Wall Street was optimistic this morning after the release of the May jobs report. The Labor Department reported that the U.S. economy added 559,000 jobs last month, slightly lower than the 671,000 jobs expected. However May’s jobs number is a drastic improvement from April’s disappointing 266,000 jobs addition. The three benchmarks moved slightly higher on the news.
Financial stocks have been in the limelight this year. The Financial Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) has outperformed the broader market, with a total return of more than 32% year-to-date, compared to the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) which is only up 13.5% in the same period.
Our trade alert for today highlights what some are calling the next financial stock to shake up the industry.

Report: 3 Value Stocks Trading at a Bargain
For the past ten years, hot growth stocks have been the better bet, providing average returns during the period of 15.35%, as compared to 7.61% for value investing portfolios. But now there are a multitude of experts proclaiming that value stocks will be en vogue in 2021 – and indeed, many already started to rally in 2020’s late innings.
Cyclical stocks considered too risky just a few months ago are suddenly flashing on investors’ radar.
Bank of America, for instance, sees the U.S. stock market in the early stages of a value cycle that will pick up steam in 2021. “The relative discount for value stocks remains nearly two standard deviations below average, “ BofA analysts say.
In this article we highlight three stocks that seem timely in a post-pandemic world, which for practical purposes should materialize in 2021.
Watchlist: 3 Stocks to Watch This Week
Investors are anticipating key data this week. Consumer confidence, home price data and new home sales are out on Tuesday. Durable goods will be released Thursday and the consumer sentiment report is issued Friday. Perhaps the most important announcement will be Friday’s personal income and consumer spending data, which includes the personal consumption expenditure price deflator, the Fed’s preferred inflation measure.
Volatility could continue as Wall Street processes a slew of economic data. But if what we have witnessed as the market has chopped around this month is any indicator, dip buyers are waiting to step into declines and snap up perceived bargains.
Report: Forget Short Selling. Do this instead
When a sharp market downturn occurs, you can benefit from taking the reverse direction of the markets.
Investors use bearish bets to hedge their portfolios or to turn a quick profit if things get ugly. The main risk of traditional short-selling is that while profit is capped (a stock can only fall to zero), risk is theoretically unlimited.
Of course, other tactics can be used to cover a position at any time, but with a short-selling position, inventors are at risk of receiving margin calls on their trading account if their short position moves against them.

Report: The 2021 SPAC Power Playbook
2020 was a year where we heard a LOT about what some have dubbed “blank check companies.” But more sophisticated investors refer to these potential unicorns as “Special Purpose Acquisition Companies” or SPACs from here on out in this power playbook.
With the IPO market booming and investors looking for bigger and better returns, SPACs are revving up their engines in hot pursuit of their merger targets. And every single day, a new one gets announced.
And I’m betting the only reason you aren’t already in on this profit opportunity is because you don’t really “get it.” After you finish this playbook, that won’t be a problem anymore.
