Top Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

There’s a strange divergence in the market that according to TradingAnalysis.com founder Todd Gordon could rock global currency markets.

The U.S. 10-year Treasury yield hit 3 percent on Tuesday, which it hasn’t done since January 2014. According to the trader, this suggests a changing economic outlook that can be felt globally.

“Ten-year yields are pushing up above 3 percent, that’s putting a bid into the U.S. dollar and out of the safe haven currency, which is the yen,” he said Tuesday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.”

But in the charts, Gordon points out that the Japanese yen and 20+ Year Bond ETF (TLT) have just broken out of a pattern that from a technical standpoint suggests the yen could see an even bigger fall. While the yen-tracking ETF (FXY) and the TLT traded together throughout 2016 and 2017, Gordon noted that they have recently begun to diverge and trade inversely to each other.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

It’s no wonder Warren Buffett loves bank stocks.

The legendary billionaire investor has more than 30% of his $170 billion portfolio at Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A) (NYSE: BRK.B) dedicated to this one industry.

The reason why is simple: Bank stocks possess many of the important Buffett must-haves to be considered for his portfolio. First, banking institutions serve an important societal need that will never go away. Second, banking business models are relatively simple to understand, a key requirement of Buffett’s investing philosophy. Third, despite the health of many banks improving dramatically since the 2008 financial crisis, some bank stocks are still trading at a bargain — a key indicator that now is the best time to invest. Let’s examine the basics of bank stock investing, the history of bank stocks, and how to know when you’ve found one worth investing in.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Tata Motors Ltd(TTM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    U.S. stocks have enjoyed years of strong gains, but the situation hasn’t been as rosy for many companies that do business across the globe. India’s Tata Motors (NYSE:TTM), which owns key car brands such as Jaguar and Land Rover, gave investors an extremely tough financial report that led to two days’ worth of severe share-price declines. Yet closer to home, Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) has made a name for itself with its services to enterprise and government customers.

  • [By ]

    Tata Motors Limited (NYSE: TTM) has a significant advantage in its home market of India with tariffs of up to 200% on imported vehicles. A depreciation in the rupee over the last few years has also made foreign cars relatively more expensive and protected the company’s 45% market share in this growing market.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Tata Motors Ltd. (NYSE: TTM) was down almost 10% at $11.40 on Thursday and down another 6.5% at $10.65 for its American depositary shares after posting a loss. Tata was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Merrill Lynch, and Nomura/Instinet downgraded it to Neutral as well. The 52-week trading range is $10.49 to $29.39.

  • [By John Rosevear]

    Shares of Indian automaker Tata Motors (NYSE:TTM) fell sharply on Tuesday morning, after the company announced that its important Jaguar Land Rover subsidiary will cut production after a sharp drop in sales in China. 

  • [By Money Morning Staff Reports]

    Take Tata Motors Ltd. (NYSE: TTM) for example. The Indian carmaker has nearly tripled its profits since 2010 and has grown sales for nine of the last 10 years. Plus, it sports a price/earnings ratio of just 12.6, about half of the S&P 500 average, so you’re not overpaying to access those profits.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    News headlines about Tata Motors (NYSE:TTM) have trended somewhat positive on Monday, Accern reports. Accern scores the sentiment of press coverage by reviewing more than 20 million news and blog sources in real-time. Accern ranks coverage of companies on a scale of negative one to one, with scores closest to one being the most favorable. Tata Motors earned a news impact score of 0.23 on Accern’s scale. Accern also assigned news headlines about the company an impact score of 46.2298115164749 out of 100, meaning that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an impact on the stock’s share price in the next few days.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    While there are likely loads of candidates out there that fit this description, three companies have stood out to me as high-yielding dividend stocks you might want to consider for your portfolio: pipeline master limited partnership MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), telecommunications giant Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ), and mining titan Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO). 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Targa Resources also signed a letter of intent with MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), NextEra Energy, and a privately held midstream company to develop the Whistler Pipeline. While the partners hope that this project will enter service by the end of 2020, they’ve only secured shippers for three-quarters of the pipeline’s capacity. Because of that, they might have trouble hitting that projected in-service date since the project seems to have fallen behind Kinder Morgan’s second gas pipeline, the Permian Highway Pipeline, which recently secured enough shippers to move forward. However, with Permian gas output on pace to double in the next decade, Targa should eventually fill this pipeline’s capacity.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The best dividend growth stocks are those that give their investors a raise year in and year out. However, some companies aim even higher by providing their investors with increases every quarter. Two of these dividend dynamos are Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) and MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), which both should have plenty of fuel to continue increasing their payouts each quarter for at least the next few years.

    Yet in spite of this momentum, drug developer Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) has been an absolute train wreck. Insys offers a broad spectrum of therapies in its product portfolio and pipeline, but it gets its association with “marijuana stocks” through its Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of Syndros, a liquid dronabinol solution — i.e., a synthetic form of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant — designed to treat chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, as well as anorexia associated with AIDS. It also has other cannabidiol-based products in development in its pipeline.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Not to pick on cannabinoid drugmakers this month, but following an 84% climb in Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) during February, there’s no way it couldn’t make this list.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market has been moving sharply higher lately, and Wednesday was no exception. A 0.6% gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average matched well with similar-sized jumps in other major indexes, with investors taking comfort from encouraging readings on the macroeconomic front. Yet even though much of the market continued to build on gains from earlier in the week, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the rally. Express (NYSE:EXPR), Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU), and Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Brian Orelli]

    Shares of INSYS Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) jumped a whopping 40.3% in August, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. The biotech’s massive valuation change came from news about a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), which seems completely reasonable, followed by a not-so-reasonable increase as shorts covered their positions at the end of the month.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

Q: I’m new to investing and have heard the term “blue chip” used in reference to certain stocks. What exactly is a blue chip stock?

Blue chip stocks are the best of the best in the stock market. They are representative of companies of high quality. Blue chips are favored by investors who want to balance low-risk investing with long-term growth potential and income.

Generally, blue chip stocks have a long-established history of profitability and growth. Most (but not all) pay dividends, and have done so for many years, often with annual increases. Blue chips are generally among the largest companies in their industry.

Good examples of blue chip stocks include companies like Nike, ExxonMobil, Johnson & Johnson, and Microsoft. All of these businesses are profitable year after year and have excellent track records of stable dividend payments. Plus, they’re titans of their respective industries.

On the other hand, companies like Netflix and Tesla are generally not considered blue chips. They are large and wildly popular stocks, but they aren’t the biggest players in their respective industries, nor do they have an established record of profitability. Additionally, they don’t pay dividends to shareholders, and most blue chip investors want income from their investments.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Financial services companies rely on the health of the markets to bring them business from the large institutions that are their best customers. With a bull market that’s almost a decade long at this point, Wall Street has never been stronger, and that’s given a big boost to financial information technology specialist Envestnet (NYSE:ENV). Yet as volatility returns to the stock market in early 2018, some investors feared that Envestnet’s time in the sun might soon end and give way to more difficult conditions looking ahead.

Coming into Wednesday’s first-quarter financial report, Envestnet investors had high hopes that the fintech specialist would continue to produce good growth. Envestnet exceeded expectations, and if anything, customers seem to be more appreciative of its services as industry conditions grow more uncertain. As connectivity among financial institutions becomes more critical, Envestnet will likely see even more customers come through its doors.

    Intel’s acquisition of Movidius caused serious headachesfor Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA), which sells image processing SoCs for action cameras, dash cams, security cameras, and drones. Movidius’ Myriad 2 VPUs bundled together image processing, computer vision, and machine learning capabilities, which left Ambarella’s SoCs behind a crucical tech curve.

    It seems that anything these days with the words “autonomous driving” attached to it carries some level of controversy. Video chipmaker Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) is no exception. But the thing is, the company isn’t really in that industry — at least not yet. Shares were hammered after the company reported on its first quarter, which ended April 30, because of further declines in its action camera (read GoPro) and drones business. So developing new chips for the future of transportation can’t come soon enough for Ambarella.

Best Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Bond market decision-makers, including BlackRocks Rick Rieder, have quite a mixed view of inflation risks. Their divide is tied to a puzzling U.S. economy in turn boosted by technology muscle and rising wages but dragged down by high debt levels and global risks.

Sonal Desai, director of research for Templeton Global Macro, told the Morningstar Investment Conference on Friday that she thinks investors are too complacent about the risks of inflation. Inflation, she argues, could well hit 3% this year, driven by wages and proposed tax cuts, although potentially limited by immigration tightening. Thats above the Federal Reserves target of roughly 2% and is significantly above where market expectations sit, she said.
