KEY EVENTS TO WATCH FOR:
Monday, April 29–Jim Wyckoff’s Morning Web Log

* LATEST MARKET DEVELOPMENTS *

In overnight news, Italian bond yields fell to a 2.5-year low at the latest 10-year bond auction as investors embraced the new Italian coalition government. A German short-term government debt auction Monday saw funding costs at the lowest level since November, at virtually zero return for the debt buyers. This underscores the keener European investor uncertainty regarding the overall health of the European Union. Euro zone business confidence declined in April, it was reported Monday, in the latest dour economic data coming out of the EU. The European Central Bank holds its monthly meeting on Thursday, with the market place anxiously awaiting its outcome. Many market watchers think the ECB will lower interest rates at Thursday’s gathering. The Federal Reserve on Wednesday will announce its latest monetary policy actions in a busy week of world economic data. U.S. economic data due for release Monday includes personal income and outlays, the Chicago Fed Midwest manufacturing index, pending home sales, and the Texas manufacturing outlook survey.–Jim

the ECB will lower interest rates at Thursday’s gathering.

likely to be serious corn-planting delays in the Corn Belt.

Zacks: Is +2.5% GDP Good?

Is +2.5% GDP Good?

The economy has averaged around 2% growth since the end of the Great Recession. So you would think there would be more applause for the +2.5% reading for Q1 on Friday.

What gives?

First, expectations called for +3.1%. Second, last quarter was +0.4%. Average that out with this reading = same old +2% pace. Third, and most importantly, Q2 economic indicators are pointing lower. That could mean a pretty meager result on the way.

Interestingly, investors saw the early dip Friday as another buying opportunity. Likely they want to reserve judgment for the big economic reports on tap for this week. The fireworks start Wednesday with ADP Employment and ISM Mfg. Then Friday brings a grand finale with Government Employment and ISM Services.

The next move for the market relies on the quality of these reports. Let’s trade accordingly.

DividendRank Energy Toplists

At sister site Dividend Channel, we screen through our coverage universe of dividend paying stocks each week, and we look at a variety of data — dividend yield, book value, quarterly earnings — and compare it to the stock’s trading data to come up with certain calculations about profitability and about the stock’s valuation (whether we think it looks ”cheap” or ”expensive”).

History has shown that the bulk of the stock market’s returns are delivered by dividends, and so we pay special attention to dividend history. And of course, only consistently profitable companies can afford to keep paying dividends, so profitability is of critical importance. Dividend investors should be most interested in researching the strongest most profitable companies, that also happen to be trading at an attractive valuation — maybe there is a company-specific reason causing the stock to be ”cheap” or maybe the entire sector is taking a hit, but whatever the reason, we think there is great value in ranking the Energy Stock Channel coverage universe weekly using our proprietary DividendRank formula, and sharing the list of the week’s top ranked energy stocks with our subscribers.

These are the energy stocks our DividendRank system has identified as the top most ”interesting” in the Energy, and Utilities categories … this is meant purely as a research tool to generate ideas that merit further research.

This Week’s Top 20 ETFs
Ranked By Weighted Average Broker Rating of Underlying ComponentsEach week, ETF Channel forms this rank by first looking at the analyst opinions from the major brokerage houses (which are tallied and averaged) for each individual component of each ETF. Then, for each ETF, those average broker ratings are considered as a weighted average according to the weighting of each of the ETF’s components — this gives the average broker rating for the entire ETF based upon its holdings. The ETF coverage universe is then ranked to give us the weekly top five ETFs by weighted average broker rating of underlying components. These rankings are meant as a tool for investors to generate ideas for further research.

From there, our team painstakingly reviews each of the top rated stocks on an individual basis with regard to fundamentals and technicals.

DividendRank Metals Toplist

At sister site Dividend Channel, we screen through our coverage universe of dividend paying stocks each week, and we look at a variety of data — dividend yield, book value, quarterly earnings — and compare it to the stock’s trading data to come up with certain calculations about profitability and about the stock’s valuation (whether we think it looks ”cheap” or ”expensive”).

History has shown that the bulk of the stock market’s returns are delivered by dividends, and so we pay special attention to dividend history. And of course, only consistently profitable companies can afford to keep paying dividends, so profitability is of critical importance. Dividend investors should be most interested in researching the strongest most profitable companies, that also happen to be trading at an attractive valuation — maybe there is a company-specific reason causing the stock to be ”cheap” or maybe the entire sector is taking a hit, but whatever the reason, we think there is great value in ranking the Metals Channel coverage universe weekly using our proprietary DividendRank formula, and sharing the list of the week’s top ranked metals stocks with our subscribers.

These are the metals stocks our DividendRank system has identified as the top most ”interesting” in the Metals and Mining category … this is meant purely as a research tool to generate ideas that merit further research.

 

SPONSORED AREAStrategic Risk Management System

A management service designed to manage the risk of the stock market on a daily basis. The service is designed to profit from both rising and falling markets via the use of easy-to-trade ETFs.

We want to be fully invested in stock market when equities are rising and we want to be either short the market or in cash when equities are falling.
