The questions submitted by readers and Taylor’s answers below have been edited for length and clarity.

Question: My friend is an Air Force veteran who is now a member of the reserves. She has been trying to get an entry-level IT job at a New York financial firm and has had two final interviews but has not been hired. I believe she was turned down because of discrimination against her reservist status. She trained as a medical technician for 10 years but then used the GI Bill to get her bachelor’s degree in IT from a good school. How do you recommend she address HR questions related to her military service? Are there any recruitment firms that help military members with entry-level jobs where their past skills are not a perfect match? – Tony

    Tuesday saw a mixed session on Wall Street, with various market benchmarks moving in different directions. Investors seemed reasonably neutral about events in Singapore, where leaders from the U.S. and North Korea met and came to some minor agreements that viewed in the most favorable light could provide a road map for future negotiations. Yet investors seem more concerned about what the Federal Reserve’s interest rate setting board might do later in the week, with a two-day meeting starting today to consider whether further rate increases are warranted. Even with the relatively flat performance from the market, some companies had good news that sent their shares sharply higher. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE), and Lands’ End (NASDAQ:LE) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

(AMTD) has made crypto history as the first firm ever to place an advertisement on the blockchain. “Through a series of transactions we became the first brand to place an ad in the blockchain. Why? Well, we love finding new ways to use emerging technology. So we decided to have a little fun and plant our flag,” TD wrote on its website, where it included a photo of the ad embedded right into the blockchain code. The process took 68 transactions and TD used the OP_Return feature in bitcoin’s protocol to insert characters as one might write a memo on a check.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

Small-town general-merchandise retailer Shopko thrived for years by focusing most of its efforts on small and midsize cities where retail competition was less intense. However, the rise of Amazon.com upended that business model by bringing low prices to the whole country. As a result, Shopko was forced to declare bankruptcy last month.

At the time of its bankruptcy filing, Shopko planned to close about 100 of its 363 stores. But last week, the company more than doubled the number of planned store closures to more than 250. This dramatic move casts doubt on whether the company can survive at all. If Shopko fails, Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) will be well positioned to cash in on its demise.

Another retailer is on the rocks

Shopko currently has 134 full-line stores averaging 80,000 square feet in size, making them about the same size as a typical Kohl’s store. It also operates more than 170 Shopko Hometown stores — which range from 15,000 to 35,000 square feet — in smaller markets. The company’s store base is heavily concentrated in the Midwest.

    And with just a few smart plays in today’s classic stock picker’s market, you can pull in triple-digit gains with just a small investment.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    The markets are upbeat about the latest reports surrounding trade between the United States and China. Despite news that roughly $16 billion in fresh tariffs are going into effect this week on Chinese goods, markets are hoping that momentum begins to build ahead of discussions between leaders of world’s two largest economies. With that said, President Trump downplayed upcoming discussions in an interview with Reuters on Monday. Back on June 21, I wrote about a fast-moving, high-profit stock – Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: DDE). And that recommendation has brought in gains of roughly 103% since then. But we’re not done with the top gambling stocks. Today, I’m back with an entirely different way to make fast gains in this space.

    AT&T’s (NYSE:T) freshly acquired HBO division just had an impressive streak snapped by video-streaming specialist Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). HBO’s 17-year streak of scoring more nominations for Emmy Awards than any other network ended this week when HBO’s nominations tally stopped at 108 but Netflix moved on to snag 112 potential statuettes.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019

It has been a while since I updated my thoughts on Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR), and a lot has happened with this biotech over the past year, including a huge development deal with Bristol-Myers (BMY), mixed trial data at ASCO, and ongoing progress with additional compounds in the oncology pipeline. On top of all that, Nektar has a pain asset with potentially impressive upside, an exciting early-stage anti-inflammatory asset, and a significant amount of cash.

Nektar shares sold off hard after the disappointing ASCO results, but have since recovered 40%. At this price, I don’t necessarily think Nektar is seriously undervalued relative to the development risk. That’s a key caveat, though, as better clinical data on the NKTR-214 (or ‘214) melanoma program at the November SITC could restore some bullishness here and there is a lot of potential value in ‘214, NKTR-358, NKTR-262, and NKTR-255 that could be unlocked with future clinical successes.

A Year Later, ‘214 Is Still A Key Unknown

Clearly, the biggest driver for Nektar over the past year has been the rise and partial fall of expectations for ‘214, the company’s proprietary engineered IL-2 conjugate that could become a potent addition to immuno-oncology (or IO) combos. As I’ve written before, the IL-2 concept was validated long ago, but the use of it has been restricted by awful side-effects. While ‘214 showed rather unimpressive results as a monotherapy (something that does concern me…), the safety data have been very encouraging.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018

Lam Research (LRCX) is one of the backbones of the silicon microprocessor industry – today, pretty much every advanced chip is built with Lam technology – but the company remains undervalued and under followed. The company creates wafer fabrication equipment and offers services that allow chip makers (like Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), Toshibia (OTCPK:TOSBF), Elphia, Hynix and more) to build smaller, faster, and better performing electronic devices. It is one of the top three semiconductor equipment manufacturing companies, with Applied Materials (AMAT) and ASML, but for a company with a revenue of $9.6 Billion last year, and a market cap of over $30 Billion, they are vastly undervalued.

Thesis

Investors are presented with a great opportunity to initiate a position in Lam Research, which is made even more appetizing due to the slump in share price after Q3 earnings. Imagine going into a store where everything is 30% off. You find a jacket that’s amazing – high quality and well made – and see that on top of the store wide 30% discount, the Jacket has another 10% off. That’s a great deal, and it’s exactly what Lam Research is. In addition to its upside potential, the company has great future growth prospects due to steadily increasing demand of its products, and could also be a future dividend player. WCR feels that LRCX has an upside potential of up to 40%, and has a 12 month price target of $260.

    Darn hard to not like the numbers out of Action Alerts PLUS holding JPMorgan & Chase (JPM) . Profits up nicely in all segments vs. the fourth quarter. Big year-over-year spikes in return on assets and equity from a year ago. Trading revenue up thanks to the return of volatility in the first quarter (can’t wait to see the blowout quarters from TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Schwab (SCHW) ). Good card revenue growth from the fourth-quarter bodes well for retailer’s first-quarter results.

    TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. (AMTD) has made crypto history as the first firm ever to place an advertisement on the blockchain. “Through a series of transactions we became the first brand to place an ad in the blockchain. Why? Well, we love finding new ways to use emerging technology. So we decided to have a little fun and plant our flag,” TD wrote on its website, where it included a photo of the ad embedded right into the blockchain code. The process took 68 transactions and TD used the OP_Return feature in bitcoin’s protocol to insert characters as one might write a memo on a check. The resulting transactions were invalid, but they remain preserved on the blockchain ledger for as long as it exists.

    Earnings appear to be helping equities futures, if slightly, with six Dow Jones Industrial Average ($DJI) components reporting this morning. Leading the way was construction equipment maker Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT), which reported solid earnings of $2.82 a share versus analyst consensus of $2.11. CAT shares rose more than 4 percent in pre-market trading. Other Dow components advancing on this morning's earnings include Verizon Communications inc. (NYSE: VZ), Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) and United Technologies Corporation (NYSE: UTX). The $DJI’s advance appears to have been muted, however, on weaker earnings by 3M Co. (NYSE: MMM), which fell nearly 4 percent on lower company guidance, and insurance giant Travelers Companies Inc. (NYSE: TRV), which fell short of analyst estimates.
