Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019

Fidelity Investments started a new mutual fund and tapped two of its most successful managers, William Danoff and Joel Tillinghast, to run it. There’s just one catch: it’s only available to Canadian investors.

Fidelity Global Growth and Value Class fund marks the first time the managers will run a fund together. The new product aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in companies anywhere in the world, according to a news release issued Thursday. It was created by Fidelity Investments Canada, which operates independently of the U.S. fund giant.

Danoff has run the $128 billion Fidelity Contrafund since 1990, and over that stretch has beaten the S&P 500 Index by more than 300 basis points a year. Tillinghast’s $36 billion Fidelity Low-Priced Stock Fund has topped its benchmark, the Russell 2000 Index, by more than 400 basis points annually since 1989.

“We are pleased to launch this new fund that brings together the brilliance of Will and Joel and their investment approaches,” Rob Strickland, president of Fidelity Investments Canada, said Thursday.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Rosevear]

    The concept isn’t a new one — it’s what businesses like Zipcar and General Motors’ (NYSE:GM) Maven have been doing for several years. But VW is adding a twist: All of the vehicles in its service will be battery-electric.

    A rumor surfaced a few days ago that Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and General Motors Co.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019: Kamada Ltd.(KMDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Retail stocks are in focus after the U.S. Census Bureau released monthly sales figures before the bell Tuesday. The bureau said that retail sales increased by 0.3% in April, a figure that matched trade expectations. Markets had expected consumer spending to increase, however home improvement sales were not the major factor that most expected. This was evident from The Home Depot’s earnings report. Markets are increasingly optimistic over U.S. trade negotiations with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No. 1 economic advisor will visit the United States this week to continue the nation’s dialogue with America. In addition, roughly 100 companies and trade associations will be sounding off to the Trump administration about the potential impact of tariffs in the Chinese markets.
    Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, AMZN, GS
    Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) is in focus thanks to tax policy in Seattle. On Monday, the Seattle’s City Council passed a bill that will tax Amazon and 131 other companies $275 per employee each year in order to create a fund to address homelessness in the Seattle. The tax is half what was originally proposed and remains a contentious issue for Amazon, which is the city’s biggest employer. Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) is sounding the alarm about the state of the markets. The company warned that the U.S. budget deficit is increasing while America’s unemployment rate is falling. This hasn’t occurred since the World War II. The bank believes that the combination of the two could cause the Fed to spike interest rates in the near future. This comes at a time when the Fed has already lost control of interest rates. Look for additional earnings reports from Eagle Materials Inc. (NYSE: EXP), Bitauto Holding Ltd. (Nasdaq: BITA), Virtusa Corp. (Nasdaq: VRTU), Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (Nasdaq: ENT), and Kamada Ltd. (Nasdaq: KMDA).

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019: SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc.(SEAS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) is sticking to a springtime rollout of the Sesame Street makeover of its kiddie rides section at SeaWorld Orlando, but that’s not the kind of thing that folks schedule their summer travel plans around. The only parks outside of Universal Orlando with head-turning new rides in the coming months are Legoland Florida, with its The Lego Movie World expansion opening late next month, and SeaWorld’s Busch Gardens Tampa, which is adding a new coaster. However, both of those parks are nearly an hour away from the tourism hotbed where Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld Orlando compete for visitors. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) has yet to open the watery thrill ride that was supposed to be the big draw at its most visited theme park this summer, but that isn’t stopping it from making plans for next year at one of its other nearby attractions. SeaWorld Entertainment announced on Wednesday that it will open a new roller coaster at Busch Gardens Tampa early next year, even as delays at getting the Infinity Falls raft ride up and running at SeaWorld Orlando continue.

    In this episode of Industry Focus: Consumer Goods, Vincent Shen and Motley Fool contributor Dan Kline take a first pass at understanding what it takes to run a theme park with three of the biggest names in the industry — Six Flags (NYSE:SIX), Cedar Fair (NYSE:FUN), and SeaWorld (NYSE:SEAS).

  • [By Lee Jackson]

    SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: SEAS) was downgraded to sell from neutral at Citigroup. The 52-week trading range for the company’s shares has been $10.42 to $21.29. The consensus price target for the shares is $17. The stock closed trading on Monday at $21.01.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) appears to be the only operator that’s still fumbling away the telltale travel season in Florida. The record-setting river-rafting attraction has been pitched as a summertime opening for SeaWorld Orlando since it was announced last year, but construction appears nowhere close to being completed in time to soak the first wave of summer visitors. 

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019: Wells Fargo & Company(WFC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) reported its second-quarter earnings Friday morning, and missed analysts’ expectations on both the top and bottom lines. In addition, the bank’s loan and deposit portfolios shrunk over the past year, and its profitability and efficiency both leave something to be desired. Here’s a rundown of the numbers, and what they mean for investors.

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    U.S. sanctions of Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) may last longer than expected. According to The Wall Street Journal:

    Wells Fargo & Co. will remain constrained by a regulator-imposed limit on growth for longer than expected, its chief executive said Thursday, as the bank continues to address the ramifications of risk-management failures.

    So where do you find them? Well, preferred stocks trade just like common shares on one of the major stock exchanges. They are a popular fundraising tool for companies that need capital to grow and expand, but don’t want to borrow or issue more common stock. Well-known businesses like Ford Motor (NYSE: F), General Electric (NYSE: GE), Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) and T-Mobile (Nasdaq: TMUS) have all issued preferred stock.

    Instead of pitching in more of his own money now, Lampert’s been working to try to secure financing from institutions other than his own hedge fund, ESL Investments. Reuters reports negotiations with Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) and Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) fell through as Lampert sought to arrange debtor-in-possession financing. Basically such reorganization efforts allow existing management to continue operating the train. But rumor has it lenders are not willing to give Lampert free rein anymore and are pushing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing that calls for Sears to be liquidated, rather than the reorganization that Chapter 11 allows.

    Overall, Crestwood expects to invest $275 million to $325 million into expansion projects this year, slightly above its initial forecast to spend between $250 million and $300 million on capital projects. One driver of the increased budget is that oil and gas producer Enerplus (NYSE:ERF) awarded the company a contract to expand its water system in the Bakken. Crestwood expects to invest $60 million over the next two years on this project, which will help support Enerplus’ volume growth in the region.

Celgene (MP) Revlimid Reinforces Core Position in Myeloma. Two abstracts presented at ASCO reinforce lenalidomides positioning in two different multiple myeloma settings. The first was a meta-analysis of lenalidomide maintenance therapy following autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) patients. The analysis, which was based on three randomized studies, showed that lenalidomide maintenance provided a survival benefit over placebo (HR=0.74, p=0.001). Prior exposure to lenalidomide in induction therapy was correlated with improved survival benefit. This analysis supports the use of lenalidomide in the subset of patients treated with ASCT (25-30%)…

However, even the healthy gains made recently don’t come close to erasing the losses accumulated in recent years, as both shipping leaders are down over 34% in the last three-year period.

    Rental rates aren’t the only thing gaining momentum. Several companies are demonstrably stronger today, including containership leader Seaspan (NYSE:SSW). The investor favorite has made moves to strengthen its long-term prospects just in time to capitalize on rebounding global demand for shipping vessels of nearly every size. Throw in the purchase of a Chinese joint venture, which injected youthful vessels and new contracts into the business, and a $500 million investment from a major shareholder, and it’s easy to see why shares are up 80% in the last year alone.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019

I came across NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) in early 2013, when it was starting to become a major player in the Chinese mobile game industry. At first, I was a bit skeptical about their future growth and valuation. Video game companies are sometimes “one-hit wonders”, and decline after their top sellers lose popularity. But NetEase is an exception. After watching it for a few months, I decided then to bite the bullet and buy the stock. And I’m glad I did.

The company has produced leading online games in China since 2001, has a diversified business model over many in-house developed and licensed titles, and currently holds over $4.6 billion in cash, which can be used for buybacks, dividends and acquisitions.

I believe that NTES is still significantly undervalued and there are several upcoming catalysts which will unlock this value. The company is a dominant player in the Chinese gaming market, with significant competitive advantages and high barriers to entry.

Renewable energy is set to go from strength to strength in coming years and it will be generating 50% of global electricity by 2050, according to one of the most authoritative voices in clean energy.

However, President Trump&a;rsquo;s battle to save the coal industry looks doomed, with coal-powered generation set to make up just 11% of global electricity generation by the middle of the century, down from 38% today, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Its New Energy Outlook (NEO) 2018 says that the continuing fall in the cost of batteries will massively increase the ability the ability to store off-peak electricity and sell it when demand is high, which will enable renewable technologies &a;ndash; particularly wind and solar projects – to take an increasing share of the electricity market. This will create a $548 billion battery market, with total investment in clean energy between now and 2050 set to reach $11.5 trillion.
