Top Gold Stocks To Buy For 2019

April 6, 2017: Markets opened higher again Thursday and gathered strength until early afternoon when all three major indexes gave back most of the day’s gains. Energy and real estate led the S&P sectors, while telecom lagged. WTI crude oil for May delivery settled at $51.70 a barrel, up 1.1% on the day. June gold added 0.4% on the day to settle at $1,253.30. Equities were headed for a modestly higher close shortly before the bell as the DJIA traded up 0.05% for the day, the S&P 500 traded up 0.16%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded up 0.16%.

The DJIA stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close Thursday was Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) which traded up 1.66% at $95.80. The stock’s 52-week range is $57.05 to $93.98. Volume was about 20% below the daily average of around 5.3 million shares. The heavy equipment maker had no specific news.

Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) traded up 0.56% at $83.00. The stock’s 52-week range is $80.31 to $95.55. Volume was about half the daily average of around 13 million shares. The company had no specific news.

Top Gold Stocks To Buy For 2019: Cooper Companies, Inc. (COO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    The Cooper Companies (NYSE:COO) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Cooper Companies has recently acquired the assets of The LifeGlobal Group and its affiliates, bolstering its foothold in the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) devices market. Meanwhile, the CooperVision business has been delivering impressive results. A raised guidance for fiscal 2018 looks promising. Notably, Cooper Companies completed the acquisition of Paragon Vision Sciences. This added a leading ortho-k technology to the company’s lens portfolio. Considering the outstanding performance of the stock, we expect Cooper Companies to scale higher in the coming quarters. On the flipside, intense competition in the contact lens space will continue to build pricing pressure. Additionally, escalating debt levels and foreign exchange vulnerability are likely to mar the company’s bottom line. Also, the slashed revenue guidance for fiscal 2018 in CSI segment is discouraging. Cooper has underperformed its industry in a year’s time.”

    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) chief economist Jan Hatzius has a message for the markets. Hatzius said in a research note on Monday that U.S. GDP has likely peaked. “The current pace is probably as good as it gets because we expect the impulse from financial conditions to gradually turn more negative,” Hatzius said.
    The European Union slapped America with roughly $3.3 billion in tariffs on U.S. goods. The tariffs, which are in retaliation to the Trump administration’s recent steel and aluminum tariffs on the EU, will go into effect in July. They specifically target products like cigarettes, whiskey, denim, and orange juice.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Gap, Inc. (GPS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    GAP (NYSE:GPS) had its target price reduced by Credit Suisse Group from $35.00 to $33.00 in a report released on Friday morning. They currently have a neutral rating on the apparel retailer’s stock.

    Some reasons for my bearishness on retail stocks:

    Higher Energy Prices. Oil prices have rallied dramatically and back to 2014 levels, rising from about $35 a barrel in early 2016 to around $67 Thursday. That’s bad news for U.S. retailers, as rising oil prices historically squeeze consumer disposable incomes. That’s one reason why I’ve been consistently raising my short exposure to retail and plan to continue doing so. Shaky Same-Store Sales Growth. Recent improvements to same-store sales at Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) , Urban Outfitters (URBN) , Dillard’s (DDS) , Gap Inc. (GPS) and Macy’s (M) come against downgraded expectations, and might not be sustainable anyway. No Deal for Nordstrom (JWN) . The Nordstrom family has apparently abandoned plans to take its namesake company private. I had expressed concerns that this would happen. Higher Interest Rates. A rise in the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has recently accelerated. That’s bad news for retailers, as many variable-rate consumer debts (particularly mortgages) key off of the LIBOR. This will likely put a damper on mortgage refinancings — something that many see as an important ingredient for personal-consumption expenditures.

    BSM Technologies Inc (TSE:GPS) shares reached a new 52-week high during mid-day trading on Wednesday . The company traded as high as C$1.34 and last traded at C$1.34, with a volume of 22100 shares changing hands. The stock had previously closed at C$1.31.

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    It was a different story for Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS). The company’s stock fell more than 14.5 percent after it reported same-store sales climbed a little less than analysts had expected and earnings per share came in below expectations. Old Navy has been a driver for GPS, but same-store sales there rose 3 percent, down from 8 percent a year earlier.

    As for individual stocks, retail earnings reports continue to produce winners and losers in the market, with Foot Locker (NYSE:FL) rising higher on its profit outlook and TheGap, Inc. (NYSE:GPS) stumbling due to softening in its core brand.

    We’ll see how other retailers’ results come in. If they’re also better than expected, that could point to a robust U.S. consumer sentiment. Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT), Lowe’s Companies, Inc. (NYSE: LOW), Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS), Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE: FL), and Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) are among the big names scheduled to report this week. Last week saw mixed signals from retailers, with Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) both delivering impressive results while J.C. Penney Company Inc. (NYSE: JCP) and Nordstrom, Inc. (JWN) received poor reviews from the Street.
