Hot Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now

General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) stock posted a dip of about 0.9% last week, not much, but not good enough to shake the company’s ranking as the worst performing Dow Jones industrial average stock for the year to date.

GE shares have lost nearly 17% of their value in 2018 and have fallen nearly 52% during the past 12 months. The second-worst Dow stock so far this year is Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG) down 11.8%. That is followed by Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX), down about 10%; Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ), down 8.8%; and Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) down 7.3%.

The Dow added about 90 points over the course of the last week and closed the week at 25,309.99, a gain of about 0.3%.

Last week’s “big” news from GE came Wednesday when the company’s chief financial officer, Jamie Miller, told a Barclays conference that GE had no intention of selling its stake in Baker Hughes, a GE Company (NYSE: BHGE) anytime soon. That’s good because GE agreed to certain restrictions on selling the oilfield services company when it acquired it in 2016. The restrictions are in force until 2019.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: FB, AAPL, TSLA
    Shares of Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) are under pressure after another government took action on the social media giant’s data policies. German regulators announced yesterday that they would limit the company’s ability to collect and combine consumer data and target advertising across all of its services. This ruling could make it far more difficult for the firm if it integrates the messaging platforms of Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp. Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) are in focus after news broke that it shifted its modem chip engineering team from its supply chain to its internal hardware group. Reuters suggests that it is aiming to develop modem chips in-house after years of buying them from companies like Qualcomm Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM) and Intel Corp. (NASDAQ: INTC). Such a change could bolster company profits in a big way in the future. Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald argues that Apple stock is a bargain right now. It’s just one of several that tap into the unstoppable investment trends that can make you very rich. Learn more right here. On Monday (Feb. 4), Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) announced it was acquiring Maxwell Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: MXWL), a battery and ultra-capacitor company.

This is a much different move… On Friday, look for earnings reports from Arconic Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNC), Exelon Corp. (NYSE: EXC), Hasbro Inc.

    Hubspot (NYSE: HUBS) — A software-as-a-service provider that is pioneering the shift toward “inbound” marketing. HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider of Taser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-led payroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE) — The company’s push to the cloud is driving double-digit gains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — A software-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in several niche markets.  BlackLine (NASDAQ: BL) — A software company that is attempting to bring the accounting process into the 21st century. 

    All seven of these businesses are poised to deliver double-digit organic revenue and profit growth over the next five years. That’s a prospect I find quite enticing, and I think the odds are very favorable that they’ll outperform Apple as a group from here.

    The Dow was flat this morning as major banks report earnings. Shares of JPMorgan Chase added nearly 1% after the company reported a record Q2 profit. The company also reported stronger results from its trading division, which likely benefited from recent market volatility. Its earnings per share of $2.29 was $0.07 above the average estimate of $2.22. China’s trade surplus against the United States hit a new record in June. Many economists are concerned that this news could cause U.S. President Donald Trump to escalate his tariff battle with China. Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to hit another $200 billion in Chinese goods with a 10% tariff. Trump has demanded that China cut down on its surplus.

However, finding evidence of this type of leadership swap in history is far from obvious.

The FAANG terminology, while catchy, is too narrow for this particular exercise. The Nasdaq Composite index, in which these five stocks represent 26 percent, and technology or internet names account for roughly 60 percent of the market value, has been the strongest of the major US indices over the past several years.

For the purpose of this exercise, the Dow Jones Industrial average, with its broad diversity across major industry sectors, including such names as Caterpillar, Walmart, Boeing, United Technologies, Pfizer, Disney, and Nike, is a proxy for the Blue Chips.

    ANSYS (NASDAQ:ANSS) was downgraded by equities researchers at BidaskClub from a “strong-buy” rating to a “buy” rating in a report released on Monday.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Ansys (NASDAQ:ANSS) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “ANSYS delivered strong results for first-quarter 2018, wherein both the top and bottom lines fared better than the respective Zacks Consensus Estimates. Increasing demand for simulation particularly from industries like energy bodes well for ANSYS. We believe that robust product portfolio, expanding total addressable market improving enterprise penetration, collaborations with leading vendors, and strong balance sheet are the catalysts. Acquisitions like 3DSIM and OPTIS are not only enabling ANSYS to bring innovative solutions to the market but are also aiding it to enhance foothold in the competitive simulations market. However, its margin is expected to remain under pressure as ANSYS continues to invest on product development. Furthermore, adverse foreign currency exchange rates are expected to impede revenue growth in the near term as it generates significant revenues from international market.”

    Social media and tech stocks remain front and center as Facebook (FB) CEO Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees this afternoon.

  • [By ]

    Facebook Inc. (FB) continues to open up the spending spigots, and investors don’t seem to mind.

    Shares have been soaring after the social network soundly beat earnings and revenue expectations after the close on Wednesday. Capital expenditures in the first quarter amounted to $2.8 billion and full year expenses in 2018 are estimated to be around $15 billion, CFO David Wehner said during the earnings call Wednesday.

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    As earnings season continues, a host of big tech companies are about to report earnings, including Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft, and Apple. But Facebook will be one of the most interesting earnings reports to watch. Not only is it among the most valuable companies in the world, but it’s growing at an extraordinary pace. In Facebook’s fourth quarter, revenue and earnings per share jumped 47% and 83% year over year when adjusted to exclude the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    7. Facebook (NASDAQ:FB): $472.9 billion market cap, down 14.2%.

    The social-networking leader experienced the largest stock gain among the top 10 this past week, soaring 11.2% after the company came through with a better-than-expected quarter. Beating revenue and profit goals is certainly healthy news, but the real gem is that active user numbers are growing sequentially again. Facebook’s daily and monthly active users increased 9% on a year-over-year basis, and there was also improvement from the third quarter’s showing. Other successes included topping 500 million daily active users for Instagram Stories and more than 90 million small businesses using its products.

    U.S. President Donald Trump is facing criticism after threatening to ramp up taxes on Harley-Davidson Inc. (NYSE: HOG).

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Box was an early mover in the content and file management space in enterprise markets. In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,  Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.
