Top 10 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2021

Cadillac’s results in the United States are so horrible that it cost the luxury brand’s longtime President Johan de Nysschen his job. Since the brand has little cachet in America and its ability to compete with the successful luxury brands is so weak, the General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) unit’s only solution short term is to slash prices.

Cadillac sales were higher by 8.1% through the first three months of this year, but to a tiny 36,727. Two sport utility vehicles were critical to the improvement. The first was the hulking Escalade, the supersized model. Its sales rose 17.1% to 5,035.The Escalade can cost over $100,000. The other success is the XT5, a newish crossover. Its salesgrew 10.3% in the first three months to 14,845. The XT5 is an entry-level model with a price as low as $40,095.

One of Cadillac’s problems is that it has too many sedans and coupes. Even much larger Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Lexus have suffered in this segment of the industry, as drivers have moved to SUVs and crossovers. However, among luxury cars buyers, who would pay for an ATS, CTS or CTS sedan or coupe when they can buy a CLA-Class, C-Class or E-Class Mercedes or a 2-Series, 3-Series, 5-Series or 6-Series BMW? Mercedes sold over 30,000 of its sedans in the first three months. Cadillac barely sold 9,000.

    Thanks in part to higher oil prices, the average energy stock in the S&P 500 is up nearly 17% over the past year. However, those improving market conditions haven’t taken the entire sector higher. Three laggards that stand out are fast-growing, high-yielding MLPs Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM), Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), and EQT Midstream Partners (NYSE:EQM), which have all lost more than 10% of their value over the past year. Because of that, these MLPs look like compelling options for income-seeking investors to consider.

    Shares of Dropbox Inc. (NYSE: DBX) plunged more than 10% after the company’s forward guidance fell well short of Wall Street expectations Thursday. Even though the firm topped quarterly earnings and revenue expectations, the cloud storage giant announced it would take a large write down on the value of its recent HelloSign acquisition. That will impact company margins in the year ahead, in addition to the firm’s plans to relocate offices to San Francisco, where rents are much higher.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

What happened

Shares of coal miner CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CNX) dropped nearly 12% in early Tuesday trading, before ending the day off by a less drastic 7.4% decline.

So what

CONSOL appears to have disappointed investors with its fourth-quarter earnings results today. Reporting losses of $301.6 million on revenue of $462 million, the company underperformed relative to last year’s Q4 earnings ($34.3 million) and revenue ($666 million) alike. Given that analysts had predicted CONSOL would take in revenue of $605 million, and earn at least a de minimis profit ($0.01 per share, pro forma) on that revenue, investors’ disappointment is understandable. As it turned out, even calculated pro forma and without accounting for hedging losses, CONSOL’s results barely broke even.

In its report, CONSOL management attempted to shift investors’ focus away from its GAAP numbers (not even mentioning GAAP until the third paragraph of the release), and focus on cash production instead. But even in that regard, the news wasn’t great: CONSOL generated $83 million in operating cash flow in Q4 — a 19% decline year over year.

Top 10 Casino Stocks For 2019

Perhaps it is because trading stocks can often mirror the thrill of winning big at the blackjack tables, or maybe it is because Las Vegas conjures images of the world’s most flashy brands and businessmen. Regardless of the reason, it is clear that gambling stocks are always among the most popular on Wall Street.

Luckily for investors, now is also a great time to be buying gambling stocks, as continued Vegas strength, a great recovery in Macau, and overall international interest in gaming have led to rising share prices. What’s more, the U.S. Supreme Court just overturned a decades-long ban on sports betting, opening the door for many new legal gambling avenues soon.

According to our Zacks Industry Rank data, the overall “Gaming” industry has gained more than 27.6% in the past year, outpacing the S&P 500’s respectable 15.9% gain. With casino stocks this hot right now, investors are not going to want to miss out.

Luckily, we can use Zacks’ proven stock-picking methods to find solid stocks in any industry. Check out these casino stocks today:

    Core Laboratories (NYSE:CLB) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “Following Core Laboratories' disappointing second-quarter guidance, we are recalibrating our investment thesis on the company to a 'Sell'. In fact, shares declined more than 13% after the company downwardly revised its second-quarter outlook amid deferred international activities. Delayed activities in the North Sea, Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions as well as the Gulf of Mexico will impact its revenues in the Reservoir Description unit. To make things worse, CLB anticipates sluggishness in the overseas segment to continue in the third quarter as well. Core Laboratories is anticipated to face other near-term headwinds as well. The paucity of deepwater drilling orders and lower levels of new wells, which will hamper the specialized service provider’s near-term results, are other negatives in the CLB story. Therefore, we see the company as a risky bet that is best avoided at the moment.”

Hot Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now

We spend most of our working lives contributing money to retirement accounts but what about taking it out in retirement? If you have pre-tax, Roth, and taxable accounts, how much should you withdraw from each one? Here are some things to consider:

1) How much can you safely withdraw? The safest option is to only withdraw earnings and not touch any of the principal but at current dividend yields and interest rates, don’t expect to get much more than about 2% of your portfolio. That’s probably not enough for most people and that number can fluctuate and may not keep pace with inflation in the long term.

The traditional rule of thumb is that you can safely withdraw about 4% of the initial value of a diversified portfolio and increase that amount with inflation for about 30 years. However, the rule was developed during the 1990s when interest rates were higher and many financial experts (including the financial planner who created it) are concerned that the rule is now obsolete. It also doesn’t take into account that you may have to withdraw larger amounts while you still have a mortgage or before you start collecting pension and Social Security benefits so a steady withdrawal rate may not make sense.

Donald Trump’s energy plan may not actually include independence from Saudi oil. According to Reuters analyst John Kemp, Trump’s promise to restrict Saudi oil imports is an “empty threat.”

“Trump is first and foremost a showman and impresario rather than a policy wonk,” Kemp wrote last week. “Much of what he said on the campaign trail was intended to mobilize support rather than provide a detailed program for government.”

Expedia just named Chelsea Clinton to its board of directors.

In a public filing posted Friday, the travel site said it named Clinton — the daughter of Hillary Clinton — as a member of its board on Thursday.

Expedia (EXPE) said Clinton will be paid “in accordance with the company’s standard compensation policies” for board members.

According to an Expedia proxy statement from August, non-employee directors were paid a $45,000 “annual retainer” and awarded $250,000 worth of stock in 2015.

Board members who served on various committees were paid an additional $10,000 to $20,000. But Expedia said in a filing that Clinton “has not been appointed to serve as a member of any committee.”

Clinton serves on the board of one other corporation: IAC/InterActive Corp (IAC), the company that owns websites including Dictionary.com, About.com, Vimeo, Investopedia and The Daily Beast.

She also sits on the boards of the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Access Initiative, the School of American Ballet, the Africa Center, and Weill Cornell Medical College. She’s also co-chair of the advisory board for New York University’s Of Many Institute.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2018

Patriot One is a Canadian-based technology company that has developed an advanced concealed weapons detection system that delivers real-time warnings to keep potential attackers at bay and to keep the general public safe and secure. “Using radar and machine-learning algorithms that interpret the signal that comes back, every metallic object they’re carrying will resonate with a very distinct frequency and the system has been trained to register the signature of different types of weapons,” said Martin Cronin, CEO of Patriot One Technologies.

The cutting-edge technology created by Patriot One Technologies (OTCQB: PTOTF) (TSE: PAT.V) is available for use in airports, police stations and other government offices. It’s also available for use in stadiums, concert halls, night clubs and shopping malls. Anywhere that large numbers of people gather has the potential for installation of Patriot One’s system. Fortunately for any public or private entity that puts this concealed weapons detection system to work, there are no privacy law concerns “No image is retained. There are no privacy concerns whatsoever with respect to it. There’s no data that’s being retained, it’s simply detecting items on an individual,” said John Gillies, retired assistant director of CSIS, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino has implemented a trial of Patriot One’s revolutionary concealed weapons detection technology in order to evaluate integration capabilities with existing in-house security systems.
Having long been an iconic landmark, Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is comprised of nearly 3,000 hotel rooms, including 305 suites located on 64 acres with a 74,000-square foot casino and 200,000 square foot convention center. The casino property is owned by Florida-based Westgate Resorts, the largest privately held company in Central Florida. Today, Westgate Resorts encompasses 28 resorts with more than 13,500 villas across the United States.
Westgate’s Chief Operating Officer Mark Waltrip said, “With this partnership, we are pleased to be moving ahead and look forward to deploying the product on-site and to integrating it with our existing security infrastructure. Hopefully this is the first of many deployments across our locations around the United States.”

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2018: Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.(NCLH)

    Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) CEO Frank Del Rio tells TheStreet that 2018 bookings and pricing are very strong. Further, 2019 bookings and pricing are looking quite robust as well. 

  • [By ]

    That type of reaction is a bearish signal. What’s not bearish: the CEOs of Carnival Corp. (CCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) telling TheStreet they see no signs of recession anywhere in their business, and don’t understand why their stocks are being penalized.

  • [By ]

    Meanwhile, TheStreet will drop a podcast with Carnival Corp. (CCL) CEO Arnold Donald this weekend. Donald and I talked Wednesday afternoon about his rise to the top gig at Carnival and overall cruise line industry trends. Similar to what I learned from talking to Norwegisn Cruise Line (NCLH) CEO Frank Del Rio last week, I came away thinking Carnival is also undervalued here (stock is down 5% this year). While there are a good number of new ships hitting waters in 2019 and beyond, the consumer demand is such that more ships are warranted. Risks: surging oil prices (it takes a lot of fuel to run a cruise ship) and a recession (meaning somewhat empty new ships).

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks For 2018: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Most investors have probably heard of energy giants Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Fewer, however, are likely familiar with their publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs): Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM), and TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP). That might be a good thing, as the market has beaten up the latter trio this year, sending their valuations south.

    In addition to the Trans Mountain system, two other pipeline projects currently are proposed to move crude oil from Alberta either to the Great Lakes or the Gulf Coast. Enbridge Inc. (NYSE: ENB) is proposing to replace its 50-year old Line 3 system to transport 760,000 barrels a day to Superior, Wisconsin. TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) has received approval from the Trump administration and would transport 830,000 barrels a day to Nebraska where existing pipelines will take over, sending the crude to U.S. refineries and Gulf Coast terminals.

    TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) just achieved a perfect Money Morning stock VQScore, making it a profit powder keg waiting to ignite…

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projectslast year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.
