Walt Disney's films that the company has released so far this year are doing very well. This is being driven by strong domestic demand for good movies. The better-than-expected success of Disney's films could provide an unexpected boost to the company's growth and lift its stock price even higher.
Qualcomm shares have remained depressed for much of the year after the company lost a key Samsung contract. Qualcomm, however, has some interesting plays coming up, including sale of its UK 4G L-band spectrum. Qualcomm recently unveiled a technology that allows 4G to run in unlicensed spectrum, which could prove to be a significant game-changer for the company. Qualcomm's near-term outlook is not too good but its mid and long-term outlook is favorable.
Micron shares have sold off heavily after the company missed its earnings estimate for the third quarter running. This has been orchestrated by weakness in PC demand which has badly impinged Micron's revenue. Micron-Intel are due to start shipping 3D NAND chips later in the year and ramp up production in 2016. This will cut down the company's relaince on PC DRAM chips and gives Micron Stock significant long-term upside.
Shares of RF products manufacturer, Qorvo, have been selling off after Micron issued light guidance during its latest quarterly report. However, Qorvo's fundamentals remain intact despite the recent selloff triggered by Micron's results. Investors should use the opportunity to buy into Qorvo Stock.
COSCTO wholesale corporation has a 12 month price target of $152.41. Increasing membership base and warehouses expansions indicate long term growth potential. The company's performance is majorly driven by net sales, number of warehouses in operations and membership. Sales growth and gross margin is also affected by gasoline price, currency fluctuations and other competition.
The shift from traditional display ads to programmatic ads has been benefiting companies that sell retargeting products such as Criteo. Criteo is the market leader in retargeting technology and its products are used by some of the biggest ad publishers including Google and Facebook. Criteo faces some challenges such as the use of ad-blocking software by Internet users and the use of self-serve ad platforms. These challenges, however, are not likely to materially affect Criteo's growth and its shares remain a good investment.
Priceline shares have been moving lower after Duetsche Bank downgraded them citing the threat posed by AirBnB. AirBnB and Priceline's Booking.com home rental unit however serve different markets. The kind of threat AirBnB poses to Priceline is not a direct one but a more subtle one that involves providing people with an alternative to traditional hotels.
