Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

Value investing is easily one of the most popular ways to find great stocks in any market environment. After all, who wouldn’t want to find stocks that are either flying under the radar and are compelling buys, or offer up tantalizing discounts when compared to fair value?

One way to find these companies is by looking at several key metrics and financial ratios, many of which are crucial in the value stock selection process. Let’s put KNOT Offshore Partners LP (KNOP Quick QuoteKNOP ) stock into this equation and find out if it is a good choice for value-oriented investors right now, or if investors subscribing to this methodology should look elsewhere for top picks:

PE Ratio

A key metric that value investors always look at is the Price to Earnings Ratio, or PE for short. This shows us how much investors are willing to pay for each dollar of earnings in a given stock, and is easily one of the most popular financial ratios in the world. The best use of the PE ratio is to compare the stock’s current PE ratio with: a) where this ratio has been in the past; b) how it compares to the average for the industry/sector; and c) how it compares to the market as a whole.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market was quiet on Wednesday, with different benchmarks reacting to a variety of news events. The release of minutes from the Federal Reserve’s most recent monetary policy meeting generally confirmed what most investors had believed about the central bank’s future course of action, and that helped send the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500modestly higher. Yet weakness in key technology stocks caused the Nasdaq Composite to lag its peers. Several stocks posted strong advances, and Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN), Kandi Technologies Group (NASDAQ:KNDI), and Magellan Health (NASDAQ:MGLN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Jason Hall, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Matt DiLallo(Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Overall, earnings at both Williams and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) were down slightly versus the year-ago period due to asset sales, while cash flow modestly increased thanks to lower interest expenses.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Simpler organizational structures could yield significant benefits for individual investors. In addition to being easier to follow and understand, it will make it easier than ever to own some of the most important pieces of energy infrastructure in the United States. The proposed merger between Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and Williams Partners LP (NYSE:WPZ) is a great example, as it owns some of the best natural gas infrastructure in the United States. Here’s why investors should be bullish on the multi-billion dollar merger.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Natural gas pipeline giant Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) reported mixed second-quarter results after the close Wednesday. Earnings declined fractionally due to asset sales and some higher costs. Cash flow, on the other hand, moved slightly higher thanks in part to lower interest expenses as a result of debt reduction. However, while both numbers underwhelmed in Q2, they should head much higher in the coming year because Williams has several expansion projects under way that should boost its bottom line.

Top 10 Penny Stocks To Invest In Right Now

After touching all-time highs of $64,800, Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD) witnessed a sharp correction. It briefly traded below $30,000 before making a gradual recovery. However, the positive momentum seems to be gaining traction. Bitcoin is now trading near $50,000 levels. As this price rises, investors may see multi-fold returns in crypto-related Reddit penny stocks.

In the last rally for Bitcoin, Marathon Digital (NASDAQ:MARA) skyrocketed from lows of $1.48 to a high of $57.75. Similarly, Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ:RIOT) had a 52-week range of $2.35 and $79.50. I will not be surprised if more Reddit penny stocks skyrocket as Bitcoin surges.

It’s also important to discuss the reasons behind the renewed rally in Bitcoin. First and foremost, the adoption of cryptocurrencies is increasing at a stellar pace. Globally, the number of cryptocurrency users has doubled year to date to more than 200 million. Furthermore, it’s likely that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) will again start accepting Bitcoin as a payment method.

Good things come to those who wait… The waiting is the hardest part… Do not open till Xmas…

Today’s penny stock pick is the perfect example – and I’ll tell you why in a second.

By now, you know I’m super bullish on the clean energy stocks, along with fellow travelers in “clean tech,” like the battery industry, lithium and rare earths, electric vehicles, and so on.

When I say “bullish,” I mean there are dozens and dozens of stocks in this space that I watch on a regular basis – I’ve recommended many of them right here.

    Another no-brainer acquisition that would make sense for Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway is satellite radio operator Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). It’s worth pointing out that Berkshire Hathaway already owns 137.92 million shares of Sirius XM, or about 2.9% of all outstanding shares.

Best Penny Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Last weekend, Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) prevailed over Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOX) (NASDAQ:FOXA) in a blind auction to buy European pay-TV and media giant Sky. Fox, of course, has already agreed to sell itself to The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) for $71 billion, so Disney was pulling the strings here.

Now Disney has a choice between keeping Fox’s existing 39% stake in Sky and remaining as a minority shareholder or selling its shares to Comcast. Given the massive premium the latter has offered for the business, Disney should gladly take Comcast’s cash and walk away.

Comcast is paying a pretty penny

The Sky saga began in December 2016, when Fox offered 10.75 British pounds per share to acquire the 61% of the company it did not already own. This represented a healthy 40% premium to Sky’s pre-offer share price and valued Sky at 11.4 times its fiscal 2016 adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA), including debt.

However, once Comcast got involved, a bidding war erupted. Comcast’s winning bid was 17.28 pounds per share — 61% higher than Fox’s initial offer.

Best Penny Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Transocean Inc.(RIG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jason Hall]

    On June 27, shares of Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL), Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc (NYSE:DO), and Ensco PLC (NYSE:ESV) traded up more than 10% at various points. And while they’ve cooled off a bit — up 9.9%, 10.3%, and 8.9%, respectively, at recent prices — they continue to march toward today’s close with big gains. And while not quite as much as the three aforementioned companies, shares of Transocean LTD (NYSE:RIG) and Noble Corporation PLC (NYSE:NE) are showing big days as well, up 6.4% and 7.2% in late-afternoon trading. 

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Frankly, today’s big drop shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone. The company told us many months ago that common equity investors would only retain 2% — at most — of the company when it completed its bankruptcy proceedings, yet investors continued to pay a price for its stock that, at one point, would have made Seadrill worth nearly as much as competitors Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), and Noble Corporation (NYSE:NE) combined. But a relatively steady decline in the share price, combined with today’s big drop, seems to be finally putting Seadrill more in line with its peers.
