Top 10 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

What happened

Shares of Turtle Beach (NASDAQ:HEAR) gained 33.8% in July, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. The maker of gaming headsets and other digital audio solutions is, in fact, the best-performing tech stock on the market in 2018 with a 1,615% return so far. And it’s all thanks to the rise of so-called “battle royale” video games, where a good headset is an important part of the gaming experience.

So what

To be clear, Turtle Beach didn’t have much news to share in July. The company did release new lines of gaming-console headsets, and key title Fortnite Battle Royale published a new “season” to keep gamers interested. But neither of these events made much of a difference to Turtle Beach’s stock chart. Takeover chatter that painted Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) as a potential suitor triggered a quick 4% rise near the end of the month, but even that spike was largely lost in the general uptrend.

Instead, the stock simply continued to rise on the considerable market momentum built up over the last few months.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019: CenturyLink, Inc.(CTL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE: CTL) is a telecom stock that pays its investors more than just a high dividend yield to own the stock. It’s a crazy-high yield of over 14%. Telecom stocks that pay such yields are often shunned by analysts because the earnings and cash flows are hard to model, and it’s increasingly harder to know where the future earnings will come from to continually support those dividends.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE: CTL) was last seen down 11.3% at $13.05 after cutting its dividend with earnings. JPMorgan downgraded the stock to Neutral from Overweight and the target price was slashed to $14 from $27.

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Two of the biggest names in the industry are CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE:CTL) and AT&T (NYSE:T), which are both profitable but heading in different directions strategically. Here’s why I think one is a much better buy than the other.

Best Stocks To Invest In Right Now

For the second time in less than a year, Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) has given the green light to a new natural gas pipeline project, this time making a final investment decision on the Permian Highway Pipeline. In doing so, the company is adding a bit more clarity to its growth prospects, which dimmed earlier this year after it sold the Trans Mountain Pipeline and its controversial expansion project to the Government of Canada. While the company hasn’t yet replaced what it lost by jettisoning that project, it’s working fast to lessen the blow.

Details on the latest project

Kinder Morgan initially unveiled the Permian Highway Pipeline project in late June, announcing that it signed a letter of intent with private equity-backed EagleClaw Midstream and Apache (NYSE:APA) to develop another new gas pipeline out of the Permian Basin. That project got a big boost of confidence last month when ExxonMobil’s XTO Energy subsidiary signed on to be an anchor shipper. The partners would go on to secure additional shippers for nearly all the pipeline’s remaining capacity, which allowed them to officially sanction the project this week.

Hot High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019: Stryker Corporation(SYK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Finally, shares of Boston Scientific sank 6%. The medical device maker had jumped earlier in the week on reports that it might receive a takeover bid from industry peer Stryker (NYSE:SYK). Yet today, Stryker denied that it had been in acquisition talks with Boston Scientific, throwing cold water on the idea. With the downward push, Boston Scientific is now back to where the stock started the week before the reports surfaced in the first place. Boston Scientific will now apparently have to make the most of its own opportunities in the medical device space — at least unless another potential buyer comes around.
