Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2019

Biotech has consistently been home to some of the top growth stocks in the entire market. And even though biotech hasn’t been at its best by a long shot this year, this particular sub-sector has still managed to produce some of the best-performing stocks at large.

Over the past year, for example, gene therapy company uniQure N.V. (NASDAQ:QURE) and endocrine specialist Viking Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VKTX) both saw their shares skyrocket against the backdrop of a fairly weak overall market for biotech. Despite their rapid appreciation, though, these two stocks might still be incredible bargains for investors comfortable with high levels of risk. Here’s why.

Gene therapy has reinvented itself

After decades of disappointing results, gene therapy has truly come of age in the past two years. And the market has definitely taken notice. Gene therapy stocks, after all, have been jumping higher this year, and this trend is showing no signs of slowing down. That’s one key reason the small-cap biotech uniQure N.V. might be a particularly great buy right now.

    Sunoco (NYSE:SUN) released its quarterly earnings results on Wednesday. The oil and gas company reported ($3.74) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.57 by ($4.31), Briefing.com reports. Sunoco had a return on equity of 17.06% and a net margin of 1.27%. The firm had revenue of $3.75 billion for the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $3 billion. During the same quarter in the previous year, the business posted ($0.22) EPS. The firm’s revenue for the quarter was up 33.5% compared to the same quarter last year.

    There was a similar trend for smaller midstream player Phillips 66 Partners LP (NYSE:PSXP). It was down 19% in 2018 and rose 16% in January. But the trend didn’t hold for Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN), which distributes gasoline. This limited partnership was off by 4% in 2018, two percentage points less than the broader market, and up 12% in January. Cheniere Energy Partners LP (NYSEMKT:CQP) and Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG) were even further from the pack, up 12% and 11%, respectively, in January after posting gains of 21% and roughly 10%, respectively, in 2018.

    Around this time last year, Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN) announced a transformative divestment. The sale of its extensive retail filling station network to convenience store specialist 7-Eleven was going to give management the cash it needed to clean up its balance sheet and provide it with a much more stable revenue source. One would have assumed that when the company made this transaction, Wall Street would reward the stock with a higher valuation. That hasn’t been the case, though, as Sunoco’s stock is still languishing with a sky-high distribution yield north of 12%.

    Three high-yield dividend stocks that seem to be in danger of a dividend reduction are Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP), Enbridge Energy Partners (NYSE:EEP), and Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN). Investors are better off steering clear of this trio and considering safer options instead.

    Before the bell, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reported its second GDP estimate for the fourth quarter. U.S. economic growth came in at 2.6%, a figure that topped consensus expectations. Q2 and Q3 2018 GDP growth came in at fabulous levels – 4.2% and 3.4%, respectively. However, investors predicted the reading would come in lower due to the government shutdown during the fourth quarter. In other economic news, the Department of Labor this morning reported weekly jobless claims at 225,000. That figure is slightly higher than the 220,000 expected by economists.

    Maryland voted for a pro-marijuana candidate for governor this week. Ben Jealous won the democratic nomination, and if elected, he would use cannabis tax revenue to fund pre-K education throughout the state. Investors are speculating that Canadian brewer Molson Coors Brewing Co. (NYSE: TAP) may be getting into the marijuana business. Bloomberg reported on June 25 that the beverage giant is considering a move into cannabis-infused beverages in Canada. Though the report hasn’t been confirmed by Molson, a company presentation on June 6 said that it was exploring the opportunities and risks of entering the market. Justin Staples, a former NFL linebacker, is starting a new career in the cannabis industry. He was hired as the Director of Business Development for Revolution Enterprises, according to a June 27 Forbes “I’m joining the Revolution Team at a true industry inflection point because my values align with Revolution’s success in providing Illinois patients cannabis medicine as an alternative to addictive opioids,” Staples said in the Forbes report. When the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement expires in 2020, some believe the league will update its policies and allow medical marijuana for pain management.

Top Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

If you are an income investor looking at gold stocks you might be tempted to buy Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM), a gold and silver streaming company with a relatively high yield. It’s not a bad stock to own, but it may not be the best dividend stock for your portfolio if you don’t understand a few important basics. Here’s what you need to know before you buy Wheaton for its peer-beating dividend yield.

What Wheaton does

The first thing to understand is that Wheaton Precious Metals is not a miner. It is a streaming company. That means it provides cash up front to miners in exchange for the right to buy gold and silver at reduced rates in the future. It’s a business model that provides Wheaton with wide margins in both good markets and bad because of its contractually locked-in low prices.
