    As this episode drops, we are three years into that very first sampler, which he dubbed simply “Five Stocks for the Next Five Years.” The picks were Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI), Casey’s General Stores (NASDAQ:CASY), FireEye (NASDAQ:FEYE), MercadoLibre (NASDAQ:MELI), and Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) — and we’ll tell you up front that at this stage, David’s far from batting a thousand on the set. Next, he debuts a new sampler. Now, all the recommendations he makes in such sets come from among the 220 or so stocks he oversees in the actual Motley Fool Stock Advisor and Motley Fool Rule Breakers portfolios, which together we call the Supernova Universe. And as he reviewed that big list, it crossed his mind that he could randomly narrow it down to companies starting with one letter and still pull a solid mini portfolio for his fans. Challenge accepted: Enjoy five stocks that start with M, and let’s all hope he was right.

    A maker of commercial and industrial kitchen equipment may seem like an unusual company for Tom and David Gardner to fall in love with — no matter how how high-quality those ovens and food processors are — but Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) is a bit more than that. And the biggest reason why has a lot to do with its CEO, Selim Bassoul, who was brought in specifically to give the company a culture.

  • [By Chris Hill]

    Hill: When you were talking about tuck-in acquisitions, it reminded me of a company that was in the news recently for a change at the top, Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD). It’s a company we’ve followed pretty closely here at The Motley Fool over the past decade. Middleby has done a phenomenal job of growing that business by making those type of tuck-in acquisitions that are very much in their wheelhouse.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) has been a big player in the kitchen equipment industry for a long time. Yet despite moves intended to grow its business and expand more aggressively into the consumer appliance space, Middleby hasn’t been able to make much progress for shareholders since mid-2015. The moves Middleby initiated back then in response to challenging conditions have taken a lot of effort, but the results haven’t been as clear as many would have liked.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The stock market had a generally solid performance on Monday, with large-cap indexes posting modest gains even as benchmarks that track the changes of smaller stocks underperformed. The big news of the day came on the trade front, where the White House intervened to reverse previous policy with respect to Chinese smartphone giant ZTE in an apparent effort to gain favor with the world’s most populous nation and second-largest economic power. Investors looked for potential winners from the thawing of relations with China, but not all stocks were able to avoid significant losses. Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB), Synchronoss Technologies (NASDAQ:SNCR), and DHX Media (NASDAQ:DHXM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has been on the ropes for several quarters now, as smartwatches broadly cannibalize the basic fitness tracker category that has long been the core of Fitbit’s business. The good news is that Fitbit recognized the market’s pending transition years ago, and started acquiring defunct companies that contained the technological pieces that could underpin its own smartwatch ambitions. While the first product that came from those efforts (the Ionic) flopped, the second (the Versa) is performing significantly better in the marketplace for wearables.

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    ValuEngine upgraded shares of Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) from a sell rating to a hold rating in a research report report published on Wednesday.

Bank of America reaffirmed an underperform rating on shares of Fitbit in a research note on Tuesday, February 27th. Morgan Stanley downgraded shares of Fitbit from an equal weight rating to an underweight rating and decreased their price target for the company from $5.00 to $4.00 in a research note on Monday, April 2nd. Finally, Zacks Investment Research downgraded shares of Fitbit from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research note on Tuesday, February 27th. Five research analysts have rated the stock with a sell rating, ten have given a hold rating and six have issued a buy rating to the company’s stock. Fitbit has an average rating of Hold and a consensus price target of $6.16.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

U.S. home prices are on a roll. And as we head into the New Year, I am expecting another record year for home prices in 2018. Today, I am going to reveal the safest, easiest and most profitable way to benefit from this trend.

Fueled by record-low interest rates and housing inventories, home prices in the United States hit another all-time high in 2017.

The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-City Composite Home Price NSA (SPCS20) Index measures the value of residential real estate in 20 major U.S. metropolitan areas, including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago. The most recent update showed that the index expanded 6.1% to 203 in August, breaking the previous all-time high of 198 from July of 2007. Take a look below.

SPCS20 Index Level Since July 2007

Looking forward, I am expecting another record year. Not only will interest rates remain relatively low, but I see no short-term solution to historically low housing inventories.
