    3 Market Staples Reporting Earnings This Week

    We’re in the busiest time of earnings season, with over one-fourth of the S&P listed companies set to release quarterly reports in the coming days. Based on the S&P members that have reported so far, results are good. Total earnings are up 2.6%, and revenues are up 2.9%. While slow, this growth is better than the losses predicted before earnings got underway.Here, we look at three blue chip stocks which are reporting earnings this week. They are mainstays of investment portfolios, some are favorites of big-name investors, and all are available at a share price of $55 or less. AT&T, Inc. (T)The venerable phone company is well-known as one of the best dividend stocks on Wall Street. AT&T offers investors a 6.22% dividend yield – one of the highest among S&P-listed companies – with a current annual payout of $2.04 per share.The dividend is important because T shares show a somewhat shaky earnings future. The company took on tremendous debt last year when it acquired Time Warner; however, free cash flow since then has been sufficient to meet the dividend and the debt service. While AT&T carries $169 billion in debt, the company says that it can pay off 75% of the Time Warner purchase debt by the end of this calendar year.That will be major achievement, and investors will be looking for evidence that it is realistic. AT&T is counting on the acquisition to power its move toward content creation and distribution as it moves into the streaming landscape. The acquisition of Time Warner was intended to bring a solid content provider to T’s DirecTV segment, and boost declining subscriber numbers. On the earnings front, Wall Street expects T to show 89 cents EPS on July 24, up from 86 in the last quarter, but down 2.2% year-over-year.Looking toward T’s performance, JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick wrote back in May that he expects a net loss of 2.9 million DirecTV subscribers in 2019 before seeing trends improve in 2020. At the same time, he expects “average revenue per remaining user to increase 3.4% this year, to $119.65.” His bottom line on the stock: “Sentiment should improve as the trajectory of sub losses improves in late 2019, but our sense is that investors are starting to look past it already—in the meantime the 6.2% dividend will continue to come through.” Cusick’s price target of $38 of suggests an upside of 15% to the T shares.Earlier this month, Citigroup’s Michael Rollins also put a buy rating on T, and bumped his price target up 8.8% to $37. His new target implies an upside of 12% to the stock.Shares in AT&T are selling for $32.79, and the stock holds a strong buy from the analyst consensus. That rating is based on 8 buys and 2 holds given in the past three months. The average price target, $36, suggests that T has room for 9% upside. Coca-Cola Company (KO)Investing guru Warren Buffett has long been a fan of Coca-Cola, both the drink and the stock. He sees the stock as a staple, bringing slow and steady profits, and paying out a reliable 3.1% dividend yield of $1.60 per share annualized. Coca-Cola bases its performance on a solid, and growing, line-up of beverage products.Heading into fiscal Q2, Coca-Cola’s stock is trading just 1.5% below its 52-week high point. The stock hasn’t always had such good times; starting in Q2 2015, the company saw revenues drop every quarter until Q4 2018. The trend has begun to reverse, however, and in Q3 2017 EPS began to grow again, while last quarter, Q1 2019, saw a revenue gain of 5.2%.More health-conscious consumers have been putting pressure on the company, as they shift away from sodas in the US domestic market. Coca-Cola has responded by diversifying its product line, to offer drinks across all segments of the beverage market. The company is already well-known for its Dasani water and Minute Maid juices; the company also owns Costa Coffee and Fuze Beverages.So far, the strategy appears to be working, and KO’s Q2 sales are expected to show an increase of 8.83%, powering a revenue jump of 12%. The expected EPS of 62 cents is 3.3% higher than the year-ago quarter, and 29% higher than Q1. The quarterly earnings are scheduled for release on July 23.Dara Mohsenian, of Morgan Stanley, keeps KO as his ‘top overweight pick,’ saying “the beverage maker offers a growth profile that is underappreciated by the Street.” He adds, “On a two-year average basis, Coca-Cola managed to improve its organic topline growth by 80 basis points in the past few quarters which is above the 70 basis point range many of its peers are showing.”In line with his upbeat outlook on KO, Mohsenian increased his price target by 3.6%, from $55 to $57, indicating confidence in the stock and an upside potential of 11%.Coca-Cola’s analyst consensus rating is a moderate buy, based on 4 buys and 5 holds set in the past three months. The average price target, $52.29, is only 1.75% higher than the current share price of $51.39. These numbers reflect the stock’s ongoing transition away from the losses of recent years and towards the upbeat outlook detailed by Mohsenian. Ford Motor Company (F)Our third pick, Ford Motor, may be the most controversial here. Like Coca-Cola, it has a mixed rating, but it also the highest potential upside, the lowest cost of entry, and the second-highest dividend yield of the stocks in this list. In addition, shares in Ford are up 33% year-to-date, far outpacing the S&P 500’s 18.5% gain.Ford maintains its position by its popular and profitable lineup of pickup trucks. The F-Series (F-150, F-250, and F-350) are consistent best-sellers, and have led the US market in automobile sales since 1986. In 2018 alone, F-Series trucks brought the company $41 billion in revenues. According to Jim Farley, Ford’s head of global markets, that sales performance makes the F-Series a more valuable brand than Coca-Cola.Ford’s management is essentially using the popular and high-margin trucks and SUVs as a cushion while the company is in the process of reducing its small-car sales and developing lines of electric and autonomous vehicles. Possession of such an asset – the F-Series brand – has helped keep Ford’s revenues mostly stable in recent quarters, with revenue volatility in the past three years holding in an 8% range.Looking forward to the Q2 earnings report, Ford’s revenues are expected to come in at $34.86 billion, a slip of 2.9% from the year-ago quarter. True to Ford’s form, Q3 guidance predicts gain of 2.7%. Q2 EPS is expected between 30 and 33 cents, a gain of 11% to 22% over last year’s Q2. EPS for FY2019 is expected at $1.38, a gain of 6.15% from FY2018.Recent analyst reviews of Ford have focused on the company’s strategic partnership with Volkswagen in developing electric and autonomous vehicles. RBC’s Joseph Spak, while keeping a hold on the stock, increased his price target by 10%, to $11, after Ford announced plans to work with VW and Argo AI developing a high volume EV in the European market. Spak says that Ford management deserves high credit for strategic thinking. His price target is 7% above Ford’s current share price.On the bull side is UBS analyst Colin Langan, who boosted his price target to $13 and put a buy rating on the stock. Looking at the European market and Ford’s initiatives in the EV segment, he says, “Given the upcoming European regulation shifts, this should help Ford avoid emission fines.” Langan’s price target suggests a 27% upside to Ford shares.Overall, Ford has a moderate buy from the analyst consensus based on an even split of 6 buys and 6 holds. Shares trade for $10.20 with an average price target of $11.77, giving the company’s stock an upside potential of 15%.

    UPDATE 1-Ford to lay off around 200 workers at Canadian plant

    Ford Motor Co will lay off about approximately 200 employees in September at a Canadian manufacturing plant in Oakville, Ontario, with the possibility of more layoffs in January, the company said on Friday. "We have been arguing as a local for the past several weeks trying to persuade the company from somehow avoiding this scenario, but to no avail," Dave Thomas, president of Unifor Local 707, in Oakville, Ontario, said in a note to members that was posted on the union's website on Wednesday. Ford attributed the layoffs to slowing sales of the Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT, both of which are produced at the Oakville plant.

    3 Hot Investing Trends: Next Steps and Big Opportunities

    That cracking sound you heard last week was the stock market breaking through its previous highs to set all-time records.Source: Shutterstock That moaning sound you heard was investors who thought: a) stocks would keep falling after the pullback in May, or b) stocks were at all-time highs and couldn't keep going higher.Either way, they're missing out.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsI hope you're not one of them. But if you are, it's not too late. That's my message to anyone who will listen to me.I for one am all in on stocks. That shouldn't surprise you if you're a regular MoneyWire reader. In My Top 10 Predictions for 2019 from last December, I said the S&P 500 Index would be up a minimum of 25% at some point during the year. As of today, it's up 21%. We're close.I am more confident than ever that the market will top 25% gains in the coming months. I like the current environment, and I also just came across pretty compelling historical data that is perfect for current conditions. I'll have more for you on that next week.The U.S. stock market continues to be the greatest wealth creator in the history of mankind. If you want to live the life of your dreams, you need to be invested in stocks -- especially companies leading the way in massive, unstoppable trends that are changing our world.These are the themes I research deeply and talk to so many industry insiders about.They are themes that you can profit from in multiple ways.And they are the themes that give you the absolute best chances to make 2X, 3X, 5X, or even 10X your money.Let's check in on some of the latest news in those trends. Another Step on the Path to LegalizationWe have to start with marijuana. It may be the hottest theme right now, and it's a monster opportunity that just got better.We continue to get more signals that legalization is around the corner, and the latest is a big one. Last Wednesday, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security held a hearing in which reform of marijuana laws was discussed.As I wrote last week, the need for reform is something both parties actually agree on. There still needs to be agreement on exactly what reform would look like, whether it's decriminalization, changing marijuana's status as a Schedule 1 drug, opening up banking laws for marijuana companies, or leaving the decision to the states.Any of those options move us closer to full legalization and will supercharge the already huge opportunity.Also this week, another one of our stocks joined the Pot Jumpers club as KushCo Holdings (OTCMKTS:KSHB) applied to uplist to the Nasdaq Composite from the Over-the-Counter (OTC) Exchange.Jumper Stocks are one of the most exciting opportunities in the exploding legal marijuana industry. These jumps from the minor leagues to the major leagues give companies instant credibility, access to institutional buyers previously forbidden from owning shares, and increased coverage from analysts.All of it is like fuel for the rocket ship. (I actually just recommended my newest Pot Jumper stock, which is a bit different than our others and is in great position. I'm targeting at least 3.5X our initial investment.)We've seen a few marijuana stocks make the jump already this year, but less than 10% of all cannabis-related companies currently trade on the big exchanges. This trend is still in its very early stages, so expect a lot more uplistings in the future.I also want to let you know that I'm about finished beta testing a new way to make money in marijuana stocks. I don't see anyone else doing this yet, but the early results are incredible. (You can learn more about it here, including how to get access to it for free when it's ready to go.) Big Names Continue to Pour Big Money Into Transportation 2.0"Our industry is going to change more deeply in the coming 10 years than in the 100 years before."Matthias Muller, the then CEO of Volkswagen, spoke those words in May 2017. A little more than two years later, the world's second largest car maker is investing a lot of money in what's to come.This morning, Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY) and Ford Motor (NYSE:F) expanded on an existing partnership, adding both electric vehicles (EVs) and autonomous vehicles (AVs) to the list of things they're working on. Ford had already invested $1 billion in Argo AI, a private company developing a self-driving system. Volkswagen will invest $2.6 billion in the same company.Volkswagen has also already invested about $10 billion in developing EVs, while Ford is investing $11 billion over the next several years.The stakes are so big that other companies usually viewed as competitors have teamed up to develop EVs and AVs, including General Motors (NYSE:GM) and Honda Motor (NYSE:HMC) as well as BMW (OTCMKTS:BMWYY) and Daimler (OTCMKTS:DMLRY).When an industry like transportation is disrupted, it will lead to trillions of dollars moving from the old to the new. You want to invest in companies that will be on the receiving end of these trillions of dollars on the move. Investors can make a tremendous amount of money in a short time. What's coming is going to be that powerful. 5G Makes HistoryLongtime readers know I'm a huge sports fan, so I especially love it when sports and technology come together … not to mention investing opportunities.Last Thursday, the NBA broadcast a Summer League game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Washington Wizards using smartphones and 5G technology. The game was on in several places, including the ESPN app, NBA TV Canada, and NBA League Pass. AT&T (NYSE:T) provided the 5G network. Samsung provided the smartphones. And Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) provided the network infrastructure.The 5G network is the biggest breakthrough yet in this age of wireless communications. Just as there were fortunes made in prior generations, there will be big money made once again. In fact, I think the opportunity is even bigger now because the leap ahead will drive some of the most powerful tech trends the world has seen -- cloud computing, virtual reality, smart cities, healthcare, autonomous vehicles, and on and on.I think of it as the next-generation toll road. The road to the future passes through 5G, and it's time to set up our booth and start collecting.Matthew McCall is the founder and president of Penn Financial Group, an investment advisory firm, as well as the editor of Investment Opportunities and Early Stage Investor.
