    Britain’s BAE Systems (NASDAQOTH:BAESF) (NASDAQOTH:BAESY) is a behemoth, doing more than $24 billion in annual business and valued in excess of $26 billion — yet it’s largely unknown to U.S. investors, a consequence of its stock being traded over the counter and not on major U.S. stock exchanges like the NYSE or Nasdaq. That could change, however, with BAE winning a big endorsement from investment megabank Morgan Stanley this morning.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos, Leo Sun, and Jamal Carnette, CFA]

    Technology trends move quickly, but investors have to try to look past the cyclical demand to find businesses with enduring competitive advantages. With that broader focus in mind, we asked a few Motley Fool contributors to offer up stock ideas that look attractive over the long term. Read on to see why Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) topped that list.

    Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) was the target of a large growth in short interest in May. As of May 15th, there was short interest totalling 6,205,638 shares, a growth of 52.4% from the April 30th total of 4,070,641 shares. Based on an average daily trading volume, of 3,926,939 shares, the short-interest ratio is presently 1.6 days. Currently, 2.2% of the company’s stock are sold short.

    U.S. investors often avoid Russian stocks due to the political risks, sanctions, and currency issues associated with the once-hot emerging market. But despite those challenges, there’s one Russian growth stock that doubled over the past two years — Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), which created the country’s top search engine.

  • [By Rex Moore]

    1. Yandex highlights advances in self-driving carsMy top moment came far from the convention center crowds, in a self-driving car by a company largely unfamiliar to Americans. The company is Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) — known as the “Google of Russia” because it dominates internet search in that country and rakes in a lot of cash because of it.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

For example, in the past he&s;s mentioned how he thinks it&s;s wrong that he ends up paying a lower rate of tax than his secretary. This is because of how taxes on income relative to &l;a href=&q;http://www.forbes.com/sites/simonmoore/2016/10/18/taxes-can-offer-a-free-lunch-for-investors/&q;&g;long-term capital gains&l;/a&g;&a;nbsp;typically work.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

What happened

Shares of Alta Mesa Resources (NASDAQ:AMR) are plunging today, down 17.7% as of 11:45 a.m. EDT, after the oil and gas exploration and production company posted second-quarter earnings that fell well short of Wall Street expectations.

So what

Alta Mesa reported a net loss of $0.04 per share compared to analysts’ expectations of a per-share profit of $0.10. While the company was able to grow production significantly — July production was 50% higher than the beginning of the year — and volumes of gas fracking water were up across its set of pipeline assets, low price realizations because of some unfavorable futures contracts and higher costs ate away at any chance of generating a positive return.

Hot Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

With the U.S. stock market in the midst of an October sell-off, Wall Street analysts who study charts for a living are worried the situation could get much worse. Among the reasons that have technical analysts concerned are a breakdown in the bull market leaders and a drop by the S&P 500 below its average price of the last 50 days.

The S&P 500 is down 2.5 percent for October and counting amid Wednesday’s slide.

“The selling is a result of selling the best performing stocks this year and it is difficult to time when that selling pressure will slow,” said JC O’Hara, chief market technician at MKM Partners, in a note. “The best-performing decile of S&P 500 stocks this year is lower by 6.6 percent in October. Today, that basket is lower by 1.7 percent (the worst of all 10 deciles).”

“Until we see some stabilization in that basket, we will continue to see weakness,” O’Hara said.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2019

President Donald Trump announced his plan to crack down on foreign investments in American technology companies, but the president’s stance is not nearly as harsh as anticipated.

What Happened

The Senate approved changes to the way the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States operates, which will allow the committee to block joint-venture takeovers of U.S. companies by foreign companies. Under the previous rules, the CFIUS could block direct takeovers of U.S. companies, but they weren't authorized to block foreign companies from forming joint ventures to acquire U.S. targets.

In a statement, President Trump said the new rules will help protect the U.S. economy from foreign influence while maintaining a string environment for international investment.

“I have concluded that such legislation will provide additional tools to combat the predatory investment practices that threaten our critical technology leadership, national security, and future economic prosperity,” Trump said.

Why It’s Important

Markets initially reacted positively to the new foreign investment rules, suggesting investors had expected an even harsher crackdown. Some anticipated the U.S. would block takeovers of U.S. companies by any company with at least 25 percent Chinese ownership.

Best Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

The stock market dropped yesterday finally.

For the first time in 2018, the major averages dipped into the red to close out a quiet trading session.

I know it sounds ridiculous, but some traders are annoyed that the market broke its streak and finished lower. While I dont think I need to write this, I will anyway: the stock market must go down sometimes. Some people are forgetting this inconvenient truth as the trading environment gets a little frothy.

Honestly, Id be worried sick if the major averages shot up for a month straight. That kind of action is much more dangerous than the slow and steady melt-up weve experienced since last year.

With the market streaking higher every week, its tempting to tune out boring down days like we saw yesterday. Dont fall into this trap! When the market slips, you should pay close attention. The action can reveal important clues about where you should look for your next trade.

It all boils down to performance. On a down day in a strong market, we need to watch for the stocks or sectors that are outperforming everything else. Sometimes, these will be the stocks that are down less than the averages. Other times, these are stocks that finish well in the green. That brings us to yesterdays action

The semiconductor company reported ($0.05) earnings per share for the quarter, hitting the Thomson Reuters’ consensus estimate of ($0.05), Bloomberg Earnings reports. The company had revenue of $60.10 million for the quarter, compared to analysts’ expectations of $59.82 million. Inphi had a positive return on equity of 5.39% and a negative net margin of 21.51%.

    Inphi (IPHI) provides high-speed analog and mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications, datacenter and computing markets. This stock closed up 4.7% at $13.25 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 838,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 202,080

    Volume % Change: 378%

    From a technical perspective, IPHI jumped higher here right above some near-term support at $12.44 with heavy upside volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last five months, with shares soaring higher from its low of $8.62 to its intraday high of $13.85. During that uptrend, shares of IPHI have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move briefly pushed shares of IPHI into breakout territory, since the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $13.50.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IPHI as long as it’s trending above some near-term support at $12.44 and then once it sustains a move or close above its new 52-week high at $13.85 with volume that hits near or above 202,080 shares. If we get that move soon, then IPHI will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are its next major overhead resistance levels at $14.79 to $16.94, or possibly even $18.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now: iShares Core S&P 500 (IVV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.KIPLINGER.COM]

    If youre not familiar, the VOO is one of three S&P 500-tracking ETFs the other two are the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) and the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV). Each operates slightly differently, but at the end of the day, each provides very honest, tight tracking of the S&P 500. The VOO is simply the cheapest at just 0.05% in expenses, which accounts for most of the slight performance edge over its ETF brethren.

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    Passive ETFs continuing to top active rivals is not all about the performance of U.S. stocks this year. Yes, the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent year-to-date, but that is not a jaw-dropping performance. Much of the ongoing out-performance of passive ETFs over active counterparts this year is attributable to fees. Just look at the rock-bottom fees on ETFs such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSE: SPY) and the iShares S&P 500 Core ETF (NYSE: IVV).

  • [By Johanna Bennett]

    Times are tough for Ralph Lauren (RL). Profit and sales are fallingat theiconic clothingcompany, and investors who bet on a turnaround havelost their shirts on the stock. Adding to its troubles,CEO StefanLarsson is departingfollowing a creative clash with the companys namesake and founder.

    Pessimism, meanwhile, appears to be on the rise.

    According to a report by the financial analytics company S3 Partners, short interest in Ralph Lauren has risen since the start of the year, hitting historical levels. And while that short position is expected to keep expanding, bearish sentiments could turn on a dime.

    Ihor Dusaniwsky at S3 Partners writes:

    RL short interest levels, already at historical highs today, should continue to grow if the recent trend continues, but having made almost 23% in 2016 and 14% in 2017, short sellers may be quick to cover their positions and lock in profits if RLs stock price turns against them.

    Short interest in Ralph Lauren fell in 2016 as the stock price fella nd shorts covered positions, netting a return of 22.6%. So far this year, however, the short position as increased $226 million, or 38% to $815 million as of this morning, according to the S3 report.

    Its a profitable day for those short sellers. Todays 11% decline Ralph Laurens stock price on an $815 million short position has added $90 million to the short sellers collective bottom line.

    Ralph Lauren is down 11.5% in recent market actions to $77.26 a after earlier falling as low as $76.86 a share. Thats the lowest price for the stock since 2010.

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    The final REIT type I like right now is self-storage, particularly Extra Space Storage (NYSE:EXR).

    First, I should mention that this could prove to be the most volatile company on the list. Self-storage isn’t as defensive as retail or healthcare simply because of its lease structure. Generally, you don’t sign a multi-year lease on a storage unit — you just pay each month that you want to keep it. This makes it easier for tenants to vacate the properties during tough times.

Summary

Over the past years, Lionsgate (LGF.A) (LGF.B) has been seen as both an acquirer and a potential take out target. After intense constant speculation, Lionsgate seems more than ready to go through with a sale to a number of potential buyers. For buyers, the timing is likely right as the company has recently been beaten down after earnings.

In the period surrounding earnings (Jan. 26th-Feb. 9th), Lionsgate traded down ~25% (going from $35.52 to $26.81). This trade down was the result of the company reporting Q3 2018 earnings. However, this trade down ignored the fact that the earnings posted by the company were strong. The trade down was driven by the company’s guidance that CY 2019 would be an investment year rather than the growth year that it was previously expected to be.

While the fundamental business remains strong and offers growth in 2020 and beyond, the current M&A environment will likely lead the business to be purchased before then. Some of the main suitors of the business include Amazon, Comcast (if Sky bid is lost), and Sony. Average precedent transactions imply a reasonable multiple of 25x EBITDA which implies a share price of $41.00 per share, representing a ~38% upside to where shares are currently trading.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

It was a mixed day for stocks as blue chips managed to squeak out a gain and small-caps got crushed ahead of tomorrow’s Fed announcement.

Keith Bedford for The Wall Street Journal

The S&P 500 fell 0.2% to 2,015.93 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22.40 points, or 0.1%, to 17,251.53. The Nasdaq Composite fell 0.5% to 4,728.67. The Russell 2000 tumbled 1.6% to 1,066.67, the first time since Sept. 2011 that the small-company benchmark fell by at least 1.5% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished higher.

The folks at Bespoke Investment Group consider the Russell 2000′s underperformance versus the S&P 500 this year:

Including today, the S&P 500 is down 1.6%, while the Russell 2000 is down 6.1%. Todays underperformance in small caps is just a continuation of what has been an extremely consistent trend of daily underperformance this year.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: JAKKS Pacific, Inc.(JAKK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    One under-$10 toy player that’s trending very close to triggering a major breakout trade is Jakks Pacific (JAKK), which is a producer and marketer of children’s toys and other consumer products. This stock has been destroyed by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 60%.

    If you take a look at the chart for Jakks Pacific, you’ll notice that this stock has been downtrending badly for the last two months and change, with shares plunging from its high of $11.75 to its recent low of $4.82 a share. During that downtrend, shares of JAKK have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of JAKK look like they might be ready to see an end to its downside volatility in the short-term if the recent lows can hold. I believe this due to the fact that JAKK has started to move sideways and trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JAKK if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $5.08 to $5.27 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 695,817 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then JAKK will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.68 to its 50-day moving average at $6.07 a share. Any high-volume move above its 50-day will then put $7 to $8 into range for shares of JAKK.

    Traders can look to buy JAKK off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $4.87 to $4.82 a share. One can also buy JAKK off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    Gold mining stocks were also lower, with Randgold Resources (GOLD) falling around 1.5% and Fresnillo Plc (FNLPF) slipping 0.85%.

    Thus we are still extremely cautious in gold as we are a bit worried about next week’s job report being positive and knocking gold down, but we maintain our core positions in gold. But we aren’t looking to re-establish any of our sold gold and silver positions just yet until we see more of a pullback in the metals or a bad jobs report and thus we think investors should hold off or lighten up on gold positions in the ETF’s and miners such as the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:GLD), ETFS Physical Swiss Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:SGOL), iShares Silver Trust (NYSEARCA:SLV), and miners such as Randgold (GOLD) and Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX).
