Butters said in a note that 80 percent of the S&P 500 companies that have reported quarterly results through Friday have posted better-than-expected earnings. “If 80% is the final number, it will mark the highest percentage since FactSet began tracking this metric in Q3 2008,” he said in the note Friday.

Much of the earnings outperformance comes from telecom, health-care and tech companies, Butters noted. All of the S&P 500 telecom companies have reported better-than-expected earnings this season, while 96 percent of health-care companies have outperformed earnings expectations. In tech, 93 percent of company earnings have exceeded forecasts.

Through Friday, 81 percent of S&P 500 companies had released their latest quarterly reports. Some of the companies that have reported better-than-expected results include major banks J.P. Morgan Chase and Bank of America as well as tech giants like Amazon and Apple.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    In PMT, Honeywell’s process-solutions rival Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) continues to report strong results. But whereas Emerson’s CEO David Farr is expecting to benefit from relatively stronger LNG (liquefied natural gas) spending in the current cycle, Honeywell’s LNG revenue accounts for just 5% of its PMT sales, and it’s more heavily exposed to petrochemical and refining spending.

By contrast, Wendy’s (NYSE: WEN) has 6,700 global locations that generate $1.6 billion in annual sales and $230 million in free cash flow — not to mention a dividend that was just raised by 18%.

    UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) is America’s top health care insurer. After making many acquisitions over the past few decades to cover millions of Americans’ health insurance, UnitedHealth is also quite well-known to retirees for its Medicare Supplement Plans offered through AARP. One drawback here is that UnitedHealth pays only a 1.4 percent dividend yield at the start of 2019, but in the past five years its shares more than tripled in price, and it is now even a member of the Dow, with a market cap of over $250 billion. It also now is more targeted as a health insurer with an easier model to understand than some of its peers, which are merging into health care conglomerates of sorts.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday was an extremely strong day for the stock market, as major indexes finished well above where they started the session. Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

    Stocks to Watch Today: KHC, HD, JWN, M, AAPL
    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more. Earnings season may be winding down, but concerns about the U.S. brick-and-mortar retail industry are always high. This week, Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD), Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN), and Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M) will report earnings from the holiday quarter. Look for earnings reports from American States Water Co. (NYSE: AWR), Chatham Lodging Trust (NYSE: CLDT), EPR Properties (NYSE: EPR), Etsy Inc.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Another no-brainer acquisition that would make sense for Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway is satellite radio operator Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). It’s worth pointing out that Berkshire Hathaway already owns 137.92 million shares of Sirius XM, or about 2.9% of all outstanding shares. 

  • [By Joe Tenebruso]

    Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) dominate their respective corners of the entertainment industry. As they’ve risen to power over the last decade, they’ve earned fortunes for investors along the way.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    A lot can happen to a stock in just a couple of weeks. There were 275.5 million shares of Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) sold short at the end of January, the largest number of bearish bets placed on the satellite radio provider in more than a year. Two weeks later, short interest fell to 174.7 million shares, a fresh 52-week low in pessimism. 

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    Or look at Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI). It traded for just $0.70 in 2010. Now it’s worth $5.90 a share, an incredible 778% surge.

    Those are the sorts of potential gains the top penny stocks offer, and you wouldn’t have to trade sketchy shell companies on pink sheets to access those gains either.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Kohl’s Co. (NYSE:KSS) – Investment analysts at Jefferies Financial Group upped their Q2 2020 earnings per share (EPS) estimates for shares of Kohl’s in a report issued on Tuesday, March 5th. Jefferies Financial Group analyst R. Konik now expects that the company will post earnings of $1.90 per share for the quarter, up from their prior estimate of $1.86. Jefferies Financial Group also issued estimates for Kohl’s’ Q3 2020 earnings at $1.04 EPS, Q4 2020 earnings at $2.48 EPS, FY2020 earnings at $6.10 EPS and FY2021 earnings at $6.45 EPS.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    A few years ago, Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) management determined that many of the department store chain’s stores were too big. In many cases, Kohl’s was filling these stores with more inventory than was necessary to meet demand, just so the stores wouldn’t look empty. That excess inventory led to margin-sapping clearance discounts at the end of each season.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    In PMT, Honeywell’s process-solutions rival Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) continues to report strong results. But whereas Emerson’s CEO David Farr is expecting to benefit from relatively stronger LNG (liquefied natural gas) spending in the current cycle, Honeywell’s LNG revenue accounts for just 5% of its PMT sales, and it’s more heavily exposed to petrochemical and refining spending.

    Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE: EMR) offers technology and engineering solutions to industrial, commercial and consumer markets. While it has had exposure to oil and gas, the company is poised for earnings growth, and its dividend hike in November of 2018 marked the 62nd straight year of dividend hikes.

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) recently had its first-quarter 2019 earnings call, and one week later held an investor conference where CEO David Farr laid out his medium-term outlook. The key takeaway from both events is that Emerson Electric’s immediate guidance has some uncertainty around it, but unless you believe that the global economy will slow notably in the next few years, the stock looks like a good value for income-seeking investors. Here’s why.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday was an extremely strong day for the stock market, as major indexes finished well above where they started the session. Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Neha Chamaria]

    XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) is having a hard time winning back investor confidence. Shares of the logistics company slumped 17.2% in February, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, giving up all its gains from January and then some. In fact, the stock continues to head lower this month, having dropped another 4% as of this writing.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) has grown fantastically in recent years by aggressively acquiring related businesses. However, management recently announced its intention to pause its acquisition strategy in favor of repurchasing shares.

    Numerous renters typically occupy a single building known as a colocation center (or “carrier hotel”). There are plenty of interested parties ranging from tiny website hosting companies and online retailers to colossal data storage providers and telecoms. Some of the biggest users include content distributors such as Disney (NYSE: DIS) and Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX), as well as cloud companies like Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), and IBM (NYSE: IBM). 

  • [By Leo Sun]

    IBM’s (NYSE:IBM) stock rallied more than 20% this year, as a better-than-expected fourth-quarter report in January and optimism about its acquisition of Red Hat (NYSE:RHT) brought back value-seeking investors. IBM still looks cheap at 10 times forward earnings and it pays a high forward dividend yield of 4.6%.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    It might seem silly to compare IBM (NYSE:IBM) with Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO). One is an aging tech company and the other sells sodas and other beverages. However, the two companies have similarities: They own aging core businesses, they’re trying to boost their growth with acquisitions, and they’re both considered reliable income stocks.

Hot Cheap Stocks To Watch Right Now

Real-estate investment trusts, or REITs, have not performed well recently. Over the past six months, equity REITs have underperformed the S&P 500 by nearly 14 percentage points, mainly thanks to rising interest rates.

This has created some pretty compelling bargains in the real-estate sector. One in particular that I bought more of recently was 3.8%-yielding Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), which in late February dipped below $100 per share for the first time since 2016 after weak results from a competitor spooked investors and caused all data-center REITs to plunge.

What Digital Realty Trust does

Digital Realty Trust is a real-estate investment trust that owns a large portfolio of 203 data centers in the U.S. as well as in international markets. The company’s data centers contain more than 32 million square feet of rentable space, which is leased to more than 2,300 customers.

    Kohl’s Co. (NYSE:KSS) – Investment analysts at Jefferies Financial Group upped their Q2 2020 earnings per share (EPS) estimates for shares of Kohl’s in a report issued on Tuesday, March 5th. Jefferies Financial Group analyst R. Konik now expects that the company will post earnings of $1.90 per share for the quarter, up from their prior estimate of $1.86. Jefferies Financial Group also issued estimates for Kohl’s’ Q3 2020 earnings at $1.04 EPS, Q4 2020 earnings at $2.48 EPS, FY2020 earnings at $6.10 EPS and FY2021 earnings at $6.45 EPS.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    A few years ago, Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) management determined that many of the department store chain’s stores were too big. In many cases, Kohl’s was filling these stores with more inventory than was necessary to meet demand, just so the stores wouldn’t look empty. That excess inventory led to margin-sapping clearance discounts at the end of each season.

After making many acquisitions over the past few decades to cover millions of Americans’ health insurance, UnitedHealth is also quite well-known to retirees for its Medicare Supplement Plans offered through AARP.

It also now is more targeted as a health insurer with an easier model to understand than some of its peers, which are merging into health care conglomerates of sorts.

    In PMT, Honeywell’s process-solutions rival Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) continues to report strong results. But whereas Emerson’s CEO David Farr is expecting to benefit from relatively stronger LNG (liquefied natural gas) spending in the current cycle, Honeywell’s LNG revenue accounts for just 5% of its PMT sales, and it’s more heavily exposed to petrochemical and refining spending.

A sideways 2018 following a huge rally off the lows

Foot Locker (FL) has seen its shares plummet and soar at various different times in the past couple of years. The chain, which was once a top-tier retail stock that could do no wrong, has fallen on relatively hard times with traffic and margins. Investors mercilessly punished the stock last year as a result and shares became almost unbelievably cheap. We’re well off the lows from last year as the stock has almost doubled since the nadir in November, but even so, Foot Locker is a long way from its former highs. The company’s Q2 report looks to me like further progress towards an eventual return to its highs in the $70s and despite the huge rally off the lows from last year, I still like Foot Locker.

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

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.

Top Cheap Stocks To Buy For 2019

“Real estate is an imperishable asset ever increasing in value. It is the most solid security that human ingenuity has devised.” — Russell Sage

Walt Disney (1901-66), the singular visionary genius who — more than anyone — transformed the business of entertainment in the 20th century, had legions of admirers over the decades. Among them is Steve Wynn, founder, CEO and guiding mastermind of his eponymous casino empire. In both public and private statements, Wynn has pointed to Disney’s core insight into the fine art of delighting consumers as what drives the management culture of his company until this day.

But for all his prescient brilliance, Disney did not fully apprehend the shower of millions his Disneyland theme park would have on the properties surrounding the Anaheim project. Neither did the very savvy Harrison Price of the Stamford Research Institute, who Disney commissioned to pick out the best possible location for his first theme park.

He acquired 160 acres of orange groves and walnut trees in the then-sleepy Orange County suburb of Anaheim, believing it would provide a huge enough footprint upon which to build his dream. And it did. What he didn’t really grasp was that the nearby land could still be picked up cheap if you were either a speculator or a motel company foreseeing more than day-trippers visiting the park. As a result, no sooner than Disneyland opened in July 1955 was the area blotted with construction projects for motels, hotels, restaurants and shopping centers whose primary claim to financial viability sprung from their proximity to Disneyland. Walt watched the parasite property owners grow rich and vowed never to repeat the mistake. And he didn’t.

Better still, 96% of its rental income is shielded from e-commerce threats.

Then, it’s also come out this week that Wendy’s (NASDAQ:WEN) and Papa John’s, before all of this stuff came up over the past couple of months, they’re actually in talks to have some sort of merger. Going forward, if you’re the board of directors at Papa John’s, I think you have to really consider that possibility. Maybe the best step forward for the company is to look for a merger or a sale, because, man, this seems like a train wreck that keeps accelerating. When you have Schnatter on the board, he would have to be in favor of a buyout or a merger for it to go through.

    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more.

The beauty retailing segment has certainly been hot in recent quarters as major players like Ulta continue to soar.

The company’s full-year results and guidance would certainly suggest the good times will continue to roll for SBH so to my eye, the stock looks cheap here at just 14.4 times forward earnings.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    It’s been a long time since the pessimism has been this thick when it comes to Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI), judging by the number of people betting against the satellite radio provider.

    Pandora seemed to be left for dead last summer. Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI) abandoned plans to acquire Pandora, settling for a more cost-effective minority stake in the streaming platform. With Sirius XM content to ride shotgun instead of taking the wheel and listener numbers languishing, investors started dumping the stock through the latter half of last year.

    Two of the hottest media distributor stocks in recent years are joining forces for a comedy radio channel.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Shares of Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) hit a new 12-year high of $7.08 this week, and in terms of market cap the satellite radio provider has never been as valuable as it is right now. The market darling hasn’t traded this high since late 2005, and it’s fair to say that this was an entirely different company back then. Sirius had yet to merge with XM. The share count was substantially lower.

We went there for breakfast and my kids just could not get enough of the biscuits and the Timbits, which are the equivalent of Munchkins. My son has his Robinhood account now, so he’s always on the lookout for stocks to buy. He said, “Can I buy Tim Hortons stock?” And I said, “Yes you can.” And actually, I told him a story. A long time ago, when I was in college, I actually bought Wendy’s (NASDAQ:WEN) stock on the thesis that Baja Fresh, which they owned at the time, was the next hot concept, and way better than Chipotle. Now, you fast forward a couple of years, Baja Fresh basically was worthless to Wendy’s. Chipotle had gone on to be the winner in the burrito space. Obviously since reverted to the mean. But, made a lot of money on Wendy’s because of Tim Horton’s. They also own Tim Hortons, and Tim Hortons is growing crazy for them, they’re growing all across Canada and the U.S.

There was worry that perhaps the recent market turmoil and fears of a possible trade war could dampen some S&P 500 firms’ expectations for what the near future might bring. It’s less than a week since earnings began and guidance could still represent a speed bump in coming weeks, but so far it hasn’t been a problem. For instance, UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) raised fiscal year guidance Tuesday, and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) raised its revenue guidance. In other signs of general good cheer, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) raised its quarterly dividend, while Netflix (NFLX) reported big gains in subscriber growth. It’s still really early and things could change, but maybe some of those guidance fears could have been, shall we say, misguided?

    The company’s properties are freestanding, not located in malls or shopping centers (which means better margins, lower rent volatility and less dependence on imperiled anchors). Better still, 96% of its rental income is shielded from e-commerce threats. After all, gas stations, drug stores and fast-food chains like Wendy’s (Nasdaq: WEN) don’t compete with Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN).

    Hanson: Dinosaur bones. Fossils. It wasn’t Jurassic Park. But it’s neat, if you go, you can hike on these trails and you can see the fossils being exposed. It’s neat, it’s really cool. The kids liked it. If you go to Canada, one thing that’s ubiquitous in Canada, Tim Hortons. We went there for breakfast and my kids just could not get enough of the biscuits and the Timbits, which are the equivalent of Munchkins. My son has his Robinhood account now, so he’s always on the lookout for stocks to buy. He said, “Can I buy Tim Hortons stock?” And I said, “Yes you can.” And actually, I told him a story. A long time ago, when I was in college, I actually bought Wendy’s (NASDAQ:WEN) stock on the thesis that Baja Fresh, which they owned at the time, was the next hot concept, and way better than Chipotle. Now, you fast forward a couple of years, Baja Fresh basically was worthless to Wendy’s. Chipotle had gone on to be the winner in the burrito space. Obviously since reverted to the mean. But, made a lot of money on Wendy’s because of Tim Horton’s. They also own Tim Hortons, and Tim Hortons is growing crazy for them, they’re growing all across Canada and the U.S.

    Shares of Sirius XM Holidngs Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI) tumbled today after the market turned sour on its acquisition of Pandora Media (NYSE:P).

Sirius stock closed down 10.3%, while Pandora finished down 1.1% after trading as a high as 10.2% earlier as its value is now linked to Sirius XM’s in the all-stock deal. Liberty Media, the majority shareholder of Sirius XM, saw its tracking stocks, Liberty Sirius XM Group Series A (NASDAQ:LSXMA) and Series C (NASDAQ:LSXMK), fall 9.3% and 9.5%, respectively.

Gasoline right at the highway exit is usually cheapest. Drive a few miles toward town and you might see a 10 cent a gallon jump. Ever wonder why?

If you said “competition,” go to the head of the class. Gas stations tend to cluster around knots of highway traffic. The driver near empty on a country lane has to gas up immediately or take the risk of running dry miles from the next fill-up.

Top Cheap Stocks To Watch Right Now: Sirius XM Radio Inc.(SIRI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    When Sirius and XM merged in 2008 to become Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:SIRI), the combined company still filled a need. It offered depth and niche choices in music that conventional radio did not. In addition, the service had talk offerings led by Howard Stern that were unlike anything found on terrestrial radio, and an impressive array of sports broadcasting rights.

Let’s take a closer look at these seven stocks trading for $7 or less.

    Remember, Apple (AAPL) had run because its service-revenue stream made the tech giant part of an elite group of companies. It joined Costco (COST) , Netflix (NFLX) , and SiriusXM (SIRI) , Spotify (SPOT) and Amazon (AMZN) (home of Amazon Prime) as companies that charge you recurring fees that you don’t seem to notice or care about. So, Apple’s stock no longer represents the tug to the group, and each company has to develop a separate power base away from Cupertino.

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.
