Top 10 Medical Stocks For 2021

President Donald Trump has made it very clear that U.S. companies who do business with China will be impacted by his tariffs, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Tuesday.

“I think the president is saying, ‘Hey, listen guys, you are not going to make as much money in China as you used to. That game is over,'” Cramer told “Squawk on the Street.”

The trade conflict between the world’s two largest economies heightened Monday evening after the Trump administration announced it will impose 10 percent tariffs on another $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

Those duties will rise to 25 percent at the end of the year.

In response Tuesday morning, Reuters reports that China said it will institute tariffs on U.S. goods worth $60 billion on Sept. 24.

    One disadvantage for Southwest Airlines is that customers have to bring their own food along. Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) still offers complimentary meals for customers in coach, and other airlines have buy-onboard options. By contrast, Southwest’s planes have small galleys, so the carrier will only offer a “snack bag” on its Hawaii flights. Many travelers may want at least the option of a hot meal for what can be a six-hour flight.

The Trump administration has threatened to slap $11 billion in tariffs on the world’s largest economic trade bloc, a move that could heighten trade tensions at a time when the United States is trying to strike a deal with China. The move is reportedly tied to the EU’s ongoing efforts to allegedly offer subsidies to European airline manufacturer Airbus SE (OTCMKTS: EADSF). Products that face tariffs include wine, fish, and cheese. In deal news, Wynn Resorts Ltd. (NASDAQ: WYNN) is picking up its latest acquisition target. CNN reports the firm has offered Crown Resorts a whopping $7.1 billion in a takeover deal.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Gaming companies aren’t differentiated by the table games they offer, what slot machines they have, or even what comps they give to players. If you think about it, casino games themselves are pretty similar whether you’re in Iowa or Macau. 

What differentiates gaming companies today are the resorts they build and where those resorts are located. Put a megaresort on the desolate north end of the Las Vegas Strip, and you might go bankrupt before it’s completed (see Echelon, Las Vegas Plaza, and Fontainebleau), but if you’re building a multi-billion dollar resort in Macau or Singapore, it’s almost impossible to lose money. No company has better locations than Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), which is why it’s one of the most profitable companies in gaming. Here’s where the company’s money comes from. 

Image source: Las Vegas Sands.

Where Las Vegas Sands’ cash comes from

Revenue isn’t a great way to measure a gaming company’s success, so investors should look at the cash flow coming from gaming resorts. The best measure of cash flow for a gaming company is property EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. The biggest investment a gaming company makes is building the resort itself, so once the resort is built, it’s appropriate to measure ongoing cash flow, something EBITDA does better than net income.

    FLIR Systems (NASDAQ:FLIR) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “FLIR Systems gross margins remain vulnerable to a host of factors, including product mix changes and manufacturing cost absorption. Also, high manufacturing cost absorption is likely to restrict the company’s growth. Moreover, factors like imposition of governmental controls and restrictions on export of technology remain concerns. Poor economic conditions across FLIR Systems’ key operating regions may hamper capital investment and consumer spending, thereby weighing on the company’s profitability. Moreover, the company’s lead time for licensing the orders have increased, resulting in a lengthy order acceptance period, which is likely to hurt the top line. However, it enjoys a strong top-line growth, driven by impressive performance across most of its segments. In the past six months, FLIR Systems’ shares have outperformed compared with the industry average.”

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

1. Inauguration Day: On Friday, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.

Since his election, Trump has shown an uncanny ability to move markets. Bullish investors, girded by his pro-business rhetoric, have pushed the Dow closer and closer to 20,000 points. But the Republican has also introduced a degree of uncertainty. Trump has made a habit of targeting specific companies on Twitter with little notice. His marks, such as Boeing (BA) and Lockheed Martin (LMT), have seen shares plummet as a result.

Corporate America could be in for a bumpy ride over the next four years.

2. Time for Davos: Business and political leaders from around the world will convene in Davos, Switzerland on Tuesday to kick off the World Economic Forum.

IMF director Christine Lagarde, Facebook (FB, Tech30) COO Sheryl Sandberg, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Alibaba (BABA, Tech30) founder Jack Ma will be among those in attendance. This year’s theme is “Responsive and Responsible Leadership.”
