Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2018

Jim Rogers, 2013 FreedomFest

U.S. sanctions against Russia have unexpectedly produced a number of positive consequences for Moscow, according to legendary investor Jim Rogers.

You see, when former President Barack Obama instituted the sanctions back in 2014, they were designed in conjunction with Europe to punish Russian President Vladimir Putin for his annexations of Crimea and backing rebels in eastern Ukraine.

However, according to Rogers, these sanctions were nothing more than a “foolish mistake” that led Russia to become stronger and more self-sufficient…

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2018

"Short Sellers Retreat Amid Rally," ran the headline in the Wall Street Journal.   Curious readers stopped and stared. It was the premise of the headline that arrested them. Who knew that there was even one bear left to give ground at the 100-month mark of the post-2008 levitation?   El toro is the topic at hand. It's a most unusual bull market (we count as one the updrafts in stocks and bonds). An unzestful, low-volume, and low-volatility affair, it seems to belong on a psychiatrist's couch. We write to catalogue its singularities with the purpose of addressing the always pertinent question: What to do with money besides enjoy it?   No. 1 is the zest deficit. Since the S&P 500 Index bottomed at an intraday low of 666.79 on March 6, 2009, the blue chips have appreciated by 271%. The country has grown, too, although – famously – the economic expansion leaves much to be desired. Trailing 12-month earnings for the S&P 500 peaked in the third quarter of 2014, and disappointments abound in the data that purport to measure growth in GDP and productivity.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2018

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has plenty of reasons to celebrate after Apple’s  (AAPL)  incredible top and bottom line beat for its fiscal third quarter — several billion, in fact. 

The Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)  CEO, 86, famously avoided tech stocks for decades, saying, “If there’s lots of technology, we won’t understand it.” However, Berkshire started buying shares of Apple in mid-2016 and ended the year with about 59 million shares in the tech company. In January, Berkshire nearly doubled that stake to 133 million shares. The increased stake gave Berkshire about 2.5% of Apple’s outstanding shares.

Buffett announced the increased stake on February 27 on CNBC when shares were trading around $136.66, meaning the shares were worth about $18 billion at the time. With Apple trading at $157.25 on Wednesday morning, Berkshire has made at least $2.7 billion off its 133 million shares of Apple since February 27 for a current stake worth $20.9 billion. However, because Berkshire first disclosed a stake in Apple in the first half of 2016 when shares were trading just above $100, investors can assume Berkshire has made even more money off of its Apple stake.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2018: Tesla Motors, Inc.(TSLA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Tesla Motors (TSLA) has so many moving pieces sometimes it’s hard to know how to analyze it’s profit potential. Case in point: Tesla put out a release detailing how much it would charge for the use of its SuperChargers, something that is currently free to Tesla owners and was announced back in November. Those owners will continue to enjoy free charging for the life of their cars, as will anyone who orders a Tesla by Jan. 15. After that you’ll be paying for the service.

    Getty Images

    Still Tesla claims that it will be providing charges at below cost, and Tesla says “it will not be a profit center” for the company. That doesn’t mean it won’t improve its profits. In fact, Global Equities Research’s Trip Chowdhry claims that by fiscal 2020, the SuperChargers will add $2.6 billion to revenue, the “majority of which will go directly into Tesla’s bottom line.” Here’s his math:

    Assumption – 2020:

    Average Time at supercharger = 30 min

    (Estimated for 2020 – includes vehicles from 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020) Number of Vehicles = 1,500,000

    Days in a Year = 365

    Average Price per minute (Average of Teir 1 and Teir 2 – across the whole country) = $0.16

    Revenues to Tesla = $2.62 billion; which goes directly to the bottom line

    Of course, a lot will depend on Tesla getting to 1.5 million cars on the road, up from Chowdhry’s estimated 100,000 in 2017.

    Shares of Tesla Motors have gained 3.2% to $237.04 at 3:31 p.m. today.

    Earlier today, we noted that Goldman Sachs analystDavid Tamberrino had cut Tesla (TSLA) to Sell from Neutral, arguing that the Model 3 launch, solar business, and its need for cash skewed the risk to the downside. Should investors take their advice? Possibly, says the folks at Bespoke Investment Group, but not because of the Goldman Sachs downgrade.

    Tesla/James Lipman

    See, the firm has a history of upgrading the stock when it rallies and downgrading on pullbacks, something that hasn’t worked out too well for investors in the past. “Given their history on the name, we definitely wouldnt be hitting the sell button based solely on the Goldman downgrade,” Bespoke says.

    But that doesn’t mean that you should be buying Tesla’s shares either. Bespoke explains why:

    While it may seem like Teslas recent rally took it to new all-time highs, the longer-term chart shows that the stock has actually topped out at these levels two prior times over the last three years. Shares have basically traded in a range between $150 and $280 since the start of 2014. For TSLA to break out of this range, it needs to get above $280 and then build support there over a period of weeks and months. It may sound counter-intuitive, but we wouldnt be buyers unless it got over that $280 level or it traded to the low end of its range in the low-$200s. Anything in between is considered no-mans land.

    Shares of Tesla have dropped 4.9% to $244.69 at 2:27 p.m. today.

Social media is a multi-billion-dollar industry where ordinary people become overnight sensations and companies cash in on peoples apparently insatiable need to be constantly connected.

The many different platforms have enhanced our lives by making us feel connected and that our opinion matters. Yet what if all this sharing has a dark side?

How to tell if social media is causing you to overspend

Here are some questions to determine if your overspending is caused by social media.

Do you constantly check to see what your friends bought?Are you spending more time than usual on social media?Do you feel anxious, jealous or dissatisfied with life after checking social media?

It used to be just the neighbors and co-workers some people tried to keep up with or outdo. Now its everyone in your social circles, posting about their latest luxury cruise just because or posting beautiful pictures of their latest $100,000 kitchen remodel on Pinterest.
