Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

Our favorite holding period is forever. — Warren Buffett

Forever is an awfully long time. Heck, the average holding period for stocks isn’t even one year anymore, since the advent of online trading, computer-driven high-speed trading, and steadily falling brokerage costs. But even with so much of a shift toward short-term trading, the most-effective way for individual investors to get the best returns remains the simplest: Buy great companies and hold them as long as possible. 

Owning stocks that pay a dividend can make it much easier to hold on to them, particularly if they have the ability to steadily increase the payout and solid prospects to grow the business. To help find the best long-term dividend stocks out there, we asked three of our Motley Fool investors for a little help. They came back with Gaming and Leisure Properties Inc (NASDAQ:GLPI), AES Corp (NYSE:AES), and Caretrust REIT Inc (NASDAQ:CTRE).

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), likewise, said it would stick with its $2.3 billion drilling budget, which is enough money to grow oil and gas production in the U.S. by 25% to 30% versus last year. Because of that capital discipline, Marathon is on pace to produce more than $500 million in excess cash this year, and that’s assuming crude averages $60 a barrel.

    Melrose Industries (LON:MRO) had its price target upped by Numis Securities from GBX 250 ($3.39) to GBX 280 ($3.80) in a research report report published on Monday morning. They currently have a buy rating on the stock.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The second expansion track the company took was the acquisition of a 70% interest in the Athabasca Oil Sands Project from Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO). The company paid CA$12.74 billion ($9.9 billion) in cash and stock for this world-class oil sands mining asset, which was less than the cost of building a similar project. The sale enabled Shell and Marathon to get some cash to pay down debt, while the transaction added two mines to Canadian Natural Resources’ portfolio that have the capacity to produce 280,000 BPD. In addition, the company picked up a stake in a 100,000 BPD expansion project and acquired several other oil sands leases from Shell and Marathon, two of which were producing an average of 13,800 BPD.

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) could outperform in that scenario.

  • [By Zacks]

    Oil production is surging in Canada but producers are far from happy as their profit margin is sinking and they are striving to stay competitive with their U.S. counterparts. While upstream companies like Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO), Hess Corporation (NYSE: HES) and others are enjoying the shale boom and rebound in prices in the United States, their Canadian counterparts like Cenovus Energy Inc. (NYSE: CVE) and others are thinking of reducing production. The primary reason behind this is the shortage of pipelines in the country. In short, pipeline construction in Canada has failed to keep pace with rising domestic oil production – the heavier sour variety churned out of the oil sands –  resulting in infrastructural bottlenecks. This has also forced producers to give away their products at a discounted rate.

Top 5 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018: Suzuki Motor Corporation (SZKMY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Elon has plans for a Gigafactory 3 somewhere in the US unlike the Gigafactory in Europe. If Tesla can get just two Gigafactories built, it will have the batteries at least to produce vehicles at about the same scale as Suzuki (OTCPK:SZKMY) (Suzuki made about 3mm autos in 2015). In fact, Tesla hopes to have the Gigafactory running flat out by 2020, supplying 3X the number of batteries it needs unless it can ramp production into 2020 further. These batteries will be used on the Tesla Power Walls and other power containment devices it has in its pipeline, but it sure seems that Tesla can ramp its auto production past the 500k units per year in 2019 and 2020. At the very least, it will likely have the batteries to do so.

Top 5 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018: Green Brick Partners, Inc.(GRBK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedgoing long on small cap homebuilder stockGreen Brick Partners (NASDAQ: GRBK):

    For Green Brick Partners, we’re mainly feeding off of the hammer-shaped reversal bar from last week. That long-tailed low only had to kiss the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.45 to kick-start a reversal, and we’ve seen some nice bullish follow-through so far. Ideally we’d like to see a move above the February ceiling around $9.90, but we fear waiting that long could leave us chasing it higher. See, what you can’t see on the chart (because it’s further back) is that GRBK is no stranger to multi-point runups. Based on its past runs, Green Brick Partners could be in the high teens before you even know it.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) is a direct selling company, which develops and distributes personal care products and nutritional supplements that are sold under the Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands. This stock closed up 5.4% at $92.96 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 2 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 900,802

    Volume % Change: 85%

    From a technical perspective, NUS ripped higher here right above some near-term support at $85 with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of NUS into breakout and new 52-week-high territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $88.20 to $89.69. This move also pushed shares of NUS above the upper-end of its recent range that saw the stock trend between $82 to just above $89.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NUS as long as it’s trending above support at $85 and then once it sustains a move or close above Monday’s high of $93.33 with volume that this near or above 900,802 shares. If we get that move soon, then NUS will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $100 to $105.

    Stock gainers included Mercadolibre Inc (NASDAQ: MELI), up almost 14 percent, and Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS), which added 12 percent. The positive gains in both stocks were due to strong earnings reports. Shares of Liberty Interactive Group (NASDAQ: QVCA) plunged almost 22 percent on Friday due to disappointing sales growth in its fiscal second quarter. Pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (NYSE: BMY) lost 16 percent after a disappointing study involving its Opdivo drug.

    Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) is trading sharply higher on Friday, but options traders are buying puts in the name, said Jon Najarian. Traders were buying the June 50 puts and they paid around 6 percent for them, so they don't see much upside in Nu Skin Enterprises, explained Najarian. He followed the trade and he is planning to hold the position for a month.

    Citigroup’s Beth Kite calls Nu Skin Enterprises’ (NUS) earnings and guidance “awfully disappointing.” She explains why:

    “Frustrating” Describes 4Q15 & 2016 Guidance:Nu Skin (i) reported 4Q15 EPS of $0.62, 11 cents below consensus and us, and (ii) lowered 2016 EPS guidance, from $3.25-$3.40 to $2.40-$2.60.Nu Skin had three LTO’s in 4Q152 succeeded and 1 failed. The failure had far less to do with the product than with the sales strategy…

    Is Guidance Too Conservative or Is It Really This Bad? We get that Me failed to sell well in South Korea with the 12-month cartridge commitment. But given the strength in reps globally, the strength of Youth from its two LTOs in 2H15, and good results from Me when sold in Japan without the 12-month commitment, we wonder if guidance is aggressive to the downside. Indeed, the word “conservative” was said a lot by mgmt on the brief earnings call when describing guidance revisions.

    Maintaining Buy: While we now have less confidence in mgmt, from an external perspective, to forecast its results accurately, and from an internal perspective, to course correct quicklyi.e., why didn’t they drop the 12-month plan for Me in South Korea when it so obviously wasn’t workingwe are still confident in Youth & Me. The rep growth in South Asia/Pacific from Youth in 3Q led to better 4Q sales than we’d expected, Youth’s Americas LTO in 4Q drove lc sales up 26% YoY, and Me not only sold through in Japan in 4Q but also drove reps higher. We imagine that investors may have little patience or confidence in Nu Skin for a while, understandably. But the bar seems set fairly low now, so we are cautiously optimistic that Nu Skin can dig itself out of this hole as we go through 2016 and Me & Youth roll out more fully.

    Shares of Nu Skin have tumbled 13% to $27.31 at 2:11 p.m. today.

Starbucks is going through somewhat of a rough patch, as the company reported disappointing Q2 2017 results with comparable sales growth slowing due to congestion caused by its mobile order pay and system. While the company is positive that the issues have been resolved and comps will start improving in the next quarter, analysts are not optimistic about the company meeting expectations. However, Starbucks is continuing its growth focus which includes its goal to double the food business by 2021. “Mercato,” the company’s menu of lunch items which include grab and go salads and sandwiches, is the pillar of this initiative. However, Starbucks recently partnered with Snap Kitchen to sell their products at its five cafes in Houston. The company hopes to expand this partnership in other regions soon. In addition to the “Mercato” initiative, we believe the partnership with Snap Kitchen will help Starbucks to cater to customers who prefer meals with healthier ingredients and can act as a catalyst for its goal of increasing revenues from food sales.

list of penny stocks: Suzuki Motor Corporation (SZKMY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Elon has plans for a Gigafactory 3 somewhere in the US unlike the Gigafactory in Europe. If Tesla can get just two Gigafactories built, it will have the batteries at least to produce vehicles at about the same scale as Suzuki (OTCPK:SZKMY) (Suzuki made about 3mm autos in 2015). In fact, Tesla hopes to have the Gigafactory running flat out by 2020, supplying 3X the number of batteries it needs unless it can ramp production into 2020 further. These batteries will be used on the Tesla Power Walls and other power containment devices it has in its pipeline, but it sure seems that Tesla can ramp its auto production past the 500k units per year in 2019 and 2020. At the very least, it will likely have the batteries to do so.
