2 Industries to Invest in 2019, and 2 Poised to Plunge


Picking great stocks can be tricky, but you can do it successfully — and helping individual investors do it is pretty much our raison d’etre at The Motley Fool. So if you’re ready to add more companies to your portfolio, we always have suggestions. As Motley Fool Money host Chris Hill previews the new year with senior analysts Aaron Bush and Matt Argersinger, he poses for them a core question: What sectors and spaces do they predict will really heat up in 2019?

For Bush, it’s the software-as-a-service space — and he has a three-stock basket to recommend. Argersinger, meanwhile, offers the perhaps counterintuitive view that with interest rates and inflation rising, real estate — and homebuilders in particular — are poised to deliver a rebound over the next few years. On the other hand, they suggest staying away from cannabis stocks and Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), even after their recent declines.

    Agree – Pot is like Cryptos as mentioned by Pollini. Facebook and other social networks are overhyped. When you are looking for a good investment it's best to look for opportunity not past trends. Checking out VQN today as a way to be in real estate.

    Twilio is way up. I've bought stocks at top and badly regretted it later. I feel I missed it. Suggest it earlier. Ha
    I agree Pot stocks are like Cryptos. I'm staying away.
    FB has great margins and should be good long term.
