    The $336 Billion-Battered Sector to Watch in Asia: Taking Stock

    Since hitting record highs at the end of January 2018, Bloomberg gauges for both Asia Pacific car manufacturers and parts makers slumped at least 28 percent each to bottom out by the end of December. The two indexes have erased about a combined $336 billion in value from their January highs, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The global automotive industry has buckled under the pressure of dueling tariffs from the ongoing trade war and an attendant economic slowdown in China, the world’s largest auto market, that’s hampered domestic demand.

    Kenton County Airport Board, KY -- Moody's upgrades Kenton County Airport Board's (KY) Ser. 2016 rev. bonds to A1 from A2, assigns A1 to Ser. 2019 rev. bonds; stable outlook

    Moody's Investors Service has upgraded to A1 from A2 Kenton County Airport Board's $42 million Series 2016 bonds and assigned a rating of A1 to the $35 million Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport Revenue Bonds, Series 2019 bonds. The moderate size and long term growth prospects of the service area are overcome by the airport's strong financial and operational flexibility, reflected in projected debt service coverage ratios of between 3.0x-4.0x, days cash on hand in excess of 500, post-sale debt per O&D enplanement of less than $20, a competitive CPE pro forma for the transfer of costs previously borne by Delta, capacity to accommodate future growth, and potentially significant upside from the current baseline attributable to the development of Amazon Air's hub at the airport.

    Buffett Goes Bigger on Banks, Pumps Brakes on Apple Stock

    Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) has filed its final 13f report for 2018 detailing its stock investments and, as usual, people are poring over it like Cold War Kremlinologists … the headlines, however, screamed about Buffett selling out of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock.Source: Shutterstock The report showed the portfolio losing $38 billion during the quarter, almost 21% of its value, during the worst bear market since the 2008 financial meltdown. Berkshire stock fell about 6.5% during the period.But Berkshire only sold about 1% of its Apple stock. AAPL remains the largest holding in the portfolio, and it reportedly wasn't even Buffett doing the selling. The company's "basis" in the shares, its average purchase price, is $126. Apple was due to open on February 15 at $170.40 per share.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher Buffett Likes BanksBuffett started as a stock investor, Berkshire as a sort of mutual fund representing his investments.As Berkshire grew, however, it began buying entire companies, and is now primarily an insurance firm with brands like GEICO and Homestate. Berkshire is also a major electrical utility, one of the largest solar energy investors in the U.S.To the extent it matters to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, its stakes in other companies are its "mad money," an investment pool that's an alternative to the usual insurance industry practice of buying bonds or index funds. The 13f lists 14 fund managers, one for each insurance company.Still, journalists tell us, this is Warren Buffett, he must know something.Buffett knows the value of time. Buffett also knows finance. Buffett knows that banking and insurance are great businesses to be in. Buffett also knows how to take advantage of a huge cash position. This brought the decade's biggest win, warrants in Bank of America (NYSE:BAC).The warrants were purchased at the peak of the 2008 crisis. The warrants cost $5, each convertible into a share of common stock which opened for trade Feb. 15 at $28.39. This is nice work if you can get it. You can if you have billions of dollars in cash and don't lose your nerve. Berkshire now owns about 9.5% of the bank. Bank of America is now Berkshire's second-largest holding.The big news in this report is a renewed bet on big banks. New money went into US Bancorp (NYSE:USB), JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), PNC Financial (NYSE:PNC), and Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK).The 13f shows Berkshire reducing its stake in Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC), which has been under pressure over its various scandals and opened at $48.80. But Berkshire's cost basis in this stock is $24 per share.The big lesson of Berkshire Hathaway is to buy good companies and let time do your work. Even if they falter, you will still have a profit. Berkshire Hathaway and Tech LossesThat is also the lesson of Apple.Buffett has said in the past he doesn't like tech and doesn't understand it. Maybe we should take him at his word. Apple is less a computing play than a company built on consumer products and services.Early in 2018 Berkshire sold entirely out of IBM (NYSE:IBM), and the big tech news here may be that he's getting back in, having bought stock in Red Hat (NYSE:RHT), which IBM is now acquiring.Buffett's biggest tech mistake now may be Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL), which Berkshire exited during the quarter at about break-even. The Bottom Line on Berkshire HathawayApple's stock price collapse after it reported earnings in October cost Buffett's portfolio almost $17 billion, the value of its stake plunging from almost $57 billion to about $39.4 billion. It still represented 21.5% of the portfolio at year-end and was its largest holding.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

    2019's Most Surprisingly Hot Stocks

    The market is off to one of its strongest starts in decades. And although 2019 got rolling with an advantage - coming off the worst December performance in ages - the rally doesn't look terribly strained just yet.Even more surprising are some of the names leading the charge. High-profile stocks, such as the FANG tech companies, have enjoyed solid gains. But some of the biggest winners are names that have fallen off many investors' radars, or were never on them to begin with.What's more heartening is that many of these new uptrends seem built to last for all the right reasons - they're either regaining relevancy, growing the bottom line or both.Here's a look at 10 of the markets most surprising large- and mid-cap stock winners so far in 2019. Their underlying stories are taking a turn for the better, at least in investors' eyes, and all of them merit a closer look, if only for a mental note to reference at a later date.

    5 Fallen-Angel Stocks That Have Been Oversold

    Stocks that are cheaper aren't necessarily cheap. Sometimes, oversold stocks aren't necessarily the best stocks to buy. Sometimes, fallen angel stocks have fallen for good reason.But in the broad market selloff in the fourth quarter, it does look like investors dumped some good names. Housing and construction stocks, for instance, seem to be pricing in a recession. Semiconductor stocks have plunged, with investors reverting from pricing in secular growth to believing the sector is the same old cyclical story. In both cases--and in many other stocks' cases--investors have sold first, and asked questions later.These 5 oversold stocks are among that group. And all five are among the best stocks to buy right now, particularly for investors who believe the market has more upside coming in 2019. Each stock is down at least 30% over the past year. And each of these fallen angels has a path to recover those losses--and perhaps reach new highs. SEE ALSO FROM KIPLINGER: 18 Dividend Aristocrats That Have Gone on Deep Discount

    General Mills to close California yogurt making facility as part of restructuring

    General Mills Inc. disclosed Friday that it will close its yogurt manufacturing facility in Carson, Calif., as part of a new restructuring program approved earlier this week. The stock fell 1.1% in premarket trade. The consumer foods company said it expects to incur about $130 million in expenses, including $25 million in severance costs, as part of the restructuring, which will focus on consolidating production and "optimizing" labor, logistics and manufacturing operations. The expenses will also include about $105 million in exit and project-related costs, primarily asset write-offs. The company expects the restructuring to be completed by the end of fiscal 2021. The stock has tumbled 22% over the past 12 months, while the SPDR Consumer Staple Select Sector ETF has slipped 2.8% and the S&P 500 has gained 0.5%.
