Top Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

If you are an income investor looking at gold stocks you might be tempted to buy Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM), a gold and silver streaming company with a relatively high yield. It’s not a bad stock to own, but it may not be the best dividend stock for your portfolio if you don’t understand a few important basics. Here’s what you need to know before you buy Wheaton for its peer-beating dividend yield.

What Wheaton does

The first thing to understand is that Wheaton Precious Metals is not a miner. It is a streaming company. That means it provides cash up front to miners in exchange for the right to buy gold and silver at reduced rates in the future. It’s a business model that provides Wheaton with wide margins in both good markets and bad because of its contractually locked-in low prices.

    Technology is a wide-ranging term: It has expanded far beyond what would have once been considered the typical tech stocks, including computer companies likeApple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), IBM (NYSE:IBM), and others. It’s not even fair to call any of these three brands computer companies anymore. They operate in a variety of other segments that are all part of the technology market, including but not limited to:

    Artificial intelligence (AI): This is where computers perform tasks that might have traditionally require a human brain. AI also encompassesdeep learning (where data scientists build computer models inspired by the structure and function of the human brain that essentially reproduces our ability to learn), and machine learning (a type of AI where computers learn without being specifically programmed to). Amazon’s Alexa might be the most famous AI, though IBM’s Watson has also achieved a lot of media attention. Smartphones: While Apple and Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF) lead this space, there are lots of secondary players making components, software, apps, and phones. “Smartphone” is sort of a catch-all name for handsets that can run apps, programs, and nearly anything else a computer might be able to do. Blockchain: While blockchain has gotten a lot of publicity because it’s the technology behind Bitcoin and other virtual currencies, it’s more than just an alternative payment method. Blockchain is “the digital, distributed, and decentralized ledger tethered to most cryptocurrencies that are responsible for recording all transactions without the need for a financial intermediary. In other words, it’s a transparent and immutable (i.e., unchanging) log of all transactions that don’t involve banks acting as a third party,” according to The Motley Fool’s Sean Williams.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Expeditors International of Washington, Inc.(EXPD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Tuesday saw an up-and-down session on Wall Street, with major benchmarks trading on either side of the unchanged mark before finishing the day flat. Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
