Earnings Momentum in Industry Leaders Should Bode Well for Shareholders

With a large number of companies reporting this week, hundreds of firms have been updating their shareholders. A lot of attention has gone into mega-cap names, particularly in the tech space. But any company in any sector that’s a leader and showing earnings growth right now could be an attractive investment. That’s doubly true for any company that’s been growing over the past few quarters and has gotten some momentum going. One such non-tech name is McDonald’s (MCD). The company beat second ...

Investors are looking for guidance right now, and many companies simply aren’t delivering. That’s a lingering effect of the pandemic that will eventually go away. Until then, even a company that reports great earnings for the prior quarter can see their shares sell off as traders look forward. That’s been the case just this week with major companies reporting such as Microsoft (MSFT) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). Both companies saw an immediate drop in share price when they reported earnings ...

Market Fears Point to Potential Buying Opportunity

The past few months have been brutal for cryptocurrencies, which went from a total market cap over $2 trillion to shedding over half its market value in just a few weeks. One culprit? China, which banned cryptocurrency mining. While the global mining network is reestablishing itself in friendlier jurisdictions, there’s rising concern over how long that will take and if the market will be flooded with used mining equipment. Such equipment is usually in the form of high-end graphics cards, which could ...

This Hated Stock Has Massive Rebound Potential

A number of smaller tech companies exploded at the start of the year on the back of retail interest. Some of that speculation quickly died out. Even with markets still near all-time highs, these smaller players, which likely have better long-term growth potential, remain out of favor.

With the economy reopening, however, more options are available to consumers, who want to get out of the house. That creates a challenge for streaming companies to keep their subscribers. For instance, in its latest earnings on Tuesday, Netflix (NFLX) reported lighter-than-expected subscriber growth, the key metric for streaming companies. However, Netflix is already working to develop gaming. While some feared this ...

Is Big Blue Finally a Buy?

What’s old can often be new again in tech. Case in point? International Business Machines (IBM). The tech giant is starting to show some signs of life as it pivots away from computer mainframes and more towards software and services. That allowed the company to see a 3 percent rise in revenue compared to a year ago. Compared to its history of losses over the past few years, it looks like a start in the right direction. However, despite those solid headline ...
