Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

I haven’t purchased life insurance in roughly seven years.

Don’t get me wrong, I have life insurance, but I haven’t purchased any additional life insurance, with the exception of the group plan I set up for my company, since my wife was pregnant with our second child.

And up until this week, I’ve enjoyed the peace of mind that comes with purchasing the right amount of life insurance to protect the financial interests of my family in the event of my death. 

I have no idea why, but this week I decided to take a closer look at this part of my financial plan. And, at the risk of filling up my inbox with emails from every insurance agent in America, I’m pretty sure I need more life insurance. 

I’ll explain why, but first some notes on life insurance in general.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

By Parke Shall

We honestly wouldn’t be surprised if we saw somebody come in and make a bid for Mylan (NASDAQ:MYL) at this stage in the game.

We have written several articles talking about why we think the company is significantly undervalued, and now that some of the gray skies have cleared from in front of the company and it has settled with the Department of Justice, we believe it will be blue skies ahead for MYL. We wanted to take a second and talk about what we believe will be a very unique opportunity to own this company at a price significantly under fair market value.

Our last article on MYL talked about the opportunity to buy the company after it had settled with the Department of Justice over the classification of its EpiPen product. We made a prediction that the stock would eventually head back to $49 per share, which is where it was trading prior to the EpiPen scandal going mainstream. We also stated that the company could have about 75% upside over the course of the long term, a price target that we arrived at by putting a 12X multiple on recently reiterated $6 EPS estimates for 2018. With the stock now at $36, that upside potential moves to about 100%.

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.
