Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

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.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Fasten your seat belts. Dramatic swings in the oil market may soon become the norm.

After a prolonged period of low prices and relative calm, oil watchers are predicting a surge of volatility following President Trump’s decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran. Crude has spiked 19% this year, to prices unseen since late 2014.

Taking away Iranian oil after production cuts by Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Russia effectively means the margin for error in the market will become razor-thin.

In 2015 and 2016, there was so much supply that crude prices crashed. Now that buffer has been worn down so much that the market is extra-sensitive to geopolitical dangers and other shocks.

But that’s not all. Other powerful drivers are likely to jerk oil prices around, including the resurgent US dollar and a surge in production from Texas shale fields.

“Without a doubt, there are a variety of forces that could upset the balance and move us into a more volatile period,” said Ben Cook, portfolio manager at BP Capital Fund Advisors, an energy investment firm.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019: Golar LNG Partners LP(GMLP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Friday was a good day on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average once again climbing triple digits and other major benchmarks following suit with similar-sized percentage gains. The U.S. economy continued to move forward last month, and the latest jobs numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed ongoing progress in creating new positions and reducing unemployment rates. Yet some stocks weren’t able to join in the celebration that accompanied the strong economic report. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Golar LNG Partners (NASDAQ:GMLP), and Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE:ANF) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Media stories about Golar LNG Partners (NASDAQ:GMLP) have trended somewhat positive on Monday, according to Accern Sentiment. The research firm rates the sentiment of news coverage by reviewing more than 20 million news and blog sources in real time. Accern ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of negative one to one, with scores closest to one being the most favorable. Golar LNG Partners earned a media sentiment score of 0.23 on Accern’s scale. Accern also assigned media stories about the shipping company an impact score of 46.501475004652 out of 100, meaning that recent news coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an effect on the stock’s share price in the near future.

Hot Medical Stocks To Invest In 2019

Planning for retirement generally means taking a close look at your personal needs and goals, as well as those of the person you’re married to. But when you and your spouse have a wide age gap, retirement planning can become a bit trickier. Not only are you less likely, in that scenario, to retire simultaneously, but there may also be consequences to one of you leaving the workforce well ahead of the other. Therefore, be sure to consider the following factors when you’re dealing with a significant age gap.

1. Health insurance

Medicare eligibility begins at age 65, so if you retire then and give up your group health plan at work, you’ll have coverage right away. But if your spouse gets his or her health insurance through you and your employer, and he or she is not yet eligible for Medicare, you’ll need to collectively figure out what to do about medical coverage. Though you can obtain insurance through COBRA, the cost can be prohibitive, and your maximum coverage period is generally 18 months. Buying insurance on the open market is also an option, but you might find yourself spending quite a substantial amount of money for coverage that’s mediocre at best.

Top Blue Chip Stocks For 2018

What a silly stock market. There I was on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. waiting for the Dow Jones Industrial Average to crash 1,700 points as Trump verbally ripped Iran to shreds (and pulled out of the Iran deal). The Dow instantly tanked 80 points one sentence into Trump’s latest global spectacle. But then the Blue Chip index rallied back as Trump continued to hit Iran, and actually finished the session higher. As a 15-year old would put it: #WTF.

For an already jittery market to be able to shrug off major news of this kind is nicely short-term bullish…or is it.

“Couple of thoughts. First, there’s genuine confusion right now about the value of strength. We like strength in employment because there’s no real wage inflation. We like strength in commodities because it means the world’s not slowing down. And we like strength in consumer spending like we heard last night in Disney (DIS) and we have been hearing for weeks now in earnings season,” writes TheStreet’s founder Jim Cramer over on RealMoney on the weird move in the markets Tuesday. In effect, we could be in a short-term good news is good news environment for stocks. That’s an environment where you load back up on cyclicals and hot tech names like Netflix (NFLX) (which could be acquired by Action Alerts PLUS holding Microsoft (MSFT) in within two years, reports TheStreet’s Katherine Ross).

Top Blue Chip Stocks For 2018: Zions Bancorporation(ZION)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nelson Hem]

    See what Barron's feels the prospects are for Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE: ETP) if it cuts its distribution and dumps its general partner, and salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM) with its generous potential upside. Also whether regional banks like Zions Bancorp (NASDAQ: ZION) could see a boost from a proposed regulatory change, and the sweetheart deal the Koch brothers got with Meredith Corporation (NYSE: MDP).

  • [By ]

    This Utah-based bank is out with its results on April 23. And ahead of this all-important date, top Vining Sparks analyst Marty Mosby has upgraded Zions (ZION) from ‘Buy’ to ‘Strong Buy.’ He writes” “We believe that Zions should be able to generate stronger revenue per share growth than the market currently anticipates, as it should benefit from both rising interest rates and their respective strategic initiatives.”

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    In the super-regional banks that are not money center banks, Regions Financial Corp. (NYSE: RF) was up 6.3% at $13.22, and Zions Bancorporation (NASDAQ: ZION) was last seen up 3.8% at $38.30. They would both do better with lower regulatory costs and be able to better compete against larger banks when their stress test results had not been as strong.

Top Blue Chip Stocks For 2018: Hitachi Ltd (HTHIF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Some of the larger companies that have begun incorporating blockchain into their industries include:

    Overstock.com (OSTK) , once a retail company, has become one of the biggest blockchain options on the stock market. The company has developed tZERO, a cryptocurrency and blockchain-based registry that complies with the regulations of the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. IBM (IBM) has developed blockchain technology that they are using with a large variety of partners in a large variety of industries. One example is their partnership with food retailers, most notably Walmart, to help quickly, efficiently, and securely track the supply chain to help ensure ideal food safety. They have also partnered with Maersk to work on a blockchain platform for global trade. Hitachi (HTHIF) , the Japanese conglomerate that has worked on social infrastructure and IT systems, among other industries, has begun dabbling in blockchain. It has released reports about how it believes the technology can positively impact the financial sector, and how it could potentially be used to create new services for businesses.

    There are also ETFs that one can invest in that hold a number of stocks related to blockchain. For example, the Reality Shares Nasdaq NextGen Economy ETF (BLCN) holds stocks in all of the examples above, as well as Intel (INTC) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) .
