Former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank Vice President Jerry O’Driscoll offered some choice words for the U.S. central bank. In an interview with CNBC, O’Driscoll warned that the Fed is being “very aggressive” with interest rate policy in 2018.

Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

On the lookout for safe dividends? (Who isn’t, right?)

Treasuries are considered the safest of that group, and large-cap stocks the riskiest, but they’re still much safer than plenty of other investments, such as small caps and junk bonds.

I’ll show you two low-risk investments that are great buys now in a moment. But first, I want to tell you why recent events have called the safety of some of the options I just named into question.

Let’s start by looking at the following chart:

“Safe” Assets Turn Volatile

First, note how the iShares S&P National AMT-Free Municipal Bond Fund (MUB), a good proxy for municipal bonds as a whole, is the least volatile of the three funds shown above. But right now, it faces a steep downturn relative to its earlier stability.

Wall Street analysts say this indicator tells when the next stock market crash is coming…

Marko Kolanovic, a quantitative analyst at JPMorgan, told CNBC on July 27 that low volatility could be a sign of a coming downturn in stocks. Wall Street’s fear gauge, the VIX, was at 10.11 on July 27, more than 20% below its historical average.

Because low volatility is unlikely to last forever, it could mean a market correction, or even a market crash, is coming next.

While we aren’t making a stock market crash prediction, investors are always wise to prepare for the worst. And there are some other market crash warning signs to pay attention to…

Top High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Terra Nitrogen Company L.P.(TNH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Robert Rapier] While the MLP space is dominated by the oil and gas sector, in last week’s article we began to explore some of the more exotic master limited partnership offerings. This week we continue our exploration of nontraditional MLPs by looking at the partnerships supplying fertilizer.

    Rentech (Nasdaq: RTK) has been around for more than a decade, and it has shifted strategies several times. Full disclosure: Rentech’s Chief Technology Officer Harold Wright is a former manager of mine when we were both at ConocoPhillips, and I have visited Rentech’s facility in Commerce City, Colorado.

    For most of Rentech’s existence, the company has sought to commercialize alternative fuels. At one time it had ambitions to build a large coal-to-liquids (CTL) plant, but federal legislation ultimately nudged it instead into the biomass-to-liquids (BTL) space. The company did build a BTL demonstration plant, but ultimately shut it down and has now refocused its efforts on becoming “one of the largest wood processing companies in the world.”

    During its interesting journey as a company, Rentech acquired two ammonia nitrogen fertilizer facilities, which turned out to be a profit center that funded the alternative energy research. In November 2011, Rentech spun off this fertilizer business into an MLP called Rentech Nitrogen Partners LP (NYSE: RNF).

    In the months leading to the spin-off, RTK’s market capitalization was about $200 million. Rentech maintained 60 percent ownership of RNF, and three months after the spin-off RTK’s market cap had risen to $400 million, while investors had bid RNF up to $1 billion. Interestingly, RTK’s share of RNF was worth more than RTK’s entire market cap, a situation that persists. The market currently values Rentech at $482 million, while the valuation of Rentech Nitrogen Partners makes RTK’s 60 percent stake in RNF worth slightly more than $600 million — another illu

Top High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Maximus, Inc.(MMS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Analysts at Jefferies initiated coverage on business process services provider Maximus Inc. (MMS) late on Thursday, giving the stock a bullish rating because it has several competitive advantages and should benefit from the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

    The analysts rate MMS as “Buy” and see shares reaching $47. This price target suggests a 20% upside to the stock’s Thursday closing price of $39.14.

    “MMS is a leading government outsourced contractor that produces consistently strong results,” Jefferies analyst David Styblo commented. “The company has several competitive advantages and is highly focused on health and human service projects. This positions MMS to enjoy multi-year growth from the ACA and other opportunities with limited risk. The company’s predictable business model, solid balance sheet, and EPS visibility into FY2014 also support a Buy and $47 PT.”

    Maximus shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 23.83% year-to-date.

    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.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018

With the holiday season around the corner,consumers are busy searching for the products to buy while investors are busy searching for the companies whose products consumers are buying. Just a couple of week back GoPro (NSDQ:GPRO) was one such company on which investors were willing to bet as its products were likely to fly off the shelves of retail outlets. But then the things changed. While GoPro’s flagship Hero 5 camera continues to enjoy strong demand, same can’t be said for its stock. The stock has tanked 30% in last one month due to multiple reasons, and many investors don’t see any future prospect for the company.But there are also investors who feel that GoPro stock has over corrected. So the question is whether GoPro stock is a value trap or a value buy?

Lower Multiples, But Cheaper Valuations?

The recent crash in GoPro’s stock price has brought the valuation multiples to the ground. GoPro’s PS ratio has declined from 2.2 in early October to 1.3 as of Friday. GoPro is currently trading at a market capof $1.41 billion (50% down in last one year) and analysts expect GoPro’s 2017 revenue to come in at $1.46 billion, giving it a forward PS of less than one.Many investors consider such low multiples as an attractive buying opportunity. But what investors must keep in mind is that lower multiples don’t automatically meancheaper valuations. A stock can have lower valuations than its peers and even its historical average and still remain expensive. There are analysts who are pointing to the fact that two years back GoPro was having similar revenue as of today but was trading at $50 a share and concluding that the stock is undervalued now. But I think the stock was overvalued then. Also, the narrative in the past two years has changed, for the worse.

    Airlines like United Continental (UAL), Alaska Air Group (ALK) and JetBlue Airways (JBLU) have been so cheap for so long now, that making an argument for big gains based solely on valuation seems remarkably foolish.

The data center segment which also constitutes AI chips revenue is continuing its extraordinary triple-digit growth rate. We at Amigobulls have highlighted the importance of NVIDIA’s AI credentials in our past coverage. Now, its AI credentials have gotten even stronger with IBM (NYSE:IBM) Power9 chip built for AI and machine learning. This chip has been built in partnership with theJensen Huang led company and makes use of NVIDIA’s latest Tesla V100 Volta chips.
