3 "Strong Buy" Penny Stocks That Could Deliver Massive Returns
Investor focus has landed squarely on the surge in new COVID-19 cases and its threat to economic reopenings, but there's another possibility being ignored. According to Morgan Stanley equity strategist Mike Wilson, even though the market is expecting economic activity to decline, earnings could get a major boost."Cautious investors may be overlooking the potential for operating leverage to fuel an earnings rebound... Aggressive cost-cutting in a downturn is what creates the powerful operating leverage when the economy recovers," Wilson commented.While unemployment has skyrocketed during the coronavirus crisis, Wilson argues operating leverage was already dropping before the pandemic's onset. "It's also a classic feature of late-cycle economic expansions. My point is that many companies were already exhibiting negative operating leverage pre-COVID-19. This gives me confidence that Q2 will likely be the trough for earnings growth," he explained.Bearing this in mind, some investors are on the hunt, looking to snap up compelling names before shares re-embark on an upward trajectory. For the more risk-tolerant, focus has locked in on penny stocks, or tickers trading for less than $5 per share. The appeal is clear; the bargain price tag means you can get more bang for your buck and even what feels like inconsequential share price appreciation can result in huge percentage gains.What's the flip side? Minor share price depreciation can fuel major percentage losses. By nature of these massive movements, penny stocks are no

3 Safe Dividend Stocks Yielding 5%; Piper Sandler Says ‘Buy'
‘Be safe' has become a standard greeting these days, an expression of concern between friends during a time of pandemic disease and widespread civic disturbances. It's also a piece of wise advice for investors. Mixed messages from the markets are confusing investors - some indexes, the Dow Jones particularly but to a lesser extent the S&P 500, are indicating that we've reached plateau in the bull rally, while the NASDAQ continues its upward tear.Dividend stocks have long been a traditional ‘safe zone' for investors looking for some portfolio protection. While these stocks typically offer a lower-than-average share appreciation, the dividend makes up for that by ensuring a steady income stream no matter how the shares move. The corona crisis has upended some of these calculations, however; as economies tanks and markets fell, companies tightened their belts and hunkered down - and many once-reliable dividends were slashed back, or suspended, or saw their payout ratios skyrocket as earnings fell.But not every stock felt the hurt. Analysts from investment firm Piper Sandler have done the legwork for dividend investors. They've scoured the market, and found safe dividend stocks. These are equities which have remained steady during the crisis - not cuts for suspensions here. And better - their payout ratios, a key metric indicating the ability of the company to maintain the dividend - are below 50%. And finally, these are stocks that Piper Sandler gives a Buy rating, with plenty of upside potential. Using TipRank

Tesla taps brake on massive stock rally
Shares of Tesla surged 16% early in the session before joining a sell-off along with other big-name Nasdaq stocks, including Amazon , Microsoft and Nvidia , that have outperformed in recent months. With investors betting Tesla could show a quarterly profit in its July 22 report and potentially join the S&P 500 index, traders at one point on Monday paid $1,794.99 per share, a premium of almost $300 over Tesla's previous closing price. Only the second daily decline for Tesla in 10 sessions came after the company on Saturday cut the price of its Model Y sport utility vehicle by $3,000, just four months after its launch, as it tries to maintain sales momentum in the COVID-19 pandemic.

UPS: Can New CEO Improve Profit Margins in B2C Segment? Analyst Weighs In
Unlike other industries, the coronavirus' impact on parcel delivery services has been more nuanced. The drop in volume for the traditionally more profitable B2B segment has been countered by the massive increase in B2C deliveries, which are typically more margin tight. So much so, these companies are finding it difficult to meet demand.This is true of package delivery giant United Parcel (UPS). In normal times, the mix between B2C and B2B is evenly split, but by the end of March, the pandemic resulted in the B2C segment boasting 70% of delivery volume.In a recent note to clients, Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry ponders how the increasing volume in a less profitable segment impacts UPS.Landry said, "UPS is at an existential crossroads with COVID having pulled forward what was initially expected to be 8-10 years of B2C/residential mix into just a few short months… The margin erosion from higher cost B2C has long been problematic - amplified by the massive upswing in capex required to more efficiently handle these volumes - but the good news, in our view, is that the profound pandemic-driven acceleration in mix will force a permanent, structural pricing tailwind in the domestic parcel market."The other good news, according to Landry, is United Parcel's recent appointment of new CEO Carol Tomé. The ex-Home Depot CFO brings with her extensive experience, a proven track record, as well as a reputation for improving performance. Tomé was instrumental in making Home Depot one of the be
