Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019

Malaysia’s stock benchmark slid for a fourth day, erasing its advance for 2018, after the government said national debt was higher than previously disclosed due to some masking of accounts by the previous administration.

The FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Index fell 1.4 percent to 1,778.41, the lowest since Dec. 27, as of 10:33 a.m. in Kuala Lumpur. It had slumped as much as 2 percent. The benchmark lost gains of as much as 5.5 percent this year, as bank shares led Thursday’s decline.

"People are selling first and asking questions later," said Clive McDonnell, the Singapore-based head of emerging market equity strategy at Standard Chartered Bank. "I don’t think that’s a surprise to see those outflows given the uncertainty until there’s greater clarity on economic management going forward."

There was sudden panic selling, said Ang Kok Heng, chief investment officer at Phillip Capital Management Sdn. in Kuala Lumpur. Still, "we are accumulating selected blue chips as these have been battered. The outlook of the economy would be better with good corporate governance and a government that is more efficient and fair."

    Daiichi Sankyo (OTCPK:DSKYF)

    There are 4 members of the EGF receptor family, but in cancer research we tend to focus mainly on the first two: EGFR and HER2. But we are also gaining a better understanding of the third family member, HER3, which is an odd duck because of its willingness to form dimers not with itself, but with other members of the EGFR family. And it is highly active in PI3K/Akt signaling, as well. So it’s no surprise that companies are trying to exploit this receptor as a therapeutic target. DSKYF’s U3-1402 is an antibody-drug conjugate targeting HER3 and delivering a lethal payload to tumor cells. This phase 1/2 study focused on the use of this agent in metastatic breast cancer overexpressing HER3.

Verizon (NYSE: VZ) is one of the safest investments among U.S. stocks. It has not done much to make people money on price alone over the last year. Verizon trades at $49, near the middle of 52-week high/low range of $55 and $43. However, the stock boasts a yield of of 4.8%. The company’s rock solid balance sheet and cash flow virtually guarantee that dividend, even in an economic downturn. Verizon’s revenue has been relatively flat around $120 billion for the last three years. Last year’s net was $21 billion, about flat from the previous year. Verizon’s biggest risk is margin erosion in the war for wireless subscribers in the U.S.

    It’s starting to feel like 2006 all over again. A report from CoreLogic indicates that U.S. home prices increased by a staggering 7.1% year-over-year in May. Home prices have been surging thanks to a sharp decline in available inventory across the country. However, there could be a snag in the housing market in the coming months.

best shares to invest in now: Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (DSKYF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    According to Bob Radie (see transcript of January 9th teleconference), the company’s president and chief executive officer, a key consideration in the denial was the FDA’s granting, in November 2016, rival product MorphaBond three-year exclusivity for the intranasal route of abuse. Significantly, though, even though MorphaBond – developed by tiny, privately-owned Inspirion Delivery Technologies – was approved in October 2015, it is yet to be commercialized. An October 25, 2016, marketing agreement between Inspirion and Japan-based Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. (OTCPK:DSKYF) suggests MorphaBond could be launched in the near future, but it’s also important to note that the aforementioned exclusivity expires on October 2, 2018, at which point Egalet will be able to include the clinical data from its intranasal abuse potential study in its label.

best shares to invest in now: Monro Muffler Brake, Inc.(MNRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Yesterday, shares of Monro Muffler Brake (MNRO) plunged 3.1% after Barron’s Leslie Norton panned the stock in this weekend’s issue of the magazine. And wouldn’t you know it? Monro’s shares are skidding lower once again today.

    Mike Mozart/JeepersMedia

    Norton’s argument was straightforward:

    At a recent $62, Rochester, N.Y.based Monro (ticker: MNRO) trades at a lofty 28 times forward earnings, compared with a 10-year average of 21.1, and 17 times earnings for the Standard & Poors 500. With sales growth slowing as competition increases, Monros strategic goal of achieving 15% annual sales gains and 20% profit growth seems distant.

    Any hint of more sluggish sales could push the shares down at least 10%. Bruce Geller, CEO of money manager Dalton Greiner Hartman Maher, who is short the stock, says, A fairly commoditized business with low organic growth deserves a more reasonable multiple of 20 times.

    That would put the stock in the mid-$40s.

    Shares of Monro Muffler Brake have dropped 4% to $57.59 at 3:49 p.m. today, leaving around 20% of downside.

    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.

    Eli Lilly & Co. (NYSE: LLY) saw its shares in free fall on Wednesday, not from the usual rhetoric of politicians or even the election, for that matter, but a late-stage trial failure. As 24/7 Wall St. has said time and again, clinical trials can make or break biotech and pharma companies. In this case Eli Lilly hit new 52-week lows, not seen since 2014 and this will not be a loss that Eli Lilly will easily forget. Effectively, the company announced results from its Phase 3 solanezumab trial in people with mild dementia due to Alzheimers disease (AD).

Top Casino Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (DSKYF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    According to Bob Radie (see transcript of January 9th teleconference), the company’s president and chief executive officer, a key consideration in the denial was the FDA’s granting, in November 2016, rival product MorphaBond three-year exclusivity for the intranasal route of abuse. Significantly, though, even though MorphaBond – developed by tiny, privately-owned Inspirion Delivery Technologies – was approved in October 2015, it is yet to be commercialized. An October 25, 2016, marketing agreement between Inspirion and Japan-based Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. (OTCPK:DSKYF) suggests MorphaBond could be launched in the near future, but it’s also important to note that the aforementioned exclusivity expires on October 2, 2018, at which point Egalet will be able to include the clinical data from its intranasal abuse potential study in its label.

    Deutsche Bank’s Jorge Beristain and Chris Terry released their earnings preview for the gold miners–including Barrick Gold (ABX), Goldcorp (GG), Franco-Nevada (FNV), and Coeur Mining (CDE)–and conclude that only one gold miner deserves a Buy rating: Newmont Mining (NEM). They explain why:

    “If you look back to the 70s, 80s and 90s, in every of those decades the industry found at least one 50+ million ounce gold deposit, at least ten 30+ million ounce deposits and countless five to 10 million ounce deposits. But if you look at the last 15 years, we found no 50 million ounce deposit, no 30 million ounce deposit and only very few 15 million ounce deposits,” Pierre Lassonde, chair of gold royalty and income stream company Franco-Nevada Corp. (NYSE: FNV), told German financial newspaper Finanz und Wirtschaft last October.

    Given revised commodity deck forecasts (particularly for Steel and Gold) and improved Balance Sheet health (Steels, Precious and Industrials Metals) we are upgrading our ratings on several stocks in our coverage. We generally favor companies that have already initiated specific self-help, have low-cost assets and are less exposed to China supply and demand dynamics. In Steels, we have increased our rating from Hold to Buy on Nucor (NUE) and from Sell to Hold on US Steel. We have also upgraded Kinross Gold (KGC) to a Hold on valuation…On higher-than-peer valuations, we reiterate Sell-rated Coeur Mining (CDE), Franco-Nevada (FNV), Goldcorp (GG), Teck Resources (TCK) and highly leveraged AK Steel given preference to issue further equity if possible.

    The top news of the month goes to Centerra Gold (OTCPK:CAGDF), which agreed to buy Aurico Metals (OTCPK:ARCTF) for C$1.80 in cash, a 38.5% premium, at a value of C$310 million ($243 million).

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Centerra Gold (OTCPK:CAGDF) bought out the previous owner of the Mt. Milligan Mine, Thompson Creek Metals, which really saved the asset for Royal Gold, as I explained in a past article. Mt. Milligan contributed $31.66 million of Royal Gold’s $106.9 million revenue this past quarter, or 29.6% of total revenue. I own shares of Centerra Gold, and I think Mt. Milligan is a strong asset that will contribute tons of cash flow for Royal Gold.
