Trump on Monday evening ordered up identification of $200 billion in Chinese imports for additional tariffs of 10 percent — with another $200 billion after that if Beijing retaliates.

In addition, some good news from several parts of the market improved overall sentiment. Movado Group (NYSE:MOV), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU), and Exact Sciences (NASDAQ:EXAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

Companies hate to cut dividends. Knowing the backlash they’ll get from stockholders, many executives and board members consider it a desperate act of last resort. They will halt non-discretionary expenditures, reduce payroll and overhead, and even take on debt in order to maintain distributions.

And that’s exactly why dividend hikes send such a strong bullish signal. A company wouldn’t bump quarterly payouts to $0.60 per share from $0.50 unless it were fairly certain that incoming cash flows would be more than sufficient to cover the higher dividend, with room to spare. The last thing they want is to raise it today only to lower back down tomorrow. A dividend hike is a clear vote of confidence for future success.

    That much becomes clear after taking a look at fuel cell stocks Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP). The companies generated just $235 million in revenue combined last year. While that would seem to indicate that the technology has a ways to go, a closer look shows both companies are on an upward trajectory as they position to exploit decarbonization trends. It also reveals two different growth strategies.

Year-over-year revenue growth of 91% is pretty difficult to argue with, and management thinks second-quarter 2018 sales will grow by at least 60% from the prior-year period. All in all, it’s shaping up to be a great year for top-line growth.
