SPX, -0.29%

Top 5 Penny Stocks To Own Right Now

There are numerous trading techniques to consider for each and every options trade, so Fred Oltarsh at Options Strategy Network details five of the ones he considers extremely vital for trying to put the percentages in the trader’s favor.

The key to trading options contracts successfully (individual stocks and futures as well) is to put the percentages in your favor. This involves numerous trading techniques discussed in the Options Strategy Network options guide. Briefly, one should consider the following factors for each and every trade: 1) liquidity or the cost to initiate and liquidate the position, 2) implied volatility or the relative value of the particular option one is trading, 3) having a pre-designated point of liquidation, 4) risk/reward ratio after commissions and slippage and 5) diversification of strategies and trades.

Each analysis described above increases the likelihood of success of an individual trade. Examining the liquidity of the market that one is about to trade is the first step to increasing levels of productivity. If one is buying a stock for a long-term hold, the implications of liquidity are not as great for that trader as for the trader who intends to buy and sell stock frequently. If one is day trading, whether stocks or options, even a bid/ask spread of a penny on a low priced stock, has an impact on the bottom line. The best way to analyze it is to quickly determine the difference of the bid/ask spread as a percentage of the value of the instrument traded. Then determine what that value is per one thousand dollars invested. If the number sounds high, it’s probably worth staying away from that trade.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

It is the painful truth Wall Street doesn’t want you to know. All that time you spent researching mutual funds and comparing star ratings in hopes of the finding a Warren Buffett was a waste. You would have been better off watching cat videos and creating memes to cyber shame United Airlines. You could have beaten 90% of mutual fund managers the past 15 years by investing in plain-vanilla index funds like SPDR S&P 500 ETF, Vanguard 500 Index Fund or Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund.

The SPIVA® U.S. Scorecard, issued by S&P Dow Jones Indices today, reveals the vast majority of mutual funds across the board fail to surpass their benchmarks in both the short and long term. Two-thirds of large-cap funds, 89% of mid-cap funds and 86% of small-cap funds lagged their indexes last year.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: AVG Technolo gies N.V.(AVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Igor Novgorodtsev]

    InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.

    Marathon Oil (MRO) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after oil tumbled after data pointed to higher inventories of crude.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Marathon Oildropped 8.7% to $14.87, while the S&P 500 fell 0.2% to 2,362.98, as Front Month Nymex Crude futures for April delivery slid 5.4% to $50.28., leading some to wonder if the price oil could drop below $50 a barrel.

    It wasn’t just Marathon that got clipped as the eight worst-performing stocks in the S&P 500 came from the energy sector, including Murphy Oil (MUR), which fell 6.7% to $25.87, Devon Energy (DVN), which slid 6.5% to $40.72, and Chesapeake Energy (CHK), which stumbled 6.1% to $4.94. No surprise, then, that the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) slumped 2.6% to $69.65.

    The oil rout began after the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that U.S. oil inventories rose by 8.2 million barrels to reach $518.4 million, a record level.

    Marathon Oil’s market capitalization fell to $12.6 billion today from $13.8 billion yesterday. It reported a net loss of $2.1 billion on sales of $4.1 billion in 2016.

    Cramer said he tried to buck this trend by investing in EOG Resources (EOG) and Marathon Oil (MRO) but was wrong on both counts. In the case of EOG, even having the best properties wasn’t enough to ward off the collapse in oil prices. Meanwhile, Marathon’s decision to spin off its refining business left it with no cushion to stem its losses.

It has a rich history of delivering value to shareholders and continues to hold a dominant technological edge over key competitors in crop protection products, seeds, and traits. While little has changed its promising pipeline and portfolio, the pending acquisition throws a wrench in anyone’s plans to start or add to a position. Uncertainty stemming from the merger provides several terrible reasons to buy Monsanto at this time.

    For the month of March, it said that revenue passenger miles and available seat miles were down.

    Fellow airline United Continental(UAL) also released March metrics today, although it down on the backlash to a video showing apassenger being dragged off a plane.

    Shares of American Airlines (AAL) are soaring today after Stifel named the stock to Stifel Select List. But it’s the reason for Stifel’s optimism, more than the addition itself, that is eye catching.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    See, American Airlines has been under pressure this year–its dropped 11% so far in 2017–on fears that increased capacity would reduce its profitability. The same fears have also dented United Continental Holdings (UAL) and Delta Air Lines (DAL).

    Stifel’s Joseph DeNardi and Matthew Rachal, however, argue that the increased capacity at American Airlines doesn’t matter thanks to a revenue stream that the market has ignored: The revenue from its frequent flier program. They explain why:

    The consensus price target on American, excluding us at $95, of $54 reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of the source of American’s earnings, in our view. Within American is an operating segment that accounts for ~50% of EBIT, is growing revenue at ~10% per year with a 65%-70% operating margin with very low capital requirements and very high barriers to entry. We know it exists. American Airlines knows it exists. But the vast majority of the investment community does not or, at this point, is skeptical that it does. We attribute this to a lack of information supplied by the companies for investors to properly assess the size and profitability of airline loyalty programs. We are confident that this will change in the near-to-mid term as disclosures begin to improve over the next several months followed by the reporting of the business as its own operating segment in 12-18 months.

    How big a deal could this be? DeNardi and Rachal argue that the AAdvantage program could generate about $2.7 billion in 2018, greater than the $2.5 billion in pre-tax earnings implied by the consensus estimate of $3.50 a share in 2018. They call it “an earnings stream immune from incremental capac

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Galapagos NV(GLPG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Zeiler]

    Bill Patalon’s initial stock pick was Galapagos NV (Nasdaq ADR: GLPG), a Belgian biotech company.

    Patalon was attracted to Galapagos’ strategy to target “orphan diseases,” afflictions that strike rarely and so often go ignored by the Big Pharma companies. He also liked that Galapagos had more than 50 drug discovery programs underway, and that it already had licensing agreements with several bigger players in the industry.

  • [By Stephen Mack]

    Galapagos NV (Nasdaq: GLPG) is our big winner so far, gaining 578.8% since Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon shared his recommendation with Money Morning readers in April 2012. The S&P 500 has gained 75.4% in the same time. Bill has renewed his recommendation for the Belgian biotech several times over the years, saying in 2016 that it has “an established history of piling on gains.” With an average gain of 110% a year, it’s hard to argue with that.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Cerner Corporation(CERN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Cerner (CERN) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after meetings earnings forecasts but offering below-consensus guidance.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Cerner dropped 4.4% to $51.50 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.4% to 2,316.10.

    SunTrust Robinson Humphrey’s Sandy Draper and team contend that “most of the bad news is already priced in.” They explain:

    Although we expect this news to weigh on the stock…we think the market has remained cautious on CERN shares heading into the 4Q16 print given the uneven execution throughout 2016 and the post-election regulatory uncertainty that has broadly weighed on the HCIT space as a whole. We observe that CERN shares closed about 3% below the level they traded at this time last year, while the S&P was up over 21% in that time. The muted 12-month performance in the stock suggests the market rightly anticipated unattractive year-end results and 2017 guidance, which suggests to us that downside to CERN shares should be limited.

    Cerner’s market capitalization fell to $17.5 billion today from $18.3 billion yesterday.

    Barron’s Vito Racanelli recommended shares of Cerner on March 16, 2016, when the stock traded at $51.46.

    Cerner (CERN) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after thehealth care information technology company reported better-than-expected earnings and revenue.

    Cernergained 7.8% to $64.75 at 5:03 p.m. today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 2,384.20.

    Canaccord Genuity’s Richard Close and Brian Hoffman contend Cerner may be “rediscovered its mojo.” They explain:

    We reiterate our BUY rating and raise our PT to $66 (was $59) as the company finally
    appears to have provided quarterly and annual targets that it can meet. Possibly more important, analyst expectations sit near the mid-point of guidance, portending upside potential. The outlook appears solid as the company (1) rebuilds a track record of delivering on expectations, (2) reaffirmed confidence in 2017 bookings growth, and (3) has a strengthened pipeline for ITWorks and revenue cycle. CERN may have rediscovered its mojo.

    Cerner’s market capitalization rose to $21.4 billion today from $19.8 billion yesterday.
