Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

The stock market kept performing well on Monday, and the Dow Jones Industrials posted its 12th straight all-time record high. Market sentiment was sunny following the release of Warren Buffett’s annual shareholder letter over the weekend, and the Oracle of Omaha made positive comments about the sustainability of the current bull market, which was able to overcome early declines in the major market benchmarks. However, some stocks didn’t fare as well as the overall market, and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), AmTrust Financial Services (NASDAQ:AFSI), and Horizon Pharma (NASDAQ:HZNP) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Tesla gets a poor review

Shares of Tesla fell 4% after the electric car manufacturer received a downgrade from analysts at Goldman Sachs. The Wall Street giant cut its rating on Tesla from neutral to sell, citing concerns about the company’s ability to launch its Model 3 mass-market sedan, execute on the strategy behind its acquisition of solar specialist SolarCity, and deal with the need to tap the capital markets to raise cash. Yet even the bearish analysts admit that Tesla has a competitive advantage over rival automakers with respect to the technology and architecture of its electric vehicles, and Tesla’s efforts to boost battery production appear to be working. Nevertheless, the question facing investors is whether Tesla can execute well on the huge opportunity it has in front of it, and at least in Goldman’s eyes, that could prove more difficult than initially thought.

    Second, and building on that previous point, what mortgage REITs might lack with a less-than-perfect rising-rate environment, they’ve gained in managerial experience. With the exception of industry juggernaut Annaly Capital Management (NYSE:NLY), virtually no other mortgage REITs had much experience prior to the Great Recession. However, most of these publicly traded mortgage REITs now have a decade or more of experience under their belts. This experience should come in handy as lending rates rise.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019: Costco Wholesale Corporation(COST)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    There are plenty of jokes about buying in bulk at warehouse chains such as Costco (Nasdaq: COST), such as this tweet by@amour72mg: “I’m going toCostcotomorrow. Anyone need 7 lbs of cheese?” That may be amusing, but if you or your household consumes a fair amount of cheese, that large quantity isn’t so unreasonable. Buying your household staples in volume is often a smart, money-saving move. Not always, but often. Make a note of the things you consume a lot of and then compare the prices at your regular shopping location (such as your supermarket) with the prices at your favorite warehouse store. Acomparisonof prices at a Costco and aWalmart(NYSE: WMT) earlier this year by the folks at kitchn.com found prices lower at Costco by 11% for milk, by 16% for eggs, and by 30% for wild Alaskan salmon. (Prices were lower at Walmart for some items, though, such as sliced turkey and paper towels.)

    There are several parts of the value chain that create natural and organic goods:

    Individual organic farmers, who you largely cannot invest in. Producers of organic foods, who take farmer’s goods and combine them for consumption. This includes players likeHain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN),SunOpta, andLifeway Foods. Grocers with a focus on natural and organic goods, which originally includedWhole Foods (now owned by Amazon),Sprouts Farmers Market (NASDAQ:SFM), andNatural Grocers — what I refer to as “pure-play,” which are grocers with a sole focus on organic. But the list now includes big names likeKroger(NYSE:KR),Costco(NASDAQ:COST), andWalmart(NYSE:WMT). Distributors specializing in natural and organic food, primarilyUnited Natural Foods.

    When the Great Recession hit, many of these pure-play natural and organic companies (read: not Costco, Walmart, or Kroger) were devastated. Consumers were pinching pennies and unwilling to pay the extra money for organic fruits.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

Monday was a big day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks moving generally higher to start the week. Strong performance in the energy market once again led stocks higher, including a nice gain in oil prices to move above the $72-per-barrel mark. The small-cap Russell 2000 Index hit another record high, but some companies reported news that prevented them from participating in the broader-based rally. Fifth Third Bancorp (NASDAQ:FITB), Qudian (NYSE:QD), and U.S. Steel (NYSE:X) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Did Fifth Third pay too much?

Shares of Fifth Third Bancorp fell 8% after the company announced that it would purchase Chicago-based MB Financial for $4.7 billion. For its part, Fifth Third believes that the deal will “creat[e] a leading retail and commercial franchise in the attractive Chicago market” for financial institutions. Yet the share price decline reflects investor worries that Fifth Third might have paid too much for MB. The cash and stock deal includes MB shareholders receiving cash of just $5.54 per share, with the remaining 90% of total consideration coming in the form of 1.45 shares of Fifth Third stock for every MB share. It’s fairly typical for shares of an acquirer in a merger involving mostly stock to see declines, but the extent of Fifth Third’s retreat indicates at least some skepticism regarding the price of the deal.

    The IEA’s forecast bodes well for oil stocks, especially those that have underperformed during the rally over the past year. Two that stand out are Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX) and Apache (NYSE:APA), since both have lost value even though oil has been red-hot. Because of that, they trade at dirt cheap valuations versus their peers. That underperformance doesn’t make sense given the growth these companies can deliver at much lower oil prices.

    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.

    Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
