Your financial life can be divided into two phases: accumulation and distribution. The accumulation phase is when you are earning money, building up your savings in preparation for retirement. This phase begins when you start earning an income and ends when you retire. The distribution phase comes after you retire and you start living on the savings you compiled during the accumulation phase. 

The two phases are like climbing a mountain. On the way up – accumulation – your sole focus is reaching the top (the point of retirement). Once you’re standing on the peak, your focus shifts to safely reaching the bottom – the distribution phase. 

Reaching the top of a mountain is worth celebrating, but if you don’t know how to get back down, you could be in big trouble.

    Beta Should Lead At The Start of A Rally: Best ideas in the first leg up: Marathon Oil, Devon Energy (DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Continental Resources (CLR). If OPEC announces a cut, whether moderate or deep, we expect that in the initial move up, moderate value beta names, like Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, andContinental Resources will lead.For a $5 increase in oil prices, we estimate 2017 cash flow per share would increase 12-18% for these stocks vs. the remainder of the group at 12%. Of these four, short interest is modest for all exceptContinental Resources at 25%, among the highest in our universe. Outperformance of these names should be driven by investors adding to long positions, not short covering.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now

 Nothing makes me happier than proving Porter wrong…
 
Back in September, Porter and I (Bryan Beach) took the stage at our annual Alliance Meeting in Las Vegas.
 
I was about to share a list of seven troubled businesses. But I wasn't going to recommend shorting or even avoiding them. Instead, I was going to tell the audience that these stocks would dramatically beat the market in the coming years.
 
Porter heckled me in front of the entire audience. And for good reason… these were terrible companies I would typically never recommend to anyone.
 
So why would I make an exception this time… in front of hundreds of our most loyal subscribers, no less?

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

When 3G and Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) got together to merge Kraft with Heinz to form Kraft Heinz (KHC), they argued that they could cut expenses to create a more efficient business. But if today’s earnings–which appeared, at least on the surface, to be pretty good–demonstrated anything, it’s that Kraft Heinz might be running out of synergies to juice profitability. Susquehanna’s Pablo Zuanic and Aatish Shah explain:

Getty Images

KHC delivered cumulative cost savings of $1.2Bn over five quarters (thru 4Q16), or about 7% of KRFT sales, and EBITDA margins in the US unit increased 800bp from 4Q14 proforma to 4Q16. Supply chain and footprint savings and trade spending efficiencies have to kick in but should come, so it is reasonable to assume the new synergy target of $1.7Bn by end of 2017 may prove conservative. But based on the slowing synergy realization momentum (the $335M quarterly pace in 4Q16, including the $125M from 4Q15, is in line with the 2Q and 3Q gains), increased challenges (macro, FX, competition), need to increase trade spending as in 4Q (when this is supposed to be a source of savings), and unexpected offsets to gross cost savings ($310M over the five quarters offset the $1.5Bn gross savings; in the US EBITDA grew $176M yoy in 4Q16 only while incremental synergies were $210M), we are less bullish now. We project a $2Bn EBITDA gain from 2015 to 2018 to $8.7Bn vs. $10.3Bn before. We also think that these challenges together with uncertainty on the political/regulatory/tax front will make 3G and Berkshire delay any sizable M&A deal-making in the year ahead (to some extent that was also the read between the lines of the 5pm call on Wednesday). At $91 KHC trades at 26x our new FY17 EPS estimate of $3.51 (vs. $4.01 before; consensus is at $3.91), which is a 30% premium to the S5CONS PE. So with slower EBITDA growth and delayed deal-making we see little upside in the year ahead.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.(HA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    While most of its fellow airline stocks were grounded last year, Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) soared to new heights. Shares of Hawaiian Airlines’ parent company rose 61% during 2016, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Investors had high expectations for Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) and Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) leading up to their earnings reports last week. Between late June 2016 and mid-January, shares of Hawaiian Holdings climbed 50%. Southwest Airlines stock was close behind, with a gain of more than 35% over that period.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Not surprisingly, shares of Hawaii-focused airline company Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) fell last Wednesday, following Kelly’s comments about Southwest Airlines expanding to Hawaii. However, while Southwest’s entry into the Hawaii market could cause some short-term disruption, it isn’t likely to hurt Hawaiian Airlines’ positioning in the long run.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc.(LXRX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Lexicon Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: LXRX) dropped about 12.3% Wednesday to post a new 52-week low of $12.93 after closing at $14.74 on Tuesday. The stock’s 52-week high is $19.62. Volume of around 2.8 million was nearly 5 times the daily average. The company had no specific news.

stock market chart

Bookseller Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS) posted its highest-ever stock price at above $45 a share in March of 2006. By March of 2011 it had dropped below $9 a share, and it posted a new all-time low of $7.25 in February of last year.

B&N reported Thursday that same-store sales for the nine-week holiday period ended December 31 plunged 9% year over year. Online sales rose 2% in the same period.

The company blamed the decline on lower foot traffic, as well as a drop in sales of coloring books and artist’s supplies, both big sellers in the 2015 holiday season. Last year’s release of Adele’s “25” CD also boosted B&N’s 2015 sales. Combined, these items accounted for about a third of the store’s sales drop.

While CEO Leonard Riggio told The Wall Street Journal that the decline in store traffic was an issue for “almost every major retailer” this year, that does not excuse him or his management team for being ineffective. Riggio made our list of 2016’s worst CEOs for a reason.
