Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Thursday there’s no question a basket of U.S. stocks will do better over time than bonds.

Stocks are “considerably more attractive,” Buffett said in an interview with CNBC’s Becky Quick on “Squawk Alley.” “Over time, a bunch of businesses that are earning higher returns on capital are going to beat a bond that’s fixed at roughly 3 percent.”

When he asked whether he’s buying stocks, Buffett said, “We’re buying stock this morning.”

Buffett, also known as “The Oracle of Omaha,” said he’s bought stocks under every U.S. president. He added the reason stocks are worth “a whole lot more” than decades ago is because American corporations have “plowed back part of the earnings.”

Buffett continued, “You can [also] buy a duplex next door and rent it out to people and do fine over time or you can buy a small piece of farm land or something or you can put it into something fixed income — bonds, bank deposits.”

    Just as promised on its first-quarter earnings call, General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) has announced a deal to exit its transportation business as part of a wider plan to unload $20 billion worth of assets. The deal to merge GE transportation with Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies (NYSE:WAB), or Wabtec, is somewhat complicated, but in general can be seen as a near-term positive for shareholders. However, it will do little to appease dyed-in-the-wool bears worried about the sustainability of the company’s dividend and restructuring prospects. Let’s take a look at both sides of the story.

    Wednesday was a generally favorable day for the stock market, with modest gains for most major benchmarks even as the Russell 2000 once again hit intraday record highs. Most investors’ attention was focused on the retail sector, where an especially strong performance from department store giant Macy’s suggested that the long period of difficult conditions for brick-and-mortar retailers might finally have come to an end. Ongoing concerns about other factors — including the move in the 10-year Treasury yield above the 3% mark and the outcome of a possible summit between U.S. and North Korean leaders — helped keep the gains somewhat in check. But some companies had good news that sent their shares sharply higher. Under Armour (NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA), Boot Barn Holdings (NYSE:BOOT), and Abaxis (NASDAQ:ABAX) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Earnings season will continue Friday. But the big buzz is coming from Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC), which reported after the bell yesterday. Shares plunged more than 24% after a dismal earnings report, weak forward guidance, and news that the firm was slashing its once reliable dividend. The firm wrote down the value of its Kraft and Oscar Meyer brands by $15 billion, slashed its dividend by 36%, and reported a whopping $12.6 billion loss. Wall Street also did not like the news that the SEC issued a subpoena in October 2018 to investigate the company’s accounting practices.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Not many experts would recommend packing investment accounts like 401(k) retirement plans with bitcoin. The digital currency is just too volatile. But there’s nothing wrong with setting a little aside — money you can afford to lose — for wild bets, like gambling a few bucks at a casino.

Mike Segar | Reuters There are two ways to bet on bitcoin: via a specialized exchange, or through buying and selling futures contracts.

Bitcoin certainly offers an adrenaline rush. In 2017 the price of the cryptocurrency soared from less than $1,000 to nearly $20,000, then tumbled to less than $8,000 early this year. It’s just a tad higher today.

    Friday was mixed on Wall Street, with the Nasdaq Composite eking out minor gains even as most other major benchmarks finished down modestly. Market participants seemed largely content to see how things played out on the geopolitical front between the U.S. and North Korea, and key reversals in other financial markets helped send 10-year Treasury rates back below 3% and also resulted in a substantial drop in crude oil prices. Despite generally quiet conditions, bad news sent shares of certain companies lower. Accuray (NASDAQ:ARAY), Cincinnati Bell (NYSE:CBB), and Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    On June 27, shares of Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL), Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc (NYSE:DO), and Ensco PLC (NYSE:ESV) traded up more than 10% at various points. And while they’ve cooled off a bit — up 9.9%, 10.3%, and 8.9%, respectively, at recent prices — they continue to march toward today’s close with big gains. And while not quite as much as the three aforementioned companies, shares of Transocean LTD (NYSE:RIG) and Noble Corporation PLC (NYSE:NE) are showing big days as well, up 6.4% and 7.2% in late-afternoon trading.

    Frankly, today’s big drop shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone. The company told us many months ago that common equity investors would only retain 2% — at most — of the company when it completed its bankruptcy proceedings, yet investors continued to pay a price for its stock that, at one point, would have made Seadrill worth nearly as much as competitors Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), and Noble Corporation (NYSE:NE) combined. But a relatively steady decline in the share price, combined with today’s big drop, seems to be finally putting Seadrill more in line with its peers.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now

Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN) delivered strong results on Tuesday beating on the bottom line, but missing on the top. Personally, I love what I see at the top and bottom lines for WYNN stock.

The Macau nightmare appears to have come to an end, and it seems to me that the company is back on track. With Elaine Wynn also restructuring the board of directors, the goal appears to be wiping WYNN stock clean of any vestiges of her ex-husband’s sexual misconduct allegations.

Overall operating revenues for WYNN stock rose more than 20% to $1.72 billion. That came on the back of a 25% increase in casino revenues to $1.24 billion. Backing out the massive $464 million litigation settlement for the quarter, operating income came in at $382 million, up more than 50% from last year’s $250 million. Net income before income taxes came in at $225 million, up substantially from last year’s $135 million.

All in all, these numbers look pretty darn good to me. However, we want to drill down to make sure not missing anything.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, PFE, AAPL
    Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) will likely generate a lot of buzz on Monday. Three days ago, company CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla would remain a publicly traded firm. The statement comes just weeks after Musk tweeted that he had secured investment to take the company private at $420 per share. That tweet spurred an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and a lawsuit by short sellers of Tesla stock. TSLA shares were off 3% this morning. All eyes today are on Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) stock. The drug giant is poised to release the results of its phase 3 study for its drug Tafamidis. The specialty drug targets a heart disease known as transthyretin cardiomyopathy. Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) hit a historic milestone on Aug. 2. The tech giant’s market capitalization topped $1 trillion, making it the first firm to ever hit that value. The company continues to churn profits as more firms tap into its product pipeline. AAPL stock predictions are a dime a dozen, but the fact is that this stock remains a bargain because of its price/earnings ratio. We explain why AAPL stock is still a bargain. Look for earnings reports from HEICO Corp. (NYSE: HEI) and American Wordmark Corp. (Nasdaq: AMWD).

    Last year, competitor Medtronic ushered in a new era in blood glucose control when it launched the MiniMed 670G, the world’s first artificial pancreas system. Medtronic uses its own CGM in its system, but competing systems incorporate DexCom’s CGMs. In June, Tandem Diabetes (NASDAQ:TNDM) secured FDA approval for a solution that pairs its insulin pump up with the G6. Insulet (NASDAQ:PODD) and Eli Lilly & Co. (NYSE:LLY) are in late-stage studies of their own systems that rely upon DexCom’s CGMs, too.

L Brands (LB) ended at the bottom of the S&P 500 on Thursday, after disappointing guidance overshadowed better-than-expected earnings.

L Brands slid $9.19, or 15.8%, to $48.94, its lowest close since 2013. By contrast, the S&P 500 gained 0.99 points, or 0.04%, today to 2363.81.

Oppenheimers Anna Andreeva and Samantha Lanman reiterated an Outperform rating and $75 price target on the stock, but admit that the magnitude of L Brands downward forecast was disappointing, even with weak industry trends signaled by peers like Wal-Mart (WMT), Macys (M), and TJX Cos. (TJX).

While they still are bullish, they admit that the bottom isnt clear:

In the last 5 years, LB’s multiple averaged in high-teens given quality of brands/management, with 13-14x trough not seen since early ’13valuation could still compress assuming guidance isn’t conservative enough. Sticking with Outperform for now, albeit near-term visibility is worsening.

    Where most new car dealers are limited in the number of brands they can sell, Costco Wholesale Corp. (NASDAQ: COST) has no such limitation. The membership shopping club functions as a broker for its members, negotiating a price on their behalf that is typically right around the dealer invoice price.

  • [By Danny Vena]

    There was plenty to like when Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) reported its third-quarter financial results. Even in a tough environment for traditional retailers, Costco was able to deliver growth that largely beat the expectations of investors.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    However, BJ’s Wholesale Club is clearly inferior to its larger competitor Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ:COST) in several key respects. This makes it vulnerable to Costco’s ongoing growth in the long run. That’s why I am steering clear of BJ’s stock.
