Top Cheap Stocks To Own For 2019

After years of underperformance, energy finally is starting to show sector leadership. And of course, just when it does, the president shoots out a tweet last week about OPEC and the current price of oil. This despite the fact that he has cheered U.S. energy independence and our growth in production status as it creates tens of thousands of jobs here at home. Despite the saber-rattling, there’s every indication that higher prices could be here to stay.

In a new research report, Jefferies feels that the president’s one-off comment aside, the fundamentals for the sector look outstanding and the stocks remain some of the best values as we approach the busy summer driving season. The report noted this:

Just when Energy was finally playing a game of catch up with oil, Trump tweeted concerns about OPEC and the price of oil. We hope that this goes the way of trade tariffs: they become less of a concern once he understands what he actually said. We are Overweight Energy as it is cheap; a weaker dollar, stronger GDP, and improving sentiment provides tailwind.

    IBM (IBM) reports earnings on Tuesday night, but the charts tell us to approach Big Blue with caution here.

    It’s true that the firm has beaten analysts’ earnings-per-share expectations for a whopping 13 consecutive quarters. And while EPS beats are nice, IBM also posted 3.5% year-over-year revenue growth back in January. That broke a nearly six-year string of year-over-year revenue contraction.

Top Cheap Stocks To Own For 2019: Kohl’s Corporation(KSS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    The relationship between the P/E ratio and the dividend yield is important to understand here. The lower a company’s valuation is, the more valuable the dividend becomes as the dividend yield increases. For instance, with a P/E ratio of about 12, Kohl’s (NYSE: KSS) could be considered a value stock, and its dividend yields a respectable 3.9%. Its payout ratio — the percentage of earnings that go to its dividend or dividend per share divided by earnings per share — is also modest at 48%. Eighty percent is considered the maximum that dividend stocks should aim for in order to leave adequate cash flow for other needs.

    To me, the introduction of delightful uncertainty is reminiscent of Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) gamification of shopping. Kohl’s features a more stable, predictable, department-store-genre selection of goods. Yet it dangles layers of discounts and promotions, which can then be combined with “Kohl’s Cash” (customer rewards generated by prior purchases) to serially reduce the list price of an item at checkout. Both TJX and Kohl’s attempt to bolster value with fun, in order to maintain steady traffic into their respective stores.
