Top 5 Stocks To Buy Right Now

In view of the changing media landscape, Disney (NYSE:DIS) is an example of both a company beholden to its past, while also striving for the future. The multimedia powerhouse found itself in danger of becoming less relevant as declining subscriber rates and cord-cutting ate into Disney’s most profitable business: its media networks, including sports network ESPN. At least part of the blame can be attributed to the advent of streaming, as services like Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) offered an all-you-can-watch alternative at a much lower price point, causing viewers to dump cable packages.

Disney belatedly entered the streaming market, releasing an offering for sports fans: ESPN+. While this initial over-the-top service is a companion to its flagship sports network, it also acted as an important test of the company’s ability to attract subscribers in an increasingly crowded streaming market.

Its early results seem to bode well for Disney’s debut effort.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    ValuEngine cut shares of Energy Transfer Equity LP Unit (NYSE:ETE) from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research report report published on Thursday.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On Energy Transfer Equity’s(NYSE:ETE) first-quarter conference call, the company’s management team provided investors with a unique glimpse of what’s going on behind the scenes. One of the things they’re working on is the acquisition of namesake MLP Energy Transfer Partners. CEO Kelcy Warren said on the call that the companies have “looked at every scenario possible to us” and that the only one that makes mathematical sense is for Energy Transfer Equity to buy its MLP. That transaction would not only simplify the company’s corporate structure but could enable Energy Transfer to resume growing its 7.1% yielding distribution.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.

Top 5 China Stocks To Invest In 2018

Famed investor and “Gloom, Boom & Doom Report” author Marc Faber is calling for a recession.

“I would put up interest rates,” Faber said during a conference hosted by CMC Market in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday night. The U.S. Federal Reserve holds its next two-day meeting Nov. 1-2 — just six days ahead of the 2016 presidential election that has investors on edge. After the last Fed meeting, the central bank hinted it will raise rates before the end of the year.

“It’s not politically correct to say it,” Faber added, “but for the social system of the Western world and for capitalism, a serious recession would be desirable, because the financial sector as a percentage of the economy is still too big,” reported Financial Review Thursday.

Faber is no stranger to headline-grabbing predictions – usually ones that involve impending stock market crashes caused by China’s volatile economy and/or failed economic policies. For instance, on Sept. 21, Faber criticized the Fed’s former “quantitative easing” efforts on CNBC. He said that he thinks of central bankers as alchemists attempting to concoct gold out of nothing and that QE will surely be tried again in the near future because of a lack of inflation.
