Top 10 Financial Stocks To Watch For 2019: Credit Suisse Group(CS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

The move comes after a calamitous year for GE, which saw the company become the worst-performing Dow component of 2017.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

Multi-Color (LABL) is making a bad habit of posting noisy quarterly results that lead to substantial volatility in the share price. The problems are largely margin-related and have reached a level where they’re overriding surprisingly strong organic growth trends in the business, and it is getting harder to believe this issue is going to resolve as the company has the not inconsiderable job of integrating a major acquisition that has a lot of different moving parts.

I had mixed feelings about the Constantia deal when it was announced and I still do – while expanding the business in Europe makes sense, I have concerns about the greater exposure to lower-margin, more commodity-like business. I would have preferred to see Multi-Color acquire more capabilities in higher-margin businesses like healthcare, but that could still come.

The “operating inefficiencies” cited by management and the more erratic margin performance has widened my fair value range on the shares, but I do believe the shares are still undervalued. Multi-Color really needs to post a few good, boring quarters and restore confidence that this combination is a real value-creating event for shareholders.

    Contrary to what many believe, it’s easier to find stocks to invest in when you’re in your 60s. That’s because your choices narrow down significantly as you filter out young, aggressive companies that typically carry higher risk. As you near retirement, you need a portfolio choc-a-block with mature, established businesses that have a visible growth path and preferably offer solid dividends to supplement your income. Three interesting stocks that fit the bill are American States Water (NYSE:AWR), A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS), and Realty Income (NYSE:O).
