Don’t DIS This Trade

August 15th, 2021

Walt Disney (DIS) reported solid earnings results after the bell on Thursday that beat analyst expectations on the top and bottom lines. Perhaps as important, subscriber growth to the Disney+ streaming service also beat estimates. And revenue from the company’s parks swung to a profit. Analysts greeted the news with ratings reiterations mixed with a […]

Book a Marriott (MAR) Trade

August 8th, 2021

Marriott (MAR) had mixed earnings results this week, beating on profits but missing on revenue. Given that the company is at the forefront of COVID-affected stocks, year-over-year comparisons are meaningless. But the company noted that leisure travel was picking up, though some bookings are being affected by the Delta variant spread. MAR also noted that […]

Order Up a Starbucks Spread

August 1st, 2021

Starbucks (SBUX) posted a solid earnings report on Tuesday, easily beating both top- and bottom-line expectations. Year-over-year sales and earnings comparisons were ridiculously high, as SBUX was one of the hardest-hit businesses during the depths of last year’s pandemic-rocked economy. But the company grew sales from two years ago and blew out analyst estimates. To […]

As Easy as ABT

July 25th, 2021

Abbott Laboratories (ABT) reported earnings before the bell on Thursday that beat top- and bottom line estimates. Moreover, the medical device, diagnostics and nutrition company beat expectations across all major business segments. While impressive year-over-year comparisons were helped by depressed activity a year ago, sales grew by 11% compared to 2019. Analysts were notably impressed, […]

Clean Up with Cintas (CTAS)

July 18th, 2021

Cintas (CTAS) may not be in an exciting business – the company provides uniforms, cleaning and restroom supplies, first aid supplies and fire extinguishers – but its recent earnings report was anything but boring. The company easily beat profit forecasts and slightly beat sales projections. Even the low end of the company’s projected EPS range […]

Micron Technology (MU) At Double-Barreled Support

Facebook (FB) scored a big win in court this week when a federal judge threw out two complaints – one from the FTC and one from several state attorneys general – that it violated antitrust laws.

Get a Charge Out of Plug Power (PLUG)

June 29th, 2021

PLUG is a hydrogen fuel cell provider based outside of Albany, NY. The company reported earnings on Tuesday (June 22) after a delay due to some accounting issues. While earnings missed the mark, PLUG’s strong current and projected revenue growth is considered more indicative of the company’s potential. The company also has a strong cash […]

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)
