Mobile payments giant PayPal (PYPL - Free Report) has soared more than 67% so far this year, and the stock is now resting comfortably near its all-time high. The company has an impressive earnings surprise history, as well as a Zacks Rank#1 (Strong Buy), but with shares at a new peak, PayPal will need to impress next week if it wants to climb higher.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, United (UAL - Free Report) is a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell). The airliner was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, as Houston is its second-largest hub. Year-over-year comparisons will be tough, and management has warned of a challenging quarter.
And next week’s most anticipated report is bound to be that of Netflix (NFLX - Free Report) . The video streaming pioneer is looking for strong growth in international revenues and important margin expansion, but investors will be wary of a possible subscriber plateau (also read: Netflix Q3 Earnings Preview: Here's What To Expect).
