    Why The FANG Stocks' Dominance May Not Be So Bad For The Market

    The FANG stocks have become some of the stock market's most dominant stocks, disproportionately powering its gains, as well as its losses. (Apple is often added, making the group the FAANG stocks), sometimes a bad week for the group of stocks can lead the market down. For instance, Facebook led a steep decline in the FAANG stocks in March, after its data misuse scandal came to light on Sunday, March 18.

    Here’s why stock investors should hope that corporate earnings growth shrinks

    Many investors find it surprising that, in the wake of the fastest growth rate in corporate profits in many years, the U.S. stock market is struggling. Over the past nine decades, the stock market on average has hardly produced any gain in calendar quarters in which year-over-year earnings growth is as strong as it is currently. GAAP earnings per share for the S&P 500 (^GSPC) are projected to be 36.7% higher than the comparable quarter of a year ago, according to Standard & Poor’s. That compares to an average of just 5.9% average annual growth since the late 1980s.

    Investors find little appetite for consumer staples

    The sector, which includes suppliers of so-called recession-proof items ranging from toilet paper and toothpaste to canned soup and cookies, has fallen 13 percent in 2018, on track for its first annual decline since 2008, while the S&P 500 (.SPX) is up 1.7 percent year-to-date. Investors have been turning away from staples companies because they are grappling with changing consumer preferences, fierce competition and other obstacles to raising prices even as their costs swell. On top of this, the sector - long viewed as a defensive play partly because of its high dividends and predictable growth rate - faces tough competition from fixed income investments while U.S. Treasury yields are rising, and from other equities as most industry groups are generating faster earnings growth.

    Why mutual fund managers on a hot streak may be too good for your money

    Instead, the hot hands of even the best investors must eventually cool because their success attracts too much money and eventually overwhelms their market-beating abilities. The key to finding a market-beating investment adviser, therefore, is to find someone after they’ve played their hot hand but before they’ve attracted too much money. Bill Miller, former manager of the Legg Mason Value Trust (LMVTX) , (now ClearBridge Value Trust) is the investment arena’s poster child of an adviser whose incredibly hot hand suddenly became as cold as ice.

    S&P 500 companies return $1 trillion to shareholders in tax-cut surge

    S&P 500 companies have returned a record $1 trillion to shareholders over the past year, helped by a recent surge in dividends and stock buybacks following sweeping corporate tax cuts introduced by Republicans, a report on Friday showed. In the 12 months through March, S&P 500 companies paid out $428 billion in dividends and bought up $573 billion of their own shares, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices analyst Howard Silverblatt. Earnings per share of S&P 500 companies surged 26 percent in the March quarter, boosted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by Republican lawmakers in December.
