Top Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019: TransEnterix, Inc.(TRXC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Feroldi]

    In response to reporting first-quarter results, shares of TransEnterix (NYSEMKT:TRXC), a commercial-stage company focused on robotic surgery, jumped 18% as of 11:05 a.m. EDT on Wednesday.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Near the end of August, Intuitive Surgical got a second wind for no obvious reason. Smaller rival TransEnterix (NYSEMKT:TRXC) posted an even larger gain in the second half of last month, again for no better reason than a bounce back from the preceding couple of weeks of negative market action.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market is a market of individual stocks, though, and even with major benchmarks having stalled, some companies are enjoying unparalleled success. In particular, TransEnterix (NYSEMKT:TRXC), BeiGene (NASDAQ:BGNE), and Legacy Resources LP (NASDAQ:LGCY) have all quadrupled in price in just a single year, and investors who are just finding out about them want to know if there are further gains in their futures. There aren’t any sure things in investing, but the prospects that all three of these companies have could fuel additional advances if things go right for them.

Top Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019: Sociedad Quimica y Minera S.A.(SQM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile S.A. (NYSE: SQM) was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citigroup. Its shares were indicated down 1.6% at $38.35 on Tuesday morning.

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    China’s Tianqi Lithium Corp. has struck a deal to buy a 24% stake in Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE:SQM), or SQM, for $4.07 billion, the companies involved said on Thursday. 

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, Reuters reported that China’s Tianqi Lithium Corp is looking to raise up to $1 billion in a Hong Kong stock market flotation after filing a draft prospectus with the exchange. Based in China’s province of Sichuan, Tianqi Lithium Corp is the world’s second-largest lithium producer by sales and is building the world’s biggest lithium processor in Western Australia. In May, the Company announced a blockbuster $4.1 billion deal to buy a 24% stake in Chile’s Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM), the world’s No.2 lithium miner, with the majority of future listing proceeds to be used for refinancing this deal (note that the sale has not yet been approved by Chile’s antitrust regulator).

Top Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019: Southern Company (SO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    QCI Asset Management Inc. NY trimmed its stake in Southern (NYSE:SO) by 91.8% in the first quarter, according to its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The firm owned 16,421 shares of the utilities provider’s stock after selling 182,905 shares during the quarter. QCI Asset Management Inc. NY’s holdings in Southern were worth $733,000 as of its most recent SEC filing.

    Southern Company (NYSE: SO)
    An old go-to “widows and orphans” utility stock, Southern Company shares are down 18% from their 52-week high. The fear is that rising rates equal higher borrowing costs, resulting in compressed margins posing a clear and present danger to the stock’s enviable 5.3% dividend yield.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    To get things off on the right foot, it’s important to note that income-focused investors looking to utility investments for their relatively high dividend yields will probably be disappointed with NextEra’s 2.6% yield. You can get roughly two percentage points more from industry giants like The Southern Company (NYSE:SO), Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK), and Dominion Energy (NYSE:D).

    And while it’s imperative that you don’t risk money you’re going to count on in the next several years in investments that can quickly lose a lot of value and be very slow to — if ever — recover, high-quality dividend stocks can still serve an important part in providing the best mix of income for today and long-term capital appreciation for down the road. To help you find the best dividend stocks for your retirement, three Motley Fool investors did some research and came back with Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), Southern Co. (NYSE:SO), and Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE:KMI).

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The Southern Co. (NYSE: SO) traded down about 2.9% Wednesday and posted a new 52-week low of $45.81 after closing Tuesday at $47.20. The 52-week high is $53.51. Volume was about 5.5 million, about 15% above the daily average of around 4.8 million shares. The company had no specific news Wednesday.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Tupperware Brands’ (NYSE:TUP) stock has tumbled more than 40% since last July on a consistent flow of negative news. Most recently, TUP revised its first-quarter earnings forecast down by 14% to $0.87-0.92 from a previous range of $1.01-1.06. Customer service, supply chain, and tax issues were the main reasons for the revision. With that being said, I see the stock as being significantly undervalued for the following reasons:

Free cash flow is expected to rebound to $170-180 million in 2018, an increase of approximately $30 million over 2017. Free cash flow should further rebound in future years as TUP completes its reengineering program. This yields 51% upside potential in a conservative discounted cash flow model. TUP is performing well in Emerging Markets, especially China and Brazil, which could push TUP to a growth trajectory in the coming years. The company currently has a dividend yield of 6.52%, which is supported by free cash flow. Based on TUP’s 2018 free cash flow projection, this should equal dividend coverage of approximately 80%. It has attractive fundamental valuations including a Forward P/E of 8.51x and a PEG of 0.73x. Tupperware Brands’ Operations

Driving TUP’s net loss for 2017 was a number of non-recurring expenses:

Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

An old trader once told me, “Trading is the hardest easy money you’ll ever make.” 

In theory, trading is easy enough — all you have to do is buy low and sell high, right? After all, there are thousands of books claiming to have all the information we’ll ever need.

In practice, however, trading is among the most difficult activities in the financial world. Despite the availability of a wealth of information, few do it well.

In fact, all that accessible information actually makes it harder to trade successfully. 

Think about that for a moment. 

If you could really win in the markets by simply buying stocks with low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios, then we would all be successful. As an old trader also once told me, “To know what everyone knows is to know nothing.” If everyone has the same tools, it’s difficult to use them to gain an advantage over everyone else.

The secret to beating the market — and your fellow investors — is to use little-known indicators, which act like secret weapons for trading.

    Given the need for food and energy in order to support booming population growth in emerging markets, there’ll be a need for significant investment in sustainable water solutions. It’s a compelling long-term investment case, and I think Danaher Corporation (NYSE:DHR), Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL) and Pentair plc (NYSE:PNR) are stocks well-placed to play the investment theme. One of the interesting things about water is that there’s no lack of it or difficulty in finding it; the problem is ensuring its quality (for both potable water and wastewater) and transporting it to the right places. This means there’s likely to be good long-term demand for companies serving the market.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Back in my early 20s, when I was broke and in student-loan and credit-card debt, I started to be able to save a little money. Practically microscopic amounts but it was something.

I was so terrified of losing even those few dollars that I thought I needed to make them as safe as possible. So instead of putting them into vehicles that might actually make me some money, I put my funds into a savings account not even a high-yield savings account and once I started to save slightly more, into the safest mutual fund I could find, an intermediate bond fund.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Ultra Petroleum Corp.(UPL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

  • [By STOCKPICKR]

    As energy commodity prices have sold off in recent months, so too have the E&P stocks that pull those resources out of the ground. And Ultra Petroleum (UPL) has been no exception. The good news is that you don’t need to be an expert technical trader to figure out why this stock looks toxic here — the setup in shares of Ultra Petroleum is about as simple as they get.

    UPL is bouncing its way lower in a textbook downtrending channel, a price setup that’s formed by a pair of parallel trendlines that have kept UPL range-bound since April. The price channel in UPL identifies the high-probability range for shares to stay within, and so, with shares pressing up against resistance for the eighth time since this price channel kicked off, it makes sense to be a seller on the next bounce lower.

    An ETF is a fund that tracks indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. ETFs basically let you trade an entire sector instead of having to pick and choose specific stocks to trade within a sector. ETFs are also a great way for you to hedge against rising interest rates. When it comes to equities, a good ETF to monitor is the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSE Arca: DIA). For bonds, the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NYSE Arca: TLT) is a good way to gauge the bullishness or bearishness of the overall bond market.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2018

Stocks finished the week lower as oil prices fell and the Federal Reserve looks set to raise interest rates next week.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

The S&P 500 fell 0.4% this week after rising 0.3% to2,372.60 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.5% this week after advancing44.79 points, or 0.2%, to20,902.98 today. The Nasdaq Composite dipped 0.2% this week after gaining 0.4% to5,861.73 today.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite snapped six-week winning streaks, while the Dow ended a four-week winning streak.

Wellington Shields’ Frank Gretz notes that the “market is supposed to be anticipatory.” He explains:

Opinions follow price memories do as well. If higher prices alone were not enough, the news always seems to improve as prices move higher. After all, the media always needs to explain the higher prices, and the good therefore becomes the emphasis. For example, theres little talk of the all-but-certain pending rate hike. Since the election the market has had a remarkable run, one built more on policy hope than policy reality. This complaint is met with the retort that it has only been 50 days, or whatever. Fair enough, but the point remains. Then, too, the market is supposed to do this, its supposed to be anticipatory. Investors are getting this, and hence, what has been persistent strength. Interestingly, investors will begin to believe they always got it no one was really worried about a possible trade war, and so on. The psychologist Baruch Fischhoff called this creeping determinism, the idea that unexpected events turn into the expected. In other words, we will remember being more bullish in November than we were.
