Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019

&l;p&g;&l;img class=&q;dam-image shutterstock size-large wp-image-300891914&q; src=&q;https://specials-images.forbesimg.com/dam/imageserve/300891914/960×0.jpg?fit=scale&q; data-height=&q;639&q; data-width=&q;960&q;&g; Shutterstock

Cheap in this sense meaning the type of stock classically described by Benjamin Graham and his student, Warren Buffett, as an undervalued situation — or, these days, more often referred to simply as a value stock. It doesn&s;t necessarily mean it&s;s worth buying, but when the price/earnings ratio is significantly lower than the market as a whole – and other factors are present — it might be worth further evaluation. That&s;s the idea.

These types of stocks typically do not make headlines. Financial media outlets do not track the movements of their CEO&s;s relentlessly as if they were celebrity figures. These companies are not much talked about at social occasions like family gatherings or at the country club after a round of golf with business associates. Mostly, these are the opposite of hot stocks.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019: Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    CBAK is in a very competitive industry, as well as being small relative to its competitors. Among the Company’s competitors are giants like Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), but overall it faces competition from Japan, Korea, and China. Although CBAK states that “we are able to leverage our low-cost advantage to compete favorably with our competitors”, it is hard to see that being the reality, especially when looking at the above gross margins. Still, the Company may enjoy lower labor costs, since it sources labor locally and apparently it has “higher consistency and safety in product quality, which enables us to compete favorably with local competitors”. But given the greater resources of at least some of its competitors and the constantly evolving dynamics of the industry, competition is surely a risk factor to consider.

    However, Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) announced this week that it was happy to consider further investment in the Nevada facility. A similar move in China is not unlikely. Tesla expects to triple its energy storage business this year but its problem has been getting supply to meet the demand. Panasonic’s announcement is probably connected to a very substantial energy storage contract win just announced by the company.

    JOLED is a company that was established in 2014 by by Japan Display, Sony (NYSE:SNE) and Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY). And they are not the only ones:

    During an OLED display Seminar in Korea, UniJet’s CEO Kim Seok-Soon said that new advances in Ink-Jet printing technologies could enable displays that are over 500 PPI – and so make printing a viable technology to produce small and medium-sized OLED panels.
