Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019: Shaw Communications Inc.(SJR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    We have you covered. This week, we did our digging into the numbers, and we have found three stocks that could surge 80% or more in the months ahead. Let’s dig into them as the market opens… right here.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    A leaked report from a Chinese government think tank warned of “financial panic” across the country. In addition to concerns about the ongoing trade battle with the United States, the National Institution for Finance & Development warned about the ongoing use of leverage in the stock market. The think tank argued that China’s central bank must be ready to step in and support the nation’s markets (the Shanghai Composite is off 20% since January) in the event of a liquidity crisis. This morning, the U.S. Department of Commerce said that Q1 gross domestic product (GDP) growth slowed far more than analysts had expected. During January through March, we saw the weakest levels of consumer spending in roughly five years. GDP clocked in at just 2.0%, a downturn from the 2.2% reported by the agency last month. Markets appear to believe that the economy has rebounded during the second quarter thanks in part to the massive tax cuts in January. However, ongoing trade tensions and increasing uncertainty around the globe could potentially spur a panic at any time. In 2018, major telecom carriers will begin rolling out 5G networks across the country, and the development could be one of the biggest ever. This technological leap is creating some incredible profit opportunities for tech stocks. According to Swedish network equipment manufacturer Ericsson ADR (Nasdaq: ERIC), new 5G-related features could produce as much as $1.3 trillion annually in additional revenue for carriers by 2026. Just imagine how much money you could make if you get in early and invest right now in the top 5G stocks. It would be a fortune. Today, we show you the undervalued stock that is going to lead this revolution, and it could make you rich.

BEIJING–Activity in smaller cities propped up home-price growth in China in August, but deceleration in coming months would signal a move into a downturn, some economists say.

The average price of new homes in 70 cities rose 0.2% in August from July, excluding government-subsidized housing, according to calculations from The Wall Street Journal based on data released Monday by the National Bureau of Statistics. That compares with a 0.5% on-month gain in July.

Compared with the same period a year earlier, average new home prices rose 8.2% in August after a 9.3% increase in July.

Smaller inland cities continued to lead month-to-month growth in August. Home prices in Guilin, known for its scenic hills, and Hohhot, a city in Inner Mongolia, were each up 1%. Prices also rose 0.9% in Mudanjiang, a city near the border with Russia.

Hot Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019

Every night in 1995, I would deposit money overnight in a different currency…   Sounds strange, I realize.   But back then, as the vice president of a global mutual fund, one of my jobs was to execute our fund's trades.   Once our U.S. trading day was done, we wanted our money to work for us overnight as well. We might put our money into French francs, German marks, or somewhere else – just for the night.   We would find the safest country that was paying the highest interest rate. And we would put our money there overnight. No kidding.   As I'll explain today, what we were doing wasn't anything special…   Big companies like German automaker Volkswagen and Japanese automaker Honda (and thousands of other companies) have cash-management departments that do basically the same thing – on a much larger scale.

    Thursday was a great day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks responded favorably to news that the U.S. and China would meet again to try to negotiate their differences on the trade front. The manufacturing-heavy Dow Jones Industrial Average fared the best out of the most-followed indexes, reflecting the key role that global trade plays in those companies’ opportunities for revenue growth and profit. Broader-based measures did well but weren’t able to keep up with the Dow in percentage terms. Still, some individual companies suffered from bad news that sent their shares lower. Dillard’s (NYSE:DDS), MiMedx Group (NASDAQ:MDXG), and Global Net Lease (NYSE:GNL) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018

I hate holiday crowds. The one person I know who hates them more is my younger brother. The only reason we found ourselves braving the chaos of the mall that Christmas five years ago was my mother.

It’s her favorite holiday, and all she wanted was a picture of her kids with Santa Claus. I was 19 and he was 17. But off we went.

We expected a long line, screaming children and frazzled parents — and we got them. But then there he was: A red-suited, rosy-faced, bearded Santa. And, as it turns out, a graduate of a special school that turns average Joes into St. Nicks.

After all, anyone can put on a red suit and a white beard and call himself Santa. The pros know it takes more than looks alone.

That’s where Noerr Programs comes in — a company that specializes in holiday productions. They build the sets, take the photos and provide Santa himself for malls around the country.

The company makes sure its Santas are up to snuff by sending them to Santa University, a four-day boot camp for aspiring Kriss Kringles in Arvada, Colorado.
