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.
