Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Orbital ATK, Inc.(OA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Smith]

    For the past three years, space company Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) has been working with the U.S. Air Force to develop a new heavy launch rocket. As USAF envisions it, Orbital’s new rocket would work alongside existing Delta IV Heavies (operated by Boeing and Lockheed Martin joint venture United Launch Alliance) and soon, the Falcon Heavy rockets that SpaceX began launching in February, giving the Air Force the option of choosing among three competing launch systems for the best combination of price and reliability.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

In what’s becoming a quarterly event, salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM) reported yet another earnings beat. The cloud-based, customer-relationship-management provider beat on the bottom line by reporting $0.52 in adjusted earnings per share, a figure 13% higher than analyst estimates of $0.46. Salesforce also reported a top-line beat, as revenue of $3.01 billion topped analyst expectations by $70 million.

If you follow Salesforce on any level, another quarter of better-than-expected performance is quickly becoming a misnomer, because it is now expected. In fact, Salesforce has beaten revenue-growth expectations for 12 consecutive quarters, a three-year streak. However, that’s not the most impressive part of Salesforce’s three-year run.

Salesforce isn’t slowing down, it’s speeding up

More interesting than beating estimates from Wall Street analysts is the fact Salesforce continues to grow at an increasing clip. Last quarter’s revenue growth rate of 26% was 3.2 percentage points higher than in 2015’s corresponding quarter. However, the company’s revenue has doubled since then. This isn’t a one-off quarter: As the chart below shows, Salesforce has grown revenue more than 20% every quarter during this period.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc.(BONT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last week, bankrupt department store operator Bon-Ton Stores (NASDAQ:BONT) made one last desperate bid to survive. A group led by mall owners Namdar Realty Group and Washington Prime Group (NYSE:WPG) signed a letter of intent to buy the company out of bankruptcy and continue operating at least some of its stores.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Not long ago, liquidation seemed inevitable for bankrupt department store operator Bon-Ton Stores Inc. (NASDAQ:BONT). The company’s desperate attempt to restructure outside the bankruptcy process failed earlier this year when it couldn’t find an investor willing to finance a comeback effort.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    In 2018, TJX will benefit from a lower tax rate and easier year-over-year comparisons. It is also likely to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Bon-Ton Stores’ (NASDAQ:BONT) pending liquidation. This could send TJX stock to new heights later this year.

    However, the outlook for J.C. Penney stock could be improving as competition in the department store sector starts to wane. Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD) recently revealed another round of store closures. Furthermore, Bon-Ton (NASDAQ:BONT) announced this week that it will liquidate after its attempt to emerge from bankruptcy as a going concern failed.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now

Monday was a mixed day on Wall Street, as gains for major benchmarks contrasted with a decline in indexes tracking smaller companies. Many market participants focused on the White House’s support of Chinese mobile device maker ZTE, which lifted several of the biggest stocks of Chinese technology giants that trade on U.S. exchanges. In general, investors seem to be pleased with the health of the global economy, and absent reasons to the contrary, the path of least resistance appears to be a bounce from the recent correction. Some individual companies received especially good news that lifted shares today. Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR), NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI), and Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Caesars gets some help from the Supreme Court

Shares of Caesars Entertainment rose 5% in the wake of good news for the casino industry from the U.S. Supreme Court. The nation’s highest court ruled that a more than 25-year-old federal law that had prevented nearly every state other than Nevada from allowing sports-related betting was unconstitutional, opening the door for Caesars and its peers to begin such operations if state legislatures pass laws allowing sports betting. New Jersey, which was the state seeking to have the law declared unconstitutional, appears ready to move quickly, and Caesars praised the decision. The company said it will need to take time to understand the consequences of the legal win before offering specific strategy, but investors think it’ll be a big win for Caesars to be able to have sports betting throughout its network rather than only in its Nevada locations.

    Many of the best dividend growth stocks give their investors a raise each year. However, some companies take that to another level by handing their investors more money every single quarter.

They openly answered analysts’ questions, which provided investors with an interesting glimpse into what’s ahead.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On the company’sfirst-quarter conference call, the management team of Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE) and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) let investors know they’re working on a transaction to simplify their corporate structure. CEO Kelcy Warren stated that the deal would “most certainly be a structure whereby ETE acquires ETP.” That’s because they’ve “looked at every scenario possible to us,” according to Warren and “don’t see any mathematical scenario that makes any sense other than that one.”

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE: CHL) is the world’s largest mobile company. It has 900 million subscribers, almost three times the U.S. population. The company is owned by the Chinese government.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By The Ticker Tape]

    TD Ameritrade clients appeared to take some profits in multiple names during the period. Oil companies were popular sells with ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP), BP  PLC (ADR) (NYSE: BP), National-Oilwell Varco Inc. (NYSE: NOV), and Transocean LTD (NYSE: RIG) all net sold. Oil prices traded near three-year highs on higher global demand and possible OPEC-led production cuts. COP and BP both traded at multi-year highs, while NOV and RIG reached 52-week highs, enticing clients to take profits in all four names. Alcoa Corp. (NYSE: AA) traded at levels not seen since before the financial crisis following proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum, and was net sold. For the third month in a row, Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) was net sold after CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress regarding the misuse of user data and a beat on earnings.

Top 10 Medical Stocks For 2019: (LGEAF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Coherent’s ELA deposition technology for LTPS backplane isn’t used in OLED TVs, where LG (OTC:LGEAF) uses metal oxide backpanes. There was some worry by analysts whether that technology could migrate to the smartphone panel market which CEO Ambroseo could not dispel entirely, but he argued that it has not been demonstrated suitable for handsets or battery-powered devices at this point.
