Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now: United Natural Foods, Inc.(UNFI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

To those who are following my articles for AT&T (NYSE:T), a company I have been long for a couple years now, I apologize for not coming out with a more timely article for second-quarter results. In any case, AT&T did report its second quarter earnings about a month ago. In my last article on AT&T, written July 25th, I said that it just wasn’t yet time to sell shares. At the time shares were at $43.11, and I intended to consider selling half my remaining shares $44 per share or higher. Shares had been grinding higher since January, and so I felt that I’d get another chance to sell at $44 soon enough.
