Advisors’ Opinion:

    For example, this indicator can help traders avoid stocks that suffer big drops on earnings misses since momentum often slows in these stocks ahead of the earnings announcement. The chart of Priceline.com (NASDAQ: PCLN) below offers an example.

    For example, owning just one share of The Priceline Group Inc. (Nasdaq: PCLN) would cost $1,921.53. But some of these stocks aren’t quite as “expensive” as they seem…

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Analysis focus: RARE

Ultragenyx (NASDAQ:RARE), which we recommended as a buy in October 2017 when it was trading at 52-week lows, has been up 50% since our recommendation. We recommended it on the basis of an upcoming approval of its Sly syndrome treatment MEPSEVII in November – which happened; and another approval of borosumab (Crysvita) in April – which also happened. We also liked its cash position, both then and now, and its sale of a Rare Disease Priority Review voucher for $130mn. We didn’t like its two trial failures from before, and its overpaid purchase of another drug company – but those were already factored into the low price, and the new catalysts, we assumed, would take the stock higher. This too, happened.

The latest news for RARE Is that its Crysvita showed that it could beat conventional therapy in pediatric patients with X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH), an inherited form of rickets (vitamin D deficiency). These conventional therapies for this rare disease, with about 12,000 patients in the US, are oral phosphate and active vitamin D, which have been used traditionally to improve pediatric rickets. Borosumab demonstrated superiority to these therapies, as we would expect since its approval. The molecule is a “fully human recombinant monoclonla IgG1 antibody that binds to (inhibits) the phosphaturic hormone fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), a hormone that reduces blood levels of phosphorus and active vitamin D by regulating phosphate excretion and active vitamin D production by the kidney.”

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Aphria Inc. (APHQF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    The North American Marijuana Index, which tracks the leading cannabis stocks in the U.S. and Canada, is right about where it was to start the year despite surging over the past few months of 2017. The same could be said for one of Canada’s larger growers. Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) stock has risen in recent weeks, but it’s still a bit below a peak it achieved in January. 

  • [By Sean Williams]

    According to BNN Bloomberg, Ontario-based Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) was, at one time, the apple of Coke’s eye. A source familiar with the matter notes that Coca-Cola held talks with senior management at Aphria a few months ago, but that no agreement was reached. The thing is, Aphria has just as much of a pedigree as a partner as Aurora Cannabis does. 

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Since we’re already talking about Aurora and Canopy, it makes sense to jump to the Canadian market next. Both companies are poised to enjoy tremendous sales growth with the opening of the Canadian recreational market. However, I’d put Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF), Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), and Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) on the list for top stocks for the Canadian market as well. Each of these three companies could also be major players in Germany alongside Aurora and Canopy.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Right now, Cronos Group commands a market cap that’s just north of $1 billion. By comparison, Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) has 230,000 kilograms of fully funded capacity under construction, and it’s only valued at $1.6 billion. Aphria One and Aphria Diamond (the company’s joint venture with Double Diamond Farms) both dwarf Peace Naturals with respective annual yields of 100,000 kilograms and 120,000 kilograms. This is noteworthy since the cannabis industry often benefits from economies of scale. In other words, an increase in production usually leads to a decrease in costs, at least on a per-gram basis. 

  • [By Keith Speights]

    If year-to-date performance were the deciding factor on which stock to buy, there would be no contest between Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) and MariMed (NASDAQOTH:MRMD). Aphria has lost nearly half of its market cap. MariMed ranked as the best-performing marijuana stock of the first half of 2018. Its share price is now up more than 260% so far this year.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc.(GLPI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Janney Montgomery Scott LLC lifted its stake in Gaming and Leisure Properties Inc (NASDAQ:GLPI) by 13.0% during the second quarter, according to the company in its most recent Form 13F filing with the SEC. The fund owned 22,286 shares of the real estate investment trust’s stock after acquiring an additional 2,564 shares during the quarter. Janney Montgomery Scott LLC’s holdings in Gaming and Leisure Properties were worth $798,000 as of its most recent SEC filing.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now: VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VTGN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Vistagen Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VTGN) was given a $6.00 price target by analysts at Oppenheimer Holdings Inc.. The firm currently has a buy rating on the stock.

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    Take VistaGen Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: VTGN) for example. While not necessarily a scam, this one didn’t do investors any favors.

    In Dec. 2017, shares jumped 177.17%, from $0.92 to $2.55 in just one day. Investors who bought at $2.55 ended up losing over 50% of their money when the stock quickly went back down to $1.05 in less than two weeks.

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    For instance, VistaGen Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: VTGN) shot up 177%, from $0.92 to $2.55, on Dec. 6, when it announced it won a patent for its CNS treatment.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: GE, AMZN, JD
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) shares are under pressure after the stock received a downgrade from Swiss bank UBS Group AG (NYSE: UBS). The investment bank cut its price target for GE from $16 to $13. The bank cited ongoing struggles at GE’s power division as it continues to lose market share. Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) stock is on pace to overtake Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) after it became the second company to achieve a $1 trillion market capitalization. The stock price has now doubled in a year thanks to its strong growth in retail sales and cloud computing. Apple needed 38 years to achieve the $1 trillion market cap while Amazon needed just 21 years. With that said, both AMZN and AAPL now comprise 8% of the entire S&P 500 market cap. Shares in JD.com Inc. (Nasdaq: JD) fell more than 5% in pre-market hours. Shares are on the decline after police said that its billionaire founder was arrested last week on charges of sexual assault. Look for additional earnings reports from Ctrip.com International Ltd. (Nasdaq: CTRP), Guidewire Software Inc. (Nasdaq: GWRE), Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: OLLI), Vera Bradley Inc.

Best Casino Stocks To Own For 2019

Over the years, I’ve been a big fan of investing in the gaming sector. Long term abnormal returns in sin stocks are well documented, but even in the short term, volatility has often created instances of asymmetric risk/reward opportunities. Over the past several years, and more so than international players like Wynn Resorts (WYNN) or Melco Resorts (MLCO), the regional casino players have truly outperformed. That should not be a surprise given the rest of the market has reacted a similar way: domestic sales good, international sales bad. The United States just has been the place to invest, with regionals seeing strong lift from accelerating consumer confidence and accompanying healthy GDP growth; tax reform and industry consolidation have helped as well. Operationally, margins have seen a lot of lift from cost cutting and less promotional spending.

The past is not the future, and unfortunately Boyd Gaming (BYD) looks to have peaked. Poor market positioning, demographic and population headwinds, and cost pressure from wages all are set to combine to limit EBITDA growth and pressure investor sentiment. With shares near all-time highs, investors would be none the wiser that problems are on the horizon, but I see headwinds. My expectation is for 25-30% downside, with a pair trade against regional peer standout Red Rock Resorts (RRR) set to be a strong generator of potential alpha.

Today is a special day for Apple shareholders, and a celebration of capitalism. The world&s;s first trillion dollar company.

Of course, it is just a number. What&s;s so important about crossing&a;nbsp;a threshold from $999,999,999 to $1 trillion, anyway? Several things make it important.

Most obvious – it&s;s a first.&a;nbsp;How fitting that a company so dedicated to being first; that is&a;mdash;to being innovative,&a;nbsp;is the first to eclipse&a;nbsp;the trillion dollar mark.

The&a;nbsp;second&a;nbsp;reason is because&a;nbsp;we derive meaning from numbers. Not just the numbers themselves, but from how we associate them to time. Whether it&s;s birthdays, calendar years, or even market capitalization, numbers provide context. Goal posts, if you will.&a;nbsp;Chapter markers, in&a;nbsp;the evolving story of life.

10 Top Penny Stocks to Watch This Week

Last week’s best-performing penny stock was Cartesian Inc. (OTCMKTS: CRTN), a management consulting company that locked in an explosive gain of over 170%. That shows there’s still money to be made in stocks even as the market lost $768 billion last week, which is why we’re bringing you top penny stock to watch this week.

Last Wednesday (March 21), Cartesian stock rocketed a staggering 123% in the last two hours of trading. While the company said it has issued no new information that would have caused its share price to sharply rise, Cartesian is set to announce its earnings on Tuesday (March 27), a sign traders might be optimistic about earnings.

While Cartesian started the week at $0.15 and closed at $0.38, providing a total gain of 170%, that sort of unpredictability in penny stocks shows why it’s important for investors to have a leg up on their competition.

After looking at this week’s penny stock gainers, we’ll give you that leg up with one of our top-rated penny stocks from our proprietary stock ranking system…

While these penny stocks provided shareholders with spectacular gains last weekend, they also illustrated the dangers involved with investing in penny stocks.

You see, if a penny stock like Cartesian Inc. can jump 170% in a few hours, it can fall to $0.00 in the same amount of time.

The risk of these kinds of losses is why we follow five rules for investing in penny stocks – take a look at our rules for investing in penny stocks on the right.

Rules for Safely Trading Penny Stocks
No more than 2% of your overall stock portfolio should consist of penny stocks.
Avoid stocks with average daily trading volume of less than 500,000 shares.
Avoid penny stocks being aggressively promoted on public discussion forums or websites not focused on investing.

Here are the top three warning signs of a shell company scam, according to the SEC and FINRA…

If a company has been dormant for many years and then brought back to life.
If a company has changed its name and, especially, business focus multiple times.
Check for massive reverse stock splits like 1-for-20,000 or 1-for-50,000.

With last week’s gains already on the books, we’re looking at the top penny stock to buy for future profit.

Determining which penny stocks will help investors limit the risk of losing their investment can be difficult. That’s why our team uses the Money Morning Stock VQScore.

Developed from our proprietary valuation system, the VQScore identifies undervalued stocks with the highest profit potential by using a blended analysis of a company’s earnings potential, growth rate, earnings-per-share acceleration, and market volume.

The VQScore system runs on a scale of 1 to 4, with 4 indicating a stock with strong earnings and growth potential.

Our top penny stock for this week has a perfect VQScore of 4 – and for good reason.

The company’s return on equity (ROE) – the amount of profit a company can provide in earnings over the amount of equity they’ve raised – is over 400% higher than its industry’s average.

Here’s our top penny stock for this week and how you can profit…
