Hot Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

Widows and orphans have had a tough few months.   Long-term U.S. Treasury bonds – often cited as the safest investment on the planet and suitable for the most cautious investors – lost more than seven years' worth of income in just the past four months.   Lending money to the U.S. government for 30 years in exchange for a 2% yield turned out not to be such a good idea. Yields are now 50% higher than they were back in July. And these Treasury bonds, or "T-bonds," have collapsed in price.   But that has given us a fantastic risk/reward setup today…   Let's start by looking at this chart of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT)…

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019

&l;p&g;&l;img class=&q;dam-image shutterstock size-large wp-image-1048875812&q; src=&q;https://specials-images.forbesimg.com/dam/imageserve/1048875812/960×0.jpg?fit=scale&q; data-height=&q;640&q; data-width=&q;960&q;&g; Shutterstock

Blue chip stocks are among the worst retirement investments you can make.

There are several blue-chip stocks that will actually cost you thousands of dollars each year. We&a;rsquo;ll discuss three in a moment.

Sure, the financial media might lionize these stocks. But blue chips are simply big companies. When the term first came into being, it was simply an homage to the blue poker chip &a;ndash; at the time, the most valuable chip on the table. Before purples, oranges and grays began to grace the baize.

However, now the term comes with a boat load of perks &a;ndash; the simple assignment of the term &a;ldquo;blue chip&a;rdquo; is practically a buy recommendation. And therein lies the danger. Because in many cases, these larger companies have not only hit the end of their growth cycle, but are nearing the latter stages of their dividend growth cycle as well.

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One of the most notable has been ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), which first started buying back its stock in late 2016. The oil giant announced a $3 billion buyback in November of that year, which it planned to finance with asset sales. ConocoPhillips would go on to sell more than double the amount of assets it initially expected, which enabled the company to complete that authorization by the end of 2017. Meanwhile, it’s working to buy back another $3 billion in stock this year as part of a $15 billion program through 2020 that could also see the company retire 20% of its outstanding stock depending on its purchase prices. However, with shares of ConocoPhillips up 64% since announcing the plan — versus an 8% decline for Devon Energy — it’s not going to get as much bang for its buyback buck going forward.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One oil stock, however, managed to go against that tide and deliver superior performance. That standout was ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), which generated a market-smashing total return of 15.6% last year. It was the second straight year that ConocoPhillips vastly outperformed peers, which the company attributes to a strategy shift it set in motion in late 2016. The oil giant firmly believes its plan will continue to pay dividends for investors, which was evident by the comments of CEO Ryan Lance on the fourth-quarter conference call, where he laid out why he expects the company to continue prospering.

    Lang looked at a daily chart of Anadarko (APC) and Conoco Phillips (COP) , noting that Anadarko has been making higher highs and lows on strong volume, with a bullish MACD momentum indicator. Conoco has made a “W” shaped bottom with a bullish Chaikin money flow, signaling institutional buying. Lang and Cramer were fans of both names.

The firm owned 8,894 shares of the energy producer’s stock after purchasing an additional 1,695 shares during the quarter.

    "A trend we've seen developing slowly but steadily [is one] wherenew channels are being developed to reach cannabis consumers, primarily due to limits in advertising. There is so much regulation in the space that, in such an entrepreneurial environment where there are really no incumbent leaders, people are trying to be creative and figuring out ways to reach the cannabis consumer, both as an undeserved demographic and, just one that has still got that taboo around it, [leading] to larger players not necessarily getting involved yet."
