Hot Stocks To Invest In 2019

Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner spends a lot of time focused on helping us all invest better, and his not-so-secret goal underneath that is to help us all live better. That’s why he began the Rule Breaker Investing podcast’s “Authors in August” theme with a couple of top-notch nonfiction writers: entrepreneur and marketing maven Seth Godin and gatherings guru Priya Parker. But sometimes, we all really need a book that transports us rather than teaches us.

So for this episode, David sits down with Amor Towle, author of one of his recent favorites, the enchanting A Gentleman in Moscow. It will be a wide-ranging discussion on the craft of writing, the art of story, the value of setting restrictions on where your creativity can take you, and more. Whether you’ve read Towle’s novel or not — if not, you may want to snag it for some late-summer beach reading — you should enjoy their talk.

A full transcript follows the video.

Best Gold Stocks To Invest In Right Now

A number of years ago, Warren Buffett referred to derivatives as “financial weapons of mass destruction.” Since then, Wall Street has tried to pooh-pooh this description, but the facts speak for themselves.

See Also: 7 Best Dividend Stocks for a Rocky Market

What is a derivative? Basically, it’s a bet couched as a complex financial instrument. Investopedia defines a derivative as “a security with a price that is dependent upon or derived from one or more underlying assets.” More simply put, two institutions, usually banks, bet on the direction of an underlying asset, which might be stocks, bonds, interest rates, gold, currencies or indexes. For a more entertaining if depressing explanation, see the movie “The Big Short.”

Initially, derivatives were a hedge on a position held by the bank. For example, if a bank had a large portfolio of corporate debt, the portfolio manager might protect that position by using derivatives to take an opposite position, thereby hedging the holdings.

    Servicemaster Global (NYSE:SERV) had its buy rating reiterated by analysts at William Blair.

    Stryker (NYSE:SYK) had its hold rating reissued by analysts at Needham & Company LLC. The analysts wrote, “SYK is acquiring Invuity (IVTY) for $7.40 per share (a 29% premium) or ~$190M of cash which is 3.4x consensus 2019E sales (vs. 6.4x EV/2019E sales for its medical supplies peers). IVTY makes disposable lighted instruments which increase visibility during minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures. We believe IVTY fits well with SYK’s Instruments business and note that IVTY’s products are applicable to a large number of surgical procedures. While the deal may be slightly dilutive in 2019, we believe that SYK can absorb this and still deliver on its 9%+ EPS growth target. And the deal should start to become increasingly accretive in 2020 and beyond.””

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

Doug Hughes focuses on lesser-known, small cap regional banks; the editor of Bank Newsletter looks for banks that operate in attractive regional markets, often ones that would be attractive acquisition targets.

AvidBank Holdings (AVBH) has the fastest growth of any bank out there and yet is still one of the safest with almost no bad loans, and a great, great market area in Palo Alto, California.

Management knows what it is doing and they will likely sell within 3 years. Earnings power is $3.00 a share by 2018. This is a great bank that is operating in great markets.

I consider the shares to be very safe, make it a top holding in the current environment.

With rates going up and most large regionals banks up 30% or more recently a deal price would now have to be at least 2.5 times book or $32 a share.

In my view, this stock has almost zero downside risk in an otherwise high-risk market. Buy now and sleep well. I consider the stock to have an excellent risk-reward ratio.
