    But before we get to the stock pick, here’s a list of the 10 top-performing Warren Buffett stocks so far this year…

    Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) is a company that thrives on of new car sales. If you have had satellite radio and are not solely reliant on what you get for music in streaming or your library, then chances are pretty good that you won’t want to go back to just having old-fashioned FM/AM radio.

Top 5 Stocks For 2018: Canadian Pacific Railway Limited(CP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Railroad operator CSX may not have risen as sharply as Alcoa over the past few months, but it has also been steadily rising. It got a big boost this month when the CEO of Canadian Pacific Railway (NYSE:CP) Hunter Harrison resigned his position and was said to be teaming up with activist investor Paul Hilal to take on CSX, causing the railroad’s stock to surge 23% on the news.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    A strange turn of events has sent shares of CSX (CSX)–and other railroads, including Union Pacific (UNP) and Canadian Pacific Railway (CP)–soaring today. It all started when Hunter Harrison announced that he would leave Canadian Pacific ahead of schedule to team up with activist investor for the turnaround of another railway company. That company is thought to be CSX.

Hot Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now

By Oisin Breen, Research

In line with previous articles we’ve written, and paraphrasing Buffett, it’s always interesting to consider investing behind the things you know. This article, motivated by a curiosity into firms supporting the deep-sea cable infrastructure that drives the internet, focuses on technological infrastructure firm TE Connectivity (TEL) that does just that, and a whole lot more. TE is a components manufacturer operating in a range of industries. 2017 has been a good year for the firm, and as investors continue to seek both value and growth in the market, unheralded infrastructure stocks available cheaply, relative to earnings, may continue to see their share prices climb in 2018.

Hot Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now: T-Mobile US, Inc.(TMUS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) knows how to put on a show. In fact, CEO John Legere clearly has borrowed from Steve Jobs, P.T. Barnum, and Vince McMahon to varying degrees. The outspoken wireless boss has a charisma and an arrogance that would not work if his company did not deliver on his promises.

  • [By Daniel Miller]

    As a rule of thumb, the two largest phone carriers in the U.S. have been dominant, followed by a smaller two in Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) and T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS). With a new administration that might view business deals differently than previous administrations, interest in a merger between Sprint and T-Mobile seems to be heating up. The idea is to create three ultra-competitive phone carriers rather than two dominant and two smaller carriers.

Hot Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now: Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd.(TSM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    For many years, NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) has relied on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) to manufacture the graphics chips it designs. Today, most of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture-based graphics processors — from the GeForce GTX 1060, designed for mainstream PC gamers, all the way through its cutting edge Tesla P100 datacenter accelerators — are manufactured by TSMC.

    A while back, DigiTimes reported that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), a major contract chip manufacturer, planned to introduce an enhanced variant of its 16nm manufacturing technology dubbed “12nm.”

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    To illustrate my point, Intel’s chief competitor, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), has said that its 7-nanometer technology, which should go into mass production in the first half of 2018, delivers a roughly 1.63-fold density improvement over its 10-nanometer technology.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    As part of this discussion, he took the time to explain how the technology that Intel calls 14 nanometers is more like what its competitors — Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.(NYSE:TSM) — call 10 nanometers (smaller is generally believed to be better).

    Contract-chip manufacturing giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) recently announced its earnings results, provided forward guidance for the current quarter, and provided a lot of insight on the ramp-up of its next-generation chip-manufacturing technology, called 10-nanometers (10nm for short).

Baird says that a team with over $1 billion in assets and three advisors has joined it from Wells Fargo Clearing in Anchorage, Alaska.

The Planning Group of the Northwest is now part of Baird. The group includes advisors Margaret R. Price, CFP; Sarah K. Springer, CFP; and Grant F. Shearer.

Price has been in the business for 35 years and spent the past 27 at Wells Fargo, according to FINRA BrokerCheck.

Springer was with Wells Fargo for about 14 years. Shearer spent the last 16 with the San Francisco-based bank, after cutting his teeth at Prudential Securities in the late 1990s.

Baird’s Private Wealth Management business includes roughly 860 advisors with client assets of $126 billion.

Wells Fargo’s Wealth and Investment Management unit includes 14,564 advisors as of Sept. 30, down 3 from a year ago and flat compared with the earlier quarter. Total client assets stand at $1.9 trillion.

    Wednesday was yet another record-setting day for the stock market, as the Dow climbed triple digits and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite followed the venerable average to unprecedented heights. Economic data showing rising inflation made it more likely that the Federal Reserve will look to boost interest rates at its next Federal Open Market Committee meeting next month, and the ripples throughout the bond market sent many investors to consider stocks instead. Yet despite the substantial rally, some stocks missed out on the move higher, and American International Group (NYSE:AIG), Teck Resources (NYSE:TECK), and Movado Group (NYSE:MOV) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

stock market shares: American States Water Company(AWR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    On Tuesday, analysts at Brean Capital upgraded American States Water Co (AWR), as they now believe the shares have reached an attractive entry point.

    The analysts upgraded AWR from “Hold” to “Buy” and see shares reaching $28. This price target suggests an 11% upside to the stock’s Monday closing price of $25.22.

    Brean Capital analyst Michael Gaugler said, “The shares have fallen to a price level that we now consider attractive, and our sum-of-the-parts valuation indicates fair value is $28 based on our 2014 EPS forecasts. We recommend investors begin accumulating positions under the $25.50 price level to allow sufficient (10%) upside (excluding dividends) to our target price.”

    “We acknowledge that the current environment for utility stocks in terms of interest rate impacts is less than ideal. However, we note the shares of AWR (and our other utility coverage names) have traded at higher P/E multiples when the general level of interest rates was much higher. We see the impact of higher rates as short term and negligible, particularly when we look closely at AWR’s ability to continue to raise its dividend payout versus the peer group by using free cash flow from the ASUS business,” Gaugler added.

    American States Water shares were up 72 cents, or 2.85%, during early morning trading on Tuesday. The stock is up 8% year-to-date.

Wolfe Research’s Hunter Keay and Matt Morris note that Southwest Airlines (LUV) may be a crowded trade but it’s still their best idea in airlines. They explain why:

Photo: Patrick T. Fallon/Bloomberg

Southwest reiterated its guide of modest y/y increase in 2Q RASM this morning with its April traffic report, which is a huge relief for us, because we really didnt want to redo our slides for our call today.

The affirmation of the RASM guide also comes on the heels of Southwests widely discussed $5 fare decrease on close-in bookings. We believe Southwest provided the 2Q guide with this fare decrease in mind given how it came soon after the guide was provided. We think Southwest believed the cost of not lowering close-in fares would have been more negative for its 2Q RASM result given the re-introduction of yield-poisoning Advantage Fares by network airlines.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2018

This commentary relates to a profile of New Belgium Brewery in the July 27 Forbes.

Craft beer–how quaint, how cute! But don’t fall in love with an investment because you love the product. Craft Brew Alliance (BREW) is an assortment of artisanal beermakers from Oregon, Hawaii, New Hampshire and elsewhere. But a fair amount of its brewing and most of its distribution is handled by Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD), the Budweiser outfit.

In this crowded business, where freshness and economies of scale matter, smallness does not confer profits. Craft Brew’s enterprise value runs to 29 times its plausible 2017 net before interest, tax and depreciation; the ratio for AB InBev is more like 18. The latter is a better buy.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2018: AbbVie Inc.(ABBV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    That’s why its worth pointing out that just yesterday, small cap cannabinoid prodrug pharmaceutical stock Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (OTCQB: VBIO) announced the appointment of Tracy Rockney, J.D. to the position of Senior Regulatory Advisor. In addition to being the Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer of OneSource Regulatory, a regulatory consulting firm, Rockney was previously:

    From May 2010 to May 2015, she was the VP, Regulatory Affairs at AbbVie Inc (NYSE: ABBV) leading the executive functions related to regulatory policy and intelligence. From August 1993 to January 2005, she held positions of increasing responsibility with Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE), formerly Wyeth.  From January 2005 to April 2010, she held positions with Shire PLC (NASDAQ: SHPG), including serving as Senior Director, Regulatory Affairs. This included responsibilities as Therapeutic Area Head for Shire’s Gastrointestinal Business Unit, Regulatory Advertising & Promotion and CMC. Rockney led the regulatory team and negotiations with the FDA for LIALDA which are part of the drug class of aminosalicylates that are now part of the clinical standard-of-care for treating inflammatory bowel disease. LIALDA™ was found to be effective in Phase 3 trials for inducing remission of active mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis after eight weeks of treatment. LIALDA™ (also now marketed as Mezavant®) had 2016 U.S. sales of $714 million – up 16% relative to 2015 sales.

    Rockney’s work for Shire is of particular interest to Vitality Biopharma which has developed a new class of cannabinoid prodrugs (medications or compounds that, after administration, are converted within the body into a pharmacologically active drug), known as cannabosides, which upon ingestion can enable the selective delivery of THC and cannabidiol (CBD) to the gastrointestinal tract.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

Over the past year, the performance of T. Rowe Price Blue Chip Growth (TRBCX has underscored why it pays to sit tight when a fund with a superior long-term record hits a speed bump. In 2016, as investors turned away from shares of the fast-growing, large-capitalization stocks that Blue Chip targets in favor of more-undervalued fare, the fund lagged the stock market dramatically. Stocks that had previously buoyed the fund, such as Amazon.com and Facebook, were suddenly a drag, says manager Larry Puglia. And energy and utility stockssectors that Blue Chip tends to ignoreperformed exceptionally well.

But these kinds of style shifts dont last forever. Large-cap growth stocks, led by the technology sector, are rebounding this year, and Blue Chip is benefiting. In the first three months of 2017, the fund returned 10.4%, beating Standard & Poors 500-stock index by 4.3 percentage points. Over the past 12 months, Blue Chip, a member of the Kiplinger 25, outpaced the index by nearly a full percentage point. (Prices and returns are through March 31)

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Pan American Silver Corp.(PAAS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    Net operating cash flow has decreased to $32.87 million or 14.64% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow PAN AMERICAN SILVER CORP is still fairing well by exceeding its industry average cash flow growth rate of -28.24%.

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    PAN AMERICAN SILVER CORP 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. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, PAN AMERICAN SILVER CORP reported poor results of -$3.62 versus -$2.98 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.35 versus -$3.62).

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Metals & Mining industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 231.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$20.25 million to -$67.05 million.

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Metals & Mining industry and the overall market, PAN AMERICAN SILVER CORP’s return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate PAN AMERICAN SILVER CORP as a Sell with a ratings score of D. This is driven by some concerns, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company’s weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share. 

  • [By JPMorgan]

    The weak silver sentiment has raised PAAS’ dividend yield to 2.8% which we feel is well supported by PAAS’ strong balance sheet and its healthy liquidity position of $566mn. The company is also advancing two growth projects, expected to add 5moz of silver and 128koz of gold pa to its production from 2018. Its costs are also improving, helped by devalued operating currencies and productivity improvements. 

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Apartment Investment and Management Company(AIV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Apartment Investment & Management (AIV) tumbled today, as the weakness in real-estate investment trusts following Donald Trump’s surprise election continued today. It was the second-biggest loser in the S&P 500 today.

    Getty Images

    Shares of Apartment Investment & Management dropped 4.1% to $41.03 today, while the Real Estate SPDR Dow Jones REIT ETF (RWR) fell 1.1% to $90.03. The S&P 500 rose rose 0.8% to 2,180.39.

    In a note released yesterday, Raymond James analyst Buck Horne and team cut their price target on Apartment Investment & Management to $50 from $50, even as they maintained their Strong Buy rating. They explain why:

    Prefacing our comment qualifying the significant economic uncertainties that have arisen post Tuesdays election, we are maintaining our Strong Buy rating onApartment Investment & Management shares while slightly adjusting our target price (to $50 from $52) and net-asset-value estimate (down $1 to $48.51/share). These adjustments are solely to reflect slightly more conservatism in our cap rate assumptions following the post-election interest rate shifts. We continue to find Apartment Investment & Managements risk/reward profile compelling in this environment as its diversified class B-priced portfolio should prove more resilient to supply pressures and benefit from the growing shortage of affordable workforce housing. In an inflationary environment with potentially declining housing affordability, we are particularly attracted to Aimcos price points, demographics, and balance sheet full of long-dated, non-recourse, fixed rate leverage.

    Apartment Investment & Management reported net income of $67 million on sales of $978 million in 2015.
