Top Safest Stocks For 2022

One day many years ago, I found myself stuck in traffic and noticed a peculiar sign. It said something about the construction that was going on — the very thing that was hampering my commute.

It said all this construction was being funded by a bond. This was before I had ever started my career in finance, so bonds were an unfamiliar thing. But when I began my investment career, I soon realized that I could actually invest in these things. And the more I learned, the more I was ecstatic.

After all, If you can’t beat ’em, might as well make money off them…

You see, these types of bonds have a name — general obligation bonds — a type of municipal, or “muni” bond for short. These bonds are used for everything from helping fund road construction to building schools, bridges, water infrastructure and other public buildings. As I became more familiar with municipal bonds, I quickly became a fan. In fact, in my experience, muni-bonds are one of the safest ways for investors to earn income in today’s market — while also beating the tax man. (More on that in a moment.)

Mallinckrodt’s jaundice drug rejected by the FDA

Company: Mallinckrodt (NYSE:MNK)

Therapy: Stannsoporfin

Disease: Severe jaundice

News: MNK announced that a joint advisory committee at the FDA has voted against the risk-benefit profile of its medication stannsoporfin, which was intended to prevent severe hemolysis in newborns who are at risk of severe jaundice. The company guided that it would seek FDA input on what further data might be required in order to get a positive vote in the future.

Looking forward: And so the stannsoporfin story ends…for now! At this time, this looks like a very expensive ($80 million) mistake on the part of MNK, but I think it’s reasonable to expect that it’ll be able to resolve the data issues that sunk this application. But that’s going to take some serious time, and you can probably put this one in the back of your mind for at least another year, I’d wager.

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Coherus BioSciences, Inc.(CHRS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Coherus Biosciences (NASDAQ: CHRS) and Allena Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNA) are both small-cap medical companies, but which is the better stock? We will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their risk, dividends, earnings, profitability, analyst recommendations, institutional ownership and valuation.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Coherus BioSciences (NASDAQ:CHRS) gained nearly 49% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The company announced a global settlement with AbbVie that will allow the small-cap biopharma to commercialize a biosimilar to Humira, which was developed as CHS-1420. The pair had previously sparred over patents related to formulating the antibody.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Coherus BioSciences (NASDAQ:CHRS) fell over 18% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

    The biopharma stock erupted higher in July after Coherus announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) — a European Union regulatory body that makes recommendations to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which is the equivalent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — would reconsider the company’s application for a generic version of Neulasta (pegfilgrastim).

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    Shares of Chinese internet company Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) fell as much as 11.8% on Wednesday, following the company’s first-quarter earnings release. The stock is down 8.4% at the time of this writing.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    The market isn’t warming up to Sohu.com’s (NASDAQ:SOHU) latest financial report. Its shares are hitting their lowest levels since the summer of 2007 after the Chinese online advertising, search, and gaming specialist posted disappointing first-quarter results on Wednesday morning. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), Camping World Holdings (NYSE:CWH), and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) have taken a beating this year. They’re among the biggest losers through the first three quarters of 2018. Let’s go over why I think they have a shot at bouncing back in the next three months.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    It’s now been seven months since Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) completed its objective of spinning off Sogou. Sogou had been the fastest growing component at Sohu for years. It should have taken off after trading on its own merits, but that failed to happen. Though the shares inched slightly higher in their first few days of trading, Sogou has spent most of its time since late November as a broken IPO until it finally cracked the $13 ceiling today in intraday trading.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Sogou’s shares are prone to big swings for a couple of simple reasons.

    As a Chinese business, many American investors don’t feel connected to Sogou’s business and might not have access to some important sources of information about this company and its stock. Though Sogou has been around for nearly a decade now, it only entered the public markets in November of 2017. It’s a new ticker, untested on the market, and not always easily understood through year-over-year or longer-term analyses. At the IPO, Chinese internet giants Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) combined for a total ownership of 82% of Sogu’s business. Those stakes later declined to 71%, but Sohu and Tencent remain Sogou’s largest shareholders, with 96% of the voting power in shareholder elections and votes. Regular investors hold a very small stake in Sogou, which tends to boost the stock’s volatility.

    Moreover, Chinese regulators launched an investigation of Sogou in June, forcing the company to shut down parts of its online advertising operations for 10 days in early July. The company is accused of showing video ads that insulted a national hero. That blackout will reduce Sogou’s third-quarter revenues by a significant but unannounced amount.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) is still struggling to fire on all cylinders, but investors nonetheless bid shares of the dot-com pioneer higher on Friday after it posted mixed fourth-quarter results. Revenue clocked in at $482.2 million for the final three months of 2018, a 5% decline from a year earlier, but a 5% sequential improvement. 

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: LGI Homes, Inc.(LGIH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    This isn’t to say that investing in homebuilding is an awful idea — the trends mentioned above are incredibly strong indicators that investing in housing can pay off. What matters is you have to be incredibly discerning when selecting the business in which you want to invest. To me, there are only two stocks that are really worth exploring as potential investments: LGI Homes (NASDAQ:LGIH) and NVR Inc. (NYSE:NVR). Here’s why these two homebuilders stand out among the crowd.

Best Safest Stocks For 2019

1. Blame the bonds: The normally boring bond market is causing serious drama on Wall Street.

An avalanche of selling sent the Dow and S&P 500 careening 5% lower last week, one of the stock market’s worst weeks since the 2008 financial crisis.

The culprit: Rapidly rising bond yields are alarming investors who got hooked on a decade of low interest rates.

So what’s going on here? And why the focus on the bond market?

Modern financial markets function on the belief that U.S. government debt is the safest investment on the planet.

Knowing how much they can earn from “risk-free” Treasury bonds allows investors to determine the cost of stocks and other riskier assets. Treasuries serve as the benchmark for all other forms of credit, from junk bonds to mortgages.

“The 10-year Treasury sets the price for every asset in the world,” said Brent Schutte, chief investment strategist at Northwestern Mutual.

That means the surge in the 10-year yield — from 2.4% earlier this year to about 2.8% now — has increased the cost of money generally.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

EMM & QNX will be the growth drivers going forward. But the risks in BlackBerry stock continue to remain elevated.

BlackBerry(NSDQ:BBRY)stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).

BlackBerry’s latest fiscal third quarter was definitely a mixed bag. On one hand, you had aggressive margin expansion and a surprising profitable quarter on a non-GAAP basis, but on the other hand, top line came in $20 million short of what was expected. A return to revenue growth is expected next year with enterprise software & QNX probably leading the way. Blackberryand its investors know that if this company can comprehensively combine these areas as well as its security wing to work cohesively in the emerging Internet Of Things market (IoT), then this company will have a strategic competitive advantage. Blackberry’s pivot from hardware to software may have been well timed but I would still recommend caution. Here are three reasons to back up my case.

    Thursday ended in the red for most major benchmarks on Wall Street, with the Dow trading down by triple digits at times before climbing back toward the close. After having bounced back sharply in recent days, stocks seemed to lose upward momentum, and interest rate fears returned to the market. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond once again moved above the 2.9% mark, and shorter-term Treasurys had yields reach levels they haven’t seen in years. Yet even though the overall market was ready to take a break, some companies still enjoyed good news that lifted their shares. Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK), Snap-on (NYSE:SNA), and Rigel Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:RIGL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
