Jeff Greene, a billionaire real estate mogul, says he knows what will upend a stock market rally thats entering its ninth year: Higher interest rates and fiscal policy.

He said the Feds policy has translated into at- or near-zero-interest rate policies and $4.5 trillion on its balance sheet over the last seven or eight years. That unleashes jungle animal spirits, he said.

U.S. stock futures are heading higher this morning, as Wall Street looks to economic data and rising energy prices for inspiration. Crude oil futures are trending higher this morning after U.S. inventory data yesterday revealed an unexpectedly large decline in supply last week. Meanwhile, weekly jobless claims, advance November trade goods and the Chicago purchasing managers index arrive on the economic data front.

stock market todayHeading into the open, futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average are up 0.14%. S&P 500 futures have added 0.07% and Nasdaq-100 futures have added 0.24%.

Turning to the options pits, Wednesday’s volume was anemic, with about 11.1 million calls and 8.5 million puts changing hands. The CBOE single-session equity put/call volume ratio fell to 0.55 and the 10-day moving average ticked higher to 0.57.

Taking a closer look at Wednesday’s options activity, General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) saw heavy volume after upping its stake in 3D printing company Arcam Aktiebolag. Meanwhile, United Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP) was flooded with call volume following a breakout above technical resistance. Finally, Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) volume was mixed after KeyBanc slashed it’s Model 3 estimates.

General Electric Company (GE)

GE sparked a bit of excitement from investors yesterday when it upped its stake in 3D printing company Arcam Aktiebolag to 95% from 77%. GE also noted that it would  eventually will take complete ownership of the Swedish company.

General Electric said it views the acquisition as additive to its current businesses, as 3D printing is used in everything from jet engine parts to medical instruments.

GE options traders appeared to view the news in a positive light. Volume ticked higher to 214,000 contracts, with calls accounting for 59% of the day’s take.

However, GE’s January 2018 put/call open interest ratio rose from 0.50 yesterday to 0.53 today. In other words, puts were added at a faster rate than calls in the front-month series, signalling a bearish shift in sentiment.

United Pacific Corporation (UNP)

Stock in railroad company United Pacific extended its recent tear higher on Wednesday, breaking out above former resistance at $135. UNP stock has soared nearly 36% higher since bottoming near $100 in late July.

Continued economic growth in the U.S. and a strong industrial sector have helped push UNP steadily higher. United Pacific also pays out its quarterly dividend today — 66.5 cents to shareholders of record as of the close on Nov. 30 — so this could also help explain yesterday’s surge in options volume.

Overall, UNP volume soared to 121,000 contracts, or more than five times the stock’s daily average options activity. Calls accounted for 96% of the day’s take.

Options traders are surprisingly bullishing on UNP heading into January. Currently, the January 2018 put/call OI ratio rests at a lowly 0.35, with calls nearly tripling puts among front-month options.

Tesla Inc (TSLA)

TSLA shares fell 1.78% on Wednesday after KeyBanc slashed its estimates for Model 3 deliveries. KeyBanc now expects just 5,000 Model 3s to arrive in the fourth quarter, down from prior expectations of 15,000 units. Analysts expect Tesla delivery and production numbers to arrive within the next week or so.

TSLA options traders were mixed on the news. Volume came in at 118,000 contracts, with calls making up just 54% of the day’s take. Overall, TSLA’s January 2018 put/call OI ratio rests at 1.47, with puts easily outnumbering calls among front-month options.

Peak put OI for the series totals 19,600 contracts at the deep-in-the-money $250 strike, while peak call OI numbers nearly 14,000 at the overhead $400 strike.

As of this writing, Joseph Hargett did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: JAKKS Pacific, Inc.(JAKK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    One under-$10 toy player that’s trending very close to triggering a major breakout trade is Jakks Pacific (JAKK), which is a producer and marketer of children’s toys and other consumer products. This stock has been destroyed by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 60%.

    If you take a look at the chart for Jakks Pacific, you’ll notice that this stock has been downtrending badly for the last two months and change, with shares plunging from its high of $11.75 to its recent low of $4.82 a share. During that downtrend, shares of JAKK have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of JAKK look like they might be ready to see an end to its downside volatility in the short-term if the recent lows can hold. I believe this due to the fact that JAKK has started to move sideways and trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JAKK if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $5.08 to $5.27 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 695,817 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then JAKK will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.68 to its 50-day moving average at $6.07 a share. Any high-volume move above its 50-day will then put $7 to $8 into range for shares of JAKK.

    Traders can look to buy JAKK off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $4.87 to $4.82 a share. One can also buy JAKK off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Non-bank ATM operator Cardtronics (NASDAQ:CATM) slumped on Friday despite reporting fourth-quarter results that beat analyst estimates on all fronts.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

No one in modern financial history comes close to matching Warren Buffett’s record as an investor.

Hedge fund managers like John Paulson and Kenneth Griffin have had huge years along the way, and more conventional money managers such as Peter Lynch have turned in stellar performances as well, but none has performed at such a high level over such a long period of time as the Oracle of Omaha.

When Buffett took control ofBerkshire Hathaway(NYSE: BRK-A)(NYSE: BRK-B) in 1965, it was an ailing textile company with a bleak future. Today, thanks to Buffett’s brilliance at capital allocation, Berkshire is the fourth-biggest company in the S&P 500as measured by market capitalization.

The compound annual increase in Berkshire’s book value per share has averaged 19% since Buffett grabbed the reins. That’s nearly double the compound annual gain of the S&P 500, which comes out to 9.7% over the same 52-year stretch.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Costco Wholesale Corp. (NASDAQ: COST) released fiscal first-quarter earnings report after markets closed on Wednesday. The company posted $1.24 in earnings per share (EPS) and $28.1 billion in revenue. The consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters called for $1.19 in EPS and $28.3 billion in revenue. The same period of last year reportedly had EPS of $1.09 and $27.22 billion in revenue.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    When Costco Wholesale (COST) announced its fiscal first-quarter earnings in December, its shares rose 1.3%, despite initial disappointment. And next month, Costco will release its December sales, which should show whether that reaction was justified. Baird’s Peter Benedict and team offer a preview:

    Getty Images

    Modeling December “core” comps (ex-gas/FX) of 2%-3% (reported comps also 2%-3% vs. Street’s initial 1.8%E), with the slight uptick from November’s 2% core supported by easier compares, stronger trends exiting/entering November/December, and more seasonable weather. Looking ahead to CY17, prospects for further improvement in underlying comp trends appear good as compares continue to ease and tobacco-related headwinds are cycled (in the spring). When combined with a potential U.S./Canadian fee increase (and perhaps even another special dividend), we reiterate our Outperform rating/$175 price target.

    Shares of Costco Wholesale have ticked up 0.1% to $161.19 at 2:58 p.m. today.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Nam Tai Electronics Inc.(NTE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another stock that’s starting to move within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Nam Tai Electronics (NTE), which is an electronics manufacturing and design services provider to a select group of the world’s leading OEMs of telecommunications and consumer electronic products. This stock has been destroyed by the sellers so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 41%.

    If you look at the chart for Nam Tai Electronics, you’ll notice that this stock has been uptrending for the last month and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $6.05 to its recent high of $8.38 a share. During that uptrend, shares of NTE have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of NTE within range of triggering a big breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NTE if it manages to break out above some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.38 to $8.79 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 647,483 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NTE will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from April that started near $11.50 a share. If this stock gets into that gap with volume, then the upside is tremendous and we could easily see NTE hit $11 to $12 a share.

    Traders can look to buy NTE off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 50-day at $7.42 a share, or below more key support at $7.22 a share. One can also buy NTE off strength once it takes out that breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

It seemed plausible that Alaska would consolidate its Dallas-area operations at DFW, the region’s main airport.
