Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019

Buying stocks that are cheap and out of favor to capture extra return when they eventually recover—a cornerstone of value investing—has worked for decades, but may no longer be a sound strategy due to shifts in how markets operate, according to Jeremy Grantham, founder of asset manager GMO.

Students of Benjamin Graham, author of The Intelligent Investor, widely considered the bible of value investing, rely on a phenomenon called mean reversion. Simply put, many stocks that become undervalued should eventually recover, while stocks that become overpriced should eventually return to earth.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Early-stage lithium producer Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF) has been busy developing its Argentine flag-ship asset at Olaroz. The company has managed to scale up the asset to around 12,000 T / year LCE with a nameplate production capacity of 17,500 T / year. Although the company has not achieved full production capacity at its asset, it has moved ahead with joint venture partner Toyota Tsusho (OTCPK:TYHOF) to develop plans for Phase 2. In January 2018, Orocobre announced that Toyota Tsusho would invest nearly $300 million for a 15% stake in the company, along with plans to double production capacity at Olaroz to 42,000 T LCE / year. The joint venture is also building a lithium hydroxide facility in Japan which will supply the local battery supply chain.

In March 2018, CATL the world’s soon-to-be largest lithium battery manufacturer purchased a controlling stake in the Quebec Lithium project in consideration for $66 million. In February 2018, Korean steel giant, POSCO (PKX) announced a supply agreement and investment into Australian lithium miner Pilbara Minerals (OTCPK:PILBF). In January 2018, Toyota Tsusho (OTCPK:TYHOF), the strategic trading arm of Toyota Motors, invested approximately A$300 million in Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF) in consideration for 15% of the company. Now, in April 2018, Swedish battery start-up NorthVolt has announced that it has signed an agreement for the supply of up to 5,000 metric tons per year of lithium hydroxide produced at Nemaska Lithium’s commercial plant in Shawinigan, Quebec. In connection with the supply of lithium chemicals, NorthVolt has agreed to deliver to Nemaska a 10 million euro promissory note that can be converted into voting shares of NorthVolt.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019: Insys Therapeutics, Inc.(INSY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market has been moving sharply higher lately, and Wednesday was no exception. A 0.6% gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average matched well with similar-sized jumps in other major indexes, with investors taking comfort from encouraging readings on the macroeconomic front. Yet even though much of the market continued to build on gains from earlier in the week, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the rally. Express (NYSE:EXPR), Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU), and Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Insys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY) and Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CARA) fall into the third category. However, the designations of both Insys and Cara as marijuana stocks warrant an asterisk. Insys’ cannabinoid drug Syndros is based on a synthetic form of THC, the primary psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Cara has a cannabinoid receptor agonist, CR701, in preclinical development.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    There’s no amount of caution tape that would be sufficient to wall off Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) from unsuspecting investors. This drugmaker, which focuses part of its research and product line on cannabinoids or synthetic cannabis compounds, wound up losing 1.1% in January and has shed well over 90% of its value in the past 3.5 years.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019: U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc.(SLCA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    B. Riley set a $19.00 price objective on U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) in a research note published on Friday. The brokerage currently has a buy rating on the mining company’s stock. B. Riley also issued estimates for U.S. Silica’s FY2021 earnings at $0.81 EPS.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Despite posting a sharp recovery in operations in 2017 compared to 2016, frack sand supplier U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) just can’t seem to earn the respect of Wall Street analysts. Shares have fallen 22% in the last year. Some of that is easy to understand considering how badly the company (and the industry as a whole) overshot market demand in the past, which crashed sand prices and wiped out profitability. But I think there’s enough evidence that management has learned valuable lessons and put them into practice this time around.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    That isn’t the case in many parts of the country anymore as capacity constraints and labor shortages are making everything more expensive. That’s bad news for producers because it likely means that break-even costs will increase. However, those that can introduce ways to improve efficiency will likely do quite well. One example Miller mentioned was containerized sand, a concept spearheaded by two frack sand producers: U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) and Hi-Crush Partners (NYSE:HCLP). These companies have developed sand hoppers that reduce last-mile shipping and loading times by more than 75%. This translates to significantly fewer trucks needed to move the same amount of sand and less downtime for producers. Both companies are seeing strong demand for the service, and it translates to much higher margins per ton of sand sold compared to their peers.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Investing in frack sand supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) has been a roller-coaster ride to say the least over the past few years. First, everyone on Wall Street was clamoring to get into frack sand when shale oil and gas were getting their start in the first half of this decade. Then, oil prices started to crash, and demand for frack sand dried up fast. Now that oil and gas producers have significantly lowered costs and are using more sand than ever, demand is red-hot again, but investors don’t seem to be interested.

    NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP) announced this week that it would acquire a portfolio of wind and solar assets from its parent NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) for $1.275 billion. The transaction, which the company will finance through a unique arrangement with leading asset manager BlackRock (NYSE:BLK), keeps it on track to grow its 3.6%-yielding dividend at a 12% to 15% annual pace all the way through 2023. That forecast could energize the company to produce market-smashing returns in the coming years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

NextEra secured long-term contracts to sell the power generated by those facilities to several creditworthy customers, which means they’ll provide NextEra Energy Partners with steady cash flow to support its dividend.

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.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: NextEra Energy, Inc.(NEE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The company has increased that payout at a fast pace over the years, including 15% in 2017. NextEra Energy Partners expects that to continue in those to come, with it currently planning to grow the dividend at a 12% to 15% annual pace through 2022. Powering that growth will be a combination of acquisitions both from its parent companyNextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) and third parties, as well as organic expansion projects. Although, drop-down transactions from NextEra Energy’s vast portfolio of renewable assets alone can easily support the company’s growth forecast. Because of that, investors have the opportunity to earn total annual returns in the 16% to 19% range when adding the distribution growth rate to the current yield. That outlook positions NextEra Energy Partners to continue delivering market-beating returns, which is something it has done since NextEra took it public in 2014.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Own For 2019: NextEra Energy, Inc.(NEE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Many stakeholders and technologies have played a role in this changing of the guard, but two companies in particular made incredible contributions: NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) and Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL). The pair of renewable utility holding companies ended 2017 with a combined 20.7 gigawatts of wind power in their generation mix. Throw in budding solar portfolios and their total renewable energy capacity tops 24 GW.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    After dropping a cumulative $23.6 billion on wind power-generating assets over the years, NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) is the undisputed king of low-carbon utilities. It’s the largest owner of wind capacity in North America, making up roughly 16% of America’s total with 14 GW installed. That number could jump as much as 4.1 GW by the end of this year depending on project completion dates.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Green investing in the U.K. fell 56 percent last year, sparking concerns in Parliament that the nation will not maintain its lead in clean energy or meet climate targets after leaving the European Union.

“Billions of pounds of investment is needed in clean energy, transport, heating and industry to meet our carbon targets,” said Mary Creagh, a member of Parliament who leads the the Environmental Audit Committee. “A dramatic fall in investment is threatening the government’s ability to meet legally binding climate change targets.”

The U.K. is a leader in clean energy, particularly offshore wind. Britain has installed more turbines in the sea than any other country and generated 15 percent of its electricity from wind and solar in 2016.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: American States Water Company(AWR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Contrary to what many believe, it’s easier to find stocks to invest in when you’re in your 60s. That’s because your choices narrow down significantly as you filter out young, aggressive companies that typically carry higher risk. As you near retirement, you need a portfolio choc-a-block with mature, established businesses that have a visible growth path and preferably offer solid dividends to supplement your income. Three interesting stocks that fit the bill are American States Water (NYSE:AWR), A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS), and Realty Income (NYSE:O).
