Best Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now

U.S. home prices are on a roll. And as we head into the New Year, I am expecting another record year for home prices in 2018. Today, I am going to reveal the safest, easiest and most profitable way to benefit from this trend.

Fueled by record-low interest rates and housing inventories, home prices in the United States hit another all-time high in 2017.

The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-City Composite Home Price NSA (SPCS20) Index measures the value of residential real estate in 20 major U.S. metropolitan areas, including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago. The most recent update showed that the index expanded 6.1% to 203 in August, breaking the previous all-time high of 198 from July of 2007. Take a look below.

SPCS20 Index Level Since July 2007

Looking forward, I am expecting another record year. Not only will interest rates remain relatively low, but I see no short-term solution to historically low housing inventories.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018: Humana Inc.(HUM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The stock posting the largest daily percentage gain in the S&P 500 ahead of the close Monday was Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) which rose over 4% to $280.36. The stocks 52-week range is $206.68 to $293.35. Volume was 3.2 million compared to the daily average volume of 1.1 million.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Late Thursday, reports began to trickle in that retail behemoth Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) was in preliminary negotiations to acquire health insurer Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM). Humana’s market cap of around $37 billion makes this a very big deal, even if the talks result in some sort of partnership between the two firms.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    A low EV-to-EBITDA measurement is a pretty good indicator that a stock is relatively cheap. And there are three healthcare stocks that are undeniably dirt cheap right now based on the metric: United Therapeutics (NASDAQ:UTHR), Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD), and Humana (NYSE:HUM). But are these cheap stocks smart picks to buy?

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Media headlines about Humana (NYSE:HUM) have been trending somewhat positive on Saturday, Accern Sentiment reports. Accern identifies positive and negative press coverage by monitoring more than 20 million blog and news sources in real-time. Accern ranks coverage of public companies on a scale of negative one to positive one, with scores closest to one being the most favorable. Humana earned a daily sentiment score of 0.14 on Accern’s scale. Accern also assigned media coverage about the insurance provider an impact score of 47.3369901462853 out of 100, meaning that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an impact on the company’s share price in the near term.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018

Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE:TAP) has been underperforming peers since October 2016, or since the remaining purchase of Miller Coors was announced. In my point of view, it is only a matter of time until the market rewards managements effort to drive shareholder value, and 2018 could be that year. Shares declined by more than 30% since its peak and now trade at a reasonable valuation of 16 price-to-forward looking earnings, and at a significant discount compared to Heinekens (OTCQX:HEINY) price-to-forward looking earnings of 21 and Anheuser-Busch InBev’s (NYSE:BUD) 21.

Management is focusing on debt reduction and managing the product mix better to increase profitability. Earnings from the recent quarter prove that management is capable of increasing efficiency, and because the company generates significant free cash flow, the debt repayments towards a more sustainable level should not be a problem. Hence, I think Molson Coors will catch up with peers valuation.

From a technical perspective, the best entry would be in the low $70s, 10% lower compared to the current price, but the likelihood that the price reaches that level is not that high. Hence, the good strategy could be to use the recent sell-off and start allocating shares, and if the price reaches $70, then to increase the position and benefit from historical bullish price action around that level.

Lam Researchgained 6.9% to $136.17 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 2,338.17.

Credit Suisse analysts Farhan Ahmad and John Pitzer and argues that Lam Research’s “new trough is higher than [its] old peak.” They explain:

We expect that bears will continue to argue that CY17 is a “Peak” year; however we think that investors are missing that it now costs >2x more to get incremental bit growth than three years ago. It is noteworthy that despite ~$17bn of memory WFE in 2016 both NAND and DRAM markets went from oversupply to undersupply – implying that new trough for memory investments is even higher than old peak (2010 memory peak had WFE of $12.6bn). We view Semi Growth, rising capital intensity, and growing China CapEx as secular multiyear themes, which could continue to provide growth in coming years. In addition, in case of tax reform there could be potential to return >$50 per share to shareholders by 2020…Increase TP to $160 (from $143), based on 12x of CY18 EPS plus net cash adj for taxes.
