Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

"Short Sellers Retreat Amid Rally," ran the headline in the Wall Street Journal.   Curious readers stopped and stared. It was the premise of the headline that arrested them. Who knew that there was even one bear left to give ground at the 100-month mark of the post-2008 levitation?   El toro is the topic at hand. It's a most unusual bull market (we count as one the updrafts in stocks and bonds). An unzestful, low-volume, and low-volatility affair, it seems to belong on a psychiatrist's couch. We write to catalogue its singularities with the purpose of addressing the always pertinent question: What to do with money besides enjoy it?   No. 1 is the zest deficit. Since the S&P 500 Index bottomed at an intraday low of 666.79 on March 6, 2009, the blue chips have appreciated by 271%. The country has grown, too, although – famously – the economic expansion leaves much to be desired. Trailing 12-month earnings for the S&P 500 peaked in the third quarter of 2014, and disappointments abound in the data that purport to measure growth in GDP and productivity.

    That’s why I own several high-yield stocks. However, of that group, three currently stand out as having the greatest probability of delivering market-beating returns from here:Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), Brookfield Property Partners (NASDAQ:BPY), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Because they’re my highest conviction ideas, I’d buy any one of them right now.

    Stock No. 5: That leads us to our “L” stock, and L is Live Nation (NYSE:LYV). This is the company that was formed by a merger of Live Nation, the concert venue and rock-star-promoting business that it is. So many musicians, today, of course, make most of their money on tours, since the sale of CDs, you might have noticed, has dropped off a cliff in recent years. Live Nation, then, bought a merger with Ticketmaster, so this is the company that sells you the tickets to come into its venues to watch the entertainment that it’s promoting. It’s a tremendously powerful model.

    This has major financial institutions issuing warnings ahead of one of the biggest technological shifts in the history of the world.

    The Top Cryptocurrency Stories for Wednesday
    Yesterday, one of Bitcoin’s biggest proponents once again released an extremely bullish outlook on the cryptocurrency. Billionaire investor Tim Draper said Tuesday that “Bitcoin is bigger than the Internet,” and he also said its influence will be even bigger than the Industrial Revolution, the Renaissance, and the Iron Age. The statement comes after he released a recent price target of $250,000 by 2022. Not everyone is buying into Bitcoin’s post-tax season rally. Bill Harris, the former CEO of PayPal Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: PYPL) and Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), sounded off Tuesday in an op-ed piece titled “Bitcoin Is the Greatest Scam in History.” Harris called the cryptocurrency a “colossal pump-and-dump scheme” that has no precedent on the world stage. Bitcoin proponents immediately took to social media and online blogs to refute Harris’ arguments. Forbes contributor Kyle Torpey vented that Harris’ focus was misguided and took special issue with his claim that “Bitcoin has no value.” The crypto world has identified JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon as public enemy No. 1. Computer security pioneer and cryptocurrency guruJohn McAfeecalled out Dimon for attempting – and failing – to “end crypto.” McAfee lobbed a slew of accusations at the big banker via Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR). Finally, it wouldn’t be another day in the cryptocurrency markets without another unprovoked threat to Bitcoin. The latest comes from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In a recent issue of the MIT Technology Review, writers presented three scenarios that could “destroy Bitcoin.” The scenarios include a “government takeover” of the cryptocurrency, the “tokenization of everything” that involves a massive influx of tokens and makes Bitcoin less valuable, and a mas
