    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) has come a long way in a few short years. After an amazing start in pioneering the specialty athletic apparel business with its emphasis on yoga, Lululemon looked like it gave all of its promise away when it succumbed to quality control problems. The recovery has been long and difficult, but now, Lululemon is finding new ways to move forward, and its efforts have paid off with soaring share prices and new record highs for the stock.

  • [By John Ballard]

    Shares of lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) surged to new all-time highs after another monster earnings report at the end of August. Revenue climbed 25% year over year, fueled by strong comparable-store sales of 10% and online sales growth of 48%. This is a massive acceleration over the year-ago quarter’s performance of 13% growth in sales. 

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) is a relatively minor player in the athletic apparel industry, but that could change over the next decade or so. The retailer is enjoying surging demand for its yoga-inspired product lines and has hiked its 2018 outlook in each of the last two quarterly reports. Revenue for the most recent period jumped 25% to $725 million thanks to robust customer traffic in both its physical stores and its online sales channel.

    It’s hard to blame people for feeling like retail earnings go on and on, but the end of the road is in sight. Today’s earnings from Foot Locker (FL) mean we’re almost there, but that doesn’t mean investors can necessarily take their eyes off the road. For instance, Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ: COST) and lululemon Athletica Inc. (NASDAQ: LULU) are both scheduled to report next week, marking two more chances to get a sense of how consumers are doing. So far, they seem to be faring pretty well, if you look at the majority of retailers reporting this quarter and April retail sales. Consumer discretionary was one of the few sectors to post gains Thursday. One question, however, is if the rise in gas prices to $3 a gallon this spring might put a brake on consumer spending.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

Photographer: Saul Martinez/Bloomberg

A strategic mistake made six years ago by celebrity CEO Ron Johnson continues to haunt popular retailer JC Penney, as evidenced by the ongoing sluggish sales growth and store closings that have made the company smaller—a fraction of what it once  was.

Meanwhile, investors have been bailing out from the company’s stock, which trades in the middle single digits — a long way from the upper 30s, where it was trading back in 2012. 

JC Penney’s woes began with a change in the retailer’s pricing strategy –replacement of coupon sales with everyday low prices.

The old pricing strategy has been popular among retailers, because it hypes shoppers, making them feel smart and encouraging them to talk with other consumers about it. That’s how hype and buzz for merchandise begins and spreads in the shopper community.

Hot Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

Humana (HUM) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after the Republican Congress put forward a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

S. MARTIN/AFP/Getty Images

Humana gained 2.4% to $217.76 today, while the S&P 500 dropped 0.3% to 2,368.38.

Why was Humana the best performing stock in the S&P 500? Beats the heck out of me, since what a final plan will look like is still up in the air. Strategas Research Partners’ Daniel Clifton and team explain:

Handwringing about what this bill achieves or not is at a fevered pitch this morning. Our guess is that the final legislation will look quite different than the original draft as was the case eight years ago when the Democrats released their ACA draft and spent the next 12 months fighting over the details. There is a wide chasm of views between conservative House Republicans and moderate Republican Senators. Support is going to be needed from each group to win passage. The most logical complaint is that this is one entitlement program being replaced with another. But how ironic would it be if the Tea Party, which came to fruition in response to the ACA, actually becomes the barrier to reforming the law. Supporters of the ACA and investors in healthcare service companies will be focused on the number of covered lives. There is no doubt that a reformed Medicaid system (to get costs down) and less generous tax credits will lead to fewer covered lives. How much of a difference will be open to interpretation as policymakers await the CBO score.
