Netflix Stock Still Has Upside Despite Issues
There is no question that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has reached a critical moment. Netflix stock is under pressure, having lost more than 18% year-to-date. The big question shareholders are asking is whether this is a temporary weakness or the reflection of a chronic problem affecting the company in an increasingly competitive market.
Netflix, once the unchallenged platform for on-demand video, which seemed to have no end to growth, gained significantly fewer users in the second quarter. Netflix stock has plummeted as a.
More Upside for FB Stock?
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) stock seems to be the most appealing candidate for investors looking for a growth name among the market of large-cap tech firms.
The company’s metrics from its second quarter of 2016 and recent years outshine many of its closest competitors and other flagship brands in the tech sector. Its most recent earnings report showed FB stock exceeding analysts’ expectations yet again. Mark Zuckerberg and his fellow executives also provided some forward-looking statements explaining how Facebook will grow in the near.
Huge Potential for BABA Stock
Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) stock debuted nearly two years ago as the largest technology initial public offering (IPO) in the history after raising a whopping $25.0 billion. Alibaba stock sold for $68.00 a share and surged 34% at the time.
In November last year, BABA stock traded as high as $119.00 per share, up 75% from its IPO price. However, the stock suffered a beating due to the challenges confronting the company including allegations that it is tolerating the sales of counterfeit products on its web sites,.
TWTR Stock: Potential Bottom?
Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) stock has been the equivalent of dead money since June 3, 2015. If you were unfortunate enough to own shares at that time, your current loss stands at -55%. That is without a doubt a hard to pill to swallow.
When I ask people why they still hold a losing position, their answers are usually the same—it stems from peoples’ inabilities to trigger losses. They would rather wait until shares rebound or hit breakeven in hopes of getting out. That’s not exactly the best exit strategy.
There is a lesson to be.
CELG Stock: Back on the Bullish Track
If you are new to charting or just curious, Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) stock chart is a great example of charting at its best.
When I scan through hundreds of charts, I like to focus on the ones that I find clear and decisive. Some charts are just a complete mess, embedded with noise. I would rather not waste time trying to understand a message if it is not jumping out at me. It is much easier to just move on. This is why I was really enthused when I came across the chart of CELG stock.
Beautiful charts look.
Is PYPL Stock Protected?
The digital payments industry is undergoing a massive transformation right now and it could have an outsize impact on Paypal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:PYPL). My guess is that PYPL stock will live or die depending on what happens in the next 18 months…
The company is under siege from various competitors, but it can survive by building a moat. “Moat” is a term that business writers borrowed from military strategy.
In military strategy, if you’re defending a fort or castle from an invading army, you’d dig a trench around the perimeter..
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock recently released quarterly results, which helped the company improve its uninspiring performance this year.
Apple stock, one of the reliable overachievers of Wall Street, has lost more than 2.2% year-to-date. However, the trend may have changed after investors and analysts seem to agree that the worst is over for AAPL stock in 2016.
Does that mean AAPL stock isn’t in the clear just yet?
While CEO Tim Cook didn’t exactly deliver stellar news, shares avoided tanking because Apple somehow mustered better-than-expected results,.
This Could Be Huge for WMT Stock
Retail companies like Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) aren’t exactly the hottest picks in the stock market today. While U.S. equities just soared past their all-time highs, Walmart stock returned a measly 0.9% in the past 12 months. Now, there might be something that could boost the appeal of WMT stock—a potential acquisition of Jet.com Inc.
On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Walmart is in talks to buy e-commerce startup Jet.com. While it’s uncertain how much Walmart would be willing to pay for the.
