Even when you take into account the income that bond ETFs provide, the iShares fund’s total return is still -7%.

    Similar strength was seen from microcap Galmed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GLMD), which rose by more than 150% during a single trading session two weeks ago despite mixed results. The move followed the release of phase 2b data from its 52-week Arrest study for NASH drug hopeful Aramchol. In that trial, a statistically significant reduction in liver fat was noted with one of the two doses (the 400 mg dose). However, the 600 mg dose led to a statistically significant improvement in overall NASH resolution (19.2% vs. 7.5%) and NASH resolution without worsening of fibrosis (16.7% vs. 5%) relative to the placebo.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

China will buy an additional $60 billion to $90 billion worth of American goods over the next several years, with agricultural products poised to benefit in the near term followed by energy and ultimately non-high-tech manufactured products, according to Morgan Stanley.

The world’s largest trading nation will likely seek a “non-disruptive approach” to reducing its record trade surplus with the U.S. by gradually increasing the share of additional goods imported from there, Hong Kong-based economists Robin Xing and Jenny Zheng wrote in a report this week. Other economists say China will have to divert imports from other nations.

China’s imports increased by $255 billion, or 16 percent, to $1.84 trillion last year, customs administration data show. Incoming shipments from the U.S. rose by $20 billion, accounting for less than 8 percent of the total gain.

Boosting goods imports from the U.S. by more than $90 billion could require Washington to relax controls on high-tech exports to China, “an option in which the U.S. has appeared to show little interest in the current trade talks,” Xing and Zheng wrote.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    AmerisourceBergen (ABC) sprinted to the top of the S&P 500 after releasing Street-beating earnings this morning.

    Getty Images

    Shares of AmerisourceBergen jumped 8.8% to $$75.96 today, while the S&P 500 dropped fell 0.7% to 2,097.94.

    Leerink’s David Larsen and Matt Dellelo traces today’s big gain to Amerisource’s big drop following McKesson’s (MCK) earnings last week:

    This morningAmerisourceBergen reported adjusted EPS of $1.30, which was well ahead of Leerink/consensus of $1.22/$1.22. The quality of the beat appears decent, with some pressure in gross margin, completely offset by lower SG&A costs. Given the dramatic reduction in guidance provided byMcKesson (MP), investors had been very cautious heading into the quarter. We are pleased to see that F2017 EPS guidance of $5.63-$5.88 brackets Leerink/consensus estimates of $5.85/$5.82. Brand inflation is now expected to be in the +7-9% range from 10% previously, and F2017 is expected to be back-half loaded. Our first impression of the quarter is that the print and guide are good and there will likely be a relief rally in the shares.

    AmerisourceBergen’s market capitalization rose to $18.1 billion from $16.6 billion yesterday.
