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.

The inaction of anything in Washington, when there was virtually no fiscal policynothing getting donemeant that the only game in town was the [Federal Reserve], Greene told CNBC during a Monday interview. 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.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018

Yesterday, ExxonMobil (XOM) reported earnings that didn’t do much to excite investors, and today its shares are falling again, making my bearish call from Jan. 14 look better and better. Strategas Research Partners’ Chris Verrone and team note that Exxon–the largest stock in the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) with a 16% weighting–continues to weigh on the energy sector:

Strategas Research Partners

Credit Suisse analystEdward Westlake and team hope for improved financial disclosure from Exxon:

It continues to be a source of annoyance to investors that some US majors do not include a full cashflow statement in their release. The European Majors do so. Deferred taxes have been a drag on cashflow in 2016 across the group. Exxon’s 4Q16 cashflow was $7.4bn and this was depressed by $2.4bn of “working capital/other”. This was likely deferred tax losses. We will only know when we get the 10-K. Even in the 10-Q at 3Q16,Exxon lumped 19% of cashflow into “all other items” disclosure should be more granular. Brent was $50/bbl in 4Q16. AsExxon get the benefit of slightly higher commodity prices, then deferred taxes could become a neutral and then a positive. There is a tail wind from legacy project startups, and shale growth. However, it makes a big difference to Exxon’s oil price breakeven to annualize $7.4bn of 4Q cashflow ($29.6bn) or $9.8bn ($39.2bn) when the cash dividend is $12.5bn and headline 2017 capex is $22bn. On the reinvestment side of the ledger, the recently acquired shale assets could grow to 350kbd over time.Exxon produced 4.1MBD in 2016 with a 3% mitigated base decline. Hence, this shale growth could help offset 3years of decline. Aside from shale,Exxon also has lower cost resources to develop e.g. in Guyana, Papua New Guinea, Aspen solvent-assisted SAGD in-situ oilsands (subject to BAT), Romania, and has downstream.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018: Reynolds American Inc(RAI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Leo Sun]

    With interest rates set to rise this year, many dividend investors are likely worried that their stocks will slip as bond yields become more attractive. While some dividend stocks will inevitably decline, investors can still find some low-risk income plays that have high yields and cheap valuations. Let’s take a look at three such stocks — AT&T (NYSE:T), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Reynolds American (NYSE:RAI).

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Just before 1pm today, shares of Reynolds American (RAI) took a sudden nosedive on reports that its merger with British American Tobacco (BTI) had “hit a snag” according to StreetInsider.com. Cowen’s Vivien Azer and team still think a deal gets done:

    Getty Images

    Street Insider is reporting that BATS’ acquisition of RAI has “hit a snag,” and that “a potential transaction may be less likely near-term.” We view this source as less credible (vs. a WSJ or CNBC), in particular given the scant level of detail. While the delay in a consummated deal has extended longer than we thought, we still view the deal as likely (85% probability).

    Shares of Reynolds American have dropped 1.3% to $55.47 at 2:26 p.m. today, while British American Tobacco has declined 0.2% to $112.71. Shares of Philip Morris International (PM), which could be interested in an acquisition of Altria Group (MO), have fallen 1% to$90.28 after getting cut toNeutral from Buy at BofA Merrill Lynch, while Altria has risen 0.5% to$67.94 after getting upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Merrill.

    It remains true that the tobacco industry will continue coming under pressure from anti-smoking activists, politicians, and regulators who seek to stub out cigarettes further by raising taxes on smokes, but companies such as Altria and Reynolds American (NYSE:RAI) are largely able to offset their impact on profits by raising prices. The ability to command such pricing power without an overly large loss of customers obviously speaks to the addictive qualities of smoking but is also an otherwise enviable position to be in.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    General Dynamics Corp. (NYSE: GD) was last trading at $173.21 versus a Merrill Lynch price objective of $200.00 for the company.

General Dynamics has a consensus analyst target price of $186.06 and a 52-week range of $121.61 to $180.09.

Top Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2018: athenahealth, Inc.(ATHN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    Shares of Athena Health (ATHN) are up 37% in just over a month. Is there still more room to run?

    Cramer said for years Athena had been a fast-growing stock, but as the company transitioned from growth to profitability, things began to get ugly. The company’s bombastic CEO, and his “colorful” personality began to rub shareholders the wrong way.

    Under a single-payer system, healthcare becomes a regulated utility much like electricity with just a few large, best-in-class players. Athenahealth (Nasdaq: ATHN) could combine with Walgreen Boots Alliance (NYSE: WBA). Maybe each monolith will cover a specific region like Southern Company (NYSE: SO) and Consolidated Edison (NYSE: ED).

    Meanwhile, earnings season continued to play out, and although the technology industry saw some extremely encouraging reports, not all stocks participated in the rally. Athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN), Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF), and Time (NYSE:TIME) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Athenahealth (ATHN) last night announced that its CFO and administrative chief, Kristi Matus, would be leaving the company. Her departure has not been embraced by investors, who have pushed shares lower today. Leerink’s David Larsen understands their concerns:

    In our view, the CFO departure may be indicative of internal operational challenges. We still think it is possible that Kristi Matus is seeking an environment that is not as demanding as ATHN, though this has not been confirmed by management. Management harped on the point that bifurcation is part of the strategic initiative of ATHN to reenergize the culture of the company, and Jonathan Bush noted how he himself hopes to spend more time on talent and culture and less time on entering new markets and building new products.

    We continue to believe that ATHN is facing challenges. We continue to believe the market is fundamentally slowing and bookings growth may become more lumpy as we progress through 2016. We still believe there will be a slow-down in the bookings growth rate b/c of a possible slow-down in the ambulatory EMR market and the fact that we are in the final payment year of Meaningful Use. Much of the call focused on Kristi Matus’s departure as a major loss for the company of a leader who was “masterful with investors.” According to management, the decision to split the CFO and CFAO responsibilities was not a reflection of her ability.

    Baird’s Matthew Gillmor and Sean McBride are less worried:

    The unexpected resignation of CFO Kristi Matus is disappointing, but the reasons for her departure seem somewhat understandable, in our view (potentially viewed bifurcation of CFO/CAO role as a demotion). We think incoming CFO Karl Stubelis is very strong and should provide helpful continuity, both internally and externally (currently serves as Controller and previously as acting CFO). Finally, the CFO change does not change our positive long-term thesi

Top 10 Dividend Stocks For 2018

On February 16, 2017, the United States Appeals Court for the Sixth Circuit in Summa Holdings, Inc. v.. Commissioner of Internal Revenue held that using DISC and Roth IRA strategy for their Congressional-sanctioned purpose, tax avoidance, was permissible.  The Appeals Court reversed a previous Tax Court ruling (Summa Holdings Inc. v. Commissioner, T.C. Memo 2015-119) that disallowed a domestic international sales corporation (DISC) Roth IRA strategy on the grounds that it had no nontax business purpose.

The Summa case is important for taxpayers because it confirms that commissions paid to DISCs owned by IRAs, paid pursuant to the terms of Internal Revenue Code (“Code”), and the subsequent dividends from the DISCs to the IRA, are legal and not subject to attack under the substance over form doctrine.

Summa Holdings is controlled and largely owned by the Benenson family, including two sons. The Cleveland-based company is the parent corporation of a group of companies that manufacture industrial products that are sometimes exported. To encourage exports for closely held United States companies like Summa that lack any meaningful foreign presence, Congress, in 1971, authorized the use of a DISC. The tax break is that the parent firm doesn’t owe corporate-level income tax on “commissions” paid to the DISC on its qualified exports. Properly structured, a DISC has no activities other than on paper and no activities not related to the export of qualifying goods.

(NASDAQOTH:KMTUY), and Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) have been hurting. Only that looks like it’s starting to change, which means this trio could be at the top of a list of mining equipment companies to buy in 2017.

People were perplexed about the Illinois Tool Works (ITW) and Cummins Engine (CMI) and Caterpillar (CAT) quarters, but they turned out to be classic buying opportunities after years of being sell opportunities if the stocks had run. I can’t explain to you how amazing that is. Here are three stocks that have spent months and months in purgatory when they have missed or guided down or slashed forecasts.

    Times are tough for Ralph Lauren (RL). Profit and sales are fallingat theiconic clothingcompany, and investors who bet on a turnaround havelost their shirts on the stock. Adding to its troubles,CEO StefanLarsson is departingfollowing a creative clash with the companys namesake and founder.

    Pessimism, meanwhile, appears to be on the rise.

    According to a report by the financial analytics company S3 Partners, short interest in Ralph Lauren has risen since the start of the year, hitting historical levels. And while that short position is expected to keep expanding, bearish sentiments could turn on a dime.

    Ihor Dusaniwsky at S3 Partners writes:

    RL short interest levels, already at historical highs today, should continue to grow if the recent trend continues, but having made almost 23% in 2016 and 14% in 2017, short sellers may be quick to cover their positions and lock in profits if RLs stock price turns against them.

    Short interest in Ralph Lauren fell in 2016 as the stock price fella nd shorts covered positions, netting a return of 22.6%. So far this year, however, the short position as increased $226 million, or 38% to $815 million as of this morning, according to the S3 report.

    Its a profitable day for those short sellers. Todays 11% decline Ralph Laurens stock price on an $815 million short position has added $90 million to the short sellers collective bottom line.

    Ralph Lauren is down 11.5% in recent market actions to $77.26 a after earlier falling as low as $76.86 a share. Thats the lowest price for the stock since 2010.

  • [By Darren Williams] Although the entire cannabis space has quietly taken a hit of their own medicine in recent weeks and gone to sleep, don’t think for one second the entire space isn’t going to light up again soon. That’s just what they do, right? However, knowing who the pretenders are and knowing who the contenders are is really the challenge when it’s comes right down to it.
    First, anyone who claims to be a grower or a seller of cannabis can’t for one second ever make it as a public company right now, or can even legally consider being a public company for that matter, so you can scratch any of those right off your list. At least here in the U.S. anyway, because Canada is already well ahead of the curve having legalized it for medicinal purposes already.
    More importantly, full legalization of marijuana in Canada appears to be on track for July 2018, which will make Canada just the second nation in the world after Uruguay to completely legalize the cultivation, sale and possession of the drug for medical and recreational purposes.
    Regardless, the best time to buy any stocks in a hot growth sector is when either everyone has forgotten about them, or when the overall market landscape has turned bearish, which has yet to happen. However, the former seems to be the case for the cannabis space, despite some very favorable state legislation last Fall.
    For now, as long as you have a license issued by Health Canada, you’re good to go, so there are some stocks trading in Canada already who are well on their way to making some green for investors. Canopy Growth Corporation (TSE: WEED), formerly Tweed Marijuana Inc., is a medical marijuana company based in Smiths Falls, Ontario. Aurora Cannabis Inc. (CVE: ACB), which is engaged in the production and sale of medical cannabis.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

The title of this article may generate strong responses from some, who will reply: “never!” And indeed, if a value trap is defined as a stock that is not a value, then clearly a value trap is never a value. (There aren’t many rich dialetheists on Wall Street.) But let’s take a more nuanced view of a value trap and follow Investopedia.com in defining a value trap, which I quote at some length:

A value trap is a stock that appears to be cheap because the stock has been trading at low multiples of earnings, cash flow or book value for an extended time period. Value traps attract investors who are looking for a bargain because these stocks are inexpensive. The trap springs when investors buy into the company at low prices and the stock never improves. Trading that occurs at low multiples of earnings, cash flow or book value for long periods of time might indicate that the company or the entire sector is in trouble, and that stock prices may not move higher.

When is such a stock, that may not move higher and may never improve, worth buying? This article aims to provide an outline of an answer to that question. Along the way I’ll attempt to note places where I am simplifying the treatment or ignoring potentially important considerations.

The performance again showed the complete confidence that investors seem to have in the market’s longer-term future, despite the fact that some believe that stocks have generally risen too quickly and have been hoping for a pullback. Enough investors seem to be waiting for an opportunity to buy that losses have generally been muted and short-lived. Moreover, some good news sent many individual stocks higher, and Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), RH (NYSE:RH), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the top performers on the day.
