    SIT THIS ONE OUT and you could miss an American economic revolution that could send three little pot stocks soaring up to 1,000%. Click here to see why…

    Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) is in the middle of a big battle between the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Motion Picture Academy. According to the letter, the DOJ is concerned about a recent rule change by the MPA that requires films to be released more widely in traditional movie theaters to qualify for Academy Awards. This could limit the participation in these awards for companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN). The DOJ suggests the rule may raise anti-trust concerns in the future. Shares of Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: PLAY) popped more than 7.5% after the restaurant and gaming chain topped Wall Street earnings expectations. The firm beat both top- and bottom-line revenue expectations and reported a big jump in same-store sales. Today, look for more earnings reports from Acuity Brands Inc. (NYSE: AYI) and Signet Jewelers Ltd. (NYSE: SIG).

    5G Is Coming: The tech breakthrough of the century could rest on this $6 stock – get all the details here.

    Investors in Lyft Inc. (NASDAQ: LYFT) are fuming after the price of the ride-sharing giant’s stock fell below the launch price of $72. Shares plunged almost 12% Monday, and they’re now off sharply from the high of $86 that we saw on the first day of trading. Some Wall Street analysts suggest the fall in price is a signal that valuations of Unicorn companies like Lyft and Uber are too lofty in today’s market. Today, we have to take a victory lap since we warned investors to avoid the Lyft IPO. Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is about to make things far more difficult for its grocery store competition. In an effort to jump-start sales at Whole Foods, Amazon plans to slash prices Wednesday on more than 500 products, including produce and meat. Look for earnings reports from Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: PLAY), NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE: DG), and GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME).

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Perhaps it is because trading stocks can often mirror the thrill of winning big at the blackjack tables, or maybe it is because Las Vegas conjures images of the world’s most flashy brands and businessmen. Regardless of the reason, it is clear that gambling stocks are always among the most popular on Wall Street.

Luckily for investors, now is also an interesting time to be buying gambling stocks, as continued Vegas strength, legalized sports gambling coming to the U.S., and an overall international interest in gaming has created some interesting buying opportunity.

Of course, no industries are without risk, and recently, some casino giants have been selling off as gambling data has hinted at a potential slowdown in Macau after an extended recovery in the world’s top gaming hotspot.

Still, we can use Zacks’ proven stock-picking methods to find solid stocks in any industry. Check out these casino stocks today:

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019: Tesla Motors, Inc.(TSLA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    In November 2017, Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) Elon Musk unveiled the Tesla Semi to much fanfare. It sparked a discussion about the transformative potential to electrify long-haul trucking. Transportation is responsible for 27% of America’s total carbon emissions, and medium- and heavy-duty trucks account for 23% of transportation’s total carbon output. Replace diesels with zero-emission engines, and you’d drop U.S. carbon emissions over 6%.

    Come on, for real? Standard & Poor’s has raised its corporate credit rating on dying Sears Holdings Corp. (SHLD) to CCC- from SD. S&P gave Sears a shout-out for its “demonstrated progress” on cost reductions and access to new liquidity (thank you majority shareholder, Eddie Lampert). The ratings agency did leave its outlook negative. The only thing that should be raised at Sears are the cranes to knock down all the properties that were once thriving stores. Those cranes could then help turn the properties into high-return assets, say Tesla (TSLA) semi truck dealerships or Amazon Echo stores. Sears has not earned any form of upgrade, on anything, and it’s financial position remains very precarious. The company’s day of reckoning is fast-approaching and if you thought the Toys ‘R’ Us bankruptcy was big news, wait until you see the reports about Sears’ final days.

    Again, this seems an ambitious schedule for a major urban public transportation project. Still, if Musk can pull it off, the Chicago Loop project could provide a financial boost to Musk’s most famous company, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). TBC has confirmed that it will be buying the pods that will run passengers through Loop’s tunnels from Tesla. Depending on how many pods we’re talking about (and it could be a lot, to accommodate those 80 million O’Hare passengers), that could mean a sizable revenue boost for Tesla, albeit along with attendant capital investment costs to build the new type of vehicle.

    Pontoon boats are a versatile vessel as they can be used for fishing, sports, cruising, and day trips. That latter part is key because rival boatmaker Brunswick (NYSE:BC) — which Polaris used to have a business relationship with when it was in the marine market — says that overnight trips with boats are fading. Industry site Boat Industry quotes Brunswick’s freshwater boat group President Jeff Kinsey as saying, “There’s been a clear shift toward day boating, and that speaks directly to the pontoon with its seating capacity, its open space, its amenities and its comfort.”

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2019

Buying beaten down biotech stocks is a strategy I focus on, especially at the end of each year because as tax loss selling fades, it is possible to see very strong gains into the New Year. For example, last December, I wrote an article about Immunogen (IMGN) titled “Why This $1 Biotech Stock Is A Strong Buy Now” and that stock went to over $8.50 per share in 2017. Almost a year ago, I wrote about Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners (CPRX) when it was beaten-down due to a setback, in an article titled “Why This $1 Biotech Stock Is A Strong Buy For 2017” and now it trades for nearly $4 per share. These are the kinds of gains that are possible with biotech stocks. This keeps me looking for undervalued companies in this industry that (even if there are delays or setbacks) still have strong balance sheets and a promising pipeline. With this in mind, I have found a beaten-down biotech stock pick that appears to offer similar upside.

SCYNEXIS, Inc. (SCYX) is a biotechnology company that is focused on developing treatments for serious and life-threatening fungal infections. The lead pipeline candidate, “SCY-078” is an oral and intravenous drug treatment for several fungal infections. This company has an impressive management team, a strong balance sheet, and a promising pipeline thanks to positive results for its lead candidate. Based on the cash this company has on the balance sheet, and the strong results that its lead candidate has produced so far, it appears that this biotech stock is deeply undervalued. The stock has drifted lower in the past couple of weeks (presumably because of some tax-loss selling) but that won’t last much longer and we could even see a short squeeze soon. Let’s take a closer look below.

We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful. – The Oracle of Omaha (Warren Buffett)

On Feb. 16, 2018, the shares of Adamis Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ADMP), a specialty bioscience to service the allergy and respiratory disease market, rallied 9.40% (as the stock traded $0.28 up at $3.20).

In an excellent Seeking Alpha research, author John Engle alluded that the main concern is that the company has not been able to secure a marketing partner for Sympjepi – a single dose injection of epinephrine as the supportive treatment of the life-threatening allergic reaction coined anaphylaxis in patients at least 66 pounds. Interestingly, Sympjepi is more affordable than the EpiPen (injectable epinephrine) of Mylan (NASDAQ:MYL).

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Shutterstock

A few weeks ago we discussed how you can make 12% annually, forever, from stocks. Now let’s apply those lessons to 2017, and highlight five that should do even better (17%+ returns) this year (and likely beyond).

Remember, projecting our returns from any given stock is simple. We simply add together the three ways it can pay us:

Its current dividend.

A future dividend hike.

Share repurchases.

It also helps if the stock is inexpensive, as buybacks deliver more bang for management’s buck. So let’s stick with stocks that are dirt-cheap, trading for 10-times free cash flow (FCF) or less for this exercise.

Here’s an example of a stock ready to return 17% or more over the next year. Blue chip refiner Valero (VLO) has a great management team that knows how to make money no matter what happens with energy prices.
