Best Financial Stocks To Watch For 2019

Carbo Ceramics (CRR) has had a rough couple of years. First commodity prices declined. This limited new drilling activity. Then operators began to take a far shorter view of well life. The focus on payback and some minimal return in exchange for premature proppant crushing has taken precedence. The continuing large production improvements continue to obscure the need for expensive ceramic proppant. So the company has launched several new product lines as its cash flow dried up. Its once proud balance sheet in tatters with some actual long term debt. So along comes the Wilks Brothers with a lot of cash and a deal for the company. This deal will probably save it from the predicted extinction that Mr. Market had it mind.

Two directors had previously loaned the company $25 million. Later the company obtained (click on 2016 3rd quarter 10-Q) a term loan. But this put management in the position of financing the launch and development of a lot of new products while paying back a term loan. Since cash flow had dried up from the collapse of the ceramic proppant market, this financing arrangement was definitely not acceptable. The new products could have failed from a lack of sufficient financial support.

Best Financial Stocks To Watch For 2019

Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Sanmina looks to recover

Shares of Sanmina climbed more than 14% after the electronics manufacturing services company reported its fiscal second-quarter financial results. Sanmina’s revenue was flat, and adjusted net income actually fell by about a third compared to the prior-year period, but the performance was still better than the company and its investors had expected. More importantly, executives had encouraging things to say about Sanmina’s near-term future, pointing to new initiatives that could help push the company forward more aggressively during the remainder of the fiscal year. If successful, Sanmina is likely to see the positive impacts in its share price and business results.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market had a tumultuous session on Wednesday, as major benchmarks started the day weak but bounced back in the afternoon. Investors weren’t happy with the current state of geopolitical uncertainty, with trade disputes threatening to become larger problems than ever. But the release of the minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy committee convinced many that the central bank will be slow to do lasting damage to the economic expansion, remaining measured in the pace of its interest rate increases. Moreover, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    As a case in point, consider BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), which is currently paying out an extrapolated $5.10 a year, based on the $1.275 per share it divvied out in April. This is good enough for a better than 17% annual yield, albeit it should be noted that the Trust’s payout differs each quarter depending on its royalty revenue and cash earnings.
