Top Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: Digital Realty Trust Inc.(DLR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    This has created some pretty compelling bargains in the real-estate sector. One in particular that I bought more of recently was 3.8%-yielding Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), which in late February dipped below $100 per share for the first time since 2016 after weak results from a competitor spooked investors and caused all data-center REITs to plunge.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP®]

    And to be clear, this quote doesn’t just apply when the entire market is greedy or fearful. As a personal example, one data center real estate investment trust posted some troubling results, so investors became fearful of all data center REITs, driving down prices. In the midst of the selling, I decided to pick up some more shares of Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR), one of my favorite stocks. Since I bought them earlier this year, the market seems to have acknowledged the fears were overblown, and shares are up by more than 20% since then.

    Which tech stocks in particular? We asked a team of Motley Fool contributors to highlight a tech stock that sports a meaty yield. Here’s why they called out International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), and Crown Castle International (NYSE:CCI). 

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Shares of DIGITAL Rlty Tr/SH SH (NYSE:DLR) have been assigned an average recommendation of “Buy” from the twenty-three ratings firms that are presently covering the company, MarketBeat reports. Eight equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold recommendation and fourteen have assigned a buy recommendation to the company. The average 1 year target price among brokerages that have updated their coverage on the stock in the last year is $124.00.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Investec Asset Management LTD acquired a new position in shares of DIGITAL RLTY TR/SH (NYSE:DLR) during the second quarter, HoldingsChannel reports. The institutional investor acquired 145,000 shares of the real estate investment trust’s stock, valued at approximately $16,179,000.

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    Our next company, Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), ticker symbol DLR. This is really a play on data.

    Frankel: In articles, I refer to Digital Realty as the tech stock that no one thinks of as a tech stock. It’s a REIT. They own data centers, which, if you’re not familiar, these are big buildings that house servers and other networking equipment. The idea is that high-tech companies — think IBM, Facebook, things like that — need secure and reliable places to store all the data that’s flowing through them. That’s where Digital Realty and the whole concept of data centers come in.

Top Low Price Stocks For 2019

Walmart (NYSE:WMT) is one of the great business success stories of the past few decades. After revolutionizing American retailing in the 1980s and 1990s, it has managed to hold its own in this century even as so much consumer traffic has shifted to online spending. Walmart stock has been a steady, reliable grower as well.

The Arkansas-based company has dominated low- to mid-priced retailing for a generation or more. Its huge economies of scale allow it to offer consumers everyday low prices, and its distribution system is global.

But the big story in retailing, for at least a decade, has been the replacement of brick and mortar stores with online shopping.

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has the resources to compete with Walmart, and it has an expanding network of partners that allow it to provide a greater range of products.

As a pioneer in cloud computing, Amazon has the ability to develop highly sophisticated profiles of its users and then target very specific and effective advertising at them. But Walmart has been making some smart moves to maintain its position.

Top Low Price Stocks For 2019: Netease.com Inc.(NTES)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Thursday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, and action in different parts of the market showed mixed signals for investors. On one hand, small-cap stocks moved higher, with key benchmarks in that area hitting record highs. Yet the better-known large-cap stock indexes like the S&P 500 gave up early gains. Looking more closely at individual stocks, some companies suffered from bad news that sent their shares falling. J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP), NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES), and Jounce Therapeutics (NASDAQ:JNCE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Industrial stocks have been a casualty of Donald Trump’s trade war, writes Barron’s. In a recent column, the business journal noted that the Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF, a proxy for industrial stocks as a whole, has lagged the performance of the broader S&P 500 in 2018. And yet, over the past month, both the S&P 500 and the Industrial SPDR have been trending upwards. One analyst thinks the time has come for three industrial stocks in particular — Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT), Manitowoc (NYSE:MTW), and Helios Technologies (NASDAQ:SNHY) — to rake in some gains.

    Stocks to Watch Today: HSBC, NAVI, LUV

One of the main goals of my premium newsletter High-Yield Investing is stability. I like industries that don’t go through unpredictable hot and cold cycles. Student Transportation (NYSE: STB) is a textbook example.

Millions of kids must travel to and from school each day, rain or shine. With a national fleet of school buses and a stack of contracts with various school districts, the company generates consistent, recurring income to share with its stockholders. That, along with its current yield of 5.9%, is why STB remains one of my readers’ favorite stocks.

My next recommendation enjoys similar stability thanks to another fact of life — babies.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: NextEra Energy, Inc.(NEE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The company has increased that payout at a fast pace over the years, including 15% in 2017. NextEra Energy Partners expects that to continue in those to come, with it currently planning to grow the dividend at a 12% to 15% annual pace through 2022. Powering that growth will be a combination of acquisitions both from its parent companyNextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) and third parties, as well as organic expansion projects. Although, drop-down transactions from NextEra Energy’s vast portfolio of renewable assets alone can easily support the company’s growth forecast. Because of that, investors have the opportunity to earn total annual returns in the 16% to 19% range when adding the distribution growth rate to the current yield. That outlook positions NextEra Energy Partners to continue delivering market-beating returns, which is something it has done since NextEra took it public in 2014.

Best Biotech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Introduction

ContraVir Pharmaceuticals (CTRV) is a clinical-stage biotech company focused on the development of small-molecule antivirals for Chronic Hepatitis B. ContraVir has developed a strong Hepatitis B pipeline consisting of two small-molecule antiviral agents. With a novel cyclophilin inhibitor and a next-generation reverse transcriptase inhibitor, ContraVir hopes to become the first drug company to bring the first-of-its-kind antiviral combination therapy to the market for the treatment of Hepatitis B. Unlike Hepatitis C or HIV, a small-molecule antiviral combination therapy regimen has not yet been developed for Hepatitis B. ContraVir believes that if approved by the FDA, their small-molecule multi-antiviral agent combination therapy approach can lead to a dramatic therapeutic improvement over the current standard of care. Furthermore, the market has disregarded that ContraVir’s drug candidates can also be utilized for the potential treatment of other diseases and conditions including HIV-1. With the market ignoring their full potential, ContraVir’s stock price has continued to fall to all-time lows. Due to the collapse in stock price that began well over a year ago, ContraVir is now faced with a very low market cap and a NASDAQ price listing requirement violation. Despite their short-term troubles, ContraVir can be an excellent investment opportunity for those willing to take a speculative risk now or those willing to play it safer by waiting out the storm.

Hot Performing Stocks For 2018

Very few hedge fund managers start with $2 billion from investor George Soros. One who did, Scott Bessent, has already given much of it back.

As Bessent has gathered capital since his firm’s 2016 launch, he has returned Soros’s money as part of an arrangement between the two, according to a person familiar with Soros’s family office who requested anonymity. Soros had $853 million remaining in a managed account at Key Square Group at the end of 2017, according to a March regulatory filing.

Bessent, who established a strong track record as the chief investment officer at Soros Fund Management, has gathered assets at Key Square while mostly outperforming rival macro managers. The New York-based firm had assets of about $5.1 billion at the end of last year, according to a filing.

“Soros is a very visible name,” said Richard Klitzberg, whose namesake firm helps hedge funds find investors. “If you are running money for him and you are putting up good numbers, everybody in the world wants a piece of you.”
