Hot High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) is in a spot of bother as weak demand for its mobile chips led to a slight decline in its revenue during the fiscal third quarter. But that didn’t keep it from raising its dividend. Skyworks management decided to boost the quarterly dividend by 19% to $0.38 per share. This is surprising, as the company’s outlook doesn’t inspire much confidence.

Skyworks expects its fourth-quarter revenue to rise just 1.6% annually at the midpoint of its guidance range, while adjusted earnings per share are expected to rise just 5%. This is in stark contrast to the same period last year, when the company’s revenue increased 18% and adjusted earnings shot up 22%.

It looks like Skyworks is trying to prop up investor confidence by increasing its dividend and deflecting attention from the challenges that it faces in the mobile business, which supplies 70% of its total revenue. But is this the right way to go at a time when the company’s primary business is struggling?

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

Dr. Kent Moors

A few years ago, in one of my books (“The Vega Factor”), I coined a phrase to explain the new way in which oil pricing was unfolding, along with the uncertainty resulting from it.

Then, the market was facing rising crude topping $100 a barrel.

Now, the situation finds oil rising into the mid-$60s after a bout of abnormally low prices.

The phenomenon described, however, applies to oil moving in either direction.

I called it “Oil Vega.”

Simply put, it refers to the increasing inability to determine the true value of crude oil based on its market price.

Now, there is a reason why I’m revisiting this phrase now.

You see, I am close to putting the finishing touch on a new investment tool that identifies stocks based on this phenomenon.

And today, I want to give you a sneak peek at one of its main components…

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

Over the course of the last few trading days, we have seen the return of volatility and some serious carnage in the markets. To kick off this week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1,175 points, the largest single-day point loss in the history of the index. Monday and Thursday were easily two of the worst trading days that anyone has seen in a long time, but on the other hand Tuesday and Friday were incredibly positive days.

Friday saw markets open on a positive note but slip into the red around lunch time, only to quickly comeback even stronger to close out the day. However, whats to say this wont happen again with investors getting the short end of the stick?

Some investors with longer views beyond a few days will likely invest in defensive companies those they believe will keep operating well if the market continues to fall and rates continue to rise. Many such public companies also have a long history of paying dividends. Warren Buffetts advice to investors has famously been, Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Last night, President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. This was the first meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. Following the agreement, analysts noted that the document signed by both parties included no concrete details for achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. Trump responded to criticism by saying he is fully confident that the Korean dictatorship will follow through. A U.S. district court will rule on whether to approve an $85 billion merger between AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX). The decision comes after about six weeks of debate in a courtroom. The ruling will likely have a significant impact on the proposed bid by The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) for media giant Twenty-First Century Fox Inc.(NYSE: FOXA). The Fed Open Market Committee kicks off its June meeting today. The U.S. central bank is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in 2018.

Markets will be looking for clues during Powell’s conference to determine how many additional times the Fed plans to raise interest rates during the final six months of the year.

Long one of the lowest rated of all U.S. industries, the country’s airlines have made something of a comeback over the past four years. In 2013 airlines scored just ahead of internet services providers (ISPs) and cable TV providers at the bottom of the rankings maintained by the American Customer Satisfaction Index. Airlines’ scores improved by 4.3% in 2016 and now rank ahead of five services, including ISPs and cable guys (still at the bottom), municipal utilities, fixed-line phone services and wireless phone service.

The average cost of a round-trip flight last year was $370. And while cost is a significant factor in which airline a consumer selects, other factors delays, canceled flights, comfort are also important to consumers.

The best airline, overall, was Alaska Air Group Inc. (NYSE: ALK). Other category winners were Spirit Airlines Co. (NASDAQ: SAVE), which was ranked cheapest; Alaska rated most reliable; JetBlue Airways Inc. (NASDAQ: JBLU) was most comfortable; best for pets was Alaska; and the airline receiving the fewest complaints was Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV).

ICICI Direct’s research report on Oberoi Realty

Oberoi Realty’s Q4FY18 sales performance was below our estimate mainly due to subdued sales in Worli project. On the financials front, the results were above our estimates on the topline, bottomline front Oberoi Realty’s (ORL) Q4FY18 sales volumes fell 13.6% sequentially to 1.31 lakh sq ft with sales value of Rs 263.3 crore. Sales volume was below our estimates of 1.66 lakh sq ft due to lower-than-expected sales of 9562 sq ft in Worli project (our expectation: 50000 sq ft) Revenues grew robustly by 19.1% YoY to Rs 345.0 crore and were slightly above our estimate of Rs 338.3 crore EBITDA margins expanded 80 bps YoY to 53.1% mainly on account of a change in the project mix. It was below our expectation of 54.3% PAT grew 40.4% YoY to Rs 142.9 crore (our estimate: Rs 114.4 crore) primarily due to topline growth and EBITDA margin expansion The board recommended a dividend of Rs 2.

Outlook

We like the company given the quality of land bank, its healthy balance sheet and management bandwidth to execute large projects. However, the sales momentum for ORL has been sluggish. Also, the stock has run up ~41% in the last one year. Hence, we await a better entry point. Consequently, we continue to maintain our HOLD recommendation on the stock with a revised target price of Rs 550.

Hot Value Stocks To Buy Right Now: Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc.(DNKN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    The market is treating Chipotle as if it is an Amazon, Tesla, Apple or Google, when in fact all they do is make burritos. With the money it would cost you to buy Chipotle today @ $14 billion dollars you could buy Wendy’s (WEN), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Papa John’s International (PZZA), and Dunkin’ Brands (DNKN). Chipotle would need to generate at least $24 in earnings per share in order to justify the current market cap — they are not even expected to generate half of that next year. Chipotle is expected to report Q1 on April 25 and the market, in my opinion, has already more than priced in good news.

    While McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) and Dunkin’ Brands’ (NASDAQ: DNKN) Dunkin’ Donuts both now sell premium espresso-based beverages along with other fancy coffee drinks, people don’t view those brands the way they see Starbucks. The Seattle-based coffee chain exists in its own world, where it can sell out of $10 cups of whisky-barrel-aged coffee while it opens more than a thousand Reserve stores selling pricier drinks than its normal, already expensive beverage lineup.
