Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2021

“I believe the future of communication will increasingly shift to private, encrypted services where people can be confident what they say to each other stays secure and their messages and content won’t stick around forever,” Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a lengthy blog postlast week detailing where he sees the social networking giant’s “privacy-focused” future. The missive comes after Facebook has grappled with countless privacy and data use scandals over the past few years, and at face value represents a massive shift in direction for the company.

iMessage is Facebook’s “biggest competitor by far”

As Facebook’s growth has slowed in recent quarters, the company is turning to messaging as its next frontier. “Today we already see that private messaging, ephemeral stories, and small groups are by far the fastest growing areas of online communication,” Zuckerberg wrote. Facebook had already made a massive bet on messaging with its 2014 acquisition of WhatsApp, its largest to date. But Facebook has struggled to ramp up WhatsApp monetization, which it needs to do in order to justify the exorbitant premium it paid.

    No matter your investing style, stocks that no one is paying attention to are often the best deals. Unpopular or lightly followed dividend stocks can become depressed in price, pushing up the yields and creating bargains for eagle-eyed investors. Three of our Motley Fool contributors think Vodafone (NASDAQ:VOD), Hanesbrands (NYSE:HBI), and Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) aren’t getting the attention they deserve. Here’s why these dividend stocks would make a great addition to your portfolio.

    Despite continued strength globally for the material, many titanium dioxide producers have seen their share prices drop by double digits since the beginning of the year. For instance, Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) stock has dropped by 19% in 2018 even though the business is cruising along right now.

Aethlon Medical, Inc., incorporated on April 17, 1991, is a medical device company, which creates medical devices to address unmet therapeutic needs in infectious disease, cancer and other life-threatening conditions. The Company’s lead product is the Aethlon Hemopurifier, which is a device that selectively targets the elimination of circulating viruses and tumor-secreted exosomes that promote cancer progression. The Aethlon Hemopurifier sheds glycoproteins to treat infectious viral pathogens. In oncology indications, the Hemopurifier targets the removal of circulating exosomes, which are secreted by tumors to prevent the immune system from rejecting the tumors. Through its majority-owned subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc. (Exosome), the Company is also developing exosome-based products to diagnose and monitor neurological disorders and cancer.

In addition, the Company operates under a Department of Defense contract through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), related to the development of a sepsis treatment device. The Company also operates under a second Department of Defense contract as a subcontractor. Under these contracts, the Company’s tasks include the development of a dialysis-like device to prevent sepsis, a fatal bloodstream infection. The Company is also studying the use of its Hemopurifier as a therapeutic solution against viral pathogens that are not treatable with antiviral drugs, as well as viral pathogens that have evolved to become drug resistant.

The Aethlon Hemopurifier addresses antiviral drug-resistance in Hepatitis C virus and Human Immunodeficiency Virus-infected individuals and serves as a countermeasure against viral pathogens not addressed by drug or vaccine therapies. In the Company’s clinical studies that are conducted in India, safety and efficacy observations of Hemopurifier therapy have been observed in both Hepatitis C virus and Human Immunodeficiency Virus-infected individuals. Delivery of Hemopurifier therapy can occur thro! ugh the infrastructure of continuous renal replacement therapy and dialysis instruments routinely found in hospitals and clinics. The Hemopurifier is designed to provide a spectrum mechanism to inhibit the presence of certain cancer and infectious disease related particles. Treatment with the Hempurifier lasts from three to six and one half hours in duration. The Company has conducted Hepatitis C virus treatment studies for Aethlon Hemopurifier.

In addition to treating Hepatitis C virus-infected individuals, the Company has conducted a single proof-of-principle treatment study related to the treatment of Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

    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.

Mostly positive second-quarter earnings were overshadowed by warnings of a stronger dollar and weaker profits for U.S. companies with international exposure.

From Netflix to Illinois Tool Works, management was downbeat as weaker foreign currencies meant lower sales in those markets when converted back to dollars.

One fortunate side effect of all this is that shares of foreign companies have become cheaper in dollar terms. When a company’s shares are primarily priced in another currency and that base weakens then it’s going to act as an artificial weight on the price of the American Depository Receipts (ADRs).

Best Safest Stocks To Own For 2019

When your firm is known for its dividend safety and is primarily held by retirees and other income-seekers, the worst thing you can do is cut your dividend. Pipelines were supposed to be safe tollways that produced plenty of cash flows. So, when the oil bust hit Kinder Morgan Inc (NYSE:KMI) hard and the firm was forced to cut its dividend back in 2015, investors pretty much abandoned Kinder Morgan stock.

Kinder Morgan stock has pretty much languished since that fateful day. But it might not be languishing anymore.

Moves to right the ship at Kinder Morgan have begun to work and KMI has finally given long-suffering shareholders what they wanted all the time — a big return to dividend growth. With its latest mega-sized increase, Kinder Morgan stock is once again on top of the dividend pile. For income-seekers, this could mean that shares could finally be a big-time buy.

Needed Cut at Kinder Morgan

It’s no secret that the oil slump hurt all manner of energy stocks. And while the pipeline players were supposed to be the safest of the bunch, it turns out they were hit just as hard. Or harder, as was the case at Kinder Morgan.

    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. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate.

We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline.

In September, Zogenix (NASDAQ:ZGNX) announced surprisingly strong phase 3 data for ZX008, a low-dose fenfluramine that absolutely blew away the placebo in Dravet syndrome patient testing.

    Back in September, drug developer Zogenix (NASDAQ:ZGNX) announced data from ZX008 in late-stage trials that absolutely wowed Wall Street. ZX008, which is a low-dose fenfluramine, led to a 72.4% reduction in seizure frequency from baseline over a 14-week testing period. This compared very favorably with a 17.4% reduction in seizure frequency from baseline observed with the placebo.

You see, Zogenix (NASDAQ:ZGNX)also is developing a treatment for Dravet syndrome, known as ZX008, that it plans to test on LGS patients soon. In phase 3 Dravet syndrome trials, Zogenix’s lead drug wound up demonstrating a 72.4% reduction in convulsive seizure frequency over the 14-week treatment period relative to baseline. This more than quadrupled the 17.4% reduction in convulsive seizure frequency seen in placebo patients.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Watch Right Now

You may not realize it, but the marijuana industry has come a long way in the United States in a relatively short period of time. In 1995, not a single state had approved the use of cannabis in any capacity and Gallup’s survey showed that only 25% of respondents favored the idea of legalizing weed nationally.

Fast forward to 2018, and we now have 29 states that have legalized marijuana in some capacity, including nine that have OK’d the sale of recreational pot, and Gallup’s latest poll (October 2017) found an all-time high 64% of respondents support legalization. That’s quite the about-face.

Despite the federal government retaining its Schedule I classification on the drug — meaning it’s wholly illegal, highly prone to abuse, and has no recognized medical benefits — the cannabis industry has thrived at the state level. For example, Colorado’s Department of Revenue tallied cannabis sales of $1.49 billion in 2017, up nearly 15% from the prior-year period and more than double what was reported in 2014, the very first year that recreational marijuana went on sale in the state.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

My Top Pick for speculators for the coming year is a biotech company, explains leading growth and income stock specialist Crista Huff, editor of Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.

Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) is prominent for its world-leading treatments for cystic fibrosis. Vertex is expected to outperform its peers in earnings growth through 2020.

Vertex is expected to report earnings per share of $2.27 in 2017 (December year-end), reflecting 195% earnings growth. This aggressive growth stock has a 2017 price/earnings ratio of 34.

As you know, pharmaceutical stocks got left behind in investors’ post-election race to own financial and basic industry stocks.

But the benefit of sector rotations is that we get to buy shares of healthy, growing companies while their prices are low.

In December, the company announced that it had come to a pricing and reimbursement agreement with Germany on Orkambi, a Vertex treatment for cystic fibrosis. This is bullish news.
