    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) is leading a busy day of earnings reports on Tuesday. Shares are off 0.4% after the firm despite reporting a 40% year-over-year jump in profits and stronger-than-expected revenue. The firm reported earnings per share (EPS) of $5.98 on top of $9.40 billion in revenue. The Wall Street giant was expected to report EPS of $4.67 on top of $8.71 billion in revenue. The investment bank’s first six months of 2018 were its strongest in nine years. The stock slipped after the company announced that president David Solomon will be replacing CEO Lloyd Blankfein when he steps down from his role. Blankfein has been CEO for 12 years. It’s fair to say thatAmazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) went to the dogs on Monday. The company has extended its Prime Day promotion through 3 a.m. on Wednesday. The announcement came after the firm suffered significant outages during the start of the event on Monday afternoon. Rather than get access to deals, many customers were met with pictures of dogs, the firm’s standard error page. Finally, pay close attention to events on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee will question leaders of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) about how they store and filter user content. Last year, the Senate and House of Representatives slammed the companies for their roles in and responses to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

    Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) has been the hands-down winner over Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) in terms of stock performance over the last year. It’s the same story for revenue generated. Celgene beat Amgen in earnings, but only because of a technicality: Amgen incurred a big one-time tax hit in 2017.

According to David Blitzer, managing director and chair of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, the change is part of an effort to increase value and prominence of consumer goods, finance, healthcare, and technology firms on the U.S. economy. GE is the last original member to be removed from the index. Shares of Boeing Co.(NYSE BA), DowDuPont Inc. (NYSE: DOW), and Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) are getting pounded on concerns that a full-blown trade war may accelerate and hurt major exporters to China. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump announced he may seek tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese goods. Trump has asked U.S. trade representatives to identify potential products on which the United States could implement a 10% tariff. Recent trade volatility has erased all gains in the Dow Jones in 2018. Walt Disney Co.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Google is going on a U.S. hiring spree, increasing its footprint outside of Silicon Valley.

The Mountain View, California-based company is expanding or opening offices in nine states, Google (GOOG) CEO Sundar Pichai said during an earnings call on Thursday.

“We plan to hire thousands of people across the U.S. this year,” said Pichai. “Last year in the US we grew faster outside the Bay Area than in the Bay Area. To support this growth, we will be making significant investments in offices across nine states, including Colorado and Michigan.”

Typically considered a Silicon Valley company, the plans are consistent with Google’s U.S. hiring in recent years. The company currently has an office or a data center in 21 states.

The Alphabet-owned company will also open or build five new data centers in the United States in 2018. The company currently has six open data centers in states including Oklahoma, Iowa and North Carolina.

A single data center only employs between 70 and 350 people. Though their data centers don’t generate huge numbers of jobs, tech companies typically receive local and state tax incentives in exchange for picking certain locations.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The other producing lithium miners, and soon to be producers. I have discussed these previously in detail here, here and here. Needless to say, the top 3 producers are non-pure plays (SQM (NYSE:SQM), Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), and FMC Corp. (NYSE:FMC)). The top pure play currently producing miners are Orocobre (ASX:ORE) (OTCPK:OROCF), Tianqi Lithium (SHE:002466), Jiangxi Ganfeng Lithium, Galaxy Resources, Mineral Resources [ASX:MIN] (OTC:MALRF), and Neometals [ASX:NMT] (OTC:RRSSF). The near-term producers include Altura Mining [ASX:AJM] (OTCPK:ALTAF), Pilbara Minerals (ASX:PLS) (OTC:PILBF), Kidman Resources (ASX:KDR), Critical Elements, Nemaska Lithium (OTCQX:NMKEF) [TSX:NMX], Lithium Americas (OTCQX:LACDF) [TSX:LAC], Lithium X (OTCQX:LIXXF) (TSXV:LIX), Neo Lithium, and Bacanora Minerals (OTC:BCRMF) [TSXV:BCN], Advantage Lithium (OTCQB:AVLIF) [AAL], European Metals (OTCPK:MNTCF, ASX:EMH, AIM:EMH) and Pure Energy (OTCQB:PEMIF) [PE].

    The question now is more about speed of EV implementation. On the supply side, it has been great to see LAC, Pilbara Minerals (OTCPK:PILBF) and Altura Mining (OTCPK:ALTAF) get funding, but the continued issues with Albemarle’s (NYSE:ALB) LaNegra II expansion and Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF) ramping up to Phase 1 capacity of 17,500 tonnes/year of lithium carbonate are further evidence that lithium projects take time and have considerable execution risk.

    Making mining equipment has been a horrible business over the last few years. The industry has been hard-hit by the spending cutbacks at mine sites around the world. For example, BHP Billiton Limited trimmed its capital exploration expenditures by roughly 70% between fiscal 2013 and 2016. No wonder Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Komatsu Ltd. (NASDAQOTH:KMTUY), and Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) have been hurting. Only that looks like it’s starting to change, which means this trio could be at the top of a list of mining equipment companies to buy in 2017.

Top Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2018

Q: The stock market seems to be reaching new record highs every day. Are there any stocks that still look cheap?

Corporate earnings have exhibited pretty impressive growth as a whole over the past few years, so the market’s performance is somewhat justified. However, many stocks do look to be rather expensive right now — particularly in the tech sector. Yet some bargains remain.

One of my favorite “cheap” stocks right now is AT&T (NYSE: T), even after shares popped following the company’s strong quarterly report. The telecom giant pays a dividend yielding more than 5% and is a Dividend Aristocrat, meaning that it has increased its dividend for more than 25 consecutive years.

Despite a low price-to-earnings multiple of just 13 times 2017’s expected earnings, AT&T has lots of room to grow, especially thanks to its purchase of DIRECTV and its pending acquisition of Time Warner, both of which should give it an advantage over the competition when it comes to bundling services and broadcasting content directly to smartphones and tablets.

I’ve also included the most directly applicable sales numbers for its peers,O’Reilly Automotive Inc (NASDAQ:ORLY), AutoZone, Inc (NYSE:AZO) and Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (NYSE:AAP). The disappointing sales performance of Advance Auto Parts is largely due to the effects of integrating a troublesome acquisition.
