Best Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019

Three minutes of frantic trading in Treasuries futures just offered a stark reminder of the danger of betting against the world’s safest asset.

What was shaping up as a second straight day of losses in Treasuries on Thursday, with 10-year yields threatening to hit the key psychological level of 3 percent, turned around in a hurry as turmoil in emerging markets spooked global investors.

Traders pointed to Brazilian officials’ unsuccessful efforts to stem the free-fall in their currency as the trigger for the wave of Treasuries buying. But the rush was magnified because investors were caught offside — there had been a dramatic increase in short bets against U.S. government debt in the past week.

The abruptness of the move, which drove yields on benchmark 10-year notes plunging as much as 9 basis points to 2.88 percent, was apparent in the futures market: From 1:33 p.m. New York time to 1:36 p.m., more than 100,000 contracts on 10-year futures changed hands. To put that in context, that’s more than the 80,000 that traded over a similar span at the time of Friday’s release of U.S. labor data.

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now

Dividend growth investing can be a great way to boost your passive income over time. To do it right, though, you have to find stocks that can both grow their dividends faster than inflation and have sustainable free cash flows for the long haul.

Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD), a blue chip biotech stock, meets both of these critical criteria. Even so, this top biotech is rarely considered purely for its prospects as a dividend growth stock. The reason? Gilead only started doling out a dividend approximately three years ago this month. As a result, the company has yet to shed its well-earned image as a top growth stock within the broader investing community.

However, I think this underappreciated dividend growth play is worth adding to your portfolio right now. Here’s why.

Gilead’s risks are overstated

There are two big knocks against Gilead as a dividend growth stock. First off, the company’s hepatitis C franchise has literally imploded since hitting a high watermark in late 2015. Gilead has thus had to rely on its core HIV franchise to pick up the slack, and that strategy has so far failed to keep the company’s top line moving in the right direction. Despite several new product launches in HIV, the biotech’s top line remains on track to drop by a disastrous 20.3% this year.

Best Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019

On Thursday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer suggested the Trump administration will soon crack down on state laws regarding recreational marijuana use.

“I do believe that you’ll see greater enforcement,” Spicer said, while adding that the exact issue is a “question for the Department of Justice.”

Spicer also clarified the administration is solely focusing on recreational use of the drug, which is now legal in eight states.

“Again there’s a big difference between the medical use… that’s very different than the recreational use, which is something the Department of Justice will be further looking into,” Spicer added.

Indeed, Trump’s new attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has been an outspoken critic on the nation’s burgeoning marijuana industry.
