Top 10 High Tech Stocks For 2019

If there’s one thing Americans are unfortunately good at, it’s racking up debt, and new data from Northwestern Mutual further drives home this point. Specifically, the average level of personal debt, not including mortgages, climbed to $38,000 this year, which represents an almost $1,000 increase from 2017.

Here’s another troubling statistic: A good 20% of Americans allocate anywhere from 50% to 100% of their income to repaying debt, while 13% are convinced they’ll be in debt for the rest of their lives.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks For 2019: American Airlines Group, Inc.(AAL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    It can’t be fun to be American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) CEO Doug Parker right now. His company has experienced massive nonfuel cost increases over the past few years. Now that the carrier is finally reining in controllable costs, fuel prices have surged, creating a new headache. Meanwhile, American has the weakest balance sheet of any major U.S. airline.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL) traded down about 1.5% Tuesday to post a new 52-week low of $36.77 after closing Monday at $38.36. The stock’s 52-week high is $59.08. Volume was about 15% below the daily average of around 6.2 million shares. The company had no specific news.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The S&P 500 stock posting the largest daily percentage loss ahead of the close Tuesday was American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL) which traded down about 4.5% at $47.57. The stock’s 52-week range is $42.01 to $59.08. Volume was nearly 13 million compared to the daily average volume of nearly 5 million.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Not surprisingly, the airlines with the lowest profit margins have been hit hardest. These carriers are the most vulnerable to fuel price increases and demand shocks, as small changes in their profit margins can severely impact their earnings. During the past year, American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) has fallen into the bottom echelon of U.S. airlines in terms of profitability, and so its share price tumbled 7.5% in the first three days of this week.

Top Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Cyndee Weston can barely remember the last time she didn’t have to switch health plans during an Affordable Care Act sign-up season. By her count, she has been on five plans in five years.

Every fall, after she has spent months figuring out her insurance plan’s deductibles, doctor networks, list of covered drugs and other fine print, she receives notice that the policy will be canceled as of Dec. 31.

Because her job doesn’t come with insurance, “it’s agonizing going through all the plans and trying to compare,” said Weston, 55, who has diabetes and a history of melanoma. “Every year it’s the same scenario: ‘We’re not going to renew your policy.'”

Under the market-based system set up by the ACA, individuals are encouraged to “shop around” each year to find insurance that better suits their medical needs and income. In fact like Weston, a trade association executive in Sulphur, Okla. they are often forced to do so when plans drop out of the local market or eliminate preferred hospitals and doctors from the network.

    The stock market jumped on Wednesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing up by triple digits and other major benchmarks following suit with similar-sized gains. Attention once again focused on the oil market, where prices rebounded to climb to new multiyear highs above $71 per barrel. Investors seem to see oil’s strength as indicating stronger levels of economic activity, choosing not to fear any adverse pressure on prices that could result from higher costs for consumers and businesses that rely on energy products. Good news from several individual companies also helped keep sentiment positive. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ:AAXN), TripAdvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP), and iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
