Top 10 Low Price Stocks For 2019

In what would be a blow to American aerospace giant Boeing, Delta Air Lines is set to order around 100 jetliners from European rival Airbus, according to two people familiar with the deal.

Atlanta-based Delta will announce a deal later Wednesday for the Airbus A321neo, the sources said. The agreement with Airbus maker will be accompanied by a planned purchase of Pratt & Whitney engines, they added.

Spokespeople for Delta (DAL)and Airbus declined to comment. Boeing (BA) said it had no comment. Delta’s board of directors is expected to meet Wednesday to vote on the Airbus purchase, the sources said.

Delta had been talking to Boeing about buying around 100 of its 737 Max 10 airliners, a person familiar with the matter said.

The move comes a day after Canada announced plans to ditch a deal with Boeing for new F/A-18 Super Hornets in favor of used fighters from Australia.

Boeing and Delta are embroiled in an ongoing trade dispute over the airline’s purchase of the smaller Canadian Bombardier C Series. Boeing has accused Bombardier of selling the C Series to Delta at unfairly low prices, and the U.S. Commerce Department has recommended a preliminary 300% tariff on the import of the jets. Bombardier and the Canadian government deny any unfair trade practices.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2019: Discovery Communications, Inc.(DISCB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCB) (NASDAQ:DISCK) has traded very cheaply over the past few years. As more and more U.S. consumers “cut the cord” on the traditional cable bundle, Discovery’s channels (which now include all Scripps Networks Interactive channels) have seen their subscriber counts decline. That, combined with the high debt load incurred for the company’s 2017 acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive, sent investors running for the hills last year. In 2017, the company’s three share classes dropped from roughly 10% to roughly 21%.

Discovery was apparently pleased enough with the channel’s progress to buy 100% of Eurosport in July 2015, and that year, Eurosport won the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in Europe from 2018-2022.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2019: Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited(TEVA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    Although Allergan forecast free cash flow of $8 billion in 2016 that would allow it to “rapidly de-lever the balance sheet,” it didn’t quite work out that way. Under pressure following Valeant’s fall from grace, Allergan announced in mid-2015 it would sell Actavis’ legacy generic-drug business to Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) for $40.5 billion, including $33.75 billion in cash, a move that would allow it to reduce its debt far faster than it would’ve been able to otherwise. Following that announcement, rumors began swirling that Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) wanted to acquire Allergan to capture tax savings associated with Allergan’s being domiciled in low-tax Ireland, rather than the United States, where taxes were much higher. Allergan confirmed those rumors in October and soon after announced a massive $160 billion deal that valued Allergan’s shares at $363.63 each.
