    Arrow Electronics (NYSE:ARW) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Arrow Electronics reported better-than-expected results for first-quarter 2018. The figures also came above the mid-point of the company’s guidance ranges and marked year-over-year improvement. Moreover, the electronic component distributor provided an optimistic guidance for second-quarter 2018. We believe that the company’s core strength in providing best-in-class services and easy-to-acquire technologies should drive growth in the long run. Moreover, the company has secured a significant market share through a broad portfolio of products and services, and continued efforts to maximize consumer satisfaction. Additionally, incremental sales from strategic acquisitions and partnerships are expected to boost the top line. However, an uncertain economic environment, high debt burden and competition remain the concerns. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry in the last one year.”

    Shen: Exactly. So, we looked at the theater operators and what they’re offering. There’s been some consolidation. One of the theater chains that we talked about on this similar show last year is no longer in the running as a public company in terms of the stocks. First, with Cinemark (NYSE:CNK), one of the two large remaining chains, it has an offering called Movie Club. This launched last year. $8.99 per month. What you get is one 2D ticket that rolls over if it’s unused. You can build those rollover tickets if you don’t go that often. Plus, 20% off concessions, and there’s no online fees for when you buy those tickets. Then, you can get up to two additional add-on tickets for $8.99 each.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2019: Energy XXI Ltd.(EXXI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market was mostly higher on Monday, with market participants celebrating favorable economic news on the consumer front and looking forward to another round of positive earnings reports when third-quarter earnings season starts early next month. Tax cuts have helped corporate earnings throughout 2018, and that’s generally helped to lift the overall market. Yet even with several major market benchmarks at or near record levels, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the gains today. Brown-Forman (NYSE:BF-B), Acorda Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ACOR), and Energy XXI Gulf Coast (NASDAQ:EXXI) were among the worst performers on the day.

    Only months after a standstill agreement between the two companies expired, biopharma giant Roche Holdings (NASDAQOTH:RHHBY) has agreed to acquire Foundation Medicine (NASDAQ:FMI) lock, stock, and barrel. Roche had already owned more than half of Foundation Medicine, so the decision to buy the company outright shows it’s more confident in the future of personalized cancer treatment than ever before.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Own For 2019

Las Vegas casinos have some bargains on hotel rooms right now. That sent the stocks of casino operators on a wild ride Wednesday.

Shares of Caesar’s Entertainment fell as much as 24% Wednesday and trading was halted several times.

The company posted generally strong results early Wednesday. It recovered from a large loss last year to report a narrow profit.

But during a midday call with analysts, CFO Eric Hession mentioned that the company was seeing “rate pressure” on rooms because of weak bookings along the Las Vegas strip, and warned that revenue per room would be essentially flat in the third quarter. That sent shares of Caesars (CZR) and other casino stocks like MGM Resorts (MGM), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Penn National Gaming (PENN) tumbling

Caesar’s CEO Mark Frissora had to assure investors that the company sees things returning to normal at the end of the year, and that it was sticking with its full-year guidance.

“We know what the bookings look like through the end of the year. And so we don’t have concern in our forecast,” he said. “We said that we saw some weakness in July and August, but then strengthening in September.”

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Own For 2019: Seadrill Limited(SDRL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jason Hall]

    As of 11:45 a.m. EDT today, a quick glance at any of the major financial websites for the share price of Seadrill Ltd. (NYSE:SDRL) makes it look like the stock is up an insane 21,253%. That’s based on yesterday’s closing price of $0.12 per share, and the current price of $18. But a whole lot of other things happened overnight, completely changing the math based on the company’s emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday.

    Thursday afternoon, the energy shares rose 1.16 percent. Meanwhile, top gainers in the sector included Seadrill Limited (NYSE: SDRL), up 33 percent, and Ultra Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: UPL) up 14 percent.

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Last year, net income dropped from $146.4 million to $101.2 million, creating the sharp trend line seen above. The 2017 earnings dip can be traced to numerous factors, including higher interest expense, a reduction in tanker income, fewer ships in the fleet on charter to former parent Frontline Shipping (NYSE:FRO), and the bankruptcy filing of Seadrill Ltd. (NYSE:SDRL). Seadrill’s reorganization has impacted Ship Finance’s offshore revenue, as it has three out of four offshore drilling rigs on charter to affiliates of Seadrill.

    Penske Automotive Group (NYSE:PAG) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Of late, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Penske Automotive’s annual earnings has been going down. The company retail automotive segment is driving revenues due to its widened geographic presence, and varied product and service range. It also increases it dividend payouts in almost every quarter and also repurchases shares to boost shareholders’ confidence. Penske Automotive makes frequent acquisitions to expand its presence in the United States and the United Kingdom. It experienced positive revenue growth in all the business segments along with strong improvement in used-vehicle supercenter business. However, rising competition and increasing price transparency can lead to lower selling prices, thus affecting the profits of the company. Also, over a month, shares of Penske Automotive have underperformed the industry it belongs to.”

5 Lessons From the Life of David Noble

(Bloomberg) — The Trump White House and congressional Republicans were at odds Thursday over whether to try for another vote on changing the Affordable Care Act next week, indicating that neither side had a clear strategy for moving on one of the president’s central campaign promises.

A White House aide said President Donald Trump’s administration expects the House to vote soon after lawmakers return from recess on Tuesday, and draft language could be circulated as soon as Thursday night. Success would give the president a legislative victory to boast about before his 100th day in office April 29.

Top Medical Stocks To Own Right Now: CytRx Corporation(CYTR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another under-$10 biotechnology player that’s starting to trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade is CytRx (CYTR), which has an oncology pipeline that includes two programs in clinical development for cancer indications: aldoxorubicin and tamibarotene. This stock has been moving to the upside during the last three months, with shares up by 21%.

    If you take a look at the chart for CytRx, you’ll notice that this stock has been trending sideways inside of a consolidation chart pattern for the last two months, with shares moving between $2.27 on the downside and $2.68 on the upside. That consolidation pattern has occurred right above this stock’s 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Shares of CYTR have now started to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $2.49 a share. That move is quickly pushing CYTR within range of triggering an even bigger breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern.

    Market players should now look for long-biased trades in CYTR if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.68 to $2.80 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 154,838 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CYTR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.20 to $4 a share.

    Traders can look to buy CYTR off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 200-day at $2.33 a share or below more support at $2.27 a share. One can also buy CYTR off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Top Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Theres reason tothink that President Trump might target uranium imports for tariffs after imposing them on solar equipment back in January and then another announcing another round late last week on steel and aluminum (China has alreadyresponded by announcing planned tariffs on imports of U.S. pork, recycled aluminum, steel pipes, fruit and wine). At first glance, you might think that wouldcause concern forinvestors in small cap mining stocks like Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX-V: AAZ; OTCMKTS: AZURF) which is focused on developing critical clean energy elements (namely lithium, uranium and cobalt plus other critical clean energy elements) mostly in Canada.

However, Trump didquickly declared a temporary exemption from his tariffs for the European Union and other nations like Australia and South Korea as the tariffs are clearly meant to hit China. The NAFTA countries of Canada and Mexico were also exempted; but those exemptions”are not open-ended” and will depend on whether changes are made to NAFTA that will satisfy Trump.

Top Clean Energy Stocks For 2019: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Smith]

    Shares in Sohu.com (SOHU) continued their rapid rise, hitting yet another fresh 52-week high during the session, as the company announced the special dividend from Sohou yesterday (press release located here). Sohu.com will receive nearly $161.2 million in the transaction which is part of the overall $400 million deal with Tencent (TCEHY.PK) which was announced not too long ago. These are exciting times in the internet space as we move from computers to mobile devices, but China’s internet landscape looks like the ‘Wild West’ right now and we expect to see further deals as companies jockey for position in their respective niches and consolidation begins as the larger players look to step up growth and gain exposure to new business segments.
