Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

I really have an active dislike for the term “blue-chip stock.”

Plain and simple: the term is outdated. A lot of large-cap familiar names are still called “blue-chip stock” when they are nothing of the kind. If you can’t rid the term “blue-chip stock” from your lexicon, then it should at least apply to a whole new stream of companies.

“Blue-chip stock” used to refer to companies that were constantly growing earnings in the high single-digits or more in terms of percentage, had a fortress balance sheet and were constantly innovating. The seven stocks I’m about to talk about have either none of these traits or, at best, have a really solid balance sheet.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On the surface, Energy Transfer Partners’ ultra-high-yielding payout looks like it’s on solid ground. During the first quarter of 2018, the company covered it with cash flow by a comfortable 1.1 times after adjusting for the support provided by parent company Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE), which has temporarily reduced its management fees to help its MLP fund a large slate of expansion projects. That’s a noticeable improvement from the year-ago quarter when Energy Transfer Partners would have paid out all its cash flow, and then some, if it weren’t for the assistance of Energy Transfer Equity.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Midstream giant Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE) has been excruciatingly volatile over the past few years. At one point, units of the master limited partnership (MLP) lost more than 80% of their value, and they are currently about 50% below their peak. While the volatility has moderated somewhat this year — with units flat overall — they’ve still been all over the map, up almost 10% at one point before plunging double-digits and then recovering.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Teladoc, Inc.(TDOC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    Absent a groundswell in medical school enrollment, new models of healthcare delivery — such as telehealth — may be the only way to maintain quality of care while also increasing patient access meaningfully enough to bend the cost curve. Telehealth solutions, such as those offered by Teladoc (NYSE:TDOC), can reduce supply bottlenecks by filling empty slots in schedules and offering access outside of traditional doctor’s office hours. It frees doctors up to see more patients by reducing administrative burdens, including billing, and because telehealth doctors don’t need office space to see patients, it may provide a new, less-costly business model for providers, as well.

    Shares of PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP) are on the move after the snack and beverage company reported earnings before the bell. Shares topped $114 after the firm’s report came in line with Wall Street earnings expectations of $1.49. However, the firm did offer a weaker profit outlook thanks to higher CAPEX and a stronger U.S. dollar. Warren Buffett is back at it again. According to SEC filings, Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) bought a large stake in cyber giant Red Hat Inc. (NYSE: RHT). The firm cut its holdings in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and completely sold off its position in Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL). TrueCar Inc. (NASDAQ: TRUE) shares plunged more than 17% after the company fell well short of earnings and revenue expectations after the bell yesterday. The firm also issued weak quarterly and full-year guidance. TrueCar reported earnings per share of $0.03, missing expectations by $0.02. Revenue of $91.1 million missed consensus expectations of $95.7 million. Ongoing weakness in the auto industry and global macroeconomic factors are hurting TrueCar and its competitors. On Friday, look for earnings reports from Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE), Moody’s Corp. (NYSE: MCO), Newell Brands Inc. (NYSE: NWL), and Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc. (NYSE: RBS).

Hot Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019: Braskem S.A.(BAK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market eased lower on Friday, but major benchmarks managed to come back considerably from their worst levels of the day. At its lows, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down more than 200 points following news that the U.S. would indeed move forward with tariffs against China. Yet even though China announced plans to retaliate in kind, market participants seemed willing to give trade policy the benefit of the doubt given the current strength of the U.S. economy. Some stocks saw nice gains in response to the news, as well as to company-specific events. Schnitzer Steel Industries (NASDAQ:SCHN), Braskem (NYSE:BAK), and Pivotal Software (NYSE:PVTL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Millennium Management LLC cut its holdings in shares of Braskem SA (NYSE:BAK) by 40.9% in the 1st quarter, Holdings Channel reports.

Millennium Management LLC’s holdings in Braskem were worth $15,625,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

    Digging deeper into two seemingly healthy dividend yields proves this point. Investors may discover that coal producer Alliance Resource Partners LP (NASDAQ:ARLP) and gold miner Gold Fields (NYSE:GFI) are two dividend stocks to avoid. Meanwhile, the high yield of Brazilian chemical manufacturer Braskem (NYSE:BAK) passes the test — and could even grow stronger in the near future.

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

  • [By Jordan Wathen]

    As USG Corporation (NYSE:USG) drags its feet on an offer to sell the company for $42 per share, Berkshire intends to use its 30.8% ownership stake to motivate its top brass to make a deal. Berkshire told Bloomberg it intends to vote its shares against USG’s board members who are up for re-election at this year’s annual meeting, a clear message that Buffett is ready to cash in, even if USG’s management and board are not.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks For 2018

In our view, shares of Qualcomm (QCOM – $54.24) were unfairly battered by short-sighted folks, notes Jason Clark, value investor and contributing editor to The Prudent Speculator.

The stock plunged as much as 14% in one day in response to the news that Apple (AAPL) filed a lawsuit accusing the semiconductor manufacturing firm of monopolizing the market for mobile phone chips and withholding $1 billion in rebates.

The timing of the filing was curious, as it seemed to piggyback on an FTC complaint filed on January 17 that charged the company with using anticompetitive tactics.

pple then filed another lawsuit in China over fees, requesting 1 billion yuan of damages ($145 million USD).Qualcomm General Counsel Don Rosenberg responded, While we are still in the process of reviewing the complaint in detail, it is quite clear that Apples claims are baseless.QCOM shares recovered some of the losses, but the progress turned out to be for naught after the companys fiscal Q1 2017 results release.

What a monumental month for EVs – matched with near-record global sales.
