11 Best & Worst Broker-Dealers: Q4 Earnings, 2016

On the same day that the Dow Jones industrial average topped 21,000, reaching a new intraday and closing record, Vincent Reinhart, chief economist of Standish Mellon Asset Management, told a luncheon gathering focused on President Trump’s first 100 days in office that the “market pricing in too much too soon … expecting too much out of DC. The policy process always takes longer.”

He should know. Reinhart spent more than 20 years in Washington, working for the Federal Reserve in various positions including director of its monetary affairs division and economist of its policymaking Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) before becoming resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and then chief economist at Morgan Stanley.

No matter. “More significant changes will be done at the agency level, tweaking regulations and enforcing them,” said Reinhart. “Who enforces regulations matter more than who writes them.”

    Stocks to Watch Today: KHC, HD, JWN, M, AAPL
    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more.

Top Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) is making an acquisition that might fly under the radar of many auto and alternative energy industry watchers. While nothing in the world is ever free, the deal structure makes this acquisition come at little to no real out of pocket costs for the top electric car maker. Shares of Maxwell Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: MXWL) were surging on the news that it was being acquired by Tesla. Even after rising almost 50%, the $210 million market cap is a tiny drop in the bucket for Tesla, when considering that its market cap is over $50 billion.

Perhaps the main focus for Tesla is Maxwell’s dry electrode manufacturing technology that can be applied to the manufacturing of batteries. Its ultracapacitor products are said to offer safe and reliable power solutions for applications in consumer and industrial electronics, and in transportation, renewable energy and information technology.

As a reminder, Tesla’s long-term ambition is not just in electric cars. The company acquired the Musk-backed SolarCity company and offers solar power, the Powerwall energy storage system and backup power solutions.

    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.

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2018

Shutterstock

When blue chips get too popular – like the five I’m going to show you today – these “safe stocks” can actually be dangerous to continue holding in your portfolio.

The problem with blue-chip stocks? Call it the “Curse of the Dow.” The Curse says a stock that joins the Dow Jones Industrial Average will essentially hit a wall, underperforming in the ensuing months compared to how it performed before ascension. It’s not perfect, but it’s close – since 1999, 15 of 16 stocks that have joined the Dow have averaged 1% gains over the next six months, but averaged 11% gains in the six months before inclusion.

Why? There are a few factors, but one of the most prevailing is that by the point a stock has joined the Dow, it’s typically nearing the end of its growth ramp and reaching the slower-growth “mature” part of the business cycle.
