    Britain’s BAE Systems (NASDAQOTH:BAESF) (NASDAQOTH:BAESY) is a behemoth, doing more than $24 billion in annual business and valued in excess of $26 billion — yet it’s largely unknown to U.S. investors, a consequence of its stock being traded over the counter and not on major U.S. stock exchanges like the NYSE or Nasdaq. That could change, however, with BAE winning a big endorsement from investment megabank Morgan Stanley this morning.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos, Leo Sun, and Jamal Carnette, CFA]

    Technology trends move quickly, but investors have to try to look past the cyclical demand to find businesses with enduring competitive advantages. With that broader focus in mind, we asked a few Motley Fool contributors to offer up stock ideas that look attractive over the long term. Read on to see why Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) topped that list.

    Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) was the target of a large growth in short interest in May. As of May 15th, there was short interest totalling 6,205,638 shares, a growth of 52.4% from the April 30th total of 4,070,641 shares. Based on an average daily trading volume, of 3,926,939 shares, the short-interest ratio is presently 1.6 days. Currently, 2.2% of the company’s stock are sold short.

    U.S. investors often avoid Russian stocks due to the political risks, sanctions, and currency issues associated with the once-hot emerging market. But despite those challenges, there’s one Russian growth stock that doubled over the past two years — Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), which created the country’s top search engine.

  • [By Rex Moore]

    1. Yandex highlights advances in self-driving carsMy top moment came far from the convention center crowds, in a self-driving car by a company largely unfamiliar to Americans. The company is Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) — known as the “Google of Russia” because it dominates internet search in that country and rakes in a lot of cash because of it.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Internet Initiative Japan (NASDAQ: YNDX) and Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) are both computer and technology companies, but which is the better stock?

Despite being a billionaire, this isn&s;t a new theme for him. It&s;s an argument based on his view of fairness, rather than self-interest. For example, in the past he&s;s mentioned how he thinks it&s;s wrong that he ends up paying a lower rate of tax than his secretary. This is because of how taxes on income relative to &l;a href=&q;http://www.forbes.com/sites/simonmoore/2016/10/18/taxes-can-offer-a-free-lunch-for-investors/&q;&g;long-term capital gains&l;/a&g;&a;nbsp;typically work.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

What happened

Shares of Alta Mesa Resources (NASDAQ:AMR) are plunging today, down 17.7% as of 11:45 a.m. EDT, after the oil and gas exploration and production company posted second-quarter earnings that fell well short of Wall Street expectations.

So what

Alta Mesa reported a net loss of $0.04 per share compared to analysts’ expectations of a per-share profit of $0.10. While the company was able to grow production significantly — July production was 50% higher than the beginning of the year — and volumes of gas fracking water were up across its set of pipeline assets, low price realizations because of some unfavorable futures contracts and higher costs ate away at any chance of generating a positive return.

Image source: Getty Images.

Management tried to put its best face forward by raising production guidance for the full year, adding an additional drilling rig to its capital spending plan, and expanding its midstream footprint, but these capital spending plans are more than likely going to outstrip the company’s cash-generating ability.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Logan Wallace]

We will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their earnings, valuation, risk, institutional ownership, profitability, analyst recommendations and dividends.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Britain’s BAE Systems (NASDAQOTH:BAESF) (NASDAQOTH:BAESY) is a behemoth, doing more than $24 billion in annual business and valued in excess of $26 billion — yet it’s largely unknown to U.S. investors, a consequence of its stock being traded over the counter and not on major U.S. stock exchanges like the NYSE or Nasdaq. That could change, however, with BAE winning a big endorsement from investment megabank Morgan Stanley this morning.

    But as investors, we’re also acutely aware that not every company can be a winner. Though many investors are clearly seeing green at the moment, some marijuana stocks could truly go up in smoke. One such pot stock, which is potentially the most polarizing of all marijuana stocks among retail investors, is Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF).

  • [By George Budwell]

Hot Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

With the U.S. stock market in the midst of an October sell-off, Wall Street analysts who study charts for a living are worried the situation could get much worse. Among the reasons that have technical analysts concerned are a breakdown in the bull market leaders and a drop by the S&P 500 below its average price of the last 50 days.

The S&P 500 is down 2.5 percent for October and counting amid Wednesday’s slide.

“The selling is a result of selling the best performing stocks this year and it is difficult to time when that selling pressure will slow,” said JC O’Hara, chief market technician at MKM Partners, in a note. “The best-performing decile of S&P 500 stocks this year is lower by 6.6 percent in October. Today, that basket is lower by 1.7 percent (the worst of all 10 deciles).”

“Until we see some stabilization in that basket, we will continue to see weakness,” O’Hara said.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2019

President Donald Trump announced his plan to crack down on foreign investments in American technology companies, but the president’s stance is not nearly as harsh as anticipated.

What Happened

The Senate approved changes to the way the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States operates, which will allow the committee to block joint-venture takeovers of U.S. companies by foreign companies. Under the previous rules, the CFIUS could block direct takeovers of U.S. companies, but they weren't authorized to block foreign companies from forming joint ventures to acquire U.S. targets.

In a statement, President Trump said the new rules will help protect the U.S. economy from foreign influence while maintaining a string environment for international investment.

“I have concluded that such legislation will provide additional tools to combat the predatory investment practices that threaten our critical technology leadership, national security, and future economic prosperity,” Trump said.

Why It’s Important

Markets initially reacted positively to the new foreign investment rules, suggesting investors had expected an even harsher crackdown. Some anticipated the U.S. would block takeovers of U.S. companies by any company with at least 25 percent Chinese ownership.

    Speaking of trade wars, the one looming between the world’s two largest economies, the U.S. and China, has been under the microscope.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2019: Pretium Resources, Inc.(PVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    But several individual companies enjoyed much greater gains than the broader market. Read on to learn why shares of Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN), Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Pretium Resources (NYSE:PVG) each jumped today.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting triple-digit losses even as broader benchmarks had much smaller moves. Market participants largely focused their attention on the inflation front, as March consumer price index numbers showed a 0.2% rise in the core rate excluding food and energy. Year-over-year price changes have accelerated, seemingly giving the Federal Reserve more justification to continue raising interest rates. Yet even though many stocks generally react unfavorably to inflation fears, there were some big gainers that had good news. Hilton Worldwide Holdings (NYSE:HLT), Pretium (NYSE:PVG), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
