Best Stocks To Buy Right Now

Molson Coors Brewing Co. (NYSE: TAP) was given two positive analyst calls on Tuesday. Oneincludeda new Buy rating with a $130 price target at Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs sees upside after Molson takes full control over the MillerCoors operation. This looks solid because it is calling for some 21% upside, but there was an even more impressive resumption of analyst coverage at another firm.

Merrill Lynch resumed its Molson Coors coverage with a Buy rating and gave ita $140 price objective. Merrill Lynch’s investment rationale said that the company is in a position to drive improved sales growth, expand margins and grow free cash flow.

What Merrill Lynch sees as favorable is of course the pending acquisition of the 58% outstanding stake of the Miller Coors joint venture. Another strength seen is the Miller brands outside of the United States. The firm said:

We are resuming coverage of Molson Coors (TAP) with a Buy rating and $140 price objective. Our price objective applies a 20.9x P/E multiple to our 2017 estimated pro-forma cash earnings per share of $6.68. We expect Miller Coors/Miller international integration to catalyze sales growth and expanded margins & free cash flow.

    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.

  • [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.

Best Bank Stocks To Buy Right Now

Bank of America (BAC) is at its highest point since the financial crisis hit back in 2008; we’re now up we’re up over 170% on our investment, notes Jason Simpkins, contributing editor to The Wealth Advisory.

With those gains, a lot of people would sell. But they’d be making a huge mistake. You see, banking stocks are the new growth stock, and in 2017, we’re going to see a lot more growth from this investment.

Rising interest rates are going to be a huge boon to BAC revenues. Already, with historically low rates, about 50% of the money Bank of America brings in comes from interest rates.

And those rates are going to keep going up. The Fed is forecast to make three to four rate hikes this year, and that’s going to lead to BAC shares climbing even higher.

Management at Bank of America is predicting net interest income growth of up to $600 million by the close of this quarter. That’s going to lead to even more earnings growth and more earnings mean more gains for us.
