Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2021

The Q4 2016 earnings report forsmall capTASER International, Inc (NASDAQ: TASR) is scheduled forafter the marketcloses onWednesday (February 28th). Police controversies have led police departments to look fornon-lethal methods to subdue suspects with TASER Internationalbeating expectations for Q3 earnings. Oppenheimers Andrew Uerkwitz and team commented:

TASER has posted three straight quarters that handily beat top-line consensus. However, margin expansion remains elusive (revenue up 31% ytd; EPS down 26% ytd) as the company continues to invest in body camera, ev.com, dash cam, and now record management systems. We believe this is the right strategy to become a technology leader to police departments, but it will require patience, as agencies are slow to change. As for the quarter, Axon added two more major departments (Cinci, Atlanta) and EV.com revenues nearly doubled, a result of shrinking the gap between booked and active seats (and some true-up). Mgmt. announced that CFO Dan Behrendt will be stepping down (but remaining on until post-10-K filing) after 12 years with TASR.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Utility stocks are generally considered conservative investments that reward shareholders over the long term with sizable dividends that grow slowly and steadily over time. With the S&P 500 Index’s yield hovering around 2%, the bar for yield is set pretty low today. That said, investors should think twice before jumping at utilities like UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI), Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE:ATO), and MGE Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGEE), which offer little if any yield advantage over an S&P 500 Index fund.
