Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

Sometimes I discuss stocks which sit out of my comfort zone, simply because they have a few characteristics which could be of interest to any kind of investor but don’t necessarily fit my portfolio. For example a blue chip stock which has features of positive capital gains combined with interesting dividend. In this case I am talking about Accenture (NYSE:ACN). A little bit more than a year ago, I covered this enormous IT consultant on Seeking Alpha.

I concluded that the firm is sometimes made fun of in the internet for its reputation to no surprise, but has excellent financial figures and a solid backlog. I thought based on current figures it would see another positive year in 2016 and the firm did not disappoint:

    Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) dropped 4.21% last week and shares are down 13.5% for the year to date.

    Investors were expecting good news from Target (NYSE:TGT) in its second-quarter earnings report. Peers like Walmart (NYSE:WMT) had recently announced accelerating sales growth thanks to strengthening economic trends and favorable weather patterns, after all. And Target’s management team said in late May that its recent customer traffic trend — the best rate the retailer had managed in a decade — had strengthened further into the first few weeks of the new quarter.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    There are two main reasons for this. For one, the company invests in properties occupied by tenants that have little to worry about from recessions, or from the e-commerce headwinds that are wreaking havoc in many areas of retail. Just to name a couple of examples from Realty Income’s top tenants, Walgreens (NASDAQ: WBA) sells things people need in good times and bad. Walmart (NYSE: WMT) offers bargains that online retailers have a tough time matching, and its low prices actually tend to help during recessions.

  • [By Anders Bylund, Leo Sun, and Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    The e-commerce platform acts a middleman, taking a small percentage of the value of each sale that occurs on its marketplace. That operating model differs from that of integrated giants like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), which own massive warehouses and shell out big money to build extensive fulfillment infrastructures.

Today, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedsmall cap professional services and technical solutions stock Cartesian Inc (NASDAQ: CRTN) as a long/bullish trade:

It’s a subtle clue from Cartesian, but still one worth noting… and acting on. That is, yesterday’s pullback only had to touch the 20-day and 100-day moving average line (blue and gray, respectively), to rekindle the budding bullish effort after months worth of sideways movement and a bullish breakout effort taking shape in just the past couple of weeks. The buyers have tipped their hand, so to speak, and sealed the deal with bullish crosses of several moving averages.

We’re getting in on this move very early, which means we’re getting in at a great price.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Simple, not easy. That may be one of the best ways to describe buy-and-hold investing. Finding great companies at great prices, buying them, and then hunkering down for the long haul is pretty simple. It gets difficult when your emotions start to take control and when you fail to update your thesis when new information arises.

That said, there may not be a better way to build wealth. It’s the tactic Warren Buffett relied on to become a billionaire. In fact, he didn’t reach the milestone until he turned 56 years old. Investors looking for great companies they can buy and hold for the next decade (or longer) should take a closer look at consumer water technology specialist A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS), lithium producer Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), and biopharma enabler Repligen (NASDAQ:RGEN).

Cashing in on China’s middle class

It’s quite possible most investors have never heard of A.O. Smith. That’s mostly because it operates primarily in the boring business of water heaters. While most homeowners in the United States only remember they own a water heater when it malfunctions and they need to replace it, many households in China have recently purchased their first water heater ever. That’s brought some excitement to the business in recent years.
