* Insider buying can be an encouraging signal for potential investors. * Directors stepped up to make sizable share purchases last week. * Some of those transaction came in the wake of earnings reports.Conventional wisdom says that insiders and 10% owners really only buy shares of a company for one reason -- they believe the stock price will rise and they want to profit.

Last week I wrote that this was the end of the Warren Buffett era as Berkshire (BRK)(BRK) underperformed the S&P 500 (SPX) over the entire 2009-2020 bear market. Many Buffett fans responded by saying don’t count Buffett out yet because when (not if) the market tanks again, he’ll have more than $130 billion in cash to scoop up bargains. Based on Berkshire’s SEC filings, three of Buffett’s biggest recent investments—Kraft Heinz (KHC) , Occidental Petroleum (OXY) , and airline stocks—have lost at least $7 billion altogether out of an investment of roughly $10 billion in each.
Whether you're just getting started investing or are a seasoned stock picker, emulating the success of Warren Buffett is probably one of your dreams. The good news is that it's easy to see what Buffett's favorite stocks are, since he personally selects, or approves the purchase of, every stock in Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK.A) (NYSE: BRK.B) portfolio. Most of Buffett's net worth is invested in Berkshire, and this conglomerate must list its holdings in periodic reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The coronavirus crisis has effectively reset the board. While both the economy and stock market will someday return to their earlier-year strength, neither will look the same. That means some of the best stocks to buy right now might look much different from top picks just a few quick months ago.The market might very well have another leg down. It's far too early to say we're out of the woods given that most of America is under quarantine and we have yet to see what first-quarter earnings and second-quarter guidance looks like. But we're getting late in the game for a truly defensive posture. That's closing the barn door after the horse has already bolted. While a few protective picks might be in order, now is the time to start planning for the next bull market.Even professional bears are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel."I'm selectively buying in my personal accounts," says John Del Vecchio, co-manager of the AdvisorShares Ranger Equity Bear ETF (HDGE). "There were plenty of companies that went into this crisis on life support, kept alive by cheap debt. You're going to see a lot of these companies fail. But at the same time, a lot of high-quality blue chips are on sale right now at prices we may never see again in our lifetimes."Many companies will be gutted. It might take years for airlines to return to pre-crisis passenger numbers, and they might go through bankruptcy or a government conservatorship in the meantime. Likewise, retailers and restaurants might be dealing with the fallout from lockdowns for months or years, as will their banks and landlords.However, some of Wall Street's best stocks could come out of this with relatively minor scratches. Many have massive stores of cash that will help them weather short-term profit drops. Some might actually benefit from a coming recession by picking up market share when its competitors fold. Many of these beneficiaries are tech stocks, but certainly not all. Plenty are in the gritty, old-fashioned real economy.Today, we'll look at 20 of the best stocks to buy now as investors shift their focus to the recovery. These companies boast a blend of well-positioned businesses, strong balance sheets and/or leading positions within their industries. SEE ALSO: 25 Dividend Stocks the Analysts Love the Most

USD/CAD rebounded above 1.4000 as the U.S. dollar gains ground on increased demand for safe haven assets.
A historic pandemic is under way, with many, if not most, Americans trying to hunker down and stay home as much as possible. Many of those who are able to are working from home now; many others have lost their jobs.
The Canadian dollar weakened against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as rising U.S.-China tensions weighed on investor sentiment and domestic data showed a record decline in retail sales, with the loonie giving back some of the week's rally. "Risk sentiment – expressed via equity gains or losses – remains the key driving force behind the CAD," strategists at Scotiabank, including Shaun Osborne, said in a note. "While the CAD is trading closely with equity market sentiment, the rebound in crude oil prices and improvement in relative terms of trade warrant attention," the strategists said.
