    The stock market finished the week on a quiet note, with most major benchmarks closing slightly lower on the day. Investors went into the weekend trying to navigate a series of geopolitical and macroeconomic issues, but many market participants focused on the big plunge in the oil market, where crude prices dropped $3 per barrel to fall below the $68-per-barrel mark. Even with trading activity slow preceding the holiday weekend, good news sent shares of some companies higher. Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU), Shoe Carnival (NASDAQ:SCVL), and Quality Systems (NASDAQ:QSII) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks For 2019: Kronos Worldwide Inc(KRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) plunged on Wednesday after the company announced first-quarter 2018 results. The titanium dioxide manufacturer reported strong growth compared to the year-ago period thanks to the continued surge in selling prices. Revenue was up 16% and net income nearly doubled relative to the first quarter of 2017. How can Wall Street be displeased with that? 

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Despite continued strength globally for the material, many titanium dioxide producers have seen their share prices drop by double digits since the beginning of the year. For instance, Kronos Worldwide (NYSE:KRO) stock has dropped by 19% in 2018 even though the business is cruising along right now. That has pushed its dividend yield to 3.4% — much higher than most peers.

  • [By Timothy Green, Travis Hoium, and Maxx Chatsko]
