Top Stocks To Buy Right Now

Gasoline right at the highway exit is usually cheapest. Drive a few miles toward town and you might see a 10 cent a gallon jump. Ever wonder why?

If you said “competition,” go to the head of the class. Gas stations tend to cluster around knots of highway traffic. The driver near empty on a country lane has to gas up immediately or take the risk of running dry miles from the next fill-up.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

Legacy Reserves (NASDAQ:LGCY) is a company that I’ve discussed in reports for Distressed Value Investing. While its prospects have improved with higher oil prices, there is still a fair amount of concern about the company’s high amount of leverage. Due to its hedges and a widening WTI Midland to WTI Cushing differential, Legacy’s estimated realized prices for oil in 2018 and 2019 have only improved around $2-2.50 per barrel over the last month and a half, compared to an $8-9 increase in WTI Cushing strip prices. This means that Legacy’s projected cash flow isn’t benefiting much from the higher oil prices, and after its downward revision in production guidance, the company may not be able to pay down debt in 2018 or 2019 (assuming its current capital expenditure budget).

This high amount of leverage has left its unsecured notes yielding approximately 13-14% to maturity, which indicates still significant concern about restructuring. I’ve estimated that Legacy’s assets are worth less than $6 per share (assuming that its C-Corp conversion goes through), and that based on its bond prices, a fair price may be under $4 per share to allow for the restructuring risk.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Square, Inc. (NYSE: SQ) reported its most recent quarterly results after markets closed Tuesday. The payment processor posted $0.08 in earnings per share (EPS) on $283 million in adjusted revenue, compared with consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters that called for $0.07 in EPS on $266.26 million in revenue. The fourth quarter from last year had a net loss of $0.04 per share on $451.92 million in revenue.

  • [By Adam Levy]

    This is going to be an article about how Square (NYSE:SQ) is building out a broad ecosystem of merchant services. About how the products it has brought to market since 2014 — like Square Capital and Instant Deposit, among others — accounted for 36% of the company’s adjusted revenue in the fourth quarter last year.About how each new product one of Square’s merchants’ takes pulls it deeper into the ecosystem Square is building.

  • [By Matthew Cochrane]

    Square Inc’s (NYSE:SQ) first-quarter earnings provided the latest confirmation that the company was firing on all cylinders. Adjusted revenue, the best metric to judge Square’s performance because it subtracts out fees the company pays to the credit card networks and banks, rose to $307 million, a 51% increase year over year. Adjusted EBITDA grew to $36 million, a 33% increase year over year. This strong top- and bottom-line growth was powered by the company’s strong business-segment growth. The company’s gross payment volume, the total dollar amount of all purchases facilitated through Square’s payment platform, rose 31% to $17.8 billion.

  • [By Craig Jones]

    On CNBC's "Options Action", Dan Nathan spoke about unusually high options activity in Square Inc (NYSE: SQ). Put options outnumbered call options 1.5 to 1 and Nathan noticed a large put options purchase, when the stock was trading at $54.70.

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    There’s no denying Square’s (NYSE:SQ) momentum recently. In its first quarter, Square’s adjusted revenue and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) jumped 51% and 33% year over year, respectively. Further, it’s not just one or two products driving Square’s growth. The company is seeing notable growth across gross payment volume (GPV), Square Capital, instant deposit, caviar, invoices, virtual terminal, and other products.

  • [By Danny Vena]

    This will also put PayPal on a collision course with Square Inc. (NYSE:SQ), the incumbent payment system used by many small businesses.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

I love talking about investments that can make you lots of money. But you know what I love even more? Simple strategies that can SAVE you lots of money with very little effort.

After all, even the safest investments carry risk. Meanwhile, some money-saving strategies can end up putting a lot more cash in your pockets with absolutely ZERO risk!

Take car insurance. Despite all the commercials and billboards featuring ducks, geckos, and crazy comedian ladies, I hadnt shopped around in five or six years.

But when we changed up our households car assortment and our premiums shot up substantially — I decided to see what other carriers could do for me.

At the risk of sounding like an ad, the process literally did take just 15 or 20 minutes with each company I investigated. Yet the savings were massive

Progressive ended up being 30% cheaper than Liberty Mutual.

Meanwhile, Geico offered the same level of coverage at 58% less cost!

Needless to say, I switched.

    Higher rates can hurt stocks of companies like homebuilders, which rely on affordable mortgage rates for their customers. “Nobody trusts the homebuilders past the day they report because the litany is always: ‘This is the last good quarter when it comes to Lennar (LEN) , Toll Brothers (TOL) , D.R. Horton (DHI) , Taylor Morrison (TMHC) and PulteGroup (PHM) .'”

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    Next week is big for housing numbers. March existing home sales figures are scheduled for  Monday and new home sales for March along with the February S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index on Tuesday. As for homebuilders, Pulte Group, Inc. (NYSE: PHM) is scheduled to report  Q1 results Tuesday, and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE: DHI) is scheduled to report fiscal Q2 numbers on Thursday. 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. (NYSE: MTH) releases its Q1 results April 25. We’ll have to wait until next month for some of the other homebuilders, as well as from home improvement companies Home Depot, Inc.
