Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

Following past boom/bust cycles, the oil business appears to have bottomed in February 2016 at $27 a barrel. The bruising multi-year bust in crude oil prices was the biggest reason for the world stock market sell-off from late 2015 to early 2016 of roughly 15% overall. The cruel irony of ultra-low prices is its disruptive effect on regular exploration activity. A short-term oil market depression in expectations disproportionately slashes oil drilling activity. Oil exploration budgets for 2017 are down 65% from 2014 and the smallest in 12 years, DESPITE a record estimate for global demand next year. In the long-run, oil & gas development and production may fail to keep pace with the steady growth in total demand. Will the 2015-16 “bust” sow the seeds of the next “boom” phase in pricing?

    Tuesday was a calm day on Wall Street, with several major benchmarks posting modest gains while others stayed closer to the unchanged mark. Market participants generally seemed ready to take a pause in trends over the past several days, as crude oil prices bounced back from their recent drop to climb above $65 per barrel while interest rates eased slightly lower. Yet despite a resilient market that largely avoided most downward pressure, some individual stocks weren’t as lucky. Carnival (NYSE:CCL) (NYSE:CUK), Tarena International (NASDAQ:TEDU), and Genesco (NYSE:GCO) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

Gold doesn't trade in a vacuum.   Markets are connected. What happens in one often affects others.   So if you want to understand what's happening with gold, you need to know what's going on in the markets that affect gold.   And while lots of traders focus only on the short term, it's important to have a big-picture view, too. The big picture shows you the long-term trends at work… and when they change. It can help you find low-risk opportunities to open new positions. And it can help you determine where to set your stops.   Today, we'll look at the big picture for two markets that affect gold… along with gold itself.   Let's get started…   The first market we'll look at is U.S. government bonds… specifically, the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasurys. The U.S. government is considered the world's safest borrower. (It can print money to pay lenders back, after all.) The rate it pays to borrow money for 10 years serves as the world's benchmark interest rate.

The person who owns the stock on the ex-dividend date will be awarded the payment, which means that you’ll have to wait for the next dividend cycle to receive your first dividend payout from the company.

Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2018: Star Bulk Carriers Corp.(SBLK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Star Bulk Carriers (SBLK) provides worldwide transportation of drybulk commodities through its vessel-owning subsidiaries for a range of customers and minor bulk cargoes including iron ore, coal, grain, cement and fertilizer. This stock closed up 7.9% at $10.58 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 243,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 64,367

    Volume % Change: 228%

    From a technical perspective, SBLK jumped sharply higher here right above some near-term support at $9.47 with above-average volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last two months and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $5.37 to its recent high of $11.53. During that move, shares of SBLK have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of SBLK within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if SBLK manages to take out its 52-week high at $11.53 and then once it clears some past resistance at $11.98 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SBLK as long as it’s trending above near-term support at $9.47 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 64,367 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SBLK will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are its next major overhead resistance levels at $14 to $15.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    StarBulk Carriers (SBLK) and Safe Bulkers (SB) have more than tripled during the past 12 months, while Golden Ocean Group (GOGL) has more than doubled. So it must be time for an upgrade right?

    That’s exactly what Morgan Stanley did last night, when they upgraded StarBulk Carriers, Safe Bulkers, and Golden Ocean Group to Overweight from Equal Weight, while lifting arguing that the “recovery is still not priced in.” They explain:

    These companies have young fleets, mostly larger vessels, low cost structures, high operational and financial leverage to repricing in the dry bulk segment, and ability to start paying dividends in YE2018. Dry bulk stocks have nearly doubled YoY, but are still cheap in historical terms, in our view. The group trades at the historical 100-110% EV/Fleet Value, discounting no further increases in vessel values that are still ~50% below the long-term historical averages, significantly lagging the recent move in charter rates. We still see significant upside as charter rates increase, vessel values normalize, and capital returns to the industry as the group’s overall market cap increases.

    Shares of StarBulk Carriers have climbed 16% to $11.72 at 3:50 p.m. today, while Safe Bulkers has jumped 13% to $2.13, and Golden Ocean Group has gained 9.6% to $8.13.

    Too bad I recommended buying Golar LNG (GLNG) and avoiding the dry-bulk shippers back in November.

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When most investors think of potential competitive threats to drybulk shippers like Star Bulk Carriers Corp. (NASDAQ:SBLK) or Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ:ESEA), Double Crown Resources Inc (OTCMKTS:DDCC) doesn’t come to mind. Indeed, DDCC doesn’t come to mind for many investors at all, as for all intents and purposes the company it is today didn’t exist until a few months ago. Age, however, has nothing to do with how disruptive it could prove to be for the likes of Euroseas or Star Bulk Carriers. Its underlying idea is brilliant, and it’s only a matter of time before it catches on within the commodity-transportation community.

    What if there was a way to remove all the risks and hassle of shipping things like pellets or beans or salt – normally delivered in drybulk vessels – but still utilize all the flexibility of intermodal containers (the big 20-foot boxes that fit on a truck and a train and on top of the deck of a boat)? There is. It’s called Translock2 (Translock Squared). It was designed by Double Crown Resources, and it’s going to revolutionize the way many material companies deliver their goods.

    The nearby image is a Translock2 container. It should look familiar – it’s essentially an intermodal container in terms of size and shape, but mechanically is a delivery and dispensing platform for drybulk goods. The design allows commodities like sand or livestock feed to be moved with all the flexibility of intermodal transportation, but without any of the headache of aggregating and splitting up those goods to get them properly shipped to their final destination. With Translock2, drybulk purchases are packaged up by the seller at the supply source, and then delivered — just as ordered — all the way to the buyer’s site in the container. No material is lost en route, and no distributor or middleman needs to bother splitting up one large order into smaller ones.

    Its development is worth noting, as it explicitly circumvents the need for drybulk ves

IT export is a market that is expected to grow massively in the coming years and this Top Pick is an opportunity for growth minded investors to benefit at a bargain price, explains Matthew Castel, money manager and editor of Logos LP Blog.

Syntel (SYNT) is a U.S.-based supplier of IT outsourcing for banking and insurance, healthcare, retail and manufacturing Global 2000 companies with a market cap of $1.63 billion.

The reason we are presented with such an excellent long-term opportunity is the fact that, in the latest quarter, earnings fell off a cliff.

This was due to increased overhead in a addition to a onetime tax of approx. $271 million net off foreign tax credits upon the repatriation of $1.24 billion of cash held by Syntel’s foreign subsidiaries.

The company is also dealing with several growth challenges extending deal cycles including: soft global macroeconomic trends, industry specific headwinds and regulatory related uncertainty in key end markets.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Golar LNG Partners LP (GMLP), a limited partnership, owns and operates floating storage and regasification units and LNG carriers under long-term charters. This stock closed up 3.5% at $32.74 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 432,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 81,559

    Volume % Change: 283%

    From a technical perspective, GMLP bounced notably higher here right off its 200-day moving average of $31.79 and back above its 50-day moving average of $32.56 with strong upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of GMLP within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if GMLP manages to take out Monday’s intraday high at $32.96 to some more near-term overhead resistance at $33.15 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GMLP as long as it’s trending above its 200-day at $31.79 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that’s near or above 81,559 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then GMLP will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $34.78 to its 52-week high at $36.
