Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

My interest in GNC Holdings (NYSE:GNC) stems from an interest in basic cheapness and deep value investments. Below I’ve highlighted some of the ‘cheapness’ valuations of GNC at $8.25 (as of March 3, 2017 close).

GNC’s current market cap is $564 million and has an enterprise value of $2.7 billion with 68,403,901 shares outstanding. Forward P/E = 4.91 P/FCF = 4.06 TTM highest stock price of $35.90, lowest stock price of $6.95

The merits of a GNC long position are well documented in other Seeking Alpha articles, especially from the spirited writer Courage and Conviction Investing (I have really enjoyed reading his work). Courage and Conviction has written extensively on the potential near- and long-term catalysts of the GNC turnaround model under interim CEO Robert Maran. I’ve highlighted a few of the bullish investment thesis points below:

Despite growth in online supplement retailers (e.g. Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and bodybuilders.com) and wholesale shops (e.g. Costco (NASDAQ:COST)), GNC continues to be profitable, generating free cash flow. Potential short squeeze if near-term catalysts materialize due to high percentage of short floats. New GNC business model will gain traction and produce incremental same-store comps and increases in revenue by Q3 2017. Indeed, in the most recent earnings call, GNC management said they are seeing 7% growth in transactions from the new GNC model. Insider purchasing – interim CEO Robert Maran purchased nearly $5.4 million worth of GNC stock on the open market late in February. Other insider purchases as well. GNC could be a potential takeover target. On Friday, March 3, 2017, GNC started the day up 8% after rumors of a KKR takeover.

As a contrarian investor, I am drawn to the speculative appeal of the long thesis for GNC. I think many of the bullish GNC Seeking Alpha contributors have done an excellent job articulating the long argument, and I don’t have anything truly unique to add to this discussion.

The next best-known concept would be Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK), which is faring well with a saucy 43% return. However, even that market-thumping return pales when pitted against a more obscure burger chain that was left for dead last year.

Top Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

Income investors have to evaluate a lot of factors when looking at the dividend stocks they add to their portfolios. One quick way to streamline the process is to focus on high-yield stocks of companies with long histories of dividend increases. Right now midstream energy players Magellan Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:MMP), Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE:EPD), and Enbridge Inc. (NYSE:ENB) look like top options. Here’s what you need to know about each.

1. Lowest yield, safest option

Magellan’s yield is currently a robust 5.5%. That’s well more than double the roughly 2% you would get from an S&P 500 index fund, but it is the lowest among this trio of midstream stocks. That said, the master limited partnership has increased its distribution every single quarter since it went public in 2001, an 18-year streak.

Top Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Monster Beverage (NASDAQ:MNST) issued second-quarter 2018 earnings results on August 8. The energy-drink pioneer reported record quarterly net revenue that crossed the billion-dollar mark for the first time, landing at $1.02 billion. Profitability was pressured by a 320 basis-point decline in gross margin, however, and was one of the significant points that company management discussed with analysts on Monster’s quarterly earnings conference call.

Let’s review the essentials on this topic, as well as two other key exchanges from Wednesday’s discussion, directly below.

1. Numerous factors are squeezing margins

…[T]here’s also been a switch between the proportion between strategic brands which have concentrated models, [and] higher margins; and Monster. And Monster is continuing to grow ahead of the strategic brand, so that continues to put some pressure on the margin as well.– CEO Rodney Sacks

CEO Rodney Sacks’ comments followed a more specific list of gross operating profit headwinds enumerated by CFO Hilton Schlosberg. These included rising aluminum import costs due to tariffs enacted by the Trump administration, increased promotional spends due to higher cooler placement fees and shelf costs, rising sales of lower margin coffee-based beverages, and climbing international sales, which are slightly less profitable than their domestic counterparts.

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.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

NEW YORK — Stocks fell Wednesday as the Dow dropped more than 100 points, putting more distance between the blue chips and that elusive 20,000 mark.

Dow 20,000 has been in sight for several days now, with the index getting as close as a couple of dozen points from the milestone but never reaching it.

At the 4 p.m. ET close, the Dow stood 0.6% lower for the day, off 111 points and 166 away from 20,000. Meanwhile the Nasdaq sank 0.9% and the S&P 500 lost 0.8%.

The broad decline wiped out most of the gains from the day before, when the Nasdaq composite index closed at a record high.

Trading was quiet in a light week of economic and company news before the New Year’s Day holiday weekend.

Shares of luxury handbag maker Kate Spade (KATE) leaped 23.1% after news reports surfaced about a possible sale of the company.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Scana Corporation(SCG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Aside from checking on whether the company achieves that aim, there are two other items investors should keep an eye on in the second half of the year. First, the company continues to make progress on its proposed merger with SCANA (NYSE:SCG). Shareholders of SCANA recently voted in favor of that transaction, and Dominion has won the approval of several regulators, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the Federal Trade Commission, and the state of Georgia. However, the company still needs to get permission for the deal in North Carolina and South Carolina, with the latter one being a key sticking point due to SCANA’s failed nuclear plant in the state. While Dominion has offered several concessions in the deal to win over both customers and legislators, it might not be enough since the state wants an even bigger rate reduction. The company remains optimistic that it can close the deal by the end of this year, though it’s unclear if that will happen.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    IBM CEO Ginni Rometty. Image source: IBM.

    5 reasons to buy IBM
    IBM posted its second straight quarter of annual sales growth after almost six years of declines. Its revenue rose 5% annually to $19.07 billion, beating estimates by $390 million. Its non-GAAP earnings also grew 4% to $2.45, topping expectations by $0.06. IBM’s closely watched “strategic imperatives” (SI) revenue — which comes from its higher-growth cloud, social, mobile, security, and analytics businesses — rose 12% annually (10% on a constant currency basis) to $37.7 billion over the past 12 months. That accounted for 47% of IBM’s revenue, compared to42% a year earlier. This tells us that Big Blue’s shift from legacy businesses to higher-growth ones is gradually paying off.IBM also noted, without disclosing an exact figure, that its security revenues also rose 60% annually during the quarter. IBM’s total cloud revenue over the past 12 months rose 22% annually (20% in constant currency) to $17.7 billion. For the quarter, its higher-growth cloud-as-a-service revenue rose 25% annually (20% in constant currency) to $10.7 billion, compared to 20% reported growth in the fourth quarter. Three of IBM’s four computing business segments (Cognitive Solutions, Global Business Services, and Technology Services & Cloud Platforms) posted positive annual sales growth and topped analyst estimates. IBM’s stock remains fairly cheap at less than 11 times this year’s earnings, and it pays a forward dividend yield of 3.8%. That low valuation and high yield should limit its downside potential.
    5 reasons to sell IBM
    IBM’s total sales were buoyed by a weak dollar. On a constant currency basis, its revenue actually stayed flat year over year during the quarter. On a constant currency basis, its Global Business Services and Technology Solutions & Cloud Platforms revenue would both have declined 1% annually. Its Cognitive Solutions revenue rose 6% in dollars, but just 2% on a constant currency basis. The

    The price of Bitcoin surged more than 17% to top $8,000 in a rapid move that surprised many investors this morning. The sudden rally appears to be the result of a short squeeze, according to CNBC contributor Brian Kelly. This means that investors who had been betting on a decline in the price of the world’s largest cryptocurrency had been forced to jump back and buy the currency again. A lot of people have been betting on a decline in the price of Bitcoin heading toward the April 17 tax deadline. The expectation is that many people will need to sell their Bitcoin in order to raise cash to meet tax obligations. Here’s our latest daily insight on why the Bitcoin bear market may end very soon.
    Markets gains have been capped by concerns about the latest news out of the Federal Reserve. On Wednesday, minutes from the Fed’s most recent meeting indicated that policy makers are prepared to raise interest rates several more times in the coming months in order to stave off concerns about inflation.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Wanted: $6 million in missing gaming chips. Last seen: The lavish Wynn casino in Macau.

Police are hunting for millions of dollars in casino chips after they were stolen — allegedly by one of Wynn’s own croupiers — raising security concerns in the world’s biggest gambling hub.

The heist happened Tuesday at the Wynn Macau (WYNMF), one of the marquee destinations in a Chinese territory whose gambling revenues dwarf those of Las Vegas.

Macau police told CNNMoney that a dealer at the Wynn Macau and a potential accomplice have been arrested and that they are not currently looking for other suspects. They declined to identify the two people by name.

Police didn’t say how the stolen chips were taken past casino security. But local media reported that the suspect allegedly stuffed them into a bag in a VIP room and simply carried them out.

To turn the chips into hard cash, the thieves or their associates would eventually need to bring them back into the casino.

    We have you covered. This week, we did our digging into the numbers, and we have found three stocks that could surge 80% or more in the months ahead. Let’s dig into them as the market opens… right here.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    A leaked report from a Chinese government think tank warned of “financial panic” across the country. In addition to concerns about the ongoing trade battle with the United States, the National Institution for Finance & Development warned about the ongoing use of leverage in the stock market. The think tank argued that China’s central bank must be ready to step in and support the nation’s markets (the Shanghai Composite is off 20% since January) in the event of a liquidity crisis. This morning, the U.S. Department of Commerce said that Q1 gross domestic product (GDP) growth slowed far more than analysts had expected. During January through March, we saw the weakest levels of consumer spending in roughly five years. GDP clocked in at just 2.0%, a downturn from the 2.2% reported by the agency last month. Markets appear to believe that the economy has rebounded during the second quarter thanks in part to the massive tax cuts in January. However, ongoing trade tensions and increasing uncertainty around the globe could potentially spur a panic at any time. In 2018, major telecom carriers will begin rolling out 5G networks across the country, and the development could be one of the biggest ever. This technological leap is creating some incredible profit opportunities fortech stocks. According to Swedish network equipment manufacturer Ericsson ADR (Nasdaq:ERIC), new 5G-related features could produce as much as $1.3 trillion annually in additional revenue for carriers by 2026. Just imagine how much money you could make if you get in early and invest right now in the top 5G stocks. It would be a fortune. Today, we show you the undervalued stock that is going to lead this revolution, and it could make you rich.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY) released first-quarter results last week, but all eyes were looking forward as the company waits for a potential approval of its hereditary TTR amyloidosis (ATTR) drug, patisiran.

  • [By Brian Orelli]

    The delay in an FDA decision for Tegsedi puts it behind competitor Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY), which expects to hear from the FDA by Aug. 11 for its hATTR drug patisiran. But Sarah Boyce, the president at Akcea Therapeutics, doesn’t think a few months will really matter: “We don’t really feel that’s going to have any impact and the drugs will be close enough together from a launch perspective. So not really [going] to make any adjustments, and we’re very well prepared to be ready to launch following approval.”

    Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating.

These candidates still have a long way to go before hitting the market. The company relies highly on collaborators for funding. Any development/regulatory setback would be a negative for the company.  However, Alnylam reported positive data from the ATLAS study in the first quarter which led to regulatory filings for its late-stage pipeline candidate patisiran and the FDA set an action date of Aug 11, 2018. The company along with its partners Sanofi and The Medicines Company, restarted fitusiran's ATLAS phase III study and advanced inclisiran in the ORION-9, -10, and -11 phase III studies, respectively, with results expected for both programs in 2019. Alnylam expects to achieve the profile of three marketed products by the end of 2020.”
