Top 10 Casino Stocks For 2021

The letter of the law allows slightly more than $11 million per person to be passed to kids or other noncharitable heirs free of federal gift or estate tax. But by employing aggressive techniques, New Jersey estate lawyer Martin Shenkman figures, a couple could use their combined $22 million tax exemption to transfer more than a quarter-billion of assets into an irrevocable dynasty trust, where that wealth can continue to grow and pass, estate-tax-free, to an unlimited number of future generations. &q;This is phenomenal. The numbers are beyond comprehension,&q; says Shenkman. Is this legally risky? Less so than it used to be. In October, Trump&s;s Treasury withdrew proposed Obama-era regulations cracking down on certain of these aggressive techniques, which, when done right, have been upheld by the courts.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018: Exelon Corporation(EXC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Horizon Investments]

    For the past year, Exelon Corp. (EXC) has had a roller coaster ride, with the stock having plummeted 15% since September 2012 – the company had announced a dividend cut of 41%, which led to a drop in the share price. Separately, the recent weak PJM auction prices did not bode well for the company. However, I believe the worst is priced in the stock price, and the company’s management is committed to improving its financial flexibility and cost structure in order to strengthen its financial performance. Also, the company is planning to incur capital expenditure (CAPEX) in the upcoming years, which will result in rate base growth for Exelon.

share market today

Chinas cloud computing market size is expected to grow to 430 billion yuan ($64.68 billion by 2019). Technavio also estimates that the data center industry of China is growing at a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 13%. Im not surprised that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is pushing hard its latest EPYC server processors for Chinas fast-growing cloud computing/data center market.

Ever since 2005, China has been the worlds largest market for semiconductor products. EPYCs future contribution to AMDs top-line and bottom-line growth wont be complete if it doesnt make an impact on Chinas server/datacenter hardware infrastructure. It will be AMDs new x86 processors, not ARM-based SoCs, which have the best chance to hurt Intels (INTC) lucrative server business. China is also the country which contributes the most revenue to Intel.

As per AnandTech, AMDs EPYC processors are more affordable (based on core-count/price ratio) than Intels Xeon products. Im part Chinese; so I understand Chinas data center operators will most likely appreciate AMDs lower-than-Xeon pricing strategy for EPYC.

    The other producing lithium miners, and soon to be producers. I have discussed these previously in detail here, here and here. Needless to say, the top 3 producers are non-pure plays (SQM (NYSE:SQM), Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), and FMC Corp. (NYSE:FMC)). The top pure play currently producing miners are Orocobre (ASX:ORE) (OTCPK:OROCF), Tianqi Lithium (SHE:002466), Jiangxi Ganfeng Lithium, Galaxy Resources, Mineral Resources [ASX:MIN] (OTC:MALRF), and Neometals [ASX:NMT] (OTC:RRSSF). The near-term producers include Altura Mining [ASX:AJM] (OTCPK:ALTAF), Pilbara Minerals (ASX:PLS) (OTC:PILBF), Kidman Resources (ASX:KDR), Critical Elements, Nemaska Lithium (OTCQX:NMKEF) [TSX:NMX], Lithium Americas (OTCQX:LACDF) [TSX:LAC], Lithium X (OTCQX:LIXXF) (TSXV:LIX), Neo Lithium, and Bacanora Minerals (OTC:BCRMF) [TSXV:BCN], Advantage Lithium (OTCQB:AVLIF) [AAL], European Metals (OTCPK:MNTCF, ASX:EMH, AIM:EMH) and Pure Energy (OTCQB:PEMIF) [PE].

    Still, reading between the lines, it’s been clear which names he has liked over the months and years. Lithium Americas (OTCQX:LACDF) and SQM (NYSE:SQM) are prime examples. Consider that LAC shares have more than doubled from an early July low of C$0.78 (it closed at C$1.70 on Sept. 15th) when rumblings suggested that SQM might not move forward on the LAC/SQM Cauchari-Olaroz project. Joe was among the first to squash those rumors, setting up what turned out to be a highly profitable buying opportunity. SQM is up 120% in the past 12 months (by comparison, the Global X Lithium ETF (LIT) is up 54%, and the S&P 500 Index is up 16%).

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Tony Tribble, Invision/AP
    Forget about Bloomin’ Onions or boneless wings, for many consumers, the choice of where to dine often comes down to a different factor: which restaurant has the best booze.
    “Alcoholic beverages can be a key driver of traffic, differentiation, and loyalty,” said David Decker, president of Consumer Edge Insight. According to the firm, two factors that keep customers coming back are “selection” and “pricing.”
    Consumer Edge Insight recently surveyed restaurant customers to find out which casual-dining spots generated the most loyalty with their alcoholic beverages.
    Taking the top spot for “selection” was Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), with 29 percent of those surveyed saying they were “most likely to visit it most often due to its good selection of alcoholic beverages.”
    Applebee’s (DIN) took the second spot, with 24 percent, and Outback Steakhouse (BLMN) and T.G.I. Friday’s tied for third place with 22 percent each.
    Prices also keep customers coming back to Buffalo Wild Wings.

    When asked which casual-dining brand they were “most likely to visit most often due to its good prices of alcoholic beverages,” Buffalo Wild Wings came out on top with 30 percent. Chili’s (EAT) was No. 2 at 23 percent, and Ruby Tuesday (RT) was third with 22 percent.
    Buffalo Wild Wings has always made alcohol a part of its experience, even making it part of its tagline: “Wings.Beer.Sports.”
    The chain is the No. 1 account for more than 50 different beer brands and recently launched Game Changer, a new beer in a partnership with Redhook Brewery. Priced between cheaper domestic lagers and pricier craft beers, Game Changer became the fourth-most-popular draft beer at company-owned locations within two weeks of its release.
    “Among casual-dining restaurants, Buffalo Wild Wings is seeing the greatest positive effect in terms of building customer loyalty with its alcohol offerings,” Decker said. “There are many steps other restaurants can take to improve their alcoho

The stock market dropped significantly on Sep 9, only to bounce back yesterday. Such volatility is the result of the Fed’s ambiguous stance regarding monetary tightening measures. To top it, profit expectations are down for this year, while stocks remain overvalued.

We are also heading toward the presidential elections, which may lead to a correction. Hence, in order to safeguard one’s portfolio from such uncertainties, we advise investors to bet on low beta mutual funds.

Markets on a Topsy-Turvy Ride

U.S. stocks suffered their worst decline on Sep 9 since the U.K.’s decision to exit the European Union, with all 30 blue-chip companies closing in the red and all 10 sectors of the S&P 500 ending in the negative territory. Rout in equities had pushed both the Dow and the S&P 500 below their 50-day moving averages. One the other hand, both the indices closed more than 1% higher on Monday, with more stocks advancing rather than declining. About 70% stocks advanced on the NYSE, while 27% declined.

    If you’re not comfortable with a single stock, I understand. In that case, consider a regional banking ETF like iShares U.S. Regional Banks ETF (NYSEArca:IAT), which holds positions in 54 regional banks around the country. You won’t get quite the pop of an individual acquisition but, chances are, you won’t lose out either.

best stock for investment: Charter Communications, Inc.(CHTR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Andrew Tonner]

    As one of the group of companies associated with telecom magnate John Malone — who regularly uses complex, tax-efficient corporate transactions to unlock value for shareholders — Liberty Broadband serves as a holding company that controls a diverse set of media assets. The most important of these is Liberty Broadband’s ownership of 25% of Charter Communications’ (NASDAQ:CHTR) total voting power, which effectively makes Liberty Broadband a tracking stock for Charter Communications shares.As such, Liberty Broadband shares have largely mirrored the impressive rally in Charter Communications stock over the past year. Particularly given Charter’s upcoming launch of its own wireless service network, Soros’ investment in Liberty Broadband remains an interesting option as the cable and telecom industries continue to evolve.

    SoftBank also purchased telecom upstart Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) in 2013. And it is considering deals with other communications giants, including Charter Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: CHTR) and T-Mobile U.S. Inc. (Nasdaq: TMUS)

  • [By Matt Hogan]

    It has been widely reported that T-Mobile US Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) had been in merger talks with Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S), a competitor that is majority owned by Softbank. However, these talks are now on hold as Sprint is negotiating potential deals with two of the largest cable companies in the United States; Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) and Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR). These cable companies are under pressure having lost subscribers due to services like Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), which recently blew away its second quarter growth estimates.

    It was just a little more than a year ago when Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) was the largest U.S. pay-TV provider. And it wasn’t even close. But after AT&T (NYSE:T) merged with DirecTV, it took over the top spot. Now, AT&T’s rival telecom company, Verizon (NYSE:VZ), is reportedly considering a megamerger of its own with Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR). The move would put the combined company’s total video subscriber count very close to Comcast’s.

    The potential merger points to a big hole in Comcast’s service offerings — its lack of wireless service. If customers can save money by bundling their TV, internet, and wireless bills together with its competitors, Comcast stands to lose customers. But Comcast’s management and investors shouldn’t lose sleep over the possibility that its two biggest competitors offer wireless service.

Hot China Stocks For 2018

Instagram launches live video and disappearing messages Snapchat may be banned in China, but that isn’t stopping the messaging app’s parent company from building a toehold in the world’s most populous country.

Snap Inc. says it has opened a technology office in the southern city of Shenzhen to focus on Spectacles, the startup’s camera-equipped sunglasses that can send footage to users’ Snapchat accounts.

Spectacles are already assembled in China, but the new office, which already employs about 20 people, is working on research and development. The devices are Snap’s first foray into hardware, using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to connect with people’s phones.

Snap says it has more than 1,500 employees around the world, with the majority of its product design and engineering efforts in the company’s Los Angeles headquarters.
