Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

On the lookout for safe dividends? (Who isn’t, right?)

These days, you generally have three options: large-cap stocks with long dividend histories, municipal bonds and US Treasuries.

Treasuries are considered the safest of that group, and large-cap stocks the riskiest, but they’re still much safer than plenty of other investments, such as small caps and junk bonds.

I’ll show you two low-risk investments that are great buys now in a moment. But first, I want to tell you why recent events have called the safety of some of the options I just named into question.

Let’s start by looking at the following chart:

“Safe” Assets Turn Volatile

First, note how the iShares S&P National AMT-Free Municipal Bond Fund (MUB), a good proxy for municipal bonds as a whole, is the least volatile of the three funds shown above. But right now, it faces a steep downturn relative to its earlier stability.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Many Chinese growth stocks have started bouncing back, but the same can’t be said aboutNetEase (NASDAQ:NTES). The Chinese online gaming pioneer hit another 52-week low earlier this month, and it’s trading nearly 30% below the all-time highs it hit late last year.

    Investors in NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) have generally seen their company benefit from a strong environment in the Chinese video game industry. Impressive growth in revenue and profits in past years helped fuel impressive gains for NetEase shares, and the appetite for more from consumers in China and elsewhere has seemed insatiable. Yet in every growth stock’s experience, a company eventually starts to face challenges in sustaining growth, and the key question becomes what that company does to restart its growth engines.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2019

Last week, I warned you to watch out for the lie about stocks.
 
This week, I want to warn you about the interest-rates lie…
 
Most people think interest rates are about to go dramatically higher.
 
But they aren't going to go dramatically higher. They CAN'T go dramatically higher.
 
Even the Federal Reserve – which recently raised short-term interest rates to 1.50%-1.75% – said in late March that it will raise short-term interest rates to 3.4% by 2020.
 
The Fed is lying…
 
It can't possibly raise interest rates that high. It would cause the next Great Recession.
 
I understand why the Fed wants to raise interest rates. It wants to "normalize" interest rates to what we are used to… It wants to have the ability to lower them if the economy starts to struggle again.
