Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2018

By Emmanuel Enemchukwu with Hien X. T. Nguyen, Chenxi Liu, and Elizabeth Ren

Typical of REITs, the most compelling investment thesis for a Healthcare REIT like Medical Property Trust (MPW) has usually been the generous dividend payout. The generosity of its dividends not taken for granted, our valuation of MPW makes a case for underpricing. We are convinced that $17.20 per share – at the very least – is a more accurate reflection of the future prospects built into MPW’s fundamentals. At a current price of $12.66, this represents a whopping 36% upside.

Reality has played out rather differently for MPW. The stock price is back to where it was March when the bankruptcy proceedings of Adeptus – one of its biggest tenants – sent investors scampering. The entire Adeptus issue turned out to be overblown – further discussions later – but it also emblematized the challenges of the wider Medical REITs space. Nevertheless, we are convinced that an eventual appreciation is certain.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors. We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2018: Ford Motor Company(F)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) traded down about 3.4% Monday and posted a new 52-week low of $10.35 after closing Friday at $10.71. The stock’s 52-week high is $13.48. Volume was around 67 million, nearly 65% above the daily average of about 40 million shares. The company had no specific news.

  • [By ]

    That’s decent news for Mother Earth, but potentially challenging news for automakers such as Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) given the high R&D expenses needs to support electric car roll-outs.

  • [By ]

    Here’s everything you must know before Thursday’s opening bell:

    Facebook (FB) posted first-quarter earnings and revenue that beat analysts’ expectations. Ford (F) plans to shed most of its North American car lineup as customer preference has shifted to pickups and crossovers.  Deutsche Bank (DB) said it was planning “significant” job cuts for its global investment banking division. Investors will analyze earnings from Amazon (AMZN) and Microsoft (MSFT) .    U.S. stock futures pointed toward a modestly higher open.

    Ford Motor Co. (F) will resume production of its F-150 and Super Duty pickups after a fire at a parts supplier forced the automaker to suspend production, which will hit second-quarter earnings, the company announced Wednesday, May 16.  

  • [By Daniel Miller]

    Some investors are still surprised when they find out that the financial divisions of Ford Motor Co. (NYSE:F) and General Motors (NYSE:GM) are among the most profitable parts of the automakers’ operations.

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    General Motors Co.’s (NYSE: GM) Cadillac was rumored to begin to prune its dealer network in 2015, but the decision was shelved. Whether manufacturers GM and Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) might completely spin out Lincoln and Cadillac dealers from those thatsell nonluxury brands may depend in part on the Hyundai experiment. BMW, Mercedes and Audi have the benefit that their sales and service operations are not generally married to those of less expensive cars.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2018: Franco-Nevada Corporation(FNV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ARP Americas LP cut its position in Franco-Nevada (NYSE:FNV) (TSE:FNV) by 35.9% in the 1st quarter, according to its most recent disclosure with the SEC. The fund owned 7,441 shares of the basic materials company’s stock after selling 4,167 shares during the period. ARP Americas LP’s holdings in Franco-Nevada were worth $507,000 as of its most recent SEC filing.

    “If you look back to the 70s, 80s and 90s, in every of those decades the industry found at least one 50+ million ounce gold deposit, at least ten 30+ million ounce deposits and countless five to 10 million ounce deposits. But if you look at the last 15 years, we found no 50 million ounce deposit, no 30 million ounce deposit and only very few 15 million ounce deposits,” Pierre Lassonde, chair of gold royalty and income stream company Franco-Nevada Corp. (NYSE: FNV), told German financial newspaper Finanz und Wirtschaft last October.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Franco-Nevada (NYSE:FNV) went public in the U.S. market more than a decade ago, and over that time, the company has established itself as a major player in an important niche in the natural resources industry. Franco-Nevada neither mines gold nor drills for oil, but by helping to finance projects that mining companies and oil drillers want to pursue, it ensures it can get a cut of the profits. That’s been a winning business model lately, and throughout its history as a publicly traded company, Franco-Nevada has stood out for one thing that it’s done consistently well: paying and raising its dividend regularly over time.

Top Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

Dollar General (DG) marked its 27th consecutive year of same-store sales growth in fiscal 2016. It followed this milestone up with a beat on both the top and bottom lines during its first quarter of 2017, with comps once again growing – but by only about 0.7%. As I was sifting through the retail carnage, Dollar General was one of the companies that stood out as above average, so I decided to take a closer look with this article.

The business

The company’s primary niche seems to come from its low cost operating structure. The majority of its stores are rural, with roughly 70% of them located in towns of 20,000 people or less. It constantly seeks ways to reduce (or at least control) costs that won’t affect the shopping experience for its customers, many of whom are primarily in a lower income bracket. This is exhibited by its low prices, where 80% of its stock-keeping units are set at $5 or less.

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.

A basket of Asian blue chips exposed to outbound Chinese tourism has outperformed the regional benchmark by more that 5 percentage points this year, according to Societe Generale SA.

A bunch of 44 stocks, including casino companies, retailers and transportation firms from Hong Kong, China, Japan and South Korea have benefited from the quadrupling in the number of outbound trips made by Chinese residents over the past decade, analysts including Wei Yao wrote in a note Wednesday.

#lazy-img-327590748:before{padding-top:54.41666666666667%;}

“The impressive growth in Chinese outbound tourism is one of the most convincing signs that China’s economic rebalancing is well under way,” the analysts said. “After a decade of exponential growth, China now accounts for over one-fifth of the world’s international tourism spending, twice as much as the next-biggest spender, the U.S.”

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 2017 up 25.1% for the year, lagging its all-time intraday high of 24,876.07 set on Dec. 18. The eight Dogs of the Dow for 2017 had an aggregate gain of a solid 16.1% for the year.

Boeing (BA) must be removed from the dogs as it was the best performing Dow component for the year with a gain of 89.4%. Its dividend yield fell to just 2.31%, so if you bought this stock a year ago as a dog, book the huge gain now.

Cisco Systems (CSCO) is removed despite a favorable dividend yield of 3.24%, as it had a bull market year with a gain of 26.7%. Book this huge dog gain now.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018: Foresight Energy LP(FELP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    After the recent distribution cut, Foresight’s distribution coverage is over 6.0x with much of the future cash flow dedicated to reducing leverage. It has over 80% of its coal sales priced for next year and its costs should improve as the low cost Hillsboro mine comes back into production early next year. It is also benefitting from cost synergies with the Murray operations. We believe Foresight’s new distribution level is sustainable. With its 15.5% yield, we feel FELP could be attractive to income seeking investors. 

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Foresight Energy (NYSE:FELP) released its quarterly earnings results on Tuesday. The energy company reported ($0.15) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing analysts’ consensus estimates of ($0.07) by ($0.08), reports. Foresight Energy had a negative net margin of 18.78% and a negative return on equity of 3.93%.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate FORESIGHT ENERGY LP as a Sell with a ratings score of E+. This is based on a variety of negative investment measures, which should drive this stock to significantly underperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally high debt management risk, poor profit margins, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and feeble growth in its earnings per share. 

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock’s performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 83.17%, worse than the S&P 500’s performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company’s earnings per share are down 82.85% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock’s sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day.

4 Key Buy-Sell Agreement Basics

3 Ways Alabama’s New Senator Could Affect Agents

Providing good contact center service for annuity holders is more difficult today than it used to be 22 years ago.

Brendan Yeager, a service quality specialist at Dalbar, gave that assessment Thursday, in an annuity service award announcement put out by Dalbar.

Dalbar, a Boston-based financial services communication consulting firm, gave its 2017 Annuity Service Award to four annuity issuers: AXA Equitable; AIG Individual Retirement; Guardian Retirement Contact Center; and Transamerica Annuities

(Related: Investment Salespeople Are Underrated)

Typical annuity contact center questions are getting tougher because consumers can now use the web to get answers to simple questions, Yeager said.

When Dalbar began giving out annuity service awards, in 1995, many consumers were calling annuity contact centers to ask about simple matters, such as account values, Yeager said

Best Stocks To Buy For 2019: Lexaria Bioscience (LXRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    In the grand scheme of things it shouldn’t be surprising, though odds are good at least a few people are surprised at how quickly it happened. That is, health supplement and healthy-foods brand name NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) and the developer of a cannabis-infusion technology — a means of packing more CBD into hemp oil — called Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) have finalized new supplement that is done testing and will soon be available for consumers. The tablet (a ‘melt’, technically) is a combination of pterostilbene and cannabidiol, offering a double-barreled benefit to the health-conscious.

    The benefits of cannabidiol, found in hemp and marijuana, are relatively well understood by the market at this point. Cannabidiol can do a human body a lot of good, like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more. Pterostilbene is the lesser-known of the two components of the new tablet, but no less impressive and no less beneficial. Pterostilbene is known to combat high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and oxidative stress. Combining the two is a real one-two punch for the health-conscious.

    That’s what made November’s news so exciting… NeutriSci International has an established name and marketing channel, while Lexaria Bioscience has the science that makes hemp oil far more functional. Indeed, to fully appreciate the upside for LXRP, one has to embrace Lexaria’s science and why it matters.

    The bulk of the vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, amino acids and all the other desirable components of the pills you take and foods you eat don’t actually get absorbed into your body. Sometimes as much as 96% of the ingredient in question isn’t extracted, and instead passes right through. Not only is it a waste of time and money, it’s a bit of a hassle to swallow a big capsule — or several capsules — for little to no benefit.

    Lexaria Bioscience changes this. In short,

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    In October, small cap food sciences stockLexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCQB: LXRP) was issuedU.S. Patent No. 9,474,725 Cannabinoid Infused Food and Beverage Compositions and Methods of Use Thereof and now the company is seeking to expand this patent internationally. This patent protects Lexaria Bioscience Corps intellectual property related to infusion of cannabinoid compounds in edible products and includes a set of claims that describe the Companys method of combining a fatty acid compound with any non-psychoactive cannabinoid for improved bioavailability and taste performance in both food and beverage formats.

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    At first glance, it looks like it could be trouble for Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP). That is, on Wednesday, the nation’s Drug Enforcement Agency brought clarity to a rule that had been up in the air since 2011. That is, in short, the DEA’s position on all cannabis extracts, including CBD oil, is that they are all federally illegal Schedule I substances.

    From a legal and logical standpoint based just on the DEA’s language published in the Federal Register yesterday, that puts Lexaria Bioscience in jeopardy. Lexaria has developed a way to improve the body’s absorption of hemp oil — which is deliberately high in cannabidiol/CBD — which was perfectly legal and legitimate since THC percentage in hemp (0.3%or less) are technically legal. Now the federal government’s drug-enforcement arm says that’s not the case. The newly-clarified law defines the illegal substance as “extracts that have been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis and which contain cannabinols and cannabidiols.” Hemp, even though it’s not marijuana, is of the Cannabis genus.

    Bad news for LXRP owners? Not quite, for a handful of reasons.

    The decision (which bypassed legislature and overstepped the DEA’s authority, by the way – more on that in a second) is evidence of a long-standing problem the government agency has had in dealing with hemp and cannabis. In simplest terms, the DEA has operated and acted as if it has no real understanding of the difference between hemp and marijuana. They are of the same genus, but not of the same species. Moreover, while the former predominantly contains cannabidiol, the latter is sought out for its high tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC) for the purpose of creating a “high.”

    Problem (for the DEA): The U.S. judicial system has already ruled that the DEA doesn’t have the authority to make such rules.
