Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Barely a week after it set another record high, the Dow just suffered its worst one-day loss in its entire history.

While the latest turmoil hasnt reached the crisis level by any means, Ive been warning about a correction for months.

Warnings about an imminent collapse of developed economy stock markets, especially the U.S. markets, have been everywhere.

Whether you use Shillers CAPE ratio, Warren Buffetts preferred market-cap-to-GDP ratio, or traditional P/E ratios, markets were overpriced and ready to fall. Of course, that did not mean they would fall anytime soon, or on anyones timetable.

As we saw in the dot.com bubble of 1996-2000, and the housing bubble of 2002-2007, so-called irrational exuberance can last longer than the skeptics believe. However, some warnings perhaps deserve more attention than others.

Anyone can sound warnings about doom and gloom or stock market crashes. But those Cassandras are not worth listening to unless they offer facts and analysis to support their views. Opinions without something solid to back them up are just that opinions. The warnings I pay most attention to are those from establishment insiders.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc.(GMCR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Sterman]

    But for short sellers in Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (Nasdaq: GMCR), there's another outcome: They've been badly burned as shares have surged, but they insist they've been right all along, and it's only a matter of time before the stock crashes and burns.

  • [By Jonas Elmerraji]

    As badly as short sellers want to hate on Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), betting against the multiyear rally in this $12.7 billion beverage stock has been about as wise as eating from a box with a skull and crossbones on it. And as a bull market continues to lift all ships, Green Mountain’s ship is going to keep floating above the others.

    Green Mountain owns Keurig, the brand of beverage brewers that use self-contained K-Cups to make coffee, teas, and other drinks. While Keurig’s “fad” status has certainly helped tip the deck against GMCR, the fact remains that the firm has done most of the hard work in getting Keurig machines accepted by consumers. With brewers essentially ubiquitous at this point, the firm is able to make money on its cash cow: the K-Cups.

    Keurig’s individual-serving cups have big margins and a big installed base. With huge convenience and the relatively large sunk cost that consumers have put into their Keurig machines, it’s a sticky business with big switching costs. Consumers who buy a Keurig are much less likely to spend the money on a competing brand of proprietary coffee pods.

    I’ve said before that GMCR is far from cheap right now. But its momentum trajectory is showing few signs of fizzling out, especially as direct competitors such as Starbucks (SBUX) continue to sell K-Cups of their own. Don’t bet against GMCR in September – buy this Rocket Stock instead.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: QCR Holdings Inc.(QCRH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Fitz-Gerald]

    My favorite at the moment is QCR Holdings Inc. (NasdaqGM:QCRH).

    Founded in 1993 and headquartered in Moline, IL, the bank has a strong regional lending base in Illinois and Iowa that should grow in line with the broader national economy. I particularly like the fact that the bank considers itself relationship-driven at a time when trust is in short supply.

Best Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Canadian Pacific Railway Limited(CP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Railroad operator CSX may not have risen as sharply as Alcoa over the past few months, but it has also been steadily rising. It got a big boost this month when the CEO of Canadian Pacific Railway (NYSE:CP) Hunter Harrison resigned his position and was said to be teaming up with activist investor Paul Hilal to take on CSX, causing the railroad’s stock to surge 23% on the news.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    A strange turn of events has sent shares of CSX (CSX)–and other railroads, including Union Pacific (UNP) and Canadian Pacific Railway (CP)–soaring today. It all started when Hunter Harrison announced that he would leave Canadian Pacific ahead of schedule to team up with activist investor for the turnaround of another railway company. That company is thought to be CSX.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Buy Right Now

Deutsche Bank’s Gregg Gilbert argues that shares of Endo International (ENDP) are “undervalued” despite “concerns aplenty.” He explains why:

Endo shares have been under significant pressure this year for a variety of reasons, including but not necessarily limited to soft generic trends in 4Q15/1Q16, earlier-than-expected generic competition to Voltaren Gel, product liability (mesh) concerns, opioid demand concerns, and the debt load, all in the context of an unpopular sector. While we are not dismissive of these issues, it does feel like the stocks sell-off has been much more extreme than fundamentals would support, perhaps suggesting non-fundamental or forced selling (~35% of the float traded in the past two weeks). We see Endos Q1 call in early May as an important milestone in that new money may prefer to see Q1 trends and updated 16 guidance. Our below-consensus revenue and EPS estimates for 16 ($4.1bn and $5.34 vs. consensus of $4.3bn and $5.80) build in a hit from generic Voltaren Gel and some cushion to account for softness in Endos own generics business.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Buy Right Now: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Energy infrastructure companies ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) are both emerging from the energy market downturn as stronger entities. Each made smart acquisitions, with TransCanada buying U.S. gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group, while ONEOK is in the process of gobbling up its MLP,ONEOK Partners (NYSE:OKS). While these deals enhanced the growth profiles of both companies, TransCanada still stands out as the better buy for long-term income investors. Here’s why.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    In a number of articles recently, following the US recent revival and potential approval of the previously blocked Keystone XL pipeline, a number of estimates have been provided suggesting a pending boom for the US steel industry is on the horizon (and US steel stocks have reacted in kind). In fact, this optimism, we believe, peaked today when a report from one of our competitors was published claiming that, the keystone XL pipeline could increase line pipe demand by 14.7% for 2 years. The problem here, we believe, rests with the facts that: (a) TransCanada (TRP) has already taken, and paid for, the steel to build the Keystone XL pipeline (the steel currently sits in storage facilities in both Regina, Canada and Arkansas, United States), (b) neither US Steel (X; SELL), AK Steel, Steel Dynamics, or Nucor have the ability to make the specialized steel required for the miles of pipe associated with this project, to include both the thickness and pressure requirements, according to this article from Reuters, and (c) assuming some of the pipe does need replacement, this would likely come from international steel makers who are capable of producing the specialized steel (again, as highlighted in this Reuters article).

    After a series of setbacks in its attempts to build new oil pipelines, Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) completed a transformation transaction to acquire U.S. natural gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group for $13 billion, which includes the assumption of debt. The key to that deal was that it increased the combined company’s near-term project pipeline to 23 billion Canadian dollars, which supports TransCanada’s ability to increase its dividend by 8% to 10% annually through 2020. After completing that deal, TransCanada made a bid to acquire all of the outstanding units that it did not own of affiliated MLP Columbia Pipeline Partners (NYSE:CPPL) in a transaction valued at $915 million. These acquisitions solidified TransCanada’s natural gas pipeline growth ambitions, enabling it to diversify away from oil pipelines.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    That includes pipeline companies like Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI), which already operates a pipeline transporting natural gas from Texas into Mexico, and master limited partnerships (MLPs) Energy Transfer Partners L.P. (NYSE: ETP) and TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP), the company that has (so far) failed to get U.S. approval for its Keystone Pipeline expansion from Canada’s oil sands across the U.S. border.

    Energy stocks were driven by a hefty dose of M&A during the third quarter. And that will drive returns for TransCanada Corporation (TRP) during the next one.

    Amazon.com Inc. (NSDQ:AMZN)stock fell by more than 5 % over the last week. There were a series of service announcements last week by Amazons cloud-computing business, AWS, but they also didn’t do much to support the falling AMZN stock. However, AWS re:Invent 2016 has reaffirmed that AWS is one strong reason to buy AMZN stock now. AWS is expected to top $12 billion in revenue this year, compared with $7.9 billion last year. The public cloud pioneer has gone from being the largest, most dominant public cloud service for web developers and startups to providing the most important technology to businesses: the enterprise cloud. Amazon has sustained its aggressive cloud approach, even though competitors like Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT) and Alphabet (NSDQ:GOOGL) are trying to catch up, using their deep pockets. Here’s why AWS is not slowing down anytime soon and will continue to drive AMZN stock to greater heights.

    The impact of that shift can already be seen in the way Alphabets aggregate cost per click has declined in the last two years. At the same time, the total number of clicks has increased. The shift to mobile as well as the increasing traffic from new markets are jointly giving more click volume, but lower revenue per click. This trend will continue, it is not something that Alphabet can snap itself out of that easily; and in all likelihood we might see this accelerate in the next few years as mobile usage in developing markets increases.

    Apple stock is currently trading at a PE multiple of 14.09, in line with the valuation multiples of other hardware companies like HP Inc (NYSE:HPQ) and Qualcomm (NSDQ:QCOM). However, the Apple services segment is significantly different from a ‘hardware’ business, whether in terms of operations or associated cost structure. It would, therefore, be more accurate to evaluate the segment as a services business in order to gauge its ‘value.’ Two popular companies which generate a ton of services revenue are Alphabet (NSDQ:GOOGL) and Facebook (NSDQ:FB).

Hot Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2018

Small SUVs are the hottest segment in the new car market right now. So maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that a big chunk of the new vehicle unveilings at the Los Angeles Auto Show were little crossover SUVs.

It seemed like there was an SUV popping out every time you turned around. For starters, Ford unveiled its new EcoSport just before the show with DJ Khaled doing the honors.

The Jeep Compass is another example of the car market’s madness for small-sized SUVs. The current version is a strong seller despite abysmal reviews. Consumer Reports gave it the lowest rating of any compact SUV and Car & Driver awarded it a mere 1.5 out of a possible five stars.

And yet, as of last month, Jeep Compass sales for the year were up 44%. According to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAM), which makes Jeeps, the sales jump reflects the Compass’s relatively low price given all the desirable SUV features that it offers.

It’s too soon to know, of course, how good the new Compass is but it should at least be a vast improvement over the outgoing model. Since it’s a Jeep, engineers took off-road capability seriously in creating the new Compass. Two different full-time all-wheel-drive systems are available including a super-slow off-road “crawl” gearing ratio. “Trail Rated” versions can wade through 19 inches of water and climb over steep hills and out of tight ditches. At the same time, Jeep also promises better on-road behavior.
