Top Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018

Deutsche Bank, the Trump Organization’s largest creditor, said Monday that the Justice Department recently closed a criminal investigation into possible currency manipulation.

The Justice Department notified the German bank in a letter Feb. 13 that it was closing the investigation, Deutsche Bank said Monday in a public filing.

President Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions took office on Feb. 9.

In October, near the end of the Obama administration, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission dropped its own investigation into Deutsche Bank and currency manipulation.

Deutsche Bank has drawn special scrutiny in recent months because of its ties to Trump, which include billions of dollars of loans since the 1990s. Many of the loans have been paid off but four remain unpaid — on properties in Miami, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

The four loans were worth a total of $364 million when they were made, between 2012 and 2015, and are now worth roughly $300 million, according to an estimate by Bloomberg.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

Retirement investing is not what it used to be. In the old days, one could just invest in the safe stocks to buy, in blue chips, in a nice ladder of bonds, and do just fine.

Alas, the market has significantly changed. Much of this is due to the historically low interest rates weve had.

The problem with the Federal Reserves attempt to goose the economy is that it killed bond yields, forcing retired investors further out onto the risk curve, making it difficult to find safe stocks to buy. That has pushed stock prices far higher than they should be, if one subscribes (as I do) to the Peter Lynch theory that a stocks price should reflect its net income growth rate to be added to a list of stocks to buy.

    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.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now: Corning Incorporated(GLW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    CORNING INC has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, CORNING INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.73 versus $1.34 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 20.2% in earnings ($1.38 versus $1.73).

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate CORNING INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. 

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components industry and the overall market, CORNING INC’s return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    GLW, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 1.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 10.6%. Weakness in the company’s revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.

     

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Back on December 5th of 2013, we added Corning (GLW) to our list around $16 and change. The stock ended up moving to a high of just over $25 per share early last year for roughly a 50% gain. Well, the stock has since come off again trading all the way back down to under $16 per share back in August of last year, before finding its way back up above $18 just yesterday. The context here is two-fold. First, the valuation metrics for GLW are once again suggesting another undervalued opportunity for a Company that is the clear leader in specialty glass and ceramics.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now: Annaly Capital Management Inc(NLY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Amanda Alix]

    It was just about one year ago that QE3 made its debut, and mortgage REITs, particularly agency-only players like Annaly Capital (NYSE: NLY  ) , Armour Residential (NYSE: ARR  ) , and American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC  ) began moaning about the increased competition for mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

    Another tax-law provision gives favorable tax status to real-estate investment trusts. REITs make investments in real estate-related assets, and they’re required to pay out almost all their income to their shareholders annually.
    Simon Property Group (SPG) is one of the biggest REITs, focusing on shopping malls and paying a 3 percent yield. But other specialty areas of the REIT universe pay much higher dividends, with REITs like Annaly Capital (NLY) that invest in mortgage-backed securities topping the list with double-digit percentage yields.

    Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today as metal & mining stocks rallied sharply after President Donald J. Trump signed executive orders meant to increase spending on infrastructure.

    Freeport-McMoRangained 8.4% to $17.04 at 4:12 p.m. today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.7% to 2,280.07.

    In a note released yesterday, Jefferies analyst Christopher LaFemina and team noted that investor interest in Freeport-McMoRan and other miners has been rising:

    We met with 52 investors in the US over the past two weeks and have done calls with 117 investors globally over the past three weeks. This all follows a week of 30 investor meetings in London in December. The mix has been slightly more hedge funds than long only funds, but long only interest in mining has greatly increased. We expect the sector to outperform as fundamentals improve and long only rotation into mining continues. Buy Glencore, Freeport-McMoRan, Fortescue Metals, Rio Tinto (RIO), and BHP Billiton (BHP).

    Freeport-McMoRan’s market capitalization rose to $24.6 billion today from $21.4 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $12.2 billion on sales of $16.3 billion in 2015.

    Freeport-McMoRan is scheduled to report earnings tomorrow.

He added that these calls expire prior to the earnings release and he is wondering if someone is betting that the company is going to pre-announce earnings results.

    Risk assets are lower globally as the USD continues to lead bond yields, global equities and commodity prices lower. The DXY is down -3% since March 10th and the declines accelerated overnight as investor concerns over the size, timing and likelihood of fiscal stimulus grow. In addition, PBoC Governor Zhou Xiaochuan noted that China is at the end of ultra-easing measures. The recent drumbeat of news from China noting that they are moving away from growth at all costs has helped push commodity prices lower. Declines in copper, iron ore and steel accelerated overnight.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By William Romov]

    Over the last year, the number of short positions on gold stocks has fallen. One of these stocks is a Canadian gold mining company called NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE: NG). In the last 12 months, the volume of short bets on the stock declined 79%, to 522,400. This shows a shift in sentiment from bearish to bullish for gold.

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When an investor thinks of Canadian gold mining stocks, NovaGold Resources Inc. (USA) (NYSEMKT:NG) and Yamana Gold Inc. (USA) (NYSE:AUY) are often the first names to come to mind. And well they should. Yamana Gold is a $2.5 billion giant, and NovaGold Resources seems to have been around forever.

    Those two icons aren’t the only way to tap into Canada’s sizeable gold mining industry though. There’s a small, up-and-coming player called Taranis Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS:TNREF, TSX:TRO) that could end up becoming another key fixture of the country’s mining landscape.

    Taranis develops mineral deposits into mine-ready projects. Its primary project right now — and it’s enough to keep the company plenty busy for the next several years — is the Thor property located near Trout Lake, British Columbia. NI 43-101 resource reports (indicated and inferred)suggest Thor contains 6.9 million ounces of silver, 35,000 ounces gold, 57 million pounds of lead, 79.4 million pounds of zinc and 3.3 Million pounds of copper (roughly a 14 million ounce silver equivalent (“AgEq”) deposit*) laying in wait in a way that lends itself to the establishment of a low-cost, open pit mining operation. That’s roughly $300 million worth of marketable metals, and the estimates have been steadily getting bigger as Tanaris does more survey work.

    And 2017 could be a real breakout year for Taranis, as a lot of the work that’s been done to date starts to mean something. It’s got big exploration plans for this year… this spring/summer to be exact.

    The Phase 1 program was completed in September of last year, setting the stage for a more defined and much bigger Phase 2 definition-drilling within the next several weeks. This Phase 2 definition drilling slated for the middle of this year will drill down to between 6000 m and 10,000 m.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2018

Traders, investors and Star Wars fans alike must be thrilled with Walt Disney Co (DIS, $110.57) these days. As well they should.

In successive days, Disney announced a deal to acquire a large part of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) and debuted the latest installment of the Star Wars saga in a wide release. Whether Star Wars: The Last Jedi can eclipse the $2 billion mark like 2015s Star Wars: The Force Awakens did (and even beat Episode VII outright) remains to be seen, but its dramatic acquisition of Fox is unquestionably a blockbuster.

Disney stock is trading at a discount to the broader market and sits within reach of its all-time high of $122.08 hit more than two years ago. The blue chip looks like a buy on the heels of this news.

Heres why.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Buy Right Now

NEW YORK Welcome to where nearly everyone is below average.

It’s the world where investors try to pick which mutual funds will beat the market. It sounds great in theory, but the odds of doing it successfully over the long term can be slimmer than winning a lotto prize.

Twice each year, S&P Dow Jones Indices checks how fund managers are performing against indexes in various categories.

For the first time, it has a full 15 years of data to compare. That stretch of time captures not only two big rallies for the stock market (2002-07 and 2009 to today) but also the worst downturn since the Great Recession (2007-09), which means it should offer a look at the full breadth of a manager’s skills.

Most funds did poorly relative to their index, and not just ones that focus on U.S. stocks, whose performance has been getting the heaviest scrutiny. The majority of bond funds and foreign stock funds also failed to keep pace with their indexes for the 15 years through 2016.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Inphi (IPHI) provides high-speed analog and mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications, datacenter and computing markets. This stock closed up 4.7% at $13.25 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 838,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 202,080

    Volume % Change: 378%

    From a technical perspective, IPHI jumped higher here right above some near-term support at $12.44 with heavy upside volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last five months, with shares soaring higher from its low of $8.62 to its intraday high of $13.85. During that uptrend, shares of IPHI have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move briefly pushed shares of IPHI into breakout territory, since the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $13.50.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IPHI as long as it’s trending above some near-term support at $12.44 and then once it sustains a move or close above its new 52-week high at $13.85 with volume that hits near or above 202,080 shares. If we get that move soon, then IPHI will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are its next major overhead resistance levels at $14.79 to $16.94, or possibly even $18.

The Q4 2016 earnings report forsmall cap fitnessdevice stockFitbit Inc (NYSE: FIT) is scheduled for after the market closes onWednesday (February 22nd). Competition in the fitness device and wearables market has made Fitbit Inc theseventh most shorted stock on the NYSE with elevated short interest of 38.92% according to Highshortinterest.com. At the end of January, Fitbit Incs CEOwarned that:

Fourth quarter results are expected to be below our prior guidance range; however, we are confident this performance is not reflective of the value of our brand, market-leading platform, and companys long-term potential. While we have experienced softer-than-expected holiday demand for trackers in our most mature markets, especially during Black Friday, we have continued to grow rapidly in select markets like EMEA, where revenue grew 58% during the fourth quarter. To address this reduction in growth and what we believe is a temporary slowdown and transition period, we are taking clear steps to reduce operating costs. Looking forward, we believe Fitbit is in a unique position to stimulate new areas of demand by leveraging the data we collect to deliver a more personalized experience while developing upgraded versions of existing products and launching additional products to expand into new categories. As the overall wearable category leader, we exited the year with an engaged community of over 23.2 million active users, making us uniquely positioned to be the partner of choice for the healthcare ecosystem, which is a key component of our long-term strategy.

The U.S. economy is expected to strengthen next year, in part because of the government stimulus proposed at by President-elect Donald Trump, but job growth is likely to slow as the recovery approaches its eighth anniversary, according to a recent survey of economists.

The economy is projected to grow at a 2.3% annual rate in 2017, up from an estimated 1.6% this year, according to the average forecast of 53 economists surveyed earlier this month by Blue Chip Economic Indicators. Thats modestly above the tepid 2.1% average that has prevailed since the Great Recession ended in June 2009.

The big wild card: the Trump effect. Quick congressional passage and implementation of his plan to sharply increase infrastructure and defense spending and slashtaxes could mean faster growth. But delays or a significant scale-down by lawmakers could leave the higher interest rates his blueprint already has triggered without the benefits. And Trumps threats to slap big tariffs on China and Mexico risk trade wars that could further roil the economy.

top stock to invest in: Pinnacle Entertainment Inc.(PNK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK) has gained 56% this year; Las Vegas Sands (LVS) has climbed 38%. And Deutsche Bank has nice things to say about both today.

    Bloomberg

    First Pinnacle. Deutsche Bank’s Carlo Santarelli ponders the stock’s big move and comes away still seeing value in its shares. He writes:

    When we upgraded PNK in April, our thesis centered on the FCF strength of the combined entities [Pinnacle completed its acquisition of Ameristar Casinos on Aug. 14], a handful of favorable catalysts, easing regional gaming comps, & an inexpensive relative valuation. Given the shares’ sizeable move since then, we believe it is worth revisiting the investment case. Post the announcement of several asset sales and the closing of the transaction, we are adjusting our estimates, raising our PT to $30 from $24, and maintaining our bullish view at current levels given what we still believe to be an attractive free cash flow valuation, meaningful potential synergy realization beyond the $40 mm of announced benefits, and a free option on a lagging regional recovery.

    Santarelli also revisited Las Vegas Sands and there too, he likes what he sees. He writes:

    With…LVS at [a share price level] that have been challenging to break from over the last year plus, we believe this time is different and hence we see continued upward momentum…In the case of LVS, we see; 1) meaningful mass market strength continuing through year end, setting the stage for upward company and market estimate revisions for 2014, 2) continued cash flow appreciation and capital returns serving as downside protection and positive catalysts, and 3) continued shared gains, largely driven by table optimization and mass market strength, driving both estimates and sentiment.

    He also likes Wynn Resorts (WYNN), despite its 34% gain.Santarelli writes:

    As for WYNN, we believe near-term estimates continue to take a back seat to capital return
