Top Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now

The stock market kept performing well on Monday, and the Dow Jones Industrials posted its 12th straight all-time record high. Market sentiment was sunny following the release of Warren Buffett’s annual shareholder letter over the weekend, and the Oracle of Omaha made positive comments about the sustainability of the current bull market, which was able to overcome early declines in the major market benchmarks. However, some stocks didn’t fare as well as the overall market, and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), AmTrust Financial Services (NASDAQ:AFSI), and Horizon Pharma (NASDAQ:HZNP) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.  

Tesla gets a poor review

Shares of Tesla fell 4% after the electric car manufacturer received a downgrade from analysts at Goldman Sachs. The Wall Street giant cut its rating on Tesla from neutral to sell, citing concerns about the company’s ability to launch its Model 3 mass-market sedan, execute on the strategy behind its acquisition of solar specialist SolarCity, and deal with the need to tap the capital markets to raise cash. Yet even the bearish analysts admit that Tesla has a competitive advantage over rival automakers with respect to the technology and architecture of its electric vehicles, and Tesla’s efforts to boost battery production appear to be working. Nevertheless, the question facing investors is whether Tesla can execute well on the huge opportunity it has in front of it, and at least in Goldman’s eyes, that could prove more difficult than initially thought.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    On Thursday, the European Central Bank held its meeting in Latvia to discuss the future of its quantitative easing program. The central bank of the world’s largest economic bloc said that it will likely end its quantitative easing program in December. This represents an extension beyond the current plan to end the stimulus program in September. ECB President Mario Draghi said the program would be reduced to 15 billion euros each month during the final three months of the year. Yesterday, the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates for the second time in 2018. The central bank said that economic growth has been rising at a solid rate and hinted that it could raise rates two more times this year. Fed Chair Jerome Powell did raise an alarm on Wednesday after stating that companies are holding back on investment due to ongoing concerns about U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade policies. Trump is expected to decide this week on whether to proceed with tariffs on about $50 billion in Chinese goods. Trade tensions are heating up again. This morning, China announced it would call off its deal to avoid a trade war if the Trump administration proceeds with tariffs on Friday morning. Tomorrow, the Trump team will decide if it will hit China with tariffs on roughly $50 billion in goods.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Own For 2019

It doesn’t take much for bottom fishers to get excited about General Electric (GE). An underperforming cyclical business and rock bottom share prices are definitely an alluring combination for those looking to capitalize on the stock’s “cheapness.”

A while back I stated that General Electric’s stock could get interesting at $18. This was when the stock traded at $30. Since then, shares have declined well past the $18 level to as low as $13 before coming back recently on the back of the restructuring story getting more traction. Despite this general optimism towards the company’s ongoing restructuring efforts, I believe that the company is now uninvestable.

Restructuring Hoopla

General Electric is definitely making a lot of noise. The company is aiming for $20 billion of asset sales, and the management is considering “all options.” A part of the management’s grand plan was unveiled this week with the announcement of a merger between the company’s transportation unit and Wabtec (WAB). Based on the stock’s positive movement on Monday, it is clear that investors are buying the narrative that the management is righting the ship.
