In late March the current administration approved and signed a bill that increases U.S. defense spending by $80 billion to a record $700 billion, which makes for an intriguing investment opportunity into equities like Lockheed Martin&a;rsquo;s (LMT-US) and recently recommended Boeing (BA-US). CressCap currently lists BA and LMT as some of the top U.S. equities. The foundation of our recommendations is to identify companies that perform best and worst on the collective basis of value, growth, EPS revisions, profitability, and LT momentum. The CressCap systematic trading model gathers data daily on 6,500 companies globally and assigns academic grades (A – F) for each financial metric. These grades are scored relative to its region/sector. Lockheed and Boeing&a;rsquo;s standing as one of the leading aerospace and defense producers internationally is reflective of LMT and BA&a;rsquo;s impressive financials and future deals with governments around the world.

    He sold about $260 million worth of Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC). Don’t make the mistake of reading into that too much. Buffett did not sell Wells Fargo because he has any issue with a business. This is another issue where he wants to maintain a stake under 10% to be regulatory compliant. Berkshire owns about 9.3% of Wells Fargo right now. Buffett also owns some shares in his personal portfolio. To remain under the 10% threshold as Wells Fargo buys back some of its own stock, Buffett needs to sell some of Berkshire’s shares to keep his stake proportionally low. This is a very small amount. Even though it says it’s $260 million, it’s less than 1% of Berkshire’s Wells Fargo holdings.

    Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) was hit by another scandal. According to The Wall Street Journal:

    Some employees in a Wells Fargo & Co. unit that handles business banking improperly altered information on documents related to corporate customers, according to people familiar with the matter.

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    To illustrate some of these points, as well as some other reasons Buffett and the rest of Berkshire’s team may be inclined to sell stocks, here are a few examples from the company’s history:

    IBM (NYSE:IBM): Berkshire had been gradually unloading its IBM stake for some time, and Buffett confirmed that the last of the shares were sold during the first quarter of 2018. In a nutshell, Buffett says he misjudged IBM’s competitive challenges, and as a result, it has revalued the stock lower. This is a prime example of the concept of “when your original thesis no longer applies, get out.” Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC): Berkshire has sold some of its Wells Fargo stock in recent quarters, and you might assume it has something to do with the bank’s infamous “fake accounts” scandal. But you’d be wrong. Buffett has said several times that he intends to stick with Wells Fargo, but regulatory rules prevent him from owning more than 10% of the bank’s shares. The recent sales were solely to remain under that threshold. Freddie Mac (NASDAQOTH:FMCC): Many newer Berkshire investors are surprised to hear that Buffett was ever a fan of mortgage giant Freddie Mac, but Berkshire owned 9% of the company’s shares in the late 1990s. Berkshire made lots of money on the investment, but Buffett started to see troubling signs — specifically, the company was taking on far too much risk to keep its earnings growing at a double-digit rate. Buffett ended up selling all of Berkshire’s Freddie Mac shares by 2000, and we all know what happened during the mortgage meltdown — there’s a reason Freddie Mac is a penny stock today. ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM): Until late 2014, Berkshire was one of ExxonMobil’s largest shareholders. However, Buffett realized that oil prices weren’t likely to stay as high as he originally thought, so Berkshire’s entire stake was abruptly sold. Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS): Warren Buffett’s preferred uses for Berkshire Hathaway’s capital are to acquire entire businesses and buy common

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

I came across NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) in early 2013, when it was starting to become a major player in the Chinese mobile game industry. At first, I was a bit skeptical about their future growth and valuation. Video game companies are sometimes “one-hit wonders”, and decline after their top sellers lose popularity. But NetEase is an exception. After watching it for a few months, I decided then to bite the bullet and buy the stock. And I’m glad I did.

The company has produced leading online games in China since 2001, has a diversified business model over many in-house developed and licensed titles, and currently holds over $4.6 billion in cash, which can be used for buybacks, dividends and acquisitions.

I believe that NTES is still significantly undervalued and there are several upcoming catalysts which will unlock this value. The company is a dominant player in the Chinese gaming market, with significant competitive advantages and high barriers to entry.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey

Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.

Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners(NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics(NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.

Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend

Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.

El-Erian: 10 Things to Know About Stock Selloff

Increasing debt is the not only a problem for the federal government; it’s also a growing burden for U.S. consumers.

According to the New York Fed’s latest Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit, household debt rose in 2017 for the fifth consecutive year. In the fourth quarter of 2017, household debt grew 1.5% from the third quarter to $13.15 trillion. That’s equivalent to 68% of U.S. GDP.

Debt increased in all major categories: in mortgages (1.6%), student loans (up 1.5%), auto loans (up 0.7%) and credit cards (up 3.2%), but fell 0.9% for home equity loans.

Although credit card debt led the fourth-quarter debt increase, consumers owe far less in credit card debt than in all other major categories, just $834 billion, compared with $8.88 trillion for mortgages, $1.38 trillion for student loans and $1.22 trillion for auto loans.

    Here’s what you need to know.

    The Top Cryptocurrency Stories for May 14, 2018
    China will soon release an official report on about 30 decentralized currencies. “This independent analysis of cryptocurrencies and global public blockchain technology demonstrates the confidence of the Chinese government in the technology, and will act as a guide,” regulators said. Markets are also keeping an eye on Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB). Last week, Cheddar reported that the social media giant is considering the creation of its own cryptocurrency. The development is surprising, given that the company had banned advertising related to cryptocurrencies earlier this year. The Facebook cryptocurrency would be used to facilitate payments on its platform. It’s worth noting that the head of the group that is exploring the Facebook coin is a board member of the cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase. Will cryptocurrencies be part of a future bailout or economic stimulus effort by the U.S. Federal Reserve? That was suggested in new report by research analysts at Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS). The Wall Street investment bank suggests that state-sponsored cryptocurrencies could allow central banks to press interest rates into negative territory. “Freely circulating paper notes and coins (cash) limits the ability of the central banks to force negative deposit rates,” the report reads. “A digital version of cash could theoretically allow negative deposit rates to be charged on all money in circulation within any economy.” Finally, markets are reacting positively to the announcement that ING Bank and HSBC Holdings Plc. (NYSE: HSBC) engaged in their first trade ever using blockchain technology. The two engaged in a trade on behalf of Cargill to finance a shipment of soybeans from Argentina to Malaysia.

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) has seized assets from the Venezuelan-owned firm PDVSA in the Caribbean. The company won a court case that will allow it to take over assets owned by the Venezuelan government.

Top 10 China Stocks To Watch Right Now

Don’t panic, capitalists! Communists will save you. (Photographer: Qilai Shen/Bloomberg)

It is with a certain comic irony that the annual global getaway of the world’s movers and shakers has chosen Xi Jinping as the herald of global capitalism. “Help me, Xi Jinping, you’re my only hope.”

On Tuesday, the leader of the — reminder — Communist Party of China will address the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. It is the first time a Chinese president ever attended the forum. The forum leaders have seemingly made him the poster boy for globalization, based on the number of headlines regarding his historic attendance.

Globalization has treated China well. Gone are the days of the Happy Meal toy making, dollar-a-day economy. China, if you look mainly at Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou, is rich! They’re keeping London and New York real estate afloat. And the country is home to more new billionaires than anywhere else.

    In the casual dining segment, Texas Roadhouse (NASDAQ:TXRH) has been a standout for years. Same-store sales contraction hasn’t been an issue there, even as the company has expanded its footprint. While Roadhouse isn’t a direct competitor to quick service brands, it operates primarily in suburbia — a market Subway is strong in as well, tucked away next to grocery stores and in small shopping centers in neighborhoods across the country. If those underserved areas end up with even fewer options to grab a meal on the go, the steakhouse’s growing to-go order initiative could get a bump.

Hot Financial Stocks For 2018

John Cryan didn’t have much in the way of good news today as Deutsche Bank AG reported a fall in revenue and an increase in expenses in the fourth quarter. But the Frankfurt-based lender’s chief executive officer did say one key piece of his restructuring project is hitting some milestones: the unprecedented overhaul of its information technology systems.

“We’re well on our way to transforming the company into one driven by technology, and here, we’ve made reasonable progress,” Cryan said in a call with analysts this morning.

In October 2015, Cryan vowed to untangle the spaghetti ball of its operating systems and scores of applications and platforms that had built up over the years. Deutsche Bank stockholders have zeroed in on the push because convoluted technology practices have made it harder for the bank to measure risk and to reduce costs.

This morning, Cryan said the bank had shut many of its 33 core operating systems, but still had a lot of work to do to reach the target of four. Cryan added that the bank’s IT reorganization effort, led by Chief Operating Officer Kim Hammonds, had also shut down the number of "intersystem reconciliation" programs, which help process financial transactions, by 40 percent. There again, he said, the bank needed to make further reductions to achieve its target of 300 systems by 2020.

Best Casino Stocks For 2019

Steve Wynn agreed to give up control over his ex-wife’s shares of Wynn Resorts Ltd., potentially ending their six-year legal battle days after he resigned from the casino company following accusations of sexual harassment.

If a judge approves, Steve Wynn’s voting power will shrink to 11.8 percent of the shares, with Elaine Wynn able to determine what to do with her 9.4 percent stake. That may leave Wynn Resorts more vulnerable to activists or potential acquirers.

The company said in a filing Friday that Steve Wynn has no immediate plans to sell his shares and would only do so in an orderly fashion in any case. At one point Wynn, 76, had corralled more than a third of the voting rights at the company, making an unfriendly takeover virtually impossible.

Elaine Wynn previously said she wanted the ability to sell her shares so she could focus on philanthropy. Her spokeswoman declined to comment Friday.

As I picked through 2017&s;s ETF winners and losers one last time, some very interesting situations popped out at me. &a;nbsp;I actively track about 100 ETFs that represent different investment categories, themes, asset classes or sectors. &a;nbsp;Collectively, that group of 100 ETFs allows me to get a wide perspective on where returns are being made…and where they are not.

Now, I may not be the first one to tell you that simply looking at past returns is not a way to invest, even though I believe that the majority of investors and financial advisors do prioritize that (to their ultimate detriment). &a;nbsp;What I will highlight here are some ETFs that, through their returns and return patterns last year, tell us a&a;nbsp;&l;span&g;lot about market sentiment and possibly where some extremely overvalued and undervalued market areas lie&l;/span&g;. &a;nbsp;You see, market sectors often move from one extreme to the other over time.&a;nbsp; So while Wall Street analysts try to determine &a;ldquo;fair value&a;rdquo; of stocks, sectors and the broad market, prices don&a;rsquo;t care, and often overshoot targets in both directions.

    Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

The company has grown its dividend for 31 years consecutively, and its yield of 4.17% remains among one of the highest on the S&P 500.

Chevron has taken a dip in 2017, from a price of approximately $118 at the beginning of the year to $103 at the time of writing:
