The VanEck Vectors Steel ETF (NYSE: SLX) was one of the premier “Trump trades,” soaring last year as Donald Trump's protectionist campaign trail rhetoric sparked once moribund steel stocks.

Year-to-date, SLX is up 5.6 percent, but there are concerns Trump trades are waning. Regarding SLX, part of the issue is the expected delay in Trump's widely anticipated infrastructure initiative. On the campaign trail, Trump promised to spend $1 trillion to shore up America's roads, bridges and railways, but that plan has been pushed off to 2018.

    Utility stocks are generally considered conservative investments that reward shareholders over the long term with sizable dividends that grow slowly and steadily over time. With the S&P 500 Index’s yield hovering around 2%, the bar for yield is set pretty low today. That said, investors should think twice before jumping at utilities like UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI), Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE:ATO), and MGE Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGEE), which offer little if any yield advantage over an S&P 500 Index fund.

Top Medical Stocks To Own Right Now

Healthcare costs are a big drain on many people’s budgets, and any break you can find is worth pursuing. Many employers offer flexible spending accounts to their workers, and using an FSA can give you a big reduction in your taxes. However, if you want to make the most of your FSA, you need to keep up to date with the ever-changing rules that govern them. Below, you’ll find the basics on flexible spending accounts for healthcare expenses and what’s new this year.

Why FSAs are worth a closer look

A flexible spending account is essentially a short-term savings account that you can put part of your paychecks into throughout the year. You decide how much to put into the FSA up to a certain limit each year, and then you can either have payments for eligible medical expenses taken directly from the account, or reimburse yourself for money you’ve already paid for such expenses.

The biggest reason FSAs for healthcare are so valuable is that they give you one of the biggest tax breaks available. You contribute pre-tax money into the flexible spending account, saving yourself the income taxes that would otherwise get withheld from that amount on your paycheck. Even when you take the money out of the account to use it for medical purposes, you don’t have to pay any tax. In addition, you also avoid having to pay the payroll tax for Social Security and Medicare on the contributed amount, which saves another 7.65% for most workers. That extra benefit is extremely rare even for other popular tax breaks like IRA and 401(k) retirement contributions.

Best Bank Stocks For 2018

Money-market traders in the U.K. may have capitulated, but not the analysts.

While currency pundits were jolted by Governor Mark Carney’s surprise hint that an interest-rate increase by the Bank of England next month isn’t a foregone conclusion, they aren’t exactly doing an about-turn on their forecasts. ING Groep NV, Nomura International Plc, Credit Agricole SA, CBA Europe Ltd., MUFG and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce all say they are keeping their call for a hike in May intact.

Gilts slid on Monday after rallying Friday on the repricing as money-market investors pared expectations for a rate move to around 50 percent following Carney’s remarks, from more than 80 percent earlier. Sterling is still among the top performers in Group-of-10 currencies this year, largely led by conviction that the central bank will need to raise rates to quell inflation that breached 3 percent in November.
