(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. President Donald Trump came to Davos espousing his economic and trade policies as models for the world, sending some warm and some mixed messages to European nations that have endured his tariff threats on everything from cars to Camembert for almost three years.Before arriving in the Swiss resort Tuesday, Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron had declared a temporary truce in their dispute over a French tax on foreign tech companies that drew threats of tariffs from Washington. Just last week, French officials were all but certain that the levies were imminent.Then, in his remarks kicking off the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in the Alps, Trump said he looked forward to “negotiating a tremendous new deal with the United Kingdom. They have a wonderful new prime minister and wants very much to make a deal.”Later, he acknowledged that European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is known as a “very tough negotiator, which is bad news for us, because we’re going to talk about a big trade deal.” A U.S.-European Union deal is “something we all want to be able to make,” Trump said, and there won’t be any problem requiring auto tariffs “if they’re fair.”For a president who’s railed against the gaping trade surpluses that European nations enjoy with the U.S., his was an uncommonly peaceful visit to a conclave of doubters about American exceptionalism.Standing on a stage of business and government leaders, Trump recited a litany of domestic accomplishments, from record-low minority unemployment in the U.S. to the growth in jobs for millennials. Among the international achievements mentioned was phase one of a trade deal signed with China last week.That agreement cools tensions between the world’s two largest economies, but its timing has revived concern from Berlin to Brussels that he’ll turn its sights next the European Union. Trump’s prepared remarks contained no such threats, ending on his optimism that Europe’s “teeming centers of commerce and culture” would rise again, including France’s fire-ravaged Notre Dame cathedral.“The great bells will once again ring out for all to hear, giving glory to God and filling millions with wonder and awe,” he said.In the backdrop of Trump’s cordial appearance was the stark reality that starting trade negotiations is easy to discuss and harder to actually do.Talks with the EU have stalled since 2018, as the European Commission leadership changed hands and the U.S. argued unsuccessfully for more access to agriculture markets. Relations started to sour that year, when the Trump administration invoked national-security considerations to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe, which retaliated with levies on iconic American brands such as Harley-Davidson Inc. motorcycles and Levi Strauss & Co. jeans.Given Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s short timetable, only a limited U.S. agreement with the U.K. is likely this year. The truce with France merely puts the digital-tax negotiations on an unclear, lengthly timetable at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.Still, the past two days have represented a partial retreat from his favorite negotiating tactic: a threat of tariffs.Details of his latest cease fire -- with Macron -- remain murky. Trump thanked the French leader when asked about it in Davos, but did not reveal the specifics of what they agreed to. “We had a very good conversation, it worked out very well, the U.S. is very happy with the result and we appreciate very much what President Macron did,” Trump said.Trump said his meeting with von der Leyen would be largely about trade. For her part, von der Leyen stressed the joint history of the countries and added only: “We have issues to discuss and we will negotiate.”Trump met with the Swiss president, and extolled the virtues of trade, before thanking Macron. Trump’s speech also hailed America’s surging oil and gas production, and called on Europe to wean itself from “unfriendly” suppliers, likely a veiled rebuke of Russia.“With an abundance of American natural gas now available, our European allies no longer have to be vulnerable to unfriendly energy suppliers either. We urge our friends in Europe to use America’s vast supply and achieve true energy security,” he said in his speech.As the auto-tariff threat simmers, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is among the high-profile attendees at Davos. She and Trump are not scheduled to meet.So when the day neared an end, Trump demonstrated again that he’ll play hardball, even with allies.Speaking to reporters, he said he’s confident he can reach a trade deal with the EU but will strongly consider imposing tariffs on European cars without an agreement. “If we’re unable to make a deal we will have to do something because we’ve been treated very badly as a country for many many years on trade,” Trump said.(Adds existing tariffs in 10th paragraph.)\--With assistance from Shawn Donnan.To contact the reporter on this story: Josh Wingrove in Washington at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Margaret Collins at email@example.com, ;Alex Wayne at firstname.lastname@example.org, Brendan Murray, Ana MonteiroFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. Presidents Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump agreed to a truce in their dispute over digital taxes that will mean neither France nor the U.S. will impose punitive tariffs this year.Macron said on Monday he had a “great discussion” with Trump on the issue, without giving details.“We will work together on a good agreement to avoid tariff escalation,” he said on Twitter.“Excellent!” Trump said in a reply to Macron’s post, without providing additional information. Trump is en route to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum.A White House readout of the call was notably more muted, saying only that the “two leaders agreed it is important to complete successful negotiations on the digital services tax” and “discussed other bilateral issues.” And neither a White House spokesman nor officials with the U.S. Trade Representative’s office would confirm that the U.S. president had called off his announced tariffs.Still, the possible respite may defuse transatlantic tensions that had been building between Washington and Brussels along another potential trade war front. Last week, Trump signed a cease-fire with China in phase one of a broader deal aimed at balancing trade between the world’s two largest economies.The European Union is an even bigger U.S. trading partner than China and supply chains between the two economies, particularly in automotive and financial services industries, are intertwined in ways that would make a tit-for-tat tariff dispute even more harmful to the world economy.Macron’s government still hopes to find a solution that fits within discussions at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s work on the issue, according to a French official who asked not to be identified in line with government rules.European finance ministers meeting in Brussels Tuesday will discuss progress of the OECD talks. While the OECD is still working on its proposal for taxing tech companies around the world, France pushed ahead with its own levy last year that hit U.S. internet giants like Google, Apple Inc. and Amazon.com Inc.“We now have an agreement between the two presidents to avoid any tariff escalation and avoid any trade war,” French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire told reporters in Brussels before the meeting. “It’s remains a difficult negotiation -- with digital tax, the devil is in the details and we need to resolve the details.”Paris and Washington have discussed the possibility of France suspending the collection of the digital tax payments due in April as long as the U.S. refrains from imposing new tariffs, French officials said. But that wouldn’t constitute a withdrawal of the levy, they added. For its part, the French government denies its national tax is discriminatory and warned that the EU would retaliate if the U.S. imposed additional levies.The U.S. has said that the French tax discriminates against American technology companies, citing Section 301 of a 1974 American law that Trump has thus far reserved to justify tariffs against China. That opened the door to the U.S.’s threat to hit $2.4 billion of French goods with tariffs in retaliation.Among the French products targeted with duties of as much as 100% were luxury items like wine, cheese and makeup. One American wine merchant called it the biggest threat to the industry since Prohibition a century ago.For its part, the French government had warned that the EU would retaliate if the U.S. imposed additional tariffs.The dispute was another headache for European trade officials scrambling to expand their policy arsenal as the U.S. takes aim at a rules-based system for global trade that Trump argues is outdated and tilted against America. It also coincided with a change in leadership at the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm.EU trade commissioner Phil Hogan visited Washington last week for the first time in the job, partly to plead for talks rather than tariffs in disagreements like the French digital tax. At stake, he said, was transatlantic trade in goods and services valued at more than $3 billion a day.“Sounds like a fairly healthy relationship to me,” Hogan said Thursday in the U.S. capital. “So why put tariffs on these EU products to make them more expensive for your people?”The truce follows weeks of discussions between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Le Maire, who were scheduled to meet Wednesday in Davos, Switzerland, the alpine resort town where government officials and business leaders gather during the winter to discuss whatever is ailing the global economy.The dispute has ramifications outside France as other countries try to come up with ways to generate revenue from the digital economy. Mnuchin told the Wall Street Journal that the U.K. and Italy will face American tariffs if they proceed with similar levies on foreign tech firms.U.S. and EU trade relations started to sour in 2018 when the Trump administration invoked national-security considerations to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe. As a U.S. military ally, the EU was infuriated and promptly retaliated with levies on iconic American brands such as Harley-Davidson Inc. motorcycles and Levi Strauss & Co. jeans.A subsequent U.S. threat to wreak significantly more economic damage by targeting the European auto industry with duties on the same security grounds led to a hastily agreed truce and a pledge by both sides to work toward reducing industrial tariffs across the board.Since then, the Trump administration has refused to start the tariff-cutting negotiations unless Europe includes agriculture in them. Also, it imposed levies on EU products in retaliation over government aid to Airbus SE that was deemed illegal by the World Trade Organization, and disabled the WTO’s appellate body,The EU, meanwhile, is pressing ahead with a plan for tariffs against the U.S. in a parallel WTO case over unlawful subsidies to Boeing Co.Trump, scheduled to speak Tuesday in Davos at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting, on Sunday reiterated his frustration with Europe as a trading partner.“Europe has had tremendous barriers to us doing business with them. All those barriers are coming down. They have to come down,” he told a conference of farmers in Austin, Texas. “If they don’t come down, we’re going to have to do things that are very bad for them.”He added, “Europe was, in many ways, more difficult -- and is more difficult -- than China.”(Updates with possible French concession in the 11th paragraph)\--With assistance from Jonathan Stearns, Justin Sink and Chelsea Mes.To contact the reporters on this story: Ania Nussbaum in Paris at email@example.com;William Horobin in Paris at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Ben Sills at email@example.com, Brendan Murray, Wendy BenjaminsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
While General Motors (GM) plans to revive Hummer brand as an electric pickup, Ford's (F) China sales dip for the third straight year in 2019.
(Bloomberg) -- Harley-Davidson Inc. plans to grant long-term shareholders the power to directly nominate board members, a move that could boost investors’ influence at the slumping U.S. motorcycle maker.So-called proxy access will give an investor, or a group of up to 20 shareholders, owning at least 3% of Harley’s stock for at least three years the right to name as many as a fifth of nominated directors, the company said in a filing Wednesday. The measure still has to be approved at its annual meeting.Harley would follow a long list of U.S. companies including General Motors Co., FedEx Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. that have empowered investors in this way. The change reflects boards’ willingness to engage with investors who are more long term-oriented than increasingly powerful activists. Getting a slate of directors on the ballot without a company’s cooperation can otherwise be expensive.Read more: After 70-Year Fight, This Investor Request Is Met Left and RightHarley shares, which have plummeted almost 40% in the past three years, dipped 0.3% as of 1 p.m. in New York.The iconic manufacturer is struggling to stoke demand in its home market, where sales have dropped the last 11 quarters.

The key question facing U.S. stocks at the moment is: how much is left? The bull market almost certainly will enter its twelfth year in March (though by some measures, it ended, however briefly, in December 2018). The S&P 500 rose 29% in 2019 alone; the NASDAQ Composite performed even better. Equities are at all-time highs, and valuation multiples seem much the same.Source: Shutterstock Friday's big stock charts focus on three stocks for which the key question is similar to that of the market as a whole. These aren't necessarily stocks that have led, or in two cases even joined, the broader rally. But all three closed 2019 on a high note and in an uptrend. * 10 2019 Winners That Will Be 2020 Losers As a result, for these names investors can wonder how much of a rally remains. In all three cases, near-term trading could set the tone for the remainder of 2020. And in all three cases, these big stock charts suggest at least some reason for caution.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Procter & Gamble (PG)Source: Provided by Finviz Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) was one of the most impressive stocks of 2019. The 36% rise in PG stock perhaps doesn't seem that spectacular relative to the 29% increase in the S&P 500 or even the 22% gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, of which PG is a component. But in context, the move is close to extraordinary.After all, PG is a mega-cap and defensive name. Both characteristics suggest the stock should underperform in a bull market. CPG (consumer packaged goods) stocks as a whole posted smaller returns than the market, yet P&G stock outperformed pretty much every peer. At the same time, the stock managed to reverse a long-stagnant trend: shares gained less than 1% total in the previous four years.With all that backward-looking good news, however, the first of Friday's stock charts suggests a more muted view looking forward: * PG stock simply has stalled out. Resistance held at $125 in September and October, while a move above those levels last month quickly faded. Shares now are challenging the support line of the multi-month uptrend, and the 50-day moving average after falling through the 20DMA. This looks like a stock ready to roll over, with the next level of support at $120 followed by the 200-day around $115. * Fundamentally, there's a case for a modest decline as well. After a decade marked by cost-cutting, reorganization, and divestitures, P&G found the recipe for growth in fiscal 2019 (ending June). But there's simply not much left in the way of catalysts. This now is a company likely to post mid-single-digit net profit growth whose stock trades at 25x the FY20 consensus earnings per share estimate. That's a potentially dicey combination, particularly given that historically PG received at most a P/E multiple in the low 20s. * With third quarter earnings due toward the end of this month, there is a potential downside catalyst if results disappoint. Rival Unilever (NYSE:UL,NYSE:UN) delivered a warning on demand in key regions last month. P&G's own second quarter report in late October was not well-received. * It's possible the market, as it has in recent years, keeps bidding up names it views as quality. But there's a strong case that at the least, the performance of PG stock this year will be much less impressive than it was in 2019. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA)Source: Provided by Finviz Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) seems to have found its footing. Shares have bounced about 20% since hitting a six-year low in late August. A cheap valuation, takeover speculation and better results across the sector have contributed.The question looking to 2020 is if the uptrend can hold. Both the second of our big stock charts and fundamental analysis suggest that it should: * The technical picture still looks reasonably solid after the rally over the past two weeks. WBA stock saw a "golden cross" in November, as the 50DMA crossed above the 200DMA. That pattern didn't have much of an immediate effect, as shares kept falling. But with a bottom seemingly in, and WBA riding the 50-day in recent sessions, the longer-term uptrend seems confirmed at the moment. * Fundamentally, WBA is one of the Dow Jones' cheapest stocks, at less than 10x forward earnings. Rivals Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD) and CVS Health (NYSE:CVS) have shown signs of life after their recent earnings reports, with leveraged RAD stock in particular soaring. Walgreens earnings on Wednesday look like a potential catalyst. * That earnings report, however, presents a risk on both fronts. A sell-off next week would breach the uptrend established since late August. Shares probably would need to rely on the 200DMA for support. And with rivals doing better, a weak report might suggest that Walgreens has execution issues in addition to the margin and sales problems that have pressured the industry in recent years. * I wrote this week that Walgreens was one of the 2019's losers that likely would be a winner in 2020. I still believe that will be the case. But for that to happen, Walgreens earnings next week need to set a bullish tone. Harley-Davidson (HOG)Source: Provided by Finviz Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG) managed to put in a bottom in late August. An eight-year low proved the nadir of an inverse head-and-shoulders pattern, and a gap up after third quarter earnings allowed the stock to re-test resistance above $40.Since that test failed, however, HOG stock has struggled. And the third of Friday's big stock charts suggests more downside ahead: * Shares have exited out of an uptrend established from August lows (which actually is a slightly narrowing ascending wedge). They've breached the 50-day moving average as well after a golden cross formed in early November. The 200-day moving average at $36 is the next key level. Below $36, support looks limited, and there's a technical argument for a potentially severe sell-off. * Click to Enlarge Source: Provided by Finviz Looking to the monthly chart, the broader trend becomes apparent. And the rally of late looks like an almost parabolic move against that primary trend -- a move that usually reverses. For now, the gains in recent months look more like a "dead cat bounce" than a sustainable reversal. * Fundamentally, HOG stock looks worrisome as well. Shares are cheap at less than 11x next year's consensus EPS estimate. Progress on the trade war front should help the company. But profits are heading in the wrong direction, and rival Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII) is taking share with its Indian Motorcycles nameplate. Demographics hardly seem to favor Harley-Davidson, either. Both the fundamentals and the third of our big stock charts make HOG stock look more like a value trap than a value play. That in turn suggests investors should look elsewhere for returns in 2020.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

When writing this article, I was looking for an ideal list of dividend-paying stocks that consistently raise their dividends each year. In addition, the dividend yields have to be higher than average. I used a cutoff of 4 to 6% dividend yield.This is much higher than the S&P 500, with its dividend yield of 1.8%. So picking these stocks has a good chance of appreciation.The stocks also have to be cheap. The price-to-earnings ratio hurdle to make my list is 11 times or lower. This is significantly lower than most stocks trading today. For example, the S&P 500 P/E ratio is 23.8 times earnings. On a forward basis, it is slightly below 20x. So my cutoff is almost 50% to 60% of the market average.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The 10 Worst Dividend Stocks of the Decade Lastly, the company has to be able to afford the dividends. Earnings per share must be higher than the dividend per share.Even with as strict as all that may sound, I still found five stocks that met these criteria in spades. You might consider investing in them. Dividend Stocks to Buy: AT&T (T)Dividend Yield: 5.3%Price-to-Earnings Ratio: 10.8xAverage Dividend Growth Over 5 Years: 2%Source: Mark R. Hake AT&T (NYSE:T) has consistently raised its dividends to shareholders each year. You can see this in the chart I prepared, at right. Dividends per share are growing consistently by 2% or higher each year over the past three to five years.In addition, AT&T is very cheap compared to its earnings per share. The P/E ratio is below 11x.AT&T purchased Time Warner a little over a year ago and is still in the process of integrating the company. Analysts expect earnings to grow by 2.2% in 2020. Moreover, this is also the same amount by which dividends are expected to grow next year.T stock is expected to begin buying back shares on a larger scale. I recently wrote an article about this which you can read here. Moreover, earnings cover T stock dividend very well. The $2.05 dividend rate represents just 57% of its expected $3.55 earnings per share. AbbVie (ABBV)Dividend Yield: 5.3%Price-to-Earnings Ratio: 9.9xAverage Dividend Growth Over 5 years: 21%AbbVie is a $128 billion market value drug manufacturing company. It has consistently raised its dividend over the past five years. You can see this in the chart I have prepared. On average dividends have increased by 21% per year.Source: Mark R. Hake In addition, ABBV stock is very cheap. For example, International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) stock trades for less than 10 times earnings. In 2020, expected earnings of $9.91 per share put ABBV stock at a P/E of 8.75 times.Abbie made a cash and stock bid for Allergan (NYSE:AGN) in late June 2019. AGN is a $61 billion market cap U.K./U.S. drug company. The deal is expected to close in early 2020. AbbVie claims the deal will significantly increase shareholder value.As it stands, the dividend per share for ABBV stock is well covered by its earnings. The annual $4.72 dividend per share represents just 53% of expected earnings of $8.93 per share. * 7 Sinfully Good Casino Stocks That Could Win the Jackpot in 2020 In sum, ABBV stock looks like a good cheap, high-yield and consistent dividend-paying stock worth buying. Dividend Stocks to Buy: Harley-Davidson (HOG)Dividend Yield: 3.9%Price-to-Earnings Ratio: 11.6xAverage Dividend Growth Over 5 Years: 11.99%Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG) stock has a very nice dividend yield of 3.9%. The company has had a rough few years from EU and China tariffs. Nevertheless, HOG has paid consistently higher dividends, as can be seen in the chart. Its average dividend growth has been 12% over the past five years.Source: Mark R. Hake HOG stock presently trades on 11.6 times earnings. The company is experiencing lower earnings from the tariffs and lower bike sales as a result. Nevertheless, it has reduced its costs. Revenue next year is expected to be slightly higher than this year.Earnings for 2020 are expected to be $3.55 per share by analysts covered by Seeking Alpha. That puts HOG stock at less than 11x earnings.The dividend per share of $1.50 is well covered by expected earnings. Once the tariffs are lifted, HOG stock has a good chance of increasing earnings and dividends dramatically.Meanwhile, the dividend yield of almost 4% is a good inducement for investors to wait for things to turn around for Harley-Davidson. International Business Machines (IBM)Dividend Yield: 4.8%Price-to-Earnings: 10.6xAverage Dividend Growth 5 Years: 10.91%IBM has consistently raised its dividend per share over the past 5 years. Its average dividend growth has been stellar at 10.9%. You can see this in the chart at the right.Source: Mark R. Hake In addition, IBM is very cheap. It trades at just 10.6 times earnings. In 2020 EPS is expected to be $13.31 per share, according to Seeking Alpha. This puts IBM stock on just 10x forward earnings.Moreover, IBM's $6.48 dividend per share is just over 50% of the EPS of $12.80 or so expected this year. As a result, you can see the earnings well cover the dividend.I have written several articles on IBM and its push into the hybrid cloud space now that it fully owns Red Hat. IBM paid $34 billion for that acquisition, which closed in early July 2019. IBN believes the hybrid cloud market represents a $1.2 trillion opportunity over the next decade. Most companies will need to move their operations onto the cloud over that period. * 7 Earnings Reports to Watch Next Week This bodes well for IBM over the long run. With its 4.8% dividend yield, IBM stock will pay investors to investors to wait for earnings to take advantage of the expected spike from hybrid cloud growth. Kohl's Corp (KSS)Dividend Yield: 5.5%Price-to-Earnings: 10.3xAverage Dividend Growth 5 Years: 11.4%Kohl's (NYSE:KSS), the department store chain, can catch your eye with a very nice dividend yield of 5.5%. Moreover, KSS has increased its dividend annually on average 11.4% over the past five years.EPS is expected to be $4.77 this year. Therefore KSS's earnings well cover the dividends. Dividends take up just 56% of earnings. In addition, next year EPS is expected to be roughly flat with this year, according to Seeking Alpha.KSS stock trades for about 10 times earnings. KSS stock is very cheap at these prices. For example, several reasons for this relate to tariff headwinds and customers' increasing preference to shop online. Its recent deal to take in Amazon returns will help drive traffic to its physical stores.I believe that Kohl's will be a winner in the omnichannel sales space. At this price, which is very cheap, the dividend pays investors very well to wait for the company to grow earnings.As of this writing, Mark Hake, CFA does not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
