Top 10 Stocks To Watch Right Now: Carnival Corporation(CUK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Tuesday was a calm day on Wall Street, with several major benchmarks posting modest gains while others stayed closer to the unchanged mark. Market participants generally seemed ready to take a pause in trends over the past several days, as crude oil prices bounced back from their recent drop to climb above $65 per barrel while interest rates eased slightly lower. Yet despite a resilient market that largely avoided most downward pressure, some individual stocks weren’t as lucky. Carnival (NYSE:CCL) (NYSE:CUK), Tarena International (NASDAQ:TEDU), and Genesco (NYSE:GCO) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

We will contrast the two companies based on the strength of their risk, analyst recommendations, earnings, valuation, institutional ownership, dividends and profitability.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch Right Now: Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (IIPR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Marijuana stocks have become exceedingly popular, but not everyone feels comfortable investing directly in the companies that produce and grow cannabis. Instead, some prefer to look at the companies that are in the business of helping marijuana producers maximize their growth business. Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG) provides fertilizers and equipment that individual and commercial operations can use to boost cannabis production, while Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) is a real estate investment trust designed to help cannabis companies find the space they need while meeting all the regulatory requirements surrounding marijuana production facilities.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Wednesday morning, the real estate shares surged 0.67 percent. Meanwhile, top gainers in the sector included Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (NYSE: IIPR), up 5 percent, and Armada Hoffler Properties, Inc. (NYSE: AHH) up 3 percent.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Last but not least, marijuana-based real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) actually went the initial public offering route on the NYSE all the way back on Dec. 1, 2016. That makes it the most tenured of all pure-play pot stocks on the NYSE.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    As the industry gains validity, certain marijuana stocks are primed to take advantage. One such company is marijuana real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR).

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Last but not least, there’s marijuana-based real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR).

    An REIT is a company that acquires real estate assets in a particular industry, then leases those assets out for an extended period of time, earning revenue via rental increases amid a relatively fixed-cost model. As for Industrial Innovative Properties, it now has more than a dozen medical marijuana-growing properties in the U.S., each of which was initially leased out for between 15 and 20 years. Annual rental inflation hikes are passed along with each of these lease deals, as well as a 1.5% management fee. Or in other words, it should easily be able to stay ahead of the inflationary curve.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    If you want exposure to the fast-paced marijuana industry without the ups and downs that could come with harvesting the plant, small-cap real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) could be a winner.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch Right Now: Markel Corporation(MKL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jordan Wathen, Matthew Frankel, CFP, and Dan Caplinger]

    Below, three Motley Fool contributors make the case for three different insurers with very different business models: Markel (NYSE:MKL), Chubb (NYSE:CB), and First American Financial (NYSE:FAF).

  • [By Motley Fool Staff and Michael Douglass]

    Douglass: Right. I think that’s one of the key things to keep in mind here as a difference between this and a Markel (NYSE:MKL) or a Berkshire. This is a company that really isn’t necessarily trying to find the next great investments that are going to beat the market. What they’re mostly looking to do is invest in sectors through ETFs.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Media coverage about Markel (NYSE:MKL) has trended somewhat positive this week, according to Accern. Accern rates the sentiment of media coverage by monitoring more than twenty million news and blog sources in real-time. Accern ranks coverage of public companies on a scale of -1 to 1, with scores closest to one being the most favorable. Markel earned a media sentiment score of 0.12 on Accern’s scale. Accern also assigned news articles about the insurance provider an impact score of 45.7080067088456 out of 100, indicating that recent media coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an effect on the company’s share price in the immediate future.

Best Bank Stocks To Own For 2018

Uber Technologies Inc. has been valued at $48 billion after Softbank Group Corp. (OTCMKTS:SFTBF) has completed its purchase of 20% of the ride-hailing company.

A previous private funding round said the company was worth $68 billion, making this new round a “down round.” Anyone who bought shares at the $68 billion valuation — and then sold to Softbank — took a loss.

Since most of those exiting were early investors, however, they have taken huge profits. Founder and former-CEO Travis Kalanick sold 29% of his personal stake to Softbank and is now a billionaire. Menlo Ventures, First Round Capital and Benchmark Capital were also among the early backers to take profits. 

Kalanick ran Uber from a startup to a dominant player in the new world of app-based ride-hailing, which has been putting taxi services out of business around the world. But the company now faces challenges from well-heeled competitors and governments bent on regulating or even banning it.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2018: AVG Technologies N.V.(AVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Igor Novgorodtsev]

    InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.
