The riskiest oil and gas companies are as unpopular as ever, fund managers say. Third-quarter earnings were a critical time for energy companies’ financial performances, and investors found some of them lacking.

Beleaguered shares of small U.S. companies are set for a bump in performance as value stocks have risen, market analysts say, but small caps could quickly fade again with an economic setback.

All that good news helped send the S&P 500 Index (SPX) and Nasdaq (COMP) to record highs Friday. A possible one emerged early Monday when Bloomberg reported that U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said licenses for U.S. companies to sell components to China’s Huawei will come “very shortly.” Ross also said the U.S. might not have to slap tariffs on European cars, perhaps a sign of a thaw in that trade relationship.
Wall Street stocks have climbed to record highs as worries over U.S.-China trade relations and the Federal Reserve's monetary policy have receded, but cautious investors have been sticking with technology shares and some defensive stocks over value stocks and more speculative plays such as IPOs.
