3 FAANG Stocks That Score a ‘Perfect 10'
In the first week of September, the markets saw a sudden drop from peak values. That fall was most pronounced in the NASDAQ index, which dropped from 1,200 points - some 10% - in just 5 trading sessions. Since then, however, the situation has stabilized. Stocks have bounced up and down, but the NASDAQ has generally held steady at or near 11,000 for the past three weeks.The holding pattern is likely more important than the slide. It's lasted longer, and appears to represent a classic market correction. The NASDAQ's 5-month run to its September 2 all-time high left it somewhat overvalued, and it's now fallen back to a more sustainable level. This is borne out by a look at three major components of the index, members of tech's ‘FAANG' club.The FAANG stocks are Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google (Alphabet). They are the 800-pound gorillas of the tech world, companies of enormous size and scope, whose operations and market fluctuations have been a major driver to the NASDAQ, and the overall stock market, in recent years. And three of them have another important point in common, too: each gets a ‘Perfect 10' rating from the TipRanks Smart Score.The Smart Score rates every stock according to set of 8 factors that have historically correlated with future outperformance, and combines them into a simple 1 to 10 scale to indicate the stock's likely future course. Now let's see why these tech giants scored so highly, and what Wall Street's analysts have to say about it.Facebook (FB)First on our list is Facebook. The social media giant has spawned both an i

Dow industrials close about 330 points higher as Wall Street holds out hope for fresh round of coronavirus stimulus
U.S. stocks finished the session higher Wednesday, shaking off an unsettling presidential debate, to focus on the prospects of a new round of economic stimulus to help Americans and businesses climb from out of the depths of the coronavirus crisis. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed by about 330 points, or 1.2%, higher at 27,781, on a preliminary basis. The S&P 500 index finished up 0.8%, led by a 1.7% rally in health care , a 1.2% gain in financials and a 1.2% rise in consumer staples ; while the Nasdaq Composite Index ended the session up 0.7% on the session. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to forge a deal with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on a coronavirus relief package but the pair vowed to continue discussions in an attempt to make headway on a package. In corporate news, shares of data company Palantir Technologies finished the session up 31% in its direct listing on the New York Stock Exchange. Stocks began the day on an unsteady footing as investors parsed the import of a mostly acrimonious presidential debate performance between incumbent President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Gold futures fall for the month, edge higher for the quarter
Gold futures posted a loss for Wednesday's session, contributing to a decline for the month, but the precious metal notched an eighth straight quarterly gain. "The stats show that it was a great quarter for the metals, but September was a lousy month," said Brien Lundin, editor of Gold Newsletter. A "small uptick in real interest rates" was the primary reason for the month's loss. "Considering the blistering move gold had made earlier in the quarter to over $2,000 an ounce, and the fact that it had failed to build upon that rally, the minor rise in real rates was all that was needed to shake the weak hands out of the gold market and start a sell off," he said. December gold fell $7.70, or 0.4%, to settle at $1,895.50 an ounce. Based on the most-active contracts, prices fell 4.2% for the month, but gained 5.3% for the third quarter, according to Dow Jones Market Data.
