Best China Stocks To Invest In 2019

No one likes trade wars but U.S. President Donald Trump is starting to win some grudging support among European and global business elites as he moves to put China’s trade practices in the spotlight.

Investors and economists attending the annual Ambrosetti Spring workshop along the shores of Italy’s Lake Como voiced concern about protectionist saber-rattling between the U.S. and China. Yet several admitted that some of Trump’s complaints about unfair competition from China ring true.

“Import tariffs on cars are 2.5 percent in the U.S., 10 percent in Europe, 25 percent in China. So who’s the true manipulator here?” Davide Serra, chief executive officer of Algebris Investments, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “If China wants to be the adult in the room, it needs to behave like an adult.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    In recent years, investors have become increasingly fearful about the so-called “death of the mall.” As a result, shares of top-tier mall REITs like Taubman Centers (NYSE:TCO), Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG), GGP (NYSE:GGP), and Macerich (NYSE:MAC) have tended to trade at a discount to their net asset values (NAV), the underlying value of their assets.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Shares of mall-focused REIT GGP (NYSE:GGP) have plunged in 2018. Initially, the stock price fell due to ongoing worries about the so-called “retail apocalypse” and its effect on mall occupancy and lease rates.

Best Medical Stocks To Own For 2018

The staffing industry – and the IT staffing industry in particular – is poised for tremendous growth in the foreseeable future, and that rising tide bodes very well for Staffing 360 Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:STAF).

For those who’ve followed the sociopolitical rhetoric it would be easy to conclude what job growth we’ve seen in the past few years has been measly, made even less impressive by the fact most of the new jobs have been less-than-great-career types of jobs. And to be fair, there’s a kernel of truth in what the critics are saying. A closer inspection is merited though, because a closer look clarifies that some industries are seeing tremendous job growth. One of the hottest hot spots? You guessed it … IT jobs.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, software and developer positions will grow by 19% between 2014 and 2024, making it one of the nation’s fastest-growing non-medical career choices. When you broaden the data out to “computer and mathematical occupations”, the ten-year growth projection is 13.1%, which IS the second-highest growth pace among all jobs (second only to healthcare).

    I think one of the strangest business dichotomies of the last five years has been the absolute failure of GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) as a public company compared to the growing success of Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN). The companies should have a lot of similarities because both serve niche markets of avid athletes and provide a unique perspective on sports action that others can’t match. GoPro does that with images that capture unique action shots, while Garmin provides GPS and other real-time data to athletes on watches or handheld systems.Heck, they almost have the same distribution model, with similar-looking kiosks in retainers.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2018

The U.S. Commerce Department backed Boeing in its challenge to Bombardier, recommending an enormous tariff on sales of Bombardier’s C Series jetliner, a major blow to the Canadian plane maker.

The initial ruling by the International Trade Commission, an arm of the Commerce Department, recommends a 219.63% tariff on the delivery of each airliner, according to a person briefed on the ITC’s findings.

Boeing (BA), America’s largest exporter and sole U.S. producer of commercial airliners, is suing Bombardier. At issue is whether Bombardier received financial backing from the Canadian government that allowed the plane maker to stay afloat and sell to Delta for what Boeing alleges were “absurdly low prices.”

“The U.S. values its relationships with Canada, but even our closest allies must play by the rules,” said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in a statement. “The subsidization of goods by foreign governments is something that the Trump Administration takes very seriously, and we will continue to evaluate and verify the accuracy of this preliminary determination.”

    Through an alliance and investment in Nissan in 1999 Renault currently holds 43% of Japanese car manufacturer Nissan. Since 1999 Nissan has performed well and currently Nissan is worth $43B. Nissan is attractively valued with a P/E of 6.9 a P/B of 0.92 and P/S of 0.41 and a dividend yield of 4.2%. Renault’s stake of 43% in Nissan is worth ($43*0.43=) $18.5B. This means that the other operations of Renault including its 73.3% stake in leading Russian car manufacturer AutoVaz and 1.55% stake in Daimler are valued at only $8.5B. The market value of AutoVaz is $644M which means Renaults stake is worth approximately $472M. Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF) is worth $77.4B which leads to a value of 1.2B for the 1.55% piece owned by Renault.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that, “Daimler plans to unveil an electric concept car at (next month’s) Paris Auto show. Leaks suggest this will be accompanied by bullish plans to release at least six electric cars”. Of course, Daimler is already quite advanced in EVs with its partnership in China with BYD. As I write this, the Paris Auto show has begun, where “Daimler Mercedes-Benz unveiled a battery-powered sport-utility vehicle, a direct competitor to Tesla’s Model X, which will have a range of 310 miles on a single charge and is slated to launch in 2020. The vehicle will be part of a new sub-brand of Mercedes called EQ”.

    Barrington Research’s Alexander Paris andChris Howe write that “early tax season results [are] encouraging” for H&R Block. They explain why:

    Managements long-term goal is to grow clients in both the Assisted and DDIY categories. While it will not grow clients in tax season 2017, management expects to significantly reduce client losses. Its approach to tax season 2017 includes changes in all customer facing areas of the business, including its sales and service model, promotion pricing and products (its Refund Advance product, free federal 1040EZ in its offices and free federal 1040EZ/1040A and state filing DDIY offering), and marketing. Through the first half of the tax season, H&R Blocks client volumes have improved and the company is achieving share gains in both the Assisted and DDIY categories. In total, the IRS reported a decline in e-files of 10% through February 24 compared to HRBs decline of 7%. In the Assisted category, HRB outperformed the industry with a decline of 8% compared to the IRS reported decline of 13%. In the DDIY category, HRB outperformed the industry with a decline of 5% compared to the IRS reported decline of 8%. While overall industry and HRB volume is expected to improve in the second half of the tax season, HRBs performance relative to the industry is expected to moderate as its Free Federal 1040EZ and Refund Advance promotions ended February 28.

    H&R Block’s market capitalization rose to $5 billion today from $4.3 billion yesterday.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    When an investor thinks of Canadian gold mining stocks, NovaGold Resources Inc. (USA) (NYSEMKT:NG) and Yamana Gold Inc. (USA) (NYSE:AUY) are often the first names to come to mind. And well they should. Yamana Gold is a $2.5 billion giant, and NovaGold Resources seems to have been around forever.

    Those two icons aren’t the only way to tap into Canada’s sizeable gold mining industry though. There’s a small, up-and-coming player called Taranis Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS:TNREF, TSX:TRO) that could end up becoming another key fixture of the country’s mining landscape.

    Taranis develops mineral deposits into mine-ready projects. Its primary project right now — and it’s enough to keep the company plenty busy for the next several years — is the Thor property located near Trout Lake, British Columbia. NI 43-101 resource reports (indicated and inferred)suggest Thor contains 6.9 million ounces of silver, 35,000 ounces gold, 57 million pounds of lead, 79.4 million pounds of zinc and 3.3 Million pounds of copper (roughly a 14 million ounce silver equivalent (“AgEq”) deposit*) laying in wait in a way that lends itself to the establishment of a low-cost, open pit mining operation. That’s roughly $300 million worth of marketable metals, and the estimates have been steadily getting bigger as Tanaris does more survey work.

    And 2017 could be a real breakout year for Taranis, as a lot of the work that’s been done to date starts to mean something. It’s got big exploration plans for this year… this spring/summer to be exact.

    The Phase 1 program was completed in September of last year, setting the stage for a more defined and much bigger Phase 2 definition-drilling within the next several weeks. This Phase 2 definition drilling slated for the middle of this year will drill down to between 6000 m and 10,000 m.

The year just ended was a happier one for energy investors than the one prior. Despite a volatile ride, oil prices managed to recover from February lows and ended the year at a high.

The year-end rally was spurred by Donald Trump’s surprise election victory and the market’s subsequent anticipation of accelerated economic growth and hence increased oil demand. The rally was given a further boost by OPEC’s Nov. 30 announcement of an agreement to cut production starting in 2017. This was followed by a Dec. 10 announcement of further production cuts from Saudi Arabia and non-OPEC producers, including Russia.

So after this solid finish to 2016, what should we expect oil in 2017?

I expect oil prices to continue to trade in a $45-$60 (figures in U.S. dollars) range this year. They have had a solid rally but there are a number of obstacles to overcome for prices to sustain current levels, let alone increase from here. The main ones are the OPEC agreement itself and the threat of increased U.S. production. Let’s look at the supply/demand situation in detail.
