  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    That yield is higher than those of many of its best-run peers, including Disney (NYSE:DIS) and CBS (NYSE: CBS). The two media companies with higher yields are AT&T (NYSE:T) and Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA) (NASDAQ: VIAB). AT&T is more of a mobile-first utility, and it pays a very high percentage of its net income out as a dividend. Meanwhile, Viacom has been beaten down thanks to its sub-scale, media-only portfolio, which is not especially well-positioned in today’s world.

    The internet giant formerly known as Google just keeps plowing ahead, with growth on a host of fronts. But despite its beating fourth-quarter expectations on profits and revenues, its share price dipped a few percentage points Tuesday. Media B-lister Viacom(NASDAQ:VIA) (NASDAQ:VIAB), by contrast, reported mixed numbers, but got a share price pop.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Unless you’re a bit of a media company wonk, you’re probably far less familiar with Viacom(NASDAQ:VIA)(NASDAQ:VIAB) than you are with the properties it owns: Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, BET, and Paramount Pictures, to name a few. It’s a portfolio with a lot of potential, though it’s been awhile since that translated into great overall results. When the company reported earnings Tuesday, the numbers were mixed. Still, investors bid up its stock, and MarketFoolery host Chris Hill and senior analyst Emily Flippen have some opinions about why.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Despite some progress in trade talks between the United States and China, China warned its citizens about trouble ahead for its economy. This morning, the Chinese government predicted the nation’s economy would grow between a rate of 6% and 6.5% in the year ahead. This figure would represent a slowdown from last year’s expansion rate of 6.6% and would be the lowest growth total in 30 years. Ongoing tensions between the United States and China have cooled in recent weeks. U.S. President Donald Trump said that the two nations are “very, very close” to a deal and a “signing summit.” Health insurance companies are under pressure after the U.S. House of Representatives unveiled a “Medicare for all” bill. Although the bill has very little chance of passing in the current session of Congress, investors are unnerved about the growing desire in Washington to shift to a single-payer model. Although there might be an opportunity for companies like Cigna Corp. (NYSE: CI) and UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) to rebound, don’t expect the gains to last long. Many analysts feel that health insurance stocks are ripe for a sharp downturn when Democratic nominees for president begin debating their healthcare positions in the fall. Shares of Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) are falling again in pre-market hours. The latest bad news came after the company received another downgrade – this one from Barclays Plc. (NYSE: BCS). The British bank slashed its price target from $210 to $192 per share and said that the company has undermined its own narrative around the Model 3. “With lower margins not likely to be offset by increased volumes and cost saves, we cut our PT to $192 and remain underweight…” the bank wrote. The price target of $192 represents downside of 32.7% from Tuesday’s closing price.

    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd.

Best Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2019

The big indexes are all down for the week, thanks to persistent uncertainty over trade and the global economy – and the possibility of a financial panic in the Chinese juggernaut.

This really underscores the extreme turbulence we’ve seen during the first half of the year – and there’s every reason to expect the second half to be the same, if not more volatile.

So Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald sat down with our top editor Bill Patalon to name some of his very favorite stocks to buy and hold for superior returns during a wild and wooly finish to 2018.

In fact, these shares have already given us around 300% in reliable gains since Keith first recommended them – and we’ve been through corrections in China, the United States, and Europe – and we’ve seen Brexit, Trump, trade tantrums, and a whole host of other bone- and market-jarring events in the meantime.

Each one of these picks fits Keith’s stringent "Total Wealth" criteria, so you can buy with confidence whether markets happen to be headed up or down in any particular week.

Best Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2019: Callon Petroleum Company(CPE)

Finally, rising crude oil prices give the shale oil industry a boost, too. Depending on the source, shale oil production becomes profitable when crude oil trades between $50 and $60 per barrel or higher. With current oil price in the high $60s and looking strong, investors once again turned towards shale oil producers.

Many of these companies still do not have the strength to compete. However, Callon Petroleum (CPE, $14.17) seems poised to take advantage of the stronger energy market. Nine in 10 analysts surveyed by MarketWatch hold buy ratings on the stock and as a group they target a 38% gain over the next year. That gives the stock a forward P/E of just over 15, which is in line with other, more mainstream energy stocks.


What is most important is that the market itself already caught on to Callon’s improved condition. The stock is up sharply since February and broke out to the upside from its own basing pattern.

Best Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2019: AU Optronics Corp(AUO)

AU Optronics Corp (ADR) (NYSE:AUO) is a supplier of flat panel displays used in everything from 4k and 8k televisions to cell phones and notebooks.

Shares look poised to move up and out of a three-year sideways range as higher wages set the stage for increased spending on new iPhones (with a TFT-LCD model on the way in addition to the OLED iPhone X) and televisions.

The company will next report results on July 26 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of 10 cents per share on revenues of $72.2 billion. When the company last reported on April 26, earnings of 45 cents per share beat estimates by 25 cents on a 15.9% decline in revenues.

Best Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2019: Tree.com Inc.(TREE)

Have you heard the expression, “Stock prices don’t go up in a straight line?”

That definitely applies to LendingTree Inc (NASDAQ:TREE), an online platform for helping consumers find the best loan. Even though the stock is down 25% in April, LendingTree CEO Doug Lebda recently appeared at the top of my list of CEOs who’ve delivered for shareholders with a 3,216% cumulative return since March 2010.

By comparison, that’s almost three times the return of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) over the same period.

Businesses that make or save people money or time always seem to be in demand and LendingTree is no exception.

As is often the case, investors weren’t too happy with the company missing analyst estimates for Q1 2018, sending TREE stock down more than 17% April 26.

What was the big miss?

Analysts were expecting $1.12 per share; LendingTree delivered $1.10, 29% higher than the same quarter a year earlier. That’s hardly an imprisonable offense.

Sure, TREE isn’t cheap, but Doug Lebda’s proven he can deliver for shareholders. As they say, “The proof is in the pudding.”

If you’ve owned TREE for a long time you know what I’m talking about.
