Top Stocks To Invest In 2019: Celgene Corporation(CELG)

I’ve owned Celgene when its stock was hot, and I’ve owned it when it was not. There hasn’t been much heat for the big biotech over the last year. However, my hunch is that will change.

Celgene stock trades at less than eight times expected earnings. The biotech stock is cheap for two primary reasons. First, Celgene depends on Revlimid for 63% of its total revenue, and generic-drug makers are challenging the patents for Revlimid. Second, the company has experienced some pipeline setbacks, which makes investors even more anxious about the potential threat to Revlimid. These factors arguably make Celgene the riskiest big biotech stock on the market.

But Celgene continues to deliver exceptionally strong earnings. I don’t see the stock going much lower as long as that doesn’t change — and I don’t think it will. Any good news should provide a nice catalyst for the biotech. What’s more, the mere anticipation of good news should boost the stock.

Investors have plenty of anticipating to do. Celgene should file yet again for approval of ozanimod in treating multiple sclerosis in early 2019. Solid phase 3 results for luspatercept in treating myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), a group of rare blood disorders, should lead to regulatory filings in the first half of next year. Celgene also expects to submit cell therapy liso-cel (formerly known as JCAR017) for approval in 2019.

Those are just three potential blockbusters that Celgene has percolating in its pipeline, and there are more. In my view, the growth prospects for the biotech are really good. They’re so good that I don’t think Celgene will remain such a bargain for much longer.

Top Stocks To Invest In 2019: Royal Dutch Shell plc(RDS-A)

Royal Dutch Shell put up an almost unbelievable $14.2 billion in free cash flow in the last 12 months. That allows it to simultaneously reward shareholders with a 5.5% dividend yield and and position itself as a prime player in the future of energy — more specifically, in the coming transition from gas to electric transportation. 

The world’s largest oil companies are getting hip to that game by making giant, multibillion-dollar investments in electric utilities and renewable energy technologies. Holland’s prized oil producer isn’t risking getting left behind, planning to spend up to $2 billion per year on non-fossil energy sources. So far, so good. 

Royal Dutch Shell owns a 44% stake in solar project manager Silicon Ranch, it acquired U.K. electricity provider First Utility, and it owns natural gas distributor and solar technology developer MP2 Energy. That provides a solid foundation upon which to build, but it’s important for investors to note that management sets a high bar for its renewable investments.

All of its acquisitions in electricity distribution and electricity generation are expected to deliver equity rates of return of 8% to 12%, in addition to free cash generation within the next five years. In other words, Royal Dutch Shell (and a few other oil majors) isn’t just gobbling up renewable energy assets to collect shiny objects for an expensive PR game; it’s thinking strategically when deploying capital. That long-term thinking, when coupled with its impressive dividend yield, makes this oil stock a buy for investors committed to the long haul. 

Top Stocks To Invest In 2019: Eli Lilly and Company(LLY)

On Feb. 9, LLY dropped to a three-year low. Since then, it’s risen 16%. That climb moved the stock to trading higher than its 50-day and 200-day moving averages.

That sort of momentum – pushing it above its moving averages – is a sign the stock is heading even higher.

best healthcare stocks to buymoneymorning.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/2018/07/benjamin_pill-75×50.jpg 75w” sizes=”(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px” title=”best healthcare stocks to buy” style=”font-size: 18.0018px; box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 24px 24px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; vertical-align: middle; max-width: 100%; height: auto; float: right; text-align: right;” />

In fact, the trend lines just formed a "golden cross," one of the most bullish technical indicators investors can use. In a golden cross, the 50-day moving average rises higher than the 200-day moving average, a classic bullish sign.

The last time that happened was in February 2017 when LLY was in the midst of a killer rally that sent the market up 35% over a five-month stretch.

It gets even better. Short interest grew 20% over the past month, which means a short squeeze could push the stock even higher if the rally continues.

Given that all the signals are indicating more upside, Chris has a price target on LLY of $90 per share. That’s slightly above the highs of October and December. That move might give a double if investors play the $85 call with an Aug. 17, 2018 expiration.

But LLY isn’t the best healthcare stock on our list…

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019

If a rising tide lifts all boats, bank stocks are the ship you want to be on.

Interest rates are rising. The economy is growing. And unemployment is below 4%, which has helped keep loan losses near historical lows. Best of all, most banks have spent the past decade shedding expenses, so a greater share of each dollar of revenue flows into pre-tax profit.

But investors can do even better by selecting the very best banks the market has to offer. Below, three Fool.com contributors make the case for why these stocks are worthy additions to your portfolio.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: Costco Wholesale Corporation(COST)

Last but not least, add Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) to your list of stocks to buy for their long-term uptrend.

Costco won’t win any value awards. Priced at 29 times its trailing earnings and 25 times its forward-looking profits, the stock is more than pushing its luck — especially by retail standards. But investors just don’t care. They love the way the brick-and-mortar retail has managed to compete with both Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT) at the same time, setting the stage for shockingly consistent income and revenue growth — no “retail apocalypse” here.

Analysts have taken notice too. Wells Fargo analyst Edward Kelly just upgraded COST stock, explaining:

“We expect the company to sustain strong comp momentum despite difficult comparisons, deliver improved membership trends, navigate rising retail cost pressures, and beat consensus expectations.”

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: Eli Lilly and Company(LLY)

Our next choice is Eli Lilly And Co (NYSE:LLY). The stock has an Earnings ESP of +0.73% and a Zacks Rank #2.

The consensus mark for first-quarter earnings stands at $1.13 per share. Headquartered in Indianapolis, IN, Lilly has an excellent positive earnings surprise history.

The company’s average beat over the trailing four quarters is 4.08%. 

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: Amazon.com, Inc.(AMZN)

Shares in Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) are down 7% over the last month. Amazon has had to deal with FB’s data woes as well as a barrage of tweet attacks from President donald Trump. “I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy,” Trump tweeted on April 3.

But while Amazon may not be the president’s favorite stock, it certainly has top marks from the Street. RBC Capital’s Mark Mahaney writes “Presidential Obsession” is now an investment risk, but we continue to view the long-term growth outlook for AMZN to be the most robust in ’Net land given the very large TAMs [total addressable markets] AMZN is facing.”

He continues: “For ’18, we believe AMZN starts gaining traction in Marketing services (AMS), while Cloud appears to have hit a positive industry inflection point.” Indeed, AWS revenue contribution is still growing and should act as a meaningful, sustainable source of leverage for Amazon.

Right now 34 out of 35 top analysts are bullish on the stock. These analysts see the stock spiking 19% to $1,706. This is just above Mahaney’s $1,700 price target.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: Ingersoll-Rand plc (Ireland)(IR)

Ingersoll-Rand Plc (NYSE:IR) is a designer, manufacturer and seller of industrial and commercial products.

The company is based out of Swords and has a Zacks Rank #2. The expected earnings growth rate for the current year is 17.21%. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current year has improved 2.3% over the past 60 days. Ingersoll-Rand has gained 4.4% in the past six months.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019: AudioCodes Ltd.(AUDC)

AudioCodes designs, develops and markets enabling technologies and communication components for the transmission of voice, fax and modem over packet networks. Analysts have become increasingly bullish on AUDC lately, and our consensus projection for its full-year earnings has moved three cents higher in the last month. The stock is a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) based on this revision activity. The company is now expected to witness EPS growth of 22% on 9% higher revenue this fiscal year. Meanwhile, AUDC’s P/E of 16.2 represents a discount to its industry average.
