Why Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY), Home Depot Inc (HD) and Sysco Corporation (SYY) Are 3 of Today’s Worst Stocks

5 hours 1 min ago

Food-distribution giant Sysco was sucker-punched on Friday following reports that a new competitor — a potentially fierce competitor — was looking to get into the industry. It’s not as outlandish as it might have seemed several days ago, before Amazon announced it would be acquiring specialty grocer Whole Foods Market, Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM). While Amazon sells and delivers groceries and staples on a limited basis, the Whole Foods purchase was a big step into the brick-and-mortar aspect of the business.

10 hours 3 min ago

The latest chapter in what’s become an agonizingly long saga for ETE shareholders and for owners of ETP stock in particular? It may have to shut down its recently opened Dakota Access pipeline while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reconsiders the potential impact of an oil spill. Energy Transfer Partners investors can only hang their heads at this point, too tired of the roller coaster ride to even argue in favor of ETP stock.

Why Qualcomm, Inc. (QCOM) Stock Is Heading to $70

10 hours 44 min ago

Deciding what course to take with tech stocks hasn’t been an easy one lately, giving the rash of downgrades and bearish commentary coming from some prominent Wall Street analysts. Still, it’s tough to ignore the potential value in semiconductor Qualcomm, Inc.

QCOM stock, which could reach $70 in the next 12 to 18 months — delivering 23% returns — should be owned by investors who are willing to look beyond the noise.
