Top 5 Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The British pound is on a scorching rally, making it the best performing major currency of the year so far.

Badly battered in the aftermath of Britain’s 2016 vote to leave the European Union, the currency has staged a major comeback, and has climbed 6% against the dollar and 3% against the euro this year alone.

The pound is gaining ground despite the fact that Brexit remains full of uncertainties. A trade deal between the United Kingdom and the European Union, its biggest trading partner, is far from certain, meaning the country might still crash out of the bloc without one. That would be disastrous for British companies and the wider economy.

So why the boom in the pound?

Kallum Pickering, senior economist at Berenberg, said that while the United Kingdom is missing out on the current global growth upswing because of Brexit, the economy is still doing much better than investors anticipated after the referendum.

The economy grew by 1.7% in 2017. That was weaker than 2016, but way better than the 1.1% predicted by the International Monetary Fund in the wake of the referendum. (Before the vote in June 2016, the IMF had forecast the United Kingdom to grow by 2.2% in 2017.)

Costco (NASDAQ:COST) has not raised membership fees in the United States and Canada since November 2011, and CFO RIchard Galanti hinted during its Q1 earnings call in December 2016 that an increase was coming this year.Those hints will become reality on June 1.

In addition, the company will increase the cost for its Executive Memberships in the U.S. and Canada from $110 to $120 on the same date. Executive members get 2% back on eligible purchases at the warehouse club with a previous limit of $750 cash back each year.

Snapchat, an app once written off as a sexting tool, is now worth more than $30 billion — and the people who recognized its value early enough are in for a big payday.

Snap (SNAP), the parent company of Snapchat, saw its stock open at $24 a share in its public market debut Thursday, valuing it at about $33 billion.

At that price, Snap will spawn a new group of paper billionaires and millionaires.

Evan Spiegel

Evan Spiegel, Snap’s secretive 26-year-old CEO and cofounder, is credited with being the company’s guiding force and product visionary. So it’s only fitting he will come away with the biggest haul from the IPO.

Spiegel’s 210 million shares are now worth $5.06 billion based on the opening price. Spiegel planned to sell 16 million shares as part of the IPO, netting another $272 million.

And, if that’s not enough, he’s entitled to receive another 36.8 million shares over the next three years as a “CEO Award” for taking the company public, according to Snap’s IPO filing.

    While this can mean excess volatility on the world markets, a silver lining (pun intended) is that mining companies are growing in market favor. Taranis Resources Inc. (OTCBB: TNREF) (TSE: TRO.V), a mining and mineral exploration company based in Colorado and Vancouver, BC, is well positioned for growth in the current volatile markets, largely due to its Thor Deposit, an advanced-stage gold-silver-lead-zinc-copper mineral deposit that has near-surface mineralization that can be extracted with a low cost, open pit mine. Recent discoveries in The Thor Deposit, which is 100% owned by Taranis (OTCBB: TNREF) (TSE: TRO.V), indicate that the area could be prime for development into a significantly bigger mine.

The 10-year Treasury yield on Wednesday surged the most in three years to trade above 2%, a level not seen since January, on expectations Donald Trump will significantly boost fiscal spending, adding to the countrys debt burden.

Right now, its a fear trade, said Kevin Giddis, head of fixed-income capital markets at Raymond James. While it is very early and most are trying to understand the forward thinking, the general perception is that a Donald Trump presidency will take us further into debt and ultimately be inflationary, affecting the values of all debt, including Treasurys.

Hot Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Starbucks Corporation(SBUX)

    Another company Fitz-Gerald is watching is Starbucks Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX).

    The company is expanding its presence in China — it plans to have more than 5,000 stores opened by 2021 — a 1,150% increase from the 400 SBUX stores local to China in 2011. It also intends to install a 30,000-square-foot premium roaster on West Nanjing Road in Shanghai’s shopping district.

    The Starbucks (SBUX) inside Trump Tower has seen traffic drop dramatically. The shop’s usual customers, deterred by the barricades, armed guards and bomb-sniffing dogs outside, are getting their caffeine fix elsewhere.

    There are obvious similarities between McDonald’s (MCD) and Starbucks (SBUX). The global fast serve giants are ubiquitous from U.S. to China and nearly everywhere in between.

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Sure, this is only a test, but it’s the antithesis of the company’s recent strategy, which is to differentiate itself from mammoth competitors like McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE:MCD) and Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) through a never-ending cycle of rapid menu innovation. The recently introduced “Pretzel Croissant Breakfast Sandwich,” which Dunkin’ describes as a culinary mashup, is a fine example of how the risk-taking chain makes even Starbucks’ food innovation look timid.
