    Now, here’s a closer look at today’s Money Morning insight, the most important market events, and stocks to watch.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Today, investors will watch earnings season kick into high gear. A busy day of reports started today with a solid one from UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH). The health insurance giant’s stock could jump up to 3% after topping Wall Street expectations, while Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) could gain another 2% thanks to a solid report.
    The U.S. Federal Reserve could hold interest rates in place until late 2020, according to one prominent member of the central bank. On Monday, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said that the Fed can hold off on raising rates until around the election. Evans said that holding off will help “support the inflation outlook.” Keep a close eye on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), whose shares are dancing with the $200 level. With Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) set to report earnings, Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) launching its own streaming service, and Hulu losing a major investor, all eyes are on Tim Cook’s company and its plans to enter the highly competitive content wars. Last week, AAPL stock received a price target upgrade from Wedbush, $215 to $225 per share. But if you’ve been following us, you’d know that $225 is our long-term outlook for one of the world’s top companies.
    Stocks to Watch Today: NFLX, DIS, CMCSA, T, CSX
    Earnings season is in full swing, and investors will keep an eye out later for Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX). The global streaming giant reports earnings today. Prior to its earnings report, Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) upgraded its stance from a “Hold” to a “Buy” and expects stronger subscriber growth on top of higher monthly subscription costs. The German bank set a price target of $400 per share. NFLX stock is up 30% so far this year, but the stock faces increasing competition from a variety of challengers.

    Brace Yourself: The 5G revolution is unleashin

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    It’s not all good news on the trade front. Shares of Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) fell nearly 1% after the company received a downgrade from German financial giant Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB). The bank slashed its price target for CAT stock from $152 to $128 on concerns that “synchronized global growth has collapsed, [and] the China Land Cycle is rolling over.” The bank added that “Europe is slowing more than expected and the U.S. is oversaturated with construction equipment.” Global growth concerns continue to accelerate and raise worries that the international economy is slipping into a recession. Central banks are tapped out on debt and have limited stimulus options.
    Brent crude prices pushed toward $70 per barrel. This is the fourth consecutive day of gains as markets continue to project a tightening balance between global supply and demand. U.S. WTI crude prices were moving toward $63 per barrel as cuts by OPEC, American sanctions against Iran and Venezuela, and reduced shipments to Asia support prices. However, oil could see a bit of pressure today after the American Petroleum Institute announced a surprise uptick in domestic crude inventories. The U.S. Department of Energy will release the official report on U.S. inventory levels later today.
    Stocks to Watch Today: GME, NFLX, PLAY
    Shares of GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) plunged more than 12.2% in pre-market hours after the retail firm fell well short of earnings expectations. The company offered a weak outlook, saying it doesn’t anticipate an increase in sales this year. In fact, it expects sales to fall by 5% to 10% this year. The stock fell to its lowest level since 2005. The company is facing added pressure from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL), two Silicon Valley giants that plan to launch their own video game streaming services in the future.

    Two Stocks to Watch Today: BKE, FB
    Shares of Buckle Inc. (NYSE: BKE) were off 0.7% after the firm received a downgrade from German investment bank Deutsche Bank (NYSE: DB). The firm downgraded BKE stock from a “Hold” to a “Sell” and set a price target of $16 per share. Shares of Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) were off 1.2% after The New York Times reported that the social media giant is under criminal investigation. According to the newspaper, the firm offered “broad access to view information on Facebook users” sometimes without those users’ permission.

Top 10 Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019

Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL) is scheduled to release its most recent quarterly results after the markets close on Monday. Consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters call for $0.69 in earnings per share (EPS) and $9.31 billion in revenue. The fiscal first quarter of last year reportedly had EPS of $0.62 on $9.21 billion in revenue.

Over the summer, Oracle issued guidance for this quarter, saying that it expects to see EPS in the range of $0.67 to $0.69 and revenues up about 1% to 3% on a constant currency basis.

One thing the company has started doing for its financial reports is that it will not be listing its platform-as-a-service (PAAS) and software-as-a-service (SAAS) segment revenues going forward. This started in the fiscal fourth quarter over the summer, and it did have some investors concerned.

Jefferies analysts had this to say about Oracle’s most recent quarter:

Oracle reported fourth quarter results beating expectations. That said, the company re-segmented revenue in the release, resulting in a discontinuation of Cloud disclosure, which appeared to increase investor caution. Looking ahead, we note that while current deferred revenue came in below consensus, this was partially due to the accounting change. However, non-GAAP operating margins increased 1.2% year over year to 47.1%, and we note that fiscal 2018 free cash flow grew 5%.

    Twitter will try not to mimic Facebook’s mistakes on IPO day.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) At the start of last year, Nasdaq (NDAQ) and Morgan Stanley (MS, Fortune 500) were on top of the tech world. Both landed key roles in Facebook’s hotly anticipated initial public offering.

    But Facebook’s IPO changed that. Both companies were widely criticized for Facebook’s face plant of a debut. The problems that marred Facebook’s IPO clearly hurt the image of Nasdaq and Morgan Stanley.

Top 10 Financial Stocks To Watch For 2018: Nuveen Municipal Value Fund Inc.(NUV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Donald van Deventer]

    The latest implied forward rate forecast from Kamakura Corporation shows projected 10-year U.S. Treasury yields differing -0.07% to 0.03% from last week while fixed rate mortgage yields varied by -0.01% to 0.08%. Mortgage yields, determined by the Monday through Wednesday weekly survey of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, lag Treasury movements simply because of the 3-day yield calculation used in the Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield is projected to rise from 2.92% at Thursday’s close (down 0.06% from last week) to 3.374% (down 0.06% from last week) in one year. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield in ten years is forecast to reach 4.639%, 1 basis point lower than last week. The 15-year fixed rate mortgage rate is forecast to rise from the effective yield of 3.69% on Thursday (down 0.001% from last week) to 4.222% (down 0.006% from last week) in one year and 6.29% in 10 years, up 0.038% from last week. We explain the background for these calculations in the rest of this note, along with some mortgage servicing rights metrics. The forecast allows investors in exchange traded U.S. Treasury funds (TLT) (TBT), total return bond funds (BOND), municipal bonds (NUV) and exchange traded mortgage funds (REM) to assess likely total returns over the next 120 months. Treasury-related exchange traded funds affected by the forward rates include:

Top 10 Financial Stocks To Watch For 2018: Pebblebrook Hotel Trust(PEB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Marshall Hargrave]

    The other key benefit for Strategic is that it enjoys industry-leading earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) per available room. For 2012, Strategic generated $81 per room of EBITDA. Compare this to top comps LaSalle Hotel (NYSE: LHO) at $74 per room and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) at $71. The reason for this is that Strategic is much less reliant than its peers on rooms, with much greater exposure to food and beverages. Strategic earns 53% of its revenue from rooms, while its peers get around 66% of revenues from rooms.

    The long saga regarding Pandora Media Inc. (NYSE: P) has finally come to a head. Well, maybe. Rather than KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE: KKR) investing $150 million, Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) will be investing up to $480 million in the streaming music rival. With its ticketing unit sale taking place as well, it might seem that Pandora is getting a great deal and helping to bolster its books.
