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 Stocks For 2019

Shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have been surging recently. But one analyst from Canaccord Genuity thinks there’s still more upside ahead for the stock, upgrading his price target for the tech giant to $250. Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley cited Apple’s overall healthy iPhone business and the upcoming release of new iPhone models as catalysts for the stock.

While investors should take analyst commentary with a grain of salt, Walkley brings up a good argument for an Apple bull case. Though two of Apple’s smaller and faster-growing segments — services and “other products” — have been receiving a lot of attention lately as important catalysts for further growth, investors shouldn’t think Apple’s smartphone business has tapped out. Indeed, iPhone has been performing exceptionally well lately.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now: Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc(VRX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finally hit some resistance on Tuesday, giving up ground and breaking a long streak of consecutive advances for most major benchmarks. Market participants got spooked by a rise in interest rates, with 10-year Treasury yields once again climbing above the 3% mark and leading some to predict even steeper advances in the future. With budget deficits ballooning, higher interest expenses on the national debt could have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, especially if it lures investors away from high-flying stocks. Yet even amid the bond-driven downturn, some individual companies saw good news lift their shares. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), Hollysys Automation Technologies (NASDAQ:HOLI), and Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

It’s the beginning of the year, the time when analysts publish forecasts for the year ahead.

Of course, many of these forward-looking forecasts are based on data from the past. For example, one way to project a future price target for the S&P 500 uses the long-term average price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio and estimated earnings per share (EPS) for the next 12 months.

The long-term average is also used to determine if the stock market is overvalued or undervalued. When the current P/E ratio is well above the long-term average, the market is considered overvalued.

This is a simple, but widely used, approach to market forecasting. It’s gained a great deal of popularity in recent years with the CAPE ratio, developed by Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Shiller.

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The Miami Marlins are in baseball’s spotlight at an awkward time.

Marlins Park hosts the All-Star Game on Tuesday night at a time when Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is trying to sell the team, attendance is bleak and ticket prices for regular-season games are among the lowest in the league.

Resale tickets for the All-Star Game, which will feature only two Marlins, are cheaper than usual: The average price is $388, and the cheapest ticket to get into the ballpark is $147, according to TicketIQ, which tracks ticket data.

Since the company began keeping track seven years ago, there has only been one year when it was cheaper to get in with a secondhand ticket — 2011, when the Arizona Diamondbacks hosted the game and the average price was $351.

“Miami is always a low-demand MLB city,” said TicketIQ founder Jesse Lawrence.

The outlook for Marlins regular season games isn’t much better. Of the 30 teams in the league, the Marlins have the seventh-cheapest resale tickets, at an average of $76 per game, according to TicketIQ.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In 2018: Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc.(DNKN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Dunkin’ Brands Group (DNKN) had little time to celebrate its better than expected first-quarter on Thursday as headlines erupted early that noted short-seller Jim Chanos has bet against the company. Chanos said in a TV interview that he has been short shares of Dunkin’ and Burger King/Tim Horton’s owner Restaurant Brands International (QSR) for about a year. Chanos’ main contention: valuations for the two fast-food heavyweights are too high and he thinks it’s better for restaurants to own their own real estate, rather than franchise. 

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    If nothing else, Dunkin’ Brands (NASDAQ:DNKN) investors should give CEO Nigel Travis credit for ever being the optimist. Despite lower same-store sales in the first quarter indicating that a streamlined menu offering fewer types of doughnuts didn’t help, Travis remains confident things will pick up as the year progresses.

    Earnings season will kick into high gear today with the release of multiple reports from three of the nation’s top financial institutions. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co.(NYSE: WFC), and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) will all be in the spotlight today. U.S. President Donald Trump could be shaking up trade policy. However, it isn’t NAFTA or tariffs with China that are headlining the story. According to reports, Trump has requested his advisors explore American reentry into the Transpacific Partnership (TPP). President Trump pulled the United States out of TPP shortly following his inauguration. The recommendation comes after lawmakers from ag-producing states discussed the impact of leaving the deal with the administration. The decision to reenter the TPP would be very valuable to states that produce the bulk of U.S. wheat given that it would allow exporters to avoid tariffs of $65 per tonne to Japan, which is the largest export market for American wheat. Leading nations of the pact, such as Japan and Australia, reacted coolly to the president’s pivot but did not rule out the possibility of American reentry. Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) is still in focus across the financial world. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before Congress two times this week to address his firm’s ongoing data scandal involving consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Congress’ failure to understand how the Internet works and Facebook’s business model was on full display, but Zuckerberg was able to maintain his composure as he answered questions over the two-day period.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Michael A. Robinson

“Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it.”

– Warren Buffett

It’s tough to argue with the”Oracle of Omaha.”

AndWarren Buffettis right: Investor “folly” creates some of the biggest money-making opportunities you’ll find in stocks.

Just look at the go-nowhere market we’ve been seeing in recent weeks. Stocks may plummet one day only to soar the next – all because of the bearish or bullish economic statisticdu jour– but they’ve stayed in a very tight range for close to eight weeks.

When we reach the end of this year, I believe that the tech investors who stayed in the market – and selected the best stocks, with my help – will see that they’ve been rewarded for their courage. Those who spent 2016 on the sidelines will be penalized for their caution.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Bayer Aktiengesellschaft (BAYRY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    BeforeBayer(NASDAQOTH: BAYRY)arrived onto the scene, I viewedMonsanto(NYSE: MON)as an intriguing growth stock. It has a rich history of delivering value to shareholders and continues to hold a dominant technological edge over key competitors in crop protection products, seeds, and traits. While little has changed its promising pipeline and portfolio, the pending acquisition throws a wrench in anyone’s plans to start or add to a position. Uncertainty stemming from the merger provides several terrible reasons to buy Monsanto at this time.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Fertilizers are only one input when it comes to farming, the equipment business has suffered, and seed suppliers are certainly concerned. Perhaps that is why another merger occurred last week between Monsanto (NYSE:MON) and Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY). Bayer AG agreed to buy the U.S. seed manufacturer for $128 per share or approximately $47 billion creating a mammoth company with a combined value of almost $134.5 billion. The $128 per share price works out to a valuation of around 16 times earnings, which is cheap in a market where the average of S&P 500 stocks is trading at over 26.5 times earnings. However, the weakness in the agricultural sector caused disappointing earnings for Monsanto in the third quarter and a downbeat outlook for the future caused MON to accept Bayer’s bid. Bayer bought Monsanto at a low price, lowering the risk of the transaction for the German health care and agricultural giant.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    This type of spin-off is not uncommon among German companies, as they streamline their portfolios to focus on the where they have more competitive advantages in the long term. For instance, in the recent past, Siemens (OTCPK:SIEGY) has split out Osram (OTC:OSAGY) and Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY) has performed the spin-off of Covestro (OTCPK:CVXTY), something that Rheinmetall is likely to do in the near future because its auto unit has reached peak margins, and therefore this is the best time to spin-off the business.

    You can torture the data many ways, of course, and there were some pharma price increases in the US, but apparently, they were not especially large. What hurt were discounting, especially for Xarelto, a Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY) oral anticoagulant which JNJ markets in the US; and the diabetes Invokana line.
