Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

Amazingly, summer is almost here, and the second quarter is down to the last month. One thing is certain: as we move into the typically slower trading months, 2018 could very well end up being a year in which the market highs already have been set. So it makes sense to look at companies, especially in the financial sector, that arent trading at rich multiples or 52-week highs.

With small business optimism soaring, which helps loan growth, and slowly rising interest rates providing a nice tailwind for earnings on deposits, the sector looks like a good bet for the rest of 2018.

Top Growth Stocks For 2021: Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated(CORT)

We are a pharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of drugs that treat severe metabolic, oncologic and psychiatric disorders by modulating the effects of cortisol. Elevated levels and abnormal release patterns of cortisol are implicated in a broad range of human disorders. Since our inception in 1998, we have been developing mifepristone, a compound that modulates the effects of cortisol by acting as a competitive antagonist at the glucocorticoid receptor (GR). We have also discovered three structurally distinct series of proprietary, selective cortisol modulators, all of which share mifepristone’s affinity for GR but, unlike mifepristone, do not bind to the progesterone receptor, and so do not terminate pregnancy or cause other side effects associated with progesterone receptor antagonism. We have begun pre-clinical and clinical development of our lead compounds from these series.   Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Corcept Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CORT) gained over 11% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The double-digit rise might seem impressive, but it comes on the heels of a report by the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation (SIRF) that painted the company and its main profit generator, Korlym, a drug approved to treat Cushing’s syndrome, in a negative light. That caused the stock to plunge in late January. As a result, shares have posted a year-to-date loss of 6% through the first week of March.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson briefed the media in Saudi Arabia on Sunday without members of the American press in attendance.

Tillerson held the press conference with the Saudi foreign minister, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, but it appeared that only foreign reporters were present. Journalists from the United States were left scrambling to figure out what happened.

The State Department later apologized, adding that it couldn’t notify the press in time.

State Department spokesman R.C. Hammond said there was “not enough time to alert or make arrangements for U.S. media to participate.”

“Steps were immediately taken to ensure a transcript could be produced and distributed to reporters. Ideally, members of the U.S. press corps should have had the option to attend the press conference and ask questions,” he said.

The White House and the State Department did not immediately respond to CNN’s requests for comment.

Reporters later found a feed of the event that they used to transcribe Tillerson’s remarks. The secretary spoke about President Trump’s speech to the Muslim world on Sunday.

Discovery was apparently pleased enough with the channel’s progress to buy 100% of Eurosport in July 2015, and that year, Eurosport won the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in Europe from 2018-2022.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

Warren Buffett often jokes that he gets a quarter of his daily caloric intake from Coca-Cola. But an investment firm is suggesting that Kraft Heinz, which Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway owns a nearly 27 percent stake in, may want to buy Coke rival Pepsi.

Fixed income research shop CreditSights said in a report this week that Kraft Heinz (KHC) appears to still be itching to do a deal.

European consumer products conglomerate Unilever (UL), the owner of Lipton and Ben & Jerry’s as well as the Dove brand of personal care goods, rejected a more than $140 billion bid from Kraft Heinz earlier this year.

Unilever said at the time that the deal “fundamentally undervalues” the company and that “it sees no merit, either financial or strategic, for Unilever’s shareholders.”

Kraft Heinz subsequently withdrew its offer instead of pursuing it further. And that’s led to speculation ever since about what Kraft Heinz might target next.

The CreditSights analysts noted that Buffett has already ruled out the possibility that Kraft Heinz could buy Mondelez (MDLZ), the Oreo and Cadbury owner that split from Kraft Foods in 2012. (Kraft Foods subsequently merged with Heinz in 2015.)

Some stocks are expensive but work out well anyway due to exciting earnings growth. Other times the best way to make money is to simply buy shares which are temporarily undervalued due to unimpressive current results.

Israeli-based Teva Pharmaceutical (NASDAQ:TEVA) falls into the second category. Profits from continuing operations have been flattish over the past half-decade. EPS weighed in at $4.98 in 2011 and are expected to finish this year at around $5.16.

A large cash and stock purchase of Allergan’s (NYSE:AGN) generic drug business was completed in August. We think the greater than $40 billion price tag might prove to be a long-term bargain. AGN’s generic business should start bumping up TEVA’s earnings as early as next year, with an eventual annual cost savings of around $1.4 billion per year.

Consensus views for 2017 now center on $5.74 which would be an all-time record. At TEVA’s current quote around $38.95, the shares appear quite cheap, at less than 6.8x next year’s projection. At $38.95 the firm’s 34-cent quarterly dividend provides 3.6% in current yield.

    Earnings season will kick into high gear today with the release of multiple reports from three of the nation’s top financial institutions. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co.(NYSE: WFC), and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) will all be in the spotlight today. U.S. President Donald Trump could be shaking up trade policy. However, it isn’t NAFTA or tariffs with China that are headlining the story. According to reports, Trump has requested his advisors explore American reentry into the Transpacific Partnership (TPP). President Trump pulled the United States out of TPP shortly following his inauguration. The recommendation comes after lawmakers from ag-producing states discussed the impact of leaving the deal with the administration. The decision to reenter the TPP would be very valuable to states that produce the bulk of U.S. wheat given that it would allow exporters to avoid tariffs of $65 per tonne to Japan, which is the largest export market for American wheat. Leading nations of the pact, such as Japan and Australia, reacted coolly to the president’s pivot but did not rule out the possibility of American reentry. Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) is still in focus across the financial world. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before Congress two times this week to address his firm’s ongoing data scandal involving consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Congress’ failure to understand how the Internet works and Facebook’s business model was on full display, but Zuckerberg was able to maintain his composure as he answered questions over the two-day period.

‘Leave Your Checkbook at Home’: New Seminar Alert Update

America’s Retirement System Is Too Inconsistent

Some House members are fighting to give state insurance commissioners the final say when commissioners and the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) get into fights over jurisdiction.

Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., has introduced H.R. 3746, the Business of Insurance Regulatory Reform Act of 2017 bill.

Provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act, the act that created the CFPB, already limit the CFPB’s ability to regulate insurance. The act blocks the agency from regulating the business of insurance, except in some cases in which providing insurance coverage is closely related to providing credit.

H.R. 3746 would further restrict the CFPB’s ability to get involved with insurance.

The bill would limit the CFPB’s ability to regulate any person overseen by a state insurance regulator.

free penny stock picks: iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tom Gentile]

    An ETF is a fund that tracks indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. ETFs basically let you trade an entire sector instead of having to pick and choose specific stocks to trade within a sector. ETFs are also a great way for you to hedge against rising interest rates. When it comes to equities, a good ETF to monitor is the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSE Arca: DIA). For bonds, the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NYSE Arca: TLT) is a good way to gauge the bullishness or bearishness of the overall bond market.

    Todd Gordon spoke on CNBC's Trading Nation about a bullish options strategy in iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond (ETF) (NASDAQ: TLT). He thinks that the ETF could trade higher and he wants to use options to make a bullish bet.

  • [By Luke Kawa]

    All of these low-duration ETFs are trouncing their peers that carry a high degree of interest rate risk — like Vanguard’s Long-Term Bond ETF (BLV) and the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) — out of the gate in 2018.
