Best Financial Stocks To Buy For 2018

Mitek Systems (NASDAQ: MITK) was recently named one of Forbes fastest growing companies and was added to the Russell 2000 index in June. The San Diego, CA based company is a pioneer in the fintech space and has seen increased traction and adoption mainly in its ID verification technology – which is crucial given the high levels of regulation in the financial services sector. Executives at the company have estimated Mitek’s mobile deposit market share to be about 65% and is projected to grow at 20% next year. Moreover, Mitek’s mobile verification market opportunity is projected to be worth close to $4 billion.

Investment Thesis:

Mitek has gained a dominant market share in an important fintech niche by offering a compelling value proposition. With increasing KYC (Know Your Customer) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulation, financial institutions need a cost-effective way to verify customer’s identity when onboarding takes place. P2P business lender Kabbage was able to reduce its customer rejection rate from 3% to 0.5% by implementing Mitek’s mobile ID verification solution. Using Mitek’s ID verification solution, a leading payments company was able to lift temporary restrictions on 92% of its users in a matter of minutes. Despite these positive customer outcomes, Mitek shares have dropped more than 20% over the last six months, creating a compelling entry point. The average analyst price target for Mitek is $9.25, a nearly 60% upside from current levels.

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2018

It was a mixed day for stocks as blue chips managed to squeak out a gain and small-caps got crushed ahead of tomorrow’s Fed announcement.

Keith Bedford for The Wall Street Journal

The S&P 500 fell 0.2% to 2,015.93 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22.40 points, or 0.1%, to 17,251.53. The Nasdaq Composite fell 0.5% to 4,728.67. The Russell 2000 tumbled 1.6% to 1,066.67, the first time since Sept. 2011 that the small-company benchmark fell by at least 1.5% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished higher.

The folks at Bespoke Investment Group consider the Russell 2000′s underperformance versus the S&P 500 this year:

Including today, the S&P 500 is down 1.6%, while the Russell 2000 is down 6.1%. Todays underperformance in small caps is just a continuation of what has been an extremely consistent trend of daily underperformance this year.

  • [By John Divine]

    Snap-on Incorporated (SNA) is my choice for the Best Stocks for 2016 competition. At a market cap of $10 billion, I doubt it will double over the next year, as some of the smaller companies in this competition might be able to.

    That said, Snap-on, which manufactures and markets hand tools and diagnostic equipment, is a rock-solid company with an attractive valuation and impressive growth. It goes for 22 times earnings, pays a consistent and modest dividend, and has been around since 1920.

    As cars get more tech-heavy and complicated, newer tools and better diagnostics will be needed — and that’s SNA’s bread ‘n’ butter.

Top 5 Financial Stocks To Watch Right Now

You’ve probably heard of margin loans, but do you know about investment lines of credit (ICLs)? Like margin loans, ICLs are backed by the assets in your portfolio but are used for non-securities investmentsmeaning you can’t use them to buy stocks and bonds. In my experience, ICLs also tend to be cheaper and offer higher loans relative to account value.

See Also: Kiplinger’s Interest Rate Outlook

If you’ve been looking at mortgages, home equity lines of credit, or business financing, you should take a look. Depending on your personal financial situation, ICLs can offer substantial loans at amazing rates.

What’s an ICL?

Let me give you an example. I recently had a client who was looking for a line of credit for his business, which he owns with a partner. With an ICL he was able to successfully leverage one of his personal accounts to facilitate the processand the rate was substantially lower than other conventional loans he was considering.

Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) investors should monitor the US political changes and central bank policy – currently these factors indicate a strong buy recommendation for Bank of America shares. Investors should keep an eye out for ratification of fiscal and infrastructure reforms Trump previously outlined throughout the course of his presidential campaign. In addition Fed policy decisions to raise interest rates and political measures designed to accelerate corporate dynamics are the key points of focus.

The US banking sector has had significant gains since the surprise election victory from Trump. US bank stocks across the board have been spurred on by the policy suggestions coming from Trump’s team. Investors have been reiterating this sentiment – sending capital into the Bank of America stock such that the share price has risen over 30% since November 2nd 2016 – to reach current levels exceeding 22USD per share. The policy proposals have included the possibility of repealing Dodd Frank regulation. This regulation was put in place following the financial crisis and has hurt banking business profits since its implementation – as it requires that conservative capital ratios and quality of capital standards are met to prevent future financial contagion. Loosening this regulation will be a liquidity driver for Bank of America.

Best Financial Stocks To Own Right Now: American International Group Inc.(AIG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    American International Group (AIG) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after its earnings fell well short of the Street consensus.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    AIG dropped 8.9% to $60.85 today, while the S&P 500 gained 0.5% to 2,349.25.

    Yes, AIG’s earnings were bad. It reported an operating loss of $2.72 a share, missing forecasts for a profit of 42 cents, according to Bloomberg. And it didn’t help that John Paulson’s Paulson & Co. cut its stake in the insurer.

    You’ll notice the forecast is different than what it was in my earlier post on AIG–and an AIG spokesperson even reached out to tell me that the consensus, at least according to FactSet, should had been for a loss of 61 cents a share. Why the confusion? RBC’s Mark Dwelle and Scott Heleniak have your answer:

    In reporting results AIG has recast all of its business segments, transferring various pieces to a Legacy unit, reallocating corporate expenses and net investment income as well as making some changes as to what is included within operating income, the most notable of which is that loss reserve discount effects in U.S. Commercial Insurance (and the Legacy unit) are now excluded from Operating Income. Accordingly, comparisons to prior reported results, and to some extent our 4Q16 estimates, require some reconciliation.

    Macquarie’sAmit Kumar considers the bull and bear cases on AIG:

    On 2/14, after market close, AIG reported a Q4 operating loss of $2.72 per share vs. our estimate of a $0.52 loss and street consensus of a $0.54 loss. Results are not directly comparable to street consensus due to lack of unanimity in terms of reserve adjustment estimates. Results included a higher than estimated $5.6 billion or $3.56/share of adverse development. The company had previously announced the possibility of a material reserve charge in the quarter. The bulls on the stock would note that this quar

    Analysts expect American International Group Inc (NYSE: AIG) to post quarterly earnings at $1.01 per share on revenue of $12.87 billion after the closing bell. AIG shares gained 0.38 percent to $66.39 in after-hours trading.
    Flowers Foods, Inc. (NYSE: FLO) reported in-line earnings for its fourth quarter, while sales missed expectations. Flowers Foods shares fell 1.87 percent to $20.45 in the after-hours trading session.
    Before the markets open, Diebold Nixdorf Inc (NYSE: DBD) is projected to report its quarterly earnings at $0.32 per share on revenue of $1.31 billion. Diebold Nixdorf shares slipped 0.73 percent to close at $27.20 on Monday.

    Wednesday was yet another record-setting day for the stock market, as the Dow climbed triple digits and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite followed the venerable average to unprecedented heights. Economic data showing rising inflation made it more likely that the Federal Reserve will look to boost interest rates at its next Federal Open Market Committee meeting next month, and the ripples throughout the bond market sent many investors to consider stocks instead. Yet despite the substantial rally, some stocks missed out on the move higher, and American International Group (NYSE:AIG), Teck Resources (NYSE:TECK), and Movado Group (NYSE:MOV) were among the worst performers on the day.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    BMO’s Charles Sebaski explains why he upgraded American International Group (AIG) to Outperform from market Perform:

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    AIG has been trading at discount to its tangible book given its mid-single digit return profile; however, we expect AIGs valuation to keep increasing with its improving return profile. We are now forecasting AIG to generate a 9.9% operating return on tangible common equity (ROtE) in 2018, which would be a 450 bp improvement from 2016. A double-digit return profile warrants the 1x multiple that we are applying to its tangible book value per share. While we expect AIGs return profile to benefit from lower taxes, we also expect the companys life and retirement business to improve from the rising interest rates as those spread businesses are more interest rate sensitive than the P&C business. That said, we expect continued improvement on both the loss and expense sides of the P&C as contributing factors to the ROtE improve.

    BMO also upgraded Arch Capital Group (ACGL), Brown & Brown (BRO), and Travelers (TRV).

    Shares of American International Group have declined 0.4% to $65.60 at 3:36 p.m. today, whileArch Capital Group has gained 2% to $87.90,Brown & Brown has advanced 0.5% to $44.65, andTravelers has risen 1.3% to $120.79.

    Some energy stocks just cant seem to catch a break and Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX) is one of those energy stocks. As we all know, FCX made some bad moves and decided to get into the oil business just as prices were peaking. That wouldnt be so bad, if it wasnt for the massive debt it took out to buy stakes in the gulf and other regions.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    With a neutral sector rating, we are working on evaluating risks to negative calls, and identifying potential value opportunities. Last week we noted more work might be worthwhile on Wabco Holdings (WBC), Terex, Manitowoc (MTW), and Caterpillar, two of those names have rallied for other reasons but the attractive price made the upside/downside skew up. We remain positive (OW) on Allison Transmission Holdings (ALSN) & United Rentals.

    Nintendo has a new stockholder: Shares of video game console maker Nintendo (NTDOY) rose slightly on news asset manager BlackRock (BLK) owns a 5.17% stake. With the new Nintendo Switch console being met with strong demand, the disclosure shouldn’t come as a shocker. If there is anything I have learned from covering Nintendo through the years, it’s that when the stock gets hot it tends to stay hot until something causes investors to reverse course. Nintendo’s stock is up 23% in the last three months, but look for more gains in the short-term.

The global diamond trade is slowing, and the world’s top supplier is blaming India’s crackdown on illicit cash.

De Beers’ sales of rough diamonds dropped to $418 million from $476 million over the past month, according to data from parent company Anglo American (AAUKF). That decline, the company said, is mainly because India decided to ban 500 and 1,000 rupee notes its two largest on Nov. 8.

“The trade in lower value rough diamonds is experiencing a temporary slowdown as a result of the demonetisation program in India,” De Beers CEO Bruce Cleaver said in a statement.

India has one of the fastest growing diamond markets in the world, according to a report last week by Bain & Company. The consultants said India was likely to surpass Europe and Japan to become the world’s third-largest diamond market by 2020.

But it’s also a country heavily dependent on paper currency, with over 90% of transactions taking place in cash. It’s not uncommon for Indians to purchase valuable jewelry, including gold and diamonds, with big bundles of rupee notes.

    American International Group (AIG) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after its earnings fell well short of the Street consensus.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    AIG dropped 8.9% to $60.85 today, while the S&P 500 gained 0.5% to 2,349.25.

    Yes, AIG’s earnings were bad. It reported an operating loss of $2.72 a share, missing forecasts for a profit of 42 cents, according to Bloomberg. And it didn’t help that John Paulson’s Paulson & Co. cut its stake in the insurer.

    You’ll notice the forecast is different than what it was in my earlier post on AIG–and an AIG spokesperson even reached out to tell me that the consensus, at least according to FactSet, should had been for a loss of 61 cents a share. Why the confusion? RBC’s Mark Dwelle and Scott Heleniak have your answer:

    In reporting results AIG has recast all of its business segments, transferring various pieces to a Legacy unit, reallocating corporate expenses and net investment income as well as making some changes as to what is included within operating income, the most notable of which is that loss reserve discount effects in U.S. Commercial Insurance (and the Legacy unit) are now excluded from Operating Income. Accordingly, comparisons to prior reported results, and to some extent our 4Q16 estimates, require some reconciliation.

    Macquarie’sAmit Kumar considers the bull and bear cases on AIG:

    On 2/14, after market close, AIG reported a Q4 operating loss of $2.72 per share vs. our estimate of a $0.52 loss and street consensus of a $0.54 loss. Results are not directly comparable to street consensus due to lack of unanimity in terms of reserve adjustment estimates. Results included a higher than estimated $5.6 billion or $3.56/share of adverse development. The company had previously announced the possibility of a material reserve charge in the quarter. The bulls on the stock would note that this quar

    Founded in 1993 and headquartered in Moline, IL, the bank has a strong regional lending base in Illinois and Iowa that should grow in line with the broader national economy. I particularly like the fact that the bank considers itself relationship-driven at a time when trust is in short supply.

In a recent article, the author stated that the “Amazon tax”, whichAmazon (NSDQ:AMZN)may be forced to collect in all 50 states will reduce Amazon’s pricing advantage. This is because, currently, online retailers like Amazon are not required to collect sales taxes in states where they do not have physical stores. Thus, this tax will increase the number of states where Amazon collects taxes, from 23 states to all 50 states. Amazon would have to transfer some of this cost to consumers and thereby increasing prices. Will the”Amazon tax” happen then? Here’s how this may impact AMZN stock.

The “Amazon tax”: The unemployment rate, mobile e-commerce& laziness

The above-quoted article also points to a report by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owned Washington Post. The report estimates that the “Amazon tax” might cut spending on Amazon.com by as much as 12% upon implementation.
