Google, eBay, LinkedIn Among Top Internet Stocks

 

Google (GOOG), eBay (EBAY) and LinkedIn (LNKD) are ranked in the top five among all Internet stocks, Investor’s Business Daily reported.

The professional networking site LinkedIn has done well during the recession as users log in to find prospective employers or employees. On February 7, the company reported a 192% jump in EPS and revenue rose 81%. Shares jumped 21% on February 8 on the report, and have continued to soar.

Google (GOOG), the world's largest search engine, has seen some competition crop up in recent years but the company has successfully expanded its business to mobile phone software. Its Android software is the world's No. 1 wireless OS. Google shares rose 0.8% Monday intraday after earlier hitting a new record high of 815.22.

eBay (EBAY) has also expanded its services and is no longer just an auction site. The company recently revamped its site to make it easier for users to buy and sell goods. The company also owns PayPal, the online payment giant. In January, eBay reported a 17% EPS gain, just beating analyst estimates.

GOOG, EBAY and LNKD are Cabot Top Ten Trader stocks.

Here's a quick note from our Publisher...

Dear Reader,

In an age dominated by rapid-fire news, where people often talk first and think later, how do you make sense of the world? More importantly, how do you use the evidence available to you to make intelligent investment choices?

I suggest you choose Cabot, and here's why.

Timothy Lutts

First we've been in the business of advising individual investors for more than 42 years. So we have the benefit not just of experience but also of perspective, something sadly lacking in many advisers today.

Second, our advice is designed to serve you, not the companies we recommend or any third-party sponsor. We don't manage money, and we never accept payment, in any form, to recommend a company.

Third, we promise you independent thought. Way back in the eighth grade, my history teacher, Max Pofcher, once called me an iconoclast-I had to go home to look it up. But it turns out he was right. I've always liked to question the common wisdom, not in an obnoxious way, but in a quiet, probing-for-the-facts way. And my decades in the investment industry have reinforced the value of this trait.

So join us today. It costs nothing, and I guarantee you both stimulating reading and well-reasoned investment advice you can trust.

Options Trading Lesson: The Company Is Not the Stock

By Jacob Mintz on May 03, 2016

Divorcing one’s personal beliefs from a company’s products and its stock can be extremely challenging. However, a look at the stock’s performance and options trading can go a long way to helping investors avoid their personal biases.Read More >

Burger Stocks: The Bubble Has Burst, and One Clear Winner Has Emerged

By Timothy Lutts on May 02, 2016

Burger stocks exploded last year. It started with the IPO of Shake Shack (SHAK) in January, an offering that was priced at 21, but began trading at 47. It was fueled by lots of hype about trendy private chains, like Five Guys, In-N-Out Burger, Whataburger, Umami Burger and Iron Chef Bobby Flay’s Bobby’s Burger Palace.Read More >

Another Dire Stock Market Prediction: Whoopee!

By Paul Goodwin on April 29, 2016

McKinsey & Company is a big consulting firm—9,000 consultants and 2,000 researchers around the world—that companies hire when they need advice. I get research reports from McKinsey every once in a while, and they’re usually beautifully designed, well written and interesting in an abstract kind of way. The report that reached my email in-box on Thursday had the intriguing title: “Why investors may need to lower their sights.” (Note how the avoidance of Capital Letters makes things a little edgier; that’s the McKinsey Difference!) It took seven people to write this little piece of analysis, so you know it must contain really valuable information. Read More >
