Top 5 Value Stocks To Invest In 2018

Most Americans don’t realize the world’s largest securities market is not the stock market. According to the World Bank, the global value of all publicly traded stocks is somewhere north of $70 trillion. But that’s more than one-third less than the value of the bond market worth roughly $110 trillion. More importantly, with the explosion of debt financing, bond markets are growing much faster than global stock markets.

For the uninitiated, bonds are a type of loan where companies and governments borrow money from investors. In exchange, investors receive interest payments based on the bond’s coupon (interest) rate. The investor continues receiving interest payments until the bond matures. At maturity, the investor receives the final interest payment as well as a return of the original investment. Should the borrower fail to return the principal at maturity, the borrower faces bankruptcy.

Now, while the bond market has been growing rapidly, there’s an underlying problem of liquidity bubbling just beneath the surface. You see, prior to the financial crisis, large banks used their balance sheets to facilitate trading in the bond markets. They did this by purchasing large blocks of debt to hold until they could find a buyer for the other side of the trade. And with the vastness of the bond market, finding a buyer was easy.

Best Medical Stocks To Watch For 2018

To say that the GOP’s “repeal and replace” version of the Affordable Care Act is an improvement over Obamacare is a lie. It’s a classic bait-and-switch scheme where a shifty operator takes away a relatively good plan and replaces it with a raw deal.

Since President Trump and his GOP allies called Obamacare a “catastrophe,” they acted as if getting rid of it was a national emergency, instead of trying to fix its flaws. Now a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report estimates that from 24 million to 56 million people could lose coverage under Rep. Paul Ryan’s replacement plan, which, for the sake of convenience, we’ll call “Ryancare,” which they both support and are in the process of ramming through the House of Representatives.

Rep. Ryan (R-Wisc.), the speaker of the house, bizarrely called the CBO report “encouraging.” He was heartened by the CBO projection that his plan would lower the federal budget deficit — at the expense of people losing their health insurance, and perhaps their lives, because they couldn’t afford medical care in the future under his fractured plan.

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.
