Refiners such as Valero and LyondellBasell Industries (NYSE: LYB), as well as construction companies Deere & Co.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2018: ResMed Inc.(RMD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By STOCKPICKR]

    Medical equipment maker ResMed (RMD) is another name that’s starting to look “toppy” after a bullish start to the year. RMD has more or less kept pace with the S&P 500 in 2014, climbing just over 11% from January to today — but shares started forming a long-term triple-top over the summer, and that setup is getting close to completion this fall.

    It’s worth noting that long-term price setups come with equally long term trading implications when they trigger.

    The triple-top that RMD is showing is a fairly rare pattern, but the trigger is pretty perfunctory: if shares break down below support at $48, then sellers are in control, and it’s time to unload them. Downside isn’t a foregone conclusion in ResMed, but this setup only gets invalidated if shares can close above their prior highs at $54.

According tothe American Farm Bureau Federation,a classic Thanksgiving dinner will cost$49.87 for a gathering of 10 orjust under $5 per person down from 2015s all-time high of $50.11.

  • [By John Udovich]

    Thanksgiving is almost here but the exit of both Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NYSE: PPC) and Smithfield Foods (NYSE: SFD) to focus on their chicken or pork businesses (the latter was also acquired by the Chinese) leaves just two big Thanksgiving turkey stocks, Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) and Seaboard Corporation (NYSEAMEX: SEB), for investors to consider. According to the American Far Bureau, a 16-pound turkey will (on average) come in at a total of $22.74 this year or roughly $1.42 per pound for a decrease of 2 cents per pound or a total of 30 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2015. The price drop may be a transition back to the norm as the significant bird flu outbreak last year hurt the nations supply of both turkey and eggs.

Home improvements aren’t cheap. Wouldn’t it be nice if the federal government would help subsidize the cost? In a way, you can make that happen by claiming certain home-improvement tax benefits.

Medical home improvements

If you make improvements to your house based on the medical needs of yourself, your spouse, or a dependent, you can deduct the cost of those home improvements as a medical expense. Not surprisingly, the IRS has a few caveats for this deduction.

First, like all medical expenses, medical home improvements are subject to a 10% AGI floor. That means you have to calculate 10% of your adjusted gross income for the year, then subtract that amount from the total of your medical expenses. What’s left over is the amount you can actually claim for the medical expense deduction.

    Silver Wheaton (NYSE:SLW), of course, is a streamer like Sandstorm and Franco, but it is the largest in the precious-metals industry, and arguably the best-known, because its business model came to define what streaming is.

    Abramowicz continued that these factors are important for investors to keep in mind heading into earnings season when some of the largest banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) and Citigroup Inc (NYSE: C) report this week. In fact, both JPMorgan and Citi boast the two largest fixed-income trading desks based on global revenues.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) is scheduled to reveal its first-quarter results on Thursday. The consensus estimates call for $1.24 in earnings per share (EPS), as well as $17.83 in revenue. Shares endedtrading at $59.43 onFriday. The consensus analyst price target is $64.74. The stock has a 52-week trading range of $38.31 to $62.53.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    So we find ourselves in the position we have for most of this year: positive on the market averages but less confident in what stocks to buy. While banks have clearly been the flavor of the day we have generally avoided those names. Both Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) are only now hitting six year highs and we have never advocated chasing winners. Meanwhile the staid, safe defensive stocks (value) like P&G (PG), Coke (KO), and Philip Morris (PM) are lagging. The dichotomy might be illustrated by retailers where Best Buy has been roaring while Gap Stores has been tanking…

    However, the law was repealed in 1999 under former president Bill Clinton. Banks such as Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C), Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC), and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) gobbled up rivals and expanded into new businesses, becoming “one-stop-shopping financial behemoths,” wrote Bloomberg on April 6.

The 10 Best Stocks to Buy for the Next Decade

Last year, InvestorPlace contributor Dan Burrows highlighted the 10 best-performing S&P 500 stocks of the past decade. The most important lesson one finds studying these high-flying stocks is that patience wins out over all other attributes of a successful investor.

A classic example of how true this is involves the Fidelity Magellan Fund (MUTF:FMAGX), the large mutual fund made famous by portfolio manager Peter Lynch. Lynch ran the fund for 13 years from 1977 until 1990, growing it from $20 million to $14 billion before stepping aside.

Fidelity studied the returns of Fidelity Magellan unitholders over those 13 years to see how they did compared to the legendary portfolio manager. While Lynch managed to achieve a 29% annual return over this period, the average investor lost money.

Patience would have served those investors well, as the ups and downs of the stock market shook them out of their positions — and in doing so, deprived them of millions of dollars in profits. A $10,000 investment in 1977 held until 1990 was worth $273,947 by the end of that 13-year period.

I’m not Peter Lynch, but I can say with some confidence that the examples to follow are the 10 best stocks to buy for the next decade.

Let’s take a look.

Not only is Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) CEO and founder Jeff Bezos a great chief executive, but Amazon has its hands in so many pies — including a very profitable cloud business that generates almost $1 billion in annual operating income — that it’s hard to fathom just how big Amazon could be a decade from now.

While Amazon’s AWS cloud business is a big deal, Amazon Prime is the service that delivers the goods when it comes to building the foundation for AMZN stock. More than 100 million people subscribe to Amazon Prime at $99 per year.

It’s not the $9.9 billion in annual subscription revenue that matters, but the amount each of those subscribers spends on other Amazon products. Statistics show that 76% of Amazon Prime members spend more than they did before paying the annual $99 fee.

That’s what you call “pulling power,” and it’s a big reason why AMZN stock will be a winner for the long haul.

If you bought Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc (NASDAQ:BUFF) at its July 2015 IPO price of $20 and you’re still holding it, you’ve made money — barely.

The pet food maker has been on a wild ride since going public almost two years ago. It opened with a first-day return of 36%, but proceeded to fall from $28 to $16 in the span of a couple months, only to gain most of that back by its one-year anniversary.

However, BUFF is an explosive stock lying in wait.

Blue Buffalo is investing $150 million-$170 million in 2017 to expand its manufacturing capacity so that it can accommodate further growth beyond 6% of the $28 billion U.S. pet food market.

In 2016, its adjusted earnings-per-share increased 27.2% to 79 cents; it expects that number to increase by as much as 19% in 2017 to between 91 and 94 cents-per-share.

Over the past five years, Blue Buffalo has more than doubled its revenues, from $523.0 million in 2012 to $1.1 billion in 2016, while growing net income from $65.5 million to $130.2 million in the same period.

People will continue to spend more on healthy food in the coming decade, and that includes for their pets. Blue Buffalo is ready to capture more of those gains, and BUFF shareholders will benefit as a result.

You can say what you want about the iPhone maker’s best days being behind it, but I have a feeling Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will continue to create products people want to buy for years to come.

What they are, I couldn’t tell you.

What I do know is that Apple will continue to generate a huge amount of free cash flow — $52.5 billion in the trailing 12 months through Dec. 31, 2016 — to reward shareholders for their patience and loyalty.

AAPL currently converts 71.7% of its EBITDA into free cash flow, which is pretty darn close to the 77.7% conversion rate of Amazon — a company known for doing a good job converting cash.

The most recent rumor on Wall Street has Apple and Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) hooking up to form a media and tech conglomerate. While speculative in nature, the combination would provide Apple with a few more avenues to generate ideas for new products.

At this point, while I like Disney, I’d say it needs Apple more than Apple needs it.

Warren Buffett is 87 years old. Eventually, he’s going to step out of the game. The argument is that his departure will create a panic that will send Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) stock spiraling downward.

Personally, I don’t subscribe to that theory.

Businesses — whether it be a huge holding company like Buffett’s or something much less grandiose — are valued by calculating the present value of its future cash flows. Berkshire Hathaway’s are significant.

Another way is to value a business is to look at the sum of all its parts.

Berkshire Hathaway owns hundreds of businesses; each of these firms, if sold at auction, would be worth more than the current stock price would seem to reflect. If Buffett moved on and the company was broken up in a prudent manner over an extended period, Berkshire Hathaway investors would benefit greatly from such a process.

The best part of Berkshire Hathaway? You get a quasi-mutual fund with a diversified group of holdings and no management fees.

That’s the best kind of buy-and-hold investment.

The retail industry is in a free fall at the moment, yet Illinois-based Ulta Beauty Inc (NASDAQ:ULTA) is busy growing its network of stores — which currently number 974 — by 100 per year. It expects to build out its brick-and-mortar footprint to 1,700 stores over the next decade.

Ulta’s business model provides a shopping experience that is unique in a beauty market where no one firm controls a big chunk of market share, not even Sephora. In fact, Ulta controls just 4% of the $127 billion U.S. beauty market despite having almost $5 billion in annual revenue.

With consumer confidence growing, Ulta stands a good chance over the next decade of bumping this number significantly higher. ULTA shares might be expensive at 30 times earnings, but that’s the price you pay to own the best.

Ulta Beauty helps women with their beauty needs; Sherwin-Williams Co (NYSE:SHW) does the same for houses and businesses around the world.

What’s the one thing real estate professionals suggest you should do when selling your home? Give it a fresh coat of paint. It’s the most cost-effective improvement you can make to bring in better offers.

Sherwin-Williams originally tried to buy Mexican paint company Comex in 2014, but it was beaten out by PPG Industries, Inc. (NYSE:PPG). More than two years later, it’s in the homestretch of closing its $11.3 billion acquisition of The Valspar Corp (NYSE:VAL), which will significantly improve its position in the coatings business outside North America.

Over the past decade, SHW has achieved a return of more than 600%, significantly greater than the S&P 500’s 82% climb in that same period.

If any stock can repeat this kind of performance over the next decade, Sherwin-Williams has to be at the top of the list.

Earlier this year, the management of Kraft Heinz Co (NASDAQ:KHC) put quite the scare into the 169,000 Unilever plc (ADR) (NYSE:UL) employees with a potential $143 billion offer to buy the company. Fortunately (for employees), Unilever’s management told the Brazilians — 3G Capital and Berkshire Hathaway control KHC — to take a hike.

Kraft Heinz is going to make another acquisition, most likely this year. And when it does, the first thing the Brazilians are going to do is trim the fat. (Read this article about Tim Hortons to understand their cost-cutting ruthlessness.) That’s going to mean the loss of a lot of jobs.

While that’s terrible for the people on the receiving end of the pink slips, it’s been proven by 3G Capital time and again to significantly increase the bottom line. Shareholders definitely will win as Kraft Heinz guts PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE:PEP) or some other vulnerable target.

I’m of two minds when it comes to 3G Capital’s blitzkrieg management style: On the one hand, people suffer greatly from these job cuts. On the other, I wonder whether those jobs should have been created in the first place.

7 Tech Stocks That Will Crush the Market for Years

If you can live with this kind of management ruthlessness, KHC is a great business to own, because people will always have to eat.

Teen discount clothing chain Five Below Inc (NASDAQ:FIVE) saw same-store sales increase by 2% in fiscal 2016. That might not seem like a lot, but when you have retailers going out of business left and right, Jim Cramer is right to rave about this stock.

In today’s retail, you either want to be in the discount or luxury businesses … but not in the deadly middle.

Five Below has a plan to grow revenues and earnings by 20% every year until 2020 and beyond. In 2016, revenues and earnings grew 20.2% and 24.5%, respectively, to $1 billion and $71.8 million respectively.

In 2017, FIVE expects to open 100 new stores, bringing the total across the country to more than 600. Five Below sees 2,000 stores open in the U.S. at some point in the future. While it seems like an ambitious goal given how many stores are closing these days, Five Below has a very talented management team led by CEO Joel Anderson, whose previous job was CEO of Walmart.com.

At prices $5 or below, Five Below delivers a concept that’s unique to teen and pre-teen customers. And it should deliver plenty of returns over the next 10 years.

Over the past decade, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. (NASDAQ:CBRL) has doubled the performance of the S&P 500 by delivering consistent results. Its return on invested capital in 2006 was 8%; today, it’s 14%, well above the restaurant industry average of 9%.

CBRL’s unique restaurant/retail concept generates approximately 80% of its revenue from its restaurants, with its retail shop the remaining 20%. The average store throws off revenue of $4.6 million. The retail business generates sales per square foot of $440 and 50% gross margins.

On April 17, Cracker Barrel opened its first store on the West Coast in Tualatin, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. It plans to open three more locations in the Portland area. Expect continued growth out west in coming years.

Cracker Barrel features a strong female presence in upper management, representing what a modern progressive American company is supposed to look like at the top. Good on them … and good for you, because that kind of diversity will pay off in spades.

Who knew that sleep apnea paid so well?

ResMed Inc. (NYSE:RMD) manufactures medical devices and provides cloud-based software applications for medical professionals to treat and manage sleep apnea and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Treating 2 million patients daily, ResMed has become good at reducing healthcare costs by minimizing the effects of chronic disease.

Good businesses make and save people and companies money. ResMed does both.

Over the past decade, ResMed has delivered an annual return to shareholders of 11.9%, 478 basis points greater than the S&P 500. Year-to-date, RMD is up 40% and on its way to its fourth year of gains in the past five.

According to a recent study, 26% of adults have sleep apnea — a disorder that can wreak havoc on a person’s heart, not to mention a marriage due to both partners’ lack of sleep. My dad died as a result of COPD, a disease that effects more than 200 million people worldwide and costs the healthcare system more than $50 billion per year in the U.S. alone.

ResMed has growth opportunities in Latin America, Eastern Europe and China and India — all huge markets that will keep it busy for the next decade and beyond.

Of all the stocks to buy for the next decade, ResMed is my pick for most reliable given the markets it serves.

Debt collectors are coming … for your years-overdue unpaid federal taxes.

The IRS said Tuesday it would start sending letters out this month to taxpayers whose longtime unpaid tax debts are being farmed out to authorized private debt collection firms.

The private debt collection program was created by a federal law enacted by Congress in December 2015.

The IRS told reporters that for the first month they plan to send out 100 letters a week. Assuming there are no problems with that process, the plan is to then start issuing 1,000 letters a week thereafter.

Of course, whenever debt collection is outsourced to the private sector by a government agency, that can provide a boon to scammers posing as federal agents or as the approved debt collection firms.

So here’s what every taxpayer needs to know to avoid getting duped by con artists:

You’ll hear from the IRS first.

If your case will be farmed out to a private collection firm, the IRS will notify you and your tax representative first by letter. That letter will include the name of the firm you’ll be dealing with, along with the firm’s contact information. Then the designated firm will send its own letter confirming that it will handle your case.

stock recommendation: ResMed Inc.(RMD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By STOCKPICKR]

    Medical equipment maker ResMed (RMD) is another name that’s starting to look “toppy” after a bullish start to the year. RMD has more or less kept pace with the S&P 500 in 2014, climbing just over 11% from January to today — but shares started forming a long-term triple-top over the summer, and that setup is getting close to completion this fall.

    It’s worth noting that long-term price setups come with equally long term trading implications when they trigger.

    The triple-top that RMD is showing is a fairly rare pattern, but the trigger is pretty perfunctory: if shares break down below support at $48, then sellers are in control, and it’s time to unload them. Downside isn’t a foregone conclusion in ResMed, but this setup only gets invalidated if shares can close above their prior highs at $54.

    HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ) reported fiscal second-quarter financial results after markets closed Wednesday. The company said that it had $0.40 in earnings per share (EPS) and $12.39 billion in revenue, versus consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters that called for $0.39 in EPS and $11.88 billion in revenue. The same period from last year had $0.41 in EPS and $11.59 billion in revenue.

    However, for all the doom and gloom surrounding the PC market, the computer industry remains one of the most important subsectors in all of tech. In fact, even as unit volumes contract, over 260 million personal computers were sold last year globally, and the companies that remain at the center of this market — names such asHP Inc. (NYSE:HPQ) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) — continue to print tens of billions of dollars in aggregate profits from the space and pass them along to shareholders through dividends and buybacks. So let’s review what makes these PC makers some of the best dividend stocks in the industry.

    HP Inc. (HPQ) rose to the top of the S&P 500 Wednesday.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    The shares climbed 48 cents, or 2.7%, to $18.02, compared to the S&P 500, which lost 8.85 points, or 0.38%, to 2344.93.

    HP was helped by data from IDC that showed the firm regained the crown of top PC vendor from rival Levono Group in Q1.

    In addition, Morgan Stanleys Katy Huberty reiterated an Overweight rating on HP and increased her price target to $22 from $19:

    In the past 18 months, HP removed over $1B of excess costs and refocused investment dollars on driving innovation across printing and personal systems. Recent product refreshes, including JetIntelligence laser printers, Sprocket mobile photo printer, and premium and gaming/VR-focused PCs are now driving share gains and a return to top-line growth (total revenue grew 2% and 4% Y/Y in last two fiscal quarters, respectively). By reinventing HP, we believe management is heralding a new era for the company whereby investors can expect greater confidence in top-line stabilization as well as earnings and FCF durability.

    Investors have apparently begun to recognize positive factors similar to those we have mentioned in this report, including earnings growth. This has helped drive up the company’s shares by a sharp 28.50% over the past year, a rise that has exceeded that of the S&P 500 Index. Regarding the stock’s future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, ACN should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.

    Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer’s view or that of this articles’s author. TheStreet Ratings has this to say about the recommendation:

     

    We rate ACCENTURE PLC as a Buy with a ratings score of A+. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. 

stock recommendation: Caseys General Stores, Inc.(CASY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lawrence Meyers]

    Its been a mighty weird year for Caseys General Stores (CASY). The company has had some tough quarters, but just when things are looking bleak, the team got some runners on base and drove a few home.

  • [By Brian Stoffel]

    For a number of years,Casey’s General Stores (NASDAQ:CASY) investors were rewarded by the small-town convenience chain’s decision to become a major vendor of pizza and other prepared foods. But with that success has come increased competition. Combined with somewhat stagnant economies in the areas that Casey’s operates — namely, towns of less than 5,000 people in middle America — the company has had trouble meeting its own expectations. That trend continued on Monday night when Casey’s announced earnings for the third quarter of its fiscal year.

  • [By Mike Deane]

    After the bell on Monday, Casey’s General Stores (CASY) announced its fiscal Q1 earnings, posting a strong increase in profits and overall revenues compared to the same time period last year.

    The Ankeny, IA-based convenience store company announced quarterly revenues of $2.11 billion, which were up from $1.87 billion in last year’s same quarter. Profits for the company came in at $55.71 million, or $1.43 per share, compared to $39.03 million, or $1.01 per share, in last year’s Q1.

    Both of these figures beat analysts’ estimates, which were EPS of $1.26 on revenues of $2.1 billion.

    CASY shares were up $1.01, or 1.49%, at market close on Monday. YTD, the stock is up more than 26%.

  • [By Chad Fraser]

    One chain that continues to match up well with the above criteria is Casey’s General Stores (NasdaqGS: CASY). We last highlighted the company’s strong prospects in a December 12 Investing Daily article. Since then, the stock has risen nearly 40%.
