Top Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

What happened

Shares of Internet of Things hardware specialist Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) traded higher on Friday, reaching a gain of 11.3% at 3:45 p.m. EST. The company didn’t have any news to report today, but investors appear to have decided that Thursday’s drastic price drop was too sharp after all.

So what

Sierra’s fourth-quarter report showed slowing top-line growth and lower earnings, inspiring a slew of immediate analyst downgrades and target price cuts. By the end of Thursday, the stock had taken a 27% haircut.

Again, the company didn’t have anything new to add to the discussion on Friday. It simply started drifting higher in the early morning, and the gains kept coming all day long. As we head into the weekend, Sierra Wireless has erased about half of Thursday’s huge price drop.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Stars Group Inc.’s $4.7-billion purchase of Sky Betting & Gaming turns the online poker giant into a major sports-betting player that could use its strong foothold in Europe to cross the Atlantic if the U.S. market fully opens.

The Toronto-based operator of PokerStars, which announced the cash-and-stock deal with CVC Capital Partners and Sky Plc on Saturday, is set to win a significant foothold in the U.K. — the largest regulated gaming market. Sky Betting & Gaming, or SBG, is growing rapidly in online casino games and sports at home and recently expanded to Italy and Germany.

If an upcoming Supreme Court decision in the U.S. allows sports betting in more states, it would be the “icing on the cake” for the combined companies, according to Simon Holliday, founder of the research firm H2 Gambling Capital.

“The US sportsbetting Supreme Court case is obviously a big part of the potential upside, with Star’s old database, SBG’s strengths and their track record solely in the U.K.,” Holliday wrote in an email. “Even without the U.S., SBG is just starting to launch in other regulated markets.”

    As an investor, it’s always hard when a company you love doesn’t see things go its way. I ate at Tex-Mex chain Chuy’s Holdings (NASDAQ:CHUY) original Austin locations hundreds of times during my time in Texas’ capital city, and eating at not one but two of its Houston-area restaurants on a recent trip to my hometown was a highlight of my time there. Yet despite my own contributions toward boosting Chuy’s sales performance, the company’s broader fortunes have remained mixed, and a brutally competitive restaurant industry has made it hard for Chuy’s to keep itself moving forward despite its ambitious expansion efforts.

Best Value Stocks For 2019

We’re often told of the importance of investing in stocks, especially when it comes to long-term savings goals, like retirement. But new data suggests that there may be another way to generate comparable returns over a lengthy period of time: becoming a landlord.

Researchers from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management and Structured Portfolio Management in Stamford, Connecticut recently found that single-family homes in large U.S. cities generated average annual returns of roughly 9% between 1986 and 2014. In the study, about half of those returns stemmed from rental income, and the other half from increases in property value.

Image source: Getty Images.

Why is that significant? Because the stock market has historically delivered returns in the 9% ballpark as well. This data therefore suggests that you can make about as much money being a landlord as you can managing a stock portfolio over time. It also indicates that owning a rental property can be far more lucrative than conservative investments such as bonds. The question therefore becomes: Should you divert some of your investment dollars away from the stock market and buy property instead?

    After 111 years as a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) has been replaced on the index by Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (NYSE: WBA). According to David Blitzer, managing director and chair of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, the change is part of an effort to increase value and prominence of consumer goods, finance, healthcare, and technology firms on the U.S. economy. GE is the last original member to be removed from the index. Shares of Boeing Co. (NYSE BA), DowDuPont Inc. (NYSE: DOW), and Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) are getting pounded on concerns that a full-blown trade war may accelerate and hurt major exporters to China. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump announced he may seek tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese goods. Trump has asked U.S. trade representatives to identify potential products on which the United States could implement a 10% tariff. Recent trade volatility has erased all gains in the Dow Jones in 2018. Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) has raised its bid for Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (NYSE: FOXA) assets to $71.3 billion in cash and stock. The new offer tops the $35 all-cash offer proposed last week by cable and telecom giant Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA).

Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL) stock was off 3.7% despite news that the cloud computing giant topped Wall Street earnings expectations yesterday. The firm reported adjusted EPS of $0.99 on top of $11.25 billion in revenue. Those numbers beat average expectations of $0.94 on $11.18 billion. The stock slumped after

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.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now

Just days before reporting earnings, Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM) was hitting new all-time highs. But since hitting those highs, YUM stock has been in retreat. That’s despite rebounding from its post-earnings slump.

After the company beat on earnings per share and revenue expectations — and rather handedly at that — it’s got many investors wondering if this is an overreaction to Yum earnings.

Does it make Yum stock a buy?

A Look at YUM Earnings

Adjusted for a one-time item, earnings came in at 90 cents per share. That was vastly ahead of the 68 cents per share in earnings that analysts were looking for. On the revenue front, its $1.37 billion in sales beat expectations as well.

The company operates a trio of global restaurant chains, that being KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. That’s with the exception of China, which operates under Yum China Holdings Inc (NYSE:YUMC).

While the headline numbers looked good, same-store sales (SSS) were a disappointment, increasing just 1% globally. That’s below analysts’ estimates looking for 2% growth. Operating margins at KFC grew 5.3% to 33.6%, but both Taco Bell and Pizza saw declines.
