Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Today's Research Daily features new research reports on 16 major stocks, including DISH Network (DISH), BCE Inc. (BCE), and Qualcomm (QCOM).

Shares of Strong Buy rated DISH Network have turned around lately (they are up almost 5% over the past month) after losing ground earlier. The Zacks analyst likes DISH’s efforts to diversify its business model from being a pure-play satellite-TV operator to an Internet TV operator. Further, DISH Network is poised to benefit from its recent launch of a new version of its Internet TV service -- Sling TV. Additionally, the company has a strong portfolio of wireless spectrums which can be monetized or can be used for installing mobile networks.  (You can read the full research report on DISH Network here>>)

BCE shares have surged 18% year-to-date, outperforming the broader market as well as its U.S. peers like AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) and others. The analyst likes BCE subsidiary Bell Canada’s leading position in the Canadian broadband communications market. Increasing deployment of Gigabit Fibe, 4G LTE mobile networks, upcoming 5G networks, IP phone services and post-paid businesses should help the company gain customers. The analyst discusses the pros & cons of investing in BCE shares at present and points out the near-term earnings imapct of the BCE's spending on employee skills, increase capital investments and reduce expenditures may impact the company’s financials and growth prospects if not executed properly.

Qualcomm’s shares have surged ahead of the broader market year-to-date, gaining more than 25%. The analyst likes Qualcomm’s leadership position in the global wireless baseband chipset market and its growing presence in related opportunities such as mobile computing and IoT. The company's new patent license agreements with Chinese smartphone makers should boost Qualcomm’s top line and also solidify its footing in the Chinese market. However, the company is facing increasing competition from MediaTek and Intel and has projected a soft revenue outlook for 2016.  (You can read the full research report on Qualcomm here>>)
