Top 5 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2019

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.

Dollar Tree cuts its 2018 guidance

Shares of Dollar Tree plunged 14% after the dollar-store retailer announced its fiscal first-quarter results. The company said that revenue rose 5%, with Dollar Tree stores reporting a 4% rise in same-store sales. Yet the company’s Family Dollar stores underperformed, posting a same-store sales decline of 1.1% compared to the year-ago quarter. Executives blamed the subpar results on a cold spring, an early Easter holiday, and higher freight costs for moving goods to its store locations. Yet although the company said warmer weather has helped the business recover, Dollar Tree still cut its earnings projections for the full year, and investors seemed to ignore the potential long-term positives of strategic moves like refinancing its debt. The news came as a surprise to those who’ve seen dollar stores as outperforming their upscale rivals.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019

Defense stocks have been hot investments for more than five years, with many of the biggest defense contractors delivering more than double the S&P 500’s total returns. And while a substantial portion of that return has been the tremendous profit growth in the industry, investors have also been willing to steadily pay a higher premium for defense stocks, paying up front for future profits. And at some point, the defense spending cycle will turn, and the outsize returns of the past decade could turn into underperformance. 

But that doesn’t mean investors looking to add defense stocks to their portfolio should avoid the entire sector; there are opportunities to be had. These Motley Fool contributors have identified two companies with substantial military and commercial opportunities in AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ:AVAV) and Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA), as well as undervalued British defense giant BAE Systems PLC (ADR) (NASDAQOTH:BAESY) as defense stocks worth watching closely this month.

    The stock market had a tumultuous session on Wednesday, as major benchmarks started the day weak but bounced back in the afternoon. Investors weren’t happy with the current state of geopolitical uncertainty, with trade disputes threatening to become larger problems than ever. But the release of the minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy committee convinced many that the central bank will be slow to do lasting damage to the economic expansion, remaining measured in the pace of its interest rate increases. Moreover, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

Your smartphone knows your location well enough to send a car to where you’re standing in a busy city, map a morning run through the woods, or navigate inside an airport.

But if you call 911 from that same mobile phone, emergency responders will only have a vague sense of where to send an ambulance, fire truck, or police car.

The difference in distances can be the difference between life and death.

Apple is rolling out a new feature in its next iPhone software update to send emergency responders instant, precise location information in the US. The update, coming in iOS 12 later this year, calculates a caller’s location based on data collected from WiFi access points, nearby cellular towers, and GPS.

The tricky part isn’t finding out where a caller is — Apple has been using its hybrid location technology since 2015 — but relaying that information to a fragmented and aging 911 system built for landlines.

Of the 240 million calls made to 911 each year, more than 80% are from mobile devices, according to NEMA.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now

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 Own For 2019

Stocks couldnt shake off early losses and all three major indexes ended lower on Thursday.

Bloomberg News

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 210.79 points, or 1.17%, to 17830.76. The S&P 500 Index fell 19.34 points, or 0.92%, to 2075.81. The Nasdaq slid 57.85 points, or 1.19%, to 4805.29.

Blue chips were dragged down by Apple(AAPL): Just days after its disappointing earnings, billionaire Carl Icahn said he no longer has a stake in the stock.

From a data standpoint, First quarter gross domestic product grew 0.5%, below economists expectations, overshadowing an upbeat jobs report that saw unemployment fall to a four-decade low.

Stifels Lindsey Piegza writes that this could push out any interest rate hikes:

From a policy standpoint, should the U.S. economy post meaningful improvement between now and June, assuming the Feds concerns surrounding international risks are not reignited, policy makers appear well positioned to announce the second rate hike in less than two months time. Of course, following this mornings disappointing GDP report, its difficult to imagine a marked improvement in the economy over the next two months. More likely, the combination of stagnant economic conditions, a still-restrained consumer, and ongoing concerns regarding risks of contagion from developments abroad whether directly identified in the statement or not will make it increasingly difficult for the Fed to raise rates once in the remaining nine months of 2016, if at all.
