Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

Stocks couldn’t shake off early losses and all three major indexes ended lower on Thursday.

Bloomberg News

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 210.79 points, or 1.17%, to 17830.76. The S&P 500 Index fell 19.34 points, or 0.92%, to 2075.81. The Nasdaq slid 57.85 points, or 1.19%, to 4805.29.

Blue chips were dragged down by Apple (AAPL): Just days after its disappointing earnings, billionaire Carl Icahn said he no longer has a stake in the stock.

From a data standpoint, First quarter gross domestic product grew 0.5%, below economists’ expectations, overshadowing an upbeat jobs report that saw unemployment fall to a four-decade low.

Stifel’s Lindsey Piegza writes that this could push out any interest rate hikes:

From a policy standpoint, should the U.S. economy post meaningful improvement between now and June, assuming the Fed’s concerns surrounding international “risks” are not reignited, policy makers appear well positioned to announce the second rate hike in less than two months’ time.  Of course, following this morning’s disappointing GDP report, it’s difficult to imagine a marked improvement in the economy over the next two months.  More likely, the combination of stagnant economic conditions, a still-restrained consumer, and ongoing concerns regarding risks of contagion from developments abroad – whether directly identified in the statement or not – will make it increasingly difficult for the Fed to raise rates once in the remaining nine months of 2016, if at all.
