    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

&l;p&g;Many of us are probably unfamiliar with the concept of care managers. That may be because geriatric care management is not a clear-cut, licensed profession like nursing or social work. Further, they now call themselves Aging Life Care Managers, a catchall title that does not specify what they can and cannot do.

There is no requirement that someone using this title have a license in any profession. What that means is that the state where they do their work has not set a standard, measured by testing, to use the title nor deliver the services offered. If there is a license in any state there is accountability if failure occurs to maintain professionalism. However, with appropriate vetting by the consumer of services, the care manager can be an invaluable help to families and elders alike.

    CVS Health sold off from its high of over $113 to $92 recently as the company issued 2016 guidance that was below expectations. Only six weeks later, CVS increased its outlook for 2016, causing the stock to rally off recent lows to where it currently sits at around $98. We believe CVS offers value because of its undemanding valuation, its focus on returning capital to shareholders, and its exposure to long-term secular tailwinds, including increased health-care coverage, an aging population, and healthcare cost control.

    Management recently reaffirmed its long-term target of 10-14 percent EPS growth while also increasing its dividend 21 percent to $1.70 (to a 1.7 percent yield). CVS is committed to increasing its dividend payout ratio to 35 percent by 2018, which implies a compound annual growth rate of 18 percent. Also, we expect $4 billion to $5 billion in share repurchases annually. CVS currently trades at 16.9 times calendar year 16 estimated EPS.

    So what

    That makes more than 38% in combined losses since it was announced that Japanese tech conglomerate SoftBank would merge its OneWeb satellite company with Intelsat in a 40%-60% deal, with SoftBank owning the 40%.

day trading courses: Gener8 Maritime, Inc.(GNRT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shanthi Rexaline]

    Frontline might be evaluating a new tanker company target such as Gener8 Maritime Inc (NYSE: GNRT), away from DHT Holdings Inc (NYSE: DHT), Lewis said. This was substantiated by the fact that Frontline sold 1.7 million shares of DHT in March, followed by 2.4 million shares in April and May. Though Frontline holds about 6.8 million shares of DHT, the Credit Suisse analyst said a deal is unlikely.

    “If you look back to the 70s, 80s and 90s, in every of those decades the industry found at least one 50+ million ounce gold deposit, at least ten 30+ million ounce deposits and countless five to 10 million ounce deposits. But if you look at the last 15 years, we found no 50 million ounce deposit, no 30 million ounce deposit and only very few 15 million ounce deposits,” Pierre Lassonde, chair of gold royalty and income stream company Franco-Nevada Corp. (NYSE: FNV), told German financial newspaper Finanz und Wirtschaft last October.

    Given revised commodity deck forecasts (particularly for Steel and Gold) and improved Balance Sheet health (Steels, Precious and Industrials Metals) we are upgrading our ratings on several stocks in our coverage. We generally favor companies that have already initiated specific self-help, have low-cost assets and are less exposed to China supply and demand dynamics. In Steels, we have increased our rating from Hold to Buy on Nucor (NUE) and from Sell to Hold on US Steel. We have also upgraded Kinross Gold (KGC) to a Hold on valuation…On higher-than-peer valuations, we reiterate Sell-rated Coeur Mining (CDE), Franco-Nevada (FNV), Goldcorp (GG), Teck Resources (TCK) and highly leveraged AK Steel given preference to issue further equity if possible.
