Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    At the time of the financial crisis, American International Group (NYSE:AIG) was the world’s largest insurance company. Unfortunately, losses on its mortgage-related investments and some other assets led to major liquidity concerns by the fall of 2018, and the company’s survival was questionable. It was ultimately decided that AIG was “too big to fail,” so the federal government authorized a series of massive credit lines to keep the company afloat.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2021

The tired old “Sell in May and Go Away” didn’t ring true this year. In fact, with the return of volatility to the market (a good thing), it looks like we’re set for a move up.

The S&P 500 eked out a 2.2% gain for the month of May, which is about the same as the previous year. Even more interesting, although I do not profess to be a wiggle reader, it does appear that market volatility has resulted in the market putting what appears to be a double bottom in place. Typically, a double bottom is a bullish signal.

Whether we have the beginning of a summer rally or not remains to be seen. However, market volatility has created some compelling price opportunities in more stocks than you would

think. Here are three of my favorite high-quality names:

B&G Foods (NYSE: BGS) – Look in your pantry or your fridge or your freezer, there’s a better than 50% chance you got a couple of this company’s brands on the shelf. This $28 billion packaged food firm has been quietly acquiring old brands and breathing new and profitable life into them. Reviving stalwarts, such as Ortega, Cream of Wheat and Green Giant, and making headway with progressive, younger brands such as Skinny Girl and Pirate’s Booty (which my 16-year-old seems to live off), the company pulled in $1.6 billion in annual revenue last year while delivering a mind-boggling 24.7% return on equity. While officially a consumer staple stock, B&G is in growth mode through acquisition as displayed through its superior ROE. Shares trade at a 31% discount to their 52-week high. The stock trades at $28 (a 31with a forward PE of 13.41 and a compelling 6.78% dividend yield.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2021: Netflix, Inc.(NFLX)

Its members can play, pause and resume watching, without commercials or commitments. Additionally, in the United States, the Company’s members can receive DVDs to their homes.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Tilson cited the example of when he bought shares of Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) near multiyear lows. As the stock climbed, he kept taking profits and ended up exiting out of his position far too early. Had he simply let his winner ride, he’d have been up more than 50 times on his original purchase.

  • [By ]

    With major S&P 500 companies from Facebook (Nasdaq: FB) to Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) now reassigned, the change is simply too big to be ignored. That goes for passive investors — ones who rely on an index-tracking approach — and active investors like us who frequently screen sectors and indices for ideas. 

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Now, here’s a closer look at today’s Money Morning insight, the most important market events, and stocks to watch.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Today, investors will watch earnings season kick into high gear. A busy day of reports started today with a solid one from UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH). The health insurance giant’s stock could jump up to 3% after topping Wall Street expectations, while Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) could gain another 2% thanks to a solid report.
    The U.S. Federal Reserve could hold interest rates in place until late 2020, according to one prominent member of the central bank. On Monday, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said that the Fed can hold off on raising rates until around the election. Evans said that holding off will help “support the inflation outlook.” Keep a close eye on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), whose shares are dancing with the $200 level. With Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) set to report earnings, Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) launching its own streaming service, and Hulu losing a major investor, all eyes are on Tim Cook’s company and its plans to enter the highly competitive content wars. Last week, AAPL stock received a price target upgrade from Wedbush, $215 to $225 per share. But if you’ve been following us, you’d know that $225 is our long-term outlook for one of the world’s top companies.
    Stocks to Watch Today: NFLX, DIS, CMCSA, T, CSX
    Earnings season is in full swing, and investors will keep an eye out later for Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX). The global streaming giant reports earnings today. Prior to its earnings report, Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) upgraded its stance from a “Hold” to a “Buy” and expects stronger subscriber growth on top of higher monthly subscription costs. The German bank set a price target of $400 per share. NFLX stock is up 30% so far this year, but the stock faces increasing competition from a variety of challengers.
