    US STOCKS-Wall St gains on stimulus cues, U.S.-China trade progress

    U.S. stocks ticked higher on Friday, as cues of easing monetary policy around the globe and signs of further co-operation on Sino-U.S. trade talks kept the S&P 500 within 1% of a record high. China cut its new one-year benchmark lending rate for the second month in a row, days after the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank reduced borrowing costs and left the door open for further monetary stimulus. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq were set to end the week little changed after a rough start, sparked by attacks on Saudi oil facilities.

    Dow Jones Today: Fed Obliges, Stocks Don’t

    As was widely expected, the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates today by 25 basis points, but that wasn't enough to spark upside for equities. Nor was it enough for President Donald Trump who criticized the Fed for lacking "sense" and "vision" because it didn't lower rates by 50 basis points.Source: rafapress / Shutterstock.com Three Fed governors voted against today's rate cut, prompting some investors to express concern about the path forward."In determining the timing and size of future adjustments to the target range for the federal funds rate, the Committee will assess realized and expected economic conditions relative to its maximum employment objective and its symmetric 2 percent inflation objective," the Federal Open Market Committee wrote in a statement.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis assessment will take into account a wide range of information, including measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and expectations, and readings on financial and international developments.So today the Nasdaq Composite slipped 0.1% while the S&P 500 added just 0.03%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.1%. In late trading, half of the Dow stocks were pointed higher. The only sector in the U.S. that closed higher today was, unsurprisingly, utilities. Small Winners CircleThere weren't many Dow winners today and among that small group, the gains were, well, small. One surprise was JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM). Financial services stocks usually benefit from higher interest rates, and JPM and its rival banks have recently been complaining about the effects lower rates have on their net interest margins. In late trading JPM was the only financial services name in the Dow trading higher. * 7 CBD Stocks to Buy That Are Still Worth Your Investment Dollars Another surprise, though of the disappointing variety, was Merck (NYSE:MRK). This Dow component barely nudged higher despite some encouraging news about its Keytruda cancer treatment. Regulators in Australia, Canada and the U.S. approved Keytruda to treat advanced endometrial carcinoma.This is significant news, but the stock barely moved higher today. Hey, it's not everyday three major developed markets approve a cancer treatment on the same day."Merck said regulators approved the use of Keytruda with a drug called Lenvima, discovered by the Japanese company Eisai (OTCMKTS:ESALY), to treat some instances of advanced endometrial carcinoma, a serious condition for which patients currently have few options," Josh Nathan-Kazis wrote for Barron's.Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) was a Dow winner today, and like the others, it was in modest fashion. P&G is one of the Dow's best-performing names this year. And some traders are getting bullish about options on the consumer goods giant's shares. Apple, AgainYes, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been making a lot of appearances here in recent days -- and the iPhone maker is back today. Wedbush released a note earlier today forecasting 185 million in iPhone 11 shipments for fiscal 2020. Analysts also wrote that pre-orders for the phone in the U.S. have been strong.Up nearly 8% this month, Apple has been one of the best-performing Dow stocks in September. Bottom Line on the Dow Jones TodayIt's clear that market participants are focusing on the Fed's division. However, because the central bank did not cut by 50 basis points today, it has another 25 basis point cut in its back pocket. Chairman Jerome Powell overtly said that the Fed can deploy more rate reductions if the economy sours, which he doesn't see happening right now.Speaking of the economy, the Fed upped its 2019 gross domestic product forecast to growth of 2.2%. That's up slightly from June's estimate of 2.1%. For now, the central bank is standing firm on its forecast of 2% GDP growth in 2020.As of this writing, Todd Shriber does not own any of the aforementioned securities.

    10 Companies Making Their CEOs Rich

    The headline "The Stock-Buyback Swindle" says it all. The Atlantic magazine's August issue had a story about how American companies are spending trillions on stock buybacks to enrich their CEOs. Much of the article's content has been covered extensively by business media -- both the pros and cons -- so I won't rehash the arguments. However, one of author Jerry Useem's paragraphs bears repeating because it hits at the core of the problem."Corporations describe the practice as an efficient way to return money to shareholders," Useem wrote. "By reducing the number of shares outstanding in the market, a buyback lifts the price of each remaining share. But that spike is often short-lived: A study by the research firm Fortuna Advisors found that, five years out, the stocks of companies that engaged in heavy buybacks performed worse for shareholders than the stocks of companies that didn't."InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsI've always believed that if a company wants to allocate its free cash flow to shareholders, it should do so by paying a special dividend, not by repurchasing shares or paying a regular dividend. * 7 CBD Stocks to Buy That Are Still Worth Your Investment Dollars Stock buybacks distort earnings growth while regular quarterly dividends ratchet up shareholder expectations. Neither is good for the long-term health of a business. But it's especially galling when stock buybacks enrich a CEO at the expense of the rank-and-file employees.Love them or hate them, these 10 companies are making their CEOs rich. Stock Buybacks Making CEOs Rich: Oracle (ORCL)Source: JHVEPhoto / Shutterstock.com According to the Equilar 200 study, Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL) co-CEOs Mark Hurd and Safra Catz earned a combined $298 million in total compensation in fiscal 2017 and 2018, of which approximately 96% came from stock grants and option awards. In 2018, Hurd and Catz were paid 1,205 times the company's median pay of $89,887. As a tandem, Hurd and Catz own 49.7 million shares, which are worth $2.7 billion at current prices. The duo's compensation in 2017 and 2018 fails to take into consideration the amount paid through vested shares. Catz received $158 million in shares that vested in fiscal 2018 alone. As for share repurchases, the company repurchased $51 billion of its stock over the past three fiscal years, reducing its share count by 14%. Not surprisingly, its earnings per share increased by 43% over the same period. JPMorgan (JPM)Source: Bjorn Bakstad / Shutterstock.com JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) CEO James Dimon earned $58 million in total compensation in fiscal 2017 and 2018, approximately 77% of it from stock grants. In 2018, Dimon was paid 381 times the company's median pay of $78,923.Dimon owns 10 million shares if you include options, which are worth $1.2 billion at current prices. In 2018 alone, the JPMorgan CEO had $11 million in stock vest on top of his total compensation for the year.

JPMorgan increased its earnings per share by 50% over the same period. Microsoft (MSFT)Source: gguy / Shutterstock.com Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) CEO Satya Nadella earned $46 million in total compensation in fiscal 2017 and 2018, approximately 61% of it from stock grants and option awards. In 2018, Nadella was paid a relatively reasonable 154 times the company's median pay of $167,689.Nadella owns 2.9 million shares if you include options, which are worth $393.6 million at current prices. In 2018 alone, Nadella had $25.8 million in Microsoft stock vest on top of his total compensation for the year. As for share repurchases, the company repurchased $42 billion of its stock over the past three fiscal years, reducing its share count by 3%. That's not surprising given how much stock the company issues to employees for a job well done. Microsoft managed to increase its earnings per share by 98% over the same period. Merck (MRK)Source: JHVEPhoto / Shutterstock.com Merck (NYSE:MRK) CEO Kenneth Frazier earned $38 million in total compensation in fiscal 2017 and 2018, approximately 68% of it from stock grants and option awards. In 2018, Frazier was paid 215 times the company's median pay of $82,173.Frazier owns 3.7 million shares if you include options, which are worth $307.5 million at current prices. In 2018 alone, the Merck CEO had $41.3 million in stock vest on top of his total compensation for the year. As for share repurchases, the company repurchased $16.5 billion of its stock over the past three fiscal years, reducing its share count by 6%. Merck managed to increase its earnings per share by 49% over the same period. However, its GAAP results have been very choppy over the past decade. You'll want to take this with a grain of salt. Apple (AAPL)Source: View Apart / Shutterstock.com According to the 2018 version of the Equilar 200, a list of the 200 highest-paid CEOs in America, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) CEO Tim Cook made $29 million in total compensation in fiscal 2017 and 2018, none of it from stock grants or options. In 2018, Cook was paid 283 times the company's median pay of $55,426. However, one needn't feel sorry for Cook. He owns 878,425 shares of Apple stock worth $198 million as (as of Sept. 12). In addition, Cook has had more than a million shares of AAPL stock vest in the last two years alone. This means his compensation for 2017 and 2018 was actually much higher than $29 million. As for share repurchases, the company repurchased $135.3 billion of its stock over the past three fiscal years, reducing its share count by 14%. Not surprisingly, its earnings per share increased by 29% over the same period.

    3 Big Stock Charts for Monday: Merck, Facebook and Microsoft

    The market didn't end last week on a high note, but then again, it didn't need to. Even with Friday's 0.07% setback for the S&P 500, the index still mustered just a little less than a 1% advance for the five-day stretch. That makes a third winning week in a row.Source: Shutterstock Oversized Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is the reason the broad market could get up and over the hump, falling nearly 2% in Friday's action after investors rethought the costs related to the company's strategy of attracting people to its hardware and new streaming service. That impact was more than smaller names like General Electric (NYSE:GE) could offset. GE was up nearly 1% on the last day of last week, buoyed by optimism surrounding what should amount to a $5 billion debt reduction, funded by asset sales. * 10 Recession-Resistant Services Stocks to Buy As for names worth exploring as Monday's action gets going, however, the stock charts of Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Merck (NYSE:MRK) are of the most interest. Here's why.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Microsoft (MSFT)There's no denying Microsoft shares have been one of the market's best and most reliable performers for years now. Even the headwind that hammered most names late last year wasn't horrific for MSFT stock, and shares recovered quite nicely this year from that lull.This year's overheated rally looks like it has run its full course though, progressing even faster than the 2017/2018 gain. Although it's not past the point of no return yet, the action since late July suggests the bears are taking their shot. They've been nice enough to leave clear clues. * Click to EnlargeThe biggest clue to speak of is the converging wedge shape that's formed since July. The lower boundary, plotted in blue, traces all the lows going back to December's low. * Although not overwhelmingly so, the volume tide has started to lean bearishly. Should the Chaikin line on the weekly chart fall under zero, that may be the proverbial tipping point. * As for a plausible downside target, the past two major setbacks have pulled Microsoft shares just below the 200-day moving average line, marked in white on both stock charts. Merck (MRK)Shares of drugmaker Merck have dished out a healthy, even if at times uneven, rally over the course of the past year and a half. Even factoring in the current lull, MRK stock is still up 56% from its early 2018 low.The complexion of that advance has slowly but surely -- maybe even imperceptibly -- taken a turn for the worst though. While still seemingly in bullish mode, the momentum is fading and the pokes at key technical floors are more frequent and more potent. * 7 Tech Stocks You Should Avoid Now * Click to EnlargeThe slowdown of the advance is easily indicated on the daily chart, with each resistance line, marked in yellow, plotted at a shallower direction than the prior one. * It's not a detail even the most focused of chart watchers would notice or care about, but each peak of the Chaikin line since the beginning of this year has been lower than the past, underscoring the slowdown. Ditto for the MACD crossunders. * So far the 200-day moving average line, marked in white on both stock charts, has held up as a floor. The straight-line support that tags all the key lows since early 2018, however, was tested again last week. That's the make-or-break level, marked as a dashed blue line on the weekly chart. Facebook (FB)It's interesting. All stock charts demonstrate some degree of interplay with their moving average. Sometimes it means a lot, and sometimes it means little. It's something that at the very least has to be respected though.To that end, Facebook has been strangely responsive to its moving average line, sometimes being stopped and reversed at them, and other times being blasted past them when they're passed. That's what makes the past couple of weeks so curious … and a little bearish. * Click to EnlargeThe chief worry here is how FB stock tested but failed to hurdle the 50-day moving average line, plotted in purple on both stock charts, this month. As the daily chart shows, the 50-day line has been a biggie. * That being said, there are still a couple of other, albeit less meaningful, moving average lines that have been boundaries in the past that could become a boundary again. * Fueling the prospect of more downside is the fact that, over the long haul, FB stock is no stranger to major moves. The stock is still closer to being overbought than not from this year's rebound move, as indicated by the weekly chart's RSI tool.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
