Top Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2021

The American Red Cross hired Cambridge Associates to oversee its pension and endowment assets amid increasing competition among managers to run investment offices for institutions.

The portfolios total about $3 billion, according to people familiar with the matter. The Red Cross and Cambridge Associates declined to comment on the size of the assets.

Cambridge Associates will provide two teams to handle the assets with “very different risks and objectives,” the Red Cross said in a statement. The pension fund will be managed to reduce and eventually eliminate financial risk. The endowments team will focus on maximizing growth over the long term.

The appointment is one of the more significant in the outsourced chief investment officer, or OCIO, business, in which money managers run investment offices for institutions and manage the portfolios. About $100 billion has been outsourced in higher education, which has more than doubled since 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

    Wall Street moved lower on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average suffering a 201-point decline. Stocks took their cues from the bond market, where bond prices dropped sharply in response to extremely strong U.S. economic data. For years, the economic expansion has given bond investors a Goldilocks scenario, in which growth was solid but not so sharp as to cause negative side effects, such as inflation. Now, stronger signals could force the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates more aggressively than previously thought, and that could hurt the markets. Several individual companies also suffered from bad news that sent their shares lower. Mallinckrodt (NYSE:MNK), International Speedway (NASDAQ:ISCA), and LGI Homes (NASDAQ:LGIH) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

Has investing in energy piqued your interest lately? It probably should. Oil and gas producers have become much more disciplined operators after the recent price crash, and alternative-energy solutions continue to grow at incredible rates. While it is still a volatile industry, it is on much surer footing than it has been in several years, and could make for some compelling investments.

So we asked three of our Motley Fool contributors to each highlight a stock they think is a top buy this month. Here’s why they picked Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB), Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE), and SolarEdge Technologies (NASDAQ:SEDG)

Near-term growth, and more

Matt DiLallo (Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.
