Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2019

Mexico’s peso and Canada’s dollar are vulnerable to short-term weakness as talks drag on to salvage the North American Free Trade Agreement, with big swings only likely if a deal is reached quickly or the accord is scrapped altogether, according to Morgan Stanley.

Mexico’s currency could drop 10 percent if the deal is terminated, strategists including Michael Zezas wrote in a note Friday. On the other side of tail risks, if the pact is agreed to and signed this year, they would expect the peso to strengthen about 5 percent.

“FX is the main shock absorber for any change to the Nafta policy framework or to expectations,” the strategists said. Nonetheless, they wrote that while Mexican equities may gain just 2 percent from a deal, they could lose as much as 19 percent if Nafta is scrapped.

The U.S. on Thursday dashed hopes for a quick Nafta deal amid “gaping differences” on a number of topics, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau York expressed optimism about reaching an agreement soon. If negotiators can’t reach at least a preliminary accord this month, any resolution may be a long way off. The U.S. doesn’t have much time to get a revised deal approved under the current Congress, with mid-term elections on Nov. 6.

    The long saga of the Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG) and its food fiascos finally may have seen its worst. In fact, an almost 20% gain in the shares after the earnings report may be signaling something even larger. Chipotle shares have now rallied a whopping 60% from the post-panic lows, and many analysts on Wall Street are still hanging on to a very cautious or negative stance.

    While SNAP crushed earnings and gained more than a few new followers, investors bashed shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG).

    Chipotle topped earnings estimates this week. But there was plenty of bad news to go along with the burrito joint’s earnings beat. Chipotle management expects the chain to continue to suffer from decreased foot traffic and slow same-store sales growth.

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Chipotle Mexican Grill’s (NYSE:CMG) E. coli disaster will likely become a case study in crisis mismanagement if it hasn’t already.

    The burrito chain had a bulletproof brand back in 2015, with average unit volumes around $2.5 million and a market value of as much as $23 billion. It was a model for the restaurant industry after having essentially disrupted fast food and pioneered the fast casual model with its fresh-food, assembly-line format.

    Darden Restaurants Inc. (NYSE: DRI) leads a fairly busy day of earnings reports. The restaurant management giant easily topped Wall Street profit numbers by reporting earnings per share of $1.34. The average Wall Street estimate was $1.23. The firm also easily topped revenue expectations. DRI shares were up 4.5% this morning. The problems continue to mount for General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE). This morning, JPMorgan Securities slashed its price target for the U.S. conglomerate from $11 to $10 per share. The investment firm cited ongoing challenges to the company’s turbine business. General Electric has been under pressure since the financial crisis, and it was the worst performing stock on the Dow in 2017 before it was ultimately replaced on the index. Shares of Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) added 3.4% this morning, but the driver wasn’t necessarily positive for the global apparel giant. According to reports, the Baltimore-based sports apparel giant is cutting 3% of its international workforce. That equates to roughly 400 jobs. The company did raise its fiscal 2018 earnings forecast, and issued a revised update of severance costs. Look for earnings reports from Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MU), Thor Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO), United Natural Foods Inc. (NASDAQ: UNFI), Steelcase Inc. (NYSE: SCS), Scholastic Corp. (NASDAQ: SCHL), and Xcerra Corp. (NASDAQ: XCRA).

I recently provided a brief overview on the challenges facing the trucking industry. For railroads, the big news for the year has been Hunter Harrison’s new management role at CSX Corp. (NYSE:CSX). Trade-related volatility, driven by political rhetoric, has impacted Canadian rails as well as Kansas City Southern (NYSE:KSU).

Aside from news headlines and management shifts, most railroads have witnessed a strong uptrend in rail traffic performance during the first quarter. This has translated to all Class Is meeting and/or exceeding analyst estimates. This performance has not translated to Genesee & Wyoming (NYSE:GWR), as it was the only railroad to miss expectations. Rail traffic was also lower for the month of April when excluding carloads from new railroads.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Oscar Wilde famously quipped that “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.” That sums up what we’ve witnessed in the oil patch over the past year as a growing number of exploration and production companies (E&Ps) have copied the playbook developed by leading U.S. E&P ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) in the fall of 2016. That strategy, which included increasing its dividend and buying back stock, has been instrumental in creating value for its shareholders, evidenced by the fact its stock is up nearly 70% since that time.

    And yet, a funny thing has been happening in the market for oil stocks over this past week. All of a sudden, Wall Street analysts are talking up free cash flow as a reason to buy oil stocks. In fact, they can’t seem to shut up about it.

    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

Top 5 Canadian Stocks To Buy Right Now: Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc(VRX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Sometimes it’s better to raise funds when you can vs. when you have to. Look no farther than Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) , which is in a massive hole of debt and trades below $20 per share. It sure would have been nice to raise capital in a secondary offering with the stock over $200 per share for six months throughout 2015.

    The stock market finally hit some resistance on Tuesday, giving up ground and breaking a long streak of consecutive advances for most major benchmarks. Market participants got spooked by a rise in interest rates, with 10-year Treasury yields once again climbing above the 3% mark and leading some to predict even steeper advances in the future. With budget deficits ballooning, higher interest expenses on the national debt could have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, especially if it lures investors away from high-flying stocks. Yet even amid the bond-driven downturn, some individual companies saw good news lift their shares. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), Hollysys Automation Technologies (NASDAQ:HOLI), and Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) was worried about this, and so was traditional media. Bogus news sites had more traffic than legitimate ones late in the election cycle, according to a survey done by BuzzFeed:

A BuzzFeed News analysis found that top fake election news stories generated more total engagement on Facebook than top election stories from 19 major news outlets combined.

The sites examined were among the most traditionally trusted news sites in the world:

To examine the performance of election content from mainstream sites, we created a list that included the websites of the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC News, USA Today, Politico, CNN, Wall Street Journal, CBS News, ABC News, New York Daily News, New York Post, BuzzFeed, Los Angeles Times, NPR, The Guardian, Vox, Business Insider, Huffington Post, and Fox News. We then searched for their top-performing election content in the same three-month segments as above.

It is frightening to examine the extent to which false stories did well, and the fact that many came from virtually unknown sources:

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The late Canadian-American actor Alan Thicke doled out measured advice as a psychiatrist dad in the sitcom Growing Pains. If only his heirs could use some handholding from “America’s Dad” now that they’re battling how to divvy up his estate.

It’s just half a year since Thicke died after a heart attack last December; he was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son Carter. Thicke’s two older sons, popstar Robin and Brennan, as co-executors of their dad’s living trust, have filed a petition in the Superior Court in Los Angeles, seeking instructions on the interplay between the 1988 trust (amended last year) and a 2005 prenup signed by their dad and his third wife, Tanya Callau. At issue is what’s separate property, what’s community property, and how it should be split among the three children and Callau.
