Top Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now


House Speaker Paul Ryan and his policy staff are set to meet Monday evening with Trump’s top aides to review just how House Republicans want to overhaul the tax code.

Their ideas are laid out in their “Better Way” blueprint for tax reform.

They and Trump generally agree about headline changes — e.g., streamline and simplify the code, lower tax burdens — and they even agree on some specific measures. But there’s still a lot of daylight between them on key issues.


Here are some key highlights from the House Republicans’ blueprint and how they compare with Trump’s latest proposals.

Cut number of tax rates

The House GOP blueprint reduces the number of tax rates from seven to three — 12%, 25% and 33%. That’s well below today’s top rates of 36% and 39.6%. But the lowest rate is higher than the 10% rate in place today.

In the latest version of Trump’s tax reform proposal, he raised the three individual income tax rates he’d originally proposed (10%, 20%, 25%) to conform to those in the House plan.

    Frontline might be evaluating a new tanker company target such as Gener8 Maritime Inc (NYSE: GNRT), away from DHT Holdings Inc (NYSE: DHT), Lewis said. This was substantiated by the fact that Frontline sold 1.7 million shares of DHT in March, followed by 2.4 million shares in April and May.

Top Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Leidos Holdings, Inc.(LDOS)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Where we are concerned: 1. Ex-Joint Strike Fighter portfolio is average. There are few major growth differentiators after F-35; and actually headwinds in Aeronautics specifically, including C-5 and F-16. 2. Consensus EPS and cash flow estimate headwinds. The final Leidos Holdings (LDOS)-Lockheed Martin numbers are likely dilutive to 2016, so guidance will come down. The $1.5bn 2018 cash pension contribution means lower 2018 free cash and a weaker 5-year cash trajectory than peers. 3. Valuation tough. Lockheed Martin trades at 24X CY17E P/E ex pension. While we shy away from valuation concerns at the trough of the Defense cycle, this is more expensive than other Defense stocks.
