In the case of Amazon, this simply will not be the case—especially in 2019.

Why you ask would Disney make our list? They have made some big moves in 2018, moves which position this company for a big jump in the value of their stock come 2019. Specifically, their acquisition for most of Fox coupled with their large library of movie content hints to their development of a streaming service.

The Disney streaming service has been talked about for a while. Some see their lack of entrance into streaming as a weakness, but it's simply not. While their streaming service seems to currently be in limbo, once it is live you can bet every family with kids will be willing to shell out $9.99 a month. And when this day comes, stock prices will climb.

Berkshire Hathaway

With Warren Buffet at 87 years old, eventually he will have to step away as the figure head of Berkshire Hathaway. This simple fact is why Berkshire Hathaway is a top stock to buy in 2019. Putting aside the potential retirement of Buffet, Berkshire Hathaway is a great buy: it's practically a mutual fund with a diversified group of holdings—but without the management fee!

So why do we mention Buffet's potential retirement then? When Buffet retires, the firm could break up, over time, and investors would see major benefits from this process.
