, its revenue actually stayed flat year over year during the quarter. On a constant currency basis, its Global Business Services and Technology Solutions & Cloud Platforms revenue would both have declined 1% annually. Its Cognitive Solutions revenue rose 6% in dollars, but just 2% on a constant currency basis. The

Top 10 Bank Stocks For 2018: Genuine Parts Company(GPC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Genuine Parts Co. (NYSE: GPC)
    Ok, now I know I’ve definitely locked in the broken record award. GPC is better known to consumers as NAPA auto parts. And aftermarket auto parts is probably one of the most lucrative businesses in the United States for too many reasons to cover now.

  • [By ]

    2. Price To Sales
    Another useful metric is the price-to-sales ratio (P/S). P/S measures a company’s market cap versus its annual revenue number. The idea is that the lower the number, the greater the implied value. For example, Snap, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNAP) trades at 26.9 times sales, an incredibly expensive number. However, aftermarket auto parts giant Genuine Parts (NYSE: GPC) trades at just 0.88 times sales — 88 cents to every dollar of sales the company brings in. Often, the lower the number, the more inefficiently the market has mispriced the stock.

    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

If you’re looking for proof of just how explosively profitable penny stocks are, Delcath Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH) is a perfect piece of evidence. This company saw its stock price surge from $0.02 on June 1 to $0.19 on June 26. That marked a stunning 850% gain, which happened after the company announced phase 2 trial data for its cancer drug Melphalan would be released.

But these triple-digit returns aren’t always justified by the company’s profits or business potential. For instance, Chinese energy company Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: CETC) saw shares jump 144% from $1.90 to $4.63 during just the first five sessions of April.

Top Clean Energy Stocks For 2019: Teladoc, Inc.(TDOC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Technology stocks are staples in growth portfolios because of their eye-popping revenue growth, but technology isn’t the only sector of the stock market that boasts fast-growing companies.

Top Clean Energy Stocks For 2019: Accenture plc.(ACN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer’s view or that of this articles’s author. TheStreet Ratings has this to say about the recommendation:

     

    We rate ACCENTURE PLC as a Buy with a ratings score of A+. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

    In trading on Thursday, industrial shares fell by 0.08 percent. Meanwhile, top losers in the sector included Accenture Plc (NYSE: ACN), down 4 percent, and Manitex International Inc (NASDAQ: MNTX), down 4 percent.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    With a dividend payout ratio of 44% and dividend yield of 2%, we consider Accenture our favorite income oriented security, recognizing valuation is near peak multiples. Fundamentally, we believe its mix of business should result in above-average revenue growth, and mix allows for modest margin expansion (rare in IT Services), that should result in steady and attractive double-digit total returns to shareholders.

Top Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

This stock’s low price isn’t going to last forever — it’s time to get in while the getting’s good.

One of the main goals of my premium newsletter High-Yield Investing is stability. I like industries that don’t go through unpredictable hot and cold cycles. Student Transportation (NYSE: STB) is a textbook example.

Millions of kids must travel to and from school each day, rain or shine. With a national fleet of school buses and a stack of contracts with various school districts, the company generates consistent, recurring income to share with its stockholders. That, along with its current yield of 5.9%, is why STB remains one of my readers’ favorite stocks.

My next recommendation enjoys similar stability thanks to another fact of life — babies.

In the unpredictable financial world, there are few things as guaranteed as birth rates. There were approximately 4 million births in the U.S. last year, 4 million give or take in 2016, 4 million in 2015, 4 million in 2014, 4 million in 2013. I could go on, all the way back to the 1950s, with little deviation year to year.
