Top 10 Value Stocks To Buy Right Now

Shares of Seaspan Corporation (NYSE:SSW) rallied 15% last month thanks to a bullish analyst note.

So what

Seaspan’s stock bobbed around the flatline for most of April until an analyst at Deutsche Bank upgraded the containership leasing company from hold to buy toward the end of the month. What stood out was the $13 price target, which was 85% above the bank’s previous one of $7 a share. Driving that bullish view is the expectation that Seaspan’s ability to deleverage its balance sheet and increase the dividend would fuel substantial share price appreciation in the future.

That analyst isn’t alone in recently voicing bullishness on Seaspan’s future. Bank of America/Merrill Lynch also upgraded the stock in early May. In this case, the bank raised its rating from neutral to buy while boosting its price target from $6.20 to $10 a share. Driving that upgrade was Seaspan’s strong operational performance in the first quarter as well as the view that the company will benefit from its recent acquisition of CGI and an improving container trade market. Furthermore, it also thought that Seaspan’s increasing cash flow would accelerate its ability to pay down debt.

Top Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Life has a way of throwing unpleasant surprises at us when we least expect them, and sometimes, those surprises are medical in nature. That’s why we all need to save money for unplanned healthcare expenses.

Most U.S. adults, however, aren’t saving adequately for emergencies, health-related ones included. In fact, 58% of Americans have less than $1,000 in the bank, according to a 2018 GOBankingRates survey. It’s no wonder, then, that so many people find themselves unable to pay their medical bills, and wind up carrying health-related debt to the point where it damages their finances irreparably. In fact, medical debt is the No. 1 source of personal bankruptcy filings in the country.

However, Motley Fool contributors have picked three stocks that look like they have the foundations for such an advance soundly in place: Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI), MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), and A.O. Smith Corporation (NYSE:AOS).

Best High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

If you’re a new parent, you’re probably spending your days adjusting to life with an infant and figuring out ways to work showers and sleep into your new, exhausting schedule. But before you fill up your downtime — if we even want to call it that — with household chores and the like, you may want to carve out some time to develop a college savings plan for your child.

If you’re thinking it’s too soon to start worrying about college when you’re currently charging diapers on a credit card, here’s some sobering news: In 2036, the average cost of college at a four-year private university will reach $303,000. That’s up from an already whopping $167,000 at present, according to projections from investment platform Wealthfront.

Willing to slum it at a four-year public university? That’ll run you about $184,000 in 18 years compared to just $101,000 today — “just” being a relative term, of course.

In 2012, Ti Randall of New York City, who has Alzheimer’s disease, had run out of savings. His Social Security and a veteran’s pension helped cover his basic living expenses. But it took Medicaid to provide Randall with other services he needed in order to remain at home.

“He needed companionship and assistance,” says Ann Burgunder, 69, his long-time partner and caregiver. Burgunder, meanwhile, wanted and needed to continue working.

Randall’s needs have since grown. Now, at 93, he must have help bathing, dressing, cooking and toileting. At this point, “he couldn’t be left alone at all,” says Burgunder, who works as a coordinator for New York University’s Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Family Support Program. Through Medicaid, Randall has the services of home-care aides 12 hours a day Monday through Friday and half the day on Saturday. Medicaid also pays for his incontinence supplies, which cost more than $300 a month.

Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

The Elevator Pitch

Zooplus (OTC:ZOPLY) (OTC:ZLPSF) is the leading online retailer of pet food and supplies in Europe. Generally, in a commoditized market such as selling pet food, the lowest cost provider with the best customer service has the “right to win”. We believe that Zooplus will be this winner, given its structural cost advantage versus its competitors (which we explore below). Additionally, customer satisfaction is extremely high, and we can clearly see customers’ appreciation for the company’s value proposition, as evidenced by the 94% sales retention rate. These unbeatable low prices and high customer satisfaction have led to a 31% annualized sales growth rate since 2010, while still possessing a long runway for continued expansion.

We believe the market is underestimating the long-term earnings power of the firm and consequently significantly undervaluing the company. For instance, the stock is currently trading at 0.9x 2016 sales while comparable acquisitions have taken place at 2-6x multiples. Additionally, we believe at maturity, the business will have normalized operating margins of 8-10%, implying a valuation of ~10x normalized EBIT.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now: Cerner Corporation(CERN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Cerner (NASDAQ:CERN) had its price objective decreased by SunTrust Banks to $58.00 in a research report sent to investors on Friday, The Fly reports. SunTrust Banks also issued estimates for Cerner’s Q1 2018 earnings at $0.55 EPS, Q2 2018 earnings at $0.60 EPS, Q3 2018 earnings at $0.65 EPS and Q4 2018 earnings at $0.64 EPS.

    Cerner Corp (Nasdaq: CERN) is the largest pure-play health care IT (HCIT) company in the world with clients in 30 countries and a footprint at 70 of the top 100 global health systems by patient revenue. The company is the market leader in health systems outside the United States with 28% of an otherwise fragmented market.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Cerner (NASDAQ:CERN) issued an update on its second quarter earnings guidance on Wednesday morning. The company provided earnings per share (EPS) guidance of $0.59-0.61 for the period, compared to the Thomson Reuters consensus estimate of $0.66. The company issued revenue guidance of $1.31-1.36 billion, compared to the consensus revenue estimate of $1.38 billion.

    Cerner (CERN) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after meetings earnings forecasts but offering below-consensus guidance.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Cerner dropped 4.4% to $51.50 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.4% to 2,316.10.

    SunTrust Robinson Humphrey’s Sandy Draper and team contend that “most of the bad news is already priced in.” They explain:

    Although we expect this news to weigh on the stock…we think the market has remained cautious on CERN shares heading into the 4Q16 print given the uneven execution throughout 2016 and the post-election regulatory uncertainty that has broadly weighed on the HCIT space as a whole. We observe that CERN shares closed about 3% below the level they traded at this time last year, while the S&P was up over 21% in that time. The muted 12-month performance in the stock suggests the market rightly anticipated unattractive year-end results and 2017 guidance, which suggests to us that downside to CERN shares should be limited.

    Cerner’s market capitalization fell to $17.5 billion today from $18.3 billion yesterday.

    Barron’s Vito Racanelli recommended shares of Cerner on March 16, 2016, when the stock traded at $51.46.

    Canaccord Genuity’s Richard Close and Brian Hoffman contend Cerner may be “rediscovered its mojo.” They explain:

    We reiterate our BUY rating and raise our PT to $66 (was $59) as the company finally
    appears to have provided quarterly and annual targets that it can meet. Possibly more important, analyst expectations sit near the mid-point of guidance, portending upside potential. The outlook appears solid as the company (1) rebuilds a track record of delivering on expectations, (2) reaffirmed confidence in 2017 bookings growth, and (3) has a strengthened pipeline for ITWorks and revenue cycle. CERN may have rediscovered its mojo.

    Cerner’s market capitalization rose to $21.4 billion today from $19.8 billion yesterday.

    2. Appliance Sale – This is another operating segment that the company did not consider core to its business, so management sold the segment to Haier (OTCPK:HRELF) for over $5b. The benefit: Additional capital can be allocated to the core operational areas.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    The main business units of the Hong Leong Asia are the Diesel Engines Unit – China Yuchai , the Consumer Products Unit – Henan Xinfei (now marketed as “Frestec”), and the Building Materials Unit – BMU. The other business units in the company are the Industrial Packaging Unit – Rex and the Air-conditioning Systems Unit – Airwell. As the majority of the business units namely Yuchai, Xinfei and Airwell, operate in China (more than 80% of total revenue), the continual slowdown of the economic growth in China coupled with increasing competition has adversely affected both the revenue and the profitability. Particularly for the consumer products unit, its small scale has severely impacted its competitiveness given aggressive larger players like Haier (OTCPK:HRELF), Midea, Feilong Electric, and Hefei Meiling.

Investment thesis

Even though recent weeks have been relatively volatile for Vestas Wind Systems (OTCPK:VWDRY) as U.S. President Donald Trump decided to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, long-term prospects of the world’s biggest wind turbine maker still look very optimistic. With several fundamental drivers and untapped opportunities in two future renewable powerhouses – China and India – Vestas seem to be an undervalued gem that can surprise many investors.

Strengthening leadership position

According to data compiled by Bloomberg New Energy Finance and MAKE Consulting, Vestas solidified its leadership position in 2016 and currently accounts for more than 16 percent of all onshore installations. Besides that, the company is also active in the offshore market through its 50-50 joint venture with MHI, which recently unveiled an upgrade of the biggest offshore wind turbine.

Exelixis Inc. (NASDAQ: EXEL) saw its shares make a handy gain on Wednesday after the company was tapped by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Specifically, the FDA has approved Cabometyx (cabozantinib) tablets for the expanded indication of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), which is the most common form of kidney cancer in adults.

The FDAs priority review and approval of Cabometyx was based on results from the Phase 2 Cabosun trial in patients with previously untreated RCC, which demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) versus sunitinib, a current standard of care.

The median PFS for Cabometyx was 8.6 months, versus 5.3 months for sunitinib, reflecting a 3.3 month, or 62%, improvement.

This label expansion follows the initial FDA approval of Cabometyx in April 2016 for the treatment of patients with advanced RCC who have previously received anti-angiogenic therapy.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Ultra Petroleum Corp.(UPL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

    As energy commodity prices have sold off in recent months, so too have the E&P stocks that pull those resources out of the ground. And Ultra Petroleum (UPL) has been no exception. The good news is that you don’t need to be an expert technical trader to figure out why this stock looks toxic here — the setup in shares of Ultra Petroleum is about as simple as they get.

    UPL is bouncing its way lower in a textbook downtrending channel, a price setup that’s formed by a pair of parallel trendlines that have kept UPL range-bound since April. The price channel in UPL identifies the high-probability range for shares to stay within, and so, with shares pressing up against resistance for the eighth time since this price channel kicked off, it makes sense to be a seller on the next bounce lower.

Hot Medical Stocks To Own For 2018

Despite its many criticisms, the Affordable Care Act has arguably been the closest thing to universal healthcare that Americans have ever seen. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the uninsured rate in the U.S. fell from 16% in the quarter immediately preceding the implementation of the ACA, which is more affably known as Obamacare, to just 8.9% by mid-2016. Obamacare is the first health law to push the combined uninsured rate, inclusive of Medicare, into a single-digit percentage.

Why Obamacare has succeeded in reducing the uninsured rate

A number of factors have been responsible for Obamacare’s success in enrolling more than 20 million previously uninsured people. To begin with, the Obamacare mandate for insurers that denied them the right to exclude persons with pre-existing conditions from purchasing health coverage was important. Prior to Obamacare, one of the key ways insurers were able to manage their costs was by denying coverage to those with costly pre-existing conditions, such as cancer or heart disease. Under Obamacare, anyone who wants insurance and can pay for it is eligible to enroll. Insurers can charge a bit more if you’re older or smoke, for example, but they can’t deny you coverage, regardless of your medical history.

Hot Medical Stocks To Own For 2018: 8point3 Energy Partners LP(CAFD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    8Point3 Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ: CAFD) was down, falling around 9 percent to $12.05. 8point3 Energy reported Q1 earnings of $0.03 per share on revenue of $9.9 million. First Solar announced plans to review alternatives for the sale of interest in 8point3 Energy Partners. Wells Fargo downgraded 8point3 Energy from Outperform to Market Perform.

    Wells Fargo Securities downgraded shares of 8Point3 Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ: CAFD) and lowered its price target on Thursday, citing growth/strategic concerns given future sponsorship uncertainties.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

     We highlight CAFD as our top income oriented pick, a relatively safer, more conservatively-run company within our YieldCo coverage. The stock is yielding 7.5% on a FY16E DPS basis, and provides predictable income over the next several years, regardless of new projects beyond the initial portfolio. With two of the strongest companies in the solar industry serving as sponsors, enough liquidity on the balance sheet to fund growth-projects through mid-2016, and additional levers to pull in order to grow DPS if needed (e.g. payout ratio), we believe CAFD is undervalued.

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Leading the charge are two yieldcos — NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP) and 8point3 Energy Partners (NASDAQ:CAFD) — and utility company AES Corporation (NYSE:AES). Here’s a look at why they’re good dividend stocks to own today.

  • [By Shanthi Rexaline]

    If the Suniva noise is removed, the firm believes First Solar stock becomes a fundamental story of execution and long-term share gains. The firm also noted that the company has found success selling off projects to third parties, as intended, with the management seeing more value in selling to third-parties rather than to 8Point3 Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ: CAFD).

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    8point3 Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ:CAFD) and TerraForm Global Inc (NASDAQ:GLBL) were supposed to be two of the renewable energy industry’s leading yieldcos. 8point3 Energy Partners was supposed to be a way for First Solar and SunPower to fund solar projects in the U.S. and TerraForm Global was central to SunEdison’s growth plans abroad.
