    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Markets are cheering news that the supposed trade war between the United States and China is “on hold,” according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Mnuchin and U.S. President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, announced that both nations have reached an agreement, one that established a framework to help address ongoing trade imbalances between the two countries. The prices of crude oil is in focus after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro won reelection over the weekend. The election featured a very low turnout and a very large outcry that the vote was rigged. Maduro has a 75% disapproval rating and has been the face of the OPEC member’s widespread mismanagement and economic collapse. Prior to the election, a member of the Trump administration said that the United States would not recognize the authenticity of the election. The United States is considering additional sanctions on Venezuela. Today is a major day for mergers and acquisition activity. Today, Blackstone Group LP (NYSE: BX) announced plans to purchase U.S. hotel operator LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE: LHO) for a whopping $3.7 billion.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019: Liquor Stores N.A. Ltd. (LQSIF)

    British Columbia and Alberta have chosen a different strategy where retail sales will be allowed through both public and private stores, similar to its current setup for liquor retail in the provinces. Retailers will have to get their supply of cannabis from the government’s wholesale distribution system, similar to how it works for alcohol now. The government will control online cannabis sales exclusively Our take: British Columbia also announced that physical retailing of cannabis and liquor will have to be separate, meaning stores cannot sell both products. This rule has an impact on existing liquor retailers aiming to convert some of their stores to sell cannabis. Aurora invested in Liquor Stores (renamed to Alcanna (OTCPK:LQSIF)) which has been struggling for years in the liquor business. Other pharmacy chains will also participate in the RFP as we have seen in Loblaw’s recent win in Newfoundland and Labrador. We think for many cannabis companies the path to winning those retail licenses will be a challenging one with the competition from multiple sources. The licenses will be hotly contested given that B.C. is the largest market to allow private retailing, leaving us cautious on those companies betting big on winning those contracts. The likely outcome is that a large number of companies will each win fewer contracts.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

For every investor hoping to find the next Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) success story, there remains a real question if one would even be able to identify the company in its infancy if they saw it being formed. Biglari Holdings, Inc. (BH) remains a controversial investment opportunity that has taken on many familiar attributes of the greater “BH.” Yet, there remains a cloudy haze over the investment that has suppressed the company’s stock for the past half decade. At the core of the issue is the amount of trust investors must inherently place in a young 39-year old named Sardar Biglari.

Biglari Holdings Inc. is a holding company that is led by Founder, Chairman, and CEO Sardar Biglari. His approach and style have led him to be known as a perceived imitator of Warren Buffett. Indeed, apart from the shared initials with Berkshire Hathaway, Biglari Holdings operates as a holding company, invests in diversified array of industries, buys undervalued companies, limits correspondence to letters and SEC filings, maintains a relatively high share price, believes in a tight share structure, and supports a noticeably similar website to the legendary company.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019

"Short Sellers Retreat Amid Rally," ran the headline in the Wall Street Journal.   Curious readers stopped and stared. It was the premise of the headline that arrested them. Who knew that there was even one bear left to give ground at the 100-month mark of the post-2008 levitation?   El toro is the topic at hand. It's a most unusual bull market (we count as one the updrafts in stocks and bonds). An unzestful, low-volume, and low-volatility affair, it seems to belong on a psychiatrist's couch. We write to catalogue its singularities with the purpose of addressing the always pertinent question: What to do with money besides enjoy it?   No. 1 is the zest deficit. Since the S&P 500 Index bottomed at an intraday low of 666.79 on March 6, 2009, the blue chips have appreciated by 271%. The country has grown, too, although – famously – the economic expansion leaves much to be desired. Trailing 12-month earnings for the S&P 500 peaked in the third quarter of 2014, and disappointments abound in the data that purport to measure growth in GDP and productivity.

Top 5 Stocks To Own For 2018

Ben Jacobs, the reporter who was assaulted by Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte, says Gianforte has reneged on what Jacobs believed was a commitment to grant him an interview.

Gianforte, a Republican businessman, was elected to the House on May 25, one day after he body-slammed Jacobs.

Jacobs is now going public about the dispute. He says Gianforte is continuing a “pattern of avoiding responsibility for his actions.”

Gianforte’s team, for its part, says the congressman was never offering an on-the-record interview — but that he will be happy to sit down with Jacobs for an off-the-record meeting. “Congressman Gianforte’s offer to Mr. Jacobs remains on the table,” a spokesman said Tuesday night.

Gianforte has spoken with some members of the media in Montana, but has kept a relatively low profile in his first two months on the job.

On June 12 Gianforte pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge. A Montana judge ordered him to complete 40 hours of community service and attend anger management classes.
