    3 Blue-Chip Stocks for a Market Slowdown

    The global economy is starting to look a little shaky. Between the US-China trade tensions and now the Iranian-sponsored attacks on Saudi Arabian oil output, the pressures on the world system of trade and commerce are increasing. As CLSA’s Eric Fishwick said, “Trade both ways has slowed… the trade wars are definitely having an impact.” And in an effort to calm markets after the drone attack on his company’s largest facility, Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser said, “We have enough oil products to supply the local market.”After posting losses on Monday, both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones were up slightly on Tuesday. The S&P gained 0.26%, while the Dow added 0.13%. A look at the charts, however, shows that the sharp gains the markets have posted since August 23 have slowed and levelled off. Investors are watching the news and getting nervous.A wise investor will move to protect his portfolio, and we’ve found three Strong Buy stocks in the TipRanks database to do just that. These are large-cap health insurers, offering a product that remains in high demand no matter what the economic conditions, and generating high returns through share appreciation over the long-run. They are not cheap stocks, but they are classic defensive plays for an uncertain market environment. Anthem, Inc.With 40 million members, Anthem (ANTM – Get Report) is the largest managed care company in the Blue Cross Blue Shield network. It is the largest health insurer in California, the country’s largest state-wide market. ANTM shares are up 123% over the past five years, and the company’s dividend, while yielding a modest 1.24%, pays out an appreciable $3.20 per share annually.Anthem’s earnings reflect the company’s strong position in the health care market. In the second quarter, Anthem reported a net profit of $1.14 billion on quarterly revenues of $25.47 billion. EPS, at $4.64, was in line with the expected $4.62. Both profits and EPS were up year-over-year; net profits by 8.5% and EPS by 9%.Robust earnings and a solid position in its industry prompted Deutsche Bank analyst George Hill to start coverage of this stock with a Buy rating. He set a $323 price target, and noted, “The company's execution has been strong recently, even though we see some implementation risk [from] relatively lower exposure to the faster-growing segments of the market.” Hill’s price target suggests an upside potential of 25%.ANTM stock has a unanimous Buy consensus from the Street; 7 analysts have given this company a Buy in the past three months. Shares sell for $257, and the average price target of $345 implies a potential upside of 34%. Cigna Holding CompanyWith 5-year growth of 75%, and a Q2 earnings positive surprise of 13%, Cigna (CI – Get Report) is another solid performer in the health insurance industry. The company offers medical and dental, as well as accident, disability, and life insurance products around the world.Oppenheimer analyst Michael Wiederhorn, who has a 65% success rate with his stock recommendations, sees CI as a compelling buy. His price target of $254 suggests an impressive upside of 57%. In his comments, Wiederhorn states, “The [business] environment has certainly changed, with regulatory pressure affecting all ends of the pharmaceutical supply chain, but he believes the depressed multiples are well overdone.”Analyst George Hill, quoted above, also likes CI, enough to initiate coverage with a Buy rating. He writes, “The company's PBM segment does not contain the significant short-term earnings risk implied by the steep discount of the stock price. We believe its core commercial MCO and the perceived cross sales benefit could drive its multiple expansion.” Hill’s $207 price target implies an upside of 28%.Like Anthem, Cigna has a unanimous consensus rating of Strong Buy – in the last three months, the stock has been given 8 buy ratings. Cigna shares sell for $161, making it significantly less expensive than Anthem or UnitedHealth (see below), and its average price target of $214 gives the stock a 32% upside potential. UnitedHealth Group, Inc.UnitedHealth (UNH – Get Report) benefits from scale – it is the world’s largest health insurer and boasts over 115 million customers. Its 2018 revenue totaled over $225 billion, with over $17 billion realized in profits. More recently, UNH posted a 3.9% positive earnings surprise on Q2 EPS of $3.60. While the company’s growth has slowed in the past year, sheer scale ensures that it will remain profitable. The strong dividend, paying out $4.32 per share annually, makes this stable stock a favorite for return-minded investors.Continued profitability lies behind 4-star analyst A. J. Rice’s optimism on the stock. The Credit Suisse analyst gives UNH a buy rating with a $293 price target. Rice says of UNH, “The company gave the impression that the moderation in enrollment growth it’s seeing this year was largely expected... However, it also stressed that its goal of 13-16% EPS growth is a long-term target implying that 2020 is an unlikely timeframe to see such substantial improvements."Our current 2020 estimates anticipate 10% Y/Y growth. If UNH posts modest upside relative to our Q3 and Q4 2019 estimates, our 2020 $16.30 EPS est could then represent roughly 8-10% growth. This type of growth seems a reasonable initial target.” Rice’s price target suggests a potential upside of 26% for UNH shares. He has a 63% success rate with his recommendations on this stock.Overall, UNH holds a Strong Buy from the analyst consensus, with 10 buys and 2 holds given in the past three months. Shares in UNH sell for $232, making it the most expensive of the stocks in this list. The $298 price target suggests an upside of 28%.Visit TipRanks’ Trending Stocks page and find out what else the Street’s top analysts are looking at.

  • Dow Jones Today: Lacking Sizzle

    Dow Jones Today: Lacking Sizzle

    Stocks meandered for much of Friday despite some encouraging consumer data, which may not be surprising given that this week was mostly impressive for riskier assets.Source: Shutterstock In a report out earlier today, the University of Michigan's initial reading of September consumer sentiment jumped to 92 from the three-year low of 89.8 last month. Additionally, another report out this morning showed retail sales in August rose 0.4% and that the July reading was revised higher."The resilient reading shows American consumers may be poised to shake off trade war and global slowdown to support the record-long economic expansion as the labor market holds up," according to Bloomberg.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Discount Retail Stocks to Buy for a Recession In recent months, I've noted many times in this space the importance of the U.S. consumer and that many of the recession calls were likely premature because the market has not absorbed material deterioration in consumer data to date. I'll stick by that thesis because the preliminary September sentiment reading seems to indicate the August result was a bump in the road, not the start of a negative trend.Today, the Nasda Composite finished lower by 0.22% while the S&P 500 dropped 0.08%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.13%, extending its winning streak to eight days. In late trading, 16 of the Dow's 30 components were pointed higher. Pleasant Surprise for Dow Component UNHIt was interesting if not surprising to see UnitedHealth (NYSE:UNH), a frequent guest of this space, rank as one of the best-performing names in the Dow today. I say surprising because there was a democratic debate last night, an event that typically weighs on stocks like UNH. I missed the goings on, but I'll assume whatever Medicare For All talk that took place was not strident enough to derail UNH shares today.Staying with the healthcare theme, don't read too much into today's bounce in pharmacy name Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA), a consumer staples name with sizable drug price exposure, because two of the Dow's three pharmaceuticals names finished lower today. This is another hot-button issue investors need to be aware of going forward."An ambitious draft plan from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to allow government price negotiation on a swath of expensive drugs has shifted Washington's contentious policy debate leftward at a critical point for Democratic negotiations with Senate Republicans and the White House," reports Modern Healthcare. BA Flying HigherBoeing (NYSE:BA) continued trending higher, gaining 1.06% today as the company makes progress toward getting the 737 MAX jet airborne again. A deeper analysis of that issue and other important points on Boeing stock is available here.There seems to be some momentum for Boeing getting the jet back in the skies before the end of this year, Wall Street's desired time horizon, but by the company's admission, it doesn't control the timeline."The timeline is in the hands of divided regulators around the world who must approve Boeing's proposed software fix for 737 MAX flight controls and new training materials. European regulators plan their own test flights on the changes," reports Reuters. Fighting BackWith a decline of about 2%, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was the worst-performing stock in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. That's not something that happens very often, so when it does, it's fair to surmise there's a reason for the Apple weakness, albeit temporary.Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall cut his price target on Apple shares today to $165 from $187, saying the company's recently unveiled $4.99 per month price on the Apple + streaming TV service is aggressive and could hamper the company's earnings.Apple rebutted the analyst, saying it doesn't expect Apple + to materially impact results. Bottom Line on Dow JonesThere are just a couple of weeks left in the the third quarter, meaning another earnings season is fast-approaching. I'll leave you with a glance at some of the sectors analysts are bullish and tepid on this quarter."At the sector level, analysts are most optimistic on the Energy (66%) sector, as this sector has the highest percentage of Buy ratings. It is interesting to note that the Energy sector is projected to report the largest earnings decline of all 11 sectors in CY 2019 (-20.9%) and the largest earnings growth of all 11 sectors in CY 2020 (30.2%)," said FactSet.The research firm notes analysts are not enthusiastic about consumer staples as that sector has the lowest percentage of "buy" ratings and the highest percentage of "sell" calls.Todd Shriber does not own any of the aforementioned securities.

    Why Teladoc (TDOC) Stock is Poised to Capture the Future of Healthcare

    There's a big shift going on in the healthcare industry. I'm sure you've seen evidence of it yourself. But today, I want to make sure it's on your radar as an investment. My pick in this area, Teladoc (NYSE:TDOC) stock, is starting to take off, and once you see why, you'll want to be on board, too.Healthcare companies are finally joining us here in the 21st century… by using technology to offer us better care, more efficiently.There are all sorts of advancements being made, from DNA sequencing to "liquid biopsies" (which can detect disease biomarkers with one little prick). But the one I find most exciting right now is telemedicine. Rather than getting stuck in line, waiting to see a doctor, these days you can often just log on (or get on the phone) for a "virtual checkup."InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsI'm a bit of a hypochondriac, so I'm never hesitant to go to urgent care if I'm concerned about something - but I hate sitting in a crowded room with people coughing on me. I'm sure you do, too. Telemedicine is perfect for me, and I've loved it every time I've used it. * 10 Stocks to Sell in Market-Cursed September Aside from convenience, I believe telemedicine could have a big impact on things like mental health. When people are able to see a therapist or psychiatrist virtually, it makes it much easier for people to get treatment.Those are just two anecdotal examples. But as the trend takes hold, more data becomes available. Last week, UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) published the following research: * Of 5,000 respondents to an Advisory Board survey on telemedicine, three-quarters said they'd consider virtual care. * Telemedicine can be especially important in preventative care. Ninety percent of respondents said they'd cancel (or reschedule) a "wellness visit" if it conflicted with work. * One of the biggest opportunities is in rural areas without sufficient access to healthcare. There are 7,200 of these areas in the United States, in which about 85 million Americans are underserved. * And for health insurers, these programs could save $6 billion annually. For example, a $1,800 trip to the emergency room could cost less than $50 virtually!So far, the results are encouraging: From 2014 to 2018, virtual care usage is up 624%!As for United Healthcare itself, its experience with telemedicine reinforces my expectation that this trend is here to stay. Demographics Are On Their SideUnited Healthcare launched "Virtual Visits" in 2016. Of roughly 500,000 customers to date, "most are between the ages of 30 to 34 and are primarily women."And this generation - the millennials - is now the largest living adult generation, having just surpassed even the baby boomers.This demographic shift is one I have a close eye on. In fact, I just devoted my September issue of Investment Opportunities to it.Millennials are now reaching the point where they're beginning to form families and buy houses. They may have waited longer than their forerunners, but they will have a huge impact as they dominate the economy for the next decade or more.And if millennials prefer virtual checkups, then this really is the future of healthcare. One Company Has the First-Mover AdvantageAt the end of its report, United Healthcare announced that its new, nationwide provider of Virtual Visits is Teladoc.But Teladoc has actually been around since 2002. And today, it's the leading provider of telehealth medical visits in the United States. The company boasts being able to connect you with a licensed doctor in under 10 minutes… whether it's via the phone, internet, or mobile app.Shares got hit on news that Teladoc's contract ran out with the U.S. Defense Health Agency. I wasn't too worried, though, as I explained in Investment Opportunities - where we've owned TDOC stock for a year and a half.Teladoc is already the leader in the telehealth industry, with well over 50% of the market share in the United States. If it can keep growing at this pace, the number of visits could grow by 10-fold in the coming years - and revenue gains should keep pace.Already in the most recent quarter, revenue gained 38% quarter-over-quarter to $130.3 million. Visit volumes soared 70% to 908,000, while U.S. paid memberships grew by 100,000 to 26.8 million.Sure enough, the stock has begun to surge again after the United Healthcare deal was announced. After all, the Military Health System was a 9.4 million-person market - but United Healthcare is a 49.5 million-person market!TDOC stock has popped more than 50% from its lows late last year. It is still under my recommended buy price in Investment Opportunities… but I don't expect it to stay that way for long. Once more investors catch on to the virtual-medicine mega-trend - and identify Teladoc as the industry leader - TDOC stock will realize plenty more upside.And while Teladoc is a great direct play on personalized medicine… Certain Indirect Plays Are Just as InterestingWearable devices are helping people like me take control of our health. The Apple Watch is actually an approved medical device. It can alert you to a low heart rate, detect your heart rhythm, and even conduct an ECG (or EKG). It can also make an emergency call for you - and it can do it in 150 different countries with the new Series 5 announced today.It's no wonder Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) would want to move into this market: Analysts are predicting 14X growth in just 10 years!All of these devices need to be powered. And when we're talking about something as crucial as medical devices - then we really need a battery that's more reliable than the current technology.It blows my mind that we are STILL relying on battery technology that was created for Sony camcorders in the 1980s. But the next generation is in the works. And these batteries will be more powerful - and much safer.I've got everything you need to know, and I can show you how to invest now.

  • 7 Upcoming IPOs for September

    7 Upcoming IPOs for September

    As expected, August was fairly slow for IPOs, which happens every year during the summer holidays.There were only seven deals in the month and all but one rose in value. Among the top performers were Inmode (NASDAQ:INMD), up 87% and Kura Sushi USA (NASDAQ:KRUS), which gained 60%.Which company lost money? It was Sundial Growers (NASDAQ:SNDL), which dropped 30% from its debut.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Stocks to Sell in Market-Cursed September So what should you expect for upcoming IPOs in September? Well, as should be no surprise, there will continue to be offerings from red-hot areas like cloud software operators, and there will be some deals from traditional companies. First: What's an IPO, Anyway?For many people, IPOs are kind of a mystery. After all, it does seem kind of strange for a company's stock to zoom on the first day of trading, right?Here's a quick explanation of IPOs: An IPO is when a company issues its shares to the public on an exchange, such as the Nasdaq Composite or New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Often this process results in raising a large amount of money, say over $100 million.Getting to this point is not easy. Upcoming IPOs need to have audited books, a strong financial infrastructure and an experienced management team. There will also need to be advisors -- called investment bankers or underwriters -- who will provide guidance through the process. This involves putting together a disclosure document called an S-1, and having a roadshow, in which management makes presentations to investors.Advisors will generally undervalue the shares, allowing for the pop. It's a way to reward investors. Yet these investors are usually institutions, hedge funds, and wealthy people.Yes, it's kind of unfair, but the system has seen little change over the decades. Despite this, individual investors have still made lots of money from IPOs like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) -- regardless of if they got the shares at the offering price.Let's take a look at the seven upcoming IPOs for the month: SmileDirectClub (SDC)Source: Thamyris Salgueiro / Shutterstock.com Among the upcoming IPOs, SmileDirectClub might garner the most interest. This company is the pioneer of the direct-to-consumer market for teeth straightening systems. SmileDirectClub leverages innovative teledentistry technology and has a fully integrated platform.While a orthodontist may charge $5,000 to $8,000 for a procedure, SmileDirectClub charges generally below $2,000. The company also has a financing program and reimbursement relationships with UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) and CVS Health (NYSE:CVS).From fiscal 2017 to 2019, revenues soared nearly 200% to $423.2 million. And since 2014, the company has served over 700,000 customers. * 7 Tech ETFs to Invest In Now The SmileDirectClub IPO is expected to involve the issuance of 58.5 million shares at a range of $19 to $22. The lead underwriters include JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM), Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), Jefferies, UBS (NYSE:UBS) and Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS). The shares will be listed on the Nasdaq under the ticker of SDC. Cloudflare (NET)Source: Shutterstock Cloudflare develops technologies to deliver highly robust and secure internet connectivity. The company is trying to disrupt the traditional approaches, which rely heavily on legacy on-premise software.From 2016 to 2018, revenues have gone from $84.8 million to $192.7 million. Keep in mind that the company counts 10% of the Fortune 1,000 as paying customers. In fact, about 18% of the top 10,000 websites use at least one product from Cloudflare.As for the upcoming IPO, the company expects to offer 35 million shares at a range of $10 to $12 on the NYSE (the proposed ticker is NET). The lead underwriters are Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), JPM, Jefferies, Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) and RBC. Datadog (DDOG)Source: Shutterstock For upcoming IPOs, Datadog is likely to be red-hot. The company is a developer of technologies for monitoring and analytics for cloud systems. Some of the benefits include IT migration, collaboration, the acceleration of time-to-market for apps and better problem resolution.Founded in 2010, Datadog has been highly capital-efficient. It has raised $92 million - and still has $63.6 million in the bank.What's more, last year revenues shot up 97% to $198.1 million. The company has about 8,800 customers, up from 5,400 on a year-over-year basis. * The 8 Worst Stocks to Buy Before the Trade Turmoil Cools Off Datadog plans to issue 24 million shares at $19 to $22 and the lead underwriters include MS, GS, JPM, CS, Barclays (NYSE:BCS), Jefferies, and RBC. The company will list its shares on the Nasdaq under the ticker of DDOG.
