Top 10 China Stocks For 2018

One of China’s biggest tech companies says it needs to step up efforts to win over US intelligence agencies.

ZTE, which makes smartphones and builds mobile networks, must make “more effort to build the trust among the people in Washington,” said Lixin Cheng, CEO of the company’s mobile devices business. “We need to do more.”

Top officials from the FBI, CIA and NSA testified before Congress this month that ZTE and Huawei, another Chinese smartphone maker, pose a security threat to American customers.

“We understand the concerns, and respect the concerns of different agencies of the United States government,” Cheng said in an interview with CNN’s Kristie Lu Stout at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. “We promise we are going to work very openly, as we did before, [and] transparently to address their needs and their concerns.”

Those concerns include the risk of letting companies “beholden to foreign governments” inside the US telecommunications infrastructure, FBI Director Chris Wray testified.

Top 10 China Stocks For 2018

Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) management and the car company’s new initiatives have been nearly ubiquitous the past few days. First with the goal of a fully autonomous car by 2021. Then the shifting of small car production to Mexico (which Donald Trump did not like). Also, a rock star video of company management. The markets have not been impressed. Ford’s shares have dropped over 4% in the five days, and 14% year to date (the S&P is up over 4% for the same period).

The reason for the drop is anxiety about Ford’s present, and the fact that its future endeavors look like those of many other large global manufacturers. Ford’s U.S. sales are up only 1.7% so far this year to 1,773,849. Ford brand car sales are down 11.3% to 478,777 for the same period. There is rising evidence that the recently red-hot American market has peaked.

Ford’s position in Europe is a very modest 6.6% of the EU market, and is not gaining. China is the world’s largest car market. Ford lags badly there well behind GM and Volkswagen. Ford’s market share is pegged below 4% well behind the two market leaders each of which has almost 15%. Every large car company is devoting substantial investment to catch pieces of the Chinese market. In the meantime, the growth of car sales in the country appears to have slowed.

Best Stocks To Own For 2018

Shares of Baker Hughes (BHI) had dropped 6.6% during the first three days of the week after the announcement that it would join forces with General Electric‘s (GE) oil & gas business. Today, however, they’ve rebounded, perhaps suggesting that investors are coming around to the long-term prospects of the deal. In a note released yesterday, FBR’s Thomas Curran and Mark Kelley explain what those are:

Bloomberg News

Since October 28, 2016, as a correction in oil has stoked the latest retreat in OFS stocks,Baker Hughes has underperformed. Given that both sides of the Street seem to perceive de minimis regulatory risk to deal consummation, we believe Baker Hughes’ sell-off chiefly reflects stock participants’ evaluation of the (1) reshaping ofBaker Hughes’ risk-reward profile and (2) potential of the merged entity. With this deal, we believeBaker Hughes essentially chose to forego pre-2019 optionality that could have yielded more 20172018 upsidesuch as insisting on a takeover premium from General Electric, pursuing other M&A possibilities, or remaining solely focused on its flourishing transformation in exchange for a post-2018 with greater potential. Although we do expect Baker Hughes’ trade-off to eventually be vindicated, the deal has also reinforced our existing 2018-based valuation, in our view, capping the stock at $62 for the next 912 months. Baker Hughes’ 8% decline has also reduced the merged entity’s implied enterprise value by 11%. We think investors are also signaling skepticism about guidance for the merged entity, especially for GE Oil & Gas….

Best Stocks To Own For 2018: 8point3 Energy Partners LP(CAFD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

     We highlight CAFD as our top income oriented pick, a relatively safer, more conservatively-run company within our YieldCo coverage. The stock is yielding 7.5% on a FY16E DPS basis, and provides predictable income over the next several years, regardless of new projects beyond the initial portfolio. With two of the strongest companies in the solar industry serving as sponsors, enough liquidity on the balance sheet to fund growth-projects through mid-2016, and additional levers to pull in order to grow DPS if needed (e.g. payout ratio), we believe CAFD is undervalued.

20 Best & Worst States for Elder Care

A strengthening world economy and rising corporate confidence pushed global dividends to a new high in 2017, according to the Janus Henderson Global Dividend Index.

Janus Henderson recently released its February 2018 edition of the Janus Henderson Global Dividend Index. Each year Janus analyzes dividends paid by the 1,200 largest firms by market capitalization (as of Dec. 31 before the start of each year).

Global dividends rose 7.7% on a headline basis — the fastest rate of growth since 2014 — and reached a total of more than $1.2 trillion.

Records were broken in 11 of the index’s 41 countries, including the United States, Japan, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Netherlands. Every region saw an increase, according to the report.

“With all three of the largest economies in the world, the U.S., EU and China, expanding at the same time, companies are seeing rising profits, and healthy cash flows, enabling them to fund generous dividends,” the report states.
