Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

for路ev路er — for all future time; for always — Oxford Living Dictionaries

I thought I would address the most obvious question you might have about the headline of this article first. What do I mean by forever? To be honest, I don’t think there’s any stock I would simply buy and never look at again. However, as Warren Buffett noted in the 1988 Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letter, “When we own portions of outstanding businesses with outstanding managements, our favorite holding period is forever.”

Some have interpreted this to mean that Buffett would neversell stocks, but that simply isn’t the case. He has since clarified his famous statement, saying that he will sell stocks under certain conditions including “if we needed money for something else,” or “we don’t think their competitive advantage is as strong as we thought it was when we initially made the decision.”

Still, there are some companies that are leaders in their respective industries and have so much going for them that holding for the ultra-long term seems reasonable. That’s why I plan to hold Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG) for a very long time, perhaps “forever.”

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now: Chevron Corporation(CVX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While the company is early in the sales process, it has reportedly received several multibillion-dollar bids from big-oil giants including BP (NYSE:BP), Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B), and Chevron (NYSE:CVX). Given the size of the portfolio and the bidders, the sales process could have an impact on the oil patch going forward.

    There are several parts of the value chain that create natural and organic goods:

    Individual organic farmers, who you largely cannot invest in. Producers of organic foods, who take farmer’s goods and combine them for consumption. This includes players likeHain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN),SunOpta, andLifeway Foods. Grocers with a focus on natural and organic goods, which originally includedWhole Foods (now owned by Amazon),Sprouts Farmers Market (NASDAQ:SFM), andNatural Grocers — what I refer to as “pure-play,” which are grocers with a sole focus on organic. But the list now includes big names likeKroger(NYSE:KR),Costco(NASDAQ:COST), andWalmart(NYSE:WMT). Distributors specializing in natural and organic food, primarilyUnited Natural Foods.

    When the Great Recession hit, many of these pure-play natural and organic companies (read: not Costco, Walmart, or Kroger) were devastated. Consumers were pinching pennies and unwilling to pay the extra money for organic fruits.

    The membership model is not a new concept, but it’s one that has been dramatically underutilized by retail. The low-price warehouseCostco (NASDAQ:COST), for example, has been crushing the market’s returns for 30-plus years with its simple membership club formula. And if you need more evidence of Costco’s merits, Warren Buffett’s investing sidekick Charlie Munger has called it “one of the most admirable capitalistic institutions in the world.”

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    That is only some of its problems, which are topped by the fact that too many things Lowe’s sells can be bought elsewhere, from Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) to Costco Wholesale Corp. (NASDAQ: COST), but predominantly Home Depot. Lowe’s has no path to differentiation. That leaves what it charges customers as the key to its success. Cutting prices is usually not a winning strategy for a public company, though.

Hot Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

California’s Energy Commission has officially made solar mandatory for new homes built after 2020. This gives the solar industry a new guaranteed market of about 222 megawatts (MW) per year, according to GTM Research (now Wood Mackenzie, a subsidiary of Verisk Analytics). In other words, California’s new home construction alone could account for about 10% of all of the residential solar installed in the U.S., based on 2017 installation levels.

Recent updates to GTM Research’s projections show an incremental benefit for the residential solar industry of about 650 MW between 2020 and 2023, which could be worth $2 billion for the industry. That should be great for the fortunes of solar companies with exposure to the state.

Why this mandate is a big deal

New homes were always more likely to have solar than old homes in California, but only about 20% of new homes actually had solar installed. With 75,000 to 100,000 new homes being built each year, there could be as much as 400 MW of incremental demand growth, assuming an average solar system size of 5 kW.

    The historic and so far successful energy reform of Mexico apparently faces risks if the leading candidate for presidency, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador wins the elections to be held on Jul 1. After almost eight long decades of state management, Mexico opened its energy market to foreign investors through five- year (2015-2019), two rounds per annum tender plans, which enabled the country to draw investment from oil-mammoths like Royal Dutch Shell PLC (NYSE: RDS-A), Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX), BP p.l.c. (NYSE: BP) and others. It effectively ended the reign of the state-run oil producer Petroleós Mexicanos (Pemex) in Mexico.

Upcoming Earnings: Industrial Conglomerate GE Reports Friday Morning

Industrial conglomerate General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) is scheduled to report earnings before market open on Friday, Apr. 20.

CEO John Flannery has faced plenty of challenges since he took over in August 2017, working to streamline the massive company and improve transparency. In recent quarters, GE’s issues have been numerous and well publicized.

In the time that Flannery has been at the helm, GE has halved its dividend; it took a surprise $6.2 billion after-tax charge in Q4 2017 related to GE Capital’s insurance portfolio, while adding $15 billion to its reserves  for future payouts over the next seven years; and recently restated 2016 and 2017 financials, reducing earnings by $0.30 per share. The restated financials also included adjustments related to pensions, cash flows and income taxes.

Clearly, the company’s turnaround efforts, which include a multi-year plan to improve GE Power as well as exiting more than $20 billion worth of business over the next several years, are going to take time.

There have been some signs of progress from Flannery’s plan so far. When GE reported Q4 2017 results, it generated $9.7 billion in adjusted cash flow from operating activities for fiscal 2017, compared to guidance of $7 billion.

Since announcing plans to exit $20 billion in business, it has sold its industrial solution business in a $2.6 billion deal to ABB (ABB) and recently announced a $1.05 billion deal to sell healthcare IT businesses to private equity firm Veritas.  And Bloomberg reported that several companies are considering a bid for GE’s Jenbacher unit for more than $3 billion.

On tomorrow’s calls, analysts are likely to be digging in to get a better idea of restructuring progress.

GE Earnings

For Q1 2018, GE is expected to report adjusted EPS of $0.11 on revenue of $27.88 billion, according to third-party consensus estimates. In Q4 2017, revenue missed estimates, coming in at $31.4 billion versus expectations for $32.7 billion, and earnings also came up short by a penny at $0.27 per share after removing charges and one-time items.

GE previously lowered its earnings guidance for all of fiscal 2018 to a range of $1.00 to $1.07, but analysts seem to think that’s a little optimistic given they have an average estimate of $0.95. Out of 17 analyst ratings, earnings estimates range from $0.87 to $1.04 per share.
