Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

Stocks couldnt shake off early losses and all three major indexes ended lower on Thursday.

Bloomberg News

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 210.79 points, or 1.17%, to 17830.76. The S&P 500 Index fell 19.34 points, or 0.92%, to 2075.81. The Nasdaq slid 57.85 points, or 1.19%, to 4805.29.

Blue chips were dragged down by Apple(AAPL): Just days after its disappointing earnings, billionaire Carl Icahn said he no longer has a stake in the stock.

From a data standpoint, First quarter gross domestic product grew 0.5%, below economists expectations, overshadowing an upbeat jobs report that saw unemployment fall to a four-decade low.

Stifels Lindsey Piegza writes that this could push out any interest rate hikes:

From a policy standpoint, should the U.S. economy post meaningful improvement between now and June, assuming the Feds concerns surrounding international risks are not reignited, policy makers appear well positioned to announce the second rate hike in less than two months time. Of course, following this mornings disappointing GDP report, its difficult to imagine a marked improvement in the economy over the next two months. More likely, the combination of stagnant economic conditions, a still-restrained consumer, and ongoing concerns regarding risks of contagion from developments abroad whether directly identified in the statement or not will make it increasingly difficult for the Fed to raise rates once in the remaining nine months of 2016, if at all.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now: Green Brick Partners, Inc.(GRBK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedgoing long on small cap homebuilder stockGreen Brick Partners (NASDAQ: GRBK):

    For Green Brick Partners, we’re mainly feeding off of the hammer-shaped reversal bar from last week. That long-tailed low only had to kiss the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.45 to kick-start a reversal, and we’ve seen some nice bullish follow-through so far. Ideally we’d like to see a move above the February ceiling around $9.90, but we fear waiting that long could leave us chasing it higher. See, what you can’t see on the chart (because it’s further back) is that GRBK is no stranger to multi-point runups. Based on its past runs, Green Brick Partners could be in the high teens before you even know it.

Top Bank Stocks For 2018

Mutual funds and exchange-traded funds focusing on U.S. debt have added $9.86 billion week, the most since February 2015, according to data from Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Investor money has been flowing into high-grade corporate bonds, which took in $4.9 billion. Meanwhile, stocks posted $360 million of outflows for the week ending June 7.

Some market strategists have argued that investors shouldnt invest in bonds because they are overvalued, with yields, which move inversely to prices, ultimately headed higher. After all, the Federal Reserve remains intent on normalizing monetary policy and the tightest labor markets since 1988 is expected to spark inflation, which these strategists say should combine to erode appetite for fixed-income instruments.

It sounds crazy, but you can know too much about a stock.   This is hard for people to accept in our "Knowledge Is Power" society… where the Internet puts thousands of pages of information, data, and news about a company in front of us with a few clicks of a mouse.   People like to believe that with enough information, they can make a perfect decision… That by adding fact after fact, data point upon data point, their understanding becomes increasingly clear. But it doesn't always work like that.   In the field of behavioral finance – essentially the study of how people make decisions surrounding money – studies have repeatedly shown that humans usually gather too much information… and sometimes get stuck in the process.   Picking a stock, bond, or fund isn't an exact science. Often, it means letting some facts and data go…

    The market is treating Chipotle as if it is an Amazon, Tesla, Apple or Google, when in fact all they do is make burritos. With the money it would cost you to buy Chipotle today @ $14 billion dollars you could buy Wendy’s (WEN), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Papa John’s International (PZZA), and Dunkin’ Brands (DNKN). Chipotle would need to generate at least $24 in earnings per share in order to justify the current market cap — they are not even expected to generate half of that next year. Chipotle is expected to report Q1 on April 25 and the market, in my opinion, has already more than priced in good news.
