Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019

Many people don’t realize it, but when you get that final paycheck, it is one of the most important financial events of your life.  The idea of no longer working for money and having access to a paycheck can do weird things to some people.  In many cases, it can turn them into a penny pinching, wheeling-dealing, cheapskate who will go out of their way to save a buck or get a better deal.

On the surface, it’s admirable and illustrates good financial responsibility.  But deep down it can actually be a bigger problem for their social life, family, and friends, not to mention physical health.

The harsh reality is, going to extremes to save money can take over and dominate a person’s life. It can leave those around them frustrated, burdened, and likely to avoid both personal and social interactions that involve money. In other words, it can push people away.

Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019: Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.(CHKP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.’s (NASDAQ: CHKP) short interest decreased to 10.10 million shares from the previous 11.16 million. Shares were trading at $115.74, in a 52-week range of $93.76 to $119.20.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    First Mercantile Trust Co. lifted its holdings in Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:CHKP) by 53.1% in the fourth quarter, according to the company in its most recent filing with the SEC. The fund owned 2,084 shares of the technology company’s stock after acquiring an additional 723 shares during the quarter. First Mercantile Trust Co.’s holdings in Check Point Software Technologies were worth $214,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Those numbers look dismal compared to the company’s cybersecurity peers. For example, Symantec’s bigger industry peer Check Point Software (NASDAQ:CHKP) is expected to post 2% sales growth and 5% earnings growth, yet its stock trades at just 17 times this year’s earnings.

  • [By Chris Neiger]

    Shares of IT security company Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) jumped by 15.3% in July, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after the company received a buy rating from a BTIG analyst and as the company reported solid earnings in its second quarter that surpassed some of management’s own expectations.

Best Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery – we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations – and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

There are a number of great companies in the market today. By using the ModernGraham Valuation Model, I’ve screened the 650 companies reviewed by ModernGraham to select five large-cap undervalued companies for value investors.

Each company has been determined to be suitable for either the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor according to the ModernGraham approach. Defensive Investors are defined as investors who are not able or willing to do substantial research into individual investments, and therefore need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk.

Tesoro Corporation (NYSE:TSO)

Tesoro Corporation is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the low current ratio, insufficient earnings stability over the last ten years, and the poor dividend history. The Enterprising Investor is only concerned with the level of debt relative to the net current assets. As a result, all Enterprising Investors following the ModernGraham approach should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.

Best Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

(Editor’s note: There is much greater liquidity on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under ticker Z01).

The Elevator Pitch

Zooplus (OTC:ZOPLY) (OTC:ZLPSF) is the leading online retailer of pet food and supplies in Europe. Generally, in a commoditized market such as selling pet food, the lowest cost provider with the best customer service has the “right to win”. We believe that Zooplus will be this winner, given its structural cost advantage versus its competitors (which we explore below). Additionally, customer satisfaction is extremely high, and we can clearly see customers’ appreciation for the company’s value proposition, as evidenced by the 94% sales retention rate. These unbeatable low prices and high customer satisfaction have led to a 31% annualized sales growth rate since 2010, while still possessing a long runway for continued expansion.

We believe the market is underestimating the long-term earnings power of the firm and consequently significantly undervaluing the company. For instance, the stock is currently trading at 0.9x 2016 sales while comparable acquisitions have taken place at 2-6x multiples. Additionally, we believe at maturity, the business will have normalized operating margins of 8-10%, implying a valuation of ~10x normalized EBIT.

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

    Kroger Co (NYSE: KR) may be best positioned to counter Amazon’s threat given its own data analytics capabilities. SYSCO Corporation (NYSE: SYY) and US Foods Holding Corp (NYSE: USFD) are likely safe as Amazon won’t move into the foodservice distribution space which is very different from serving individual customers.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market.
