Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

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…”

Best Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

&l;p&g;Life insurance is a fundamental risk management tool for a secure financial lifestyle. Primarily, it functions as an income replacement insurance product during an individual&a;rsquo;s working years. In many cases, life insurance is set up to provide financial security for family members or to pay off liabilities in the event of an untimely and premature death. Because the likelihood of the death of the insured occurring during working years is relatively low, but the impact would be devastating, insurance is a perfect fit for the situation. However, many people not only buy term insurance, but they also buy a permanent life insurance product. Permanent life insurance is different than term insurance as it offers the potential of an investment component or cash value in addition to life insurance coverage. Because these insurance products will last for life, past your working years and through retirement, it is important to think about permanent products as assets that can also help support a secure retirement.

Best Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Exelixis, Inc.(EXEL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Tuesday was an upbeat day on Wall Street — the Dow Jones Industrials climbed more than 100 points, and other major market indexes posted gains of around half a percent. A strong economy and optimism about the upcoming earnings results for the third-quarter have helped boost market confidence over the past month, and even issues like tariff disputes and the midterm elections haven’t been enough to push the key stock indexes far off their record highs. Yet even though investors were in a good mood generally Tuesday, company-specific bad news sent some shares lower. SandRidge Energy (NYSE:SD), Sonos (NASDAQ:SONO), and Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these companies to tell you why their shares did so poorly.

    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    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. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

The move comes after a calamitous year for GE, which saw the company become the worst-performing Dow component of 2017.

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now: lululemon athletica inc.(LULU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) has come a long way in a few short years. After an amazing start in pioneering the specialty athletic apparel business with its emphasis on yoga, Lululemon looked like it gave all of its promise away when it succumbed to quality control problems. The recovery has been long and difficult, but now, Lululemon is finding new ways to move forward, and its efforts have paid off with soaring share prices and new record highs for the stock.

  • [By John Ballard]

    Shares of lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) surged to new all-time highs after another monster earnings report at the end of August. Revenue climbed 25% year over year, fueled by strong comparable-store sales of 10% and online sales growth of 48%. This is a massive acceleration over the year-ago quarter’s performance of 13% growth in sales. 

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) is a relatively minor player in the athletic apparel industry, but that could change over the next decade or so. The retailer is enjoying surging demand for its yoga-inspired product lines and has hiked its 2018 outlook in each of the last two quarterly reports. Revenue for the most recent period jumped 25% to $725 million thanks to robust customer traffic in both its physical stores and its online sales channel.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Lululemon Athletica Inc. (NASDAQ: LULU) is poised to post its most recent quarterly results Thursday. The consensus forecast sees $0.46 in EPS and $616.31 million in revenue. Shares closed at $106.18 apiece. The consensus price target is $94.14, and the 52-week range is $47.26 to $107.49.

    It’s hard to blame people for feeling like retail earnings go on and on, but the end of the road is in sight. 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. (NASDAQ: LULU) are both scheduled to report next week, marking two more chances to get a sense of how consumers are doing. So far, they seem to be faring pretty well, if you look at the majority of retailers reporting this quarter and April retail sales. Consumer discretionary was one of the few sectors to post gains Thursday. One question, however, is if the rise in gas prices to $3 a gallon this spring might put a brake on consumer spending.

The company's  digital capabilities, diversified business model and geographic reach offer a distinctive competitive advantage. It continues to look for strategic investments and buyouts to expand in high-growth regions and key world markets. Interpublic’s consistent efforts to reward its shareholders with dividend and share repurchases are appreciable. Shares of the company have outperformed its industry in the past year. However, the company’s global presence makes it vulnerable to foreign currency fluctuations. Its cash position is affected by seasonality in business.  Client concentration can be a major hindrance to Interpublic’s business. A debt-laden balance sheet is another concern.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street had its Cinco de Mayo celebration a day early, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished the session with a gain of more than 330 points. Investors were excited about what they saw as a Goldilocks-like reading on the U.S. economy in the April employment report, which featured modest job growth, rock-bottom unemployment rates, and slow enough wage growth to quell inflation fears and give the Federal Reserve latitude to raise interest rates more slowly going forward. Yet some companies still suffered at least perceived setbacks that sent their shares lower. Fluor (NYSE:FLR), Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), and Appian (NASDAQ:APPN) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
