Top 10 Financial Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Citigroup (C) topped expectations when it unveiled quarterly financial results today, as did PNC Financial Services Group (PNC) and U.S. Bancorp (USB). Yet Wall Street is punishing bank stocks today.

What gives?

A slew of big financial firms posted earnings today, on the heels of the strong results released yesterday by J.P. Morgan (JPM). Yet the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) fell 0.5% in recent market action. Wells Fargo (WFC) led the charge, falling 2.9% after the company said second quarter profit fell and revenue missed expectations as low interest rates continued to weigh on results.

As for Citigroup, while profit and revenue beat expectations, the banks top line fell 10%. And according to Morningstar analyst Jim Sinegal investors are disappointing that banks have yet to start firing on all cylinders.

There were no big negatives in the quarter, but investors have been looking for banks to fire on all cylinders for a number of years. They want good credit performance and good revenue performance and not much in the way of unusual expenseOn the revenue front, low interest rates are still an overhang.

    BMO’s Charles Sebaski explains why he upgraded American International Group (AIG) to Outperform from market Perform:

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    AIG has been trading at discount to its tangible book given its mid-single digit return profile; however, we expect AIGs valuation to keep increasing with its improving return profile. We are now forecasting AIG to generate a 9.9% operating return on tangible common equity (ROtE) in 2018, which would be a 450 bp improvement from 2016. A double-digit return profile warrants the 1x multiple that we are applying to its tangible book value per share. While we expect AIGs return profile to benefit from lower taxes, we also expect the companys life and retirement business to improve from the rising interest rates as those spread businesses are more interest rate sensitive than the P&C business. That said, we expect continued improvement on both the loss and expense sides of the P&C as contributing factors to the ROtE improve.

    BMO also upgraded Arch Capital Group (ACGL), Brown & Brown (BRO), and Travelers (TRV).

    Shares of American International Group have declined 0.4% to $65.60 at 3:36 p.m. today, whileArch Capital Group has gained 2% to $87.90,Brown & Brown has advanced 0.5% to $44.65, andTravelers has risen 1.3% to $120.79.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was yet another record-setting day for the stock market, as the Dow climbed triple digits and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite followed the venerable average to unprecedented heights. Economic data showing rising inflation made it more likely that the Federal Reserve will look to boost interest rates at its next Federal Open Market Committee meeting next month, and the ripples throughout the bond market sent many investors to consider stocks instead. Yet despite the substantial rally, some stocks missed out on the move higher, and American International Group (NYSE:AIG), Teck Resources (NYSE:TECK), and Movado Group (NYSE:MOV) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    American International Group (AIG) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after its earnings fell well short of the Street consensus.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    AIG dropped 8.9% to $60.85 today, while the S&P 500 gained 0.5% to 2,349.25.

    Yes, AIG’s earnings were bad. It reported an operating loss of $2.72 a share, missing forecasts for a profit of 42 cents, according to Bloomberg. And it didn’t help that John Paulson’s Paulson & Co. cut its stake in the insurer.

    You’ll notice the forecast is different than what it was in my earlier post on AIG–and an AIG spokesperson even reached out to tell me that the consensus, at least according to FactSet, should had been for a loss of 61 cents a share. Why the confusion? RBC’s Mark Dwelle and Scott Heleniak have your answer:

    In reporting results AIG has recast all of its business segments, transferring various pieces to a Legacy unit, reallocating corporate expenses and net investment income as well as making some changes as to what is included within operating income, the most notable of which is that loss reserve discount effects in U.S. Commercial Insurance (and the Legacy unit) are now excluded from Operating Income. Accordingly, comparisons to prior reported results, and to some extent our 4Q16 estimates, require some reconciliation.

    Macquarie’sAmit Kumar considers the bull and bear cases on AIG:

    On 2/14, after market close, AIG reported a Q4 operating loss of $2.72 per share vs. our estimate of a $0.52 loss and street consensus of a $0.54 loss. Results are not directly comparable to street consensus due to lack of unanimity in terms of reserve adjustment estimates. Results included a higher than estimated $5.6 billion or $3.56/share of adverse development. The company had previously announced the possibility of a material reserve charge in the quarter. The bulls on the stock would note that this quar

Top 10 Financial Stocks To Invest In 2018

President Trump sounds like he’s picking a fight with Japan over trade. That could make for tricky talks about a hugely important relationship when he meets Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The U.S. and Japan account for nearly a third of the global economy. Trade in goods and services between the world’s No.1 and No.3 economies was worth nearly $268 billion in 2015.

The U.S. emerged from the financial crisis with a healthier economy than Japan, which has struggled for years with weak growth and falling prices. But in Trump’s view of international trade — where winners have surpluses and losers have deficits — Tokyo is beating Washington.

Japan’s surplus in goods traded with the U.S. stood at $69 billion last year. Put another way, Japan is now second only to China in contributing to the U.S. trade deficit.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Jefferies announced on Wednesday that it has cut its rating on Tanger Factory Outlet Centers Inc. (SKT).

    The firm has downgraded SKT from “Buy” to “Hold,” and has lowered the company’s price target from $40 to $35. This price target suggests an 8% upside from the stock’s current price of $32.22.

    Analyst Omotayo Okusanya commented: “We expect near-term headwinds for the mall and outlet mall segment as tenant sales growth appears to be slowing.”

    “At SKT, development yields on two projects have also been reduced. Further, rising interest rates negatively impact our DDM-derived PT. Our lowered PT of $35 represents a 10% total return over the next-twelve-months (NTM); we are downgrading to Hold,” added the analyst.

As the health care debate proceeds, the thing that strikes me most is the complexity of our current system.

  • [By Darren Williams] Although the entire cannabis space has quietly taken a hit of their own medicine in recent weeks and gone to sleep, don’t think for one second the entire space isn’t going to light up again soon. That’s just what they do, right? However, knowing who the pretenders are and knowing who the contenders are is really the challenge when it’s comes right down to it.
    First, anyone who claims to be a grower or a seller of cannabis can’t for one second ever make it as a public company right now, or can even legally consider being a public company for that matter, so you can scratch any of those right off your list. At least here in the U.S. anyway, because Canada is already well ahead of the curve having legalized it for medicinal purposes already.
    More importantly, full legalization of marijuana in Canada appears to be on track for July 2018, which will make Canada just the second nation in the world after Uruguay to completely legalize the cultivation, sale and possession of the drug for medical and recreational purposes.
    Regardless, the best time to buy any stocks in a hot growth sector is when either everyone has forgotten about them, or when the overall market landscape has turned bearish, which has yet to happen. However, the former seems to be the case for the cannabis space, despite some very favorable state legislation last Fall.
    For now, as long as you have a license issued by Health Canada, you’re good to go, so there are some stocks trading in Canada already who are well on their way to making some green for investors.

CAPE CORAL, Fla. A company that makes artificial limbs offered to help a Florida woman who lost both of her legs as she tried to help a crash victim on Interstate 75.

Hagmann, who has no medical insurance, remains in the intensive care unit at Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, Fla., after having one leg amputated just above the knee and the other at mid-thigh.

Hagmann witnessed a one-car crash along I-75 during a heavy rainstorm early Sundayas she was returning from an outing with a former high school classmate.

While she was helping the crashed motorist, the driver of another car was unable to swerve away from the damaged car partially in the road’s right lane, pinning Hagmann’s legs between the car and the guardrail.
