Top Medical Stocks For 2019

There’s perhaps no social program in the U.S. that’s relied upon more than Social Security. With zero disrespect to Medicare, which primarily helps to partially cover big-dollar medical expenses for seniors during their golden years, no social program does more than Social Security.

According to the Social Security Administration, more than 3 out of 5 current retirees leans on the program for at least half of their monthly income. Then there’s the analysis from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities that finds Social Security income is responsible for keeping 22.1 million beneficiaries above the federal poverty line, including 15.1 million retired workers. It’s simply that important.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

When Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) introduced the iPhone 6 series smartphones back in September 2014, the devices came in two different screen options. The standard-sized model with a 4.7-inch display was called iPhone 6 and the larger one with a 5.5-inch display was marketed as the iPhone 6 Plus. 

Apple continued to offer both screen sizes for several subsequent generations, including the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 product families.

Image source: Apple.

Last year, alongside the iPhone 8 product family, Apple introduced a radically redesigned device, called the iPhone X. This device came in only a single screen size: 5.8 inches. While the iPhone X has done well for the company, there’s clearly an opportunity for Apple to appeal to a broader set of potential customers by introducing a larger-screen version of the iPhone X.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019: TGC Industries Inc.(TGE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo, Travis Hoium, and Todd Campbell]

    Three stocks that aren’t even on Wall Street’s radar yet are Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE), Invitae Corporation (NYSE:NVTA), and MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM). Here’s why these three Motley Fool contributors think these stocks could open up the door for investors who are looking where others aren’t to potentially earn some outsized gains. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE) is one of several pipeline companies that emerged from the rubble of the oil market downturn very different from how they entered it. Like many of its peers, Tallgrass recently consolidated its corporate structure by acquiring its master limited partnership (MLP). That transaction strengthened its financial profile. And that positions the company to deliver a sustainable income stream with significant upside potential from expansion projects coming down the pipeline, making it a much more appealing option for income seekers.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE) is a relative unknown in the energy sector. While the company operates one of the more important natural gas pipelines in the country, investors have yet to catch on to its story. Because of that, shares of the pipeline company are cheap, which positions investors to potentially capture meaningful gains if the discount between its peers narrows. Add in a monster dividend and significant upside from some expansion projects it has in development, and Tallgrass Energy could deliver attention-grabbing returns in the coming years.

    Tallgrass Energy (NYSE: TGE) is one of 34 publicly-traded companies in the “Natural gas transmission” industry, but how does it contrast to its peers?

    Data source: Ionis Pharmaceuticals.

    What happened with Ionis Pharmaceuticals this quarter?
    Revenue increased thanks to $41 million in royalties from Biogen’s (NASDAQ:BIIB) sales of Spinraza, up from just $5 million in the year-ago quarter. Because the tiered royalty rates reset each year, the royalties as a percentage of sales will end up being higher in the quarters to come this year. Despite the higher revenue, earnings turned negative on a GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) basis: Ionis and Akcea Therapeutics (NASDAQ:AKCA) increased spending in preparation for the launch of Tegsedi for hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (hATTR), and Waylivra for familial chylomicronemia syndrome, a rare disease that causes the buildup of lipids. Ionis is still the majority owner of Akcea, so its financials are incorporated into Ionis’ financials. The Food and Drug Administration pushed back its goal for making a decision on the marketing application for Tegsedi (the new brand name for inotersen) to Oct. 6, 2018. Ionis provided additional data analysis that the FDA needs additional time to review. In April, Ionis signed another deal with Biogen to develop antisense drugs for neurological disorders. In the deal, Ionis gets $1 billion up front, including an equity investment, in exchange for Biogen having first choice of neurology targets on which to exclusively collaborate with Ionis. Biogen is paying for everything beyond the initial discovery stage, with Ionis eligible for royalties and milestone payments as the drugs advance.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Withers]

    2U(NASDAQ:TWOU) has built a fast-growing business on the back of the digital graduate programs it creates for colleges and universities. Because the company bears the upfront development costs for these programs and enters into a long-term revenue sharing contract, 2U’s customers stand to benefit significantly from this relationship.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Own Right Now

Legend has it that Canada Bill Jones was the greatest card sharp ever to work the Wild West casinos.

He could beat any man at any game. And while he was generous to those in need, he was ruthless when it came to making money from “suckers” at the poker table.

“Its immoral to let a sucker keep his money,” Jones was reported to have said

The statement is particularly timely today. Because the majority of Wall Street is in the exact same business the business of fleecing suckers and keeping their money.

Its a timeless concept. Even the book of Proverbs states that “A fool and his money are soon parted.”

So whats the message for us as investors?

Dont be a sucker! (or to use the King James Version, “dont be a fool!”)

Today, I want to take a quick look at the market from a card sharps perspective. If you see whats happening from a professional investors perspective, I think youll see this turbulent environment a little differently.

    While Trump’s nuclear tweet appears to have taken some folks off guard, the fact is that the U.S. has been planning a major upgrade and refurbishmentof its nuclear arsenal for quite some time — since at least the early years of the second Obama administration, in fact. As far back as three years ago, we were writing about a U.S. Air Force effort to begin upgrading the nation’s aging fleet of Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles — a contract that Aerojet Rocketdyne (NYSE:AJRD), among others, is counting on to juice its rocket revenues. Rival rocket scientist Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) is bidding on the same contract, and whether it’s Aerojet or Orbital that eventually ends up winning this piece of the nuclear rearmament project, there should be money aplenty to go around.

    On one particularly big news day, April 28, the DSCA announced that it has notified Congress of no fewer than seven separate pending arms sales that it plans to push through. These deals are aiming to sell:

    110 radar-seeking air-to-ground “HARM” missiles to Australia, generating sales of $137.6 million for prime contractors Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) and Raytheon (NYSE:RTN). Four P-8A Poseidonsubmarine-hunting jet aircraft to New Zealand — a $1.46 billion payday for Boeing (NYSE:BA). 13 76 mm cannonfor installation aboard Israeli Navy SA’AR 4.5 and SA’AR 6 Missile Patrol Boats at a purchase price of $440 million. (Italian firm Leonardo S.p.a.’s DRS North America subsidiary will be the contractor on that one.) Nine Bell 429light utility helicopters to Slovakia, yielding sales of $150 million for Textron (NYSE:TXT). And five CH-47D Chinookhelicopters, sold out of U.S. government surplus to Greece for $80 million.

    Also included in the DSCA’s list of pending contracts are two directed toward the NATO Support and Procurement Agency, specifically:

    Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) occupies a charmed space in the U.S. market for putting satellites in, er, space.

    At one end of the space launch continuum, you have United Launch Alliance, whose Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle, developed by Boeing (NYSE:BA), can put a payload massing in excess of 28 tonsinto orbit in a single launch — at a cost of $350 million.At the other end, new space start-ups like Vector Space are promising to launch a new generation of small satellites into low-earth orbit for prices as little as $2 million a shot. But what about the middle?

    Much of this was based on educated guesswork, however, as we extrapolated what we knew about the finances at SpaceX rivalsBoeing(NYSE:BA),Lockheed Martin(NYSE:LMT),Orbital ATK(NYSE:OA), andAirbus(NASDAQOTH:EADSY), and applied it to what wethoughtthat might mean for SpaceX’s own finances. It would have been a whole lot easier to just take a good hard look at SpaceX’s own financial documents, and get the answers straight from the source.

    Last Monday, U.S. defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) announced it would buy Orbital ATK Inc (NYSE: OA), a direct Aerojet Rocketdyne competitor,for about $7.8 billion (a 22% premium to Orbital’s Friday close) in a deal thatwill give it greater access to lucrative government contracts and expand its arsenal of missile defense systems and space rockets. While Northrop already has a significant presence in payloads, it has not had launcher capability, an area that Orbital brings for both space and missile defense. Orbital also has contracts with NASA and the U.S. Army. The all-cash transaction is the biggest in the defense sector in two years and comes ahead of planned upgrades of U.S. ballistic systems (as the saber rattling by North Korea continues), which are expected to drive demand for missiles.

Top 10 Stocks To Own Right Now

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) has long been a stock that I wanted to purchase for my portfolio but have never done it till now. A little over a month ago I wrote an article about how the company has missed on some metrics, and as a result, I was willing to purchase the stock at $115 if it ever fell to that level by writing the November put, but the stock never reached that level by the expiration date. So, instead, I purchased a small position outright at the end of November and have some unrealized losses for now. Nevertheless, it is always important to remain vigilant in doing homework on the stocks one owns in their portfolio to see what else is happening.

There has been a broad selloff in tech stocks since December started, but Facebook has weathered the storm as the stock is flat in the last month. Investors have been selling off the tech plays because they are not considered to be a part of the Trump cohort of stocks which should thrive for the next four years. Trump has clearly stated his presidency will revolve around infrastructure spend, and because Facebook has nothing to do with infrastructure, investors have been using it as a source of funds to purchase the Trump related infrastructure plays.

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.
