Jack Ma: President Trump must work with China Alibaba is back on a U.S. government naughty list, and the Chinese company is suggesting politics might be to blame.

The U.S. Trade Representative said Wednesday that the e-commerce giant’s main consumer site allows the sale of an “unacceptably high” level of fake goods.

It restored the site, Taobao.com, to its “Notorious Markets” blacklist just four years after taking it off. As well as warning about the large amounts of counterfeit and pirated goods on Taobao, the agency reported a range of obstacles that brands face in efforts to have knockoffs removed from the site.

Alibaba (BABA, Tech30) said it was disappointed by the U.S. move, pointing to the the work it has done to combat counterfeiters.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

Ascendis Pharma (NASDAQ:ASND) caught my eye earlier this year when I was looking at quarterly ownership changes of biotech-focused hedge funds. Many funds were aggressively buying Ascendis over the last few quarters, and the stock is a high conviction name for at least a few of them. However, the stock was up more than 50% at that point, and I decided to put it aside as there were no material catalysts during most of 2017 and wait for some form of a consolidation or a pullback before doing more research. The stock was in consolidation mode for more than six months and broke out in late September following the failure of one of its main competitors in the growth hormone deficiency market. I was actually expecting to pick up shares cheaper after the success of Versartis phase 3 trial but the opposite happened. However, I think Ascendis is a better buy after a 20%+ rally, then it would be on a 15-20% pullback in the case Versartis somavaratan was successful as I believe the market cap gain does not fully reflect the elimination of a competing product which would have had a one-year head-start over Ascendis TransCon hGH.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news. The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.

Financial stress during the holidays isn’t limited to overspending on gifts. Too often, stress builds after those extended visits with family where you start wondering just what’s happening with Mom and Dad’s cash.

As we host holiday dinners or visit more frequently with elderly parents and relatives, sometimes we spot signs that a loved one’s financial decision-making has been declining.

Maybe it’s constant talk about winning the lottery. Maybe it’s a garage full of unopened boxes from QVC. Maybe it’s a much smaller checking account balance than you’d expect for retirees who have a fairly good pension.

“You don’t have to reach the level of dementia before your financial decision-making is impacted,” said Peter A. Lichtenberg, director of the Institute of Gerontology at Wayne State University in Detroit.

    First Harvest Corp (OTC: HVST), acquired Cannavoices, Inc., a developer of cannabis-focused mobile games and social media platforms.

    "A trend we've seen developing slowly but steadily [is one] wherenew channels are being developed to reach cannabis consumers, primarily due to limits in advertising. There is so much regulation in the space that, in such an entrepreneurial environment where there are really no incumbent leaders, people are trying to be creative and figuring out ways to reach the cannabis consumer, both as an undeserved demographic and, just one that has still got that taboo around it, [leading] to larger players not necessarily getting involved yet." "Basically, they are trying to figure out ways to reach the consumer without direct TV advertising and stuff like that.”

    The stock market continued to climb sharply on Wednesday, sending major market benchmarks to record highs yet again and propelling the Dow Jones Industrials up more than 100 points.
