    Warren Buffett prefers investing extra cash for future growth rather than dividend payments, but that doesn’t mean the Oracle of Omaha’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) won’t buy stocks that do both, especially if the price is right. For example, Berkshire swooped in and bought a nearly 10% stake in real estate investment trust (REIT) Store Capital (NYSE:STOR) last year after its share price took a tumble. Does this REIT deserve a spot in your portfolio, too? Here’s why Store Capital’s business model makes it one of the best income-producing stocks Berkshire Hathaway owns.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) has always been a tough one for me. On the one hand, the company has been a great performer over the long-term, but it’s been stuck in a multi-year lull.

In a way, it sort of reminds me of Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS). I touched on this fact a few weeks ago with Disney, in that it was disappointing for recent investors but over the last five years or more, it was still a big winner. In that time frame, Starbucks has been a better operator, but that hasn’t prevented shares from being hit.

Valuing Starbucks Stock

Despite this lull, I still consider SBUX a Future Blue Chip holding of mine and the reasoning is simple. Analysts still expect SBUX to grow revenue 11% this year and almost 10% in 2019. Criticism aside, this is still pretty impressive. On the earnings front, estimates call for more than 20% growth this year followed by just 12.5% growth in 2019.

Still, double-digit earnings and revenue growth is nothing to scoff at, even if the company isn’t churning out the types of numbers it did in the past. Admittedly, it would more encouraging if SBUX could get a U.S. comparable-store sales result north of 5%.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Own Right Now

Thursday was a good day on Wall Street, with the broad-based S&P 500 climbing out of an early hole to gain about half a percent on the day. Concerns about the ongoing escalation of trade disputes evaporated in light of strong performance from the technology sector, which sent the Nasdaq Composite up sharply. Even with the broader gains, some stocks missed out on the market’s optimism. Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (NASDAQ:RRGB), and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE:TEVA) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Wynn loses in Macau

Shares of Wynn Resorts fell almost 7% after the casino resort giant reported its second-quarter earnings results. Most investors were concerned primarily about Wynn’s poor showing in the key Asian gaming capital of Macau, which included a 15% drop in revenue from the older Wynn Macau resort. The newer Wynn Palace saw huge gains, but some analysts believe that excitement about the newer property could be taking sales away from the older one. Given the generally downbeat performance that other casino companies have posted for the period, Wynn’s results aren’t surprising, but they were a disappointment to those who’d hoped that it would be able to escape the big hits that some of its competitors have suffered recently.

    Monday was a generally down day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks giving up early-morning gains to finish modestly lower. Most market participants focused the bulk of their attention on deteriorating financial conditions in Turkey, with signs that the plunge in the value of the nation’s currency could have impacts across the globe. For instance, Argentina had to boost a key interest rate by 5 percentage points to 45% in order to defend its own currency, and in the U.S., financial stocks were generally under some pressure as investors tried to assess possible exposure if the Turkish crisis extends outward. Even with those difficulties, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN), Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD), and Antares Pharma (NASDAQ:ATRS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Warren Buffett prefers investing extra cash for future growth rather than dividend payments, but that doesn’t mean the Oracle of Omaha’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) won’t buy stocks that do both, especially if the price is right. For example, Berkshire swooped in and bought a nearly 10% stake in real estate investment trust (REIT) Store Capital (NYSE:STOR) last year after its share price took a tumble. Does this REIT deserve a spot in your portfolio, too? Here’s why Store Capital’s business model makes it one of the best income-producing stocks Berkshire Hathaway owns.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Although you wouldnt necessarily know it from the relative performance of other banks in its weight class, Farmers Capital (NASDAQ:FFKT) has taken some meaningful self-improvement steps over the last couple of years. These moves have put the company on a path toward better interest spreads, better efficiency ratios, and better growth prospects, all of which should support higher earnings and returns in the coming years.

The valuation argument isnt quite as clean as Id like it to be. The shares do look undervalued on the basis of near-term returns on equity and EPS/EPS growth, not to mention what the shares could fetch in a potential acquisition, but Id like to see a little more discount relative to my long-term earnings growth expectations. At worst, though, this looks like a decent buy that could reward investors if 2018 results come in a little stronger than expected.

A Small Player With A Valuable Niche

Farmers Capital is a small bank no matter how you look at it around $300 million in market cap, under $1.7 billion in assets, and just 34 branches in operation. But what Farmers Capital may lack in size, I believe it can compensate in value, as the bank has a respectable business in Kentuckys Golden Triangle (an area including Cincinnati, Lexington, and Louisville, with above-average population and income growth relative to the region).

3 Top Stocks With High Dividend Yields

Dividend paying stocks historically outperform non-dividend paying stocks, but that doesn’t mean that all dividend paying companies are created equal. Some businesses are better than others, and the best businesses offer the greatest opportunity for future dividend increases. If you’re hunting for top dividend stocks that offer more than just a high yield, it could be time to consider buyingCVS Health (NYSE:CVS), Welltower (NYSE:WELL), and STORE Capital (NYSE:STOR).

A healthy dividend is everything

Rich Smith (CVS Health Corporation): With $186 billion in annual sales, CVS Health is the nation’s biggest pharmacy chain by a wide margin. (For comparison, No. 2 druggist Walgreens Boots Alliance has sales of only $124 billion). This fact alone probably suffices to slot CVS into the definition of a “top stock.”

A man in a shirt and tie sits with legs crossed in a yoga pose as money falls down around him.

Regarding its dividend yield, CVS stock yields 3.2%, which is a dividend 60% higher than most stocks on the S&P 500, where dividend yields average only 2%. And with a dividend payout ratio of only 31%, CVS can easily afford to pay this dividend — and potentially, to raise it.

But would you believe CVS stock is also bargain-priced? It’s true. Valued at just 9.8 times trailing earnings, analysts surveyed by S&P Global Market Intelligence estimate that CVS is going to grow its earnings at about 10% annually over the next five years. On the one hand, that’s further evidence that CVS has the wherewithal with which to grow its dividend yield over time. At the same time, paying 9.8 times earnings for a 10% growth rate means that investors in CVS today are buying the stock for a PEG ratio of less than 1.0 — the very definition of a bargain in stock investing.

Health is wealth

Neha Chamaria (Welltower): My colleague Rich pointed you to a healthcare stock that not only offers strong yields but is also a value buy. Here’s another contender for you to consider: healthcare real estate investment trust (REIT) Welltower.

Rising interest rates and fears of an oversupply in the senior housing market have put considerable pressure on Welltower shares of late. These concerns, however, could be short-lived as an aging population should drive healthcare spending in coming years. While senior housing forms the bulk of Welltower’s business, it also owns post-acute rehabilitation centers and outpatient medical properties, thereby covering a wide area of healthcare. As of last quarter, Welltower owned 1,366healthcare properties.

Welltower has been exceptionally busy in the past year or so, restructuring its portfolio to divest low-return assets and use the proceeds to extend relationships with key existing partners, expand reach in important markets, and deleverage. Welltower expects to take a hit of 5% to its funds from operation (FFO) at the midpoint in fiscal 2018, but that doesn’t include potential incremental addition from acquisitions. Welltower has a strong history of FFO and dividend growth.

For income investors, the recent weakness in Welltower’s stock offers up a great opportunity. Simply take home a hefty 6.6% yield today and reinvest the dividends to earn strong returns in the long run.

Ramp up you income with this REIT

Todd Campbell (STORE Capital): STORE Capital investors have been rewarded with a 23% return since Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway announced it took a 10% stake in the commercial real estate company last summer.

Unlike mall operators, STORE Capital’s business focuses on buying free standing commercial buildings (it owns 2,000 properties) that it leases to services-oriented business that are more insulated against the threat of e-commerce, such as restaurants, movie theaters, and gyms.

It has over 400 customers operating across 15 service industries, and since those customers sign long-term leases containing rent escalators and most of the company’s debt is fixed rate, investors benefit from greater visibility and cash flow predictability.

The company’s 4.9% forward dividend yield already trounces the market, but I think yields could climb even higher as new properties are bought and leased and rents rise. Last year, improving cash flow resulted in a 6.9% dividend increase. Since 2014, its dividend payment has increased by 24%.

Overall, this is an intriguing way to pocket income from commercial real estate, and Berkshire Hathaway’s seal of approval makes it one of my favorite dividend stocks to buy.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018

The Florida citrus industry was already in big trouble even before Hurricane Irma started closing in. Now experts are worried that the storm could be the final straw that tips many growers into bankruptcy.

The problem until now has not been storms but a disease, known as citrus greening. It’s spread by an insect, and leaves the fruit green, bitter and unusable. As a result, Florida orange production has declined by about 50% in just the last five years.

“The citrus industry here is fighting for its very existence,” said Lisa Lochridge, spokeswoman for the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association. “This is the last thing we need.”

Even with that reduced production, the state’s citrus industry employs more than 45,000 people and generates more than $8 billion in total sales, according to state data. If Irma does strike Florida’s orchards, it will be an economic disaster for the already struggling industry said Tom Spreen, professor emeritus at the University of Florida.

For the fourth quarter, the company is guiding for ADCETRIS sales in the range of $82 million to $84 million (total revenue of $128 million to $130 million). In addition to the growing opportunity for ADCETRIS (peak sales in excess of $1 billion) and the intriguing prospects of tucatinib, the company has a promising pipeline of ADC candidates and immuno-oncology assets. Partnered programs with the likes of AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV), Astellas (OTCPK:ALPMY), Genmab (OTCPK:GMXAY), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), Genentech and many more also lend additional credibility to the story.

Hot Safest Stocks For 2018: Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    The Dow utility average ended last week at a stabilizing 639.95 after trading as low as 616.19 on Nov. 14. Keep in mind that a “death cross” was confirmed on election day, when the 50-day simple moving average fell below the 200-day simple moving average, indicating that lower prices are likely ahead. The 200-day is now at 666.30. The utility average has returned to my range of key levels of 635.23 and 670.81, which remain magnets for the remainder of 2016. This week’s value level is above the Nov. 14 low at 620.87. Investors seeking the safety of dividends can trade the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLU) , which is a basket of 28 utility stocks.

    The sector is priced just 11% above its long-term forward earnings multiple, the second-lowest in the market, and last year’s return was less than a percent over the long-term average. The Utilities Select Sector ETF (NYSE: XLU) pays a 3.4% dividend, twice the 1.7% yield on the S&P 500.

    With a little more than $6 billion in assets and average daily trading volumes in excess of 12 million shares per day, SPDR Utilities (XLU) is the top choice to hold during Utilities seasonally favorable period. It has a gross expense ratio of just 0.14% and comes with the added kicker of a 3.37% dividend yield.

Hot Safest Stocks For 2018: The NeutriSci International (NU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Last week — to the day, in fact — Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) announced it was teaming up with neutraceutical company NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) to create a new kind of health supplement that gave consumers the ability to tap into the benefits of hemp. We hailed it as the shape of things to come. What we didn’t know, however, was how quickly those things would take shape. Just this morning the company told LXRP shareholders it was already forging another such symbiotic relationship…. this one with Hempco Food and Fiber Inc (CVE:HEMP).

    Simply put, Lexaria Bioscience is focused on improving the bioavailability of the healthy stuff found in food, supplements, vitamins, and yes, even in cannabis and hemp.

    It’s not widely recognized, but 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, Lexaria has developed and patented a proprietary technology that makes valuable molecules taste better and absorb better in the digestive tract. This platform could be applied to a variety of nutritional and health-oriented favorites, but Lexaria is starting with hemp as it’s the most underserved market and arguably the biggest growth opportunity. Hemp, and hemp oil to be exact, can provide a lot of various medical benefits like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more.

    The future for Lexaria Bioscience is partnerships… licensing its science and know-how to companies with existing product lines and distribution networks that can easily inject hemp

  • [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.

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Indeed, it’s also garnered interest from business partners. In November, Lexaria Bioscience and NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) jointly announced they were entering a joint venture that would utilize Lexaria Bioscience’s proprietary infusion platform and tap into NeutriSci International’s existing distribution network to create and market a whole new supplement product line. In January, the duo announced it had 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.

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    What do you get when you cross a science that drastically improves the absorption of cannabidiol (the healthy component of cannabis) with pterostilbene (an antioxidant) tablet? It’s not a joke in search of a punch line. It’s going to be the health supplement millions of consumers have been waiting for, brought to them by a joint venture between NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) and Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP). The two companies announced this morning they were entering a joint venture that would utilize Lexaria Bioscience’s proprietary infusion platform and tap into NeutriSci International’s existing distribution network to create and market a whole new supplement product line.

    Lexaria has developed and patented a technology that makes valuable molecules taste better and absorb better in the digestive tract. This platform could be applied to a variety of nutritional and health-oriented favorites, but Lexaria is starting with hemp as it’s the most underserved market and arguably the biggest growth opportunity.

    Just to be clear, hemp and marijuana are not the same thing. Hemp doesn’t have any tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC) in it, which is the key driver of its psychoactive — the ‘high’ — response. Hemp, and hemp oil to be exact, does have cannabidiol in it though, and for those who’ve been following the saga of medical marijuana and cannabis, they’ll know cannabidiol can provide a lot of various medical benefits like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more.

    NeutriSci International is Canadian corporation that specializes in the marketing, development and distribution of proprietary nutraceuticals. It’s got a rather wide array of products in its portfolio, but the one of immediate interest is its pterostilbene, as it fits best with the hemp-absorption technology Lexaria Bioscience brings to the table.

    Pterostilbene (found in blueberries, by the way) is o

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Ford (NYSE:F) is known for its attractive valuation, it currently trades at around 7 times its 2017 projected earnings and has an attractive dividend yield of 5.36 percent. It also has a very low price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) compared to most other companies on the S&P 500. The stock trades at around $11 during the time I am writing this. However, after digging a little deeper, I have found that the future looks bearish for Ford.

The automobile industry is known to be a very cyclical industry and I, along with many other people, believe that the cycle has peaked after years of high demand. We are witnessing a downtrend in automobile demand. In March, US auto sales fell 1.6 percent; 1.56 million cars and trucks were sold in March, falling below the projected sales of 1.62 million cars and trucks. Sales are down 1.6 percent compared to the same month last year. Ford only sold 236,250 cars; this is a 7 percent decrease in sales compared to the prior month.
