  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    There’s more at stake for Huntington Ingalls and fellow shipbuilder General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) beyond the $6.5 billion in lost refueling revenue. A modern aircraft carrier does not sail alone but rather relies on a large number of escorts and affiliated ships that also need to be acquired and staffed. There is also the expense of finding pilots for the large number of planes that are housed on a carrier.

    Monday was an extremely strong day for the stock market, as major indexes finished well above where they started the session. Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

After making many acquisitions over the past few decades to cover millions of Americans’ health insurance, UnitedHealth is also quite well-known to retirees for its Medicare Supplement Plans offered through AARP.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    In PMT, Honeywell’s process-solutions rival Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) continues to report strong results. But whereas Emerson’s CEO David Farr is expecting to benefit from relatively stronger LNG (liquefied natural gas) spending in the current cycle, Honeywell’s LNG revenue accounts for just 5% of its PMT sales, and it’s more heavily exposed to petrochemical and refining spending.

By contrast, Wendy’s (NYSE: WEN) has 6,700 global locations that generate $1.6 billion in annual sales and $230 million in free cash flow — not to mention a dividend that was just raised by 18%.

Top 5 Stocks To Buy Right Now

Four major tech companies have sent a last minute letter to the Office of the US Trade Representative asking to be exempted from a possible new round of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

The companies, Dell, (DVMT) Cisco (CSCO), Juniper Networks (JNPR)and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), are worried the tariffs will increase the costs of their networking equipment, damaging the companies’ bottom lines and leading to possible US job losses.

They say the increase in prices would negatively impact customers, small businesses, internet service providers, and data centers. The tariffs would hinder innovations important to the US government, such as cloud computing and the rollout of 5G networks, according to the letter.

“If USTR were to impose a 10-25% additional duty on networking products and accessories, it would cause broad, disproportionate economic harm to U.S. interests, including our companies and U.S. workers, our customers, U.S. consumers, and broader U.S. economic and strategic priorities,” said the letter to US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Thursday.

    Stocks to Watch Today: KHC, HD, JWN, M, AAPL
    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc.(NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more. Earnings season may be winding down, but concerns about the U.S. brick-and-mortar retail industry are always high. This week, Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD), Nordstrom Inc.(NYSE: JWN), and Macy’s Inc.
