Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019

Biotech stocks trading under $5 a share may seem like more trouble than they’re worth. Low-priced biotechs, after all, are often victims of serious clinical or regulatory setbacks that cast doubt on their long-term viability. 

Over the past few years, however, several beaten-down biotech stocks have ended up producing enormous gains for risk-tolerant investors. For example, Acadia Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ACAD), Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL), and Dynavax Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:DVAX) were all once so-called “penny stocks” that went on to rebound nicely once their lead clinical candidates made it successfully onto the market.

The unifying theme here is that Acadia, Exelixis, and Dynavax each had their fair share of skeptics that caused their share prices to trade at bargain-basement levels once upon a time. When the worm turned, however, all three of these biotechs rose sharply in the blink of an eye.

Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019: Starbucks Corporation(SBUX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    To me, this last point is the most cogent reason for shareholders to be patient while the company works through a quarter or two of lower comps due to its menu initiative. If you buy Dunkin’s’ brand positioning, you already understand that it’s differentiating itself from rival Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), which wants customers to perceive it as a “third place,” i.e., a social destination outside home or work.

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    That compares unfavorably with other restaurant stocks, including McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) at 22 and Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) at 27.8. Investors have given Chipotle such a high valuation because they still believe that its earnings are suppressed from the aftermath of the foodborne illness situations. However, even if Chipotle’s profits were as high as they were at its peak, at $16.77 in the last four quarters before the E. coli crisis began, the stock would still be overvalued next to its peers, trading at a P/E of 35.8.

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX) needs to be restructured, refined and refocused. The management decision to reorganize the coffee company will come with large layoffs. Company CEO and president, Kevin Johnson, will not be among those who will depart. However, many Starbucks problems have occurred over the course of his tenure, and last year he was paid $11.5 million for his leadership.

Denison Mines Corp’s Uranium Commentary

Last Thursday, small cap uranium mining stock Denison Mines Corp (NYSEAMERICAN: DNN), which is also focused on the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, reported 2017 earnings and gave its outlook for 2018 with the outlook coming with extensive commentary about the uranium market and Athabasca. David Cates, the President and CEO of Denison Mines Corp, gave the following commentary:

“2017 was a volatile year for the uranium market. While the spot price of uranium benefited from upward momentum on multiple occasions during the year, that momentum was not sustained long enough for a meaningful change to the low price environment that saw the market reach 12 and 13 year lows in late 2016. Despite these disappointing market trends, Denison managed to have another productive year as we continue to focus on our strategy of positioning the Company for the future and a return to a much higher uranium price.”

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019: Adient plc (ADNT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday was another positive day for the stock market, with major benchmarks seeing small advances to start the week. Most investors focused on Singapore, where U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Geopolitical issues have weighed on market sentiment for some time, so any sort of favorable resolution to tensions on the nuclear front could be embraced by Wall Street. Still, some companies had bad news today that held back their shares. Adient (NYSE:ADNT), CRISPR Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Adient PLC (NYSE: ADNT) was one of Monday morning’s worst performing stocks, after it was announced that its Chairman and CEO would be stepping down effective immediately. Also the company issued a revised outlook for the 2018 full year that was not up to par.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Perhaps it is because trading stocks can often mirror the thrill of winning big at the blackjack tables, or maybe it is because Las Vegas conjures images of the world’s most flashy brands and businessmen. Regardless of the reason, it is clear that gambling stocks are always among the most popular on Wall Street.

Luckily for investors, now is also an interesting time to be buying gambling stocks, as continued Vegas strength, legalized sports gambling coming to the U.S., and an overall international interest in gaming has created some interesting buying opportunity.

Of course, no industries are without risk, and recently, some casino giants have been selling off as gambling data has hinted at a potential slowdown in Macau after an extended recovery in the world’s top gaming hotspot.

Still, we can use Zacks’ proven stock-picking methods to find solid stocks in any industry. Check out these casino stocks today:

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

On Feb. 17, 2017, the U.S. total market cap / gross domestic product ratio reached 130%, a critical milestone as valuations remain significantly overvalued. Most of Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s portfolio holdings as of Dec. 31, 2016, have price-sales valuations greater than the 80th percentile of the industry. Such companies include The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE:KO), International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM), Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE:DAL), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE:LUV).

Buffett indicator reaches critical milestone

Buffett pointed out that the ratio of the Wilshire 5000 full-cap index over the gross domestic product is “probably the best single measure of where valuations stand at any given moment.” The total market index is currently $24513.4 billion, about 130% of the last reported U.S. GDP. Such market valuations seldom appeared since the dot-com bubble of 2000, when the Buffett indicator reached nearly 150%. Figure 1 shows the historical trendline of the Buffett indicator since 1970.

Shorting a company like Tesla right now might prove to be full of profit potential. In fact, premium subscribers were recommended just that at a time when the stock was moving down in the past, and they had the opportunity to close out on two legs of the same trade for a total of 121.41% gains.

(NYSE: BLK): CEO Larry Fink laid out why China is a critical priority in his company’s 2017 annual report, citing the same three primary “Unstoppable Trend” subsets we prioritize when it comes to the Red Dragon as being the driver… demographics, economic, and regulatory shifts. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA): The e-commerce giant is the only company capable of giving Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) a true run for its money and – gasp – potentially winning the fight. It’s working on a plan to list shares in mainland China, not Hong Kong, as many people believe and as has been widely reported. This could immediately unlock a huge pool of captive money that could double shares when Chinese investors have access through a secondary listing.

    The Dow was flat this morning as major banks report earnings. Shares of JPMorgan Chaseadded nearly 1% after the company reported a record Q2 profit. The company also reported stronger results from its trading division, which likely benefited from recent market volatility. Its earnings per share of $2.29 was $0.07 above the average estimate of $2.22. China’s trade surplus against the United States hit a new record in June. Many economists are concerned that this news could cause U.S. President Donald Trump to escalate his tariff battle with China. Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to hit another $200 billion in Chinese goods with a 10% tariff. Trump has demanded that China cut down on its surplus.
