Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: Discovery Communications, Inc.(DISCB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCB) (NASDAQ:DISCK) has traded very cheaply over the past few years. As more and more U.S. consumers “cut the cord” on the traditional cable bundle, Discovery’s channels (which now include all Scripps Networks Interactive channels) have seen their subscriber counts decline. That, combined with the high debt load incurred for the company’s 2017 acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive, sent investors running for the hills last year. In 2017, the company’s three share classes dropped from roughly 10% to roughly 21%.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    You might think Discovery Inc.’s (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCK) (NASDAQ:DISCB) stations primarily feature nature videos and celebrity cooks, but did you know it’s actually becoming a player on the international sports scene? While known for its namesake Discovery Channel and documentary brands such as The Learning Channel, HGTV, and the Food Network, Discovery has actually been in the sports business since 2012, when it first acquired a minority stake in European sports channel Eurosport. Discovery was apparently pleased enough with the channel’s progress to buy 100% of Eurosport in July 2015, and that year, Eurosport won the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in Europe from 2018-2022.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Discovery (NASDAQ:DISCB) announced its quarterly earnings results on Tuesday.

Best Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

Retail giant Walmart (NYSE:WMT) isn’t too happy about the Trump administration enacting tariffs on Chinese imports and potential buyers of Walmart stock wonder how bad things could get.

Walmart recently wrote a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, in which the company detailed how expanded tariffs on Chinese imports would adversely impact the retailer, its customers, and the U.S. economy. The short of it: tariffs will force Walmart to raise prices, which could have a negative affect on consumers, consumer spending, and U.S. economic activity.

If tariffs seem like a negative for Walmart stock, it’s because they are. Tariffs mean either Walmart has to absorb higher costs and operate at lower margins, or they have to raise prices. Walmart has made it clear that they will raise prices. Walmart, whose biggest value props are all-in-one convenience and “Everyday Low Prices,”stands to lose a sizable amount of traffic if prices go up.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Tariffs are overshadowing the start of earnings season. This week, a variety of Wall Street banks, consumer goods, and airline companies report for the previous quarter. While profits are expected to remain strong, the outlook for the rest of the year is expected to take into account the impact of tariffs on global trade. This is likely to weigh on investor sentiment. According to a report from real estate giant REIS Inc., mall vacancies have hit a six-year high at 8.6% last quarter. The fall of brick-and-mortar stores has been fueled by the rise of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), which continues to see its stock surge to new highs. It’s not too late to get in on Amazon at a fraction of the cost of today’s shares. We’ll show you how… right here. Speaking of Amazon, the e-commerce giant recently made a big splash in the pharmacy benefits business after its purchase of online benefits provider PillPack. This purchase has many analysts convinced that Amazon is about to do to pharmacies what it has done to malls over the last decade. And while Amazon is going to be a major player in the drug-delivery business in the future, there is one stock that is going to stave off any further attack from Amazon and the delivery business. Best of all, this stock has an incredible VQScore, and it’s trading at a huge discount.

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news. The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Own Right Now

Like many businesses, debt collection is a cyclical industry, and as a major player in that industry, PRA Group (NASDAQ:PRAA) is subject to the ups and downs of the economy. During good times, there aren’t as many nonperforming loans for PRA Group to collect on. Only when times get tough do default rates move higher, spurring many creditors to turn their collections over to PRA.

Coming into Wednesday’s first-quarter financial report, PRA Group investors were prepared for declines in earnings and almost no sales growth. The debt collection specialist took the expected bottom-line hit, but rising revenue was encouraging for those looking for signs of strength from the company.

PRA Group starts 2018 strong

PRA Group’s first-quarter results were mixed. The company did well on the revenue front, seeing its top line rise 8% to $223.2 million. Net income attributable to PRA shareholders dropped more than 55% to $21.1 million, but much of that was due to a one-time gain in the year-ago quarter, and earnings per share of $0.47 were still far better than the consensus forecast among investors for just $0.35 per share.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

President Trump needs a new director for his National Economic Council after Gary Cohn resigned.

There’s one candidate in the mix that may really please investors: Chris Liddell, who has served as chief financial officer for two blue chip American companies, GM (GM) and Microsoft (MSFT)

Liddell, like the former Goldman Sachs (GS) executive Cohn, has a background in crunching numbers and dealing with Wall Street.

The New York Times first reported on Saturday that Liddell was the “top contender” to replace Cohn. A senior White House official later confirmed to CNN that Liddell is a “possibility” as a replacement for Cohn. Liddell currently serves in the White House as the director of strategic initiatives, working closely with Jared Kushner.

Ivan Feinseth, director of research and chief investment officer at Tigress Financial Partners, said he did not think an ethics complaint filed against Liddell last year because of meetings he held at the White House with executives of companies that he owned stocks in would be a major issue either.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now: Insys Therapeutics, Inc.(INSY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Speights]

    In October 2017, I predicted that Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) could be the biggest comeback story of 2018.For a while, it looked like I was on the right track. Insys stock soared in the fourth quarter of 2017. By early January, it was one of the hottest marijuana stocks on the market. Then the momentum evaporated.

    Abbvie Inc. (ABBV) , for example, is generally just a pharmaceutical stock. However, the company also marketed Marinol, an FDA-approved synthetic cannabinoid meant to help nausea and vomiting in cancer and AIDS patients. INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (INSY) is a pharmaceutical company that got approval from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for a synthetic cannabis – despite having donated to anti-marijuana advocacy groups in the past.

    Some people picture rows of cannabis plants growing in a greenhouse when they think of marijuana stocks. While that’s an appropriate image to have in mind for many marijuana stocks, it’s a different story for others. 22nd Century Group (NYSEMKT:XXII) and Insys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY) are good examples.

    Others, like cannabis biotech firm Insys Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: INSY), are direct plays in marijuana businesses that offer investors the opportunity for incredibly fast gains.

    Yet in spite of this momentum, drug developer Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) has been an absolute train wreck. Insys offers a broad spectrum of therapies in its product portfolio and pipeline, but it gets its association with “marijuana stocks” through its Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of Syndros, a liquid dronabinol solution — i.e., a synthetic form of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant — designed to treat chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, as well as anorexia associated with AIDS. It also has other cannabidiol-based products in development in its pipeline.

    China imported 55 million gallons of American ethanol from November 2017 to the end of February 2018. It could be just the beginning.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now: Hertz Global Holdings Inc(HTZ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Shares of Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) were down 17 percent to $18.505 after the company reported a wider-than-expected loss for its first quarter.

    Wall Street had another good session on Tuesday, with favorable earnings reports from some of the nation’s most successful technology companies helping to lift major benchmarks by 1% or more. Investors haven’t forgotten about some of the potential pitfalls that could derail the recovery, including both geopolitical and macroeconomic concerns. Yet traders seem to want to see the market test its all-time highs before deciding whether the correction could turn into a full-fledged bear market reversal. Some individual stocks, however, missed out on the good times. GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Apellis Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:APLS), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
