We’ve also included the stock’s first-day pop (or decline) and its return as of the most recent close. Spotify Technology S.A. (NYSE: SPOT) is not included because its IPO was a direct offering that did not raise any new cash. Spotify shares popped nearly 13% on the April offering date, and the return to date is 27%.

    AXA Equitable Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EQH): $2.75 billion; first-day pop of 1.7%; return to date: 1.3% GreenSky LLC (NASDAQ: GSKY): $874 million: pop of 1.6%; return of −7.9% BJ’s Wholesale Club Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BJ): $638 million; pop and return of 29.4% DocuSign Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU): $629 million; pop of 37.0%; return of 83.0% Pivotal Software Inc.

    Looking ahead to the third quarter, Renaissance Capital notes 65 companies currently in the IPO pipeline looking to raise $11 billion. Real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield is the both the largest potential IPO ($500 million) and the largest based on trailing 12-month sales ($7.23 billion). The pipeline is again heavy on health care offerings (11), industrials (five), financials (five) and, in a bit of a comeback, energy (four).

The research group identifies positive and negative news coverage by analyzing more than 20 million news and blog sources in real-time. Accern ranks coverage of companies on a scale of negative one to positive one, with scores closest to one being the most favorable.

  • [By Neha Chamaria]

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL) shares fell through the floor in the first quarter of the year, losing more than one-third in value; they regained some ground to end the first half of 2018 down 22.4%, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Going by the stock’s recovery in the past couple of months — July has also been strong so far — it seems investors are betting on better days ahead for the flooring retailer.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), Camping World Holdings (NYSE:CWH), and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) have taken a beating this year. They’re among the biggest losers through the first three quarters of 2018. Let’s go over why I think they have a shot at bouncing back in the next three months.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    It may not feel as if it can get much worse for Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. (NYSE:LL) shareholders. The flooring retailer reported second-quarter results on July 31, and Mr. Market added more injury to an already painful year, sending shares down more than 20% by the time the market closed. And while the company continues to face challenges, including relatively weak traffic growth and high expenses, it probably had a better second quarter than the market’s reaction would indicate.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

That&s;s &q;big dividends&q; in the relative sense.

With the U.S. 10-year Treasury rate at 2.7%, then stocks paying more than a 4% dividend yield are of interest. An equity has more risk intrinsically than a government bond — if you&s;re willing to accept that, then you may find the higher yield a more attractive choice.

All of the stocks listed here have low price/earnings ratios. Again, that&s;s in the relative sense. Since the p/e of the Standard &a;amp; Poor&s;s 500 is about 30 and the p/e of the Russell 2000 is 89, I&s;m calling a p/e of less than 15 &q;small.&q;

&l;strong&g;Alliance Bernstein&l;/strong&g; is in the business of managing financial assets. The price/earnings ratio is 10.9 and the dividend yield is 9.05%.
