Noteworthy stocks to watch in 2019

The unstable global economy and the deteriorating investor sentiment is pushing for diversification and better risk management. Let’s have a look at which stocks offer the best exposure in the markets while keeping risks low

Noteworthy stocks to watch in 2019

The U.S economy is outperforming all other developed economies in the global market and the dollar is soaring even amid the trade wars and political tensions across the country. Following the dollar’s highs, the U.S stocks and equities market is running with impressive gains across several industries.

While the exciting new trend of the day dictates, in part, where investors will move to make their buys, sometimes it pays to be patient and follow stocks in companies that are performing well and have proved to offer solid returns over the long-term.

Stocks

Amazon (AMZN)

The ecommerce giant has revolutionized the retail industry and its ever-encroaching market share has motivated traditional retail businesses to adopt their own strategies in order to attract customers to their product.

Amazon stocks, however, have stuttered after the recent earnings announcement and the price dropped by at least 4%. Investors weren’t really expecting a negative report, but this presents an opportunity to buy the stock for cheap before it starts to recover. This especially rings true since Amazon has had a remarkable performance across the board. Revenue records and sales are on the rise but apparently Amazon doesn’t care enough to meet quarterly reports and instead focuses on long-term sustained growth.

 

Coca Cola (KO)

Unlike Amazon, Coca Cola managed to exceed second quarter expectations with its earnings report and its stocks have surged as a result. In fact, if you are looking at Coca Cola’s year-to-date performance you will notice a 15% increase since January. Currently trading at the $54 level, the beverage company’s stock should be in a shortlist for your risk-adjusted portfolio.

 

Facebook (FB)

Facebook’s stock is comfortably floating around the $195 level but if we take a look at larger time frames, we can see that the social media colossus is probably outperforming everyone this year by quite a large margin with no signs of slowing down.

The year-to-date chart shows an astounding 44% gain and if the price manages to cross the all time high of $218, set in July 2018, the sky is the limit. Facebook is undoubtedly one of the year’s best stocks to hold.

Even amid the privacy concerns, Facebook has managed to come out on top this year and the company’s very own and highly anticipated Libra cryptocurrency is set to launch soon. The coin will likely contribute to even more activity on Facebook’s servers and investors should be waiting eagerly for the release announcement.

 

Groupon (GRPN)

The company provides discounts for retailers and which consumers can access through Groupon’s platform. Therefore, Groupon serves as an advertisement platform, facilitating sales and generating interest for other businesses.

Groupon may prove to be a sleeper stock worthy of investors’ attention but unfortunately it doesn’t appear to be able to show consistency in its performance. The year-to-date chart shows a 6% gain bringing the price at $3.46, but there’s too much volatility for a clear outlook. Apparently, there is demand for the product from frugal shoppers, but increased competition since the company’s IPO has taken a toll on revenues.
