    LG Display’s (NYSE:LPL) shares popped 13.8% in July, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after news surfaced early in the month that the company would be one of Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) next suppliers of OLED displays.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2019

Susquehanna’s Pablo Zuanic and team note that Keurig’s business in K-cups has been slowing ever since it was bought by JAB, a problem that could be solved in a very convoluted way by a Mondelez International (MDLZ)-Kraft Heinz (KHC) merger. They explain:

Getty Images

Keurigs plight (actually, JABs) is worsening, with the K-cup market slowing to almost no growth now, and Keurig continuing to lose own brands share. Starbucks (SBUX) echoed the notion of a K-cup market slowdown at its seminar on Wednesday (and is guiding for its [consumer packaged goods, or CPG,] growth below recent trends), but it expects to increase its share of total CPG coffee to 20% from 15%. Come early February it will be a year since the closing of the Keurig deal for JAB Holdings. The pressure on JAB is more significant if we take into account the high leverage of the deal (JAB contributed one fourth of the $12Bn price tag). It is a tough predicament. On the one hand we argue that to make that deal work, they need to buy more (own) brands either from the retail channel (that can be extended to CPG: Dunkin (DNKN)? Panera (PNRA)?), or outright buy CPG brands (like the entire Kraft Heinz portfolio, and or Tata Groups Eight OClock brand). But can/how do they fund these deals? Maybe Mars and Warren Buffett (Mars is involved in office coffee with Starbucks), private equity, and or 3G can help? While this note is not about Positive-rated Mondelez, we have mentioned before a scenario where Kraft Heinz buys Mondelez and partly funds the deal by selling its own CPG coffee business (~$3Bn we say) to JAB as well as divests the Mondelez 20% plus stakes in Keurig (North America) and Jacobs Douwe Egberts (Western Europe), which together at this stage are worth ~$7-8Bn. But, yes, JAB will need deep-pocket partners and generous lenders. Net, JAB needs to do something soon.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The stock market finished lower on Friday, with triple-digit losses for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and modest declines of as much as half a percent for other major benchmarks. A mix of economic and political news kept investors on their toes to end the week, as fears of a possible attack on Syria watered down some of the potential upside that could have stemmed from solid earnings results from the banking sector during the morning. Even though many investors have pretty positive expectations going into earnings season, some companies suffered from disappointing news that sent their shares lower. Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and MBIA (NYSE:MBI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018: California Resources Corporation(CRC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Friday was a strong day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks finished higher by 1% to 2%. Market participants focused their attention on the April jobs report, which included a drop in the unemployment rate to 3.9%, its lowest level in more than 17 years. Nonfarm payroll gains of 164,000 weren’t extremely strong, and some saw wage growth of just 2.6% as bad news for workers. Yet from many investors’ perspective, weak wage growth is actually a positive, as it indicates a lack of inflationary pressure that’s good for most stocks. Good news regarding several key individual companies also helped stoke favorable sentiment. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Own Right Now

GARP is short for “growth at a reasonable price.” Different investors have different definitions for what is and isn’t a GARP stock. I have my own definition, and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) fits it, and rather nicely I might add.

I consider a stock to be a growth stock if it is growing earnings at a rate of 15% or higher from one year to the next, ideally over a five-year annualized time frame. Also, I consider a reasonable price for a non-growth stock to be anything trading with a PEG ratio of 1.0 or less. If a stock, any stock, trades at a PEG ratio of 1.0 or less, I consider it to be a value stock.

Thus, if I am able to find a growth stock that trades at a PEG ratio of 1.0 or less, it is essentially the value version of a growth stock, or a GARP stock. These stocks are few and far between. But if you can find them, you’re getting a terrific value.

There are also other considerations in terms of valuation. I subtract the company’s net cash position from its market cap to determine its P/E ratio. I also permit a 10% premium to earnings growth expectations for each of the following: excessive net cash position, exceptional free cash flow and world-class brand name.

Top Undervalued Stocks For 2018

Fitbit Inc. (NYSE:FIT) has been in a clear downward trajectory since it hit its all-time high of about $50 per share shortly after its IPO in 2015. In the latter half of 2016, the stock took a huge hit, and as we begin 2017, is trading just off of all-time lows. I believe this latest selloff was unwarranted and was substantially a function of tax loss harvesting. Moreover, FIT has been gaining market sharing in a growing wearables market and has been prudently entering into a number of partnerships which will likely propel revenue growth. As such, I believe that FIT is undervalued and is poised for substantial gains early in 2017.

The company, which is the world’s largest independent semiconductor maker, tallied about $8.5 billion in sales revenue during the quarter, up 6.1% from a year earlier. President and Co-CEO C.C. Wei said on a conference call, “These results were mainly driven by strong demand from high performance computing such as cryptocurrency mining.” Fellow Co-CEO Mark Liu added, “We see very strong demand in the first quarter from cryptocurrencies. During the second quarter, while we do see some weakness in the 28mm chip, the [demand for] the rest of the technology is still very strong on cryptocurrency.”

Bernstein’s Steven Winoker and team consider the implications of Honeywell International’s (HON) $1.5 billion purchase of Intelligrated:

And the M&A momentum continues. As we soon approach the 1-year anniversary of the Elster acquisition announcement, the tide has clearly turned over the last 12 months and Intelligrated now marks the 10th announced acquisition over that time period. It is also timely that the acquisition was announced in the same week that Darius Adamczyk was named the successor to CEO Dave Cote. It has been evident that Mr. Adamzcyk is aiming to culturally pivot the company to seek higher growth and to push harder on standalone software business. Intelligrated offers an attractive growth opportunity, driven by e-commerce and home delivery. The margins are optically low, but we believe that they have been the result of significant investments to fuel the high growth rates. In addition to reaping the benefits of those investments,Honeywell should see opportunity to expand the margins over time. We rateHoneywell Outperform with a target price of $135.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Impending state primaries and an increasingly partisan media landscape serve as the perfect incubators for start-up conservative news sites vying for political influence.

One such outlet, the Tennessee Star, was created in 2017 to “fill a void” in conservative thought, its co-founder Steve Gill told CNN’s Brian Stelter. And now, after enjoying some momentum — the site has amassed 7 million page visits within its first 14 months, Gill said — he is looking to expand his operation, perhaps even to other states.

“If you want to have political influence, you need to be planting a flag and competing with the left-leaning mainstream media in the Ohios, in the Pennsylvanias, in the Colorados, in the North Carolinas in some states,” said Gill, who has also hosted several conservative talk radio shows. “In some of these states that will be battleground states in 2020 and the presidential race, we see a huge opportunity.”

For Gill, everything rests on the premise that “the media works best when it’s local.” While Breitbart focuses on national news, he said, there’s value in covering “the local stories that… are being lost as the mainstream media reduces size,” and bringing in reporters with the “historical perspective” of a small area.

    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    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.

Hot Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

Family and friends lend out about $89 billion in cash each year. More than a third of that total is used to help finance a new business while 6% of first-time home buyers get help from (usually) their parents. About a quarter of those loans were never paid back at all and more than 40% were only paid back partially.

The moral here is not to lend more than you can afford to lose. Sort of like playing poker or blackjack in a casino.

But what about lending your credit card to someone else, either a family member or good friend? How likely is that result in a bad outcome? According to a new survey of 2,253 U.S. adults by researchers at CreditCards.com, more than one-third of the time.

Nearly half (49%) of respondents who have ever owned a credit card admitted that they had lent the card to spouses, children, friends, co-workers or “other people” to make a purchase. More than a third (35%) experienced negative consequences.

Overspending by the card’s borrower hit 19% of the trusting souls, while 14% never got repaid and 10% reported that the card was lost, stolen or never returned. By extrapolation, the researchers estimate that 36 million Americans have been hurt by lending a credit card to someone else.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Concerns about President Donald Trump’s possible impeachment over the firing of FBI director James Comey sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbling more than 373 points. But while some investors fear the uncertainty of possible impeachment proceedings, others seem to be realizing that the possibility of a Mike Pence presidency could be the best possible news for investors.

Political uncertainty at the highest level has always been bad news for stocks. But Trump’s unpredictability, inconsistency and unconventional approach to governing has been a source of constant uncertainty for investors since Election Day. For many investors and business leaders, impeachment proceedings would be just another day at the office in the Trump Era.
