Top Penny Stocks To Watch For 2017

5 p.m. Update: Apple stock slipped more than 2% in after hours tradingas the Q4 AAPL earnings disappointed Wall Street despite higher-than-expected iPhone sales.

Appleearned $1.67 a share in its fiscal Q4, one penny higher than the consensus analyst forecast. Revenue was $$46.9 billion, just short of the forecast for sales of $46.94 billion. However, the Q4 Apple earnings were down 14.8% from the same period a year ago. Revenue was off 8.93% year over year.

Despite conflicting predictions, the iPhone 7did well enough to push total iPhone sales above expectations. Sales of the iPhone brought in $28.16 billion, edging the forecast for sales of $27.78 billion.

That bodes well for the current quarter, when Apple traditionally sells the most iPhones.

Other good news in the AAPL earnings was guidance for the current quarter. Apple forecast revenue of $76 billion to $78 billion, well above the $74.9 billion analysts had been expecting.

On the negative side, Mac and iPad sales both continued to slide. Both segments came in below expectations.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Transocean (RIG) is rising Thursday afternoon, thanks to an upbeat fourth quarter.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    The oilfield services company said it earned 63 cents a share (a figure that excludes $13 million in net unfavorable items), well ahead of the nickel a share in earnings analysts expected. Revenue fell 47.4% year over year to $974 million, also above the $806 million consensus estimate. Transocean said its contract backlog was $11.3 billion as of its February fleet status report. Raymond Jamess Praveen Narra and J. Marshall Adkins reiterated an Underperform rating on the stock following the report. They praised the companys ongoing cost controls and strong revenue efficiency, which they expect to continue. But still arent ready to recommend the stock amid a difficult macro backdrop. More detail from their note:

    Transocean continued to minimize costs and maximize efficiency amid a challenging offshore environment, reporting 4Q16 adjusted EBITDA of $414 million, higher than our estimate of $363 million and consensus of $394 million. The beat was driven by lower than expected costs of $344 million (adjusting for favorable litigation), which came in ~12% lower than our estimate of $385 million and guidance of guidance of $375-385 million. Total revenue efficiency came in at 100.3%, as it was boosted by bonus incentives and possibly effective results from the new contracting model, particularly in the high-spec jackup market. The beat to our estimates was also driven by higher than anticipated revenues, which came in at $805 million, above our estimate of $788 million, but below the consensus estimate of $812 million. We note, our adjusted revenue excludes $169 million in early termination fees during the quarter.

    The shares are up 6.6% to $14.16 in recent trading, although theyre down 4% year to date.

    The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    Transocean (RIG)tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today as the entire energy sector got crushed on fears that production would start to grow.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Transocean dropped 7% to $13.85 today, while the S&P 500 fell 0.6% to2,280.90. The Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) dropped 1.9% to$72.85. The price of oil fell 1% to$52.63 a barrel.

    Yes, oil stayed above $50 a barrel, but in a note published this morning, Cornerstone Macro’s Carter Worth warned that a “stuck” oil price could be as damaging as a dropping one:

    Then, of course, theres the inconvenient fact that WTI Crude Oil itself is hopelessly stuck in the low $50 a
    barrel range a level at which it was trading in June of last year. Essentially seven months without any forward progress is the bottom line.

    Transocean’s market capitalization fell to $5.4 billion today from $5.8 billion on Friday. It reported net income of $782 million on sales of $7.4 billion in 2015.

Applied Material's 2 Biggest Growth Opportunities “

Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT) makes equipment that allows companies to manufacture semiconductors, displays, and other components for some of the most advanced technology on the planet. And just like other tech companies, Applied has to stay ahead of new trends so that it can provide the latest equipment to its customers.

Based on the company’s own earnings calls and new trends in the tech space, it’s becoming increasingly clear that both cloud computing and the transition from LED to OLED displays in smartphones will probably be two key growth opportunities for Applied. So let’s take a quick look at what the company’s doing in these markets and how it could benefit.

Two people working on semiconductor equipment.

Image source: Applied Materials.

To the cloud!

Let’s start with the massive cloud-computing market and Applied’s opportunity in it. Applied CFO Bob Halliday said on the company’s earnings call back in February “our customers will continue to benefit from making big investments in leading-edge capacity to power devices and the cloud.”

He went on to describe that cloud computing is creating huge value for industries such as advertising, retailing, transportation, and travel, and that companies in these markets will need to make “massive investments” in processors, memories, and displays as a result. Halliday indicated that this could be a very good thing for Applied’s growth, saying, “I see a very healthy future in this for Applied Materials.”

Halliday’s viewpoint is more than a hunch, though. Gartner estimates that cloud-computing spending will total $1 trillion between 2016 and 2021.

On display…

And while cloud-computing spending ramps up, Applied is already benefiting from another growing market: display technologies. Many tech companies are are transitioning from LED displays to OLED ones for things like televisions and smartphones, and it’s creating a massive opportunity for Applied.

The company’s CEO, Gary Dickerson, said on Applied’s first-quarter 2017 earnings call that 50% of its OLED equipment demand is coming from new customers in the mobile space. Dickerson noted that the current growth in OLED is increasing the company’s total addressable market.

“We have talked about tripling our served market as we go forward, and certainly as these new technologies like OLED or flexible OLED are adopted, that increases our total available market,” he said.

Applied thinks its customers will invest an additional $2 billion in display equipment this year and that even after this increased investment, the smartphone industry will only be at a 55% adoption rate for OLED. In short, there’s much more where that came from.

Investors should have confidence that the company will be able to follow through with its display-equipment ambitions, considering Applied has managed to grow display revenue by about 20% annually since 2012and because of its leading position in semiconductor manufacturing space. Morningstar analystAbhinav Davulurisaid that investors should expect the company’s revenues to grow by double digits in fiscal 2017 — and I think that at least part of that growth should come from the company’s potential in OLED displays and the broader cloud computing market.

Yandex N.V. Is Rightly Excited for the Future”

Yandex N.V.(NASDAQ:YNDX)announced exceptional first-quarter 2017 results on Thursday, highlighted by a recent antitrust deal with Google, stabilizing market share in its core search segment, and strong growth from its various other business units.

With shares closing up more than 10% yesterday as the market absorbed the news, let’s take a closer look at how the Russian internet search specialist kicked off the year, and at what investors can expect from the company going forward.

What happened with Yandex this quarter? Revenue excluding traffic acquisition costs (ex-TAC) — which Yandex compares to sales commissions — increased 28%, to 16.7 billion RUR. Adjusted net income — which excludes items like stock-based compensation — rose 18%, to 3.7 billion RUR. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBTIDA) grew 19%, to 6.9 billion RUR. Yandex’s desktop browser share climbed two percentage points to 23% from last quarter, while mobile browser share rose one percentage point sequentially, to 12%. Search queries in Russia increased 2% year over year. Revenue on a segment basis included: 23% growth in search and portal revenue, to 18.656 billion RUR. 24% growth from e-commerce, to 1.295 billion RUR. 75% growth in taxi revenue, to 778 million RUR. 54% growth in classifieds revenue, to 371 million RUR. 76% growth in “experiments” revenue, to 326 million RUR, driven by services including KinoPoisk, Yandex.Music, Yandex.Afisha, and Yandex.TV. Online advertising revenue grew 23% year over year, to 19.515 billion RUR, including 26% growth from Yandex properties, to 14.356 billion RUR, and 17% growth from ad network partners, to 5.159 billion RUR. Non-advertising revenue grew 77% year over year, to 1.137 billion RUR, primarily driven — as usual — by Yandex.Taxi. Earlier this month, Yandex and the Russian Federal Anti-monopoly Service (FAS) reached a settlement with Google in their antitrust case, through which Google has “agreed to take significant steps to open up its Android platform in Russia.” What management had to say

Yandex CEO Arkady Volozh elaborated:

The recently announced settlement between Yandex, Google, and the FAS will provide real choice to users and move us closer to a level playing field in Russia. We expect this will open the door to market share gains on mobile in 2017 and beyond.

“Continued investments and innovation in the core search business and our business units are delivering results,” added Yandex COO Alexander Shulgin. “I am particularly excited about Yandex.Taxi which delivered 484% growth in rides in Q1.”

Looking forward

As it stands, Yandex anticipates full-year 2017 revenue will climb in the range of 17% to 20% year over year, representing an increase to its previous guidance for 16% to 19% growth.Given Yandex’s broad-based growth this quarter, its freshly boosted outlook, and its favorable antitrust settlement with Google, Yandex investors have every right to celebrate with shares hovering near 52-week highs today.

What Is a Cannabis Church?

The marijuana industry is creating crossover companies and businesses in the yoga, real estate, and social media industries.

Now, there is even a cannabis church…

cannabis churchLocated in a 113-year-old building, the International Church of Cannabis (ICoC) opened its doors to the public in Denver, Col., on April 20, 2017.

Elevation Ministries, a recently formed nonprofit religious group, renovated the church. Members are calledElevationists and in their own words are dedicated to “creating the best version of themselves.”

However, not everyone is a fan of the cannabis church in Colorado…

Colorado State Representative Dan Pabon accused the church of “leveraging usage laws” and wanted to make it illegal to smoke in churches through an amendment introduced on April 20. Republicans and Democrats blocked Pabon’s amendment, stating it restricted freedom of religion.

But Elevation Ministries still felt pressure to change the event from being public to an invitation-only opening.

VideoThe International Church of Cannabis
However, the early interest in the marijuana church shows a growing acceptance of cannabis culture. According to a Gallup poll from October 2016, 60% of Americans believe marijuana should be legalized.

And with 28 states and the District of Columbia having some form of marijuana legalization, historic profit opportunities are being created.

The legal marijuana market is going ballistic. Last year, sales skyrocketed to $6.7 billion… and several analysts estimate sales could eventually reach $150 billion to $200 billion each and every year. Even better, right now marijuana stocks are on fire, with peak gains quadrupling in value.

Top 5 Growth Stocks To Watch For 2017

Despite the helter-skelter manner in which the Trump administration has operated, one thing has become pretty evident to investors and Wall Street. The president tends to stick to his word and really seems bent on delivering campaign promises. One of those promises is the infrastructure build-out, and combined with what appears to be an improving economy and sentiment by business, some stock market sectors that could play a big part are really getting some solid traction.

One of the subsectors that looks very solid right now is the metals arena, especially the top steel companies. In a new research report, Deutsche Bankraises itsprice targets on the top companies in the firm’s coverage universe. The report noted:

We continue to favor non-integrated companies and those that could benefit from higher US-centric growth rates, particular construction and infrastructure-linked Steel names. We retain overweight the sector with 9 Buys, 4 Holds and 1 Sell.

    Upscale retailer Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) faces the same negative trends as Macy’s in its full-line business. However, while Nordstrom’s management has shown a willingness to close a store here or there, investors shouldn’t expect any kind of massive store closure program at Nordstrom.

    For dividend investors wanting a solid yield, Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), and Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) look like solid choices. None is risk-free, particularly Nordstrom, which is in an extremely competitive industry. But all three offer dividend yields above 3% and a least a few reasons to be optimistic about the company.
