Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2019

A disconnect between the best- and worst-performing sectors this year is raising a note of caution to some market watchers.

Recently, the degree to which the 2018 market-leading consumer discretionary sector is outperforming the biggest laggard, consumer staples, has reached extremes, said Larry McDonald, editor of the Bear Traps Report.

He recently flagged this development as a warning sign to his clients. Here are his reasons why.

• Consumer discretionary stocks are surging this year, led by names like Netflix and Amazon. The group’s outperformance relative to the staples, down more than 11 percent this year, is currently near two standard deviations outside the average for the past 30 years.

    3. Axcelis Technologies (Nasdaq: ACLS)
    It is the technical price pattern that first caught my eye with this $800 million market cap small cap.  Shares dropped to a $22.00 low in mid-February but have since been slowly and steadily moving higher toward resistance at both the 50- and 200-day SMAs. In and of itself, this is not enough impetus to get long. However, when combined with the fundamental picture, a compelling long thesis emerges.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2019: Molson Coors Brewing Company(TAP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Money Morning Staff Reports]

    Now let’s take a look at three other big marijuana news stories making the rounds today…

    Your Top 3 Cannabis Stories for June 28
    Maryland voted for a pro-marijuana candidate for governor this week. Ben Jealous won the democratic nomination, and if elected, he would use cannabis tax revenue to fund pre-K education throughout the state. Investors are speculating that Canadian brewer Molson Coors Brewing Co. (NYSE: TAP) may be getting into the marijuana business. Bloomberg reported on June 25 that the beverage giant is considering a move into cannabis-infused beverages in Canada. Though the report hasn’t been confirmed by Molson, a company presentation on June 6 said that it was exploring the opportunities and risks of entering the market. Justin Staples, a former NFL linebacker, is starting a new career in the cannabis industry. He was hired as the Director of Business Development for Revolution Enterprises, according to a June 27 Forbes “I’m joining the Revolution Team at a true industry inflection point because my values align with Revolution’s success in providing Illinois patients cannabis medicine as an alternative to addictive opioids,” Staples said in the Forbes report. When the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement expires in 2020, some believe the league will update its policies and allow medical marijuana for pain management.
    Four Cannabis Stocks Potentially Destined to Soar Up to 1,000% Election Year

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Another red flag came in early May, when Molson Coors Brewing (NYSE:TAP) delivered its first-quarter operating results. Sales for the beer giant declined 2.5% in Canada, an unsightly 5.8% in the U.S., and lost their fizzle in Europe and other international markets, too. Excluding a number of one-time items, Molson Coors’ adjusted profit fell about 40% shy of analysts’ expectations, and Wall Street responded by shellacking shares of the company, sending it to its worst single-day performance in 13 years. 

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    But while megabrewers like Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD) and Molson Coors (NYSE:TAP) continue to see overall sales shrink, craft beer at least can say its business is still growing. While the heady double-digit growth rates of the past decade are probably a thing of the past, sales volumes still rose 5% in 2017 for craft brewers, and small and independent brewers account for nearly 13% of the total market by volume, according to a report in The Washington Post.

    It’s always important to know the difference between a broken stock and a broken company, Cramer reminded viewers, as he compared two companies with similar names, but very different outlooks. He looked at accessory maker Michael Kors (KORS) versus brewer Molson Coors (TAP) .

  • [By Sean Williams]

    At the beginning of August, Molson Coors Brewing Co. (NYSE:TAP) announced that it was tapping into the cannabis market by forming a joint venture with HEXO Corp. (previously known as Hydropothecary). This joint venture would allow Molson Coors and HEXO to collaborate on cannabis-infused beverages, once such beverages are given the green light by Canada’s Parliament, which is expected to happen sometime next year. With Molson Coors witnessing its beer market share declining in Canada, and HEXO looking to diversify its product line and gain brand relevance, the deal made sense for both parties.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Prior to even the Constellation Brands megainvestment, Molson Coors Brewing (NYSE:TAP) announced its intent to form a 57.5%-42.5% joint venture with the Hydropothecary Corporation. Molson Coors has seen declining market share and sales of beer in Canada and is hoping that a partnership with Hydropothecary could yield new products, such as cannabis-infused beverages, that reignite its top line. It’s worth pointing out that cannabis-infused beverages, along with edibles, and vaporized cartridges, won’t be legal in Canada on Oct. 17, although Congress is expected to touch on and expand the legal forms of consumable cannabis in 2019. Thus, the Molson Coors-Hydropothecary tie-up is about staying ahead of the curve.
