Here's A Preview Of Q4 Mid-Cap Internet Stock Earnings

In a note released on Monday, Cantor Fitzgerald’s analysts previewed the earnings release of mid-cap internet stocks Godaddy Inc (NYSE: GDDY), Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ: TTD) and Wix.com Ltd. (NASDAQ: WIX) and reviewed the results of Web.com Group.

Godaddy To Report In-Line Q4 Results

Cantor Fitzgerald expects Godaddy to report fourth quarter results, in line with the pre-announced results, which called for revenues of $486 million, also in line with the firm’s estimate. The firm also expects EBITDA to come in line with the consensus estimate of $89 million.

The firm believes that the management’s commentary on new subscriber growth ( up 6.9 percent year-over-year), cost of subscriber acquisition and ARPU trends ( up 6.9 percent year-over-year) would show the company’s fundamentals remained healthy in the fourth quarter. The firm also expects the company’s 2017 outlook, excluding the pending < a href=”https://techcrunch.com/2016/12/06/godaddy-is-buying-rival-host-europe-group-for-1-8b-to-accelerate-its-international-expansion/”> acquisition of Host Europe Group, to come in line with Street estimates.

The Trade Desk To Report Solid Results

The analysts expect Trade Desk to report solid fourth quarter results, with Cantor’s estimates calling for revenues of $62.3 million on non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.22, in line with the consensus estimates. The company IPOed on September 21, 2016, at $18 per share.

According to the analysts, the company’s focus on the buy side, its scalable self-serve model and strong reputation among ad agencies should be reflected in the fourth quarter results and position it well in the rapidly growing programmatic ad segment going forward.

Wix.com’s Subscriber Growth To Be Key Revenue Driver

Cantor believes Wix’s subscriber growth would be its key revenue growth driver. Specifically, the firm expects the company to end the quarter with 2.45 million customers, up 39 percent year-over-year, and ARPU to rise 4 percent. The firm also believes the company’s registered user base also rose at a healthy pace.

Accordingly, Cantor expects revenues of $82.1 million and earnings of $0.04 per share for the fourth quarter. This compares to the consensus estimate, which calls for earnings of $0.03 per share on revenues of $81.7 million. The firm also expects the company’s first-quarter guidance to be…

Nvidia Has Beat The Street In Every Quarter Since 2011; How Do Rivals Measure Up?

Nvidia Has Beat The Street In Every Quarter Since 2011; How Do Rivals Measure Up?

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) reported February 9 fourth-quarter earnings and revenues that exceeded estimates, with the company posting record revenues for 2017. The company said deep learning on its GPUs, a novel approach to AI, is used in varied applications, ranging from self-driving cars, early cancer detection and weather prediction. Datacenter and gaming revenues rose notably.

Consistent Churner Of Upside Earnings Surprise

Based on data from StreetInsider.com, Nvidia has been consistently beating earnings estimates since the third quarter of 2010. That would mean 26 straight quarters of earnings outperformance. Has the company’s successful execution got anything to do with industry-specific factors. If so, rivals such as Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) would have also capitalized. At least going by fundamentals, it doesn’t look so.

AMD’s Checkered History

AMD has had a stellar 2016, as it beat earnings estimates in each of the fourth quarters of 2016. Ahead of that, the company had reported either in line or below-consensus results for the seven quarter prior to that. In fact, the company’s story began souring since 2006, as it faced intense competition from Intel in the traditional chip market and could not stand up against Nvidia in the graphics chips market.

Related Link: The Consensus On NVIDIA Is Still Pretty Positive

No Parallels Among Other Rivals

Intel, which cannot be termed as a direct competitor to Nvidia, has done better than AMD, as it has reported largely better than expected earnings. However, there has been exceptions, as it reported in line earnings per share in the first quarter of 2015 and second quarter of 2013. Intel, meanwhile, reported below-consensus earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2013.

Toy Wars: Goldman Prefers Hasbro Over Mattel

Toy Wars: Goldman Prefers Hasbro Over Mattel

Shares of Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) hit a new all-time high of $98.76 on Friday while rival Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT) has been trading at its lowest levels in a year after a poor earnings report.

Analysts at Goldman Sachs initiated coverage of Hasbro with a Buy rating and $110 price target.

Analyst Michael Ng noted Hasbro could demonstrate upside to consensus estimates given its strong portfolio of entertainment-backed toys. Specifically, the analyst cited the “unprecedented amount” of movies including seven Marvel films in 2018, three Transformers films through 2019 and two Star War films. Moreover, momentum in Walt Disney Co (NYSE: DIS)’s Princess division should drive growth in sales of toys to girls.

See Also: Hasbro Vs. Mattel: Which Was The Better Toy Story In 2016?

Ng also initiated coverage of Mattel with a Neutral rating and $27 price target.

The analyst’s neutral stance is based on the fact that Mattel is undergoing a turnaround at its core brands, including Barbie, American Girl and Fisher-Price. While the turnaround initiatives should spur top-line and margin growth, consensus estimates are already factoring in a “meaningful recovery.”

Ng also cited increased execution risk, especially in the dolls division which faces heightened competition from Disney Princess.

The analyst’s rating marks the first time in three years the firm didn’t slap a bullish rating on Mattel’s stock to start the year, although a mid-year upgrade to Buy was seen in 2015.

Xoma Corp Trading Well Above Recent Offering Price But Below October Reverse Split Levels

Courtesy of Benzinga.

XOMA Corporation (NASDAQ: XOMA) shares are trading higher by $0.70 (16 percent) at $4.73 in Monday’s session. The issue bottomed at its higher opening tick of $4.30 and has continued to move higher.

Its current level is well above the pricing of its 25 million registered offering of common and convertible preferred stock price of $4.03. All of the shares will be sold to Biotechnology Value Fund L.P. and its affiliates in a registered direct offering.

It should be noted the issue has been a serial underperformer, which had a 1-for-20 reverse split on October 17. The reverse split was necessary to maintain the $1/share minimum bid price for continued listing on the NASDAQ exchange.

Since the reverse split took place, the issue has spent very little time at or near the closing level that day ($6.97) and did not bottom until Friday, when it shares reached $3.96.

China Bonds, Stocks, Commodities Extend Gains As Yuan Tumbles To One-Month Lows After Renewed Liquidity Injection

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

As China got back to work after Golden Week, it appeared a renewed exuberance appeared in every orifice of liquidity provision (even as PBOC sucked up excess for 6 straight days). Stocks are up, bonds are up, and commodities are soaring (all as Yuan tumbles) and tonight authorities unleashed 100bn reverse-repo (for the first time in 7 days) as leverage seems nothing to worry about again yields drop and asset prices rise.

As Bloomberg reports, China’s central bank restarted the use of an instrument that adds cash to the financial system, helping ease liquidity concerns before $153 billion of funds come due this week.

The monetary authority sold a total 100 billion yuan ($14.5 billion) of reverse-repurchase agreements, the first auction after a six-day pause, a statement posted on its website showed. While the open-market operations resulted in a net withdrawal of 90 billion yuan because of maturing contracts, the resumption signals that policy makers don’t want a sudden tightening of money supply, according to Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (China) Ltd. The People’s Bank of China last week allowed 625 billion yuan of reverse repos to mature, mopping up cash after adding record funds in the days before the week-long Lunar New Year holidays. Some 900 billion yuan of the contracts are set to mature this week, as well as 151.5 billion yuan of loans under the Medium-term Lending Facility, data compiled by Bloomberg show. That adds up to 1.05 trillion yuan, or $153 billion.

“The PBOC restarted the use of reverse repos to stabilize market sentiment because large maturities are on the way,” said Li Liuyang, a Shanghai-based market analyst at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (China).

“The net result will probably continue to be a withdrawal this week, but the pace will be controlled to avoid any crunch. We also expect it to conduct MLF, given the maturities.”

And Lo and Behold – China soars…so much for all that worry about Trump trade wars!!

Stocks are up…

Bonds are up…

And every industrial commodity is exploding higher…

And all of this as the Yuan tumbles in a Trump-infuriating way… dropping to 5-week lows





The Rats Are Fleeing The Sinking Bond Ships

Glen Hubbard, George Bush Jr.’s economic adviser, was a candidate

to replace Alan Greenspan as Federal Reserve Chairman.  George Bush Jr. asked him if the economy

sputtered, what would he do.  As he

described the typical monetary policy tool of adjusting the overnight Federal

Funds Rate, he said the net result would be to boost GDP by a half of a percent

to percent.  I assume the same question

was asked to Ben Bernanke.  Helicopter

Ben didn’t disappoint and won the appointment.  As Chairman of the Federal Reserve, he got his

chance and threw everything including the kitchen sink at stimulating the

economy.  He lowered the Federal Funds

rate down to zero and purchased trillions of bonds to expand the monetary base.

 He unleashed the most excessively

accommodative monetary policy in history which was continued by current Federal

Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen.  Fast

forward to today and we are on the cusp of a 3+% GDP, core inflation running

above 2% and full employment.  However,

there are some perilous costs associated with such accommodative monetary

policy.  The cost that should be the most

worrying is the unwinding of the ultra-low bond yields in the US and globally

that has just begun.

Bond yields and market volatility are on the rise. This is

the result of more normalized growth and inflation levels, less perceived

global risks and hope for continued growth in the future. Fixed income investors

have just begun to adjust to the idea of more normal yields in the bond market.  It may seem tempting to dip a toe into the

bond market waters with this back-up in yields. But these are dangerous waters.

Don’t lose a toe.  After 10 years of bond

markets rallying the unwind is just beginning.

Normalized markets for longer dated government bonds places

yields around 2% to 3% above the rate of inflation.  And with inflation running at 2% and moving

higher, longer term bond yields should be greater than 5%, not the current 3%.  If bonds yields backed up to the longer term

averages, market losses could be

Weekly Market Recap Feb 12, 2017

Courtesy of Blain.

The week that was…

The quite long in the tooth rally continues as we had 3 days of minor loses to begin the week; ending with 2 days of moderate gains.  We are in a bit of a quiet zone as most S&P 500 companies have now reported earnings, the Federal Reserve is not a “worry” for about a month and a half, and the major economic news of the month hit the prior week.  So the gnashing of teeth (or not) about government policy seems to be the main driver right now- late in the week it was announced some major new tax initiatives would be coming down the pike soon which the market liked.

President Donald Trump said Thursday that an announcement concerning taxes is on tap for the coming weeks, which his press secretary later said would involve an outline of a comprehensive tax plan. “Over the next two or three weeks,” Trump said during a meeting with airline executives, there will be an announcement that would be “phenomenal in terms of tax.”

“The market [is] trying to come to terms with whether the new administration and Congress will be able to work together effectively or not,” said Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial Network. “Most of the positive expectations were based on the assumption that we were at the end of the gridlock era, and that the Trump administration and Republican Congress would work together.”  Events of the recent week have called that notion into question and the possible repeal of Dodd-Frank is looking less likely, he added.

For the bears:  The latest weekly survey of U.S. advisors by Investors Intelligence showed that the number of bulls rose to 62.7% last week, the highest level since December 2004. Investor Intelligence considers a number above 55% a danger zone, as it is a strong, contrarian warning of a potential market top.

Bespoke posted a nice chart on Tuesday showing that the S&P 500 has now gone 80 days without a 1% drop; the longest streak since 2006.  So make that 83 days as of Friday!

Canada’s Problem? US Refugee Crossings “Epidemic” Amid Fear, Distrust Of Trump

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

In what some might call a ‘win’ for President Trump, Canadian immigration officials warn they are experiencing a “big surge [of refugees] coming across the border” with many of them proclaiming their distrust and fear of President Trump.

Sherali and Sarah Shah took in three asylum seekers who had been trying to get into Canada through the Emerson, Man., border Tuesday.

In the first official report of a group of “asylum seekers” who are malcontent refugees in the U.S. trying to become refugees in Canada being apprehended, U.S. border security guards and a local sheriff caught three Somali nationals trying to sneak across an open stretch of the U.S.-Canada border on Tuesday, according to CBC News.

Kris Grogan, a public affairs officer for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said border officials on the U.S. side are becoming increasingly worried about asylum seekers trying to get into Canada.

“It is extremely dangerous to be putting yourself out into these elements where you could end up dying,” he said.

The issue came into the spotlight after two refugees from Ghana were hospitalized in Winnipeg after suffering frostbite on Christmas Eve while lost on Highway 75, near the Canada-U.S. border.

The refugees were so badly frostbitten, they lost fingers and toes. Since the story of the two men became public, dozens of other asylum seekers, including a mother and two-year-old child, have crossed into Manitoba.

As AFP reports, Farhan Ahmed hoped to find refuge in the United States after fleeing death threats in Somalia, but fear over a US crackdown on immigration sent him on another perilous journey — to Canada.

The 36-year-old was among nearly two dozen asylum seekers who braved bone-chilling cold on a February weekend to walk across the border, trudging through snow-covered prairies in the dead of night to make a claim in this country.

It was a record number of arrivals for a single weekend in the small border town of Emerson, and Canadian officials said Thursday they are bracing for more.

An agreement with the US prevents asylum seekers from lodging claims in Canada if they first landed stateside, but it only applies to arrivals at border checkpoints, airports and train stations.

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.
