Nearly 60 years ago, a writer calling himself Bob Belmont published a modest little book with an immodest title: “How to Retire Without Money!” You aren’t likely to find it in your library, but you might come across a copy at a used book sale, as I did recently. I think I paid a quarter for it — and it was worth every penny.

Hot Penny Stocks To Invest In 2019

If you’ve ever gotten an email or seen an online advertisement pumping the potential to get rich buying penny stocks, you’re not alone. The perception that you’re “getting in early” on some great growth story is very appealing.

But here’s the catch: Most penny stocks that you see advertising as having generated big gains for their investors, quickly lose their value, wiping out people who fall for the scam. Furthermore, successful companies don’t start off as penny stocks. Great ideas with talented leaders get funded and go public with big financial backing. Great investing ideas like Amazon.com in the late 1990s and Microsoft in the early 1980s didn’t get discovered in the back of a penny-stock newsletter. 

But if you’re considering penny stocks, then you’re probably willing to invest in higher-risk stocks that could generate big returns for patient investors willing to ride out the ups and downs. Three Motley Fool contributors have identified NV5 Global Inc (NASDAQ:NVEE), Crispr Therapeutics AG (NASDAQ:CRSP), and Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) as risk-reward stocks well worth considering. 

Hot Penny Stocks To Invest In 2019: Sirius XM Radio Inc.(SIRI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    At least one bull is growing more bullish on Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). Bank of America/Merrill Lynch analyst Jessica Reif just boosted her share price target on the satellite radio giant from $7 to $8. She’s encouraged by the healthy pace of new car sales in the country — the lifeblood of Sirius, as new vehicles put it in front of potential new subscribers.

    Two of the hottest media distributor stocks in recent years are joining forces for a comedy radio channel. Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) announced on Wednesday that it will be teaming up with Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) for an exclusive satellite radio channel that will feature content from the streaming video service’s growing catalog of stand-up comedy.

    Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI), Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU), Fitbit (NYSE:FIT), GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN) are some of the big names with low prices that I’m watching these days. Let’s take a closer look at these seven stocks trading for $7 or less. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) is putting a little more change in the pockets of its shareholders. The satellite radio provider is increasing its payout, boosting its quarterly dividend by 10% to $0.0121 a share. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Shares of Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) hit a new 12-year high of $7.08 this week, and in terms of market cap the satellite radio provider has never been as valuable as it is right now. The market darling hasn’t traded this high since late 2005, and it’s fair to say that this was an entirely different company back then. Sirius had yet to merge with XM. The share count was substantially lower.

Top 10 Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019

Investors sometimes want to buy low-priced stocks because they can buy more shares, which is why penny stocks often seem attractive. You can control a lot of shares for very little money. Yet you also incur exceptional risk. If you move a bit up the price range and are looking at stocks in the $10-$20 range and want to reduce risk, you’ll need to look for companies with strong underlying businesses that carry substantial opportunity.

    Shares of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) continue to slump. The stock was off another 1%, a day after falling another eight percentage points. The downturn came after its CEO announced its industrial division will be cash-flow negative in 2019. Shares of PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP) were off 1% this morning after the stock received a downgrade from Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE: CS). While the Swiss bank called PepsiCo a “high quality” business, it raised concerns about its need to heavily invest over several years into struggling business lines and snack products. It also raised concerns about the ongoing competitive threats in the industry. CS set a price target for Pepsi at $100 per share, which is well below yesterday’s trading price of $116.

Top 5 Penny Stocks To Own Right Now

Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL) is deep into penny-stock land these days. A low-priced stock is often a bad investment. Just because it’s cheap, doesn’t mean it’s a bargain. Too often, while there can be huge gains in penny stocks, the risks are huge, as well. Given its recent problems, SDRL stock is not what it once was.

Seadrill used to be a high-flying company. Its shares traded in the double digits, offered a 10%-plus dividend yield, and appeared to be run by a brilliant manager. That perception has now changed.

Regardless of its past merits, the company has fallen on hard times. Its subsidiaries, such as North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. (NYSE:NADL), have lost virtually all their value. Drilling activity has declined sharply as the price of oil has remained persistently low. And now, even Seadrill looks to be facing a real risk of bankruptcy.

Trading for less than 50 cents a share, investors have to ask: Is SDRL stock a bargain here, or is it likely heading all the way to zero?

    Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) is right up there with Enterprise for having one of the best balance sheets among MLPs. That top-tier financial profile increases the company’s ability to sustain and grow its attractive 6.6%-yielding distribution. Magellan Midstream currently anticipates that it can increase that payout by another 5% this year and at a 5% to 8% rate in 2020 as it completes its current slate of expansion projects. That combination of healthy income, steady growth, and a top-notch financial profile makes Magellan Midstream an excellent option for risk-averse investors.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    If you are an investor in Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), you aren’t in it for the thrills of rapid growth and skyrocketing stock prices. Instead, you’re probably looking for a consistent, reliable business that will continue to churn out cash. If that is the case, then this past quarter’s earnings report was right up your alley. By no means was it exciting, but it was another quarter of delivering consistent results.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Buy For 2019

General Electric (GE) reported earnings last week, earnings that didn’t exactly thrill investors. Deutsche Bank’s John Inch has his own issues with General Electric’s earnings:

Photo: SEBASTIEN BOZON/AFP/Getty Images

Challenged organic order growth continued: General Electric reported Industrial organic equipment orders down 13% despite easy comparisons (Industrial organic equipment orders in 3Q15 were down 23%). This represented the fifth quarter in a row of down double-digit organic Industrial equipment orders for General Electric. General Electric’s signature gas turbine orders were down 50% to 11 units. (It was not that long ago that analyst(s) suggested the primary directional value driver for General Electric was the trajectory for gas turbines.)

As a long cycle company (and certainly the largest), General Electric’s orders are critical to determining its future profit growth from operations. Consequently, the down double-digit orders for 5 quarters bode poorly for the fundamental set-up into 2017 and the “hockey stick” EPS trajectory required to make “$2.00+” in 2018 which the company again reaffirmed as its target on the conference call.

Hot Penny Stocks To Watch Right Now: Transocean Inc.(RIG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    A wave of merger activity has swept across the offshore drilling sector in recent years. The latest news came on Monday when Ensco (NYSE:ESV) announced that it had agreed to buy Rowan in a $12 billion deal. That transaction occurred on the heels of Transocean’s (NYSE:RIG) agreement earlier last month to acquire Ocean Rig for $2.7 billion. Before that, Transocean bought Songa Offshore for $3.4 billion while Ensco acquired Atwood Oceanics.

    We asked three Motley Fool contributors to discuss one stock in the oil and gas space they think is a great buy right now. Here’s a rundown on their three picks: Diamondback Energy (NASDAQ:FANG), ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), and Transocean (NYSE:RIG).

    In this week’s episode of Industry Focus: Energy, host Nick Sciple, together with Jason Hall and Tyler Crowe, explain how offshore companies work, where the industry is today, and what investors should watch with these companies. Tune in to learn what sets Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL), and Ensco (NYSE:ESV) apart from each other, what kind of risk/reward profile each company has to offer, some critical points and trends investors need to know before diving into offshore, and much more.

    An issue of Transocean LTD (NYSE:RIG) debt rose 2.5% against its face value during trading on Wednesday. The high-yield debt issue has a 6.8% coupon and will mature on March 15, 2038. The bonds in the issue are now trading at $85.45. Price moves in a company’s debt in credit markets sometimes anticipate parallel moves in its share price.

    Quantitative Systematic Strategies LLC bought a new stake in Transocean LTD (NYSE:RIG) during the 1st quarter, HoldingsChannel reports. The institutional investor bought 13,609 shares of the offshore drilling services provider’s stock, valued at approximately $135,000.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    This was one of those quarters where Transocean’s (NYSE:RIG) results aren’t necessarily reflective of the company’s accomplishments. Even though Transocean posted yet another quarterly loss, the company completed a major acquisition and netted some notable contract wins. These won’t show up on the financial statements for a while, but they are indicative of a company poised to do better in the future.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: AAPL, DBX, STMP
    Shares of Dropbox Inc. (NYSE: DBX) plunged more than 10% after the company’s forward guidance fell well short of Wall Street expectations Thursday. Even though the firm topped quarterly earnings and revenue expectations, the cloud storage giant announced it would take a large write down on the value of its recent HelloSign acquisition. That will impact company margins in the year ahead, in addition to the firm’s plans to relocate offices to San Francisco, where rents are much higher. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) continues to remain in the headlines. The firm’s iPhone sales had been declining before the company decided to stop reporting unit sales beginning this year. But as Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald told readers in October 2017, Apple is no longer a device company. In fact, it hasn’t been a device company for years. Its shift into services has helped boost investor confidence, and it just made a major announcement that will target firms like Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Hulu. Apple is one of our top five stocks to buy right now. For the full list, go here now. Shares of Stamps.com Inc. (NASDAQ: STMP) plunged more than 50% in pre-market hours after the shipping products company announced it was ending its exclusive partnership with the USPS. The company also said it expected a massive downturn in profitability. The firm’s full-year guidance was set between $5.15 and $6.15. That is well below the $10.79 figure anticipated by analysts.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Nucor Corp.’s (NYSE:NUE) earnings more than doubled year over year in the second quarter, and were also up more than 90% sequentially. In fact, Nucor even outperformed its own expectations, and CEO John Ferriola noted that this was the strongest Q2 in the giant U.S. steel producer’s history.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Dominant U.S. steelmaker Nucor Corporation (NYSE:NUE) reported second-quarter financial and operating results before market open on July 19; it delivered its best profits in a decade, and the second most profitable quarter (and best-ever second quarter) in the company’s history. The company also delivered strong revenue growth and higher volumes, driving margins up as its facilities operated more efficiently under more demand.

  • [By ]

    Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE), one of the top manufacturers of steel products in America, announced in December 2017 it was increasing its regular quarterly cash dividend on its common stock to $0.38. The company has increased its regular or base dividends for 45 consecutive years. Since the implementation of tariffs on steel imports, the company has benefited from higher steel prices and reported surging profits.

  • [By ]

    In short, this is a complicated mess for investors. As with any big decree from Washington, there will be both winners and losers. Nucor (NYSE: NUE) bolted to near $70 per share on the announcement before profit-taking set in. But others could see rising costs or falling demand. Midstream energy companies, for instance, are already seeking exemptions, as imported steel accounts for nearly 80% of U.S. oil and gas pipelines.
