    As Deutsche Bank AG (DB) , Germany’s largest lender, retreats from its global ambitions in investment-banking and trading, Wall Street heavyweights JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) , Citigroup Inc. (C) and Bank of America Corp. (BAC) are poised to pick up the business that’s left behind.

  • [By John Maxfield]

    Maxfield: I think we mixed up some numbers. Theirrevenue as a percent of assets is4.92%, which is the highest in its peer group, and itspeer group are the really large, too-big-to-fail banks,JPMorgan Chase(NYSE: JPM), Citigroup(NYSE: C), Bank of America(NYSE: BAC), Wells Fargo(NYSE: WFC), plusother large regional banks. So that’s the largestwith one exception, and that isCapital One(NYSE: COF). The reason that Capital One’srevenue is so high as a percentage of assets is because a very largeportion of its loan portfolioconsists of credit card loans, and those yield,as everybody knows, a lot more than, say, a homemortgage does. So its revenue as a percent of assets isthe top in its peer group. But then,if you translate that over intoprofitability,that’s where that 1.1% return on assets is. When you’retalking about profitability for banks, there’stwo measures that you want to look at: yourreturn on assets andyour return on equity. Return on assets is basically yourunlevered profitability. Your return on equity is your leveredprofitability. Here’s the interesting thing about PNC, andthis is one of the reasons that it doesn’t pop up a lot wheninvestors are looking for the top-performing banks — it’s because theirreturn on common equity last year was8.58%. When you’relooking for a 10% return on equity, you think, that’sactually meaningfully below that standard industry benchmark that you want to see. But the reason that it’s below,as we see with its good return on assets,is just because it’s not very levered,which means it’s a very safe bank that’sstill earning a lot of money if you look at it on a levered basis.

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

    Shares of Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY), a biopharmaceutical company that develops medicines to treat pain and other supportive-care products, tumbled by as much as 11% during Wednesdays trading session before recovering to finish lower by less than 2%. The reason for the volatile trading can probably be traced to carryover from the company’s first-quarter earnings release before the opening bell on Tuesday.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Well, the time to start buying would have been last February–when everything started rallying. Since February 11, 2016, shares of Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP) have doubled, while Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) and CNX Coal Resources (CNXC) have tripled. Of course, Peabody Energy was fast approaching bankruptcy then, so missed out on that amazing run.

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

This review updates my initial look at Costamare (NYSE:CMRE) from my July 28, 2016, article “Will Costamare Shipping Weather The Storm? An Update.”

Though I hope you will read the original linked article in full, my bottom line assessment and buy recommendation at the time were as follows:

The press release, which I have provided the link to, is well worth the read. Cutting to the chase, this company has continued to “deliver solid and profitable results” in a sector badly damaged by low container shipping rates. Yet as I predicted, the larger and more stable companies like CMRE and SSW would handle the downturn while their peers might not. Additionally, Costamare has taken steps to further insure its survival by extending its credit lines through refinancing existing loan facilities and entering into new loan agreements. It has also added to its fleet and has successfully extended long term charter agreements with reliable counter-parties that, as far as I’m concerned, bodes well for this company’s future.

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Nuveen Municipal Value Fund Inc.(NUV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Donald van Deventer]

    The latest implied forward rate forecast from Kamakura Corporation shows projected 10-year U.S. Treasury yields differing -0.07% to 0.03% from last week while fixed rate mortgage yields varied by -0.01% to 0.08%. Mortgage yields, determined by the Monday through Wednesday weekly survey of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, lag Treasury movements simply because of the 3-day yield calculation used in the Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield is projected to rise from 2.92% at Thursday’s close (down 0.06% from last week) to 3.374% (down 0.06% from last week) in one year. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield in ten years is forecast to reach 4.639%, 1 basis point lower than last week. The 15-year fixed rate mortgage rate is forecast to rise from the effective yield of 3.69% on Thursday (down 0.001% from last week) to 4.222% (down 0.006% from last week) in one year and 6.29% in 10 years, up 0.038% from last week. We explain the background for these calculations in the rest of this note, along with some mortgage servicing rights metrics. The forecast allows investors in exchange traded U.S. Treasury funds (TLT) (TBT), total return bond funds (BOND), municipal bonds (NUV) and exchange traded mortgage funds (REM) to assess likely total returns over the next 120 months. Treasury-related exchange traded funds affected by the forward rates include:

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Atkore International Group Inc. (ATKR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

stock market latest news

LONDON–The North Sea oil grades that underpin the global Brent crude price benchmark have been expanded to address the region’s declining production, price reporting agency S&P Global Platts announced Monday.

Oil from the Troll field in the Norwegian part of the North Sea will be added to the basket of crude used to calculate the benchmark from 2018, Platts said.

The Brent crude price, based on four physical oil streams extracted from fields in the North Sea, is what the majority of the world’s physical crude is priced off.

The existing basket used to set the price includes Brent Ninian Blend, Forties, Oseberg and Ekofisk. The addition of Troll, a field operated by Norway’s Statoil ASA
STO, -0.73%
should increase deliverable supplies by around 20%. It will also mean Statoil overtakes Royal Dutch Shell PLC
RDSA
as the most dominant producer of the streams used to calculate the Brent price.

Hot Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

Saudi Aramco could be valued at $2 trillion, making the Saudi Aramco IPO worth a massive $100 billion. That will make it the biggest IPO ever once the company goes public.

But the media is overlooking one key aspect of the Aramco IPO and is instead only focusing on the deal’s size.

Even though Saudi Arabia is only selling a 5% stake in the company, it will still potentially raise $100 billion. That’s more than four times the size of the current record set by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA) and its $25 billion 2014 IPO.
