Hot Medical Stocks To Own Right Now

Cooper Companies (NYSE:COO) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a research note issued on Friday. The firm currently has a $317.00 price target on the medical device company’s stock. Zacks Investment Research‘s price objective points to a potential upside of 10.03% from the stock’s previous close.

According to Zacks, “Cooper Companies exited the fiscal first quarter on a strong note, issuing a solid guidance for fiscal 2019. Also, the company saw solid gains from its core CVI unit, which performed impressively in the United States, the EMEA and the Asia Pacific. These apart, Cooper Companies continues to gain from the PARAGARD acquisition, which has been consistently driving CSI’s performance. Management is also optimistic about the Clarity, MyDay and Biofinity suite of products. The company’s portfolio of daily silicone hydrogel lenses makes it one of the stalwarts in the soft contact lens market. The company outperformed its industry in a year’s time. On the flip side, Cooper Companies’ soft genomics business in recent past is concerning. Gross margin at CVI unit was below management’s expectations. Moreover, a series of acquisitions pose significant integration risks. Stiff competition in the MedTech space is a woe.”

Don’t expect Ford stock to drive higher, some analysts say. 

Ford Motor Co. (F) is preparing for a scaled deployment of its Autonomous Vehicle program in 2021 but as the business is not making money currently, the Dearborn, Mich.-based automaker’s current cost-cutting plans may not be enough to earn Ford a higher earnings multiple, according to Piper Jaffray & Co.

Ford has been trimming its product portfolio and doubling down on its most profitable segments. The company is also committed to delivering improvements in China and other underperforming global markets, Piper Jaffray analysts noted.

“We appreciate the focus on ‘fitness,’ as well as Ford’s newfound willingness to cull less profitable platform,” Piper Jaffray analysts Alexander Potter and Winnie Dong wrote in a May 15 research note.

    Tuesday saw a mixed session on Wall Street, with various market benchmarks moving in different directions. Investors seemed reasonably neutral about events in Singapore, where leaders from the U.S. and North Korea met and came to some minor agreements that viewed in the most favorable light could provide a road map for future negotiations. Yet investors seem more concerned about what the Federal Reserve’s interest rate setting board might do later in the week, with a two-day meeting starting today to consider whether further rate increases are warranted. Even with the relatively flat performance from the market, some companies had good news that sent their shares sharply higher. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE), and Lands’ End (NASDAQ:LE) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

It is a very common tactic for investors to put their money alongside those of the great people in the field. This is one reason why Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) remains a popular investment to this day. In fact, I have something of a fondness for this strategy myself as I published an article to this site last year suggesting an investment alongside the legendary Rothschild banking family. In this article, I will discuss a way to invest alongside another family that has managed to preserve and grow their wealth for more than two centuries. That family is Sweden’s Wallenberg family, who manage a considerable portion of their wealth through a company known as Investor AB (OTCPK:IVSXF).

About the Wallenberg Family and Investor AB

The Wallenberg family is one of the wealthiest and most prominent in Sweden. The family is widely considered to have been founded by Jakob Persson Wallberg (1699-1758) during his second marriage, the descendants of which called themselves Wallenberg. In 1856, one of Jakob’s descendants, André Oscar Wallenberg, founded the predecessor to Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (OTC:SVKAF), one of the largest financial services companies in Scandinavia.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

Main thesis

I believe that Tuesday Morning (NASDAQ: TUES) is a potential turnaround situation with high upside and limited downside.

Business

According to their 10k,

We are a true closeout retailer, selling high-quality products at prices below those found in boutique, specialty and department stores. Our customers come to us for an ever-changing, exceptional assortment of brand names at great prices. Basically, they purchase items at a very low price from different sources and they sell it below retail.

What makes it interesting

Niche that is likely to be undisturbed by the ecommerce disruption right now Little debt ($30 million from accessing credit facility) with continued access to capital markets Increasing revenue despite industry headwinds, which means that the problem is likely to be internal. Insider buy in Concrete turnaround plan that could work (some of them are already working)

What I think the rest of the market missed

Only 1 analyst covering (according to yahoo finance) Niche presence in a market filled with big names Overall decrease in interest in the traditional brick and mortar retail sector Boring niche with little or no growth
