Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

In the debate between growth and value, some may argue value can prevail.

After all, “value” stocks typically boast low price-earnings ratios and other traditional assessment metrics, often looked upon as undervalued relative to its underlying fundamentals. “Growth” stocks are often considered those whose earnings are expected to increase at an above-average rate but don’t necessarily boast the same strong fundamental backdrop.

Chad Morganlander, portfolio manager with Washington Crossing Advisors, recently went overweight value stocks over growth stocks. Here are his reasons why.

Though earnings are coming in quite nicely for growth stocks this quarter, valuations are stretched.

Outsized gains in technology shares, specifically, reduce the relative attractiveness of growth over value at this juncture.

Best Stocks To Own For 2019

Social Security provides critical benefits to more than 50 million people a year; almost 170 million workers contribute a chunk of their paycheck, to the tune of $900 billion annually, to keep those benefits flowing. You’d think with all the people and money involved that we’d all understand exactly how the program works.

Not so. The complexity of the system, its evolution and a shift in demographics that threatens its solvency have created confusion over what Social Security can and will deliver . . . and even whether it will continue to exist. Here are eight of the most common myths and misconceptions, along with explanations that set the record straight.

At the same time, Nucor is benefiting from some reallysmart recent investments.

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks For 2019

China’s first big jetliner just passed a crucial test that will take the country a step closer to becoming one of the world’s elite large airline makers.

The C919 airliner, which is produced by the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, or Comac, finished its final ground trial on Sunday in Shanghai.

Test pilots sped the C919 down the runway at Pudong International Airport, lifting the nose of the jet into the air and slamming on the brakes.

Before the airplane could make its maiden flight — expected before the end of May — the pilots had to demonstrate the jet can safely stop on the runway in case something goes wrong.

The 168-seat C919 is roughly the same size as Airbus’s A320 and Boeing’s 737-800, which are the most popular airliners in the world.

From the outside, China’s new airliner looks familiar. Its design is a hybrid of western aerospace companies and Chinese industry, and its engines are nearly identical to those on the newest Airbus models.

Hot Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

We spend most of our working lives contributing money to retirement accounts but what about taking it out in retirement? If you have pre-tax, Roth, and taxable accounts, how much should you withdraw from each one? Here are some things to consider:

1) How much can you safely withdraw? The safest option is to only withdraw earnings and not touch any of the principal but at current dividend yields and interest rates, don’t expect to get much more than about 2% of your portfolio. That’s probably not enough for most people and that number can fluctuate and may not keep pace with inflation in the long term.

The traditional rule of thumb is that you can safely withdraw about 4% of the initial value of a diversified portfolio and increase that amount with inflation for about 30 years. However, the rule was developed during the 1990s when interest rates were higher and many financial experts (including the financial planner who created it) are concerned that the rule is now obsolete. It also doesn’t take into account that you may have to withdraw larger amounts while you still have a mortgage or before you start collecting pension and Social Security benefits so a steady withdrawal rate may not make sense.

Since you own part of the companies in which you are investing, and thus have a right to a portion of the earnings, it only makes sense that you should expect a piece of the action via a dividend payment.
