J.P. Morgan is telling its clients the strange uncorrelated relative performances between the U.S. and international stocks will not last.

As a result, the firm predicts international stocks will outperform the domestic market the rest of the year.

“The recent divergence in the performance of US Equities vs. the rest of the world is unprecedented in history. For instance, if one looks at price momentum – it is positive for US stocks and negative for Europe and Emerging markets across all relevant lookback windows [one month, three months, six months and 12 months]. This has never happened before,” quantitative and derivative strategist Marko Kolanovic said in a note clients Tuesday.

The U.S. stock market has soundly outperformed emerging market stocks this year. The S&P 500 is up 7 percent year to date through Tuesday versus the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF’s (EEM) 9 percent decline in the same time period.

Best Stocks To Buy Right Now: Vera Bradley Inc.(VRA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Tandy Leather Factory (NASDAQ: TLF) and Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) are both small-cap retail/wholesale companies, but which is the superior business? We will compare the two businesses based on the strength of their institutional ownership, analyst recommendations, dividends, profitability, valuation, risk and earnings.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Shares of women’s accessory maker Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) jumped again in September on second-quarter 2018 profits that exceeded management’s guidance. The stock is now up 39% year to date. While profits are ultimately all that matters, Vera Bradley has been increasing its bottom line while actual sales continue to decline. That makes the fashion company a high-risk investment as long as that trend remains intact.

    Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) reached a new 52-week high and low during mid-day trading on Tuesday . The stock traded as low as $13.30 and last traded at $13.16, with a volume of 54803 shares traded. The stock had previously closed at $12.72.

    Wednesday was a mixed day on Wall Street, with most major benchmarks easing lower as market participants continued to seek clarity on the trade front. Until negotiations with key partners like Canada and China come to a conclusion, some investors remain nervous about the possible ramifications of a failure to get deals completed. Yet in the absence of any outright negative news, trade-related or otherwise, the market has resisted substantial declines, rebounding from temporary setbacks. Positive sentiment around some key individual stocks has helped to buoy enthusiasm generally. Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), MannKind (NASDAQ:MNKD), and Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    The markets are upbeat about the latest reports surrounding trade between the United States and China. Despite news that roughly $16 billion in fresh tariffs are going into effect this week on Chinese goods, markets are hoping that momentum begins to build ahead of discussions between leaders of world’s two largest economies. With that said, President Trump downplayed upcoming discussions in an interview with Reuters on Monday. Back on June 21, I wrote about a fast-moving, high-profit stock – Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: DDE). And that recommendation has brought in gains of roughly 103% since then. But we’re not done with the top gambling stocks. Today, I’m back with an entirely different way to make fast gains in this space.

We could be in for a bumpy ride.

Like mosttravelers, I always hate hearing those words when I’m on an airplane. Thankfully, I’m not sitting on a jet about to hit turbulence right now. But I am invested heavily in the stock market. And not only might we be in for a bumpy ride ahead, it’s already been turbulent so far in 2018.

However, I think the response passengerstake on an airplane that’s about to encounter a rough patch is the right approach for investors: Fasten your seat belts, sit back, and wait. That’s exactly what I plan to do, especially with three of my favorite growth stocks — Align Technology (NASDAQ:ALGN), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL), and NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA). Here’s why I’m holding onto these stocks no matter how bumpy the market gets.

Align Technology

Align Technology ranked as the top-performing stock in the S&P 500 in 2017. And Align didn’t join the S&P 500 untilnearly halfway through the year. However, Align stock hasn’t been immune to overall market gyrations so far in 2018. The orthodontic-device maker especially took a hit after a Wall Street analyst predicted that its growth would slow.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil.

We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018: Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (VGK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    Here is a dichotomy. Global small-caps are performing admirably. The WisdomTree Europe SmallCap Dividend Fund (NYSE: DFE) is an example of a Europe ETF that is defying some unfavorable trends. DFE is down 3.5 percent year-to-date. That sounds bad, but it is far better than what investors have been treated to with diversified, large-cap Europe ETFs. The Vanguard Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK) and the iShares Europe ETF (NYSE: IEV) are down an average of 5.3 percent this year.

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    Still, there are instances of limited appetite for diversified Europe ETFs, particularly those with significant U.K. exposure. The Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK) hasn't added (or lost) any capital since June 20. That ETF devotes 31.4 percent of its weight to U.K. stocks.

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    Perhaps the largest ETF dedicated to tracking French stocks should be getting more attention. In a year in which ETFs tracking the PIIGS economies are struggling, EWQ has been solid. The France ETF's 2.7 percent year-to-date gain is slightly ahead of the comparable Germany ETF and more than twice as good as the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK).

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news. The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.

Top 5 Stocks To Invest In Right Now

When President Donald Trump met with top airline executives Thursday, he mentioned one of his most trusted sources of information about the nation’s aviation system — his personal pilot.

“I have a pilot who’s a real expert,” he told them. “He said, ‘Sir, the equipment they’re putting on is just the wrong stuff.’ If we’re going to modernize our system we should be using the right equipment.”

“My pilot, he’s a smart guy, and he knows what’s going on,” Trump added.

Trump did not specify whom he was referring to. But it has been widely reported that John Dunkin has served as the pilot of Trump’s private Boeing 757 jet.

Dunkin has served as Trump’s personal pilot since 1989, according to a Smithsonian Channel documentary about private planes.

Top 5 Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Coach, Inc.(COH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    …formal language on deal prospects articulates process is proceeding in a timely manner with no definitive timetable and no assurance that process will result in a transaction. We still expect a deal to happen, but do lower our probability from 80% to 70% given the likelihood that potential buyer(s) and KATE have not agreed on a clearing price in earlier rounds of negotiation. We believe a bidder such as Coach (COH) does not want to overpay, is disciplined about managing ROIC, and returns and synergies split may be more rational at an offer price in the range of $22-25. We continue to believe KATE has a long global growth runway ahead with opportunities for store growth abroad, further expansion into non-handbag categories, and supply + digital synergy potential…We rate KATE Market Perform and lower our price target to $21 (was $27). Our updated valuation is based on ~10x our FY18E adj. EBITDA or $284mm.
