Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019

Legendary investor Bill Miller is the former chairman and chief investment officer of Legg Mason Capital Management. He has been named fund manager of the decade by Morningstar and ranked as the top 30 most influential people in investing by SmartMoney. Below is an edited summary of his interview with The Investor’s Podcast where he talks about determining the intrinsic value of various companies like Amazon, Apple, and Tesla Motors.

Listen to this interview in your car by subscribing to the show on iTunes or Stitcher.

Preston Pysh: How does your approach differ from other famous value investors like Warren Buffett or Joel Greenblatt?

Bill Miller: Every value investor has a unique style, and my difference is that I am more eclectic. Buffett has said that he has moved on from the old Benjamin Graham style of deep values to a style that favors purchasing solid businesses at fair prices that compound on themselves. I am comfortable with both methods. Greenblatt used to prefer a concentrated style with high returns on capital, but now he has hundreds of companies with good financial characteristics in order to lower the volatility. On the contrary, I am skeptical of volatility. Since the financial crisis, volatility has been the price for performance in the risk-averse environment. I am willing to tolerate a lot more perceived risk in the portfolio than most other value investors.

On the European front, shares of Deutsche Bank (NYSE: DB) were off another 3.72% after the German banking giant reported earnings.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019

The Federal Reserve raised its target of the federal-funds rate, the interest rate banks charge each other for overnight loans, by a quarter point to a range of 0.75% to 1%, and thats great news for Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) and its shareholders. As a bondholder, owner of insurance companies and an investor in big banks, Berkshire profits from rising interest rates in a number of ways, says David Kass, a professor at the University of Maryland’s Robert H.

    Wednesday was a down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting triple-digit losses even as broader benchmarks had much smaller moves. Market participants largely focused their attention on the inflation front, as March consumer price index numbers showed a 0.2% rise in the core rate excluding food and energy. Year-over-year price changes have accelerated, seemingly giving the Federal Reserve more justification to continue raising interest rates. Yet even though many stocks generally react unfavorably to inflation fears, there were some big gainers that had good news. Hilton Worldwide Holdings (NYSE:HLT), Pretium (NYSE:PVG), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Pound/Rand(PX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    The last twelve months haven’t been kind to Praxair (PX) and Air Products & Chemicals (APD), but UBS analyst John Roberts and team argue that’s about to change, as they upgrade their shares to Buy from Neutral arguing that their earnings can withstand a slowing global economy:

    In our view, the two stocks are more alike than different. NTM P/Es are within ~0.5 pts of each other. Both stocks have declined ~20% from their historical highs the largest corrections in 20+ years aside from the financial crisis…

    Industrial gas stocks have normally grown through changes in FX, oil & China demand within normal historical ranges. And investor concerns around China forAir Products & Chemicals may still prove much bigger than reality. Nevertheless, the combination of FX & oil sector impacts on Praxair, and FX & China issues for Air Products & Chemicals, have been much larger than previously seen. With oil already down, the dollar already appreciated, & China concerns already heightened we believe forward basis would appear to carry only normal risks (& lower if FX & oil are mean-reverting, which some theories support).

    Normal high single digit EPS growth projected for both in 2017 vs 2016: Four large firms serve 70%+ of the global merchant gas market, and price normally contributes ~2% to growth. Customer older captive units being outsourced contributes another 2%. Secular drivers for oxygen include energy savings (i.e. O2 burns more efficiently than air), life sciences (healthcare & microbial processes) nitrogen secular drivers include increasing purity requirements (food freezing & semiconductors). Topline growth ~2x global GDP more normal, with EPS growth ~2x sales growth due to high fixed costs (key variable costs are inexpensive air & power).

    Financial crisis demand drop was only a few %, in line with global GDP drop Most chemicals volumes dropped 10%+ (some 40%

Advisors’ Opinion:

    NCR’s first-quarter results were solid and continued the company’s positive momentum.

On a GAAP basis, NCR lost money during the quarter, but after excluding impacts from the company’s transaction with Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX), adjusted earnings of $0.56 per share were up by nearly half from year-ago levels and were stronger than the $0.46 per share consensus forecast among those following the stock.
