    Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Ralph Lauren outperformed the industry in the past six months backed by robust bottom-line performance in recent quarters. Notably, third-quarter fiscal 2018 marked the company’s 12th consecutive earnings beat while sales lagged estimates after a beat in the previous quarter. Additionally, the company’s Way Forward Plan is on track, and it remains keen on bolstering digital and international presence. Also, the company has been gaining from favorable geographic and channel mix shifts along with lower promotions and reduced product costs. Further, management adjusted fiscal 2018 outlook to account for the positive currency rates, which are likely to aid revenues and operating margins. However, its North America business continues to suffer due to distribution and brand exits, planned reduction in shipments and promotions to enhance the quality of sales, and lower customer demand.”

    I did it. I took my own advice, and bought Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) stock.

    Last month, after learning that investment banker Morgan Stanley had recommended buying shares of Brazilian plane maker Embraer, I decided to take a look at the stock myself. Morgan Stanley, you see, was of the opinion that investors were “attributing too little value to ERJ’s Executive/Defense Divisions,” and the banker was attracted by the stock’s sell-off after Boeing bid less than expected to acquire control over Embraer’s larger commercial division.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now

Legend has it that Canada Bill Jones was the greatest card sharp ever to work the Wild West casinos.

He could beat any man at any game. And while he was generous to those in need, he was ruthless when it came to making money from suckers at the poker table.

Its immoral to let a sucker keep his money, Jones was reported to have said

The statement is particularly timely today. Because the majority of Wall Street is in the exact same business the business of fleecing suckers and keeping their money.

Its a timeless concept. Even the book of Proverbs states that A fool and his money are soon parted.

So whats the message for us as investors?

Dont be a sucker! (or to use the King James Version, dont be a fool!)

    Second, and building on that previous point, what mortgage REITs might lack with a less-than-perfect rising-rate environment, they’ve gained in managerial experience. With the exception of industry juggernaut Annaly Capital Management (NYSE:NLY), virtually no other mortgage REITs had much experience prior to the Great Recession. However, most of these publicly traded mortgage REITs now have a decade or more of experience under their belts. This experience should come in handy as lending rates rise.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now: Embraer-Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica(ERJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last December, shares of Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) spiked following reports that it might sell itself to aerospace giant Boeing (NYSE:BA). Since then, the Brazilian government has ruled out a full takeover of Embraer but signaled its interest in facilitating a partnership between the two companies in the commercial aviation business.

    Boeing also confirmed on Thursday that it has discussed a “possible combination” with Brazil’s Embraer S.A. (NYSE: ERJ), a response to the deal Bombardier struck with Airbus in which the European company took control of Bombardier’s C Series program. A deal between Boeing and Embraer is no sure thing, mainly because the Brazilian government holds a controlling interest in Embraer.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Finally, CEO Dennis Muilenburg said Thursday that the company is nearing an agreement with Brazil’s Embraer S.A. (NYSE: ERJ) that would give Boeing a controlling stake in Embraer’s commercial jet business and leave the firm’s military business under Brazilian government control.

    In the fall 2017 survey, Hollister was listed as the fifth favorite brand for upper income teens. But in the spring 2018 survey, Hollister had dropped off the list — which was led by Nike (NYSE:NKE), American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE:AEO), and Adidas, in that order.

    Boeing had little to say about a deal with Brazil’s Embraer S.A. (NYSE: ERJ) that would give Boeing a controlling stake in Embraer’s commercial jet business and leave the firm’s military business under Brazilian government control.

    Last quarter, Alaska Airlines began taking concrete steps to align its fleet plan with its new target of 4% annual growth and $750 million of annual capital expenditures for 2019 and 2020. The carrier restructured its orders with Boeing (NYSE:BA), Airbus (NASDAQOTH:EADSY), and Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) to better fit its projected needs.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    There are two key reasons why Spirit Airlines may be willing to deal with the complications of adding a second fleet type. First, small and midsize markets are more likely to be underserved than the highest-traffic routes. The CSeries jet family — developed by Bombardier but soon to be under Airbus’ control — and Embraer’s (NYSE:ERJ) E2-series E-Jets are better-suited to low traffic markets than any of the Airbus A320-family offerings.
