Actions of Medtronic outperformed Zacks’ medical products industry over the past year (+ 35.5% vs. + 12.4%). The Zacks analyst believes that all of the company’s major business groups have contributed to consistent revenue growth at CER, which also highlights sustainability across groups and regions.
Gross and operating margins showed considerable improvement in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. The results reflect a strong recovery in the impact of the pandemic on elective procedures that the company experienced in April 2020. Performance business, however, continues to be affected by deferred proceedings due to the pandemic, particularly in emerging markets.

Schwab stocks have gained + 24.8% in the past six months against the Zacks Investment Brokers industry gain of + 20.8%. Zacks analyst believes that the strategic buyouts have strengthened its position as a leading brokerage player, which will likely be earnings accretive, leading to cost savings as well.
The company has seen an increase in client assets and brokerage accounts thanks to the commission-free trading it offers. This should continue to improve his trading income. Interest rates close to zero and no chance of a hike in the short term are a major concern. The continued increase in operating expenses is also likely to hurt profitability.

Actions of Zoom video gained + 35.6% in the past three months against Zacks’ Internet software industry gain of + 14.6%. Zacks analyst believes that Zoom has benefited from strong demand for the company’s cloud-native video platform as a result of the surge in work from home and e-learning.
Its high-end should benefit from its constantly expanding clientele. The company’s efforts to eliminate security and privacy loopholes, along with the launch of new hardware and the Zoom From Home solution, are other major positives. Intense competition, however, from Microsoft and Cisco in the field of video communications remains a concern.

Bitcoin, like the internet itself, could change everything
Blockchain and cryptocurrency have sparked one of the most exciting talking points in a generation. Some call it “the internet of money” and predict that it could change the way money works forever. If this is true, it could do to banks what Netflix did to Blockbuster and Amazon to Sears. Experts agree that we are in the early stages of this technology and as it develops it will create several investment opportunities.
Zacks just revealed 3 companies that can help investors capitalize on the explosive profit potential of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with much less volatility than buying them directly.
