5 Stocks to Watch this Week 10/23 - CMG, GOOGL, INTC, AMZN, XOM
Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG)
Consumer Discretionary - Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure | Reports October 24, after the close.
The Estimize consensus calls for EPS of $1.73, thirteen cents higher than the Wall Street consensus, with revenues nearly in-line at $1.15B.
What to watch: Chipotle is recovering yet again from another norovirus outbreak last quarter. Despite that, same store sales came in at 17.8% and 8.1% for the first two quarters of the year, but the Estimize community believes that will slow to 3.7% for the third quarter. Other recent positives include the addition of “Smarter Pickup Times” in numerous locations around the U.S., which have helped reduce wait times by as much as 50%.
Other restaurant names reporting this week: MCD, BWLD
Information Technology - Internet Software & Services | Reports October 26, after the close.
The Estimize consensus calls for EPS of $8.63, 24 cents higher than the Wall Street consensus, with revenue expectations of $22.0B vs. the Street’s $21.9B. This suggests profit and revenue growth of -5% and 21% respectively. Historically, Alphabet Inc. has beaten Estimize EPS 52% of time and Wall Street EPS 70%.
What to watch: Besides EPS and Revenues, the other important metrics to pay attention to when it comes to Google’s ad business is advertising revenues, which Estimize expects will grow 14% YoY in the third quarter, paid clicks which are estimated to be up by 3% and cost per click, anticipated to decline 36%. Investors will be looking for a read on the company’s growing cloud business as well, with that and “other9rdquo; businesses growing 42% last quarter. “Other bets” which includes Alphabet’s moonshot investments such as autonomous cars and healthcare initiatives grew 34% last quarter and now make up 1% of total revenue.
Information Technology - Semiconductors | Reports October 26, after the close.
The Estimize consensus calls for EPS of $0.82, two cents higher than the Wall Street consensus and an increase of 2% YoY. Currently, the Estimize community is looking for sales of $15.8B, also higher than Wall Street’s $15.7B.
What to watch: After gross margins increased YoY by 5 percentage points in Q2 (to 61.5%), analysts on Estimize now expect Q3 to take a dip from the year-ago quarter, to 62% from 63.3%. Bright spots include improving PC shipments, despite the fact that worldwide PC shipments declined 3.6% in Q3 according to Gartner, although the decreases have been slowing each quarter of this year. Intel’s re-entry into the memory space could pay off as well. The semiconductor is investing in their NAND flash business during a time when high demand and a shortage of inventory have been benefitting memory companies. The stock is up 11% YTD.
Others reporting in this industry this week: AMD, TXN, NXPI
Information Technology - Internet Software & Services | Reports October 26, after the close.
The Estimize consensus calls for EPS of $0.15, 17 cents above the Wall Street consensus, with revenues in-line at $42B.
What to watch: All eyes will be on Amazon this week as they release their first report that could show how the integration of Whole Foods is going. The third quarter also included the company’s third annual Prime Day, which was the biggest shopping day ever for Amazon and garnered more Prime member sign-ups than any other day in history. Aside from their retail operations, Amazon Web Services will also be in the spotlight, with the Estimize community expecting YoY growth in AWS revenues to have increased 38%. Consolidated Segment Operating Income (CSOI) is also expected to come in strong at $1.57B, suggesting growth of 13% for Q3.
Energy - Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels | Reports October 27, before the open.
The Estimize consensus calls for EPS of $0.87, in-line with Wall Street. Currently, the Estimize community is looking for sales of $63.95B, lower than also higher than Wall Street’s $63.97B.
What to watch: Improving Brent Crude and WTI prices over the last year have helped the world’s largest oil & gas company return to profit growth for the last 3 quarters. This quarter is still expected to show growth of 38%, an impressive although slowing number. While the third quarter got off to a rough start, prices began to recover by August and have been going strong ever since, boding well for fourth quarter results. Investor’s will also be looking for comments on how tax reform, which seems nearer with the recent passing of the budget, would benefit the energy giant.

TRENDINGZ - best stocks to watch this week 2018-01-08
And welcome back to Trendingz, list of best stocks to watch in upcoming week. Like always, I have made analysis of more than 150 trending stocks from past week and have chosen TOP 10 most interesting for you.
More comments you can find at the end of this topic:
I really love this triangle pattern on Tesla stock. Especially its long-time frame. As I always remind, remember to play this setup only when you have signal, either BUY or SELL. Green arrow shows only one possibility of exit! There is equal chance for fall too! But move should by significant.
JNJ is very adorable when it comes to technical analysis. It has just made pretty small, but kind of nice flag pattern. It’s not even close to one describes in books, but I see potential here. And Monday morning is perfect time to join the trend. You are just at the time when train arrives!
If read Trendingz regularly, you should know I like keepings things simple. So we have another simple pattern. Support on Fibbo 61,8% working as it should work meaning that we may expect gains. How far? Nobody knows. But Monday is again perfect time to join the trend, so you may not be late again. And when it comes to SL, I’d keep it of course somewhere under support line.
You could read more about CMG in one of previous Trendingz. We had Kumo Breakout (one of my fav indicators), nice gains and now working resistance of 68,1% Fibbo. That means I’m in, joining trend on Monday. CMG is not over with gains imo and for me is best one to watch over next week. Don’t miss my number 2 for this week, hidden in extra stocks!
Yes, again triangle - simple, working, boring. And its same as with Tesla - we still don’t have signal, so we still don’t play it. I’ve just market one of possible outcomes. Other way is possible too!
This time we can see wedge pattern which may bring us really nice gains. I’d play long, if it breaks out from top. I’d keep away from playing short as it is not so profitable (just read our Investing Tips and Rules to know more).
In my opinion it’s TOP 1 triangle to play! Possible gains like 20%, perfect timing to enter the market and really, really nice pattern. Imo worth to try, I’d call it TOP 3 setup from all this week Trendingz, so for sure keep and eye on Pandora Media Inc stock next week. Or even bet money on these gains.
Welcome back TEVA! After kumo breakout signal, we had rally on Teva shares. Supported by good news about turnover in company. TEVA is worth to bet on, I’m still bullish. And imo it’s not too late to join the trend.
P.S. What is this colorful mess? Read about Ichimoku, my favourite TA technique
Huge, long-term triangle. I like more one on Tesla, but this may work out too. And of course, don’t hesitate and wait for proper signal. Buy or sell, its not decided yet
Last but definitely not least. RAD is bringing us my favorite signal, Kumo Breakout. This one itself says “go long”. Usually last companies I put on list are most risky and it’s not different this time. Gains may be awesome, but risk is also high. Ichimoku just doesn’t seem to work well with nearly penny stocks. Sometimes it work, sometimes not. Decision is yours.
And I wanted to continue “new tradition” of some extra companies for registered users. For this week I have something special - a super nice, solid oversold company, on which I’m betting my money. My TOP 2 stock to watch next week with amazing, long term chance for gains. And 2 extras for Ichimoku lovers. Who wouldn’t like to know it?
Stocks to watch this week 19th March 2018
The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) All Share Index closed down last week, despite the release of results by 2 tier one banks, Zenith Bank and GT Bank. Here is a look at the stocks we feel investors should keep an eye on this week.
Access bank is one of the 5 tier one banks collectively known as FUGAZ. Tier one peers, Zenith Bank and GT Bank, last week released fantastic results with both banks making over N200 billion in profits. Year to date, Access Bank has appreciated by 12.92%.
Results for the 9 months ended September 2017 show that interest income increased from N181 billion in 2016 to N245 billion in 2017. Profit before tax also increased from N68 billion in 2016 to N72 billion in 2017.
UBA is another stock to watch this week, as the market awaits its results. The stock has appreciated by 13.11%, year to date. Results for the 9 months ended September 2017 show that gross earnings increased from N265 billion in 2016 to N333 billion in 2017. Profit before tax increased from N58 billion in 2016 to N78 billion in 2017.
FBN Holdings will also be on the spotlight this week alongside other tier one banks. Year to date, the stock has returned 29.55%. Results for the 9 months ended September 2017 show that interest income moved from N278 billion in 2016 to N356 billion in 2017. Profit before tax, however, dipped slightly from N57.4 billion in 2016 to N55.1 billion in 2017.
Julius Berger Plc late Friday released its financial statements for the year ended December 2017. The company has bounced back to profitability with a N3.7 billion profit. The company has also declared a N1 dividend per share. Year to date, the stock is down 11.32%, but could witness price appreciation in view of the improved results.
Top Penny Stocks to Watch This Week (March 12)
Today, we’re bringing you the top 10 penny stocks to watch this week based on their combined 272% rise over the last week.
Plus, we’ll take a look at one of the best small-cap stocks you can buy to lock in your portfolio’s profit potential.
Just look at the numbers posted by Jaguar Health Inc., last week’s biggest gainer.
Jaguar climbed from $0.14 to $0.34 in one day – a gain of over 140%.
While Jaguar’s gains are exciting, they’re not much use to enterprising investors, since they’re already in the books.

5 Stocks To Watch: Week Of August 17, 2015
Monday, August 17
Tuesday, August 18
Wednesday, August 19
Friday, August 21
Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ: URBN )
Very rarely does the Estimize community have a corporate earnings or revenue consensus that is lower than Wall Street’s, but this is the case for Urban Outfitters. Currently, the Estimize consensus calls for EPS of $0.48 vs. the Street’s $0.49, meanwhile revenues are expected to come in at $877M vs. $883M. The company continues to struggle with its flagship brand, Urban Outfitters, while their other brands Anthropologie and Free People have had an incredible run, although more recently Anthropologie sales have slowed as well.
A trend towards e-commerce has hurt stores such as Urban Outfitters, who rely on in-store sales for a bulk of their revenues. While they have ramped up improvements to their e-commerce site, such sales come with thinner profit margins. Like many others in the apparel space, Urban Outfitters is likely losing marketshare to fast-fashion retailers such as H&M (ST: HMb ) and Zara, which service the same customer demographic. They’ve had to offer deeper discounts to compete. Last quarter same-store sales came in at 4% for the retailer, missing analyst expectations of 5.3%.
Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE: WMT )
The world’s largest retailer has an Estimize EPS consensus for $1.15 as compared to Wall Street’s estimate for $1.12 and guidance of $1.16. The Estimize community is also expecting slightly higher revenues of $120.3B vs. $1.20.2B. Retail sales over the last couple of months have shown increased consumer health in the U.S., with the likes of Wal-Mart benefitting from lower fuel prices and increased consumer confidence. However, retail results from this earnings season have been mixed thus far, with department stores such as Macy's (NYSE: M ) and Kohl's (NYSE: KSS ) missing results last week, while Nordstrom (NYSE: JWN ) and J.C. Penney (NYSE: JCP ) surprised on the upside.
A few concerns for Wal-Mart revolve around competition, with the likes of e-commerce giant Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN ) stealing marketshare with its Prime subscription service. Wal-Mart recently offered its own subscription shipping service, free shipping on most items for $50 a year. However, the service does not come with streaming video and cloud storage like Prime does, and also means lower profit margins due to increased shipping costs and price competition. Also, Wal-Mart will continue to see the impact of increased costs. The retailer raised entry level wages to at least $9/hour in April, and will increase wages to at least $10/hour by February 2016, a feat that will cost at least $1B.
Home Depot (NYSE: HD )
Next week we also get a few reads on the housing market when earnings for Home Depot and Lowe's (NYSE: LOW ) are released. The Estimize community is currently looking for EPS of $1.72, two cents higher than the Street, with sales roughly in-line at $24.7B. After incredible results in the first quarter, the company increased guidance for fiscal 2015. The home improvement retailer has been benefitting from the continuing recovery in the U.S. housing market, especially during the peak spring and summer season. When home prices appreciate as they have been, consumers typically invest in their properties.
Home Depot has been stealing some market share from Lowe’s this year, as they deal with negative headlines from carrying Chinese laminate flooring that contained formaldehyde, a possible carcinogen. Home Depot also only has domestic locations, but their exposure to international markets still makes them vulnerable to currency fluctuations. The stock just traded at a new all-time high of $119.74 on Friday.
American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE: AEO )
While many teen retailers have been losing market share to the fast fashion circuit, American Eagle Outfitters has been holding its own. For the second quarter, the specialty retailer is expected to post EPS of $0.16 as compared to the sell-side expectations for $0.14. The Estimize community expects sales to come in at $770.5M vs. Wall Street’s consensus of $762.5M.
American Eagle Outfitters put up superb results in Q1, beating on both the top and bottom-line, and even growing EPS 650% from the year-ago period due to improving sales, a decrease in promotional activity and progress in its omni-channel business. That report caused the company to release positive guidance for the second quarter, issuing an EPS outlook of $0.11 - $0.14, higher than analysts were predicting at the time. The second quarter should prove to be even better in the second quarter without the impact of harsh winter weather and delays from the West Coast ports.
Foot Locker (NYSE: FL )
The Estimize EPS consensus for FL currently stands at $0.75 as compared with the Street’s $0.69, an indicated increase of 19% YoY. Revenues of $1.66B are in-line.
Athletic wear has seen a surge in popularity in the past couple of years, and basketball shoes specifically are having a moment. Foot locker had the most profitable quarter in its history in Q1, with same store sales increasing 7.8%. Predictions aren’t quite as high for the current quarter, with comparable store sales expected to be in the mid-single digits, and then shooting up to the high single digits in Q3 due to an expectedly strong back-to-school shopping season. Management should be able to give some clues this week as to how the back-to-school season is faring thus far, and investors will also be keen to hear about the company’s plan for further expansion into Europe.
