Top 5 Cheap Stocks To Buy For 2019

Last week Renewable Energy & Power, Inc. (OTC PINK : RBNW ), a diversified corporation with markets in energy-saving technologies of LED lighting, solar and wind energy, announced a large San Francisco Bay Area electronic assembly corporation has approved the installation of 1,275 LED lights for their entire main campus.

This is the third such announcement in as many months by the Las Vegas based company. It got me thinking about what the company does and how LED lighting can impact a business’ bottom line as much as it contributes to reducing emissions and the effects of global warming. But what about LED lights in RBNW’s backyard? How much of the Vegas Strip is LED? Well, it turns out, quite a bit.

Over a year ago three of Nevada’s largest casino companies – MGM Resorts, Wynn, and Las Vegas Sands – announced plans to source renewable energy for their hotels, a move driven both by increasing demand for responsible energy use from the companies that rent their conference halls, and a surplus of cheap power from solar farms in Nevada and California. MGM Resorts had already implemented an ambitious energy conservation effort by replacing 1.3 million light bulbs in its properties with LEDs.

As IT spending at companies has shifted to the cloud, Big Blue has scrambled to shed old assets and invest in new technologies to pave the way for growth. But the damage has been done: Over the last five years, shares of IBM have badly trailed the broader market, down 24% compared to the S&P 500 return of 51%.

    Keith Noonan (IBM): Whether or not concerns that a significant correction is on the horizon for overheated tech stocks prove to be correct, it’s probably not a bad idea to look at some more modestly priced offerings in the sector. IBM fits the bill, trading at just 10.5 times this year’s expected earnings and offering a 4.3% dividend yield. Those metrics look appealing in light of the company’s progress on its turnaround initiative.

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.
