Top Safest Stocks To Buy For 2022

One day many years ago, I found myself stuck in traffic and noticed a peculiar sign. It said something about the construction that was going on — the very thing that was hampering my commute.

It said all this construction was being funded by a bond. This was before I had ever started my career in finance, so bonds were an unfamiliar thing. But when I began my investment career, I soon realized that I could actually invest in these things. And the more I learned, the more I was ecstatic.

After all, If you can’t beat ’em, might as well make money off them…

You see, these types of bonds have a name — general obligation bonds — a type of municipal, or “muni” bond for short. These bonds are used for everything from helping fund road construction to building schools, bridges, water infrastructure and other public buildings. As I became more familiar with municipal bonds, I quickly became a fan. In fact, in my experience, muni-bonds are one of the safest ways for investors to earn income in today’s market — while also beating the tax man. (More on that in a moment.)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    One disadvantage for Southwest Airlines is that customers have to bring their own food along. Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) still offers complimentary meals for customers in coach, and other airlines have buy-onboard options. By contrast, Southwest’s planes have small galleys, so the carrier will only offer a “snack bag” on its Hawaii flights. Many travelers may want at least the option of a hot meal for what can be a six-hour flight.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Ambarella, Inc.(AMBA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    One of the few companies reporting this week is Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA). The provider of video chip solutions was a market darling when wearable action cameras were all the rage, but the stock has shed more than half its value since peaking three summers ago. 

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    It seems that anything these days with the words “autonomous driving” attached to it carries some level of controversy. Video chipmaker Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) is no exception. But the thing is, the company isn’t really in that industry — at least not yet. Shares were hammered after the company reported on its first quarter, which ended April 30, because of further declines in its action camera (read GoPro) and drones business. So developing new chips for the future of transportation can’t come soon enough for Ambarella.

Mostly positive second-quarter earnings were overshadowed by warnings of a stronger dollar and weaker profits for U.S. companies with international exposure.

From Netflix to Illinois Tool Works, management was downbeat as weaker foreign currencies meant lower sales in those markets when converted back to dollars.

One fortunate side effect of all this is that shares of foreign companies have become cheaper in dollar terms. When a company’s shares are primarily priced in another currency and that base weakens then it’s going to act as an artificial weight on the price of the American Depository Receipts (ADRs).

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

One of the favorite pastimes of market watchers is predicting the next seismic shift in investor preference. The latest trendy forecast goes something like this: We’ve had a major pivot from the digital darling FAANG stocks to the rejuvenated “Blue Chips” of 2018. However, finding evidence of this type of leadership swap in history is far from obvious.

The FAANG terminology, while catchy, is too narrow for this particular exercise. The Nasdaq Composite index, in which these five stocks represent 26 percent, and technology or internet names account for roughly 60 percent of the market value, has been the strongest of the major US indices over the past several years.

For the purpose of this exercise, the Dow Jones Industrial average, with its broad diversity across major industry sectors, including such names as Caterpillar, Walmart, Boeing, United Technologies, Pfizer, Disney, and Nike, is a proxy for the Blue Chips.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    ANSYS (NASDAQ:ANSS) was downgraded by equities researchers at BidaskClub from a “strong-buy” rating to a “buy” rating in a report released on Monday.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Ansys (NASDAQ:ANSS) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “ANSYS delivered strong results for first-quarter 2018, wherein both the top and bottom lines fared better than the respective Zacks Consensus Estimates. Increasing demand for simulation particularly from industries like energy bodes well for ANSYS. We believe that robust product portfolio, expanding total addressable market improving enterprise penetration, collaborations with leading vendors, and strong balance sheet are the catalysts. Acquisitions like 3DSIM and OPTIS are not only enabling ANSYS to bring innovative solutions to the market but are also aiding it to enhance foothold in the competitive simulations market. However, its margin is expected to remain under pressure as ANSYS continues to invest on product development. Furthermore, adverse foreign currency exchange rates are expected to impede revenue growth in the near term as it generates significant revenues from international market.”
