Chewy on This Trade

June 20th, 2021

Chewy (CHWY), the online pet food and supply retailer, reported impressive earnings last week that beat estimates on profits and revenue. Adding to the good news, CHWY raised its full-year 2021 revenue guidance, although it lowered Q2 guidance due to short-term supply chain issues.  The stock started 2021 on a solid note, gaining more than […]

It’s Hip to Bet on Square (SQ)

Foot Locker (FL) is Running Higher

May 26th, 2021

Pandemic? What pandemic? FL, the ultimate in a brick-and-mortar, mall-based store, has been a monster performer this year. The stock is up a gawdy 50% and has more than doubled since last August. The company reported stellar earnings on Friday before the bell that easily topped expectations. Earnings came in at $1.93 per share compared […]

Electronic Arts (EA) Post-Earnings Slump is an Opportunity

May 17th, 2021

On Tuesday after the bell, EA stepped into the earnings confessional. Results on the top and bottom lines lagged analyst expectations, but bookings came in higher than company estimates.

Caterpillar (CAT) Drops After an Earnings Beat … And It’s a Bullish Sign

May 3rd, 2021

On Thursday, CAT did something it’s done for the past three quarters – it easily topped earnings estimates. The company reported $2.87 in adjusted earnings versus the projected $1.95. Sales ($11.9 billion) also soared past estimates ($10.5 billion). The numbers were well received by Wall Street, as a couple of brokerages raised their target prices.

Cruising for Profits with Carnival (CCL)

April 19th, 2021

Few industries were hit as hard during the pandemic as cruise lines. But, after bottoming out more than a year ago, CCL has more than tripled in value. And although its latest earnings report showed the company absorbing a loss, booking volumes were 90% higher than the previous quarter.

Gaga for Google … er, Alphabet (GOOGL)

April 12th, 2021

After popping 7% following its last earnings report in early February, GOOGL traded sideways through the end of March. April has been another story, however, as the stock has gained 10% in just six trading days to hit an all-time high. Over the longer term, GOOGL has been a beast, having more than doubled off the March 2020 low. And why not, given its dominant position in the search and online advertising space.
