Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

The market is filled with stocks. Ever since bond yields went to zero as the Federal Reserve tried to rescue the economy from the mortgage crisis, it has forced people to go further out on the risk curve in order to get the income they had been used to getting from bonds.

Risk is the foremost concern of my stock advisory newsletter, The Liberty Portfolio. Most investors unknowingly take on far, far too much risk. Things are all rosy now with the market 30% overvalued, but trust me, when the correction comes, investors will suddenly learn about risk the hard way.

So as normally “conservative” investors take on higher levels of risk by investing in securities mistaken perceived as “safe,” or “blue chip,” just to squeeze out those 4% yields, they may be missing some overlooked high-dividend stocks that carry less risk.

    Marvell Technology (MRVL) and Cavium (CAVM) both posted large gains on Monday, as investors wagered Marvell’s $6 billion deal to buy Cavium is now less likely to be blocked by Beijing. Broadcom (AVGO) , which has bought plenty of chipmakers over the last few years and has indicated it’s open to making smaller deals after seeing the Trump Administration shoot down its hostile bid for Qualcomm, also has to be pleased at the possibility that Beijing won’t act as a deterrent to chip industry dealmaking going forward.

Best Medical Stocks To Own Right Now: Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.(WMT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    However, that expansion pace likely slowed at the start of 2018, as it has for other major retailers that have reported earnings recently, including Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Home Depot. Furthermore, executives have warned that this fiscal year will show another decline in profitability as Target shifts toward a more digitally focused business.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    In fact, JD now has three international giants supporting its efforts, with Google adding its name to a list that includes Tencent Holdings (NASDAQOTH: TCEHY) and Walmart (NYSE: WMT). Having these three in your corner is a pretty big vote of confidence, and could transform both the Chinese and global races for e-commerce supremacy.

Best Medical Stocks To Own Right Now: Crestwood Equity Partners LP(CEQP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Oasis Midstream Partners (NYSE:OMP), and Hess Midstream Partners (NYSE:HESM) are far from household names. Because of that, most investors probably missed the fact that these high-yielding master limited partnerships (MLPs) have been red-hot this year. However, while all have delivered strong returns in 2018, each one still has plenty of fuel left in the tank to continue providing outsized gains in the coming years, which is why investors won’t want to keep overlooking the potential of these pipeline companies.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The best high-yield stocks share three common characteristics: They generate steady cash flow, have a conservative payout ratio, and possess a solid balance sheet. Three companies that comfortably fit that profile are Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP). Not only that, but this trio of midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs) takes things a step further by having visible growth coming down the pipeline, which makes them excellent income stocks to buy right now.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That’s why I own several high-yield stocks. However, of that group, three currently stand out as having the greatest probability of delivering market-beating returns from here: Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), Brookfield Property Partners (NASDAQ:BPY), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Because they’re my highest conviction ideas, I’d buy any one of them right now.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Dollar General (DG) marked its 27th consecutive year of same-store sales growth in fiscal 2016. It followed this milestone up with a beat on both the top and bottom lines during its first quarter of 2017, with comps once again growing – but by only about 0.7%. As I was sifting through the retail carnage, Dollar General was one of the companies that stood out as above average, so I decided to take a closer look with this article.

The business

The company’s primary niche seems to come from its low cost operating structure. The majority of its stores are rural, with roughly 70% of them located in towns of 20,000 people or less. It constantly seeks ways to reduce (or at least control) costs that won’t affect the shopping experience for its customers, many of whom are primarily in a lower income bracket. This is exhibited by its low prices, where 80% of its stock-keeping units are set at $5 or less.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

By Antoine Gara, Corinne Jurney and Nathan Vardi

From the rise of quantitative trading driven by data to new financial technologies and start-ups, the Wall Street landscape is shifting. The faces of change on Wall Street can be found on this year’s 30 Under 30 Finance list.

The rising stars of Wall Street are building quant apps for clients at Goldman Sachs, making investments based on sustainability themes at Morgan Stanley, and creating data-driven trading models at BlackRock. They are partners at big hedge fund firms like Tiger Global Management and Pershing Square Capital Management, and work for hedge fund legends like billionaire Stanley Druckenmiller.

Young entrepreneurs are shaking-up the financial services sector. Matthew Humphrey, 29, is a serial entrepreneur who has already sold a business for $100 million at age 24. He is currently the CEO and founder of LendingHome, which has raised more than $100 million in venture capital funds and lent out nearly $1 billion. Humphrey’s company, which has 240 employees, uses proprietary risk scores to extend credit to non-traditional borrowers who have already repaid $400 million of principal with virtually no realized losses. Humphrey matriculated to Carnegie Mellon to study computer science at the age of 13.
