Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

Nearly every traditional valuation measure says the S&P 500 is currently expensive.

Which means if you’re a value investor trying to make money in today’s market, you’ll need to try harder.

To do that, you need to start looking in areas where most of the investment world isn’t.

Here’s my idea…

Howard Hughes Corporation Underfollowed and Undervalued

Howard Hughes (HHC) has a unique business model for a publicly traded company.

This company isn’t a REIT.This company isn’t a homebuilder.And this company isn’t a land developer.

Instead it’s all three of these things.

And as a result, it doesn’t fit into any of Wall Street’s existing boxes.

You see, Wall Street has analysts assigned to each individual sector but no analysts assigned to cover all three. Which means that there are currently only a handful of analysts covering HHC.

Which today offers an extremely compelling value proposition…

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019: (LVMUY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Two years ago, I discussed LVMH (OTCPK:LVMUY) (OTCPK:LVMHF) in another article here on Seeking Alpha. Although I wasnt too impressed with the companys free cash flow yield, I did agree this company deserved a premium valuation. And on top of that, I was expecting its strong growth results to continue in the years ahead. Were now two years later, and LVMH has delivered on every front. Unfortunately the market caught up on that as well, and LVMHs share price has doubled in just two years. And although the LVMH results justify a good performance of the share price, I do think LVMH is getting a little pricey.

LVMH (NASDAQOTH:LVMUY), which owns Tiffany’s rival(and Bogliolo’s former employer) Bulgari, trades at just 25 times this year’s earnings — and analysts expect its EPS to jump 16%. Bulgari, like Tiffany, is pivoting away fromits “old world” charms toward edgier marketing campaigns that target younger shoppers.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019

Investors can add all sorts of investments to an IRA, but many financial advisors will suggest sticking with conservative dividend stocks. The reason is simple — blue chip income generators generally bounce back from big market crashes, and the compounding effect of reinvested dividends can deliver massive returns over several decades.

At first glance, tobacco giant Altria (NYSE:MO) seems like a great stock for an IRA. Its flagship Marlboro brand dominates the U.S. market, it pays a hefty forward dividend yield of 3.4%, and it’s hiked that dividend every year since it spun off itsoverseas business as Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM) in 2008. But if you gaze further into Altria’s future, you’ll realize that it’s not a great long-term pick for your IRA at all.

Why Altria seems like a good IRA stock

Altria shares have rallied 20% over the past 12 months, outperforming Philip Morris’ 15% rally but slightly underperforming the S&P 500’s 25% gain. Much of that growth can be attributed to two factors — a flight to high-yielding dividend stocks in a low interest rate environment and Altria’s purely domestic business insulating it from the currency headwinds which gobbled up Philip Morris’ overseas gains.

    Crude prices in the U.S. continued their ascent today, rising nearly 3% to about $72.50 a barrel — the highest level since late 2014 — after the U.S. government reported a massive drawdown of oil storage levels. This news sent most oil stocks soaring, including Sanchez Energy (NYSE:SN) — up 12% at one point — and Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO), which rallied nearly 6% by the mid-afternoon and was one of the biggest gainers in the S&P 500.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

The world’s largest automaker is putting big money into electric vehicles in China.

Volkswagen (VLKAF) and its local partners plan to invest more than 10 billion ($11.8 billion) to build electric and hybrid cars in the country — the world’s biggest auto market — over the next seven to eight years.

More electric vehicles are sold in China than anywhere else on the planet — and the national government is pushing companies to design and build them on Chinese territory.

Under the plan announced Thursday, VW and its partners are aiming to develop and produce as many as 40 new electric and hybrid vehicle models in China between now and 2025. It expects the first of the new models to hit the Chinese market next year.

VW’s top China exec, Jochem Heizmann, said the German company is “determined to be at the forefront” of China’s electric vehicle revolution.

China accounts for about 50% of the global market for clean energy vehicles, according to investment firm East Capital. Chinese officials said two months ago that they were working on a plan to eventually phase out the production and sale of vehicles powered solely by fossil fuels.

U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: Marvell Technology Group Ltd.(MRVL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Marvell Technology (MRVL) and Cavium (CAVM) both posted large gains on Monday, as investors wagered Marvell’s $6 billion deal to buy Cavium is now less likely to be blocked by Beijing. Broadcom (AVGO) , which has bought plenty of chipmakers over the last few years and has indicated it’s open to making smaller deals after seeing the Trump Administration shoot down its hostile bid for Qualcomm, also has to be pleased at the possibility that Beijing won’t act as a deterrent to chip industry dealmaking going forward.

    Chipmakers Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) and Marvell Technology Group (NASDAQ:MRVL) have been riding high on growing memory demand. Both companies have outpaced the NASDAQ-100 Technology Sector index quite comfortably over the past year as the increase in demand for DRAM (dynamic random access memory), flash memory, and hard-disk drives (HDD) has rubbed off positively on their businesses.

Last year, one of the more notable announced deals was Marvell’s (NASDAQ:MRVL) planned acquisition of specialty data-center chip maker Cavium Networks (NASDAQ:CAVM) in a combination cash and stock deal that valued Cavium at $6 billion.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Pilgrim's Pride Corporation(PPC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Udovich]

    Thanksgiving is almost here but the exit of both Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NYSE: PPC) and Smithfield Foods (NYSE: SFD) to focus on their chicken or pork businesses (the latter was also acquired by the Chinese) leaves just two big Thanksgiving turkey stocks, Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) and Seaboard Corporation (NYSEAMEX: SEB), for investors to consider. According to the American Far Bureau, a 16-pound turkey will (on average) come in at a total of $22.74 this year or roughly $1.42 per pound for a decrease of 2 cents per pound or a total of 30 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2015. The price drop may be a transition back to the norm as the significant bird flu outbreak last year hurt the nations supply of both turkey and eggs.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation(SWHC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Smith & Wesson’s (SWHC) stock has been under pressure ever since Donald Trump’s election victory–it appears that the perceived threat to take away guns did wonders for the gun manufacturer’s sales. Now, Smith & Wesson might also have to deal with competitive pressures that could “challenge” its market share, says Wunderlich’s Rommel Dionisio:

    Getty Images

    Given the upcoming mid-January Shot Show, the firearms industrys most important annual trade show, several prominent competitors have already begun to unveil new products for 2017. The flurry of major new product introductions from leading players in the field into the two fastest growing categories of firearms, modern sporting rifles (MSRs) and compact/concealed carry handguns, appear meaningfully more competitive than usual, which could challenge Smith & Wessons (SWHC) market share, which had been rising impressively the past several years. Industry sales are also likely to slow, following unusually high growth in 2016. We maintain our price target of $26, derived using an EV/2016E EBITDA multiple of 6.0x.

    Shares of Smith & Wesson have dropped 1.5% to $21.78 at 12:07 p.m. today.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd.(TSM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    For many years, NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) has relied on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) to manufacture the graphics chips it designs. Today, most of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture-based graphics processors — from the GeForce GTX 1060, designed for mainstream PC gamers, all the way through its cutting edge Tesla P100 datacenter accelerators — are manufactured by TSMC.

    To illustrate my point, Intel’s chief competitor, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), has said that its 7-nanometer technology, which should go into mass production in the first half of 2018, delivers a roughly 1.63-fold density improvement over its 10-nanometer technology.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    Contract-chip manufacturing giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) recently announced its earnings results, provided forward guidance for the current quarter, and provided a lot of insight on the ramp-up of its next-generation chip-manufacturing technology, called 10-nanometers (10nm for short).

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    As part of this discussion, he took the time to explain how the technology that Intel calls 14 nanometers is more like what its competitors — Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.(NYSE:TSM) — call 10 nanometers (smaller is generally believed to be better).

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: BlackBerry Limited(BBRY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Piyush Arora]

    The point that Im trying to make is that BlackBerry is facing an acute shortage of apps, and the fixes available to mitigate the issue, are getting outdated and might not necessarily work in 2017. The company needs to do something about its BB10 OS, otherwise, its remaining base of loyal users might abandon the platform as well. (See Also: BlackBerry Stock: BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) Might Gain From The Tesla Motors Inc Hack)

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    BlackBerry’s (NSDQ:BBRY)turnaround has been moving at snail’s pace. In that context, BlackBerry’s deal with Ford (NYSE:F) to expand usage of its QNX software in the latter’s line of connected cars was welcome news. Many see BBRY’s focus on automotive technology as a potential profit center. Norwegian security firm, Promon, recently gave a demonstration of howTesla (NSDQ:TSLA) cars can be stolen by hackers through the company’s official android application, which many car owners use to interact with their vehicles. This was one of the latest unflattering events to take place for Tesla. But this very news can be good for Blackberry. Here’s why.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ: BBRY) reported an unexpected profit for the first quarter. However, sales trailed expectations. The company also announced a stock buyback program.

  • [By Jack Foley]

    BlackBerry(NSDQ:BBRY)stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).

The final award which will include interest rates and legal fees will be decided on May 31st. The windfall gain has earned BBRY stock price target upgrades from several analysts. The arbitration relates to an overpayment of royalty by BlackBerry Ltd between 2010 and 2015. The question now is, does this one-time award change anything for BlackBerry Ltd stock?

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    Shares of San Diego, California-based QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM)plunged further, losing more than 3.5% in yesterday’s trade. QCOM stock is now near its lowest levels since the post-earnings sell off. QCOM stock dipped on account of the smartphone chipmaker losing an arbitration case against BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY). Qualcomm was ordered to refund a sum of nearly $815M to the software company. This comes on the back of the San Diego company’s latest countersuit againstApple (NASDAQ:AAPL). QCOM stock had already been battered this year on account of its mounting legal troubles. With Qualcomm stock trading at such low levels, investors could be puzzled about whether they should buy this dip in QCOM stock.Is QCOM stock headed much lower? Will Qualcomm stock rebound ahead of its earnings? Let’s take a closer look.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Canon, Inc.(CAJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Carroll]

    Nikon’s story is similar to what’s plaguing its Japanese rival, Canon (NYSE: CAJ  ) . Canon’s stock has nosedived by 20% year to date, but the stock’s recovered nearly 3% over the past month. Don’t let appearances fool you: The company slashed its full-year sales and profit forecasts back in July, as the worldwide camera market has slumped, and as smartphones continue to take over this aging niche. Canon’s route back to respectability looks like a treacherous climb.
