Top 5 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear accord and impose sanctions on that nation also risks fallout for the U.S. economy.

The U.S. move may lead to “gradually and modestly reduced oil production” by Iran, the world’s fifth largest producer, that would further push up global oil prices, according to a research note Tuesday by Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics. If West Texas Intermediate crude oil prices average $70 a barrel this year, that would amount to a drag on growth worth half of the 0.7 percentage-point boost from tax cuts and a government-spending increase, Daco wrote.

With gasoline prices already squeezing consumers’ pocketbooks, the possibility of extended pain at the pump casts a shadow on widespread expectations that U.S. household spending is poised for a rebound in coming months driven by tax cuts. At the same time, energy-producing businesses and regions within the U.S. would benefit from higher oil prices.

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” -Seneca

Author’s Note: A more detailed research recommendation report on this sector will appear in our SA Marketplace site The House Edge after oral arguments are heard.

Two weeks from now, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the landmark case: Christie vs. Professional & Amateur Sports Protection Act (1992) asserting that it, among other injustices, is an undue incursion of the sovereign right of states to legalize wagering on sports. The case springs from a lawsuit by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Although online casino play is already legal in that state, sports betting is not. Through a succession of lower court rulings that cited the federal statute, Christie has taken the fight to the nation’s highest court. The outcome of that ruling, to come sometime this year, could trigger a bonanza for companies already in the online wagering sector. The American Gaming Association has issued an amicus curiae brief to the court favoring legal sports betting citing its estimate that it represents $150 in annual revenue to illegal bookmakers, much of which is diverted to finance organized criminal enterprises.

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

Sports and stocks go hand in hand.

Wall Street denizens often talk about slam dunk investments and describe the economic cycle as being in a particular inning.

So it makes perfect sense that there’s an ETF dedicated to the business of sports.

The ProSports Sponsors exchange-traded fund, which has the ticker symbol FANZ (FANZ), invests in companies that have business deals with the four major US team sports leagues.

Nick Fullerton, CEO of SportsETFs, the company behind the fund, said it was set up last year to take advantage of the popularity of team sports, which bring in big dollars.

Legal gambling, which is set to spread across the United States, could boost that popularity even more.

Fullerton was quick to point out that the companies in the FANZ ETF must have an actual sponsorship with a major league, and not just a naming rights deal on a stadium.

No CMGIs or Enrons here.

“These are blue chip companies with strong balance sheets and cash flow,” Fullerton said.

    Cryptocurrency mining is no longer the leading theme in AMD’s analyst reports. Instead, Wall Street’s finest are focusing on AMD’s solid Ryzen and EPYC brands taking market share from Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) in both the server systems and gaming rig markets. On top of AMD’s sharp execution in recent quarters, Intel appears to have fumbled the manufacturing technology lead to the point where AMD can lean on foundry partner Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE:TSM) to deliver seven-nanometer chip architectures while Intel’s in-house manufacturing lines are stuck at 10 nm.

    The capex budget – In January, Intel set a 2018 capital spending budget of $13.5 billion to $14.5 billion, which was easily above 2017 capex of $11.8 billion. Will the budget be tweaked? Last week, Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM) , the world’s biggest chip foundry, upped its 2018 capex budget by $1 billion to a range of $11.5 billion to $12 billion.

    Prothena Corporation plc (NASDAQ: PRTA) shares dropped 69 percent to $11.43 after a disappointing update relating to the company's treatment for AL amyloidosis. Prothena, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that focuses on therapies in the neuroscience and orphan categories, said a Phase 2b study of its therapy called NEOD001 failed to achieve its primary or secondary endpoints. Prothena's Phase 2b study explored its NEOD001 therapy versus a placebo in previously-treated patients with AL amyloidosis and persistent cardiac dysfunction. Unfortunately, there were no statistically significant difference between the two treatment groups.

    Creating a treatment for a rare disease or rare disorder can come with massive upside if the treatment is successful. That said, the risk is that a company can implode if its rare disease treatment fails in a drug study.

To borrow a phrase from Prince, in 2018 investors are partying like it&s;s 1999.

Prince&a;nbsp;released his song about celebrating before the millennium in &l;a href=&q;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rblt2EtFfC4&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;October 1982&l;/a&g;. So he did not realize that stocks would enjoy a big surge in 1999 — that was the year the &l;a href=&q;http://money.cnn.com/1999/12/31/markets/markets_newyork/&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;NASDAQ soared 85.6%&l;/a&g; –&a;nbsp;before collapsing in 2000.

For those who don&s;t believe they can wait another&a;nbsp;eight years for the next market peak, this is a great time to sell.
