Best China Stocks To Watch For 2019

As the fortunes of rival Airbus are shaken by the end of the most ambitious airplane program in its history, Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) has made an unprecedented run at the record books of its own. Boeing shares are up 36% in two months, pacing well ahead of the other components of the Dow Jones industrial average, which is up just 11.6%.

Airbus believed it could build and successfully market a new generation of what the Boeing 747 was — a jumbo jet at the center of the long-haul commercial air fleet for five decades. Cancellation of the A380 by Airbus killed the future of a plane that held as many as 500 seats. Airlines found that smaller more fuel-efficient planes made them more money. Boeing has its competition at the jumbo end of the market.

Boeing had to do more than fight its way through the competition to post a strong rally. Investors have worried that a trade war with China would cut Boeing sales there. China is well along the path to becoming the world’s largest commercial airplane market. The Chinese have not attacked the American airplane industry as a pawn in the trade game, so Boeing may be safe.

    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.

Hot Stocks For 2019

The 2018 Social Security trustees’ report was recently released, and it reiterated what we already knew — that Social Security is going to be in serious trouble unless we take action.

However, there’s a little more to the story than that. For example, did you know that Social Security has nearly $3 trillion in reserves right now? Or do you know why Social Security is expected to be in trouble and what we could do about it?

With that in mind, here are five key takeaways from the 2018 Social Security trustees’ report that help paint a clearer picture of the current and future state of Social Security, and what we could do to fix it.

Social Security added $44 billion to its reserves in 2017

Social Security’s program expenditures were $952 billion in 2017. Meanwhile, the program generated a total of $997 billion in income — $911 billion of this came from non-interest sources (mainly payroll taxes), and another $85 billion came from interest income on Social Security’s reserves. (Note: Numbers may not add perfectly due to rounding.)

Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019

Many people don’t realize it, but when you get that final paycheck, it is one of the most important financial events of your life.  The idea of no longer working for money and having access to a paycheck can do weird things to some people.  In many cases, it can turn them into a penny pinching, wheeling-dealing, cheapskate who will go out of their way to save a buck or get a better deal.

On the surface, it’s admirable and illustrates good financial responsibility.  But deep down it can actually be a bigger problem for their social life, family, and friends, not to mention physical health.

The harsh reality is, going to extremes to save money can take over and dominate a person’s life. It can leave those around them frustrated, burdened, and likely to avoid both personal and social interactions that involve money. In other words, it can push people away.

Top 5 Value Stocks To Invest In 2019

Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) has been one of the best-performing MLPs of 2018. Overall, it has risen more than 45% through the end of August versus a sub-1% gain for the Alerian MLP ETF. Fueling Crestwood’s surge has been the notable turnaround in the company’s quarterly results, which have started rebounding after a challenging past few years.

Crestwood’s rally this year might have some investors wondering if it’s worth buying at today’s price. While it’s certainly not as cheap as it once was, the MLP still trades at a compelling valuation considering its growth prospects. Add that upside to its high-yielding distribution, and Crestwood looks like it could continue generating market-beating returns from here.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Fueled by a sizzling economy and a cheaper local currency, Hong Kong’s retailers are back in fashion with investors — despite familiar warning signs for those who have been here before.

Consumer companies helped lead Hong Kong’s recovery from this year’s market rout. Cosmetics seller Sa Sa International Holdings Ltd. and jeweler Luk Fook Holdings International Ltd. are among the top gainers for local companies on the Hang Seng Composite Index, outperforming the broader gauge by more than nine times since the index hit its bottom this year on Feb. 9. An on-year jump in retail sales and an increase in shoppers from mainland China in the first quarter have powered earnings.

#lazy-img-327838804:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

Investors have seen this before — retail sales surged from 2010 to 2014 before slumping as China’s currency tumbled, a sinking stock market slowed consumer spending and China’s campaign on corruption chilled desire for luxury goods. It’s a similar picture this time, according to Asset Management One, which sees beneficial currency tailwinds reversing in the second half of the year as China’s yuan weakens against the dollar, making Hong Kong goods less cheap for mainland shoppers.
