Analyst Recommendations for Square (NYSE:SQ)

Two Stocks to Buy Tomorrow and Hold for (at Least) a Year

Shah GilaniShah GilaniShah Gilani

Editor’s Note: Normally you’d be seeing a fresh “Buy, Sell, or Hold” video from Shah today, but he’s traveling over the holiday weekend. He wanted to make sure folks got his two special buy recommendations for the short week ahead, so here’s Shah…

Very, very few companies qualify as “buy now and hold forever” stocks.

There are many more stocks you can buy now and hang onto for the long term – at least a year – with confidence, not to mention a shot at hefty profits.

From that long list of stocks, my team and I narrowed the list down by focusing on powerful trends, markets with strong, predictable rates of growth, and businesses benefitting from rapid high-tech tailwinds – and using these as guides to zero in on sector leaders.

My team and I are putting the finishing touches on that report now, and it’ll appear on the Total Wealth website the second it’s finished. But I wanted to share two of the stocks with everyone today, because I think they’re urgent buys post-Labor Day for folks looking to lock in maximum gains.

Here they are…

Stock No. 1: The Best Thing to Happen to Money in 5,000 Years

Square Inc. (NYSE: SQ) is a fintech leader, and fintech is one of the hottest sectors around today. Square has a leg up on most of the competition in the payments slice of the fintech market.

Payments is where the big advances – and big bucks – figure to be.

Square is a favorite of mine because it’s all about technological transformation. It’s about peer-to-peer payments. The company’s mobile-payments platform is about helping individuals start and grow their businesses. Its Cash App service is going to be a one-stop shop for everything related to finance and e-commerce.

There’s an addressable market that’s huge – huge and growing, I’d add – with no ceiling in sight, just open blue skies.

Square’s now about content, too. Its Tidal division is about artists creating, about ticketing, about merchandising, and, no surprise here, about making money. Square’s numbers are getting better all the time because the company is expanding its platforms and ecosystem. As we saw with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) – a buy-and-hold-forever stock if ever there was one – that’s a winning recipe for continually higher share prices.

Revenue grew 328.95% from 2017 to 2020, and it’s already up another 38.9% over the past 12 months, while the stock itself is up a market-crushing 61% in that time.

Stock No. 2: The Comeback Play That Keeps Going

I’ll tell you flat out: I’ve liked Expedia Group Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPE) for a long, long time despite the ups and downs of the pandemic.

It’s a meat-and-potatoes leisure stock with a juicy side of e-commerce.

One of the truly alluring features of Expedia is a brand portfolio that includes Brand Expedia, a full-service online travel brand with localized websites; Hotels.com for marketing and distributing lodging accommodations; Vrbo, an online marketplace for the alternative accommodations; Orbitz, Travelocity, and CheapTickets travel websites; Hotwire, which offers travel booking services; CarRentals.com, an online car rental booking service; Classic Vacations, a luxury travel specialist; and Expedia Cruise, a provider of advice for travelers booking cruises.

The company’s brand portfolio also comprises Expedia Partner Solutions, a business-to-business (B2B) brand that provides corporate-travel management, airlines, travel agents, online retailers, and financial institutions; and Egencia, which provides corporate-travel-management services. In addition, its brand portfolio consists of Trivago, a hotel metasearch website that sends referrals to online-travel companies and travel-service providers from hotel metasearch websites, and Expedia Group Media solutions. Further, the company provides online travel services through its Wotif.com, lastminute.com.au, travel.com.au, Wotif.co.nz, and lastminute.co.nz brands, loyalty programs, hotel accommodations and alternative accommodations, and advertising and media services.

The performance of the stock since the pandemic has been nothing short of extraordinary – especially in the face of losses as the country and the world shut down. The stock took a dive like everything else; it closed at $48.80 on March 20, 2020. But just 364 days later, March 19, 2021, it closed at an all-time high of $179.98 – a 268% move.

(Between us, it’s possible for smaller stocks to make bigger moves. I can tell you about a class of obscure stocks, one of which saw an exceptional 22,207% in less than a year – more on that here.)

Concerns about the delta variant coronavirus have helped push it back down to $146, which, in my view, is a great buy-in. Look to hold this one for a year, if not longer, as it bounces back and then some.

Like I said at the beginning, I’ve got a lot more stocks to talk about, including two “lotto-ticket” rocket-rider stocks. If you’re subscribed to my free Total Wealth e-letter, you can be among the first to get the report when it’s released. Truth be told, you’ll get a lot more than that, like my weekly “Buy, Sell, or Hold” videos and my “cheap stocks” picks, too.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

I own roughly 30 stocks in my personal portfolio, but there are some I bought because I think they’re currently undervalued — not necessarily because I think I’ll hold them forever.

On the other hand, there are a few stocks in my portfolio that I could see myself holding throughout the rest of my career, throughout my retirement, and eventually passing on to my children. I’m not even 40 yet, so that’s quite a long time horizon. And while I’m not necessarily committing to holding these stocks forever, here’s why Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B), Public Storage (NYSE:PSA), and AT&T (NYSE:T) could be core components of my portfolio for decades to come.

I’m happy to let the greatest investor of all time take the reins with my money

Berkshire Hathaway was one of the first stocks I ever bought in my retirement account and it remains a staple of my portfolio today. The Warren Buffett-led conglomerate owns a collection of more than 60 subsidiary businesses and also has a huge stock portfolio with major investments in companies like Apple, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, and more. In fact, because of the diverse nature of Berkshire’s business, I’ve said that if I could only own one stock, that would be it.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Monetizing Venmo has been a big challenge for PayPal, especially as Square (NYSE:SQ) has shown excellent progress finding ways to monetize its Cash App. PayPal has largely taken to copying some of the same  monetization efforts as Square, including instant withdrawals to bank accounts and developing a prepaid debit card linked to the account. PayPal has also made progress in attracting merchants to its Pay with Venmo feature, which works just like PayPal’s core feature.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now: REGENXBIO Inc.(RGNX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    The programs address a variety of rare indications that collectively represent about 10,000 children. Because rare genetic disease therapies command six-figure prices, this acquisition could result in medicines that move the needle someday. However, there’s no guarantee these programs will pan out, and competitors are also working on gene therapies for these indications. For example, Regenxbio (NASDAQ:RGNX) announced it’s using its proprietary AAV vectors to create a gene therapy for Batten disease it hopes to usher into human trials next year.

After a prolonged correction, Bitcoin is back big time. The &a;ldquo;people&a;rsquo;s currency&a;rdquo; gained close to 7% this week, stabilizing around the $11,000 mark.

Is this comeback for real?

Hard to say, as there are hardly any &a;ldquo;fundamentals&a;rdquo; to judge whether Bitcoin is undervalued or overvalued at these levels. Still, there are a couple of bullish signs for the digital currency worth noticing.

One of them is that Bitcoin is beginning to behave like the &a;lsquo;new gold,&a;rsquo; shining in times of extreme uncertainty that take over Wall Street.

There was a time when gold would shine as Wall Street faltered. That was long time ago, when it was the hedge against uncertainty. It was the asset where investors could park their cash in times of political and economic turmoil.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019: ABAXIS Inc.(ABAX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a generally favorable day for the stock market, with modest gains for most major benchmarks even as the Russell 2000 once again hit intraday record highs. Most investors’ attention was focused on the retail sector, where an especially strong performance from department store giant Macy’s suggested that the long period of difficult conditions for brick-and-mortar retailers might finally have come to an end. Ongoing concerns about other factors — including the move in the 10-year Treasury yield above the 3% mark and the outcome of a possible summit between U.S. and North Korean leaders — helped keep the gains somewhat in check. But some companies had good news that sent their shares sharply higher. Under Armour (NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA), Boot Barn Holdings (NYSE:BOOT), and Abaxis (NASDAQ:ABAX) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: AAPL, DBX, STMP
    Shares of Dropbox Inc. (NYSE: DBX) plunged more than 10% after the company’s forward guidance fell well short of Wall Street expectations Thursday. Even though the firm topped quarterly earnings and revenue expectations, the cloud storage giant announced it would take a large write down on the value of its recent HelloSign acquisition. That will impact company margins in the year ahead, in addition to the firm’s plans to relocate offices to San Francisco, where rents are much higher. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) continues to remain in the headlines. The firm’s iPhone sales had been declining before the company decided to stop reporting unit sales beginning this year. But as Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald told readers in October 2017, Apple is no longer a device company. In fact, it hasn’t been a device company for years. Its shift into services has helped boost investor confidence, and it just made a major announcement that will target firms like Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Hulu. Apple is one of our top five stocks to buy right now. For the full list, go here now. Shares of Stamps.com Inc. (NASDAQ: STMP) plunged more than 50% in pre-market hours after the shipping products company announced it was ending its exclusive partnership with the USPS. The company also said it expected a massive downturn in profitability. The firm’s full-year guidance was set between $5.15 and $6.15. That is well below the $10.79 figure anticipated by analysts. During its earnings call last night, the firm’s CEO said that USPS would not accept the terms of its partnership proposal. On Friday, look for earnings reports from Aut

    Wednesday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, with major market benchmarks closing the day mixed, but nearly flat. Market participants were briefly enthusiastic about the potential to set new record highs following reports that the U.S. and China were mulling further trade negotiations, but the positive impact of that announcement largely waned as the day progressed. Nevertheless, investors focusing on company-specific news found some reasons to celebrate. Altria Group (NYSE:MO), Galapagos (NASDAQ:GLPG), and Laredo Petroleum (NYSE:LPI) were among the best performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these businesses to tell you why their stocks did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Britain’s BAE Systems (NASDAQOTH:BAESF) (NASDAQOTH:BAESY) is a behemoth, doing more than $24 billion in annual business and valued in excess of $26 billion — yet it’s largely unknown to U.S. investors, a consequence of its stock being traded over the counter and not on major U.S. stock exchanges like the NYSE or Nasdaq. That could change, however, with BAE winning a big endorsement from investment megabank Morgan Stanley this morning.
