Its legacy business is expected to continue shrinking, and it has paid out more in dividends than it has earned in profits for years. Oh, and there’s even more. Its success is almost entirely reliant on something few companies ever get right: successfully integrating a major acquisition while also delivering cost savings and future growth.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Your approach to picking stocks is pretty simple if you’re in your 70s. There are three basic rules.

The first two rules are the same as Warren Buffett’s two rules of investing:

Rule No. 1: Never lose money. Rule No. 2: Don’t forget rule No. 1.

Investors in their 70s will probably want to add rule No. 3: Receive a dependable income from dividends.

Your best way to abide by all three of these rules is to find stocks with solid business models built for the long run that pay out steady dividends. Three stocks that I think meet those criteria are Iron Mountain (NYSE:IRM), Welltower (NYSE:WELL), and Pfizer (NYSE:PFE). Here’s why you should consider buying these three stocks if you’re in your 70s.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE: CTL) is a telecom stock that pays its investors more than just a high dividend yield to own the stock. It’s a crazy-high yield of over 14%. Telecom stocks that pay such yields are often shunned by analysts because the earnings and cash flows are hard to model, and it’s increasingly harder to know where the future earnings will come from to continually support those dividends.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

    Thursday continued the stock market’s recent rally, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average enjoying another triple-digit gain and certain other major benchmarks starting to approach record levels.

Some individual companies’ stocks saw outsize gains. Spotify Technology (NYSE:SPOT), CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), and ARMO BioSciences (NASDAQ:ARMO) were among the best performers on the day.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Shipbuilding and services specialistHuntington Ingalls (NYSE:HII) was spun off from Northup Grumman in early 2011. General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) is roughly six times larger and offers a far more diversified list of products and services that includes submarines, aircraft, and armored vehicles, among other things. Both, however, provide key products and services to the U.S. military. That’s normally a fairly consistent business driven by large and often very long contracts. With a supportive administration in the White House, it would seem like now is a good time to take a look at this pair of stocks. But which of these two military-industrial companies is a better buy?

Hot Undervalued Stocks For 2019

Russ Kaplan is a leading money manager with a value-oriented and contrarian approach to very long-term investing; here’s a look at his top growth idea for the coming year.

One of the few places of value in this market is the home building stocks and our Top Pick for growth-oriented investors is D. R. Horton (DHI), which is a home building stock.

D.R. Horton is more than just a homebuilder, however. Horton is involved in all aspects of the realty area. It also owns lots of property and is into title insurance.

Yes, mortgage rates have gone up, but that is already reflected in the price of the stock, which has fallen from $38 to a recent price is the $28 range. I can see it going back to $38 in the near future.

With a price/earnings ratio of 12, it is very undervalued from the market average, which is currently around 22.

There really is a D. R. Horton and he owns 7% of the company. This is not a stock for those looking for income. It only pays a little over 1%.

    Health insurance giant UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) has done an admirable job of navigating the ever-changing landscape of healthcare reform over the past several years. The company was slow to embrace the health insurance exchanges set out in the Affordable Care Act, and that helped leave UnitedHealth less vulnerable when the Trump administration sought to repeal and replace Obamacare. Even as many focused on the positives of tax reform, UnitedHealth had to find ways to navigate the return of the excise tax on health insurance premiums in 2018 without seeing a material negative impact to its bottom line.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2018

Want to learn how to read stock charts? 

Well, we called in Bruce Kamich, our resident Chart Professor, to help you learn that and more.

Because when it comes to investing in stocks, it is important that you are able to perform your own  technical analysis of some stock charts.

Technical analysis sounds wonky but it’s basically financial analysis that uses patterns to identify trends and make educated predictions. And that’s exactly what the Chart Professor does with his charts every day.

He walked us through four basic charts:

Line — The simplest chart because it only requires one piece of data: the stock’s last price.  So it’s basically like connect the dots but leaves out important info all-time highs, etc…. Bar — Three prices are included here: the stock’s high price, low price and its closing price of the day or week are all included in each of the individual bars line that make up this chart. Candlestick — Four prices included here: the open, the high the low and the close all make up the little rectangle shape on this chart.  relation to the open and the close — if we close below the opening — bearish and the   .  If we close above the open price, bullish  ed or pink is bearish white is bullish —  Point and Figure — The oldest chart in U.S., it dates back to 1880’s and  And a mark only is made on this chart when the stock moves a predetermined price.  In the chart in this video, each X represents a 10 points move up. A 0 notes a reaction to the move.

And then talked about the three things you need to do with each of those charts:

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, machinery, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

    Maxfield: I think we mixed up some numbers. Theirrevenue as a percent of assets is4.92%, which is the highest in its peer group, and itspeer group are the really large, too-big-to-fail banks,JPMorgan Chase(NYSE: JPM), Citigroup(NYSE: C), Bank of America(NYSE: BAC), Wells Fargo(NYSE: WFC), plusother large regional banks. So that’s the largestwith one exception, and that isCapital One(NYSE: COF). The reason that Capital One’srevenue is so high as a percentage of assets is because a very largeportion of its loan portfolioconsists of credit card loans, and those yield,as everybody knows, a lot more than, say, a homemortgage does. So its revenue as a percent of assets isthe top in its peer group. But then,if you translate that over intoprofitability,that’s where that 1.1% return on assets is. When you’retalking about profitability for banks, there’stwo measures that you want to look at: yourreturn on assets andyour return on equity. Return on assets is basically yourunlevered profitability. Your return on equity is your leveredprofitability. Here’s the interesting thing about PNC, andthis is one of the reasons that it doesn’t pop up a lot wheninvestors are looking for the top-performing banks — it’s because theirreturn on common equity last year was8.58%. When you’relooking for a 10% return on equity, you think, that’sactually meaningfully below that standard industry benchmark that you want to see. But the reason that it’s below,as we see with its good return on assets,is just because it’s not very levered,which means it’s a very safe bank that’sstill earning a lot of money if you look at it on a levered basis.
