Best Growth Stocks To Own Right Now

Global oil demand has expanded at a relatively steady pace for decades. At its current growth rate, global oil consumption will hit the 100-million-barrel-per-day (BPD) mark next year, up from 97.8 million BPD in 2017. According to most forecasts, including that of the International Energy Agency (IEA), demand should continue climbing until at least 2040 even with accelerated growth in electric vehicles.

However, in a new estimate, energy industry consultancy Wood Mackenzie has pushed up that time frame by four years, and sees 2036 as the year that oil demand will peak. Driving its view is the expected accelerated adoption of autonomous electric vehicles, which it predicts will become widely accepted by 2035. While that would finally curb the world’s insatiable demand for oil, it won’t dry it up completely.

The benchmark crude touched $80.00, as markets are concerned about the impact renewed Iranian sanctions will have on global supply.

    In the healthcare world, one of those has to be the impressive quarterly report from Intuitive Surgical(NASDAQ:ISRG). The company increased its revenue by 25%, and accelerated its sales of the da Vinci robotic surgical systems that made it famous. But it’s not just the expensive hardware that is allowing it to prosper — it’s that every machine needs a steady supply of the disposable instruments and accessories used during its procedures.

Hot Growth Stocks To Invest In Right Now

It’s a new week, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the excitement is over.

Last week was historic, with the surprise election of Donald Trump and the quick reversal in stocks from limit down in overnight trading Tuesday to explosive rallies in stocks and Treasury yields Wednesday and Thursday. We’re probably not going to see such huge swings in the coming week, but intraday volatility could remain a factor, particularly as word starts to filter out from Washington around potential cabinet picks. Who’s going to run the Treasury? How about trade relations? Be ready for possible market reactions as these names get announced in the near future.

In addition to continued buzz around the election, a number of economic reports might keep investors on their toes, including retail sales on Tuesday, the producer price index (PPI) on Wednesday, the consumer price index (CPI) on Thursday, and leading indicators on Friday. Leading indicators, in particular, could give a better sense of how the economy might look going forward.

With economic growth projections rising and a December Fed rate hike increasingly baked in by the futures market, yields on Treasury bonds continued their strength Friday even as stocks took a breather early in the day. Yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note traded at around 2.14% as of midday Friday, the highest since January, and up an astonishing 40 basis points or more from earlier in the week. When the election results became clear, some economists began raising their growth projections (see below), implying that rates could go higher and that perhaps the economy might be strong enough to handle higher rates. And chances of a Fed rate hike reached 85% by Friday, according to CME Group futures.

Hot Growth Stocks To Watch For 2019

Treasury rates topped 3 percent for the first time in four years. For equity investors, the timing could’ve hardly been worse.

The rate milestone was never going to spark celebration on the stock market, as rising bond yields signal higher borrowing costs for consumers and companies and can send stock market investors scurrying to the bond market in search of returns. But it needn’t be all bad, especially if yields are increasing as economic growth is accelerating.

Enter Caterpillar Inc., 3M Co. and United Technologies Corp., stalwarts of American industry that serve as bellwethers for key pieces of the global economy. Caterpillar had its biggest decline since 2016, and 3M plunged the most in 12 years, with both warning that rising costs and tepid demand might hurt profits as the year goes on. Wall Street took the news as a warning that the worldwide economic expansion might be near its peak.

“It means economic growth might not be what the administration is saying, that the tax cuts will pay for themselves because you’ll have increased revenue from higher GDP,” said Donald Selkin, New York-based chief market strategist at Newbridge Securities Corp.
