    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. To see the latest bargain play, read up on this fund that no one is talking about. We’re talking a quick double-digit gain, no questions asked
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: KSS, JPM, TSLA
    Kohl’s Corp. (NYSE: KSS) leads a busy day of earnings reports on Tuesday. This morning, the retailer reported earnings of share of $1.76. That figure topped Wall Street estimates by $0.12. Shares pressed higher thanks to news of a 3.1% jump in same-store sales and a hike to the retailer’s full-year outlook. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) is on the verge of blowing up the retail stock trading business.

    Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT) has been marketing Mazor Robotics Ltd.’s (NASDAQ:MZOR) surgical-assist robots for about one year, and on Friday, it announced a definitive agreement to acquire the robot maker lock, stock, and barrel for $1.64 billion, or $58.50 per ADR. Here’s why Medtronic’s decision to buy Mazor Robotics to push more deeply into the spine surgery market is smart.

  • [By Brian Feroldi]

    Mazor Robotics (NASDAQ:MZOR) reported its first-quarter results on Monday, May 14. Last quarter, the robotic surgery company’s management warned investors that 2018 was going to be a “transition” year because of its decision to strike a significant commercial deal with medical device giant Medtronic (NYSE: MDT). Management said that the deal was a huge win for the company, but it was going to result in “modest revenue growth” in 2018.

    This company is based in Ireland after the gigantic combination with Covidien three years ago. Medtronic PLC (NYSE: MDT) is a medical devices giant, and many on Wall Street saw its historical merger with Covidien, probably one of the largest in the med tech industry, as a momentous event, leading to the creation of a unique company that combines the extensive and innovative abilities of both companies. The combined company officially has joint forces of over 85,000 employees in more than 160 countries.

Top 5 Stocks To Buy For 2019

One of Tuesday’s biggest winners is a blast from the past. China’s Renren (NYSE:RENN) saw its shares soar 57.7% on Tuesday, skyrocketing after posting financial results that aren’t as good as they might seem at first glance. 

Renren’s second quarter was certainly a head turner. Revenue soared 582% for the period. However, the business model has shifted dramatically over the past year. Used auto sales — a segment that it just entered during the springtime of last year — accounts for 91% of the $135 million in revenue and more than all of its top-line growth. Losses are growing. Investors might have been pleasantly surprised by the stellar revenue growth in a stock that the market had left for dead, but holding on to Tuesday’s gains and building on them won’t be easy.

Let’s take a closer look a why United Technologies is an attractive stock.

UTX EV to EBITDA (TTM) data by YCharts

The value pick in the multi-industrial sector

As you can see in the chart of EV to EBITDA above, United Technologies is the cheapest stock in its peer group, and it’s worth noting that Finland’s KONE and Ingersoll-Rand (NYSE:IR) are key competitors in elevators and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), respectively. Spirit AeroSystems also competes with UTC’s Aerospace Systems (UTAS). Perhaps the reason for United Technologies valuation discount is that the market isn’t attracted by analyst forecast for just 6.3% EPS growth for in 2018, not least because it comes after a year of flat EPS growth.

good investments: American Airlines Group, Inc.(AAL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    American Airlines (Nasdaq: AAL) is my top pick among the major carriers. Profitability took a big hit last year when wages were increased significantly and management has already acknowledged higher fuel prices with a cut to its earnings target for this year. Taking the wage hit last year should mean less pressure in 2018 and margins could surprise to the upside.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

General Motors (GM) just jumped after a short upbeat earnings call, and deservedly so, as it has lagged the market considerably since 2011. I’m going to take this opportunity to give CEO Barra some credit. A lot of exciting stuff is happening at General Motors, like 1) its operations are throwing off cash; 2) they are cutting loose underperforming parts; 3) there’s future optionality here; 4) it’s returning money to shareholders.

General Motors is selling a lot of cars right now and if you look at net cash provided by operating activities it runs at nearly $14 billion. Not bad for a company with a $60 billion market cap.
