Investors went into the weekend trying to navigate a series of geopolitical and macroeconomic issues, but many market participants focused on the big plunge in the oil market, where crude prices dropped $3 per barrel to fall below the $68-per-barrel mark. Even with trading activity slow preceding the holiday weekend, good news sent shares of some companies higher. Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU), Shoe Carnival (NASDAQ:SCVL), and Quality Systems (NASDAQ:QSII) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

Retirement investors want sure things. There isn’t enough time to make up for stocks that just fall into the ground, never to return. So considering how awful energy has been for the past couple of years, it’s probably surprising to see “energy stocks” and “retirement” mentioned in the same vicinity.

Sustained low oil and natural gas prices have negatively impacted energy stocks. OK, that’s putting it mildly. Low prices have outright strangled some companies right out of business, and has made life miserable for the vast majority of the sector.

And considering many retirement investors were sucked in by the plentiful dividends in the energy sector, they know the pain. And they’re probably not too forgiving.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019: Foot Locker, Inc.(FL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    With retail earnings season pretty much over, one key takeaway is how many so-called “brick-and-mortar” stores have found ways to keep customers coming in the doors rather than simply pointing and clicking. Many retailers had very good same-store sales, and what that shows is the traffic is still there for them. The challenge for retailers now is converting traffic to buyers, and retailers appear to have gotten much more creative and much better at helping their clients. About 70 percent of specialty retailers—which are smaller, niche-type stores—beat Wall Street’s forecasts for the quarter, according to Bloomberg research, and the S&P 500 Specialty Retail Index has actually outperformed the S&P 500 Internet Index since mid-March. Strong results reported by specialty retailers like Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE: FL) and Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) last week have helped buttress the sector.

    Cirrus announced that the first product containing its new ANC chip last spring. In the most recent conference call, the company mentioned that it was in a new headset with a major OEM. A search looking for design breakdowns for Cirrus revealed two new products with Cirrus ANC inside. ABI Research reported finding the Cirrus ANC chip, 47L50C, inside replacing a chip from “Maxim MAX98730” The rest of the parts in the Studio 3 were the same as its predecessor Solo3. Beats increased the price on the Studio 3 by $50. ABI also found the 47L50C inside one of the new Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) products adding this statement, “Cirrus seems to be doing quite well in the ANC (Active noise cancellation) market as this is the second win we have seen (47L51b found in the Samsung ANC earbuds) in blooming ANC market.” There appear to be two new sets of earbuds from Samsung, a wired and a wireless. It is unclear to us which or perhaps both could have the new Cirrus chip inside. We know of at least three major brands with Cirrus ANC inside. The list continues to grow.

Source: ThinkstockUntil about 2008 or so, discussion about the future price of crude oil was directed by the concept of peak oil. That is, when does the world reach peak production, after which the price of crude will skyrocket. In less than a decade, the discussion is now focused on the concept of “peak demand,” the point at which global demand for crude begins to decline.

The recent Oil & Money conference in London sharpened the focus on peak demand. Saudi Arabia’s minister of energy and industry, Khalid Al-Falih, told conference attendees that cutbacks in capital spending on exploration, forced on the industry by low prices for the past twoyears, could mean that shortfalls in supply are coming.

    Finally, shares of CVR Energy fell 9%. The holding company agreed to exchange its stock to investors in related entity CVR Refining (NYSE:CVRR), accepting as many as 37.1 million units at a ratio of 0.6335 shares of CVR Energy for every unit of CVR Refining exchanged. In a release, CVR Energy said that “many CVR Refining unitholders may wish to hold their investment in the form of common stock rather than partnership interests” after recent tax reform legislation. But it’s unclear why CVR Energy would make an offer at a 25% premium rather than simply having CVR Refining convert to a corporate entity or use similar steps that wouldn’t adversely affect CVR Energy shareholders for the benefit of CVR Refining unitholders. CVR Refining finished the session 8% higher.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own For 2019

The flare-up in market volatility has left investors scratching their heads when it comes to the relative outperformance of the safest segment of the corporate bond universe over its riskiest.

With stocks coming under pressure this year, with the Dow
DJIA, -0.68%
and the S&P 500
SPX, -0.86%
struggling to reclaim their February all-time highs, bond buyers would be expected to turn their noses at high-yield issuers with burdensome debt loads and take shelter in the bonds of investment-grade firms, which carry more robust balance sheets. But instead, the two ends of the corporate debt market appear to have reversed their traditional roles, with investment-grade bonds struggling and high-yield debt, or junk, remaining at their lofty valuations.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own For 2019: Orbital ATK, Inc.(OA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Top 5 Gold Stocks To Watch For 2018

Squeezed by ever-expanding U.S. sanctions, Vladimir Putin says he wants to dump the dollar. His central bank has been doing just the opposite.

In comments to lawmakers on Tuesday after his inauguration for a record fourth term as president, Putin said a “break” from the U.S. currency is necessary to bolster Russia’s “economic sovereignty,” especially in light of recent penalties and what he called politically motivated restrictions on trade.

“The whole world can see that the dollar’s monopoly is precarious and dangerous for many,” he said. “Our gold and currency reserves are being diversified, and we’ll continue to do that further.”

The numbers tell a different story. According to the central bank’s latest data, the dollar’s share in its international reserves climbed to nearly 46 percent in 2017 from just over 40 percent the previous year. Meanwhile, the euro accounted for almost 22 percent, sliding from more than 32 percent in 2016 and as high as 43.8 percent in 2009. The stockpile was at $459.9 billion in April, the highest since 2014.

Top 5 Gold Stocks To Watch For 2018: Restoration Hardware Holdings Inc.(RH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Isaac Pino, CPA]

    While much has been said about upscale furniture retailer RH’s (NYSE:RH) soaring stock price recently, less attention has been paid to the story behind the company’s radical overhaul.CEO Gary Friedman is making some intriguing contrarian bets for RH, pursuing experiential stores in an industry that’s downsizing its bricks-and-mortar footprint. Meanwhile, Friedman’s embracing a membership model, physical catalogs, and a premium market at a time when most everyone else is slashing costs, running promotions, and scrambling to move online.In the company’s most recent conference call, Friedman shared his thoughts on the company’s business model, the retail industry’s herd mentality, and the habits and desires of furniture shoppers. Here are the three takeaways I found most interesting:

  • [By Isaac Pino, CPA]

    On the surface, upscale furniture retailer RH(NYSE:RH) seems to be doing a lot of things right. The company — formerly known as Restoration Hardware — has leaned into the upscale market, thereby differentiating its products from the competition. Its inspired storefronts are a far cry from cookie-cutter shopping malls, and a membership-based business model makes it less reliant on blowout sales.

  • [By Isaac Pino, CPA]

    More and more companies are embracing this model, including upscale furnishings retailer RH(NYSE:RH). RH charges $100 for members to receive a 25% discount on regular-price items and a handful of other unique perks. It’s simple, and customers may find it pays for itself quickly given the sticker price of RH’s products. Perhaps that’s why customers have embraced it: RH recently noted after only two years, 95% of its core business stems from its members.
