Shares of Buy rated Intel have been strong performers this year (up nearly 9% year-to-date), but they have lagged other chipmakers. Estimates have started going up lately, reflecting improved outlook for the company's data center business and prospects in the cloud space. Intel has long struggled in the mobile space, but its investments in IoT, security and memory could pay off this year. Intel’s non-volatile memory business is poised to take off while it remains the unquestioned leader in the microprocessor market. Additionally, Intel’s development program where major architecture and cost constraints are upgraded every alternate year is also encouraging. (You can read the full research report on Intel here>>)

UnitedHealth shares have surged more than 19% year-to-date on continued momentum in the Medicaid and Medicare businesses. The analyst likes continued growth at Optum, with the Optum Rx sub-segment expected to benefit from the Catamaran acquisition. The Zacks analyst explains in today's research report the reasons why estimates are going up, pushing the stock to Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can read the full research report on UnitedHealth here>> )

Netflix shares have struggled this year on doubts about subscription growth, stiff competition and the investment incurred on original and acquired content. However, the Zacks analyst remains optimistic about the company's subscriber growth outlook and focus on producing more quality original content. Rapid international expansion is expected to provide a major avenue for growth while applications for both Android and Apple devices have helped it to expand its market share.
