Good Stocks – Good Stocks in 2018
Looking for some Good Stocks in 2018? Below is a list of good stocks to invest in for 2018. I will update this list as I see fit given the volatility of the stock market. I will also try to list some good penny stocks as well. However, good penny stocks are hard to come by because penny stocks are penny stocks for a reason. The company is probably in some kind of trouble which is causing the stock price to fall rather then go up. Good Stocks are companies that are growing and analysts haven’t modeled this growth into their expectations. The best stocks in 2018 will be the companies that beat earnings and raise guidance.
When investing, I try to find good stocks that miss earnings and are cheap because when they eventually beat, the stock price rockets higher. However, when I trade, I position in these good stocks after the price drops and then sell into a pre earnings rally getting out of the way before the company actually reports earnings. This way, I’m ready to buy again if they report poor earnings.
Good stocks to buy are companies that have lines. Shake Shack (SHAK), Apple (AAPL), Chipotle (CMG). Chipotle recently dropped to $350 and then exploded back up to $500. It will take a few quarters to price in the downside risk but this is a good stock to buy for the long term. Below is a list of good stocks to invest in.
Good Stocks 2018 – Right now the best stocks to buy in 2018 would be Intrexon (XON), Small Caps Bull 3x (TNA), Chipotle (CMG), and IBM (IBM). I will explain more about each stock below.
Intrexon (XON) – XON is a good stock because shares are undervalued and the company is ramping up several innovative products. Intrexon is a synthetic biology company that engieneers molecules to make things better. For instance, they are working on a non-browning apple, a way to turn natural gas into chemicals, cloning pets, a rub-off tattoo remover product, and misquitos that fight zika. XON has a lot going for it and I was able to buy shares at $21.92 and I’m hoping to buy more below $20. Shares are now trading at $24-$25 but I suspect we will see at least $40 per share in 2018.
Chipotle (CMG) – Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) is my 2nd favorite stock right now and is a good stock to buy. Shares have dropped from $730 to $350 due to E.Coli outbreak at several restaurants. If you want fresh, healthy food, this is the risk you face. Antibiotics are put in food for a reason and if you don’t want them, you risk getting food borne illnesses. CMG is a good stock pick because there are constantly long lines at most of the restaurants at any given hour of the day. The food is healthy and cheap and the company is expanding to pizza and Asian cuisine. In 10-20 years, Chipotle (CMG) will be one of the largest publicly traded restaurants stocks and they should soon start paying a dividend. In the short term, CMG at $450 or below is a steal and once this E.Coli mess is cleared up, the company will be back to greatness.
Small Caps Bull 3x Long ETF (TNA) – Looking for a good ETF to buy? TNA is the Russell 2000 on steroids because it gives you three times the return of the Russell 2000. TNA has rallied from $32-$58 since the election and is now forming a base in the $50’s. Anything below $45 is a strong buy in 2018. TNA always rises with the stock market and will see huge gains in the future.
IBM (IBM) – IBM is one of the cheapest tech stocks you can buy right now. IBM is a good stock to buy because Watson will eventually be huge and solve a lot of issues including potentially healthcare. IBM currently trades at $154 and should hit $200 again in 2018.
