Top 5 Safest Stocks For 2019

The municipal-bond market is dominated by individual investors, and it turns out they’re not nearly as good as the pros.

Over the past decade, individuals earned an average of about 1.26 percentage point less annually on their investments in open-end state and local government bond funds than the funds themselves, according to a study released by Morningstar Inc., which took account of what investors make after shifting their money in and out of the market. That gap was the biggest among the eight asset classes the research company examined.

Even though state and local government debt is one of the world’s safest investments, buyers are still prone to so-called headline risk, or bad news stories that undermine the market’s perception as a haven and cause investors to sell when they should stay put.

That happened in 2010, when banking analyst Meredith Whitney triggered a selloff by predicting that recession-battered governments would default on "hundreds of billions of dollars" of bonds. That forecast proved widely off the mark, and in 2011 municipals returned 11 percent. They haven’t had a better year since.

Top 5 Safest Stocks For 2019: EOG Resources, Inc.(EOG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) has done an excellent job enriching its shareholders over the past two decades. Investors, for example, who bought $1,000 of the company’s stock following its separation from Enron 20 years ago would have seen that grow into more than $25,000 over that time frame, which is much better than the $3,200 they’d have made by investing the same amount into the S&P 500.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Leading shale driller EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) built its business to prosper at $50 a barrel. At that price point, the company can generate enough cash to grow oil production by 16% to 20% this year. And at $60 oil, EOG Resources could produce $1.5 billion in free cash, with even more at current prices. EOG plans to use its incoming windfall to pay off debt and boost its dividend, both of which should grow shareholder value.

    Here’s how share prices of the largest U.S. natural gas producers reacted to Thursday’s report:

    Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM), the country’s largest producer of natural gas, traded down about 0.3%, at $81.14 in a 52-week range of $72.16 to $89.30. Chesapeake Energy Corp. (NYSE: CHK) traded down about 3.0%, at $4.18 in a 52-week range of $2.53 to $5.60. EOG Resources Inc. (NYSE: EOG) traded down about 1.0% to $116.71. The 52-week range is $86.08 to $131.60.

    Furthermore, the United States Natural Gas ETF (NYSEARCA: UNG) traded down about 0.7%, at $22.77 in a 52-week range of $20.40 to $27.92.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That prediction would have been unfathomable just a few months ago. While some oil bulls thought prices could surprise to the upside, the consensus outlook was that crude would be in the low to mid $50s this year thanks to surging U.S. oil production. Because of that, most producers based their budgets on oil averaging $50 a barrel, including EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). In EOG Resources’ case, $50 oil would provide it with the cash flow to pay a dividend that was 10.4% higher than 2017’s level and drill 690 more wells, which would boost oil production about 18%. Meanwhile, Marathon Oil could produce enough cash at that price point to pay its dividend and fund the new wells needed to boost companywide output 12% compared to last year. Anadarko Petroleum, likewise, could fully fund its dividend and a growth-focused capital plan, which would see it boost oil output 14% this year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Last fall, ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) outlined its three-year operating plan, anticipating that it could increase production at a 5% compound annual growth rate assuming oil averaged $50 a barrel. While the return to a growth trajectory was nice to see, its forecast paled in comparison to rivals like EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), which both project double-digit oil production growth rates over the next few years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips’ strategy has inspired similar plans by rivals. EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), for example, has prioritized dividend increases. After a long pause during the oil market downturn, the company restarted its dividend growth engine this year. EOG Resources initially gave its investors a 10.4% raise but followed that up with another 19% increase a few months later, boosting its year-to-date total to 31%. That’s part of EOG Resources’ aim to boost its payout at a more-than-19% compound annual growth rate going forward.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks For 2019

What happened

Shares of Rogers Corp. (NYSE:ROG) gained 19.9% in April 2017, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

So what

The company reported first-quarter results on April 26, sending share prices nearly 12% higher the next day. Rogers saw 27% year-over-year sales growth and 79% higher earnings, leaving analyst estimates far behind in both cases.

Now what

Rogers shares have now gained 72% over the last 52 weeks, trading steadily near all-time highs. The maker of specialized materials used in battery systems and wireless antennas has consistently delivered solid earnings surprises over the last three years, often coupled with equally strong revenue wins.

This company is poised to continue making a killing in several emerging markets, including the Internet of Things and automotive computing. Best of all, Rogers is winning competitive contracts without resorting to pricing discounts. Trailing operating margins have increased from 12.4% to 14.2% over the last four quarters. In other words, clients are choosing Rogers over rival materials providers for other reasons than low prices, such as product quality and dependable ordering and delivery processes.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Box was an early mover in the content and file management space in enterprise markets. In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet(Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.

    Cloud computing has seen amazing growth in recent years, but that’s also made investors extremely demanding when it comes to the success of players in the cloud space.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Shares of mall-focused REIT GGP (NYSE:GGP) have plunged in 2018. Initially, the stock price fell due to ongoing worries about the so-called “retail apocalypse” and its effect on mall occupancy and lease rates.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    In recent years, investors have become increasingly fearful about the so-called “death of the mall.” As a result, shares of top-tier mall REITs like Taubman Centers (NYSE:TCO), Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG), GGP (NYSE:GGP), and Macerich (NYSE:MAC) have tended to trade at a discount to their net asset values (NAV), the underlying value of their assets.
