Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019

Many people don’t realize it, but when you get that final paycheck, it is one of the most important financial events of your life.  The idea of no longer working for money and having access to a paycheck can do weird things to some people.  In many cases, it can turn them into a penny pinching, wheeling-dealing, cheapskate who will go out of their way to save a buck or get a better deal.

On the surface, it’s admirable and illustrates good financial responsibility.  But deep down it can actually be a bigger problem for their social life, family, and friends, not to mention physical health.

The harsh reality is, going to extremes to save money can take over and dominate a person’s life. It can leave those around them frustrated, burdened, and likely to avoid both personal and social interactions that involve money. In other words, it can push people away.

Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019: Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.(CHKP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.’s (NASDAQ: CHKP) short interest decreased to 10.10 million shares from the previous 11.16 million. Shares were trading at $115.74, in a 52-week range of $93.76 to $119.20.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    First Mercantile Trust Co. lifted its holdings in Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:CHKP) by 53.1% in the fourth quarter, according to the company in its most recent filing with the SEC. The fund owned 2,084 shares of the technology company’s stock after acquiring an additional 723 shares during the quarter. First Mercantile Trust Co.’s holdings in Check Point Software Technologies were worth $214,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Those numbers look dismal compared to the company’s cybersecurity peers. For example, Symantec’s bigger industry peer Check Point Software (NASDAQ:CHKP) is expected to post 2% sales growth and 5% earnings growth, yet its stock trades at just 17 times this year’s earnings.

  • [By Chris Neiger]

    Shares of IT security company Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) jumped by 15.3% in July, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after the company received a buy rating from a BTIG analyst and as the company reported solid earnings in its second quarter that surpassed some of management’s own expectations.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

You have an investing advantage over Warren Buffett. No, seriously, you really do.

Buffett has admitted that he regrets not buying Google parent Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Amazon.com years ago. And he’s only been a big buyer of Apple stock in the past few years. Apple gained more than 2,000% in the 10 years before Buffett jumped aboard.

The reality is that Buffett doesn’t invest in what he doesn’t understand. That means he can miss out on some of the hottest trends — at least for a while. And therein lies your advantage: gaining an understanding of trends relatively early on and buying the best stocks to profit from those trends. Here are three hot trends that Buffett is missing out on, along with investing ideas for each one.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks For 2019

This stock’s low price isn’t going to last forever — it’s time to get in while the getting’s good.

One of the main goals of my premium newsletter High-Yield Investing is stability. I like industries that don’t go through unpredictable hot and cold cycles. Student Transportation (NYSE: STB) is a textbook example.

Millions of kids must travel to and from school each day, rain or shine. With a national fleet of school buses and a stack of contracts with various school districts, the company generates consistent, recurring income to share with its stockholders. That, along with its current yield of 5.9%, is why STB remains one of my readers’ favorite stocks.

My next recommendation enjoys similar stability thanks to another fact of life — babies.

In the unpredictable financial world, there are few things as guaranteed as birth rates. There were approximately 4 million births in the U.S. last year, 4 million give or take in 2016, 4 million in 2015, 4 million in 2014, 4 million in 2013. I could go on, all the way back to the 1950s, with little deviation year to year.
