Biggest Crash Ever Is (Probably) Coming by 2020: Harry Dent

When the IRS Wants Your Life Insurance Policy

The Securities and Exchange Commission charged two individuals with defrauding elderly investors in a penny stock scheme involving Florida entertainment companies and their “Spongebuddy” product.

The charges are part of the Miami Regional Office’s Recidivist Initiative, which has thus far resulted in enforcement actions against 23 individuals, nine of whom also have been charged by criminal authorities.

The SEC’s complaint charges Joseph Rubbo and Angela Beckcom Rubbo Monaco, both of Coral Springs, Florida, with defrauding investors through offerings by their companies VIP TV LLC, VIP Television Inc., and The Spongebuddy LLC.  Rubbo and Monaco are repeat offenders whose prior securities schemes resulted in criminal convictions against Rubbo and SEC injunctions against both Rubbo and Monaco.

Advisors’ Opinion:

Investing isn’t just for the wealthy. A crop of services make it easy for savers to plant small amounts of money — like that fiver you found in the couch cushions — in the stock market.

Microinvestment apps like Acorns, Stash and Robinhood allow would-be Warren Buffetts to bypass brokerage account minimums and skip the struggle of saving up enough to invest in a mutual fund. We’re not talking about purchasing penny stocks, either, since that’s a practice more likely to make your money disappear than multiply.

Top 10 Penny Stocks To Invest In 2019

Question: I want to invest in an IRA in addition to my 401(k) so I can buy some individual stocks, but I make too much to qualify for the traditional IRA deduction or to make a Roth IRA contribution. Is it worth making a non-deductible traditional IRA contribution?

Answer: The short answer is “probably not.”

To bring readers up to speed, anyone who has earned income can contribute to a traditional IRA, regardless of their income level. However, if you earn more than a certain threshold and can participate in an employer’s retirement plan such as a 401(k), you may not be able to take a tax deduction for your contributions.

Now, there are still some benefits to making non-deductible traditional IRA contributions. The most significant one is tax deferral. Even if you can’t deduct your contributions, your investments can grow and compound without annual capital gains or dividend taxes. You won’t have to pay a penny in taxes on your gains until you withdraw them. This can be a valuable feature, especially when it comes to fixed-income investments like bonds or high-dividend stocks.

Top 10 Penny Stocks To Invest In 2019: Sirius XM Radio Inc.(SIRI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    The latest earnings report from satellite radio monopoly Sirius XM (NASDAQ:SIRI) had to please its shareholders, especially given that it delivered record revenue for the period. But as it continues its integration of Pandora, which it acquired last year, there remain some questions, particularly about what is in store for the company in the post-Howard Stern era. (The iconic shock jock’s contract includes only a couple more years of him as a on-air personality.)

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Pandora seemed to be left for dead last summer. Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI) abandoned plans to acquire Pandora, settling for a more cost-effective minority stake in the streaming platform. With Sirius XM content to ride shotgun instead of taking the wheel and listener numbers languishing, investors started dumping the stock through the latter half of last year.

    The VISE acronym stands for:

    Visa (NYSE:V) Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG) Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA)

    Each of these four companies brings clear-cut competitive advantages to the table that should allow it to handily outperform the broader market (and the FANG stocks).

    One of the market’s most unlikely success stories over the past decade could be cooling down. Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) hit a 12-year-high on Monday, only to trade lower on Tuesday following an analyst downgrade.

    At least one bull is growing more bullish on Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). Bank of America/Merrill Lynch analyst Jessica Reif just boosted her share price target on the satellite radio giant from $7 to $8.

Top Penny Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Penny stocks get a bad rap — and it’s somewhat well-deserved. While a price below $5 might make a stock seem “cheap,” that’s actually not the case. An investor’s ownership of a company on a percentage basis, and the valuation of that company, is what matters. Whether a stock is priced at $4, $0.40, or $400 doesn’t in and of itself affect the potential gains — or losses — in that stock. The best penny stocks to buy shouldn’t be buys because of their price — but rather their value.

Meanwhile, small- and micro-cap stocks can be riskier than their larger counterparts. And in those stocks, unethical players have a better chance of executing “pump-and-dump” campaigns or otherwise flying under the radar of regulators. That’s one reason (of several) why many institutional investors won’t own stocks that trade under $5.

All that said, a bad reputation can create opportunities in the micro-cap and small-cap spaces — and some of those opportunities have share prices under $5, traditionally the cut-off for penny stocks. Here are three of the most attractive penny stocks — for reasons well beyond their seemingly cheap prices.

Top 5 Penny Stocks For 2019

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported Thursday morning that U.S. natural gas stockpiles increased by 86 billion cubic feet for the week ending September 14.

Analysts were expecting a storage injection of around 86 billion cubic feet. The five-year average for the week is an injection of 76 billion cubic feet, and last year’s storage increase for the week totaled 96 billion cubic feet. Natural gas inventories rose by 63 billion cubic feet in the week ending September 7.

Plains where a weather system is tracking through. Weak weather systems will impact the far northern US this weekend, while remaining warmer than normal over the rest of the country, but not quite as hot as currently across the southern US. High pressure will strengthen across the southeastern US next week, but w/stronger cool shots N. Plains. www.natgasweather.com/
