    By looking through his previous success stories like Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), American Express (NYSE: AXP), and Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), it is clear that Buffett carefully examines a company’s balance sheet, and prefers to invest in those with relatively modest debt burdens.

JPMorgan Chase posted an excellent second quarter, including the excellent trading revenue performance.

Workday’s kaleidoscope: The patterns are less pleasing.

It is not uncommon to hear people referring to glasses half full or some equivalent locution. The poor phrase has become over-worked and needs some R&R. Occasionally I break down and use the phrase myself as a convenient shorthand. But if you were a person dying of thirst in the desert, the amount of water that Workday (NYSE:WDAY) was able to serve would just not get you to the next oasis. The company could have used a thimble for the amount of water that was presented to investors and still had space left over.

I think before proceeding much further it would be well for me to state that I believe the current WDAY share price compression (17% this morning as I wrote this and 12.5% at the close) is one that can be used successfully to establish positions. Technically, I believe, the shares can reach what is called a break-away gap at the $65 range. The shares have lost 26% of their value since the high they set in October. They are now down 15% YTD. The decline in the share price is completely understandable and reflects what was said by management as to their shorter-term expectations. Guidance at the least is a stumble in terms of communications and at most represents a modest issue with the cadence of the acceptance of the company’s financial applications suite. But there is nothing to suggest that it was more than that and the opportunities the company have and its ability to execute have not been altered by its current forecast.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    However, Canada becoming the first developed country in the world to legalize adult-use cannabis is far from the only “marijuana first” we’ve witnessed this year. In February, Canadian weed investment company Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), which has three core assets, announced that it was becoming the first Canadian pot stock to uplist to the Nasdaq (NASDAQ:NDAQ). Moving from the over-the-counter (OTC) exchange to a more reputable exchange like the Nasdaq allowed for improved liquidity, as well as cleared the way for institutional investors to take a position in Cronos Group.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

To those who are following my articles for AT&T (NYSE:T), a company I have been long for a couple years now, I apologize for not coming out with a more timely article for second-quarter results. In any case, AT&T did report its second quarter earnings about a month ago. In my last article on AT&T, written July 25th, I said that it just wasn’t yet time to sell shares. At the time shares were at $43.11, and I intended to consider selling half my remaining shares $44 per share or higher. Shares had been grinding higher since January, and so I felt that I’d get another chance to sell at $44 soon enough.
