Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

The tax bill passed by the House and Senate still hasn’t been signed by President Trump. But one blue chip company, FedEx, is already touting the potential for a nearly $1.5 billion increase in annual profits due to lower corporate taxes.

FedEx reported its latest quarterly results after the closing bell Tuesday, before the Senate voted to approve the bill.

But the shipping giant told investors in its earnings release that its annual profits for fiscal 2018 could increase by $4.40 to $5.50 a share, mainly due to a change in how it values deferred tax liabilities as well as the cut in the corporate tax rate to 21%.

The lower tax rate on its own will lead earnings to be as much as $1 share higher, FedEx said.

FedEx has about 268.2 million total shares outstanding. So a possible $5.50 per share boost from lower taxes would translate to a $1.48 billion bump in annual earnings. Shares of FedEx (FDX) rose more than 3% on the news, hitting an all-time high.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

In his annual shareholder letter, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon pointed to data showing a radically shrinking U.S. stock market, echoing an increasingly common refrain on Wall Street and in corporate America. Dimon is working alongside business luminaries such as Warren Buffett, BlackRock’s Larry Fink and GM CEO Mary Barra to promote long-term stock market investment and regulations that will make it easier and more rewarding for companies to sell their shares on public markets.

On Wednesday morning, the U.S. markets lost another stock when European consumer products conglomerate JAB Holding agreed to buy Panera Bread for $7.5 billion, ending the popular soup, sandwich and salad chain’s stellar over-quarter century run on public markets. There are many causes of the shrinking stock market, for instance the administrative costs of being publicly traded and strict regulations surrounding investor communications, but JAB’s emergence and its deal for Panera Bread points to the biggest culprit.

    Shares of Apartment Investment & Management dropped 4.1% to $41.03 today, while the Real Estate SPDR Dow Jones REIT ETF (RWR) fell 1.1% to $90.03. The S&P 500 rose rose 0.8% to 2,180.39.

    In a note released yesterday, Raymond James analyst Buck Horne and team cut their price target on Apartment Investment & Management to $50 from $50, even as they maintained their Strong Buy rating. They explain why:

    Prefacing our comment qualifying the significant economic uncertainties that have arisen post Tuesdays election, we are maintaining our Strong Buy rating onApartment Investment & Management shares while slightly adjusting our target price (to $50 from $52) and net-asset-value estimate (down $1 to $48.51/share). These adjustments are solely to reflect slightly more conservatism in our cap rate assumptions following the post-election interest rate shifts. We continue to find Apartment Investment & Managements risk/reward profile compelling in this environment as its diversified class B-priced portfolio should prove more resilient to supply pressures and benefit from the growing shortage of affordable workforce housing. In an inflationary environment with potentially declining housing affordability, we are particularly attracted to Aimcos price points, demographics, and balance sheet full of long-dated, non-recourse, fixed rate leverage.

    Apartment Investment & Management reported net income of $67 million on sales of $978 million in 2015.
