Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2018

I’m in my early 60s and have about $400,000 in savings. I tend to stick to bank money-market accounts and CDs, as I was scammed in the past. What’s the safest way for me to invest this money?–Maria

Your urge to play it safe is perfectly understandable. You already know from bitter experience that there are people out there who prey on inexperienced (or even experienced) investors by conning them outright or putting them into investments that may be inappropriate for their situation, and expensive to boot.

Such conduct aside, the financial markets in and of themselves can be scary, even when you’re limiting yourself to perfectly legitimate investments. Even though the stock market’s been going gangbusters since rebounding from the financial crisis some eight and a half years ago and has been hitting new records of late, at some point stock prices will tumble big time, as they have many times in the past.

Bonds aren’t as volatile as stocks, but they too are somewhat vulnerable in that bond prices go down when interest rates go up (although as with stock setbacks, no one knows for sure when or how much bond yields will rise).

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Though I don’t directly own First Majestic Silver (NYSE:AG), I soon will, by default. I’m a shareholder in the aforementioned Primero Mining, and First Majestic Silver is in the process of acquiring Primero and its San Dimas mine, with the deal expected to close by the end of April. When it does, my Primero shares will be exchanged for shares of First Majestic, giving me ownership in the mining company that’s most levered to silver — about 70% of its sales are a result of silver production.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Next, you might be wondering what exactly would be considered “cheap” if analyzing cash flow per share. Though it’s going to be up to interpretation, after many years of tracking precious-metal stocks, I’m of the belief that a mining stock valued at 10 times its annual CFPS is considered fairly valued, with a slightly higher multiple for precious-metal royalty and streaming companies. With this in mind, here’s why SSR Mining (NASDAQ:SSRM) and First Majestic Silver (NYSE:AG) are currently the top two holdings in my portfolio.

    Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI)recently announced earnings results that edged past management’s targets. The video game publisher notched important first-quarter wins in core metrics such as engagement and profitability. However, due to the timing of its biggest releases, and plans to ramp up the esports and advertising businesses, investors won’t have a clear picture on Activision’s 2018 performance until later in the fiscal year than usual.

    If you compare Activision Blizzard’s (NASDAQ:ATVI) balance sheet with its peers’, one thing might jump out at you — the Overwatch maker is saddled with a lot of debt.

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

The world’s largest automaker is putting big money into electric vehicles in China.

Volkswagen (VLKAF) and its local partners plan to invest more than 10 billion ($11.8 billion) to build electric and hybrid cars in the country — the world’s biggest auto market — over the next seven to eight years.

More electric vehicles are sold in China than anywhere else on the planet — and the national government is pushing companies to design and build them on Chinese territory.

Under the plan announced Thursday, VW and its partners are aiming to develop and produce as many as 40 new electric and hybrid vehicle models in China between now and 2025. It expects the first of the new models to hit the Chinese market next year.

VW’s top China exec, Jochem Heizmann, said the German company is “determined to be at the forefront” of China’s electric vehicle revolution.

China accounts for about 50% of the global market for clean energy vehicles, according to investment firm East Capital. Chinese officials said two months ago that they were working on a plan to eventually phase out the production and sale of vehicles powered solely by fossil fuels.
