    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Two big stories will headline a busy Tuesday. The first is across the Atlantic Ocean, where the British Parliament will wrangle over Prime Minister Theresa May’s last-minute deal with Europe on a soft “Brexit.” Late Monday, May won legally binding support from the EU ahead of Tuesday’s vote. The Prime Minister secured three documents – a joint statement, a joint instrument, and a unilateral declaration – all aimed at addressing one of the biggest challenges to the split between Britain and the EU: the border between Northern Ireland – a British province – and Ireland. Boeing stock continues to slide – falling another 3.2% — after a downgrade from Raymond James Financial Inc. (NYSE: RJF). The company is reeling after a second Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane in five months crashed. Although the Federal Aviation Commission has said that the planes are airworthy, the U.S. agency expects it will order design changes to the planes’ systems and signaling. With that in mind, Raymond James anticipates that the latest crash will lead to delays in orders. Also, Australia has joined China and Ethiopia on a list to suspend the jet from service until the crash in Ethiopia has been investigated. Here in the United States, California Senator Dianne Feinstein called on the U.S. government to suspend all 737 Max 8 flights.
    Despite a fall in Boeing stock, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) shares popped 3.47% and Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) rose 1.46% after both received positive new ratings from analysts. Nvidia Corp. (NASDAQ: NVDA) also went to bat with a 6.97% surge after announcing its purchase of Mellanox Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) for $6.8 billion. Mellanox stock rose 7.78% at the same time. These rallies could give the Dow Jones Industrial Average the life it needs to continue its long-te

    Monday was an extremely strong day for the stock market, as major indexes finished well above where they started the session. Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

    The fourth quarter of 2018 was the worst fourth quarter in more than a decade for the graphics card market, according to Jon Peddie Research. Overall board shipments plunged more than 40% year over year as both Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) and rival NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) dealt with the aftermath of the bursting of the cryptocurrency bubble. Sluggish demand and excess inventory have caused big problems for both companies.

It operates in the business of developing novel therapies for the management of CNS disorders segment. The Company’s product candidate portfolio includes two late-stage candidates, AXS 02 and AXS 05, which the Company is developing for multiple indications. The Company is also developing AXS 06 for the treatment of chronic pain disorders. AXS 06 is in preclinical development.

AXS 02

The Company’s product candidate, AXS 02, contains disodium zoledronate tetrahydrate. AXS-02 is an oral, targeted, non opioid therapeutic for chronic pain. AXS 02 is an inhibitor of osteoclasts, which are bone remodeling cells that break down bone tissue. The Company is developing AXS 02 for the treatment of pain in over three conditions, such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS); knee osteoarthritis (OA) associated with bone marrow lesions (BMLs), and chronic low back pain (CLBP), associated with type I, or mixed type I and type II Modic changes (MCs). The Company initiated a Phase III trial with AXS 02 for the treatment of pain in patients with CRPS, which it refers to as the CREATE 1 study. AXS 02 is granted Orphan Drug Designation by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Orphan Medicinal Product Designation by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of CRPS.

AXS 05 uses bupropion as a drug delivery method to inhibit DM metabolism and increase its bioavailability. The Company initiated randomized, double-blind, active-controlled trial to assess the efficacy and safety of AXS 05 in the treatment of TRD, which it refers to as the STRIDE-1 study.

The Company competes with Eli Lilly and Company.

    Stocks to Watch Today: TGT, CRM, FB
    This morning, shares of Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) popped nearly 6% after a strong Q4 earnings report. The company reported earnings per share of $1.53 on total revenue of $22.98 billion. Wall Street expected $1.52 per share on sales of $22.91 billion. The firm reported very strong online sales (up 25%) and a 5.3% jump in same-store sales. Analysts had expected a 4.5% increase in same-store sales. The report is the latest sign that Target has emerged as a formidable competitor to Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT). Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) is under fire again due to security concerns around its sign-in features. The company has not allowed users to opt out of the key feature that lets users look up others by phone number and e-mail address. Many people have added their phone numbers in the past thinking it would only be used for two-factor authentication and security. Critics argue this is the latest episode of Facebook compromising user information. Shares of Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE: CRM) are in focus as the cloud computing giant plans to report earnings after the bell Tuesday. CRM stock is already up 20% so far this year. And many analysts expect the firm to report earnings per share of $0.55 on top of $3.56 billion in revenue. Yesterday, Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff predicted that $30 billion in annual revenue for the cloud computing giant is “right around the corner.” Look for earnings reports from AeroVironment Inc.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019

On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested going long on small cap international school stock Nord Anglia Education Inc (NYSE: NORD):

We’re stepping into Nord Anglia Education on a little bit of faith that the convergence of support and resistance since early last year is building up a breakout move. We also like the way NORD is finding support at its key long-term moving average lines, which should aid any bullish thrust by acting as a launchpad. What’s really so compelling, however, is the way the bullish volume has been building. The buyers have been testing the waters, but many more are apt to be waiting in the wings.

Note that unless we get a very good jump soon, we won’t be lingering in this trade for very long. The ceiling at $24.52 is a big one we don’t want to see any hesitation at.

    The Intelligent Investor was written in 1949, but it’s still as relevant nearly 70 years later as it was back then. Benjamin Graham was right about how crazy the market can be at times. I think the experiences of two very different biotech stocks this week — Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) and Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY)– prove the point.

  • [By ]

    Abbvie Inc. (ABBV) , for example, is generally just a pharmaceutical stock. However, the company also marketed Marinol, an FDA-approved synthetic cannabinoid meant to help nausea and vomiting in cancer and AIDS patients. INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (INSY) is a pharmaceutical company that got approval from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for a synthetic cannabis – despite having donated to anti-marijuana advocacy groups in the past.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Insys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY) and Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CARA) fall into the third category. However, the designations of both Insys and Cara as marijuanastocks warrant an asterisk. Insys’ cannabinoid drug Syndros is based on a synthetic form of THC, the primary psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Cara has a cannabinoid receptor agonist, CR701, in preclinical development.

    The company’s Powder River Basinassets also generated strong drilling results, with several wells topping 1,000 BOE/D. Finally, while the company did drill four wells in the Bakken, it has deferred completing them until later this year.

    Presto, West Texas Intermediate crude rose 3% to $71.18, the highest since December 2014, boosting shares of oil companies including Occidental (OXY) , which gained 4.8%, Marathon (MRO) , up 3.8%, and Apache (APA) , which gained 2.5%. Spot gasoline also rose 2.7% to $2.17 a gallon, boding ill for the summer driving season in the U.S. and potentially eroding any gains middle-class Americans received from the Trump tax cuts.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)could outperform in that scenario.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) is another oil producer built for $50 oil. At that level, Marathon can generate enough cash to grow its U.S. oil production 25% to 30% this year, while at $60 oil, the company can produce $500 million in free cash — and even more at current prices. Marathon Oil has a range of options for that money, including buying back shares, boosting the dividend, paying off debt, or acquiring more drillable land.

Best Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019

The massive demand for legal marijuana, as evidenced by the $6.7 billion in sales in North America in 2016, is creating an even bigger demand for skilled workers in the legal marijuana industry.

And one of the surprisingly lucrative jobs is as a marijuana plant trimmer. In fact, some of these people could make as much as $500 per day.

VideoMarijuana Workers Are Making Thousands

The work is tedious and includes sitting for hours doing the repetitive task of trimming pot plants with scissors over and over again. According to ABC, cannabis farmer Tim Blake, owner of the 155-acre farm Healing Harvest Farms (Laytonville, Calif.), usually paid his workers through a barter system.

In exchange for trimming cannabis plants, workers would receive medical marijuana. But for 2017, his bud trimmers will receive monetary compensation.

And the pay will be quite generous for fast trimmers…

Blake told ABC in an April 20 report that slower trimmers make roughly $100 a day. That would roughly be the equivalent of making $12 per hour and working eight hours (before taxes).

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

There are a number of great companies in the market today. By using the ModernGraham valuation model, I have selected the 10 lowest PEmg (price to normalized earnings) companies. Each company has been determined to be undervalued and suitable for the Defensive Investor according to the ModernGraham approach.

Defensive Investors are defined as investors who are not able or willing to do substantial research into individual investments, and therefore need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk.

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBY)

Bed Bath & Beyond qualifies for both the Defensive Investor and the Enterprising Investor. The Defensive Investor is only initially concerned with the poor dividend history. The Enterprising Investor is only concerned with the lack of dividends. As a result, all value investors should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.

    The biotechs and emerging pharma havebeen under pressure from politicians attacking drug prices. That doesn’t mean that there are not some big winners out there. Sometimes the biggest winners are companies most investors have never heard of.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018

Shares of Array BioPharma (ARRY) have risen by 57% since my original article was published last August (at one point they麓d nearly doubled before the recent pullback).

The stock was later added as one of our 20 holdings in the Core Biotech model account and is currently our biggest loser, in the red by 21%.

In my latest update piece from December, I restated the following keys to the bullish thesis:

A compelling rationale for the approval of the combination of binimetinib and encorafenib for the treatment of patients with BRAF-mutant advanced, unresectable or metastatic melanoma, supported by strong data from the pivotal COLUMBUS trial. Large market opportunities targeted, an example being the global melanoma market for MEK/BRAF inhibitors of over $1 billion. The company麓s vast pipeline and past history of advantageously monetizing its noncore assets, just as had occurred with the Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) drug development deal for autoimmune disorders with the larger company footing the bill. Other positive prior pacts included collaborations with Merck (NYSE:MRK) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY) along with monetization of rights in Japan and South Korea. Chart

The team likes Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), commonly referred to as “the Google of China,” as well as Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY), the company behind the extremely popular messaging and social media app WeChat.

    In this segment of the Motley Fool Moneypodcast, host Chris Hill and senior Fool analysts Jason Moser, David Kretzmann, and Jeff Fischer put Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU) under the microscope. The Chinese search leader has a massive presence in the world’s most populous market, and with revenue up 31%, it’s apparent that it is putting its troubles with the government in Beijing in the rearview mirror. But the stock is still only trading for six times revenue. Time to give it a look?

  • [By WWW.STREETAUTHORITY.COM]

    Thanks to these fundamental economic drivers, Asian internet firms like Tencent Holdings (OTC: TCEHY) and Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) have seen their stock prices soar 100% over the last year. JD.com (Nasdaq: JD) and Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU) are trading higher by around 50% over the same period. I fully expect this bull market to continue over the long term.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018: AVG Technologies N.V.(AVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Igor Novgorodtsev]

    InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.

     Stocks of Federated Investors (FII) fell approximately 9% in 2015, yet Oja expects a big turnaround in 2016, once again due to the prospect of higher rates ahead. 

     

    "The money market fund business, which is unprofitable now, should become more profitable as rates rise because Federated has to reimburse for the servicing fees for these funds," said Oja, who also admires the fund company’s 3.5% dividend yield. 

     

    Oja added that Federated also has a "good core business of equity and fixed-income asset management."

Best Tech Stocks For 2018

Amazon.com Inc., YouTube and Twitter Inc. are all weighing bids for streaming rights to “Thursday Night Football,” according to people with knowledge of the matter, providing the latest evidence of technology companies’ growing interest in live sports.

The three are bidding as much as hundreds of millions of dollars for rights that will run for as long as five years, according to the people, who asked not to be identified discussing the negotiations. The National Football League is getting help in the talks from 21st Century Fox Inc., which acquired the TV rights to the games through 2022.

The NFL is looking for a technology company to offer an interactive stream with social-media commentary and statistics that entice kids raised on video games and Snapchat, the people said. Amazon already does this with the G League, a minor-league version of the National Basketball Association. The TV audience for the NFL has declined for two years in a row, slumping almost 10 percent last season alone.

Best Tech Stocks For 2018: Yahoo! Inc.(YHOO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Yahoo! (YHOO) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after the internet company reported another data breach,calling into question its merger with Verizon Communications (VZ).

    Yahoo!’s Sunnyvale, California campus. Yahoo! Inc.

    Yahoo!dropped 6.1% to $38.41 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.4% to 2,262.03. Verizon Communications advanced 0.4% to $51.82.

    Evercore ISI’s Ken Sena and team contend the impact from the hacking is already priced in:

    As news further breaks that Verizon could be looking to scrap its proposed $4.83bn acquisition of Yahoo over the latest account hack (this time over 1bn accounts), we are adding that our own checks on the matter suggest that Verizon still sees a strong fit for Yahoo within their digital strategy and Yahoo indicated that Verizon had advanced knowledge of the circumstances pertaining to the recent hacking incident. Now, whether Verizon can find a way to absolve themselves from the liability of the hack, or simply receive a pricing concession, remains less clear. Nevertheless, Yahoos core business represents only 10% of our Yahoo target price of $39. Therefore, assuming a 20% lower value on the core, we are talking a 2% reduction in Yahoo shares. Further, with a 5% sell-off today, which in part reflects weakness in broader China equities, we see the hacking news as priced in. Moreover, as we weigh this news against the potential for a more favorable tax-rate assumption around Yahoos 15% stake in Alibaba (BABA), given some of the President-Elects stated tax reform objectives, we do not see reason to lower our target price on Yahoo! further…Our $39 target price is unchanged.

    Yahoo!’s market capitalization fell to $36.7 billion today from $39 billion yesterday. It reported a net loss of $4.4 billion on sales of $5 billion in 2015.

    When you think of tech companies which rejected buyout offers, quite a few not so great stories come to mind. Starting with Yahoo (NSDQ:YHOO), whichrejectedMicrosoft’s (NSDQ:MSFT)$44.6 billion offer, to Groupon (NSDQ:GRPN), which shunned Google’s $6 billion buyout offer, many similar decisions have proven to be bad ones in hindsight. Snapchat is one of those few exceptions that have lived to tell the tale. At least for now. However, Facebookseems rather determined to leave no stone unturned in its fight against Snapchat.

    As much as traditional telecommunications is a poky business, VZ is making some interesting moves. Most famously it recently acquired the core properties of Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO) to drive new revenue streams and position itself for the future. And a little further back, Verizon acquired AOL.
