Your financial life can be divided into two phases: accumulation and distribution. The accumulation phase is when you are earning money, building up your savings in preparation for retirement. This phase begins when you start earning an income and ends when you retire. The distribution phase comes after you retire and you start living on the savings you compiled during the accumulation phase. 

The two phases are like climbing a mountain. On the way up – accumulation – your sole focus is reaching the top (the point of retirement). Once you’re standing on the peak, your focus shifts to safely reaching the bottom – the distribution phase. 

Reaching the top of a mountain is worth celebrating, but if you don’t know how to get back down, you could be in big trouble.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Beta Should Lead At The Start of A Rally: Best ideas in the first leg up: Marathon Oil, Devon Energy (DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Continental Resources (CLR). If OPEC announces a cut, whether moderate or deep, we expect that in the initial move up, moderate value beta names, like Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, andContinental Resources will lead.For a $5 increase in oil prices, we estimate 2017 cash flow per share would increase 12-18% for these stocks vs. the remainder of the group at 12%. Of these four, short interest is modest for all exceptContinental Resources at 25%, among the highest in our universe. Outperformance of these names should be driven by investors adding to long positions, not short covering.

Will Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT)deliver an earnings beat when it reports its Q3 earnings on April 27th?

Windows OS makerMicrosoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is scheduled to report its Q3 2017 earnings on April 27th, after the bell. Analysts have anaverage earnings estimate of $0.70 Non-GAAP EPS on revenue of $23.62B. The Redmond, Washington-based tech giant is an old name, but has been out of favor with investors in the recent past. However, Microsoft is back in limelight after its decent double-digit gains in 2016. Microsoft shares have risen by an impressive 30% in the last 12 months, under the leadership of Satya Nadella. The software giant’s stock closed at an all-time high of $67.53 in yesterday’s (April 24) trade. The stock has remained mostly flat after its post Q2 earning gainsbut has gathered significant momentum ahead of Q3 earnings leading to new all-time highs. Shares of the tech behemoth have risen by more than 3% in the last five trading sessions with YTD gains of 8.7%. Microsoft shares are known to make big moves after announcing earnings. So, the question now is whether MSFT stock will maintain its strong momentum after its earnings report. Is MSFT stock a good buy at it’s all time highs, just ahead of earnings?

It might be that another similar shock to housing is not necessarily around the corner and therefore they could sustain this in the foreseeable future.

In its annual mobile apps survey, Research firm Gartner predicted that by 2019 virtual assistants will account for 20% of all smartphone interactions. With that level of user engagement, predictably all of the largest technology companies are invested in the segment and each brings a different strength to the field.

Amazon

Many media reports are calling Amazon’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Alexa the hit of the Consumer Electronics Show. In 2015, Amazon made a skills kit available to developers that allowed partners to incorporate voice commands. Fast forward to 2017 and Alexa can integrate with an estimated 5,000 third-party apps, from refrigerators to TV’s, from cars to vacuums, and lest we forget, the Echo smart home speaker. The novelty of this device made it among the top selling items on Amazon’s website during the holidays. This was a brilliant strategic move by a company without a smartphone as an installed base. Amazon does, however, have a roster of well-known companies in its corner including Ford, Samsung and LG to name a few. In addition to product integration, Alexa can be found in a dizzying number of bots that can order a pizza from Domino’s, schedule an Uber, or check your Capital One balance. This gives Amazon the early lead in terms of reach and momentum, but the lack of a mobile device means that challenges remain.

    The market is treating Chipotle as if it is an Amazon, Tesla, Apple or Google, when in fact all they do is make burritos. With the money it would cost you to buy Chipotle today @ $14 billion dollars you could buy Wendy’s (WEN), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Papa John’s International (PZZA), and Dunkin’ Brands (DNKN). Chipotle would need to generate at least $24 in earnings per share in order to justify the current market cap — they are not even expected to generate half of that next year. Chipotle is expected to report Q1 on April 25 and the market, in my opinion, has already more than priced in good news.

    Keurigs plight (actually, JABs) is worsening, with the K-cup market slowing to almost no growth now, and Keurig continuing to lose own brands share. Starbucks (SBUX) echoed the notion of a K-cup market slowdown at its seminar on Wednesday (and is guiding for its [consumer packaged goods, or CPG,] growth below recent trends), but it expects to increase its share of total CPG coffee to 20% from 15%. Come early February it will be a year since the closing of the Keurig deal for JAB Holdings. The pressure on JAB is more significant if we take into account the high leverage of the deal (JAB contributed one fourth of the $12Bn price tag). It is a tough predicament. On the one hand we argue that to make that deal work, they need to buy more (own) brands either from the retail channel (that can be extended to CPG: Dunkin (DNKN)? Panera (PNRA)?), or outright buy CPG brands (like the entire Kraft Heinz portfolio, and or Tata Groups Eight OClock brand). But can/how do they fund these deals? Maybe Mars and Warren Buffett (Mars is involved in office coffee with Starbucks), private equity, and or 3G can help? While this note is not about Positive-rated Mondelez, we have mentioned before a scenario where Kraft Heinz buys Mondelez and partly funds the deal by selling its own CPG coffee business (~$3Bn we say) to JAB as well as divests the Mondelez 20% plus stakes in Keurig (North America) and Jacobs Douwe Egberts (Western Europe), which together at this stage are worth ~$7-8Bn. But, yes, JAB will need deep-pocket partners and generous lenders. Net, JAB needs to do something soon.

stock exchange today: Golar LNG Partners LP(GMLP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Golar LNG Partners LP (GMLP), a limited partnership, owns and operates floating storage and regasification units and LNG carriers under long-term charters. This stock closed up 3.5% at $32.74 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 432,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 81,559

    Volume % Change: 283%

    From a technical perspective, GMLP bounced notably higher here right off its 200-day moving average of $31.79 and back above its 50-day moving average of $32.56 with strong upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of GMLP within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if GMLP manages to take out Monday’s intraday high at $32.96 to some more near-term overhead resistance at $33.15 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GMLP as long as it’s trending above its 200-day at $31.79 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that’s near or above 81,559 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then GMLP will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $34.78 to its 52-week high at $36.

Passengers flying direct from Dubai and Turkey to the United States may soon be able to take their laptops on board again.

In March, the U.S. banned electronics devices larger than a smartphone from the cabin on several airlines flying from the Middle East, because it was worried they could be used to smuggle explosives on board.

Last week, the Department for Homeland Security (DHS) lifted the ban for Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways because it had put additional security measures in place. Emirates and Turkish Airlines are next in line.

“Turkish Airways and Emirates Airline have initiated the process for lifting the ban by alerting the [Transportation Security Administration] they are ready to comply with the enhanced security measures,” a DHS spokesman told CNN on Tuesday.

“TSA is scheduled to visit Turkish Airways and Emirates Airline [on July 5] to verify the measures have been implemented correctly and to the full extent required.”

Turkish Airlines CEO Bilal Eksi confirmed on Twitter that he expected the ban to be lifted Wednesday.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    In my Trader column on Dec.3, I argued for more upside in Deere (DE), despite the fact that it had gained more than 30% on the year. Part of the argument was technical–Deere had finally broken out of a trading range that had been in place for five years–but I also noted that the agricultural equipment maker had been able to grow earnings despite continued sluggish demand for farm equipment. Today, Baird’s Mircea Dobre and Joseph Grabowski make a similar argument as they name Deere an Idea for 2017:

    Deere has upside even after a strong 4Q16 where the real surprise was strong Ag margin rather than confirmation that a turn in the Ag cycle is imminent. This is where the opportunity lies: as investors find additional evidence supporting a 2017 North American ag bottom the multiple can continue expanding towards the historical peak of 25x baked in our target. For perspective, Caterpillar (CAT) is trading >30x on the premise of a bottom in several cyclical end markets (mining, infrastructure, oil & gas).

    Shares of Deere have ticked up 0.1% to $103.49 at 1:29 p.m. today, while Caterpillar has advanced 0.1% to $93.28. The Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLI) is up 0.1% at $62.50.

Super Bowl tickets cost a fortune — but one ticket seller is promising a 50% refund if the game is a blowout.

Ticket resale site GameHedge said Thursday that it will repay half the cost of every Super Bowl ticket it sells if either team wins by more than 28 points.

That doesn’t happen often. Only six of the last 33 Super Bowls have been settled by such a large a margin, according to GameHedge. Most recently, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos by 35 points in 2014.

GameHedge launched in June, and founder Warren Friss said the “Good Game Guarantee” idea stemmed from his own experience attending sports games.

“I’ve been a sports fan all my life,” Friss said. “It’s just not right that people would pay the same whether they had a good experience or a bad experience.”

The good game policy isn’t new for the company — it’s been employing it since it launched on all of the NFL, NHL and NBA tickets that it’s sold, as long as it’s the home team that loses big. So far GameHedge has had to offer refunds on about 10% of the tickets its sold. The largest refund so far was $3,300, which was paid out for Game 5 of the World Series.
