Best High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

This year has been a pretty good one for energy stocks. Thanks to improving oil prices, the average energy stock as measured by the Vanguard Energy ETF (NYSEMKT: VDE) — which holds more than 140 energy stocks — is up about 6% for the year, outpacing the 4% gain for the S&P 500.

However, not all energy stocks have enjoyed an up year. Two of those laggards are TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) and Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB), which have both sold-off by double digits. Those declines have pushed their dividend yields above 5%, making them great options for income-focused investors to consider buying.

Double-digit dividend growth at a double-digit discount

Despite getting off to a great start in 2018, shares of Williams Companies are down 10%. That sell-off doesn’t make sense given Williams’ improving financial profile and the growth it has coming down the pipeline.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Watching the fireworks yesterday, a houseguest commented on why the techno display is bad for the environment (there’s always one in every crowd, isn’t there…!) It’s hard to ignore the majesty of a well produced fireworks display, and I don’t really see too many people hopping on the “let’s clean up the environment by eliminating standard 4th of July fare” bandwagon, but the issue did spark a larger discussion about clean energy, and in particular, LED lighting.

Incandescent bulbs were phased out beginning in 2007, and now, 10 years later, no incandescent light is manufactured in or imported for sale into the United States. These notoriously inefficient sources of light have been replaced globally with LED lights, which are more energy efficient, emit greater light, last multiple times longer than traditional bulbs, and are far cooler from an operational – and now a style quotient – standpoint.

Best Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Growth versus value investing is one of the major debates in the investment world.  Growth stocks seem to have outperformed their value counterparts over the past few years. But the winning streak of growth investing took a hit this year with value stocks regaining lost glory.

It is currently speculated that value investing will likely continue its winning run in the upcoming years. Hence, adding potential stocks to one’s portfolio might prove to be an ideal option in the current scenario.

Value vs. Growth Investing: Long-Drawn Debate

Value investors seek to invest in stocks that are believed to be trading at a discounted value. Investors look for favorable value ratios including low price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-book value (P/B) ratios to identify potential value stocks. While a significant number of these stocks are also expected to come with solid dividend payments, these stocks are also expected to moderate growth prospects.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2018

Hospitals may soon have to post their standard prices for patients online, under a proposed rule unveiled Tuesday by the Trump administration.

Also, the administration is seeking comments on how to stop so-called surprise billing — when patients are charged after unknowingly being seen by out-of-network providers — and how to give patients better information about the out-of-pocket costs they will face.

And officials are ramping up pressure on hospitals to give patients better access to their medical records electronically or face a penalty.

The proposed rule is the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ latest effort to give patients more information about the cost of health care and about their own medical history so they can better direct their own care. The guidance — part of the annual update to Medicare payment policies — applies mainly to Medicare patients and providers, but officials expect it will influence practices across the nation’s health care system. It would take effect in 2019.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2018

The state of New York just made a huge leap forward with medical marijuana – and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, or VA, is not happy about it.

But it doesn’t matter. The VA stands no chance against medical marijuana’s insane trajectory.

Over the weekend, NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed new legislation that allows those in the state with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to use marijuana to treat symptoms. The bill has been touted as a boon for veterans in particular.

“Our veterans risked their lives in order to defend the ideals and principles that this nation was founded upon, and it is our duty to do everything we can to support them when they return home,” said Cuomo, according to The Associated Press.

New York is the 28th state to legalize medical marijuana for PTSD, and this legislation is in direct opposition to the VA’s negative stance on weed.

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Biotech Stocks For 2019

Welcome to Biotech Analysis Central Daily News, a daily news report and analysis about what has happened lately in the biotech industry

Merck’s Keytruda Achieves Success In Phase 3 Study As A Combo Therapy

News: On Tuesday, Merck (MRK) announced positive results in a phase 3 study, using a combination of Keytruda and Alimta, treating patients with previously untreated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Alimta is a lung cancer drug developed by Eli Lilly (LLY). The phase 3 study, named Keynote-189, met on both endpoints of the study. The combo improved progression-free survival and overall-survival in patients.

Analysis: This news is really good for Merck. Not only did it report positive results for this indication, but it did so very early. That’s because this was just an interim look at the data. The final data for this trial was not expected until early 2019. The news might get even better, because this was just top-line results that were reported. The full set of detailed data from this study won’t be revealed until an upcoming medical conference. That means that investors have a lot to look forward too. This also trumps the notion that a Keytruda- chemo combo won’t work for first-line lung cancer. That’s because Merck pulled its European application last year for a Keytruda-chemo combo, because of results from a small phase 2 study. At that time, everyone was placing bets that the phase 3 study would also not show impressive data. Well, as you can see Merck has proved everyone wrong, and now it has a lot to hang its hat on. This win for Merck is bad for both Roche (OTCQX:RHHBY) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) which is why both traded lower as soon as the Merck results were announced.
