Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2021

President Donald Trump introduced his 2019 budget blueprint on Monday. He makes some pretty unrealistic claims about how his current proposals would reduce deficits.

His budget proposes to slash them by more than $3 trillion over the next decade, bringing the annual deficit down from 4.4% of GDP this year to 1.1% by 2028.

How? Largely by proposing severe spending cuts combined with optimistic growth projections of roughly 3% a year.

Never mind that he recently signed into law two deficit-increasing bills. The federal tax overhaul plus a two-year increase in spending caps will push the country to start running $1 trillion-plus annual deficits next year.

“The depth of the budgetary hole that has been dug over the past year is made clear by the fact that the administration could not produce a balanced budget even with unrealistic growth assumptions and scoring gimmicks,” said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan fiscal watchdog.

    Finally, oil prices pushed higher Wednesday thanks to a dip in exports out of Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. As we’ve noted, the Saudi government is looking to press crude prices higher by reducing OPEC output and limiting shipments to Asia. Those cuts come as economic sanctions continue to weigh on the Venezuelan oil market. The United States imported 500,000 barrels of Venezuelan crude in November 2018, but sanctions will dry up that flow of oil to the United States. With oil prices set to rise in the coming months, we’ve identified the top energy stock to buy in March. Best of all, it’s under $10 per share.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery – we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations – and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Invest In Right Now

More than two years after a government crackdown on corruption sent Macau gaming stocks tumbling, The Chinese government has unveiled yet another new regulation on the Macau gaming industry that has hit gaming stocks hard. The latest new law cut the daily ATM withdrawal limit in Macau from 10,000 patacas to 5,000 patacas, or roughly $626.

Unfortunately, transparency and predictability has never been one of the Chinese government’s strong points. Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ: WYNN) CEO Steve Wynn said the government’s behavior was “preposterous” when it kept operators in the dark about how many table games they would be allotted just weeks prior to opening billion-dollar new resorts. For the record, none of the major operators that have opened resorts in the past two years have received the table allotment they requested.

Although the U.S. gaming market likely doesn’t have the kind of long-term growth potential that Macau does, U.S. casinos are doing just fine these days. In the current fiscal year, Las Vegas Strip revenue is trending about 6% ahead of last year, and other regions of the country are doing even better. For better or worse, U.S. stock investors likely won’t have to worry about new regulations in the next four years under President-elect Trump.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

Growth versus value investing is one of the major debates in the investment world.  Growth stocks seem to have outperformed their value counterparts over the past few years. But the winning streak of growth investing took a hit this year with value stocks regaining lost glory.

It is currently speculated that value investing will likely continue its winning run in the upcoming years. Hence, adding potential stocks to one’s portfolio might prove to be an ideal option in the current scenario.

Value vs. Growth Investing: Long-Drawn Debate

Value investors seek to invest in stocks that are believed to be trading at a discounted value. Investors look for favorable value ratios including low price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-book value (P/B) ratios to identify potential value stocks. While a significant number of these stocks are also expected to come with solid dividend payments, these stocks are also expected to moderate growth prospects.
