For every buyer, there’s a seller; for every winner, a loser.

At least, that’s how it usually goes. Yet that hasn’t borne out in the U.S. stock and bond markets. The S&P 500 index is near a record high after gaining about 14 percent since the end of October. Meanwhile global bonds have rallied for five straight months, the longest stretch to start a year since 2003. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield, at 2.20 percent, is close to its 2017 low.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Mastercard Incorporated(MA)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Zeiler]

    Ethereum has plenty of real-world catalysts driving it already:

    It’s become the foundation of the booming ICO phenomenon, through which cryptocurrency-based startups have raised millions of dollars in a matter of minutes. Most new tokens are either based on Ethereum and/or require users to buy the cryptocurrency with Ethereum. It’s Turing complete, which means the Ethereum network can function as a giant, global computer. That’s what makes Ethereum an ideal platform for applications like smart contracts. And it’s enabled the creation of a new kind of app, “Dapps,” or distributed applications that run on the network. Businesses are adopting it. The 150-plus companies in the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance include some of the world’s biggest and most prestigious corporations, such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), Mastercard Inc. (NYSE: MA), and Deloitte.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc. (The)(IPG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate INTERPUBLIC GROUP OF COS as a Buy with a ratings score of A. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. 

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The Interpublic Group of Companies Inc. (NYSE: IPG) dropped about 2.3% Thursday to post a new 52-week low of $20.94 after closing Wednesday at $21.44. The 52-week high is $25.71. Volume reached nearly 13 million shares traded, nearly 3 times the daily average of around 3.8 million. The company had no specific news, but Tuesday’s weak earnings report continues to weigh on the share price.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 59.42% to $280.90 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, INTERPUBLIC GROUP OF COS has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 8.14%.

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.94, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.96 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
