Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019

Companies hate to cut dividends. Knowing the backlash they’ll get from stockholders, many executives and board members consider it a desperate act of last resort. They will halt non-discretionary expenditures, reduce payroll and overhead, and even take on debt in order to maintain distributions.

And that’s exactly why dividend hikes send such a strong bullish signal. A company wouldn’t bump quarterly payouts to $0.60 per share from $0.50 unless it were fairly certain that incoming cash flows would be more than sufficient to cover the higher dividend, with room to spare. The last thing they want is to raise it today only to lower back down tomorrow. A dividend hike is a clear vote of confidence for future success.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019: Sempra Energy(SRE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Sempra Energy’s (NYSE:SRE) acquisition of Oncor was a bit of a coup on Wall Street, as it was able to outbid Berkshire Hathaway for the Texas utility. The victory didn’t come cheap, though, as Sempra had to cough up $9.5 billion and take on quite a bit of debt in the process of completing the deal. Even though the company sees immense potential in the purchase and the growth opportunities that come with it, shares of Sempra have been mostly flat for the past year.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Sempra Energy (NYSE:SRE) was downgraded by Wells Fargo & Co to a “hold” rating in a research note issued on Tuesday.

    Other analysts also recently issued research reports about the stock.

TheStreet upgraded shares of Sempra Energy from a “c+” rating to a “b” rating in a report on Monday, May 7th. Scotiabank upgraded shares of Sempra Energy from a “sector perform” rating to an “outperform” rating in a report on Thursday, April 26th.

Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Edwards Lifesciences Corporation(EW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Shares of Edwards Lifesciences (EW) jumped to the top of the S&P 500 today after the medical-device maker offered its 2017 guidance this morning at its investor day.

    Getty Images

    Shares of Edwards Lifesciences gained 6.7% to $89.31 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.2% to 2,246.19.

    Wells Fargo’sLarry Biegelsen offers his take on Edwards Lifesciences’ guidance:

    Edwards Lifesciences Corporation (EW-$83.73; Outperform) provided its 2017 outlook this morning (12/8) ahead of its investor meeting today. As expected, the company highlighted its robust pipeline which should drive strong growth for years to come. However, the company now expects Q4 16 revenue to come in at the low end of the guidance range due to currency and weakness in surgical heart valves. The 2017 guidance was generally strong on the top and bottom line, with both bracketing consensus.

    For 2017, EW expects sales of $3.0-3.4B and 10-14% underlying growth. This compares to consensus of $3.3B and 12.3% underlying growth (were at 12.6%)… For 2017 EPS, EW expects $3.30-3.45 which includes $0.10 dilution from the Valtech deal (something we highlighted in our preview) and $0.08-0.10 benefit from the accounting change for stock based compensation. Backing these two items out implies guidance of about $3.30-3.45 which compares to consensus of $3.40 and our estimate of $3.41…

    As expected, the pipeline updates were highly positive. While the initial reaction to the Q4 guidance will likely be negative, we are highly confident that the strong 2017 guidance and robust pipeline update will be the main takeaways from the meeting today.

    No negativity here: Edwards Lifesciences’ market capitalization rose to $19.1 billion today from $17.9 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $495 million on sales of $2.5 billion in 2015.

    Edwards Lifesciences (EW) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after the medical-device company beat earnings and revenue forecasts, and raised its full-year guidance.

    Getty Images

    Edwards Lifesciencesgained 11% to 109.33, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,387.45.

    Mogran Stanley’s David Lewis andScott Wang contend that that Edwards Lifesciences is “back on track.” They explain:

    US sequential acceleration returns to the prior curve and debunks the bear case. Sequential growth in US [transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR,] in 1Q17 was ~12%, more in line with the ~13.5% average growth rate seen in the five quarters leading up to 3Q16. It’s hard to pinpoint the drivers, but we see several dynamics, including: (i) underlying device utilization thus far in 1Q, (ii) faster ramp at new hospitals where one additional TAVR per center is worth $15mn (~65% of the US upside we saw this quarter), and (iii) less acute competitive pressure from Medtronic (MDT) on larger valve sizes. SURTAVI likely played a limited role but management did not rule it out. Guidance implies a more conservative q/q US growth of ~3% for the rest of the year vs the ~12% this quarter, but underlying strength in the quarter is a material shift in US growth and intermediate penetration. As we stated in our preview, we favored the risk reward into the quarter given achievable expectations and the >20 point lag vs Intuitive YTD and would expect significant recovery tomorrow. Momentum likely continues into 2Q17 as signs of improving intermediate risk penetration provide important offsets to increased competition from Boston in early-2018 before mitral takes hold.

    Edwards Lifesciences’ market capitalization rose to $23.1 billion today from $20.9 billion yesterday.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Broadcom Corporation(BRCM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Susquehanna reported on Tuesday that it has raised its rating on Broadcom Corporation (BRCM).

    The firm has upgraded BRCM from “Neutral” to “Positive,” and has lifted the company’s price target from $33 to $35. This price target suggests a 23% upside from the stock’s current price of $26.91.

    Analyst Chris Caso commented: “Our downgrade of BRCM in May was predicated on already high Street expectations on handsets and no notable improvement in networking to drive upside. We think expectations and the stock price have now been sufficiently reset ahead of what we expect to be catalysts in 2014 including the iPhone 6 product cycle, potential improvement in networking and the impact from the recent Renesas acquisition. In addition, after several years of overspending on their handset initiatives, we think we are now closer to the point where the company either captures a return on that investment or is forced to moderate spending either of which benefit profitability. We see the upcoming December analyst meeting as a potential intermediate catalyst.”

    Broadcom shares were up 38 cents, or 1.41%, during pre-market trading Tuesday. The stock is down 19% YTD.

BMY has a strong oncology pipeline that could work well with PFE or even Gilead (NASDAQ:GILD). GILD has an interest in oncology, and has plenty of cash for a buyout.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Following past boom/bust cycles, the oil business appears to have bottomed in February 2016 at $27 a barrel. The bruising multi-year bust in crude oil prices was the biggest reason for the world stock market sell-off from late 2015 to early 2016 of roughly 15% overall. The cruel irony of ultra-low prices is its disruptive effect on regular exploration activity. A short-term oil market depression in expectations disproportionately slashes oil drilling activity. Oil exploration budgets for 2017 are down 65% from 2014 and the smallest in 12 years, DESPITE a record estimate for global demand next year. In the long-run, oil & gas development and production may fail to keep pace with the steady growth in total demand. Will the 2015-16 “bust” sow the seeds of the next “boom” phase in pricing?

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Augmented reality (AR) has been getting a lot of attention of late.Last summer it was the blockbuster Pokemon GO game that put the technology on everyone’s radar. The rage now is apps that enable real-time overlay of images or video onto the real world: Think Snap, Inc.’s (NYSE:SNAP) new Snapchat feature, World Lenses, or its long-loved dog ears filter.

    Today was a sign of a healthy market, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Thursday, as the much heralded IPO of Snap (SNAP) went off without a hitch. Cramer said there were a lot of things that could have gone wrong today, but didn’t, and that will only help bring more buyers to the stock market.

    One of the biggest technology IPOs in a long long time is coming our way. Yes, we are talking about the much-talked about IPO of Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP) the parent of Snapchat, the Venice, California-basedphoto sharing platform. The news mill has been buzzing as more and more details emerge as we near the IPO date. With the IPO just a day away, the big question to ask is whether or not Snapchat IPO is worth buying into. Can the company justify the huge valuations it is seeking?

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) was started as Neutral with a $20 price target at Mizuho. Its post-IPO range is $19.75 to $29.44, and it was a $17 price at the official IPO allocation.

  • [By Vikram Nagarkar]

    We’ve all been talking about how Facebook (NASDAQ:FB)has been going after Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP), replicating its innovative features and in effect stalling user growth on the platform. There’s not much user growth to speak of on Twitter, and arguably, there isn’t too much innovation either in terms of the product. So, when big guys like Amazon go after the niche audience that does love a platform like Twitter, it can be quite unnerving. What’s more, it’s not the big guys alone. There are small players likeMastodon, which is aimed at being an “actually viable alternative to Twitter”. My colleague covered this in a recent post covering Twitter. And apparently, it’s already quite popular. To be honest, we don’t think Twitter will die anytime soon. However, it’s hard to see how Twitter will be anything more than it is today – a compelling hobby for under 5% of the world’s population.

    Snapchat IPO has grabbed theattention of most investors and traders for some time now, especially after making a stellar debut, gaining more than 44% on the first day of listing. Though the Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP) stock has lost the crown of the most successful IPO of the year since then to Mulesoft Inc (NYSE:MULE), the stock still continues to attract significant interest from investors and traders alike. Like most stocks whose valuations is based on ‘vision’ and ‘story’, SNAP stock remains a very contentious stock with asharp division within analysts and the investing community.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: Immersion Corporation(IMMR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Thursday, our Under the Radar Movers newsletter suggested shorting small cap technology stock Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ: IMMR):

    We love how well developed the selling of Immersion shares has been. Rather than a sharp, v-shaped reversal — which may or may not follow through — we’ve seen a bowl-shaped transition from an uptrend to a downtrend. This ups the odds of downside follow-through, as there’s been no price “shock” to invite a sudden wave of buying.

However, the CEOs of Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG), Cognizant Technology Solutions (NASDAQ:CTSH), General Electric (NYSE:GE), MasterCard (NYSE:MA), and Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) have been able to achieve this translation very well.

    This one could be the easiest of advances, both because credit losses are down big and because its credit-card brethren — Capital One Financial, Discover, Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA) — have all had significant rallies. I actually regard this stock as inexpensive and think it can be bought here now that it has fully absorbed the loss of the Costco (COST) business to Visa and Citigroup (C) .
