Best China Stocks To Invest In Right Now

China has taken a substantial lead in robotics, although the opinion comes from the Chinese themselves. While the claim may be true, it is certainly self-serving.

The race for the lead in robotics had several countries claiming large advances. The same holds true for some universities and private research organizations. All in all, since robotics is not a single industry, one group could be ahead in a small part of the business but well behind in others.

There is a second debate at the center of the robotics race. That is whether robots will trigger the unemployment of tens, if not hundreds, of millions of people worldwide, or whether robots will become assistants to people that help them do their jobs even menial ones that do not require education or training. The jury will not be able to settle on who is right about thisuntil there are enough robots to affect the labor market one way or another.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Uranium has been back in the news lately, not only due to its relationship with geopolitical maneuvering concerning nuclear weapons, but also as a necessary commodity in the global quest for clean, renewable energy.

The United States is the world’s largest producer of nuclear power, accounting for more than 30% of worldwide nuclear generation of electricity. While there has been little growth in new reactors being built in the last quarter century, the increasing demand for clean energy worldwide is sparking a demand for uranium to be enriched as nuclear fuel. Companies that mine and produce uranium, like Azincourt Uranium, Inc. (OTC: AZURF), are seeing the commodity investment market take a renewed interest in them, with uranium spot prices trending upward in the first quarter of 2017.

Banks and other financials fell 1.4% at the close, while technology gained 0.9% and consumer discretionary rose 0.5%. Eight of the eleven sectors of the 500 lost ground.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Sonoco Products Company(SON)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Deutsche Bank’s Debbie Jones and team contend that Sonoco’s (SON) sale of its plastic-container business to Australia’s Amcor is a sign that M&A is in the offing. They explain why:

    Sonoco announced (9/1) that it is selling its Rigid Plastics Blow Molding operations to Amcor (AMC.AU) for $280M. The transaction price represents a multiple of ~8.0x LTM EBITDA. The business had annual sales of ~$210M and consisted of six production sites in the US and one in Canada. Blow molding operations represented ~10% of Sonocos Consumer Packaging segment sales and EBITDA. The transaction is expected to close in Q4. We expect the proceeds to be used to for M&A focused in flexible packaging, thermoforming and temperature-assured packaging.

    We dont believe Sonoco considered its blow molding operations essential to its growth strategy. This standalone business is also more capital intensive compared to some of its other plastic packaging businesses and SON held a small position in the overall market. Ultimately, the company decided it wants to focus its capital in higher growth platforms. We do not expect the divestment to reduce resin buying scale for Sonoco’s remaining assets given different resin buying. Note that with the divestiture of blow molding and the Canton closures plant (divested in Feb. 2015), this makes the ~$100M reels business the last standalone business in the portfolio, but we do not expect this to be divested in the near-term unless cash is needed for much larger M&A.

    Shares of Sonoco have gained 1.3% to $52.49 at 2:12 p.m. today.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

In his annual shareholder letter, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon pointed to data showing a radically shrinking U.S. stock market, echoing an increasingly common refrain on Wall Street and in corporate America. Dimon is working alongside business luminaries such as Warren Buffett, BlackRock’s Larry Fink and GM CEO Mary Barra to promote long-term stock market investment and regulations that will make it easier and more rewarding for companies to sell their shares on public markets.

On Wednesday morning, the U.S. markets lost another stock when European consumer products conglomerate JAB Holding agreed to buy Panera Bread for $7.5 billion, ending the popular soup, sandwich and salad chain’s stellar over-quarter century run on public markets. There are many causes of the shrinking stock market, for instance the administrative costs of being publicly traded and strict regulations surrounding investor communications, but JAB’s emergence and its deal for Panera Bread points to the biggest culprit.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Anadarko Petroleum Corporation(APC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One of the largest projects is the Saddlehorn Pipeline, which Magellan is building with Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). Both Plains All American Pipeline and Magellan own 40% of the project, which puts their total investment at $230 million apiece. They expect the project to be fully operational early next year, which is noteworthy given its robust first-year economics. Magellan estimates that it will earn eight times EBITDA on the capital deployed, or roughly $28.8 million in annual EBITDA apiece for Magellan and Plains All American Pipeline on their investment.

    Shares of Sanchez Energy Corp (NYSE: SN) got a boost, shooting up 28 percent to $11.11. Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) announced the sale of Eagleford Shale assets to Sanchez Energy and Blackstone Energy Partners for $2.3 billion.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Sanchez Energy’s stock has continued to run higher in 2017 and is up nearly 50% since the start of the year. Fueling that surge is the announcement that the company found an exceptional place to put its liquidity to work. In mid-January, the company unveiled a strategic partnership with a private equity giant, Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX), to acquire Anadarko Petroleum’s (NYSE:APC) Eagle Ford shale assets for $2.3 billion. Under the terms of the deal, Sanchez and Blackstone entered a 50-50 partnership to own the Anadarko assets, which consist of 155,000 net acres that currently produce 67,000 BOE/D and hold more than 4,000 drilling locations that are economic at current prices. Sanchez will finance its share of the deal with cash on hand, a new bank lending arrangement, and a preferred equity issuance to Blackstone’s credit arm.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Sonoco Products Company(SON)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Deutsche Bank’s Debbie Jones and team contend that Sonoco’s (SON) sale of its plastic-container business to Australia’s Amcor is a sign that M&A is in the offing. They explain why:

    Sonoco announced (9/1) that it is selling its Rigid Plastics Blow Molding operations to Amcor (AMC.AU) for $280M. The transaction price represents a multiple of ~8.0x LTM EBITDA. The business had annual sales of ~$210M and consisted of six production sites in the US and one in Canada. Blow molding operations represented ~10% of Sonocos Consumer Packaging segment sales and EBITDA. The transaction is expected to close in Q4. We expect the proceeds to be used to for M&A focused in flexible packaging, thermoforming and temperature-assured packaging.

    We dont believe Sonoco considered its blow molding operations essential to its growth strategy. This standalone business is also more capital intensive compared to some of its other plastic packaging businesses and SON held a small position in the overall market. Ultimately, the company decided it wants to focus its capital in higher growth platforms. We do not expect the divestment to reduce resin buying scale for Sonoco’s remaining assets given different resin buying. Note that with the divestiture of blow molding and the Canton closures plant (divested in Feb. 2015), this makes the ~$100M reels business the last standalone business in the portfolio, but we do not expect this to be divested in the near-term unless cash is needed for much larger M&A.

    Shares of Sonoco have gained 1.3% to $52.49 at 2:12 p.m. today.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Investors are regaining confidence, squeezing pessimists who say the economy remains sluggish outside of Germany and point to record-low trading volume as a lack of conviction in the Euro Stoxxs 61 percent rally of the past two years. Besides gains in stocks from Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA to Renault SA (RNO), yields on Spanish and Italian bonds have declined to a two-year low compared with German bunds and the euro has strengthened 4.6 percent to $1.35 in the past six months.

Top 10 Medical Stocks For 2018

Despite staggering increases in drug prices, Americans still aren’t living as long as those in other countries. And the worst part is they’re paying more, too…

One out of every four Americans reported that the cost of healthcare is their primary concern right now, according to a January 2017 Monmouth University poll. In fact, anxiety about paying medical bills now outpaces job and unemployment concerns, as well as worries about paying everyday household bills.

And it’s no wonder: In August, prices for medicine, doctor’s appointments, and health insurance rose at rates not seen since 1984.

Drug costs, in particular, are growing by double and triple digits each year. Back in October 2016, The Fiscal Times reported that specialty drug prices grew 18.9% and are projected to increase another 18.7% this year. Additionally, it reported that generic drug prices are expected to increase another 11% this year after already going up 11.3% in 2016.

    That being the case, it wouldnt take substantial market share gains for AMD to reverse the multi-year decline in its processor business, as performance/watt is what will drive adoption from key PC makers like Dell, HP Inc (NYSE:HPQ)and Lenovo. AMD hasnt been very competitive in the MPU (microprocessor unit) segment for quite a while, but given the recent node shift to 14nm FinFET over at GlobalFoundries, and mention of new architecture by AMD earlier this year at COMPUTEX Taiwan, I get the impression that performance of Summit Ridge, i.e. Zen will match Skylake and will perhaps come in slightly slower than Kaby Lake.

    HP Inc. (HPQ) rose to the top of the S&P 500 Wednesday.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    The shares climbed 48 cents, or 2.7%, to $18.02, compared to the S&P 500, which lost 8.85 points, or 0.38%, to 2344.93.

    HP was helped by data from IDC that showed the firm regained the crown of top PC vendor from rival Levono Group in Q1.

    In addition, Morgan Stanleys Katy Huberty reiterated an Overweight rating on HP and increased her price target to $22 from $19:

    In the past 18 months, HP removed over $1B of excess costs and refocused investment dollars on driving innovation across printing and personal systems. Recent product refreshes, including JetIntelligence laser printers, Sprocket mobile photo printer, and premium and gaming/VR-focused PCs are now driving share gains and a return to top-line growth (total revenue grew 2% and 4% Y/Y in last two fiscal quarters, respectively). By reinventing HP, we believe management is heralding a new era for the company whereby investors can expect greater confidence in top-line stabilization as well as earnings and FCF durability.

Top 10 Medical Stocks For 2018: Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    The Dow utility average ended last week at a stabilizing 639.95 after trading as low as 616.19 on Nov. 14. Keep in mind that a “death cross” was confirmed on election day, when the 50-day simple moving average fell below the 200-day simple moving average, indicating that lower prices are likely ahead. The 200-day is now at 666.30. The utility average has returned to my range of key levels of 635.23 and 670.81, which remain magnets for the remainder of 2016. This week’s value level is above the Nov. 14 low at 620.87. Investors seeking the safety of dividends can trade the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLU) , which is a basket of 28 utility stocks.

    Although there is a lot of hype surrounding Virtual Reality (VR) and Facebook’s(NSDQ:FB) Oculus Rift, I have to say that this is not a game changer. In fact, it has been around before. Nintendo was one of the first companies to do this with their virtual boy. However, the outing was considered a colossal failure due to the high price and nascent technology. As times have changed, the capabilities of this technology have gotten better. However, pricing may be the ultimate determinant of who succeeds or wins. Here’s why the Oculus acquisition may turn out to be a bad move and may hurt FB stock.
