New Research Reports for Alibaba, Halliburton and Time Warner

Today's Research Daily features new research reports on 16 major stocks, including Alibaba (NYSE:(BABA - Free Report) -Free Report), Time Warner (NYSE:(TWX - Free Report) -Free Report) and Halliburton (NYSE:(HAL - Free Report) -Free Report). These 16 reports have been hand-picked from the roughly 80 research reports issued by our analyst team today. You can see the complete list of today's research reports here >>>

Shares of Strong Buy rated Alibaba have been strong performers this year (they are up more than 29% year-to-date), with analysts steadily raising estimates for this year and next. Driving this momentum is the steadily improving outlook for China and Alibaba's dominant position in that market. The Zacks analyst likes the company’s dominance in the fast-growing mobile commerce market in China, its continued efforts to develop new products, international growth opportunities and strong financial position. Alibaba Group’s fiscal first-quarter results exceeded the Zacks Consensus Estimate. The solid growth in Alibaba’s China retail and mobile business as well as strength across most of the core operating metrics aided the results.

Shares of Buy rated Time Warner have handily outperformed the broader market as well as the media space (the stock is up more than 21% year-to-date) on greater appreciation for the company's proactive strategic initiatives in response to the evolving media landscape. These include investments in digital platforms like the Hulu stake, HBO GO & HBO NOW, the Flixter purchase and the device-agnostic UltraViolet digital movie technology. In a way, Time Warner has shown its willingness and ability to explore every possible avenue to monetize its substantial content. The fact that it has an impressive track record of earnings surprises and operating and capital efficiencies further add to the Time Warner story.

Halliburton’ s shares have gained a phenomenal 37% year-to-date. The analyst likes the Buy rated stock’s leading position in the North American oilfield services market, with particular emphasis on the unconventional shale plays. HAL has held up well amid the rig count carnage that has hit activity levels and pricing. This can be attributed to aggressive expense management. In fact, HAL is trying to use the challenges prevailing in the industry to its advantage, mainly by offering low cost solutions that will aid producers in churning out more by investing less.
