Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

Given the extremely low valuation of Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) stock, if value investing legend Benjamin Graham was alive today, he would be buying MU stock by the boatload.

Trading at 3.7 times its trailing adjusted earnings per share, Micron stock is the third-cheapest S&P 500 company by this valuation metric and it has the lowest forward price-earnings ratio in the S&P 500.

Four months ago, MU stock was trading around $65, over 40% higher than its current price. Its cash return [defined as free cash flow plus net interest expense divided by enterprise value] is 15.5%. By comparison, Amazon.com’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) cash return, according to Morningstar, is 1.0%.

I’m not suggesting that MU is in the same league as Jeff Bezos and company, but it would be difficult to picture a situation that is better suited for a company to buy back its own shares, even though its business conditions.are deteriorating

Warren Buffett Loves Buybacks

“Many management (teams) are just deciding they’re gonna buy X billions (in stock) over X months. That’s no way to buy things. You buy (things) when (they’re) selling for less than they are worth,” Buffett told CNBC in 2015. “It’s not a complicated equation to figure out whether it is beneficial or not to repurchase shares,” he added.

    Today will feature a light day of earnings reports, but things will heat up later this week for traditional retail stocks. We’ll be looking for stronger earnings thanks to improved consumer confidence and spending. Retail firms reporting earnings include Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT), Kohl’s Corp. (NYSE: KSS), Ross Stores Inc. (Nasdaq: ROST), Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS), Foot Locker Inc. (NYSE: FL), and TJX Co. Inc. (NYSE: TJX). PepsiCo Inc.

Pepsi appears to be getting out ahead of the growing trend of consumers purchasing groceries online instead of at traditional retail locations. Shares of PEP added 0.4% before the opening bell. Football season is now just three weeks away from kicking off. And America’s top spectator sport is trying to resurrect itself from an ongoing public relations battle over the National Anthem.

    Investing in retirement is vastly different from investing during your primary working years.

Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (NYSEMKT:BND), Vanguard Utilities ETF (NYSEMKT:VPU), and SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (NYSEMKT:SDY) are three exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, that will help you invest the right way after you retire.

Market participants seemed largely content to see how things played out on the geopolitical front between the U.S. and North Korea, and key reversals in other financial markets helped send 10-year Treasury rates back below 3% and also resulted in a substantial drop in crude oil prices. Despite generally quiet conditions, bad news sent shares of certain companies lower. Accuray (NASDAQ:ARAY), Cincinnati Bell (NYSE:CBB), and Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    While not every growth fund manager is worth following there are several that I greatly respect and can be a wonderful source of stock ideas. Here are a few of my favorite growth investors to follow:

    Pat Dorsey of Dorsey Asset Management: Dorsey was the director of equity research at Morningstar for more than a decade an authored two must-read books for growth investors: The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing and The Little Book that Builds Wealth. Dorsey now runs his own asset management business and he makes concentrated bets in growth stocks that he believes will be able to compound shareholder wealth for years. Chuck Akre of Akre Capital Management: Akre ran the FBR Focus Fund from 1997 to 2009 and produced annualized returns of more than 12% during his tenure, which was far ahead of the 4.4% return of the S&P 500 over the same time frame. Akre launched his own mutual funds in 2009. His style is to buy growth stocks that are trading for value prices and he rarely sells. He also runs a concentrated portfolio. Carl Icahn of Icahn Capital Management: Long-term investors in Icahn’s publicly traded investment vehicle Icahn Enterprises (NASDAQ:IEP) has enjoyed market-beating returns. Icahn’s net worth has ballooned to more than $18 billion because of his knack for finding mispriced stocks. In recent years, he has become an activist investor who buys a meaningful position in a company and then shakes up its Board of Directors and management team in an effort to improve the business. While his fast-paced style isn’t for everybody, I always enjoy looking at his portfolio to see what he has been buying or selling recently.

    There are also a plethora of websites out there that make easy to track and rank what notable growth investors are doing, including Whale Wisdom, TipRanks, and Guru Focus. Growth investors can visit any of these sites and quickly learn what many big-time money managers have been buying and selling in recent months to come up

    Meanwhile, the United States will continue to meet with China to discuss ways to accelerate a deal between the two nations on trade. U.S. Commerce head Wilbur Ross will be visiting the nation next month to lead the next round of talks. Last weekend, the two nations agreed in principle to avoid a trade war. Here’s the thing… the U.S. government doesn’t want you to know the full story of what is happening. Here’s a look at the backroom details…. U.S. crude oil prices slumped below $70 per barrel Friday thanks to reports out of Russia on its plans to hike production. Russia says it may increase production as part of a plan to ease portions of its deal with OPEC to cap excessive global output. Oil traders have long suspected that Russia would be one of the first countries to turn away from the ongoing deal with Saudi Arabia and the rest of the global oil cartel as soon as prices and inventory levels stabilized. This could be a blow to predictions among OPEC nations, as well as some traders who were hoping that oil could push back toward $100 per barrel.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

The world’s greenhouse gas problem is caused by huge manufacturing plants that belch pollution into the air, too many gasoline-powered cars and agricultural activity, among other things. If regulations can throttle these activities, the rise in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere might stabilize, or even drop.

There is a new culprit in the greenhouse gas wars. Bitcoin and other blockchain activities use enough energy that they are a threat to lowering energy consumption.

According to a research paper titled “Decarbonizing Bitcoin: Law and policy choices for reducing the energy consumption of Blockchain technologies and digital currencies”:

The vast transactional, trust and security advantages of Bitcoin are dwarfed by the intentionally resource-intensive design in its transaction verification process which now threatens the climate we depend upon for survival. Indeed Bitcoin mining and transactions are an application of Blockchain technology employing an inefficient use of scarce energy resources for a financial activity at a point in human development where world governments are scrambling to reduce energy consumption through their Paris Agreement climate change commitments and beyond to mitigate future climate change implications.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Apple Inc.(AAPL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Mac Greer]

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) reported on its fiscal fourth quarter on Wednesday, and while revenue and operating profits were down, it did beat its outlook. Unsurprisingly, CEO Tim Cook pointed to China’s economic slowdown and Washington’s trade war as the causes of lower iPhone sales, but on the earnings call, he also talked through a bigger-picture evolutionary story that could generate some optimism about the company and the stock. Elsewhere in the investing world, satellite radio monopoly Sirius XM (NASDAQ:SIRI) reported a quarter of record revenue — but that company, too, is more focused on what’s ahead.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is very obviously working on some type of video-streaming service, buying up content across genres hand over fist over the past year. CEO Tim Cook even acknowledged the service directly for the first time in August during the Mac maker’s fiscal third-quarter earnings call. Meanwhile, most investors and analysts have expected Apple to take the most straightforward approach to monetization by offering the service for $10 to $15 per month, the market price for over-the-top (OTT) streaming services.

Hot Stocks To Buy For 2019

Amazon, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) has made an incredible run in 2017 so far — and many are chasing it still higher. But at some point you have to wonder how high is too high? The stock has climbed about 50% year to date, including 18.5% in this quarter, but it has been slowing down recently.

Instinet recently made a call on Amazon, raising its price target to a Street-high $1,360, implying an upside of roughly 20% from the current level.

Most of this call is based on the firm’s belief that Amazon can perpetually grow SG&A as a dependent on gross rate expansion. Considering product costs are unlikely to ease, a mix shift to higher margin segments could drive gross margin expansion.

Accordingly, Instinet believes that mix shift alone could drive about 1,000 basis points of long-term gross margin lift, thus enabling a $160 billion investment into deepening Amazon’s moat.

Here’s what other analysts are saying about Amazon:

    Social media and tech stocks remain front and center as Facebook (FB) CEO Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees this afternoon.

  • [By ]

    Facebook Inc. (FB) continues to open up the spending spigots, and investors don’t seem to mind.

    Shares have been soaring after the social network soundly beat earnings and revenue expectations after the close on Wednesday. Capital expenditures in the first quarter amounted to $2.8 billion and full year expenses in 2018 are estimated to be around $15 billion, CFO David Wehner said during the earnings call Wednesday.

    As earnings season continues, a host of big tech companies are about to report earnings, including Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft, and Apple. But Facebook will be one of the most interesting earnings reports to watch. Not only is it among the most valuable companies in the world, but it’s growing at an extraordinary pace. In Facebook’s fourth quarter, revenue and earnings per share jumped 47% and 83% year over year when adjusted to exclude the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

    The social-networking leader experienced the largest stock gain among the top 10 this past week, soaring 11.2% after the company came through with a better-than-expected quarter. Beating revenue and profit goals is certainly healthy news, but the real gem is that active user numbers are growing sequentially again. Facebook’s daily and monthly active users increased 9% on a year-over-year basis, and there was also improvement from the third quarter’s showing. Other successes included topping 500 million daily active users for Instagram Stories and more than 90 million small businesses using its products.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Open Text Corporation(OTEX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Box was an early mover in the content and file management space in enterprise markets. In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,  Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.
