NEW YORK – A former assistant to Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon apparently committed suicide Tuesday, dying around the time he was expected to plead guilty to charges of stealing $1.2 million of pricey wine from his ex-boss.

Nicolas De-Meyer jumped to his death from a window on the 33rd floor of the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan, at approximately 2:38 p.m. the New York Police Department said.

He died after sending text messages to his sister that “indicated he wanted to commit suicide,” the NYPD said early Wednesday.

The worried sister, whom police declined to identify, phoned managers at the hotel on E. 76th St. and asked them to check on her brother. 

Hotel security officials got into De-Meyer’s room and saw him sitting on a window ledge. He pushed himself off the ledge before the officials could stop him from jumping, police said.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019

Another fatal crash involving a Tesla Inc. electric car is under scrutiny following Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk’s latest lashing-out over media coverage of his electric-car maker.

Police in southern Switzerland are investigating the death of a German man whose Tesla crashed into a guardrail and burst into flames last week, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. Bloomberg News reached a representative of the Bellinzona police who said no one is available to provide details on the incident until Wednesday morning.

“We are deeply saddened by this accident, and we are working to establish the facts of the incident and offer our full cooperation to local authorities,” the company said in an emailed statement. “Tesla has not yet received any data from the car and thus does not know the facts of what occurred, although it appeared to be a high-speed collision.”

Musk, 46, sent a series of tweets Monday criticizing journalists for not reporting that Tesla makes what he says is the safest car on the road. He reiterated that the company will begin reporting safety-related data on a quarterly basis, starting after the three months ending in June.

    Darn hard to not like the numbers out of Action Alerts PLUS holding JPMorgan & Chase (JPM) . Profits up nicely in all segments vs. the fourth quarter. Big year-over-year spikes in return on assets and equity from a year ago. Trading revenue up thanks to the return of volatility in the first quarter (can’t wait to see the blowout quarters from TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Schwab (SCHW) ). Good card revenue growth from the fourth-quarter bodes well for retailer’s first-quarter results.

    It may not be obvious, but commission-free trades are more than just a marketing tool for discount brokers; they’re also a way to make money. Charles Schwab(NYSE:SCHW) charges asset managers a fee to make their ETFs and mutual funds commission free, collecting about $0.19 in annual fees for every $100 its clients invest in other companies’ ETFs and mutual funds. Last year, Schwab generated more income ($957 million) from offering such funds to its clients than it earned in commissions ($600 million) on trades its clients actually paid for!

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.
    Finally, investors will continue to monitor ongoing developments in Washington around the presidency of Donald Trump. The White House has asked a federal judge to block prosecutors from reviewing any files seized from his lawyer’s office during a raid by the FBI last week. The agency seized a trove of documents from lawyer Michael Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into a payment of hush money. The spat between the White House and the FBI continues a day after former FBI Director James Comey called Trump “morally unfit to be president.”

    Doubling your money in a relatively short time is much tougher. It typically involves investing in younger, less established companies that have lots of growth potential but could give a lot of ground if a few things don’t swing their way. There are, though, some stocks that look like they have a double in them over a relatively short time frame, and three of our investing contributors think Spark Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ONCE), Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO), and American Tower (NYSE:AMT) fit the bill.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

I. Introduction – The Capital Raise Details

We begin with a quick review of the capital raise.

Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) agreement with its underwriters called for issuance of 1,335,978 shares, with an over-allotment option of up to 200,281 shares, all to be sold at $262.

That option was exercised, so the total share issuance was 1,536,259, resulting in total proceeds (after costs) of $400 million.

Additionally, the underwriters agreed to sell $850 million of 2.375% convertible notes due March 15, 2022, with an over-allotment option for up to an additional 127.5 million of such notes.

It’s unclear whether or to what extent the underwriters have exercised the over-allotment options on the notes (and the option period runs through April 20).

Let’s assume the underwriters also exercise options on the notes. Tesla’s net proceeds from the notes would then be about $967 million, for total net proceeds (stock plus notes) of about $1.37 billion.

However, Tesla entered into hedges, courtesy of its investment banker underwriters, who are collecting trading fees and, most likely, are also the counterparties. Netting the costs and receipts from the hedging, the net cost of the hedges will be close to $150 million.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Methanex Corporation(MEOH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    Back in February of last year, we suggested Methanex Corporation (MEOH), which ended up providing us with some pretty good gains in a fairly short amount of time, and based on what’s happening with the stock technically right now, it could be another gainer over the next several days to few weeks.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    US Ecology (NASDAQ: ECOL) and Republic Services (NYSE:RSG) are both business services companies, but which is the superior stock? We will compare the two companies based on the strength of their dividends, analyst recommendations, risk, profitability, institutional ownership, valuation and earnings.

    Success can be defined as small wins that accumulate over time. That definition helps to put the slow-and-steady progress made by US Ecology (NASDAQ:ECOL) in the first quarter of 2018 into perspective. Revenue and profits grew for both of the environmental services leader’s segments compared to the prior-year period, which resulted in another solid quarter.

    Franco-Nevada (NYSE:FNV) went public in the U.S. market more than a decade ago, and over that time, the company has established itself as a major player in an important niche in the natural resources industry. Franco-Nevada neither mines gold nor drills for oil, but by helping to finance projects that mining companies and oil drillers want to pursue, it ensures it can get a cut of the profits. That’s been a winning business model lately, and throughout its history as a publicly traded company, Franco-Nevada has stood out for one thing that it’s done consistently well: paying and raising its dividend regularly over time.

    The last twelve months haven’t been kind to Praxair (PX) and Air Products & Chemicals (APD), but UBS analyst John Roberts and team argue that’s about to change, as they upgrade their shares to Buy from Neutral arguing that their earnings can withstand a slowing global economy:

    In our view, the two stocks are more alike than different. NTM P/Es are within ~0.5 pts of each other. Both stocks have declined ~20% from their historical highs the largest corrections in 20+ years aside from the financial crisis…

    Industrial gas stocks have normally grown through changes in FX, oil & China demand within normal historical ranges. And investor concerns around China forAir Products & Chemicals may still prove much bigger than reality. Nevertheless, the combination of FX & oil sector impacts on Praxair, and FX & China issues for Air Products & Chemicals, have been much larger than previously seen. With oil already down, the dollar already appreciated, & China concerns already heightened we believe forward basis would appear to carry only normal risks (& lower if FX & oil are mean-reverting, which some theories support).

    Normal high single digit EPS growth projected for both in 2017 vs 2016: Four large firms serve 70%+ of the global merchant gas market, and price normally contributes ~2% to growth. Customer older captive units being outsourced contributes another 2%. Secular drivers for oxygen include energy savings (i.e. O2 burns more efficiently than air), life sciences (healthcare & microbial processes) nitrogen secular drivers include increasing purity requirements (food freezing & semiconductors). Topline growth ~2x global GDP more normal, with EPS growth ~2x sales growth due to high fixed costs (key variable costs are inexpensive air & power).

Following that 2013 creation of Gaming and Leisure Properties Inc(NASDAQ:GLPI),Penn essentially pays leasing fees to the REIT so it can focus on operations with a leaner balance sheet. Here’s a more in-depth analysis of the upside of Penn’s REIT model.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Costco Wholesale Corporation(COST)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Costco Wholesale (COST) has risen 9% during the past 12 months of trading, less than half the S&P 500′s 21% gain during the same period. But that underperformance didn’t stop Barron’s Teresa Rivas from urging investors to “put Costco in your shopping cart” in December, or Oppenheimer from calling Costco one of the most intriguing names in large-cap retail last week. Now Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Fassler and team have added Costco to the firm’s Conviction List, while reiterating their Buy rating. They explain why:

    We believe the company is on the cusp of the earnings acceleration we cited when we upgraded the stock to Buy last spring, aided by its recent credit card deal both the incremental traffic associated with more attractive cashback incentives and expense cushion associated with new terms. We also like the firms attractive positioning as a low-cost/low-priced operator in the challenging retail environment. Our estimates stand above consensus. The stock is trading below long-run relative P/E averages despite the anticipated earnings recovery. Our $187, 12-month price target implies 14% upside.

    Shares of Costco Wholesale aren’t getting a boost from the upgrade this morning, however. Its shares have dipped 0.2% to $163.98 at 10:17 a.m. today.

    The membership model is not a new concept, but it’s one that has been dramatically underutilized by retail. The low-price warehouseCostco (NASDAQ:COST), for example, has been crushing the market’s returns for 30-plus years with its simple membership club formula. And if you need more evidence of Costco’s merits, Warren Buffett’s investing sidekick Charlie Munger has called it “one of the most admirable capitalistic institutions in the world.”

    Costco (COST) is lower after hours, following its mixed first-quarter earnings report.

    Costco said that it earned $1.24 a share, a nickel ahead of analysts expectations.

    Its revenue of $28.1 billion was slightly below the $28.3 billion analysts were expecting. However, it was above the $27.5 billion it said that it expected to earn in its Nov. 30 pre-announcement.

    Costco is down 1% to $152.36 after hours, after closing up 1.9% during regular trading. The shares are down 4.7% year to date.

    BeforeBayer(NASDAQOTH: BAYRY)arrived onto the scene, I viewedMonsanto(NYSE: MON)as an intriguing growth stock. It has a rich history of delivering value to shareholders and continues to hold a dominant technological edge over key competitors in crop protection products, seeds, and traits. While little has changed its promising pipeline and portfolio, the pending acquisition throws a wrench in anyone’s plans to start or add to a position. Uncertainty stemming from the merger provides several terrible reasons to buy Monsanto at this time.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The last twelve months haven’t been kind to Praxair (PX) and Air Products & Chemicals (APD), but UBS analyst John Roberts and team argue that’s about to change, as they upgrade their shares to Buy from Neutral arguing that their earnings can withstand a slowing global economy:

    In our view, the two stocks are more alike than different. NTM P/Es are within ~0.5 pts of each other. Both stocks have declined ~20% from their historical highs the largest corrections in 20+ years aside from the financial crisis…

    Industrial gas stocks have normally grown through changes in FX, oil & China demand within normal historical ranges. And investor concerns around China forAir Products & Chemicals may still prove much bigger than reality. Nevertheless, the combination of FX & oil sector impacts on Praxair, and FX & China issues for Air Products & Chemicals, have been much larger than previously seen. With oil already down, the dollar already appreciated, & China concerns already heightened we believe forward basis would appear to carry only normal risks (& lower if FX & oil are mean-reverting, which some theories support).

    Normal high single digit EPS growth projected for both in 2017 vs 2016: Four large firms serve 70%+ of the global merchant gas market, and price normally contributes ~2% to growth. Customer older captive units being outsourced contributes another 2%. Secular drivers for oxygen include energy savings (i.e. O2 burns more efficiently than air), life sciences (healthcare & microbial processes) nitrogen secular drivers include increasing purity requirements (food freezing & semiconductors). Topline growth ~2x global GDP more normal, with EPS growth ~2x sales growth due to high fixed costs (key variable costs are inexpensive air & power).

    Financial crisis demand drop was only a few %, in line with global GDP drop Most chemicals volumes dropped 10%+ (some 40%
