    So far, 2018 isn’t turning out like shareholders of Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) and Emerald Health Therapeutics (NASDAQOTH:EMHTF) hoped. Aphria stock is down 45% year to date, while Emerald Health is down 16%. Several issues, including dilution caused by offering new shares and a delay in thelegalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, havetaken a toll on both stocks.

    Along with its major peers Canopy Growth (OTCPK:TWMJF) and Aphria (OTCQB:APHQF), it’s been underperforming so far in 2018, although that is probably going to change as legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada approaches. Whether or not that holds in the short term will be determined by supply and demand factors.

Hot High Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: Vera Bradley Inc.(VRA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

A few days ago, an article about Nike (NYSE:NKE) argued that “Nike’s shares aren’t priced to buy.” The reasoning was that “Nike is, at best, fairly valued. And it certainly isn’t trading hands at fire-sale prices.” The question is: should you expect (and wait for) fire-sales prices? Most value investors know the maxim that it is better to buy a great business at a fair price than to buy a mediocre business at low price. We think that Nike is a great business at a fair price. We have been waiting for Nike’s price to come down for a long time and meanwhile, we have sold PUT options, though unfortunately these options have never been exercised (but we cashed-in premiums). Today, we bought the stock.

Reasons to avoid the stock

We invest with a long-term view and therefore we ask long-term questions:

Has the management of Nike changed its strategy? Is Nike’s long-term strategy ultimately going to fail? Is there anything that can or has damaged the Nike brand?

Of course, competition is there, but is there any industry where there is no long-term competition? Under Armour (NYSE:UAA), Adidas (OTCQX:ADDDF), Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU) are all good companies, but they have always been there. Under Armour and Lululemon are perceived as new entrants, but they were actually founded 20 years ago (in 1996 and 1998), Adidas is almost a century old, while Nike is “only” 52-years old. So, what has changed? These industries move in waves, but the quality of the Nike brand, its management, and innovation have been a constant. In sum, if your answer to any of the previous questions is YES, then you should reconsider our investment thesis. If it is NO, then we can move on to the next paragraph.

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019

The Dow Jones took its eighth consecutive licking yesterday its worst streak since last March.

Down too was the S&P and the Nasdaq.

VIX, Wall Streets fear gauge, was in panicked spasm.

For the explanation, we turn to CNBC:

Dow drops about 200 points on trade worries, extends losing streak to eight days.

It is the trade wars again.

Trade-sensitive stocks such as Boeing and Caterpillar took the heaviest rattling yesterday.

“The focus has been back on tariffs,” confirms Michael Hans, CIO of Clarfeld Financial Advisors.

Meantime, Goldman Sachs thinks “further escalation seems likely.”

But in the face of trade upheaval, where can the smart investor find refuge?

Gold, perhaps or maybe Treasuries?

Or something else altogether?

We put our agents on the case:

Go find us an investment that will advantage our readers while trade war hammers the markets!

Dutifully, they soon reported a beacon of light an investment class that has soared as trade war fears shake the overall market.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    After facing several challenges over the past few years, Energy Transfer Partners(NYSE:ETP) has turned things around, which was evident in its first-quarter results.

While the company still has some work to do before all its issues are in the rearview mirror, it’s certainly heading in the right direction.

    Because Magellan Midstream Partners has lived within its means over the past five years, the average number of units it has outstanding is up less than 1%. Contrast that with rivals Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), which have a much more aggressive approach to financing growth because they typically pay out virtually all their cash flow to investors each quarter. That forced both to issue a boatload of new equity and debt to fund acquisitions and expansion projects. As a result, Buckeye’s outstanding unit count has surged 41%, while Energy Transfer’s is up a jaw-dropping 120% over the past five years.

    While ONEOK is one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in the country, one thing others have that it lacks is an export terminal. An analyst on the call pointed this out and asked how aggressively the company was pursuing exports given that rivals Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) recently signed joint ventures (JVs) to build new export terminals. In Enterprise’s case, it signed a JV to construct an ethylene export facility to move the key petrochemical to market centers. Meanwhile, Energy Transfer secured a JV to build an ethane export facility. Both projects should start up in 2020 and supply thesecompanies with steady cash flow for years via long-term, fee-based contracts.
