Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Following billionaire investor Warren Buffett into stocks he owns has often been a profitable strategy over the past few decades. But reversing the order—buying a stock before Buffett buys it—can potentially be even more rewarding.

Quiz: How Well Do You Really Know Warren Buffett?

With that in mind, we went prospecting for companies that Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B, $137), Buffett’s holding company, has been buying recently, and four stocks that Buffett doesn’t hold but we think he ought to buy. We looked for the things he favors: com­panies that are leaders in their industries, that have a strong commitment to sharing profit with investors, and whose stocks sell for relatively low prices compared with earnings and underlying asset value.

A few caveats: First, even Buffett makes mistakes. Second, many of Berkshire’s picks are now made by Buffett’s two investing deputies, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler, not Buffett himself. And third, anyone guessing which stocks might be attractive to Berkshire is doing just that—guessing.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019: Oaktree Capital Group, LLC(OAK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel Miller, Jordan Wathen, and Jeremy Bowman]

    When it comes to dividend stocks, Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) is a household name. In fact, the beverage giant just approved its 57th consecutive annual dividend increase, bumping it up to $0.40 per share and a juicy yield of 3.5%. But if investors are looking for even bigger dividend yields for their portfolios, three Motley Fool contributors suggest taking a peek at Macy’s (NYSE:M), Oaktree Capital Group (NYSE:OAK), and General Motors (NYSE:GM). Here’s why.

    In this Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill has a special guest — Foolish investor-at-large Tim Hanson — and they lead off with a discussion of the annual letter, released Wednesday, from billionaire investing guru Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK). In it, Marks expressed concern about the number of questionable deals happening in this low-interest environment, as an excess of optimism and high risk-tolerance send capital toward assets it should probably shun at current prices. Then Chris and Tim respond to a podcast listener who’s wondering whether he should keep holding on to his General Motors shares. Beyond that, there’s a timely retrospective on Tim’s time at the Fool, and an equally timely debate on a divisive and controversial question: Are fun-size Halloween candies “fun” or a travesty?

Best Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2019

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) did an exceptionally good job of making it through the financial crisis in 2008 with minimal damage, weathering the turbulence in its stock price and rising to all-time record highs in the early and mid-2010s. Along the way, Wells Fargo also sought to regain its standing as a strong dividend stock, and it has successfully restored its quarterly payout to levels above what it had paid prior to the crisis. Yet recently, the bank has run into controversy with a scandal involving employees opening fake accounts, and Wells Fargo’s most recent earnings weren’t as strong as the company has seen in the past. Some investors are wondering whether the bank’s track record of dividend increases since the financial crisis could be in jeopardy. Let’s look more closely to whether Wells Fargo will raise its dividend in 2017.

Best Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2019: Oaktree Capital Group, LLC(OAK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    With that in mind, here’s why three of our contributors think Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B), Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK), and BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) are excellent penny stock alternatives.

  • [By Chris Hill]

    Gross: I’m going to go back to Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK), OAK. This is a stock that has not done well, year to date down 6%. That’s because they are an alternative asset manager that just quite frankly does not do well in this extended bull market. They work on distressed investments, investments that typically don’t go up in this type of a market. Their time will come, though. They have a stellar track record. They have a dividend in excess of 5%. When things finally go down, they will benefit.

Hot China Stocks For 2019

China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) is generally considered a conservative play on the Chinese market. However, shares of the country’s top wireless carrier tumbled more than 30% over the past three years due to ongoing concerns about the saturation of the smartphone market, rising expenses, and trade tensions with the US.

But are investors overreacting to those headwinds? Let’s discuss the bear and bull cases to see if China Mobile is worth buying near its multi-year lows.

Image source: Getty Images.

What the bears think about China Mobile

China Mobile finished May with 901.9 million wireless subscribers, which represented 4.5% annual growth and 0.3% monthly growth. 671.8 million of those subscribers were on 4G plans, which represented 15.2% annual growth but just 0.4% monthly growth.

China Mobile’s 4G customer base shrank for the first time in April with a 0.4% month-over-month drop.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Asset management companies like Oaktree Capital Group (NYSE:OAK) have to deal with market volatility in two very different ways. On one hand, they have to produce the exceptional returns that keep them ahead of their peers even when conditions make it difficult. Yet even when they are able to outperform, asset managers also have to address the fears of their clients, many of whom start to flee in down markets even when their funds are holding up quite well.

    In this Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill has a special guest — Foolish investor-at-large Tim Hanson — and they lead off with a discussion of the annual letter, released Wednesday, from billionaire investing guru Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK). In it, Marks expressed concern about the number of questionable deals happening in this low-interest environment, as an excess of optimism and high risk-tolerance send capital toward assets it should probably shun at current prices. Then Chris and Tim respond to a podcast listener who’s wondering whether he should keep holding on to his General Motors shares. Beyond that, there’s a timely retrospective on Tim’s time at the Fool, and an equally timely debate on a divisive and controversial question: Are fun-size Halloween candies “fun” or a travesty?

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

After two years of seemingly never-ending advances with very few shallow pullbacks the market has entered correction territory in record time.

It reminds me of a quote from investing legend Warren Buffett:

“For you see, Mr. Market is emotionally unstable. Some days he is cheerful and enormously optimistic At other times, Mr. Market is discouraged and terribly pessimistic”

If Buffetts analogy for the stock market rings true, this is definitely one of those times when the market is “discouraged and terribly pessimistic.”

But ironically, thats good news for you today. In fact, the news is even better than you may realize!

Coping With the Markets Emotional Swings

New investors may be unfamiliar with the idea of the market pulling back sharply over a week or two.

But if youve been tracking your investments for more than just the last decade, you know that when the market corrects, its actually a great time to take advantage of “discouraged and terribly pessimistic” traders.

More than two years after a government crackdown on corruption sent Macau gaming stocks tumbling, The Chinese government has unveiled yet another new regulation on the Macau gaming industry that has hit gaming stocks hard. The latest new law cut the daily ATM withdrawal limit in Macau from 10,000 patacas to 5,000 patacas, or roughly $626.

Unfortunately, transparency and predictability has never been one of the Chinese government’s strong points. Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ: WYNN) CEO Steve Wynn said the government’s behavior was “preposterous” when it kept operators in the dark about how many table games they would be allotted just weeks prior to opening billion-dollar new resorts. For the record, none of the major operators that have opened resorts in the past two years have received the table allotment they requested.

Although the U.S. gaming market likely doesn’t have the kind of long-term growth potential that Macau does, U.S. casinos are doing just fine these days. In the current fiscal year, Las Vegas Strip revenue is trending about 6% ahead of last year, and other regions of the country are doing even better. For better or worse, U.S. stock investors likely won’t have to worry about new regulations in the next four years under President-elect Trump.

    By contrast, the move that Buffett made with refining giant Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) was more dramatic. In the first quarter, Berkshire sold off more than 40% of its stake in Phillips 66, with a 35 million share sale. That move generated more than $3.3 billion in cash for the insurance giant.

    This strategy of acquiring assets from a large parent company to grow an MLP’s payout has worked well over the years. Refining giant Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) has been one of the most successful with this strategy since creating Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) in 2013. At that time, Phillips 66 launched an ambitious plan to grow its MLP’s distribution at a 30% compound annual rate through 2018 via a steady stream of dropdown transactions. Phillips 66 Partners is right on target, having increased the payout at a 31% compound annual growth rate since the IPO while maintaining solid financial metrics, including covering the payout with cash flow by a very comfortable 1.33 times last quarter and maintaining a conservative debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 3.2 in 2017. This strategy has also richly rewarded investors in Phillips 66 Partners, which has generated a total return of 89% since its IPO despite a recent sell-off, easily ahead of the S&P 500’s nearly 73% total return over that time frame.

    The Aeolus Robot, which got plenty of attention at this year’s CES, was shown delivering drinks and vacuuming floors during demos; its creators promise the robot will integrate with popular voice assistants. LG has shown off a robot that can act as a smart-home hub, as well as a line of robots meant for hotels, airports and other venues servicing consumers (they can do things like carry bags and groceries). And last week, Sony (SNE) announced it’s forming an R&D partnership with Carnegie Mellon related to developing cooking robots.

    What I like here is the fact that 3G is actively searching for acquisitions for Heinz to help settle the debt. Recently, an attempt was made to acquire Unilever, and I fully expect these acquisition forays to continue until a suitable target is captured. Some analysts have gone as far to say that monster Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) may be being seriously considered!

    The key to global success for consumer companies is building a strong brand, and you won’t find two better examples of how to go about doing that than Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) and Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM). Their iconic Coke soft drinks and Marlboro cigarettes have enjoyed continuous popularity around the world for a long time — and in the case of Philip Morris International, since long before it split from its U.S. parent.

    Markets are keeping a close eye on the 10-year bond, which is hovering near 3% – an important psychological level that is likely to influence future price movements. On Monday, Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” asked Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald if investors should be worried. Here’s what Keith had to say about the 10-year Treasury yield… and how it will affect your stocks and bonds in the future.
    The price of Brent crude oil topped $75.00 and hit its highest level since November 2014. Oil traders were eyeing the ongoing efforts of OPEC and Russia to reduce excessive production around the globe, rising demand ahead of peak driving season, and the possibility that the Trump administration will slap Iran with a new round of sanctions.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: KO, GOOGL, SLM
    Shares of The Coca-Cola Co.(NYSE: KO) added 1.2% after the firm easily beat earnings and revenue expectations. The firm cited strong demand for its new flavors of Diet Coke and its Coke Zero Sugar. Demand was so strong for the quarter that the firm reported organic sales growth of 5%. The company reported earnings per share of $0.47, topping estimates by a penny. Revenue of $7.6 billion easily beat Wall Street estimates.
    Shares of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL) seesawed in pre-market hours. The online search giant topped Wall Street earnings and revenue expectations after the bell Monday. However, shares were off 0.5% after executives announced that its business costs were on the rise. The firm’s real estate and computer purchases tripled in one year, to $7.3 billion. About one-third of that total came from its $2.4 billion purchase of the Chelsea Market building in New York City.

    Other Dividend Aristocrats likeCoca-Cola(NYSE: KO) or Procter & Gamble(NYSE: PG)have become slow-growth companies, but aren’t necessarily cheap. Investors often pay a premium for companies with strong brands and long histories of success, paying up for the security of a reliable investment and dividend stream. Both stocks have significantly underperformed theS&P 500 over virtually every time frame you could pick in the last decade. In other words, a long history as a dividend raiser isn’t a guarantee of outperformance, nor do the most consistent dividend stocks trade at value prices.
