Top 5 Stocks To Buy For 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — Top Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg appeared on Capitol Hill and hit on what has emerged as the key battlefront for technology companies in Washington.

“We don’t think it’s a question of whether regulation,” she testified during a congressional hearing. “We think it’s a question of the right regulation.”

Senators seized on foreign election interference and growing privacy concerns to raise the specter of regulating social media during a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee that ran more than 2 1/2 hours.

They questioned Twitter’s chief executive Jack Dorsey and Sandberg over their companies’ efforts to disrupt foreign influence campaigns and the spread of disinformation on their platforms, warning that the companies’ efforts were falling short ahead of November’s midterm elections as social media users continue to be targeted by foreign actors seeking to exacerbate political divisions in the U.S.

Top 5 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Leidos Holdings, Inc.(LDOS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (NASDAQ:KTOS) and Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) are two specialists serving separate parts of the U.S. defense market. Though they are chasing different business, both see opportunities for market-beating growth in the quarters to come.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) and Aerohive Networks (NYSE:HIVE) are both aerospace companies, but which is the superior business? We will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their institutional ownership, analyst recommendations, earnings, valuation, profitability, risk and dividends.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Leidos Holdings Inc. (NYSE: LDOS) was maintained as Buy but removed from the Conviction Buy list at Goldman Sachs.

    Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) already was rated as Buy at Goldman Sachs, but now the defense contractor has been added to the prized Conviction Buy List, with a $410 price target (versus a $317.13 close).

    The $3 billion competition, which includes management and maintenance of a range of navy and marine networks, will pit Perspecta against two of the largest government IT vendors, Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) and the recently bulked-up IT arm of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD). This is a business where scale is vitally important, potentially putting Perspecta in a difficult position.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Scale is important in government IT, as agencies are looking more to the private sector to take on increasingly large and complex systems and because larger companies — like in the case of the Navy business CACI has acquired — can use their contacts across different branches to cross-sell services to multiple customers. CACI, at less than $5 billion in annual sales, is less than half the size of industry leader Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) or the newly merged IT business of General Dynamics, but Asbury seems determined to pursue deals that would narrow that gap.

That decision paid off during the fourth quarter, when Union Pacific’s crude oil shipments increased 25% as it helped producers get their oil to higher-priced refining and export markets.

Best Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

Redfin’s (NASDAQ:RDFN) first-quarter results show that the technology-powered residential real estate brokerage continues to gain share in the $31.8 trillion U.S. housing market. Its low fees are resonating with home sellers and its online marketplace is enjoying strengthening network effects, helping to drive its revenue sharply higher.

Surging traffic

Redfin’s market share increased to 0.73% of U.S. existing home sales by value, up 0.15% from the first quarter of 2017. The company’s low commissions continue to fuel its expansion.

“What drove that growth is the power of our 1% pricing for listing a home,” CEO Glenn Kelman said in a press release. “Being able to sell homes for more money at a lower fee is a major competitive advantage, and it’s easy for consumers to understand.”

Redfin is pressing this advantage by ramping up its marketing investments. This helped to drive a 28% year-over-year spike in traffic to its website and mobile apps.

Top Casino Stocks To Own For 2019

In an agewhen vending machines can dispense anything from lipstick to headphones, perhaps it was only a matter of time before the industry would dream up a new, automated way to help people stock up on marijuana.

American Green, a Phoenix-based medical-cannabis technology company, has unveiled a prototype for a vending machine that uses biometric verification technology to sell controlled and age-restricted items. Besides dope, it can dispense other items where positive identification is a purchasing prerequisite — pharmaceuticals, casino chips, alcoholic beverages or evenguns.

The device would be ideal for casinos that want to go cashless, drug stores looking to sell prescription-only or other controlled items like antihistiminesand pot dispensaries that have customers who would rather avoid a face-to-face transaction, according to American Green’s Chief Operating Officer Stephen Shearin.
