August data included a downturn in industrial production, capacity utilization, and retail sales. Business inventories were unchanged, while sales declined slightly, but not enough to change the inventory to sales ratio. Consumer prices increased, while producer prices were unchanged. Consumer confidence held steady. In the distant rear view mirror, in 2015, median household income increased substantially.

My usual note: I look at the high frequency weekly indicators because while they can be very noisy, they provide a good Now-cast of the economy, and will telegraph the maintenance or change in the economy well before monthly or quarterly data is available. They are also an excellent way to “mark your beliefs to market.”

In general, I go in order of long leading indicators, then short leading indicators, and then coincident indicators.

swing trading: Green Brick Partners, Inc.(GRBK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedgoing long on small cap homebuilder stockGreen Brick Partners (NASDAQ: GRBK):

    For Green Brick Partners, we’re mainly feeding off of the hammer-shaped reversal bar from last week. That long-tailed low only had to kiss the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.45 to kick-start a reversal, and we’ve seen some nice bullish follow-through so far. Ideally we’d like to see a move above the February ceiling around $9.90, but we fear waiting that long could leave us chasing it higher. See, what you can’t see on the chart (because it’s further back) is that GRBK is no stranger to multi-point runups. Based on its past runs, Green Brick Partners could be in the high teens before you even know it.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    BAE Systems, an F-35 partner of Lockheed Martin (LMT) , counts its largest customer as the U.S government, although it is a key supplier to both American and British defense departments.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Much of this was based on educated guesswork, however, as we extrapolated what we knew about the finances at SpaceX rivalsBoeing(NYSE:BA),Lockheed Martin(NYSE:LMT),Orbital ATK(NYSE:OA), andAirbus(NASDAQOTH:EADSY), and applied it to what wethoughtthat might mean for SpaceX’s own finances. It would have been a whole lot easier to just take a good hard look at SpaceX’s own financial documents, and get the answers straight from the source.

  • [By Alex McGuire]

    That’s because SpaceX is one of the world’s most unique companies. Although it’s categorized as a traditional aerospace company like Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) or Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT), SpaceX focuses on long-term goals over short-term profits. In fact, its biggest plan is to eventually colonize Mars.

    Orbital operates two main rocket families — Minotaur rockets for payloads ranging from less than a ton to just over three tons, and Antares rockets for payloads up to eight tons — both targeting the midrange of the rocket market. When a satellite isn’t big enough to require a SpaceX Falcon 9 (three times as powerful as Orbital’s most robust rocket), Boeing Delta IV, or Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) Atlas V — but is too big for a Vector-R — that’s when Orbital ATK steps in and offers its services.

    Its this kind of environment that has made the iShares U.S. Aerospace & Defense ETF(ITA) one of the best-performing ETFs over the past decade. Companies like Lockheed Martin Corporation (LMT) and General Dynamics Corporation (GD) have thrived by producing solutions funded by a thick military wallet.

    The company’s current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Aerospace & Defense industry and the overall market, LOCKHEED MARTIN CORP’s return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.

On Tuesday, the White House introduced the American Health Care Act to the American people. White House press secretary and communications director Sean Spicer compared the new healthcare bill to the Affordable Health Care Act, saying:

Obamacare was an overcomplicated bill that served the special interests and not the American people. These over 974 pages that were passed and then we were told we had to read them are filled with carve-outs by over $1 billion of healthcare-related lobbying that were spent on the year that Obamacare was crafted.

Our plan, in far fewer pages, 123 — much smaller, much bigger — so far we’re at 57 for the repeal plan and 66 pages for the replacement portion. We’ll undo this. And remember, half of it, 57 of those pages, are the repeal part. So when you really get down to it, our plan is 66 pages long, half of what we actually even have there. We’ll undo the massive disaster and replace it with a plan to return healthcare back to the patient.

    Heading into its earnings following the close of trading yesterday, shares of American International Group (AIG) had gained 34% from its low on Jun. 28 to Feb. 14. Then the bottom fell out.

  • [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.

    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

    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. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Let Clients Figure the Retirement Funding Catastrophe Out for Themselves

Consultants at Milliman Inc. have come up with hard numbers that may back up an allegation patients and providers have been making for years: that many health insurers have skimpy mental health and addiction treatment services provider lists.

The consultants tried to get a rough estimate of the size of the behavioral health provider network adequacy problem by comparing how often patients in preferred provider organization (PPO) plans use out-of-network providers for behavioral health care, and how often the PPO plan patients use out-of-network providers for other types of care.

The Millman consultants based their results on analysis of a batch of medical claim records, collected from 2013 through 2015, for about 42 million U.S. PPO plan members.

For inpatient care, PPO patients were between 2.8 times and 4.2 times more likely to use out-of-network providers for behavioral care than for other types of care.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own Right Now: Ono Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (OPHLF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Merck could achieve a consistent advantage versus BMS in treatment of 1L NSCLC. There is a precise crossroad that will determine the future of these two companies in this field: the question of whether or not Keytruda will be approved in May. Both the market and investors believe that it will indeed gain approval and BMS’s stock is already paying for that. In the short term, the repercussions will be the contractions in the sales of Opdivo in 2L and a bigger obstacle for Opdivo+Yervoy in 1L. But the BMS’s combo can catch up, thanks to a bigger efficacy, as I will explain in a future article. Meanwhile, a recent trial established that Merck has to pay BMS $625M plus royalties, as it infringed BMS’s intellectual property related to the use of anti-PD1 antibodies. The royalties will be 6.5% for sales between January 2017 and the end of 2023, followed by a 2.5% rate for the period from January 2024 to the end of 2026. Bristol-Myers Squibb will share the money by giving a quarter of the amount to the Japanese Ono Pharmaceutical (OTC:OPHLF), the company which had discovered Opdivo.

Count local TV station owners among the industries emboldened byDonald Trump.

In changing of the guards at the White House, the local TV industry sees an opportunity in their ongoing quest to toss out the Federal Communication Commissions rules on media cross-ownership that barmedia companies from owning newspapers and TV stations in the same market.

The National Association of Broadcasters, a trade group for TV station owners, “is cautiously optimistic a Trump FCC will take a fresh look at reforming outdated local broadcast ownership rules, said Dennis Wharton, NAB’s executive vice president of media relations. These are ‘I Love Lucy’ era rules in a ‘Modern Family’ world.

stock trading system: Caesars Entertainment Corporation(CZR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) and Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) are two of the most well known gaming companies in the world. But they’re very different companies with very different futures ahead.

  • [By AlphaStreetResearch]

    Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CZR) is a highly overvalued gaming, hotel, and entertainment company with deteriorating fundamentals on all levels in a highly competitive environment. The company’s stock has seen a massive run to the upside on the coattails of other casino and entertainment companies in the space. A considerable catalyst for the push higher in these stocks is the good news coming out of Macau, but this is an area where Caesars has absolutely no exposure and will be locked out of for the foreseeable future after failing to take appropriate licensing measures. Below is our introduction into the business model, its weaknesses, and the new selling or shorting opportunity that exists for CZR after the recent appreciation in share price. Investors will soon realize that there is little upside value in this company and that there are much better opportunities in this space. The company is now amidst a major struggle from a debt standpoint with major deadlines approaching over the next year and a half. The company is in no position to thrive going forward unless major steps are taken to overhaul the company’s capital structure. Caesars Entertainment has a market cap of $3.19 Billion after the stock has moved up over 225% year to date and reports its next quarter on October 31, 2013. With this in mind, we value CZR at $21.00 by year-end of 2013 and $14.00 by August 1, 2014, a decrease of 40% from current levels. We will later highlight:

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    While Stratasys’ stock is still down significantly from its all-time high, it’s showing signs of life this year. It’s gained 17% in 2017, through March 3, outpacing rival 3D Systems’ (NYSE:DDD)9.3% gain and the S&P 500’s total return of 6.9%.

With major market indexes at record highs, natural-gas stocks are among the few depressed industry groups. Blame a warm winter and weakening gas prices.
