Top 10 Medical Stocks To Invest In 2019

Ancestry.com, the website better known for helping users create family trees, find distant family members and capture suspected serial killers, made a lot of customers angry last week.

Ancestry, which also is in the business of DNA testing, allows users to send a vial of saliva to the company and receive in return a detailed genetic portfolio, including risk for some diseases and estimates of their ethnic ancestry.

Neither the medical nor the heritage information are guaranteed to be 100 percent accurate, but as the science improves, so does the quality of the results. At least, that’s what Ancestry insists.

After Ancestry rolled out a new update to its ethnicity estimate system last week, users noticed dramatic changes in their ethnic profiles – some of which is inaccurate, customers say.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Invest In 2019: Noble Midstream Partners LP (NBLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) currently yields an eye-catching 9%. However, as alluring as that payout might seem, it’s not worth considering right now because of the company’s weaker financial profile. That’s why investors should forget about Buckeye Partners’ high-yielding dividend and instead examine the offerings of fellow energy infrastructure companies EnLink Midstream (NYSE:ENLC), Noble Midstream (NYSE:NBLX), and Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE). Each pays a similarly high-yielding dividend that they back with stronger financials metrics and expect to increase at a healthy rate in 2019 and beyond.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Because of those factors, income investors might want to forget about Holly Energy Partners and consider Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM) or Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) instead, since they have stronger financial profiles and much more visible growth.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The best dividend growth stocks have long histories of increasing their dividends once each year. However, a small handful of companies do even better than that by raising their payouts every single quarter like clockwork. Three such income-growth gems are Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP), and Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX).

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) was downgraded by equities researchers at Wells Fargo & Co from an “outperform” rating to a “market perform” rating in a research report issued on Monday, The Fly reports.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) burst on the scene in 2017, delivering stellar outperformance in its rookie year as a public company. Driving that surge was the company’s ability to capture several needle-moving opportunities, which positioned it for fast-paced growth for years to come. The master limited partnership (MLP) has continued enhancing its growth prospects this year, which puts it in a position to grow cash flow at an even faster pace.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Noble Midstream (NYSE:NBLX) has a bold plan to grow its already impressive 7.4%-yielding distribution to investors by 20% per year all the way through 2022, which is one of the fastest rates in the midstream sector. Driving that growth would be the expansion of the company’s oil and gas gathering system to support the anticipated increase in production from customers like its parent, Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL).
