China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE: CHL) is the world’s largest mobile company. It has 900 million subscribers, almost three times the U.S. population. The company is owned by the Chinese government. The Trump administration wants to block its ability to do business in America, another casualty of an effort to keep Chinese technology companies from tapping into U.S. intellectual property.

The administration petitioned the FCC in a filing:

After significant engagement with China Mobile, concerns about increased risks to U.S. law enforcement and national security interests were unable to be resolved. Therefore, the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration pursuant to its statutory responsibility to coordinate the presentation of views of the Executive Branch to the FCC, recommends that the FCC deny China Mobiles Section 214 license request.

China Mobile’s petitions to do business in the United States date back to 2013.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Around a year ago, the partners launched an eczema drug that’s already surpassed Praluent on the sales charts, and a possible expansion to asthma could send Dupixent sales through the roof.In studies supporting an application under review at the moment, Dupixent reduced severe attacks by up to 67% for some patients with uncontrolled asthma. It also led to lung function measurements that suggest it can compete with GlaxoSmithKline’s (NYSE:GSK)Nucula for a slice of a global market for asthma treatments expected to reach $56.5 billion by 2025.

Having spun off Theravance BioPharmayears ago, Innoviva now sits back and collects royalties on the net sales of long-lasting COPD and asthma therapies jointly developed with GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK). You probably know these drugs as Breo Ellipta, Anoro Ellipta, and the newly approved Trelegy Ellipta.

    The fifth most valuable research and development project right now belongs to GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK) and it’s so fresh it doesn’t even have a proper name yet. GSK2857916 is a fancy protein bound to a lethal dose of chemo that it only releases when it finds its target. In this candidate’s case, the target is beta-cell maturation antigen, a protein often found on the surface of cancer cells in people with multiple myeloma.

    Today, Bill offers our readers a few of his favorites as Trump meets with Kim Jong Un.Here’s how to cash in regardless of how this summit turns out in the long run.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Last night, President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. This was the first meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. Following the agreement, analysts noted that the document signed by both parties included no concrete details for achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. Trump responded to criticism by saying he is fully confident that the Korean dictatorship will follow through. A U.S. district court will rule on whether to approve an $85 billion merger between AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX). The decision comes after about six weeks of debate in a courtroom. The ruling will likely have a significant impact on the proposed bid by The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) for media giant Twenty-First Century Fox Inc.(NYSE: FOXA). The Fed Open Market Committee kicks off its June meeting today. The U.S. central bank is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in 2018. On Wednesday, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will likely announce a hike of 0.25% to the benchmark rate to 2%. This would also mark the seventh hike since December 2015. Markets will be looking for clues during Powell’s conference to determine how many additional times the Fed plans to raise interest rates during the final six months of the year.

Best Stocks To Buy Right Now: Wendy’s/Arby’s Group Inc.(WEN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Throughout its history, Starbucks has mostly had a company-owned model for its retail locations, a strategy that is at odds with a trend of activist investors pushing fast food, restaurant and coffee companies to franchise locations out to raise cash for stock buybacks and debt reduction. In recent years, activists have targeted Jamba Juice (JMBA) , Potbelly (PBPB) , Jack in the Box (JACK) , Wendys Co. (WEN) , McDonald’s (MCD) and elsewhere. In addition, Starbucks has a one-share, one-vote structure, which can make it vulnerable to an activist investor seeking to elect dissident director candidates as it pursued the strategy.

    U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) has long been the standout company in the frack sand business.

Google is going on a U.S. hiring spree, increasing its footprint outside of Silicon Valley.

The Mountain View, California-based company is expanding or opening offices in nine states, Google (GOOG) CEO Sundar Pichai said during an earnings call on Thursday.

“We plan to hire thousands of people across the U.S. this year,” said Pichai. “Last year in the US we grew faster outside the Bay Area than in the Bay Area. To support this growth, we will be making significant investments in offices across nine states, including Colorado and Michigan.”

Typically considered a Silicon Valley company, the plans are consistent with Google’s U.S. hiring in recent years. The company currently has an office or a data center in 21 states.

The Alphabet-owned company will also open or build five new data centers in the United States in 2018. The company currently has six open data centers in states including Oklahoma, Iowa and North Carolina.

A single data center only employs between 70 and 350 people. Though their data centers don’t generate huge numbers of jobs, tech companies typically receive local and state tax incentives in exchange for picking certain locations.

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.”

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2018: Daimler AG (DDAIF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Rosevear]

    So without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the three: General Motors (NYSE:GM), Daimler AG (NASDAQOTH:DDAIF), and Delphi Automotive (NYSE:DLPH).

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    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.

    Daimler-Mercedes (OTCPK:DDAIF)

    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”.

    Other manufacturers are also planning to produce and sell all-electric trucks by the end of the current decade – Reuters reports that Navistar International Corp. (NYSE:NAV) and Volkswagen AG’s (OTCPK:VLKAF) Truck and Bus are working together to launch an electric medium duty truck by late 2019, while rival Daimler AG (OTCPK:DDAIF) has delivered the first of a smaller range of electric trucks to customers in New York.

However, the deal has enough hurdles in its path. Also, Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIY) (OTCPK:DDAIF) is also readying some electric cars for China under the Mercedes-Benz brand.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2018: Natural Gas(NG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    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.

Turning a few thousand dollars into millions by investing in new technology products like photo messages apps is a long shot. Unless you pay close attention to what apps are popular among teenagers — the “early adopters” of technology products – that is.

That’s the secret of winning the jackpot in high technology ventures.

And that’s what the board of the Saint Francis High School in Mountain View (SFHSMV) did.  Back in 2012, it invested $15,000 in seed money for Snap Inc., the maker of Snapchat photo—a new messaging application which was popular with teenagers at that time.

Last Thursday, SFHSMV’s investment in Snap Inc., which became a publicly traded company, was worth $24 million.
