Top Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

There’s no way around it: the S&P 500 now has a P/E ratio of more than 26 going into the first earnings season of 2017, and even the “safest” bets are starting to look scary.

Unless we see massive profit growth all around, there’s a real risk this bull market is going to stutter—or worse.

So where do you go for value? It’s getting harder than ever, but there is one corner of the market that got way ahead of the S&P 500 and has since taken a step back. I’m talking about real estate investment trusts (REITs).

And now, there are three REITs that combined provide over 9% in income with over 200% average dividend coverage. That means they could double their payouts and still generate enough cash to cover them.

Plus, these stocks are out of favor, making them relatively cheap compared to their peers and the overheated broader market.

On the bottom line, that translated to adjusted earnings of $8.7 million, or $0.37 per share, up from $0.01 per share in the same year-ago period.

    The stock market rebounded sharply on Wednesday, and major benchmarks recovered most of the ground they lost on Tuesday, posting gains of around 1%. Concerns about financial difficulties in the Italian economy seemed to ebb in investors’ minds, as those looking more closely at the problem came to the conclusion that U.S. exposure to any troubles the European Union might face as a result of pressure on its common currency wouldn’t be as large as initially feared. In addition, some good news from several parts of the market improved overall sentiment. Movado Group (NYSE:MOV), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU), and Exact Sciences (NASDAQ:EXAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Though concerns have been raised that the analog and MCU markets are at risk of seeing an inventory correction (they haven’t had a major one in a while), given signs of excessive ordering and stretched lead times, TI and STMicro’s numbers suggest conditions remain good for now.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Intuit Inc.(INTU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Morgan Stanley reported on Wednesday that it has downgraded financial management solution provider Intuit Inc. (INTU).

    The firm has cut its rating on INTU to “Underweight,” and has given the company a $62 price target. This price target suggests a 6% decline from the stock’s current price of $66.30. This downgrade reflects the company’s slowing growth of its tax business.

    Intuit shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Wednesday. The stock is up 11% YTD.

    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

What the Future of Social Security Looks Like: Bill Reichenstein

Financial advisors may want to keep a close watch on how the next Congress and president deal with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. According to a new survey from Nationwide Retirement Institute of adults 50 and older, Social Security and Medicare top the list of sources they expect to use  to pay for health care in retirement. More than 60% of respondents expect to tap both sources to pay for health care, well above the 47% who expect to use savings.

“Older Americans are increasingly reliant on these programs to pay for their health care,” says John Carter, president and COO of Nationwide’s retirement plans business.

As a candidate, Donald Trump barely mentioned America’s retirement crisis. As president, he will have enormous power over the issue.

James and Carrie Finan have been house-hunting in the Seattle area for four months in a seemingly futile race against time: Theyre living in a room in James mothers house and their first child is due in September.

Theyve seen about 40 starterhouses that match their criteria$350,000 or less, three bedrooms, about 1,200 square feet — and made four offers ranging from $32,000 to $82,000 above asking price. Theyve lost out each time.

Every time we hear were not getting it, my heart kind of sinks, James, 29, says. Its been insane.

A big reason the Finans are struggling is the regulatory morass faced by builders like Mike Walsh. On a parcel in Sammamish, Wash., a Seattle suburb, he wouldlike to build 36 relatively affordable houses. But since zoning changes in recent years permit just 25, hell have to sell each at $1.2 million to make the project profitable.

It’s not a fair comparison, of course, because our closed positions all have different time frames, but it does stress the strong promise of game-changing stocks.

best stock buys: Paragon Offshore plc (PGNPQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Paragon Offshore’s (OTCPK:PGNPQ) former management’s audacious efforts to omit parts of the senior secured lenders by deeming them unimpaired and instead pay out the majority of the company’s cash to junior unsecured bondholders by presenting a set of entirely unrealistic business forecasts to the court. Fortunately, in case of Paragon Offshore, the bankruptcy judge recognized the framing and accordingly denied confirmation of the company’s plan of reorganization, effectively sending Paragon Offshore back to the drawing board. Consequently, management was ousted after the failure. I have covered the Paragon Offshore saga in a series of articles over the past few quarters, so interested investors might want to take a look at this highly fascinating and still evolving case study.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    With even brand new rigs struggling to find work, the jig was soon up for owners of old equipment, like Paragon Offshore (OTCPK:PGNPQ), which is currently undergoing its second debt restructuring in less than three years of independent existence. Likewise, drillers with a fondness for aggressive use of debt were soon in trouble, most notably, former high-flier Seadrill (SDRL) and its little brother North Atlantic Drilling (NADL), which will no doubt file for restructuring within months. As a consequence of the crisis, the OSD industry now has a number of participants without a large debt burden, either new entrants like Borr Drilling, or established competitors that have had debt reduced in a restructuring, such as Ocean Rig (ORIG), to be followed within this year by others, almost certainly including each of SDRL, NADL, and Pacific Drilling (PACD).
