If there's a bigger IPO story in 2019 than Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND), I'd love to know what it is. Beyond Meat stock gained 163% in its first day of trading May 2. Through June 27, it's up 542%, trading at more than six times its IPO price of $25. It doesn't get much better than an annualized total return of 3,200%. In early June, InvestorPlace contributor Luce Emerson suggested investors ought to take profits on Beyond Meat stock. At the time it was trading around $140; it has since added another 13% over three weeks. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIt can't keep going higher, can it? I've been on the plant-based foods bandwagon for a while, so I believe that anything is possible. Last October, I recommended Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN) in large part because of its investment in Beyond Meat. Tyson sold its stake in April before the IPO because it planned to create its own plant-based protein products, putting it in direct competition with Beyond Meat. * The 7 Top Small-Cap Stocks Of 2019 However, as much as I believe in plant-based foods, Beyond Meat stock is ridiculously expensive. Therefore, I thought I would recommend seven of the best stocks to buy for the same price as one share of Beyond Meat stock. Here's what I've found. Best Stocks to Buy: Cactus (WHD)Oil Drilling SunriseI had never heard of Cactus (NYSE:WHD) until reading an article about the maker of oil-drilling equipment a few days ago. However, I wanted to recommend one stock from seven different sectors and it seemed like a solid pick from the basic materials sector. As I write this, WHD is trading around $33, about 22% off its 52-week high of $40.97. Cactus reported its 2019 first-quarter results in early May. They were very positive, with sales up 13.6% on a sequential basis from the fourth quarter to $158.9 million. On the bottom line, adjusted net income rose 9% on a sequential basis to $36.9 million. On a year-over-year basis, revenues and adjusted net income increased by 38% and 43%, respectively. More importantly, Cactus saw revenue growth across all three of its operating segments, a positive sign considering rig counts continue to decline. Cactus has $88 million in cash, no long-term debt, and all of its revolving credit facility available. The company expects to spend up to $65 million in fiscal 2019 on capital expenditures, which means free cash flow could go over $100 million on the year.Trading at a forward P/E of 14, Cactus is a diamond in the rough. Tapestry (TPR)Source: Shutterstock Ever since the owner of Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman announced in 2017 that it was changing its corporate name from Coach to Tapestry (NYSE:TPR), its stock has been on a downward spiral, trading about 23% lower than two years ago. If you look at its most recent earnings report from early May, Tapestry's business isn't doing that badly, with overall revenue of $1.33 billion in the third quarter, $10 million higher than a year earlier, and non-GAAP operating income of $141 million, $43 million lower than a year earlier. Through the first nine months of 2019, however, Tapestry had an operating profit of $725 million on $4.51 billion in sales for an operating margin of 16.1%, considerably higher than its operating margin in the third quarter. Happy that it's on target to meet its financial goals in 2019, Tapestry's board's approved a $1 billion share repurchase program to buy back its stock. Given TPR stock is down almost 7% year to date through June 26 and its free cash flow of $747 million over the trailing 12 months is higher than it's been in some time, now is an excellent time to reduce the share count. * The Top 8 Tech Stocks of 2019 (So Far) If not for Kate Spade's poor performance, TPR stock would be much higher. In my opinion, it's an underappreciated consumer goods stock, ready to move higher. Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (SKT)Source: Shutterstock The past five years have not been kind to Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (NYSE:SKT). The retail REIT has an annualized total return of -8.8%, considerably worse than its retail REIT peers, who're up 2.5% over the same period. In September 2017, I recommended Dividend Aristocrats, suggesting that a low stock price combined with a high occupancy rate should provide REIT investors with both income and growth. At the time of my recommendation, it was trading around $24. Down 33% in the 22 months since, I'm suggesting doubling down isn't the worst idea in the world. Here's why: Tanger's first-quarter results saw its occupancy rate drop by 50 basis points to 95.4%. That's only 70 basis points lower than where it was September 2017. In Q1 2019, Tanger sold four non-core outlet centers for gross proceeds of $130.5 million. The four centers accounted for 5.1% of the REITs 2019 portfolio net operating income (NOI). The four centers averaged 24 years of age and didn't fit the company's plans for future growth. If you consider that almost every financial metric of the four centers sold wasn't nearly in line with its other 40, the fact that it has been proactive about under-performing assets is a good sign. For the year, Tanger expects its funds from operations (FFO) to be at least $2.22. Trading at 7.1 times FFO, SKT stock is an excellent value at current prices. Petmed Express (PETS)Source: Shutterstock You might be wondering why I keep recommending value stocks.When you get a stock like Beyond Meat that's trading at 80 times sales, in a market that's also reasonably expensive, the only way to get seven stocks to buy for less than $158 is by considering some of the value plays that are out there. Petmed Express (NASDAQ:PETS) is one such stock, trading within 5% of its 52-week low and valued at only 1.2 times sales. It's the antithesis of Beyond Meat. On June 20, PETS hit a four-year low on fears the online pet pharmacy would be unable to compete with Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Walmart (NYSE:WMT), who announced in May that it would open 100 veterinary clinics over the next 12 months as well as Walmart Pet RX, an online pharmacy, to save pet owners money on their prescriptions.In fiscal 2019, PetMed's revenues grew by 3.5% to $283.4 million with a profit of $37.7 million, 1.2% higher than a year earlier. CEO Menderes Akdag admitted the market has become more competitive in recent years. To fight off the competition, PETS stock is maintaining low prices, increasing advertising, and investing in its e-commerce business. * 7 Stocks to Buy for a Dovish Fed With no debt, $100 million in cash, and almost $45 million in free cash flow, a private equity buyer has to be interested in taking it private. CAE (CAE)Source: Shutterstock Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger appeared before a congressional panel June 19 arguing that all pilots should get new flight simulator training before returning the grounded Boeing 737 MAX to service. While Sullenberger believes simulator training is necessary, Boeing thinks differently: they believe a one-hour computer-based course educating pilots on the updates to the MCAS software used in the 737 is all that's required to get them up to speed. If you own CAE (NYSE:CAE) stock, you're likely hoping that the Federal Aviation Administration listens to Sullenberger and not Boeing (NYSE:BA), because it could mean more revenue for the Montreal-based company that specializes in full-flight simulators.CAE got its start in 1947 under the name Canadian Aviation Electronics. Initially, CAE repaired and overhauled military aircraft. Today, it trains more than 220,000 civil and defense crew members around the world. CAE reported its Q4 and 2019 results in May. On the top line, it had annual sales of C$3.3 billion, 17% higher than a year earlier. On the bottom line, adjusted net income was C$335.2 million, 13% higher than in 2017. Over the past year, CAE's civil aviation business sold 78 full-flight simulators as well as booking $2.8 billion in future orders for training and simulators. As commercial air flight becomes more popular outside North America, CAE's global presence will continue to grow. Fastenal (FAST)Source: Shutterstock If you've owned Fastenal (NASDAQ:FAST) stock over the past few years, you're probably pleased about its performance. Up 16% on an annualized basis over the past 10 years, the distributor of industrial and construction products continues to change with the times. One of the distributor's newer growth initiatives are the industrial vending devices it introduced in 2008. FAST offers 23 different versions to customers, each device generating from $1,500 to $3,000 per month. At the end of the first quarter, Fastenal had 83,410 industrial devices in the field, a ratio of 27 vending devices to one in-market location, which is defined as both public branch locations and Onsite locations at a customer's facility. The number of Fastenal's industrial vending machines grew by 13.4% in the first quarter.In terms of profits, Fastenal made $194.1 million in the first quarter, 11.4% higher than its profit a year earlier. Due to fewer shares outstanding as a result of share repurchases, the company's earnings per share increased by 11.9% in the first quarter. Although FAST stock's gross profit margin was 100 basis points lower in the first quarter at 47.7%, its operating margin was 20%, 20 basis points higher than a year earlier. * 10 Best S&P 500 Stocks to Buy For the Rest of 2019 Trading at a forward P/E of 21.2, Fastenal stock is currently valued at less than its 5-year historical average P/E of 25.3.I continue to see solid growth at Fastenal. Opera (OPRA)Source: Hillary via FlickrNorwegian browser Opera (NASDAQ:OPRA) went public in July 2018 at $12 a share. Almost a year later, it's trading below its IPO price, but well above its 52-week low of $5.31 that it hit in December. Up 87% year-to-date through June 26, if you bought earlier this year, you made a smart purchase. Does it have more gas in the tank? I think it does. On June 26, Opera released an iOS version of its web browser, to add to the Android and PC versions that already exist. Opera's browser includes a crypto wallet that allows users to "seamlessly interact with the next generation of Web 3 applications on the Ethereum blockchain," stated the company press release. With Opera's browser, getting into using cryptocurrencies just became that much easier. Opera also launched Opera News in January 2017 as part of its mobile browsers. Two-and-a-half years later, Opera News has reached 150 million monthly active users, almost twice as large as Apple News. On May 22, Opera announced its first-quarter results. Revenues were up, while profits were down. In 2019, it expects revenues to be at least $230 million (34% growth) with adjusted EBITDA of between $30 million and $45 million. As Opera News continues to gain traction, profits in 2020 and beyond will continue to grow. Opera is the sleeper stock of the seven.At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

GREENSBORO, N.C., June 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. (SKT) announced today that Thomas E. McDonough, the Company's President and Chief Operating Officer, informed the Company of his intent to retire, effective December 31, 2019. The Company has retained a leading global search firm to assist in filling the position and further augment its management team as part of its ongoing succession planning. "I want to acknowledge and thank Tom for his many contributions at Tanger over the nine years he was part of the team, and we wish him all the best," said Steven B. Tanger, Chief Executive Officer.
There's no denying that real estate investment trusts (REITs) have a lot to offer investors. Thanks to their tax-structure, REITs pass much of their cash flows back to investors as juicy dividends. This provides them with yields in the 3 to 5% range. At the same time, thanks to rising rents, those dividends continue to grow -- which in turn pushes up share prices.The magic for REITs lies within a number called funds from operations (FFO). FFO is basically the cash flows that REITs have to distribute. Rising FFO numbers simply equals more dividends for shareholders.But the trick is not to pay too much for those funds.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsJust like stocks can be expensive, REITs can also be a bit pricey. But rather than use a price-to-earnings ratio, the best way to look at REITs is via a price-to-FFO. The idea is that you're not paying too much for those cash flows. And that's to the recent market hiccups, many real estate investment trusts are trading for bargain levels. Investors can get their rising dividends at a cheaper price point. * 7 Stocks to Buy for June With that, here are five top-notch REITs to buy while they're dirt cheap. Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (SKT)Source: Shutterstock P/FFO: 7.31Some of the cheapest REITs can be found among the shopping malls and retail owners. And it's easy to see why. Online shopping and Amazon (NYSE:AMZN) continue to eat many brick & mortar retailers' lunch. This has resulted in plenty of bankruptcies and store closings. That clearly hurts the owners of shopping malls right in the wallet. But the sector isn't all doom and gloom. There are bargains to be had, and one of the best could be Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (NYSE:SKT).SKT's win lies within its operating markets. Tanger is the biggest REIT focused on outlet shopping -- with a portfolio of 40 outlet shopping centers located in 20 states. The kicker is that outlet shopping tends to be "destination shopping." But SKT's properties feature plenty of amenities -- such as restaurants, movie theaters, and entertainment. This keeps luring shoppers back for the bargains. Moreover, many of these outdoor shopping plazas are located in higher-income areas that are unaffected by recessions and other downturns.Add in its very conservative balance sheet and you a long runway to fight off online rivals.The proof comes down to Tanger's numbers. Despite selling four properties, SKT managed to keep its FFO roughly the same as a year ago. Meanwhile, foot traffic and occupancy numbers continue to rise. And yet, the market is throwing the REIT away with a P/FFO of just 7.31 and big 7.86% dividend yield. Ventas (VTR)Source: Sunrise1981 via Wikimedia (Modified)P/FFO: 16.16Healthcare remains one of the best long-term sectors for investors. As out population continue to age and grow, more demand is inevitable. That demand won't just happen towards drugs and equipment, but places to conduct healthcare as well. Some of the best opportunities for investors could be in the real estate related to hospitals, doctors' offices, senior living facilities, etc.That could make Ventas' (NYSE:VTR) cheap P/FFO of 16 a steal for the long haul.VTR is one of the largest owners of medical real estate. That includes more than 730 senior housing facilities, 350 medical office buildings and 37 research/biotech offices as well as numerous long-term care and skilled nursing facilities. All in all, Ventas owns nearly 1200 different medical-related properties. Turns out that's a good place to be. VTR just sits back and collects a rent check. The firm doesn't have to worry about potential regulation, billing of patients or the other hassles of the healthcare sector.This has translated into a steady diet of FFO increases. Last quarter, reported FFO jumped 2.08% in the last quarter thanks to rent increases and higher billings. As expected, VTR has used those jumps to its cash flows to reward shareholders. Since 2001, Ventas has been able to grow its dividend by 8% annually. That an impressive feat that many REITs can match. * 4 Consumer Staples Stocks for Both Income and Growth Ventas yields 4.81%. Douglas Emmett (DEI)Source: Shutterstock P/FFO: 20.48One of the chief sayings in real estate happens to be "location, location, location." But there are tons of truth to the old adage. Those investors with properties in the hottest market do better than those holding buildings in say Pawnee, Indiana. REIT Douglas Emmett (NYSE:DEI) certainly fits into the former camp.DEI owns office and residential buildings in Southern California. We're talking L.A. San Francisco, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, etc. The key for Douglas Emmett is that this area of the country is in very very very high demand. And yet, space continues to be constrained. There simply isn't any real room in Southern California to build new construction. This provides DEI with an amazing moat, strong rent growth -- thanks to its short lease agreements -- and high occupancy rates for its properties.All of this has helped drive DEI's dividends over the last decade or so.The beauty is that Douglas Emmett has been using excess cash to replicate its model in another high barrier to entry market Honolulu and Hawaii. DEI has been on a buying spree lately, locking in top residential and office properties in the state. This provides it will another avenue for future FFO growth and dividend increases.And yet, with a P/FFO that's lower than the broader indexes covering REITs, investors are considering the potential at DEI. Highwoods Properties, Inc. (HIW)Source: Brett Weinstein via Flickr (modified)P/FFO: 12.87While New York and California get a lot of attention from investors looking at REITs, the south can be ignored. There are regions and corridors in the southern United States that garner higher incomes, high employment rates, and strong economic growth. Cheap REIT Highwoods Properties (NYSE:HIW) is one way to capitalize on these markets.Raleigh, North Carolina- based HIW owns office buildings and plazas in such southern hotbeds of growth like Atlanta, Tampa, Orlando, Nashville, Memphis, Raleigh, and Richmond. It also owns a swath of assets in Pittsburgh -- which continues to see an economic renaissance. This southern niche continues to help drive growth at HIW in both the cash flow and dividend department.However, since the south is often ignored by other REITs, HIW has been able to take advantage of these top-tier cities stealth growth and has continued to beef up its development projects here. It currently has 8 development projects in its top three markets. Those buildings are already 93% leased. Right out the gate, Highwoods should be able to start making money on the projects.And it'll share the wealth as well. While the firm kept its payout static during and after the recession, it's recently begun to increase the payout. After a one-time special dividend in 2016 to free itself of extra cash, the REIT has increased its payout by 12%. * 7 Stocks to Sell After Earnings Destroyed Their Long-Term Stories All in all, HIW stock is a cheap way to buy into some of the hottest and secret markets in the country. Mid-American Apartment Communities (MAA)Source: Phillip Capper via FlickrP/FFO: 19.01Apartment REITs have been some of the asset classes best performers since the recession. That's included Mid-American Apartment Communities (NYSE:MAA). And yet, MAA is still cheap when compared to many of its apartment peers. That could be a huge opportunity for investors.The opportunity comes from MAA's strategy. Unlike many apartment REITs that have flocked to urban areas in top tier markets, MAA has continued to focus on suburban markets in the Sunbelt. This has continued to push MAA's occupancy rates higher and help it score top renewal rates in the sector.Secondly, Mid-American isn't going for the super high end. The average rental price for its apartments is around $1,300 per month. This provides plenty of resiliency with regards to its tenants with regards to economic conditions. The combination of operating regions and market segment has allowed MAA to realize some strong growth over the last decade.This has all translated into impressive total returns for shareholders. Over the last two decades, MAA has managed to produce 13.4% annualized total returns. That destroys the S&P 500 returns in that time frame. And much of that return has come from the firm's commitment to increasing its dividend.With a low P/FFO ratio, MAA could be one of the best buys in the apartment sector.Disclosure: At the time of writing, Aaron Levitt held a position in AMZN.
