Stock Opinions by Kourtney Gibson, President, Loop Capital Markets

BUY
You don't need to worry about them (earnings missed today), because the CEO is so strong. He's underpromising and over-delivering. The financial sector is an opportunity overall. Banks with a diversified business mix will do well, despite facing some challenges. She feels this way about Goldman Sachs, too.
Financial Services
BUY
She added to Block. Consumer balance sheets remain strong, despite slowing purchases in electronics and other big-ticket items. What to do? She is adding to her position. Block is undervalued in terms of fundamentals and sentiment. It's a quality name that will weather this storm long term

STRONG BUY
Great management and fine forward guidance. They just forecast double-digit profits going forwards, based on strong bookings and demand--and the business traveller hasn't come back yet. This is a long-term hold. People are tired of sitting at home.
Transportation
BUY
Trades at 1.1x book. They're not getting credit for their asset and wealth management businesses. The Q1 will be terrible for investment banks, but the rest of their businesses are the reasons why you own GS.
investment companies / funds
BUY
Holding 10% of a portfolio in Apple isn't a risk, if you manage a concentrated portfolio. After all, Apple is the most widely held stock in the market. She loves this and is adding to it to her personal portfolio. Warren Buffet owns a big holding in Apple. Also, Apple boasts 72% margins in their services business and is buying back shares, the most in a decade. Apple is confident in their future.

COMMENT
S&P hitting 5000 this year? Yes, it's possible the S&P can top 5,000 if the macro news is out of the way and we see strong earnings growth. People are making more and spending more money as more goods come in and this will raise prices--this is the cycle. This can be a dangerous cycle, but strong companies can outperform.

STRONG BUY
BOA just upgraded it and targets $191 It's the best media brand. Their theme parks have so much upside potential and will be the biggest surprise as the reopen continues. The Shanghai park will reopen. Disney is one to own even at the current price; it's not expensive and has a great balance sheet. An incredible business with great days ahead. One to buy and hold for a long, long time.

COMMENT
The market is already pricing in a 50-basis point hike on March 15, so the Fed has the option to do that or not. If not (and they hike 25 points instead), then they should communicate that appropriately. She doesn't think they should hike 50 points and to decide by basing it on data. Watch volatility in order to find opportunity in individual names.

BUY
In addition to rising rates, she also likes financials that have asset managers or investment arms or broker dealers. The more volatility we're seeing, those who trade stocks bonds traders make money on that flow, and so they will do better and get more trading volumes. Also, trading platforms (that make money on the trading of securities) will do well in the next cycle.
