    But, of course, first, we’re going to start talking about insurance more generally, then we’ll be talking about two of our favorite insurance companies, Markel (NYSE:MKL) and Berkshire, and comparing them a little bit to White Mountains and understanding the interplay between those different investments, and how we tend to approach investing in this particular area of the market.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff and Michael Douglass]

    Douglass: Right. I think that’s one of the key things to keep in mind here as a difference between this and a Markel(NYSE:MKL) or a Berkshire. This is a company that really isn’t necessarily trying to find the next great investments that are going to beat the market. What they’re mostly looking to do is invest in sectors through ETFs.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX) traded down about 3.6% Thursday and posted a new 52-week low of $50.36 after closing Wednesday at $52.22. The stock’s 52-week high is $61.94. Volume totaled about 25 million, approaching triple the daily average of around 9 million. The company said this Wednesday that it will close 150 stores, and make other changes.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Recently, Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX)had its second fiscal quarter earnings report, with a muted reaction from the market. Sales increased 14%, but that figure was boosted an extra 5% from the consolidation of the East China business, along with foreign currency tailwinds. While earnings per share grew only 4.4%, that number was negatively impacted by restructuring costs associated with closing Teavana stores, as well as impairments in Switzerland; however, stripping those factors out, EPS was up a strong 17.8% on a non-GAAP basis.

  • [By ]

    Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX) has long had its eye on China growth as critical to its continued success. The company acquired the remaining 50% interest in its joint venture with the East China company last December for full control of over 1,400 stores for $1.4 billion.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

(Published Feb. 26 by Bob Ciura)

Finding stocks that have paid 100 years of dividends is no easy task. Couple this with a 3%-plus starting yield, and the task becomes that much harder.

CenterPoint Energy (NYSE:CNP) is one of a select few blue chip stocks that offers both. In fact, it goes even further – it has a 4% dividend yield.

It makes the list thanks to its steady business model. CenterPoint is an electric and gas utility, which is one of the most stable business models an investor can find.

CenterPoint recently increased its dividend by 4%, to $1.07 per share annualized. This was its 12th year in a row of consecutive dividend growth.

CenterPoint is a Dividend Achiever, a group of 272 stocks with 10-plus years of consecutive dividend increases.

You can see the full Dividend Achievers List here.

Business model

CenterPoint isn’t a run-of-the-mill utility. Most utility stocks are pure-play electric utilities.

We continue to believe that the pharmaceutical industry is selling at an undervalued price. In the semi-annual report, we detailed why we thought it was cheap. We wrote the following:

“As if Valeant (NYSE:VRX) has not given enough pain and anguish to our unitholders, we believepharmaceutical stocks as a group are selling at attractive valuations. They generate their earnings in cash and most of them are selling at less than 10 times cash earnings. Some of them are down more than 50% from their highs, which is what caught our attention initially. It may look like we are adding more emotional fuel to the fire from our experience with Valeant but we look at mispriced stocks on a case-by-case basis. Given our current favorable view of the pharmaceutical industry generally, as next discussed in greater detail, we expect to invest in stocks of more than two or more pharmaceutical companies (that is, to utilize a so-called “basket approach”), in order to reduce the potential adverse effect on fund returns that could result from Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and patent expiration issues faced by a single company.

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

    Compare Tesla’s US story with the likes of Ford (NYSE:F)which mass produces its smaller cars in Mexico to avail of cheaper labor. Trump has already stated that he will slap an import tax on US manufacturers when they bring their cars back to the US for resale. If Trump is true to his word and this indeed takes place, this has to be good for the likes of Tesla. Remember, Tesla will have strong competition in EV’s from the likes of General Motors (NYSE:GM)and Ford in the next few years.

    Alas, we have a lot of Ebenezer Scrooges out there in corporate America that either dont pay dividends at all or dont pay nearly enough of them. Realistically, not every company can be a dividend-paying powerhouse. Cyclical companies like General Motors Company (GM) or Ford Motor Company (F) have wildly erratic businesses and need to keep a little extra cash on hand for the lean years. (Of course, even then, weak share prices have made the pair of them look generous via nearly 5% yields.)

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Huge public companies still prospered this past year despite wild swings between market uncertainty and volatility, punctuated by unexpected political outcomes.

The 2017 Global 2000 is bigger and more valuable in the aggregate than last year’s list, with higher sales, profits, assets and market values. The list as a whole is significantly more valuable from the year prior, with aggregate market capitalization up 10%. Here’s how we crunched the numbers.

Despite slowing GDP figures, China and the U.S., whose companies make up more than 40% of the list, continue to dominate the top 10 list with financial giants including #1 Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) and #4 JPMorgan Chase. China’s two-year stronghold of the top 3 spots was disrupted this year with Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway snagging the third spot, another signal that U.S. companies didn’t suffer terribly from market uncertainty that defined the year, as Berkshire owns many other American staple stocks.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Radient Technologies (RTI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    It’s been a long time in the coming, but there’s no denying the tipping point has been reached — cannabinoids are the foundation for a whole new kind of medicine. And, the work-to-date turning cannabis into pharmaceuticals has been very encouraging.

    Problem: While the premise of cannabinoids as drugs has been validated, the science of creating large quantities of pure cannabinoids remains more ineffective than effective. Radient Technologies Inc (CVE:RTI) is about the change that, leveraging a means of extracting a lot of cannabinoid material from a source, and ensuring the highest-level of purity and quality.

    Radient Technologies manufactures natural ingredients for global customers across a range of industries, including food and beverage, nutrition, supplements, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Using a proprietary, patented technology, Radient’s products are superior in quality and purity while manufactured at a significantly lower cost than other methods thanks to superior yields and efficiency.

    To fully appreciate the science Radient has developed, however, one must understand the alternative methods currently employed.

    With current approaches to create ingredients from an appropriate source, the material with the target compound or molecule in it is soaked in a solvent, heated, and then over the course of several hours the desired ingredient diffuses into the solvent. After filtration, drying, and other processing, that ingredient is finally isolated and then collected.

    It works, but it’s far from ideal. Aside from the fact that this technique doesn’t work very well at large scale, yields are relatively low. Worse, many undesirable components can still be found in the extract, lowering the quality and purity of the ingredient.

    Radient Technologies uses an ingredient-extraction process called microwave assisted processing, or “MAP,” for short.

    Using its patented MAP process, Radient is able to selectiv

    There’s an old business adage…. it’s not so much what you know, but who you know. If that’ s truly the case (and it is), then shareholders in Radient Technologies Inc (CVE:RTI) should be elated. The newest member of the Board of Directors that not already knows a lot of the right people, but has pretty much done all of things Radient would like to accomplish in the near future. That is, he was on the board for another ingredient and chemical company that was eventually acquired, but he also holds a masters degree in engineering. He can do it all, understanding the art and science of the business.

    It’s yet another reason for RTI investors to be enthused.

    Radient Technologies isn’t exactly a new company, but it’s relative notoriety is a fairly new phenomenon.

    The organization, in simplest terms, has developed an ingredient-extraction process called microwave assisted processing, or “MAP,” for short. As the name implies, the use of radio microwaves helps the extraction process along.

    Using its patented MAP process, Radient is able to selectively deposit microwave energy into a biomass (source material) and heat the target elements while leaving other materials in the mix unaltered. The near-instantaneous “in-core” heating that occurs creates pressure which drives out the targeting ingredient or component much faster than more conventional extraction methods. In fact, the pressure-driven process outperforms the conventional extraction on pretty much every front. That is, the technique reduces the extraction time from hours to minutes, delivers a higher active ingredient purity, increases the recovery of actives from often scarce biomass, and uses much less solvent and energy than the more typical approach.

    The technique can, and already has, created natural ingredients for global customers across a range of industries, including food and beverage, nutrition, supplements, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

    At first glance, a new set of rules from the Drug Enforcement Agency unveiled in the middle of December looked like it posed a problem for cannabis-newcomer Radient Technologies Inc (CVE:RTI). By assigning a controlled substances code number to ‘marijuana extract,’ simultaneously distinguishing (and acknowledging the differences of marijuana, hemp and their derivatives as Schedule I substances. As the ruling’s language explained, “This code number will allow DEA and DEA-registered entities to track quantities of this material separately from quantities of marihuana. This, in turn, will aid in complying with relevant treaty provisions.”

    It presents something of an uncertainty, as it was not clear of the DEA also meant hemp and cannabis extracts when it used the term ‘marijuana extract.’ After all, the Drug Enforcement Agency has thus far done a poor job of distinguishing between hemp and marijuana, but has generally erred on the side of grouping everything as marijuana…. even if it didn’t cause a ‘high,’ and even if it did provide a medical benefit. If that was indeed the case, Radient Technologies may well be a non-starter in its quest to get into the cannabis business.

    No need to worry. Though it took weeks to get some much-needed clarification, the DEA has finally explained what it was saying two months ago. Indeed, the new ruling may actually help the medical marijuana — cannabis — along. DEA spokesman Russ Baer said in an e-mail to The Cannabist, “(The rule change) recognizes that there is a potential medical benefit to some of the cannabinoids.”

    Some still worry the wording of the law essentially, even if unintentionally, puts cannabinoids (or CBD) under the purveyance of the DEA; it’s currently not. Even so, if nothing else the ruling has the government moving towards clarity, after acknowledging CBD — the healthy version of the cannabis, and not the one that gets you high — has medical value. The next step is clarifying ho
