Could Mondelēz International Beat 3Q17 Earnings Estimate?

2017-10-19 marketrealist
Mondelēz International (MDLZ) is scheduled to announce its 3Q17 earnings on Monday, October 30, 2017. Analysts expect it to report EPS (earnings per share) of $0.55, which would be a YoY (year-over-year) rise of 5.8%. Improved sales and a focus on reducing costs are expected to drive the company’s bottom-line results. Mondelēz has exceeded analysts’ EPS estimates in four of the past five quarters. However, soft demand for packaged food in the United States (SPY) and tough YoY comparables are expected to remain a drag. (6-0)

Two Buys: PepsiCo And Qualcomm

2017-10-18 seekingalpha
This is a brief portfolio update. A goal for September-December, 2017 is to raise cash. Most of the time I'm fully invested. The portfolio cash position on July 31 was a rock-bottom 0.2%. By August 31, the cash position was up to 2.66%. By September 30, it grew to 3.89%. As of October 17, cash is now 6.77% of the portfolio. If you're chuckling at this point, I completely understand. Many people routinely hold 20% cash or more, particularly in a bull market to maintain some "dry powder" for a pullback. (49-0)

Could Hershey Stock Rise after Its 3Q17 Results?

2017-10-18 marketrealist
Hershey (HSY) is set to report its 3Q17 results next week. Analysts expect the company’s upcoming quarter to remain muted on the sales and earnings front. The sequential decline in volumes in North America due to the timing shift in the shipments and lower demand for packaged foods are expected to hurt the company’s sales. Lower net price realization in international markets and challenges in China (FXI) are expected to remain a drag. (10-0)

When we see gigantic Dow Jones components jumping like small capitalization stocks, which helped the venerable index trade through 23,000 at one point today, we do know that something real is afoot," he said.
