The Best Stocks to Invest Your Hard-Earned Money In: A 2019 Update
Stocks are up. Stocks are down. What’s hot on the stock market rollercoaster today?
We’ll tell you.
If you’re looking for good stocks to invest in for what’s left of 2019, then look no further. This mini-update for the second half of 2019 describes the status of the 3 hottest companies to invest in right now.
Learn what stocks to buy and why in the guide below.
1. Alphabet (GOOGL)
Alphabet is the parent company of Google. And, as you would imagine, Google has a 90% share of the search engine market. And let’s not forget that Youtube, the number one, 30-million-visitor-per-day social video platform, is also part of Google.
As such, no one should expect Alphabet’s success to slow down any time soon. As if this wasn’t already reason enough to invest in Alphabet, there’s more.
The best part is that Alphabet’s stock took a significant hit in June this year due to rumors about an antitrust probe against them. As a result, GOOGL has dropped over 16% since its highest point in April.
Since we can all expect GOOGL’s continual rise until, well, the end of the world, you’d best buy now.
2. Verizon (VZ)
Telecommunications is another very secure market to get into. Clearly, cell phones, mobile data, and the internet aren’t going away any time soon. But they are constantly growing and improving.
And, together, AT&T and Verizon sit firmly atop the wireless and legacy landline sectors of the telecommunications market.
Verizon has a more than 40% share in postpaid connections, the highest in the market. Plus, Verizon has a dividend yield of 4.5% that they (and their predecessors) have consistently paid for over 30 years.
3. AT&T (T)
AT&T may seem like a bad idea with more and more customers “cutting the cord” of cable television in favor of streaming services like Netflix. That’s not to mention that AT&T’s stock has steadily declined in recent years. (It is now 25% lower than its own average price in 2016.)
But this could very well be because AT&T is strategically biding its time.
It’s rumored that AT&T is reformatting all its cable programming products into a single, all-in-one service plan. Imagine all the content AT&T has access to, available to stream at a monthly price to rival that of Netflix. And let’s not forget that AT&T owns Time-Warner.
If this truly is what the future holds for AT&T, a big turnaround could be on the way. And that, of course, would mean that the current price of AT&T’s stock is the lowest we’re going to see for a long time.
Good Stocks To Invest In July 2019
No one can really guess the future. But if you’re going to give it a try, heed this advice.
Alphabet, Verizon, and AT&T are very good stocks to invest in currently. If you’re planning on playing the stocks in late 2019, look into these three companies first.
