The baby boomers are getting older, and as they age, they become more concerned about their health, living as long as they can, and living as healthy as they can. The boomers get concerned about age related illnesses and diseases that can affect them.
Fortunately, there are a few companies involved in targeting human aging and degenerative diseases. There are many companies involved in developing treatments and cures for many diseases, such as cancer, and may have a small part of their business involved in age reversal. But there aren’t many companies involved age extension as a pure play. Here are a few longevity stocks worth doing further research on.
Cohbar (CWBR) is a clinical stage biotechnology company which concentrates  on the research and development of mitochondria based therapeutics, an emerging class of drugs for the treatment of chronic and age-related diseases. CohBars therapeutics offer the potential to treat a broad range of diseases, including nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, obesity, fibrotic diseases, cancer, acute respiratory distress syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. The company is even in a pre-clinical program for COVID-19 associated ARDS. This  Menlo Park, California based company was founded in 2007. The stock has a market cap of $97 million and has been generating negative earnings. It has $12.5 million in total cash and long term debt of $3.4 million.
AgeX Therapeutics, Inc. (AGE) is an Alameda, California based biotechnology company founded in 2017, with a great stock ticker symbol.The company develops and commercializes novel therapeutics targeting human aging. The company’s two major proprietary technologies are PureStem® and induced Tissue Regeneration (iTR™). PureStem® can generate pluripotent stem cell-derived young cells of any type for potential application in a range of degenerative diseases of aging with a high unmet medical need. iTR™ is the company’s longevity platform with a goal of unlocking cellular immortality and regenerative capacity to reverse age-related changes in the body. The stock has a market cap of $32 million and has been generating negative earnings. It has $2.3 million in total cash and $1.5 million in long term debt.
resTORbio, Inc. (TORC) is a Boston, Massachusetts based company founded in 2016, which is involved in developing innovative medicines that target the biology of aging to prevent or treat aging-related diseases. The company’s lead clinical program is selectively targeting TORC1, an evolutionarily conserved pathway that contributes to the age-related decline in function of multiple organ systems, including neurologic function. Inhibition of TORC1 has the potential to improve the function of aging organ systems and address multiple aging related diseases. The stock has a market cap of $77 million and has been generating negative earnings. It has total cash of $91 million and virtually no long term debt.
Please be aware that these are extremely low cap stocks and should be considered very speculative.

by Fred Fuld III
Just one week ago, President Trump’s administration announced a $1 trillion infrastructure proposal to stimulate the economy. Then just four days ago, the House Democrats came up with a $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill.
This huge amount of money should not only help the economy but should also benefit certain stocks involved in the infrastructure business. Here is a list of ten infrastructure stocks that could show an increase in revenues, earnings, and stock price due to the money flowing into this arena.
Arcosa (ACA) provides infrastructure-related products and solutions for the construction, energy, and transportation markets, including commercial, industrial, road and bridge, and underground construction. The stock has a price to earnings ratio of 17 and pays a yield of 0.5%.

(ROAD) is an infrastructure and road construction company, providing products and services to public and private infrastructure projects, such as highways, roads, bridges, airports, and commercial sites. The stock has a price to earnings ratio of 22 and does not pay a dividend.
Primoris Services Corporation (PRIM) is a specialty contractor and infrastructure company, which provides construction, fabrication, maintenance, replacement, and engineering services, including highway and bridge construction, airport runway and taxiway construction, and demolition. The stock has a P/E ratio of 11 and pays a yield of 1.4%.
Tutor Perinin (TPC) is a construction company that provides diversified general contracting, construction management, and design-build services. The company has been generating negative earnings and does not pay a dividend.
Nucor (NUE) manufactures and sells steel and steel products used in numerous infrastructure projects. The stock has a P/E ratio of 16.5 and pays a yield of 3.8%.
Vulcan Materials (VMC) produces and markets construction aggregates, asphalt mix and ready-mixed concrete for highways, airports, and government buildings. The stock has a P/E ratio of 26 and pays a yield of 1.1%.
Martin Marietta Materials (MLM) is a major supplier of aggregates and heavy building materials. The stock has a P/E ratio of 22 and pays a yield of 1.0%.

Aecom (ACM) is a provider of design, engineering, and construction services. The company has been generating negative earnings and does not pay a dividend.
Caterpillar (CAT) is a heavy equipment manufacturer with products used in infrastructure. The stock has a P/E ratio of 13 and pays a yield of 3.2%.

Classic Historical Books About Wall Street and the Stock Market

Please note that this is a sister publication of WallStreetNewsNetwork ( https://WStNN.com ) and eventually everything on this site will be transferred over there.


by Fred Fuld III
Sometimes history repeats itself. Sometimes it pays to look at the past to get perspective about the present and the future. Sometimes it’s just fun and fascinating to read about what was going on in the investment market years ago.
Here is a list of stock market and Wall Street books written a long time ago, one of which is from the 1800’s. With the quarantine in place, you probably have a lot more reading time. Here is a refreshing change from the “get rich quick in the stock market” books.
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator – first published in 1923
by Edwin Lefevre
This is the classic book on investing, trading, market timing, and crowd psychology, just as true today as it was almost a century ago. It is based on the life of top notorious trader, Jesse Livermore.
My Adventures with Your Money – first published in 1911
by George Graham Rice
About a conman who make money off the early gold mining stock boom.
The PLUNGERS and the PEACOCKS. 150 years of Wall Street – published in 1967
by Dana L. Thomas
Written during the bull market of the 1960s, it provides an entertaining history of the stock market.
Den of Thieves – published in 1991
by James B. Stewart
The “newest” of these old books, it covers the insider trading scandals involving Ivan Boesky, Michael Milken, and other Wall Street financiers  during the 1980s.
Storming The Magic Kingdom – published in 1987
by John Taylor
A must read book about the fight for control of one of America’s most famous companies.
Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds (1841) by Charles Mackay included as part of Stock Market Trivia Volume 2(2014)
The Extraordinary Popular Delusions book was written in the mid-1800s. It has many chapters, but most are unrelated to investing, such as alchemy, witches, haunted houses, etc. However, three of the chapters have extensive and entertaining information about three of the largest investment bubbles in history: the Mississippi Scheme, the South Sea Bubble, and the Tulip Mania. These three chapters are included as the last half of the  Stock Market  Trivia Volume 2 book. (In interest of full disclosure, I wrote the Stock Market Trivia 2 book.) In addition, the trivia book includes such things as the chocolate chip cookie/stock market correlation, celebrity stock indices, weird stock certificates, and much more.
Happy reading.

Stocks Going Ex Dividend in May 2020

Please note that this is a sister publication of WallStreetNewsNetwork ( https://WStNN.com ) and eventually everything on this site will be transferred over there.

The following is a short list of some of the many stocks going ex dividend during the next month.
Many traders and investors use the stock trading technique called ‘Buying Dividends,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Dividend Capture.’ This is the strategy of buying stocks before the ex dividend date and selling the stock shortly after the ex date at about the same price, yet still being entitled to the dividend.
This technique generally works in bull markets and flat or choppy markets, but you need to avoid the strategy during bear markets. In order to be entitled to the dividend, you have to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date, and you can’t sell the stock until after the ex date.
The actual dividend may not be paid for another few weeks. WallStreetNewsNetwork.com has compiled a downloadable and sortable list of the stocks going ex dividend in the near future. The list contains many dividend paying companies, lots with market caps over $500 million, and many with yields over 2%. Here are a few examples showing the stock symbol, the ex-dividend date, the periodic dividend amount.
Intel Corporation (INTC)5/6/20200.332.24%
Walmart Inc. (WMT)5/7/20200.541.67%
Consolidated Edison Inc (ED)5/12/20200.7653.70%
Target Corporation (TGT)5/19/20200.662.45%
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)5/22/20201.012.61%
Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS)5/29/20201.252.82%
The additional ex-dividend stocks can be found HERE . (If you have been to the page before, and the latest link doesn’t show up, you may have to empty your cache.) If you like dividend stocks, you should check out some of the other high yield stock lists HERE . Most of the lists are free.
Dividend definitions:
Declaration date: the day that the company declares that there is going to be an upcoming dividend.
Ex-dividend date: the day on which if you buy the stock, you would not be entitled to that particular dividend; or the first day on which a shareholder can sell the shares and still be entitled to the dividend.
Record date: the day when you must be on the company’s books as a shareholder to receive the dividend. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks at two business days before the record date.
Payment date: the day on which the dividend payment is actually made, which can be as long at two months after the ex date.
Don’t forget to reconfirm the ex-dividend date with the company before implementing this technique.
