Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019: Standard Motor Products, Inc.(SMP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Through its bond-buying securities and markets program (SMP) and the agreement on net financial assets (ANFA), the European Central Bank and euro-area central banks hold some 12.8 billion euros in Greek bonds, the profits from which are redistributed to euro-area governments. These profits from bond holdings, which will amount to around 4 billion euros until 2022, have been promised to Greece in order to help it ease its debt burden. This sum will likely be split into annual disbursements and used as a carrot creditors can offer Greece over the next few years in order to ensure the country sticks to its reform commitments and fiscal path.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

I’ve had my eye on utility NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) for quite some time, but I never got around to adding it to my portfolio. That changed this week, as I finally bought shares of the clean energy giant. Here are the three main reasons why.

1. It’s betting big on clean energy

NextEra Energy is already the world leader in generating electricity from the wind and sun after investing tens of billions of dollars over the years to build new renewable power-generating capacity. However, the company isn’t stopping while it’s ahead. Instead, it’s continuing to bet big on clean energy by investing $40 billion through 2020 to build new solar, wind, and storage capacity, as well as more natural gas pipelines.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

Sports and stocks go hand in hand.

Wall Street denizens often talk about slam dunk investments and describe the economic cycle as being in a particular inning.

So it makes perfect sense that there’s an ETF dedicated to the business of sports.

The ProSports Sponsors exchange-traded fund, which has the ticker symbol FANZ (FANZ), invests in companies that have business deals with the four major US team sports leagues.

Nick Fullerton, CEO of SportsETFs, the company behind the fund, said it was set up last year to take advantage of the popularity of team sports, which bring in big dollars.

Legal gambling, which is set to spread across the United States, could boost that popularity even more.

Fullerton was quick to point out that the companies in the FANZ ETF must have an actual sponsorship with a major league, and not just a naming rights deal on a stadium.

No CMGIs or Enrons here.

“These are blue chip companies with strong balance sheets and cash flow,” Fullerton said.

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL) was downgraded by investment analysts at BidaskClub from a “sell” rating to a “strong sell” rating in a research note issued on Friday.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street had another good session on Thursday, with further gains for major markets as benchmarks like the Russell 2000 index of small-cap stocks flirted with record highs. A favorable reading from the consumer price index showed only modest growth in prices, and the idea that inflation remains in check led market participants to believe that the Federal Reserve won’t have to speed up its efforts to return short-term interest rates to more normal levels. Yet even with the overall market picking up ground, some companies had bad news that weighed on their share prices. Booking Holdings (NASDAQ:BKNG), Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL), and L Brands (NYSE:LB) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: NVR Inc.(NVR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    For a business that is supposed to be relatively seasonal and cyclical, NVR (NYSE:NVR) has been enjoying an impressive run of growth. Not only did the company deliver impressive top- and bottom-line expansion, but it also showed positive trends on just about every operating metric. If there was one thing to critique, it’s how management is dividing up the benefits of these boom times.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Priestley:Yeah,absolutely. The first stock that you mentioned was NVR (NYSE:NVR). They focus on building luxury homes in Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania,and Virginia. They have three distinct brands:Ryan Homes, NV Homes and Heartland Homes. They’reactually the most expensive, I think, of the stocks that we’re going to talk about today. Their P/E is at 24X. But they’re also the biggest, and the past 12 months have seen the stock come up almost 50%. So, great pick! What exactly attracted you to NVR?

The industry already has seen strong Q1 results from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN), and housing starts and building permits in March rose more than expected. These results, as well as those and the economic data from next week could provide clues for the industry going forward. After NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR) reports results this morning, Meritage Homes Corp.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

AT&T (NYSE:T) could offer customers a streaming television package for the low, low price of $0 per month in the near future.

During AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson’s testimony in the Department of Justice’s case against his company, blocking its potential acquisition of Time Warner (NYSE:TWX), he noted the company is planning a $15 per month sports-free streaming bundle called AT&T Watch.

Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche said the service will be available to everyone, but AT&T will offer it for free to its wireless customers. AT&T currently offers a $15 discount on any DirecTV Now bundle to its unlimited wireless data plan subscribers, so it would effectively be offering the same discount for customers who opt for the sport-free AT&T Watch. AT&T also offers free HBO to its unlimited subscribers.

AT&T has said it’s seen a lot of success by bundling video products with its wireless plans, and it’s seen a couple of copycat attempts by T-Mobile and Sprint. AT&T Watch is yet another move to differentiate its service.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now: Yandex N.V.(YNDX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    U.S. investors often avoid Russian stocks due to the political risks, sanctions, and currency issues associated with the once-hot emerging market. But despite those challenges, there’s one Russian growth stock that doubled over the past two years — Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), which created the country’s top search engine.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    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.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Value investors get a bad rap. Sometimes, value investing is referred to as “cigar butt” investing, in that picking up cheap, undervalued stocks is equivalent to picking up mostly smoked cigars off of the sidewalk. A good friend and colleague of mine used to call me a “dumpster diver”. Guilty.

Why value? Personally, I hate overpaying. The old Wall Street maxim “buy low, sell high” is in direct conflict with “buy high, sell higher”. Typically, value stocks are less volatile than growth stocks. That doesn’t mean they’re less risky.

I’m not going to argue the outperformance of growth versus value. Sometimes growth outperforms. Sometimes value outperforms. I’m also not going to get lost in the weeds of grandfather of value investing Benjamin Graham’s notion of intrinsic value and margin of safety.

What I will do is point out three key indicators that will get the ball rolling in evaluating a value stock.

1. Forward P/E
I’ve found that the most useful metric used in determining a stock’s value is the price-to-earnings ratio (P/E). A stock’s P/E ratio measures its price relative to the underlying business’s earnings per share (EPS). The trailing P/E measures past earnings while the forward P/E is calculated with projected earnings. The forward P/E is my go-to valuation metric. A low forward P/E is an indicator of the marketplace’s confidence in the ability of the company to deliver on the earnings forecast. The lower the number, the less confident the market is, and thus the cheaper the stock.

Voters in the Netherlands turned out in droves on Wednesday to deliver a rebuke to the forces of populism.

But don’t exhale just yet: Europe’s biggest test of 2017 is still to come.

The stakes will be far higher when national elections kick off next month in France. That contest will pit mainstream candidates against Marine Le Pen, the populist firebrand and leader of the right-wing National Front.

Le Pen has criticized globalization, promised protectionism and threatened to bring back the French franc. She has also pledged to hold a referendum on France’s membership in the European Union if elected president.

A French exit from the EU is what analysts are most worried about: It could mean the end of the euro and the dismantling of a political union credited with preventing conflict on a continent for that has seen its share of war.

The difference in yields on French and Dutch government bonds has widened in recent weeks, suggesting that investors recognize the risk. French bonds have also weakened relative to German debt.
