Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

1. Blame the bonds: The normally boring bond market is causing serious drama on Wall Street.

An avalanche of selling sent the Dow and S&P 500 careening 5% lower last week, one of the stock market’s worst weeks since the 2008 financial crisis.

The culprit: Rapidly rising bond yields are alarming investors who got hooked on a decade of low interest rates.

So what’s going on here? And why the focus on the bond market?

Modern financial markets function on the belief that U.S. government debt is the safest investment on the planet.

Knowing how much they can earn from “risk-free” Treasury bonds allows investors to determine the cost of stocks and other riskier assets. Treasuries serve as the benchmark for all other forms of credit, from junk bonds to mortgages.

“The 10-year Treasury sets the price for every asset in the world,” said Brent Schutte, chief investment strategist at Northwestern Mutual.

That means the surge in the 10-year yield — from 2.4% earlier this year to about 2.8% now — has increased the cost of money generally.

Even in the Middle East, home to some of the world&a;rsquo;s largest oil and gas producers, the clean energy revolution is coming.

Thanks to its fast-growing population and rapid economic growth, its demand for energy is set to grow by 3.5 % a year over the next two decades, according to a new report from Siemens, the German conglomerate, and Masdar, the UAE clean energy developer.

Its energy demand is set to grow by 277GW by 2035, to 483GW. A fifth of that will be renewable, up from just over 5% now. An extra 61GW of solar power is expected to be installed over that period, with a conservative estimate of 27GW of wind, says the report, Middle East Power Outlook 2035, which was released at the start of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, “machinery”, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

    Monday was another positive day for the stock market, with major benchmarks seeing small advances to start the week. Most investors focused on Singapore, where U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Geopolitical issues have weighed on market sentiment for some time, so any sort of favorable resolution to tensions on the nuclear front could be embraced by Wall Street. Still, some companies had bad news today that held back their shares. Adient (NYSE:ADNT), CRISPR Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Raytheon Company(RTN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    As I wrote yesterday, Lockheed’ s older F-16 jet is considered a front runner in the Indian Air Force’s potential $15 billion order for 110 fighter aircraft. Lockheed also produces the more modern (and stealth capable) F-22, and F-35 fighters. Both of these fighters are professionally thought to be effective against Russia’s S-400 long range air defense missile system. That system is currently deployed in western Syria. Last week, Lockheed also won a $247 million contract from NASA to design and build an experimental aircraft that could operate without creating a traditional sonic boom. My price target: $375.

    Raytheon (RTN)

    First off, should the president decide to strike Syria without the use of American pilots, guess who produces the Tomahawk missile? That’s right. These guys. On top of that, you might have noticed that two weeks ago, Poland agreed to spend $4.75 billion on RTN’s Patriot missile defense system. By the way, this is the largest weapons deal in the history of Poland. Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula has not been lost on this former Warsaw Pact nation.

Hot High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Snap Interactive, Inc. (STVI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Vikram Nagarkar]

    According to recent reports, Snap Inc will now look to go public at a valuation of $19 billion to $22 billion, as it goes public under the ticker symbol SNAP on the New York Stock Exchange. Snap Inc’s move to slash its previous seemingly overambitious target of $25 billion comes across as a very good move. Well, there’s no denying the fact that the upcoming Snapchat IPO has generated a lot of investor interest – to the extent that some “overeager” investors even went ahead and bought shares of a similar sounding company,Snap Interactive (OTC:STVI), sending its shares 140% higher. And Snap Interactive’s relatively paltry $50 million market cap may have something to do with it. Be that as it may, Snapchat’s reported initial valuation target of $25 billion was way too ambitious, and there’s no lack of consensus on that front. However, even the scaled down $19 billion target may not be attractive enough.
