Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

In today’s market, Square Inc (NYSE:SQ) is an anomaly: a technology firm that’s performing very well. On a year-to-date basis, Square stock is up nearly 42%, a resounding triumph amid a sea of disappointment. In contrast, competitors in the payment apps industry, such as Paypal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:PYPL) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), are decidedly muted.

Naturally, investors wonder if such momentum can last. I’m cautiously optimistic that it will. Unlike Apple, which has multiple and disparate businesses, SQ stock is a substantially more focused investment. And while PayPal is the dominant player in the online payment app arena, Square has the edge in providing a comprehensive solution for small businesses.

Of course, I don’t want to discount the pain in the broader markets, which has negatively impacted Square stock. For instance, the entire tech sector softened from mid-March due to several pessimistic catalysts, most notably the Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Uber driverless technology controversies. In Square’s case, shares are down nearly 15% since the March 20 close.

Mark Carney may be wondering at times if less is more when he speaks to financial markets.

After a bruising month that’s seen his own signals on interest rates questioned and one of his deputies forced to apologize for calling the economy menopausal, communication is once again a hot topic for the Bank of England governor.

Carney, who arrived at the BOE in 2013 with forward guidance as his signature policy, will come under more scrutiny this week when he faces a grilling from U.K. lawmakers. He’ll also give speeches in London and Stockholm.

“Some people would say the safest thing for the Bank of England to do right now is to go back to being mystical,” said Clea Bourne, a senior lecturer and financial communications specialist at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Communication dominated Carney’s press conference following the BOE’s May 10 policy announcement, and will doubtless figure in Tuesday’s session in Parliament. Carney and his colleagues will be questioned on the decision, which saw officials hold off on a rate hike that had been seen as a certainty just weeks earlier. Brexit and its impact on the economy will also probably feature at the hearing.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Dave & Buster's Entertainment, Inc.(PLAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matt Hogan]

    Casual-dining chains have not been winners during this economic expansion. Millenials, with their need for more social media-worthy experiences, have been blamed for the decline in conjunction with Baby Boomers moving onto fixed incomes as they retire.

    Dave & Buster's Entertainment Inc (NASDAQ: PLAY) provides an eat, drink, play, and watch experience for consumers. This hybrid entertainment/dining experience has fared well since going public in 2012, attracting higher-income adults in the 21-39 age range.
    Poor same-store sales last quarter knocked the premium off the stock price, but top and bottom-line growth were still strong. Margins and efficiency ratios top its competitors, and Wall Street and quant valuation models agree that there is a strong upside for this diamond in the casual-dining rough.

    You'll Probably Want to Sit Down for This

    Casual dining, the traditional sit-down, full-service restaurant experience is getting hit by demographics. Millennials want hip, social-media worthy experiences and retiring Baby Boomers are thrifty on their fixed incomes. Headlines such as "Millennials Are Killing Chains Like Buffalo Wild Wings And Applebee's" are not uncommon.

    Dave & Buster’s Entertainment (NASDAQ:PLAY), Habit Restaurants (NASDAQ:HABT), and Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group (NASDAQ:DFRG) are three stocks in this space that I feel offer healthy upside at current levels.

Hot Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

Stock market technicians (or “chartists”) look at price patterns for clues about where a stock, sector or the stock market as a whole is going. Typically, they look at the price of the stock, but today I am going to look at the historical return pattern of the stock market, as it signals the potential for a tougher investment environment going forward.

The chart above (using symbol SPY as an S&P 500 proxy) starts back in the beginning of 1996, and tracks the cumulative return of the index and its “rolling” 3-year return. I consider 3-year time periods to be many times more relevant to analyze than shorter time periods. During most 3-year periods you will see good times, bad times and maybe even some ugly times that you may not catch by looking at year to date, past 1 year and the like.

Warren Buffett&s;s portfolio of stocks at Berkshire Hathaway has always contained a good number of insurance stocks. He likes them, always has.

Omaha&s;s most-famous investor started with his purchase of National Indemnity Company way back in 1967 and has continued since then with famous old names like GEICO and General Re, among many others.

If we imitate his methods, could we find success?

There&s;s no telling, but… one of the first steps in finding value is to see if the stock is trading at a low price/earnings ratio and if it can be purchased at a discount to book value.

Here are four insurance stocks that may fit as the type of value situation sought under the Buffett-like criteria he learned from Benjamin Graham:

&l;strong&g;AEGON N.V.&l;/strong&g; is a life insurance company based in the Netherlands and which trades on the New York Stock Exchange. With a price/earnings ratio of 5.4 and now priced at half its book value, it definitely looks like a value stock. The concern would be debt: There&s;s more of that than equity.

Generally speaking, companies that reside within the biotech and pharmaceutical industries are subject to a sizable amount of risk with regards to their drug candidates passing clinical trials and gaining regulatory approval. But consider that with the risk of failure, which could spell disaster for a stock, comes great reward as well. Some companies can see a massive upside just from winning a single midstage trial or even achieving as much as a Fast Track designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Basically, these updates within the industry have the potential to make or break these companies.

Here 24/7 Wall St. has included a calendar of a few of the biggest companies expecting clinical trial and FDA updates in February. We have added some color, a recent trading history and a consensus analyst price target.

Its worth mentioning that these dates may be subject to change due to various internal and outside factors. Some of these changes are positive developments, and some can be disasters if a company is deeply financed.

Top Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019

1. Blame the bonds: The normally boring bond market is causing serious drama on Wall Street.

An avalanche of selling sent the Dow and S&P 500 careening 5% lower last week, one of the stock market’s worst weeks since the 2008 financial crisis.

The culprit: Rapidly rising bond yields are alarming investors who got hooked on a decade of low interest rates.

So what’s going on here? And why the focus on the bond market?

Modern financial markets function on the belief that U.S. government debt is the safest investment on the planet.

Knowing how much they can earn from “risk-free” Treasury bonds allows investors to determine the cost of stocks and other riskier assets. Treasuries serve as the benchmark for all other forms of credit, from junk bonds to mortgages.

“The 10-year Treasury sets the price for every asset in the world,” said Brent Schutte, chief investment strategist at Northwestern Mutual.

That means the surge in the 10-year yield from 2.4% earlier this year to about 2.8% now — has increased the cost of money generally.
