The Chinese stock market roller coaster looks to be coming back in ... - CNBC

The roller coaster that is the Chinese stock market seems to be back in full force.

Stocks in Shanghai had been in a period of relative calm so far this year, but a relatively precipitous drop of 2.7 percent this month has refocused attention on the markets.

This year, investors have been buoyed by stronger economic data — first quarter GDP growth came in at 6.9 percent, which was better than expected. Specific sectors like property and construction also got a boost after Beijing announced the creation of a new special economic zone, dubbed Xiongan New Area, in Hebei province. But, as the saying goes, what goes up must come down.

Finally, with investors on the lookout for high-quality stocks that could be lifted by the president's policies, Cramer turned to one unusual energy play that could be one of the biggest winners.

By acquiring Spectra Energy, Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge became the largest energy infrastructure company in North America. That positioned it to gain from U.S. projects, being that it operates the longest crude oil and gas liquids transportation system in the world.

"Yep, the president may have run on an America First platform, and he's suddenly started to get very tough on trade with Canada, but that doesn't change the fact that right now, one of my favorite Trump stocks is a Canadian company," the "Mad Money" host said.

More Chinese firms are saying goodbye to Singapore's stock market - CNBC

Among departures from the Singapore Exchange (SGX) over the past year, a number of companies stood out for these common characteristics: they come from China and were among mainland firms that contributed to the flurry of initial public offerings in the city state about a decade ago.

Chinese companies listed in Singapore, known as S-chips, led the local IPO market from 2005 to 2007 before such listings came to a halt in mid-2012. In recent months, those firms have left the SGX in greater numbers voluntarily or after failing to meet listing requirements, according to exchange filings compiled by CNBC.

CNBC found that six of the 10 firms that delisted from the exchange this year are Chinese firms, compared to eight who did so the whole of last year.

Stock Market News for April 28, 2017 - Yahoo Finance

 

The Nasdaq finished at a record high on Thursday after technology shares experienced gains even as the Dow and the S&P 500 also moved higher. Meanwhile, a notable fall in energy shares and lack of details in President Donald Trump’s tax plan unveiled on Wednesday pared some gains for the broader market.

For a look at the issues currently facing the markets, make sure to read today’s Ahead of Wall Street article.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) gained 6.24 points to close at 20,981.33. The S&P 500 rose 0.1% to close at 2,388.77. The tech-laden Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.4% to a record close of 6,048.94 after reaching to an intraday high of 6,050.46 . The fear-gauge CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) declined 3.8% to 10.44.

3 stock market questions for every investor at Trump's 100-day mark - CNBC

President Trump is the one who said the stock market is a good way to judge his success. He's off to a good start. The major averages are up nicely since the November election and in the first 100 days of his administration.

Now the decision for investors is straightforward: Do you lock in gains now or do you let them ride? Only you — or yourself in conjunction with a financial advisor — can answer that because it's really based on your own personal situation: your risk tolerance, time horizon and financial goals. But for those who feel it's time to be decisive, here are the pros and cons to consider over the weekend. Saturday is the 100-day mark for the Trump administration.

GOLDMAN SACHS: This negative stock market signal is 'greatly exaggerated' - Business Insider

tradersTraders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the start of trading August 6, 2014. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson

One popular argument against the US stock market is that its gains are being driven by just a handful of large companies. The logic goes that strength in those shares can mask broader weakness.

While Goldman Sachs doesn't dispute that reasoning, they argue that the degree of large-cap dominance right now is totally normal by historical standards.

The measure in question, known as breadth, reflects the portion of an index's components contributing to the gauge's overall move. High breadth means there's a high degree of participation, which is a bullish indicator in an up-market and considered bearish as an index falls. Low breadth is viewed as a negative signal as a gauge rises, which the S&P 500 has done this year.

Right now, the 10 largest firms in the...

Trump's first 100-day stock market performance is better than most, but the real test is ahead - CNBC

But the key to his next 100 days could depend on his ability to work with Congress and show some proof that his policies will ultimately materialize into law — most importantly tax reform.

"I think the equity market no doubt is pricing in hope. ... If we fast-forward to the end of the year, and nothing was done on taxes, I think this market gives up half of what we've gained," said Leo Grohowski, CIO at BNY Mellon Wealth Management. Grohowski said his forecast is not scientific, but he would expect a chunk of the market gains since Election Day to start to evaporate.

"I don't think this market is up entirely on fluff, but I do think that the economy that this administration inherited is due in large part to the aggressive stimulus from monetary policy. I think it was on a better footing, and that's responsible for some of the gains we're seeing," he said. "Tax reform, regulatory...

Cloudera finishes up 20% in stock market debut - TechCrunch

After pricing its IPO at $15 per share, Cloudera, the enterprise big data company, closed the day up more than 20 percent, at $18.09. This also is above the range of $12 to $14 for which Cloudera was preparing.

While the surging stock price is great for new investors, the outcome is still a significant disappointment for some employees of the company because their equity compensation has gone down in value if they joined the team after the last private round. Cloudera’s market cap is now about $2.3 billion, significantly less than the $4.1 billion valuation Intel gave in 2014. This increasingly common phenomenon is now nicknamed a “down-round IPO.”

In an interview with TechCrunch, CEO Tom Riley insisted that this was not a problem for the company because of the “growth prospects ahead of us.” If it performs well in the stock market, it could ultimately achieve the $4 billion-plus...

Stock market ends session lower, but Dow books best week of 2017 - MarketWatch

U.S. stocks finished lower Friday as investors traded cautiously ahead of the weekend marking President Donald Trump’s 100th day in office, and as a lack of details in the president’s much-heralded tax plan gave investors pause. However, all three major equity benchmarks closed out April firmly in positive territory.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.19%  dropped 40.82 points, or 0.2%, to close at 20,940.51. The blue-chip gauge posted a weekly climb of 1.9% and rose 1.3% for the month.

This “feels like a breather after a hell of a rally this week,” said Ian Winer, head of equities at Wedbush Securities.

The S&P 500 index SPX, -0.19%  fell 4.57 points, or 0.2%, to finish at 2,384.20. The large-cap index gained 1.5% this week, its best weekly stretch since the period ended Feb. 17, and added 0.9% in April.

Wall Street to Millennials: Don't fear the stock market - USA TODAY

Chapter 1: Millennials need the stock market and it also needs them

This generation must invest to reach long-term goals, and their cash could benefit the market

Millennials, the children of the stock-loving Baby Boomers who helped fuel the best-ever bull market in the 1990s, haven't yet developed a good working relationship with the market like mom and dad did.

Now mostly in their 20s and early 30s, the people making up the nation's largest generation have yet to embrace the concept of stock investing to meet long-term goals like funding retirement, surveys show. Only one in three Millennials say they invest in stocks, a Bankrate.com survey has found. Six in ten have less than $10,000 saved for their post-working years, according to Ramsey Solutions’ 2016 Retirement in America Survey.

Stock market takes Trump tax plan in stride - Washington Post

The announcement of the Trump tax plan Wednesday afternoon had little effect on a stock market that earlier this week saw the tech-heavy Nasdaq break 6,000 for the first time and the Dow Jones industrial average flirt with 21,000.

Some of Trump’s tax plan had been mostly baked into the rising stock market, as was Wall Street’s ease over the first round of French presidential election, which indicated the country will likely elect a leader that will keep France in the European Union.

Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer at Cornerstone Financial Partners, said the market is also riding on unexpectedly strong earnings reports from U.S. companies as it takes in the politics at home and in France.

“The market saw the Trump plan and was interested in it, but until the market gets specific results, I don’t think it is going to act on it,” said Zaccarelli. “At the end of the day, until...

Stock Market Today - Investor's Business Daily

XLoading the player...Autoplay: On | OffFutures for the Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 index and Nasdaq 100 were little changed vs. fair value early Thursday after a tepid reaction to President Trump's tax plan on Wednesday.

The Dow industrials, S&P 500 and Nasdaq composite turned slim intraday gains into whisper-thin losses. But that followed strong gains over the prior five sessions. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin talked up tax cuts last Thursday, with Trump announcing the next day that a "massive tax cut" plan would be released this week. Then stocks jumped on positive reaction to the French election.

Over the last five sessions, 32 of IBD's 197 industry groups have risen 5% or more. Those big winners include machinery, specialty steel, mining, banks, transportation, chip equipment and solar groups, among others. The broad-based strength is encouraging.

Money in Your Pocket: Cashing in on the stock market - WSYR

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - This week, for the first time ever, the NASDAQ Composite went over 6,000.

 It’s not just this index, but the whole stock market is on a tear.

 If you bought into the NASDAQ a year ago, you’d get a 22% return on your money.

 The whole stock market in general is up 16%.

 It’s clear, over the past 5 years, the tech heavy NASDAQ  has done well.

 The Amazons, Googles and Apples have been excelling lately.

 With all the political and economic uncertainty, terrorism, taxes, the stock market as a whole has been performing well. 

 If you’ve been on the sidelines, you’ve missed out on some great gains.

A popular stock market bear case is flawed - Business Insider - Business Insider

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York City, U.S., October 24, 2016. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid Traders work on the floor of the NYSEThomson Reuters

As stock bears tell it, overconfidence can be the death knell of a market rally.

While that logic has historically held merit, there are some holes in one of their favorite pieces of supporting data.

In recent months, they've cited the diminishing number of shares being shorted in the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which tracks the benchmark index. After all, it's at the lowest since May 2007, a period that directly preceded a bear market that saw the S&P 500 drop 55%, according to data compiled by financial analytics firm S3 Partners.

But they're looking at those shorted shares the wrong way, says Ihor Dusaniwsky, the head of research at S3. He argues that they should instead be looking at the dollar value of short positions.

"Using shares shorted as a metric for short interest or bearish sentiment is a misapplication of statistical...

Flat Lead Tipped For Thai Stock Market - Nasdaq

Shutterstock photo

(RTTNews.com) - The Thai stock market headed south again on Thursday, one session after it had ended the two-day slide in which it had fallen almost 8 points or 0.5 percent. The Stock Exchange of Thailand remains just above the 1,565-point plateau and it is expected to see another narrow trading range again on Friday.

The global forecast for the Asian markets is roughly flat, with positive earnings news capped by a fall in oil prices and expected profit taking. The European markets were down and the U.S. markets were barely higher - and the Asian markets figure to split the difference.

The SET finished barely lower on Thursday as losses from the financial shares were offset by support from the energy producers.

Among the actives, Advanced Info shed 0.28 percent, while Airport of Thailand dropped 1.81 percent, Banpu climbed 1.04 percent, Bangkok Bank lost 0.28...
