Hot Small Cap Stocks To Own Right Now

Following stocks that have a long term product (like uranium, for example) is, like golf, an exercise in emotional management. It’s frustrating when no news is forthcoming, or when the time between investment and return moves at a glacial pace. Sometimes it’s easier to become enamored of stocks that deliver immediate information, or satisfaction, than it is to sit quietly on the sidelines and trust your instincts. This past week, however, mining companies that are drilling in the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan started releasing news about their winter drilling results. And even though Small Cap Network featured stock Azincourt Uranium (OTC: AZURF, TSXV: AAZ.V) has yet to release any news, the stock has has a nice week, closing up 6.67% on Friday.

Uranium was discovered in the Athabasca Basin in the 1940s. Today, more than half of the world’s uranium production comes from just 10 mines. Canada is the second largest uranium producer in the world, and the Athabasca Basin is home to the world’s largest high-grade uranium mine. Azincourt’s primary property is the Patterson Lake North site, which is part of the Athabasca Basin. The Patterson Lake North property lies adjacent and to the north of the Patterson Lake South property, owned by Fission Uranium Corp. (OTC: FCUUF, TSX-V:FCU). In addition to being scenic, Patterson Lake is Canada’s uranium gold mine. It’s sometimes called the Persian Gulf of Uranium. Any company seriously in the uranium business is in the Athabasca Basin, and Azincourt Uranium has some very important neighbors, including Cameco, UEX Corporation, NexGen Energy, and Denison Mines.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

Sometimes I discuss stocks which sit out of my comfort zone, simply because they have a few characteristics which could be of interest to any kind of investor but don’t necessarily fit my portfolio. For example a blue chip stock which has features of positive capital gains combined with interesting dividend. In this case I am talking about Accenture (NYSE:ACN). A little bit more than a year ago, I covered this enormous IT consultant on Seeking Alpha.

I concluded that the firm is sometimes made fun of in the internet for its reputation to no surprise, but has excellent financial figures and a solid backlog. I thought based on current figures it would see another positive year in 2016 and the firm did not disappoint:

    Investors were expecting good news from Target (NYSE:TGT) in its second-quarter earnings report.

And Target’s management team said in late May that its recent customer traffic trend — the best rate the retailer had managed in a decade — had strengthened further into the first few weeks of the new quarter.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    There are two main reasons for this. For one, the company invests in properties occupied by tenants that have little to worry about from recessions, or from the e-commerce headwinds that are wreaking havoc in many areas of retail. Just to name a couple of examples from Realty Income’s top tenants, Walgreens (NASDAQ: WBA) sells things people need in good times and bad. Walmart (NYSE: WMT) offers bargains that online retailers have a tough time matching, and its low prices actually tend to help during recessions.

  • [By Anders Bylund, Leo Sun, and Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    The e-commerce platform acts a middleman, taking a small percentage of the value of each sale that occurs on its marketplace. That operating model differs from that of integrated giants like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), which own massive warehouses and shell out big money to build extensive fulfillment infrastructures.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Boeing Co.’s (NYSE: BA) share price added about 2.8% last week to maintain its position as the best performing among the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). Shares gained $8.04 last week to boost the year-to-date gain to nearly 89%.

Of the three other stocks closest to Boeing’s yearly gain, Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) rose by about 1.9% to a gain of over 58% for the year, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) added about 2.7% to close the week up just over 50% for the year to date and Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) tacked on 1.8% to bring its annual gain to nearly 46%.

Last week was a busy one for Boeing, at least for its public affairs staff. The company raised its dividend, approved a new share buyback program, lost a military jet order to Canada, lost a multibillion passenger jet order to arch-rival Airbus and then read the news about the shake-up at the top of its European competitor.

As expected, Boeing lifted its dividend following Monday’s board of directors meeting. The 20% increase, from $5.68 to $6.84 annually per share, was accompanied by a new share repurchase plan valued at $18 billion. The company posted a new 52-week high on Tuesday.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019: Cray Inc(CRAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Gardner:There’sa lot of biotech and some computer companies. We once visited the Cray Corporation (NASDAQ:CRAY), which was one of the early supercomputer companies.Seymour Cray was one of the pioneers of supercomputing. If you look up Cray Computers, they were the supercomputers back in the 80s, when computers were a lot bigger than they are today, andprobably slower, but they were super back then. Anyway,that was a Minneapolis company I once visited. Our dad used to take us, occasionally, on trips. We’d just drop by corporate headquarters and talk to an investor relations person. That was one of the times I did that. Itwasn’t like I did it dozens of times. We did maybe five or six times. ButI’ll always remember Cray Computer.
