Best Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

Every night in 1995, I would deposit money overnight in a different currency…   Sounds strange, I realize.   But back then, as the vice president of a global mutual fund, one of my jobs was to execute our fund's trades.   Once our U.S. trading day was done, we wanted our money to work for us overnight as well. We might put our money into French francs, German marks, or somewhere else – just for the night.   We would find the safest country that was paying the highest interest rate. And we would put our money there overnight. No kidding.   As I'll explain today, what we were doing wasn't anything special…   Big companies like German automaker Volkswagen and Japanese automaker Honda (and thousands of other companies) have cash-management departments that do basically the same thing – on a much larger scale.

Best Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019: Plug Power Inc.(PLUG)

    One of only a few fuel cell technology options for investors, FuelCell Energy focuses on the development of stationary power fuel cell projects for customers ranging from utilities to universities. The company, however, has faced a persistent uphill battle in convincing customers that its solutions represent a viable option to conventional power sources despite support from the government, which came in the form of the investment tax credit. Since 2013, when it reported revenue of $188 million, sales have steadily declined in each year, resulting in a top line of $96 million in 2017. The company’s competitors, on the other hand, have achieved great success in growing sales over the same period of time. Over the past five years, Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP) have grown revenue at compound annual growth rates of 32% and 22%, respectively.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    It might seem odd that the industry’s biggest winner so far this year isn’t growing. In fact, Noodles & Co. (NASDAQ:NDLS) recently posted a quarterly net loss while revenue decreased 5%. But that result still shot past investors’ expectations by showing surprising progress in the casual-dining chain’s recovery efforts. Noodles & Co. has lots of work ahead of it before it can snap out of its four-year stretch of annual net losses. Yet, with shares having fallen by over 80% since 2013, even modestly good news proved to be enough to spark at least a short-term rally in the stock.

Best High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

One thing that investors new to the stock market often don’t look at is a company’s market capitalization, which is the “total market value of a company’s outstanding shares of stock.” This is a much more meaningful metric than, say, stock price, because it tells you how the market values the business. 

If, as an investor, you think that a company’s business could (or should) be worth more than its current market capitalization, then the shares could represent a buying opportunity. Conversely, if a company’s market capitalization seems too high relative to its business opportunities, then it could mean that it’s time to sell the stock.

Image source: Apple.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), arguably the most innovative technology company in the world, is on its way to commanding a market capitalization of $1 trillion, which would make it the first publicly traded company to ever achieve that market value. Assuming a diluted share count of around 5.07 billion (note that Apple has been aggressively buying back stock so this number comes down a lot each quarter), Apple will hit a $1 trillion market capitalization when the stock hits approximately $197.23 per share.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Own Right Now

Ride-sharing app Uber appears to excel in how to be in the news for all the wrong reasons. Earlier this year, the company was accused of turning a blind eye to sexual harassment in the office. Later on, there was a viral video showing its CEO Travis Kalanick berating an Uber driver. Then, this week, it landed in more trouble when it was sued over one of its app features that tracks drivers. But despite the negative publicity, Uber continues to remain one of the highest valued privately held companies and the market continues to await its IPO.

Ubers Financials

But first the numbers. Ubers constant legal battles havent hurt its financials. According to market reports, Uber generated $6.5 billion in revenue last year with gross bookings doubling to $20 billion. Further news leaks suggest that Ubers net revenues grew to $1.7 billion in Q4 2016. But losses continue to mount. Net losses have grown from $2 billion a year ago to $2.8 billion in 2016. But analysts believe that the losses may be beginning to narrow.

    Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Microsoft Corp.(Nasdaq: MSFT), and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) received approval from the U.S. Transportation Department to begin pilot programs for drone delivery services. Missing from the list of approved companies was Amazon.com Inc.(Nasdaq: AMZN). The tech giant has long been an advocate for drone delivery, and its absence came as a surprise to the tech community. It will be a busy day for economic data announcements. Most important will be a report on inflation at 8:30 EDT. Strong price growth has picked up to start the year. This has many economists anticipating that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates to stave off additional inflation. Meanwhile, the Bank of England announced that it will hold its benchmark interest rate at 0.5%. The country is still facing economic uncertainty over Brexit.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: BKNG, SHLD, F
    A weak guidance report has shares of Booking Holdings Inc.(Nasdaq: BKNG) off 6% this morning. Although the travel site operator easily topped Wall Street earnings and revenue expectations, the firm once known as Priceline offered a weak 2018 outlook. That sent investors heading for the exits.
    Sears Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: SHLD) stock popped more than 16% on Wednesday afternoon. The news came after the embattled retail company announced plans to partner with Amazon.comto sell tires. The plan is part of the company’s broader turnaround strategy to make the retail firm profitable again. Ford Motor Co.(NYSE: F) made a stunning announcement on Wednesday. The company said that it will halt production of its F-Series pickup truck. But the move will only be temporary. A fire at a Michigan plant temporarily caused the automotive giant to run out of parts for the top-selling U.S. vehicle. The shutdown could last several weeks, although the company said it has enough parts inventory to last about 12 weeks. Look for additional earnings reports from Nvidia Corp.(Nasdaq: NVDA

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

Natural gas for transportation leader Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) has steadily grown and improved the quality of its business and business results over the past several years. Today’s Clean Energy Fuels is leaner, has a stronger balance sheet, and is in a solid position as a market leader in a growth industry.

But is the stock undervalued? By one metric, book value per share, it looks downright cheap. But management used a massive amount of stock to make ends meet over the past 18 months, destroying a significant amount of shareholder value in the process. Still, the loss of an important tax credit will have multimillion-dollar implications, and the sale of a very profitable part of the business raises questions about the company’s ability to generate positive cash flows this year.

Top Financial Stocks To Buy For 2018

I have some bad news for you…   Stocks could struggle – for as long as two years – after the presidential election next week.   It won't be because of Hillary or Donald's bad political ideas.   It all comes down to the lessons of history we've learned from elections.   You see, politics have a surprisingly large effect on financial markets…   I never would have believed just how powerful an influence politics has on the markets if I hadn't crunched the numbers myself. And the conclusions are even more surprising…   For example, stocks tend to perform better when Democrats are in office. Since 1928, the S&P 500 has risen roughly 8% a year (not including dividends) when Democrats have held the Oval Office. Stocks have increased just 2% a year when Republicans have held office.  

Top Financial Stocks To Buy For 2018: Radient Technologies (RTI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    Some of the stories about how cannabis has changed lives for the better are nothing less than astounding. Take Illinois resident Darren Miller as an example. In 2015 Miller was diagnosed with lung cancer that was later deemed terminal. Miller underwent chemotherapy, without much hope, but also began using high-THC Indica cannabis oil. Miller is alive today, and arguably shouldn’t be.

    Then there’s Floridian Branden Petro. Not only does Petro suffer epilepsy, he commonly experiences seizures stemming from the condition. Nothing has stopped the seizures as quickly or effectively as 200 milligram worth of THC cannabis oil, administered as a nasal spray. Within 20 seconds of using it, it’s as of the seizure never happened.

    And there are millions of other such (and less dramatic) examples, all pointing in the same direction – cannabis has medical value on multiple fronts. Not facilitating its commercialization is a wasted opportunity.

    It’s a notion that’s far from lost on the people that have built Canadian-based Radient Technologies Inc (CVE:RTI) from the round up, recently inking a deal with supplier of cannabinoid extracts, Aurora Cannabis.

    It’s a real accolade. Aurora is one of the largest licensed producers of medical cannabis under Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), and recently began construction on an unprecedented 800,000 square foot production facility in Leduc County, Alberta. This facility, known as “Aurora Sky”, is anticipated to be capable of producing in excess of 100,000 kg of high-quality, low-cost marijuana per year.

    In most regards though, Radient Technologies is the big winner of the deal, as the partnership is apt to put its high-tech facility in full demand, helping to advance the advent of cannabis in all its potential glory.

    It’s a rather amazing science, really. Radient Technologies uses an ingredient-extraction process called microwave assisted proc

    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
