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)
