    Friday was a good day on Wall Street, especially for the large companies that make up the broadest major benchmarks. Market participants didn’t let a slightly weak July employment report rain on their parade, instead insisting that the long-term course of the U.S. economy still looks overwhelmingly positive. Nevertheless, that general sentiment wasn’t enough to prevent some stocks from posting considerable losses. Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK), Tesaro (NASDAQ:TSRO), and Square (NYSE:SQ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: CareTrust REIT, Inc.(CTRE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Shares of CareTrust REIT, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTRE) rose an impressive 19% in the month of January, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. That’s a huge gain in a very short period of time for a real estate investment trust, an asset class focused on passing income to investors. But it wasn’t the only healthcare-focused REIT to see some upside at the start of 2019.

  • [By Jim Royal]

    Real estate investment trusts (REITs) usually have a reputation as being stodgy slow-growth companies, and there’s some truth to that. But when I analyze a REIT, I’m looking for a higher-growth dynamo that can compound for years, and I think investors still have a great opportunity with CareTrust REIT (NASDAQ:CTRE).

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: CareTrust REIT, Inc.(CTRE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jason Hall]

    This is especially true if you follow some simple rules: Only invest money in stocks if you can hold them for the long term. Don’t expose yourself too heavily to any single stock for income you have to have. Invest in high-quality companies with a substantial margin of safety in their ability to pay the dividend. Three that check all three boxes areTerraForm Power Inc.(NASDAQ:TERP),CareTrust REIT Inc.(NASDAQ:CTRE), andStarbucks Corporation(NASDAQ:SBUX).

  • [By Jason Hall, Chuck Saletta, and Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    But that doesn’t mean you need to make risky bets to capture solid returns, either, and buying solid companies at reasonable prices can help create a margin of safety and improve your returns, while also decreasing your risk of permanent losses. Three stocks that meet these criteria are small healthcare real-estate specialistCaretrust REIT Inc(NASDAQ:CTRE), financial services giantPrudential Financial Inc(NYSE:PRU), and energy behemothExxonMobil Corporation(NYSE:XOM).

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Genfit SA (GNFTF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    In a recent article, we discussed what makes Genfits (OTCPK:GNFTF) Elafibranor one of the most promising candidates in the NASH treatment development space. Given the unmet need (no approved therapies), Elafibranors mechanism of action and the potential it has shown in clinical stages, we see a strong chance of approval if the pivotal Phase 3 study succeeds. In this article, we will briefly discuss the chances of Elafibranors success in clinical stages and Genfits valuation based on the potential of its lead product candidate. We will briefly also discuss the risks to the investment thesis.

  • [By ]

    Heres what we wrote: With GR-MD-02, Galectin is also targeting a different spectrum of NASH. The companys programs with GR-MD-02 are focusing on NASH treatment in individuals with advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis. As we mentioned before, Genfit (OTCPK:GNFTF) and Intercept (ICPT) are targeting what can be termed as the sweet spot of the NASH spectrum. Galecctin is one of the few companies targeting advanced stage of the disease. This makes it both an interesting and at the same time risky bet in the NASH space.

  • [By ]

    This phase 2 data for Madrigal was phenomenal, which is why I think it will do well in a phase 3 trial. The other side of the trade is that Intercept Pharmaceuticals (ICPT) and Genfit (OTCPK:GNFTF) are further along with phase 3 trials, which are expected to read out NASH results by 2019/2020. Intercept has a good drug with Ocaliva, however, it suffers from toxicity issues when Doctors prescribe higher than necessary dosing. On the flip side, Ocaliva has shown a greater difference in fibrosis reduction for NASH in its phase 2 FLINT trial compared to MGL-3196. What do I mean by that? Well, as you can see above MGL-3196 obtained a fibrosis reduction in NASH patients of 29% compared to 23% for those on placebo creating a difference of only 6%. If you look at Ocaliva from the FLINT trial, from Intercept Pharmaceuticals, it had a fibrosis reduction of 35% compared to 19% of those NASH patients on placebo. It is just something to keep in mind. I still believe that MGL-3196 will eventually be approved. The question that should be asked is how well will it do compared to other competitors in the same space with better fibrosis reductions? That will be key, because NASH causes fibrosis (scarring) of the liver. Fibrosis eventually turns into cirrhosis of the liver, which can eventually lead to liver failure. That’s why, in my opinion, a drug that will have the most impact on NASH will be one that shows a major reduction in fibrosis. The good news is that the NASH market is expected to reach between $20 to $30 billion in the coming years. It is a large market for plenty of players in this space. The other endpoints are important as well, but in a competitive market such as NASH, fibrosis reduction will make the difference in terms of more sales. This is just an important factor to keep in mind.

    Strayer Education (NASDAQ:STRA) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Strayer Education’s first-quarter 2018 earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate and increased 29.5% year over year. Moreover, revenues improved 1.4% from the prior-year quarter’s figure, owing to higher winter term enrollment. Positive enrollment trend continued in the first quarter with new students and total enrollment up 6% each. Strayer’s convenient, accessible and flexible educational programs are designed to meet the educational needs of working adults. Strayer University is lowering the cost of its programs to enhance affordability. However, tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students toward lower undergraduate tuition have resulted in declining revenue per student over the past few quarters. Revenue per student declined approximately 5% in the first quarter of 2018. Importantly, Strayer and Capella decided to merge in an all-stock deal of equal transactions, expected to close in the third quarter of 2018.”

Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

Gold doesn't trade in a vacuum.   Markets are connected. What happens in one often affects others.   So if you want to understand what's happening with gold, you need to know what's going on in the markets that affect gold.   And while lots of traders focus only on the short term, it's important to have a big-picture view, too. The big picture shows you the long-term trends at work… and when they change. It can help you find low-risk opportunities to open new positions. And it can help you determine where to set your stops.   Today, we'll look at the big picture for two markets that affect gold… along with gold itself.   Let's get started…   The first market we'll look at is U.S. government bonds… specifically, the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasurys. The U.S. government is considered the world's safest borrower. (It can print money to pay lenders back, after all.) The rate it pays to borrow money for 10 years serves as the world's benchmark interest rate.

12 Cool, Affordable Gifts for Financial Advisors

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.

In late October, rumors swirled that lawmakers debating tax reform were mulling a cap on 401(k) contributions at $2,400 per year. In a tweet, President Donald Trump quickly promised “NO change” to the accounts.
