Top Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Apple is definitely getting the last laugh over Tesla.

It was just over two years ago, in the summer of 2016, you may recall, when Apple
AAPL, +1.16%
was struggling. Customers had become accustomed to blockbuster new product launches in rapid succession, and the company didn’t seem to be delivering. Its stock was trading for a third less than where it had stood in mid-2015, just a year earlier.

    Crude oil prices continue to remain in focus after Brent crude hit $80.00 per barrel. The benchmark crude touched $80.00, as markets are concerned about the impact renewed Iranian sanctions will have on global supply. French oil giant Total announced Wednesday that it was abandoning a gas project in Iran after failing to obtain a waiver from the Trump administration to do business in Iran. The sanctions are expected to decline global output at a time that OPEC is already working diligently to push oil prices higher by containing excessive global production.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now: AmeriGas Partners, L.P.(APU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Investors seeking income from energy stocks will find it difficult to match the impressive yields of Ferrellgas Partners LP (NYSE:FGP) and AmeriGas Partners (NYSE:APU), which sit at 11.9% and 9%, respectively. However, this is a textbook case of higher yields representing higher levels of risk.

    If you’re like me, you probably use branded propane tanks from AmeriGas Partners (NYSE:APU) or Blue Rhino, which is owned by Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. (NYSE:FGP) (Full disclosure: Propane is propane. I use AmeriGas because it’s what the local convenience store sells.) Either one will get your burgers cooked, but which one will keep your portfolio cooking along? 

  • [By John Bromels]

    I use propane tanks from AmeriGas Partners (NYSE:APU) because that’s what my local convenience store sells, but many outdoor cooks use Blue Rhino, which is owned by Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. (NYSE:FGP). There’s no difference between them when it comes to getting your burgers browned or your ribs crispy — propane is propane, after all, regardless of who’s selling it — but there are big differences in the two companies from an investor’s standpoint.

Top Safest Stocks For 2019

Despite several years of steady declines, deadly vehicle crashes are on the rise, according to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The safest day to be on the road: Tuesday. The most dangerous? Saturday.

That’s according to a new study by Avvo, an online legal referral and review site, which analyzed data from NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System in 2016 on how many car crash-related fatalities happened across the country by weekday and time of day. 

The analysis found that 6,802 lives were lost on Saturday out of the 37,461 road deaths that occurred in 2016. That was 53% higher than the 4,444 deaths that happened on a Tuesday, the day with the least number of crash-related fatalities. 

The second and third deadliest days were also associated with the weekend: Friday (5,826) and Sunday (5,809).

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019

In a CNBC interview this week, Warren Buffett was asked if he would still consider investing in gun companies after the school shooting in Florida and calls for corporate America to stop supporting the NRA and gun manufacturers.

This was his response:

“I think what the kids are doing there is very admirable, but I don’t think that Berkshire should say, ‘We’re not going to do business with people that hold guns. That would be ridiculous.

A few more interview excerpts on the same topic

“I don’t believe in imposing my views on 370,000 employees and a million shareholders. I’m not their nanny on that.”

“I think you should be pretty careful before a company takes a big political opinion.”

Its a mistake to start getting personal views and trying to impose them on an organization. You have to be pretty careful if youre saying youre not going to fly on this airline because of that or were not going to use this railroad because of that.

Hot Medical Stocks To Own For 2018

Even as Republicans scramble to find the votes to pass their latest attempt to repeal Obamacare, the list of advocacy and industry groups opposed to the bill continues to grow.

On Wednesday, the two major health insurance industry associations voiced their concerns about the legislation, which would jettison several major Obamacare provisions and curtail federal support of Medicaid. They fear the bill would hurt consumers and patients by destabilizing the individual market and weakening Medicaid.

“The bill contains provisions that would allow states to waive key consumer protections, as well as undermine safeguards for those with pre-existing medical conditions,” the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association wrote in a statement. “The legislation reduces funding for many states significantly and would increase uncertainty in the marketplace, making coverage more expensive and jeopardizing Americans’ choice of health plans.”

America’s Health Insurance Plans was even more explicit, saying it cannot support the proposal authored by Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

Hot Medical Stocks To Own For 2018: Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (SSNLF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Autonomous driving is going to be an interesting development for GM. Although most of the attention goes towards Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Tesla on this front, probably every automaker is working on this technology. The automakers are extremely well positioned to deliver the bodies. A development to watch is whether the automakers are going to botch this shift like electronic companies did with mobile. Remember BlackBerry (NYSE:BB), Nokia (NYSE:NOK) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF). All these devices now run some version of Android.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Now, this removes one big uncertainty (actually management was pretty convinced they would settle on favorable terms), but there are a few other headwinds that also led them to lower guidance when presenting Q3 figures:

    In the low end of the mobile market (imaging) they are experiencing increasing competition. They are dealing with this by concentrating on more sophisticated and integrated solutions and narrowing the strategic focus (this is already starting to pay off with design wins like the Huawei Mate 10). For now they expect imaging revenues to be at least $10M lower. The probability of recognizing revenue from Echo, a significant mobile customer for audio technologies, has progressively declined as well. Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) IP licensing is removed from the guidance as they are litigating the company for patent infringement. Management is convinced of a favorable outcome here as well (they embarked on extensive DD prior to filing), but unsure of the timing. Management believes at least $10M in licence revenues has been underreported, but likely resolution will shift this income to 2018. Roughly $5M in expected license revenue from Invensas Licensees will shift to 2018 Guidance excludes roughly $52M in cash receipts which the company can’t recognize as revenue under purchase accounting related to the DTS acquisition (see below for an explanation). This is why cash flow figures are much better than earnings figures.

    These are all somewhat messy litigation and compliance issues, but at least the Broadcom issue has been settled and much of the rest is likely to shift to 2018. About the Purchase Accounting. From company PR:
