    On Tuesday afternoon, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) reported excellent results for the fourth quarter of 2018, as a multiyear turnaround effort finally paid off in a big way. Adjusted earnings per share soared 89% to $1.38. This matched the average analyst EPS estimate — but was nearly twice what analysts had been expecting three months ago.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Since transitioning to an ultra-low cost carrier model around the time of the Great Recession, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) has become known for spartan service. Leg room is minimal, and a slew of amenities that are standard on other airlines carry additional charges or aren’t available at all. Spirit’s unpopular policies were designed as part of a ruthless strategy to cut costs so that it could offer the lowest fares.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

 Q: The stock market seems to be reaching new record highs every day. Are there any stocks that still look cheap?

Corporate earnings have exhibited pretty impressive growth as a whole over the past few years, so the market’s performance is somewhat justified. However, many stocks do look to be rather expensive right now — particularly in the tech sector. Yet some bargains remain.

One of my favorite “cheap” stocks right now is AT&T (NYSE: T), even after shares popped following the company’s strong quarterly report. The telecom giant pays a dividend yielding more than 5% and is a Dividend Aristocrat, meaning that it has increased its dividend for more than 25 consecutive years.

Despite a low price-to-earnings multiple of just 13 times 2017’s expected earnings, AT&T has lots of room to grow, especially thanks to its purchase of DIRECTV and its pending acquisition of Time Warner, both of which should give it an advantage over the competition when it comes to bundling services and broadcasting content directly to smartphones and tablets.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now: Spirit Airlines Inc.(SAVE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    In the first few years after its 2011 IPO, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) seemed practically invincible. The carrier used its rock-bottom cost structure to undercut traditional airlines’ fares, enabling it to quickly gain market share while producing industry-leading margins.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Letko Brosseau & Associates Inc. lowered its position in Spirit Airlines Incorporated (NASDAQ:SAVE) by 0.8% in the first quarter, according to the company in its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The firm owned 597,810 shares of the transportation company’s stock after selling 4,950 shares during the period. Letko Brosseau & Associates Inc. owned about 0.88% of Spirit Airlines worth $22,585,000 as of its most recent filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    That Spirit (NYSE:SAVE) took the top spot should come as no surprise, as the company has been a leader in the a la carte flying model, charging  for everything from carry-on bags and seat assignments to soda and snacks. WOW, Frontier, Jet2.com, and Allegiant use similar models as do AirAsia X, HK Express, and Wizz Air. Australian flag carrier Qantas and global major United are more traditional full-fare airlines, but they still managed to crack the top 10 in ancillary revenue.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last fall, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) forecast that its adjusted nonfuel unit costs would decline 3%-5% year over year in 2018. This reflected the ultra-low-cost carrier’s dreadful cost performance during the second quarter of 2017, when a pilot dispute forced Spirit to cancel hundreds of flights. Adjusted nonfuel unit costs surged 10% year over year in that quarter.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The second-worst Dow Jones industrial average stock so far this year is Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG), which is down 14.6%. That is followed by Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT), down 12.2%, and DowDuPont Inc. (NYSE: DWDP) and Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM), both down 10.5%.

  • [By Steve Symington, Leo Sun, and Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Once the largest company in the world, ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) has come under pressure, with falling oil prices and languishing production volumes. But patient investors can take some solace in knowing that while Exxon has ambitious plans to bolster production in the coming years, it will pay you a solid dividend yielding 4.1% annually at current prices while you wait.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Oil giant ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) stumbled into 2018 after reporting lackluster results to end last year. Because of that, its stock endured its worst trading day since 2011 only to follow it up the very next one with a similar rout. While it’s started to recover, it’s still down 5% for the year even though oil has improved another 10%. As a matter of fact, Exxon is currently trading at a valuation not seen since the 1980s.

  • [By ]

    Markets were mixed on Wednesday and then surged higher in afternoon trading, led by the energy sector as oil prices rose following President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. Exxon Mobile (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) led the way, and the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund  (XLE)  posted solid gains.

Best Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

The second quarter of 2017 was a wild one for blockchain companies and investors, with nearly 60 initial coin offerings (ICOs) closed in the quarter for more than $750 million, and it looks like this is just the beginning. It seems that blockchain is about to have an impact on nearly every industry.

While banking, finance and real estate are the so-called usual suspects by being ahead of the curve, even industries like education, social media and security are being disrupted by blockchain-powered startups. Blockchain tech has an inherent connection to cybersecurity. Blockchain technologies are, after all, the culmination of decades of research and breakthroughs in cryptography and security. It offers a totally different approach to storing information, making transactions, performing functions, and establishing trust, which makes it especially suitable for environments with high security requirements and mutually unknown actors.

Best Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now: Rex Energy Corporation(REXX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

Best Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now: Spirit Airlines Inc.(SAVE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Yesterday, shares of United Continental (UAL) and American Airlines (AAL) got pummeled after Delta Air Lines (DAL) offered disappointing guidance. Today, airline stocks are getting smacked again, this time after Credit Suisse Julie Yates and Parker Kim cut their ratings on American and United Continental, while stating a preference for airlines like Southwest Airlines (LUV) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) that have low exposure to international air travel. They explain why:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Given YTD performance, everything looks cheap. But we remain selective. Ex-Spirit Airlines (SAVE), our entire coverage universe is down year-to-date, with most names also underperforming the S&P 500. Multiples have compressed, with diminishing differentiation between (for example) those with declining leverage (Delta) vs. those where leverage is on the rise (America). In a vacuum, a Buy could potentially be argued for any individual name. Based on estimated risk and upside potential, Delta and Southwest are our top two picks.

    Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ:SAVE) suffered huge numbers of flight cancellations earlier this month, as a long-running feud between management and the company’s pilots spilled out into the open.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    There were 67 times this happened, the first coming in June 2011 (airlines didnt guide to margins before that), and 66 of these instances came from Delta, United, andAmerican (the 67th wasSpirit Airlines (SAVE)). As we said earlier the most short term alpha, +5.3%, was generated over the subsequent four days by being long airlines into a guidance update where an airline would merely affirm a PRASM guide but raise the margin guide. This only happened four times and obviously was a result of airlines holding some semblance of price as costs declined.

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Spirit Airlines(NASDAQ:SAVE)has one of the lowest cost structures in the airline industry, but that doesn’t mean that the carrier is immune to the pressures its fellow airlines are facing. For example, over the last two years, Spirit’s labor costs have climbed 4 percentage points, to 20% of total revenue. This is partly due to expanded pilot and crew hiring to accommodate increased capacity, but it also stems from higher wage incentives paid due to collective bargaining agreements.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: AMTEK, Inc.(AME)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: G&K Services, Inc.(GK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We maintain our positive view toward Cintas, particularly as G&K Services (GK) is likely to bolster Cintas’s growth potential over the next few years. However, after strong appreciation since the G&K announcement last August, we believe that much of the good news is already priced in at 25x/22x our pro-forma FY18/FY19 adjusted EPS estimates. As a result, we rate CTAS Sector Perform and await a better entry point.
