Best Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

When I initiated coverage on Xerox (NYSE:XRX), I concluded that the stock wasn’t dead, and in January, I opined the name was also not “dead money.” That is important to reiterate. But this once stellar blue chip has certainly fallen from grace, big time. I then told you that the company was “not dead yet.” But friends, are we approaching the death of Xerox? I mean, it has been struggling for a long time. I suggested on nice dips you could buy simply for the yield and collect the dividend, but growth was nowhere to be found. I said had in my prior work numerous times that we needed to see some improvement in the underlying metrics before I could get behind the name. Well, in the past three months, the stock has moved sideways to higher, but will there be sustained momentum? That is tough to tell, but the name has been downgraded and the most recent earnings were not great.

The truth is that performance has been pitiful of late and is the reason shares have declined. Well here, Q3 shows that there are still declining revenues. Revenue as a whole came in at $4.21 billion, and this messed estimates by $100 million. However, this was also down 5.4% year over year, continuing a string of declining quarters. In addition the degree of declining revenues seems to be picking up and this is real bad news. Of course, as I have discussed in-depth in other articles, the strong dollar has hurt companies with international businesses.

    Today, Bill offers our readers a few of his favorites as Trump meets with Kim Jong Un. Here’s how to cash in regardless of how this summit turns out in the long run.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Last night, President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. This was the first meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. Following the agreement, analysts noted that the document signed by both parties included no concrete details for achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. Trump responded to criticism by saying he is fully confident that the Korean dictatorship will follow through. A U.S. district court will rule on whether to approve an $85 billion merger between AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX).

(NYSE: DIS) for media giant Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (NYSE: FOXA). The Fed Open Market Committee kicks off its June meeting today. The U.S. central bank is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in 2018. On Wednesday, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will likely announce a hike of 0.25% to the benchmark rate to 2%. This would also mark the seventh hike since December 2015. Markets will be looking for clues during Powell’s conference to determine how many additional times the Fed plans to raise interest rates during the final six months of the year.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) appears to be beefing up the sonic experience of its Echo line of digital assistants and smart speakers, giving Sonos (NASDAQ:SONO) and its investors something else to worry about. The Verge is reporting that Amazon has leaked a new subwoofer on its U.K. website, giving its Echo products greater versatility as a stereo or home theater appliance. 

The new Echo Sub can be wirelessly paired up with one or two Echo devices to enhance the audio quality of streams with a deep bass sound. Echo Sub is priced at 75 pounds, translating to a price point of less than $100. Sonos Sub — its own wireless subwoofer — retails for $699. Sonos Sub is larger, decoratively stylish, and likely superior when it comes to specs, but it’s hard to argue that Amazon filling a niche with a product that feeds its Alexa-propelled ecosystem at another ridiculously low price point won’t be bad news for Sonos.

Top Stocks To Own For 2019

By Scott Tzu

It was reported yesterday that Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) just disclosed yet another data breach dating back to 2014 that it had not yet previously disclosed. We believe this data breach, coupled with the last data breach that the company announced, produces more risk for the Yahoo/Verizon (NYSE:VZ) deal and that under current circumstances, there is really no need to own Yahoo going forward.

The comments we received when we last wrote a critical article about Yahoo’s data breach in September were mostly all critical. In an article that we wrote in September, we suggested that the disclosure of a separate Yahoo data breach from the one that was disclosed yesterday may derail or alter Verizon’s bid for the company.

Then, yesterday, another data breach was announced. Reuters reported,

Yahoo Inc warned on Wednesday that it had uncovered yet another massive cyber attack, saying data from more than 1 billion user accounts was compromised in August 2013, making it the largest breach in history.

On June 29, 2016, we published the article “Tesla shares will make all-time highs boosted by SolarCity”, after Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) shares had dropped to an intra-day low of $187.87 on June 27, 2016. We followed up with another article on July 29, 2016, “Tesla Stock Better Positioned For New All-Time Highs”, after Tesla shares had rebounded to around $234. In both instances, we received substantial skepticism, and yet, Tesla shares have indeed registered new highs, reaching an intra-day high of $313.73 on April 10, 2017, an appreciation of 67% since June 27 and 34.1% since July 29; meanwhile, as of Friday April 14, Tesla shares closed at 304. Once again, despite such healthy appreciation, we expect Tesla shares to continue to register new highs into the future, driven by a realization that Tesla is not only a car company, but a technology, innovation and design company that produces cachet products and is capable of execution.

HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider ofTaser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-ledpayroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE)– The company’s push to the cloud is drivingdouble-digitgains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — Asoftware-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in severalniche markets. BlackLine (NASDAQ: BL) — A software company that is attempting to bring the accounting process into the 21st century.

    All seven of these businesses are poised to deliver double-digit organic revenue and profit growth over the next five years. That’s a prospect I find quite enticing, and I think the odds are very favorable that they’ll outperform Apple as a group from here.

Best Heal Care Stocks To Own For 2019: Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    The production issue for batteries may improve with added input from partner Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY). They currently produce battery cells for Tesla in Nevada, and in Japan. At their recent earnings call CEO Kazuhiro Tsuga said they were looking at manufacturing battery cells at a new plant in China in conjunction with Tesla. They also predicted their automation energy business profit would double this year. This can be seen as a vote of confidence in Tesla and a bullish sign for Tesla stock. However, according to reports in the Nikkei Asian Review, there is as yet no definite commitment for a joint venture in China. Panasonic is the world’s largest battery supplier for EV’s.

    CBAK is in a very competitive industry, as well as being small relative to its competitors. Among the Company’s competitors are giants like Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), but overall it faces competition from Japan, Korea, and China. Although CBAK states that “we are able to leverage our low-cost advantage to compete favorably with our competitors”, it is hard to see that being the reality, especially when looking at the above gross margins. Still, the Company may enjoy lower labor costs, since it sources labor locally and apparently it has “higher consistency and safety in product quality, which enables us to compete favorably with local competitors”. But given the greater resources of at least some of its competitors and the constantly evolving dynamics of the industry, competition is surely a risk factor to consider.

  • [By ]

    However, Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) announced this week that it was happy to consider further investment in the Nevada facility. A similar move in China is not unlikely. Tesla expects to triple its energy storage business this year but its problem has been getting supply to meet the demand. Panasonic’s announcement is probably connected to a very substantial energy storage contract win just announced by the company.
