    Compass Minerals International, Inc. (NYSE:CMP) is often listed as a miner, but the salt and fertilizer it produces are a bit different than what most investors think of when they hear the word “miner.” That makes Compass something of an odd duck and results in it being off of most investors’ radar screens. A tough 2017 is another net negative. That’s a shame, since it currently sports a yield of more than 4.4%, and the business outlook is improving. Here’s what investors are missing out on with this high-yield stock.

    Compcoin (CURRENCY:CMP) traded flat against the US dollar during the 24-hour period ending at 11:00 AM E.T. on October 13th. During the last seven days, Compcoin has traded up 12.6% against the US dollar. One Compcoin coin can currently be purchased for approximately $12.20 or 0.00130307 BTC on cryptocurrency exchanges. Compcoin has a total market cap of $0.00 and approximately $0.00 worth of Compcoin was traded on exchanges in the last 24 hours.

Best High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Kronos Worldwide Inc(KRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Timothy Green, Travis Hoium, and Maxx Chatsko]

    No matter your investing style, stocks that no one is paying attention to are often the best deals. Unpopular or lightly followed dividend stocks can become depressed in price, pushing up the yields and creating bargains for eagle-eyed investors. Three of our Motley Fool contributors think Vodafone (NASDAQ:VOD), Hanesbrands (NYSE:HBI), and Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) aren’t getting the attention they deserve. Here’s why these dividend stocks would make a great addition to your portfolio.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) issued its earnings results on Monday. The specialty chemicals company reported $0.21 earnings per share for the quarter, missing the Zacks’ consensus estimate of $0.22 by ($0.01), Fidelity Earnings reports. Kronos Worldwide had a return on equity of 33.77% and a net margin of 12.94%. The company had revenue of $349.40 million for the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $378.00 million.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Despite continued strength globally for the material, many titanium dioxide producers have seen their share prices drop by double digits since the beginning of the year. For instance, Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) stock has dropped by 19% in 2018 even though the business is cruising along right now. That has pushed its dividend yield to 3.4% — much higher than most peers.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) plunged on Wednesday after the company announced first-quarter 2018 results. The titanium dioxide manufacturer reported strong growth compared to the year-ago period thanks to the continued surge in selling prices. Revenue was up 16% and net income nearly doubled relative to the first quarter of 2017. How can Wall Street be displeased with that? 

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Shares of Kronos Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE:KRO) have been given a consensus recommendation of “Hold” by the six research firms that are presently covering the firm, MarketBeat.com reports. Two research analysts have rated the stock with a sell rating, two have issued a hold rating and two have issued a buy rating on the company. The average twelve-month price target among analysts that have updated their coverage on the stock in the last year is $25.33.

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains.

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

MedMen, a Los Angeles-based chain of marijuana dispensaries, can’t trade on Wall Street because cannabis is illegal in its home country.

So it listed in Canada.

MedMen started trading this week on the Canadian Securities Exchange, or CSE.

They’re not alone. US cannabis companies are heading north to list on stock exchanges in Canada, where there’s no federal ban on marijuana sales. Medical marijuana is legal there, and the country is in the process of legalizing recreational marijuana, too.

It’s a two-way street. Some Canadian cannabis companies have come south to list on Wall Street exchanges, because they’re not subject to the same restrictions that keep US pot growers away.

In the US, medical marijuana is legal in 30 states, and recreational is legal in 10. But US cannabis companies can’t list on US stock exchanges or even get basic financial services, because marijuana is prohibited by the federal government.

“There are no straight roads and there are no clear paths,” said MedMen CEO Adam Bierman.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

Make way for some waves. CVS Health (CVS) and Express Scripts (ESRX) have released their formulary exclusion list for 2017, which details which prescription drugs will not be covered by health plans.

Why do we care? Commercial payors have been showing signs of pushing back against high drugs costs, which is a huge concern for drug companies and their investors. The coverage list determines whether millions of privately insured individuals can easily use an insurance co-payment to buy their prescriptions. If a drug is excluded, it can dramatically hobble sales.

Thus, the formulary exclusion lists can be used as a tool by insurers and PBMs leverage you might say to negotiate with drug makers for better prices. Its also a double edged sword that can cost a PBM customers.

Express Scripts says it will save customers $1.8 billion in 2017 by excluding a list of 85 drugs from its formulary in 2017. It added a handful of new names to the list, including Bristol-Myers Squibb‘s (BMY) arthritis medication Orencia, Eli Lilly‘s (LLY) new psoriasis medication and Valeants (VRX) Zyclara, an actinic keratosis skin cream, while also removing several names, including Pfizer‘s (PFE) arthritis drugs Xeljanz (it is now a preferred alternative follow price negotiations with Express Scripts).

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) worked hard to turn its business around during the oil market downturn. We saw the first glimpse of its ability to thrive, now that prices are on the upswing, at the end of last year when the U.S. oil giant reported $545 million, or $0.45 per share, of adjusted earnings. That result marked a significant improvement from the loss it had posted in the previous year.

    The number of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) shares short dropped to 17.34 million from the previous level of 18.27 million. Shares were trading at $68.71, within a 52-week range of $42.27 to $71.71.

    Oil prices have been on fire over the past year and recently topped $70 a barrel, which is the highest crude has been since late 2014. That rally in the oil market has helped fuel big-time gains in many oil stocks. Three that stand out are Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Hess (NYSE:HES), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) because each has risen more than 20% this year. They might still have additional upside from here given that all three plan on spending billions of dollars to buy back more of their stock.
