Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    A maker of commercial and industrial kitchen equipment may seem like an unusual company for Tom and David Gardner to fall in love with — no matter how how high-quality those ovens and food processors are — but Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) is a bit more than that. And the biggest reason why has a lot to do with its CEO, Selim Bassoul, who was brought in specifically to give the company a culture.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a strong day on Wall Street, and major benchmarks posted solid gains of around 1%. Market participants were generally happy about oil prices moving back into the $70s, hoping for a rebound in hard-hit areas of the country that had taken advantage of the triple-digit oil prices of the early 2010s by dramatically ramping up production of shale plays and similar opportunities. Yet even with the generally favorable mood, some stocks weren’t able to join the rally. Kinross Gold (NYSE:KGC), Weibo (NASDAQ:WB), and Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

Wells Fargo’s quest to clean up its act requires workers to shine a light on shady activity when they see it.

A top Wells Fargo (WFC) executive said on Tuesday that employees are increasingly using the bank’s confidential hotline to report bad behavior.

“Our volumes increased on our ethics line. We’re glad they did. People raised their hand,” said Theresa LaPlaca, who leads a conduct office that Wells Fargo created last year.

“That is success for me,” LaPlaca said at the ACFE Global Fraud Conference in Las Vegas.

Reassuring Wells Fargo workers to trust the bank’s ethics hotline is no easy task. Nearly half a dozen workers told CNNMoney in 2016 that they were fired by Wells Fargo after calling the hotline to try to stop the bank’s fake-account problem.

Last year, Wells Fargo was ordered to re-hire and pay $5.4 million to a whistleblower who was fired after calling the ethics hotline to report suspected fraud. Wells Fargo faces multiple lawsuits from employees who say they protested sales misconduct. The bank said in a filing that it also faces state law whistleblower actions filed with the Labor Department alleging retaliation.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

Doug Hughes focuses on lesser-known, small cap regional banks; the editor of Bank Newsletter looks for banks that operate in attractive regional markets, often ones that would be attractive acquisition targets.

AvidBank Holdings (AVBH) has the fastest growth of any bank out there and yet is still one of the safest with almost no bad loans, and a great, great market area in Palo Alto, California.

Management knows what it is doing and they will likely sell within 3 years. Earnings power is $3.00 a share by 2018. This is a great bank that is operating in great markets.

I consider the shares to be very safe, make it a top holding in the current environment.

With rates going up and most large regionals banks up 30% or more recently a deal price would now have to be at least 2.5 times book or $32 a share.

In my view, this stock has almost zero downside risk in an otherwise high-risk market. Buy now and sleep well. I consider the stock to have an excellent risk-reward ratio.
