Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Southwestern Energy Company(SWN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a relatively calm day on Wall Street until the last few minutes of the trading session, as major market benchmarks didn’t initially respond in dramatic fashion to much-anticipated news on the interest rate front. As expected, monetary policy from the Federal Reserve remained consistent with the trajectory the central bank has followed for more than a year, and the target on short-term rates climbed by a quarter point to a new range of between 2% and 2.25%. That’s good news for savers, but investors seemed to see mixed implications for companies in different sectors, and a late-day sell-off sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average down more than 100 points. Some stocks also responded negatively to more specific news affecting their businesses. Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE:TEVA), and Chegg (NYSE:CHGG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    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.

    Much of the focus of cannabis investors has been centered on Canada and California. This makes sense given that they are the two largest recreational (or soon to be) cannabis markets in the world. However, one publicly traded company with US-centric cannabis operations has taken a different approach. iAnthus Capital is listed in Canada on the CSE (OTCQB:ITHUF), but is headquartered in New York and incorporated in Delaware. Unlike other Canadian-listed cannabis companies, most of which are aiming to get in on the highly competitive green-rush in California and Canada, iAnthus has set its sights on becoming the dominant player on the U.S. East Coast.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Praxair (NYSE:PX) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Praxair is expected to gain from strong backlog, new order wins and recovery in the energy and industrial end markets. Notably, Praxair’s pending merger with Linde has received conditional EU antitrust approval, antitrust clearance in China and India. Praxair and Linde also agreed to sell additional assets to a consortium of Messer Group GmbH and CVC Capital Partners in order to obtain the U.S. antitrust approval.  The companies continue to work diligently to close the merger in second-half 2018. The stock has also outperformed its industry over the past year. However, its results will be hurt by weaker volumes and political uncertainties prevalent in Brazil and currency headwinds.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018

Activision-Blizzard is Far From Overvalued

Activision-Blizzard (ATVI) is up 54% since we initiated our bullish coverage on the video game giant back in March 17th 2017. ATVI is currently trading at a P/E of 42 by GAAP standards while the S&P 500 index is trading at an P/E of 26. This leads many investors to believe that ATVI is overvalued. However, GAAP P/E is a deceitful measurement of ATVI’s profitability due to the company’s heavy non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses.

In this article, we’ll look at more valuable metrics of profitability such as operating cash flow and free cash flow to show that ATVI is actually undervalued relative to its peers and the market as a whole. Furthermore, we will update our free cash flow-based DCF model to show that ATVI has a 33% upside from its current price.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018: Wynn Resorts, Limited(WYNN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts’ (NASDAQ:WYNN) first quarterly report without founder Steve Wynn as CEO — or even owning any shares of the casino resort operator — went about as well as it could have. The sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn don’t seem to have caused any disruption to the business in the U.S., and Wynn Resorts continued to take market share from competitors in Macau.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Yet not all casinos will benefit equally. Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), for example, derive most of their revenues from operations in Macau. Sands earns 60% there; Wynn, 73%. They could certainly expand their sports books beyond their Vegas operations, but they have so few casinos elsewhere (and Wynn’s Boston Harbor isn’t even completed), it’s only going to be a tiny portion of their overall revenues.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Just in case you thought Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) CEO Matthew Maddox was suggesting he would sell the pending Boston Harbor resort to prevent any “contagion”of misconduct allegations from spreading to the rest of the company, he wants you to know that, no, the project is not up for sale.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now

A new report by MassMutual raises questions about the current effectiveness of retirement savings initiatives and programs in the United States, as the overwhelming majority of respondents, roughly 72 percent, agreed that they are not saving enough for retirement. This is alarming, but not all that surprising. Many Americans struggle to meet their current expenses and needs, let alone save for the future. Perhaps more troubling, was the finding that women were three times more likely than men to report that they could not afford to save for retirement. This feeling of unpreparedness for retirement also appears to be impacting women in other areas outside of retirement savings. In fact, women were more likely than men to report that their financial concerns were causing them added stress, limiting their social activities, affecting the quality of their familys medical care, and negatively impacting their relationships.

Women were more worried about the financial health of their families than men, more worried about the current political atmosphere than men, and felt less prepared for retirement than their male counterparts.  This adds up to increased stress.  The report also asked men and women about the types of employer-sponsored programs that would interest them and would help them feel more financially secure. While both men and women reported that they were interested in more financial planning services from their employer, women were more likely than men to want those services. However, a bit shocking was that more men than women wanted Social Security counseling. This was surprising because other surveys have shown that women are much more concerned about reductions or changes to the Social Security system. For instance, The American College of Financial Services 2017 Retirement Income Literacy Report indicated that 52 percent of retirement-aged women were concerned about cuts to Social Security, but only 33 percent of men were equally concerned. However, women also demonstrated lower levels of Social Security planning and retirement planning literacy in the same report, which could explain some of their heightened levels of concern. Higher levels of financial literacy were related to lower levels of concern about finances.

U.S. equities continued their post-election surge on Monday, pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the other three major stock market averages to new record highs as a group for the first time since 1999.

Investors continue to view the incoming Trump administration and its plans for big tax cuts and spending as a huge tailwind for the economy. We’re also in a period of seasonal strength for the stock market (the oft-mentioned “Santa Claus” rally). And the rally was helped by some positive moves in the energy market as OPEC moves toward finalizing a production freeze agreement.

In the end, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.5%, the S&P 500 gained 0.8%, the Nasdaq Composite gained 0.9%, and the Russell 2000 gained 0.5%.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

The market is filled with stocks. Ever since bond yields went to zero as the Federal Reserve tried to rescue the economy from the mortgage crisis, it has forced people to go further out on the risk curve in order to get the income they had been used to getting from bonds.

Risk is the foremost concern of my stock advisory newsletter, The Liberty Portfolio. Most investors unknowingly take on far, far too much risk. Things are all rosy now with the market 30% overvalued, but trust me, when the correction comes, investors will suddenly learn about risk the hard way.

So as normally “conservative” investors take on higher levels of risk by investing in securities mistaken perceived as “safe,” or “blue chip,” just to squeeze out those 4% yields, they may be missing some overlooked high-dividend stocks that carry less risk.

    Higher rates can hurt stocks of companies like homebuilders, which rely on affordable mortgage rates for their customers. “Nobody trusts the homebuilders past the day they report because the litany is always: ‘This is the last good quarter when it comes to Lennar (LEN) , Toll Brothers (TOL) , D.R. Horton (DHI) , Taylor Morrison (TMHC) and PulteGroup (PHM) .'”

    Next week is big for housing numbers. March existing home sales figures are scheduled for  Monday and new home sales for March along with the February S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index on Tuesday. As for homebuilders, Pulte Group, Inc. (NYSE: PHM) is scheduled to report  Q1 results Tuesday, and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE: DHI) is scheduled to report fiscal Q2 numbers on Thursday. The industry already has seen strong Q1 results from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN), and housing starts and building permits in March rose more than expected. These results, as well as those and the economic data from next week could provide clues for the industry going forward. After NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR) reports results this morning, Meritage Homes Corp. (NYSE: MTH) releases its Q1 results April 25. We’ll have to wait until next month for some of the other homebuilders, as well as from home improvement companies Home Depot, Inc.

    The Industry Focuscrew recently debuted coverage ofEst茅e Lauder (NYSE:EL), and an Ulta Beauty(NASDAQ:ULTA) shareholder wants to know:

    We hold Ulta and have watched its stock go on sale over these months, unfortunately. It was interesting that Est茅e Lauder hadn’t listed them as a competitor. I guess these companies thrive together, then. Both are staking their growth on premium products like MAC, for example. I hadn’t anticipated anything like the decline in Ulta, and I’m further surprised at its contrast with Est茅e Lauder. Can you square the market’s perspective here?

    “I was mulling over just this concept,” Cramer continues, “until we got quarterly earnings last week from Est茅e Lauder Cos. (EL)  . The company’s results seemed like a throwback to the good old days, where you got genuine growth through innovation, share take and emerging markets.”

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) recently held its annual meeting, and not surprisingly, CEO and Chairman Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger didn’t exactly have kind words to say about bitcoin (BTC-USD) and other cryptocurrencies.

However, in a Monday interview with CNBC, Microsoft co-founder and Berkshire board member Bill Gates had some negative words of his own for would-be cryptocurrency investors.

Image source: Getty Images.

Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger aren’t cryptocurrency fans

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett has been critical of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies several times in recent months. Buffett’s main problem with cryptocurrencies is that they aren’t productive assets. In other words, stocks can generate profits from their business, farms produce crops, etc. Bitcoin (BTC-USD) and other cryptocurrencies, for that matter, are therefore only valuable because of investor interest.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Southwestern Energy Company(SWN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Southwestern Energy (SWN) slid to the bottom of the S&P 500 on Friday, on the heels of its fourth-quarter earnings.

    Southwestern dropped $1, or 12%, to $7.35, while the S&P 500 rose3.53 points, or 0.15%,to 2367.34.

    Southwestern said it earned 8 cents a share, a nickel below the 13 cents analysts were expecting. Revenue slid 0.4% year over year to $684 million, edging past the$683 millionconsensus.

    In addition, Southwestern saidestimated proved natural gas and oil reserves declinedby 15.5%, to approximately5,253 Bcfe at the end of 2016,compared to 6,215 Bcfeat the end of 2015.

    Raymond James’s John Freeman reiterated a Market Perform rating on the stock:

    he 2017 production guidance range of 890-910 Bcfe compares to RJ/Street at 892/893 Bcfe, respectively. Capex guidance of $1.175-1.275 billion was 18% above Street at $1.04 and 13% above RJ $1.08 billion. The production growth implies the company is taking the middle road of their previous growth scenario whereby $1.25 billion/yr of capex thru 2018 translates to an 8-12% CAGR. However, in 2017, the guidance range implies 2-4% growth y/y. Exit-to-exit, SWN is expecting 20% growth vs the Street at 14%.

    Southwestern shares are down more than 32% since the start of the year.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Coherus BioSciences, Inc.(CHRS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Coherus Biosciences Inc (NASDAQ: CHRS) shares shot up 23 percent to $13.70 after the company announced plans to raise up to $150 million in a private placement.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Today,Coherus BioSciences (CHRS) lost a patent case with AbbVie (ABBV) that would have allowed for a generic version of Humira. Citigroup’s Andrew Baum and Peter Verdult have the details:

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    The Patent Trial and Appeal Boardjust announced that CHRSs IPR on the 166 Humira formulation patent was not instituted. We remind investors that Amgens IPR on the same 157 and 158 formulation patents were also not instituted. Any at risk launch on a formulation that potentially infringes 166, 157 or 158 would seem unlikely and carries a high risk thatAbbVie would attain a preliminary injunction. It is not clear whether either company could attempt launch with a formulation that does not infringe the patent estate. We note that Sandoz has uniquely not filed any IPR on any biosimilars. Sandoz has not announced the FDA has accepted their filing for their biosimilar adalimumab…We anticipate that the perceived historic relationship of the immunogenicity of Humira as it relates to dose stretching will form a key debate in the ongoing PTAB case…

    Following the decision of the PTAB not to institute CHRS IPR on the 166 Humira formulation patent, we continue to anticipate that first likely launch of biosimilar adalimumab (Humira) in the US will be delayed until 2020, in line with our published forecasts and biosimilar model. We anticipate the open IPR hearings for the 135 dosing patent on Humira (filed by Boehringer and Coherus) to begin in Feb 2017 with the ruling in May. We rateAbbVie a Buy. We continue to prefer BUY rated Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) among the US names.

    Shares of AbbVie have climbed 5.6% to $59.18 at 3:05 p.m. today, while Coherus BioSciences has tumbled 11% to $25.18,Bristol-Myers Squibb has gained 3% to $52.56, andEli Lilly has risen 1.7% to $73.70.

Why do you trade?

It is important to understand the true drivers behind why you trade the markets. The answer is different for everyone. We all have different circumstances, wants, wishes and desires.

Find yours.

Below are common reasons people get involved:

Entertainment Gambling Staying informed about economic and political developments Intellectual pursuit and curiosity Side income Primary income Advising friends and family Professionally managing a fund

Your reasons influence how you attack markets. For example, people managing their own wealth might prioritize account growth over shallow drawdowns, whereas the individual looking to run money professionally will need to focus on risk control. Then you have the gamblers who will undboudtedely gravitate towards penny stocks and out-of-the-money options.

Your reasons for trading also greatly influence the amount of time and energy you will need to commit to the markets. Simply placing trades and having fun without regard to your profits and losses will take a few minutes a week. On the other hand, launching a fund will take all your time and energy just like any other business startup.

    Southwestern Energy (SWN) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today as concerns about a cold spell and a report that showed lower natural gas supply sent natural gas prices higher

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Shares of Southwestern Energy climbed 6.9% to $12.13 today, while the S&P 500 fell 0.4% to 2,191.08.

    Desjardins Capital Markets’ Kristopher Zack and team explain that the “cold weather forecast [is] lighting a fire under NYMEX.” They explain:

    Although oil prices have dominated the headlines following yesterdays OPEC cut, it has also been a fairly supportive week for natural gas producers, with winter NYMEX strip now approaching the US$3.50/mmbtu level, a far cry from last winters experience. La Ni帽a conditions have also been supportive, and we note that next Thursday morning the US Climate Prediction Center will provide its monthly update on the progress of conditions in the El Ni帽o region, which could be a good leading indicator of future weather patterns entering the heart of the winter season from mid-December through early March…

    Temperatures expected to track near normalized levels over next two weeks, which is significantly colder than last winter’s levels. The weather forecast remains fairly constructive for December heating demand, with Heating Degree Days (HDDs) tracking very close to normalized levels through mid-month and particularly cold temperatures expected in the western US.

    Southwestern Energy’s market capitalization rose to $6 billion from $5.6 billion yesterday. It reported a net loss of $4.6 billion on sales of $2.9 billion in 2015.

    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.
