    The year was 1999 and “internet” stocks were all the rage. On opposite sides of the country, two banks — BofI Holding (NASDAQ:BOFI) and First Internet Bancorp (NASDAQ:INBK)– were both betting on a business model of asset-light internet banking. Nearly two decades later, one of these banks has grown into a $2.6 billion force to be contended with, while the other lags behind with a market cap of less than $350 million.

    BofI(NASDAQ:BOFI) stock doesn’t fit anybody’s definition of “cheap.”

    To be more precise, it’s trading at 2.9 times tangible book value (TBV). That’s undeniably expensive for any bank; generally, you hope to see that ratio closer to 1.2 to 1.5 times TBV.

    Markets are cheering the jobs report, which easily topped expectations, this morning. In addition to a falling unemployment rate, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that U.S. hourly earnings increased by 0.3%. This report could provide the U.S. Federal Reserve with additional reasons to raise interest rates as concerns about inflation persist. The Fed has said it will raise interest rates two more times in 2018. However, the market has priced in a 30% chance that the Fed hikes rates three additional times. U.S. President Donald Trump has fired the opening rounds of a possible trade war. The United States hit the European Union, Canada, and Mexico with tariffs on steel and aluminum. Canada responded yesterday with retaliatory measures to target similar U.S. products. Crude oil prices fell Friday as markets continue to eye OPEC’s next move. According to reports, Saudi Arabia and Russia have discussed plans to increase total production by 1 million barrels per day. The uptick would aim to address falling production in Venezuela and U.S. sanctions in Iran. The rumors come as U.S. production is sitting at near-record highs and is rivaling the output of Russia. These factors are part of a wider list of issues that will only continue to press oil prices lower in the months ahead.

Best Energy Stocks For 2019

U.S. equities mostly finished lower on Wednesday as a breakdown in crude oil weighed on equities — resulting in the longest selloff since the election.

In the end, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 0.3%, the S&P 500 lost 0.2%, the Nasdaq Composite gained a fraction and the Russell 2000 lost 0.6%. Treasury bonds were weaker again, the dollar was stronger, gold lost 0.6% and oil was hit hard on a large U.S. inventory build pushing West Texas Intermediate down 5.4% to fresh lows for the year.

The crude carnage boosted the ProShares Ultra Short Crude (NYSEARCA:SCO) 10.4% for Edge subscribers as the United States Oil Fund LP (ETF) (NYSEARCA:USO) fell below its 200-day moving average for the first time since late November to end a four-month trading range.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Retail stocks are in focus after the U.S. Census Bureau released monthly sales figures before the bell Tuesday. The bureau said that retail sales increased by 0.3% in April, a figure that matched trade expectations. Markets had expected consumer spending to increase, however home improvement sales were not the major factor that most expected. This was evident from The Home Depot’s earnings report. Markets are increasingly optimistic over U.S. trade negotiations with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No. 1 economic advisor will visit the United States this week to continue the nation’s dialogue with America. In addition, roughly 100 companies and trade associations will be sounding off to the Trump administration about the potential impact of tariffs in the Chinese markets.

    Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) is in focus thanks to tax policy in Seattle. On Monday, the Seattle’s City Council passed a bill that will tax Amazon and 131 other companies $275 per employee each year in order to create a fund to address homelessness in the Seattle. The tax is half what was originally proposed and remains a contentious issue for Amazon, which is the city’s biggest employer. Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) is sounding the alarm about the state of the markets. The company warned that the U.S. budget deficit is increasing while America’s unemployment rate is falling. This hasn’t occurred since the World War II. The bank believes that the combination of the two could cause the Fed to spike interest rates in the near future. This comes at a time when the Fed has already lost control of interest rates. Look for additional earnings reports from Eagle Materials Inc.

Top 5 Gold Stocks To Invest In 2018

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss

The Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF ticker symbol is BATS: COIN.

The Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust – the exchange-traded fund’s formal name – announced the COIN symbol in the fourth amendment to its S-1 filing in July 2014. At the time, the Winklevoss ETF planned to trade on the Nasdaq exchange.

“COIN” refers of course to “Bitcoin,” the digital currency upon which the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF is based. The choice of ticker symbol mimics that of the SPDR Gold Trust (NYSE Arca: GLD), which simply dropped the vowel from the word “gold.”

That shift to the Bats BZX Exchange was made known in the fifth amendment to the S-1, filed in July 2016. That’s how we arrived at BATS: COIN as the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF ticker symbol.

After working for most of her life, Dante had planned on retiring, but her plans have changed. A financial advisor explained that she should be more aggressive in her investments approximately 2 1/2 years ago. Dante has since lost most of her retirement nest egg and must now get a job to continue to support herself. Like Anita Dante, many people around the U.S., who are reaching retirement age, are having to rethink their strategy with investments plummeting and 401 (k) saving plans shrinking.

As the nation anticipates President Donald Trump’s first budget, which will inevitably detail tax measures that will take a hit, new research by the Investment Company Institute finds that Americans value the current tax incentives for retirement saving and “overwhelmingly” oppose changing them.

ICI, a trade group for mutual funds and ETFs, reports that U.S. households favor preserving retirement account features and flexibility, with 89% of all US households disagreeing with the statement that the government should take away the tax advantages of defined contribution accounts, and 90% voting against the idea of reducing the amount that individuals can contribute to DC accounts.

Top 10 Stocks To Invest In 2018: athenahealth, Inc.(ATHN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Athenahealth (ATHN) last night announced that its CFO and administrative chief, Kristi Matus, would be leaving the company. Her departure has not been embraced by investors, who have pushed shares lower today. Leerink’s David Larsen understands their concerns:

    In our view, the CFO departure may be indicative of internal operational challenges. We still think it is possible that Kristi Matus is seeking an environment that is not as demanding as ATHN, though this has not been confirmed by management. Management harped on the point that bifurcation is part of the strategic initiative of ATHN to reenergize the culture of the company, and Jonathan Bush noted how he himself hopes to spend more time on talent and culture and less time on entering new markets and building new products.

    We continue to believe that ATHN is facing challenges. We continue to believe the market is fundamentally slowing and bookings growth may become more lumpy as we progress through 2016. We still believe there will be a slow-down in the bookings growth rate b/c of a possible slow-down in the ambulatory EMR market and the fact that we are in the final payment year of Meaningful Use. Much of the call focused on Kristi Matus’s departure as a major loss for the company of a leader who was “masterful with investors.” According to management, the decision to split the CFO and CFAO responsibilities was not a reflection of her ability.

    Baird’s Matthew Gillmor and Sean McBride are less worried:

    The unexpected resignation of CFO Kristi Matus is disappointing, but the reasons for her departure seem somewhat understandable, in our view (potentially viewed bifurcation of CFO/CAO role as a demotion). We think incoming CFO Karl Stubelis is very strong and should provide helpful continuity, both internally and externally (currently serves as Controller and previously as acting CFO). Finally, the CFO change does not change our positive long-term thesi

    Shares of Athena Health (ATHN) are up 37% in just over a month. Is there still more room to run?

    Cramer said for years Athena had been a fast-growing stock, but as the company transitioned from growth to profitability, things began to get ugly. The company’s bombastic CEO, and his “colorful” personality began to rub shareholders the wrong way.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Meanwhile, earnings season continued to play out, and although the technology industry saw some extremely encouraging reports, not all stocks participated in the rally. Athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN), Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF), and Time (NYSE:TIME) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    Under a single-payer system, healthcare becomes a regulated utility much like electricity with just a few large, best-in-class players. Athenahealth (Nasdaq: ATHN) could combine with Walgreen Boots Alliance (NYSE: WBA). Maybe each monolith will cover a specific region like Southern Company (NYSE: SO) and Consolidated Edison (NYSE: ED).

Markets have responded to the Summers announcement by soaring skyward, apparently feeling relief and confidence about the fate of the taper.
