Top Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

Starbucks (SBUX ) announced on Thursday that CFO Scott Maw would retire, effective November 30th of this year, and serve in a senior consultant role through March of 2019. Maw, who has been in the CFO role for the last four years, did not offer any explanation as to the timing of the announcement. Considering Maw’s relatively young age and short tenure at the firm, analysts were caught off-guard by the news.

During Maw’s first two years as CFO Starbucks performed very well, with its stock value seeing nearly 73% in growth compared to an industry average of 14.3%. But since then things have slowed down, with the stock seeing a 20.7% decrease in value in from February of 2016 to the present. 

The news comes just weeks after Executive Chairman Howard Schultz, who oversaw the global expansion of the firm, said that he would step down from his position later this month.

The Facts

This slump is largely due to recent sluggishness in comparable store sales numbers. The firm’s Americas segment (accounting for 70% of total revenues) posted 3% comps growth in fiscal 2017, representing a notable decrease from the 6% growth of the previous year. Another concern stems from the company’s announcement earlier this month that it would close 150 poorly performing company-operated stores next year, about three more than its typical annual numbers.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019

Should I stay or should I go?

If you’ve been singing this 1981 tune by the English punk rock band The Clash to yourself since late September, you are not alone. 

In the fourth-quarter selloff last year, U.S. equities lost $4 trillion in combined market value. For those who had chosen to stay and not to go, a sharp market bounce has helped recover much of the losses: after the 17% rally off the December low, the S&P 500 has now returned to early January 2018 levels.

For the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100, the decline was deeper, but the bounce was sharper. At its lowest levels of 2018, the Nasdaq was down 23% from its highs. Since its December lows, though, it has rallied some 19%. 

As a result, the Nasdaq is now higher by about 10% from its 2017 levels.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019: GlaxoSmithKline PLC(GSK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    Around a year ago, the partners launched an eczema drug that’s already surpassed Praluent on the sales charts, and a possible expansion to asthma could send Dupixent sales through the roof. In studies supporting an application under review at the moment, Dupixent reduced severe attacks by up to 67% for some patients with uncontrolled asthma. It also led to lung function measurements that suggest it can compete with GlaxoSmithKline’s (NYSE:GSK) Nucula for a slice of a global market for asthma treatments expected to reach $56.5 billion by 2025.

    Because Heplisav-B requires fewer doses and is reportedly more potent than GlaxoSmithKline’s (NYSE:GSK) market-leading Engerix-B, investors seem to have gotten the impression that the vaccine’s commercial launch would be smooth sailing right out of the gate. The unfortunate reality, though, is that this is Dynavax’s first commercial launch of any kind, and it takes time to build relationships with key opinion leaders, third-party payers, and physicians.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Markets are cheering news that the supposed trade war between the United States and China is “on hold,” according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Mnuchin and U.S. President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, announced that both nations have reached an agreement, one that established a framework to help address ongoing trade imbalances between the two countries. The prices of crude oil is in focus after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro won reelection over the weekend. The election featured a very low turnout and a very large outcry that the vote was rigged. Maduro has a 75% disapproval rating and has been the face of the OPEC member’s widespread mismanagement and economic collapse. Prior to the election, a member of the Trump administration said that the United States would not recognize the authenticity of the election. The United States is considering additional sanctions on Venezuela. Today is a major day for mergers and acquisition activity. Today, Blackstone Group LP (NYSE: BX) announced plans to purchase U.S. hotel operator LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE: LHO) for a whopping $3.7 billion.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: CRM, GOOGL, DKS
    Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE: CRM) will report earnings after the bell. The cloud computing giant is expected to report earnings per share of $0.47 on top of $3.23 billion in revenue. With strong cloud-computing demand from businesses, expect a lot of anticipation around the company’s third-quarter forecast and full-year outlook. Investors will also be looking for an update on the impact of its acquisition of MuleSoft, the largest deal in Salesforce history. The White House is pressuring Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL) after President Trump accused the team behind the Google search engine of selective bias. Trump believes that Google has been hiding positive news about him, but he failed to provide any evidence to his claims. Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, said the White House is “having a look” at Google, but didn’t provide any details on the plan. Shares of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) are on the move thanks to a big upgrade from Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS). Analysts at the investment bank hiked their price target for AMZN stock to $2,500 per share. That figure would push the e-commerce giant’s market capitalization to a whopping $1.2 trillion. This is the highest price target among the 41 analysts covering the stock, according to data from FactSet. Look for additional earnings reports from Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (NYSE: DKS), American Eagle Outfitters Inc. (NYSE: AEO), PVH Corp. (NYSE: PVH), Guess? Inc. (NYSE: GES), Express Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPR), and Tilly’s Inc. (Nasdaq: TLYS).

    Turnarounds are always difficult, because no investor wants to wait forever for a recovery. Guess? (NYSE:GES) has dealt with the normal ups and downs of its market as well as some unusual situations affecting its reputation, and that’s made some people think twice about counting on the jeans maker’s attempts to mount a full turnaround.

    Several apparel retailers recently disproved the bears, who believed that sluggish mall traffic, e-tailers, and fast fashion players would bury older clothing stores.

    Wall Street had a down day on Thursday, with the trade-sensitive industrial side of the market seeing the largest declines on news that the U.S. and Canada had imposed a set of matching tariffs on each other. The Dow lost more than 200 points, but declines were somewhat less extensive on a percentage basis for other parts of the market. Crude oil prices also moved lower, and the general sense among investors was one of uncertainty about how these initial disputes would evolve over time. Moreover, some bad news from key sectors of the economy weighed on individual stocks. Dollar Tree (NASDAQ:DLTR), Guess? (NYSE:GES), and Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    On Tuesday, the Trump administration said it would press ahead with 25% tariffs on roughly $50 billion in Chinese goods.

    Ahead of Friday’s jobs report, Automatic Data Processing (NYSE: ADP) reported that private jobs increased by 178,000 during May.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: KORS, HP, KMI
    Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: KORS) stock was off 3.2% in pre-market hours after the company reported earnings before the bell. The luxury retailer reported earnings per share (EPS) of $0.63, a figure that topped Wall Street expectations of $0.60. The firm also beat revenue expectations and reported an increase in same-store sales. However, the firm’s earnings forecast for the year ahead came in lower than expectations, a factor that pushed its stock lower on Wednesday morning.
    Shares of HP Inc. (NYSE: HP) were up slightly after the company raised its full-year outlook and topped Wall Street earnings expectations on Tuesday. The company cited stronger demand in desktops and notebooks for its financial performance. The firm matched EPS expectations of $0.48. However, revenue came in at $14.0 billion, a figure that easily beat forecasts of $13.59.

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.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    The markets are upbeat about the latest reports surrounding trade between the United States and China. Despite news that roughly $16 billion in fresh tariffs are going into effect this week on Chinese goods, markets are hoping that momentum begins to build ahead of discussions between leaders of world’s two largest economies. With that said, President Trump downplayed upcoming discussions in an interview with Reuters on Monday. Back on June 21, I wrote about a fast-moving, high-profit stock – Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: DDE). And that recommendation has brought in gains of roughly 103% since then.

Top 10 Casino Stocks For 2019: Rockwell Collins, Inc.(COL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    Third Point’s first-quarter letter to investors outlined the position in United Technologies and the rationale behind Loeb’s belief that breaking up the company is the best way forward for investors. For reference, the multi-industrial company comprises four segments: Otis elevators; UTC climate controls & security (CCS), specializing in air-conditioning, refrigeration and security; UTC aerospace systems (UTAS); and Pratt & Whitney, maker of aircraft engines. Loeb’s key points are as follows:

    The company’s one-size-fits-all approach has led to a “well-documented history of poor management execution.” A spinoff would create value in the manner of recent precedents in the industrial sector, and allow for more-focused management of the newly created companies. The failure of the market to value United Technologies appropriately to its intrinsic value reflects how investors value aerospace companies (with a long-term perspective, which acceptsnear-term losses on multiyear programs) and multi-industrial companies (by using multiples of next year’s earnings). Shareholders are best served by splitting up the company into three separate ones, specifically Otis; CCS; and an aerospace company built from UTAS, Pratt & Whitney, and the impending acquisition of Rockwell Collins (NYSE:COL).

    To this, I would add that there’s a bewildering number of investment decisions you need to make before buying United Technologies stock right now. For example, you might be worried about growth in construction in China (Otis), or long-term prospects for aerospace suppliers against margin pressure from Boeing and Airbus (UTAS, Rockwell Collins) trying to cut costs or compete directly, or even margin pressure on air-conditioning products (CCS) from rising raw-material costs. All of which give you a good reason not to buy the stock.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2018

Corcept Therapeutics (CORT) has started February on a very bad note as general market volatility (in part a response to the January momentum run) and potential entrance of generic competition has shaved off 40% of the value of the shares. This is despite a very strong outlook for 2018.

While binary events, in terms of generic competition invading the market, remain very tricky events to analyse, I believe that legal and alternative products give the company ammunition to fend off competition quite a bit. As a result, I am looking to initiate a small speculative position at these lower levels.

A Look At The Past

Corcept Therapeutics has been established back in 1998 after which the company went public in 2004. Shares fell quickly from levels above the $10 mark to less than a dollar by 2006. No working product and continued losses resulted in cash burn and continued dilution (at low prices) which made that shares traded in low single digits in the years to follow.

The company obtained FDA approval for Korlym in February of 2012. This approval came in for the treatment of hyperglycemia secondary to hypercortisolism in adult patients with endogenous Cushings syndrome who have type 2 diabetes or glucose intolerance. Candidates furthermore have had to undergone a failed surgery or deemed not considerable for surgery. This is an orphan indication with a US patient population of an estimated 20,000 patients, while every year 3,000 new patients are diagnosed.

Since the beginning of the year, Japanese equities have been one of the worst performing developed markets. Despite the most expansionary monetary policy in the world, Japanese markets plummeted by the greatest percentage in the first seven months of the year and showed no signs of recovery. However, from the second half of the summer, the dynamic of the market started slowly turning back to the bullish territory.

Looking at the chart of the major currency pair dollar yen, one can notice that the dollar successfully defended key technical support at 100 yen per dollar and jumped above the EMA 200 in a very short period of time. The long-term trend line is also clear. Since Mr Kuroda assumed the office of the Governor of the BoJ in March 2013, the value of the yen started vanishing at an accelerating pace. Hence, in the light of the massive monetary stimulus, the recent appreciation of the yen can be seen as a technical correction in the main – long-term – trend.

(Shorting options frequently ends differently!)   Just say no to closed-end muni-bond funds.   DRYS is all wet.   Could iPhone manufacturing be coming back home?   On inflation breakevens–a picture that speaks volumes.   The market moved higher from the “get go”–in large measure it seems to be a response to the better economic data this morning.   At 3 p.m. stocks were near the day’s highs.   I shorted The Cisco Kid last night. Sticking with this short rental. I added to my ProShares UltraShort S&P500 ETF ( SDS) long (growing ever larger). My net short exposure–is now between small and medium-sized at the close. The U.S. dollar, as discussed above, continued to rip higher against the euro. I am concerned. Mark Grant is concerned. The market is not concerned. The price of crude oil (down $0.20) settled lower after yesterday’s robust gains. Gold fell $9 as it continues to break down–closing in on $1,200.
