Consumers Remain Confident: Buy These 5 Top-Rated Picks







Swarup Gupta

ZacksJun 28, 2017 4:43 PM

Comment

The Consumer Confidence index rose in June, defying expectations of a decline. This comes as a welcome surprise for market watchers, who have received dismal tidings about the economy one after another, over the past few weeks. The most recent example of these reports is the one on durable orders released on Monday that triggered a flight to safer assets.

But consumer confidence data indicates that though consumers have adopted a cautious outlook, they remain optimistic about the economy’s fortunes. The Fed’s most recent pronouncements on these issues have also been positive, with both the Fed Chair and a key official weighing in on the necessity of rate hikes. This is why investing in stocks gaining from consumers’ optimism looks like a smart option at this time.

Consumer Confidence Bucks the Trend

Defying the spate of disappointing reports on the economy, the Consumer Confidence index rebounded to increase from 117.6 in May to 118.9 in June. The Present Situation Index also rose from 140.6 to 146.3. However, the Expectations Index slipped from the level of 102.3 recorded in May to 100.6. Meanwhile, consumers’ estimation of prevailing business conditions has also improved this month.

The Conference Board’s Director of Economic Indicators said that consumers’ outlook about the economy touched a near 16-year high in June. Additionally, even though consumers believe that the pace of growth may remain slow, they expect economic expansion to continue unhindered. Their plans to buy such capital goods as homes and automobiles remain unchanged. Meanwhile, plans to buy purchase major appliances have actually increased.

Strong Labor Market Powering Gains

A strong labor market is widely believed to be the primary reason for consumers’ continuing optimism. One of the most closely watched components of the consumer confidence report is a metric known as the labor market differential. This measure is derived using data from respondents who believe jobs are in abundance and those who think they are tough to secure. In May, the survey’s labor market differential registered the second best reading in 16 years. (Read: 5 Top Ranked Stocks to Buy as Consumer Spending Expands)

This metric has undergone a further improvement in June, increasing to 14.8 points. This is the highest level witnessed since Aug 2001. Previously, labor market differential has also been utilized by *** Yellen to gauge the unemployment rate. Leading economists believe that its current level should signify that the economy is nearing full employment. Needless to say, such a state of affairs will only spur further wage gains and consequently higher consumer expenditure.

Fed Officials Remain Cautious but Confident

Several Fed officials have expressed doubts over the need for a rate hike amid conflicting signals over the health of the economy. However, San Francisco Fed President John Williams snapped this chain of doubt on Monday, emphasizing the need to increase rates in a gradual manner. Quite like the Fed Chair, Williams thinks that recent disappointing data on inflation is transitory in nature.

Williams believes that inflation will hit the Fed’s 2% target by 2018. Fed Chair *** Yellen also provided no indications about a change in the central bank’s approach on monetary policy. Yellen did emphasize the need for gradual rate hikes and acknowledged prohibitive asset valuations. But her stance remains one which is in favor of monetary tightening.

Our Choices

Data on consumer confidence indicates that the economy’s engine of growth, consumer spending, is likely to remain strong in the near future. A strong labor market is helping to boost consumers’ purchasing power.

With the economy at full employment and wage rises continuing at a steady pace, investing in consumer discretionary stocks seems to be a prudent option. However, picking winning stocks may be difficult.

This is where our VGM score comes in. Here V stands for Value, G for Growth and M for Momentum and the score is a weighted combination of these three scores. Such a score allows you to eliminate the negative aspects of stocks and select winners. However, it is important to keep in mind that each Style Score will carry a different weight while arriving at a VGM score.



We have narrowed down our search to the following stocks, each of which has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and a good VGM score. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW is the largest provider of weight control programs in the world.

Weight Watchers International has a VGM Score of B. The company has expected earnings growth of 32% for the current year. The stock has returned 179.6% over the last one year, outperforming the Zacks Consumer Services - Miscellaneous industry, which has gained 27.1% over the same period.

Maintaining weight at a healthy level can be challenging for some people owing to complex genetic system of the body. Medical condition, lifestyle, and diet, among others are some of the factors that may contribute to weight gain in people. As per World Health Organization, the obese population has doubled since 1980. In 2014, approximately 13% of the world’s population, that is, more than 600 million adults were obese. Additionally, obesity is linked to more number of deaths worldwide than underweight. However, obesity is preventable and changes in diet coupled with fitness/physical activities can help in cutting down extra fat. Severe obesity can be treated through weight loss surgery (Gastric Bypass Surgery and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy).

The term coined by the media “Obesity Epidemic” which talks about the major medical problems faced due to obesity such as chronic disease and disability. This has raised alarms to the government where they are forced to take actions against this rising problem. The WHO initiated public awareness campaigns in the 1990s and had been continuously developing strategies to make better and easier health choices.

Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) Showing Signs of Potential Bullish Momentum

July 17, 2017 BVN Staff Writer







Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) shares are being placed on chartists radar as the recent share price of 35.77 is holding above the balance step moving average.

The balance step is a simple Moving Average calculated from last 5 Balance Points (MA/3),5) of the weekly period bar plotted in step formation on the daily chart. This chart is used to project 1 bar forward (one day). The weekly steps can be used to determine a near-term trend. When the price is above, this typically indicates a bullish trend. When the price is below the Balance Step, this generally spells a bearish trend.

Taking a look at some additional indicators, we can take a look at the share strength. In terms of Relative Strength Index for Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW), the 14-day reading is currently noted at 74.52, the 7-day is 77.79, and the 3-day is sitting at 89.70. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a very popular momentum indicator used for technical analysis. The RSI can help show whether the bulls or the bears are currently strongest in the market. The RSI may be used to help spot points of reversals more accurately. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder. As a general rule, an RSI reading over 70 would signal overbought conditions. A reading under 30 would indicate oversold conditions.

In terms of CCI levels, Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) currently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 130.30. Investors and traders may use this indicator to help spot price reversals, price extremes, and the strength of a trend. Many investors will use the CCI in conjunction with other indicators when evaluating a trade. The CCI may be used to spot if a stock is entering overbought (+100) and oversold (-100) territory. The 14-day ADX is presently 51.06. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A level under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available.

Investors may be studying other technical indicators like the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. A common look back period is 14 days. Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW)’s Williams %R presently stands at -1.91. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation. Looking at some moving average levels, the 200-day is at 16.96, the 50-day is 28.59, and the 7-day is sitting at 34.76. Moving averages can help identify trends and price reversals. They may also be used to help spot support and resistance levels. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. A certain stock may be considered to be on an uptrend if trading above a moving average and the average is sloping upward. On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward.

9-08-2017
De Amerikaanse mediafiguur Ophra Winfrey is het gezicht van een nieuwe reeks soepen en bijgerechten van de
voedingsfabrikant Kraft Heinz. Met de producten hoopt Kraft Heinz een stap naar omzetgroei te zetten.



Al sinds de fusie van Kraft en Heinz in 2015, getriggerd door de investeringsmaatschappij 3G en superbelegger Warren Buffett, kan het bedrijf geen omzetgroei meer voorleggen. Kraft Heinz hoopt nu de naamsbekendheid van Winfrey, die roem verwierf via de ‘Oprah Winfrey Show’ op televisie, te verzilveren om de verkoop op te krikken.

Het bedrijf zet de producten, 'O, That's Good' gedoopt, in de markt als ‘voedzaam’, zonder kunstmatige smaak- of kleurstoffen. ‘Ik hou van gezond eten uit de tuin. Toen Kraft Heinz me benaderde, trok het mijn aandacht om voedzame tussendoortjes meer toegankelijk te maken voor iedereen’, aldus Winfrey.

De ‘voedzame’ soep en andere bijgerechten liggen in lijn van eerdere activiteiten van Oprah voor een ander merk: Weight Watchers. Winfrey nam in 2015 een belang van ongeveer 10 procent in de Amerikaanse dieetclub en ging ook figureren als gezicht van het merk. Die aanpak legde Weight Watchers geen windeieren. In het tweede kwartaal van dit jaar klom het aantal leden van de dieetclub met 20 procent. Dat resulteerde in een omzetgroei van 12 procent. De aandelen van de dieetclub noteren dit jaar al 300 procent hoger.

Kraft Heinz hoopt dat Oprah haar trucje zal herhalen. Met de voedzame soepen en bijgerechten geeft de voedingsreus andermaal aan dat hij meer gezonde voeding in zijn portfolio wil. Eerder dit jaar lanceerde de voedingsproducent een meer ‘biologische’ lijn van zijn Capri-Sun-fruitsappen en verwijderde hij een aantal controversiële smaakstoffen uit het hotdogmerk Oscar Mayer.

Near-Term Bullish Signal Identified For Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) Shares

August 21, 2017 Sarah Dixon






Shares of Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) are heading in a near-term positive direction as the most recent close of the company has stayed above the Balance Step. The Balance Step reading takes into account the last 5 balance points of the weekly period plotted in step formation on a daily chart.

Some investors may be struggling after adding the wrong stocks to the portfolio. Creating a specific plan for investing may help turn the ship around. The stock market is still producing plenty of green arrows, and investors need to be able to capitalize. It is quite reasonable to be optimistic about the investment environment heading into the second half of the year. The next couple of weeks may be the perfect time for investors to put the pedal down and try to develop a strategy that will beat the market over the next quarter. Most investors realize that there are no certainties when it comes to equity investing. It is never a guarantee that a stock or an index will go up or down from one day to the next. Investors who prepare themselves for any scenario should be in a much better place than those who don’t.

When applying indicators for technical analysis, traders and investors might want to look some additoinal indicators such as the ATR or Average True Range. The current 14-day ATR for Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) is currently sitting at 2.02. The ATR basically measures the volatility of a stock on a day-to-day basis. The average true range is typically based on 14 periods and may be calculated daily, weekly, monthly, or intraday. The ATR is not considered a directional indicator, but it may reflect the strength of a particular move.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) is sitting at 45.17. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend.

Checking in on some other technical levels, the 14-day RSI is currently at 70.01, the 7-day stands at 68.34, and the 3-day is sitting at 59.06. Many investors look to the Relative Strength Index (RSI) reading of a particular stock to help identify overbought/oversold conditions. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970’s. Wilder laid out the foundation for future technical analysts to further investigate the RSI and its relationship to underlying price movements. Since its inception, RSI has remained very popular with traders and investors. Other technical analysts have built upon the work of Wilder. The 14-day RSI is still a widely popular choice among technical stock analysts.

Investors may be watching other technical indicators such as the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. A common look back period is 14 days. Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW)’s Williams %R presently stands at -11.27. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation.

Taking a closer look from a technical standpoint, Weight Watchers International Inc (WTW) presently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 50.57. Typically, the CCI oscillates above and below a zero line. Normal oscillations tend to stay in the range of -100 to +100. A CCI reading of +100 may represent overbought conditions, while readings near -100 may indicate oversold territory. Although the CCI indicator was developed for commodities, it has become a popular tool for equity evaluation as well.
