Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

Square (NYSE:SQ) stock has been on fire…what else is new? SQ has risen 57% in the past three months, 180% so far this year and 224% over the past 12 months. To say this has been a frustrating stock for bears would be an understatement.

Not long ago, Square’s market capitalization was less than $10 billion. Now its market cap is roughly $37 billion. Square stock has been on a run like few others, and eventually stocks that rally to that extent take a rest. Is Square next?

Let’s look at the charts first.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Four of the five biggest marijuana stocks, including Canopy,Aurora Cannabis(NASDAQOTH:ACBFF), andAphria(NASDAQOTH:APHQF), have all more than doubled, while shares ofTilray(NASDAQ:TLRY) have absolutely skyrocketed. Tilray’s gains have come in part because of its unusually low float and heavy short interest — and because the pot stock was the first to list directly on an American exchange when it had its IPO in July.

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    There will be a lot of demand for dried marijuana flower when Canada opens its recreational marijuana market next week, but the biggest market opportunity for marijuana growers, including Aphria Inc. (NASDAQOTH:APHQF), isn’t for marijuana the commodity but for marijuana the ingredient. Canada’s regulators are expected to give an OK next year for the sale of cannabis-infused beverages, edibles, and other consumer goods products, and if that happens, the lowest-cost marijuana producer could be positioned to profit most.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) disappointed investors the last time it reported quarterly results in August because its revenue growth was underwhelming. Even worse, the Canadian marijuana grower predicted that its EBITDA could weaken in the future.

    Technology trends move quickly, but investors have to try to look past the cyclical demand to find businesses with enduring competitive advantages. With that broader focus in mind, we asked a few Motley Fool contributors to offer up stock ideas that look attractive over the long term. Read on to see why Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) topped that list.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Garmin(NASDAQ:GRMN) recently closed the books on a strong fiscal 2018 that marked its third straight year of rising revenue and improving profitability. That would be a notable result for any consumer electronics specialist, but it’s especially impressive considering Garmin had to adapt to big consumer demand shifts in fitness trackers and automotive GPS devices.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

Investors seemed inclined to take their foot off the gas after the strong start to the year, as fears about possible deterioration in economic strength and the geopolitical climate weighed on sentiment. Bad news from some high-profile companies also hurt the overall market. Domino’s Pizza (NYSE:DPZ), Carbon Black (NASDAQ:CBLK), and NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.
