Investors seemed reasonably neutral about events in Singapore, where leaders from the U.S. and North Korea met and came to some minor agreements that viewed in the most favorable light could provide a road map for future negotiations.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

The year 2018 has been volatile for the markets. Stocks rapidly climbed to record territory early in the year before finally posting a long-awaited correction. And the energy market has seen a dramatic rise in oil prices that’s helped to bolster prospects for oil and natural gas related companies. Yet for conservative investors, one popular investment that most see as being particularly safe has turned out to be a big loser, and that’s forcing many people — especially retirees — to reconsider how they invest more broadly.

Retirees and those approaching the end of their careers often are advised to reduce stock market exposure. Instead, many end up putting larger percentages of their savings into fixed-income investments like Treasury bonds. Although Treasuries are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, making them the safest dollar-denominated debt instruments on the planet, they are far from risk-free. As many retirees are learning the hard way in 2018, Treasury bonds can lose money, and current trends suggest that those tough times could continue.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

Main thesis

I believe that Tuesday Morning (NASDAQ: TUES) is a potential turnaround situation with high upside and limited downside.

Business

According to their 10k,

We are a true closeout retailer, selling high-quality products at prices below those found in boutique, specialty and department stores. Our customers come to us for an ever-changing, exceptional assortment of brand names at great prices. Basically, they purchase items at a very low price from different sources and they sell it below retail.

What makes it interesting

Niche that is likely to be undisturbed by the ecommerce disruption right now Little debt ($30 million from accessing credit facility) with continued access to capital markets Increasing revenue despite industry headwinds, which means that the problem is likely to be internal. Insider buy in Concrete turnaround plan that could work (some of them are already working)

What I think the rest of the market missed

Only 1 analyst covering (according to yahoo finance) Niche presence in a market filled with big names Overall decrease in interest in the traditional brick and mortar retail sector Boring niche with little or no growth

Hot Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    One biopharmaceutical player that’s rapidly moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade is GTx (GTXI), which is dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecules that selectively target hormone pathways to treat cancer, osteoporosis and bone loss, muscle loss and other serious medical condition. This stock has been hammered by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 53%.

    If you look at the chart for GTx, you’ll notice that this stock recently gapped down sharply from over $4 to below $1.50 a share with heavy downside volume. Following that gap down, shares of GTXI have rebounded sharply and started to uptrend, with the stock moving higher from its low of $1.31 to its recent high of $1.96 a share. During that move, shares of GTXI have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of GTXI within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GTXI if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $1.96 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 1.35 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GTXI will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from August that started just above $4 a share. Some possible upside targets if GTXI gets into that gap with volume are $2.50 to $3 a share, or possibly even $3.50 a share.

    Traders can look to buy GTXI off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support at $1.50 a share. One can also buy GTXI off strength once it takes out $1.96 a share with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

On the supply side, it has been great to see LAC, Pilbara Minerals (OTCPK:PILBF) and Altura Mining (OTCPK:ALTAF) get funding, but the continued issues with Albemarle’s (NYSE:ALB) LaNegra II expansion and Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF) ramping up to Phase 1 capacity of 17,500 tonnes/year of lithium carbonate are further evidence that lithium projects take time and have considerable execution risk.

Top Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

As gaming regulators around the country and the world delve into the misconduct allegations against Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) founder and former CEO Steve Wynn, the casino operator has said it is definitely considering renaming the Wynn Boston Harbor resort — its building in Everett, Massachusetts — to ensure it can retain its license to operate the casino. The time may have come when the entire company needs a rebranding.

It’s clear the Wynn name has been tainted by the allegations. Public opinion — and that of regulators and legislators — is important. With tens of billions of dollars in global licensing at risk, Wynn Resorts may have little choice but the rebrand the Boston Harbor resort.

The name means a lot

It’s a dual-edged sword, though. As the resort operator has detailed in its SEC filings, the company name, and in particular the company logo (which is Steve Wynn’s signature), are among its most valuable assets.

Top Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019: Alaska Air Group, Inc.(ALK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last year, a potential solution appeared when Alaska Air (NYSE:ALK) acquired Virgin America, which is the only other commercial airline at Love Field, whereas Alaska Airlines flies to nearby Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). It seemed plausible that Alaska would consolidate its Dallas-area operations at DFW, the region’s main airport.

    Friday was a topsy-turvy day on Wall Street, and major benchmarks eventually finished broadly lower on the day. After starting the session slightly higher, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell nearly 1% at its worst point, and other indexes saw similar percentage losses. Earnings season got off to a reasonably good start as major U.S. banks reported their quarterly results, but the numbers weren’t necessarily as strong as some had hoped to see. Even with uncertainty going into the weekend, some individual companies celebrated good news. Alaska Air Group (NYSE:ALK), Pulse Biosciences (NASDAQ:PLSE), and BJ’s Restaurants (NASDAQ:BJRI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019: Sociedad Quimica y Minera S.A.(SQM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Most investors interested in gaining exposure to the lithium space should stick with investing in one or more of the large players listed on a major U.S. stock exchange:Albemarle Corporation(NYSE:ALB), FMC Corp.

    It should be noted that FMC Corp together with Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) and Chiles Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM) forma so-called lithium oligopoly that tends to dominate global production. A recent Bloomberg article noted that Albemarle Chief Executive Officer Luke Kissam had said in March that hes also eager to see how the value settles for the FMC lithium spinoff. Iftheprice-to-earnings ratio is high enough,then they would look to create a pure-play lithium business byselling off non-lithium units. If FMC Corp and Albemarle Corporation do end upcompletingthese spin-offs, thatwill be good news for the valuations of all lithium players as the market will put clear valuation numbers onthese larger pure play lithium businesses which will help provide valuation benchmarks for other small cap lithium players.

Top Heal Care Stocks For 2018: Just Hold Your Nose and Dive Into Under Armour Inc (UAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Yesterday, shares of Under Armour (UAA) surged 9.9% as investors cheered its better-than-expected earnings. Baird’s Jonathan Komp and Benjamin Bray, however, note that the Bull-Bear debate around Under Armour is far from over. And remember, this is coming from a pair of bulls.

    Jeff Schear/Getty Images for Under Armour

    So why do Komp and Bray warn investors not to make too much of yesterday’s big gain? I’ll let them explain:

    We are encouraged that UA delivered on Q1 targets (profit upside timing-driven), but view todays ~9% gain as a sign sentiment had moved too negative, and not that current bear arguments are resolved. We think the lowered Q2 bar probably de-risks the near-term outlook, setting up the planned 2H acceleration as a key proof point on whether UA can successfully shift its product/positioning. We are staying the course, and will seek opportunities (hopefully during 2H) to raise our conviction level.

    That aligns nicely with the view of Cowen’s John Kernan, who argued that short-covering was responsible for a big chunk of yesterday’s move.

    Shares of Under Armour have declined 0.3% to $21.61 at 1:57 p.m. today.

    Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) is set to release its most recent quarterly results Tuesday. The consensus forecast calls for breakeven earnings and $1.31 billion in revenue. Shares ended the week at $13.75. The consensus price target is $13.08, and the 52-week range is $11.40 to $23.46.

Top Heal Care Stocks For 2018: Cummins Inc.(CMI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Making mining equipment has been a horrible business over the last few years. The industry has been hard-hit by the spending cutbacks at mine sites around the world. For example, BHP Billiton Limited trimmed its capital exploration expenditures by roughly 70% between fiscal 2013 and 2016. No wonder Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Komatsu Ltd. (NASDAQOTH:KMTUY), and Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) have been hurting. Only that looks like it’s starting to change, which means this trio could be at the top of a list of mining equipment companies to buy in 2017.

    Ever walk past a construction site? It’s hard not to be enthralled by all the heavy construction machinery moving things around. With the world’s developing economies still building at a relatively fast pace and developing economies, like the United States, in desperate need of upgrading their aging infrastructure, the companies behind that construction machinery could be just as exciting as a construction site in the years ahead. Which is why Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), and Terex Corporation (NYSE:TEX) are three of the top construction machinery stocks to look at right now.
