    Now, here’s a closer look at today’s Money Morning insight, the most important market events, and stocks to watch.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Despite some progress in trade talks between the United States and China, China warned its citizens about trouble ahead for its economy. This morning, the Chinese government predicted the nation’s economy would grow between a rate of 6% and 6.5% in the year ahead. This figure would represent a slowdown from last year’s expansion rate of 6.6% and would be the lowest growth total in 30 years. Ongoing tensions between the United States and China have cooled in recent weeks. U.S. President Donald Trump said that the two nations are “very, very close” to a deal and a “signing summit.” Health insurance companies are under pressure after the U.S. House of Representatives unveiled a “Medicare for all” bill. Although the bill has very little chance of passing in the current session of Congress, investors are unnerved about the growing desire in Washington to shift to a single-payer model. Although there might be an opportunity for companies like Cigna Corp. (NYSE: CI) and UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) to rebound, don’t expect the gains to last long. Many analysts feel that health insurance stocks are ripe for a sharp downturn when Democratic nominees for president begin debating their healthcare positions in the fall. Shares of Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) are falling again in pre-market hours. The latest bad news came after the company received another downgrade – this one from Barclays Plc. (NYSE: BCS). The British bank slashed its price target from $210 to $192 per share and said that the company has undermined its own narrative around the Model 3. “With lower margins not likely to be offset by increased volumes and cost saves, we cut our PT to $192 and remain underweight…” the bank wrote. The price target of $192 represents downside of 32.7% from Tuesday’s closing price.

    Stocks to Watch Today: AMZN, BBBY, BCS, CRM
    Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) shares pushed higher after the e-commerce giant received an upgrade from Evercore. The analysts hiked the price target from $1,800 to $1,965 on expectations of higher gross profits. “In this note, we make the case that given Amazon’s shifting business mix,” analysts wrote, “the pace of gross profit growth has become a more relevant indicator of the health of the business, and as such, should be the key metric used to value the company.” Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ: BBBY) fell 3.5% after the firm received a stock downgrade from Barclays Plc. (NYSE: BCS). The investment bank said it is concerned about the retail firm’s ongoing restructuring. Barclays dropped its price target for BBBY stock from $15 to $13, citing concerns about retail traffic trends and gross margin growth. Salesforce.com Inc.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

One of the best stocks in the last two years has been auto retailer Carvana (CVNA), which has surged from its $15 IPO price to nearly $60 as seen in the chart below. As the company continues to expand into new markets, revenues have grown at a dramatic pace. However, the company continues to face massive losses and negative cash flow, which when added to dilution likely means this stock is due for a pullback.

(Source: Yahoo! Finance)

Let’s first review where the company has been in the past couple of years, detailed in the recent 10-K filing. Total revenues were just $365 million in 2016, but that number soared to almost $2 billion last year. Unfortunately, the net loss over that time has gone from $93 million to $255 million. Even if we subtract out non-controlling interests, the company still lost $63 million in 2018.

    Crude oil prices continue to remain in focus after Brent crude hit $80.00 per barrel. The benchmark crude touched $80.00, as markets are concerned about the impact renewed Iranian sanctions will have on global supply. French oil giant Total announced Wednesday that it was abandoning a gas project in Iran after failing to obtain a waiver from the Trump administration to do business in Iran. The sanctions are expected to decline global output at a time that OPEC is already working diligently to push oil prices higher by containing excessive global production.
