Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

Traders, investors and Star Wars fans alike must be thrilled with Walt Disney Co (DIS, $110.57) these days. As well they should.

In successive days, Disney announced a deal to acquire a large part of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) and debuted the latest installment of the Star Wars saga in a wide release. Whether Star Wars: The Last Jedi can eclipse the $2 billion mark like 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens did (and even beat Episode VII outright) remains to be seen, but its dramatic acquisition of Fox is unquestionably a blockbuster.

Disney stock is trading at a discount to the broader market and sits within reach of its all-time high of $122.08 hit more than two years ago. The blue chip looks like a buy on the heels of this news.

Here’s why.

Disney the Streaming Giant?

Disney is spending $52.4 billion to acquire Fox’s movie and televisions studios, cable and international TV businesses, local sports channels and some other assets.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Skyworks Solutions, Inc.(SWKS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Best known for supplying connectivity chips for smartphones, Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) has been leveraging its success into new markets. However, even after doubling many times over in the last decade, the stock could still have plenty left in the tank to make investors money.

    Wednesday was generally a down day on Wall Street, as major stock indexes posted modest losses. Investors remain conflicted between the ongoing prospects for gridlock in Washington and the ebb and flow of economic conditions both in the U.S. and globally. Yet amid the best stocks in the market were several companies that have faced past challenges but have charted a way back toward sustained growth. Snap (NYSE:SNAP), Capri Holdings (NYSE:CPRI), and Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

    Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) had its price objective trimmed by Morgan Stanley from $80.00 to $79.00 in a research report report published on Wednesday morning. The firm currently has an underweight rating on the semiconductor manufacturer’s stock.

    Some stocks trade at cheap valuations for a reason, whether that’s temporary setbacks, a shift in consumer preferences, or simply a company that has failed to adapt to the constantly evolving world. But sometimes stocks trade at a cheap valuation because Wall Street has overlooked them or investors have yet to realize the future potential the companies possess. Three Motley Fool contributors believe that Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA), Skyworks Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), and The Travelers Companies (NYSE:TRV) are three top value stocks to buy right now. Here’s why.

    And then often Shopify Plus accounts are being picked up in bundle deals because there’s just a lot more interest. Someone like Unilever (NYSE: UL) wants to make it a very lightweight process of getting a new store up and running for experimentation, because they are trying to foster that kind of cultural change within their own organizations, as well. And Shopify Plus fits much better into this model than a traditional e-commerce play that requires a six-month implementation process.

Top Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

The hype around the growth of Apple Inc.’s services segment has been a major factor driving the rally in AAPL stock price. The impact on Apple’s earnings could be even more significant.
Flickr

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been one of the top performers among S&P 500 companies. AAPL stock is up nearly 25% in the year-to-date, outperforming the S&P 500 (INDX:SPAL) by 18.5% over the period. The uptrend has gathered momentum in recent weeks, with Apple stock hitting its 5 new highs in March, and also moving above a $1000 pre-split price. A lot of the current momentum in AAPL shares has been attributed to the emergence of Apple’s services business, which accounted for just under 10% of the company’s overall revenue share in the last quarter, as a major growth driver. As we have covered in earlier posts, we believe that the ‘Services’ segment is a major catalyst for Apple Inc’s growth and, by extension, a major driver for AAPL stock. A deeper look into the fundamentals of the services business indicates that the segment could already be a significant contributor to Apple earnings. And, the rapid growth in the services business will reflect on Apple’s overall earnings, sooner or later.

Top Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019: (LVMUY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Shares of Tiffany & Co. (NYSE:TIF) were down 9% as of 2:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday following concerning comments on growth in Japan and China from fellow luxury goods specialist LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (NASDAQOTH:LVMUY). LVMH shares are also down 8% as of this writing.

  • [By ]

    Two years ago, I discussed LVMH (OTCPK:LVMUY) (OTCPK:LVMHF) in another article here on Seeking Alpha. Although I wasn’t too impressed with the company’s free cash flow yield, I did agree this company deserved a premium valuation. And on top of that, I was expecting its strong growth results to continue in the years ahead. We’re now two years later, and LVMH has delivered on every front. Unfortunately the market caught up on that as well, and LVMH’s share price has doubled in just two years. And although the LVMH results justify a good performance of the share price, I do think LVMH is getting a little pricey.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    At $126, Tiffany trades at about 27 times this year’s earnings estimate — which is a premium valuation relative to the midpoint of its forecast for 12% growth. LVMH (NASDAQOTH:LVMUY), which owns Tiffany’s rival (and Bogliolo’s former employer) Bulgari, trades at just 25 times this year’s earnings — and analysts expect its EPS to jump 16%. Bulgari, like Tiffany, is pivoting away from its “old world” charms toward edgier marketing campaigns that target younger shoppers.

    Ferrari may be a carmaker but its valuation is more similar to those of luxury powerhouses like LVMH (OTCPK:LVMUY), Kering (OTCPK:PPRUY) or Richemont (OTCPK:CFRUY) than those of fellow car companies like former parent FCA or Germany’s Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF), BMW (OTCPK:BMWYY) or Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY). No other automotive brand, luxury or volume, can compete with Ferrari’s operative EBIT margin of 22.69 percent and EBITDA margin of 30.3 percent for the full year 2017 (the runner-up being Volkswagen-owned Porsche with a margin of 17.6 percent for 2017). In my eyes, this is further proof of the fact that a Ferrari is not primarily a car but a luxury product. It just happens to be a luxury product that presents itself in the form of a car. The overwhelming majority of cars are purchased out of necessity. Even a premium product like a Mercedes-Benz or a BMW will in most cases remain a tool of transportation above everything else – although I could imagine that some of my fellow countrymen from Germany would fiercely disagree with me on this. No one, however, needs a Ferrari. Please note that I allow myself to exclude needs of the ego from my definition of necessity here. Still, Ferraris are in high demand. That is because customers don’t buy them because they need but because they want them. It is this passion that ensures the company’s success. It is noteworthy that at Ferrari revenue (+10 percent in 2017; +11.2 percent currency-adjusted) increases at a significantly faster pace than shipments (+4.8 percent in 2017) do. This underlines the business’s pricing power.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019: SPDR S&P MidCap 400 ETF (MDY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Yet when it comes to investing, reward often comes from being willing to take on risk. Over the past 10 years, investors who’ve been willing to look at smaller companies have seen much stronger returns than those who’ve stuck with the tried-and-true big names that are more familiar to them. When you look at exchange-traded funds tracking indexes composed of companies of different sizes — SPDR S&P 500 (NYSEMKT:SPY) for large companies, SPDR S&P Midcap 400 (NYSEMKT:MDY) for midsize companies, and SPDR S&P SmallCap 600 (NYSEMKT:SLY) for small companies — you can put a number on just how much better smaller stocks have done:

The flooring retailer reported second-quarter results on July 31, and Mr. Market added more injury to an already painful year, sending shares down more than 20% by the time the market closed. And while the company continues to face challenges, including relatively weak traffic growth and high expenses, it probably had a better second quarter than the market’s reaction would indicate.

Some of you may have guessed a quarterly earnings report was to blame, but Lumber Liquidators’ numbers weren’t really that bad. Or were they?

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019

Tupperware Brands’ (NYSE:TUP) stock has tumbled more than 40% since last July on a consistent flow of negative news. Most recently, TUP revised its first-quarter earnings forecast down by 14% to $0.87-0.92 from a previous range of $1.01-1.06. Customer service, supply chain, and tax issues were the main reasons for the revision. With that being said, I see the stock as being significantly undervalued for the following reasons:

Free cash flow is expected to rebound to $170-180 million in 2018, an increase of approximately $30 million over 2017. Free cash flow should further rebound in future years as TUP completes its reengineering program. This yields 51% upside potential in a conservative discounted cash flow model. TUP is performing well in Emerging Markets, especially China and Brazil, which could push TUP to a growth trajectory in the coming years. The company currently has a dividend yield of 6.52%, which is supported by free cash flow. Based on TUP’s 2018 free cash flow projection, this should equal dividend coverage of approximately 80%. It has attractive fundamental valuations including a Forward P/E of 8.51x and a PEG of 0.73x. Tupperware Brands’ Operations

Driving TUP’s net loss for 2017 was a number of non-recurring expenses:
