Stock Market - as of 3/22/2021 data

Reminder: These views are mine alone and should not be taken as financial advice. Investing can be extremely risky & speculative, and each individual should do their own due diligence and make their own decisions. These are simply interesting data points in my opinion.

For simplicity, "Cherrie's Ratings" of BUY, SELL, or HOLD are consistent with terminology used by other financial analysts. To reiterate, these are NOT instructions to readers - instead, these are my "what I would do right now" what-if scenarios.

Creative Working

Close Price: $670.00

1 yr low: $89.28

1 yr high: $900.40

Cherrie's Rating: BUY

Rationale: TSLA's current price is sitting comfortably below its 1 yr high while well above its 1 yr low, a sweet spot in my opinion. The company's potential for innovation, market share gains, and hopefully government contracts for green tech under a Biden administration is indicating opportunity for continued growth. Tesla's portfolio of products including batteries and solar provide further scalable opportunities for growth in the green tech space.

Startup

Close Price: $226.13

1 yr low: $42.33

1 yr high: $283.19

Cherrie's Rating: BUY

Rationale: SQ's current price is sitting comfortably below its 1 yr high while well above its 1 yr low, a sweet spot in my opinion. I believe that SQ's CashApp will drive customer retention and bring in more individuals, whether that's for e-payments or cryptocurrency & investing. CashApp is a one-stop-shop competitor to Venmo, Paypal, and Robinhood all-together, and allows SQ to introduce its entire portfolio of products to any Joe or Jane using the app - the more data points SQ has regarding a customer's e-payment & investing usage, the more targeted and mutually-beneficial it can advertise its other products like its Square Card Reader for businesses.

GOOG - Alphabet

Close Price: $2,038.59

1 yr low: $1,079.81

1 yr high: $2,152.68

Cherrie's Rating: HOLD

Rationale: GOOG's price is near its 52 week high, indicating that upside in the short term may be limited until there are further developments in earnings guidance and/or products. That being said, GOOG is a market leader in advertising that has enjoyed further growth in the ad-tech space given the pandemic's shift from physical-world ads to remote, online ads.

1 yr low: $339.17

1 yr high: $593.29

Cherrie's Rating: HOLD

Rationale: NFLX's price is near its 52 week high, indicating that upside in the short term may be limited until there are further developments in earnings guidance and/or products. That being said, NFLX is a market leader in streaming content that has enjoyed further growth in the online entertainment space given the pandemic's shift from physical-world theaters to remote, online movies and shows.

AMZN - Amazon

Close Price: $3,110.87

1 yr low: $1,885.78

1 yr high: $3,552.25

Cherrie's Rating: HOLD

Rationale: AMZN's price is near its 52 week high, indicating that upside in the short term may be limited until there are further developments in earnings guidance and/or products. That being said, AMZN is a market leader in e-commerce that has enjoyed further growth in the online marketplace space given the pandemic's shift from physical-world stores to remote, online shopping. Keeping an eye on AMZN's growth into streaming content (NFLX competitor) and e-health space.

1 yr low: $334.55

1 yr high: $1,499.75

Rationale: SHOP's price is near its 52 week high, indicating that upside in the short term may be limited until there are further developments in earnings guidance and/or products. That being said, SHOP is a market leader in e-commerce that has enjoyed further growth in the online marketplace space given the pandemic's shift from physical-world stores to remote, online shopping.

URI - United Rentals Inc.

Close Price: $311.48

1 yr low: $77.33

1 yr high: $330.79

Cherrie's Rating: HOLD

Rationale: URI's price is near its 52 week high, indicating that upside in the short term may be limited until there are further developments in earnings guidance and/or products. That being said, keeping an eye on the Biden administration's plans for infrastructure improvement as that may spur additional business in the equipment rental space. Also curious how the shift from online to physical world will change the construction industry once the U.S. starts moving back toward some semblance of pre-pandemic "normalcy" as vaccinations ramp up.

Confident Businesswoman

CHWY - Chewy

Close Price: $85.88

1 yr low: $30.02

1 yr high: $120.00

Cherrie's Rating: BUY

Rationale: CHWY's current price is sitting comfortably below its 1 yr high while well above its 1 yr low, a sweet spot in my opinion. Many individuals have become pet owners as the pandemic has gone on, and pets are generally a decade of pet-related purchases. I believe that CHWY's future is bright as consumers shift their purchases online, and I believe that FOMO on the love of a pet will lead to more individuals becoming first-time pet owners. Go pets!

CAT - Caterpillar

Close Price: $226.02

1 yr low: $95.17

1 yr high: $237.78

Cherrie's Rating: HOLD

Rationale: CAT's price is near its 52 week high, indicating that upside in the short term may be limited until there are further developments in earnings guidance and/or products. That being said, keeping an eye on the Biden administration's plans for infrastructure improvement as that may spur additional business in the construction space.

TMUS - T Mobile

Close Price: $126.11

1 yr low: $75.83

1 yr high: $135.54

Cherrie's Rating: HOLD

Rationale: TMUS's price is near its 52 week high, indicating that upside in the short term may be limited until there are further developments in earnings guidance and/or products. That being said, TMUS is a market leader in telecommunications that is leaning into its brand strength among millenials and Gen Z, and investing in 5G which I believe will soon be the expected data speed as more carriers add 5G to their product portfolios.

DIS - Disney

Close Price: $192.86

1 yr low: $91.80

1 yr high: $203.02

Cherrie's Rating: BUY

Rationale: Even though DIS's close price is near its 52 week high, I believe that DIS's market position as a streaming content leader with strongly followed franchises like Marvel's Avengers and Star Wars will continue to fuel better-than-market growth. Add to that growth the eventual reopening of DIS's theme parks as vaccinations are rolled out.
