    Tariffs
    Governmental action from the White House has added itself to the mix. In January, President Trump announced steep tariffs on imported solar panels. This did two things: It immediately made U.S.-produced solar panels a little more competitive than low-cost alternatives from China or South Korea. And, two, it has led to a solar manufacturing boom. Foreign companies are simply building factories here, changing the ZIP code on their shipping address and dodging Trump’s import duties without changing a single angle on the engineering specs. Since Mr. Trump announced his tariffs, China’s JinkoSolar (NYSE: JKS) has bought a plant in Jacksonville, Fla., First Solar (Nasdaq: FSLR) added to its manufacturing base in Ohio and SunPower (Nasdaq: SPWR) bought struggling SolarWorld Americas, which had petitioned the president for the tariffs, according to The Wall Street Journal.

In 2017, shares of SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR), Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:CSIQ), JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE:JKS), and First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR) investors enjoyed solid gains of 28%, 38%, 58% and 110% respectively.

    The Chinese stock market has entered bear market territory. The Shanghai Composite is off more than 20% since January. Ongoing concerns about the nation’s economic growth and a large-scale trade war with the United States have weighed on investor sentiment. This morning, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin attempted to alleviate concerns about the ongoing selloff by rolling back statements on the nation’s intention to limit domestic Chinese investment. Gold prices took a beating last week, but sentiment may have finally hit an intermediate-term bottom – and it could make this moment one of the best buying opportunities you’ll see. Money Morning Resource Specialist Peter Krauth explains why now is the time to buy gold. Canada is in the process of legalizing weed, and that’s opening the floodgates for billions of dollars to flow into the industry. On June 19, the Canadian Senate voted to legalize recreational marijuana use. By Oct. 17, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants recreational sales to start, according to CBS. Here’s how you can profit from this event.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: GE, BHGE, HOG
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) stock popped 5.5% after the company announced a series of spin-off plans on Tuesday. The company said that it will divest its GE Healthcare business and sell its stake in oilfield services giant Baker Hughes Co. (NYSE: BHGE). General Electric, which was recently dropped from the Dow Jones Industrial Average, will now focus exclusively on its aviation, power, and renewable energy businesses. Harley Davidson Inc. (NYSE: HOG) is taking criticism from President Trump. The company recently said it will be moving some of its U.S. production abroad due to tariffs from the European Union. The iconic motorcycle giant had previously said that tariffs would add an additional $2,200 in cost to every motorcycle that it sold. Trump threatened the company earlier today, stating that if it moves operations over sea, “they

Major manufacturers like Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ), JinkoSolar (NYSE:JKS), Hanwha Q Cells (NASDAQ:HQCL), and JA Solar (NASDAQ:JASO) will see margins squeezed as volume and sales prices fall. They were all enjoying higher margins and strong demand in early 2018, so the could reverse to net losses later this year.

    Consider one of my favorite stocks in the market, Square (NYSE:SQ), which hit an all-time high of more than $100 just a couple of weeks ago. After the recent market drop, Square is trading for about $78 as I write this, so I might consider buying more soon. (Note: I can’t buy any stocks I mention for a few days.)

  • [By Trey Thoelcke]

    Square Inc. (NASDAQ: SQ) is expected to have 54.8% EPS growth in the next five years, a jump from less than 9% in the past five years. This payment solutions company has one of the highest growth rates out there, and some now lump it in with the FANG stocks. But shares are only around 10% higher year to date, less than the Nasdaq. Its next earnings report is expected later this month.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Square’s (NYSE:SQ) Cash App is wildly popular, but isn’t really making any money — yet. In a recent interview, CFO Sarah Friar discussed Square’s long-term banking ambitions. To put it mildly, any banking, brokerage, or lending traction the company gains with its millions of Cash App users could be a big profit driver in the future.

    However, they shouldn’t ignore three other high-growth companies that are changing how companies do business over the internet: Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), Square (NYSE:SQ), and GrubHub (NYSE:GRUB). All three stocks have generated multibagger returns over the past three years, and they could soar even higher on some long-term tailwinds.

    If you have a long-term investing mentality like this, here’s why you should take a closer look at Realty Income (NYSE:O), Square (NYSE:SQ), and HCP (NYSE:HCP). I own all three stocks — not because I expect them to make me rich tomorrow, but because they have some serious growth potential over the next few decades.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Transforming a business can be difficult. Just ask video- and image-processing chipmaker Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA), which has been weaning itself from the action-camera and broader consumer electronics industry over the last couple of years. The company has been doubling down on industrial end markets instead, but stiff opposition awaits there, too.

    Ambarella’s (NASDAQ:AMBA) stock has has plummeted about 36% since the beginning of this year, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The company’s share price slide started when one of its main semiconductor customers reported weak sales, and the drop continued later in the year after the company issued disappointing guidance for its fiscal second quarter.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018

Russ Kaplan is a leading money manager with a value-oriented and contrarian approach to very long-term investing; here’s a look at his top growth idea for the coming year.

One of the few places of value in this market is the home building stocks and our Top Pick for growth-oriented investors is D. R. Horton (DHI), which is a home building stock.

D.R. Horton is more than just a homebuilder, however. Horton is involved in all aspects of the realty area. It also owns lots of property and is into title insurance.

Yes, mortgage rates have gone up, but that is already reflected in the price of the stock, which has fallen from $38 to a recent price is the $28 range. I can see it going back to $38 in the near future.

With a price/earnings ratio of 12, it is very undervalued from the market average, which is currently around 22.

There really is a D. R. Horton and he owns 7% of the company. This is not a stock for those looking for income. It only pays a little over 1%.

    Oil prices haven’t gotten off to the fast start many expected, falling around 6% on average during the first quarter of the year. That slump came despite OPEC’s best efforts since producing nations have achieved fairly good compliance on their planned output cuts. That said, despite the lackluster oil market, we still see some interestingopportunities in the oil market. Three stocks we really like right now are DistributionNOW(NYSE:DNOW),Phillips 66(NYSE:PSX), andConocoPhillips(NYSE:COP), which all should do well in the current oil market.
