Top 10 Stocks To Own Right Now

Facebook wants you to know when someone is trying to steal your data.

The social network unveiled on Wednesday a security feature that lets you see a list of recent emails sent by Facebook.

Hackers often send emails disguised as messages from companies like Facebook to trick users into giving them login and password information. The tactic, called phishing, is common among cybercriminals.

Now, if you receive an email from an address that appears to be Facebook (FB) — but don’t recognize the activity or the alert — a tool in its Security and Login section in Settings will tell you if it’s legit.

If the email claiming to be from Facebook isn’t listed there, you’ll know it’s fraudulent.

Facebook sends security emails from the domain “Facebookmail.com,” offering another way to check its authenticity. But if you don’t recognize the domain or sender, you can report the issue directly to Facebook.

Top 10 Stocks To Own Right Now: Discovery Communications, Inc.(DISCB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Discovery (NASDAQ:DISCB) announced its quarterly earnings results on Tuesday. The company reported $0.53 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $0.40 by $0.13, Morningstar.com reports. Discovery had a negative net margin of 7.40% and a positive return on equity of 19.34%. The company had revenue of $2.31 billion for the quarter.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCB) (NASDAQ:DISCK) has traded very cheaply over the past few years. As more and more U.S. consumers “cut the cord” on the traditional cable bundle, Discovery’s channels (which now include all Scripps Networks Interactive channels) have seen their subscriber counts decline. That, combined with the high debt load incurred for the company’s 2017 acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive, sent investors running for the hills last year. In 2017, the company’s three share classes dropped from roughly 10% to roughly 21%.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    You might think Discovery Inc.’s (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCK) (NASDAQ:DISCB) stations primarily feature nature videos and celebrity cooks, but did you know it’s actually becoming a player on the international sports scene? While known for its namesake Discovery Channel and documentary brands such as The Learning Channel, HGTV, and the Food Network, Discovery has actually been in the sports business since 2012, when it first acquired a minority stake in European sports channel Eurosport. Discovery was apparently pleased enough with the channel’s progress to buy 100% of Eurosport in July 2015, and that year, Eurosport won the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in Europe from 2018-2022.

Top 10 Stocks To Own Right Now: Xcerra Corporation(XCRA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The system that could make you $104,000 richer in the next 12 months…

    Shares of Tilray Inc. (NYSE: TLRY) surged more than 50% in pre-market hours. The stock popped after the company’s CEO Brendan Kennedy told CNBC that partnerships between marijuana companies and alcohol companies and pharmaceutical giants may be on the way. Kennedy said that he believes alcohol firms should enter the cannabis sector in order to hedge against the growth of cannabis. Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) is under scrutiny this morning. The electric car manufacturer said that the Justice Department has requested documents around the recent batch of tweets sent by CEO Elon Musk about plans to take his company private. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has also sent subpoenas to Goldman Sachs and Silver Lake, which have acted as advisers to and evaluated Tesla’s goal of going private. Musk’s announcement on Twitter in August sent shares of TSLA soaring. However, his statement may have violated federal regulations because Musk failed to file an 8-K notification form with the SEC before the announcement. Shares of Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) were on the move after the stock received an upgrade from Guggenheim Securities. The investment firm hiked its price target from $360 to $420 per share and said that the company’s local content strategy will bolster demand in India. The stock maintained its “Buy” rating. Look for additional earnings reports from Red Hat Inc. (NYSE: RHT), Copart Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT), Herman Miller Inc. (NASDAQ: MLHR), and Xcerra Corp. (NASDAQ: XCRA).

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: LC, GE, GS
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) has ousted its CEO John Flannery. Shares are up more than 10% as investors celebrated the news. GE has been mired in a slump, particularly its turbine business. The firm’s new CEO is H. Lawrence Culp, Jr., the former CEO of the industrial firm Danaher. Shares of LendingClub Corp. (NYSE: LC) are under pressure after the SEC charged one of the firm’s divisions with mishandling client money. This weekend, the firm reached a settlement with regulators on charges that the firm inflated its revenue and made changes to products to make the firm look healthier than it is. As a result, the firm’s board of directors forced CEO Renaud Laplanche to resign. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) has replaced CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who has stepped down after more than a decade at the helm at one of Wall Street’s most iconic banks. David Solomon – who has previously served as the firm’s president and COO – will now bet the new CEO.

General Electric has been under pressure since the financial crisis, and it was the worst performing stock on the Dow in 2017 before it was ultimately replaced on the index. Shares of Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) added 3.4% this morning, but the driver wasn’t necessarily positive for the global apparel giant. According to reports, the Baltimore-based sports apparel giant is cutting 3% of its international workforce. That equates to roughly 400 jobs.

    The only segment where earnings declined was the catch-all one labeled “all other,” which houses different investments such as its stake in Sunoco L.P. (NYSE:SUN) and PES, a refining joint venture. PES has struggled due to higher costs, and recently declared bankruptcy. Meanwhile, Energy Transfer’s earnings from Sunoco L.P. declined because that entity sold the bulk of its retail assets and then used that cash to repurchase a portion of Energy Transfer’s investment.

    Around this time last year, Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN) announced a transformative divestment. The sale of its extensive retail filling station network to convenience store specialist 7-Eleven was going to give management the cash it needed to clean up its balance sheet and provide it with a much more stable revenue source. One would have assumed that when the company made this transaction, Wall Street would reward the stock with a higher valuation. That hasn’t been the case, though, as Sunoco’s stock is still languishing with a sky-high distribution yield north of 12%.
