Top High Tech Stocks For 2019: PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon US Trs ETF (ZROZ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    My preferred fund here is Vanguard Extended Duration Treasury ETF (NYSE: EDV), which owns a basket of long-term, zero-coupon bonds. It’s better-known, larger, and, most important, cheaper than its competitor PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon U.S. Treasury Index Exchange-Traded Fund (NYSE: ZROZ). Both are poised to rally if deflation hits and the stock market falls. But EDV is cheaper, at only 0.07% expense ratio, compared with ZROZ’s 0.15%, and so it’s the one that makes the cut.

    Friday was mixed on Wall Street, with the Nasdaq Composite eking out minor gains even as most other major benchmarks finished down modestly. Market participants seemed largely content to see how things played out on the geopolitical front between the U.S. and North Korea, and key reversals in other financial markets helped send 10-year Treasury rates back below 3% and also resulted in a substantial drop in crude oil prices. Despite generally quiet conditions, bad news sent shares of certain companies lower.

    The Cooper Companies (NYSE:COO) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Cooper Companies has recently acquired the assets of The LifeGlobal Group and its affiliates, bolstering its foothold in the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) devices market. Meanwhile, the CooperVision business has been delivering impressive results. A raised guidance for fiscal 2018 looks promising. Notably, Cooper Companies completed the acquisition of Paragon Vision Sciences. This added a leading ortho-k technology to the company’s lens portfolio. Considering the outstanding performance of the stock, we expect Cooper Companies to scale higher in the coming quarters. On the flipside, intense competition in the contact lens space will continue to build pricing pressure. Additionally, escalating debt levels and foreign exchange vulnerability are likely to mar the company’s bottom line. Also, the slashed revenue guidance for fiscal 2018 in CSI segment is discouraging. Cooper has underperformed its industry in a year’s time.”

While the House and Senate tax bills were taking shape, lawmakers floated some changes to 401(k) contributions. A survey taken around that time shows just how perilous those changes could have been.

Three-quarters of nonretired investors in a new Wells Fargo/Gallup poll had a 401(k) plan, and a third cited tax deferral on the money they contribute as their plan’s most valued feature.

And what if their plan’s tax-deferred status were eliminated? Forty-six percent of respondents said they would save less or just stop saving, and 42% would save about the same amount.

The telephone survey was conducted in early November with 1,015 U.S. adult investors, 67% of whom were nonretired and 33% of whom were retired.
