stock market history

We all know financial stocks have gone through the roof since President Trump’s win. So the question becomes: what do we do with these companies now?

There’s no one answer for every financial stock, of course.

Some are still great, undervalued buys—but there are two that have gotten grossly overvalued and should be avoided, or sold if you hold them. (Below, I’ll reveal 3 better high-yield stocks to buy instead.)

These 2 Financials Are Headed for Trouble

Bank of America Corp (BAC) is the first bank on my hit list.

A Breathtaking Rise

After spending most of 2016 in the red, BAC has soared more than 37% in three months. Nothing much has changed at the bank; it’s just riding a wave of euphoria as investors bet that Trump’s America will mean higher interest rates and fewer regulations, driving up BAC’s earnings.

stock market history: LinkedIn Corporation(LNKD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Andres Cardenal]

    The most powerful investment ideas are the ones that can be easily explained and understood. LinkedIn(LNKD) is an undisputed market leader in remarkably promising areas such as professional networking and online employment opportunities, and this makes the company a top name to buy in 2016 and hold for years to come.

    As of the third quarter of 2015, LinkedIn(LNKD) had 396 million registered members around the world, a big increase of 20% versus the same quarter the previous year, and 39,726 corporate solutions customers on the platform, a year-over-year increase of 31%. Individuals and corporations attract each other to LinkedIn in search of opportunities, and this creates a virtuous cycle driving sustainable growth over the long term.

    Management is also translating the company’s massive opportunities into rapid revenue growth. Total sales grew 37% to $780 million last quarter, with the acquisition of online learning platform lynda.com representing $41 million of that. LinkedIn’s three growth engines are firing on all cylinders: Talent solutions for corporations grew 46%, while premium subscription sales increased 21%, and online advertising revenue jumped 28%.

    LinkedIn(LNKD) is actively investing for growth, so profit margins are hard to predict in the short term. However, the company should be able to combine solid revenue growth and expanding profit margins in the years ahead.

  • [By Alex McGuire]

    For example, LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE: LNKD) fell 16.1% to $79.03 from its IPO date on May 19, 2011, to Aug. 19, 2011. But LNKD stock has since recovered 148% to today’s share price of $195.96.

stock market history: McEwen Mining Inc.(MUX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market lost more ground on Friday, but major market benchmarks still managed to post healthy gains as 2016 drew to a close. Double-digit percentage gains for the year continued the bull market, and investors generally enjoyed positive momentum despite the sluggish levels of trading activity during the inter-holiday week. Nevertheless, some stocks suffered more precipitous declines, and U.S. Steel (NYSE:X), EnteroMedics (NASDAQ:ETRM), and McEwen Mining (NYSE:MUX) were among the worst performers on the last trading day of the year. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

stock market chart

Bookseller Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS) posted its highest-ever stock price at above $45 a share in March of 2006. By March of 2011 it had dropped below $9 a share, and it posted a new all-time low of $7.25 in February of last year.

B&N reported Thursday that same-store sales for the nine-week holiday period ended December 31 plunged 9% year over year. Online sales rose 2% in the same period.

The company blamed the decline on lower foot traffic, as well as a drop in sales of coloring books and artist’s supplies, both big sellers in the 2015 holiday season. Last year’s release of Adele’s “25” CD also boosted B&N’s 2015 sales. Combined, these items accounted for about a third of the store’s sales drop.

While CEO Leonard Riggio told The Wall Street Journal that the decline in store traffic was an issue for “almost every major retailer” this year, that does not excuse him or his management team for being ineffective. Riggio made our list of 2016’s worst CEOs for a reason.

stock market data

Silicon Valley has been roiled again by claims of sexism and the harassment of women.

On Friday, venture capital investor Justin Caldbeck said he was taking an indefinite leave of absence from his firm after he was accused of sexually harassing women who work in tech.

“The gap of influence between male venture capitalists and female entrepreneurs is frightening and I hate that my behavior played a role in perpetrating a gender-hostile environment,” Caldbeck wrote in a statement released by Binary Capital, the firm he cofounded in 2014.

Reed Albergotti of tech news site The Information reported on Thursday that six female founders had come forward with stories about unwanted advances by Caldbeck. Their claims included groping and late-night texts.

Caldbeck, 40, was quoted in the story strongly denying the claims, calling them “attacks on my character.” Binary Capital was also quoted saying the allegations were false. “There is no evidence that Justin did anything illegal,” the firm said.

stock market data: CytRx Corporation(CYTR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another under-$10 biotechnology player that’s starting to trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade is CytRx (CYTR), which has an oncology pipeline that includes two programs in clinical development for cancer indications: aldoxorubicin and tamibarotene. This stock has been moving to the upside during the last three months, with shares up by 21%.

    If you take a look at the chart for CytRx, you’ll notice that this stock has been trending sideways inside of a consolidation chart pattern for the last two months, with shares moving between $2.27 on the downside and $2.68 on the upside. That consolidation pattern has occurred right above this stock’s 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Shares of CYTR have now started to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $2.49 a share. That move is quickly pushing CYTR within range of triggering an even bigger breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern.

    Market players should now look for long-biased trades in CYTR if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.68 to $2.80 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 154,838 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CYTR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.20 to $4 a share.

    Traders can look to buy CYTR off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 200-day at $2.33 a share or below more support at $2.27 a share. One can also buy CYTR off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

    3. Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B): Last, it would be a shame to overlook the conglomerate built by the world’s greatest investor himself, Warren Buffett. Under the Berkshire Hathaway name, Buffett has built up a portfolio of enduring subsidiaries and stock holdings poised to stand the test of time. Under Berkshire’s ownership are built-to-last subsidiaries like Geico, Duracell, and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. And some of Berkshire’s largest stock holdings include iconic businesses like Coca-Cola, American Express, and Wells Fargo.
