Brexit Update: Pulling the Trigger on Article 50 - The United Kingdom has the fifth-largest economy in the world. So any geopolitical misstep made by the Brits could sink the entire global economy.

It describes how an EU member can voluntarily opt out of the European Union. The document is oddly...

Trump’s Health Care Reform Gets Dissected - As I write, America’s healthcare bill hangs in the balance. The vote was delayed on Thursday, and the House expected a final vote around 5PM on Friday. Whether the bill passes or not, reform is coming. And because healthcare constitutes such a huge chunk of total U.S. spending, the aftershocks of such reform will most certainly be felt. If you don’t have portfolio exposure to health care, you’re doing yourself a tremendous disservice. Health care ...

Dissecting Trump’s Border Wall Parameters - Dear Wall Street Daily Reader, Sometimes my job isn’t especially fun. Like this weekend, when I perused the 132-page government document that outlines the parameters for Trump’s wall. The document offers guidelines to contractors who wish to help build the wall. Among the lines that caught my attention the most were (emphases mine)… >> “The wall design shall be physically imposing in height” >> “The wall design shall include anti-climb topping fea...

Friday Charts: Economic Sentiment Reaches Record High - Dear Wall Street Daily Reader, It’s Friday. And you know what that means in the Wall Street Daily Nation.

Fed Rate Rise Spawns New Opportunity in Small-Caps - Yesterday the Fed decided to boost interest rates by 25 basis points – raising the range of the federal funds rate to 0.75%-1.00%. And stocks responded favorably – with the Dow increasing 108 points by the time the market closed. Now, history shows that the rally might be short lived. While it’s normal for stocks to steadily march higher during the first few days following a rate hike, the market tends to cool off by day seven. Not to wor...

How to Play the World’s Most Overlooked Emerging Market - Luscious fruits and vegetables, exquisite beaches and fine automobiles.

A boring utility stock that’s outperformed the majority o...
