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.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    BEACH ENERGY Lt/ADR (OTCMKTS:BCHEY) and BAE SYS PLC/S (OTCMKTS:BAESY) are both oils/energy companies, but which is the better stock?

    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.

    The Marine Corps has selected BAE Systems (NASDAQOTH:BAESY) to manufacture its next-generation amphibious combat vehicle, dealing a major setback to the diversification plans of Science Applications International (NYSE:SAIC).

More than 10 million Americans received disability benefits in 2015. These benefits, paid mostly to disabled workers, totalled $11.4 billion per month.

24/7 Wall St. reviewed the percentage of each states population receiving disability insurance using data released annually by the Social Security Administration. While the size of the average disability check tends to be roughly the same in every state, the shares of states’ populations relying on these benefits varies a great deal.

Nationwide, 4.7% of Americans 18 to 64 years old are on disability. Across states, the percentage ranges from more than 8% in West Virginia, Alabama, and several other Southern states to less than 3% in Alaska and Hawaii.

Approximately 8.9 million of the 10.2 million beneficiaries nationwide are disabled workers. The remaining recipients include 1.6 million minors and children of disabled workers, 1.1 million disabled adults dependent on their parents, 260,000 disabled widows and widowers, and 142,000 spouses.

    The third quarter was an extremely busy period with lots and lots of important changes to manage.

    Donovan added the CEO title to his chairmanship of the board on Feb. 26, just two weeks after the second-quarter report. Ex-CEO Dana Landry waved farewell to “pursue other opportunities.” At the same time, CFO Keith Abriel stepped down to make way for Doug Lamb as his successor. Two months later, DHX continued to revamp its management team with three new C-suite appointments and the departure of co-founder Steven DeNure. Two separate executives now fill his dual roles as COO and president. This Sunday, DHX announced a partnership with Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) music entertainment division that gives the Japanese media giant 49% ownership of DHX’s interests in Peanuts. This deal added 237 million CDN ($185 million) to DHX’s coffers, taking some weight off the debt load that was created when the company spent $345 million on Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake. The Sony agreement is expected to close in June. And alongside this earnings report, DHX decided to simplify its dual-class stock structure on the Toronto Stock Exchange, bundling its two stock classes together in a single class with a single ticker. Thanks to Canadian media regulations, this single bucket of stock will still be treated differently based on the shareholder’s citizenship — Canadians always get one vote per share but the portion of votes owned by non-Canadians can never exceed one-third of the total vote count.

    All of these drastic changes are part of DHX Media’s ongoing “strategic review,” which might end up in a complete exit from the public markets. The additions of Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake to DHX’s content portfolio have failed to kick the company into a state of next-level growth. Interest payments and other financing expenses exceeded the company’s selling, general, and administrative costs in the third quarter. That’s a heavy anchor to carry, though the Sony deal should lighten it a

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market eased lower on Friday, but major benchmarks managed to come back considerably from their worst levels of the day. At its lows, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down more than 200 points following news that the U.S. would indeed move forward with tariffs against China. Yet even though China announced plans to retaliate in kind, market participants seemed willing to give trade policy the benefit of the doubt given the current strength of the U.S. economy. Some stocks saw nice gains in response to the news, as well as to company-specific events. Schnitzer Steel Industries (NASDAQ:SCHN), Braskem (NYSE:BAK), and Pivotal Software (NYSE:PVTL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
