How Carbonite (CARB) Stock Stands Out in a Strong Industry

Zacks Equity Research

One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is Carbonite, Inc. CARB. This is because this security in the Computer – Services space is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Computer – Services space as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 28 out of more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.

Meanwhile, Carbonite is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.

    Marijuana Producer Green Thumb Stock Jumps on Anticipated Demand

    Illinois cannabis vendors are bracing for a tornado of demand when the state starts recreational sales in January, said Chicago-based (GTII) on Wednesday night. While reporting a big jump in Green Thumb's (ticker: GTII.Canada) September-quarter revenue and cash flow late Wednesday, CEO Ben Kovler described how the state's medical-marijuana merchants are preparing for a recreational market they expect to be 10 times as large. It can take a year to get production from new facilities, Kovler said on the conference call, and Illinois' June approval of adult recreational use in 2020 left producers just six months to get ready.

    Tesla’s new “cybertruck” appears to be coming tonight

    Those vehicle segments represent just 6% share of vehicles sold in the US, according to a note analyst Adam Jonas of Morgan Stanley sent to investors Nov. 12, despite Tesla's success with its Model S luxury sedan, and Model X SUV, and mid-priced Model 3 sedan. In North America, pickups account for one of every six vehicles sold in the US (when including crossovers and SUVs, the share rises to 70%). Perhaps most important, pickups account for about 80% of the North American auto industry's profits (and all of Ford's and GM's), Jonas noted.

    Even DIY Cocktails Can't Help Brexit Blues

    Fevertree Drinks Plc, maker of what Tatler magazine dubbed the ultimate mixers, said sales would be lower than expected this year while British home-improvement retailer Kingfisher Plc, owner of B&Q chain, said its third quarter was disappointing. Both online appliance and electronics retailer AO World Plc and clothing and food stalwart Marks & Spencer Group Plc have cautioned that shoppers are behaving as if they are in a recession, despite wage growth running ahead of inflation and strong employment. For Fevertree, which rode the cocktail craze, the about turn has been particularly abrupt.

    If You Had Bought Stoneridge (NYSE:SRI) Shares Five Years Ago You'd Have Made 159%

    One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS). During the five years of share price growth, Stoneridge moved from a loss to profitability. That kind of transition can be an inflection point that justifies a strong share price gain, just as we have seen here.

    Should You Investigate STERIS plc (NYSE:STE) At US$149?

    STERIS plc (NYSE:STE) received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NYSE over the last few months, increasing to US$155 at one point, and dropping to the lows of US$137. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether STERIS's current trading price of US$149 reflective of the actual value of the large-cap?

    Salesforce expects to double revenue — again

    Salesforce is expecting to capture $35 billion in revenue in fiscal-year 2024, roughly double of where it anticipates it'll be in 2020, the company said Wednesday. But it's not the first time Salesforce has projected it will double its revenues. In March, for example, the San Francisco-based company said its revenues would double to approximately $28 billion in fiscal-year 2023 from where it expected to close out in fiscal 2019.

    Tesla’s new pickup will struggle to win over the Midwest’s truck die-hards

    While a luxury vehicle on the coasts implies an Audi or BMW, in states like Nebraska, Arkansas, Montana, and Texas, it's more likely to mean a fully-loaded Chevy Silverado capable of hauling 35,500 lbs. As even pedestrian pickups' median price has soared from $32,557 in 2010 to $45,260 in the first half of 2019, according to the research firm J.D. Power and Associates, the high end keeps going up. Tesla wants to tap into this vehicle category, America's most profitable. The company's new pickup is due out tonight (Nov. 21), and it's billed as big, fast, and “crazy” powerful by CEO Elon Musk.

    WeWork to lay off 2,400 employees globally in SoftBank revamp

    WeWork said on Thursday it is laying off around 2,400 employees globally, as the office-sharing company seeks to drastically cut costs and stabilize its business after it transformed from a Wall Street darling into a pariah in a matter of weeks. "As part of our renewed focus on the core WeWork business, and as we have previously shared with employees, the company is making necessary layoffs to create a more efficient organization," a company spokeswoman said in a statement. "This workforce reduction affects approximately 2,400 employees globally, who will receive severance, continued benefits, and other forms of assistance to aid in their career transition," the New York-based company added.

    Rather than focusing on chaotic impeachment inquiry hearings in Washington, all eyes were on the 10 Democratic candidates who qualified for the November Democratic debate in Atlanta to make their case in a setting that remains ever-important for keeping their campaigns alive. While the candidates broached topics that have dominated previous debates — such as health care and climate change — the all-women panel of moderators spent more time questioning the contenders about some of America's other looming policy questions: What would the candidates do about the country's housing crisis? How would they go about developing paid family leave proposals?

    It May Already Be Too Late for Macy’s

    The department store giant reported Thursday that comparable sales sank 3.9% from a year earlier in the quarter, or 3.5% including licensed departments, a sharp retreat from meager gains it had recorded on this measure in the first half of the year. It was such a weak showing that the company cut its profit forecast and now expects declining comparable sales for the full year. Of course, department stores have been challenged for years because they rely on an older customer and are often tethered to the types of malls that are withering in the e-commerce era.

    More than 1,350 Australian women won a seven-year-old class action lawsuit on Thursday against Johnson & Johnson (J&J) for misleading patients and surgeons about the risks of the pharmaceutical giant's pelvic mesh implants. The suit is one of many J&J has faced in the United States, Canada and Europe over the implants, used to treat urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, in which organs shift from normal positions.

    OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma LP got court approval on Tuesday to reimburse millions of dollars in legal fees for states that back its proposed $10 billion settlement of opioid lawsuits, but with a condition meant to help victims of the addiction crisis. Purdue had told Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain at Tuesday's hearing in White Plains, New York that paying the fees for seven firms that work on behalf of states and local governments would help bring structure to its Chapter 11 case and resolve it quickly.
