Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

Stocks couldn’t shake off early losses and all three major indexes ended lower on Thursday.

Bloomberg News

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 210.79 points, or 1.17%, to 17830.76. The S&P 500 Index fell 19.34 points, or 0.92%, to 2075.81. The Nasdaq slid 57.85 points, or 1.19%, to 4805.29.

Blue chips were dragged down by Apple (AAPL): Just days after its disappointing earnings, billionaire Carl Icahn said he no longer has a stake in the stock.

From a data standpoint, First quarter gross domestic product grew 0.5%, below economists’ expectations, overshadowing an upbeat jobs report that saw unemployment fall to a four-decade low.

Stifel’s Lindsey Piegza writes that this could push out any interest rate hikes:

From a policy standpoint, should the U.S. economy post meaningful improvement between now and June, assuming the Fed’s concerns surrounding international “risks” are not reignited, policy makers appear well positioned to announce the second rate hike in less than two months’ time.  Of course, following this morning’s disappointing GDP report, it’s difficult to imagine a marked improvement in the economy over the next two months.  More likely, the combination of stagnant economic conditions, a still-restrained consumer, and ongoing concerns regarding risks of contagion from developments abroad – whether directly identified in the statement or not – will make it increasingly difficult for the Fed to raise rates once in the remaining nine months of 2016, if at all.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    That growth is supported by improving the quality and effectiveness of ad products, producing a greater return for marketers, and thus enabling them to pay more for an ad. Competitors like Snap (NYSE:SNAP) and Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) have also boasted ofimproving returns on investment for their ad products, but that seems to stem largely from significant decreases in ad prices, not necessarily improved ad performance. Facebook’s ability to continue improving its ad products will enable it to fend off the competition.

IP30, which means peak month production of a well, usually expressed in barrel per day (bpd) refers to oil only here.

The official NDIC (North Dakota Industrial Commission) database lists 71 operators having drilled horizontal wells in North Dakota’s Bakken. The table below shows average IP30 values and the associated number of wells for each half year since the beginning of 2014 for all active companies which came up with at least 40 new wells with IP30 since then.

The numbers are based on sales (runs) and show barrels of oil, not boe. On the aggregate level presented her, the difference between runs and production is in the order of 1%. The reason for choosing runs is that the data of confidential wells are as up to date as the date of non confidential wells. By contrast, production data of confidential wells are published with a significant time lag. Only horizontal wells with reported completion dates are considered (currently close to 98% of all new Bakken wells).

    Retail stocks are in focus after the U.S. Census Bureau released monthly sales figures before the bell Tuesday. The bureau said that retail sales increased by 0.3% in April, a figure that matched trade expectations. Markets had expected consumer spending to increase, however home improvement sales were not the major factor that most expected. This was evident from The Home Depot’s earnings report. Markets are increasingly optimistic over U.S. trade negotiations with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No. 1 economic advisor will visit the United States this week to continue the nation’s dialogue with America. In addition, roughly 100 companies and trade associations will be sounding off to the Trump administration about the potential impact of tariffs in the Chinese markets.

On Monday, the Seattle’s City Council passed a bill that will tax Amazon and 131 other companies $275 per employee each year in order to create a fund to address homelessness in the Seattle. The tax is half what was originally proposed and remains a contentious issue for Amazon, which is the city’s biggest employer. Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) is sounding the alarm about the state of the markets. The company warned that the U.S. budget deficit is increasing while America’s unemployment rate is falling. This hasn’t occurred since the World War II. The bank believes that the combination of the two could cause the Fed to spike interest rates in the near future. This comes at a time when the Fed has already lost control of interest rates. Look for additional earnings reports from Eagle Materials Inc.

Top 10 China Stocks To Buy For 2018

May 4, 2018: Markets opened slightly lower Friday but traders didn’t wait long to put equities on a dead path up and to the right. A not-too-bad report on non-farm payrolls threatened to raise worries about inflation but some pressure is off now that trade talks with China have begun. Tech stocks also performed especially well in the session.

WTI crude oil for June delivery settled at $69.72 a barrel, up 1.9% for the day and more than 2% for the week. June gold added about about 0.2% on the day to settle at $1,314.70. Equities were headed for a higher close about 10 minutes before the bell as the Dow traded up 1.46% for the day, the S&P 500 traded up 1.30%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded up 1.76%.

Bitcoin futures (XBTK8) for May delivery traded at $9,670, down less than 0.1% on the CBOE after opening at $9,690 this morning. The trading range today was $9,530 to $9,840.

The Dow stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close Friday was Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) which traded up 4.02% at $184.00 in a 52-week range of $142.20 to $184.00, a new high posted today. Volume of more than 48 million shares was about 35% above the daily average. The company company’s iPhone X grabbed the Q1 market share crown and Warren Buffett added 75 million Apple shares today to bring his stake in the company to right around 5%.
