Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

Doug Hughes focuses on lesser-known, small cap regional banks; the editor of Bank Newsletter looks for banks that operate in attractive regional markets, often ones that would be attractive acquisition targets.

AvidBank Holdings (AVBH) has the fastest growth of any bank out there and yet is still one of the safest with almost no bad loans, and a great, great market area in Palo Alto, California.

Management knows what it is doing and they will likely sell within 3 years. Earnings power is $3.00 a share by 2018. This is a great bank that is operating in great markets.

I consider the shares to be very safe, make it a top holding in the current environment.

With rates going up and most large regionals banks up 30% or more recently a deal price would now have to be at least 2.5 times book or $32 a share.

In my view, this stock has almost zero downside risk in an otherwise high-risk market. Buy now and sleep well. I consider the stock to have an excellent risk-reward ratio.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now: The NeutriSci International (NU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Last week — to the day, in fact — Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) announced it was teaming up with neutraceutical company NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) to create a new kind of health supplement that gave consumers the ability to tap into the benefits of hemp. We hailed it as the shape of things to come. What we didn’t know, however, was how quickly those things would take shape. Just this morning the company told LXRP shareholders it was already forging another such symbiotic relationship…. this one with Hempco Food and Fiber Inc (CVE:HEMP).

    Simply put, Lexaria Bioscience is focused on improving the bioavailability of the healthy stuff found in food, supplements, vitamins, and yes, even in cannabis and hemp.

    It’s not widely recognized, but the bulk of the vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, amino acids and all the other desirable components of the pills you take and foods you eat don’t actually get absorbed into your body. Sometimes as much as 96% of the ingredient in question isn’t extracted, and instead passes right through. Not only is it a waste of time and money, it’s a bit of a hassle to swallow a big capsule — or several capsules — for little to no benefit.

    Lexaria Bioscience changes this. In short, Lexaria has developed and patented a proprietary technology that makes valuable molecules taste better and absorb better in the digestive tract. This platform could be applied to a variety of nutritional and health-oriented favorites, but Lexaria is starting with hemp as it’s the most underserved market and arguably the biggest growth opportunity. Hemp, and hemp oil to be exact, can provide a lot of various medical benefits like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more.

    The future for Lexaria Bioscience is partnerships… licensing its science and know-how to companies with existing product lines and distribution networks that can easily inject hemp

    What do you get when you cross a science that drastically improves the absorption of cannabidiol (the healthy component of cannabis) with pterostilbene (an antioxidant) tablet? It’s not a joke in search of a punch line. It’s going to be the health supplement millions of consumers have been waiting for, brought to them by a joint venture between NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) and Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP). The two companies announced this morning they were entering a joint venture that would utilize Lexaria Bioscience’s proprietary infusion platform and tap into NeutriSci International’s existing distribution network to create and market a whole new supplement product line.

    Lexaria has developed and patented a technology that makes valuable molecules taste better and absorb better in the digestive tract. This platform could be applied to a variety of nutritional and health-oriented favorites, but Lexaria is starting with hemp as it’s the most underserved market and arguably the biggest growth opportunity.

    Just to be clear, hemp and marijuana are not the same thing. Hemp doesn’t have any tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC) in it, which is the key driver of its psychoactive — the ‘high’ — response. Hemp, and hemp oil to be exact, does have cannabidiol in it though, and for those who’ve been following the saga of medical marijuana and cannabis, they’ll know cannabidiol can provide a lot of various medical benefits like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more.

    NeutriSci International is Canadian corporation that specializes in the marketing, development and distribution of proprietary nutraceuticals. It’s got a rather wide array of products in its portfolio, but the one of immediate interest is its pterostilbene, as it fits best with the hemp-absorption technology Lexaria Bioscience brings to the table.

    Pterostilbene (found in blueberries, by the way) is o

    Indeed, it’s also garnered interest from business partners. In November, Lexaria Bioscience and NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) jointly announced they were entering a joint venture that would utilize Lexaria Bioscience’s proprietary infusion platform and tap into NeutriSci International’s existing distribution network to create and market a whole new supplement product line. In January, the duo announced it had finalized new supplement that is done testing and will soon be available for consumers. The tablet (a ‘melt’, technically) is a combination of pterostilbene and cannabidiol, offering a double-barreled benefit to the health-conscious.

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    In the grand scheme of things it shouldn’t be surprising, though odds are good at least a few people are surprised at how quickly it happened. That is, health supplement and healthy-foods brand name NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) and the developer of a cannabis-infusion technology — a means of packing more CBD into hemp oil — called Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) have finalized new supplement that is done testing and will soon be available for consumers. The tablet (a ‘melt’, technically) is a combination of pterostilbene and cannabidiol, offering a double-barreled benefit to the health-conscious.

    The benefits of cannabidiol, found in hemp and marijuana, are relatively well understood by the market at this point. Cannabidiol can do a human body a lot of good, like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more. Pterostilbene is the lesser-known of the two components of the new tablet, but no less impressive and no less beneficial. Pterostilbene is known to combat high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and oxidative stress. Combining the two is a real one-two punch for the health-conscious.

    That’s what made November’s news so exciting… NeutriSci International has an established name and marketing channel, while Lexaria Bioscience has the science that makes hemp oil far more functional. Indeed, to fully appreciate the upside for LXRP, one has to embrace Lexaria’s science and why it matters.

    The company has increased that payout at a fast pace over the years, including 15% in 2017. NextEra Energy Partners expects that to continue in those to come, with it currently planning to grow the dividend at a 12% to 15% annual pace through 2022. Powering that growth will be a combination of acquisitions both from its parent companyNextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) and third parties, as well as organic expansion projects. Although, drop-down transactions from NextEra Energy’s vast portfolio of renewable assets alone can easily support the company’s growth forecast. Because of that, investors have the opportunity to earn total annual returns in the 16% to 19% range when adding the distribution growth rate to the current yield. That outlook positions NextEra Energy Partners to continue delivering market-beating returns, which is something it has done since NextEra took it public in 2014.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now: Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    The Dow utility average ended last week at a stabilizing 639.95 after trading as low as 616.19 on Nov. 14. Keep in mind that a “death cross” was confirmed on election day, when the 50-day simple moving average fell below the 200-day simple moving average, indicating that lower prices are likely ahead. The 200-day is now at 666.30. The utility average has returned to my range of key levels of 635.23 and 670.81, which remain magnets for the remainder of 2016. This week’s value level is above the Nov. 14 low at 620.87. Investors seeking the safety of dividends can trade the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLU) , which is a basket of 28 utility stocks.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now: Ultra Petroleum Corp.(UPL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By STOCKPICKR]

    As energy commodity prices have sold off in recent months, so too have the E&P stocks that pull those resources out of the ground. And Ultra Petroleum (UPL) has been no exception. The good news is that you don’t need to be an expert technical trader to figure out why this stock looks toxic here — the setup in shares of Ultra Petroleum is about as simple as they get.

    UPL is bouncing its way lower in a textbook downtrending channel, a price setup that’s formed by a pair of parallel trendlines that have kept UPL range-bound since April. The price channel in UPL identifies the high-probability range for shares to stay within, and so, with shares pressing up against resistance for the eighth time since this price channel kicked off, it makes sense to be a seller on the next bounce lower.

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23).

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Brean Capital reported on Friday that it has upgraded natural gas utility company WGL Holdings Inc (WGL).

    The firm has raised its rating on WGL from “Hold” to “Buy,” and has given the company a $46 price target. This price target suggests a 12% increase from the stock’s current price of $40.62. The upgrade was primarily based on valuation and future investment opportunities.

    “Like many utilities in the gas LDC space, the shares of WGL Holdings have come off recent highs and are now trading at a level we consider attractive,” analyst Michael Gaugler comments. “Beyond valuation, we consider the recent announcement of conditional approval of Dominion’s Cove Point facility for LNG export as a positive development in terms of future investment opportunities, given the company’s one-third interest in the Commonwealth Pipeline project, which we believe will be revisited due to future increased demand.”

    WGL Holdings shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock has been mostly flat YTD.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: Urban Outfitters Inc.(URBN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    The retail bubble, so dubbed by Urban Outfitters’ (URBN) CEO, claimed another victim today, as Express (EXPR) became the latest retailer to get hammered after releasing its earnings.

    Karlie Kloss!!! Getty Images

    It wasn’t the earnings, so much, as the guidance that’s sinking Express’s shares.Express reported a profit of 28 cents, in line with analyst forecasts, but predicted earnings of 65 cents to 73 cents in 2017, below forecasts for 82 cents, according to FactSet. Shares of Express have dropped 11% to $9.51 today, while Urban Outfitters fell 2.6% to $24.75. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) gained 1% to $42.38.

    MKM’s Roxanne Meyer sees tailwinds–and headwinds–for Express’s stock:

    There are several catalysts that have potential to support improving fundamentals, but more materially in 2H and beyond: 1) reduced SKU count (down 20% in women’s/10% in men’s), which means EXPR will be investing in greater depth instead of breadth; 2) benefits from new systems should begin to bear fruit in 2H; 3) potential sales lift from the loyalty program relaunch (realistically a 2H opportunity); 4) launch of petites online in spring and launch of a collection collaborated with Karlie Kloss in April (unclear as to how material a driver); and 5) lower IMU/AUC in 2H from sourcing initiatives. However, these are balanced by: 1) a down-trending Portofino tops collection, which we believe has historically been meaningful to 1Q results; 2) pressure from higher wages and incentive comp (will require a MSD comp to leverage SG&A); and 3) merchandise margin not expected to improve until 2H17, despite corrective actions to assortment (mainly driven by compares).

    Deutsche Bank analystMyles Walton contends it does. He explains why:

    Last March, we wrote aboutthe favorable historical correlation of BA stock performance with reductions in Boeing Commercial Airplane’s workforce. In 8 of the 9 years from 1997-’15 when BCA cut headcount, BA outperformed the S&P 500 by an avg of 24%.

Importantly, through Feb ’17, BCA employment is down 2%+, well ahead of expectations for the year. Coupled with aggressive 1Q share repurchase and one of the biggest winners of corporate tax reform, we see shares continuing to claw higher. Reiterate Buy on upside to new PT.
