Hot Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now

When Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) released its third-quarter earnings results, it announced plans to lay off 9% of its workforce. The move was part of an effort to become profitable in 2017. Twitter lost $103 million in the third quarter and $290 million through the first nine months of the year.

But Twitter’s workforce isn’t the only thing slimming down. Twitter is also laying off some of its underperforming products. The most recent is Fabric, Twitter’s software development kit for mobile apps. Google — the Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) subsidiary — is buying the business for an undisclosed amount. Twitter also shuttered Vine earlier this month as it focuses more on its core platform to generate a profit.

Twitter is having a fire sale

Rumors swirled for weeks last autumn ahead of Twitter’s third-quarter earnings that Twitter was trying to sell itself. After failing to find a buyer, Twitter is faced with the reality that it needs to show it can become profitable in order to either attract better takeout offers or attract more interest on Wall Street.

Hot Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now: Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc.(STAF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    You may have to read between the lines, but the clues are there. Like a recent article written for CIO Magazine explains, “approximately 32 percent of IT organizations are willing to offer a 10 percent to 15 percent salary increase to currently employed IT professionals in an effort to attract elite talent.” And in September, shares of TeamLease Services surged on reports that it had acquired a Bangalore-based IT staffing firm. In October, North Carolina-based BlueLine Associates acquired the technology arm of staffing firm BlueStaff just to get deeper into the IT staffing industry.

    They’re all microcosms of the same idea… information technology staffing is a huge growth opportunity as the world becomes increasingly digital, and the companies in the industry are in a very sweet spot. If they’ aren’t buyout targets, they’re at least well-positioned for big-time growth.

    On the other hand, just because an investor spots a trend/opportunity doesn’t mean it’s easy to invest in. How does one make an “IT staffing trade?”

    As it turns out, such a trade isn’t quite as out of reach as it may seem. Staffing 360 Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:STAF) is an easy, simple and great way to plug into the trend.

    Staffing 360 Solutions isn’t a well-known name…. yet. The company as it it is today has only been around for a couple of years now, and it’s only been listed on the NASDAQ exchange for roughly a year. It takes time for a young company to be seasoned and established. But, what a company the market will find once the masses start realizing what STAFis, and what it’s doing.

    The definition of a roll-up isn’t one set in stone, though the broad brush strokes paint a clear enough picture. Investopedia describes a roll-up as a merger that occurs when investors – often private equity firms – buy up companies in the same market and meld them together, squeezing some synergies out in the process. Roll-ups combine multiple small companies into some

    It’s almost time for the annual Staffing 360 Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:STAF) shareholder pow-wow. That is to say, the company’s annual shareholder meeting is scheduled for January 26th of the coming year, in New York City. Though nothing too dramatic is on the voting docket, a handful of items will be decided on by STAF owners.

    Staffing 360 Solutions is a fast-growing staffing firm. Its focal point is IT staffing. This small company is smartly and cost-effectively acquiring its way into a size and scale by converting a fragmented and less-effective and less profitable group of similar staffing agencies into a cohesive, more profitable singular unit.

    It’s paying off too – the proof has been in the rising revenue tally over the course of the past couple of years… a rise that’s been outpaced by the broad improvement of EBITDA and income (which is the point of a scale-up).

    The specific numbers: . All told, Staffing 360 Solutions generated $47.8 million worth of revenue last quarter, turned $8.5 million of it into a gross profit, and turned $1.8 million of that into an EBITDA profit. Those were, respectively, improvements of 33%, 34%, and 184% compared to the same quarter a year earlier. Net income improved too. The net loss of $1.3 million was 27% smaller than the net loss of $1.7 million booked in Q1 of fiscal 2016. Profitability – real profitability – is within reach. STAF simply has to stay on the trajectory it’s on. A couple more acquisitions and a little more organic growth could do the trick.

    Late next month, shareholders will have a chance to voice their thoughts on where the company should be going… metaphorically and literally. One of the matter being put to a vote is a change of domicile, from Nevada to Delaware; Delaware generally offers a more business-friendly set of operating and tax rules. Another more important matter to be voted on at the meeting is the authorization of more STAF shares, which have been used in lie

    We week ago, IT staffing agency Staffing 360 Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:STAF) announced some very impressive preliminary second quarter numbers. Revenue of $47 million was up 14% year-over-year, while gross profits of $8.1 million grew 8% compared to year-ago levels. In both cases, the growth extended a long-term trend.

    As impressive as the forward progress for STAF was, though, it still wasn’t the whole story, nor were they the official numbers for the quarter in question. Per this weekend’s press release, Staffing 360 Solutions will give us the official version of the rest of the story on Wednesday of this week — the 11th — in the morning, shortly before a conference call slated for 9:00 am that morning. That announcement will add net income, EBITDA and operational cash flow numbers to the information shared last week, and should extend growth trends on those measures as well.

    Staffing 360 Solutions is putting together bigger IT staffing firm at the ideal time. A recent report from technology research outfit IDC, determined that by the end of 2017, two-thirds of the CEOs of Global 2000 companies will have digital transformation at the center of their corporate strategies. How are they going to make that happen? Deloitte recently posted some research of its own that should shed some light on the idea. The giant accounting form observed that “In order to maintain the competitive pace of innovation, companies find themselves engaged in a global war for talent.”

    That’s a trend also observed by the Department of Labor, which in its 2014-2024 occupational outlook handbook noted: “Employment of computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 12 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. These occupations are expected to add about 488,500 new jobs, from about 3.9 million jobs to about 4.4 million jobs from 2014 to 2024, in part due to a greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and

    The staffing industry – and the IT staffing industry in particular – is poised for tremendous growth in the foreseeable future, and that rising tide bodes very well for Staffing 360 Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:STAF).

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Staffing 360 Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:STAF) is on a roll. Just a couple of days after it pre-announced some impressive preliminary results for the most recently-completed quarter, the IT staffing agency told STAF shareholders today that $2.7 million worth of debt had essentially been refinanced. Now, no interest payments are due until October of this year, and no principal is due until October of next year. That may well be enough time for Staffing 360 Solutions to acquire more companies, beef up the top and bottom line, and pay the whole amount off before another refinancing or conversion to shares.

    Staffing 360 Solutions’ story is a compelling one. Seeing the growing need for information technology workers in an increasingly digital and increasingly networked world — and a severe lack of those qualified workers — three years ago the company began to capitalize on the supply/demand imbalance. Its mission was to aggregate, or “roll up” several smaller IT staffing companies into one big one, create some synergies and thus widen margins, and develop enough muscle to become THE dominant name in the niche.

    It’s working too. On Tuesday of this week, the company pre-announced its fiscal first quarter (ending in November) sales and gross profits. Revenue of $47 million and a gross profit of $8.1 million were up 14% and 8%, respectively, year-over-year, extending a long-term growth trend.

    What we haven’t heard yet — and won’t until the official Q1 filing is submitted later this month — is the company’s net income and EBITDA figures for the quarter. But, those numbers are improving too. EBITDA has been positive in each of the five prior quarters, and is expected to continue growing through last quarter. Net income is within sight of turning positive too. And, with its debt-interest payments now going away for at least nine months, net income will move towards turning positive at an even faster rate… through lower expenses, as well as greater fin

    CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE: CTL) posted a new 52-week low of $21.62 on Thursday, down about 8.9% from Wednesday’s closing price of $23.74. The stock’s 52-week high is $33.45. Volume totaled around 20 million shares, double the daily average of around 10 million. The telecom firm missed expectations this morning and lowered guidance — a potent one-two punch to the stock price.

    The stock posting the largest daily percentage gain in the S&P 500 ahead of the close Wednesday was CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) which rose over 6% to $16.75. The stocks 52-week range is $13.16 to $27.61. Volume was 20 million compared to its average volume of 15 million.

Volume of around 14 million was less than 10% above the daily average. The telecom company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.54 per share payable next month. The dividend yield on the stock is now over 14%, a level that always makes investors nervous. Shares are on track to close the day up nearly 3% on the dividend announcement.

    Very strong results across the board for Dycom, with spending from its top customers only further accelerating. We’re not surprised that FQ3 guidance came in slightly ahead of expectations, as many investors had viewed their initial guidance as conservative. We are encouraged to see organic growth re-accelerating in FQ4 to the mid-teens, with its acquired Goodman asset contributing $15MM of expected revenue (up from $13.4MM in FQ2). Dycom also procured new customer awards in the quarter from AT&T (T), Comcast (CMCSA), CenturyLink (CTL) and Windstream Holdings (WIN) to support further growth. Dycom also repurchased $25MM of shares during FQ2 and authorized an additional $75MM over the next 18 months, giving Dycom $150MM of incremental repurchase authorization through August 2018

Lockheed Martin stock (NYSE: LMT) is surging over 6% today (Tuesday) intraday. And this confirms the bullish outlook we’ve maintained on the Lockheed Martin stock price.

Lockheed Martin stock’s share bump is from its stellar third-quarter earnings report, which it posted today.

Lockheed’s net sales for the quarter grew to $2.4 billion, up from $865 million from Q3 2015. The defense giant also posted adjusted earnings per share of $3.61, which smashed analysts’ consensus estimate of $2.89 per share, according to FactSet.

Another reason LMT is rising today: The company boosted its quarterly dividend 10% to $1.82 per share. It also increased share repurchases to $2 billion.

Looking forward, Lockheed raised its guidance for the end of 2016. It now expects earnings of $12.10 per share with revenue of $46.5 billion. Those numbers are $0.95 per share and $1.5 billion higher than its previous guidance estimate, respectively.

best stocks to purchase today: (SMPQY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    The majority owner is Sun Pharma (OTC:SMPQY) (the largest drug business in India). There have been a number of articles that have outlined Sun Pharma and its quest for Taro, but it makes a lot of sense for Sun to want to own all – and not just the majority – of Taro. One big reason is that owning all of Taro means that any investments that Sun makes with Taros $1.2 billion cash hoard will not be diluted by the presence of minority shareholders. Another reason that Sun likely wants Taro is simply because it is very cheap right now. Sun is run by its founder and majority shareholder, Dilip Shanghvi, who is sort of a pharmaceutical value investor who has opportunistically made acquisitions and investments over time, building his firm starting with a loan of $200 in the early 1980s to the multi-billion business it is today.

Claiming a stock will deliver a double-digit return every year is a bold statement. After all, the “Siegel constant,” named after Wharton Professor Jeremy Siegel, says the stock market as a whole delivers total returns of around 7% per year after inflation. So, a stock that delivered a double-digit return every year would be one that consistently beat the market.
