    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Last night, President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. This was the first meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. Following the agreement, analysts noted that the document signed by both parties included no concrete details for achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. Trump responded to criticism by saying he is fully confident that the Korean dictatorship will follow through. A U.S. district court will rule on whether to approve an $85 billion merger between AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX).

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

I recently published a screen showing how one can make money using data from Wall Street analysts and was intrigued to see Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) on the list of passing stocks. That caught me by surprise, not because there’s anything wrong with BRK.B but because it’s not the sort of stock I typically associate with any aspect of the sell side. Motivated by curiosity, I decided to take a fresh look at Berkshire’s fundamentals in a way I hadn’t since the late 1990s, when I covered the company at Value Line.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil.

3 Things to Watch in the Stock Market This Week

Stocks were little changed last week despite a sharp jump during Friday’s trading session following positive economic news. That boost, plus generally positive earnings reports from some of the market’s biggest players, still left both the Dow Jones Industrial Average(DJINDICES:^DJI) and the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX:^GSPC)just modestly lower so far in 2018.

Earnings season continues at peak pace over the next few trading days, with hundreds of companies set to report updated business trends. A few of the most anticipated releases this week will be coming fromDisney (NYSE:DIS), TripAdvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP), and NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA).

Disney’s ESPN fix

Disney posts its earnings results after the market closes on Tuesday in a report that should be packed with news for investors. The media giant has a lot on its plate right now, after all. Its new ESPN app marks its boldest attempt yet to bypass the traditional network ecosystem that has produced such steady profits for the company for decades.

Early results from that direct-to-consumer service could inform management’s thinking as they prepare for an even bigger bet, a stand-alone TV streaming app, set to launch sometime in 2019.

Meanwhile, investors will be watching for signs of growth at Disney’s parks and resorts business, which played a key role in pushing earnings slightly higher last quarter. And CEO Bob Iger and his team will likely provide an update on their proposed $50 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox that, among other things, should keep Disney comfortably on top of the global box office industry.

TripAdvisor’s growth pace

The online travel booking market is huge, and growing, but TripAdvisor hasn’t benefited much from its leading industry position. In fact, sales growth slowed to just 5% in 2017 while profitability dove.

In response, CEO Steve Kaufer and his team are taking a new approach to the business that prioritizes profitability, likely at the expense of sales gains. Investors saw early results from that strategic shift in February when the company paired rising profit margin in its core hotel business with a decline in hotel shopper traffic growth to 3% from 7%. Shareholders will be looking for more progress along these lines in TripAdvisor’s Tuesday afternoon earnings release.

At the same time, executives have been encouraged with the demand they’re seeing in the non-hotel segment that includes things like attractions, tours, and restaurant bookings. This division has become a big source of revenue growth for the company and might soon start generating earnings to go along with those impressive sales gains.

NVDIA’s outlook

Few stocks are as loved by Wall Street right now as semiconductor giant NVIDIA, whose next-generation chips have a good shot at powering growth industries ranging from AI to autonomous driving to cryptocurrencies. Yet it was soaring revenue in its core gaming segment that played the biggest role in the company’s epic fiscal 2018 that included a 41% sales spike as net income jumped to $3.1 billion from $1.9 billion in the prior year.

On Thursday the chipmaker is expected to extend that positive momentum into fiscal 2019, with consensus estimates targeting a 49% sales increase to $2.9 billion as earnings almost double to $1.45 per share. Whether the stock continues its epic run, on the other hand, will depend on the company’s ability to continue trouncing expectations by delivering market-leading chips that its customers demand.

&l;strong&g;No Restrictions&l;/strong&g;

The way the act is written there are no restrictions on cooperative dividends – no requirement for W-2 wages or depreciable assets once taxpayer is over an income threshold and even more intriguing no restriction of the fields of endeavor that generate the cooperative dividends.&a;nbsp; Once taxpayers are above the income threshold, income from the fields of law and health and several others generally does not qualify for the deduction, but those restrictions do not affect qualified cooperative dividends.
