Hot Cheap Stocks For 2021

What happened

Speculation that Sprint (NYSE:S) would merge with T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) led to a run-up in the company’s stock price though it actually went down once the deal was announced.

It was known throughout April that talks had begun between the two companies. This marks the third time the wireless carriers have come to the negotiating table.

The first discussions ended when it became clear that President Barack Obama’s administration would not allow any deal that shrunk the number of wireless carriers from four to three. More-recent discussions ended over issues of control making it somewhat surprising that the two companies agreed “to merge in an all-stock transaction at a fixed exchange ratio of 0.10256 T-Mobile shares for each Sprint share or the equivalent of 9.75 Sprint shares for each T-Mobile US share,” according to a press release.

Based on Sprint and T-Mobile’s closing prices as of April 27, the deal would be valued at $59 billion for Sprint and approximately $146 billion for the combined company.

    There’s more at stake for Huntington Ingalls and fellow shipbuilder General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) beyond the $6.5 billion in lost refueling revenue. A modern aircraft carrier does not sail alone but rather relies on a large number of escorts and affiliated ships that also need to be acquired and staffed. There is also the expense of finding pilots for the large number of planes that are housed on a carrier.

    A few years ago, Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) management determined that many of the department store chain’s stores were too big. In many cases, Kohl’s was filling these stores with more inventory than was necessary to meet demand, just so the stores wouldn’t look empty. That excess inventory led to margin-sapping clearance discounts at the end of each season.

    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 Thursday
    Investors are eyeing news that the U.S. deficit with China hit a 10-year high during December. This widening deficit occurred even in the face of U.S. President Donald Trump’s large tariffs on Chinese goods. Trump has been slapping tariffs on China to reduce this deficit. However, Americans continued to buy cheap manufactured goods while the Chinese government has scooped up cheap commodities and raw materials from other nations. Yesterday, shares of Brown-Forman Corp.(NYSE: BF.B), the manufacturer of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, fell 7% after announcing the tariffs were hurting sales. Now, new tensions in the trade deal are emerging as the Chinese tech firm Huawei has sued the U.S. government over a ban to sell its equipment to the United States.
    Before the bell, the European Central Bank planned to announce its latest decision on interest rates and other monetary policy matters. The ECB Bank Chief Mario Draghi hosted a press conference to discuss the bank’s forecast for the European economy. Many analysts project that several key markets – like Germany – have seen a cooldown in economic activity in recent months. The ECB has never raised interest rates during any part of Draghi’s eight-year term. The 2020 election is heating up around one issue – but it’s not the one that you think. In fact, Money Morning Special Situation Strategist Tim Melvin projects that President Trump will do something shocking before the election: legalize cannabis across the United States. Think that’s crazy? Well, you’d be amazed at how easy it would be. You’ll also be shocked by how much money you could make by getting out in front of this trend – check out Tim’s latest insight right here.
