Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

Wall Street on Monday didn’t just cash in on one winner, or a daily double, or even a trifecta. It notched a stock market-style superfecta, with all four major U.S. stock indexes — representing blue chip names, technology stocks, small caps and large-company stocks — all closing at record highs on the same day for the first time in 17 years.

The post-election rally began two weeks ago with so-called “Red Stocks” ripping higher after Republican Donald Trump’s surprise win on Nov. 8. The rally, which has been fueled by hopes that the president-elect’s growth-friendly policies will finally jolt the U.S. economy out of its multi-year doldrums, has spread to virtually every corner of the stock market.

All-time highs were in abundance to start the week: Blue chips in the Dow Jones industrial average closed up 89 points to a record 18,956.69, extending its 2016 gain to nearly 9%. The benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500 finished 0.8% higher at 2198.18, its highest close ever. The tech-packed Nasdaq composite rallied 0.9% to a record 5368.86. And the Russell 2000, a stock index filled with the market’s smallest companies, extended its winning streak to 12 sessions on its way to an all time record close of 1322.23 and a 16.4% gain for the year. That is the Russell 2000’s longest winning streak since June 2003.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    So where am I going to invest my capital? While I’m still refining my list, here are seven stocks that I currently own that I’m strongly considering adding to:

    Hubspot (NYSE: HUBS) — A software-as-a-service provider that is pioneering the shift toward “inbound” marketing. HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider of Taser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-led payroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE) — The company’s push to the cloud is driving double-digit gains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — A software-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in several niche markets.  BlackLine (NASDAQ: BL) — A software company that is attempting to bring the accounting process into the 21st century. 

    All seven of these businesses are poised to deliver double-digit organic revenue and profit growth over the next five years. That’s a prospect I find quite enticing, and I think the odds are very favorable that they’ll outperform Apple as a group from here.

    The Dow was flat this morning as major banks report earnings. Shares of JPMorgan Chase added nearly 1% after the company reported a record Q2 profit. The company also reported stronger results from its trading division, which likely benefited from recent market volatility. Its earnings per share of $2.29 was $0.07 above the average estimate of $2.22. China’s trade surplus against the United States hit a new record in June. Many economists are concerned that this news could cause U.S. President Donald Trump to escalate his tariff battle with China. Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to hit another $200 billion in Chinese goods with a 10% tariff. Trump has demanded that China cut down on its surplus.

Around a third of Americans expect that Social Security will be a major source of retirement income. And they’re right. Since Americans have saved far too little for retirement, a majority of retirees depend on Social Security to provide at least half their household income.

Here’s the problem. Not only is Social Security not designed to replace so much of your pre-retirement income, but many people end up making their Social Security benefits smaller than they should be. This happens because Americans don’t understand how to maximize the money they’ll receive from Social Security. 

You may be one of those Americans — unless you’re aware that these three things will make your Social Security benefits smaller.

1. Working less than 35 years

Social Security calculates the standard benefit you’ll receive by using a formula that determines your average wages over your career, adjusted to account for inflation. The period of time Social Security looks at is 35 years. If you’ve worked less than 35 years when your average is calculated, your average wage will be much smaller.

Best Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now

This stock’s low price isn’t going to last forever — it’s time to get in while the getting’s good.

One of the main goals of my premium newsletter High-Yield Investing is stability. I like industries that don’t go through unpredictable hot and cold cycles. Student Transportation (NYSE: STB) is a textbook example.

Millions of kids must travel to and from school each day, rain or shine. With a national fleet of school buses and a stack of contracts with various school districts, the company generates consistent, recurring income to share with its stockholders. That, along with its current yield of 5.9%, is why STB remains one of my readers’ favorite stocks.

My next recommendation enjoys similar stability thanks to another fact of life — babies.

In the unpredictable financial world, there are few things as guaranteed as birth rates. There were approximately 4 million births in the U.S. last year, 4 million give or take in 2016, 4 million in 2015, 4 million in 2014, 4 million in 2013. I could go on, all the way back to the 1950s, with little deviation year to year.
