Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Following billionaire investor Warren Buffett into stocks he owns has often been a profitable strategy over the past few decades. But reversing the order—buying a stock before Buffett buys it—can potentially be even more rewarding.

Quiz: How Well Do You Really Know Warren Buffett?

With that in mind, we went prospecting for companies that Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B, $137), Buffett’s holding company, has been buying recently, and four stocks that Buffett doesn’t hold but we think he ought to buy. We looked for the things he favors: com­panies that are leaders in their industries, that have a strong commitment to sharing profit with investors, and whose stocks sell for relatively low prices compared with earnings and underlying asset value.

A few caveats: First, even Buffett makes mistakes. Second, many of Berkshire’s picks are now made by Buffett’s two investing deputies, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler, not Buffett himself. And third, anyone guessing which stocks might be attractive to Berkshire is doing just that—guessing.

    When it comes to dividend stocks, Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) is a household name. In fact, the beverage giant just approved its 57th consecutive annual dividend increase, bumping it up to $0.40 per share and a juicy yield of 3.5%. But if investors are looking for even bigger dividend yields for their portfolios, three Motley Fool contributors suggest taking a peek at Macy’s (NYSE:M), Oaktree Capital Group (NYSE:OAK), and General Motors (NYSE:GM). Here’s why.

    In this Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill has a special guest — Foolish investor-at-large Tim Hanson — and they lead off with a discussion of the annual letter, released Wednesday, from billionaire investing guru Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK). In it, Marks expressed concern about the number of questionable deals happening in this low-interest environment, as an excess of optimism and high risk-tolerance send capital toward assets it should probably shun at current prices. Then Chris and Tim respond to a podcast listener who’s wondering whether he should keep holding on to his General Motors shares. Beyond that, there’s a timely retrospective on Tim’s time at the Fool, and an equally timely debate on a divisive and controversial question: Are fun-size Halloween candies “fun” or a travesty?

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now

In this article, I present the technical and fundamental metrics of the stock to conclude that JPM is rich in valuations and even though it may extend its rally, one must not make fresh investments at the current level. I will also provide a safer investing level for investors to consider.

I first discussed JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE: JPM) in my August article titled Bank On Banking Stocks To Make You Money in which I contended that,

“Recently, JPM shares entered into a contracting range, but from the looks of it, the stock may have pierced the resistance and is ready to revisit its all-time highs (and maybe higher). Indicators remain supportive, and further strengthen the bullish outlook.”

At that time, JPM was trading close to $65 per share and today it is trading close to all-time highs at $86.29. This is a fabulous return of more than 30 percent in less than 6 months.

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Orbital ATK, Inc.(OA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    On one particularly big news day, April 28, the DSCA announced that it has notified Congress of no fewer than seven separate pending arms sales that it plans to push through. These deals are aiming to sell:

    110 radar-seeking air-to-ground “HARM” missiles to Australia, generating sales of $137.6 million for prime contractors Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) and Raytheon (NYSE:RTN). Four P-8A Poseidonsubmarine-hunting jet aircraft to New Zealand — a $1.46 billion payday for Boeing (NYSE:BA). 13 76 mm cannonfor installation aboard Israeli Navy SA’AR 4.5 and SA’AR 6 Missile Patrol Boats at a purchase price of $440 million. (Italian firm Leonardo S.p.a.’s DRS North America subsidiary will be the contractor on that one.) Nine Bell 429light utility helicopters to Slovakia, yielding sales of $150 million for Textron (NYSE:TXT). And five CH-47D Chinookhelicopters, sold out of U.S. government surplus to Greece for $80 million.

    Also included in the DSCA’s list of pending contracts are two directed toward the NATO Support and Procurement Agency, specifically:

    Now consider that as of the last report, Americans owned 265 million guns — but fewer than 1 million silencers. That’s a huge market that American Outdoor Brands and Sturm, Ruger would love to sell into. Easing restrictions on silencer sales could have follow-on effects, too. Granting easier access to suppressors could reduce noise complaints at open-air shooting ranges, making it easier for such businesses to open, which would attract more customers, resulting in more ammunition being used, resulting in more ammunition being sold, resulting in more sales (and profits) for ammo makers such as Olin Corp (NYSE:OLN), Vista Outdoor (NYSE:VSTO), and Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA).

    Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) occupies a charmed space in the U.S. market for putting satellites in, er, space.

    At one end of the space launch continuum, you have United Launch Alliance, whose Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle, developed by Boeing (NYSE:BA), can put a payload massing in excess of 28 tonsinto orbit in a single launch — at a cost of $350 million.At the other end, new space start-ups like Vector Space are promising to launch a new generation of small satellites into low-earth orbit for prices as little as $2 million a shot.

    Last Monday, U.S. defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) announced it would buy Orbital ATK Inc (NYSE: OA), a direct Aerojet Rocketdyne competitor,for about $7.8 billion (a 22% premium to Orbital’s Friday close) in a deal thatwill give it greater access to lucrative government contracts and expand its arsenal of missile defense systems and space rockets. While Northrop already has a significant presence in payloads, it has not had launcher capability, an area that Orbital brings for both space and missile defense. Orbital also has contracts with NASA and the U.S. Army. The all-cash transaction is the biggest in the defense sector in two years and comes ahead of planned upgrades of U.S. ballistic systems (as the saber rattling by North Korea continues), which are expected to drive demand for missiles.

    On December 20, Green Car Reports reported: “Mitsubishi electric cars to use Nissan-Renault platforms.” Remember Mitsubishi has the US$22,995 all-electric 16 kWh iMiEV coming out in 2017.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, machinery, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

John Buckingham, editor of The Prudent Speculator, focuses on a widely-diversified portfolio of value-oriented stocks; here, he reviews two leading pharmaceutical firms with promising drug development operations.

Biogen (BIIB)

Biogen discovers, develops and delivers innovative therapies for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and autoimmune disorders.

While Biogen leads the $20+ billion global multiple sclerosis market with Avonex, Tysabri, and Tecfidera (which should secure the firm’s leadership for the next several years), shares are down since the election.

True, BIIB recently had disappointing results from what was thought to be a promising compound, but we are optimistic about its spinal muscular atrophy treatment, Spinraza, and its recent labeling by United Healthcare as proven and medically necessary.

We continue to like the prospects of Biogen’s pipeline, its strong free cash flow generation and its willingness to aggressively buy back shares while investing in the future.

    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

Best Bank Stocks To Own Right Now

Not enough to worry about?

In Tuesday’s Kass Insider I remarked that there are a number of factors contributing to my cautious near-term market view:

Narrow Market Leadership. We’re back to a market that’s basically led by the FAANGs — Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) , Apple (AAPL) , Netflix (NFLX) and Google/Alphabet (GOOG) , (GOOGL) . Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Alphabet are holdings in Jim Cramer’s Action Alerts PLUS. Rising Short-Term Interest Rates. The 2-year U.S. note yield is up about 1.3 basis points at 2.39%. Complacency. I’m seeing more investor complacency — anecdotally, in the business media and elsewhere — ever since market’s main indices rallied off of their recent lows. Gold. The rise in gold looks solid. I’m currently long the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD) . Lackluster Banks. We’re seeing disappointing action in the financials. However, I continue to buy them. I’m long Bank of America (BAC) , Citigroup (C) , JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) , although I’m shorting Goldman Sachs (GS) .
