Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

It’s easy to see why growth investors like marijuana stocks. They have been on fire. Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB) stock is up 45% so far this year, and Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC) has scored a 60% gain. The Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences ETF, which tracks the industry, is up 32% in 2019.

All this has happened without any real news. But news is coming.

Aurora and Canopy are both due to report results this week. Analysts will be looking at their sales growth and how much cash they have in the bank. For ACB stock, which recently did a C$345 million convertible offering, and Canopy, which got a $3.8 billion equity infusion from Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ) last year, those numbers should look good.

But we’re not yet at the point of evaluating pot companies by any real metrics. It’s all a lot of smoke, mirrors, highs and lows.

The ACB Stock Outlook

Take Aurora. While ACB stock is up sharply in 2019, its all-time high was achieved last October, at $12.52 per share, nearly 60% above where it opened for trade this morning.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Invest In 2019: Continental Resources, Inc.(CLR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Oil prices are higher today than they were just a couple of years ago, after starting to rebound in early 2016. So it isn’t as easy to find the kinds of deals Franco-Nevada was inking not too long ago. But Franco-Nevada still sees value in the energy space — if the right deal is available. For example, it just partnered up with Continental Resources, Inc. (NYSE:CLR).

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Clearwater Seafoods (TSE:CLR) declared a quarterly dividend on Tuesday, May 8th, Zacks reports. Shareholders of record on Saturday, May 19th will be given a dividend of 0.05 per share on Friday, June 1st. This represents a $0.20 dividend on an annualized basis and a yield of 3.96%. The ex-dividend date of this dividend is Thursday, May 17th.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    What could become a key to Franco-Nevada’s turnaround is a recent deal with Continental Resources (NYSE:CLR). Under the strategic relationship, Franco-Nevada will pay $220 million to obtain existing mineral rights that Continental controls. Moreover, the streaming and royalty company will commit as much as $100 million a year for three years to acquire new mineral rights. That led Franco-Nevada to upgrade its long-term oil and gas outlook as well, with the potential to get as much as $120 million to $140 million in revenue by 2022. If achieved, that could begin to make oil and gas almost equally important for Franco-Nevada as precious metals.

    Since oil prices peaked in 2014, both Total and Shell have managed to generate positive total returns for investors who held through the downturn, in large part because of their diverse operations.

    The stock market didn’t see much in the way of sustained movement Wednesday, with the major market indexes finished mixed, but close to where they began the day.

    Four Stocks to Watch Today: UL, SSNLF, TSLA, SNAP
    Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) is absolutely certain that it will become profitable in 2019. Despite the stock falling more than 45% this year and it now where close to its IPO, a company memo was leaked from a top executive that they have a goal of profitability for the full year of 2019. And it seems that a few investors are willing to believe them as shares are up 3.2% this morning. Keep in mind that this memo was leaked after the stock took a 5% hit on Thursday. Today, conglomerate Unilever NV (NYSE: UL) announced that it has abandoned a plan to move its operating headquarters out of the United Kingdom to the Netherlands. The move was originally announced ahead of the Brexit, which continues to barrel forward with tremendous uncertainty for politicians, citizens, and UK-based companies. The firm’s stock was off nearly 1% after it announced that a “significant group of shareholders” did not support the relocation plan. Shares of Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) fell 4.4% after CEO Elon Musk made a rather reckless accusation at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Musk referred to the SEC as the “Shortseller Enrichment Commission.” His mocking comes just days after Musk settled fraud charges stemming back to his claims in August that he had failed to inform the agency about material company events and misled investors that he had secured funding to take Tesla private. As part of the settlement, Musk also agreed to step down from his role of chair for at least three years and to have his Twitter messages vetted by company officials to

Billionaire investor Carl Icahn is all but exiting the casino industry, selling his stake in Tropicana Entertainment for $1.85 billion. But maybe Eldorado Resorts (NASDAQ:ERI) — which will operate the properties bought by real estate investment trust (REIT) Gaming & Leisure Properties (NASDAQ:GLPI) — shouldn’t be going all in.

Eldorado may be piling too much onto its plate, having also purchased Isle of Capri Casinos last year for $1.75 billion and making a small tuck-in acquisition of an Illinois casino at the same time as the Tropicana deal.

A rise to prominence out of bankruptcy

Icahn Enterprises (NASDAQ:IEP) bought Tropicana in 2008 during the collapse of the financial markets. In 2010, Tropicana emerged from bankruptcy protection under a $200 million deal brokered by Icahn, which gave him control of eight casinos in Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, Missouri, New Jersey, and Aruba. The Aruba resort is not included in the current deal, but will be sold at a later date.
