Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2019

When the thing your company is named for is no longer selling all that well, that’s a big problem. Just ask Campbell Soup, which reported lousy earnings Tuesday because of weak soup sales.

Shares of Campbell Soup (CPB) plunged more than 7% after the food giant said that soup sales in the U.S. fell 9% from a year ago. The company also lowered its earnings outlook for fiscal 2018.

CEO Denise Morrison said overall sales were hurt by the fact that “the operating environment remains volatile with a rapidly evolving retailer landscape and competitive activity.” In other words, food prices are coming down at your local grocer.

Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) bought Whole Foods and quickly cut prices after the deal closed. That’s put pressure on other grocery chains like Kroger (KR), SuperValu (SVU), Sprouts (SFM) and privately held Albertsons/Safeway to follow suit and offer more discounts.

And that’s been bad news for Campbell Soup as well as other packaged food companies like Kraft Heinz (KHC), Conagra (CAG), General Mills (GIS) and Mondelez (MDLZ).

    Friday was a strong day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks finished higher by 1% to 2%. Market participants focused their attention on the April jobs report, which included a drop in the unemployment rate to 3.9%, its lowest level in more than 17 years. Nonfarm payroll gains of 164,000 weren’t extremely strong, and some saw wage growth of just 2.6% as bad news for workers. Yet from many investors’ perspective, weak wage growth is actually a positive, as it indicates a lack of inflationary pressure that’s good for most stocks. Good news regarding several key individual companies also helped stoke favorable sentiment. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Dear Reader,

More men die of jealousy than die of cancer, said Joseph Kennedy.

Today, a brief reflection on that ignoble but staggeringly human emotion

It is said a man is jealous of his betters.

But it is only partly true.

The average man harbors no jealousy for the great man.

He is not jealous of the Alexanders the Caesars the Napoleons of this world.

These are men stamped from a finer metal and the average man gracefully acknowledges it is not his metal.

The sparrow understands its place is not among the eagles.

No, the subject of the average mans jealousy is his peer the average man.

The average man is not jealous of the (19972010) Tiger Woods who won 14 majors but the guy in his weekend foursome who once broke 80.

He is not jealous of the Brad Pitt who scores the supermodel but the insurance salesman who lands the pleasant-looking gal he himself set his cap for.

Nor is the average man jealous of a Warren Buffett with his billions but the middle-class fellow down the street whos moving up to a nicer neighborhood.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Brean Capital reported on Friday that it has upgraded natural gas utility company WGL Holdings Inc (WGL).

    The firm has raised its rating on WGL from “Hold” to “Buy,” and has given the company a $46 price target. This price target suggests a 12% increase from the stock’s current price of $40.62. The upgrade was primarily based on valuation and future investment opportunities.

    “Like many utilities in the gas LDC space, the shares of WGL Holdings have come off recent highs and are now trading at a level we consider attractive,” analyst Michael Gaugler comments. “Beyond valuation, we consider the recent announcement of conditional approval of Dominion’s Cove Point facility for LNG export as a positive development in terms of future investment opportunities, given the company’s one-third interest in the Commonwealth Pipeline project, which we believe will be revisited due to future increased demand.”

    WGL Holdings shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock has been mostly flat YTD.

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, machinery, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

The Mexican peso is headed for its largest monthly gain in nearly five years as President Donald Trump and his partisans suffer the first major legislative setback of his presidency.

This looming milestone represents drastic and, many believed, improbable, turnaround for the peso, the most heavily traded currency in Latin America: Two months ago, just as Trump was preparing to take the oath of office, the currency plunged to an all-time low. It has risen nearly 10% against the dollar since then, and since the beginning of March, the greenback has slid nearly 7% against the peso.

    Following the decision of the PTAB not to institute CHRS IPR on the 166 Humira formulation patent, we continue to anticipate that first likely launch of biosimilar adalimumab (Humira) in the US will be delayed until 2020, in line with our published forecasts and biosimilar model. We anticipate the open IPR hearings for the 135 dosing patent on Humira (filed by Boehringer and Coherus) to begin in Feb 2017 with the ruling in May. We rateAbbVie a Buy. We continue to prefer BUY rated Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) among the US names.

    Eli Lilly & Co. (LLY) and Biogen (BIIB) are far from the only two drug makers racing to deliver a new treatment for Alzheimers disease. But they are pretty much leading the pack.

    The market for an effective therapy that actually slows the progression of the disease would likely generate billions of dollars in annual sales. It is quite literally the drug industrys version of the holy grail.

    And according to Barclays analysts Geoff Meacham and Paul Choi, the next few weeks could prove to be one of the most fertile periods in Alzheimers disease research since 2008.

    We think the most likely outcome for Lilly’s Phase 3 EXPEDITION 3 (E3) solanezumab trial is the primary cognition (ADAS-Cog14) endpoint is met (just achieving statistical significance with a p-value <0.05) and mixed results on the secondary endpoints including function (ADL), which we believe should be good enough to support a regulatory submission. While aducanumab has a marginally different mechanism of action, we nevertheless expect BIIB shares to trade in sympathy to Lilly.

    Implications for Biogen and Merck: The E3 results are likely to result in volatility for Biogen (up 20-30%, down 10-15%) as Alzheimer’s drives both long-term growth and M&A value even though aducanumab works differently from solanezumab.

    Aducanumab dose titration data is expected at the CTAD meeting (San Diego, Dec. 9). Merck’s Phase 2/3 EPOCH verubecestat (BACE) trial is scheduled to finish in June 2017 but unlike E3, PET scans/CSF tests for A were not an inclusion criteria. We think Merck shares could move 3% to 5% in either direction in sympathy to E3.

    At $76.58, Lillys share price has fallen more than 9% over the past year, while Biogen has climbed more than 9% over the same span.
