Shares of T-Mobile have outperformed the Zacks Wireless National industry year-to-date (+12.6% vs. +2.5%). The company is on track to complete the Sprint customer network migration mid-year and decommissioning by the end of the year. Its extended 5G range covers 315 million people, or 95% of Americans. Ultra Capacity 5G covers 225 million people and nearly 85% of T-Mobile customers. About 45% of postpaid customers use a 5G phone, and 5G devices account for more than half of total network traffic.

However, it operates in a fiercely competitive and nearly saturated U.S. telecommunications market. Low-cost plans for consumers and small businesses did not improve the bottom line. Promotional activities aimed at attracting rivals’ customers have hurt its profitability.

Shares of Deere outperformed the Zacks Manufacturing – Farm Equipment industry over the past year (+5.6% vs. +2.8%). The Zacks analyst believes the continued rise in commodity prices will continue to fuel demand for farm equipment, encouraging farmers to increase spending on new farm equipment. Replacement request to upgrade old equipment will support Deere’s superior results. Demand for agricultural and construction equipment will continue to be supported by positive fundamentals, including favorable crop prices, economic growth, and increased infrastructure spending in fiscal 2022.

Deere should benefit from growth in non-residential investment and strong order activity from independent rental companies. A focus on investing in new products equipped with the latest technology will automate farming, which will drive Deere’s growth. However, higher material and labor costs are likely to reduce the margin.

PayPal shares have fallen -64.8% over the past year against the -51.4% decline in the Internet – Software industry from Zacks, primarily reflecting a change in sentiment in the current rising market environment rate. The company’s increasing competition in the digital payment market poses a serious risk to the company’s position in the market. In addition, currency headwinds remain a concern. The stock has underperformed its industry year-to-date.

However, the first quarter results were driven by strong growth in total payment volume due to the net increase in new active accounts. The strengthening of customer engagement has been positive. In addition, the strong performance of Venmo and merchant services contributed well to the growth of POS. Moreover, the rise of digital payment due to the coronavirus pandemic remains a tailwind.

The Zacks analyst believes transaction revenue growth should continue to drive top line growth. Also, the strong momentum of peer-to-peer and PayPal Checkout experiences is a tailwind. PayPal’s growing traction in the US is a positive.
