Top Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now

The stock market kept performing well on Monday, and the Dow Jones Industrials posted its 12th straight all-time record high. Market sentiment was sunny following the release of Warren Buffett’s annual shareholder letter over the weekend, and the Oracle of Omaha made positive comments about the sustainability of the current bull market, which was able to overcome early declines in the major market benchmarks. However, some stocks didn’t fare as well as the overall market, and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), AmTrust Financial Services (NASDAQ:AFSI), and Horizon Pharma (NASDAQ:HZNP) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.  

Tesla gets a poor review

Shares of Tesla fell 4% after the electric car manufacturer received a downgrade from analysts at Goldman Sachs. The Wall Street giant cut its rating on Tesla from neutral to sell, citing concerns about the company’s ability to launch its Model 3 mass-market sedan, execute on the strategy behind its acquisition of solar specialist SolarCity, and deal with the need to tap the capital markets to raise cash. Yet even the bearish analysts admit that Tesla has a competitive advantage over rival automakers with respect to the technology and architecture of its electric vehicles, and Tesla’s efforts to boost battery production appear to be working. Nevertheless, the question facing investors is whether Tesla can execute well on the huge opportunity it has in front of it, and at least in Goldman’s eyes, that could prove more difficult than initially thought.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    On Thursday, the European Central Bank held its meeting in Latvia to discuss the future of its quantitative easing program. The central bank of the world’s largest economic bloc said that it will likely end its quantitative easing program in December. This represents an extension beyond the current plan to end the stimulus program in September. ECB President Mario Draghi said the program would be reduced to 15 billion euros each month during the final three months of the year. Yesterday, the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates for the second time in 2018. The central bank said that economic growth has been rising at a solid rate and hinted that it could raise rates two more times this year. Fed Chair Jerome Powell did raise an alarm on Wednesday after stating that companies are holding back on investment due to ongoing concerns about U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade policies. Trump is expected to decide this week on whether to proceed with tariffs on about $50 billion in Chinese goods. Trade tensions are heating up again. This morning, China announced it would call off its deal to avoid a trade war if the Trump administration proceeds with tariffs on Friday morning. Tomorrow, the Trump team will decide if it will hit China with tariffs on roughly $50 billion in goods.

Best Undervalued Stocks For 2018

Welcome to The Salary Chronicles, where we’re bringing transparency to negotiation and salaries, one story at a time. We ask women to share their experiences negotiating their salary and what their advice is for others doing the same. We share these stories anonymously so they feel comfortable speaking as openly and as freely as possible.

This week we’re speaking with a woman who was in a career rut and felt undervalued. Instead of staying stuck, she worked on improving her whole self, and as a result was offered a job that exceeded the ambitious income goal she had set for herself. 

Title: Management Consultant

Location: Denver, CO

Original Salary: $45k

Negotiated Salary: $80k

What was the situation?

I had been working as a consultant for 4 years and by the end I hated it. The hours were long, I wasn’t making a lot of money, and I didn’t want to move up any further with my company. On the outside, it looked like I had a great career, but deep down I knew it wasn’t a fit.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now

After examining Walt Disney’s (DIS) earnings, which were released after yesterday’s market close, Stifel’s Benjamin Mogil and Kevin Lee Hon Siong argued that they “continue to view Disney as a Tale of Two Stories.” They explain why:

Getty Images

Disney reported 4Q16 results which were in-line with our estimates but below those of consensus expectations. Commentary for 2017 was likely below expectations but at the same set the stage for more realistic expectations and we view that clarity/transparency as one of the bigger factors behind the after-market hours stock reversal.

Continue To View Disney As A Tale Of Two Stories: Since the beginning of the year we noted that the company is somewhat of a split story. We continue to be of the view that the consumer-facing segments of the business: theme parks, studio and consumer products, continue to execute well/have a favorable outlook. Noted on this call was a strong start to Shanghai Disney, with the park expected to be around break even by the end of the year, much quicker than other international parks. While Studio will see a down year given the difficult “Star Wars” comp, the Studio continues to have a strong content cycle from not only Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar but increasingly from Disney Animation and Disney live action with the setup into 2018 very favorable. Similarly, the commentary on consumer products growth y/y was better than expected and shows greater depth into its product/licensing offering.

    On November 5, Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)confirmed that it has finally completed the acquisition of Netsuite (NYSE:N) for $9.3 billion in cash, or $109 per share that the company had initially offered. In my previous article about Oracle, I had suggested that the acquisition of NetSuite, the cloud business application software company, is a smart move by Oracle. What’s more, it is not paying an excessive price for the deal. In fact, Oracle insisted that it will not pay more than what it had first offered despite the resistance from T Rowe Price (NSDQ:TROW)which demanded $133 per share.

    2. Low Debt Levels
    By looking through his previous success stories like Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), American Express (NYSE: AXP), and Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), it is clear that Buffett carefully examines a company’s balance sheet, and prefers to invest in those with relatively modest debt burdens.

    Well-known stocks in that group include JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE: WFC) and Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC).

    Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) did an exceptionally good job of making it through the financial crisis in 2008 with minimal damage, weathering the turbulence in its stock price and rising to all-time record highs in the early and mid-2010s. Along the way, Wells Fargo also sought to regain its standing as a strong dividend stock, and it has successfully restored its quarterly payout to levels above what it had paid prior to the crisis. Yet recently, the bank has run into controversy with a scandal involving employees opening fake accounts, and Wells Fargo’s most recent earnings weren’t as strong as the company has seen in the past. Some investors are wondering whether the bank’s track record of dividend increases since the financial crisis could be in jeopardy. Let’s look more closely to whether Wells Fargo will raise its dividend in 2017.

    The US financial sector has been on a solid run of late. Over the last 12 months the S&P 500 Financials Sector has returned 18.9% relative to the S&P 500 Index of 17.9%. Many analysts have formed the view that with the potential for higher market interest rates, this sector has a long runway ahead. So with this in mind I thought that it would be a good time to update my estimates of the intrinsic value of the 3 major diversified banks. Over a series of 4 articles I will value JPMorgan (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) and Bank of America (NYSE: BAC). In this first article I will set the scene by reviewing the performance of the 3 banks over the last 10 years and compare their current performance to the Sector.
