Top 5 Growth Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Image source: Getty Images.

Tech titans Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) and Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) are cheap on a price-to-earnings basis and they generate buckets of free cash flow (FCF). Their FCF generation combined is about as much as the GDP of Uganda’s 38 million people. Even if all they did was grow earnings and FCF in line with inflation, they would be raging buys. But, of course, investing is rarely this simple, so let’s take a look at what you need to know before deciding whether to buy these large-cap cash cows.

The value proposition

As you can see in the table below, both have attractive FCF-to-enterprise value (market cap plus net debt) multiples. In plain English, this means that Cisco Systems is currently generating more than 10% of its market cap in FCF, while Oracle clocks in around 8%.  However, as is often the case with cash cow stocks, revenue growth is low.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    It’s all retail all the time this week, with Kohl’s Corporation (NYSE: KSS), Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT), Lowe’s Companies, Inc. (NYSE: LOW), Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS), Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE: FL), and Tiffany & Co (NYSE: TIF) among the big names scheduled to report. Last week saw mixed signals from retailers, with Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) both delivering impressive results while J.C. Penney Company Inc. (NYSE: JCP) and Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) received poor reviews from the Street. TGT is arguably the biggest one to watch in the days ahead (see more detail below).

    As for individual stocks, PepsiCo (NASDAQ:PEP) popped on strong earnings and Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) fell after its investor day didn’t generate enthusiasm for its future.

    When Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) reported its most recent quarterly results after the markets closed on Thursday, the department store chain said that it had $0.95 in earnings per share (EPS) and $4.07 billion in revenue. Consensus estimates had called for $0.84 in EPS and revenue of $3.96 billion. The fiscal second-quarter of last year reportedly had EPS of $0.65 and $3.79 billion in revenue.

    Shares of department store stocks, including Macy’s (NYSE:M), Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS), and J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP), were down broadly today after Macy’s reported second-quarter earnings this morning. Oddly, Macy’s turned in a strong quarter. But the market seemed to see an opportunity to take profits in the sector as department store stocks have already run up considerably so far this year, and fears about the threat from e-commerce persist.

Top 5 Growth Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Intuitive Surgical Inc.(ISRG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By George Budwell]

    The big deal here is that investors are hoping TransEnterix can eventually transform into the next Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG), a company that has so far generated returns on capital for early shareholders in excess of 8,500%. Before doing so, however, TransEnterix has a long way to go. Intuitive’s market-leading da Vinci system, after all, remains the gold standard in robotic surgery, evidenced by the fact that the company sold a whopping 220 systems in the second quarter of this year alone.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    This morning, the U.S. Department of Labor said that weekly jobless claims came in at 207,000 for the week.

Hot Growth Stocks To Own For 2019

Oil drillers added more rigs in the U.S. this week, undaunted by pipeline bottlenecks that are hindering efforts to ship crude from the nation’s busiest field.

U.S. working oil rigs rose by one this week to 862, the highest since March 2015, according to data from Baker Hughes. The American rig fleet has expanded on an almost-uninterrupted streak since October.

Demand for the most-advanced drilling gear is on the upswing as explorers deploy so-called “super-spec” rigs to U.S. shale fields, according to Susquehanna International Group LLP.

“In fact, all agree that demand for rig additions is continuing and that growth is being constrained more by lack of super-spec capacity than by takeaway capacity,” Charles Minervino, an analyst at Susquehanna, wrote in a June 8 note to investors. “The large majority of E&Ps are going to stick with their spending programs set forth at the beginning of the year.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

For a look at what else is going on across markets, check out today’s market update if you have time.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Nordstrom outperformed the industry in the last six months driven by the smooth execution of customer strategy and disciplined inventory management. The company has an impressive surprise history with earnings beat delivered in seven of the last eight quarters and topping sales estimates in three of the trailing four quarters. Results in first-quarter fiscal 2018 gained from the shift in Nordstrom’s loyalty event to the quarter compared with the second quarter in the prior year. Management raised the low-end of its EBIT and earnings views for fiscal 2018. Also, its focus on store expansion and strengthening capabilities through further investments, particularly in digital growth, remains noteworthy. However, investments toward occupancy, technology, supply chain and marketing are weighing on its margin performance for the last few quarters. Higher expenses have been resulting in higher SG&A expense, which is hurting profitability.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Investors in Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG) know the script by now. The company forecasts solid — but not heady — procedure growth. When the end of the quarter comes, not only does it exceed expectations, but it also sells significantly more daVinci systems than it did the year before.

Best Growth Stocks To Invest In 2019

The outgoing Obama administration just offered a small carrot to millions of would-be homeowners.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Monday that the Federal Housing Administration will reduce the annual mortgage insurance premiums borrowers pay when taking out a home loan that’s insured by the government.

The FHA estimates that the reduction — of a quarter of a percentage point — will save homeowners an average of $500 this year. Homeowners taking out larger loans will see an even bigger drop in their rate.

“After four straight years of growth and with sufficient reserves on hand to meet future claims, it’s time for FHA to pass along some modest savings to working families,” said HUD Secretary Julian Castro in a press release.

The FHA backs loans to help protect lenders if a borrower defaults. Borrowers can get a loan with as little as 3.5% down, but the catch is they’re required to pay insurance premiums.

    Nordstrom, Inc. (JWN) has no intention of becoming an Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) . That is part of its strength, but it’s also refreshing to hear.

    “We’re not Amazon,” Erik Nordstrom, a co-president of the Seattle-based retailer, told TheStreet at the opening of its first stand-alone men’s store that opened on Thursday, April 12, in New York City.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    When Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) reported its most recent quarterly results after the markets closed on Thursday, the department store chain said that it had $0.95 in earnings per share (EPS) and $4.07 billion in revenue. Consensus estimates had called for $0.84 in EPS and revenue of $3.96 billion. The fiscal second-quarter of last year reportedly had EPS of $0.65 and $3.79 billion in revenue.

    Crude oil prices continue to remain in focus after Brent crude hit $80.00 per barrel. The benchmark crude touched $80.00, as markets are concerned about the impact renewed Iranian sanctions will have on global supply. French oil giant Total announced Wednesday that it was abandoning a gas project in Iran after failing to obtain a waiver from the Trump administration to do business in Iran. The sanctions are expected to decline global output at a time that OPEC is already working diligently to push oil prices higher by containing excessive global production.

    Hudson’s Bay’s European operations and its off-price division are probably responsible for the majority of the company’s recent losses. Still, sales have been plummeting at Lord & Taylor in recent years, as the tired chain has lost market share to other retail formats, as well as stronger department stores like Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) and even Macy’s (NYSE:M). Lord & Taylor is almost certainly contributing to its parent company’s ongoing losses.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell, Chris Neiger, and Sean Williams]

    There are thousands of stocks investors can buy, so deciding which make the most sense to own in long-term portfolios, such as retirement accounts, can be tough. Economies can rise and fall, and competitors can disrupt business models, but our three Motley Fool contributors think Illumina (NASDAQ:ILMN), Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG), and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) have what it takes to reward investors over the long haul. Read on to see what separates these stocks from the countless others that you could stash away for 20 years or more.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    If you buy stocks that have great business models and you have a long-term perspective, there’s no reason to bail out even if a recession is right around the corner. As an example, let’s consider Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG), a stock that I own. The company has a razor-and-blades type of business model with its robotic surgical systems and instruments and accessories for those systems.

  • [By Chris Hill]

    But there was more upbeat news elsewhere, with No. 3 airline United Continental (NYSE:UAL) beating on earnings and freight rail titan CSX (NASDAQ:CSX) delivering record first-quarter numbers. Also on the rapid growth train: Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG), whose da Vinci systems are selling at an impressive rate. And speaking of sales of tech products, the guys close out the episode by explaining why it’s a win-win that Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) are joining forces to sell smart TVs.

Hot Growth Stocks To Watch Right Now

Over the past month and a half, I have personally been working to reduce some of my fairly sizeable cash balance. One of the key cogs has been TJX Companies (NYSE:TJX). As I’ve noted before, TJX has an enviable track record of capital allocation as well as a semi-Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) resistant business model. Although Q1 was slightly disappointing, I think the company can trade to $87, and it looks attractive at current levels.

From Q1’17 results, I have a few key takeaways. First, comps are nothing to worry about. Secondly, labor costs are under control. Lastly, the company is in a great inventory position, which I believe provides a little comp upside in the backhalf of the year, as TJX will be able to opportunistically.

Weak comp after a Q1’17 blockbuster quarter is nothing to worry about

The most underrated part of evaluating comp store growth is looking at a quarter more holistically. In Q1’18, TJX reported a “disappointing” comp of 1%; however, that comes on the back of a Q1’17 where the company posted a 7% increase in same-store sales. Over a 2-year period, this 4% stacked-comp would be considered blockbuster performance at several retailers, but I believe investors got lost in headline results.

Top 5 Growth Stocks To Watch For 2019

A digital revolution is reshaping India’s $34 billion gold market, with smartphones, e-wallets and flexible investment schemes drawing new buyers into a business dominated by traditional, face-to-face transactions.

Digital payment systems have ballooned in popularity in India since the government scrapped large-value bank notes in 2016.

Among these offerings are applications that enable smartphone users to buy, sell or store gold – even in small amounts – kept in secured vaults operated by MMTC-PAMP India Pvt Ltd, a joint venture between MMTC Ltd, the largest national trading firm, and Swiss gold refiner PAMP.

Although online gold purchases have been growing globally for years, they are a relatively recent phenomenon in India, where jewellery and bars of the precious metal tend to be kept in hand and given as gifts.

“In India, the action is really starting now. The digitisation of the economy will certainly lead to digitisation of gold,” said Somasundaram PR cq, managing director of World Gold Council’s (WGC) India operations. “It is poised for significant growth, possibly in the next 12-24 months.”

Top 5 Growth Stocks To Watch For 2019: Intuitive Surgical Inc.(ISRG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG) reported fourth-quarter earnings and it delivered a small miss on profits. Wall Street, no shock, dinged its stock price accordingly.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In the healthcare world, one of those has to be the impressive quarterly report from Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG). The company increased its revenue by 25%, and accelerated its sales of the da Vinci robotic surgical systems that made it famous. But it’s not just the expensive hardware that is allowing it to prosper — it’s that every machine needs a steady supply of the disposable instruments and accessories used during its procedures. The Fools consider the recent numbers, the outlook, and the investment thesis for Intuitive Surgical stock. But in the, say, anti-healthcare space, cigarette slinger Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM) took a big hit as demand slackened in major foreign markets. Sales of its e-cig devices are also not growing the way management had hoped.

Below we discuss some key takeaways from Wal-Mart&a;rsquo;s earnings&a;nbsp;as well as its Q2 outlook using our &l;a href=&q;http://dashboards.trefis.com/no-login-required/ACkEY2nE?fromforbesandarticle=key-takeaways-from-wal-marts-q1-results&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;&l;strong&g;interactive platform&l;/strong&g;&l;/a&g;.

On a reported basis, the company&a;rsquo;s revenue increased 4% year over year (y-o-y) to $123 billion, driven by growth in the domestic market due to its marketplace offerings. Wal-Mart also posted diluted earnings per share of $0.72, down 28% y-o-y, largely due to the company&a;rsquo;s e-commerce investments putting pressure on its bottom line. This pressure was in large part due to accounting standards which required the company to report an unrealized loss related to a decline in JD.com&a;rsquo;s stock during the quarter, as Wal-Mart holds a significant position in the Chinese e-commerce giant. However, on an adjusted basis, Wal-Mart&a;rsquo;s earnings per share grew 14% y-o-y to $1.14.

    Wall Street was in a great mood on Thursday, as favorable news on multiple fronts sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average to its first record close in eight months. Major benchmarks were generally up 1% after market participants responded to strong economic data on jobless claims, and rising optimism about the potential for a peaceful solution to the tariff-laden trade environment helped many Dow components disproportionately. However, some companies still had to deal with individual challenges that kept them from joining the rally. Stitch Fix (NASDAQ:SFIX), Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), and Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Spotify (NYSE:SPOT) has seen its average revenue per user (ARPU) decline considerably over the last couple of years. ARPU declined 12% year over year in the second quarter to 4.89 euros. The main culprit has been the simplification of its family plan to a flat fee per household, the growth of its student plan, and the introduction of bundled streaming services such as Hulu.

But CFO Barry McCarthy said he doesn’t want to increase pricing despite pressure from record labels to do so. At an investors conference last month, McCarthy said it’s better to show total revenue growth, and there are a lot more effective ways to do that than by increasing the price subscribers pay each month. He points to the success of Netflix, where McCarthy was CFO from 2004 to 2010, which managed to grow rapidly without increasing prices for a very long time.

To that end, investors should expect Spotify to invest in growing revenue in other ways than increasing price. Here’s how that could impact the company.

And with just a few smart plays in today’s classic stock picker’s market… you can pull in triple-digit gains with just a small investment. Read those picks right here.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    This morning, the U.S. Department of Labor said that weekly jobless claims came in at 207,000 for the week. That figure is below the 220,000 jobless claims expected by economists and brings U.S. unemployment claims to a 48.5-year low. It’s a big day of earnings reports, as dozens of blue chip companies will report results from the June-ending quarter. The biggest name today will be Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), which reports earnings after the bell. Wall Street expects that the technology giant will report earnings of $1.07 per share. Analysts project quarterly revenue of $29.17 billion.

    International Business Machines (NYSE: IBM) stock added 2.5% in pre-market hours after Big Blue topped Wall Street earnings and revenue expectations. The tech giant continues to post positive results as it accelerates its turnaround efforts. IBM reported earnings per share of $3.08, a figure that beat estimates by $0.04 per share. It also reported quarterly revenue of $20.0 billion, a figure that surpassed estimates of $19.85 billion. Shares of Alcoa Corp. (NYSE: AA) fell 2% this morning. The aluminum manufacturer slashed its 2018 outlook due to falling prices and the recent round of metals tariffs introduced by the Trump administration. But there could be more pain in sight. Today, the U.S. Justice Department will hold a hearing that aims to determine whether vehicle and light truck imports present a national security threat to the United States. The hearing is due to President Trump’s pledge to hit European auto man

    Stock No. 3: Let’s go back to the well. So, April last year what was the “I?” Quick quiz at home? That’s right. It was Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG). I own the company, and in front of my gathered fellow Heels last week, I put Intuitive Surgical on this list, as well, so I present it for you again today. It reminds us to continue to add to our winners. It was a winner a year ago. It had a three for one stock split, something that I don’t personally care about. I don’t think we should spend a lot of time talking about stock splits. I realize some people think they’re exciting or are confused by them.

Top 10 Growth Stocks To Invest In 2019

What happened

Shares of Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) gained 10.3% in May, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. The semiconductor veteran didn’t have a whole lot of news to share last month, but the stock was able to ride a wave of positive market trends on the heels of a solid earnings report near the end of April.

Image source: Texas Instruments.

So what

As a reminder, Texas Instruments smashed Wall Street’s first-quarter estimates across the board with 11% year-over-year sales growth and 39% higher earnings. The company shrugged off fears that it might suffer from weak sales of Apple iPhones, and the Texans found other ways to deliver rock-solid results. Above all, the company is focusing on industrial and automotive computing opportunities while waiting for the 5G wireless market to take off.

In May, a trade-war spat with China caused mobile communications giant ZTE to essentially go out of business. Many American chipmakers jumped on the news, as ZTE’s exit arguably underscored their value to the modern smartphone and telecom equipment markets. Texas Instruments joined that surge with a 7% share price gain in the space of five days.

    Retail earnings take center stage the remainder of the week, but aside from that it’s a little hard right now to determine what sort of catalyst is out there that could give the market back some of the “giddy-up” it had last week.

Thursday looks like a big day, with Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) and J C Penney Company Inc. (NYSE: JCP) scheduled to report before the open and Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) after the close.
