Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019

Each day, Benzinga takes a look back at a notable market-related moment that occurred on this date.

What Happened?

On this day 78 years ago, Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) agreed to begin manufacturing Rolls-Royce engines to assist the British in World War II.

Where The Market Was

The Dow closed at 121.46. The S&P 500 traded at around 9.70. Today, the Dow is trading at 25,322.31 and the S&P 500 is trading at 2,782.00.

What Else Was Going On In The World?

In 1940, Germany and Italy agreed to form a World War II alliance against France and the U.K. The popular comic book "Captain America" debuted, featuring the hero punching real-life Nazi leader Adolf Hitler on the cover of the first issue. Average monthly rent was $30.

Ford’s War Effort

In early 1940, Germany had already conquered Poland, Norway and Denmark and was on the brink of defeating France as well. The U.K. became increasingly aware that a German invasion was imminent, and the British government reached out to the U.S. for help. At the time, the U.S. had no intention of joining the war, but U.S. Office of Production Management director and former General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) president William Knudsen understood the importance of supporting U.S. allies in their fight against the Germans.

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.

  • [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 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.

    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.

    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) .

    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.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

The tide may be turning even sooner than I'd hoped…
 
It looks like investors have pushed growth stocks to historically high valuations relative to value stocks. Analysts at JPMorgan Chase say the spread between forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios has "become stretched."
 
At an extreme value of around seven, the spread isn't as high as early 2000 when it exceeded 10. But it's outside the normal range, at levels we haven't seen in more than a decade.
 
That's a huge change in the stock market. And it could mean a "Golden Age of Value Investing" is starting… with value stocks outperforming growth stocks for years to come.
 
It could also mean the current mania is on its last legs.
 
Yesterday, I began sharing our list of the common traits of speculative manias and how they're playing out right now. Today, let's continue with a look at two more of these traits…

    The phrase “over the top television” or “OTT” for short, aren’t exactly new terms. The phrase/abbreviation was coined shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television subscriptions a little less than a decade ago. The over-the-top battle didn’t get heated, though, until the past few months. But, now that some more gladiators are in the arena, sparks are starting to fly.

    They’re still flying too, and should do so for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to do with it it. See, while Netflix, Hulu — jointly owned by Time Warner, Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) — and a whole slew of other new players in this market may want to take notice of this up-and-comer. At the same time, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT business is going to be made over the course of the next several years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. Yes, it was the first on the scene as such was was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market. It’s largely become a commoditized business in the meantime though.

    For example, outside of Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the fray with a service called CBS All Access. The product allows subscribers -for a nominal monthly fee – access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found some measurable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), is another one of the alternatives to the alternative that’s truly made a dent in the over the top market…. by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that p
