Top 10 Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019

What happened

Shares of Owens-Illinois Inc. (NYSE:OI) jumped 9.9% on Friday after activist investor Atlantic Investment Management called for the glass-container specialist to take a number of actions to maximize shareholder value.

According to an SEC filing today, Atlantic has sent a letter to Owens-Illinois management urging them to hire a financial advisor to explore the sale of their European business, arguing that “there is substantial upside to OI’s share price on a sum-of-the-parts basis.”

Then, Atlantic says, OI should use those proceeds to repurchase at least $1 billion in shares and pay down $2 billion or more in debt. Finally, it argues that OI should initiate a dividend of $0.15 per quarter and allocate 75% of its annual free cash flow to additional stock buybacks.

Best Blue Chip Stocks For 2019

Stocks couldn’t shake off early losses and all three major indexes ended lower on Thursday.

Bloomberg News

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 210.79 points, or 1.17%, to 17830.76. The S&P 500 Index fell 19.34 points, or 0.92%, to 2075.81. The Nasdaq slid 57.85 points, or 1.19%, to 4805.29.

Blue chips were dragged down by Apple (AAPL): Just days after its disappointing earnings, billionaire Carl Icahn said he no longer has a stake in the stock.

From a data standpoint, First quarter gross domestic product grew 0.5%, below economists’ expectations, overshadowing an upbeat jobs report that saw unemployment fall to a four-decade low.

Stifel’s Lindsey Piegza writes that this could push out any interest rate hikes:

From a policy standpoint, should the U.S. economy post meaningful improvement between now and June, assuming the Fed’s concerns surrounding international “risks” are not reignited, policy makers appear well positioned to announce the second rate hike in less than two months’ time.  Of course, following this morning’s disappointing GDP report, it’s difficult to imagine a marked improvement in the economy over the next two months.  More likely, the combination of stagnant economic conditions, a still-restrained consumer, and ongoing concerns regarding risks of contagion from developments abroad – whether directly identified in the statement or not – will make it increasingly difficult for the Fed to raise rates once in the remaining nine months of 2016, if at all.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    There was a similar trend for smaller midstream player Phillips 66 Partners LP (NYSE:PSXP). It was down 19% in 2018 and rose 16% in January. But the trend didn’t hold for Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN), which distributes gasoline. This limited partnership was off by 4% in 2018, two percentage points less than the broader market, and up 12% in January. Cheniere Energy Partners LP (NYSEMKT:CQP) and Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG) were even further from the pack, up 12% and 11%, respectively, in January after posting gains of 21% and roughly 10%, respectively, in 2018.

    The Sweeny Hub expansion is a “key part of our midstream growth strategy,” said Garland, as it “further optimizes our integrated NGL value chain.” That chain starts with a link to fast-growing production basins to the West via pipelines co-owned by DCP Midstream and the company’s other MLP, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP). Last month, those companies announced that they would connect their Southern Hills NGL pipeline to the DJ Basin, which would bring more NGL volumes toward Phillips 66’s Sweeny Hub. Meanwhile, the companies are also expanding their Sand Hills NGL Pipeline to move volumes from the Permian Basin toward Sweeny.

    It’s no surprise, then, that many high-yield investments in the energy sector look attractive today. We asked three of our Motley Fool investors to highlight energy stocks they see as compelling buys right now. Unsurprisingly, they picked three high-yield stocks: Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), TerraForm Power (NASDAQ:TERP), and Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP).

    Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) had its price target reduced by stock analysts at Credit Suisse Group from $61.00 to $59.00 in a research note issued to investors on Monday. The brokerage currently has an “outperform” rating on the oil and gas company’s stock. Credit Suisse Group’s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 17.04% from the stock’s previous close.

    The region’s capacity constraints will likely hold back the Permian’s growth engine until the end of next year, when new pipelines enter service. One of those projects is the Grey Oak Pipeline system, which is an 800,000-BPD pipeline under development by Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) and Andeavor (NYSE:ANDX). The companies currently expect the $2 billion oil pipeline to start up by the end of 2019.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Own Right Now

Late last year, Japan legalized casinos in the country, opening up a gaming industry that could generate as much as $30 billion a year in revenues and become the second-largest casino market in the world. As several players scout for licenses, Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) is ready to invest heavily in the region, committing to an initial investment of $10 billion. While this is a significant number, if Las Vegas Sands is able to capture a decent share in the market, it would make sense given the revenue potential of the market. Currently, Macau and Singapore are the largest value drivers of the company, together accounting for more than 80% of its valuation.

The company is heavily dependent on Macau for revenues, and regulation changes in the region have impacted it negatively. At its peak in 2013, Macau’s gaming market had reached a size of $45 billion. However, after stricter regulations imposed by Chinese regulators, revenues started slumping. In 2016, the total amount won by casinos in the region stood at nearly $28 billion. Japan is likely to emerge as a huge market for casinos, with annual revenue estimates ranging from $10 billion to $30 billion.

Steve Wynn is out at Wynn Resorts, but the company he founded and its board of directors are still under scrutiny.

Wynn and the company’s nine remaining board members were hit with a shareholder lawsuit on Tuesday afternoon.

The complaint claims the board “knowingly turned a blind eye to allegations of patently egregious misconduct” by Wynn, and that their actions, or lack thereof, constituted “egregious breaches of fiduciary duty.”

Wynn stepped down as CEO and board chairman Tuesday evening, citing an “avalanche of negative publicity” that he claimed made it impossible to do his job.

Wynn’s departure has not resolved the problems facing Wynn Resorts since the Wall Street Journal detailed numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against Wynn in a lengthy investigation. The two states where Wynn has casino licenses are conducting investigations, and lawsuits against the company could drag on for years.

“They’re in a tough spot, because [Wynn’s] name is on the door,” said Charles Elson, who studies corporate governance at the University of Delaware.
