Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019

Wall Street is stunned after General Electric’s board of directors replaced John Flannery as chief executive with former Danaher CEO Lawrence Culp on Monday.

Flannery, who took the reins at GE in August 2017, was brought in to help turn around the struggling industrial conglomerate after a 16-year tenure by Jeff Immelt.

Though Wall Street first applauded Flannery’s move to embark on a deep dive into the company’s businesses and finances at the start of his term, the board eventually grew unsatisfied with the pace of his execution.

Culp is expected to continue the spinoff of GE’s health-care segment following a similar strategy in its railroad business.

General Electric’s shares, once a longtime favorite for an attractive dividend, have lost nearly half of their value over the past year despite management’s efforts.

Top 10 Stocks For 2019

The average investors in badly managed companies that pay executives large salaries and in which large shareholders get special perks often ask, “Where are the shareholders’ yachts”? At CBS Corp. (NYSE: CBS), the answer is that there aren’t any as controlling shareholder Shari Redstone battles CEO Les Moonves for control of the company.

The value of Redstone’s position, owned via National Amusements, is in the tens of billions of dollars. Moonves made $69.3 million last year and $69.6 million in 2016. CBS has posted good earnings for several years. However, the battle is tearing the company apart, taking up extremely valuable management and board time and putting the future of CBS in question.

Shareholders need management to dig its shares out of a hole. The stock is down 15% in the past year to $52. The S&P 500 is up 15% over the same period.

Redstone would like to merge CBS with Viacom, a company her family also controls. Viacom’s shares have not done as badly as CBS’s in the past year, but the return to investors has been subpar, down 7% to $39.

    In this Motley Fool Money podcast, host Chris Hill and senior Motley Fool analysts David Kretzmann, Jason Moser, and Aaron Bush review the week in business news, and while there were some interesting (and share-price moving) earnings reports, the lead news in retail completely overshadowed the quarterly release from the company in question: word that home improvement major Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) had lured away J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) boss Marvin Ellison to be its new CEO. The Fools consider just how big a deal that is for the company, and what other catalysts are likely to move the needle for it.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Marvin Ellison hasn’t had many opportunities to report good news to Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) investors since he took over the CEO spot last year. The former Home Depot (NYSE:HD) executive announced a reduced sales outlook in each of his first two quarters at the helm, in fact, while noting that execution problems were hurting the chain’s sales and profit trends through most of 2018.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Investors shrugged off strong operating and financial results from Home Depot (NYSE:HD) last year to push the stock lower. It wasn’t that the retailing chain lost ground to rivals like Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW). On the contrary, it expanded its lead against its peer in just about every important business metric. Instead, fears of an impending slowdown in the housing industry have Wall Street worried about the near future for both companies.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

There’s no way around it: the S&P 500 now has a P/E ratio of more than 26 going into the first earnings season of 2017, and even the “safest” bets are starting to look scary.

Unless we see massive profit growth all around, there’s a real risk this bull market is going to stutter—or worse.

So where do you go for value? It’s getting harder than ever, but there is one corner of the market that got way ahead of the S&P 500 and has since taken a step back. I’m talking about real estate investment trusts (REITs).

And now, there are three REITs that combined provide over 9% in income with over 200% average dividend coverage. That means they could double their payouts and still generate enough cash to cover them.

Plus, these stocks are out of favor, making them relatively cheap compared to their peers and the overheated broader market.

Best Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Introduction

I have previously written some articles where I have tracked Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) construction and purchases of property, plant, and equipment (P,P & E), as well as Tesla’s payments for them. The reason Tesla does not have to pay for all its equipment up front was explained in the year end 2016 earnings letter. It stated, “… we continue to negotiate more favorable payment terms with our capital equipment suppliers, pushing some payments closer to the start of Model 3 production and some payments beyond the start of production.” It was further discussed in the associated conference call. I examined this issue in more detail in an article I wrote in June titled “A Capital Raise Could Be Around the Corner.”

I had estimated that Tesla owed about $1.2 bn. at December 31, 2016, for P,P, & E technically owned by them but not yet paid for, a balance which had increased to almost $2.2 bn. by June 30. I had calculated the $2.2 bn. figure by starting with my year end estimate of $1.2 bn. and adding to it to a figure provided at the bottom of the cash flow statement under Supplemental Non Cash Investing and Financing Activities: “Acquisition of property and equipment included in liabilities,” which was $1.02 bn. at June 30. Although Tesla makes substantial payments each quarter for P,P, & E, the company has been acquiring more than it has been paying for in most recent periods, so the unpaid balance has generally been trending up.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Airlines like United Continental (UAL), Alaska Air Group (ALK) and JetBlue Airways (JBLU) have been so cheap for so long now, that making an argument for big gains based solely on valuation seems remarkably foolish.

They explain why:

    It’s been clear from the beginning that Alaska Air’s (NYSE:ALK) acquisition of Virgin America was bad news for United Continental (NYSE:UAL).
