Top 10 Value Stocks To Buy For 2019

The big day is rapidly approaching. In just over a month, on Oct. 17, recreational marijuana will go on sale in licensed dispensaries throughout Canada. When fully legal, the sale of adult-use weed is expected to usher in high demand and big dollar figures for the industry.

In anticipation of this legalization — and the big profits that are projected to follow — marijuana stock investors and Wall Street have pushed the valuations of many pot stocks into nosebleed territory. Some of these marijuana stocks are still valued modestly below Wall Street’s consensus price target per share. Conversely, there are a handful of top marijuana stocks whose price targets are well below their current share price. Keeping in mind that Wall Street price targets are nothing more than dart throws by analysts, here are three top marijuana stocks that are expected to lose at least a quarter of their value.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Buy For 2019: lululemon athletica inc.(LULU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos, Jeremy Bowman, and Steve Symington]

    With that in mind, Motley Fool investors scoured the industry for examples of retailers that boast attractive long-run growth opportunities. Read on to find out why Five Below (NASDAQ:FIVE), lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU), and Boot Barn (NYSE:BOOT) topped that list. 

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Meanwhile, Under Armour’s rivals like Nike (NYSE:NKE), Adidas (NasdaqOTC: ADDYY), and lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) all performed well in the survey. Piper Jaffray found that Adidas was the fastest-growing brand in the survey, which follows Adidas’s recent stock surge and sales and profit growth. Its Originals, or classic sneakers, like the Stan Smith and the Superstar were especially popular last year. The Superstar, in fact, was the No. 1-selling sneaker last year, according to NPD Group, dethroning Nike for the first time in more than a decade.  

  • [By John Ballard]

    However, Nike’s core business is still selling sneakers. That’s not going to change, and that’s also why lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) should continue to do fine. Just as Nike has been successful turning a basketball shoe into a fashion statement, Lululemon has accomplished the same in athletic apparel. Both companies are really good at what they do best, and that will protect Lululemon’s competitive position from larger rivals.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

The initial public offering of the world’s biggest maker of electric-vehicle batteries produced its third billionaire in two days as the stock continued to soar in Shenzhen.

Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. jumped by the maximum 10 percent allowed at 11:25 a.m. local time, following a debut increase of 44 percent Monday. That gave the company a market value of about $13.5 billion, pushing the net worth of shareholder Pei Zhenhua, a clean-technology executive, past the $1 billion mark, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

CATL’s founder and top shareholder Zeng Yuqun and his lieutenant Huang Shilin were already cemented on China’s rich list along with Monday’s stock jump. Investors are betting that CATL can fend off rivals Panasonic Corp., which makes power packs with Tesla Inc.; Warren Buffett-backed BYD Co.; and LG Chem Ltd. as the increasing popularity of EVs boosts demand for the batteries that move them.

    Earlier this year, Tallgrass Energy GP (NYSE:TEGP) agreed to acquire its master limited partnership, Tallgrass Energy Partners (NYSE:TEP) in an all-stock deal. This transaction is one of many similar ones in the sector over the past few years as energy infrastructure companies have had to grapple with the fallout of the oil market downturn. Like the deals before it, and those announced afterward, the transaction will create one stronger entity that’s well positioned to grow in the coming years while still offering income-seeking investors a generous income stream. That income with upside makes Tallgrass a stock that investors will want to keep on their radar, especially considering the strength of its financial profile.

    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates.

Today’s earnings from Foot Locker (FL) mean we’re almost there, but that doesn’t mean investors can necessarily take their eyes off the road. For instance, Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ: COST) and lululemon Athletica Inc.

So far, they seem to be faring pretty well, if you look at the majority of retailers reporting this quarter and April retail sales.

    Frankly, today’s big drop shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone. The company told us many months agothat common equity investors would only retain 2% — at most — of the company when it completed its bankruptcy proceedings, yet investors continued to pay a price for its stock that, at one point, would have made Seadrill worth nearly as much as competitorsTransocean(NYSE:RIG),Diamond Offshore(NYSE:DO),andNoble Corporation(NYSE:NE)combined. But a relatively steady decline in the share price, combined with today’s big drop, seems to be finally putting Seadrill more in line with its peers.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

New Jerseys OceanFirst Financial (OCFC) has done okay since I last wrote about the company in January, with the shares more or less tracking with smaller Northeast community banks (or slightly outperforming) and offering a little outperformance relative to larger regional/super-regional banks like Bank of America (BAC), PNC Financial (PNC) and Toronto-Dominion (TD). Organic loan growth has weakened recently as management has chosen to be more disciplined on price, but accretion benefits have been stronger than expected and the companys deposit performance has been good.

OceanFirst is not wildly undervalued, but I think this is a good combination of a below-the-radar growing bank with disciplined management and a good business plan/profile. I believe OceanFirst has more options to pursue M&A in the relatively near term, and I believe the shares should trade in the low-to-mid $30s.

Integrating Sun Is Leading To Some Noise

As is often the case with bank mergers, integrating the Sun deal (completed earlier this year) is leading to a little bit of turbulence in the business. I view this as a part of the cost of doing business, and I believe the long-term benefits to the growth-by-M&A strategy more than outweigh them, but it nevertheless will lead to some choppy performance in 2018.
