Top 5 Safest Stocks For 2022

One day many years ago, I found myself stuck in traffic and noticed a peculiar sign. It said something about the construction that was going on — the very thing that was hampering my commute.

It said all this construction was being funded by a bond. This was before I had ever started my career in finance, so bonds were an unfamiliar thing. But when I began my investment career, I soon realized that I could actually invest in these things. And the more I learned, the more I was ecstatic.

After all, If you can’t beat ’em, might as well make money off them…

You see, these types of bonds have a name — general obligation bonds — a type of municipal, or “muni” bond for short. These bonds are used for everything from helping fund road construction to building schools, bridges, water infrastructure and other public buildings. As I became more familiar with municipal bonds, I quickly became a fan. In fact, in my experience, muni-bonds are one of the safest ways for investors to earn income in today’s market — while also beating the tax man. (More on that in a moment.)

Top Stocks To Watch For 2019

There are well over 100 different majors college students can potentially choose, and it’s no big secret that graduating college will generally boost your earnings power. Having said that, there’s a huge difference in earning power among the choices. Not only do some earn dramatically more than others, but many fields have minuscule unemployment rates and some high-earning fields don’t require education beyond a bachelor’s degree to attain a six-figure salary.

With that in mind, a recent Bankrate report examined 162 college majors and the Americans who hold degrees in them to determine which were the most and least valuable as defined by three factors — average annual income, unemployment rate, and the need for a graduate degree. Here are the five most valuable and a bit about why each one ranked so highly.

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019

KR Choksey’s research report on ICICI Bank

Advances grew to INR 5123 bn, +10.4% yoy/1.4% qoq, primarily driven by retail exposure which grew 20.6% yoy/5.9% qoq. NII came at INR 60.2 bn, up 1% yoy/5.5% qoq. NIMs at 3.1% held stable qoq. The bank saw large one-off other income on account of stake sale in ICICI Securities (INR 33.2 bn) which were prudently used towards shoring up the PCR. Provisioning at INR 66.3 bn is up 1.3x yoy/86% qoq, translating into credit costs of >5% vs. 3% last quarter. Going forward, as the stress subsides, the bank has guided for normalized credit costs in the range of 80-100 bps. The bank reported a PAT of INR 10.2 bn (-50% yoy), largely weighed down by heavy provisioning expense.

Outlook

With the massive reduction in the drilldown list, the focus should now shift towards effecting recoveries from the NPA pool. Though quantum of unrecognised stress at INR 133.7 bn forms about 2.6% of the loans which will continue to be monitored. Increasing share of retail, shrinking the non-lucrative international book and resolution of NPAs should aid in NIMs recovery and subsiding of stress assets should translate into lower credit costs. We value the consolidated entity on SOTP basis, valuing the bank at 1.8x FY20E ABV and adding INR 113 per share for the subs. We recommend BUY.

Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition.
