Hot Value Stocks To Watch For 2019

In yesterday's essay, I introduced you to Michael J. Mauboussin, a prominent value investor, author, and longtime adjunct professor at Columbia University.   Mauboussin estimates he has devoted two-thirds of his 30-year investing career to thinking and writing about the investment process. Last summer, he condensed those two decades of insights and analysis into an essay titled "Reflections on the 10 Attributes of Great Investors."   Yesterday, we reviewed five of those attributes. Today, we'll explore the remaining five…  

6. "Beware of behavioral biases (minimizing constraints to good thinking)."

The way we think and feel directly affects our investment behavior and "biases" our decision-making process. Robert P. Seawright, a successful money manager and author, considers what I've summarized below to be some of the most common behavioral biases for investors:

Top Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019

Business Overview

ZCL Composites (OTCPK:ZCLCF) (or ZCL on the TSX) is the world’s largest manufacturer of underground fibreglass storage tanks. Their products are divided into 3 sectors: Waste & Wastewater, Industrial, and Oil & Gas.

Financial Position

ZCL is in a very strong position, with 0 debt and a price to book of under 3 to 1 at the time of this article.

(From Sedar)

Sudden Decline

The main purpose of this article is to point out that the recent decline of ZCL is way overblown and represents a buying opportunity of great value. The recent Q3 Earnings on Nov 2 saw the share price decline from $13.71 at the close to an open of just under $12 on Nov 3, it is now trading under $10.40 at the time of this article. The technicals are terrible, but the fundamentals of the company haven’t changed much at all, certainly not enough to warrant a decline of roughly 25% of the stock price.

Top Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019: Senior Housing Properties Trust(SNH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    The number of Americans over 65 years of age is expected to double to around 98 million by 2060. Senior Housing Properties Trust (NASDAQ:SNH), Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE:OHI), and Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE:MPW) are all real estate investment trusts (REITs) that own medical buildings and housing facilities that an aging country is going to need a lot more of in the years to come. Here’s why they’re perfect investments for retirees or those of you excited about being one soon.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    ValuEngine lowered shares of Senior Housing Properties Trust (NASDAQ:SNH) from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research report sent to investors on Wednesday.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Senior Housing Properties Trust (NASDAQ:SNH) has been given a consensus recommendation of “Hold” by the ten ratings firms that are currently covering the stock, Marketbeat Ratings reports. Three equities research analysts have rated the stock with a sell recommendation, five have issued a hold recommendation and two have issued a buy recommendation on the company. The average 12 month target price among brokers that have issued ratings on the stock in the last year is $18.67.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    The baby boom generation is cresting into retirement, with this demographic wave driving demand for healthcare assets for decades to come. That’s the backstory for healthcare real estate investment trusts, or REITs, like 5.6% yielding HCP, Inc. (NYSE:HCP) and 8.3% yielding Senior Housing Properties Trust (NASDAQ:SNH). Since REITs are a dividend-focused asset class, you might be tempted to buy the healthcare REIT with the highest yield, but don’t make that mistake. Dig into the story a little bit more.

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    The second stock we have today is Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE: SNH).

    If you are looking for an industry with no shortage of demand, look no further than senior living facilities. And if you’re looking for a breakout stock with a robust dividend, then your pick should be Senior Housing Properties Trust.

Top Performing Stocks To Own For 2019

L Brands (LB) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after the parent company of Victoria’s Secret reported a 10% drop in same-store sales.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

L Brands surged 11% to $47.85 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.2% to2,357.49. And while L Brands was the best performer, retailers made up half of the 10 best performing stocks in the benchmark today: Nordstrom (JWN) advanced 2.9% to $44.71, Gap (GPS) jumped 5.1% to $24.06, Kohl’s (KSS) climbed 5.6% to $39.60, andBed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), which reported earnings last night, gained 3.4% to $39.08.

RBC analystsBrian Tunick andKate Fitzsimons attributed L Brand’s big move to a short squeeze. They explain:

Bottom line, with the stock recently hitting a 52 week low yesterday, the 10% squeeze were seeing in the shares is likely reflective of the better-than-feared trade rather than long-only buyers stepping in. The reality is that LBs fundamentals are still challenged (down 10% comps are nothing to throw a party for), with the overhang on LB shares related to how much of the damage is self-inflicted (7% category exit headwind called out this month) vs. a tough mall traffic environment. Net/net, we remain neutral on LB shares given the lack of top line visibility as LB executes these category exits, with April and 2Q17s merch margin commentary ones to watch for signals that weve rounded the bottom.

Top Performing Stocks To Own For 2019: Berkshire Hathaway Inc.(BRK.A)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    Drug pricing controversies, increased generic competition for blockbuster drugs, and the recent merger between retail giant CVS Health Corp. (NYSE: CVS) and insurance company Aetna Inc. (NYSE: AET) have weakened returns for shareholders.
    In addition, Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A), and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) announced a joint venture to enter the health insurance industry.

    Investors certainly haven’t been ignoring such challenges in recent years, as IBM’s 5-year chart makes clear. But after seeing Big Blue mostly sit out a massive 2-year tech rally, and after seeing Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)   unload nearly all of its IBM shares, it looks like markets are now even less forgiving of bad news than before.

Top Performing Stocks To Own For 2019: Loews Corporation(L)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    It’s not just that its general partner Loews Corporation (NYSE:L) has the ability to do so, It appears that both Boardwalk and Loews are seriously considering this option. Here’s Horton again on the call:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Finally, units of Boardwalk Pipeline Partners rose 5%. The master limited partnership has seen its value consistently erode over the past year, but there’s been speculation in the last several months that controlling shareholder Loews (NYSE:L)could choose to buy out the limited partnership units. Some investors have been pleased at the idea of possibly getting a quick bump from recent low share prices, but longer-term unitholders aren’t thrilled about having held on this long only to have Loews buy them out at a bargain price. It’s unclear which side will win out, but today’s move at least makes it clear that investors are paying attention.

    But now, with Schultz stepping back from his beloved company, the task of the righting the ship will fall to Johnson, who took over as a CEO just over a year ago. Schultz, who had already transitioned away from running the coffee chain’s day-to-day operations, announced earlier this month he'd be leaving the company, fueling speculation he could be gearing up for a political career. Veteran retailing executive Myron Ullman is taking over as the new head of the board as Schultz departs.

    While Schultz had been trying to expand the Seattle company’s premium business, dubbed Reserve, along with Italian bakery Princi, analysts have speculated that these may be put on the back burner under the new leadership. The company is also facing a resurgent McDonald’s, which has been advertising $2 cold-brew coffees, along with other steep discounts from fast-food rivals.

Best China Stocks To Own For 2019

Tech giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) owns China’s largest search engine and mapping platform, the popular video site iQiyi, and links it all together with a vast ecosystem of internet and cloud-based services.

However, investors who are interested in Baidu should take a closer look at its revenue streams to understand the unique challenges that it faces. Today, we’ll discuss how Baidu makes most of its money, the headwinds that it faces, and whether or not the stock is a good buy at current prices.

Baidu Image Search. Image source: Author’s screenshot.

How does Baidu make money?

91% of Baidu’s revenue came fromonline marketing in fiscal 2016. However, revenue at the unit rose just 0.8% to $9.3 billion during the year, due to two main factors.

First, Chinese regulators forced Baidu to remove ads(particularly for healthcare products and services) which were deemed misleading.That crackdown was sparked by the death of a college student who pursued a questionable cancer treatment advertised on Baidu. Several years ago, rival search engine Qihoo 360 notably accused Baidu of generating 30% of its ad revenues fromfake healthcare ads. The resulting purge caused Baidu’s number of active online marketing customers to drop 18.6% annually to 452,000 during the fourth quarter, resulting in an 8.2% year-over-year decline in marketing revenues.

Best China Stocks To Own For 2019: CBL & Associates Properties, Inc.(CBL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Bon-Ton’s disappearance is likely to cause even more distress for Washington Prime and CBL & Associates Properties (NYSE:CBL). Both mid-tier mall operators have been suffering from department-store chains closing anchor locations at their properties.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    An issue of CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. (NYSE:CBL) bonds rose 0.8% as a percentage of their face value during trading on Tuesday. The debt issue has a 5.95% coupon and will mature on December 15, 2026. The bonds in the issue are now trading at $84.75 and were trading at $83.87 one week ago. Price changes in a company’s bonds in credit markets often anticipate parallel changes in its stock price.

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    This is particularly true when it comes to lower-end (“Class B” and “Class C”) mall operators like CBL & Associates (NYSE:CBL), just to name one example. CBL operates Class B and C malls in mid-sized markets, and a staggering 60% of its properties have a Sears or J.C. Penney (which isn’t in much better shape) occupying an anchor location.

Best China Stocks To Own For 2019: Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation(CDE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    There’s no way to sugarcoat it:2017 was not a particularly good year for shareholders of silver and gold miner Coeur Mining, Inc. (NYSE:CDE). When it comes to investing, though, you need to balance the past with the future, and this miner’s efforts in 2017 look like they will set up a much better long-term future. Here’s why precious metals investors should be taking a closer look at Coeur Mining, but probably shouldn’t rush to pull the trigger.

Top Gold Stocks To Own Right Now: Targa Resources, Inc.(TRGP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Kinder Morgan has already started to capture some of this growth. It’s working with two of the largest natural gas gathering and processing companies in the region –DCP Midstream (NYSE:DCP) and Targa Resources(NYSE:TRGP) — on the Gulf Coast Express pipeline. That $1.7 billion pipeline will have the capacity to move 1.92 BCF/D of natural gas to market centers along the Gulf when it comes online next October. It’s the first of what could be many expansion projects for the company in the region over the next several years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The growth opportunities could be significant. Large-scale midstream companies Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP) and Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA) currently have billions of dollars of Permian growth projects under way that will significantly increase their cash flow in the coming years. Targa Resources recently secured contracts supporting $500 million of gas gathering and processing investments in the region, which boosted its total backlog of Permian projects to $2.4 billion, or 75% of its total planned spending over the next two years. Those expansions position it to nearly double its earnings by 2021. Plains All American Pipelines, meanwhile, is investing more than 80% of its roughly $2 billion capital budget on the Permian over the next two years, and it could end up spending even more money to meet the demand for oil gathering capacity. Those expansions help position it to grow cash flow at a double-digit annual pace over the next two years. Given Oasis Midstream’s much smaller size, it has the potential to capture needle-moving growth by expanding into the Permian.

    Aperio Group LLC lowered its stake in shares of Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP) by 16.1% in the first quarter, Holdings Channel reports.
