Shares of cruise line stocks plunged in trading on Tuesday as the market continues to grapple with economic uncertainty. Industry giant Carnival (NYSE: CCL) (NYSE: CUK) was down as much as 11.3% in trading today, Royal Caribbean Cruises (NYSE: RCL) fell 10%, and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NYSE: NCLH) dropped 11.8%. The news continues to be murky at best with companies warning of slowing sales in a variety of sectors, consumers experiencing inflation, and the Federal Reserve continuing to indicate that it will keep raising interest rates.
AT&T (NYSE: T) and Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) are generally regarded as conservative income investments rather than high-growth plays. AT&T still pays a forward dividend yield of 5.4% following its spin-off of Warner Bros. Discovery (NASDAQ: WBD), and Cisco pays a forward yield of 3.5%. Should investors buy either of these blue chip tech stocks as defensive plays against inflation, rising interest rates, and other macro headwinds?
The Permian Basin is preparing to unleash a torrent of gas to meet exploding LNG demand, and the pipeline industry could benefit in a big way
Despite brief periods of respite, the markets have mostly trended south in 2022, with the NASDAQ’s 28% year-to-date loss the most acute of all the main indexes. So, where to look for the next investing opportunity in such a difficult environment? One way is to follow in the footsteps of the corporate insiders. If those in the know are picking up shares of the companies they manage, it indicates they believe they might be undervalued and poised to push higher. To keep the field level, the Federal
While some analysts have expressed concerns over how weakness in the tech sector could impact the semiconductor maker, one analyst believes there may yet be a silver lining. Demand for data centers has remained resilient, and could be a life raft for chip companies like Nvidia (ticker: NVDA ) that are looking to shore up their bottom lines, wrote Citi analyst Atif Malik in a research note. “We hear data center still remains an area of relative strength within semis, as consumer semis PCs and smartphone-related demand continues to come down,” he wrote.
It must be getting increasingly difficult for investors in Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) to hold their nerve. The hydrogen stock sank Tuesday morning and was down by 8.9% as of 1 p.m. ET. With that drop, Plug Power stock has now lost almost 30% of its value in just the month of May.
Energy Transfer (NYSE: ET) is already one of the most diversified midstream companies in the country. The master limited partnership (MLP) has assets up and down the oil and natural gas value chain, providing a full range of services from the wellhead to the water.

Fitz-Gerald Group Principal Keith Fitz-Gerald sits down with Yahoo Finance Live to discuss the ongoing tech sell-off, how it may affect Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter, the ripple effect surrounding Snap, and similarities to the dot-com bubble.
In periods of rising inflation and slowing economic growth, investors often turn to the stability and reliability of dividend stocks to see them through the tough times -- and with good reason. The asset managers at Hartford Funds studied the performance of the benchmark S&P 500 going all the way back to 1930, looking at stocks that pay dividends and those that don't, and found over that near-100-year period, dividend-paying stocks contributed 41% to the index's total return. It also includes the so-called "lost decade" of the 2000s, where the dot-com bubble, 9/11, and the financial markets collapse all conspired to generate negative returns for the S&P 500, but dividend stocks still gained 1.8%.
Data analytics company Palantir Technologies (NYSE: PLTR) has been one of the most interesting stocks on Wall Street since it went public due to its mysterious nature, ties to the U.S government, and eccentric CEO Alex Karp. Stock-based compensation is common practice for technology companies like Palantir, and there's often a surge of it when these companies first go public. Palantir has given employees more than $700 million in stock over the past year alone.
Due to the decline in stocks over the last few months, investing has become a painful exercise, particularly for tech investors. If you only have an amount such as $3,000 to invest, companies with supercharged growth such as Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) and Upstart (NASDAQ: UPST) could serve you well.
Electric vehicle and clean energy company Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has been one of Wall Street's biggest winners over the past couple of years. Such a big decline seems like an obvious "buy-the-dip" opportunity, but investors should consider the following before doing so. It pays for the growth, dividends, and share repurchases that investors love.
As the U.S. Federal Reserve raises interest rates and tightens monetary policy to try and fight inflation, high growth but richly valued tech stocks have fallen out of favor among investors. Three that look like especially good buys right now are DigitalOcean (NYSE: DOCN), Unity Software (NYSE: U), and Applied Materials (NASDAQ: AMAT). Let's find out a bit more about these three apparently unloved tech stocks.
Lingering concerns about a potential big-ticket buy and an analyst price-target cut combined for a bad day on the market for The House of Mouse.
Two months ago, computer memory maker Micron (NASDAQ: MU) reported its financial results for fiscal Q2 2022, and the news was incredible -- sales were up 25% year over year, and net profits more than tripled. Three weeks ago, semiconductors specialist Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) reported some earnings of its own, and again the news was great -- sales up 71% and profits rising 42%. Heading into earnings day, Nvidia stock is down 5.3% at 11:10 a.m. ET Tuesday, and investor worry is beginning to bleed over into other tech stocks.
Our call of the day comes from Jefferies analysts, who round up some small to medium-size stocks that have been hit unreservedly hard in this market rout.
Last week, the S&P 500 finished Friday’s session with a rally that gave the index a small gain of 0.15% for the day. It was a good thing, too, since the index flirted with a net-20% loss during the session. That’s bear market territory, the kind of market move that will further spook investors after a springtime of headwinds. Inflation is running at 40-year high levels, Q1 showed a net economic contraction, Russia’s war on Ukraine promises to further damage supplies and prices in the food, cooki
