Top 10 Stocks For 2019

The average investors in badly managed companies that pay executives large salaries and in which large shareholders get special perks often ask, “Where are the shareholders’ yachts”? At CBS Corp. (NYSE: CBS), the answer is that there aren’t any as controlling shareholder Shari Redstone battles CEO Les Moonves for control of the company.

The value of Redstone’s position, owned via National Amusements, is in the tens of billions of dollars. Moonves made $69.3 million last year and $69.6 million in 2016. CBS has posted good earnings for several years. However, the battle is tearing the company apart, taking up extremely valuable management and board time and putting the future of CBS in question.

Shareholders need management to dig its shares out of a hole. The stock is down 15% in the past year to $52. The S&P 500 is up 15% over the same period.

Redstone would like to merge CBS with Viacom, a company her family also controls. Viacom’s shares have not done as badly as CBS’s in the past year, but the return to investors has been subpar, down 7% to $39.

    There have been some macroeconomic signs that America’s housing boom is starting to show signs of fatigue, but those figures haven’t really shown up in the earnings reports of most homebuilders. The one exception is Beazer Homes USA (NYSE:BZH). While most companies are still showing strong home sales and growing net orders, Beazer’s fiscal third-quarter results showed some cracks in its growth trajectory.

Top 10 Stocks For 2019: Lowe’s Companies Inc.(LOW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Home Depot (NYSE:HD) is a classic growth stock right now. The home-improvement retailer increased sales by 7% in the past fiscal year, about double the pace of its closest rival, Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW). Its gross and operating profit margins are also significantly higher than those of its peers. In exchange for that outperformance, investors are being asked to pay 26 times earnings for Home Depot, which is a premium to the broader market at 24 and Lowe’s at 22.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Douglass: Right. Let’s talk briefly about, we’ve talked about the home sector as this big thing. Let’s break that down a little bit, what the kind of general different ways of thinking about an approach in the home sector are. Obviously, you’ve got your direct homebuilders. We’ll get more into specifics on all these after the break. You’ve got your home builders, the folks who actually build homes. You’ve also got the Home Depots (NYSE:HD) and Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) of the world, who are good about the home maintenance and things like that. That’s been another big part. Then you also have …

    In this Motley Fool Money podcast, host Chris Hill and senior Motley Fool analysts David Kretzmann, Jason Moser, and Aaron Bush review the week in business news, and while there were some interesting (and share-price moving) earnings reports, the lead news in retail completely overshadowed the quarterly release from the company in question: word that home improvement major Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) had lured away J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) boss Marvin Ellison to be its new CEO. The Fools consider just how big a deal that is for the company, and what other catalysts are likely to move the needle for it.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Marvin Ellison hasn’t had many opportunities to report good news to Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) investors since he took over the CEO spot last year. The former Home Depot (NYSE:HD) executive announced a reduced sales outlook in each of his first two quarters at the helm, in fact, while noting that execution problems were hurting the chain’s sales and profit trends through most of 2018.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Investors shrugged off strong operating and financial results from Home Depot (NYSE:HD) last year to push the stock lower. It wasn’t that the retailing chain lost ground to rivals like Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW). On the contrary, it expanded its lead against its peer in just about every important business metric. Instead, fears of an impending slowdown in the housing industry have Wall Street worried about the near future for both companies.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Five semiconductor companies are in a prime position to benefit from the rollout of 5G, the fifth generation of wireless communication that telecom companies are racing to implement, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday.

“If you’re a semiconductor company with 5G exposure, this is your moment,” he said after Skyworks Solutions, an Apple supplier that fits that description, surged over 12 percent intraday after delivering its quarterly earnings results.

Skyworks’ surge was so strong that it lifted shares of other chipmakers involved in 5G, including Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Xilinx, all of which stand to benefit from the rise of 5G, Cramer said on “Mad Money.”

And while he preferred the stock of Skyworks to its peers because of its low price tag and the company’s focus on 5G, he said investors “can make the case for all five.”

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Alphabet’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) autonomous car division, Waymo, recently signed a contract to add Jaguar’s first all-electric car to its fleet of self-driving vehicles.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

Is the bitcoin boom about to turn into one of history’s biggest busts?

The digital currency’s massive surge this year — it’s up more than 1,400% — has all the hallmarks of a huge speculative bubble, according to people such as Warren Buffett.

And if it bursts, the results are likely to be spectacular.

“In terms of how it ends, bubble history suggests it will be with a bang, rather than a whimper,” said Sharon Zoller, an economist at ANZ. “I can’t think of any reason why this time would be different.”

To better understand what may lie ahead, here’s the lowdown on four famous financial bubbles in history:

Tulip mania

In the early 17th century, speculation helped drive the value of tulip bulbs in the Netherlands to previously unheard of prices. Newly imported from Turkey, tulips were a big novelty at the time.

Hard data from those days is scarce, so it’s difficult to gauge exactly how much prices soared. But people were putting up their homes as collateral, according to the Rijksmuseum — the Museum of the Netherlands — in Amsterdam.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) has been working to revive its Keystone XL pipeline. After years of delay, TransCanada could start full construction next year, which would put the line into service by 2021. However, the hotly contested pipeline could face new delays or even another rejection.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    In addition to the Trans Mountain system, two other pipeline projects currently are proposed to move crude oil from Alberta either to the Great Lakes or the Gulf Coast. Enbridge Inc. (NYSE: ENB) is proposing to replace its 50-year old Line 3 system to transport 760,000 barrels a day to Superior, Wisconsin. TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) has received approval from the Trump administration and would transport 830,000 barrels a day to Nebraska where existing pipelines will take over, sending the crude to U.S. refineries and Gulf Coast terminals.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projectslast year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Priestley:Yeah,absolutely. The last company is also on this natural gas trend,it’s TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), ticker TRP. It’s aCanadian energy infrastructure company. They have assets in the U.S.,Canada, obviously, and Mexico. Theyoperate 40,000 miles of natural gas pipeline. Anotable project that they operate is the Keystone XL Pipeline and theKeystone Pipeline system. Italso has interests in 20 powergeneration facilities,mostly in Canada. And, they have significant scale as a midstream company. I kind of like these midstream players, because they’re really winners,so to speak, in a lot of respects. A lot of the contracts that they make with the oil refiners or the oilcompanies themselves are 15-20-year contracts.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    TransCanada’s (NYSE:TRP) expansion efforts continued paying dividends during the first quarter as earnings and cash flow kept growing. As a result, the Canadian pipeline giant remains on track to achieve its dividend growth targets. CEO Russ Girling affirmed that view on the quarterly conference call, where he detailed the company’s progress on its strategic plan.

Gnosis, a decentralized platform for prediction markets that uses “crowdsourced wisdom” sourced globally and built on Ethereum technology, has set a new record by raising $12.5 million (m) in a token offering via a Dutch auction, the first successful one of its kind in crypto, and the fastest crowdsale to date to sell out more than $10m.

With investors snapping up the supply of Gnosis (GNO) tokens – equivalent to 250,000 Ethereum (ETH) – in a mere twelve minutes after today’s launch at 1pm New York time, it becomes one of three to sell out in under fifteen minutes along with FirstBlood and SingularDTV.

News of the record-breaking fund raising token performance, which involved sending Ether to the token sale contract and receiving GNO tokens back within one week of sale’s conclusion, follows two years of development on the platform that started in January 2015.
