Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Royal Mail Plc, which traces its origins back five hundred years has been a member of the FTSE 100, the UKs index of blue chip companies, since shortly after being privatized in 2013, only narrowly escaped relegation in the most recent quarterly review this June. But could it now be relegated? Some pundits have ventured as much.

Todays British postal that was founded in 1516 when Henry VIII created a Master of the Posts was the darling of the stock market following its full privatization in 2013 and debut on the London Stock Exchange.

But after shares reached the giddy heights of £6.15 in January 2014 concerns have grown about its speed of restructuring, falling letter volumes and on-going negotiations with unions around closing its expensive Defined Benefit (DB) pension scheme.

These worries have contributed to the shares falling to £3.97 a pop of late, which equates to a decline of 20% year to date. And, since hitting the highs back then the share price drop equates to c.35%.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019

Thor Industries (NYSE:THO) posted excellent results for FQ4 to cap off a strong year. Revenues increased 21.7%, beating estimates by a wide margin, and EPS of $1.57 came in ahead of estimates at $1.57. Net income from continuing operations increased 20.1% y/y. I have to admit I was surprised by the results. I expected that a weakening US economy would take its toll on the RV sector. In hindsight, of course, the performance makes sense. Consumers may be spending less on physical goods, but they are spending more on experiences such as travel and vacation, and low gas prices are still a tailwind. THO is up 53% YTD but we think the stock is, at a minimum, fairly valued, and quite possibly undervalued.

The Jayco acquisition, which closed on June 30, was partially responsible for the strong performance: Jayco sales contributed to 18% of the y/y increase in sales and 60% of the increase in consolidated RV backlog, which more than doubled y/y to $1.2 billion. Jayco provides a solid runway of growth going forward, and management expects sales to increase double digits in 2017. But THO also posted strong organic growth. Sales increased 14.4% y/y and Jayco contributed to less than a fifth of the increase. Conditions are close to ideal for the RV industry, and as long as gas prices and interest rates stay low (and we expect they will through 2017), THO should continue to post impressive y/y growth over the coming quarters.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

Sometimes when you want to find out how someone you admire ticks, you ask them whom they respect. When it comes to super-investor Warren Buffett, the answer (among others) is Jack Bogle, the founder of the Vanguard Group.

Bogle should be awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for bringing the passive index fund into the world. This vehicle simply holds a basket of securities at very low cost. It should be a staple in your portfolio. It’s saved investors hundreds of millions of dollars over the past four decades.

In Buffett’s most recent Berkshire-Hathaway annual letter, Buffett goes out of his way to praise Bogle, who is still defending individual investors from the ravages of Wall Street.

Jack Bogle, founder of the Vanguard Group. Photographer: Jay Mallin / Bloomberg News

“If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors,” Buffett wrote, “the hands-down choice should be Jack Bogle. For decades, Jack has urged investors to invest in ultra-low-cost index funds. In his crusade, he amassed only a tiny percentage of the wealth that has typically flowed to managers who have promised their investors large rewards while delivering them nothing – or, as in our bet, less than nothing – of added value.”

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Abeona Therapeutics Inc.(ABEO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Thursday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting small cap rare disease stock Abeona Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: ABEO):

    Abeona Therapeutics is clearly a timing trade – we think today’s something of a blowoff top, marked by a volume surge and the fact that the stock’s already peeling back from its peak; the profit-takers are already going to work. We saw a similar surge on Tuesday, and though that one didn’t end up kick-starting a pullback, it helped set up today’s reversal bar (by virtue of luring in the last of the would-be buyers). There’s just not a lot of room left for more upside.

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    Small and micro cap stocks can obviously be a fickle bunch, but I sure hope all of you participated in Abeona Therapeutics Inc. (ABEO) back when we first put the idea out there in early June. What a tremendous stock this has been for all of us, and it’s not like this happens all of the time.

Shares of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (VRX) have lost half their value today after it missed earnings forecasts, offered disappointing guidance and said it could default on its debt. But hey, if you liked it at $70, you have to like it at $35, right? S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Jeffrey Loo explains why he’s keeping his Buy rating on Valeant’s shares:

Associated Press

We lower our 12-month target $30 to $90 on well below peers 9X our ’16 EPS estimate of $10.00, down $3.75, from ongoing challenges. We lower ’17 EPS $4.45 to $12.55. Q4 EPS of $2.50 vs. $2.58 is $0.15 below our estimate.Valeant updates ’16 sales guidance to $11.0B-$11.2B from $12.5B-$12.7B and EPS to $9.50-$10.50 from $13.25-$13.75. We are surprised by the large revision on some inventory destocking, along with challenges with third party vendors. Still, we believeValeant has several attractive assets and we anticipate improved stability, aided by Walgreens (WBA) deal, beginning in 2H ’16.

stock market trader: Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc.(VNDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another biotechnology player that looks poised to trigger a big breakout trade is Vanda Pharmaceuticals (VNDA), which is focused on the development and commercialization of clinical-stage drug candidates for central nervous system disorders. This stock has been on fire so far in 2013, with shares up a whopping 258%.

    If you take a look at the chart for Vanda Pharmaceuticals, you’ll notice that this stock has recently broke out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $12.34 to $12.66 a share with solid upside volume. So far, this breakout has held and now shares of VNDA are quickly moving within range of triggering an even bigger breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VNDA if it manages to break out above its 52-week high at $13.30 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action 908,467 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then VNDA will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $15 to $17 a share.

    Traders can look to buy VNDA off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some near-term support at $12 a share. One could also buy VNDA off strength once it takes out $13.30 a share with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
