Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Thursday there’s no question a basket of U.S. stocks will do better over time than bonds.

Stocks are “considerably more attractive,” Buffett said in an interview with CNBC’s Becky Quick on “Squawk Alley.” “Over time, a bunch of businesses that are earning higher returns on capital are going to beat a bond that’s fixed at roughly 3 percent.”

When he asked whether he’s buying stocks, Buffett said, “We’re buying stock this morning.”

Buffett, also known as “The Oracle of Omaha,” said he’s bought stocks under every U.S. president. He added the reason stocks are worth “a whole lot more” than decades ago is because American corporations have “plowed back part of the earnings.”

Buffett continued, “You can [also] buy a duplex next door and rent it out to people and do fine over time or you can buy a small piece of farm land or something or you can put it into something fixed income — bonds, bank deposits.”

    Just as promised on its first-quarter earnings call, General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) has announced a deal to exit its transportation business as part of a wider plan to unload $20 billion worth of assets. The deal to merge GE transportation with Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies (NYSE:WAB), or Wabtec, is somewhat complicated, but in general can be seen as a near-term positive for shareholders. However, it will do little to appease dyed-in-the-wool bears worried about the sustainability of the company’s dividend and restructuring prospects. Let’s take a look at both sides of the story.

    Wednesday was a generally favorable day for the stock market, with modest gains for most major benchmarks even as the Russell 2000 once again hit intraday record highs. Most investors’ attention was focused on the retail sector, where an especially strong performance from department store giant Macy’s suggested that the long period of difficult conditions for brick-and-mortar retailers might finally have come to an end. Ongoing concerns about other factors — including the move in the 10-year Treasury yield above the 3% mark and the outcome of a possible summit between U.S. and North Korean leaders — helped keep the gains somewhat in check. But some companies had good news that sent their shares sharply higher. Under Armour (NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA), Boot Barn Holdings (NYSE:BOOT), and Abaxis (NASDAQ:ABAX) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Own For 2018

Following past boom/bust cycles, the oil business appears to have bottomed in February 2016 at $27 a barrel. The bruising multi-year bust in crude oil prices was the biggest reason for the world stock market sell-off from late 2015 to early 2016 of roughly 15% overall. The cruel irony of ultra-low prices is its disruptive effect on regular exploration activity. A short-term oil market depression in expectations disproportionately slashes oil drilling activity. Oil exploration budgets for 2017 are down 65% from 2014 and the smallest in 12 years, DESPITE a record estimate for global demand next year. In the long-run, oil & gas development and production may fail to keep pace with the steady growth in total demand. Will the 2015-16 “bust” sow the seeds of the next “boom” phase in pricing?

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Markets are cheering news that the supposed trade war between the United States and China is “on hold,” according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Mnuchin and U.S. President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, announced that both nations have reached an agreement, one that established a framework to help address ongoing trade imbalances between the two countries.

Prior to the election, a member of the Trump administration said that the United States would not recognize the authenticity of the election. The United States is considering additional sanctions on Venezuela. Today is a major day for mergers and acquisition activity.

    For several quarters, The New York Times'(NYSE:NYT)earnings conference calls have centered on opportunities arising from the company’s booming digital customer growth. No longer do executives face innumerable questions from analysts on weak print customer volume, or declining print advertising spends. Now, discussions revolve around the journalism and media giant’s strategies to maintain its online services momentum.

    The only U.S. papers which have been able to buck these trends are The New York Times (NYSE: NYT), the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal, each of which produces content that appeals to enough people that they have created large digital subscription bases. At the end of the last reported quarter, The New York Times had over 2.6 million digital-only subscriptions. No other newspaper has a number which is even close.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Own For 2018: IF Bancorp, Inc.(IROQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Max Byerly]

    News stories about IF Bancorp (NASDAQ:IROQ) have been trending somewhat positive this week, Accern reports. The research firm rates the sentiment of press coverage by reviewing more than twenty million blog and news sources in real time. Accern ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of negative one to one, with scores nearest to one being the most favorable. IF Bancorp earned a news sentiment score of 0.16 on Accern’s scale. Accern also gave news coverage about the savings and loans company an impact score of 47.5310825195986 out of 100, meaning that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an effect on the company’s share price in the near future.

More Signs Newspaper Business Is Faltering Quickly

The newspaper industry has too many newspapers and too many chains to look at it as a whole to determine its health. However, there is no question its health has gotten much worse over the past 20 years as online news has crippled what has been, until recently, a print business. To see what is happening to the newspaper industry currently, observers have to consider it almost property by property.

The most visible trouble in the industry is the battle between Digital First Media and its employees. The company is either the third or fourth largest chain, depending on the yardstick. Alden Global Capital is its majority owner. The investment firm has continued to chop the number of employees. Oddly, the financial results from the papers are fairly good, because they are, in many cases, handsomely profitable, which might be a sign the newspaper industry is still a financially healthy one. Ironically, the health is due to substantial layoffs.

A more direct way to look at the industry is two recent developments. The Chicago Sun-Times, the second paper in the nation’s third-largest city, asked consumers to throw it a lifeline. It said its survival was at risk and asked people to pony up $7.49 a month for online subscriptions. The action cannot be viewed as other than an appeal to keep the paper from foundering soon.

At another of the largest chains, McClatchy Co. (NYSEAMERICAN: MNI), its flagship property, the Sacramento Bee, laid off 15 editorial workers. That may not seem like many, but in an already thinned out newsroom, it is a lot. The layoffs were also the third in just over a year. There were reports that McClatchy also laid off workers at its other West Coast properties.

What is notable about McClatchy is that it is one of the largest chains in America. Despite resources, restructurings and fairly robust digital resources, it continues its retreat.

In just a few weeks, the largest publicly traded newspaper companies will post their first-quarter results. Other than New York Times Co. (NYSE: NYT), which has had success selling digital subscriptions, last year’s typical results were revenue drops of 5% to 10%.

The early writing on the wall for the past month is that the financial problems at newspapers have not abated. It will be another very rough year.
