    The company appears to have solved that problem by remaking itself as a sparkling water brand. Not only does that make the product more attractive from a pricing perspective as it’s competing with more expensive bottled waters, but the company is now benefiting from tailwinds in consumer trends as more consumers are drinking bottled and sparkling water in part because of its perceived health benefits compared to soda.Shares ofNational Beverage(NASDAQ:FIZZ) have soared recently on the strength of LaCroix, the flavored sparkling water brand that has developed a following among millennials.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

It does not seem as if legendary value investor Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio), founder of the Baupost Group, is very confident about the seemingly incessant rise in U.S. stock markets. That puts him at odds with Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), who seems as confident as ever in American markets.

In his recent letter, Klarman notes the markets are currently at “perilously high valuations.” Driving these valuations were “exuberant investors” who have “focused on the potential benefits of stimulative tax cuts, while mostly ignoring the risks from America-first protectionism and the erection of new trade barriers.” He believes the current political climate may “drive government deficits considerably higher,” potentially proving “quite inflationary, which would likely shock investors.”

Buffett has taken the opposite approach, deploying over $30 billion since the presidential election. Investments include roughly 43 million shares of Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) and just over 57 million shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL).

    But in the world of investing, it’s vital that we be able to trust the numbers companies report, and the Securities and Exchange Commission isn’t entirely sure we can when it comes to National Beverage (NASDAQ:FIZZ), seller of sparkling water LaCroix, as well as classic soda brands Faygo and Shasta. In essence, the SEC suggested that the company was being a bit too creative in terms of the metrics it was using to describe sales growth — possibly because the metrics themselves didn’t have a clear definition. So, what should Foolish investors think about all this? The guys have some advice.

    I’ve personally made several profitable investments over the last decade by simply observing my own buying habits. Here are a few recent examples:

    My family rarely eats out, but when we do we like to buy from healthier quick-service restaurants, such asChipotle (NYSE:CMG) or Panera Bread, instead of full-service restaurants or traditional fast food placesWendy’s or McDonald’s. My wife and I have eliminated soda from our lives. The only beverages that I drink now are water andStarbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) coffee. My wife prefers to drink sparkling water like National Beverages’ (NASDAQ:FIZZ) La Croix brand. We mostly buy organic food and we love to shop at stores like Whole Foods (now owned by Amazon.com) and Trader Joes. We ditched cable a few years ago and now all of our entertainment needs aremet by streaming services that are offered by Amazon.com, Netflix, and Alphabet’s YouTube. Most of our household items and gifts that are purchased online at Amazon.com or Wayfair.

    I’d bet that if you reviewed your credit card statements, you’d quickly recognize a few patterns as well. Ask yourself: Are there anyretails stores or restaurant concepts that you frequent now but didn’t before? Are there any new foods or drinks that you now buy from the grocery store? Have you become a raving fan of a particular website or app?

5 Quick Anthem Earnings Highlights for Agents

While author Michael Lewis was researching his book “Moneyball,” he was in the Oakland A’s locker room and noticed how unfit the naked players were when coming from the shower. When he mentioned to the manger that no one would know these guys were baseball players, the manager responded, “That’s the point, because those players were undervalued in the marketplace and one part of that was the way they looked.”

Much like an investment manager, the Oakland A’s were going into the market looking for undervalued products and “inefficiencies.” Lewis spoke to a packed room of investment managers attending the Morningstar Investment Conference in Chicago on Thursday.

His book “Flash Boys” looked at the world of high-frequency trading, the extreme of pure algorithmic trading. The book uncovered questionable trading methods of HFTs and shined a harsh light on stock exchanges, which allowed certain traders an edge and were providing kickbacks to brokers. Lewis noted that after the book came out, one huge manager measured the impact of HFT scalping on their portfolio and found it was 30 basis points lost per year, which on a $1 billion fund “is a lot of money,” Lewis said.

    Simon Property Group (SPG) is one of the biggest REITs, focusing on shopping malls and paying a 3 percent yield. But other specialty areas of the REIT universe pay much higher dividends, with REITs like Annaly Capital (NLY) that invest in mortgage-backed securities topping the list with double-digit percentage yields.
