Top 10 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2021

When the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in June, ultimately tanking the British pound, traders with access to Cambridge, Massachusetts-based artificial intelligence platform Kensho had a special advantage.

With a few keystrokes on Kensho’s AI-powered platform, traders quickly combed through an intelligence-grade database of information and in seconds learned that populist votes such as Brexit historically led to an extended drop in the local currency, washing out any short-term recovery. That’s exactly what happened in the days and months after Brexit. The pound plunged to three-decade lows in July, sinking to $1.28 versus the dollar, before rallying slightly to $1.33. The currency has been in a slump since then and currently sits at $1.24. It was one of the biggest trades in currency markets since billionaire George Soros broke the Bank of England in 1992.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2021

Dividend stocks are supposed to be boring, right? The conventional wisdom is that they give investors steady dividend payments but not much in the way of growth. Apparently, Medical Properties Trust (NYSE:MPW) hasn’t gotten the message.

Shares of the healthcare-focused real estate investment trust (REIT)recently hit an all-time high. Over the last 12 months, Medical Properties Trust (MPT) is up nearly 50%. But is this under-the-radar healthcare dividend stock still a smart pick to buy?

MPT owns and operates healthcare properties, primarily hospitals, in the U.S. and in a handful of other countries.

Urban Outfitters Inc. (NASDAQ: URBN) is scheduled to release its most recent quarterly results after the markets close on Tuesday. The consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters call for $0.63 in earnings per share (EPS) on $1.08 billion in revenue. In the fourth quarter of last year, the retailer said it had EPS of $0.55 and $1.03 billion in revenue.

This appears to be one of the retailers that faced a tough holiday season. Urban Outfitters felt the sting along with the likes of Macys, Nordstrom and Sears.

As we have said before, retailers have to learn how to survive in this Amazon world, and much of this comes from rolling out omnichannel and e-commerce platforms to reach more consumers. Weve seen Target partner with Shipt and Walmart acquire Jet.com to compete at the next level. However, this can be a problem for retailers without the resources of these big-box giants.

During this holiday season, Urban Outfitters saw comparable sales increasing, but they were not up to par with what was expected. In the two months ended December 31, 2017, total net sales increased 3.6% from the same period of last year. Comparable Retail segment net sales increased 2.0%, driven by strong, double-digit growth in the direct-to-consumer channel, partially offset by negative retail store sales.

    Uber unveiled its IPO on Thursday with a stunning warning to investors: It may never be a profitable company. Although the ride sharing app has 91 million customers and values itself at up to $100 billion, the company has been embroiled in multiple scandals and has struggled to retain those customers in an increasingly competitive environment. Concerns about Uber’s massive valuation has hurt its rival Lyft Inc. (NASDAQ: LYFT), which went public on March 29. Shares of Lyft are trading just above $61, well below the IPO price of $72. Oil prices are continuing their impressive run, the best in three years. WTI crude is flat this morning at $64.52 per barrel, while Brent crude is sitting at $71.38. Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says that oil prices will rocket even higher from here. And if you want to make real money, you need to do this now.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Buy Right Now

You’ll hear a lot in the news about how women continue to suffer from the ever-frustrating wage gap. It’s said that females only earn about 75 to 80 cents for every dollar earned by their similarly qualified male counterparts, and that speaks to a gross inequality that has plagued the workforce for years.

But new data from Credit Loan reveals that in addition to earning less money from the get-go, women are also statistically less likely to be granted raises upon asking. In a recent study, 13.3 percent of men who asked for more money at work got exactly what they wanted. Meanwhile, 12.7 percent got some sort of salary boost, albeit not the ultimate number they were hoping for.

Things didn’t shake out as well for women, however. Among those who asked for raises, only 9.1 percent got precisely what they wanted, while 9.5 percent got a smaller increase than requested.

    Uber unveiled its IPO on Thursday with a stunning warning to investors: It may never be a profitable company. Although the ride sharing app has 91 million customers and values itself at up to $100 billion, the company has been embroiled in multiple scandals and has struggled to retain those customers in an increasingly competitive environment. Concerns about Uber’s massive valuation has hurt its rival Lyft Inc. (NASDAQ: LYFT), which went public on March 29. Shares of Lyft are trading just above $61, well below the IPO price of $72. Oil prices are continuing their impressive run, the best in three years. WTI crude is flat this morning at $64.52 per barrel, while Brent crude is sitting at $71.38. Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says that oil prices will rocket even higher from here. And if you want to make real money, you need to do this now.
