Top 5 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Boeing Co.’s (NYSE: BA) share price added about 2.8% last week to maintain its position as the best performing among the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). Shares gained $8.04 last week to boost the year-to-date gain to nearly 89%.

Of the three other stocks closest to Boeing’s yearly gain, Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) rose by about 1.9% to a gain of over 58% for the year, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) added about 2.7% to close the week up just over 50% for the year to date and Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) tacked on 1.8% to bring its annual gain to nearly 46%.

Last week was a busy one for Boeing, at least for its public affairs staff. The company raised its dividend, approved a new share buyback program, lost a military jet order to Canada, lost a multibillion passenger jet order to arch-rival Airbus and then read the news about the shake-up at the top of its European competitor.

As expected, Boeing lifted its dividend following Monday’s board of directors meeting. The 20% increase, from $5.68 to $6.84 annually per share, was accompanied by a new share repurchase plan valued at $18 billion. The company posted a new 52-week high on Tuesday.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Gardner:There’sa lot of biotech and some computer companies. We once visited the Cray Corporation (NASDAQ:CRAY), which was one of the early supercomputer companies.Seymour Cray was one of the pioneers of supercomputing. If you look up Cray Computers, they were the supercomputers back in the 80s, when computers were a lot bigger than they are today, andprobably slower, but they were super back then. Anyway,that was a Minneapolis company I once visited. Our dad used to take us, occasionally, on trips. We’d just drop by corporate headquarters and talk to an investor relations person. That was one of the times I did that. Itwasn’t like I did it dozens of times. We did maybe five or six times. ButI’ll always remember Cray Computer.

Angel Commodities’ report on Gold

Last week, spot gold prices declined 0. 4 percent to trade at $ 1311.2 per ounce while MCX gold prices declined 0.6 percent although rupee depreciation of around 2 percent did not help gold prices much. Stronger US dollar optimistic data sets from the US and assurance from the FED that the rate hikes will be gradual in 2018 kept the gold prices in check for most of the last week. The Fed said inflation on a 12 – month basis was “expected to run near the committee’s symmetric 2 percent objective”. However, sharp downside was limited as u ncertainties supported bullion, including U.S. – China trade talks and the potential U.S. withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear accord.

Outlook
We expect gold prices to trade higher today as the Iranian nuclear accord and the US China trade tensions will boost safe haven demand. On the MCX, gold prices are expected to trade higher today, international markets are trading higher by 0.2 percent at $ 1317.70 per ounce.
