What is the single best indicator of the American Dream? Many would point to household income growth. The Census Bureau has now published some selected annual household income data in a new report: Income and Poverty in the United States: 2014. Last year, the median (middle) household income was $53,657 – a 0.13% year-over-year increase that shrinks to -1.48% when adjusted for inflation. Let’s put the new release into a larger historical context.

Our study of the Census Bureau’s historical data shows a 651% growth in median household incomes from 1967 through 2014. Sounds impressive, but if you adjust for inflation using the Census Bureau’s method, that nominal 651% total growth shrinks to about 21%.

But if we dig a bit deeper into the method of inflation adjustment, the American Dream looks more like an illusion, as in “money illusion.”

investment news: Discover Financial Services(DFS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JACK HOUGH]

    Like CVS, Discover has trounced the broad market over the long term but sold off recently. It’s down more than 15% this year. Costs rose early in the year in part due to one-time expenses related to anti-money-laundering efforts and other regulatory concerns. Analysts predict an offsetting decline in expenses next year. Don’t confuse Discover with a company that’s primarily in the business of running a credit-card network, like Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). It’s basically a credit-card lender, like Capital One Financial (COF), that runs its own network to gain a competitive advantage.

    By saving on network fees, Discover can offer attractive card rewards, including a popular cash-back program. Any card lender can offer cash back, of course, but being too aggressive risks hurting margins. Discover has grown its portfolio of credit-card loans much faster than big banks have in recent years. And it has done so with industry-leading returns on capital. Rising growth could be on the way. Early this year, Discover went on a marketing spree. Last quarter, it reported its best card growth since 2007. Historically, new-card growth and loan growth have been closely correlated. In a November note to investors, Morgan Stanley analyst Cheryl Pate predicted accelerating loan growth within six months. Meanwhile, defaults remain low. Shares sell for less than 10 times projected earnings for the next four quarters, down from 12 times at the end of last year. They could rise 20% on a combination of earnings growth and a valuation rebound. The dividend yield is 2%.

    While a new year has been ushered in, it is clear PayPal’s philosophy has not changed. Last week, PayPal entered into another major agreement, this time with credit card issuerDiscover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS).

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We get the bull case.American Express is a blue-chip Dow component with an iconic global brand. It generates >30% returns on tangible, but it is trading well below its historical multiple and has underperformed post the election. Costco is now in the rearview mirror, and the string of negative surprises that have weighed on the stock are now poised to abate and position the company to start surprising positively. With Capital One Financial (COF), Discover Financial Services (DFS), and Synchrony Financial (SYF) all trading near their historical peaks, some have concluded thatAmerican Express is headed back to its historical high above $90. While this thought process may sound logical, we believe it only works in a world where generalists are steering the ship, and view it as highly susceptible to unraveling when negative revisions hit. American Express is not the business it once was, it doesnt have the same earnings power, and, in our view, it doesnt deserve to trade near its historical valuation.

investment news: Becton, Dickinson and Company(BDX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cooper Creagan]

    Back in June, we drew your attention to Becton, Dickinson and Co. (NYSE: BDX), the 120-year-old medical technology powerhouse that has increased its dividend every year for 45 years.

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    Becton Dickinson and Co. (NYSE: BDX) is a New Jersey-based developer and manufacturer of medical devices. The company’s products include various types of needles and syringe systems, infusion therapy products, and blood collection products. Its devices are used by healthcare organizations for research, laboratory operations, and health-related safety.

  • [By Craig Jones]

    On CNBC's Fast Money Halftime Report, Jon Najarian spoke about options trading in Becton Dickinson and Co (NYSE: BDX). He said there was a big volume in the January 175 calls. Over 11,000 contracts were traded early in the session. He followed the trade and he is going to be in Becton Dickinson for two weeks.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Becton Dickinson (BDX) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after agreeing to pay $24 billion for C.R. Bard (BCR).

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Becton Dickinsondropped 4.4% to $177.07, while the S&P 500 rose 1.1% to 2,374.15. C.R. Bard jumped 20% to $302.41, making it the best performing stock in the S&P 500.

    Leerink’sRichard Newitter andRavi Misra argue that “growth doesn’t come cheap.” They explain:

    We had expected BDX’s M&A engine would eventually resume as the company moved into its third year post the 2015 CareFusion (CFN) acquisition; however, we do think the expectation was for tuck-in or mid-sized type transactions. This transaction is certainly on the bigger side, and will mark the largest in BDX’s history just as BDX wraps up year 2 post the CFN integration. Naturally this could raise some questions as to whether mgmt is “biting off more than it can chew.” But, size (and the hefty price tag) aside, the rationale is not entirely out of left field in our view. BCR will benefit BDX through a higher top-line & GM profile and provides several fast-growing product offerings in underpenetrated markets (i.e. PICCs, Lutonix/Drug Coated Balloons, targeted temperature mgmt). BCR’s Foley catheters and PICC products should complement BDX’s portfolio & strategy aimed at offering a single complete end- to-end medication management & safety solution to hospitals. Also, BCR’s emerging markets (EM) growth is accelerating, which should help BDX’s EM division, which has been experiencing slowing growth in recent years.

    Becton Dickinson’s market capitalization fell to $37.7 billion today from $39.4 billion on Friday. It reported net income of $976 million on sales of $12.5 billion in 2016.

investment news: HP Inc.(HPQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Alex Cho]

    That being the case, it wouldnt take substantial market share gains for AMD to reverse the multi-year decline in its processor business, as performance/watt is what will drive adoption from key PC makers like Dell, HP Inc (NYSE:HPQ)and Lenovo. AMD hasnt been very competitive in the MPU (microprocessor unit) segment for quite a while, but given the recent node shift to 14nm FinFET over at GlobalFoundries, and mention of new architecture by AMD earlier this year at COMPUTEX Taiwan, I get the impression that performance of Summit Ridge, i.e. Zen will match Skylake and will perhaps come in slightly slower than Kaby Lake.

    However, for all the doom and gloom surrounding the PC market, the computer industry remains one of the most important subsectors in all of tech. In fact, even as unit volumes contract, over 260 million personal computers were sold last year globally, and the companies that remain at the center of this market — names such asHP Inc. (NYSE:HPQ) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) — continue to print tens of billions of dollars in aggregate profits from the space and pass them along to shareholders through dividends and buybacks. So let’s review what makes these PC makers some of the best dividend stocks in the industry.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2018

With the first Presidential Debate over with, our Elite Opportunity Pronewsletter had this to say about what to invest in if Hillary Clinton were to win the election:

Should Clinton end up being the chosen one, the results are likely to favor those multi-nationals with above average exposure to revenue from abroad, various areas of tech, big data and anything else that is likely to benefit from the big getting bigger.

These aren’t political opinions, these are strictly observations I’ve made over the years and years of watching how our Presidents have affected various sectors of the markets, and more importantly how they can change them.

Several factors have been responsible for pushing the total market cap of cryptocurrencies higher. Shutterstock

The total market capitalization (market cap) of cryptocurrencies continues to grow, recently surpassing $170 billion and hitting a fresh, record high.

The total market cap of these digital assets rose to as much as $172.2 billion earlier today, according to CoinMarketCap. 

This figure represents a more than 850% increase from their value of $17.7 billion at the start of this year. 

Why does this innovative asset class continue to grow?

The crypto market is growing for several reasons, according to analysts.

A steady supply of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), a rising number of funds that trade cryptocurrencies and the sustained interest of investors are all contributing to this trend.

    Shares of HP Inc. (NYSE:HPQ) rose 15.4% in February 2017, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

    So what

    The big jump came late in the month. HP reported first-quarter 2017 results on Feb. 22, leaving Wall Street’s estimates far behind despite modest revenue growth and flat earnings. Investors chose to ignore a gloomy slate of second-quarter guidance targets, and share prices soared as much as 10% higher the next day.

    HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ) reported fiscal second-quarter financial results after markets closed Wednesday. The company said that it had $0.40 in earnings per share (EPS) and $12.39 billion in revenue, versus consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters that called for $0.39 in EPS and $11.88 billion in revenue. The same period from last year had $0.41 in EPS and $11.59 billion in revenue.

    That being the case, it wouldnt take substantial market share gains for AMD to reverse the multi-year decline in its processor business, as performance/watt is what will drive adoption from key PC makers like Dell, HP Inc (NYSE:HPQ)and Lenovo. AMD hasnt been very competitive in the MPU (microprocessor unit) segment for quite a while, but given the recent node shift to 14nm FinFET over at GlobalFoundries, and mention of new architecture by AMD earlier this year at COMPUTEX Taiwan, I get the impression that performance of Summit Ridge, i.e. Zen will match Skylake and will perhaps come in slightly slower than Kaby Lake.

    Today,Coherus BioSciences (CHRS) lost a patent case with AbbVie (ABBV) that would have allowed for a generic version of Humira. Citigroup’s Andrew Baum and Peter Verdult have the details:

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    The Patent Trial and Appeal Boardjust announced that CHRSs IPR on the 166 Humira formulation patent was not instituted. We remind investors that Amgens IPR on the same 157 and 158 formulation patents were also not instituted. Any at risk launch on a formulation that potentially infringes 166, 157 or 158 would seem unlikely and carries a high risk thatAbbVie would attain a preliminary injunction. It is not clear whether either company could attempt launch with a formulation that does not infringe the patent estate. We note that Sandoz has uniquely not filed any IPR on any biosimilars. Sandoz has not announced the FDA has accepted their filing for their biosimilar adalimumab…We anticipate that the perceived historic relationship of the immunogenicity of Humira as it relates to dose stretching will form a key debate in the ongoing PTAB case…

    Following the decision of the PTAB not to institute CHRS IPR on the 166 Humira formulation patent, we continue to anticipate that first likely launch of biosimilar adalimumab (Humira) in the US will be delayed until 2020, in line with our published forecasts and biosimilar model. We anticipate the open IPR hearings for the 135 dosing patent on Humira (filed by Boehringer and Coherus) to begin in Feb 2017 with the ruling in May. We rateAbbVie a Buy. We continue to prefer BUY rated Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) among the US names.

    Shares of AbbVie have climbed 5.6% to $59.18 at 3:05 p.m. today, while Coherus BioSciences has tumbled 11% to $25.18,Bristol-Myers Squibb has gained 3% to $52.56, andEli Lilly has risen 1.7% to $73.70.

Top 5 Stocks To Own Right Now

At the height of the dot-com bubble, the Lycos search engine was worth about $240 per eyeball.   About 20 years ago, Internet evangelists argued that profits or even revenue no longer mattered… They created alternative valuations to measure Internet stocks, including the number of "eyeballs" they could attract.   Tech stocks soared. Bulls argued, "This time it's different."   Of course, we know it wasn't. Profits still mattered. And the tech darlings came crashing down – bringing the rest of the market with them. Today, Lycos is worth practically nothing.   "This time it's different" has become a pejorative phrase. It's used by value-investing adherents to tag those willing to buy stocks at anything higher than a reasonable valuation.   So with stocks on the rise… is it different this time?

    Many talented authors have posted about publicly listed equities trading at or near asset value with significant tax attributes, namely Net Operating Losses (NOLs), and the inherent asymmetry when an activist or new management makes a break from money losing operations to pursue transformative acquisitions. Several of the activists or lead investors, such as Becker Drapkin (EMKR, CNSI, SDOI) or Sam Zell’s Equity Group Investments (PARR and RELY), have long track records of successfully repurposing tax attribute rich companies via creative financing and transformative acquisitions. There are also some newer entrants into the space, such as KKR (OTCQB:WMIH) and Carlson Capital (OTCQB:SWKH).

Top 5 Stocks To Own Right Now: Alliance Data Systems Corporation(ADS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Alliance Data Systems (ADS) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after beating the Street’s earnings and revenue expectations.

    Getty Images

    Alliance Data Systemsgained 8.3% to $260.62, while the S&P 500 rose 0.8% to 2,355.84.

    Evercore ISI’s David Togut and team argue that Alliance Data Systems is “checking the right boxes.” They explain:

    ADS’ 1Q/17 earnings reinforced our conviction that net charge offs will stabilize at the end of this year, driving accelerating earnings growth in 2018. Card Services surpassed our revenue and EBITDA forecasts fueled by an 80 basis point increase in gross card yield thanks to rising interest rates. Epsilon’s revenue growth accelerated to 7% from a 1% decline in 4Q/16 driven by double digit growth in Automotive, Agency and digital CRM plus an easy comparison. LoyaltyOne revenue and EBITDA fell below our estimates given soft results from AIR MILES, which is adjusting its value proposition after the Ontario Legislature last December eliminated the expiration date on AIR MILES. Overall, ADS remains on track to generate double-digit adjusted EBITDA and EPS gains in 2017, and in 2018 to accelerate EPS growth to the mid-teens given slowing headwinds from delinquencies plus operating leverage from stabilizing net charge-off rates.

    Alliance Data Systems’ market capitalization rose to $14.6 billion today from $13.5 billion yesterday.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The stock posting the largest daily percentage gain in the S&P 500 ahead of the close Thursday was Alliance Data Systems Corp. (NYSE: ADS) which jumped 8.3% to $260.56. The stocks 52-week range is $185.02 to $263.40. Volume was roughly 1.2 million which is above the daily average of around 606,000 shares.

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Alliance Data Systems (ADS) was the worst performer in the S&P 500 Tuesday.

    Getty Images

    ADS shares fell $9.32, or 3.8%, to $238.32, compared to the S&P 500, which fell 3.38 points, or 0.14%, to 2353.78.

    The shares were hurt by a bearish note from Oppenheimer: Analysts Ben Chittenden and Dominick Gabriele initiated coverage of the stock with an Underperform rating and a $185 price target.

    Details from the note:

    Long investors seem generally to believe that the profitability of ADS’s capital-light/data-driven/tech-based businesses (Epsilon/LoyaltyOne) will turn relatively soon and that EPS will be driven by more than just the card business. The logical conclusion is the multiple should be FinTech-based. We think it’s just as easy to make the case that, while ADS had a first-mover advantage on data-driven, SKU-level analytics, competitive advantage is diminishing and the profitability of these businesses will likely take longer to turn (and likely not return to historical levels). Thus, earnings will continue to be driven by the balance sheet-intensive card business (our ’18E EPS is 6% below consensus) and should be valued as such, we think.

    Advanced Micro Devices(AMD) was the worst performer in the S&P 500 yesterday.

Top 5 Stocks To Own Right Now: HP Inc.(HPQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    HP Inc. (HPQ) rose to the top of the S&P 500 Wednesday.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    The shares climbed 48 cents, or 2.7%, to $18.02, compared to the S&P 500, which lost 8.85 points, or 0.38%, to 2344.93.

    HP was helped by data from IDC that showed the firm regained the crown of top PC vendor from rival Levono Group in Q1.

    In addition, Morgan Stanleys Katy Huberty reiterated an Overweight rating on HP and increased her price target to $22 from $19:

    In the past 18 months, HP removed over $1B of excess costs and refocused investment dollars on driving innovation across printing and personal systems. Recent product refreshes, including JetIntelligence laser printers, Sprocket mobile photo printer, and premium and gaming/VR-focused PCs are now driving share gains and a return to top-line growth (total revenue grew 2% and 4% Y/Y in last two fiscal quarters, respectively). By reinventing HP, we believe management is heralding a new era for the company whereby investors can expect greater confidence in top-line stabilization as well as earnings and FCF durability.

    Yesterday, American Airlines(AAL)was the best performing stock in the S&P 500.

    Small cap 3D printing stockStratasys, Ltd (NASDAQ: SSYS)reported Q1 earnings before the market opened this morning that met expectations, but shares are falling as much as 10% in premarket trading given the run-up the stock has already had. Stratasys is the largest U.S. manufacturer of 3D printers by revenue whileHP Inc (NYSE: HPQ), which has recently entered the3D printer market,is already number two. Nevertheless,it appears that 3D printing stockshave at least stabilized as the short interest has largely been cleared out.

  • [By Brian Mathews]

    Originally part of the Hewlett-Packard giant, HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ) split into two companies: HP Inc. and HP Enterprises. HP Inc. is the company that sells personal computers and printers. Although the demand for PCs has been sluggish over the last year, analysts expect sales to stabilize. However, the biggest growth factor for HPQ is that its split from HP Enterprises has increased its financial flexibility to pursue higher ROI projects that should drive further innovation. Another potential blockbuster opportunity for HPQ is its penetration into the 3D printing market. Although this industry is still in the pioneering stages, HPQ could use this as an opportunity to stake market share. With increased financial flexibility after the breakup, the projection for HPQ is $16 a share in the upcoming year.

    Investors are likely familiar with the basic history of HP (NYSE:HPQ), the seminal tech company founded by Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard in a one-car garage in Palo Alto nearly eight decades ago. HP later evolved from a producer of electronic test equipment into the world’s largest PC maker, a title which it held for about six years (2007-2013) before being overtaken by Chinese tech giant Lenovo.

Best High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Police in India have arrested a man they say was the ringleader of a network of call centers that allegedly swindled thousands of Americans out of millions of dollars.

Sagar Thakkar, 24, was detained in Mumbai after arriving on a flight from Dubai on Saturday.

“He was the mastermind of IRS scam call centers in the state of Maharashtra and one center in Ahmedabad,” said Mukund Hatote, assistant commissioner of police in Thane, just north of Mumbai.

Hatote said Thakkar stands accused of extortion, cheating, impersonation, criminal conspiracy as well as violating India’s communications and tech laws.

News of the scam broke last October when Indian police raided nine calls centers — eight in Thane in Maharashtra — and arrested more than 70 people on suspicion of posing as IRS agents to steal cash from U.S. citizens.

Workers at bogus call centers used American accents to impersonate IRS agents. They told their victims that they owed back taxes and would risk arrest if they hung up or failed to pay up.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    After meeting with the senior management team of Progenics (PGNX) , Valeant’s partner for oral Relistor, we continue to think that this drug would be a good addition to Valeant’s GI (gastrointestinal) franchise. The PDUFA date for oral Relistor is 7/19/16. AlthoughValeant is leading interactions with the FDA, Progenics is highly confident regarding an approval in July based on its discussions with Valeant. Progenics believes that oral Relistor could be a $1B+ opportunity for Valeant, even with the recent decrease in opioid usage. For context, we estimate ’16 sales of $9.9B for Valeant. An approval for oral Relistor would also help remind the Street that Valeant’s brand drug pipeline is underappreciated, in our view. We think pipeline advancements for brand drugs could drive multiple expansion forValeant shares (on P/E).
