Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

Retirement investors want sure things. There isn’t enough time to make up for stocks that just fall into the ground, never to return. So considering how awful energy has been for the past couple of years, it’s probably surprising to see “energy stocks” and “retirement” mentioned in the same vicinity.

Sustained low oil and natural gas prices have negatively impacted energy stocks. OK, that’s putting it mildly. Low prices have outright strangled some companies right out of business, and has made life miserable for the vast majority of the sector.

And considering many retirement investors were sucked in by the plentiful dividends in the energy sector, they know the pain. And they’re probably not too forgiving.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019: Foot Locker, Inc.(FL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    With retail earnings season pretty much over, one key takeaway is how many so-called “brick-and-mortar” stores have found ways to keep customers coming in the doors rather than simply pointing and clicking. Many retailers had very good same-store sales, and what that shows is the traffic is still there for them. The challenge for retailers now is converting traffic to buyers, and retailers appear to have gotten much more creative and much better at helping their clients. About 70 percent of specialty retailers—which are smaller, niche-type stores—beat Wall Street’s forecasts for the quarter, according to Bloomberg research, and the S&P 500 Specialty Retail Index has actually outperformed the S&P 500 Internet Index since mid-March. Strong results reported by specialty retailers like Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE: FL) and Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) last week have helped buttress the sector.

    Cirrus announced that the first product containing its new ANC chip last spring. In the most recent conference call, the company mentioned that it was in a new headset with a major OEM. A search looking for design breakdowns for Cirrus revealed two new products with Cirrus ANC inside. ABI Research reported finding the Cirrus ANC chip, 47L50C, inside replacing a chip from “Maxim MAX98730” The rest of the parts in the Studio 3 were the same as its predecessor Solo3. Beats increased the price on the Studio 3 by $50. ABI also found the 47L50C inside one of the new Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) products adding this statement, “Cirrus seems to be doing quite well in the ANC (Active noise cancellation) market as this is the second win we have seen (47L51b found in the Samsung ANC earbuds) in blooming ANC market.” There appear to be two new sets of earbuds from Samsung, a wired and a wireless. It is unclear to us which or perhaps both could have the new Cirrus chip inside. We know of at least three major brands with Cirrus ANC inside. The list continues to grow. We note we have yet to find a product with both parts, mics and codec.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now: Sigma Designs, Inc.(SIGM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.
