Friday Night's Show Highlights:

Definitely wait to see if opportunities present, then maybe do some buying!

Friday, July 29, 2016

Note: There was no 8/19 show as there was only Olympic coverage instead. We look forward to providing you with the Friday recap on 8/26. Thank you.

Game Plan!Jim: quote markYou thought we were done with earnings. You thought, with this big week now behind us, we can finally sit back and relax and do some thinking. Forget about it!

quote markSure, next week starts quiet enough. We've got Vulcan Materials kicking things off on Monday. I think this maker of aggregates, also known as stone, is going to tell a pretty darn good story. You see Vulcan does well when there's construction in the country, and when there are highway bills being passed. Right now, we've got both. I'm looking for a positive story that can reverberate to Caterpillar, which is a red hot stock now, precisely because construction is booming.

quote mark I know that many of you at home are hungry for yield, which is why I frequently get calls about Frontier Communications. That's a plain old telephone company with more than an 8% dividend yield that reports on Monday after the close. You know that I don't like to reach for income, though. And I think if you own Frontier stock, you are definitely reaching. Too much risk for this guy. I prefer Verizon. Less risk, more growth with Verizon. Tuesday is big. We get results from Procter & Gamble, Cummins, Pfizer and CVS, all in the morning before the bell, and that's a lot to keep track of. I think the best of the lot will be Pfizer, which has a solid dividend, decent growth and a nice pipeline...

Lightning RoundTonight's Lighting Round Picks: 

  Dollar Tree, Inc. (DLTR)

Jim: quote markOh my God, you know how much we like that stock. Buy, buy, buy! We have been recommending that, and it just keeps going higher and higher and higher. I don't want to give up on it. Technology related real estate is very hot.
Note: These Lightning Round picks are from the last live Lightning Round on 7/1.

  Chegg, Inc. (CHGG)

Jim: quote markYou know Chegg, a five dollar stock, can't really get out of its own way. I can't. There's too many other growth stocks I'd rather see you in. Sorry.

  NXPI Semiconductor (NXPI)

Jim: quote markYeah, people are giving up on NXP. We had the company on. We decided we liked it after listening. The stock has come down a great deal, so we have been buying it for our charitable trust. And there's no doubt about it, NXPI is in the sweet spot. Remember, because they are in the auto, not just the cell phone.
