Franco-Nevada rose back above a 100.80 cup-with-handle base, a day after rebounding from its 50-day line. Franco-Nevada isn't a gold miner but profits from royalties from interests in mines. EPS and revenue growth has accelerated for 3 straight quarters, especially the last one. RS line not especially strong.
Franco-Nevada Corporation is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of US$0.25 per share. The dividend will be paid on March 26, 2020 to shareholders of record on March 12, 2020 (the "Record Date"). The Canadian dollar equivalent is to be determined based on the daily average rate posted by the Bank of Canada on the Record Date. Under Canadian tax legislation, Canadian resident individuals who receive "eligible dividends" are entitled to an enhanced gross-up and dividend tax credit on such dividends.
Volatility has been the watchword for the past week as the Chinese outbreak of coronavirus dominated headlines.The real issue here is less the death toll (which is not insignificant) but the challenges it brings at all levels of the second-largest economy in the world.Remember, China has factories that many other nations -- and their corporations -- rely on to build things for them. These factories are currently shut down because workers have been quarantined. Shoppers aren't shopping. Transporters aren't transporting.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis also has the threat of overwhelming the healthcare system in China and creating issues beyond China now that second generation cases have been discovered in other countries. That means people are contracting the virus that weren't in Wuhan.Heightened insecurity is what the market dislikes the most. So it makes sense to look for stocks now that can see past current market issues and have their sights set on a longer term set of goals. * 7 Under-the-Radar European Stocks to Buy for 2020 In my Portfolio Grader, the stock-picking system I use to find Growth Investor recommendations, these 7 large cap darlings to buy are all A-rated and can ease your mind in troubling times. Large-Cap Stocks to Buy: Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG)Source: Northfoto / Shutterstock.com Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG) has made quite a comeback from lows a few years ago when it was dealing with supply chain and quality control issues. Combined with stubborn management that continued to whistle past the graveyard, these issues were very troubling.But Chipotle leadership has finally pivoted and found a way back. Quality control issues have faded and its new menu items show that it's trying to understand its customers' desires even more than customizing every meal for them.Its focus on freshness and healthy options was timely and it once again looks like a company that is regaining a leadership role in the fast casual sector.CMG stock certainly reflects that. It's up nearly 30% for us at Growth Investor just since April. It's a bit expensive here, but it's US-focused and US consumers are doing well. That deserves a premium when you're a customer focused as Chipotle is at this point. Heico Corp (HEI)Source: Shutterstock Heico Corp (NYSE:HEI) isn't a household name. But it's been doing the same thing (for the most part) since 1957.And right now, it's in one of the hottest industries around - defense and aerospace technologies.While we hope that the world finally settles down and border conflicts and ambitious and/or spiteful leaders disappear, that isn't the case. Trouble is just as iterative as peace, yet it is far more disruptive.Russia is back on the move. China is expanding its power. Iran, India, Pakistan and North Korea are restive.And now there's space. A new Space Force has been established and the race for space dominance is on as well. Heico is one of the key players in helping everything from helicopters to spacecraft get there and back safely. * 7 Under-the-Radar European Stocks to Buy for 2020 Heico stock is up 45% in the past year, but there's still plenty of room for growth as the world reaches into the stars. Leidos Holdings (LDOS)Source: Shutterstock Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) is another 'insider' company that started its journey as a contract research arm of the US government. It was formerly known as SAIC until 2013.This firm has a broad base of research project with the government today. But its most important growth piece now is its work with the military and intelligence communities.In mid-December, it purchased research firm Dynetics for $1.7 billion. This further builds Leidos' focus on the aerospace sector and is a pretty easy assimilation since they both have similar skill sets. It consolidates their customer base under one roof without significant overlap.Because of its 50-year relationship with the Pentagon and the wider intelligence community, LDOS is well positioned for the next phase of growth that is just beginning.That's why the stock is up 75% in the past 12 months and still trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of 22. I just recommended LDOS in Growth Investor and am looking for continued strength going forward. Franco-Nevada Corp (FNV)Source: Shutterstock Franco-Nevada Corp (NYSE:FNV) is one of the more interesting ways to play gold.As you have seen over the past year, gold can lie dormant for a while and then take off. But in the meantime, you may be sitting on an asset that doesn't do anything for years.And that's especially true of the mining companies. Their stock prices are leveraged to the price of gold. That means when gold goes up, their share prices soar, and when it drops, they plummet.It's pretty volatile, especially since gold is typically a hedge position against the broader stock market.FNV is unique because it doesn't own gold or mining operations. It owns the properties that miners use and collects royalties on what they find and rents on the properties. It's like a gold real estate investment trust (REIT). * 7 Under-the-Radar European Stocks to Buy for 2020 That keeps the volatility lower than most stocks in the sector and provides some regular income as well. The stock is up 44% in the past year, so the dividend is running at 0.9%, but if you're looking for a gold hedge, this is a pragmatic choice. Koninklijke Philips (PHG)Source: JPstock / Shutterstock.com Koninklijke Philips NV (NYSE:PHG) is a Dutch company that has been around since 1891. Think of it as the Netherlands version of what General Electric (NYSE: GE) used to be about 30 years ago.It makes lightbulbs, appliances, healthcare equipment, consumer electronics and a host of other products. Do you use a Sonicare electric toothbrush? That's a Philips brand.And its brand is global. Philips has a decent piece of the US market, but its real presence is in Europe and into Asia, Africa and South America.Its size and the fact that it makes products for the middle and lower end of the market, as well as products like lighting that everyone buys, make this a rock-solid firm in good or bad times. It's the kind of business model that shows up well in my stock-picking system.That's how you end up a successful consumer-facing company after 129 years.This isn't a get-rich-quick stock; PHG is a slow-and-steady-wins-the-race stock. It's up 20% in the past year and delivers a solid 1.7% dividend. NextEra Energy (NEE)Source: madamF / Shutterstock.com NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) is the largest electric utility in the world by market capitalization. It's also the world's largest producer of wind and solar energy.That's not bad for a company that started in 1925 as Florida Power & Light. It continues to serve southern Florida and remains a leading energy utility in the state and beyond.But its unregulated side is its turbocharger. Building out a portfolio of renewable energy projects, and acquiring others around the nation has turned this side of the business into a growth powerhouse.At least for now, utilities and other industrial power consumers get carbon credits for using clean energy. By buying energy from NEE, they can save upgrading their plants and equipment or delay building new ones. As a key player in this energy strategy, NextEra is looking more like a green growth company than a utility. * 7 Under-the-Radar European Stocks to Buy for 2020 NEE stock is up 48% in the past 12 months, yet its current PE is 34. And it still delivers a solid dividend of 1.9%. Microsoft (MSFT)Source: Peteri / Shutterstock.com Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) needs no introduction. It's a monster. Its market cap is $1.3 trillion.Office 365, its cloud-based product suite has 32.7 million individual users and its commercial base was up 27% in its most recent reported quarter, which ended December 31, and was reported Jan. 30 after the market close.Its commercial cloud business on Azure was up 29% in the quarter. That puts annual revenue from Azure at around $50 billion. That would outpace even Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) AWS cloud business, which is currently the dominant player in the space. This race for the cloud is going to be crucial in coming years as 5G technologies will be very dependent on reliable and powerful cloud-based platforms.The stock is up 65% in the past year and 3% after its earnings release yesterday. Yet its current PE is just 30, and it pays a respectable 1.2% dividend.What I especially like about Microsoft is that it's smart enough not to remain a legacy PC brand like Dell Computer (NYSE:DELL). It's investing heavily in technology of the future, from the cloud to "the mother of all technologies": artificial intelligence (A.I.) The AI Master KeyIf artificial intelligence sounds futuristic, even far-fetched -- well, keep in mind, you're already using it every day. If you've ever used Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google Assistant or Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) Siri … if you've had Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) recommend a movie or Zillow (NASDAQ:Z) recommend a house … even an email spam filter … then you've used artificial intelligence.In this new world of AI everywhere, data becomes a hot commodity.As scientists find even more applications for artificial intelligence -- from hospitals to retail to self-driving cars -- it's incredible to imagine how much data will be involved.To create AI programs in the first place, tech companies must collect vast amounts of data on human decisions. Data is what powers every AI system. As one AI researcher from the University of South Florida puts it, "data is the new oil."To cash in, you'll want the company that makes the "brain" that all AI software needs to function, spot patterns and interpret data.It's known as the "Volta Chip" -- and it's what makes the AI revolution possible.You don't need to be an AI expert to take part. I'll tell you everything you need to know, as well as my buy recommendation, in my special report for Growth Investor, The A.I. Master Key.

At first glance, the case for gold stocks to buy appears incredibly challenged right now. One of the biggest impediments to a rising equities market has been the U.S.-China trade war. Recently, though, both sides appear willing to negotiate. Even President Donald Trump, no stranger to angry rhetoric, appeared optimistic for a substantive trade deal.Wall Street has given Trump the benefit of the doubt, significantly hurting the case for gold stocks to buy. Both the venerable Dow Jones Industrial Average, along with the benchmark S&P 500 have charged to all-time highs. In sharp contrast, gold prices, which have looked so strong this year due to rising fear and uncertainty, have slid downward this month.But before you get too complacent, Yahoo Finance contributor Rick Newman brought up an excellent question: Why is the Street giving any credibility to Trump? As Newman bluntly put it, "There is, in fact, no trade deal with China." Further, he provides his readers with a warning from the not-so-distant past:InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips"Last December, after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump said, 'It's an incredible deal. It goes down, certainly, if it happens, it goes down as one of the largest deals ever made.' If you're wondering what deal that was, well, yes -- there was no deal."Thus, I don't think the thesis for gold stocks to buy is dead. And even if a trade deal materializes, I recently presented my argument for why big banks are in trouble. Namely, the economy is nowhere near as healthy as advertised. * 10 Cheap Stocks to Buy Under $10 This pressured environment dramatically raises the profile for gold miners. Additionally, don't ignore the potential for silver stocks to buy. Newmont Goldcorp (NEM)Source: Piotr Swat/Shutterstock Under any economic condition, I believe some exposure to gold and precious metals is prudent. Going 100% into any asset class is simply asking for trouble. That said, I understand the inconveniences involved with buying physical bullion. Thus, if you're not into gold-based exchange-traded funds like SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEARCA:GLD), then Newmont Goldcorp (NYSE:NEM) and NEM stock could be right for you.With a market capitalization of $30.3 billion, NEM stock is at time of writing the biggest name among publicly traded gold stocks. And while such stability typically means that Newmont won't rise as dramatically during a gold rush, you're likely not to lose your shirt with this investment. No matter what, both gold and silver stocks are known for volatility; thus, having a safety net makes sense.Thanks to its January 2019 acquisition of Goldcorp, NEM stock offers fundamental robustness. With stronger margins and higher growth trajectories, NEM is well positioned to advantage the fear trade. That might very well come if this trade war negotiation turns out to be another head-fake. Sibanye Gold (SBGL)Source: Shutterstock One of the biggest gold stocks to buy, Sibanye Gold (NYSE:SBGL), is notable today for moving against the grain. While the spot price for the underlying yellow metal has steadily declined since the beginning of September, SBGL stock has veritably skyrocketed. Is there something in the water in South Africa where Sibanye is headquartered?We all know that Africa has very valuable natural and precious resources. Among those resources isn't just gold, but also platinum and palladium. The latter metal has enjoyed a robust performance in the markets. Currently, palladium is worth more than gold, even with a sharp drop in price. Since Sibanye is the second-largest producer of the precious metal, SBGL stock has enjoyed outsized gains. * 7 Under-the-Radar Retail Stocks to Buy Now Not only that, management has been very active in the mergers and acquisitions scene. Consolidating more companies under its umbrella, SBGL stock has a very robust growth pathway over the long run. Franco-Nevada (FNV)Source: Shutterstock Among the best performing gold stocks to buy, what most impresses me about Franco-Nevada (NYSE:FNV) is its resiliency. Several mining companies, especially the ultra-speculative silver stocks, fell sharply following the 2011 precious metals rally and subsequent collapse. While FNV stock certainly felt the heat, it didn't fold like many of its peers.A major reason why this is involves fiscal stability. Prior to the 2011 run up, many sector players got gold fever, believing prices would rise indefinitely. Unfortunately, these organizations were not prepared for the coming bearish phase, taking risks they normally wouldn't have.However, Franco-Nevada has kept its financials relatively clean. For instance, its balance sheet has very manageable debt levels compared to its cash holdings. In other words, management hasn't stretched itself, which is a positive attribute in this environment. You just never know what's going to happen next. Thus, FNV stock gives you a balanced approach between upside potential and stability. Sandstorm Gold (SAND)Source: Shutterstock A lesser-known entity among gold stocks to buy, Sandstorm Gold (NYSEAMERICAN:SAND) could eventually turn out to be a front runner. Although the low SAND stock price makes it riskier compared to its larger brethren, what investors will appreciate is the underlying company's business model.Featuring a portfolio of royalty assets, Sandstorm doesn't actually operate mining projects. Instead, it invests in companies that have a need for capital. In return, Sandstorm receives a share of the spoils. For those who are concerned about the volatility in metal prices, SAND stock may offer an ideal platform. Thanks to the royalty model, it's much easier to predict cash flows for the company. * These 7 Stocks to Buy Were Big Winners This Earnings Season That said, don't jump aboard SAND stock assuming that it has no risks. Primarily, Sandstorm has a substantial stake in the Hod Maden mine in Turkey. If this pans out, SAND is due for a massive upswing. But it's also important to consider that Turkey isn't exactly a geopolitically stable area. First Majestic Silver (AG)Source: Shutterstock While gold stocks get most of the coverage in the precious metals sector, investors shouldn't ignore silver stocks. Generally speaking, the cheaper of the pair share a strong correlation with each other: As one moves higher, so too does the other. With that in mind, those interested in mining companies should consider First Majestic Silver (NYSE:AG) and AG stock.One of the attributes about First Majestic that I found appealing is its geographic positioning. The company has 100% ownership of six mines in Mexico. Aside from being a neighboring country, Mexico has free trade agreements with multiple developed economies. More importantly for potential buyers of AG stock, Mexico features relative political and financial stability.And because the U.S. and Mexico are such close partners, the latter is truly disincentivized from acting irrationally.That said, AG stock isn't without risks. Typical of smaller silver stocks, First Majestic historically has suffered middling profitability margins, though these metrics have recently improved. Wheaton Precious Metals (WPM)Source: Shutterstock Like gold stocks, silver mining investments are wild, even more so than those companies producing the yellow metal. Because silver has both industrial and monetary components, as well as a thinner market, the supply-demand picture is unpredictable. However, Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM) takes much of the guesswork out with its streaming business model.Like Sandstorm Gold, Wheaton Precious Metals doesn't own mining projects. Instead, it provides necessary capital for miners. Therefore, an investment in WPM stock provides broader coverage to the silver mining industry than would be possible through a traditional business model. And because of the pre-negotiated contracts, it's much easier to predict Wheaton's financial trajectory. * 7 Earnings Losers That Were Hit Hard This Season Interestingly, WPM stock has held up reasonably well following the precious metals' fallout earlier this decade. Now, it appears the tide is shifting favorably for both gold and silver stocks to buy. Don't be surprised if WPM enjoys outsized performance. Pan American Silver (PAAS)Source: Shutterstock Relative to gold stocks, the silver miners have a reputation for being high-risk, high-reward investments. However, those that value hard results with the possibility of outstanding gains should consider Pan American Silver (NASDAQ:PAAS). While silver prices have slipped badly in November, PAAS stock is up over 4% since the beginning of the month.Why? The Street took a very positive view on the company's third-quarter earnings results. Revenue came in at over $352 million, representing a year-over-year lift of nearly 88%. Moreover, Pan American delivered net income of $37.7 million, which translates to earnings per share of 18 cents. In the year-ago quarter, EPS was a loss of 6 cents.Following the results, PAAS stock benefitted from a robust session the next day.I wouldn't be surprised if we saw further gains down the road. PAAS stock was a survivor of the dark days of silver and gold stocks early this decade. With a much more favorable pathway ahead, the underlying company has the potential to pull off big surprises.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto is long all the precious metals mentioned above.
