HSD – Adobe Systems $ADBE

Today’s Hot stock is Adobe Systems Incorporated (ADBE) Adobe soared 12.78% today on earning’s news. Adobe hit an all time high, despite the fact that their numbers weren’t stellar. All forward year numbers were below analyst consensus. Current quarter earnings were in line, however way below last year’s Q4 earnings, as well as revenue’s falling.

The news that really made the stock jump was their subscriber numbers for their creative cloud business. Their subscriber count jumped almost 39% to 1.439 million subscribers.

Adobe is an interesting play at this venture. With their transition into cloud they may be a good play, and with their subscriber increase this seems to be doing well for them. However the fundamental’s do not lie. We will see which prevails.

HSD – Facebook Inc $FB

The Hot Stock of the day yesterday was Facebook Inc (FB). Even on a down day Facebook was able to shine, up 4.96% yesterday.

Facebook has been doing quite well after bottoming this year. Their IPO was probably one of the biggest sources of debate last year. They were valued quite high with their IPO price and after their debut, they tanked. A combination of NASDAQ issues with the IPO itself, arguments that the underwriters were benefiting way to much from the IPO, and general market uncertainty as to whether Mark Zuckerberg could deliver on his promise of where the company was headed, and how they were going to make money.

They have generally settled at this current level, and have seen support at the 45 dollar range. If you are skeptical wait for a pullback, but otherwise keep on trucking. If Facebook’s earnings grow as expected, then they still have room to run.

HSD – Mastercard $MA

Hot stock of the day today was Mastercard (MA). While Mastercard may seem expensive. Most bros still see this company doing quite well, with them currently trading at a discount when comparing current PE to forward earnings.

All bros want their new phone, new TV, new gadget, new clothes, etc. With more and more spending on credit cards it’s only fitting that this would be a solid call. With consumer credit hitting an alltime high and coming up a hair over 6.0% growth from a year ago.

Mastercard just announced a 83% boost to their dividend, a $3.5 billion buyback, and a 10 for 1 stock split, in order to return more money to shareholders.
