    Ferrari may be a carmaker but its valuation is more similar to those of luxury powerhouses like LVMH (OTCPK:LVMUY), Kering (OTCPK:PPRUY) or Richemont (OTCPK:CFRUY) than those of fellow car companies like former parent FCA or Germanys Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF), BMW (OTCPK:BMWYY) or Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY). No other automotive brand, luxury or volume, can compete with Ferrari’s operative EBIT margin of 22.69 percent and EBITDA margin of 30.3 percent for the full year 2017 (the runner-up being Volkswagen-owned Porsche with a margin of 17.6 percent for 2017). In my eyes, this is further proof of the fact that a Ferrari is not primarily a car but a luxury product. It just happens to be a luxury product that presents itself in the form of a car. The overwhelming majority of cars are purchased out of necessity. Even a premium product like a Mercedes-Benz or a BMW will in most cases remain a tool of transportation above everything else – although I could imagine that some of my fellow countrymen from Germany would fiercely disagree with me on this. No one, however, needs a Ferrari. Please note that I allow myself to exclude needs of the ego from my definition of necessity here. Still, Ferraris are in high demand. That is because customers dont buy them because they need but because they want them. It is this passion that ensures the companys success. It is noteworthy that at Ferrari revenue (+10 percent in 2017; +11.2 percent currency-adjusted) increases at a significantly faster pace than shipments (+4.8 percent in 2017) do. This underlines the business’s pricing power.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

ZTE shares spiked more than 20% on Thursday after the US government announced the Chinese company will soon clear the last major hurdle to removing a crippling ban.

ZTE (ZTCOF), which makes smartphones and telecommunications equipment, has been in crisis mode since the US Commerce Department blocked American companies from selling it vital components in April. The move forced it to halt almost all of its operations and fueled tensions between the Chinese and American governments.

After Beijing intervened, the Trump administration reached a deal with ZTE to lift the ban in exchange for a series of other punishments, including the company overhauling its top management, bringing in an American monitoring team and paying a $1 billion fine.

The deal also requires ZTE, which employs around 75,000 people, to put $400 million in an escrow account.

The Commerce Department said Wednesday that it had signed the escrow agreement with ZTE, and once it receives the money, it will allow ZTE to resume buying parts from American companies. ZTE paid the hefty fine last month and appointed a new CEO and other executives last week.

    Now, here’s a closer look at today’s Money Morning insight, the most important market events, and stocks to watch.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Today, investors will watch earnings season kick into high gear. A busy day of reports started today with a solid one from UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH). The health insurance giant’s stock could jump up to 3% after topping Wall Street expectations, while Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) could gain another 2% thanks to a solid report.
    The U.S. Federal Reserve could hold interest rates in place until late 2020, according to one prominent member of the central bank. On Monday, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said that the Fed can hold off on raising rates until around the election. Evans said that holding off will help “support the inflation outlook.” Keep a close eye on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), whose shares are dancing with the $200 level. With Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) set to report earnings, Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) launching its own streaming service, and Hulu losing a major investor, all eyes are on Tim Cook’s company and its plans to enter the highly competitive content wars. Last week, AAPL stock received a price target upgrade from Wedbush, $215 to $225 per share. But if you’ve been following us, you’d know that $225 is our long-term outlook for one of the world’s top companies.
    Stocks to Watch Today: NFLX, DIS, CMCSA, T, CSX
    Earnings season is in full swing, and investors will keep an eye out later for Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX). The global streaming giant reports earnings today. Prior to its earnings report, Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) upgraded its stance from a “Hold” to a “Buy” and expects stronger subscriber growth on top of higher monthly subscription costs. The German bank set a price target of $400 per share. NFLX stock is up 30% so far this year, but the stock faces increasing competition from a variety of challengers.

    Brace Yourself: The 5G revolution is unleashin

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    It’s not all good news on the trade front. Shares of Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) fell nearly 1% after the company received a downgrade from German financial giant Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB). The bank slashed its price target for CAT stock from $152 to $128 on concerns that “synchronized global growth has collapsed, [and] the China Land Cycle is rolling over.” The bank added that “Europe is slowing more than expected and the U.S. is oversaturated with construction equipment.” Global growth concerns continue to accelerate and raise worries that the international economy is slipping into a recession. Central banks are tapped out on debt and have limited stimulus options.
    Brent crude prices pushed toward $70 per barrel. This is the fourth consecutive day of gains as markets continue to project a tightening balance between global supply and demand. U.S. WTI crude prices were moving toward $63 per barrel as cuts by OPEC, American sanctions against Iran and Venezuela, and reduced shipments to Asia support prices. However, oil could see a bit of pressure today after the American Petroleum Institute announced a surprise uptick in domestic crude inventories. The U.S. Department of Energy will release the official report on U.S. inventory levels later today.
    Stocks to Watch Today: GME, NFLX, PLAY
    Shares of GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) plunged more than 12.2% in pre-market hours after the retail firm fell well short of earnings expectations. The company offered a weak outlook, saying it doesn’t anticipate an increase in sales this year. In fact, it expects sales to fall by 5% to 10% this year. The stock fell to its lowest level since 2005. The company is facing added pressure from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL), two Silicon Valley giants that plan to launch their own video game streaming services in the future.
