Exxon reported a profit of 95 cents a share, beating forecasts for 88 cents, on sales of $63.3 billion, missing forecasts for $66.4 billion.

In a note released before the open this morning, Wells Fargo’s called the result “neutral” for the stock. He explains why:

Versus our expectations, XOM beat on better downstream performance, as chemicals fell short of expectations and upstream net income was in line with our estimates. Capex was meaningfully below expectations and run rate for FY2017 guidance. Cash flow from operations was slightly below our expectations, but net cash flow after capex and dividends exceeded $2.0 billion.

    In its latest research report, eMarketer states that the search giant will maintain its dominance in digital ads taking in40.7% of US digital ad revenues in 2017more than double of what Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) would make. TheeMarketer research “expects Googles share of the search market to grow 16.1% to $28.55 billion in 2017. The search giant will claim roughly 78% of total US search ad revenues this year”.eMarketer forecasting analyst Monica Peart states that Google is set to benefit greatly from users’ behavioral shift to mobile search on increasing usage of smartphones. An important point to note here is that the ongoing ad fiasco is largely related toGoogle’s Display Network, where Google lags Facebook by some distance, but in that too eMarketer projectsDisplay Network revenue will rise to $5.24 billion in 2017. The above-cited research had just come recently before the YouTube ad exodus. However, as highlighted by the Morgan Stanley analyst above, the impact on the Google’s bottom line due to current ad woes could be minimal and the above estimates may not vary in a drastic way.

The team includes engineers who have worked on Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FB) Oculus Rift and Microsoft’s HoloLens. Some special effects artists from the movie industry are supposedly even in the mix.

 Nothing makes me happier than proving Porter wrong…
 
Back in September, Porter and I (Bryan Beach) took the stage at our annual Alliance Meeting in Las Vegas.
 
I was about to share a list of seven troubled businesses. But I wasn't going to recommend shorting or even avoiding them. Instead, I was going to tell the audience that these stocks would dramatically beat the market in the coming years.
 
Porter heckled me in front of the entire audience. And for good reason… these were terrible companies I would typically never recommend to anyone.
 
So why would I make an exception this time… in front of hundreds of our most loyal subscribers, no less?

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    This week, Botox maker Allergan plc (NYSE:AGN) shelled out $2.5 billion for body-sculpting outfit Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc (NASDAQ:ZLTQ). The pairing is a nice opportunity for both organizations to cross-sell to one another’s customers. Allergan’s Botox customers seeking a more youthful face will also likely want the better body Zeltiq Aesthetics provides, and Zeltiq Aesthetics’ customers are natural candidates for Botox injections that Allergan facilitates.

    The acquisition, though, is just a microcosm of a bigger trend that’s still picking up steam. That trend is, as the industry’s capabilities to restore youth, slim waists, whiten teeth, improve skin, and nip and tuck here and there improve with science, demand for these increasingly effective ‘tweaks’ is soaring. Names like the aforementioned Allergan, Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ:CYNO), Zeltiq Aesthetics and Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALGN) are all driving impressive growth. And, they’re all looking to expand their footprint in front of the rising tide.

    Not every name riding this growth wave is going to be a large cap stock or a household name though. There’s a small cap stock called RepliCel Life Sciences (OTCMKTS:REPCF, CVE:RP) that could soon be turning a lot of heads not just of investors, but of potential suitors.

    In simplest terms, RepliCel Life Sciences has two key sciences that serve as the foundation for three therapies and one medical device.

    The first of the two biological premises is based on the company’s non-bulbar dermal sheath fibroblast platform, and currently includes treatments for chronic tendinosis and skin aging. The second is the company’s dermal sheath cup (DSC) cell platform for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness).

    The three marketable products those two sciences are driving are RCT-01 for tendon repair, RCS-01 for skin rejuvenation, and RCH-01 for hair regeneration. The device is a dermal injector – currently categorized as R
