    Starbuck’s Corp.(Nasdaq: SBUX) Executive Chair Howard Schultz announced he will depart the company. Many are speculating he will pursue a career in politics and potentially seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. Schultz had previously denied any speculation around a role in government; but his recent comments suggest that “public service” will be a part of his future plans. Gold prices dipped below $1,300 per ounce as markets continue to speculate on the likelihood of additional interest rate hikes in 2018. We believe this is solid buying opportunity for investors. The reason why gold is going to get a nice boost: ongoing trade tensions between the United States and the rest of the globe.

Six analysts have issued estimates for Dave & Buster’s’ earnings, with estimates ranging from $320.19 million to $332.00 million.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Own For 2018

Bank of America’s (NYSE:BAC) shares suddenly dropped last week, slumping ~6 percent on Tuesday as investors rushed to sell financials and take profits in stocks that have soared since the U.S. election. Republicans also don’t appear to be able to score legislative victories as easily as investors thought, which raises concerns over the sustainability of the Trump rally.

Let’s first agree that Bank of America has been a very good investment already in the last several months, but especially over the last year. Believe it or not, but an investment in Bank of America has returned ~70 percent since March 28, 2016, outperforming other financial stocks as well as major stock market indices by a wide margin.

    Casual-dining chains have not been winners during this economic expansion. Millenials, with their need for more social media-worthy experiences, have been blamed for the decline in conjunction with Baby Boomers moving onto fixed incomes as they retire.

    Dave & Buster's Entertainment Inc (NASDAQ: PLAY) provides an eat, drink, play, and watch experience for consumers. This hybrid entertainment/dining experience has fared well since going public in 2012, attracting higher-income adults in the 21-39 age range.
    Poor same-store sales last quarter knocked the premium off the stock price, but top and bottom-line growth were still strong. Margins and efficiency ratios top its competitors, and Wall Street and quant valuation models agree that there is a strong upside for this diamond in the casual-dining rough.

    You'll Probably Want to Sit Down for This

    Casual dining, the traditional sit-down, full-service restaurant experience is getting hit by demographics. Millennials want hip, social-media worthy experiences and retiring Baby Boomers are thrifty on their fixed incomes. Headlines such as "Millennials Are Killing Chains Like Buffalo Wild Wings And Applebee's" are not uncommon.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Own For 2018: Sage Therapeutics, Inc.(SAGE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
