Weekly Upgrades and Downgrades

During these busy times, it pays to stay on top of the latest profit opportunities. And today’s blog post should be a great place to start.

The Tesla Partner That’s Making Headlines

Well, electric vehicles (EV) are making headlines once again and no one is surprised to see Tesla’s (TSLA) name being thrown around.

Tesla was all over the news for several reasons. One being the company breeched the $1,000 per share mark this week and hit a new high of $1,100 per share. The company also hit an impressive market cap milestone recently, at $1.08 trillion.

Even more impressive, one of my Project Mastermind stocks has been all over the news in relation to their new, state of the art battery for Tesla. And the company may surprise you!

Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY) just unveiled a new prototype lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery. The PCRFY battery is five times the size of those currently used by Tesla. However, these new batteries only cost half as much to make and last five times longer than the previous batteries used by Tesla.

And that’s not all. The new battery is projected to boost production at Panasonic 100-fold by the end of the decade. Pretty impressive if you ask me!

My Accelerated Profits subscribers are already well-versed in Panasonic, as I recommended the stock to them back in August, after my Project Mastermind system flagged the name. I should add that when I recommended the stock, the news of their business partnership was just speculation with no prototype battery to show for it.

Now with the prototype set, Panasonic is seeing the fruits of their labor roll in. This week, the stock was up 8% and the company raised their profit outlook by 12% thanks to a share valuation gain.

Longer term, Panasonic is also developing a solid-state battery with Toyota—and it could revolutionize the EV industry. So, as EVs grow in popularity, Panasonic is poised to prosper as a major Tesla supplier, as well as a one of the winners in the race to make solid-state batteries.

What’s great is that battery demand is already adding to Panasonic’s top and bottom lines. During its first quarter in fiscal year 2022, earnings surged to 104.4 billion yen, compared to 3.8 billion yen in the same quarter a year ago. That exceeded expectations by 50% and represented the company’s strongest profit in a first quarter in more than a decade. Panasonic’s Automotive division achieved earnings of 9.8 billion yen, which was up from a loss in the same quarter last year. Panasonic also expects to report full-year 2022 earnings of 330 billion yen.

To get my latest buy advice on Panasonic, click here to subscribe to my Accelerated Profits service. You will get immediate access to the portfolio, including my brand-new recommendation found with my Project Mastermind system, released yesterday. This is a fundamentally superior stock that’s been firing on all cylinders, and I don’t expect it to tap the brakes anytime soon.

The company’s third-quarter earnings report is scheduled for next Wednesday. And currently, analysts are calling for triple-digit year-over-year earnings growth and double-digit year-over-year revenue growth. Over the past 90 days, analysts have revised their earnings estimates 82%. Positive analyst revisions typically precede positive earnings surprises, so an earnings beat could be in the offing.

If you want to get in now before the company’s earnings report next week, now is the time to do so. Click here for full details.

Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY)

What FedEx’s Earnings Tell Us About Inflation

FedEx Corporation (FDX) reported disappointing fiscal first-quarter earnings on Tuesday, after the close. As a result, the stock fell as much as 8% on Wednesday.

So, let’s take a deeper dive into FDX’s earnings and see what got the stock into trouble, and what it means for the market.

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, revenue rose 13.87% year-over-year to $22.00 billion, 0.48% above the consensus estimates for $21.89 billion. The company also reported earnings per share of $4.37, down 10.26% year-over-year and below analysts’ estimates of $4.92 per share. So, FDX posted an 11.21% earnings miss and a slight revenue surprise.

A major factor weighing on FDX’s earnings was rising inflation. FDX’s operating income declined 9.1% year-over-year to $1.49 billion, down from $1.64 billion in the same quarter a year ago. However, without the issues with inflation, operating earnings would have been closer to $1.94 billion.

Labor issues are also affecting FDX’s business. Company management stated, “First-quarter operating results were negatively affected by an estimated $450 million year-over-year increase in costs due to a constrained labor market.”

The bad news is inflation and labor shortages are taking a toll on business all over the country. Simply put, companies are paying more for less product and don’t have enough staff to execute the business they do have.

Now, FedEx is often seen as a “canary in the coal mine” of the stock market, testing the waters of what is to come. So, what does all this mean for the overall market?

Well, the reality is that while inflation can be a huge problem for subpar companies, it’s actually good news for fundamentally superior companies with growing sales and earnings. The reality is superior stocks are actually great inflation hedges!

Consider this: Stocks are real shares of real businesses, therefore companies that have successful and profitable business models act as life boats during the sinking ship of inflation. A successful company will simply match its prices to the rise of inflation to sustain business. For example, if inflation sends the price of fabric up by 6%, retail companies like Gap, Inc. (GPS) or Lululemon Athletica (LULU) will increase their prices by 6% to make up the difference without changes to their profit margins.

As far as FDX is concerned, I knew to stay away thanks to my Portfolio Grader. FDX is currently D-rated for its Total Grade, making it an automatic sell. It also currently has F-ratings for earnings momentum and for its Quantitative Grade, which measures institutional buying pressure on the stock.

If you’re looking for inflation hedges, I do not think FDX is your best bet. Instead, I would focus on high-quality stocks whose earnings shouldn’t be impacted by the problematic inflation. I reveal six of these stocks in my latest Growth Investor report, The Inflation Survival Guide: Six Stocks to Buy as America Turns Socialist.Click here so you can read it now.

These stocks are a part of elite sectors just on the verge of profit explosion. I run the entire stock market through my exclusive proprietary system every week. And the same six names kept popping up.

As I dug further, I realized these six tech companies were the ultimate inflation-beaters… the ultimate hedges against inflation.

They have proprietary technologies in rising new industries… and they are poised to explode thanks to a flood of federal government tech spending expected to hit the market.

If you’re concerned about beating inflation, even as it rises every year, you need to own these six stocks.

P.S. Right now, successful Americans like us have a bullseye on our back.

We’re facing a direct threat to our safety and prosperity.

The values we hold dear, like individual freedom, hard work and fiscal responsibility have been tossed aside.

The US national debt is growing at an unprecedented rate. And more spending is coming.

The cost of essential goods and services seems to get more expensive by the day. Critical materials are on backorder for months. Grocery store shelves are half-empty.

If you have any money in savings, in the stock market, in a 401k or even cash stuffed under the mattress, this should make the hair on your neck stand up.

To help understand the monumental problem we’re facing and why both our way of life and financial security are under attack, I put together a special presentation.

So, if you want to protect yourself and grow your wealth, I encourage you to watch this briefing now.

Is Apple a Buy After Its Annual Event?

The holidays may be a few months away, but one glance at the headlines shows that Christmas has come early for gadget lovers. Amid much fanfare, Apple Inc. (AAPL) unveiled a number of new products that will hit shelves over the next few months. Let’s take a look at the highlights and determine whether or not AAPL stock is a buy right now.

As usual, the biggest announcement involved the new iPhone 13. The tech giant announced the new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will have low light capabilities, for capturing better photos in dark settings, as well as astrophotography capabilities.

The new iPhones will feature Apple’s ProMotion technology, which aids in refresh rates. This technology makes gameplay and scrolling quick while the refresh rate slows down when not needed, improving battery life.

In terms of design, there isn’t much news. Apple did shrink the size of the notch at the top of the phone’s display for more screen space as well as rearrange the orientation of the rear cameras.

The company also unveiled its new Apple Watch Series 7 with a 20% larger display. However, folks have to wait until later this fall for the new iWatch, but can put in reservations. Apple also announced new and improved iPads and iPad minis. The tablets will have similar upgrades as the iPhone, with better screens, processing chips and rear and front cameras.

These new phones with better cameras, bigger batteries and new OLED screens will be snapped up, but the change is not enough too many investors excited. The stock has been sleepy all year and its price-to-earnings ratio is very low compared to the rest of the FAANG – Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOGL) – stocks.

Apparently, Apple briefly mentioned “the car,” so that will be a big deal when it is announced. Beginning as early as 2017, the Apple autonomous electric car project has been nicknamed “Project Titan.” The project is rumored to have as many as 1,000 car experts rumored to be actively working on developing the vehicle for Apple.

The bottom line is that Apple is just resting and boosting its service revenue until it can make the next exciting thing, which will be “the car” and/or the “folding 5G phones.”

So, Is AAPL a Buy?

You may know that last Friday was a rough day for Apple because it had a bad court decision on its app software. Even though the judge did not find Apple had a monopoly on the software, the stock declined 3% on the news. While many see the tech giant as a sort of bellwether, the reality is Apple is just a weak performer right now.

According to my Portfolio Grader, while it earns a B-rating for its Fundamental Grade, earnings momentum has a D-rating and cash flow has a C-rating. Its Quantitative Grade, which measures institutional buying pressure, holds a C-rating. AAPL’s Total Grade is a C-rating, making it a “Hold” right now.

I do not view the stock as a good buy right now, as there are plenty of more fundamentally superior stocks that will remain an oasis for investors.

Take one of my Growth Investor stocks, for example. EPAM Systems, Inc. (EPAM) is a software engineering services company introduced in 1993. Today, EPAM Systems operates in more than 35 countries, with more than 43,450 EPAMers and more than 275 Forbes Global 2000 customers. The company also has strategic partnerships with big-name corporations like Adobe, AWS, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce and SAP.

So, what services does EPAM Systems offer to attract such noteworthy partners? Simply put, EPAM Systems helps businesses adapt, grow more agile and faster, and stay competitive amidst a constantly evolving digital world. The company offers consultants and data expertise, designers to customize and develop digital experiences, engineers to construct software platforms, next-generation software solutions and process optimization solutions.

EPAM Systems collaborates with clients in a variety of industries, including automotive, retail, business information services, financial services, life sciences, travel and hospitality, software and insurance. The company has also partnered with healthcare clients, which includes Curogram. EPAM Systems is working with Curogram to help healthcare systems implement a simplified COVID-19 crisis response solution.

EPAM also shows strong earnings growth. During the second quarter, reported on August 5, revenue increased 39.4% year-over-year to $881.4 million, while earnings rose 43.5% year-over-year to $155.2 million, or $2.05 per share. The consensus estimate called for earnings of $1.93 per share on $860.36 million in revenue, so EPAM topped earnings estimates by 6.2% and revenue forecasts by 2.4%.

For fiscal year 2021, EPAM now expects revenue to grow about 37%, while earnings per share are forecast to be between $8.25 and $8.44. That compares to earnings of $6.34 per share in fiscal year 2020, and this forecast is also nicely higher than current estimates for $7.74 per share.

Investors cheered the news, boosting the stock up 4% in the wake of its strong earnings results.

Now as you can see in the chart below, EPAM has significantly outperformed AAPL this year.

While EPAM isn’t as well-known or as “exciting” as AAPL, it offers a great deal more growth potential right now.

Of course, EPAM isn’t the only high-quality growth stock I recommend right now. My Growth Investor Buy List is chock-full of fundamentally superior stocks that are poised to do well in the coming weeks and months. This includes two stocks that have the potential to be some of the biggest winners of the shift to electric vehicles (EVs).

P.S. There is a great divide opening up in America – and investing in my Growth Investor stocks will help get you on the right side of it. On one side is a new aristocracy that’s amassing more wealth more quickly than any other group in American history. For people like me, the one percent, life has never been better, more prosperous.

On the other side, the opposite is happening. Wealth is flowing out of the pockets of ordinary Americans at an unprecedented rate.

What’s happening is only going to gather in strength over the coming decades. It certainly won’t weaken.

Few Americans even know that any of this is going on. I’ve never seen anyone from my side of the chasm step forward to explain any of these things.

It’s why I put together this video. In it, I’ll lay out exactly what is happening, including several key steps every American should take right now.

It doesn’t matter if you have $500 in savings or $5 million. You can benefit from the information in this video.

It’s free to watch, and by doing so, I know you’ll be ahead of everyone else struggling to understand what is really going on.

Is GameStop Out of Lives After Earnings?

GameStop Corp. (GME) has had quite an interesting year so far, rising to fame (and new highs) after a group of Redditors decided to “stick it to the man” and bid up GME.

GameStop’s surge was a fascinating example of a “short squeeze.” Simply put, when traders “short” a stock, they borrow shares of the stock they think will fall over a given timeframe. If the stock drops, they give back the shares and collect the difference between the initial borrowed price and the actual sale price.

In a January Market360 article, I explained why I would not recommend GME to my subscribers. The reality was the fundamentals were weak, and the stock was simply too volatile to pass my fundamental screenings.

I also talked about the stock’s underwhelming fourth-quarter earnings back in March. Well, the company has just released second-quarter earnings, and I am once again not impressed.

After the market closed on Wednesday, GameStop, Inc. unveiled second-quarter results that fell short of analysts’ expectations. During the second quarter, revenue rose 26% year-over-year to $1.18 billion, 5.4% above consensus estimates for $1.12 billion. The company also reported an earnings loss of $0.76 per share, up 54% year-over-year, but still wider than analysts’ call for an earnings loss of $0.66. So, GME posted an 14.3% earnings miss.

Interestingly, the company is under new leadership and no longer sees itself as a retailer but rather a tech company. The new leadership claimed in the earnings meeting, “We are evolving from a video game retailer to a technology company that connects customers with games, entertainment and a wide assortment of products.”

However, company management did not expand any further on its new business model. Perhaps the only things GME has in common with start-up tech companies is that it has lost a significant amount of money this year and lacks strong fundamentals.

GME dropped 9% in early trading after its weak fundamentals were put on center stage. Interestingly, the stock did rebound slightly on Thursday, but it ultimately ended the week lower.

Now, no one can argue that GameStop is in a better position than a year ago, but the reality is the stock is too volatile, and it doesn’t pass my fundamental screens.

Yes, my Portfolio Grader does give the stock an A-rating for its Quantitative Grade, which represents the strong buying pressure the stock has been under. However, its fundamentals are quite poor. It holds an F-rating for Earnings Momentum and Analyst Earnings Revisions, a D-rating for Cash Flow and Return on Equity and a C-rating for Fundamentals and Sales Growth. Overall, its Fundamental Grade is a “C.”

In other words, the stock is a mixed bag and likely a bubble waiting to be pricked. Short covering should never be confused with real strength, which is why I also recommend that GameStop and other short squeezes be avoided.

Instead, I encourage investors to focus on fundamentally superior stocks. In order words, stocks with strong earnings and sales growth, which also describes my Growth Investor Buy Lists stocks to a “T.”

Take my Growth Investor stock, Restoration Hardware (RH) for example. While certainly not as flashy as GameStop is right now, the company offers luxury home furnishings, including furniture, rugs, lighting and textiles. RH is also in the process of expanding its brand to include RH Guesthouses and RH Residences, which enable folks to stay in private, luxury accommodations.

RH also unveiled record quarterly results on Wednesday afternoon. Second-quarter revenue jumped 39% year-over-year to $989 million, up from $709 million in the same quarter a year ago. Adjusted earnings surged 105% year-over-year to $252 million, or $8.48 per share, compared to $123 million, or $4.90 per share, in the second quarter of 2020. The analyst community was expecting adjusted earnings of $6.48 per share on $975.45 million in revenue, so RH crushed earnings estimates by 30.9% and posted a 1.4% revenue surprise.

Thanks to the strength of its business and continuing demand for its home furnishings, RH increased its outlook for fiscal year 2021. Full-year revenue is now forecast to grow between 31% and 33%, up from previous estimates for 25% to 30% annual revenue growth.

Company management also noted that it anticipates a “more long-term and sustainable step change in consumer spending on the home.” In other words, RH expects folks to continue to spend money on nesting at home and/or updating their homes. As a result, RH stated that “2022 is shaping up to be the most exciting year on record for the RH brand.”

While the stock holds a B-rating for its Total Grade, its overall fundamentals are clearly much stronger. The fantastic second-quarter earnings report sent the stock soaring over 8% on Thursday.

My Growth Investor Buy List is chock-full of stocks at the top of their respective sectors, like RH. This includes two stocks that have the potential to be some of the biggest winners of the shift to electric vehicles (EVs).

Will Zoom Video Communications “Zoom” on Its Earnings Results Next Week?

The second-quarter earnings season is almost done, but it certainly is going out with a bang! We have a few stragglers that will be reporting over the next two weeks, including Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (ZM), which is up to bat with its results next Monday, August 30, after the market close.

For the second quarter, analysts expect earnings to increase 26.1% year-over-year to $1.16 per share, up from $0.92 per share in the same quarter a year ago. Revenue is expected to come in at $990.96 million.

Zoom has continually exceeded analyst expectations. For example, Zoom achieved triple-digit earnings and revenue growth last quarter, thanks to continuing demand for its online communications platform. For its first quarter in fiscal year 2022, Zoom had 497,000 customers with more than 10 employees and nearly 2,000 customers contributed more than $100,000 in trailing 12 months revenue.

For the first quarter, Zoom reported earnings of $402.1 million, or $1.32 per share, and revenue of $956.2 million. That represented 589.7% year-over-year earnings growth and 191% year-over-year revenue growth. Analysts were expecting earnings of $0.99 per share on $906.03 million in revenue, so Zoom posted a 33.3% earnings surprise and a 5.5% revenue surprise.

Interestingly, ZM currently holds a C-rating in Portfolio Grader, making it a “Hold” heading into Monday’s earnings report. The truth of the matter is that institutional buying pressure has eased up a bit, as evident by its C-rating for its Quantitative Grade. (I discuss how the Quantitative Grade works more in-depth in this Friday’s Growth Investor Monthly Issue for September. If you’re interested, you can click here to sign up now.)

However, let me say now that ZM’s outlook is very promising. So, I look for a fresh wave of buying pressure to drive up the stock following its earnings report and to upgrade ZM to a “Buy” again. So, while it’s not a stock I would buy right now, it’s not one I’d recommend selling yet either.

Here’s why…

Why I’m Especially Excited for ZM’s Earnings

In order to understand my excitement for the online video platform’s earnings, we have to back up and take a dive into one thing the federal government has done right during the COVID-19 pandemic.

That one thing is put money into the hands of consumers and businesses who can spend the money more effectively. The money supply has soared 40% in the past year. This has improved the velocity of money as life returned to some normalcy, which in turn boosts economic activity.

This is all to say that as the government becomes less and less effective, the private sector takes over and prosperity begins to soar. In other words, there is opportunity in the chaos. This is great news for companies like Zoom, which has been implementing transformable change recently.

The online platform the company provides has enabled businesses and individuals to stay connected during the global pandemic. It’s become indispensable during the last year.

My Growth Investor Buy List is chock-full of similar stocks that are revolutionizing the way we live.

In fact, I just added two more stocks that are revolutionizing the world around us and have the potential to be some of the biggest winners in the shift to electric vehicles (EVs). I released those stocks’ names in yesterday’s Growth Investor Monthly Issue for September, and if you sign up now, you can read the issue while it’s still hot off the presses.

Once you sign up, you’ll also have access to my two newest Elite Dividend Payers recommendations, one of which has the coveted AAA-rating. This means the stock has an A-rating in both Portfolio Grader and Dividend Grader, as well as an A for Quantitative Grade.

You’ll also get immediate access to my latest Top 5 High-Growth Investment Stock List, which I select each month based on their Quantitative Grade. In other words, these stocks are supported by strong institutional buying pressure, as well as superior fundamentals. If you’re interested, I encourage you to join me at Growth Investor today.

For full details, click here.

Note: There is a great divide opening up in America – and investing in my Growth Investor stocks will help get you on the right side of it. On one side is a new aristocracy that’s amassing more wealth more quickly than any other group in American history. For people like me, the one percent, life has never been better, more prosperous.

On the other side, the opposite is happening. Wealth is flowing out of the pockets of ordinary Americans at an unprecedented rate.

What’s happening is only going to gather in strength over the coming decades. It certainly won’t weaken.

Few Americans even know that any of this is going on. I’ve never seen anyone from my side of the chasm step forward to explain any of these things.

It’s why I put together this video. In it, I’ll lay out exactly what is happening, including several key steps every American should take right now.

It doesn’t matter if you have $500 in savings or $5 million. You can benefit from the information in this video.

It’s free to watch, and by doing so, I know you’ll be ahead of everyone else struggling to understand what is really going on.

10 Cybersecurity Stocks to Avoid and 1 to Buy

One of today’s most vital but growing industries is cybersecurity. Consider this: There were 93% more ransomware attacks in the first half of 2021 than in the same period last year. Ransomware attacks are a type of malware attack in which a hacker threatens to publish the victim’s personal data or block access until a ransom is paid.

These attacks have been growing worse with the rise of the “Triple Extortion” ransomware attack. This is when hackers steal data from the victim and threaten to release it unless payment is made. The hackers also often go after the companies’ customers or vendors in the same way.

You may remember the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack back in early May. The American oil pipeline system from Houston was completely shut down, causing a standstill of gasoline and jet fuel to many parts of the Southeast.

Investigators traced the attack back to a hack on software from cybersecurity company SolarWinds (SWI) that also affected several other government agencies. There was a similar attack last December on the cybersecurity giant FireEye, Inc. (FEYE), which actually pointed out the SolarWinds hack.

The reality is that there is a growing need to combat these large-scale attacks.

President Joe Biden held a cybersecurity summit this week at the White House, hosting corporate, educational and nonprofit leaders.

Among others, the leaders of Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Bank of America (BAC), Girls Who Code and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) attended.

President Biden, along with members from his cabinet and national security team, met with the executives to discuss ways to improve U.S. cybersecurity. Topics of conversation included everything from infrastructure resilience to building enduring cybersecurity to growing the cybersecurity workforce.

According to an official statement, “The U.S. needs to move to a system where cybersecurity is built into all technology.” In order to do so, the White House said, strong and worthwhile cybersecurity companies must be at the forefront.

As investors, there are many cybersecurity companies out there. However, not all of them are worth your time and money.

Today, I want to go through my Portfolio Grader system and pinpoint 10 cybersecurity stocks that don’t pass muster. I will also share my favorite cybersecurity stock on the market currently.

Below are the cybersecurity companies to avoid…

As you can see in the chart above, some of the biggest and best-known cybersecurity companies are on this list. With the well-publicized hacks, I talked about above, it’s no surprise that SolarWinds and FireEye are on this list.

If you’re considering investing in these companies, you may want to pump the brakes, especially on any with a D-rating. D-ratings are always an automatic “Sell” in my book.

With all these companies, what really stands out to me is their low Quantitative Grade. My exclusive quantitative formula measures the institutional buying pressure supporting a stock and then determines the quantitative grade.

Like individual investors, large institutional investors, such as corporations, cities and school systems, invest in stocks for income. These large institutional clients buy chunks of a stock, often worth millions of dollars. Typically, the more attractive a stock currently is to institutional investors, the better the stock will perform in the near term.

When you consider the lack of institutional buying pressure in these cybersecurity stocks, they’re not worth touching with a 10-foot pole.

My Top Cybersecurity Play

Personally, I like CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (CRWD) as a cybersecurity play right now. The company is in the lucrative cloud security business—and its business has been booming since the global COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, CrowdStrike offers real-time endpoint security, threat intelligence and cloud workload protection, helping prevent cyberattacks on and off an enterprise’s network.

The company’s platform, The CrowdStrike Falcon, utilizes its proprietary CrowdStrike Threat Graph to identify security threats and prevent data breaches. CrowdStrike boasts that its platform combines artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning with behavioral analytics and 24/7 threat hunting all in one solution to protect all workloads on the network—cloud-based, on-premises and virtual environments.

Currently, CrowdStrike offers 16 modules on its Falcon platform, which includes next-generation antivirus protection, firewall management, malware search engine and analysis, threat intelligence and threat hunting. The company also acquired Preempt Security in September to expand its offerings to include identity protection.

Back on June 3, fiscal year 2022 kicked off on a strong note, as CrowdStrike added 1,524 new subscription customers during the first quarter. Company management commented, “The CrowdStrike name has become synonymous with best-in-class cybersecurity protection and a platform that just works. Customers of all sizes are increasingly choosing CrowdStrike as their security platform of record.”

For the first quarter in fiscal year 2022, revenue soared 70% year-over-year to $302.8 million, with subscription revenue accounting for $281.2 million. That topped forecasts for revenue of $291.4 million. First-quarter earnings surged 400% year-over-year to $0.10 per share, up from $0.02 per share in the same quarter a year ago. Analysts were expecting earnings of $0.06 per share, so CrowdStrike posted a 66.7% earnings surprise.

So, it should be no surprise that CRWD is much more highly rated than the other cybersecurity companies. Here’s how it stacks up in Portfolio Grader:

While it struggles slightly in the cash flow and return on equity categories, CrowdStrike’s Quantitative Grade remains A-rated, which, as you know, means institutional buying pressure is extremely strong right now. Its Total Grade of a “B” makes it a Buy.

The company will unveil its second-quarter earnings results on August 31, after the market close. Currently, analysts are calling for earnings to surge 200% year-over-year to $0.09 per share, up from earnings of $0.03 per share in the same quarter a year ago, on revenue of $323.16 million.

CRWD rallied more than 30% since its first-quarter earnings report, and I look for a strong earnings report to really kick into high gear following its earnings results next week.

The bottom line: I expect CRWD to continue to outperform its competitors. This is why it remains a strong player on my Growth Investor Buy List.

CRWD is still under my set Buy Below price, so there really isn’t a better time to join Growth Investor. Not to mention my September Monthly Issue is being released today, where I detail major positives in the market, my two solid-battery buys and two brand-new dividend stock picks. I also highlight my Top 5 High-Growth Stocks and my Top 3 picks on my Elite Dividend Payers Buy List.

A Sneak Peek at Tomorrow’s Growth Investor September Monthly Issue

August was certainly a wild month for the stock market! The S&P 500 and Dow notched new highs, which were shortly followed by big selloffs. However, the selling always came on light volume, which is why I was never worried.

The stock market aside, we are living in a very chaotic world right now, as the unfolding tragedy in Afghanistan and the spreading COVID-19 Delta variant continue to dominate the news. But as tragic as these recent events have been, there are some positives amidst the chaos.

So, in today’s Market360 article, I’d like to share two big positives with you: the U.S. economy and ultralow interest rate environment.

The Conference Board now anticipates that the U.S. economy will grow at a 6% annual rate in 2021. Even more impressive, The Wall Street Journal recently reported that U.S. GDP increased 12.2% year-over-year in the second quarter, versus China’s 7.9% GDP growth. The massive order backlog due to supply chain glitches effectively ensures that the U.S. economy will grow at a 6% annual pace this year. Robust job growth and new consumers are also expected to boost retail sales and serve as the powerful one-two punch to support GDP growth.

In addition, Treasury yields remain ultralow. When Kabul, Afghanistan fell to the Taliban in mid-August, the 10-year Treasury yield dropped back below 1.25%. The ongoing chaos around the world is likely to help keep U.S. rates low for the foreseeable future, despite the financial media proclaiming that the Federal Reserve will start to curtail its quantitative easing. As we’ve discussed, the Fed may announce tapering at its September or December Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, but I don’t look for the tapering to actually happen until 2022.

Of course, the Fed’s easy monetary policy has created an inflation bubble. But we should see inflation ease up a bit in the fall, especially as demand for crude oil and natural gas ebbs with cooler temperatures across much of the U.S. Unfortunately, much of the wholesale inflation is here to stay.

I will share what else I’m excited about in Friday’s Growth Investor Monthly Issue for September. (You can join now by clicking here.) Once you read it, I’m confident you’ll be excited, too.

In addition, I will be releasing two brand-new fundamentally superior buys that make solid-state batteries, which positions them well to be some of the biggest winners of the shift to electric vehicles (EVs). Most of the current EVs primarily use lithium-ion batteries, which require lithium, nickel and cobalt. But there’s an acute battery shortage due to the lack of battery factories, as well as the high prices for nickel and cobalt.

Add in the global semiconductor shortage, and EV production has been curtailed dramatically. In fact, the deliveries of the Mexican-made Ford (F) Mach-e has already been postponed, and General Motors (GM) is in the midst of a massive and expensive recall of all the batteries in the Bolt EV. In other words, unless new battery technologies are utilized, the Biden administration’s 50% goal by 2030 is just a pipe dream.

Some companies, though, are turning to other alternatives. Apple (AAPL), for example, recently turned to the Chinese company CATL for iron-phosphate batteries for its upcoming EV. Iron-phosphate batteries are anticipated to be safer, as they are less fire prone, and they can better accommodate fast charging.

Now, the patent on CATL’s iron-phosphate batteries expires in 2022, so the big Korean battery manufacturers like LG Chem and SK Innovation could start making their own iron-phosphate batteries in the very near future. Apple even sent a team to South Korea recently to line up suppliers for its EV, which will likely be built by Canada’s Magna International (MGA). Magna currently makes the Jaguar iPace SUV in Austria.

Solid-state batteries are also in the mix now. Solid-state batteries offer greater range due to higher energy density, as well as faster charging and safer operation. At the recent Pebble Beach car show, Audi introduced its next super EV, the Skysphere Concept. The EV is likely to use solid-state batteries from QuantumScape (QS). Audi is also expected to soon announce its Grandsphere flagship and versatile Urbansphere concept EVs.

If you’re interested in the names, I recommend you sign up today so you can read my Growth Investor Monthly Issue for September when it’s hot off the presses. Not only will I share the major positives in the market and my two solid-battery buys, but I will also release two brand-new dividend stock picks and my Top 3 list of dividend stocks on my Elite Dividend Payers Buy List.
