Top Stock Picks for the Week of Jan 3, 2018

Las Vegas Sands Corp. LVS owns resorts in Asia and the United States, including in Macao, Las Vegas and in Pennsylvania. This Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) has both growth and a big dividend, which is currently yielding 4.2%. Earnings are on the move higher as business has improved in Macao and consumers are spending on leisure in the hot US economy. Earnings are expected to rise 23% in 2017.

KB Home KBH builds houses in 36 markets in 7 states. It’s a rare growth and value stock as it has a PEG ratio of just 0.8. With the strong economy, low mortgage rates and low unemployment levels, consumers are buying houses again. Earnings growth has turned around the last 2 years and is expected to jump 57% in fiscal 2017. KB Home reports fourth quarter earnings on January 10 so investors should tune in to for any fiscal 2018 guidance. Even with shares up over 100% in 2017, they still have attractive valuations with a forward P/E of just 14.7.
