Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019

We spend most of our working lives contributing money to retirement accounts but what about taking it out in retirement? If you have pre-tax, Roth, and taxable accounts, how much should you withdraw from each one? Here are some things to consider:

1) How much can you safely withdraw? The safest option is to only withdraw earnings and not touch any of the principal but at current dividend yields and interest rates, don’t expect to get much more than about 2% of your portfolio. That’s probably not enough for most people and that number can fluctuate and may not keep pace with inflation in the long term.

The traditional rule of thumb is that you can safely withdraw about 4% of the initial value of a diversified portfolio and increase that amount with inflation for about 30 years. However, the rule was developed during the 1990s when interest rates were higher and many financial experts (including the financial planner who created it) are concerned that the rule is now obsolete. It also doesn’t take into account that you may have to withdraw larger amounts while you still have a mortgage or before you start collecting pension and Social Security benefits so a steady withdrawal rate may not make sense.

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    And with just a few smart plays in today’s classic stock picker’s market, you can pull in triple-digit gains with just a small investment.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    The markets are upbeat about the latest reports surrounding trade between the United States and China. Despite news that roughly $16 billion in fresh tariffs are going into effect this week on Chinese goods, markets are hoping that momentum begins to build ahead of discussions between leaders of world’s two largest economies. With that said, President Trump downplayed upcoming discussions in an interview with Reuters on Monday. Back on June 21, I wrote about a fast-moving, high-profit stock – Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: DDE). And that recommendation has brought in gains of roughly 103% since then. But we’re not done with the top gambling stocks. Today, I’m back with an entirely different way to make fast gains in this space. To see the latest bargain play, read up on this fund that no one is talking about. We’re talking a quick double-digit gain, no questions asked

    Kohl’s Corp. (NYSE: KSS) leads a busy day of earnings reports on Tuesday. This morning, the retailer reported earnings of share of $1.76. That figure topped Wall Street estimates by $0.12. Shares pressed higher thanks to news of a 3.1% jump in same-store sales and a hike to the retailer’s full-year outlook. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) is on the verge of blowing up the retail stock trading business.

    Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Shares of Toll Brothers have outperformed its industry over the past three months. Estimates have also been trending upward for the current year over the past 30 days. Robust economy, improving demographics and financial health of its affluent customer base bode well for Toll Brothers. Also, lack of competition in the luxury new home market is expected to drive growth for Toll Brothers as it enjoys greater pricing power than other homebuilding companies. Solid growth in revenues (up 23%) and deliveries (up 16%) in fiscal 2018, following a gain of 12% and 17%, respectively, in fiscal 2017, reflects the health of the luxury new home market. However, escalating building material and labor costs that are proving to be a drag on margins. Again, high mortgage rates dilute the demand for new homes as mortgage loans become expensive.”

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

When it comes to stocks, share price isn’t everything. In fact, it isn’t much at all. The real question is, “What is the share price compared to what that tiny piece of the company is actually worth — or will be worth?” Unfortunately for the average retail investor, there are a raft of different formulas to measure that, and different yardsticks for each.

In this segment from the Motley Fool Money podcast, host Chris Hill and Fool senior analysts Aaron Bush, Ron Gross, and Jason Moser address the question of a listener who wants to know their favorite ways to value companies — and at least one method will likely be unfamiliar to you.

A full transcript follows the video.

This video was recorded on Jan. 25, 2019.

Chris Hill: Question from Nick Burgess in Atlanta, Georgia. He writes, “Hey, guys. Love the show and everything it has helped me learn in my young investing journey so far. As I’m only 26 years old, I’m looking for companies that I can stick with for the long haul. I know I need to look for companies within my circle of competence with great management teams, but I always hear about looking for companies that are undervalued. With that in mind, what is your favorite way to value a company? Again, thanks for all that you do.” Thanks for listening, Nick! Thanks for the question! Ron, you’re up first.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019

Companies hate to cut dividends. Knowing the backlash they’ll get from stockholders, many executives and board members consider it a desperate act of last resort. They will halt non-discretionary expenditures, reduce payroll and overhead, and even take on debt in order to maintain distributions.

And that’s exactly why dividend hikes send such a strong bullish signal. A company wouldn’t bump quarterly payouts to $0.60 per share from $0.50 unless it were fairly certain that incoming cash flows would be more than sufficient to cover the higher dividend, with room to spare. The last thing they want is to raise it today only to lower back down tomorrow. A dividend hike is a clear vote of confidence for future success.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019: Sempra Energy(SRE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Sempra Energy’s (NYSE:SRE) acquisition of Oncor was a bit of a coup on Wall Street, as it was able to outbid Berkshire Hathaway for the Texas utility. The victory didn’t come cheap, though, as Sempra had to cough up $9.5 billion and take on quite a bit of debt in the process of completing the deal. Even though the company sees immense potential in the purchase and the growth opportunities that come with it, shares of Sempra have been mostly flat for the past year.

Short Sellers Grow More Selective on Major Pharma Stocks

Pharmaceutical companies usually are involved in a lengthy process of getting their drug candidates to market through clinical trials. There is a fair amount of risk involved, should a study come back negative or a candidate not be approved. Conversely, if a drug gains FDA approval or passes a clinical trial, there can be big upside.

The White House has promised reforms in the health care sector, such as changing the bidding process for drugs and shortening the FDA approval process. It has yet to be seen how much headway they can actually make with these reforms.

Keep in mind that short sellers betting against big pharma are taking on an added risk. They have to pay out the ongoing high dividends on top of the cost of borrowing the shares.

The April 13 short interest data have been compared with the previous figures, and short interest moves in these selected pharmaceutical stocks were mixed.

Short interest in Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) decreased to 81.03 million shares from the previous 98.32 million. The stock was last seen trading at $37.06, within a 52-week range of $31.67 to $39.43.
