Top Stocks To Invest In 2019

When World War II ended, no industry was stronger or more important than American steel.

But over the last 60 years, the industry has suffered a steady decline, becoming less competitive and far less central to the US economy.

Immediately after the war, the global demand for steel was more voracious than ever. Mills owned by foreign competitors had been devastated by the bombings. Cities in Europe and Asia needed to rebuild, and American cities were growing rapidly as well. Demand for new cars was great, and the Interstate Highway was under construction.

America’s steel mills were producing steel at a furious pace, making more than half the world’s steel in the late 1940s, and about 40% of the world’s steel throughout the 1950s.

In the 10 years starting in 1948, American steel mills averaged nearly 700,000 workers. Today only 83,000 people still work in the nation’s steel mills.

Manufacturing changes

Part of that decline is due to much more efficient processes. The basic oxygen furnaces and continuous casters now in use can make steel using a fraction of the work, energy and manpower required by open hearth furnaces the industry used during its heyday.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Friday
    The Lira slumped 6% on news that the Trump administration is willing to increase economic sanctions on the embattled country unless it releases Andrew Brunson, an American evangelical pastor who has been detained. Markets spent most of Thursday cheering trade developments between U.S. and China, largely ignoring this ongoing drama. However, it’s important to remember that Turkey’s currency crisis may be a tremendous profit opportunity. Here’s what you need to know. Semiconductor shares fell this morning as investors worried that the two-year surge in chip companies could be losing steam. Shares of Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT) fell more than 5% after the world’s largest semiconductor company fell short of quarterly expectations and issued a rather unimpressive outlook. The news pulled down shares of Micron Technology (Nasdaq: MU) and Intel Corporation (NYSE: INTU).

    A light day of earnings reports features just Deere & Company (NYSE: DE). The agricultural machinery giant will attempt to keep momentum going despite the ongoing slump in farm incomes around the country. With soybean and corn prices moving lower, many farmers might now be able to purchase “new paint” – also known as new machinery. This factor could impact the company’s forward guidance. Shares of NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) were off 2.5% after the firm reported quarterly earnings after the bell Thursday. The firm topped Wall Street earnings expectations by 10 cents with a $1.76 figure. However, the firm reduced its current quarter guidance due to falling demand in the cryptocurrency industry. Shares of Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) popped more than 7% after the firm reported stronger than expected same-story growth and positive earnings expectation. The firm r

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

What happened

Shares of Net1 UEPS Technologies (NASDAQ:UEPS) jumped 15.7% on Friday after the alternative-payment systems specialist announced stronger-than-expected fiscal third-quarter 2018 results and an encouraging development regarding its social grants payments contract in South Africa.

Net1 UEPS’ quarterly revenue grew 10% year over year to $162.7 million, and translated to GAAP earnings of $3 million, or $0.05 per share. On a non-GAAP basis, however — which notably adjusts for one-time items like stock-based compensation and asset-impairment costs — earnings arrived at $53.8 million, or $0.95 per share, including a $0.52-per-share fair-value adjustment related to its investment in South African mobile operator CellC. Through that lens, Net1 UEPS handily beat expectations for adjusted earnings of $0.42 per share on revenue of $146.8 million.

    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.com to 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

We’ve also included the stock’s first-day pop (or decline) and its return as of the most recent close. Spotify Technology S.A.

Real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield is the both the largest potential IPO ($500 million) and the largest based on trailing 12-month sales ($7.23 billion). The pipeline is again heavy on health care offerings (11), industrials (five), financials (five) and, in a bit of a comeback, energy (four).

Hot Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Brexit has some companies running scared. But not the tech industry.

Tech companies have announced a series of new investments in the United Kingdom even as major business groups warn that leaving the European Union could result in dire consequences.

The latest vote of confidence comes from US software titan Salesforce (CRM), which has committed to investing $2.5 billion over the next five years to help grow its business in the United Kingdom.

“Our commitment to driving growth, innovation and customer success in the region has never been stronger,” CEO Marc Benioff said in a statement.

Salesforce has plenty of company. Amazon (AMZN) announced last week that it would hire another 2,500 workers in the United Kingdom, bringing its total workforce in the country to over 27,500.

Mubadala, an investment company based in Abu Dhabi, announced this week that it would team up with Japan’s SoftBank (SFTBF) on a $400 million European tech fund based in London.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    There’s a lot to like about NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA). The graphics specialist has been clocking blistering growth quarter after quarter, thanks to solid demand for its chips across several verticals such as PC gaming, self-driving cars, virtual reality, and cloud computing. However, the company dividend is one area in which NVIDIA lacks big-time.

    Do I Get Long Google Now?

    I think I do, but as always, carefully. News broke last week that Amazon had halted the purchase of high revenue advertising space on Google search results. Alphabet’s stock did not even skip a beat. I would have liked to have seen some scattered weakness on this news, and I spent almost the entire day Monday bidding for these shares below the market, without ever really coming that close to buying any.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Our Biggest Loser… And A Bunch Of Big Wins

On January 17, the company made a statement about its upcoming fourth-quarter earnings release, warning that revenue would likely be near the lower end of its guidance range. Investors didn’t take kindly to the news and sent shares tumbling by roughly 30%… well below our 15% trailing stop-loss. We ended up closing out with a 35% loss on the trade.
