Hot Bank Stocks To Invest In 2019

The last few years have been absolutely brutal for Ensco (NYSE:ESV) and every other offshore oil rig company. As oil prices started to crash back in 2014, companies stopped renting rigs for exploration and development in order to conserve cash. To make matters worse, rig companies had spent billions on expanding their fleets in the years before this.

It left all of them with too many rigs, not enough customers, and uncomfortably large debt levels that led to sinking stock prices and a couple of high-profile bankruptcies.

Now that oil prices are on the mend and oil producers are starting to open their wallets again, some investors might be wondering if it is time to take another look at Ensco. After all, the company’s stock trades for a dirt cheap price-to-tangible-book-value of 0.32. So let’s go through Ensco’s numbers and gauge the way the wind is blowing for the offshore industry to get a handle on whether this stock is a buy or not.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) is leading a busy day of earnings reports on Tuesday. Shares are off 0.4% after the firm despite reporting a 40% year-over-year jump in profits and stronger-than-expected revenue. The firm reported earnings per share (EPS) of $5.98 on top of $9.40 billion in revenue. The Wall Street giant was expected to report EPS of $4.67 on top of $8.71 billion in revenue. The investment bank’s first six months of 2018 were its strongest in nine years. The stock slipped after the company announced that president David Solomon will be replacing CEO Lloyd Blankfein when he steps down from his role. Blankfein has been CEO for 12 years. It’s fair to say that Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) went to the dogs on Monday. The company has extended its Prime Day promotion through 3 a.m. on Wednesday. The announcement came after the firm suffered significant outages during the start of the event on Monday afternoon. Rather than get access to deals, many customers were met with pictures of dogs, the firm’s standard error page. Finally, pay close attention to events on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee will question leaders of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) about how they store and filter user content. Last year, the Senate and House of Representatives slammed the companies for their roles in and responses to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Oracle gained 6.2% to $45.73 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.2% to 2,381.38.

Oracle’s top-notch earnings and guidance earned it a downgrade to Buy from Strong Buy from CFRA’s Scott Kessler:

We raise our 12-month target by $4 to $51. Peers have a median forward P/E of 19.5X and P/E-to-growth of 2.3. Using these multiples results in our target. We raise our EPS estimates for FY 17 (May) by $0.08 to $2.64 and FY 18 by $0.02 to $2.83, and set FY 19′s at $3.09. ORCL posts Feb-Q non-GAAP EPS of $0.69 vs. $0.64, $0.07 over our estimate. Sales rose 2%, with a 62% increase in cloud revenues, accounting for 13% of total sales. ORCL raises its dividend by 27% and has an implied yield of 1.6%. After recent appreciation, we see ORCL as an attractive, but not a compelling value.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

One of the most important lessons I learned during my days in the Army was the KISS principle: Keep it simple, stupid.

Outside of the military, one of the greatest minds of all time believed in the KISS philosophy, but Albert Einstein expressed the idea in more poetic terms: “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

—Recommended Link— What Would YOU Do With An Extra $3,080 Every Month For The Rest Of Your Life?
Never worry about cash again. Be free to live how YOU want… go on a lavish vacation… or build up a college fund for the grandkids — it’s up to you. Get your share here…

I bring that same mindset to investment analysis. I want every process to be as simple as possible, but not so simple that I’m leaving out anything important. While I have spent a great deal of time studying complex investment techniques, what I discovered is that the KISS principle applies in investment analysis as well as it did in the military.

Three that check all three boxes areTerraForm Power Inc.(NASDAQ:TERP),CareTrust REIT Inc.(NASDAQ:CTRE), andStarbucks Corporation(NASDAQ:SBUX).

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

Welcome to “Three Things in Biotech You Should Learn Today,” a digest of all things biotech. Investors in this field are always looking toward picking the one or two big winners before moving on, but this often leaves them a bit myopic with respect to other, actionable developments. I want to try and help you find the biggest bites every day that can add to your personal due diligence.

For volume 3, we’re going to step outside the realm of oncology for a bit to cover some salient findings and releases from big biotechs. There has been some setback and some other promise for numerous candidates in different disease areas.

Botox might fix your face, but it doesn’t appear to help with depression

Major depressive disorder is a notoriously difficult disease to treat, and the role it play on patient burden has been increasing consistently over the past several decades. As such, it is important to continue exploring safe, effective treatments for depression.

If you’re like me, then seeing news of Botox being explored for depression is a bit of a surprise. However, the leading rationale is quite interesting. Facial muscles play a role in feedback with emotion. Muscles involuntarily contract when experiencing positive or negative emotions, and it has been shown that depression can correlate with subtle facial responses to different images. Thus it has been hypothesized that arrest of certain muscles can provide the reverse effect. Initial observations of efficacy for Botox treatment in depression may also be due to patients’ improved self-perception.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: SanDisk Corporation(SNDK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Early on Friday, analysts at RBC Capital boosted the near-term estimates on SanDisk Corporation (SNDK), a manufacturer of data storage products, because a fire at SK Hynix’s factory should lead to favorable pricing over the next two quarters.

    “We see a favorable pricing environment as a result of SK Hynix’s fire, which threatens to curtail NAND output as the company likely re-purposes production back toward DRAM, resulting in lower than expected incremental NAND wafers vs. company’s plan of 170K/WPM,” RBC Capital analyst Freedman said. “Consequently, we see stronger pricing through EoY before SK Hynix ramps NAND toward normalized prod’t levels as DRAM resources are restored/replaced.”

    The analysts maintain an “Outperform” rating on SDNK and still see shares reaching $76. This price target suggests a 26% upside to the stock’s Thursday closing price of $60.08. Furthermore, they boosted SanDisk’s 2013 EPS estimates from $4.82 to $4.95.

    SanDisk shares were up a fraction during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 38.11% year-to-date.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: Applied Materials, Inc.(AMAT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    As the term implies, a 15% trailing stop-loss “trails” the price of the stock. So as the price moves up, so should your stop-loss. Let’s look at Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT) as an example. On September 29, 2017, the stock closed at a new high of $52.09. That means the 15% trailing stop-loss would have been $44.28 (52.09 x .15 = 7.81; 52.09 – 7.81 = 44.28). Had the stock gone on to close below $44.28 we would have sold the next trading day.

    The top management had guided revenues for Q3 to be in the range of $9.3-9.4 billion while EPS outlook was between 75 and 80 cents per share. As usual, the holiday quarter guidance will be crucialfor Best Buy stock as well. Investors could be expecting Best buy to crush Wall Street earnings estimates as it has beaten the high end of the street estimates in 7 out of the last 8 quarters. The earnings whisper number of 84 cents per share also hints towards that. Thefirm online sales growth has contributed immensely to the Best Buy’s earnings growth which has reflected in the stock’s gain this year, and again it would be under focus today.

    Can Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) stock still rise higher post-earnings after more than 70% YTD gains?

    The equipment manufacturing company Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT) is the third major earnings for the day, which has its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings release scheduled after the market close. Applied Materials stock, also happens to bepart of our top tech stocks to buy list which have outperformed the Nasdaq Composite by over 159%.

There’s a ceiling at $3.27 that needs to be cleared, but we fear waiting on that to happen because once it does, GVP shares could be catapulted to a price we don’t want to chase.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2018

Growth versus value investing is one of the major debates in the investment world.  Growth stocks seem to have outperformed their value counterparts over the past few years. But the winning streak of growth investing took a hit this year with value stocks regaining lost glory.

It is currently speculated that value investing will likely continue its winning run in the upcoming years. Hence, adding potential stocks to one’s portfolio might prove to be an ideal option in the current scenario.

Value vs. Growth Investing: Long-Drawn Debate

Value investors seek to invest in stocks that are believed to be trading at a discounted value. Investors look for favorable value ratios including low price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-book value (P/B) ratios to identify potential value stocks. While a significant number of these stocks are also expected to come with solid dividend payments, these stocks are also expected to moderate growth prospects.

Well, the stock has since come off again trading all the way back down to under $16 per share back in August of last year, before finding its way back up above $18 just yesterday. The context here is two-fold. First, the valuation metrics for GLW are once again suggesting another undervalued opportunity for a Company that is the clear leader in specialty glass and ceramics.

    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.
