    The bull case for shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls (NYSE:HII) is centered in no small part on the company’s place as the sole builder and maintainer of the nation’s fleet of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. A reported shift in Navy thinking over the need for a massive carrier fleet could challenge Huntington’s growth expectations, though it’s too soon for investors to react to the speculation.

Top Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Las Vegas Sands Corp.(LVS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    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.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TWTR, CS, GE
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) is under pressure to fire its auditor of 109 years, KPMG (for perspective, GE began its longtime relationship with KPMG a year after the first Model-T was built). Shareholder rights firms Glass-Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services are spearheading the change and will push for adjustments during the firm’s annual shareholder meeting. The move comes after a calamitous year for GE, which saw the company become the worst-performing Dow component of 2017.
    Twitter Inc. (NYSE TWTR) will lead a very busy day of earnings reports. The social media giant is expected to report EPS of $0.12 on top of $609.8 million in revenue.

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

I haven’t purchased life insurance in roughly seven years.

Don’t get me wrong, I have life insurance, but I haven’t purchased any additional life insurance, with the exception of the group plan I set up for my company, since my wife was pregnant with our second child.

And up until this week, I’ve enjoyed the peace of mind that comes with purchasing the right amount of life insurance to protect the financial interests of my family in the event of my death. 

I have no idea why, but this week I decided to take a closer look at this part of my financial plan. And, at the risk of filling up my inbox with emails from every insurance agent in America, I’m pretty sure I need more life insurance.

Hot Safest Stocks To Own For 2019

Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model 3 had already earned a coveted five-star rating, including a five-star rating in every subcategory, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). But over the weekend, the electric-car maker announced a more formidable achievement for its latest vehicle: It has a lower probability of injury than any other vehicle ever tested by the NHTSA. 

The news adds to Tesla’s impressive track record with safety tests, including top NHTSA rankings for Tesla’s Model S and Model X. In fact, an argument could be made that the Model 3 might be one of the safest vehicles on the road.

Tesla’s Model 3. Image source: Tesla.

Tesla’s impressive safety ratings

The Model 3’s probability of significant degree of injury during a serious crash is below 6%, according to new data from the NHTSA. This is below the probability rating for the Model S (over 6%) and the Model X (closer to 7%). All three of the models Tesla is selling, therefore, are the safest vehicles on the road based on the NHTSA’s data — and the Model 3 is pushing safety design to new levels.

Best Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018

Germany’s largest lender Deutsche Bank and Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse have agreed to pay a collective $12.5 billion to settle litigation stemming from their bundling of risky subprime and Alt-a mortgages during the mid-2000s credit bubble, which resulted in a severe housing collapse, billions of dollars of investor losses and widespread claims of deception.

The agreements, struck just before a new administration takes the White House, adds resolution to the Obama administrations efforts to hold Wall Street’s largest banks accountable for their activities during the bubble and bust of the U.S. housing market. To date, large lenders in the United States and Europe have agreed to fork over nearly $50 billion in fines and consumer relief to the U.S. government to settle claims of wrongdoing.
