Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own 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.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

My Top Pick for speculators for the coming year is a biotech company, explains leading growth and income stock specialist Crista Huff, editor of Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.

Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) is prominent for its world-leading treatments for cystic fibrosis. Vertex is expected to outperform its peers in earnings growth through 2020.

Vertex is expected to report earnings per share of $2.27 in 2017 (December year-end), reflecting 195% earnings growth. This aggressive growth stock has a 2017 price/earnings ratio of 34.

As you know, pharmaceutical stocks got left behind in investors’ post-election race to own financial and basic industry stocks.

But the benefit of sector rotations is that we get to buy shares of healthy, growing companies while their prices are low.

In December, the company announced that it had come to a pricing and reimbursement agreement with Germany on Orkambi, a Vertex treatment for cystic fibrosis. This is bullish news.

    Investing in biotech stocks can be risky because clinical trial failures can lead to eye-popping drops in share prices. Nevertheless, the potential to benefit from revolutionary new medicines can make owning biotech stocks in a diversified portfolio smart. If you’re hunting for new biotech stocks to buy, these three Motley Fool investors think you should consider Ligand Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:LGND), Viking Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VKTX), and Amarin Corporation (NASDAQ:AMRN). Each of these companies has catalysts that could make now a good time to pick up shares.

    The stock market came into the new week on a negative note, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average seeing the biggest declines among the major benchmarks. Renewed trade fears and political concerns out of Washington seemed to worry investors, and some trepidation about the speed with which interest rates have risen in recent days also weighed on some portions of the market. Yet some individual companies had good news that sent their shares higher despite the downbeat mood generally. Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Emerging markets dominated investment in clean energy in the first quarter of 2018, with more than 40% of funding going to projects in China, while there were notable developments in Mexico, Morocco, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Total investment for the first three months of the year was $61.1 billion, 10% lower than the same period in 2017, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). Using slightly different criteria, Clean Energy Pipeline said that the figure was $62.1 billion.

One reason for the fall in investment was a 19% drop in solar funding, partly as a result of a 7% fall in the price of photovoltaic equipment over the past year, and partly because of weaker activity in some markets.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: Cameco Corporation(CCJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Shares of Cameco Corp. (NYSE:CCJ) are down nearly 80% from highs they reached in the mid-2000s. Falling uranium prices have been the primary reason for the decline, since this giant Canadian uranium miner is strictly focused on the nuclear fuel. At this point, there doesn’t appear to be a dramatic and imminent upturn in the uranium market’s future. However, it looks like Cameco is taking all of the right steps to get its mojo back when prices do start to turn higher. Here’s what you need to know before you buy Cameco stock.

  • [By Peter Graham]

    This morning before the market opened, uranium producer Cameco Corporation (NYSE: CCJ) reported Q1 2018 results which should be looked over by investors in other potentialuranium players like small cap Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX-V: AAZ; OTCMKTS: AZURF) as CCJwould be one of the worlds largest uranium producers, a significant supplier of conversion services and one of two Candufuel manufacturers in Canada. Cameco Corporation alsosays itscompetitive position is based oncontrolling ownership of the worlds largest high-grade reserves and low-cost operations.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Cameco Corporation (NYSE:CCJ), the largest publicly traded uranium miner, has been struggling along with the moribund price of the nuclear fuel it mines. The stock is down over 70% since commodity markets started to tumble in 2011. The early 2016 commodity upturn, meanwhile, has seemingly left uranium behind. Investors have ample reason to worry, but for more intrepid stock buyers, Cameco’s low stock price could be a long-term opportunity.

  • [By Neha Chamaria]

    Gitzel’s quote above from Cameco’s (NYSE:CCJ) recent quarterly earnings release pretty much sums up what’s happening at the uranium mining giant.

    As a nuclear fuel pure-play, Cameco was among the worst-hit companies when the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan brought the construction of nuclear reactors worldwide to a grinding halt. Japan shuttered all of its more than 50 reactors, nations across the globe mothballed projects, demand and prices of uranium slumped, and the uranium industry is still trying to find its feet.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil.
