Hot Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

A Las Vegas judge will now allow claims against certain members of Wynn Resorts Ltd.’s board to go forward in the long legal battle with ousted director and shareholder Kazuo Okada.

The ruling Monday by Nevada District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez reverses an earlier decision that would have prevented claims against the directors based on their 2012 vote to remove Okada from the board and redeem his shares.

Steve Wynn and Okada have been feuding for about six years, since Wynn pushed Okada out of Wynn Resorts, alleging he bribed Philippine gaming officials. The setback comes amid a broader controversy surrounding Wynn, who was the subject of a Wall Street Journal expose on Jan. 26 that detailed various allegations of sexual harassment and coercion against the casino magnate. He has denied any wrongdoing.

The ruling also revives scrutiny of Wynn Resorts’ board, which has been criticized for weak corporate governance and deference to its founder and chairman.

Hot Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: Suncor Energy Inc.(SU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Virginia Retirement Systems ET AL lifted its holdings in Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) (TSE:SU) by 24.5% during the first quarter, according to its most recent 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The fund owned 336,200 shares of the oil and gas producer’s stock after buying an additional 66,088 shares during the period. Virginia Retirement Systems ET AL’s holdings in Suncor Energy were worth $11,602,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    It seems every quarter lately, Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has had to deal with some grueling challenge affecting its bottom line — whether it’s the wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta, the technical failures at its Syncrude oil sands upgrading facility, or the inability for other companies to build crude oil pipelines out of Alberta. This past quarter, the lack of pipelines really reared its head, and the price of Canadian crude oil slipped below $10 per barrel in the fourth quarter. But despite this problem and the ones that have preceded it, Suncor has somehow found a way to produce respectable results.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Shares of Schneider Electric SE (EPA:SU) have earned a consensus recommendation of “Buy” from the fifteen analysts that are presently covering the stock, MarketBeat.com reports. Seven research analysts have rated the stock with a hold recommendation and eight have assigned a buy recommendation to the company. The average 12-month price objective among analysts that have covered the stock in the last year is €81.00 ($94.19).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Last week, the biggest news out of the oil patch was that OPEC agreed to hike its output by 1 million barrels per day (BPD) starting next month. That announcement drove oil prices higher because OPEC didn’t boost production as much as some thought it might. However, while that news grabbed headlines, an under-the-radar report about issues at Suncor Energy’s (NYSE:SU) Syncrude oil sands facility in Canada could have an even bigger impact on oil prices in the U.S. over the next few months.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Toronto Dominion Bank increased its position in shares of Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) (TSE:SU) by 30.9% during the first quarter, according to the company in its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The firm owned 9,779,382 shares of the oil and gas producer’s stock after acquiring an additional 2,309,941 shares during the period. Suncor Energy makes up about 0.8% of Toronto Dominion Bank’s investment portfolio, making the stock its 11th largest position. Toronto Dominion Bank owned approximately 0.60% of Suncor Energy worth $337,645,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has richly rewarded investors over the past year. Not only has the stock vastly outperformed both the S&P 500 and most other oil stocks, but it has returned a boatload of cash to shareholders through a higher dividend and share repurchases. Cash returns could rise some more in the coming months thanks two recently completed expansion projects and higher oil prices. These catalysts could be just the fuel this Canadian oil stock needs to continue outperforming.

Hot Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: Magellan Midstream Partners L.P.(MMP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) has been a great dividend growth stock since its public debut in 2001. Overall, the master limited partnership (MLP) has increased its payout 65 times, growing it at a 12% compound annual rate. The company’s ability to steadily increase the income stream it pays out has created significant value for investors. Since its IPO, Magellan has generated a total return of more than 3,000%, compared to a slightly more than 200% total return from the S&P 500 over that timeframe. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, Valero Energy is investing in new midstream infrastructure that it could eventually drop down to its MLP, including those under construction in two joint ventures it formed with Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) last year. The first one will invest $380 million in building new refined products pipelines and storage assets in central Texas, which should start service by the middle of next year. Meanwhile, Valero and Magellan Midstream are also building a new marine terminal near Houston. Valero will pour $410 million into the terminal, which should start up in early 2020. Magellan sees the potential to invest another $700 million to double the terminal’s size in the future, which is a project that it could partner with Valero.

    Crude prices recovered sharply from the profit-taking that we saw ahead of yesterday’s news events, and it is in the Saudis’ best interest to maintain higher market prices as long as the Saudi Aramco deal remains in the future. That said, the U.S. dollar continues to strengthen versus the greenback’s peers, and that could act as a weight upon all commodity prices if that condition were to persist.

    Trade Idea: Magellan Midstream Partners (MMP)

    You’ve heard all about the bottlenecks in domestic distribution. Now, you’ve heard Secretary Mnuchin talk about production. Still, we have to get this stuff to market. When it comes to energy, I have focused on oil services, hence my well-known long positions in both Action Alerts PLUS holding Schlumberger (SLB) , and Halliburton (HAL) .

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    For an example of just how important this is, take a look at the graph below. Midstream companies ONEOK Inc. (NYSE:OKE), Magellan Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:MMP), and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) have each increased their disbursements for more than a decade. However, there is a difference in the growth rates over time. Enterprise’s 10-year annualized distribution increase was 5.7%, Magellan’s was 10.9%, and ONEOK’s dividend rose at an annualized 16.1% clip. Just a few percentage points here makes a huge difference in the growth of the disbursement over time, as the chart below clearly shows.

    Wednesday was a great day on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average pushing ahead to gains of around 300 points and other major benchmarks following suit with similar-sized rises. Fears about potential European financial problems vanished as quickly as they had appeared on Tuesday, and bounces in crude oil prices and interest rates seemed to confirm that the previous mind-set favoring continued growth for the overall economy was back in place. Yet some companies still had bad news that sent their shares lower. Michael Kors Holdings (NYSE:KORS), Chico’s FAS (NYSE:CHS), and Daktronics (NASDAQ:DAKT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now

March 20, 2017: Markets opened slightly lower Monday and traded close to the break-even line all day. Leading indicators and consumer sentiment readings were both strong. Only the materials sector traded high late in the afternoon while energy and utilities were the laggards. The blue chips were performing best. WTI crude oil for April delivery settled at $48.22 a barrel, down 1.2% on the day. April gold added 0.3% on the day to settle at $1,234.00. Equities were headed for a mixed close shortly before the bell as the DJIA traded up 0.03% for the day, the S&P 500 traded down 0.14%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded up 0.02%.

Stocks traded very near the break-even line just minutes before the closing bell. The closing tally could finish with either a small gain or a small loss for any or all of the indexes.

The DJIA stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close Monday was Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) which traded up 2.66% at $95.38. The stock’s 52-week range is $69.04 to $99.46.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Cubic Corporation(CUB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.GURUFOCUS.COM]

    In actuality, we think the reverse is true for several reasons. We believe that there is a higher level of investor neglect in the small cap space, and neglect, in an investment sense, creates valuation discounts from fair value. Small cap names are less well-known and understood. For example, most of you have never heard of Cubic Corporation (NYSE:CUB), but you have likely used the public transportation systems in New York, London, Sydney, etc. that rely on Cubic for fare collection services. Likewise, Multi-Color is a confusing name for the second largest label maker in the world.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Biotricity (BTCY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When an investor thinks of stocks in the cardio-monitoring arena, names like General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) and Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT) tend to surface first. And well they should. Medtronic is the largest name dedicated solely to equipment that tells doctors and nurses how well a patient’s heart is functioning, while GE Healthcare smartly leverages the name of its parent company’s recognizable name to win market share in the medical equipment space.

    General Electric and Medtronic aren’t the only names in town, however, and certainly not the top prospects for an investor seeking out a fresh, undiscovered growth opportunity. That honor arguably belongs to an up-and-coming small cap outfit called Biotricity Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCY), which is nearing its first-ever revenue.

    Don’t look for a Biotricity product quite yet, as they’re not on the market. Consumers as well as investors will want to keep their eyes and ears open for two of them soon though, however, with one of those devices being a high-precision, FDA-approved instrument for use by healthcare workers in a clinical setting. The other device is a consumer-oriented version of the same technology, giving BTCY access to not just one but two crucial markets. Even more recently Biotricity reported it was opening up its development pipeline to the fetal monitoring and sleep apnea markets. Heart-monitoring is the near-term venture, though.

    The two products are called biotricity and biolife (neither moniker is supposed to be capitalized). The latter is a wireless, remote consumer-oriented heart rate and activity monitoring device, and the former is a clinical-grade monitoring device… also wireless and remotely operated/monitored.

    Bioflux is only available by prescription. The bioflux hardware includes an ECG (heart-rhythm) monitoring device, software, and if desired, service from a monitoring lab that performs remote diagnostic monitoring for up to 30 consecutive days at a time. It

    Biotricity Inc (OTCMKTS:BTCY), a developer of remote health-monitoring devices, reminded us not so gently today that while it’s waiting on the last of the necessary approvals from the FDA for its hardware, it’s still moving the ball downfield (so to speak). That is to say, it’s already lined up a manufacturer for its so-called Bioflux cardiac monitor for when the last green light is given, and it’s a good one…. Providence Enterprise . That’s the same company that makes some of the equipment and goods within your sight right now.

    Biotricity is the name behind two pieces of technology, both of which are nearing the end of their development. One is the aforementioned Bioflux, and the other is called biolife…. the latter for use by individuals outside of a clinical setting. Neither is on the market yet, but both are projected to be on the market this year. In fact, the company demonstrated its IoT-connected bioflux at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona, Spain a couple of weeks ago. The crowd liked what it saw.

    The marketable version of the device isn’t available yet; it’s still going through the approval process. The company recently filed a 510k request with the FDA for its bioflux technology (the 510k path is for medical devices rather than drugs, and as such doesn’t require a lot of regulatory deliberation), and has heard back from the FDA about a key part of the device already – it got the green light. Another arm of the FDA must look at other aspects of the device, and that portion of the review takes longer.

    Still, the company is rightfully optimistic, so much so that it’s already lined up a company to manufacture the Bioflux device once the final approval and final specs are in. That company is Providence Enterprise, which has a long history in making drug delivery and diagnostic equipment, as well as plenty of experience making electronics. The Bioflux will be a blend of both capabilities.

    Biotricity (OTCBB: BTCY) is a comer in the rapidly growing medical device market and is a small cap to take notice of. Driving this lucrative market are; IoT-driven device connectivity, governmental pressure to cut healthcare costs, escalating hospital costs, a need to reduce hospital readmission rates, an aging population, and a high rate of people with chronic disease. The largest factor driving this market is the rapidly growing rate of those afflicted with chronic disease.

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    As much progress as the remote medical monitoring device market has made in recent years, we’ve still only scratched the surface. The surface has been scratched though. The Dexcom G5 mobile glucose monitor from DexCom, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXCM) is one impressive example. Arguably the first and best entry in the race, DexCom has sent a clear message that consumers and caregivers are ready for a functional device that takes care of itself.

    At the other end of the spectrum is a recent round of products that are less clinical in nature, and more broad-usage friendly. Devices like the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) watch and the Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) line of products are both capable of monitoring heart rates and activity. On the other, neither does it all that well… not like one would expect in a clinical setting. Fitbit has run into a headwind of legal and reputational trouble since it’s been verified that its trackers aren’t all that accurate; Apple avoided such trouble largely because few consumers ever viewed its watches as medical-grade hardware.

    The gap between the Dexcom G5 and the Fitbit fitness trackers, however, is where real opportunity lies. See, the entries to date have proven there is a market for mobile medical devices , but have also proven they have to work as well as the equipment one might expect to find in a doctor’s office or in a hospital.

    It’s this subtle nuance that puts a young company called Biotricity Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCY) in the spotlight, as it has melded mobile monitoring and quality monitoring, and is now in the midst of making sure they’re marketable… not just to consumers, but to insurance companies (which tend to pay a lot more than the average consumer does). Fitbit missed the mark on both fronts.

    Biotricity is working two different but similar pieces of technology. One is called bioflux, for use by caregivers in a clinical setting, and the other is biolife individuals outside of a clinical setting. Neither is o

Top 10 Performing Stocks For 2018

With Dow 22,000 alerting Main Street investors to the fact stocks are at record highs, its a good time to reiterate that August has been the worst-performing month for the Dow the past 20 years. The Dow has fallen 1.4%, on average, in August and finished up just 50% of the time.

So what events in August could derail the Dows record run? LPL Financials chief wealth strategist Matthew Peterson and senior market strategist Ryan Detrick compiled a watch list:

Jobs report: The July employment report will be released Friday. Wall Street is looking for a continuation of the upbeat report in June, when the economy created 222,000 jobs. LPL is expecting 180,000 new jobs in August.

Inflation update: The Federal Reserve has hiked interest rates twice this year. But tepid inflation in recent months has complicated its future hike plans. On Aug. 11, investors will get a look at July inflation at the consumer level. If it is weak and stays south of the Feds 2% goal, the rate-hike schedule could be pushed back.

We apply a P/E below SIG’s 10-year forward average of 13.4X, to reflect challenges of negative same-store sales, offset by our favorable longer-term view of SIG’s market position. SIG today addressed recent headlines, but we still see risks, despite implied upside potential to our target.

Signet’s stock continued to fall after it released a statement pointing out that the class action didn’t involve sexual harassment, just whether women were paid less than men or passed over for promotions, as if that should make us feel better. Then it concluded by noting that it had “thoroughly investigated the allegations and have concluded they are not substantiated by the facts and certainly do not reflect our culture.” Because self-investigating always works.
