We welcome host of Fox Business Network’s Making Money with Charles Payne to this year’s contest. When he’s not on air, the rags-to-riches financial guru is editing his free weekly newsletter, Charles Payne’s Smart Talk, as well as his new newsletter, Charles Payne’sSmart Investing, which allows individuals insights into picks that were formerly only available to institutions.
Payne is going with the owner, operator and franchiser of a wildly popular sports and wings bar for this year’s pick: Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD).
With commodities prices in the dumps, BWLD stands to benefit as Americans have more cash lining their pockets thanks to lower gas prices. That’s cash, Charles reasons, that Buffalo Wild Wings will be able to claim a chunk of. Not to mention the fact that if chicken prices remain subdued, it’ll mean a beefier bottom line.

Best Growth Stocks To Invest In 2019: Nordstrom Inc.(JWN)
- [By Dan Caplinger]
The retail industry has gone through tough times lately, and things have been especially difficult for high-end retailers like Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN). As shoppers become more comfortable with online shopping, department stores with substantial brick-and-mortar assets have had to adapt to changes in consumer behavior and meet them on their own terms, and that’s been a difficult proposition for a company that prides itself on one-on-one customer service in the store setting.

Nordstrom (JWN) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after getting downgraded at JPMorgan.
Nordstrom dropped 8.7% to $50.48 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.2% to 2,258.07.
JPMorgan’s Matthew Boss and team explain why they cut Nordstrom to Underweight from Neutral today:
Nordstroms top-line profile has moderated to low-to-mid single digits with mgmt citing tighter expense control as a near-term fix rather than long term model solution clarifying its mid-teens ROIC target as more an aspiration rather than near-term reality. Cutting FY18 EPS power to $3.00 (< Street at $3.27) based on flattish same-store sales the next two years (negative low-single digits Full-line offset by +LSD Rack) and modest SG&A deleverage (initial Manhattan pressure in FY17 building into FY18) partially offset by slight GPM expansion. With shares ofNordstrom up 57% the past 6 months (vs S&P 500 +13%), we downgrade to Underweight, lowering our price target to $48 based on 6.0x our 18 EBITDA (= 16.5x FY18 EPS).
Nordstrom’s market capitalization fell to $8.8 today from $9.6 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $600 million on sales of $14.4 billion in fiscal 2016.
Barron’s Johanna Bennett also panned Nordstrom today.

After several years of being a Wall Street darling, Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) has fallen out of favor since 2015 as it has been hit by some of the same negative trends that have hurt the department store sector as a whole.

For dividend investors wanting a solid yield, Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), and Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) look like solid choices. None is risk-free, particularly Nordstrom, which is in an extremely competitive industry. But all three offer dividend yields above 3% and a least a few reasons to be optimistic about the company.
