    U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB) has long been one of the most efficient big banks in the United States. But the Minneapolis-based bank doesn’t approach efficiency in the same way that most of its competitors do. As opposed to focusing on expenses, U.S. Bancorp has minimized its efficiency ratio by driving revenue.

    After the results of the capital plan reviews were announced, most banks individually announced increases (or maintenance) of their stock buybacks and dividends for the next year. Here are a few of the most significant:

    Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) will give shareholders a 25% dividend increase to an annualized rate of $0.60 per share and will also increase its buyback authorization to $20.6 billion over the next year, up from the previous year’s $12.9 billion. Citigroup (NYSE:C) is giving shareholders an impressive 41% dividend hike to a quarterly payout of $0.45 per share and is also planning to spend up to $17.6 billion on buybacks over the year, a modest but significant $2 billion increase over the previous plan. Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) was one of the big positive surprises, after a tough couple of years for the bank. Wells announced that its dividend will increase to $0.43 per share in the third quarter, and that it plans to spend as much as $24.5 billion on buybacks over the next year — a sharp increase from the past year’s $11.5 billion. JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) is raising its dividend by 43% to $0.80 per quarter, and is planning to buy back as much as $20.7 billion in shares over the next year, a mild increase from its 2017 capital plan, which called for $19.4 billion in buybacks. U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB) plans to increase its dividend by 23% to a quarterly payout of $0.37 and to repurchase as much as $3 billion of its stock over the next year, up from the previous authorization of $2.6 billion. American Express’ (NYSE:AXP) capital plan was closely watched, since the bank had decided to suspend buybacks for the first half of 2018 in order to bolster capital levels. The bank announced that it would repurchase up to $3.4 billion in shares over the next year and also plans to raise its quarterly dividend from $0.35 to $0.39 per share.

    The deal with Weichai Power, moreover, is noteworthy in that it distinguishes Ballard from its fuel-cell peer, Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG). Although the material handling equipment market has been its bread and butter, Plug Power has made inroads in broadening its reach into the electric-vehicle market in the U.S., and management is keen on expanding its footprint in China. On the company’s recent Q2 earnings call, however, management noted that it has failed to find a worthy partner. It seems, therefore, that in the race to the Chinese electric-vehicle market, Ballard has taken the pole position.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Software giant Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) reported its second quarter of fiscal 2019 earnings results on Jan. 30, turning in earnings per share of $1.10 and revenue of $32.47 billion, good for year-over-year growth of 12.3% and 14.6%, respectively. Pretty good numbers for a company as large and established as Microsoft. The company also called for revenue to fall in the range of $29.4 billion and $30.1 billion, nearly hitting the consensus of $29.83 billion at the midpoint of the range. 

Although those distilled numbers tell us that Microsoft’s business keeps marching in the right direction, it’s worth looking at some of management’s commentary on the most recent earnings call to get a better sense of how the business is performing.

Microsoft’s gaming revenue was up 8% year over year during the second quarter, with revenue from Xbox software and services rising 31% over that same period. Although the gaming business grew more slowly than the overall business did in the quarter, this is still a pretty solid result, especially considering the company, as well as the industry overall, is in the final innings of the current game console cycle.

    Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) and Woodward (NASDAQ:WWD) are both industrial products companies, but which is the better investment? We will compare the two businesses based on the strength of their dividends, risk, analyst recommendations, institutional ownership, profitability, valuation and earnings.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That much becomes clear after taking a look at fuel cell stocks Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP). The companies generated just $235 million in revenue combined last year. While that would seem to indicate that the technology has a ways to go, a closer look shows both companies are on an upward trajectory as they position to exploit decarbonization trends. It also reveals two different growth strategies.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ:PLUG) certainly acted that way following the release of the company’s first-quarter 2018 operating results. Year-over-year revenue growth of 91% is pretty difficult to argue with, and management thinks second-quarter 2018 sales will grow by at least 60% from the prior-year period. All in all, it’s shaping up to be a great year for top-line growth.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

At the end of 2017, I sounded a bullish tone on fast-food operator Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM). The parent company of fast-food staples KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell appeared to be on a winning track with its re-franchising efforts and global growth strategy.

YUM stock also appeared undervalued given forthcoming tax reform and consistently positive comparable sales growth.

But that was all before Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG) stole Taco Bell’s Chief Executive Officer Brian Niccol.

Believe it or not, that is a game changer. Niccol is largely credited with turning around the Taco Bell business and making it a trendy dining option popular among millennials, and with good reason. He had been at Taco Bell since 2011, and with him at the company, Taco Bell went from a business with negative comps to a business with consistently positive comps.

That is why YUM stock has failed to rally despite a broader market rebound. The S&P 500 is 5% off its recent highs. YUM stock is nearly 10% off recent highs.

    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. Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and MBIA (NYSE:MBI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Shell Midstream Partners, L.P.(SHLX)

    Most investors have probably heard of energy giants Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP).

  • [By Mitchell Clark]

     The Toro Company (NYSE:TTC) is one of my favorite small-caps for medium- to long-term investors. Selling specialized equipment for turf management and other industries, Toro is a proven winner that has provided very consistent growth in sales and earnings over the years.

    It’s not the fastest growing small-cap business, but it pays a decent dividend and has a loyal customer base in the golf course and contractor markets.

    Toro is now offering sprinkler refit equipment for water-starved jurisdictions like California. This company’s share price performance has been exemplary.
