Hot Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM) provides investors a unique way to invest in gold and silver without taking on the day-to-day risks of mining. That’s a key benefit of the precious metals streaming business model. However, this doesn’t mean you get to avoid all of the risks of mining, and Wheaton’s investment in this Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX) mine is the perfect example of what can go wrong. Here’s a quick rundown on why Wheaton’s time might be running out on this large mine investment.

Streaming vs mining

Wheaton is a streaming and royalty company. Essentially that means it provides miners cash up front for the right to buy silver and gold at reduced rates in the future. Streaming deals are generally tied to a specific mine investment, often one in the development stage. Miners use the cash to build such mines, or to expand existing assets or pay down debt, and Wheaton gets to benefit from locked-in low prices for the gold and silver it buys, which provides it with wide margins in both good markets and bad.

    Logitech International (NASDAQ:LOGI) has been in good hands under CEO Bracken Darrell. In 2013, he took over the reins of a company that had been struggling to grow in a flatlining PC market. He instilled a new culture of design and teamwork, with a focus on making cutting-edge computer peripherals (mice, keyboards, and headsets) and conference room cameras — two areas where it’s seeing the most growth right now.

What happened

Shares ofNike Inc(NYSE:NKE) dropped around 19% throughout 2016, according to data provided byS&P Global Market Intelligence,making it the worst-performing stock in the Dow during the year. The behemoth athletic wear maker has had difficulty during the year with slowing sales growth and declining margins — but mostly it struggled to regain positive sentiment from Wall Street for the impressive moves it’s been making.

So what

In the company’s fiscal Q2 earnings released on Dec. 20, Nike announced sales growth of 6% year over year and earnings up 11%. Both metrics failed to help alleviate worries on Wall Street throughout 2016 that the company’s future sales and earnings might not have growth catalysts to drive higher returns. Two of the biggest concerns throughout the year have been decreasing gross margin and slowing futures order sales — though the company has noted that futures orders don’t accurately reflect sales potential because they don’t include direct-to-consumer sales estimates. This led Nike to announce in fiscal Q1 that it would stop reporting futures orders figures going forward.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Warren Buffett famously told investors to be “fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” Dedicated followers of that mantra would probably dismiss Chinese online media giant SINA (NASDAQ:SINA) — which rallied 120% over the past 12 months to a six-year high — as a “greedy” play.

  • [By Shanthi Rexaline]

    SINA Corp (NASDAQ: SINA), which has a stake in Weibo, also tumbled.

    Weibo confirmed that the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China or SAPPRFT has ordered local authorities to take measures to suspend audio and video services of some internet companies.

    Weibo issued a press release later in the day saying it would cooperate with the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television.

The lack of popular apps is why Microsofts (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows App store and Lumia smartphones never took off. Microsoft even released free conversion tools for Android and iOS developers to port their apps to the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), but it was all in vain. Microsofts Project Astoria to port Android apps to UWP was canceled. I also dont know anybody thats using the free Widows Bridge for iOS tool to convert iPhone/iPad games to the UWP platform.

The Project Centennial tool to convert Win32 apps to the UWP format is also ignored by software giants like Adobe (NASDAQ:ADBE) and Autodesk (NASDAQ:ADSK). If software developers found Project Centennial capable, they would have ported all their industry-standard software products to the UWP platform. Until now, you cannot find an Adobe Creative Cloud software program on Microsofts Windows UWP-only App Store. Microsoft’s own Office 2016 and Visio are also unavailable as Windows App Store.

The software developers community does not have much enthusiasm for the UWP platform. Thankfully, the companys new tactics to improve its Windows App Store is to rebrand it to Microsoft Store and host Progressive Web Apps (PWA). Instead of compelling developers to code for UWP, Microsoft compromised and is now open to Progressive Web Apps. A PWA is a software program coded with typical web design technologies like HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, but it can run like a native app on mobile devices.

Last week, women’s clothing retailer The Limited announced it was closing down all of its stores. It’s yet another casualty in the war on shopping malls and highlights the further transition of clothing retail to “fast fashion” and online formatting. It has been an ominous year for brick-and-mortar stores, but another one down could be good news for the survivors.

    All is not lost for retail, however. Cramer continued to recommend the closeout and discount chains like TJX Stores (TJX) , Ollie’s Bargain Outlet (OLLI) and Burlington Stores (BURL) .
