Reporting some quarterly earnings of $1.74 per share, this giant drug maker company managed to still rake in over 30 cents over industry estimates.
Merck’s revenue also pulled a strong figure therefore increasing its year-end forecast. The sales of Merck’s Keytruda—a cancer drug—is also playing a role in the company’s sustained high revenue.
3M ( )
3M performed better during the most recent quarter of 2020 by earning $2.43 per share. 3M’s revenue also exceeded forecasts made by analysts at the start of the year. Despite a tricky period during the start of the pandemic when its stocks fell slightly, 3M’s stocks are expected to rise as more business and economies all around the world begins to reopen. Also, don’t forget that 3M is considered as “dividend king” as it has yielded an average of 3.5% the last several years, and is seen as stock that delivers a long-term dividend growth to investors.

Many financial analysts believe at the promising future of PayPal’s stocks, with most of them expecting the stock of PYPL to generate more than 40% increase to the level of around $280 from its current share value.

American International Group ( )
After the company reveals a planned leadership change, investors rallied behind AIG’s stocks helping it increase by 8% at the recent close of trading early this week. Although AIG President Peter Zaffino will not replace current CEO Brian Dupperreault until March 1, 2021, AIG is perceived by many as a company heading to the right direction especially after the company announced an intention to spin off its life and retirement insurance unit.
