    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Shares of Seaspan Corporation (NYSE:SSW) rallied 15% last month thanks to a bullish analyst note.

    So what

    Seaspan’s stock bobbed around the flatline for most of April until an analyst at Deutsche Bank upgraded the containership leasing company from hold to buy toward the end of the month. What stood out was the $13 price target, which was 85% above the bank’s previous one of $7 a share. Driving that bullish view is the expectation that Seaspan’s ability to deleverage its balance sheet and increase the dividend would fuel substantial share price appreciation in the future.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019: Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft (VLKAY)

  • [By ]

    Volkswagen AG (VLKAY) shares were also on the back foot, falling 2.4% in Frankfurt and holding down gains for the DAX performance index after news late Thursday that former CEO Martin Winterkorn had been charged with conspiracy by the U.S. Department of Justice for his role in the firm’s diesel-gate scandal.  

  • [By ]

    The ‘Jolt’ investing tip of the day actually goes out to C-suite executives across the word: Always watch your back because someone is always vying for the top gig. Reading the various Volkswagen (VLKAY) CEO shake-up news, it’s pretty clear new CEO Herbert Diess undermined his now former boss Matthias M眉ller. He reportedly built up a base of support among board members and shareholders to appoint him as CEO, despite M眉ller’s success turning around VW after the emissions scandal. Crazy, but hey it’s vicious out there.

    For example, FCA was the first to throw in the towel on “cars.” Ford is now following. Lately, brands such as Chevrolet (NYSE:GM), Toyota (NYSE:TM), Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) and Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) have professed their enduring commitment to sedans and similar “cars.” That’s probably true – at least directionally. Still, even those automakers will need to prune at least a little bit in their car/sedan portfolios over the next generational cycle, 5-10 years at the most. But the point is that they say they will not take as big of an axe to those offerings in the U.S. market, as FCA and Ford just did.

Top 10 Performing Stocks For 2018

After Budget 2018, buying and selling of shares and equity-oriented funds will no longer be tax-free even if held for over a year if you realize a gain of Rs 1 lakh during a fiscal year on selling.

Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley has imposed a 10% tax on Long-Term Capital Gains (LTCG) arising out of equity shares and equity-oriented mutual funds (subject to an annual exemption of Rs 1 lakh). Further, any dividend paid out by equity mutual fund has also been subjected to 10% dividend distribution tax. Broadly speaking, returns from equity investments (LTCG or dividend) will now be taxed at 10%. This cost will have to be factored in by the investors, S Vasudevan, Partner, Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan told Moneycontrol.

STCG (Short Term Capital Gain) arising from selling a stock or equity fund before one year will continue to be taxed at 15%.

The stock market reacted to the new tax regime with a sharp fall post budget. The market plunged by almost 1% soon after the announcement of the LTCG on equity investments and 10% DDT. However, equity investorsincluding mutual fund investorsmight absorb the blow and keep investing as per their financial objectives since equity remains one of the best-performing asset classes, Adhil Shetty, CEO BankBazaar.com said.

    During his recent, odd earnings call, Musk referred to business moats as “lame,” saying that if “your only defense against invading armies is a moat, you will not last long.” For those just joining us, in business a moat is a competitive advantage created by ownership of a strong brand name that discourages entry into the firm’s markets. Buffett has made a career of investing in firms with “moats” — think Apple, Coca-Cola (KO) , Kraft Heinz (KHC) , Burlington Northern Santa Fe or See’s Candy.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2018

No one in modern financial history comes close to matching Warren Buffett’s record as an investor.

Hedge fund managers like John Paulson and Kenneth Griffin have had huge years along the way, and more conventional money managers such as Peter Lynch have turned in stellar performances as well, but none has performed at such a high level over such a long period of time as the Oracle of Omaha.

When Buffett took control ofBerkshire Hathaway(NYSE: BRK-A)(NYSE: BRK-B) in 1965, it was an ailing textile company with a bleak future. Today, thanks to Buffett’s brilliance at capital allocation, Berkshire is the fourth-biggest company in the S&P 500as measured by market capitalization.

The compound annual increase in Berkshire’s book value per share has averaged 19% since Buffett grabbed the reins. That’s nearly double the compound annual gain of the S&P 500, which comes out to 9.7% over the same 52-year stretch.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2018: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Like last quarter, Energy Transfer Partners delivered strong earnings and cash flow growth. Because of that, the company was able to cover its jaw-dropping 12.4%-yielding distribution by a healthy 1.15 times. That slight decline from the year-ago quarter was caused by parent companyEnergy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE)significantly reducing its support. For a better comparison, the coverage ratio would have still been a solid 1.1 in this year’s first quarter without any assistance from Energy Transfer Equity, while it would have been a worrisome 0.98 in the year-ago period without the parent company’s help. That improvement isexactly what investors wanted to see this quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.

    Throughout its history, Starbucks has mostly had a company-owned model for its retail locations, a strategy that is at odds with a trend of activist investors pushing fast food, restaurant and coffee companies to franchise locations out to raise cash for stock buybacks and debt reduction. In recent years, activists have targeted Jamba Juice (JMBA) , Potbelly (PBPB) , Jack in the Box (JACK) , Wendys Co. (WEN) , McDonald’s (MCD) and elsewhere. In addition, Starbucks has a one-share, one-vote structure, which can make it vulnerable to an activist investor seeking to elect dissident director candidates as it pursued the strategy.

    As part of the agreement, Hikma will get to sell a generic version of the drug in question, narcolepsy treatment Xyrem, in 2023, for up to five years, while Jazz will get royalties on those sales.

    Janney Montgomery Scotts Ken Trbovich upgraded the shares from Neutral to Buy on the news, and also increased his price target from $138 to $175. From his note:

    While this comes about three years earlier than previous settlements with other generic filers, it eliminates the risk of an earlier launch. Six months thereafter Hikma may launch its own generic and others may potentially be able to launch as well. Importantly, Jazz will receive a meaningful royalty on sales, retain the right to launch its own AG, and can authorize other AGs after the initial 6-month Hikma period.
