VPU: Best Of Breed In A Pack Of Dogs (NYSEARCA:VPU

This was wonderful for those who bought it back in 2015, as the share price has tripled since then, but investors looking to deploy their money now would probably think twice about buying it, as its current P/E is appropriate only for a growth stock with huge potential earnings upside, which NEE, with an earnings growth rate of 7.77%.

However, when I went to see how that number of holdings compares with the number of holdings of other high profile utility ETFs, I discovered that VPU holds more stocks than the 57 stocks held by iShares' U.S. Utilities ETF (IDU) which is limited to U.S. stocks.

When I looked at the other two Utility ETFs, I saw that the top 10 stocks in each of those ETFs made up an even higher percent of the value of the total holdings.

I downloaded the complete list of the fund's holdings and was able to compute the percentages of all the other stocks in the ETF using the figure Vanguard gives for the fund's total value.

I then used FAST Graphs to take a look at some of the metrics of these top 25 stocks as reported by FAST Graphs, including the current P/E ratio, the five-year average P/E ratio, the current price, current price target, the five-year price target, the earnings per share growth of the company over the past five years, and stock's 10-year average dividend growth percentage.

Stocks Waver Amid Growing Stimulus Worries

U.S. stocks fell at the start of the new week, amid dimming hopes for a pre-election U.S. stimulus deal and despite data showing China’s economy continues to grow.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said late on Saturday that the White House had 48 hours to strike a stimulus deal with the Democrats that could pass before Election Day.

“Data on Friday showed US retail sales rose sharply in September with spending above the pre-pandemic level, but there are fears the lack of stimulus will start to bite,” said Neil Wilson, chief market analyst for Markets.com, in a note to clients.

The global recovery was in focus on Monday after China’s economy grew 4.9% in the third quarter, which was slower than expected but still shows growth momentum continues.

Boeing (BA) shares slipped 0.6% in late afternoon trades.

Liz Weston: Why day traders are doomed and investors should avoid individual stocks

The Nasdaq composite stock index rose 400% in five years, only to lose all of those gains from March 2000 to October 2002.

A rising stock market, and a flood of inexperienced and excitable investors willing to bid up stock prices, has convinced more than a few day traders that they’re part of that 1%.

Brokerages have reported a surge in trading and new accounts this year, starting with March’s stock market crash when investors rushed in looking for bargains.

While we wait for the inevitable crash, let’s review not only why day traders are doomed but also why most people shouldn’t trade, or even invest in, individual stocks.

People who trade stocks instantly lose a little money on each transaction because of this difference.

Looking For Last Week's Momentum To Carry Through The Rest Of October

Those final three days accounted for pretty much all of my profits through last week, about $115,000 between my main trading account and my IRA account.

Finally, I was able to tag up on the big move in Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) in Friday’s premarket and then catch Kaixin Auto Holdings (NASDAQ: KXIN) after it came out of a halt.

Those initial days of last week were mostly flat for my trading account, though Monday started off rocky with sizable losses in Monday’s leading gap stocks, Medley Management Inc. (NASDAQ: MDLY) and Lizhi Inc. (NASDAQ: LIZI).

While the broad market seems to be in a holding position until the U.S. presidential election on November 3, the stocks I traded through last week saw a good amount of momentum after a brief period of choppiness on Monday and Tuesday.

I’m hopeful this week will see more of the follow-through that the back half of last week had, but I’m still going to keep my max share size reasonable in case the market starts to waver in its support.

Robinhood just had another controversial week that frustrated users. Here's what went down.

Robintrack.net was a website that used Robinhood's public data feed to tell users how many Robinhood accounts owned a particular stock on any given day.

Also on Thursday, Robinhood sent out an e-mail prior to the market open notifying its users of an increase in the cash reserve needed to trade on margin for some widely held securities.

Following a Bloomberg report from last week on a number of Robinhood users who helplessly saw their accounts liquidated, a separate Bloomberg report said on Thursday that an internal review at the company found nearly 2,000 compromised Robinhood accounts, according to an unnamed source familiar with the review.

But some Robinhood news that may excite investors is a Bloomberg report that says the app may once again make trading data public, which would reopen the popular Robintrack.net website.

Also on Thursday, Robinhood sent out notices to its users that traders on margin would have to increase their cash position on several widely held stocks to help protect them from potential volatility related to the US election.

A late slide erases gains for US indexes, leaving them mixed

NEW YORK -- Wall Street closed out a choppy week of trading with more of the same Friday, as a late-afternoon stumble led U.S. stock indexes to a mixed finish.

The market had been up for much of the day after the government reported that retail sales rose in September for the fifth straight month.

The market's late-day fade capped a week of volatility for stocks as companies began reporting their third-quarter results and traders' hopes for a new round of economic stimulus from Washington dimmed.

Stocks have been mostly climbing this month, but trading became choppy this week as ongoing talks between Democrats and Republicans on an economic stimulus package failed to deliver results.

The Federal Reserve said Friday that U.S. industrial production fell 0.6% last month, the weakest showing since April’s 12.7% skid amid widespread business shutdowns due to the pandemic.
