Hot Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

For nearly a decade, Americans have benefited from a magical trio of cheap loans, low prices and soaring stocks.

It’s been a heady mix of mortgage rates below 4%, cheap gas and double-digit investment returns.

But nine years into the economic expansion, the pixie dust may be wearing off.

The Federal Reserve is raising benchmark interest rates, which means more expensive auto loans and mortgages. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has crept to a four-year high above 4.5%. That’s still historically low, but it means borrowers can afford a little less house for their money.

After years of super-low inflation, Americans are paying more for the things they buy.

Gas prices this summer are expected to be the highest in four years. Bank of America forecasts global oil prices to top $100 a barrel next year. That means higher costs for airlines, truckers, package delivery companies and big consumer brands. Manufacturers report higher costs for steel and aluminum.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019: Insys Therapeutics, Inc.(INSY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Yet in spite of this momentum, drug developer Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) has been an absolute train wreck. Insys offers a broad spectrum of therapies in its product portfolio and pipeline, but it gets its association with “marijuana stocks” through its Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of Syndros, a liquid dronabinol solution — i.e., a synthetic form of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant — designed to treat chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, as well as anorexia associated with AIDS. It also has other cannabidiol-based products in development in its pipeline.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Some people picture rows of cannabis plants growing in a greenhouse when they think of marijuana stocks. While that’s an appropriate image to have in mind for many marijuana stocks, it’s a different story for others. 22nd Century Group (NYSEMKT:XXII) and Insys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY) are good examples.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Insys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY) and Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CARA) fall into the third category. However, the designations of both Insys and Cara as marijuanastocks warrant an asterisk. Insys’ cannabinoid drug Syndros is based on a synthetic form of THC, the primary psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Cara has a cannabinoid receptor agonist, CR701, in preclinical development.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    In October 2017, I predicted that Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) could be the biggest comeback story of 2018.For a while, it looked like I was on the right track. Insys stock soared in the fourth quarter of 2017. By early January, it was one of the hottest marijuana stocks on the market. Then the momentum evaporated.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Friday
    Meanwhile, the United States will continue to meet with China to discuss ways to accelerate a deal between the two nations on trade. U.S. Commerce head Wilbur Ross will be visiting the nation next month to lead the next round of talks. Last weekend, the two nations agreed in principle to avoid a trade war. Here’s the thing… the U.S. government doesn’t want you to know the full story of what is happening. Here’s a look at the backroom details…. U.S. crude oil prices slumped below $70 per barrel Friday thanks to reports out of Russia on its plans to hike production. Russia says it may increase production as part of a plan to ease portions of its deal with OPEC to cap excessive global output. Oil traders have long suspected that Russia would be one of the first countries to turn away from the ongoing deal with Saudi Arabia and the rest of the global oil cartel as soon as prices and inventory levels stabilized. This could be a blow to predictions among OPEC nations, as well as some traders who were hoping that oil could push back toward $100 per barrel.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019: 3M Company(MMM)

    The second-worst Dow stock so far this year is The Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG), down 15.8%; followed by Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT), down 15.2%; 3M Company (NYSE: MMM), down 12.9%; and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), down 12.3%. Of the 30 Dow stocks, 15 are showing a loss to date in 2018.

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    The 16% year-to-date dip in the stock price of 3M Company (NYSE:MMM) is naturally going to attract value investors toward the Dividend Aristocrat. After all, the company now sports a near 2.7% dividend yield, and more than 60 years of dividend increases attest to its history of delivering for investors. However, I think the stock is still worth avoiding. Incoming CEO Mike Roman’s presentation at the recent Electrical Products Group (EPG) conference did little to dispel fears concerning the company’s pricing power — a key part of its business model. Let’s take a look at why, as well as what was discussed at the event.

    Granite Construction (GVA) : “No, I’d rather see you in Martin Marietta Materials (MLM) .”

    While you may not recognize the products they make if you saw them, right now I think AeroVironment (NASDAQ:AVAV), Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ:AAXN), and 3M (NYSE:MMM) are great buys for investors, and could even be called industrial growth stocks.
