Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Black Friday conjures up dreams of scoring flat-screen TVs, video games, jewelry and winter clothing for super-low prices.

But after the gobble gobble, think about some vroom vroom.

The day after Thanksgiving is the best day to buy a used car, according to iSeeCars.com, which found 33.1% more deals that day than on the average day. No. 2 on the list was Veterans Day (32.5%), followed by Thanksgiving (30.6%), Columbus Day (30.5%) and Martin Luther King Jr. Day (29.4%). The worst times to buy a used car are July 4 and Mother’s Day, both with about 28% fewer deals.

The website, which aggregates used-car for-sale listings, studied data from 40 million-plus used-car sales from 2013 to 2015.

“What you’re seeing is dealers and car sellers taking advantage of people out shopping,” Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.com, told the Free Press. “They want to buy something. They have a glut of inventory they need to move out. A lot of used cars are being traded in. They have to move those, too. Why not take advantage?”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Leo Sun]

    In the past, the bears often claimed that rival delivery services from Uber, DoorDash, Postmates, Square (NYSE: SQ), and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) would throttle Grubhub’s growth. However, research firm Second Measure claims that GrubHub still controls 50% of the U.S. food delivery market (as of March 2018).

    One of the things Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner stresses when looking for good investments is optionality: Does the company have many possible futures that will allow it to evolve? What makes PayPal’s positioning unique in the payment processing industry is how it might be able to leverage its 237 million-strong active user base to capture these merchants’ business. While much is made of Square’s (NYSE:SQ) Cash App popularity — and rightly so! — its 7 million user base represents just a tiny fraction of PayPal’s immense scale. At least Square has Cash App, though; other payment processing companies, such as Worldpay and Global Payments, have nothing that even comes close to PayPal’s digital offerings.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: Brookfield Renewable Powerr Fund(BEP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Scott Levine]

    Instead of a yieldco perhaps a master limited partnership like Brookfield Renewable Partners LP (NYSE:BEP). which also secures PPAs will pique investors’ interests. With 876 generating facilities, including hydroelectric, wind, solar, and storage, Brookfield Renewable Partners has a portfolio of projects that represents 17,400 MW of installed capacity. Looking ahead, the company targets annual investments of $600 million to $700 million in high-quality assets, which will provide 12% to 15% returns on investment. Similar to Pattern Energy, Brookfield returned more than 90% of its CAFD to shareholders in 2017; however, unlike Pattern Energy, Brookfield Renewable Partners identifies a long-term payout ratio of 70% from its CAFD. Of greater appeal to conservative investors may be the fact that the company maintains an investment-grade balance sheet based on credit ratings from both Standard & Poor’s and DBRS.

    While there is no 100% accurate way to predict whether a stock will be able to pay dividends forever, there are some stocks that are certainly more likely to than others. Here’s why our contributors think investors who want a lifelong stream of dividend income should consider real-estate investment trust Realty Income (NYSE:O) and energy plays Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP) and Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP).

    Making the most of dividends in retirement means picking great dividend stocks that will be able to provide a steady stream of income for years to come, and it’s helpful if said stocks pay a high yield today. So we asked three Motley Fool investors to each highlight a stock they think is a perfect fit in a retirement portfolio. Here’s why they picked Walmart (NYSE:WMT), Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP), and Copa Holdings (NYSE:CPA).

    Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE: BEP) and NRG Yield Inc Class C (NYSE:NYLD) are both mid-cap utilities companies, but which is the better investment? We will contrast the two companies based on the strength of their profitability, institutional ownership, analyst recommendations, risk, valuation, earnings and dividends.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    The longer-term issue in all of this is the swift growth of renewable power. It’s starting from an incredibly small base, so growth won’t always be as robust as it is today. But these are still early days in the transition, allowing companies that get in early a huge growth runway. You can invest in this space in a number of different ways, from diversified utilities like NextEra Energy, which gets nearly half of its revenue from renewable power, or with companies like Brookfield Renewable Partners LP (NYSE:BEP) , which is strictly focused on renewable power. Note that Brookfield’s core business is well-established hydroelectric power plants, but the partnership’s expansion is likely to increasingly be in the solar and wind space.
