    The U.S. markets are preparing for the eighth interest rate hike since 2015, and the Federal Reserve may not be done yet. Markets are weighing the possibility that the Fed may raise rates one more time this year (in December). The hikes come as the Fed is attempting to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. When Powell speaks this afternoon, expect a few questions about the impact of the trade war between the United States and China. Reporters will also likely want to know about geopolitical risks to the U.S. economy and how they might affect growth in a higher-interest-rate environment.

During his talk, Trump praised the U.S. economy and defended his administration’s actions this year on trade. Trump said that the United States will no longer endure “abuse” from other trade partners. The U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also said Tuesday that the U.S. is prepared to proceed on a new trade deal with Mexico without the participation of Canada. Oil prices are in focus after President Trump called out OPEC members before the U.N. on Tuesday.

Warren Buffett&s;s portfolio of stocks at Berkshire Hathaway has always contained a good number of insurance stocks. He likes them, always has.

Omaha&s;s most-famous investor started with his purchase of National Indemnity Company way back in 1967 and has continued since then with famous old names like GEICO and General Re, among many others.

If we imitate his methods, could we find success?

There&s;s no telling, but… one of the first steps in finding value is to see if the stock is trading at a low price/earnings ratio and if it can be purchased at a discount to book value.

Here are four insurance stocks that may fit as the type of value situation sought under the Buffett-like criteria he learned from Benjamin Graham:

&l;strong&g;AEGON N.V.&l;/strong&g; is a life insurance company based in the Netherlands and which trades on the New York Stock Exchange. With a price/earnings ratio of 5.4 and now priced at half its book value, it definitely looks like a value stock. The concern would be debt: There&s;s more of that than equity.

    In the years since oil prices plunged from their $100-plus per barrel levels of 2014, many energy industry stocks have struggled — but now, they may be set to rebound. Economic growth worldwide and Middle Eastern production cuts have resulted in a more than doubling of crude oil prices since early 2016; if they remain near current levels or head higher, now could be the perfect time to add Hess Corp. (NYSE:HES), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), and Core Labs (NYSE:CLB) to your portfolio.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018

JPMorgan’s Jamie Baker and Nishant Mani argue that “downside risk appears diminutive” in airlines like Delta Air Lines (DAL), Southwest Airlines (LUV), and American Airlines (AAL)–even if there’s a recession. They explain why:

Associated Press

Were over a year into fuels decline, and investor fears concerning a breakdown in discipline havent materialized. Planned capacity is tighter. Buybacks have been more aggressive than modeled. Dividends have grown. The march towards investment grade continues. Granted, fuel retention metrics vary by airline, labor rates are being reset, and RASM is uninspiring. But we can identify no structural reason for selected stocks to be trading at 6-8x P/E, other than the market disagreeing with the heft and/or persistence of our (and consensus) forecasts, which rise again today. Put differently, we believe the main concern standing between investors and heady potential gains in U.S. airline equities is uncertainty around a recession. For those believing neither the U.S. nor the world slips into recession this year, we strongly urge you to consider our Overweight-rated names. Alternatively, for those leaning towards a recessionary outcome, we similarly urge you to ponder the industrys expected earnings power, given the abundance of evidence supporting a downturn with margins that actually should rival those of prior, cyclical peaks.

    Times are tough for Ralph Lauren (RL). Profit and sales are fallingat theiconic clothingcompany, and investors who bet on a turnaround havelost their shirts on the stock. Adding to its troubles,CEO StefanLarsson is departingfollowing a creative clash with the companys namesake and founder.

    Pessimism, meanwhile, appears to be on the rise.

    According to a report by the financial analytics company S3 Partners, short interest in Ralph Lauren has risen since the start of the year, hitting historical levels. And while that short position is expected to keep expanding, bearish sentiments could turn on a dime.

    Ihor Dusaniwsky at S3 Partners writes:

    RL short interest levels, already at historical highs today, should continue to grow if the recent trend continues, but having made almost 23% in 2016 and 14% in 2017, short sellers may be quick to cover their positions and lock in profits if RLs stock price turns against them.

    Short interest in Ralph Lauren fell in 2016 as the stock price fella nd shorts covered positions, netting a return of 22.6%. So far this year, however, the short position as increased $226 million, or 38% to $815 million as of this morning, according to the S3 report.

    Its a profitable day for those short sellers. Todays 11% decline Ralph Laurens stock price on an $815 million short position has added $90 million to the short sellers collective bottom line.

    Ralph Lauren is down 11.5% in recent market actions to $77.26 a after earlier falling as low as $76.86 a share. Thats the lowest price for the stock since 2010.

    Nordstrom (JWN) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after getting downgraded at JPMorgan.

    Getty Images

    Nordstrom dropped 8.7% to $50.48 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.2% to 2,258.07.

    JPMorgan’s Matthew Boss and team explain why they cut Nordstrom to Underweight from Neutral today:

    Nordstroms top-line profile has moderated to low-to-mid single digits with mgmt citing tighter expense control as a near-term fix rather than long term model solution clarifying its mid-teens ROIC target as more an aspiration rather than near-term reality. Cutting FY18 EPS power to $3.00 (< Street at $3.27) based on flattish same-store sales the next two years (negative low-single digits Full-line offset by +LSD Rack) and modest SG&A deleverage (initial Manhattan pressure in FY17 building into FY18) partially offset by slight GPM expansion. With shares ofNordstrom up 57% the past 6 months (vs S&P 500 +13%), we downgrade to Underweight, lowering our price target to $48 based on 6.0x our 18 EBITDA (= 16.5x FY18 EPS).

    Nordstrom’s market capitalization fell to $8.8 today from $9.6 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $600 million on sales of $14.4 billion in fiscal 2016.

    Barron’s Johanna Bennett also panned Nordstrom today.

None is risk-free, particularly Nordstrom, which is in an extremely competitive industry. But all three offer dividend yields above 3% and a least a few reasons to be optimistic about the company.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks For 2018

In our view, shares of Qualcomm (QCOM – $54.24) were unfairly battered by short-sighted folks, notes Jason Clark, value investor and contributing editor to The Prudent Speculator.

The stock plunged as much as 14% in one day in response to the news that Apple (AAPL) filed a lawsuit accusing the semiconductor manufacturing firm of monopolizing the market for mobile phone chips and withholding $1 billion in rebates.

The timing of the filing was curious, as it seemed to piggyback on an FTC complaint filed on January 17 that charged the company with using anticompetitive tactics.

pple then filed another lawsuit in China over fees, requesting 1 billion yuan of damages ($145 million USD).Qualcomm General Counsel Don Rosenberg responded, While we are still in the process of reviewing the complaint in detail, it is quite clear that Apples claims are baseless.QCOM shares recovered some of the losses, but the progress turned out to be for naught after the companys fiscal Q1 2017 results release.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks For 2018: Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft (VLKAY)

    Last decennium, the popularity of both French Peugeot and Citro毛n has lost traction against that of German car manufacturers.

What a monumental month for EVs – matched with near-record global sales.

    Historically, FCA has been very strong in the small car sector in Europe. This continues with the Fiat “Panda” and Fiat 500 enjoying a market-dominating 29.4% share of the small car market. The diesel emissions scandal affecting traditional small car rival Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) has no doubt helped Fiat.
