stock market latest news

LONDON–The North Sea oil grades that underpin the global Brent crude price benchmark have been expanded to address the region’s declining production, price reporting agency S&P Global Platts announced Monday.

Oil from the Troll field in the Norwegian part of the North Sea will be added to the basket of crude used to calculate the benchmark from 2018, Platts said.

The Brent crude price, based on four physical oil streams extracted from fields in the North Sea, is what the majority of the world’s physical crude is priced off.

The existing basket used to set the price includes Brent Ninian Blend, Forties, Oseberg and Ekofisk. The addition of Troll, a field operated by Norway’s Statoil ASA
STO, -0.73%
should increase deliverable supplies by around 20%. It will also mean Statoil overtakes Royal Dutch Shell PLC
RDSA
as the most dominant producer of the streams used to calculate the Brent price.

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

technical analysis stocks

Shares of Under Armour (UAA) have tumbled nearly 60% during the past 12 months as the once high-flying company slashed its expected growth rate. Under Armour is scheduled to report earnings tomorrow, however, and some investors are betting that the release will help turn things around for the company’s stock.

Jeff Schear/Getty Images for Under Armour

Don’t get your hopes up, write Canaccord Genuity analysts Camilo Lyon and Pallav Saini, who contend this won’t be the quarter Under Armour turns things around. They explain why:

The trifecta of headwinds that plagued UA last year (overexposure to sporting goods, overexposure to NA, and overexposure to performance apparel) has not abated, in our opinion. While UA is working to diversify its channel mix as evidenced by its recent entry into Kohl’s (KSS) (and forthcoming entry into DSW (DSW) and Famous Footwear later this year), our checks suggest the apparel segmentation efforts have fallen short of expectations. In addition, we are concerned about the lackluster trends in footwear (and Curry) as it is a key element to the growth story. Specifically, we believe the combination of a lack of newness/differentiation in the Curry 3 coupled with too many releases too soon at a higher price point ($140) resulted in tepid Q1 sales. The latest Curry 3Zero release at $120 appears to be doing modestly better. We highly regard the brand and its long-term growth prospects; however, the product and geographic diversification occurring now will take time to yield results. As such, we remain cautious on UA heading into its 1Q17 report on Thursday, April 27 BMO.

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2018

The staffing industry – and the IT staffing industry in particular – is poised for tremendous growth in the foreseeable future, and that rising tide bodes very well for Staffing 360 Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:STAF).

For those who’ve followed the sociopolitical rhetoric it would be easy to conclude what job growth we’ve seen in the past few years has been measly, made even less impressive by the fact most of the new jobs have been less-than-great-career types of jobs. And to be fair, there’s a kernel of truth in what the critics are saying. A closer inspection is merited though, because a closer look clarifies that some industries are seeing tremendous job growth. One of the hottest hot spots? You guessed it … IT jobs.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, software and developer positions will grow by 19% between 2014 and 2024, making it one of the nation’s fastest-growing non-medical career choices. When you broaden the data out to “computer and mathematical occupations”, the ten-year growth projection is 13.1%, which IS the second-highest growth pace among all jobs (second only to healthcare).

    Yes, you read that correct! General Motors (NYSE: GM) will probably not settle for just a new 52-week high and will aim to take out the 2013 peak of $41.85. With talks about the Opel sellout to PSA Group (OTCPK:PEUGF) (OTCPK:PUGOY) progressing at a rate much faster than I had anticipated, a (likely) deal announcement on Monday will pave the way for new all-time highs.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Own For 2018

Top Heal Care Stocks To Own For 2018: GTx Inc.(GTXI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    One biopharmaceutical player that’s rapidly moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade is GTx (GTXI), which is dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecules that selectively target hormone pathways to treat cancer, osteoporosis and bone loss, muscle loss and other serious medical condition. This stock has been hammered by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 53%.

    If you look at the chart for GTx, you’ll notice that this stock recently gapped down sharply from over $4 to below $1.50 a share with heavy downside volume. Following that gap down, shares of GTXI have rebounded sharply and started to uptrend, with the stock moving higher from its low of $1.31 to its recent high of $1.96 a share. During that move, shares of GTXI have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of GTXI within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GTXI if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $1.96 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 1.35 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GTXI will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from August that started just above $4 a share. Some possible upside targets if GTXI gets into that gap with volume are $2.50 to $3 a share, or possibly even $3.50 a share.

    Traders can look to buy GTXI off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support at $1.50 a share. One can also buy GTXI off strength once it takes out $1.96 a share with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Can the Trump Stock Rally Last?

Bob Rodriguez: Trump Might Be Acting; Huge Financial Crisis Still Looming

Why Former Reagan Official Stockman Sees a Huge Trump Correction

In Dan Ariely’s world, small changes can have a very big impact.

The behavioral economics expert and professor at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business is the maestro of the behavioral tweak. His skills, and those of other researchers and experts in fields ranging from public policy to product design, are put to practical use at his year-old Common Cents Lab. The financial decision-making research lab defines its mission as “Hacking human behavior, for good.” 

It brings to mind a mental trick financial planner and blogger Michael Kitces uses to stay focused on long-term saving. To become financially independent, his goal is to save the equivalent of his current annual spending — times 30. “When you’re shooting for lifestyle times 30, you constantly think about expenses that might affect your lifestyle,” he said, perhaps through lifestyle creep. 

top stock companies to invest in: International Business Machines Corporation(IBM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    International Business Machines (IBM) led the S&P 500 lower today after beating earnings forecasts but missing on revenue.

    Getty Images

    IBM dropped, while the S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 2,338.17.

    Barclays analysts Mark Moskowitz and Daniel Gaide contend that IBM’s earnings “suggest [a] turnaround might be elusive.” They explain why:

    The major Y/Y deterioration in gross margin, and IBMs dependence on discrete items to pad EPS, stand to frustrate investors. We highlighted last week that the stocks rally could come to an end as it is time to show progress on the turnaround. 1Q results did not deliver much progress and could signal that investors might have given IBM too much credit to deliver on its ambitious turnaround built around the cloud and cognitive. We recommend investors stay on the sideline.

    International Business Machines’ market capitalization fell to $152.5 billion today from $160.4 billion yesterday.

    The huge tailwinds Amazon has at present (as it rolls out its infrastructure) is the growth of its marketplaces and web division. Just look at how competitors such as Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT)and International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM)are building out their cloud infrastructure but still remain miles behind Amazon. Growth here is just beginning as more sectors are moving their entire business models to the cloud. Investors have no idea just how much work ( both from a commercial and personal standpoint) will be done on the cloud in the future. Amazon at present is in a prime position so expect growth rates to continue.

  • [By Jack Foley on] International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM)third quarter results illustrated that the company is finally getting close to revenue growth, which speaks volumes about the growth in its ‘strategic imperatives’ division. Nevertheless, growth in the segment (which now makes up 40% of revenues) has come at a cost and this is something Wall Street is noticing.
