Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: Square, Inc.(SQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    This will also put PayPal on a collision course with Square Inc. (NYSE:SQ), the incumbent payment system used by many small businesses.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    Consider one of my favorite stocks in the market, Square (NYSE:SQ), which hit an all-time high of more than $100 just a couple of weeks ago. After the recent market drop, Square is trading for about $78 as I write this, so I might consider buying more soon. (Note: I can’t buy any stocks I mention for a few days.)

  • [By Trey Thoelcke]

    Square Inc. (NASDAQ: SQ) is expected to have 54.8% EPS growth in the next five years, a jump from less than 9% in the past five years. This payment solutions company has one of the highest growth rates out there, and some now lump it in with the FANG stocks. But shares are only around 10% higher year to date, less than the Nasdaq. Its next earnings report is expected later this month.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Square’s (NYSE:SQ) Cash App is wildly popular, but isn’t really making any money — yet. In a recent interview, CFO Sarah Friar discussed Square’s long-term banking ambitions. To put it mildly, any banking, brokerage, or lending traction the company gains with its millions of Cash App users could be a big profit driver in the future.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    However, they shouldn’t ignore three other high-growth companies that are changing how companies do business over the internet: Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), Square (NYSE:SQ), and GrubHub (NYSE:GRUB). All three stocks have generated multibagger returns over the past three years, and they could soar even higher on some long-term tailwinds.

  • [By ]

    If you have a long-term investing mentality like this, here’s why you should take a closer look at Realty Income (NYSE:O), Square (NYSE:SQ), and HCP (NYSE:HCP). I own all three stocks — not because I expect them to make me rich tomorrow, but because they have some serious growth potential over the next few decades.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

The January jobs report showed more than 100,000 jobs were created last month than economists expected. Beats of that magnitude usually spark a lot of optimism about the economy, driving stocks higher over the subsequent days and months and benefiting energy, industrial and banking stocks the most, history shows.

CNBC analysis using the Kensho tool looked at all the times in the last 20 years when the jobs report exceeded estimates by 100,000 or more and what happens to stocks and certain sectors the day of the report, as well as one week and three months later.

Day of:
S&P 500 jumps 0.6 percent on averageBest stocks: Industrials (+1.1 percent avg. gain), Energy (+0.9 percent), Technology (+0.8 percent) One week later:
S&P 500 adds 0.6 percent on averageBest stocks: Industrials (+1.5 percent avg. gain), Energy (+1.2 percent), Technology (+0.9 percent) Three months later:
S&P 500 adds 1.8 percentBest stocks: Energy (+6.9 percent) Materials (+4.2 percent avg. gain), Industrials (+3.4 percent), Financials (+3.2 percent)

This historical data via Kensho fits with the fundamental case. A much stronger-than-expected jobs report signals the economy is doing better than we thought, so investors pile into economically sensitive stocks like energy and industrial shares. Bank stocks do well as yields jump, as they were on Friday.

The tide may be turning even sooner than I'd hoped…
 
It looks like investors have pushed growth stocks to historically high valuations relative to value stocks. Analysts at JPMorgan Chase say the spread between forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios has "become stretched."

I used a similar approach to identify five stocks with fast-growing dividends: Boeing (NYSE:BA), Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN), CVS Health (NYSE:CVS), Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN), and AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV). Here’s why these stocks could be great picks for dividend-seeking investors.

    Liquidity Service (LQDT) is an online auction marketplace for surplus and salvage assets. This stock closed up 14.9% at $34.44 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 1.60 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 402,622

    Volume % Change: 336%

    From a technical perspective, LQDT skyrocketed higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $30.94 with strong upside volume. This move briefly saw shares of LQDT trend back above its 200-day moving average at $34.60, before it closed just below that level at $34.44. Shares of LQDT are now quickly moving within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if LQDT manages to take out Monday’s intraday high of $35.21 and then once it clears some more near-term overhead resistance at $35.71 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LQDT as long as it’s trending above $32.67 or above $31.60 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 402,622 shares. If we get that breakout soon, then LQDT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $38 to $40.90.

    Staffing agencies like Robert Half International Inc. (NYSE:RHI) and ManpowerGroup Inc. (NYSE:MAN) may want to look over their shoulder. Though both are bigger and more established, their size and the waning need for physical, human workers in an increasingly-digital and roboticized world ultimately works against both organizations. That paradigm shift doesn’t matter much to a young, up-coming-staffing agency called Staffing 360 Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:STAF) though. Indeed, the trend of computer-based everything leaves Staffing 360 Solutions in the proverbial cat-bird’s seat. Its fiscal Q2 numbers verify the company is in the right place at the right time.

    Those numbers? Revenue of $47.1 million was up 14%, and gross profits of $8.1 million were higher by 8.4% on a year-over-year basis. Moreover, the net loss of $1.5 million was a marked improvement on the year-ago loss of $3.5 million, and the EBITDA of $1.4 million was about the same. Operating expenses fell from 22% of revenue a year earlier to only 17% last quarter, with more such progress on the way.

    Perhaps most important, Staffing 360 Solutions saw organic growth of 7%, meaning the top line bumped up by that much not because of acquisitions, but because it’s existing divisions expanded their client base and billings by 7%.

    And last quarter’s progress has been the norm for several quarters now.

    While STAF is proving outpacing the growth from bigger names like ManpowerGroup and Robert Half International, it can’t come as a complete surprise. Staffing 360 Solutions is focused on the IT sliver of the staffing industry, connecting companies with the technology-skilled programmers, cybersecurity specialists, and computer networking personnel modern organizations increasingly need.

    There are several data nuggets that point in the same direction, but perhaps none as telling as a recent conclusion from technology research outfit IDC speaks volumes. IDC believes that by the

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    2. Staffing firms could do well as employees look to other options if their employers won’t raise rates along with the trend. Firms like Robert Half International (NYSE: RHI) and ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) would also benefit from higher wages through the fees the companies collect when they place an employee contract.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018: Taylor & Martin Group Inc (TMG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC as a Buy with a ratings score of A+. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, increase in net income, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

    The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Life Sciences Tools & Services industry average. The net income increased by 0.9% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $471.60 million to $476.10 million.

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC’s earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC increased its bottom line by earning $4.70 versus $3.49 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($7.39 versus $4.70).

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.

    Net operating cash flow has increased to $743.90 million or 10.04% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 0.44%.
