Top Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ:COST) is a great company with a pricey stock. I shop at Costco. My late father loved Costco. I have owned Costco stock. But at $243 per share, its opening price on Sept. 10, it has a market cap of $106 billion and an above-average price to earnings ratio of 35 for a retail company expecting sales of about $135 billion when it reports its fiscal year Oct. 4. 

For a retailer, that’s expensive. Walmart (NYSE:WMT) has a market cap of $280 billion on $500 billion in sales.

Retailers sell at a discount to sales because their margins are wafer-thin. Costco usually reports net income in line with the membership fees it collects. During the most recent quarter those fees came to $737 million. Net income attributable to Costco for the quarter was $750 million. 

Customers Win

That means Costco is running the business at break-even, ploughing even the benefits it gets from its credit card relationship with Citigroup (NYSE:C) back into its low, low prices on high-quality goods.

Top Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: Steelcase Inc.(SCS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Rising commodity costs from the Trump administration’s tariffs on steel and aluminum continue to pose a concern for the manufacturer. Herman Miller expects steel inflation to add another $15 million-$20 million to its costs of goods sold annually going forward. However, the company anticipates offsetting this with $30 million-$60 million of yearly productivity savings from various cost-cutting initiatives. 

    That the company quantified the expected effects of tariffs and predicted a productivity offset likely contributed to investors’ buying interest following earnings. It’s interesting to note that competitor Steelcase Inc. (NYSE:SCS) has taken an alternate route, and is raising list prices on customers to protect profitability.

    The company hiked its quarterly dividend by 10% to 0.1975, which on an annualized basis yields 1.9% at the current share price.

    So who will get the loot? Believe it or not, more than half the House’s increase in funding (a $459 million increase compared to fiscal 2018) is going to science programs — $6.7 billion in total. And while the bill is short of specifics, this is money investors can probably expect will be going to satellite makers such as Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Northrop Grumman (NYSE:OA), and Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR), also to satellite launchers such as SpaceX, and Boeing and Lockheed’s United Launch Alliance.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

I have been pleasantly surprised with the stock market. Incredible does not seem like strong enough of a word to describe the nearly decade-long bull market we’re in. 

Despite the roaring market, stocks never go up in a straight line. There are always pullbacks and sometimes severe plunges, even when everything looking super bullish. In fact, the worst plunges occur when investors are complacent and not expecting a selloff.

Today is a special day for Apple shareholders, and a celebration of capitalism. The world&s;s first trillion dollar company.

Of course, it is just a number. What&s;s so important about crossing&a;nbsp;a threshold from $999,999,999 to $1 trillion, anyway? Several things make it important.

Most obvious – it&s;s a first.&a;nbsp;How fitting that a company so dedicated to being first; that is&a;mdash;to being innovative,&a;nbsp;is the first to eclipse&a;nbsp;the trillion dollar mark.

The&a;nbsp;second&a;nbsp;reason is because&a;nbsp;we derive meaning from numbers. Not just the numbers themselves, but from how we associate them to time. Whether it&s;s birthdays, calendar years, or even market capitalization, numbers provide context. Goal posts, if you will.&a;nbsp;Chapter markers, in&a;nbsp;the evolving story of life.

10 Top Penny Stocks to Watch This Week

Last week’s best-performing penny stock was Cartesian Inc. (OTCMKTS: CRTN), a management consulting company that locked in an explosive gain of over 170%. That shows there’s still money to be made in stocks even as the market lost $768 billion last week, which is why we’re bringing you top penny stock to watch this week.

Last Wednesday (March 21), Cartesian stock rocketed a staggering 123% in the last two hours of trading. While the company said it has issued no new information that would have caused its share price to sharply rise, Cartesian is set to announce its earnings on Tuesday (March 27), a sign traders might be optimistic about earnings.

While Cartesian started the week at $0.15 and closed at $0.38, providing a total gain of 170%, that sort of unpredictability in penny stocks shows why it’s important for investors to have a leg up on their competition.

After looking at this week’s penny stock gainers, we’ll give you that leg up with one of our top-rated penny stocks from our proprietary stock ranking system…

While these penny stocks provided shareholders with spectacular gains last weekend, they also illustrated the dangers involved with investing in penny stocks.

You see, if a penny stock like Cartesian Inc. can jump 170% in a few hours, it can fall to $0.00 in the same amount of time.

The risk of these kinds of losses is why we follow five rules for investing in penny stocks – take a look at our rules for investing in penny stocks on the right.

Rules for Safely Trading Penny Stocks
No more than 2% of your overall stock portfolio should consist of penny stocks.
Avoid stocks with average daily trading volume of less than 500,000 shares.
Avoid penny stocks being aggressively promoted on public discussion forums or websites not focused on investing.

Here are the top three warning signs of a shell company scam, according to the SEC and FINRA…

If a company has been dormant for many years and then brought back to life.
If a company has changed its name and, especially, business focus multiple times.
Check for massive reverse stock splits like 1-for-20,000 or 1-for-50,000.

With last week’s gains already on the books, we’re looking at the top penny stock to buy for future profit.

Determining which penny stocks will help investors limit the risk of losing their investment can be difficult. That’s why our team uses the Money Morning Stock VQScore.

Developed from our proprietary valuation system, the VQScore identifies undervalued stocks with the highest profit potential by using a blended analysis of a company’s earnings potential, growth rate, earnings-per-share acceleration, and market volume.

The VQScore system runs on a scale of 1 to 4, with 4 indicating a stock with strong earnings and growth potential.

Our top penny stock for this week has a perfect VQScore of 4 – and for good reason.

The company’s return on equity (ROE) – the amount of profit a company can provide in earnings over the amount of equity they’ve raised – is over 400% higher than its industry’s average.

Here’s our top penny stock for this week and how you can profit…

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2018

MannKind (MNKD) investors saw Afrezza script sales close out November with an expected recovery from the week prior which was a holiday week. For the week ending December 1st, total Afrezza sales were just over 470 scripts. This number is at the high end of my script projection model. Afrezza sales have spent the bulk of Q4 in the 400 to 500 range vs. the 300 to 400 range that was seen in Q3. Sales are growing in line with my projections, but well below what is needed to impress the street.

Chart Source – Spencer Osborne

The quarter-over-quarter numbers in terms of scripts are showing a Q4 improvement of 19.02% increase over Q3. This is growth, but slower growth than needed. The silver lining is that with new SKUs, each script contains more cartridges and thus more dollars. This dynamic creates a bump in the revenue line. That bump is nice to see, but will not continue to outpace the script growth percentage for very long. Once the channel is filled with the new SKUs, the revenue percentage gains will more closely mirror the percentages we see in scripts. In other words, the average revenue per script will level off in the weeks ahead.

    This Bloomberg reportis just one of the many recent reports which suggest that advertisers could take their ad Dollars elsewhere, or bargain hard to bring down ad prices on Facebook. With advertisers growing more wary of Facebook, it won’t come as a surprise ifAlphabet Inc’s (NSDQ:GOOGL)Google, with its massive reach and scale, emerges as a natural alternative for advertisers.However, a deeper look suggests that even Google might not have as much of a squeaky clean image as many believe it does. Quoting from the same Bloomberg post:

    Apple stock is currently trading at a PE multiple of 14.09, in line with the valuation multiples of other hardware companies like HP Inc (NYSE:HPQ) and Qualcomm (NSDQ:QCOM). However, the Apple services segment is significantly different from a ‘hardware’ business, whether in terms of operations or associated cost structure. It would, therefore, be more accurate to evaluate the segment as a services business in order to gauge its ‘value.’ Two popular companies which generate a ton of services revenue are Alphabet (NSDQ:GOOGL) and Facebook (NSDQ:FB).

    Recently, both suppliers of graphics processing units (GPUs) NVIDIA Corporation (NSDQ:NVDA)and Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NSDQ:AMD)have signed new collaborations with leading cloud companies to supply their GPUs to accelerate artificial intelligence in the enterprise. NVIDIA has announced a collaboration with tech giants Microsoft Corporation (NSDQ:MSFT)and International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), while AMD received orders from Alphabet (NSDQ:GOOGL)to supply GPUs for Google cloud platform. Investors might wonder which one of the two companies NVIDIA or AMD is going to win the GPU race to become the primary supplier for artificial intelligence uses. While right now Nvidia dominates the GPU application in AI, in my opinion, there is enough room for both companies to grow in this marker significantly. Therefore, as I see it, to take advantage of the fast-growing deep learning and artificial intelligence market, it is better to invest in shares of both companies.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2018: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    After a series of setbacks in its attempts to build new oil pipelines, Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) completed a transformation transaction to acquire U.S. natural gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group for $13 billion, which includes the assumption of debt. The key to that deal was that it increased the combined company’s near-term project pipeline to 23 billion Canadian dollars, which supports TransCanada’s ability to increase its dividend by 8% to 10% annually through 2020. After completing that deal, TransCanada made a bid to acquire all of the outstanding units that it did not own of affiliated MLP Columbia Pipeline Partners (NYSE:CPPL) in a transaction valued at $915 million. These acquisitions solidified TransCanada’s natural gas pipeline growth ambitions, enabling it to diversify away from oil pipelines.

    That includes pipeline companies like Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI), which already operates a pipeline transporting natural gas from Texas into Mexico, and master limited partnerships (MLPs) Energy Transfer Partners L.P. (NYSE: ETP) and TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP), the company that has (so far) failed to get U.S. approval for its Keystone Pipeline expansion from Canada’s oil sands across the U.S. border.

    Energy stocks were driven by a hefty dose of M&A during the third quarter. And that will drive returns for TransCanada Corporation (TRP) during the next one.

    In a number of articles recently, following the US recent revival and potential approval of the previously blocked Keystone XL pipeline, a number of estimates have been provided suggesting a pending boom for the US steel industry is on the horizon (and US steel stocks have reacted in kind). In fact, this optimism, we believe, peaked today when a report from one of our competitors was published claiming that, the keystone XL pipeline could increase line pipe demand by 14.7% for 2 years. The problem here, we believe, rests with the facts that: (a) TransCanada (TRP) has already taken, and paid for, the steel to build the Keystone XL pipeline (the steel currently sits in storage facilities in both Regina, Canada and Arkansas, United States), (b) neither US Steel (X; SELL), AK Steel, Steel Dynamics, or Nucor have the ability to make the specialized steel required for the miles of pipe associated with this project, to include both the thickness and pressure requirements, according to this article from Reuters, and (c) assuming some of the pipe does need replacement, this would likely come from international steel makers who are capable of producing the specialized steel (again, as highlighted in this Reuters article).
