Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2021

One solution gaining popularity: Get rid of the bolivar and replace it with the US dollar.

The idea is called dollarization. Ecuador, El Salvador and some small island nations have done it. Now it could be coming to Venezuela, widely considered the world’s worst economy not mired in an armed conflict.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

If you're like most investors, you've been led to believe that it's impossible to earn large amounts of investment income without taking big risks.   This idea – which you'll hear from many financial advisors and brokers – is simply wrong.   It is possible to earn double-digit annual yields on your money – safely – by selling options.   So why doesn't everyone use this strategy to earn consistent income streams? Below, you'll find the five common objections I've heard from readers or that I've found on the Internet… and my responses to them.   REASON NO. 1: Option-selling strategies like covered calls are too risky. You'll earn 5% in premiums, but if the stock falls 25%, you're still down big!   This objection is 100% valid. The way most people approach covered calls is risky. (If you're unfamiliar with covered calls, I encourage you to read this essay.) These folks buy risky stocks because risky, volatile stocks typically offer larger cash premiums than safe, stable blue chips. But most people end up losing on risky covered-call positions because their stocks fall in value.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Cheniere Energy, Inc.(LNG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Russell, TradeStation]

    Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSE: LNG) was a darling in the natural-gas frenzy that swept markets early this decade. Its planned fleet of massive tankers would carry America's abundant shale gas to Asia and Europe. Old smoke-belching coal plants would shut down and "carbon footprints" around the globe would shrink — all thanks to a new kind of technology based on super-cooled compressed natural gas.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Ask most oil and gas analysts or take a look at industry outlook presentations about liquefied natural gas and you will find one common theme among them: The recent completion of LNG export terminals means there is more supply than demand. If this were the case, then prices of LNG should be low today and Cheniere Energy’s (NYSEMKT:LNG) results wouldn’t be that great. And yet, the LNG export specialist’s most recent results paint a completely different picture. Not only did the company post better than expected results, but management raised its guidance for the second consecutive quarter. 

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    U.S. natural gas is increasingly powering the world, and it’s delivered as LNG — a product that’s Cheniere Energy’s specialty. But Cheniere isn’t just one entity, it’s two: Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG) and Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSEMKT:CQP). If you think liquified natural gas is a huge opportunity, you need to take a look a these two companies. Here’s a primer to help you decide which one is doing more for investors today.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    The Turkish lira is off 11% this morning, compounding the 20% slide that it faced last week. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his team have failed to reassure investors that they know how to manage their economy. The president has refused calls to raise interest rates in order to stabilize the currency. Instead, he blamed the United States on Sunday, arguing in a speech, “We will not give in. If you come at us with your dollars then we will find other ways to do business.” Elon Musk is facing a big lawsuit from investors who claim that he fraudulently schemed to hammer short sellers last week. The lawsuit comes just days after the head of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) sent out a tweet that claimed he was looking to take the company private and that funding at $420 per share had “been secured.” Musk failed to file an 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission before making the announcement, which pushed shares up significantly. Reuters also reported that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund has not shown any interest in helping to take Tesla private. Finally, shares of German chemical giant Bayer AG (OTC MKTS: BAYRY) slumped more than 11% after a U.S. jury awarded a groundskeeper $289 million in a ruling that the weed killer Roundup was responsible for his cancer. The chemical is produced by Monsanto, an agricultural giant that Bayer purchased last year. The ruling could set a precedent for thousands of other cases in the international court system that have made similar claims that Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Now what

Rogers shares have now gained 72% over the last 52 weeks, trading steadily near all-time highs. The maker of specialized materials used in battery systems and wireless antennas has consistently delivered solid earnings surprises over the last three years, often coupled with equally strong revenue wins.

This company is poised to continue making a killing in several emerging markets, including the Internet of Things and automotive computing. Best of all, Rogers is winning competitive contracts without resorting to pricing discounts. Trailing operating margins have increased from 12.4% to 14.2% over the last four quarters. In other words, clients are choosing Rogers over rival materials providers for other reasons than low prices, such as product quality and dependable ordering and delivery processes.

It’s critical to know whether a stock you plan on buying has an ex-dividend status, because in case it does, the dividend would be paid out to the seller. The person who owns the stock on the ex-dividend date will be awarded the payment, which means that you’ll have to wait for the next dividend cycle to receive your first dividend payout from the company.

On the other hand, share prices typically decline just after the ex-dividend date is declared, and usually by an amount equal to the expected dividend. So, this may give you the opportunity to identify a good entry point. If you’re planning on selling shares on or after the ex-dividend date, you'll receive the dividend payout from the company.
