Top Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now

Spectre and Meltdown, the two major flaws discovered in computer processors, could allow cybercriminals to steal passwords or other sensitive data. And experts are on the lookout for them.

The flaws have existed in modern processors for 20 years, but news surfaced last week that virtually all computers and smartphones are affected by the bugs.

So far, there is no evidence that hackers have exploited the vulnerabilities.

But it’s only a matter of time before attempts are made, according to Matt Tait, a senior fellow at UT Austin’s Strauss Center.

“We’ll absolutely see in the next few weeks and months people using this vulnerability, especially in the web browser to steal passwords,” Tait told CNNMoney.

Many tech companies were made aware of the flaws long before the news was made public and have been working on fixes for consumer products and services.

Consumers who keep their web browsers, apps and devices up-to-date should be protected from anyone trying to use these vulnerabilities.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a strong day for the stock market, as the Dow finished up nearly 100 points and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both posted gains as well. Investors remained generally upbeat about the prospects for the U.S. economy in 2017, and a rise in crude oil prices helped lift the energy sector higher during the market session. Yet comments during a press conference from President-elect Donald Trump weighed on the healthcare sector, and some individual stocks took particularly hard hits. Among the worst performers were Perrigo (NYSE:PRGO), Novadaq Technologies (NASDAQ:NVDQ), and Ethan Allen Interiors (NYSE:ETH). Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

What happened

Shares of Rogers Corp. (NYSE:ROG) gained 19.9% in April 2017, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

So what

The company reported first-quarter results on April 26, sending share prices nearly 12% higher the next day. Rogers saw 27% year-over-year sales growth and 79% higher earnings, leaving analyst estimates far behind in both cases.

Now what

Rogers shares have now gained 72% over the last 52 weeks, trading steadily near all-time highs. The maker of specialized materials used in battery systems and wireless antennas has consistently delivered solid earnings surprises over the last three years, often coupled with equally strong revenue wins.

This company is poised to continue making a killing in several emerging markets, including the Internet of Things and automotive computing. Best of all, Rogers is winning competitive contracts without resorting to pricing discounts. Trailing operating margins have increased from 12.4% to 14.2% over the last four quarters. In other words, clients are choosing Rogers over rival materials providers for other reasons than low prices, such as product quality and dependable ordering and delivery processes.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Universal Health Services (UHS) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after BuzzFeed published an investigative story alleging that the company’s psychiatric hospitals put profits ahead of people.

    Getty Images

    Shares of Universal Health Services dropped 12% to$111.30 today, while the S&P 500 rose 1.3% to 2,241.35, a record high.

    Universal Health Services’ stock had been minding its business for most of the day–it was up 1.1% at $127.76 at 3:10 p.m. today–when the story by BuzzFeed’s Rosalind Adams went live. Here’s the gist:

    Millwood Hospital is part of Americas largest psychiatric hospital chain, Universal Health Services, or UHS. Its more than 200 psychiatric facilities across the country admitted nearly 450,000 patients last year. The result was almost $7.5 billion in revenues from inpatient care last year and profit margins of around 30%. More than a third of the companys overall revenue from both medical hospitals and psychiatric facilities comes from taxpayers through Medicare and Medicaid.

    A yearlong BuzzFeed News investigation based on interviews with 175 current and former UHS staff, including 18 executives who ran UHS hospitals; more than 120 additional interviews with patients, government investigators, and other experts; and a cache of internal documents raises grave questions about the extent to which those profits were achieved at the expense of patients.

    Universal Health Services market capitalization dropped to $10.7 billion today from $12.3 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $680 million on sales of $9 billion in 2015.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Universal Health Services Inc. (NYSE: UHS) lost 8.4% Wednesday to post a new 52-week low of $1/99.81 after closing Tuesday at $108.99. The 52-week high is $139.77.

Hot Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Saudi Arabia has put plans to balance its budget on hold as the government opens the spending taps.

The kingdom announced Tuesday that government spending will increase to 978 billion riyals ($261 billion) in 2018, a jump of 6% from the previous year.

At the same time, the kingdom said it was shifting its target for a balanced budget from 2020 to 2023.

The spending splurge comes as Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman embarks on an ambitious reform agenda designed to reduce the country’s dependence on crude oil.

His blueprint, called Vision 2030, includes social and economic reforms such as lifting the ban on women driving. But it also includes subsidy cuts that have weighed on growth.

“The government is increasing spending as a way to stimulate growth and increase private sector participation and investment,” said John Sfakianakis, director of economic research at the Gulf Research Center in Riyadh.

“It makes a lot of sense to delay achieving a balance budget as too much fiscal tightening too soon could hurt the economy more,” Sfakianakis added.

    The other key benefit for Strategic is that it enjoys industry-leading earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) per available room. For 2012, Strategic generated $81 per room of EBITDA. Compare this to top comps LaSalle Hotel (NYSE: LHO) at $74 per room and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) at $71. The reason for this is that Strategic is much less reliant than its peers on rooms, with much greater exposure to food and beverages. Strategic earns 53% of its revenue from rooms, while its peers get around 66% of revenues from rooms.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Foresight Energy LP(FELP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    FORESIGHT ENERGY LP has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, FORESIGHT ENERGY LP increased its bottom line by earning $0.78 versus $0.08 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 67.9% in earnings ($0.25 versus $0.78).

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock’s performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 83.17%, worse than the S&P 500’s performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company’s earnings per share are down 82.85% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock’s sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    After the recent distribution cut, Foresight’s distribution coverage is over 6.0x with much of the future cash flow dedicated to reducing leverage. It has over 80% of its coal sales priced for next year and its costs should improve as the low cost Hillsboro mine comes back into production early next year. It is also benefitting from cost synergies with the Murray operations. We believe Foresight’s new distribution level is sustainable. With its 15.5% yield, we feel FELP could be attractive to income seeking investors. 

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income has significantly decreased by 82.3% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $45.72 million to $8.07 million.

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate FORESIGHT ENERGY LP as a Sell with a ratings score of E+. This is based on a variety of negative investment measures, which should drive this stock to significantly underperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally high debt management risk, poor profit margins, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and feeble growth in its earnings per share. 

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 18.59 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. To add to this, FELP has a quick ratio of 0.56, this demonstrates the lack of ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.

Healthcare was the best-performing sector, likely due to the Senate Republicans’ version of a bill to replace the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. WTI crude oil for August delivery settled at $42.74 a barrel, up 0.5% on the day. August gold added 0.3% for the day to settle at $1,249.40. Equities were headed for a mixed close shortly before the bell as the DJIA traded down 0.02% for the day, the S&P 500 traded up 0.02%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded up 0.11%.

Stocks traded very near the break-even line just minutes before the closing bell. The closing tally could finish with either a small gain or a small loss for any or all of the indexes.

The DJIA stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close Thursday was Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) which traded up 0.96% at $136.20. The stock’s 52-week range is $109.32 to $137.00. Volume was about 15% below the daily average of around 5.7 million shares. The healthcare giant got a boost from the Senate’s healthcare bill which reduces the impact of federal spending cuts in the near term but boosts the cuts later.

Best Safest Stocks To Watch For 2018

“When you are unshakeable, you make smart decisions,” says entrepreneur, philanthropist and New York Times best-selling author Tony Robbins to TheStreet.

But investing correctly also has a lot to do with your mindset.

Robbins says it’s nearly impossible to be angry or fearful when you’re grateful. And making more money is not the answer, nor is it the path to gratitude. Controlling your mind and focusing on what’s important is the key to happiness, says Robbins.

You can train your brain to be grateful, he says.

“There are two things that mess up your relationships, it’s anger and fear,” explains Robbins. Robbins points to Salesforce (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff as being a total giver, which has set him up for success in business.
