Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

As many investors know, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is having a difficult time with its iPhone business right now. A slowdown in China’s economy, last year’s battery-replacement program, and a decrease in carrier subsidies have all made Apple’s large customer base hesitant to upgrade their phones. The slowdown in iPhone sales is currently causing Apple’s overall revenue and operating income to decline, as iPhones account for more than 60% of the company’s revenue.

However, all of Apple’s non-iPhone businesses grew last quarter. One particular bright spot was the services segment. Investors and analysts tend to like service companies much better than device companies, since services are often distributed as subscriptions, producing the consistent recurring revenue that investors love.

During Apple’s recent earnings call with analysts, management broke out the profitability of the services business for the first time and spent lots of time going through the segment’s impressive statistics. Here are the highlights.

Nevertheless, investors focusing on company-specific news found some reasons to celebrate. Altria Group (NYSE:MO), Galapagos (NASDAQ:GLPG), and Laredo Petroleum (NYSE:LPI) were among the best performers on the day.

    The closing of Sirius XM’s deal for Pandora Media (NYSE:P) — sending arbs off to close out their positions — is probably the biggest reason for the reversal. However, short interest is now even lower than where it was before Sirius XM announced its plan to buy the streaming radio pioneer. Having Pandora now under Sirius XM’s wing is a reason — but not the reason — for more than 100 million net shares covered through the first two weeks of February.

    A possible explanation for the uptick in shorts could be its recently concluded purchase ofPandora (NYSE:P)in an all-stock deal. Arbitragers could’ve bought Pandora and shorted the deal-equivalent number of Sirius XM stocks to lock in the modest discount available to Pandora investors. We’ll find out soon if that was the case. The Pandora dealclosed the day afterSirius XM hit its year-high short position. We’ll get a clearer snapshot of the situation when the exchanges report their mid-month tallies later this month.

    Thursday was another down day for the stock market, with new pressure coming from international moves on the macroeconomic front. The European Central Bank signaled that it was ready to provide more accommodative monetary policy, reversing a previous tightening stance and showing its concerns about the prospects for economic growth in the region. Yet favorable earnings reports continued lifting shares of certain individual companies. Rosetta Stone (NYSE:RST), ArQule (NASDAQ:ARQL), and Fly Leasing (NYSE:FLY) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of ArQule (NASDAQ:ARQL) rose over 70% today after the company reported full-year 2018 operating results and provided full-year 2019 guidance. That said, investors are probably used to wild swings in the stock price by now. The development-stage pharma didn’t turn in a particularly impressive performance last year. Management expects revenue to drop significantly in the year ahead as collaboration revenue dries up, which will also widen operating losses.

    A few years ago, Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) management determined that many of the department store chain’s stores were too big. In many cases, Kohl’s was filling these stores with more inventory than was necessary to meet demand, just so the stores wouldn’t look empty. That excess inventory led to margin-sapping clearance discounts at the end of each season.

    Now, here’s a closer look at today’s Money Morning insight, the most important market events, and stocks to watch.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    Investors are eyeing news that the U.S. deficit with China hit a 10-year high during December. This widening deficit occurred even in the face of U.S. President Donald Trump’s large tariffs on Chinese goods. Trump has been slapping tariffs on China to reduce this deficit. However, Americans continued to buy cheap manufactured goods while the Chinese government has scooped up cheap commodities and raw materials from other nations. Yesterday, shares of Brown-Forman Corp.(NYSE: BF.B), the manufacturer of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, fell 7% after announcing the tariffs were hurting sales. Now, new tensions in the trade deal are emerging as the Chinese tech firm Huawei has sued the U.S. government over a ban to sell its equipment to the United States.
    Before the bell, the European Central Bank planned to announce its latest decision on interest rates and other monetary policy matters. The ECB Bank Chief Mario Draghi hosted a press conference to discuss the bank’s forecast for the European economy. Many analysts project that several key markets – like Germany – have seen a cooldown in economic activity in recent months. The ECB has never raised interest rates during any part of Draghi’s eight-year term. The 2020 election is heating up around one issue – but it’s not the one that you think. In fact, Money Morning Special Situation Strategist Tim Melvin projects that President Trump will do something shocking before the election: legalize cannabis across the United States. Think that’s crazy? Well, you’d be amazed at how easy it would be. You’ll also be shocked by how much money you could make by getting out in front of this trend – check out Tim’s latest insight right here.

Just over 27% of Adobe’s valuation can be attributed to its marketing cloud initiative. According to Adobe’s SEC filings, it generated over $1.63 billion revenues from its marketing cloud initiatives in 2016. (Fiscal year ends with November.)

Operating in a growing market and serving eager customers is always a good thing, but investors can sometimes scare easily, wary of companies that must spend now to earn more later.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks For 2021

First and foremost, I believe that Microsoft will soon become a $1 trillion dollar company. The revenue growth that is required for this to happen will come from the Intelligent Cloud product group, which focuses on allowing users to store information and increase business efficiency using the cloud.

Why Did Microsoft Have the Highest Yearly Revenue Growth in a Decade?

The largest share of (MSFT)’s current revenue is within their personal computing products. This encompasses the Windows OS, Surface hardware, Xbox hardware and marketplace sales, and Bing. For FY 2018, personal computing products resulted in more than $42 billion of revenue. This represents an 8% growth from $39 billion in FY 2017. This growth is significant as it was unexpected, partly due to the fact that the product group saw -2% growth from 2016 to 2017. Interestingly enough, the driver of this growth came from Xbox software which saw a 20% revenue increase over FY 2018 compared to FY 2017. This is a big surprise as the Xbox One has been on the losing end of its war with Sony’s Playstation 4. However, MSFT is proving that Xbox software and services can be a key growth driver. A secondary driver of this revenue was Windows commercial revenue which saw 5% growth due to an increase in the sales of Windows 10 licenses, as Windows is and will continue to be the premier OS for businesses and is widely used by the general public.

Zynga’s results were particularly strong on the mobile side, with mobile advertising revenue and bookings climbing 23% and 20%, respectively — a feat management credited to a combination of higher player engagement in the company’s popular Words With Friends, Merge Dragons!, and CSR2games, as well as ad network improvements and the addition of its new Casual Cards and Gram Games titles.

    There’s more at stake for Huntington Ingalls and fellow shipbuilder General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) beyond the $6.5 billion in lost refueling revenue. A modern aircraft carrier does not sail alone but rather relies on a large number of escorts and affiliated ships that also need to be acquired and staffed. There is also the expense of finding pilots for the large number of planes that are housed on a carrier.

    Monday was an extremely strong day for the stock market, as major indexes finished well above where they started the session. Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.
