    Some already had their autonomous car bets made with positions in both Tesla and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) surmising those will be the big winners. They have good company. Trip Chowdhry of Global Equities Research summed up his thesis for autonomous transportation and transportation in general going forward as Winners: Tesla, Nvidia; and Losers: Mobileye (NYSE:MBLY) and all traditional automakers. All traditional automakers? That’s basically every automaker on the planet besides Tesla and maybe Fisker and BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY), that’s a lot of losers. Trip is a talented analyst. I’ve followed him for many years (see his ranking on TipRanks here). Even for him, that’s a pretty bold statement. It got me thinking, is Tesla’s lead in the race for autonomous cars so great that the race is effectively over? I wanted to find out if I was using traditional methodologies too much, overthinking my picks and missing out on the bigger winner, Tesla.

On Monday, some key silver stocks like First Majestic Silver Corp (NYSE: AG) along with solver benchmark the iShares Silver Trust ETF (NYSEARCA: SLV) saw sharper than normal selloffs on an otherwise short trading day. The problem for investors in First Majestic Silver Corp is that its probably the closest thing to a pure play silver stock out there as most other silver miners have long since made aneffort to diversify into gold and other preciousmetals in case silver prices fall off.

    "The money market fund business, which is unprofitable now, should become more profitable as rates rise because Federated has to reimburse for the servicing fees for these funds," said Oja, who also admires the fund company’s 3.5% dividend yield. 

     

    Oja added that Federated also has a "good core business of equity and fixed-income asset management." 

Best Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: Chesapeake Energy Corporation(CHK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The high-end represents a robust growth rate for a company of its size. For perspective, the nation’s second-largest gas producer,Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK), sees its output rising 5% to 15% annually through 2020. Meanwhile, smaller rival Antero Resources expects to grow 20% to 25% this year, while delivering 20% to 22% annual growth from 2018 to 2020. However, that is off a lower production base of roughly 657 billions of cubic feet equivalent compared to 870 billions of cubic feet equivalent for Southwestern.

    When it comes to energy stocks to watch, Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK) has to be on the top of the list.

    This past quarter, CHK continued on its transition plans to reduce its heavy debt load, remake its portfolio of assets and live to see another day. And it seemed at first, CHK was doing just that. The natural gas fracker, however, was hit by some pretty bad news at the end of the quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Natural gas had been under pressure all year, especially after this past February was the warmest since 1954. By mid-March, gas had lost a quarter of its value because of an oversupplied market. However, it awoke from that slumber toward the end of March thanks in part to the triumphant return of winter, which pounded parts of the nation with a major late-season snowstorm. That storm drove up demand for gas, sending the stocks of several gas producers soaring late last month, including Rice Energy and larger rivalsChesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) and Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), which both rose more than 5%.

    And Chesapeake Energy Corp. (NYSE: CHK) is expected to report its most recent quarterly results on Thursday. The consensus estimates call for $0.15 in EPS and $2.3 billion in revenue. Shares closed trading at $5.06 on Friday, in a 52-week range of $4.38 to $8.20. The consensus price target is $5.36.

Is Facebook Inc Stock a Screaming Buy or a Portfolio Destroyer?

If I said in January that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) stock would be trading near $150, many investors would be backing up the truck. After all, it’s the premiere platform for advertising — who wouldn’t want to buy Facebook stock?

It’s easy to ask for a pullback in certain stocks or the market as a whole. But when you see the S&P 500 down 10% in 10 days like we witnessed in February or are staring at FB stock down 20% from its highs, pulling the “buy trigger” becomes a whole lot harder.

In that regard, is it time to buy FB stock?

I’m going out on a limb to say yes, it’s time to start a position. Whether you’ve been long since its $38 IPO and were looking for a pullback to buy or have been contemplating a fresh position in the social media juggernaut, 20% declines in Facebook stock don’t come around too often.

The fear with these types of situations is: How low will the pullback in Facebook stock last?

Sizing Up Facebook Stock

Facebook’s user data issue is a bad one. It’s drawing boycotts and advertiser pushback, while causing users to question the morals of the company. It’s got CEO Mark Zuckerberg heading to Capitol Hill to testify and it raises concern about potential regulations in this space.

It also raises questions about Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) and Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP). Some have reported that both Twitter and Snap have engaged in similar data-selling practices that Facebook has. Are they next to get significantly hit?

Perhaps, but so far the social media leader has been hit the hardest. At best, FB stock would have been looking at 5% decline. At worst, it will get pummeled like Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG). But that would require a decline of more than 66% or in Facebook’s case, a fall to $68. I can’t imagine a scenario where that plays out.

But what about a 30% fall to $136.50? Is a 40% decline to $117 in the cards?

Only because FB stock has fallen 20%, does a decline of 30% seem possible.

In the short-term, it’s hard to imagine much more pain. What we need to see is the business impact. Facebook still connects 2 billion people per month. It still has impressive daily and monthly active user growth. And ultimately, it still has impressive ad, revenue and earnings growth. If these metrics take a hit, that’s how Facebook stock could see major declines this year.

Trading FB Stock

There’s no way to put it nicely: the charts are not good. Now below the 50-day, 100-day and 200-day moving averages, the stock’s vital uptrend has been shattered. Seeing it below $155, what seems to be a notable support level, is also discouraging. While shares bounced Thursday, it’s no guarantee it will last beyond end-of-quarter trading.

Further, we’ve got the 50-day now below the 100-day, showing that intermediate trends are no longer bullish. If the 50-day moving average crosses below the 200-day, it will form what’s known as a “death cross,” a bearish technical setup. It shows that the longer term trend is no longer bullish.

So why the heck would we want to buy this thing? Buying FB stock is ultimately a bet that it’s business will not suffer catastrophic consequences. It will suffer to some degree, but this doesn’t change the fact that the Facebook platforms are the best way for advertisers to reach customers.

I wouldn’t go all-in on Facebook stock yet. But nibbling a starter position now for a longer-term investment is a bet that FB is still relevant in 6 months, 12 months and 24 months.

Valuing Facebook

Estimates still call for earnings to grow 36% this year and 21% in 2019. Revenue estimates call for 35.8% and 27% growth this year and next. Shares trade at just 17.2 times 2019 earnings estimates. Even if we haircut this year’s earnings estimates of $7.35 per share by 20% (down to $5.88) and cut 2019 estimates by 10% down to $8.01 per share, FB stock still only trades at 19 times 2019 estimates.

On an earnings basis, it’s still cheaper than SNAP, TWTR and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG). Heck, it’s even cheaper than The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO) and has a valuation in line with Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG).

For a company with this fat of margins — ~50% operating margins, ~40% profit margins — and this strong of growth, sub-20 times forward estimates is a good price for longer term investors.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2018

Baytex Energy (BTE) is a company that is highly leveraged to oil prices. With its large differentials for its Canadian oil production, its margins can change significantly with a more modest change in oil prices. For the time being though, the weaker Canadian dollar has offset much of effect of oil prices falling compared to a month ago.

Baytex is priced appropriately for the current oil strip, so upside versus its current share price depends on whether long-term oil prices go up from around $52. Although I believe that growing US production will make it difficult for oil prices to increase a huge amount from current levels, taking the over on $52 oil seems a reasonable proposition.

2017 At $50 Oil

If NYMEX oil averages $50 during 2017, it appears that Baytex would end up with approximately $733 million in revenue, including $8 million in positive hedge value. This compares with my previous estimate of $782 million in revenue at $55 oil.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2018: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    After a series of setbacks in its attempts to build new oil pipelines, Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) completed a transformation transaction to acquire U.S. natural gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group for $13 billion, which includes the assumption of debt. The key to that deal was that it increased the combined company’s near-term project pipeline to 23 billion Canadian dollars, which supports TransCanada’s ability to increase its dividend by 8% to 10% annually through 2020. After completing that deal, TransCanada made a bid to acquire all of the outstanding units that it did not own of affiliated MLP Columbia Pipeline Partners (NYSE:CPPL) in a transaction valued at $915 million. These acquisitions solidified TransCanada’s natural gas pipeline growth ambitions, enabling it to diversify away from oil pipelines.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    That includes pipeline companies like Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI), which already operates a pipeline transporting natural gas from Texas into Mexico, and master limited partnerships (MLPs) Energy Transfer Partners L.P. (NYSE: ETP) and TransCanada Corp.

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    In a number of articles recently, following the US recent revival and potential approval of the previously blocked Keystone XL pipeline, a number of estimates have been provided suggesting a pending boom for the US steel industry is on the horizon (and US steel stocks have reacted in kind). In fact, this optimism, we believe, peaked today when a report from one of our competitors was published claiming that, the keystone XL pipeline could increase line pipe demand by 14.7% for 2 years. The problem here, we believe, rests with the facts that: (a) TransCanada (TRP) has already taken, and paid for, the steel to build the Keystone XL pipeline (the steel currently sits in storage facilities in both Regina, Canada and Arkansas, United States), (b) neither US Steel (X; SELL), AK Steel, Steel Dynamics, or Nucor have the ability to make the specialized steel required for the miles of pipe associated with this project, to include both the thickness and pressure requirements, according to this article from Reuters, and (c) assuming some of the pipe does need replacement, this would likely come from international steel makers who are capable of producing the specialized steel (again, as highlighted in this Reuters article).

    Energy infrastructure companies ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) are both emerging from the energy market downturn as stronger entities. Each made smart acquisitions, with TransCanada buying U.S. gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group, while ONEOK is in the process of gobbling up its MLP,ONEOK Partners (NYSE:OKS). While these deals enhanced the growth profiles of both companies, TransCanada still stands out as the better buy for long-term income investors. Here’s why.

    Finally, shares of Winnebago Industries dropped 6%. The maker of recreational vehicles has been under pressure ever since rival Thor Industries (NYSE:THO) reported its most recent quarterly results earlier this week, and Thor’s story led shareholders to sell off that stock. Yet although Winnebago is in the same business as Thor, some investors think that it could succeed where Thor failed, especially because the Winnebago brand name is much more valuable and has greater customer recognition that many of its competitors’ offerings. Winnebago will have its own chance to report its financial results later this month, and although many investors seem to be betting against the RV maker, others believe that Winnebago could easily make its competitive advantage against Thor and other manufacturers clear with a solid performance this quarter.

    One of the largest projects is the Saddlehorn Pipeline, which Magellan is building with Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). Both Plains All American Pipeline and Magellan own 40% of the project, which puts their total investment at $230 million apiece. They expect the project to be fully operational early next year, which is noteworthy given its robust first-year economics. Magellan estimates that it will earn eight times EBITDA on the capital deployed, or roughly $28.8 million in annual EBITDA apiece for Magellan and Plains All American Pipeline on their investment.
