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.

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.

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    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?

Top Insurance Stocks To Invest In 2019

Cigna Corp. confirmed that its proposed $54 billion acquisition of Express Scripts Holding Co. will be reviewed by the U.S. Department of Justice, which has raised the bar for approving deals that don’t combine direct competitors.

The health insurer has been telling investors since at least early April about the review, but hadn’t made a public statement until late Wednesday. Analysts at Credit Suisse sent an alert to clients on April 5, saying Cigna Chief Executive Officer David Cordani told investors during an event in Europe that the deal would be looked at by the Justice Department.

Cigna agreed in March to acquire Express Scripts, a pharmacy-benefits manager, wagering that the combination can reduce costs and improve benefits for Americans by simplifying the health-care supply chain. CVS Health Corp. separately struck a $68 billion deal for Aetna Inc., a transaction that’s also facing Justice Department review.

Both deals are so-called vertical transactions that combine companies operating in different parts of the same industry: health insurance and pharmacy benefit management. For years, such mergers have been approved by antitrust enforcers with conditions on how the firms conduct business in order to remedy any harm to competition from the tie-ups.

Since Last Time

I have taken a long break since I last wrote on my favorite holding, Career Education Corporation (CECO). Every article I’ve written has received, at best, a lukewarm response. Few seem interested, least of which Wall Street. On the last two earnings calls, no analysts were present. The company continues to get no serious research; almost nobody but myself actually writes anything publicly on it.

Despite that, the stock is up significantly over its peers, over the market as a whole, remains well undervalued, and should continue trending higher in the near term. To put a few numbers to this. Since I began following the company five years ago, Career Education has performed 4x better than the Dow, 2.5x better than the NASDAQ (which itself has been nothing short of hot), and as for its other peers’ five-year performance. See chart.

CECO ATGE STRA CPLA BPI APEI 354% 49% 91% 192% -6% -23%

And it is not as if analysts don’t follow the education space. Every one of these other firms gets significant interest from Wall Street analysts both big and small. Nor is it that Career Education is too small to follow. In fact, it is one of the biggest companies in the space.

    Streaming giant Netflix (NFLX) is gearing up for its earnings results on April 16. It’s hard to forget the mind-blowing performance the stock put in with its fourth-quarter earnings reports in January. Subscriber additions blew past the expected growth targets both internationally and in the U.S. Now investors are wondering- is a repeat performance possible?

Barclays analyst Thomas Driscoll and team explain why they cut Range Resources (RRC) to Underweight from Equal Weight:

Les Stone/Reuters

Range shares have performed very well this year despite severe financial challenges. While the company has a deep inventory of attractive drilling locations, it faces cost structure challenges and it has a levered balance sheet. We are lowering our price target 11% to $24 and downgrading our rating to Underweight.

Cash flow before hedges – is negative at strip prices. Range is well hedged for 16, but we estimate 16 cash flow would be negative $(100) million at strip prices if we were to exclude greater than $400 mm of potential 16 hedge gains. Investors should be cautious when estimates include significant hedge gains.

Ranges multiple may be pressured as growth slows. Range grew 20-25%/year over the past 3 years and the shares enjoy a 40-45% premium multiple. We forecast 2% growth this year and 8% next year, growth rates that benefit from our above strip gas forecast (we are using $2.50 vs. a strip average price of +/-$2.00) and ~$285 mm of hedge gains. Should the premium multiple disappear, the shares could fall nearly 50% to $17 per share. Our current price target assumes the company will continue to trade at a sharp premium as investors await a gas-price rebound.

Every night in 1995, I would deposit money overnight in a different currency…   Sounds strange, I realize.   But back then, as the vice president of a global mutual fund, one of my jobs was to execute our fund's trades.   Once our U.S. trading day was done, we wanted our money to work for us overnight as well. We might put our money into French francs, German marks, or somewhere else – just for the night.   We would find the safest country that was paying the highest interest rate. And we would put our money there overnight. No kidding.   As I'll explain today, what we were doing wasn't anything special…   Big companies like German automaker Volkswagen and Japanese automaker Honda (and thousands of other companies) have cash-management departments that do basically the same thing – on a much larger scale.

    It wasn’t just Marathon that got clipped as the eight worst-performing stocks in the S&P 500 came from the energy sector, including Murphy Oil (MUR), which fell 6.7% to $25.87, Devon Energy (DVN), which slid 6.5% to $40.72, and Chesapeake Energy (CHK), which stumbled 6.1% to $4.94. No surprise, then, that the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) slumped 2.6% to $69.65.

    Murphy USA (MUSA) first caught my attention after Southeastern Asset Management acquired a massive stake ($668mm) in its former parent company Murphy Oil Corporation (MUR) in Q1 2013. One thing about Murphy Oil Corporation I noticed after an initial glance through their 10-K and annual report was its ownership of a valuable fuel and convenience retailer segment with high ROIC, valuable real estate, low CAPEX requirements, and relatively decent growth prospects that was under-followed and whose underlying value was concealed by the parent company’s core production and exploration business.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018: Actuant Corporation(ATU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    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.
