Best Growth Stocks To Invest In 2019

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) got an early start in smart speakers with its Echo devices, but Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) subsidiary Google is catching up quickly.

Last year, Amazon took the lion’s share of the market with Google a distant second in terms of sales.But during the first quarter this year, the sales between the two companies are much closer, with at least one research group indicating Google may have sold more devices than Amazon.

Google sold 3.2 million Home devices in the first quarter, according to Canalys, more than the 2.5 million it estimates for Amazon. That varies drastically from Strategy Analytics’ numbers, which show Amazon selling 4 million units versus 2.4 million for Google. What’s evident from both research groups, though, is that Google’s sales growth is far outpacing the overall market despite increased competition.

Best Growth Stocks To Invest In 2019: Nordstrom Inc.(JWN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) is scheduled to release its most recent quarterly results after the markets close on Thursday. The consensus estimates call for $0.44 in earnings per share (EPS) on $3.46 billion in revenue. The fiscal first quarter of last year reportedly had EPS of $0.37 and $3.35 billion in revenue.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Nordstrom outperformed the industry in the last six months driven by the smooth execution of customer strategy and disciplined inventory management. The company has an impressive surprise history with earnings beat delivered in seven of the last eight quarters and topping sales estimates in three of the trailing four quarters. Results in first-quarter fiscal 2018 gained from the shift in Nordstrom’s loyalty event to the quarter compared with the second quarter in the prior year. Management raised the low-end of its EBIT and earnings views for fiscal 2018. Also, its focus on store expansion and strengthening capabilities through further investments, particularly in digital growth, remains noteworthy. However, investments toward occupancy, technology, supply chain and marketing are weighing on its margin performance for the last few quarters. Higher expenses have been resulting in higher SG&A expense, which is hurting profitability.”
