Top 10 Performing Stocks For 2019

Becton Dickinson (BDX) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after agreeing to pay $24 billion for C.R. Bard (BCR).

Becton Dickinson dropped 4.4% to $177.07, while the S&P 500 rose 1.1% to 2,374.15. C.R. Bard jumped 20% to $302.41, making it the best performing stock in the S&P 500.

Leerink’s Richard Newitter and Ravi Misra argue that “growth doesn’t come cheap.” They explain:

We had expected BDX’s M&A engine would eventually resume as the company moved into its third year post the 2015 CareFusion (CFN) acquisition; however, we do think the expectation was for tuck-in or mid-sized type transactions. This transaction is certainly on the bigger side, and will mark the largest in BDX’s history just as BDX wraps up year 2 post the CFN integration. Naturally this could raise some questions as to whether mgmt is “biting off more than it can chew.” But, size (and the hefty price tag) aside, the rationale is not entirely out of left field in our view. BCR will benefit BDX through a higher top-line & GM profile and provides several fast-growing product offerings in underpenetrated markets (i.e. PICCs, Lutonix/Drug Coated Balloons, targeted temperature mgmt). BCR’s Foley catheters and PICC products should complement BDX’s portfolio & strategy aimed at offering a single complete end- to-end medication management & safety solution to hospitals. Also, BCR’s emerging markets (EM) growth is accelerating, which should help BDX’s EM division, which has been experiencing slowing growth in recent years.

Things aren’t going to script right now in the financial sector. It’s a widely established fact (based on years of historical evidence) that banks and other lenders typically prosper when interest rates are rising. In previous rate-tightening cycles, the financial sector was usually among the market’s top performers.

    Still, some individual stocks underperformed the indexes. Read on to learn why Gannett (NYSE:GCI), Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), and Samsung Electronics (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) fell today.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS) has been the markets punching bag over the past couple of years, and things dont seem to be changing anytime soon. The bookstore released its most recent quarterly results before the markets opened on Thursday, and this was met with investor trepidation.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    My colleague Dan Kline believes there’s also an opportunity for Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) to gain share in this space. Best known for books, it has also long been a retailer of specialty toys and games, and opening up its shelves to more mass-market toys could give it a wedge into the industry.Certainly this is a possibility, but like Walmart, Target, and other retailers, Barnes & Noble has no special knowledge or expertise in the space to allow it to make a grand entrance. It’s just not a market it knows well, which means that another type of retailer that could make a pronounced move in the space faces the same kinds of hurdles.

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    That leaves a hole in the market, one that will be filled partially by independent stores, but still leaves an opportunity for one struggling retailer. Unfortunately, the CEO of that retailer, Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), has recently commented that his chain plans to reduce its assortment of toys.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019

Generating alpha in today’s market is quite challenging. With the speed that information is disseminated it has become difficult to find undervalued opportunities to achieve outsized returns; once news becomes public, a stock quickly is re-priced to reflect this new information. In today’s highly competitive environment, the way to beat the market is to put disparate pieces of information together to paint a picture of what might be coming down the pipe.

Prior Examples

Glu Mobile (GLUU) Example

My article on GLUU provides a good example of how I pieced together disparate pieces of information to generate alpha. In my article entitled Glu Mobile: A Stock Darling for 2017, I outlined several factors that were contributing to the stock trading at a significantly undervalued level. These factors included: tax loss harvesting, investors not pricing in the value of GLUU’s evergreen strategy, GLUU’s short interest level, and strong insider buying.

Each of these factors in isolation didn’t provide a compelling narrative as to GLUU’s potential, but by putting them all together one is able to see why the stock might be temporarily trading at a depressed level. At the time of publishing, GLUU was trading at $1.94 per share and I suggested investors take their profits in August at $3.15 per share–although this was a bit too early since the stock is currently trading at $5.76 per share. Nonetheless, this anecdote provides evidence about how it is still possible to do a deep dive on a company and glean insight into why the market may be myopically viewing a stock.

    A value trap is a stock that appears to be cheap but, in reality, is not because of deteriorating business conditions. Examples of traps include pharmaceutical companies with a valuable patent set to expire, cyclical stocks at the peak of the cycle, or tech stocks in the midst of having their expertise being commoditized away. Unfortunately, this is a pitfall I have firsthand experience with. In early 2016, I bought shares of Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) for just under $93. At the time, Gilead’s trailing twelve months EPS was $11.74 giving it what I thought was a dirt cheap P/E ratio of 7.9 — I thought shares were a steal.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

Warren Buffett often jokes that he gets a quarter of his daily caloric intake from Coca-Cola. But an investment firm is suggesting that Kraft Heinz, which Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway owns a nearly 27 percent stake in, may want to buy Coke rival Pepsi.

Fixed income research shop CreditSights said in a report this week that Kraft Heinz (KHC) appears to still be itching to do a deal.

European consumer products conglomerate Unilever (UL), the owner of Lipton and Ben & Jerry’s as well as the Dove brand of personal care goods, rejected a more than $140 billion bid from Kraft Heinz earlier this year.

Unilever said at the time that the deal “fundamentally undervalues” the company and that “it sees no merit, either financial or strategic, for Unilever’s shareholders.”

Kraft Heinz subsequently withdrew its offer instead of pursuing it further. And that’s led to speculation ever since about what Kraft Heinz might target next.

The CreditSights analysts noted that Buffett has already ruled out the possibility that Kraft Heinz could buy Mondelez (MDLZ), the Oreo and Cadbury owner that split from Kraft Foods in 2012. (Kraft Foods subsequently merged with Heinz in 2015.)
