Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

Following past boom/bust cycles, the oil business appears to have bottomed in February 2016 at $27 a barrel. The bruising multi-year bust in crude oil prices was the biggest reason for the world stock market sell-off from late 2015 to early 2016 of roughly 15% overall. The cruel irony of ultra-low prices is its disruptive effect on regular exploration activity. A short-term oil market depression in expectations disproportionately slashes oil drilling activity. Oil exploration budgets for 2017 are down 65% from 2014 and the smallest in 12 years, DESPITE a record estimate for global demand next year. In the long-run, oil & gas development and production may fail to keep pace with the steady growth in total demand. Will the 2015-16 “bust” sow the seeds of the next “boom” phase in pricing?

    Flir Systems gained $2.78, or 8.1%, to close at $36.93.

    The company’sdisappointing fourth-quarter earnings report was forgotten when it announced that the U.S. Coast Guard awarded it a $50 million contract. Flir will provide marine electronics systems for more than 2,000 Coast Guard vessels for its Scalable Integrated Navigation Systems 2 (SINS-2) program over a five-year period, with the option for extended delivery for an additional five years.

    Even before the news, Imperial Capital’sEd Mally was bullish on the stock’s prospects, who raised his price target on the stock by $2, to $38:

    Although we believe that some may still consider Flir as just a premier provider of very high-end cameras in the bellies of Bell Helicopters or border towers in a lumpy government sector, this 35-year-old company is a global leader in thousands of infrared detector cores and thermography equipment markets and also provides lower priced products to commercial and consumer security customers as well as other customers.

    Flir is up 2% so far this year.

    Yes, oil stayed above $50 a barrel, but in a note published this morning, Cornerstone Macro’s Carter Worth warned that a “stuck” oil price could be as damaging as a dropping one:

    Then, of course, theres the inconvenient fact that WTI Crude Oil itself is hopelessly stuck in the low $50 a
    barrel range a level at which it was trading in June of last year. Essentially seven months without any forward progress is the bottom line.

Revenue fell 47.4% year over year to $974 million, also above the $806 million consensus estimate. Transocean said its contract backlog was $11.3 billion as of its February fleet status report. Raymond Jamess Praveen Narra and J. Marshall Adkins reiterated an Underperform rating on the stock following the report. They praised the companys ongoing cost controls and strong revenue efficiency, which they expect to continue. But still arent ready to recommend the stock amid a difficult macro backdrop. More detail from their note:

    Transocean continued to minimize costs and maximize efficiency amid a challenging offshore environment, reporting 4Q16 adjusted EBITDA of $414 million, higher than our estimate of $363 million and consensus of $394 million. The beat was driven by lower than expected costs of $344 million (adjusting for favorable litigation), which came in ~12% lower than our estimate of $385 million and guidance of guidance of $375-385 million. Total revenue efficiency came in at 100.3%, as it was boosted by bonus incentives and possibly effective results from the new contracting model, particularly in the high-spec jackup market. The beat to our estimates was also driven by higher than anticipated revenues, which came in at $805 million, above our estimate of $788 million, but below the consensus estimate of $812 million. We note, our adjusted revenue excludes $169 million in early termination fees during the quarter.

    The shares are up 6.6% to $14.16 in recent trading, although theyre down 4% year to date.

Costco (NASDAQ:COST) continues to squander an opportunity by operating as if the internet has not become a major factor in retail.

The company has proven resilient in the face of digital competitors led by Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). While other retailers are shuttering stores, losing sales, and generally fighting for survival, the warehouse chain has not had that problem.

Costco had a decent fiscal 2016, with comparable-store sales up 4% globally and 3% in the United States when the impact of falling gasoline prices is factored out. In addition, net income for the year was roughly the same as 2015, coming in at $2.35 billion, or $5.33 per diluted share, compared to $2.38 billion, or $5.37 per diluted share last year.

Those numbers dropped a little in the first quarter of 2017, which covers the period ending November 20. During Q1, comparable-store sales were up just 1% for the U.S., with the total company posting a 2% gain. Net income, however, came in a bit better, with the company reporting $545 million, or $1.24 per diluted share, compared to $480 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, in Q1 of fiscal 2017.

In general, though, conditions in the financial industry have been more volatile than the rest of the business, and Jefferies, therefore, plays a bigger role in how the overall company does.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018

The Trump Rally is back on again.

Wall Street didn’t get the nitty gritty details it wanted on policies such as tax reform and trade from President Trump Tuesday night in his speech to Congress, but the commander-in-chief’s “presidential” tone set investors at ease and they pushed the Dow up more than 300 pointsto a record-setting close above 21,000.

Investors are taking Trumps measured and positive demeanor as a sign that he will have a better chance ofgetting his economic agenda through Congress.

Trumps speech was upbeat, all-inclusive and presidential,” says Bruce Bittles, chief investment strategist, at Baird. “We have a leader and that is what allthe excitement is about.

In his address to a joint session of lawmakers, Trump reiterated his push for historic tax reform that will put American businesses on a level playing field with foreign competitors, repeated his calls for a $1 trillion infrastructure spending plan and n oted that his administration has undertaken a historic effort to massively reduce jobcrushing regulations. The president also repeated his promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The impact of that shift can already be seen in the way Alphabets aggregate cost per click has declined in the last two years. At the same time, the total number of clicks has increased. The shift to mobile as well as the increasing traffic from new markets are jointly giving more click volume, but lower revenue per click. This trend will continue, it is not something that Alphabet can snap itself out of that easily; and in all likelihood we might see this accelerate in the next few years as mobile usage in developing markets increases.

    Friday was a good day on Wall Street, as the stock market responded favorably to encouraging news on the employment front. The U.S. unemployment rate dropped on fairly strong job creation during the month of February, and that helped push the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq Composite to modest gains of roughly between a quarter percent and a half percent. Yet even with a positive mood among market participants, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the end-of-week rally.
