The United States imported 500,000 barrels of Venezuelan crude in November 2018, but sanctions will dry up that flow of oil to the United States. With oil prices set to rise in the coming months, we’ve identified the top energy stock to buy in March. Best of all, it’s under $10 per share.

But I think we're seeing a potentially major tidal shift for the U.S. dollar that will take us through the rest of this year, at least.   Since January, the U.S. dollar had been in a downtrend. People got used to it. Nobody cared.   But over the last month, a tidal change has happened… The dollar stopped its plunge… and started going up.   Over the long run, I expect the U.S. dollar won't be a great-performing currency. But in the short run, I think the dollar has some upside – so much so that I put a trade on in my True Wealth newsletter to capitalize on the opportunity.   Let me explain…   The chart here shows it clearly…

The surprise comeback of Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s former prime minister who once imposed capital controls, is likely to halt a rally in Asia’s best-performing currency amid concerns pro-growth reforms will give way to populist campaign promises.

The ringgit may initially slide to the psychological level of 4 per dollar, although the size of its decline will depend on the level of clarity about the new government’s policies, according to Bank of Singapore. ING Groep NV cut its year-end forecast to 4.05 from 3.84 after the vote, citing lingering political uncertainty.

“The first significant resistance is at four,” said Sim Moh Siong, a currency strategist at Bank of Singapore. “We’ll need to see how smooth the power transition is given that this result is historic in nature. Following the transition, we also need to see how the government reconciles the key policy differences.”

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Sometimes identifying the best stocks to buy can be difficult, but you could do a lot worse than check out the stocks selected by one of the world’s wealthiest hedge fund managers — George Soros.

Self-made Soros fled Hungary and funded his way through an economics degree by working as a railway porter and waiter. Years of successful investing gave him a net worth of $25.2 billion and the no. 1 ranking on Forbes’ hedge fund manager rich list. (Warren Buffett, who has a whopping $75 billion net worth, wins the no.1 title for the wider finance and investments community). In 1992, Soros shorted the British pound and reportedly made a profit of $1 billion. He became known as the man who broke the Bank of England.

Now we can track the latest trades of his family office, Soros Fund Management. Just-released SEC forms reveal a valuable glimpse into which stocks Soros likes, and which he doesn’t. I looked back over 2017 and pinpointed Soros’ best stock picks this year. These are the stocks that this legendary hedge fund manager is most bullish on. Note that Soros has just shifted an incredible $18 billion from the fund to charity. Following the move, the fund manages about $4 billion in portfolio assets.

    BRC shares were down 40 cents, or 1.23%, by market close on Wednesday. YTD, the company’s stock is down over 4%.

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Before the opening bell on Thursday, identification solutions provider Brady Corp (BRC) posted a loss in the fourth quarter, despite a rise in revenues, as it was negatively impacted by a number of charges. However, excluding these charges, the company was able to top Wall Street analysts’ earnings and sales estimates. Nonetheless, BRC shares are plummeting in Thursday’s trading.

    The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based company posted a loss from continuing operations of $176.2 million, or $3.41 per share, in the fourth quarter, versus last year’s fourth quarter earnings from continuing operations of $20.9 million, or 40 cents per share. Furthermore, Brady posted a net loss of $177.2 million, or $3.43 per share, compared to net earnings of $11.6 million, or 22 cents per share, in the same period a year ago.

    The fourth quarter loss includes non-cash impairment charges of $204.4 million, $15.6 million in restructuring charges, and $4 million in acquisition-related charges. Excluding these charges, Brady Corp said earnings would have been 53 cents per share in the quarter. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, the company was expected to earn an adjusted 51 cents per share in the fourth quarter.

    The company’s fourth quarter sales came in at $309.1 million, up 15% from $269.1 million in sales posted last year. On average, analysts were expecting the company to see $307.13 million in revenues for the quarter.

    Looking ahead, Brady Corp. sees fiscal 2014 earnings coming in between $1.80 and $2.00 per share, below the analysts’ view of $2.30 per share.

    Brady Corp shares were down $1.71, or 5.25%, during early morning trading on Thursday. The stock is up 7.93% year-to-date.

    The United States has a history of preventing Chinese companies that are even suspected of being state-owned from selling certain products into key industries. Huawei and ZTE (OTCPK:ZTCOF), for example, were under harsh scrutiny for their telecommunications equipment.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2018: NXP Semiconductors N.V.(NXPI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The offer has two caveats. First, Qualcomm’s bid for NXP Semiconductor N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) must either be completed at that price or rejected. Second, Qualcomm may not delay or cancel its scheduled annual meeting set for March 6.

  • [By Jack Foley]

    Furthermore, the NXP Semiconductor (NSDQ:NXPI) acquisition should enable Qualcomm to really become a frontrunner in the lucrative automotive area. There have been rumors that the deal could hit some roadblocks but I see the acquisition eventually going through sometime this year. Qualcomm will want to push its processor business into the automotive market and NXP with its extensive number of loyal distributorsand customers should be able to help here in a big way. Billions are being plowed into theautonomous vehicle market at present and first mover advantage is going to be critical. One would feel that the combined technologies of the Qualcomm/NXP partnership should gain ground here as theIoT phenomenon continues to gain traction. Qualcomm already has a presence here with its Snapdragon processors in some Android Auto IVI systems. For a start, if NXP’sRFCMOS chips (which do away with multi-chip systems) can meaningfully add value to Qualcomm’s current offering in this space, the new partnership could leapfrog a number of competitors in a short span of time, which will be one more positive for QCOM stock.

    One of the best ways to invest in broad-based movements such as the IoT is by buying shares in the companies that supply the hardware and infrastructure powering the trend — such asSkyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) and NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI). Let’s dig into each company to see what makes them two of the top IoT investments on the market today.

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) stock price has now fallen below the crucial 20-day, 50-day and 100-day moving averages. Its legal issues have again weighed heavy on QCOM stock of late. QCOM stock has a crucial support at the $52.66 level, which is just below the last closing price (on April 13). Qualcomm stock has not fallen below these levels in 2017.A fall below this level means QCOM stock could drop, moving close to itsone-year lows. However, two popular momentum indicators Bollinger Bands and Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicators suggest that QCOM stock is oversold. The technicals depict mixed scenario for QCOM stock. QCOM stock has lost momentum going into its Q2 earnings, with the stock losing more than 5% in the last 5 trading sessions and is still down more than 10.5% YTD. QCOM stock still makes a good long-term investment, especially with the $47B NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI) acquisition lined up. The smartphone chipset maker’s stock is also named the top dividend stock with insider buying and has adividend yield of 4.27%. Long-term investors with a high-risk appetite might relish buying QCOM stock at such low levels. However, it would be prudent for risk-averse investors to stay on the sidelines till the Q2 earnings, which would give a better picture of Qualcomm’s present legal woes and its future implications.

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    This has the potential to offset the sluggishness in demand of smartphone chips around the world. Also, certain performance benchmarks of Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor 835 are making positive waves. A lot is riding on Qualcomm’s $47B acquisition of NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI), which it plans to complete by the end of the year. This acquisition would open up the high potential IoT segment as well for the smartphone chipmaker. All of these positives have been overshadowed by Qualcomm Inc’s legal troubles, which could hit its licensing business hard. Qualcomm depends heavily on its licensing business to generate bulk of its pre-tax profits. In the most recent fiscal year, Qualcomm’s QTL segment accounted for 78% of its pre-tax profits. The verdicts in the legal issues faced by Qualcomm will not be out anytime soon. These tend to be long drawn courtroom battles, and have cast a spell of uncertainty over Qualcomm’s licensing business.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI) is knee-deep in a pending merger with sector rival Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM). There was a time when it would have made sense to pick up NXP shares, even if you missed the 25% buyout surge in September.

    On Wednesday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested going long on small cap sofware stockGlobalSCAPE, Inc (NYSEMKT: GSB):

    As for Globalscape, this one’s a little more straightforward, and obvious. GSB shares pushed up and off of their 200-day moving average line last week, and are making higher highs this week. What you can’t see on the chart is how this has been a pretty reliable pattern for Globalscape for years now. The upper edge of the rising trading range is nearing $6.00, though it would take some time to get there.
