    Why mutual fund managers on a hot streak may be too good for your money

    Instead, the hot hands of even the best investors must eventually cool because their success attracts too much money and eventually overwhelms their market-beating abilities. The key to finding a market-beating investment adviser, therefore, is to find someone after they’ve played their hot hand but before they’ve attracted too much money. Bill Miller, former manager of the Legg Mason Value Trust (LMVTX) , (now ClearBridge Value Trust) is the investment arena’s poster child of an adviser whose incredibly hot hand suddenly became as cold as ice.

    S&P 500 companies return $1 trillion to shareholders in tax-cut surge

    S&P 500 companies have returned a record $1 trillion to shareholders over the past year, helped by a recent surge in dividends and stock buybacks following sweeping corporate tax cuts introduced by Republicans, a report on Friday showed. In the 12 months through March, S&P 500 companies paid out $428 billion in dividends and bought up $573 billion of their own shares, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices analyst Howard Silverblatt. Earnings per share of S&P 500 companies surged 26 percent in the March quarter, boosted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by Republican lawmakers in December.

    Stocks Sit Still While Investors Cheer Up

    After one of the most chaotic quarters of the bull market, stocks have settled back into the slumber that prevailed for the previous 20 months. Statistics from Ned Davis Research Inc. reflect a similar trend. “Earnings have been fantastic, the economic data is solid if not spectacular, meaning we would get a decent economic growth that won’t be fast enough for the Fed to accelerate the tightening cycle,” said Ed Clissold, chief U.S. strategist at Venice, Florida-based Ned Davis.

    Investors find little appetite for consumer staples

    The sector, which includes suppliers of so-called recession-proof items ranging from toilet paper and toothpaste to canned soup and cookies, has fallen 13 percent in 2018, on track for its first annual decline since 2008, while the S&P 500 (.SPX) is up 1.7 percent year-to-date. Investors have been turning away from staples companies because they are grappling with changing consumer preferences, fierce competition and other obstacles to raising prices even as their costs swell. On top of this, the sector - long viewed as a defensive play partly because of its high dividends and predictable growth rate - faces tough competition from fixed income investments while U.S. Treasury yields are rising, and from other equities as most industry groups are generating faster earnings growth.
