    Friday was a good day on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average once again climbing triple digits and other major benchmarks following suit with similar-sized percentage gains. The U.S. economy continued to move forward last month, and the latest jobs numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed ongoing progress in creating new positions and reducing unemployment rates. Yet some stocks weren’t able to join in the celebration that accompanied the strong economic report. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Golar LNG Partners (NASDAQ:GMLP), and Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE:ANF) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    The stock market continued to lose ground on Thursday, with major benchmarks once again posting significant declines. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished near its lows of the day, falling 546 points despite multiple efforts to cut its losses during the session. Even though most indexes are still up for 2018, investor confidence seems to be eroding badly after nearly a decade of bull market gains. Nevertheless, some good news from a handful of individual stocks let them buck the downtrend and move higher. Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), Green Plains (NASDAQ:GPRE), and RH (NYSE:RH) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Hot Value Stocks To Buy Right Now: CACI International, Inc.(CACI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Max Byerly]

    CACI INTERNATIONAL INC Common Stock (NYSE:CACI) has been assigned a consensus recommendation of “Buy” from the seventeen ratings firms that are covering the firm, Marketbeat.com reports. One equities research analyst has rated the stock with a sell recommendation, four have assigned a hold recommendation, eleven have issued a buy recommendation and one has assigned a strong buy recommendation to the company. The average twelve-month target price among analysts that have issued ratings on the stock in the last year is $190.23.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Let’s start with the story that sparked the rally. Last night, Reuters cited three sources “familiar with the matter” saying that Engility “is exploring a sale” — perhaps to CACI International (NYSE:CACI) or Science Applications International Corp (NYSE:SAIC), two peer defense contractors that are both three to four times larger than Engility.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    That reasoning has fueled the rush of consolidation and explains why we are likely to see further deals in the quarters to come. Specifically, there’s CACI International (NYSE:CACI), the rumored runner-up for Engility. CACI also made an unsuccessful attempt to break up General Dynamics’ deal for CSRA, and will now face a landscape with three pure-play companies — plus a General Dynamics that is significantly larger than CACI — and seems destined to act.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    CACI (NYSE:CACI) shares hit a new 52-week high and low on Thursday . The company traded as low as $168.20 and last traded at $167.30, with a volume of 993 shares changing hands. The stock had previously closed at $167.55.

    Those deals clearly have others in the industry scrambling, with CACI International (NYSE:CACI) launching an unsuccessful attempt to outbid General Dynamics for CSRA.

Top High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The year 2018, after having started on a positive note, witnessed a sharp correction in stock indices post the Union Budget. The Nifty slipped by around 1,000 points from its all-time high which stood at around 11,000 nearly two months ago. On the other hand, Sensex slipped by more than 3,000 points from its all-time high. Over the last two months, markets were down approximately 10 percent, said Rahul Jain Head of Personal Wealth Advisory, Edelweiss Wealth Management, in a recent interview with Moneycontrol.

He spoke about about how an investor should ride out this market volatility and review ones portfolio during market corrections.

Here are the key takeaways from Jain’s interview:

A market correction is a normal phenomenon, which usually happens at regular intervals. Such corrections in structural bull markets are good as it helps to get away with froth from the stock market. Those who are invested through SIP mode should continue under the current scenario. If an investor is planning to pump in more capitalthen he/she should ideally wait for a month as markets could witness a further correction and NIFTY may lower to 9,600 points. During this period investors can buy more stocks which can be an ideal time to increase equity exposure towards ones portfolio.

    Markets are digesting the ongoing roller coaster that is President Trump’s trade policy. Recently, Trump slapped the EU, Canada, and Mexico with heavy tariffs on steel and aluminum. At the end of the event, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that all seven member nations signed a summit communique despite ongoing trade tensions. However, President Trump has now claimed that Trudeau lied to him about certain policies. This ongoing political drama will extend through the week. Trump has arrived in Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. This will be the first meeting between an American president and a sitting North Korean leader. Ahead of the meeting, Trump said that he will know “within a minute” whether North Korean officials are serious about giving up their weapons and potentially liberalizing their economy. The other major story to watch this week is the meeting of the Fed Open Market Committee, which kicks off on Tuesday. The U.S. central bank is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in 2018. On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will likely announce a hike of 0.25% to the benchmark rate of 2%. This would also mark the seventh hike since December 2015. Markets will be looking for clues during Powell’s conference to determine how many additional times the Fed plans to raise interest rates during the final six months of the year.

    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).

    If youre not familiar, the VOO is one of three S&P 500-tracking ETFs the other two are the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) and the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV). Each operates slightly differently, but at the end of the day, each provides very honest, tight tracking of the S&P 500. The VOO is simply the cheapest at just 0.05% in expenses, which accounts for most of the slight performance edge over its ETF brethren.
