Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019

Losing CEO Sergio Marchionne, who created Fiat Chrysler out of scraps and led it to unexpected financial and sales success, is a serious blow, but FCA is well positioned.

Key points:

The highly profitable Jeep Wrangler is successfully launched and on sale.The equally important Ram 1500 pickup should be hitting dealerships in meaningful numbers shortly.A plan for investment and strategy through 2021 is in place.The search for a new CEO was already underway.FCA’s finances are more secure than anyone expected.Fiat Chrysler is an attractive partner for other global automakers.

“Sergio planned to retire in 2019, so really, this just fast-forwards the process,” AutoPacific analyst Dave Sullivan said.

The boards of FCA, Ferrari and CNH — the three Fiat Group companies Marchionne leads — huddled Saturday in the company’s traditional home of Turin, Italy, and expected to announce a plan by early afternoon U.S. time.

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: General Motors Company(GM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Rosevear]

    Priestley: Recently, we’ve seen a lot of headlines around Ford. A couple of my favorites: “Ford Is Basically Giving Up on The U.S. Car Business, and GM (NYSE:GM) Is Not Far Behind.” Second favorite: “Ford to Kill Fusion, Taurus and Fiesta Cars to Make Way for More SUVs.” We’ve seen a huge amount of attention on Ford’s plan to reduce its passenger car lineup and refocus on its larger vehicles, which is all part of this trend toward SUVs, pickups, and crossovers that we’ve seen in the U.S. and we’ve actually talked about on this show before. 

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    Ford’s shares have been banged like a drum in the past year. It is up 7% to $12, while the S&P 500 is up 25% over the same period and larger rival General Motors Co.’s (NYSE: GM) share is up 23%. Most of Ford’s performance has been put at the feet of new CEO James Hackett, who has been chief executive since last May. Investors liked his two predecessors, Mark Fields and Alan Mulally, better. Hackett has laid out plans to cut legacy costs and advance Ford’s technology, but Wall Street has not been impressed.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2019

Investors remain reluctant to give NuVasive (NUVA) much benefit of the doubt, and based upon the company’s recent performance, I can’t say I blame them. Although I wrote back in January that I thought it would take time for the company to rebuild investor confidence, I’m still surprised to see the nearly 10% drop in the share price over that period, while Globus Medical (GMED) has shot up nearly 20% and K2M (KTWO) has risen close to 10%.

There are a lot of issues with NuVasive right now, including a fairly spotty history of earnings quality, worries about competitors poaching away reps, and signs that NuVasive’s new products aren’t producing the same growth leverage as before. What’s more, as NuVasive has grown to become a bigger player in the spine market, it’s harder and harder for the company to separate itself from the challenges in the market.

Valuation is tricky. On a cash flow basis, the expected return isn’t as high as I’d like to see given the risks. On the other hand, med-tech doesn’t often trade on cash flow and the shares do look undervalued, perhaps significantly so, on a EV/revenue basis. There’s some appeal here as a turnaround story, but NuVasive will be granted little quarter or patience by the Street if results don’t start meaningfully improving.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2019: Miller Industries, Inc.(MLR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Media coverage about Miller Industries (NYSE:MLR) has been trending somewhat negative this week, Accern Sentiment reports. The research firm ranks the sentiment of news coverage by analyzing more than twenty million blog and news sources in real-time. Accern ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of negative one to one, with scores nearest to one being the most favorable. Miller Industries earned a daily sentiment score of -0.09 on Accern’s scale. Accern also assigned news headlines about the auto parts company an impact score of 46.4626409572006 out of 100, meaning that recent news coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an effect on the stock’s share price in the next few days.

    Meanwhile, the return multiples for many of the projects under development by Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) are in the six- to eight-times EBITDA range. Because of that, the $1.7 billion of expansion projects Magellan currently has underway only will generate about $250 million in incidental EBITDA. That’s partially why Magellan Midstream expects to grow its payout at a slower pace of 8% this year and a 5% to 8% annual rate in 2019 and 2020, even though it plans on paying out the same percentage of its cash flow as ONEOK.

    That means pipelines are equally busy carrying all that raw crude into these refineries and then carrying out gasoline, diesel and other finished products.

Best Gold Stocks To Own Right Now: Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACBFF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Not too far behind Canopy Growth is Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF), which has grown every which way over the past year, and is on track to deliver more than 430,000 kilograms in fully funded capacity.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Even Canadian marijuana stocks that don’t have significant U.S. ties received a boost. The share prices of the two largest Canadian marijuana growers by market cap, Canopy Growth (NASDAQOTH:TWMJF) and Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF), rose 7% and 8%, respectively.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    It just so happens that one of Canada’s top two players in the cannabis industry, Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF), reported its third-quarter operating results on May 8 and updated investors on what to expect going forward. Given its importance to the domestic Canadian pot industry — the company expects to generate 430,000 kilograms of cannabis a year at full capacity — it pays to keep tabs on Aurora’s growth and how its projects are progressing. That said, here are the 10 things you should know about Aurora Cannabis’ Q3 report.

  • [By ]

    What are the risks? First off, the Cannabis market in Canada is already competitive, and it’s the fifth largest company behind the likes of Canopy (OTCPK:TWMJF), Aurora (OTCQX:ACBFF), Aphria (OTCQB:APHQF), Medreleaf (OTCPK:MEDFF), and Cronos (OTC:CRON). What’s more, there are approximately 228 million fully diluted shares, selling at $3.16/share ($4.04/share $CAD), and the company generated $CAD4.09mm in 2017 revenues. That’s quite a premium, and Hydropothecary Corp. trades expensively at a 225x sales multiple. Caveat emptor.

  • [By ]

    As we discussed the topic extensively in “The Complete Cannabis Guide #1: Production Cost”, Cronos reported its production cost similar to Aphria which includes overhead allocation and amortization. Other companies such as Canopy (OTCPK:TWMJF) and Aurora (OTCQX:ACBFF) report cash production cost which excludes non-cash costs such as amortization. Production cost was $2.18 per gram during the quarter, a very high number among the large peers. For reference Canopy reported production costs of $1.03 and Aphria reported $1.45 for its most recent quarter. The higher production cost was due to Cronos operating mostly indoor facilities compared to greenhouses. The greenhouse at Peace Naturals is very small with just 1,500 kg entering production during the second quarter, which should help bring down the production cost. Overall, Cronos is not and does not expect to become a low-cost producer, which is a concern especially given that the company has had to sell to the wholesale market for lower prices.
