This led to a nice jump in revenue and gross profit during the year. Unsurprisingly, the stock rose sharply, too: Shares gained nearly 30% over the past 12 months, handily outperforming the S&P 500’s 3% gain over the same time period.

If the stock’s outperformance over the past 12 months has caught your attention and you’re looking for more insight into what’s driving the company’s stellar results, look no further. Here are the eight most important metrics behind Shopify’s staggering growth recently.

Stealing market share away from costly biologics as they lose patent protection got companies, including Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and Mylan (NASDAQ:MYL) betting big bucks on biosimilars that work similarly, and a new Trump administration proposal this past week could boost biosimilar sales significantly in the future.

    I’ve Been Finding Big Gains In Tech For Years
    Take, for instance, my discovery of the company NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) back in 2015.

    Prior to that time, NVIDIA was known as the premier maker of superfast video cards, but that was about it. That changed when NVIDIA launched a line of “deep learning” (artificial intelligence) products, including NVIDIA Shield and NVIDIA Drive, with applications in the smart home and self-driving car markets, respectively. This new product innovation created an acceleration in growth, along with exuberant analyst support, that has persisted to this day.

However, employers are increasingly embracing cloud-based software solutions that streamline the entire human resources industry, and that’s allowing younger companies, including Paycom Software, to chip away market share.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Buy For 2019: Chesapeake Energy Corporation(CHK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    EOG’s discoveries in the Powder River Basin bode well for other oil companies looking for new shale plays in the area. Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) stated in its second-quarter earnings release that the Powder River Basin was “quickly establishing itself as the growth engine of the company” thanks to the strong drilling results it has seen from wells in the Turner formation. Because of that, Chesapeake currently has five rigs operating in the area, all of which it has primarily focused on the Turner. However, the company noted that it’s exploring the potential of adding a sixth rig next year, which could enable it to target other formations in the region such as the Mowry and Niobrara. EOG’s results in those two plays are cause for increased optimism that Chesapeake could also be sitting on a massive oil and gas resource in the region.

Best High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Honeywell International Inc.(HON)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    UTC is clearly undervalued. It trades at a discount to Honeywell (NYSE:HON), perhaps its most similar rival, as well as competitors of individual business units such as Spirit AeroSystems and Ingersoll-Rand. And to Loeb’s point, there’s little reason for the set of assets contained within UTC to stay together: It’s hard to cross-sell elevators to jet engine buyers.

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    The key points:

    The stock trades at a discount to its peers, including poorly performing General Electric (NYSE:GE) as well as outperforming companies like Honeywell International (NYSE:HON). The company is going through a period of suppressed earnings due to transitioning several businesses toward long-term earnings growth — it should trade at an earnings premium rather than a discount. Management is actively looking at breaking up the company, and there’s significant value to be released if it does so.
    Discount to peers

    Looking across its industrial conglomerate peers, it’s clear the stock trades at discount on an EV-to-EBITDA — enterprise value (market cap plus net debt) to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization — basis. (EV-to-EBITDA is a very commonly used measure that helps compare companies with different debt loads.)

    Honeywell International (NYSE:HON) has been one of the best performing diversified conglomerates in the last year, and one of the few that’s outperformed the S&P 500 on a year-to-date basis at the time of writing.

Let’s take a look at why Honeywell has had such a strong run and what it means for investors.

    On June 27, shares of Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL), Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc (NYSE:DO), and Ensco PLC (NYSE:ESV) traded up more than 10% at various points. And while they’ve cooled off a bit — up 9.9%, 10.3%, and 8.9%, respectively, at recent prices — they continue to march toward today’s close with big gains.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finished lower on Friday, with triple-digit losses for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and modest declines of as much as half a percent for other major benchmarks. A mix of economic and political news kept investors on their toes to end the week, as fears of a possible attack on Syria watered down some of the potential upside that could have stemmed from solid earnings results from the banking sector during the morning. Even though many investors have pretty positive expectations going into earnings season, some companies suffered from disappointing news that sent their shares lower.

BlackRock, sponsor of the iShares exchange-traded funds, cut the expense ratios for 15 of its broad-market ETFs and five of its index mutual funds in October. Schwab retaliated soon thereafter, trimming fees for five of its ETFs. Last summer, Fidelity cut fees for 27 of its funds and ETFs. It now charges less for some of its index funds than does Vanguard, the indexing leader (see Fidelity Challenges Vanguard on Mutual Fund Fees). BlackRocks latest move makes iShares Core S&P 500 (IVV), which charges 0.04% annually, the lowest-cost ETF that tracks Standard & Poors 500-stock index.
