Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

Three minutes of frantic trading in Treasuries futures just offered a stark reminder of the danger of betting against the world’s safest asset.

What was shaping up as a second straight day of losses in Treasuries on Thursday, with 10-year yields threatening to hit the key psychological level of 3 percent, turned around in a hurry as turmoil in emerging markets spooked global investors.

Traders pointed to Brazilian officials’ unsuccessful efforts to stem the free-fall in their currency as the trigger for the wave of Treasuries buying. But the rush was magnified because investors were caught offside — there had been a dramatic increase in short bets against U.S. government debt in the past week.

The abruptness of the move, which drove yields on benchmark 10-year notes plunging as much as 9 basis points to 2.88 percent, was apparent in the futures market: From 1:33 p.m. New York time to 1:36 p.m., more than 100,000 contracts on 10-year futures changed hands. To put that in context, that’s more than the 80,000 that traded over a similar span at the time of Friday’s release of U.S. labor data.

A U.S. district court will rule on whether to approve an $85 billion merger between AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX).

    Tuesday saw a mixed session on Wall Street, with various market benchmarks moving in different directions. Investors seemed reasonably neutral about events in Singapore, where leaders from the U.S. and North Korea met and came to some minor agreements that viewed in the most favorable light could provide a road map for future negotiations. Yet investors seem more concerned about what the Federal Reserve’s interest rate setting board might do later in the week, with a two-day meeting starting today to consider whether further rate increases are warranted. Even with the relatively flat performance from the market, some companies had good news that sent their shares sharply higher. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE), and Lands’ End (NASDAQ:LE) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

The price of wine is going up.

Global wine production slumped to its lowest level in 60 years in 2017, according to data from the International Organisation of Vine and Wine.

The most recent harvest produced 25 billion liters of wine, a decrease from 26.7 billion in 2016 and 27.6 billion in 2015. The decline was driven by weak harvests in key markets including Europe and South Africa.

The shortage has caused the wholesale price of basic wine in Italy to skyrocket 74% over the previous year, according to the European Commission. Prices are up 45% in Spain and over 10% in France.

Analysts said that producers, dealers and retailers will absorb some of the price hikes, but consumers will end up paying more — especially for cheaper bottles.

“The wine companies that are targeting very low prices … will be hit the worst, because their margins are very low,” said Stephen Rannekleiv, a global beverages strategist at Rabobank. “When prices go up, it puts a lot of strain on them.”

Best Stocks To Invest In 2018

#lazy-img-327984472:before{padding-top:62.41666666666668%;}

The consensus view sees U.K. inflation trickling back to the Bank of England’s target by the end of 2019. Bloomberg Economics takes a different view: Even accounting for the recent rally in oil prices, it expects the rate to drop faster this year as companies complete the process of passing on higher import costs to consumers. With domestic costs assumed to build slowly, inflation should drop below the BOE goal next year, before returning to 2 percent in 2020.

Best Stocks To Invest In 2018: ONEOK Inc.(OKE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    For an example of just how important this is, take a look at the graph below. Midstream companies ONEOK Inc. (NYSE:OKE), Magellan Midstream Partners LP(NYSE:MMP), and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) have each increased their disbursements for more than a decade. However, there is a difference in the growth rates over time. Enterprise’s 10-year annualized distribution increase was 5.7%, Magellan’s was 10.9%, and ONEOK’s dividend rose at an annualized 16.1% clip. Just a few percentage points here makes a huge difference in the growth of the disbursement over time, as the chart below clearly shows.

    Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI) is one of the largest midstream companies in North America, and it has major dividend plans between 2018 and 2020. By the end of that period, it expects to increase its dividend from $0.50 per share per year (in 2017) to $1.25. That’s huge dividend growth in a short period of time. But don’t get too enamored by that news; the dividend will still be lower than it was before the midstream oil and gas company’s 75% dividend cut in 2016. If you’re looking for dividend income in the midstream space, take a look at longtime dividend payers ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE) and Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:MMP) instead.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks For 2018

The media world in 2016 was rife with the kind of insider drama that would have made for juicy movie plots.

Media moguls found themselves embroiled in power struggles. Broadcast executives and anchors generated a lot of news of their own in 2016 — some of which theyd surely prefer to keep off the air.

The presidential campaign also revealed the crucial and constantly evolving role the media plays in not only reporting but also making news on its own. Social media channels, like Twitter, also emerged as a forceful player in national politics. Here’s a look at the biggest names in media from the last 12 months:

Gretchen Carlson.The former Fox broadcaster singlehandedly ended the turbulent but profitable reign of Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in July, and the networks parent, 21st Century Fox,, apologized and agreed to pay her $20 million to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit. Carlson, a former beauty contestantand a Stanford University graduate, filed the lawsuit, alleging that Ailes sexually harassed her and created a work environment that tolerated rampant sexual harassment. After her lawsuit, other women stepped forward to accuse Ailes of harassment, forcing Fox to fire Ailes albeit with a hefty severance package. Carlson said she was “gratified by Foxs response and said she will redouble (her) efforts to empower women in the workplace.”
