12 Most Buzzing Stocks To Buy Now

Inflation is finally showing signs of cooling off. The CPI report for February was in-line with expectations, with the all-items index rising 6% year over year. We also received a positive surprise after the Bureau of Labor Statistics released a better than expected PPI report that shows the producer price index falling 0.1% in February from where it was in January. We also received a negative revision of 0.4% for the PPI data reported in January, now showing that the PPI for the month increased by 0.3% and not 0.7%.

"If They Suddenly Go Zero, It Could Worry The Market"

The economic data at hand and the implosion of SVB have been received by the markets to price in a 25 basis point rate hike at the next FOMC meeting. On March 16 Jeremy Siegel, professor of finance at Wharton, appeared in an interview on CNBC to discuss his view of what the Fed will do, and also what he thinks the Fed should do at the March meeting. Professor Siegel noted that he has been critical of Fed policy since the last 3 quarters and thinks that the situation at Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE:CS) and the implosion of SVB might give the Fed a reality check and redirect their focus from fighting inflation to preventing an economic downturn.

Professor Siegel thinks that the Fed should not raise rates at the March meeting and he also noted that they should not have raised rates in January either. Professor Siegel noted that the Fed should have redirected their focus earlier on preventing a slowdown, instead of combating inflation. According to professor Siegel the Fed should not raise rates. However, he expects a quarter point rate hike at the March meeting, but with a relatively dovish tone. Professor Siegel expects a 25 bps rate hike because if the Fed abruptly stops its hiking cycle "it could worry the market" and so "a more measured way of doing it is 25 (bps) with a pause".

The stock market is increasingly volatile right now, as the ramifications of SVB have spelled trouble for the global banking industry and inflation remains hot. In times like these, it can become difficult for investors to find opportunities in the market. One thing investors can do is look at stocks that are buzzing and experiencing high trading volumes, since these stocks are attracting investor interest. Some of the most popular stocks among elite money managers that are creating a lot of buzz on Wall Street right now include Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD), Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC), and Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA). Let's look at these stocks, among others, in detail below.

Capital expenditure (capex) in the 2017 to 2019 period was $10 billion – $17 billion per year before ramping up to $40 billion in 2020, $61 billion in 2021 and is expected to end 2022 at another $61 billion.
