Top Stocks To Watch For 2019

There are well over 100 different majors college students can potentially choose, and it’s no big secret that graduating college will generally boost your earnings power. Having said that, there’s a huge difference in earning power among the choices. Not only do some earn dramatically more than others, but many fields have minuscule unemployment rates and some high-earning fields don’t require education beyond a bachelor’s degree to attain a six-figure salary.

With that in mind, a recent Bankrate report examined 162 college majors and the Americans who hold degrees in them to determine which were the most and least valuable as defined by three factors — average annual income, unemployment rate, and the need for a graduate degree. Here are the five most valuable and a bit about why each one ranked so highly.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Canadian cannabis stock Tilray has, to put it mildly, been on a strange trip.

Tilray’s moves have been wackier than anything Harold and Kumar experienced on their trip to White Castle or Seth Rogen and James Franco’s adventures in “Pineapple Express.”

Shares of Tilray (TLRY) have shot up nearly 50% in the past week, surging nearly 40% alone on Wednesday — a day when the stock was halted five times in the final 70 minutes of trading on the Nasdaq for volatility.

The stock was up more than 90% at one point Wednesday and also dived into negative territory before recovering. Shares remained volatile Thursday, alternating between double-digit gains and sizable losses. It was down about 20% in midday trading.

But following the moves of the past week, Tilray’s market value is a staggering $16 billion. It is worth more than Molson Coors (TAP), Macy’s (M), Tiffany (TIF) and casino giants MGM (MGM) and Wynn (WYNN).

Not bad for a company that just went public in July, isn’t profitable and is only expected to generate sales of $41 million this year.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Hill]

    Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG) took just a smidge of a haircut after releasing its first-quarter report, despite putting up huge ad revenue growth. What gives? 3M (NYSE:MMM) followed a knockout 2017 with a not-so-great start to the new year, but long-term investors shouldn’t sweat it too hard. Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) held its annual meeting today, and despite its CEO’s stated devotion to rebuilding customer trust, things don’t look so great for the bank — and could look even worse in a few weeks after Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) annual meeting. Tune in to find out more.

    Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) has been under more than its historical scrutiny after multiple scandals and self-inflicted management blunders. In fact, the company is even now advertising that Wells Fargo is being reintroduced in 2018 after over 150 years of operations. After many wrist slaps and many fines and settlements, Wells Fargo announced that the Federal Reserve Board did not object to the company’s 2018 Capital Plan under the recently concluded Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR).

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    As far as positive surprises go, Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) was probably the biggest positive surprise. I probably don’t have to tell most listeners, Wells Fargo hasn’t had the best couple of years, when it comes to their fake accounts scandal, the fallout from that, the other mini scandals along the way, and just recently, their punishment by the same Federal Reserve that says they’re not allowed to grow until they improve. They actually got the approval to buy back more than twice the amount of stock that they did last year. One, that says a lot about how well-capitalized they are. Two, it also says a lot that their management’s willing to do that, that they think that their stock is at such a compelling bargain right now that they’re willing to spend over $25 billion on buybacks alone.

    The price of Bitcoin faced more pressure over the weekend. The downturn came on news that several major banks have banned the purchasing of Bitcoin with credit cards. Bank of America Corp.

    Janet Yellen is officially out of the Federal Reserve and will be heading to the Brookings Institution. Today, Jerome Powell will begin his first term at the helm of the U.S. central bank. Powell takes over at an interesting time for the U.S. economy. The central bank is expected to raise interest rates three times in 2017. In addition, Powell must manage a $4.5 trillion balance sheet that the Fed built up in the wake of last decade’s financial crisis.
    Gold prices saw a slight gain in pre-market hours. But those gains could surge as markets continue to face questions about inflation and a weaker U.S. dollar. Gold prices saw one of their biggest one-day declines in two months on Friday. Investors are looking at this as a solid entry point given price expectations from Money Morning Resource Specialist Peter Krauth. Peter expects that gold prices will reach $1,400 by the end of June and rise to as high as $1,500 by December.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Friday
    The big news this morning is the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s charges of fraud against Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk. The government agency said that Musk issued “false and misleading” statements and failed to use the correct channels to notify regulators of important company events. In this instance, the suit is tied to Musk’s August tweet that said that he was considering taking his firm private and that he had secured funding for such a deal. Shares were off more than 14% in pre-market hours, and the sell-off could pick up when the markets open. Should Musk be found guilty on these charges, the SEC could bar him from servicing as an officer or director of a publicly traded organization. Housing stocks continue to face pressure as mortgage rates sit at a seven-and-a-half-year high. Following the U.S. Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates on Wednesday, mortgage rates pushed higher and added new challenges to an industry that has been sputtering in recent months. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate averaged 4.72% this week, up from 4.65% last week. That is the highest level for mortgage rates since April 2011.

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.
