It&a;rsquo;s a great industry to be a part of, but at the same time, the diligence required by individuals, corporations and governments has never been higher.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2021: Cogentix Medical, Inc.(CGNT)

Cogentix Medical, Inc., formerly Vision-Sciences, Inc., incorporated on October 19, 1987, is a medical device company. The Company designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for endoscopy with its product lines featuring a visualization system and sterile disposable microbial barrier, EndoSheath technology, providing users with endoscope turnover. The Company produces and markets Endoscopes (cystoscopes, ureteroscopes, laryngoscopes, otoscopes, sinuscopes, trans-nasal esophagoscopy (TNE) and bronchoscopes for medical use, and borescopes for industrial use) and digital processing units (DPU); EndoSheath technology; Urgent PC System; Macroplastique, and other products and applications.

Endoscopes and Digital Processing Units for Medical Use

The Company developed two visualization platforms for endoscopy: fiber optic (4000 Series) and video (5000 Series and 7000 Series). Its 4000 Series fiberscopes contain fiber optic imaging systems with functional aspects, such as small diameter endoscopes and portability options, through the use of a battery-powered light source. Its digital video-based endoscopes facilitate diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2021: ProQR Therapeutics N.V.(PRQR)

ProQR Therapeutics N.V. (ProQR), formerly ProQR Therapeutics B.V., is a pre-clinical stage biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in the discovery and development of Ribonucleic Acid (RNA)-based therapeutics for the treatment of severe genetic disorders. Utilizing its RNA repair technologies, the Company is developing a pipeline in severe genetic disorders, such as cystic fibrosis (CF) and Leber’s congenital amaurosis (LCA). The Company designs its therapeutic candidates to specifically target and repair the defective messenger RNA, or Messenger Ribonucleic Acid (mRNA), that is transcribed from a mutated gene in order to restore the expression and function of normal, or wild-type protein. The Company’s product candidates include QR-010 and QR-110. The Company is focusing on developing QRX- 911, QRX- 021, QRX- 313 for Epidermolysis bullosa, QRX- 704 for Huntington’s disease, QRX- 812, QRX- 411 for Usher syndrome, QRX- 504 for Fuchs, QRX- 604 for Friedreich’s ataxia and QRX- 203 for Alzheimer’s disease.

QR-010

The Company’s lead product candidate, QR-010, is an RNA-based oligonucleotide. QR-010 is designed to address the underlying cause of the disease by repairing the mRNA defect encoded by the delta-F508 mutation in the Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene of CF patients. The delta-F508 mutation is a deletion of over three of the coding base pairs or nucleotides, in the CFTR gene, which results in the production of a misfolded CFTR protein that does not function normally. QR-110 is designed to bind to the mutated location in the pre-mRNA, thereby leading to normally spliced or wild-type mRNA, which could produce wild-type or normal protein. QR-110 is designed to be administered through intravitreal injections in the eye.

QR-110

The Company’s product candidate, QR-110, is an oligonucleotide. QR-110 is designed to treat the disease by repairing the underlying cause in the mRNA, which results in the production of wi! ld-type centrosomal protein 290 (CEP290 protein). QR-110 is designed to bind to the mutated location in the pre-mRNA, masking the cryptic splice site, thereby leading to normally spliced or wild-type mRNA, which could produce wild-type or normal protein. QR-110 is designed to be administered through intravitreal injections in the eye.

The Company competes with Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc., Novartis International AG, Hoffmann-LaRoche Ltd., Pfizer Inc., Galapagos, AbbVie Laboratories, Shire, Sanofi, Bayer AG, Proteostasis, Corbus Pharmaceuticals, Nivalis and Gilead.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    ProQR (NASDAQ:PRQR) is developing QR-110 to treat patients with a mutation on the same gene as EDIT-101 but in a much different manner. QR-110 would require repeat injections right in the eyes to help a mutated gene produce functional copies of the CEP290 protein, while EDIT-101 is designed to repair the gene and provide a permanent solution with a single treatment.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019

Airlines have historically made for terrible investments. Warren Buffett famously said that “if a farsighted capitalist had been present at Kitty Hawk, he would have done his successors a huge favor by shooting Orville down.” Fortunately, a couple of airline stocks have managed to avoid bankruptcy and make their shareholders major bucks over the years. Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) is the United States’ best example. An investor in LUV stock over the past 20 years has made a total return of 533% — not bad for an airline stock.

So, give management its due, it’s avoided the usual pitfalls of the airline industry. But 2018 may not be such a good year for Southwest’s investors. The company recently had a fatal crash, oil prices are spiking and its international routes are facing more competition.

Southwest Flight 1380

On April 17, Southwest Flight 1380 was forced to make an emergency landing after one of the plane’s engines exploded in flight. Tragically, the explosion was so great that the damage broke a window and almost sucked a passenger out of the cabin. Other people pulled her back in, but she later died.

    In fact, as my colleague Asit Sharma notes, one of the reasons ADT went public was because its majority owner — private equity firm Apollo Management (NYSE:APO) — wanted to pay down some of ADT’s burdensome debt load with its IPO proceeds. But should investors buy what Apollo sold? So far, the answer has been “no,” with ADT’s stock price down more than 40% from its IPO price. And with competitive threats from SimpliSafe and Amazon mounting, ADT’s stock price could continue to head lower in the months ahead.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    This process starts with gathering pipelines, which transports a well’s production to central processing locations that separate oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), and water. The oil then moves by truck, pipeline, or tanker to storage facilities while it waits to go through a refinery or petrochemical complex and get turned into fuel, chemicals, or another oil-based product. While oil companies tend to own some of these midstream assets, especially gathering lines and processing facilities, third parties hold a significant portion of the energy infrastructure in North America. These companies often charge fees for the logistical services provided to oil companies. Master limited partnerships (MLPs) are a noteworthy owner of these assets in the U.S. and most commonly found in the energy midstream sector. MLPs are tax-advantaged entities that pass through most of their income to investors. The largest MLP by enterprise value is Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), while other notable ones include Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) and MPLX (NYSE:MPLX).

Best Stocks To Invest In Right Now

For the second time in less than a year, Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) has given the green light to a new natural gas pipeline project, this time making a final investment decision on the Permian Highway Pipeline. In doing so, the company is adding a bit more clarity to its growth prospects, which dimmed earlier this year after it sold the Trans Mountain Pipeline and its controversial expansion project to the Government of Canada. While the company hasn’t yet replaced what it lost by jettisoning that project, it’s working fast to lessen the blow.

Details on the latest project

Kinder Morgan initially unveiled the Permian Highway Pipeline project in late June, announcing that it signed a letter of intent with private equity-backed EagleClaw Midstream and Apache (NYSE:APA) to develop another new gas pipeline out of the Permian Basin. That project got a big boost of confidence last month when ExxonMobil’s XTO Energy subsidiary signed on to be an anchor shipper. The partners would go on to secure additional shippers for nearly all the pipeline’s remaining capacity, which allowed them to officially sanction the project this week.

Top Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018

Mattel (MAT) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after missing earnings forecasts by a wide margin.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

Matteldropped 18% to $25.99 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,296.68.

Barclays analyst Felicia Hendrix doesn’t believe the plunge made Mattel’s shares any more attractive. She explains why:

While the company’s valuation could appear more attractive following this release, we remain Equal Weight particularly given that management’s LT growth objectives are now pushed out to 2019 from 2018, and in 2018 the company faces tough comps against a strong entertainment driven 2017. Until investors feel more comfortable with Mattel’s growth trajectory, we believe valuation upside is limited. Further, with this most recent setback, we believe investors are going to focus on the sustainability of the dividend yet again which could also be an overhang. The new CEO (as of 2/8) could shake things up and inject growth (particularly in ecommerce), which would certainly be a positive. We are looking forward to hearing Ms. Georgiadis’ plans as she gets settled in

Top Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018: Caesars Entertainment Corporation(CZR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) and Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) are two of the most well known gaming companies in the world. But they’re very different companies with very different futures ahead.

  • [By Michael E. Lewitt]

    Back in April, I recommendedCaesars Entertainment Corp.(Nasdaq: CZR) as a buy – but warned you that this was a play that might take some time to mature.

  • [By AlphaStreetResearch]

    Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CZR) is a highly overvalued gaming, hotel, and entertainment company with deteriorating fundamentals on all levels in a highly competitive environment. The company’s stock has seen a massive run to the upside on the coattails of other casino and entertainment companies in the space. A considerable catalyst for the push higher in these stocks is the good news coming out of Macau, but this is an area where Caesars has absolutely no exposure and will be locked out of for the foreseeable future after failing to take appropriate licensing measures. Below is our introduction into the business model, its weaknesses, and the new selling or shorting opportunity that exists for CZR after the recent appreciation in share price. Investors will soon realize that there is little upside value in this company and that there are much better opportunities in this space. The company is now amidst a major struggle from a debt standpoint with major deadlines approaching over the next year and a half. The company is in no position to thrive going forward unless major steps are taken to overhaul the company’s capital structure. Caesars Entertainment has a market cap of $3.19 Billion after the stock has moved up over 225% year to date and reports its next quarter on October 31, 2013. With this in mind, we value CZR at $21.00 by year-end of 2013 and $14.00 by August 1, 2014, a decrease of 40% from current levels. We will later highlight:
