Hot High Tech Stocks For 2018

Support is building within the OPEC to extend its oil production cuts beyond June.

Senior Gulf officials tell CNNMoney a proposal is in the works. It is said to have the support of a key OPEC committee that is responsible for monitoring countries, and ensuring they are complying with an agreement to reduce oil output.

“There is no formal proposal from Saudi Arabia but one is taking shape in the monitoring committee,” one official said. “There’s strong support in the monitoring committee.”

The options on the table are whether to extend the cuts by three months or six, the official said. Oil prices have been rising for a week on speculation about the cuts.

In December, OPEC and non-OPEC producers agreed to cut output by 1.8 million barrels per day for six months to help stabilize oil prices. The monitoring committee, led by Kuwait, which consists of both OPEC and non-OPEC members said last month it has been satisfied with the compliance levels.

best stock buys now: Western Union Company (The)(WU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Mathews]

    Western Union Co. (NYSE: WU) is the leading independent provider of consumer money transfer services. After a rough couple of years and dealing with compliance and regulatory issues, WU has finally weathered the storm. Market share has stabilized and revenues have been slowly growing. One of Western Union’s strengths is its size in the industry. The money-transfer business is highly scalable because the incremental costs of processing additional transactions are minimal. This allows WU to have operating margins that are twice as large as its closest competitor. Also, since WU is a highly recognizable brand, consumers flock to use its services in comparison to its peers. Western Union submitted a bid to buy the Australian company OzForex. If this deal goes through, it will provide additional scale to WU, especially to a market clientele that is more affluent. With the troubling times behind the company and expansion on the horizon, expect WU stock to appreciate to $24.

    The stock posting the largest daily percentage gain in the S&P 500 ahead of the close Tuesday was The Western Union Co. (NYSE: WU) which jumped 3.6% to $20.28.
