Warren Buffett warned students about the perils of using debt and leverage decades ago using Donald Trump as a negative case study.

Buffett was asked by a Notre Dame student about Trump’s business troubles during a question and answer session in 1991. Trump’s Atlantic City Taj Mahal casino filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection later that year.

“Where did Donald Trump go wrong? The big problem with Donald Trump was he never went right. He basically overpaid for properties, but he got people to lend him the money. He was terrific at borrowing money. If you look at his assets, and what he paid for them, and what he borrowed to get them, there was never any real equity there,” Buffett said, according to a transcript published by former hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson. “I’ve seen more people fail because of liquor and leverage leverage being borrowed money. Donald Trump failed because of leverage. He simply got infatuated with how much money he could borrow, and he did not give enough thought to how much money he could pay back.”

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2018: Brady Corporation(BRC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Robert Baird announced on Friday that it has cut its rating on Brady Corp (BRC).

    The firm has downgraded BRC from “Outperform” to “Neutral,” and has given the company a $33 price target. This price target suggests a 8% upside from the stock’s current price of $30.52.

    Analysts see the company’s WPS segment growing faster than expected.

    Brady shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock is down 9% YTD.

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Before the opening bell on Thursday, identification solutions provider Brady Corp (BRC) posted a loss in the fourth quarter, despite a rise in revenues, as it was negatively impacted by a number of charges. However, excluding these charges, the company was able to top Wall Street analysts’ earnings and sales estimates. Nonetheless, BRC shares are plummeting in Thursday’s trading.

    The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based company posted a loss from continuing operations of $176.2 million, or $3.41 per share, in the fourth quarter, versus last year’s fourth quarter earnings from continuing operations of $20.9 million, or 40 cents per share. Furthermore, Brady posted a net loss of $177.2 million, or $3.43 per share, compared to net earnings of $11.6 million, or 22 cents per share, in the same period a year ago.

    The fourth quarter loss includes non-cash impairment charges of $204.4 million, $15.6 million in restructuring charges, and $4 million in acquisition-related charges. Excluding these charges, Brady Corp said earnings would have been 53 cents per share in the quarter. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, the company was expected to earn an adjusted 51 cents per share in the fourth quarter.

    The company’s fourth quarter sales came in at $309.1 million, up 15% from $269.1 million in sales posted last year. On average, analysts were expecting the company to see $307.13 million in revenues for the quarter.

    Looking ahead, Brady Corp. sees fiscal 2014 earnings coming in between $1.80 and $2.00 per share, below the analysts’ view of $2.30 per share.

    Brady Corp shares were down $1.71, or 5.25%, during early morning trading on Thursday. The stock is up 7.93% year-to-date.

  • [By Mike Deane]

    For the 28th year in a row, Brady Corp (BRC) has increased its dividend payout to investors.

    BRC shares were down 40 cents, or 1.23%, by market close on Wednesday. YTD, the company’s stock is down over 4%.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2018: NXP Semiconductors N.V.(NXPI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The offer has two caveats. First, Qualcomm’s bid for NXP Semiconductor N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) must either be completed at that price or rejected. Second, Qualcomm may not delay or cancel its scheduled annual meeting set for March 6.

  • [By Jack Foley]

    Furthermore, the NXP Semiconductor (NSDQ:NXPI) acquisition should enable Qualcomm to really become a frontrunner in the lucrative automotive area. There have been rumors that the deal could hit some roadblocks but I see the acquisition eventually going through sometime this year. Qualcomm will want to push its processor business into the automotive market and NXP with its extensive number of loyal distributorsand customers should be able to help here in a big way. Billions are being plowed into theautonomous vehicle market at present and first mover advantage is going to be critical. One would feel that the combined technologies of the Qualcomm/NXP partnership should gain ground here as theIoT phenomenon continues to gain traction. Qualcomm already has a presence here with its Snapdragon processors in some Android Auto IVI systems. For a start, if NXP’sRFCMOS chips (which do away with multi-chip systems) can meaningfully add value to Qualcomm’s current offering in this space, the new partnership could leapfrog a number of competitors in a short span of time, which will be one more positive for QCOM stock.

  • [By Andrew Tonner]

    One of the best ways to invest in broad-based movements such as the IoT is by buying shares in the companies that supply the hardware and infrastructure powering the trend — such asSkyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) and NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI). Let’s dig into each company to see what makes them two of the top IoT investments on the market today.

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) stock price has now fallen below the crucial 20-day, 50-day and 100-day moving averages. Its legal issues have again weighed heavy on QCOM stock of late. QCOM stock has a crucial support at the $52.66 level, which is just below the last closing price (on April 13). Qualcomm stock has not fallen below these levels in 2017.A fall below this level means QCOM stock could drop, moving close to itsone-year lows. However, two popular momentum indicators Bollinger Bands and Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicators suggest that QCOM stock is oversold. The technicals depict mixed scenario for QCOM stock. QCOM stock has lost momentum going into its Q2 earnings, with the stock losing more than 5% in the last 5 trading sessions and is still down more than 10.5% YTD. QCOM stock still makes a good long-term investment, especially with the $47B NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI) acquisition lined up. The smartphone chipset maker’s stock is also named the top dividend stock with insider buying and has adividend yield of 4.27%. Long-term investors with a high-risk appetite might relish buying QCOM stock at such low levels. However, it would be prudent for risk-averse investors to stay on the sidelines till the Q2 earnings, which would give a better picture of Qualcomm’s present legal woes and its future implications.

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    This has the potential to offset the sluggishness in demand of smartphone chips around the world. Also, certain performance benchmarks of Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor 835 are making positive waves. A lot is riding on Qualcomm’s $47B acquisition of NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI), which it plans to complete by the end of the year. This acquisition would open up the high potential IoT segment as well for the smartphone chipmaker. All of these positives have been overshadowed by Qualcomm Inc’s legal troubles, which could hit its licensing business hard. Qualcomm depends heavily on its licensing business to generate bulk of its pre-tax profits. In the most recent fiscal year, Qualcomm’s QTL segment accounted for 78% of its pre-tax profits. The verdicts in the legal issues faced by Qualcomm will not be out anytime soon. These tend to be long drawn courtroom battles, and have cast a spell of uncertainty over Qualcomm’s licensing business.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI) is knee-deep in a pending merger with sector rival Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM). There was a time when it would have made sense to pick up NXP shares, even if you missed the 25% buyout surge in September.

Top 5 Bank Stocks To Invest In 2018

We all know financial stocks have gone through the roof since President Trump’s win. So the question becomes: what do we do with these companies now?

There’s no one answer for every financial stock, of course.

Some are still great, undervalued buys—but there are two that have gotten grossly overvalued and should be avoided, or sold if you hold them. (Below, I’ll reveal 3 better high-yield stocks to buy instead.)

These 2 Financials Are Headed for Trouble

Bank of America Corp (BAC) is the first bank on my hit list.

A Breathtaking Rise

After spending most of 2016 in the red, BAC has soared more than 37% in three months. Nothing much has changed at the bank; it’s just riding a wave of euphoria as investors bet that Trump’s America will mean higher interest rates and fewer regulations, driving up BAC’s earnings.
