Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

May 22, 2018: Markets opened higher again Tuesday but it’s been a bumpy day ever since, especially for the blue chips. Trading has been mixed all day with the energy sector the day’s biggest loser while financials and utilities have performed best. The FOMC releases the tea leaves, uh, minutes, of its latest meeting tomorrow. A slightly weakening dollar and still-high 10-year yields pretty much offset each other.

WTI crude oil for June delivery closed at $72.13 a barrel, down about 0.2% for the day. The July contract settled down about 0.2% at $72.20. June gold added about 0.1% on the day to settle at $1,292.00. Equities were headed for lower close about 10 minutes before the bell as the Dow traded down 0.69% for the day, the S&P 500 traded down 0.26%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded down 0.12%.

Bitcoin futures (XBTM8) for June delivery traded at $8,195, down about 2.4% on the CBOE after opening at $8,420 this morning. The trading range today was $8,170 to $8,450.

Best Financial Stocks To Invest In 2019

Huge public companies still prospered this past year despite wild swings between market uncertainty and volatility, punctuated by unexpected political outcomes.

The 2017 Global 2000 is bigger and more valuable in the aggregate than last year’s list, with higher sales, profits, assets and market values. The list as a whole is significantly more valuable from the year prior, with aggregate market capitalization up 10%. Here’s how we crunched the numbers.

Despite slowing GDP figures, China and the U.S., whose companies make up more than 40% of the list, continue to dominate the top 10 list with financial giants including #1 Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) and #4 JPMorgan Chase. China’s two-year stronghold of the top 3 spots was disrupted this year with Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway snagging the third spot, another signal that U.S. companies didn’t suffer terribly from market uncertainty that defined the year, as Berkshire owns many other American staple stocks.
