Top 10 Financial Stocks For 2021

Our favorite pick in the gold mining space is attempting to recreate history.

Back in March, Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon told readers about a unique gold mining company that is miles ahead of its competitors: Goldcorp Inc. (NYSE: GG)

“You should without a doubt not only own gold, but also own some gold miners. I believe Goldcorp is the best mining company to own right now,” he said. “Its past shows that it has the ability to innovate and come out stronger on the other side.”

You see, in March 2000, the company launched the “Goldcorp Challenge.” Goldcorp put up $575,000 and essentially said “Tell us where to drill.”

The response was incredible.

14,000 people from all walks of life showed up from over 50 countries around the world. Physicists, students, military officers, engineers, geologists – anybody you can think of…

Pundits touted the challenge as a disaster, predicting that it would expose the company to a hostile takeover – but the joke was on them. Goldcorp ended up with geological and target data that it had never had access to before.

    Now, here’s a closer look at today’s Money Morning insight, the most important market events, and stocks to watch.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Despite some progress in trade talks between the United States and China, China warned its citizens about trouble ahead for its economy. This morning, the Chinese government predicted the nation’s economy would grow between a rate of 6% and 6.5% in the year ahead. This figure would represent a slowdown from last year’s expansion rate of 6.6% and would be the lowest growth total in 30 years. Ongoing tensions between the United States and China have cooled in recent weeks. U.S. President Donald Trump said that the two nations are “very, very close” to a deal and a “signing summit.” Health insurance companies are under pressure after the U.S. House of Representatives unveiled a “Medicare for all” bill. Although the bill has very little chance of passing in the current session of Congress, investors are unnerved about the growing desire in Washington to shift to a single-payer model. Although there might be an opportunity for companies like Cigna Corp. (NYSE: CI) and UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) to rebound, don’t expect the gains to last long. Many analysts feel that health insurance stocks are ripe for a sharp downturn when Democratic nominees for president begin debating their healthcare positions in the fall. Shares of Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) are falling again in pre-market hours. The latest bad news came after the company received another downgrade – this one from Barclays Plc. (NYSE: BCS). The British bank slashed its price target from $210 to $192 per share and said that the company has undermined its own narrative around the Model 3. “With lower margins not likely to be offset by increased volumes and cost saves, we cut our PT to $192 and remain underweight…” the bank wrote. The price target of $192 represents downside of 32.7% from Tuesday’s closing price.

    Stocks to Watch Today: AMZN, BBBY, BCS, CRM
    Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) shares pushed higher after the e-commerce giant received an upgrade from Evercore. The analysts hiked the price target from $1,800 to $1,965 on expectations of higher gross profits. “In this note, we make the case that given Amazon’s shifting business mix,” analysts wrote, “the pace of gross profit growth has become a more relevant indicator of the health of the business, and as such, should be the key metric used to value the company.” Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ: BBBY) fell 3.5% after the firm received a stock downgrade from Barclays Plc. (NYSE: BCS). The investment bank said it is concerned about the retail firm’s ongoing restructuring. Barclays dropped its price target for BBBY stock from $15 to $13, citing concerns about retail traffic trends and gross margin growth. Salesforce.com Inc.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock. Look for other earnings reports from Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU), Barclays PLC (NYSE: BCS), Boyd Gaming (NYSE: BYD), Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), Dropbox (NYSE: DBX), First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE), Kraft Hein

Tanger in 1981. The company is headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Tanger Factory Outlet Centers’ (NYSE:SKT) shares are trading near 10-year lows. The real estate investment trust’s (REIT) yield of 6.8% hasn’t been this high since the 2007-2009 recession. Is this a buying opportunity for a company with a 25-year history of annual dividend increases, or is the so-called “retail apocalypse” claiming another victim?

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (NYSE:SKT), one of the biggest outlet center operators in North America, has seen its stock fall 34% over the last three years amid concerns about rising vacancy rates and broader pressures in the industry. Even if brick-and-mortar retail proves to be more durable than some think, there’s still the risk that Tanger will struggle to pass along rent hikes as landlords generally like to do.

Top Safest Stocks For 2019

The year 2018 has been volatile for the markets. Stocks rapidly climbed to record territory early in the year before finally posting a long-awaited correction. And the energy market has seen a dramatic rise in oil prices that’s helped to bolster prospects for oil and natural gas related companies. Yet for conservative investors, one popular investment that most see as being particularly safe has turned out to be a big loser, and that’s forcing many people — especially retirees — to reconsider how they invest more broadly.

Retirees and those approaching the end of their careers often are advised to reduce stock market exposure. Instead, many end up putting larger percentages of their savings into fixed-income investments like Treasury bonds. Although Treasuries are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, making them the safest dollar-denominated debt instruments on the planet, they are far from risk-free. As many retirees are learning the hard way in 2018, Treasury bonds can lose money, and current trends suggest that those tough times could continue.

Goldfinger is my favorite James Bond movie. Best villain. Best majordomo. Best bad-girl-turns-good-girl. Best one-liners. All of it.

Even funnier is the villain’s, the portly Aurelius Goldfinger, obsession with one of the world’s worst investments: gold. But, he was a Bond villain. And gold is the currency of Bond villains, pirates, and South African mercenaries.

It doesn’t belong in a portfolio.

Now, before the goldbugs come after me with pitchforks and torches, let me share with you a few nuggets (ha!) from Warren Buffett, another guy who thinks gold is a lousy place to put one’s money.

Here’s his most succinct quote regarding that belief:

“…If you took all of the gold in the world, it would roughly make a cube 67 feet on a side… it would be worth at today’s market prices about $7 trillion, that’s probably about a third of the value of all the stocks in the United States… For $7 trillion, you could have all the farmland in the United States, you could have about seven Exxon Mobils (NYSE: XOM) and you could still have $1 trillion of walking around money…”

In this Industry Focus: Financials clip, Michael Douglass and Matt Frankel parse Buffett’s reasoning for Berkshire’s massive Apple investment.

A full transcript follows the video.

This video was recorded on May 7, 2018.

Michael Douglass: Alright, Matt, let’s not bury the lede, because these are the things people really wanted to talk to anyways, right? Apple. Berkshire just bought 75 million more shares, and Buffett was quite bullish on the stock at the meeting.

Matt Frankel: Yeah. This makes Berkshire’s stake in Apple about 5% of the company, which doesn’t sound like much, but this is $45 billion worth of stock we’re talking about. So, this is not only Berkshire’s biggest stock investment now, this is one of the biggest parts of Berkshire in general. It’s about 10% of the company’s market cap. Buffett loves Apple for several reasons. It’s really morphed into a Buffett stock, I guess I would say.
