Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now

The automotive industry looks more like the Wild Wild West than ever before. Automakers are developing ridesharing projects, Silicon Valley tech companies are developing driverless technology, and auto dealership groups are developing online selling platforms. Even Avis Budget Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CAR) has to be commended for its forward-thinking strategy acquiring Zipcar and inking partnerships with the likes of Alphabet’s Waymo, its autonomous car development company. Avis’ recent move is a smart decision, but General Motors (NYSE:GM) might end up crashing the party.

Deal inked with Toyota

Avis recently announced a multi-year deal with Toyota (NYSE:TM) that will add 10,000 vehicles to Avis’ fleet of connected vehicles. The benefit for Avis is using Toyota’s vehicles to improve informatics, fleet management, and operational efficiency. In other words, as Avis transitions from its historical rental business to an information and fleet management as a service (FMaaS) business, more information from partners like Toyota’s proprietary Mobility Services Platform (MSPF) will be critical to figuring out how to develop a lucrative business model.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Nexstar Media Group (NASDAQ:NXST) had its price target cut by B. Riley to $87.00. They currently have a buy rating on the stock.

    Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Ralph Lauren outperformed the industry in the past six months backed by robust bottom-line performance in recent quarters. Notably, third-quarter fiscal 2018 marked the company’s 12th consecutive earnings beat while sales lagged estimates after a beat in the previous quarter. Additionally, the company’s Way Forward Plan is on track, and it remains keen on bolstering digital and international presence. Also, the company has been gaining from favorable geographic and channel mix shifts along with lower promotions and reduced product costs. Further, management adjusted fiscal 2018 outlook to account for the positive currency rates, which are likely to aid revenues and operating margins. However, its North America business continues to suffer due to distribution and brand exits, planned reduction in shipments and promotions to enhance the quality of sales, and lower customer demand.”
