    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, PFE, AAPL
    Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) will likely generate a lot of buzz on Monday. Three days ago, company CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla would remain a publicly traded firm. The statement comes just weeks after Musk tweeted that he had secured investment to take the company private at $420 per share. That tweet spurred an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and a lawsuit by short sellers of Tesla stock. TSLA shares were off 3% this morning. All eyes today are on Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) stock. The drug giant is poised to release the results of its phase 3 study for its drug Tafamidis. The specialty drug targets a heart disease known as transthyretin cardiomyopathy. Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) hit a historic milestone on Aug. 2. The tech giant’s market capitalization topped $1 trillion, making it the first firm to ever hit that value. The company continues to churn profits as more firms tap into its product pipeline. AAPL stock predictionsare a dime a dozen, but the fact is that this stock remains a bargain because of its price/earnings ratio. We explain why AAPL stock is still a bargain. Look for earnings reports from HEICO Corp. (NYSE: HEI) and American Wordmark Corp.(Nasdaq: AMWD).

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now

Like it or not, by the time you turn 30, you’re basically a full-fledged adult, and with that comes certain financial responsibilities you’ll need to get a handle on. Here are three money-related goals you should aim to achieve by age 30.

1. Have a fully loaded emergency fund

Life has a way of surprising us, both for better and for worse. But sometimes, those unpleasant surprises come in the form of automobile breakdowns, busted appliances at home, or medical bills that catch us off guard. And let’s not forget the possibility of getting laid off at work — something that can happen to even the most diligent employees among us.

IMAGE SOURCE: GETTY IMAGES.

That’s why it’s crucial to have a healthy emergency fund. While you might struggle to sock away that money when you’re younger, by the time you turn 30, that account should be nice and robust. At a minimum, your emergency fund should contain enough cash to cover three months’ worth of living expenses, but for better protection, aim for six months’ worth. This means that if you typically spend $3,000 a month on bills, your goal should be to have $18,000 in savings.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Macy's Inc(M)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Macy’s (NYSE:M) wrapped up its 2018 fiscal year last week. The iconic department store giant won’t report its full results until later this month, but it already reduced its full-year earnings per share guidance to a range of $3.95 to $4.00 in an early January investor update. (On the bright side, that’s still higher than Macy’s initial EPS forecast for fiscal 2018.)

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    The retailer puts part of the blame on the weather, but the cooler temps didn’t seem to effect Macy’s (NYSE: M), which reported truly robust results that had many expecting J.C. Penney would follow suit. Although Macy’s did say a few markets were impacted, they were offset by others that were not. That weather should drag down Penney when it has more stores than its rival — which should have spread out the impact more — indicates it is more of an excuse than a reason.

    Analysts are expecting Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) to have earned $0.65 per share on revenue of $12.43 billion in the latest quarter. Cisco will release earnings after the markets close. Cisco shares declined 0.07 percent to $45.45 in after-hours trading.
