This lack of clarity is a significant problem for investors. A manager that uses &a;ldquo;fundamental research&a;rdquo; that is based on analysis of &l;a href=&q;https://www.newconstructs.com/education-close-loopholes-econ-vs-acctng-earnings/&q; target=&q;_blank&q; rel=&q;noopener noreferrer&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;accounting earnings&l;/a&g; and flawed metrics such as &l;a href=&q;https://www.newconstructs.com/pe-ratios-good-measure-value/&q; target=&q;_blank&q; rel=&q;noopener noreferrer&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;price to earnings&l;/a&g; or &l;a href=&q;https://www.newconstructs.com/problem-using-accounting-book-value/&q; target=&q;_blank&q; rel=&q;noopener noreferrer&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;price to book&l;/a&g; is not as reliable as a manager that focuses on return on invested capital (&l;a href=&q;https://www.newconstructs.com/education-return-on-invested-capital/&q; target=&q;_blank&q; rel=&q;noopener noreferrer&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;ROIC&l;/a&g;)&l;a href=&q;#_ftn1&q; name=&q;_ftnref1&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;&l;/a&g;.

    Just before 1pm today, shares of Reynolds American (RAI) took a sudden nosedive on reports that its merger with British American Tobacco (BTI) had “hit a snag” according to StreetInsider.com. Cowen’s Vivien Azer and team still think a deal gets done:

    Getty Images

    Street Insider is reporting that BATS’ acquisition of RAI has “hit a snag,” and that “a potential transaction may be less likely near-term.” We view this source as less credible (vs. a WSJ or CNBC), in particular given the scant level of detail. While the delay in a consummated deal has extended longer than we thought, we still view the deal as likely (85% probability).

    Shares of Reynolds American have dropped 1.3% to $55.47 at 2:26 p.m. today, while British American Tobacco has declined 0.2% to $112.71.

    With interest rates set to rise this year, many dividend investors are likely worried that their stocks will slip as bond yields become more attractive. While some dividend stocks will inevitably decline, investors can still find some low-risk income plays that have high yields and cheap valuations. Let’s take a look at three such stocks — AT&T (NYSE:T), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Reynolds American (NYSE:RAI).

    It remains true that the tobacco industry will continue coming under pressure from anti-smoking activists, politicians, and regulators who seek to stub out cigarettes further by raising taxes on smokes, but companies such as Altria and Reynolds American (NYSE:RAI) are largely able to offset their impact on profits by raising prices. The ability to command such pricing power without an overly large loss of customers obviously speaks to the addictive qualities of smoking but is also an otherwise enviable position to be in.

    While the economy’s natural — and recurring — cycles favor different kinds of stocks at different times, not every great trend is necessarily a cyclical one. Sometimes, a trend is rooted in a technological development that changes cultural norms. The advent of the smartphone, for example, has made constant connectivity to the world around part of how we live our daily lives.

    These mega-trends present tremendous opportunities for investors too, provided they’re savvy enough to see them coming and play them the right way.

    One such mega-trend newly underway right now is the proliferation of wearables… devices that meld clothing (often a wrist-worn device) and technology to perform a function that couldn’t be performed otherwise. Much of the same technology that made the smartphone possible are now ushering in wearables.

    It’s not been a smooth beginning. however.

    While the buzz was strong and expectations reached a peak two years ago when Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) was all the rage and in the wake of its IPO, the company’s growth wasn’t to be sustained. The company is struggling to muster any growth now, and FIT shares have fallen to a tenth of their value seen in late-2015, when the euphoria was strongest.

    Fitbit’s slowdown has been mirrored by other companies in the space. The wearables market only grew 3.1% in Q3 of 2016.

    On the flipside, while the debacle of Fitbit — the wearable industry’s iconic company — has been a painful, it’s also been a learning experience. And, it’s not as if the slowdown is unfurling without the wearables market never reaching a respectable size. International Data Corporation estimates were 23 million ‘wearables’ delivered in the third quarter of last year alone.

    Moreover, the fizzling of the market hasn’t turned into a reason to swear off wearables as an investment opportunity… quite the opposite, actually. It’s just now become considerably clearer what consumers want an

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

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.

    CarMaxgained 6.1% to $66.16 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.4% to 2,270.76.

    As my colleague Johanna Bennett noted earlier today:

    The nations largest used vehicle retailer said that it earned 72 cents a share in the quarter, a penny ahead of analysts estimates. Revenue rose 4.4% year over year to $3.7 billion, just shy of the $3.75 billion consensus estimate.

    CarMax’s market capitalization rose to $12.6 billion today from $11.9 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $623 million on sales of $15.2 billion in fiscal 2016.

    Yesterday, I dubbed the selloff in auto stocks “car-pocalypse now,” as shares of everything car related tumbled following disappointing auto sales. Shares of General Motors (GM) and Ford Motor (F)? Check. Auto-part makers like BorgWarner (BWA)? Check. Used-car sellers like AutoNation (AN) and CarMax (KMX)? Check. Auto-part retailers like O’Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and AutoZone (AZO)? Oh yeah. So is it time to panic?

    Then on Thursday, it’s earnings from Delta Air Lines (DAL) , used car king Carmax (KMX) and cloud software company Splunk (SPLK) . Cramer was bullish on Delta, but wanted to hear more from Carmax and Splunk.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Arie Goren]

    Many investors prefer a diversified low-risk portfolio over theriskier strategy of stock-picking. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEMKT:SPY) is very popular for this purpose since it follows the S&P 500 index of 500 large cap companies listed on the NYSE or NASDAQ. However, in my opinion, investing in Berkshire (NYSE:BRK.B)stock could achieve the same purpose of diversification with even better results.

    Passive ETFs continuing to top active rivals is not all about the performance of U.S. stocks this year. Yes, the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent year-to-date, but that is not a jaw-dropping performance. Much of the ongoing out-performance of passive ETFs over active counterparts this year is attributable to fees. Just look at the rock-bottom fees on ETFs such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSE: SPY) and the iShares S&P 500 Core ETF (NYSE: IVV).

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: Rex Energy Corporation(REXX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

    2. Appliance Sale – This is another operating segment that the company did not consider core to its business, so management sold the segment to Haier (OTCPK:HRELF) for over $5b. The benefit: Additional capital can be allocated to the core operational areas.

    The main business units of the Hong Leong Asia are the Diesel Engines Unit – China Yuchai , the Consumer Products Unit – Henan Xinfei (now marketed as “Frestec”), and the Building Materials Unit – BMU. The other business units in the company are the Industrial Packaging Unit – Rex and the Air-conditioning Systems Unit – Airwell. As the majority of the business units namely Yuchai, Xinfei and Airwell, operate in China (more than 80% of total revenue), the continual slowdown of the economic growth in China coupled with increasing competition has adversely affected both the revenue and the profitability. Particularly for the consumer products unit, its small scale has severely impacted its competitiveness given aggressive larger players like Haier (OTCPK:HRELF), Midea, Feilong Electric, and Hefei Meiling.
