Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019

Earlier this year, Walmart (NYSE:WMT) escalated its battle with Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) by purchasing a majority stake in Flipkart, one of India’s leading online retailers, for $16 billion. This was an important acquisition for Walmart. If Amazon had succeeded in its bid for the e-commerce portal, it would effectively have controlled about 80% of the country’s fast-growing online sales.

In typical Amazon fashion, the company struck back in a move designed to give it a bigger presence in this rapidly expanding market. Amazon, together with Indian private equity firm Samara Capital, has acquired More — one of India’s most well-known supermarket chains — for 42 billion rupees (about $581 million, at current exchange rates), according to a report by CNBC18 in India, citing a press release from seller Aditya Birla Group. Neither Amazon nor Samara Capital have commented on the report.

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc.(RARE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical (NASDAQ:RARE) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Ultragenyx launched its second drug, Crysvita, in the United States to treat X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) in April. We are optimistic on the drug’s uptake. The drug was also approved in the EU in February on a conditional basis. In May, the company announced positive phase II data from the drug in pediatric setting, but according to the FDA those were not sufficient to support an NDA. Thus, the company is in discussions with FDA and EMA, which would provide further clarity regarding whether an additional study would be required for the approval. The company also remains focused on its two-gene therapy programs — DTX301 for ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency and DTX401 for glycogen storage disease type Ia. However, developmental or regulatory setbacks could result in higher operating expenses and the need for additional capital. Loss estimates have narrowed ahead of  Q3 earnings release.”

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Stamps.com Inc.(STMP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Timothy Green]

    Shares of Stamps.com (NASDAQ:STMP) rebounded a bit on Monday after suffering a brutal decline on Friday. When it released its fourth-quarter results on Thursday, the company also announced the end of its exclusive deal to sell postage for the U.S. Postage Service. That news introduced heaps of uncertainty about its future earnings, and investors reacted by sending the stock down nearly 60% in a single day.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Print-your-own-postage service Stamps.com (NASDAQ:STMP) reported second-quarter earnings last month, and it was a bit of a mixed bag.

    On the one hand, Stamps.com reported sales growth of 20% and earnings growth twice as strong — EPS rose 41% year over year. (Stamps also raised its guidance for the year.) On the other hand, both its customer count and its customer churn rate were basically flat. Stamps depended largely on rising ARPU, or average revenue per paid customer, for both its sales and earnings growth, as it shifted its strategy away from growing the customer base and toward a focus on “the largest and most sophisticated e-commerce sellers.”

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

    Monday was a positive day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks jumped following an uneventful weekend, tapering their gains as the session came to a close. Some had feared that China might retaliate once again after the U.S. issued a second round of tariffs against the nation with the world’s second-largest economy, but the expected fireworks didn’t come, putting market participants more at ease. The beginning of earnings season in the next week will also distract investors from geopolitical issues, perhaps allowing indexes to climb further. Yet some individual stocks had difficulties that sent their shares lower. Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), Menlo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:MNLO), and MGIC Investment (NYSE:MTG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Monday was a positive day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks jumped following an uneventful weekend, tapering their gains as the session came to a close. Some had feared that China might retaliate once again after the U.S. issued a second round of tariffs against the nation with the world’s second-largest economy, but the expected fireworks didn’t come, putting market participants more at ease. The beginning of earnings season in the next week will also distract investors from geopolitical issues, perhaps allowing indexes to climb further. Yet some individual stocks had difficulties that sent their shares lower. Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), Menlo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:MNLO), and MGIC Investment (NYSE:MTG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

Small SUVs are the hottest segment in the new car market right now. So maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that a big chunk of the new vehicle unveilings at the Los Angeles Auto Show were little crossover SUVs.

It seemed like there was an SUV popping out every time you turned around. For starters, Ford unveiled its new EcoSport just before the show with DJ Khaled doing the honors.

The Jeep Compass is another example of the car market’s madness for small-sized SUVs. The current version is a strong seller despite abysmal reviews. Consumer Reports gave it the lowest rating of any compact SUV and Car & Driver awarded it a mere 1.5 out of a possible five stars.

And yet, as of last month, Jeep Compass sales for the year were up 44%. According to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAM), which makes Jeeps, the sales jump reflects the Compass’s relatively low price given all the desirable SUV features that it offers.

DJ Khaled unveils new Ford EcoSport on Snapchat

It’s too soon to know, of course, how good the new Compass is but it should at least be a vast improvement over the outgoing model. Since it’s a Jeep, engineers took off-road capability seriously in creating the new Compass. Two different full-time all-wheel-drive systems are available including a super-slow off-road “crawl” gearing ratio. “Trail Rated” versions can wade through 19 inches of water and climb over steep hills and out of tight ditches. At the same time, Jeep also promises better on-road behavior.

    Wall Street saw mixed performance in the stock market on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average setting a record high even as other indexes gave up ground. Weak performances from the small-cap Russell 2000 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite reflected concerns about whether rallies in those areas of the market have become overextended, but investors in the larger global companies in the Dow like the more favorable trade environment that’s emerged in recent days. Even so, some individual stocks suffered setbacks. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU), and Guess? (NYSE:GES) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE: CRM) will report earnings after the bell. The cloud computing giant is expected to report earnings per share of $0.47 on top of $3.23 billion in revenue. With strong cloud-computing demand from businesses, expect a lot of anticipation around the company’s third-quarter forecast and full-year outlook.

(Nasdaq: GOOGL) after President Trump accused the team behind the Google search engine of selective bias. Trump believes that Google has been hiding positive news about him, but he failed to provide any evidence to his claims. Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, said the White House is “having a look” at Google, but didn’t provide any details on the plan. Shares of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) are on the move thanks to a big upgrade from Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS). Analysts at the investment bank hiked their price target for AMZN stock to $2,500 per share. That figure would push the e-commerce giant’s market capitalization to a whopping $1.2 trillion. This is the highest price target among the 41 analysts covering the stock, according to data from FactSet. Look for additional earnings reports from Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    The fourth quarter was brutal for the oil industry, as oil prices crashed 40% from their peak in early October. While that slump in the oil market had an impact on land-based drilling activities, it didn’t spill over into the offshore segment, because those projects have much longer lead times. That meant Oceaneering International’s (NYSE:OII) fourth-quarter results were able to improve both year over year and sequentially.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: ENI S.p.A.(E)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ENI (NYSE:E) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “With recovering oil prices, Eni’s operating profits from its Refining & Marketing business has gone down in the first half of 2018 against the comparable period of 2017. Also, operating profit from its Chemical business fell 79% during this period due to rising costs of oil-based feedstock. Moreover, Eni has sold 50% of its stake in the Zohr field, a high yielding project, which can impact its revenues. Fall in demand for products like gasoil and gasoline, in Italy, is also a concern for the company. If this consumption trend persists, the company’s profit levels will get affected. Given these headwinds, Eni seems like a risky bet that ordinary investors should exit.”

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Matthew DiLallo, and Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    So we asked three of our Motley Fool contributors to sift through stocks in the oil industry to come up with three that investors should put on their radars. Here’s why they picked MPLX LP (NYSE:MPLX), Cimarex Energy (NYSE:XEC), and ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The energy sector has been good to dividend investors over the years as companies operating in the industry tend to generate lots of cash, which allows them to pay lucrative and growing dividends. While the sector offers income-seekers a variety of opportunities, three top options to consider are ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), and Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX). Not only do all three currently offer above-average payouts, but they have the financial strength and visible growth prospects to continue increasing their dividends in the coming years.

    It was looking like, for the first time in a while, we were going to be able to look at MPLX’s (NYSE:MPLX) most recent earnings report without having to consider some big transaction down the road that would fundamentally change these numbers and render them useless. Then, just a couple days before earnings were released, MPLX’s parent company, Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC), announced a huge acquisition that could have a profound impact on MPLX down the road.

Best Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

For this episode of Motley Fool Answers, Robert Brokamp and Alison Southwick have brought in an outside expert to discuss one of the more fraught and complex challenges that many of us will face as adults: becoming a primary caregiver for an aging loved one. It’s a position that saps your time, your energy, your emotions, and your finances — and that’s when matters are going normally. In addition to being a pro on the subject, their guest, the AARP’s Amy Goyer, has traveled this path with multiple family members. She has plenty of straightforward, actionable advice to share. 

But first, in this week’s What’s Up, Bro segment, they look to history for hints about one of the most common warnings lately on Wall Street: “We’re overdue for a recession!” It’s a prophesy that has been offered with increasing vigor for the past several years … during which the market has continued to set new highs, and the post-Great Recession economic engine has kept humming along.

Here&a;rsquo;s the truth about the whole &a;ldquo;sell in May and go away&a;rdquo; strategy&a;mdash;following it will cost you huge gains and income. And if whipsawing markets have you thinking of cutting back on stocks this summer, you need to reverse course now.

Consider this: in the 9 years since the financial crisis, this &a;ldquo;advice&a;rdquo; only worked 3 times. And by &a;ldquo;worked,&a;rdquo; I mean you would have sidestepped a decline in the S&a;amp;P 500 by sitting out from May through October. Those are crap-shoot odds!

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    In March, FERC dropped a bombshell on MLP investors by reversing a long-standing policy that had allowed these entities to collect an additional fee to cover income taxes as part of their cost-of-service rates on long-haul pipelines. This rule change weighed heavily on MLPs that were majority-owned by other energy companies, since they used this rate structure to cover the taxes they would pay on the income received from their MLPs. Among the hardest hit were Dominion Energy Midstream Partners — owned by utility Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) — and TC Pipelines, controlled by Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Meanwhile, Enbridge Energy Partners and Spectra Energy Partners, which are both sponsored by Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB), also sold off on that early-spring news, which subsequently led Enbridge to offer to acquire its MLPs.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ENI (NYSE:E) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “With recovering oil prices, Eni’s operating profits from its Refining & Marketing business has gone down in the first half of 2018 against the comparable period of 2017. Also, operating profit from its Chemical business fell 79% during this period due to rising costs of oil-based feedstock. Moreover, Eni has sold 50% of its stake in the Zohr field, a high yielding project, which can impact its revenues. Fall in demand for products like gasoil and gasoline, in Italy, is also a concern for the company. If this consumption trend persists, the company’s profit levels will get affected. Given these headwinds, Eni seems like a risky bet that ordinary investors should exit.”

Best Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Honeywell International (NYSE:HON) has been one of the best performing diversified conglomerates in the last year, and one of the few that’s outperformed the S&P 500 on a year-to-date basis at the time of writing. That’s impressive, and bodes well for the company’s future after its upcoming spinoffs of automotive turbo business Garrett (NYSE: GTX) and home products and ADI global distribution business Resideo (NYSE: REZI). Let’s take a look at why Honeywell has had such a strong run and what it means for investors.

Best Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

EMM & QNX will be the growth drivers going forward. But the risks in BlackBerry stock continue to remain elevated.

BlackBerry (NSDQ:BBRY) stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).

BlackBerry’s latest fiscal third quarter was definitely a mixed bag. On one hand, you had aggressive margin expansion and a surprising profitable quarter on a non-GAAP basis, but on the other hand, top line came in $20 million short of what was expected. A return to revenue growth is expected next year with enterprise software & QNX probably leading the way. Blackberry and its investors know that if this company can comprehensively combine these areas as well as its security wing to work cohesively in the emerging Internet Of Things market (IoT), then this company will have a strategic competitive advantage. Blackberry’s pivot from hardware to software may have been well timed but I would still recommend caution. Here are three reasons to back up my case.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Back in my early 20s, when I was broke and in student-loan and credit-card debt, I started to be able to save a little money. Practically microscopic amounts but it was something.

I was so terrified of losing even those few dollars that I thought I needed to make them as safe as possible. So instead of putting them into vehicles that might actually make me some money, I put my funds into a savings account not even a high-yield savings account and once I started to save slightly more, into the safest mutual fund I could find, an intermediate bond fund.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1.

    That ability to organically discover new shale plays has saved it a ton of money. The company was able to quietly gobble up 50,000 acres in Oklahoma over a four-year period for just $750 an acre. Contrast that with rivalsDevon Energy(NYSE:DVN) andMarathon Oil(NYSE:MRO). Devon spent $1.9 billion to buy Felix Energy in late 2015 for the company’s 80,000 acres in Oklahoma, paying a whopping $23,750 an acre. Meanwhile, Marathon paid $888 million for PayRock Energy and its 61,000 acres in the state, which amounted to roughly $14,500 an acre. EOG’sdeepknowledge of shale helps it know where to look so it can lock up land for next to nothing before rivals even know what’s there.

    As things stand right now, analysts anticipate that at least some Iranian oil will come off the market as a result of the sanctions. That lost output would further tighten an oil market that suddenly has little margin for error thanks to red-hot demand and tame supply growth. That’s the recipe for higher oil prices and could make top-tier U.S. oil stocks Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) big winners in the coming years.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018

I hate holiday crowds. The one person I know who hates them more is my younger brother. The only reason we found ourselves braving the chaos of the mall that Christmas five years ago was my mother.

It’s her favorite holiday, and all she wanted was a picture of her kids with Santa Claus. I was 19 and he was 17. But off we went.

We expected a long line, screaming children and frazzled parents — and we got them. But then there he was: A red-suited, rosy-faced, bearded Santa. And, as it turns out, a graduate of a special school that turns average Joes into St. Nicks.

After all, anyone can put on a red suit and a white beard and call himself Santa. The pros know it takes more than looks alone.

That’s where Noerr Programs comes in — a company that specializes in holiday productions. They build the sets, take the photos and provide Santa himself for malls around the country.

The company makes sure its Santas are up to snuff by sending them to Santa University, a four-day boot camp for aspiring Kriss Kringles in Arvada, Colorado.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018

Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE:TAP) has been underperforming peers since October 2016, or since the remaining purchase of Miller Coors was announced. In my point of view, it is only a matter of time until the market rewards managements effort to drive shareholder value, and 2018 could be that year. Shares declined by more than 30% since its peak and now trade at a reasonable valuation of 16 price-to-forward looking earnings, and at a significant discount compared to Heinekens (OTCQX:HEINY) price-to-forward looking earnings of 21 and Anheuser-Busch InBev’s (NYSE:BUD) 21.

Management is focusing on debt reduction and managing the product mix better to increase profitability. Earnings from the recent quarter prove that management is capable of increasing efficiency, and because the company generates significant free cash flow, the debt repayments towards a more sustainable level should not be a problem. Hence, I think Molson Coors will catch up with peers valuation.

From a technical perspective, the best entry would be in the low $70s, 10% lower compared to the current price, but the likelihood that the price reaches that level is not that high. Hence, the good strategy could be to use the recent sell-off and start allocating shares, and if the price reaches $70, then to increase the position and benefit from historical bullish price action around that level.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The last few weeks have been tough for Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE:FCX). The Phoenix, Arizona – based metals and energy company has seen its stock sink almost 20% over the last four weeks. The slump was driven in large part by two factors – weakness in commodity prices and sale of a major energy asset for cash. But investors shouldn’t panic.

Image: Pixabay.com

Freeport-McMoRan is the world’s leading publicly traded copper producer, with more than 2.2 billion pounds of copper production in the first six months of this year. Unfortunately, copper is one of the few commodities whose prices haven’t meaningfully risen this year. Freeport-McMoRan’s average realized price of copper increased by just 0.5% in the second quarter as compared to the first quarter. By comparison, the miner’s average realized price of oil rose 41.4% in the same period. The excess supply of copper, growing inventory levels at London Metal Exchange warehouses and weak demand from China which is copper’s biggest consumer, has weighed heavily on the red metal. At the end of last month, copper dropped to its lowest level in two months of $4,610 per tonne. That dragged Freeport-McMoRan stock.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Retirement investors want sure things. There isnt enough time to make up for stocks that just fall into the ground, never to return. So considering how awful energy has been for the past couple of years, its probably surprising to see energy stocks and retirement mentioned in the same vicinity.

Sustained low oil and natural gas prices have negatively impacted energy stocks. OK, thats putting it mildly. Low prices have outright strangled some companies right out of business, and has made life miserable for the vast majority of the sector.

And considering many retirement investors were sucked in by the plentiful dividends in the energy sector, they know the pain. And theyre probably not too forgiving.
