Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019

Stocks inched upward Friday after remarks by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen pointed to a rate hike later this month.

The Dow and S&P 500 posted fractional gains. The blue chips barely finished higher on the day, up 3 points and staying above 21,000, ending at 21,005.71.

Climbing 0.2% was the Nasdaq composite, to 5870.75.

“At our meeting later this month, the committee will evaluate whether employment and inflation are continuing to evolve in line with our expectations, in which case a further adjustment of the federal funds rate would likely be appropriate,” Yellen said in a 1 p.m. ET speech at the Executives’ Club of Chicago.

While Yellen couched her remark in conditional terms that depend on economic data, she preceded it by citing a job market that has been “strengthening” and inflation that has been “rising toward our target” of 2% annually.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019: Restoration Hardware Holdings Inc.(RH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Isaac Pino, CPA]

    On the surface, upscale furniture retailer RH (NYSE:RH) seems to be doing a lot of things right. The company — formerly known as Restoration Hardware — has leaned into the upscale market, thereby differentiating its products from the competition. Its inspired storefronts are a far cry from cookie-cutter shopping malls, and a membership-based business model makes it less reliant on blowout sales.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In this segment from the MarketFoolery podcast, Motley Fool Asset Management’s Bill Barker has the unusual opportunity to force host Chris Hill to admit he was flat wrong. Awhile back, when upscale furniture retailer RH (NYSE:RH) made a new loyalty program one of the centerpieces of its recovery plan, Hill found it utterly risible. The joke’s on him: The shift to a membership model, improved cost controls, and a well-executed e-commerce plan have turned the company around, and the shares are way up.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Traditional retailers have struggled in recent years from the e-commerce revolution, and few niches of the retail industry have been able to escape the effects. For RH (NYSE:RH), formerly known as Restoration Hardware, 2016 was almost the kiss of death. High-end luxury customers proved vulnerable to plunging crude oil prices that devastated economic expansion in energy-rich regions of the country.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In this segment, he shares an email — and a scorecard — from a listener who took a bit of a leap of faith. At the beginning of 2017, he opened positions in the five biggest losers in the Rule Breaker universe for 2016: Restoration Hardware (NYSE:RH), Juno Therapeutics, FireEye (NASDAQ:FEYE), GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), and Celldex Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CLDX). True, the Fool doesn’t usually suggest adding to your losers, but as Arlo points out, they were still active recommendations, and he didn’t own any shares of them. So how’d those stocks do from there? Well, without spoiling it, let’s say he didn’t bat 1000 — but Foolish investors don’t have to.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Photographer: Saul Martinez/Bloomberg

A strategic mistake made six years ago by celebrity CEO Ron Johnson continues to haunt popular retailer JC Penney, as evidenced by the ongoing sluggish sales growth and store closings that have made the company smaller—a fraction of what it once  was.

Meanwhile, investors have been bailing out from the company’s stock, which trades in the middle single digits — a long way from the upper 30s, where it was trading back in 2012. 

JC Penney’s woes began with a change in the retailer’s pricing strategy –replacement of coupon sales with everyday low prices.

The old pricing strategy has been popular among retailers, because it hypes shoppers, making them feel smart and encouraging them to talk with other consumers about it. That’s how hype and buzz for merchandise begins and spreads in the shopper community.

Top Casino Stocks To Invest In 2019

Billionaire investor Carl Icahn is all but exiting the casino industry, selling his stake in Tropicana Entertainment for $1.85 billion. But maybe Eldorado Resorts (NASDAQ:ERI)– which will operate the properties bought by real estate investment trust (REIT)Gaming & Leisure Properties (NASDAQ:GLPI)– shouldn’t be going all in.

Eldorado may be piling too much onto its plate, having also purchased Isle of Capri Casinos last year for $1.75 billion and making a small tuck-in acquisition of an Illinois casino at the same time as the Tropicana deal.

A rise to prominence out of bankruptcy

Icahn Enterprises (NASDAQ:IEP) bought Tropicana in 2008 during the collapse of the financial markets. In 2010, Tropicana emerged from bankruptcy protection under a $200 million deal brokered by Icahn, which gave him control of eight casinos in Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, Missouri, New Jersey, and Aruba. The Aruba resortis not included in the current deal, but will be sold at a later date.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

Investors looked for potential winners from the thawing of relations with China, but not all stocks were able to avoid significant losses. Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB), Synchronoss Technologies (NASDAQ:SNCR), and DHX Media (NASDAQ:DHXM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    We saw this pattern with 3M (MMM) , one of my favorite stocks, which got crushed, falling from $177 to $173 because of what the headline writers called a weak consumer-products division. Sure, you can pull a line and see an unexpected decline. But declines do not necessarily mean weakness, which, to me, connotes a failure to have the right product and flagging sales. If you go listen to the conference call, you discover that the weakness had to do with a particularly retailer’s troubles. Sure, you could argue, why do we trust this company? I come back and say, you trust them because CEO Inge Thulin has been money in the bank for years and there’s no reason not to trust him.
