The all sell below their stated book value, a sure sign of just how unwanted they&s;ve become. They languish sadly in the remote, distant land of the very, very low price/earnings ratio. These are the most unloved stocks on the New York Stock Exchange.

Will some contrarian stock picker eventually find them attractive for who they are? Are there any remaining bold investors out there who track down equities this cheap and out-of-favor? I don&s;t know, but here are 5 NYSE-listed stocks that few want to even dance with:

&l;strong&g;IAMGOLD Corporation&l;/strong&g; is a Canadian-based mining outfit that is now trading at a level just below its book value. The price/earnings ratio is a staggeringly low 5.

Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

Kimberly-Clark Corp. (NYSE:KMB) has provided investors with reliable income increases for decades.

All of these investment qualities are appealing for retired investors living on dividends.

Like many other large consumer brand multinationals however, Kimberly-Clark is battling foreign currency headwinds, slower growth in developed markets and an evolving competitive landscape.

Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019: AmerisourceBergen Corporation (Holding Co)(ABC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    AmerisourceBergen (ABC) sprinted to the top of the S&P 500 after releasing Street-beating earnings this morning.

    Getty Images

    Shares of AmerisourceBergen jumped 8.8% to $$75.96 today, while the S&P 500 dropped fell 0.7% to 2,097.94.

    Leerink’s David Larsen and Matt Dellelo traces today’s big gain to Amerisource’s big drop following McKesson’s (MCK) earnings last week:

    This morningAmerisourceBergen reported adjusted EPS of $1.30, which was well ahead of Leerink/consensus of $1.22/$1.22. The quality of the beat appears decent, with some pressure in gross margin, completely offset by lower SG&A costs. Given the dramatic reduction in guidance provided byMcKesson (MP), investors had been very cautious heading into the quarter. We are pleased to see that F2017 EPS guidance of $5.63-$5.88 brackets Leerink/consensus estimates of $5.85/$5.82. Brand inflation is now expected to be in the +7-9% range from 10% previously, and F2017 is expected to be back-half loaded. Our first impression of the quarter is that the print and guide are good and there will likely be a relief rally in the shares.

    AmerisourceBergen’s market capitalization rose to $18.1 billion from $16.6 billion yesterday.

Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019: Concho Resources Inc.(CXO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Rising acreage prices are causing Permian peers concern that the market is getting too hot. For example, Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO) recently said that it was having difficulty finding a good value in Permian land deals. That’s saying a lot for a company that completed several deals over the past year, including paying $1.625 billion for 40,000 net acres last August, or more than $40,000 per acre. However, with recent deals in the mid-$40,000s per acre, and up to as high as $58,500 per acre, buyers like Concho are growing cautious, which suggests land values might be topping out.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Large Caps. Our E&P coverage is pricing in $61/bbl WTI and $3.30 gas, and with a lower crude forecast the group is looking less compelling. We argue names that continue to demonstrate resource improvement at the low-end of the cost curve, namely in the Permian and STACK remain attractive, such as Concho Resources (CXO), Devon Energy (DVN), Newfield Exploration (NFX) and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD). Noble (NBL) remains a compelling value, though has yet to commit to an accelerated US onshore drilling program.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2018

Stocks finished the week lower as oil prices fell and the Federal Reserve looks set to raise interest rates next week.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

The S&P 500 fell 0.4% this week after rising 0.3% to2,372.60 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.5% this week after advancing44.79 points, or 0.2%, to20,902.98 today. The Nasdaq Composite dipped 0.2% this week after gaining 0.4% to5,861.73 today.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite snapped six-week winning streaks, while the Dow ended a four-week winning streak.

Wellington Shields’ Frank Gretz notes that the “market is supposed to be anticipatory.” He explains:

Opinions follow price memories do as well. If higher prices alone were not enough, the news always seems to improve as prices move higher. After all, the media always needs to explain the higher prices, and the good therefore becomes the emphasis. For example, theres little talk of the all-but-certain pending rate hike. Since the election the market has had a remarkable run, one built more on policy hope than policy reality. This complaint is met with the retort that it has only been 50 days, or whatever. Fair enough, but the point remains. Then, too, the market is supposed to do this, its supposed to be anticipatory. Investors are getting this, and hence, what has been persistent strength. Interestingly, investors will begin to believe they always got it no one was really worried about a possible trade war, and so on. The psychologist Baruch Fischhoff called this creeping determinism, the idea that unexpected events turn into the expected. In other words, we will remember being more bullish in November than we were.

Top Gold Stocks To Watch Right Now

BlackBerrys stock touched two-year highs of about $11.50 in early June after it won a surprise $940 million arbitration award relating to a dispute with Qualcomm. However, the stock has declined by over 20% since then, presently trading at levels of under $9 per share. Below we take a look at some of the factors that may have resulted in the selloff.

Trefis has a $9.50 price estimate for BlackBerry, which is slightly ahead of the current market price.

BlackBerry has been banking on its software business to drive growth, but its progress appears to have slowed down in recent quarters. During fiscal Q1, software and services revenues declined by about 12% on a sequential basis to $160 million, while its total number of customer orders also declined by about 6%. BlackBerrys overall revenues have also been trending lower, amid sharp declines in both the service access fee business and the shift from a manufacturing to a licensing model in the smartphone operations. The company is expected to see its lowest-ever levels of revenue during Q2 FY18 (quarter ending August 2017), with the market consensus standing at around $221 million, compared to revenues of around $334 million in the year ago period. BlackBerry has been betting on areas such as fleet tracking and automotive technologies, announcing small acquisitions or partnerships from time to time. However, there has been little news on this front over the last quarter, and there remains little clarity as to how BlackBerry can compete at scale with rivals such as Verizon in the fleet tracking space and Tesla and Google in the automotive tech space. Analysts at Goldman Sachs also resumed coverage on the stock earlier this month, issuing a sell rating, noting that BlackBerrys enterprise mobility management offering could face more competitive pressures, as rivals such as VMware and Microsoft bundle their EMM with other products. This likely hurt the sentiment surrounding the stock.

    Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA), not coincidentally, is getting ready to the same thing.

    Second, the company sells to a much bigger player with deeper pockets that can capitalize the long-cycle sales process and development at the same time. This is a viable alternative for management and shareholders alike. It’s also very typical for growing companies with the kind of valuable intellectual property like Ekso has that just need a little “umppph.”

    Mandating solar on new buildings would be a huge boost for the solar industry, but it would have an ancillary benefit of being much cheaper than solar through traditional sales channels. Sales and marketing costs have proven to be very high for solar because sales staff often have to visit each home individually. Tesla Motors'(NASDAQ:TSLA) SolarCity, in particular, has had to lower its installation guidance multiple times over the past year, and costs have spiked because sales are becoming more difficult.

    NVIDIA has established itself as one of the key players in the self driving cars market. And it’s worth noting that at least some of NVIDIA’s gains have also come at Mobileye’s expense. Last year, Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)switched from Mobileye’s technology to NVIDIA’s Drive PX2 platform after the driver of a Model S was killed last year while using Tesla’s autopilot feature. While the cause of the crash has been disputed by Mobileye, the result remains the same – Mobileye has conceded some business to NVIDIA. And as Paul R La Monica points out in this post on CNN Money, at least some industry observers believe that NVIDIA has the egde:

    As if this isn’t enough, NVIDIA is also making rapid progress in another segment of the AI market: autonomous driving market. Revenue from NVIDIA’s ‘Auto’ segment is up 59% YoY through the first 3 quarters of 2016. As the number of partnerships with car companies rises, expect the growth rates from the Autonomous cars space to only become steeper. To put things in perspective, consider the recent partnership with Tesla (NSDQ:TSLA). NVIDIA and Tesla recently announced that all Tesla cars will now come equipped with the NVIDIA Drive PX 2 platform to enable autonomous driving in the future. The market consensus is that NVIDIA charges Tesla around $1000 – $1500 (a huge discount to $15000 list price) for every unit of DRIVE PX 2 sold. Based on Tesla management’s comments, Tesla is expected to deliver 79,212 units in 2016. Based on this number and a $1000 price point, NVIDIA could earn $79M in incremental revenue from the Tesla deal alone, going ahead. This represents a 17.5% share of NVIDIA’s last 4 quarters revenue from the ‘Auto’ segment. And, given the fact that Tesla deliveries are nowhere near flattening out, especially as the company ramps up Model 3 production, the incremental revenue from just this one deal could be far higher in the coming years.

The Senate released the 515-page text of its sweeping tax legislation for the first time Monday evening — and Republican leaders plan to hold a floor vote on it within 10 days.

That short span reflects an unusually fast process in both chambers, said William Galston, a senior fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution, a Washington-based policy group. The House passed its tax bill 14 days after releasing its text.

“‘Unusually fast’ understates how remarkable this legislative process is,” Galston said. “One reason these bills are going through so quickly is they’re primarily about tax cuts and only secondarily about tax reform.”

The last time that Congress rewrote the tax code, in 1986, “the actual legislative deliberations over the bill stretched out over months — and it was a good thing,” he said.

    Noble Energygained 7.1% to $40.05, while the S&P 500 fell 0.3% to2,267.89.

    Wunderlich’s Irene Haas explains why she’s a fan of the deal:

    Noble Energy (NBL) has agreed to acquire Clayton Williams Energy Inc. (CWEI-$103.98, Hold) for $3.4 billion. The transaction has been approved by both boards and should close during 2Q17.

Netting out production, acreage outside of Reeves County, and midstream assets, NBL valued the Reeves County acreage at~$32,000 per net acre. NBL has the balance sheet and the technical expertise to develop the project quickly and generate meaningful production and cash flow growth. We reiterate our Buy rating on NBL.

    Noble Energy’s market capitalization rose to $17.2 billion from $16.1 billion on Friday. It reported a net lossof $2.4 billion on sales of $3 billion in 2015.

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.
