Top 10 Prefered Stocks To Own For 2017

When it comes to wedding gifts, its not just the thought that counts. The money counts, too. The average wedding guest will spend $127 on a gift for a family member, according to a 2016 American Express spending survey, and $99 on a gift for a friend. Youre wasting your money by giving gifts that brides and grooms dont want and wont use.

The safe course, naturally, is to stick to the couples gift registry. The key to giving a good wedding gift is pretty simple: Get the couple what they want and what they have asked for, says Sarah Trotter of Lasting Impressions Weddings of Minnetonka, Minn. Nothing on the registry you like or can afford? Then give cash, says Trotter.

The 1,803 adults surveyed by American Express concur: 37% prefer gifts from a registry, followed by cash (31%) and gift cards (13%). Just 5% want a gift thats not on the registry. (And if you insist on going off-registry, at least include a gift receipt.)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Federico Zaldua]

    Beazer Homes USA (BZH), the diversified home-builder which is held by Mario Gabelli from GAMCO Investors, is my top play among single-family and multi-family home builders. While I believe higher interest rates should slow the pace of margin expansion for Beazer, I also believe higher top line growth will more than compensate interest rate effects on net earnings. As a matter of fact, I think gross margins are going to go north of 17.5% by the end of 2014 while top-line should keep on growing at a rate of 25%.

    For the past year, Exelon Corp. (EXC) has had a roller coaster ride, with the stock having plummeted 15% since September 2012 – the company had announced a dividend cut of 41%, which led to a drop in the share price. Separately, the recent weak PJM auction prices did not bode well for the company. However, I believe the worst is priced in the stock price, and the company’s management is committed to improving its financial flexibility and cost structure in order to strengthen its financial performance. Also, the company is planning to incur capital expenditure (CAPEX) in the upcoming years, which will result in rate base growth for Exelon.
