The Federal Reserve’s commitment to keeping interest rates at their current low levels despite rising inflation and market volatility have motivated renowned investor Cathie Wood to expand her holdings to include high dividend paying stocks. We think her top picks in this realm, Thermo Fisher (TMO), Deere (DE), NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), and Paccar (PCAR), could be valuable additions to one’s portfolio now. Let’s discuss some details.
Amid a global supply shortage, the rising demand for semiconductor chips from various industries is driving prices higher. However, efforts to boost domestic semiconductor production through private and government investments should help popular semiconductor companies NVIDIA (NVDA) and Intel (INTC) to grow significantly in the coming months. But let's find out which of these stocks is a better buy now.
The rising demand for raw materials has led to a substantial increase in the demand for cargo trucks over the past couple of months. As manufacturing and industrial production continues to rise, we think truck manufacturers Paccar (PCAR) and Oshkosh (OSK) should be able to generate solid revenues and earnings. But let's evaluate which of these stocks is a better buy now.
With rising demand for online marketplaces, companies have been increasing their digital footprints. The trend is also driving an increased focus on digital marketing. As a result, we think Adobe (ADBE), América Móvil (AMX), Interpublic Group (IPG), and TEGNA (TGNA), which facilitate digital marketing, could be big winners. Let's look closer at these names.
Improving macroeconomic metrics have lately triggered a stock market slump because investors expect the Fed to tighten its monetary policy. However, projected GDP growth and rising consumer spending should help the market rebound soon. Therefore, we think it wise to buy Salesforce.com (CRM), Horizon Therapeutics (HZNP), and Vipshop (VIPS) at their current price levels. Read on for an explanation.
The rising popularity of entertainment content streaming services over the past year has allowed companies in this space to generate significant returns. However, not all players in this industry have been able to capitalize on the tailwinds. We think collaboration with popular companies and lower-cost subscription choices should help Netflix (NFLX) deliver solid returns in the near-term. But Roku (ROKU), in contrast, has failed to assert dominance in a highly competitive industry. Let's discuss.
Support from the CARES Act and an increased digital presence over the past year have helped many retail companies survive the COVID-19 pandemic. And, as pandemic restrictions ease, job growth and direct recovery checks are likely to increase consumer spending over the coming months and help retail stocks gain momentum. So, we think L Brands, (LB), Crocs (CROX), and Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) are poised to make a strong comeback this summer.
Governmental policy support and consequent investor optimism have propelled many electric vehicles (EV) stocks to fresh highs over the past year, making them some of the most talked about stocks in the Reddit WallStreetBets (WSB) chatroom.
Because most businesses will likely adopt hybrid working models even after the pandemic, the customer relationship management (CRM) space is likely to witness increasing demand. The competitive advantage afforded by providing quick and reliable solutions is driving the performance of prominent CRM stocks Salesforce (CRM) and Zendesk (ZEN). But let's find out which of these stocks is a better buy now. Read on.
A spike in demand for immunity-enhancing drugs and personal protective equipment drove most pharmacy retailers to record sales last year. And because the trend is ongoing, we think U.S.-based pharmacy retail chains CVS Health (CVS) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) have the potential to continue delivering solid returns as the country battles the latest coronavirus infection wave. But let’s find out which of these two stocks is a better buy now.
Along with a recovering customer base with the fast reopening of the economy, rising demand for home delivery and drive-thru services are expected to help fast-casual restaurant operators reclaim their pre-pandemic operational levels soon. So, we think two leading casual restaurants, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) and Shake Shack (SHAK), are well-positioned to capitalize on the industry tailwinds. But let’s find out which of these two stocks is a better buy now.
Software stocks Salesforce (CRM) and HubSpot (HUBS) are being rewarded by investors given the rising demand for remote-working software solutions in the current era of hybrid work structures. A favorable industry backdrop and continued innovations should allow both stocks to keep moving higher in the coming months. But let’s find out which of these stocks is the better buy now.
