    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The U.S. markets are preparing for the eighth interest rate hike since 2015, and the Federal Reserve may not be done yet. Markets are weighing the possibility that the Fed may raise rates one more time this year (in December). The hikes come as the Fed is attempting to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. When Powell speaks this afternoon, expect a few questions about the impact of the trade war between the United States and China. Reporters will also likely want to know about geopolitical risks to the U.S. economy and how they might affect growth in a higher-interest-rate environment. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump gave a speech before the United Nations General Assembly. During his talk, Trump praised the U.S. economy and defended his administration’s actions this year on trade. Trump said that the United States will no longer endure “abuse” from other trade partners. The U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also said Tuesday that the U.S. is prepared to proceed on a new trade deal with Mexico without the participation of Canada. Oil prices are in focus after President Trump called out OPEC members before the U.N. on Tuesday. During his talk, Trump accused OPEC and non-OPEC participants in collusion efforts on production and prices of ripping off the rest of the world.

Top Growth Stocks To Invest In 2019

When it comes to investing, including some boring, defensive stocks in your portfolio is a good thing. This is because investors often forget that markets go both up and down. The market is in a positive mood lately, which is exactly why you will want to consider this trio of boring utility stocks. Here’s why American Water Works, Inc. (NYSE:AWK), Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK), and Dominion Energy, Inc. (NYSE:D) are all defensive stocks you might want to consider adding to your portfolio today.

Solid dividend growth from an unexpected corner of the market

For investors who favor dividend growth, American Water Works is a good name to consider. That’s because it typically gives investors a smooth ride. American Water Works’ beta, a measure of relative volatility, is an ultra-low 0.05. That suggests it’s 95% less volatile than the broader market. It’s easily the most “boring” stock of this trio if you use beta as the yardstick.

The yield is a modest 2.1%, a little higher than the broader market. However, over the past decade, the company has increased its dividend at roughly 10% annually — more than three times the historical growth rate of inflation. Ten percent is the target for the utility going forward, as well. It’s increased its dividend annually for 11 consecutive years, essentially every year since it came public.   

Top Growth Stocks To Invest In 2019: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Scale matters in the government IT business, as larger companies are better able to manage the increasingly large and complex systems customers demand, and a broader cost basis helps in putting together low-cost, competitive bids. In recent years, a wave of mergers and acquisitions has left a clear top two in the market. Industry leader Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) in 2016 bought the IT business of Lockheed Martin, while General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) vaulted to No. 2 earlier this year via its acquisition of CSRA.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) stock has had an odd couple of years, gaining more than 17% in 2017 but still lagging most of its defense rivals. Interest in defense stocks, including General Dynamics, has ebbed in recent months, but the company still trades at a discount to some of its chief rivals.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Five years ago, General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) was struck by disaster.

    Years of acquisitions in the IT space, designed to turn the defense giant best known for its battle tanks and nuclear submarines into a cybersecurity specialist, had failed to produce significant profit growth. Instead, realizing that it had overpaid for its new subsidiaries, General D acknowledged its mistake, took a $2.9 billion charge to earnings, fired its IT division head (or allowed him to retire “to pursue new professional opportunities”), and reported only its second full-year net loss in the last 30 years.

    The combination of pipeline bottlenecks is now dragging down the price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil to levels well below that of Brent crude. The difference between the two is called the Brent-WTI spread — and it’s now at levels last witnessed in 2015, and never before 2011. This single metric also explains why oil refinery stocks such as Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC), Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX), and Delek US Holdings (NYSE:DK) are up by as much as 51% this year.

    There has been a slew of merger & acquisition activity in the refining industry as of late as companies look to add economy of scale. The rate of consolidation went into warp speed last week when Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC) and Andeavor (NYSE:ANDV) announced their $23 billion merger deal. HollyFrontier isn’t a big fish in this industry, but it does have a reputation for making value-adding acquisitions. So of course, an analyst asked CEO George Damiris on the company’s conference call for his view of the M&A market and what we might expect from HollyFrontier. Here’s his response:

Hot High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: NVR Inc.(NVR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    For a business that is supposed to be relatively seasonal and cyclical, NVR (NYSE:NVR) has been enjoying an impressive run of growth. Not only did the company deliver impressive top- and bottom-line expansion, but it also showed positive trends on just about every operating metric. If there was one thing to critique, it’s how management is dividing up the benefits of these boom times.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Priestley:Yeah,absolutely. The first stock that you mentioned was NVR (NYSE:NVR). They focus on building luxury homes in Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania,and Virginia. They have three distinct brands:Ryan Homes, NV Homes and Heartland Homes. They’reactually the most expensive, I think, of the stocks that we’re going to talk about today. Their P/E is at 24X. But they’re also the biggest, and the past 12 months have seen the stock come up almost 50%. So, great pick! What exactly attracted you to NVR?

  • [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.

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    Next week is big for housing numbers. March existing home sales figures are scheduled for  Monday and new home sales for March along with the February S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index on Tuesday. As for homebuilders, Pulte Group, Inc. (NYSE: PHM) is scheduled to report  Q1 results Tuesday, and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE: DHI) is scheduled to report fiscal Q2 numbers on Thursday. The industry already has seen strong Q1 results from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN), and housing starts and building permits in March rose more than expected. These results, as well as those and the economic data from next week could provide clues for the industry going forward. After NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR) reports results this morning, Meritage Homes Corp. (NYSE: MTH) releases its Q1 results April 25. We’ll have to wait until next month for some of the other homebuilders, as well as from home improvement companies Home Depot, Inc. (NYSE: HD) and Lowe’s Companies Inc (NYSE: LOW), before we get a more complete snapshot of the housing market.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now

Stocks couldnt shake off early losses and all three major indexes ended lower on Thursday.

Bloomberg News

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 210.79 points, or 1.17%, to 17830.76. The S&P 500 Index fell 19.34 points, or 0.92%, to 2075.81. The Nasdaq slid 57.85 points, or 1.19%, to 4805.29.

Blue chips were dragged down by Apple(AAPL): Just days after its disappointing earnings, billionaire Carl Icahn said he no longer has a stake in the stock.

From a data standpoint, First quarter gross domestic product grew 0.5%, below economists expectations, overshadowing an upbeat jobs report that saw unemployment fall to a four-decade low.

Stifels Lindsey Piegza writes that this could push out any interest rate hikes:

From a policy standpoint, should the U.S. economy post meaningful improvement between now and June, assuming the Feds concerns surrounding international risks are not reignited, policy makers appear well positioned to announce the second rate hike in less than two months time. Of course, following this mornings disappointing GDP report, its difficult to imagine a marked improvement in the economy over the next two months. More likely, the combination of stagnant economic conditions, a still-restrained consumer, and ongoing concerns regarding risks of contagion from developments abroad whether directly identified in the statement or not will make it increasingly difficult for the Fed to raise rates once in the remaining nine months of 2016, if at all.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)also has cashed in on the improvement in oil prices. Shares of the U.S. oil company are up more than 80% over the past year — making it one of the best-performing oil stocks of 2018– due to the impact higher oil prices are having on its cash flow. Like EOG, Marathon Oil set its budget to run on $50 oil, which has it on pace to produce $500 million in free cash at $60 a barrel and even more at current prices.

  • [By ]

    Presto, West Texas Intermediate crude rose 3% to $71.18, the highest since December 2014, boosting shares of oil companies including Occidental (OXY) , which gained 4.8%, Marathon (MRO) , up 3.8%, and Apache (APA) , which gained 2.5%. Spot gasoline also rose 2.7% to $2.17 a gallon, boding ill for the summer driving season in the U.S. and potentially eroding any gains middle-class Americans received from the Trump tax cuts.

    The company’s Powder River Basinassets also generated strong drilling results, with several wells topping 1,000 BOE/D. Finally, while the company did drill four wells in the Bakken, it has deferred completing them until later this year. That program is one to keep an eye on given the results Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) delivered last quarter, when it completed record-setting wells in the Three Forks and Middle Bakken formations.

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) gapped down before the market opened on Thursday . The stock had previously closed at $22.09, but opened at $21.63. Marathon Oil shares last traded at $21.47, with a volume of 12430818 shares traded.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), likewise, said it would stick with its $2.3 billion drilling budget, which is enough money to grow oil and gas production in the U.S. by 25% to 30% versus last year. Because of that capital discipline, Marathon is on pace to produce more than $500 million in excess cash this year, and that’s assuming crude averages $60 a barrel.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)could outperform in that scenario.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.

    Some already had their autonomous car bets made with positions in both Tesla and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) surmising those will be the big winners. They have good company. Trip Chowdhry of Global Equities Research summed up his thesis for autonomous transportation and transportation in general going forward as Winners: Tesla, Nvidia; and Losers: Mobileye (NYSE:MBLY) and all traditional automakers. All traditional automakers? That’s basically every automaker on the planet besides Tesla and maybe Fisker and BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY), that’s a lot of losers. Trip is a talented analyst. I’ve followed him for many years (see his ranking on TipRanks here). Even for him, that’s a pretty bold statement. It got me thinking, is Tesla’s lead in the race for autonomous cars so great that the race is effectively over? I wanted to find out if I was using traditional methodologies too much, overthinking my picks and missing out on the bigger winner, Tesla.

    Many talented authors have posted about publicly listed equities trading at or near asset value with significant tax attributes, namely Net Operating Losses (NOLs), and the inherent asymmetry when an activist or new management makes a break from money losing operations to pursue transformative acquisitions. Several of the activists or lead investors, such as Becker Drapkin (EMKR, CNSI, SDOI) or Sam Zell’s Equity Group Investments (PARR and RELY), have long track records of successfully repurposing tax attribute rich companies via creative financing and transformative acquisitions. There are also some newer entrants into the space, such as KKR (OTCQB:WMIH) and Carlson Capital (OTCQB:SWKH).
