How to Find Stocks Poised to Skyrocket

Imagine how your life would be different with just a few critical calls in the market.

finding stocks that skyrocket

Imagine your life if you had bought:

  • Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) for 39 cents per share.
  • Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) for $1.38 per share
  • Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) for 50 cents per share.

I recommended those stocks at those prices …. and my subscribers collected massive gains.

And I live a comfortable life because of those calls and many many others with similar huge gains.

I didn’t achieve those gains with market timing, or just by getting lucky.

I’m a numbers guy.

I have loved math my entire life and I have used math and technology to help me find the stocks poised to make huge moves in the market.

But I still wasn’t satisfied. I knew that math and technology could lead me to find the stocks that are poised to soar in a much shorter period of time.

We’re talking about moves of 100%, 200% and even 500% in months instead of years.

I’ve been working on this project for years, and now — finally — I’m ready to share it with everyone.

I call this effort Project Mastermind.”

Even just a few years ago, this kind of analysis was more like a dream than reality.

Using modern technology and loads of data, I am able to identify which stocks are ready to skyrocket, and the gains can come in months, not years!

Gains like these can be a retirement game changer. A chance to collect triple digit returns in a short time.

And now, I’m ready to unveil this system to the world.

We all know technology is changing the world around us, and it’s changing the way we invest too.

7 A-Rated Stocks That Are Under $10

Source: Shutterstock

Earnings season is fully upon us now and things are as expected … there are some big winners and some big losers. While growth should be solid this year, it’s not likely to set any records. That makes it important to find the opportunities in the market now, especially since there has been the big tech run-up in Q1. While some of these tech stocks are solid contenders, not all of them can be counted among the top stocks to consider now.

The big run in Q1 just got the market back to breakeven after the horror show in Q4, especially in December.

So now is the time to look for opportunities in select sectors where there should be better than average growth in the coming year. And within those sectors, there are some low-priced stocks with a lot of potential that are worth adding to your portfolio now.

The top stocks under $10 I feature here all have momentum in their favor — as measured by my Portfolio Grader — and their businesses are growing faster than their larger peers. These names also have an A-rating according to my system. Just make sure not to chase them too far from their current prices.

ICICI Bank Ltd ADR (NYSE:IBN) isn’t as much a play on the U.S. as it is the growth in India. It is only one of a handful of Indian stocks that trades in the U.S.

Remember, India’s GDP last year was 7% — 10% faster than China’s growth. And it is likely to continue posting numbers like that for years to come.

But like most emerging economies, it has its fits and starts. That’s why owning a solid bank is a good way to get some exposure without taking on too much risk. And that’s where IBN fits in.

IBN is one of only three privately held major Indian banks and it is growing like a tech company. What’s more, it’s also selling Prudential insurance in India through a majority-owned subsidiary ICICI Pru, a new product with huge potential. And insurance also has healthy margins.

With the U.S. and Chinese economies doing well, it’s a good signal that India will continue to prosper and develop. IBN stock is up more than 30% in the past year and has plenty of headroom left.

First BanCorp (FBP)

First BanCorp (NYSE:FBP) is a Puerto Rico-based bank that also has operations in the Caribbean and in the U.S. It’s on fire.

Given the massive devastation of the island from the recent hurricane, I mean that in a good way. FBP stock is up nearly 30% year-to-date and more than 50% in the past 12 months.

Much of this is due to the rebuilding efforts that are going on in the region now. It takes a while after a major natural disaster for funding to show up and start getting disbursed.

FBP is now in the middle of rebuilding the island and the various other islands where it has operations. And given its status of a territory of the U.S., native Puerto Ricans live in the U.S. and send money back to family there. This is also strengthening the economy of the island.

While fixing the island will happen over a long period of time, at some point it will end, but expanding new opportunities will present themselves and FBP will be on the front line. And it will have a strong balance sheet to help.

Infosys Ltd (INFY)

Infosys Ltd (INFY)

Infosys Ltd ADR (NYSE:INFY) is a global technology, outsourcing and consulting firm that offers an array of services to some of the largest businesses in the world. It’s headquartered in Bangalore, India and has been around for more than 35 years.

With a $46 billion market cap, this is an established company that continues to grow, taking advantage of expanding economies around the world. And where economies are tight, they also look to INFY to help grow their productivity by outsourcing operations that are being solved efficiently in companies’ current operations.

INFY has a respectable 2.9% dividend and is up 10% year-to-date and nearly 20% in the past year. Its last quarter’s earnings beat expectations by a comfortable margin but it warned that this year may not be as strong. But there are plenty of companies that have pointed this out; it’s not a shock. However, it has meant that the stock has lost some ground and is at a good price.

Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson (ERIC)

Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson (ERIC)

Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson(NASDAQ:ERIC) is in the 5G wars right now.

As a leading global telecom company, it is stuck between the leading 5G telecom player in the world — China’s Huawei — and the U.S. government. The U.S. is concerned that Huawei equipment may contain surveillance equipment to tap into telecommunications used over the network and has told allies that the U.S. will not allow aid money to be used to buy Huawei equipment or support a 5G network using its equipment.

And while that may seem like a great thing for ERIC — based in Sweden — the problem is, China isn’t interested in making it easy for ERIC to muscle in on its 5G dominance. The U.S. doesn’t have a native company that can scale up 5G, so there’s an uneasy stalemate among the players.

But regardless of how it shakes out, ERIC is still a major global player. And as networks upgrade and expand, ERIC will be a significant source of the work.

The stock is up 11% YTD and more than 30% in the past year. It may be a little bouncy for a while, but as long as the global economy keeps chugging along, ERIC will be in growth mode.

Cousins Properties (CUZ)

Cousins Properties (CUZ)

Cousins Properties Inc (NYSE:CUZ) is a commercial real estate investment trust (REIT) that has been around since 1958. Essentially, it owns and operates commercial buildings in some of the hottest regions of the Southwest, South and Mid Atlantic.

Having been launched and headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, it is one city where CUZ has significant holdings. Atlanta is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and that growth is continuing.

It also has properties in the tech mecca of Research Triangle in North Carolina as well as Austin, Texas. It also has properties in major markets in Florida and Arizona.

REITs are particularly hot right now for two reasons. First, low-interest rates and a steadily growing economy are helping make financing and new investments easier. Plus, it’s a good market to raise rents in.

Second is a tax advantage that was written into law in 2018 that allows new tax advantages for REITs and their investors.

Plus, the real estate market has been dormant for a while now, so this revival has been a long time coming.

Also, late last month, CUZ merged with Tier REIT (NYSE:TIER) adding another 50% to its market cap as well as a successful group of properties in many of the same markets.

Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF)

Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF)

Cleveland-Cliffs Inc (NYSE:CLF) has been around for more than 170 years. It was around 15 years before the Civil War started. That is durability.

Part of the reason it has endured is the fact that it does one thing: It makes iron ore pellets from mines and factories in Michigan and Minnesota for the U.S. steel industry.

This year started strongly on two fronts. First, one of its main competitors, Brazil-based Vale SA (NYSE:VALE) had to cut production when a dam broke at a mining operation in Brazil causing an incredible amount of damage.

Second, the strength of the U.S. economy has meant more demand for steel.

This is why CLF is up 27% YTD and 34% in the past year. And even after this price run, CLF stock is still delivering a 2% dividend.

CLF is a small company — about a $2 billion market cap — but it is a focused company that has seen a lot more economic challenges than most other firms in its sector. It may not be flashy, but it’s hot now and will continue to provide for shareholders.

Vereit Inc (VER)

Vereit Inc (VER)

Vereit Inc (NYSE:VER) owns and manages single tenant commercial properties in the US.

That means it owns properties that one business occupies, which makes it much more manageable for the REIT. Plus many of its customers are national chains, so it is has a close relationship with major retailers and restaurants.

For example, its top five clients are Red LobsterWalgreens (NASDAQ:WBA), Family DollarDollar General (NYSE:DG) and FedEx (FDX). Its top 10 clients represent 27% of the company’s total income.

As the U.S. economy continues to expand and consumers continue to spend, this all bodes well for VER.

Up 16% YTD and delivering a whopping 6.7% dividend, this is a great REIT at a great price and at a great time.

9 A-Rated Safety Stocks for a Grossly Oversold Market

Yes, the markets are getting hammered like it’s 2008. But this isn’t because the world is coming to an end, or that the global economic system is about to fail.

This is about transition and risk.

The markets are undergoing a significant amount of transition as most central banks are relinquishing control over monetary policy and letting the markets sort it out. Add to that issue the fact that the Brexit mess is affecting one of the major global currencies.

There’s the fact that the U.S. economy continues to show signs of recovery — job growth is very strong, the participation rate is rising and wages are also increasing. Yet rising interest rates, the trade wars with Europe and China make that footing weaker.

For every bit a good news, there’s the shadow of bad news and the markets have never been a fan of uncertainty.

That’s why now is a great time to check out these nine A-rated safety stocks for a grossly oversold market. They’re highly rated in my Portfolio Grader, and with patience as the watchword now, these great stocks are selling at great prices.

Mr Cooper Group (COOP)

Mr Cooper Group (COOP)

Mr Cooper Group (NASDAQ:COOP) may not be a household name — unless, of course you use it to start your household. It basically acquires companies that are focused on servicing, origination and transaction-based services for single family homes in the U.S. Its two biggest brands are Mr Cooper and Xome. It’s the leading non-bank mortgage servicer in the U.S.

This is one market that has been on both sides of the interest-rate roller coaster. When rates were high, home sales slowed, but when rates started to fall because of fears about the economy, that helped boost home sales and refinancings.

Its recent purchase of IBM’s (NYSE:IBM) Seterus mortgage servicing platform adds $24 billion of mortgages and 300,000 new customers to it rolls. It’s COOP’s second major purchase in 3 months.

Once this bumpy ride smooths, COOP will be well positioned.

Popular (BPOP)

Popular (BPOP)

Popular (NASDAQ:BPOP) is a holding company that operates financial institutions in the U.S., U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Its parent is Banco Popular de Puerto Rico, which was established in 1893.

Popular opened in the Bronx over 50 years ago and now has U.S. branches in New York, New Jersey and South Florida. Given the amount of Puerto Ricans that call the U.S. home, as well as other Latinos that are drawn by the bank’s roots in the Hispanic culture, BPOP offers a unique opportunity to take advantage of the demographic growth in this sector of the economy with an experienced, successful company.

Up 37% in the past year, and still delivering a 2.1% dividend yield, BPOP is doing very well in all this turmoil.

Medical Properties Trust (MPW)

Medical Properties Trust (MPW)

Medical Properties Trust (NYSE:MPW) is the only medical real estate investment trust (REIT) that focuses solely on acute care facilities and hospitals where patients must be admitted by doctors.

Its goal is to blend the best of quality healthcare delivery and cost-effective management by maximizing operations management.

MPW started in 2003 and now sports a nearly $6 billion market cap. What’s more, it was up 17% in the past year, and that doesn’t include its generous 6.2% dividend.

It has recently moved into Europe with a big, multi-billion-dollar deal with a healthcare firm in Germany.

Qualys (QLYS)

Safety Stocks: Qualys (QLYS)

Qualys (NASDAQ:QLYS) has done well in the past year, given the fact that it’s a tech stock.

But most of the credit goes to the fact that it’s a tech stock in the cybersecurity sector, and while that sector may have gotten a bit overpriced, it’s still something that is always in demand.

QLYS focuses on cloud security, which is one of the most in-demand aspects of cybersecurity since the growth in mobility and bandwidth demand have increased substantially. And the introduction of a new generation of data delivery — 5G — will make security even more important.

Also, with a market cap around $2.7 billion, QLYS is a tempting morsel for larger tech firms looking to expand their game in this space without having to build out from scratch.

Axon Enterprise (AAXN)

Axon Enterprise (AAXN)

Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ:AAXN) is the new name for the TASER company, the folks that brought us the stun gun.

If you recall, a few years back there was an alarming number of fatalities linked to use of TASERs by law enforcement and others. Whether it was due to lack of training or abuse, the stain was largely put on the company.

But the name change as well as the company’s diversification into body-worn cameras for law enforcement has built a new line of products that have helped it diversify and regain its reputation as a reliable, non-lethal protection tool for professionals and citizens.

AAXN is up 71% in the past year and there is every reason to believe that kind of growth is achievable moving forward.


Safety Stocks: DSW (DSW)

Source: Shutterstock

DSW (NYSE:DSW), a big-box discount shoe retailer with more than 500 stores in the U.S., had great Q3 earnings and also raised its guidance for Q4. That happened at the beginning of December.

This is one of those brands that actually became stronger during the recession because that lost decade brought people in who weren’t regular customers previously.

There are two types of regular shoppers — the ones who go in like it’s a treasure hunt, looking for bargains on great shoes and the ones that like the fact that there’s a huge selection to choose from.

During slow economic times, everyone is looking for a deal and DSW is one of the beneficiaries. But now as times improve, it has added to its regular shoppers and instead of returning to premium stores, many shoppers choose to stick with DSW.

It’s why the stock is up 20% in the past year and still delivers a 3% dividend.

Evertec (EVTC)

Evertec (NYSE:EVTC) is the leading payment processing company in Latin America. It operates in 26 Latin American companies, including Mexico and the Caribbean.

Financial technology, or “fintech” is a huge force in the way financial institutions are transitioning from the old style of banking, to the new digital style. And this affects every aspect of the business, especially between the financial institutions and the businesses that they support.

And these digital standards are especially important in emerging markets, where a traditional financial infrastructure can be tough to come by.

EVTC is up over 100% in the past year and is still only trading at a P/E of 29. There is plenty of growth left in the tank.

Brinker International (EAT)

Brinker International (NYSE:EAT) owns the Chili’s Grill and Bar and Maggiano’s Little Italy chains. Most of the restaurants are company owned, although Chili’s does franchise some of its properties.

There has been a shift in tastes among customers and these large restaurant chains have begun appealing to new generations of potential diners. Healthier meals, different pricing structures, etc all have been implemented to keep the new breed of diners happy.

Some have had a tough time transitioning, but EAT has not been one of them. Up 15% in the last year, it also delivers a respectable 3.3% dividend.

Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings (AJRD)

Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings (NYSE:AJRD) is a second-tier aerospace and defense contractor. Basically, that means it usually is a subcontractor to the big defense names when it comes to building rockets, propulsion and guidance systems. It also has a long relationship with NASA and other aerospace organizations.

While there is a lot of talk about private aerospace firms entering into the market, the fact is, there is huge potential for the best companies. And given the amount of aerospace work that lies ahead, AJRD will be a major player.

With talk of near-space commercial travel as well as missions to Mars, AJRD will have plenty of work. And the fact that it has been around in various iterations since 1914 shows that it knows how to adapt and thrive.This ‘Overlooked’ Sector Produced the Biggest Winners of the Last Decade

10 Best of the Best Stocks for 2019

Source: Shutterstock

It’s certainly never a dull moment in the markets these days — or anywhere else for that matter. It’s hard to pick the best stocks with all these headlines tugging them in all different directions. The Chinese economy is slowing down to sub-6% growth. Brexit negotiations are in shambles. President Donald Trump’s political troubles are growing. Europe is putting the brakes on quantitative easing.

The markets are understandably having trouble processing it all. One day China-U.S. trade talks are rallying stocks, but the next day, there’s talk of a global recession and stocks are tanking.

This is when you need quality stocks that aren’t wrapped up in all these issues. This when you need stocks that are moving on trends that are beyond much of this market volatility

The 10 best-of-the-best stocks for 2019 that I feature below are the kind of stocks I’m talking about. All are top-rated picks in my Portfolio Grader and will not only be shelter from this storm but great long-term growth companies as well.

Amazon (AMZN)

Best Stocks: Amazon (AMZN)

Source: Shutterstock (NASDAQ:AMZN) should be no surprise at the top of this list.

The U.S. economy is driven by the consumer — about 70% of our economy is consumer driven. And few companies are focused on the consumer like AMZN.

Plus, Amazon has a “growth over profits” philosophy that has served it well, even when analysts had their doubts. It means that AMZN is already laser focused on making money in low-margin businesses and fueling its growth with higher-margin enterprises like its Amazon Web Services cloud services division.

It commands a significant premium, but given its track record through tough times, it’s well deserved.

Netflix (NFLX)

Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) has stuck to its knitting, unlike many of the other FAANG stocks. While it lost nearly 26% in the past three months, NFLX is still up an impressive 42% year to date. This is where the headlines may mislead some investors.

There’s no doubt that FAANGs like Netflix have been hammered. But the fact is, they’re still some of the best performing stocks in the market today.

What’s more, NFLX stock is continuing to grow its subscriber base in high-potential markets like India, where economic growth isn’t as volatile and barriers to entry are lower than in say, China right now.

ConocoPhillips (COP)

ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) is my favorite integrated energy company right now. One key reason is that it’s well diversified across oil and natural gas operations.

While oil has been a victim of overproduction and prices are low, natural gas prices are on the rise. And with winter coming to the Northern Hemisphere, demand is growing in Europe and Asia, where prices are significantly higher than in the U.S.

COP stock recently acquired more natural gas reserves in Canada, so it continues to expand its business in stable countries with hungry markets.

Up 18% year to date, this is solid energy pick that you can count on for the long haul.

Ecopetrol SA (EC)

Best Stocks: Ecopetrol SA (EC)

Source: Shutterstock

Ecopetrol SA (NYSE:EC) is the top Colombian integrated energy company. It has upstream operations — exploration and production — as well as midstream (pipelines) and downstream (refining) divisions for its oil and natural gas reserves.

EC has been operating in Colombia since 1948, but Colombia has had its ups and downs over the decades.

In the past few years, new leadership has brought its long-standing civil war to an end and the drug cartels are significantly less influential. This has meant that the economy is recovering and the middle class is expanding.

EC is a stable energy player in South America, delivering strong growth and a solid 3.5% dividend.

Abiomed (ABMD)

Best Stocks: Abiomed (ABMD)

Source: Shutterstock

Abiomed (NASDAQ:ABMD) is part of the medical device megatrend that is underway across the globe.

ABMD makes the world’s smallest heart pump. It was started by the doctor who invented the first artificial heart.

Today, it has a $14 billion market cap and is gaining business at a rapid pace because it’s a much better alternative to costly surgery and other procedures. When healthcare costs continue to rise, it’s companies like ABMD that benefit the most.

That explains why, in this tough market, ABMD is up 71% year to date. And there’s still plenty of headroom left.

Veeva Systems (VEEV)

Best Stocks: Veeva Systems (VEEV)

Source: Shutterstock

Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) is a cloud provider that operates in a niche space — life sciences.

While you may think about the cloud as simply some remote storage facility that allows people to access information from anywhere, it’s more complex and nuanced than that. It has tiers of access and layers of analytics as well as customer resource management tools and productivity applications. And few sectors need a specialized cloud solution more than life sciences.

With all the regulations, the drug approval process and managing pipelines, as well as research, distribution and marketing, a focused and cohesive system built around these needs is very valuable.

That’s why VEEV has taken off in recent years. It’s up 67% year to date and has plenty of growth left.

China Petroleum & Chemical (SNP)

Best Stocks: China Petroleum & Chemical (SNP)

Source: Shutterstock

China Petroleum & Chemical Corp (NYSE:SNP), or as it’s better known, Sinopec, is China’s leading energy company and one of the top five energy companies in the world.

That’s not bad for a company that isn’t even 18 years old at this point.

Obviously, energy is a key component to the world’s second-largest economy’s economic growth. And it needs a secure source of oil and natural gas because relying on OPEC can get dicey, given the power and influence of the U.S. in the Middle East.

Sinopec is the tip of the spear for China’s energy independence. And there’s little reason to think that Sinopec’s importance is likely to fade in coming years. As a matter of fact, China’s moves into the South China Sea would suggest that energy exploration and production efforts are growing.

Up a respectable 13% year to date, it also throws off an impressive 5.6% dividend.

CenturyLink (CTL)

Best Stocks: CenturyLink (CTL)

Source: Shutterstock

CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) is a telecom provider that has been around since 1930.

It’s not one of the major players and is more of a player in smaller markets where it can hold sway in rural communities and small towns. It considers itself the second-largest U.S. communications company to global enterprise providers. Basically, that means it’s a major player in the enterprise level marketplace. And this is the focus of the business moving forward.

The consumer market is losing its allure, especially as the mobile age takes over. CTL is now focused on finding its most valuable revenue sources and cutting its low- and no-margin businesses.

At worst, CTL is a good takeover play. At best, there’s a lot of growth and a solid 12.6% dividend to buy your patience.

Square (SQ)

Best Stocks: Square (SQ)

Source: Via Square

Square (NYSE:SQ) would be a fourth grader if it was a human. Yet Square is already a company with a $26 billion market cap and global reach.

SQ stock is up 81% year to date.

That’s a lot of success in just a few years. Granted, Square’s payment processing solutions were up and running before the company went public. And while SQ stock is firing on all cylinders, the financial industry has also started to take its fintech game to the next level, turning mobile banking into a significant force.

The crazy thing is, that its 81% return this year also includes a 30% slide in its stock price during the last three months.

Given the fact that SQ is a game-changer for small- and medium-sized business and there is a lot of untapped growth in these sectors, it is in a great position for the unfolding fintech evolution.

Shopify (SHOP)

Shopify (NASDAQ:SHOP) is a major player in helping small and medium-sized businesses grow and succeed online. It not only helps people build out their sites, but it also delivers tools to help people manage inventory, develop marketing, track payments and track shipping.

It’s an all-in-one small business system in the cloud.

This niche is growing very quickly as people are looking for extra income, exploring turning a hobby into a business or looking to grow the market for their existing business.

At this point, there are more than 600,000 businesses powered by SHOP that are doing more than $82 billion in sales.

The stock is up 45% year to date and has weathered the stormy market. That should continue for years to come.

The 10 Best Stocks to Buy Right Now

Source: Shutterstock

Interest rates are below the magic 3% number, earnings are strong, unemployment is low and the economy just came off its best quarter in 4 years.

Can it get any better?

Maybe. But if it even stays close to these bullish indicators, stocks will continue to climb. And if the broad market doesn’t cooperate, there are still sectors and specific companies that will continue to rally.

Below are the 10 best stocks to buy right now, regardless of a secular market rally or a more stock-focused run. These stocks have what it takes to keep their share prices on the rise for years to come.

There are always winners, even in tough markets. And these stocks typify the kind of companies that are riding long-term trends (or a shift in trends) and have what it takes to succeed in these dynamic times.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Amazon (AMZN)

Source: Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is pretty much a given on this list. And it’s not just about its e-commerce empire. There are plenty of stats that show some of the major retailers are still significantly larger. It’s the fact that AMZN continues to dump its growing revenue back into its businesses. It’s not content to build up a cash hoard or dole out a symbolic dividend.

The case for Amazon grows and grows. It’s the leading cloud business in the world. It owns a grocery store chain. It’s a major entertainment company. It’s looking to get into the prescription drug business. It has its eye on building out its own logistics enterprise to support its e-commerce.

This is what makes AMZN a great stock now, and for many years to come.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Texas Pacific Land Trust (TPL)

Source: Shutterstock

Texas Pacific Land Trust (NYSE: TPL) was created in 1888, from the reorganization of the Texas and Pacific Railway.

Basically, the trust received 3.5 million acres of land from the railroad and is now one of the largest landholder in Texas with about 888,000 acres of land in 18 counties that it manages.

This means TPL manages oil, gas, mineral and water rights on all this property as well as choosing what it wants to sell or lease. With some of the most productive shale properties this is a big deal.

Plus, there are a lot of companies moving to Texas, which provides even more development opportunities.

TPL stock is up 80% year to date and this trend is certainly TPL’s friend.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Abiomed (ABMD)

Source: Shutterstock

ABIOMED Inc (NASDAQ: ABMD) has a $16 billion market cap, but it’s been around since the 1980s.

As a matter of fact, the founders of ABMD invented the first artificial heart. And today, the company does one thing — the Impella brand of artificial heart valve.

Now, name brand medical equipment isn’t exactly like name brand pharmaceuticals. You don’t ask your doctor what brand of valve you’re getting — if you even have the opportunity to ask.

And there are plenty of larger medical equipment companies that have a heart-pump division. But ABMD focuses on one thing. And it has a global reputation. It’s already very popular in Germany and Japan as well as the U.S.

ABMD continues to grow — up 102% year to date — and the graying of the developed world’s population plays to its growth. It could also be a very attractive acquisition for a bigger firm.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Netflix (NFLX)

Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) is one of the famed FANG stocks. And along with AMZN, it makes our top 10 list.

This may be surprising given the fact that NFLX recently announced it missed its projected new subscriber numbers for the quarter by almost 1 million subscribers.

But then again, NFLX stock is trading at a PE of 157. That’s higher than AMZN’s. And it was even higher before the selloff.

The simple fact is, NFLX still has plenty of the world to conquer and its focus on content around the globe will be an asset it can monetize long after it subscribes everyone it possibly can to its services.

Right now, its big push is in India, where there are over 1 billion people. It has already started developing original content for the country and is hoping to break through in coming quarters.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: SVB Financial (SIVB)

SVB Financial Group (NASDAQ: SIVB) is an interesting new iteration of traditional banks.

Say you have a small bank where most of your customers come from Silicon Valley and the tech start-up culture (and money). You get depositors that are looking for opportunities in start-ups and you have cash to lend to these small businesses.

Plus, your customers are the people who have track records of successfully starting new firms. It’s like building a private investment bank focused on a specific sector.

SIVB is now expanding its operation up the West Coast to Washington state, where a similar culture exists and to other tech cities around the country.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Arista Networks (ANET)

Arista Networks Inc (NYSE: ANET) was on quite a roll for a while. While year to date it has managed about an 11% gain, for the past 12 months it has delivered a 52% return to its investors.

ANET is cloud computing company that has become a major competitor to some of the bigger players in the networking and storage space. And with a $20 billion market cap, ANET is big enough to grow on its own, or it could be an acquisition target for one of its big competitors or a big tech firm looking to buy a spot in the space.

The problem with the legacy players in the space is they can’t reinvent the systems they already have in place. ANET provides much cleaner and less cumbersome solutions because it doesn’t have to worry about all the legacy hardware it needs to support and transition.

This slow time is a good time to get in for the long run.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Ligand Pharmaceuticals (LGND)

Source: Shutterstock

Ligand Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: LGND) is a new breed of pharmaceutical company.

In the old days, a biotech or pharmaceutical company would have an R&D division looking for new drugs, a team that would do early-stage development and reformulation, a team for late-stage development, another for testing and trials, and another for commercialization or partnering strategies.

But as the industry got bigger, all these divisions became expensive and costly to manage. And things got lost in the pipeline.

LGND focuses on the discovery, early-stage development, reformulation and partnering. That keeps it laser focused and cuts out all that work for its partners who handle the backend.

And given LGND stock is up 82% in the past year, this strategy is not only working, but it has a lot of believers.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Inogen (INGN)

Inogen Inc (NASDAQ: INGN) makes portable oxygen concentrators. While that doesn’t seem like it’s a big business, it has given INGN a $4 billion market cap as one of the leaders in the sector.

Traditionally, people with breathing issues have had to haul around oxygen tanks. They’re really heavy and aren’t exactly easy to get around with, especially for people that are older and less agile than they used to be.

It’s an inelegant and difficult solution to the problem. INGN’s concentrators are game-changers. They can be easily carried around and home units are also easily moved.

They basically convert the ambient air into concentrated oxygen, so you don’t have to haul a tank around. You just charge the unit and go.

As America grays, this type of equipment has growth path for decades to come. Its up 130% in the past 12 months and 75% year to date.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Medifast (MED)

Medifast Inc (NYSE:MED) is part of one of the hottest trends out there that doesn’t have to do with technology — prepackaged health and nutritional foods.

You’ve heard of Weight Watchers (NYSE:WTW) and Jenny Craig. Well Medifast has been around a long time as well, and it’s starting its own growth trend, even without Oprah.

MED stock is up a whopping 405% in the past 12 months and 207% year to date.

And the crazy thing is, you don’t really hear about this stock. What’s more, after all that massive growth, the stock is still trading at a PE of 76, half of that of NFLX or AMZN.

Best Stocks to Buy Now: Micron (MU)

It Is Time to Buy MU Stock on Weakness

Micron Technology (NASDAQ: MU) is memory maker. And I don’t mean that it makes life memorable. It makes memory chips, especially the new generation of flash memory chips.

Certainly there are other bigger chipmakers that make memory chips and much more. But MU is focused on this major sector. And is leveraged to its growth.

Many are coming to believe that this sector’s cyclical nature has been uprooted by the fact that the mobility revolution as well as the advent of cloud computing, Big Data, augmented/virtual reality and the Internet of Things. Demand has become less cyclical and more of a constant, which will have a significant effect on MU, as a leader in this sector.

MU stock is up almost 90% in the past year and 28% year to date. And this is with some in the industry still thinking the cyclical nature of the past will somehow reassert itself. Don’t count on it.

As you well know, it only takes a handful of stocks to make — or break — your portfolio.

The economic turmoil of the past decade has drained investors’ portfolios, leaving many to stay in the work force well into their “Golden Years,” and has left those already in retirement wondering if there will be enough money at the end of the day.

That’s why I’ve put together this collection of my top eight stocks you should own now and hold for the long term.

Buy now for earnings growth and profits in the year ahead and hang onto them because they represent some of the best long-term stocks in the market today.

Top Growth Stocks: IPG Photonics (IPGP)

IPG Photonics (NASDAQ:IPGP) is the world’s leading provider of high-power fiber lasers. These lasers are used in a variety of different devices and applications, ranging from materials processing to broadband internet to medical pumps.

The bottom line is, the demand for fiber optic laser technology is a growth industry for a very long time, and IPGP is one of the major players.

Fiber lasers are the next generation of laser technology and offer many advantages over traditional lasers. They’re more energy efficient, they’re easier to maintain and they last longer.

As companies upgrade their current technologies with fiber-laser applications, IPG Photonics’ sales and earnings continue to soar.

In March IPGP entered the S&P 500, which is a big deal because every index fund linked to S&P 500 performance now needs to own the stock.

But IPGP stock has been up and down on tariff talk, so it’s a great time to get in.

Top Growth Stocks: Ferrari (RACE)

Ferrari NV (NASDAQ:RACE) is the world-renowned Italian sports car maker. Founded by Enzo Ferrari, the company developed and built its first sports car back in the late 1940s.

Today, Ferrari offers seven vehicle models, including four sports cars (488 GTB, 488 Spider, F12 Berlinetta and special series F12 Tour de France) and three GT cars (California T, FF and GTC4Lusso). The company also plans to replace the F12 Berlinetta with the 812 Superfast coupe.

Demand for its cars continues to rise and its line of clothing and accessories is also growing at a brisk pack.

Ferrari expects to ship more than 9,000 vehicles in 2018 and is looking for revenues of 3.4 billion euros. Company management also noted that it expects to double core earnings to 2 billion euros ($2.5 billion) by 2022.

RACE stock is up nearly 30% year to date, so none of this trade war talk or political turmoil in Italian politics is slowing its performance.

Top Growth Stocks: Weibo (WB)

Known as “China’s answer to Twitter,” Weibo (NASDAQ:WB) is a social media company that allows Chinese users to express themselves, connect with others, discover Chinese-language content and use push notifications on their mobile devices.

While its Twitter of China description was pretty accurate in its early days, now it’s much more diversified — it’s more like the Facebook of China at this point.

Weibo now offers online games and mobile apps that have created a very complete social media experience in a young, enthusiastic consumer demographic.

It’s no surprise then that WB has experienced tremendous growth since its launch in 2010, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Trade war talk has soured the market on WB, but that’s to our advantage. WB has enormous potential growth in China and Asia, without any need to look to the U.S.

Top Growth Stocks: Arista Networks (ANET)

Top Growth Stocks: Arista Networks (ANET)

Based in San Jose, California, Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) provides cloud networking solutions to 4,000 customers across five continents.

Arista specializes in high-speed network switches that enable cloud service providers, internet companies and data centers to run faster networks. Arista also provides technical support, hardware repair and parts replacement.

When it comes to the lucrative high-speed network switches market, Arista Networks goes toe-to-toe with Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO). But while its larger competitor is struggling to grow sales and earnings, Arista Networks is growing by leaps and bounds.

Part of ANET’s competitive advantage is that it isn’t tied down to legacy systems like CSCO is. Its equipment is next generation, built for the next iteration in networking and cloud services.

It has had a bumpy ride in 2018, but this is a long-term player with huge potential. It is a force in crucial megatrend sectors that will grow regardless of economic ups and downs.

Top Growth Stocks: Nvidia (NVDA)

Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is a leading computer graphics company, making graphic processing units (GPUs) for consumers and businesses.

These GPUs enhance the processing capability of its users’ computers.

The company has been in the computer graphics business for more than two decades — it invented the GPU in 1999 — so it is a well-established player.

In a recent earnings report, company management noted that NVDA “achieved another record quarter, capping an excellent year.” The fact is, this could be almost any quarter since 2016.

If you look at NVDA’s historic price chart, you can see that the stock goes parabolic in 2016. That’s when the mobility trend took off and enabled all the sectors that NVDA has come to dominate: cloud, augmented reality, virtual reality, Internet of Things, Big Data, smart devices, etc.

NVDA is to the future of computing what Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN)has become to ecommerce.

Top Growth Stocks: Sociedad Quimica Y Minera de Chile (SQM)

Sociedad Quimica Y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM), or the Chemical & Mining Co. of Chile, is the largest producer of specialty plant nutrients, lithium and derivatives, iodine and derivatives, industrial chemicals and potassium in the world.

Not surprisingly, given that list of materials, its products have a range of uses.

Its Specialty Plant Nutrition division provides nutrients and fertilizers to boost crop output. Increasing productivity is crucial to farmers, especially when prices (and margins) are low.

Its Iodine division offers derivatives that are used in medical and industrial applications, as well as in antiseptics, disinfectants and polarizing films for LCDs.

Its Lithium division provides lithium carbonates for batteries, heat-resistant glass, air conditioning chemicals and more. With electric and hybrid vehicle demand growing, consistent lithium supplies are crucial.

Its Industrials Chemicals division produces industrial nitrates that are used to manufacture glass and explosives.

Its Potassium division focuses on the sales of two potassium fertilizers. Trade issues have discounted the stock and make it a bargain long-term investment now.

UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) is the largest single health carrier in the United States. It serves more than 85 million people worldwide and is a parent company to six businesses, including UnitedHealthcare — health insurance that offers policies to businesses and individuals, including Medicare and Medicaid policies.

Its other main branch, Optum, administers everything from mental health and substance-abuse programs to mail-order pharmaceuticals.

While many drug store stocks were rocked by the news that Amazon has now entered the pharmacy business, UNH has been relatively undisturbed because of its integrated strategy.

Looking ahead to full-year 2018, the healthcare giant is targeting adjusted earnings between $12.30 and $12.60 per share, which is a 22% to 25% year-over-year increase and up from its previous guidance of $10.55 to $10.85 per share.

Additionally, cash flows from operations are expected to be in a range between $15 billion and $15.5 billion, and UnitedHealth Group is calling for total revenues between $223 billion and $225 billion.

Top Growth Stocks: Intuitive Surgical (ISRG)

Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG) is in a business that sounds like it comes straight from a science-fiction novel: Surgical robotics.

However, luckily for patients around the world, this revolutionary technology is not only possible, it is becoming more and more integrated into everyday hospital use.

Intuitive Surgical got its big break in 1999 when it introduced the da Vinci surgical system. Complete with a surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart, a 3-D vision system and wrist instruments, this system allows doctors to perform minimally invasive surgery with enhanced dexterity, precision and control.

In the end, this technology benefits the patients, who usually experience less pain, a shortened hospital stay, fewer infections and less scarring.

Nearly 20 years later, the company has developed several models of this surgical system and even offers a training program that brings surgeons up to speed on this technology.

This system has steadily caught on in the healthcare industry; last year alone, the company’s systems were used in 650,000 procedures around the world.

ISRG stock is up more than 30% so far this year, but that is still just the beginning for this next generation healthcare company.

10 Little-Known Stocks That Could Be Huge

Source: Shutterstock

The 10-year U.S. Treasury has crossed the rubicon. It is now flashing a yield that is over the 3% mark. What befalls the economy when that happens? Recession? Correction? A grinding bear market?

Nope. Nothing really. It is more a measure of inflation and economic growth, and far more psychological than it is a real indicator of something significant.

But the kernel of truth that it does represent is a new stage of growth in the economy. The big, safe stocks will keep chugging along, but smaller companies can grow faster than big ones in a faster-paced economy.

That means asset managers — and smart individual investors — will start moving money into small- and mid-cap stocks to take advantage of accelerating growth.

Below are 10 little-known stocks that could be huge in coming years, and now is a good time to establish a foothold, while they’re still cheap and relatively undiscovered. Just remember, these stocks will be volatile, so don’t expect a smooth ride.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Mastech Digital (MHH)

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Mastech Digital (MHH)

Mastech Digital Inc (NYSEAMERICAN:MHH) is up 67% year to date and has a market cap of a mere $92 million.

MHH is a 21st century version of a temp firm. It’s a temp firm to IT personnel.

The thing is, millennials and Gen Zers are not looking to be the kind of 9-5 employees that previous generations considered the way to go about a career position.

Coders, devs, systems admins, etc. don’t see systems in a 9-5 world. The tech world is 24/7, so when they work is more flexible and not as predictable. They work around the tech. And that makes Mastech a great draw for talent as well as clients. Plus, many of these jobs are high paying, so Mastech has great margins, since it’s not trying to sell desk jockeys or maintenance workers.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Summit State Bank (SSBI)

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Summit State Bank (SSBI)

Summit State Bank (NASDAQ:SSBI) is a small commercial bank headquartered in Santa Rosa, CA, which is just north of Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

When the economy starts to expand, it creates more opportunities for entrepreneurs to strike out on their own. And there are few sectors where this trend is more reliable than tech.

As a bank focused on getting involved in small and medium-sized businesses, SSBI should see a lot of business in coming quarters. Already this year, SSBI stock is up more than 20% and it’s still delivering a 3.1% dividend on top of that.

And as rates rise, that gives SSBI more ability to generate higher profits between what it borrows at and what it lends at.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Northern Technologies (NTIC)

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Northern Technologies (NTIC)

Northern Technologies International Corporation(NASDAQ:NTIC) is one of those companies that has built a strong reputation in the industries it serves but is such a niche player, many investors outside these industries don’t know it exists.

And as a firm with a $144 million market cap, it also has gotten lost in the big-cap buying that has dominated the markets for so long.

But it deserves its day in the sun, which has arrived.

Founded in 1970, NTIC specializes in corrosion inhibiting products and corrosion management solutions, predominantly for the oil and gas business. Think about keeping tank farms rust free, or keeping equipment on drilling platforms — either on land or offshore — operational and free of rust. It’s a big job, and NTIC is one of the industry leaders.

As U.S. energy production rises, so will the fortunes of NTIC.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Synalloy (SYNL)


Synalloy Corp (NASDAQ:SYNL) makes stainless steel and carbon steel piping as well as specialty chemicals. That alone isn’t going to get many heartbeats racing.

However, when you add to this description that it specializes in the oil and gas industry and has been a player there since 1945, your pulse may quicken a bit.

Its chemicals are used to maintain tank farms as well as water storage containers (think fracking wastewater). Its pipes are in demand on rigs, in storage farms and at fracking operations.

As the U.S. energy industry starts to build, so will the opportunities for SYNL.

Up almost 39% year to date, with a $163 million market cap, there’s still plenty of growth left here.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Baycom (BCML)

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Baycom (BCML)

BayCom Corp (NASDAQ:BCML) is a $1.2 billion bank that is located just outside San Francisco, in Walnut Creek, CA. After trading over the counter for a while, in late April it IPO’d on NASDAQ.

The IPO brought in an additional $50 million and it currently trades with a market cap around $240 million.

BCML has been on an acquisition run of late and it looks like it’s focusing on buying local banks in tech-centric areas. This would fit into the new strategy in banking where some of these boutique banks focus on helping get small and medium-sized business up and running instead losing this business to VCs.

Since this is a new iteration of BCML stock, the bet here is that its past success will be multiplied now that it has more capital access.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy:Sinovac (SVA)

Little-Known Stocks to Buy:Sinovac (SVA)

Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (NASDAQ:SVA) is a native Chinese biotech company that is focused on the Chinese market, and its key drugs are vaccines.

This is interesting on two fronts. First, vaccines are a good way for Chinese firms to enter into the pharmaceutical business because they are highly beneficial and if made locally, can be very cost effective.

For a nation that is looking to move from developing nation status to developed nation status, a healthy population and a solid healthcare system is an important factor.

Given this, SVA will get support from the government as it builds its expertise and reputation. What’s more, vaccines are proving to be highly effective in treating certain diseases as well as preventing them. This next-generation of vaccines could have significant potential.

But for now, the Chinese demand for improved native healthcare solutions is a key driver.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Legacy Resources (LGCY)

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Legacy Resources (LGCY)

Legacy Resources LP (NASDAQ:LGCY) is an oil and gas limited partnership that focuses on exploration and production of properties in Texas, the Rocky Mountains and mid-continent fields.

The stock has risen from around $1 a share in the past year to about $8 today. And its market cap is almost $650 million at this point.

Just remember, LGCY is leveraged to the price of oil and natural gas. This is fundamentally a leveraged bet on energy prices. Also, the Donald Trump administration has talked about changing the rules related to limited partnerships, which may affect LGCY’s 7.2% dividend.

But at this point, with the summer driving season upon us, this one looks like it has some legs left, especially if tensions in the Middle East continue to run high.

Profire Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:PFIE) is a niche player in the oil and natural gas sector. And as this sector makes its resurgence along with the global economy, its business is ready to grow.

As a matter of fact, PFIE stock is already up 140% so far this year.

Profire specializes in burner management. In the oil and natural gas industry, various equipment like line heaters, separators, dehydrators and amine reboilers are used to make and transport petrochemicals. These applications require heat, and that’s where PFIE products come into play.

Founded in Canada, it has reach across the entire North American energy patch. And as more pipelines and wellheads open up, so will PFIE’s business.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Xcerra (XCRA)

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: Xcerra (XCRA)

Xcerra Corp (NASDAQ:XCRA) is fundamentally in the business of making and operating semiconductor testing equipment.

While this has been a traditionally cyclical market, the fact is, now that more and more “dumb” devices are now becoming “smart,” chipmakers are able to create longer tails on their chip production. That makes the lag between new generations of chips shorter and provides more stability for companies like XCRA.

Also, since there are growing uses for chips, XCRA is in a much better position than big chipmakers since they are constantly under pressure to innovate to keep up with current technological demands, whereas XCRA simply needs to make sure its diagnostic and performance equipment can deliver the results clients are looking for.

Up  38% this year, and sporting a $745 million market cap, this one could be moving up to the mid-cap sector pretty soon.

Little-Known Stocks to Buy: SunRun (RUN)

SunRun Inc (NASDAQ:RUN) is a solar company that focuses on residential rooftop solar.

Alternative energy stocks have been up and down since the Trump administration has taken office. When subsidies and government support were coming apart and energy was put into reviving fossil fuel industries, renewables were under threat.

But recent tariff talk, especially regarding China, has given a boost to renewables again. China has been dumping solar panels on the U.S. market, hurting domestic producers.

Also, solar has hit an inflection point, and many companies are building in financing options for solar panels and more and more consumers are seeing the advantages of energy savings and independence.

Up more than 80% year to date, and carrying a respectable $1.2 billion market cap, RUN is a good choice in this growth sector.
