Office solutions maker Xerox is moving into the health analytics business. Will it help lift the company's stock?

Xerox (XRX) is hovering near yearly lows while taking steps to change its operations. Even though the stock pays out an annual dividend yield of 2.74 percent, it is trading between $9.98 and $10.17, which is close to its 52-week low of $9.62.

On August 24, the company announced the acquisition of RSA Medical, a firm that manages member risks for health and life insurance companies. RSA Medical’s analytics focuses on population health, allowing the company to detect and predict medical conditions based on available data. Xerox said the purchase will improve predictive analytics offerings in the healthcare sector.

Global health analytics is a rapidly expanding market, with projections placing its size anywhere from $18.7 billion in 2020 to $32.4 billion in 2022. This year, health analytics is expected to rake in around $5.5 billion to $5.8 billion.

The RSA Medical acquisition isn't Xerox's only move into healthcare. On Tuesday, the company said it had acquired inVentiv Patient Access Solutions (iPAS). iPAS handles drug reimbursements and patient information for 17 pharmaceutical companies, performing the leg work for handling  patients’ medication requirements.

New sedans aren't popular. Spanking new light trucks are, and they lifted Ford and Fiat Chrysler's August sales.

Consumers have put the brakes on buying sedans, opting for light trucks instead. In August, US sales of passenger cars tumbled 10 percent from a year earlier to 690,000 while sales of light trucks rose 9 percent to almost 890,000.

The mounting demand for pickup trucks, SUVs and the like resulted in single-digit gains for Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU). A 5 percent spike in F-Series truck sales, which includes the redesigned aluminum F-150 pickup, contributed to a 6 percent bump in Ford's total sales. Fiat Chrysler posted a 2 percent overall increase, which was driven by an 18 percent and 6 percent hike in Jeep and Ram sales, respectively.

General Motors (GM) didn't fare quite as well. The company saw a 0.7 percent decline in sales. However, the biggest loser was sedan-reliant Toyota (TM) with an 8.8 percent plunge.

The August sales figures are encouraging for Ford and Fiat Chrysler. F-150 sales fell by 25,000 in the second quarter from a year ago and didn't contribute much to the automaker's 44 percent increase in profit. August's figures suggest that the turnaround Ford execs expected to see once production ramped up is taking place. Furthermore, in July, Fiat Chrysler revised its full-year revenue guidance upwards to over 110 billion euros from the previously forecast 108 billion euros.

Fewer private sector jobs were added last month, with the professional and business services industry adding the most.

The August ADP National Employment Report came out Wednesday morning, and it showed that the non-farm private sector added 190,000 jobs. While that figure was up from the 177,000 reported in July, it fell short of economists' projection of a 201,000 increase in private payrolls. 

Small businesses (under 50 employees) added 85,000 jobs, medium businesses (50 to 499 employees) added 66,000 jobs and large businesses (500 employees or more) added 40,000 employees. The services sector posted a gain of 173,000 jobs, with the professional and business services industry contributing the most jobs at 29,000.

Since professional and business services saw the biggest uptick in added jobs in August, here's a list of high-growth business services stocks that are expected to see a 25 percent-plus increase in earnings this year.

In addition, each stock has consistently topped quarterly earnings expectations over the past year, with an average earnings surprise of at least 5 percent. This doesn't mean that the stocks will necessarily meet or top the consensus estimate for full-year EPS growth, but exploring each stock's financials further could paint a more detailed picture.

After a stellar Q2, Home Depot is $10 below its 52-week high amid the market sell-off. How does its future look?

After dipping as at around $110 during the 1000-plus point Dow plunge last Monday and rising to $116 at the end of the week, shares of Home Depot (HD) are down once again due to Tuesday’s broad selloff. Nevertheless, a solid second quarter, steady dividend and growing e-commerce sales are some of the reasons Home Depot has a bright future ahead.

Home Depot reported second quarter results on August 18. The home improvement company said it same-store sales by 4.2 percent over the last year, beating expectations of a 3.5 percent increase. Total revenue grew to $24.83 billion from $23.81 billion, with U.S. sales increasing 5.7 percent. Earnings were $1.71 per share, up from $1.52 per share a year ago. Home Depot’s lowering of costs by 10 basis points to 17.3 percent helped boost its results.

According to Thomson Reuters, the consensus analyst estimate was earnings of $1.71 per share and revenue of $24.69 billion.

On August 20, Home Depot declared a $0.59 per share quarterly dividend, which yields 2.01 percent. The rate may seem low, but Home Depot’s underlying business is very attractive. There is growing demand for home renovation projects in the United States. In August,  the National Association of Home Builders Market Index, which measures confidence among single-family homebuilders, rose 1 point to 61—its highest level since 2005.

Furthermore, obtaining credit is easier than ever for consumers, thanks to low interest rates. Bank of America (BAC)'s customers, for example, increased its loan balances by 3 percent to $127 billion in the second quarter.

Despite the stock price approaching a yearly high, Home Depot appears to be a long-term play. The stock has more than doubled over the past 10 years.

In its second-quarter earnings release, Home Depot also revised its guidance for 2015 upwards. Home Depot now expects sales growth between 5.2 percent and 6 percent, same-store sales growth between 4.1 percent and 4.9 percent and diluted EPS growth between 13 percent and 14 percent, placing full-year earnings in the range of $5.31 to $5.36 per share.

By comparison, Wal-Mart (WMT) is struggling. The big box retailer faces competition from Amazon.com (AMZN), and costs are on the rise after the company raised employee wages.  Wal-mart already lowered its full-year guidance last month. It now expects earnings of $4.40 to $4.70 per share, down from the previously forecast $4.70 to $5.05 per share.

Despite expanding in June, Canada's economy shrank again in the second quarter, which means it's in a recession.

Canada has joined Brazil as the latest major economy to enter a recession. Statistics Canada revealed Tuesday morning that gross domestic product fell by an annualized rate of 0.5 percent in the second quarter. The agency also revised its first-quarter figure downwards to a 0.8 percent contraction from the previously stated 0.6 percent. 

As the world's seventh-largest exporter of crude oil, Canada has suffered from the drop in oil prices. Output from the mining, quarrying and oil and gas extraction sector plunged 4.5 percent in the second quarter, with a 5.7 percent drop in the non-conventional oil extraction industry—due to shutdowns and production problems—driving most of the loss. 

Advantage Oil & Gas (AAV), Enerplus Corporation (ENF) and Penn West Petroleum (PWE) saw the biggest drop in quarter-over-quarter sales within the Canadian oil and gas drilling and exploration industry. Sales fell by 51.60 percent, 39.30 percent and 44.70 percent, respectively.

And after rallying for three days straight, crude oil rolled back its 27.5 percent gain—its largest in dollar terms since February 2011—with a 5.3 percent decline as of 10:38 AM EST Tuesday morning. There's also the issue of production problems at Canadian Oil Sands's synthetic crude oil processing facility and Nexen Energy's oil-sands plant in northern Alberta. The temporary closing of both facilities and fears of diminishied shipments sent prices for Canadian synthetic crude oil up on Monday.

On the plus side, the Canadian economy grew by 0.5 percent in June, which could mean that the recession will be short-lived.

Computer processor maker Intel is trying something different and investing in the new hot thing: drones.

Intel (INTC) is branching out outside of its core competency of semiconductor chips. The firm has decided to invest in the drone market. Even though the investment is small, the potential is great. GoPro (GPRO) is also getting into this market. 

Intel said on August 26 that it is investing $60 million in Yuneec, a Chinese drone manufacturer. The company explained the decision in a video announcement, describing it as a means to help develop a future in which a smart and connected world exists. To Intel, this includes the usage of drones. Intel’s investment ensures Yuneec may one day incorporate Intel’s chips in future solutions.

The company is also partnering with 3D Robotics in developing Edison, a microcomputer the size of a postage stamp. Edison’s size would suit drones since it takes up little space while sacrificing  minimal computing power. 3D Robotics and Intel said Edison would track people and objects visually instead of using a GPS. The pair also envision scalable solutions for drones where the chip is customized and adapted as required.

Intel is not the only semiconductor firm investing in the drone market. Qualcomm (QCOM) invested $50 million in 3D Robotics this past year in February.

Intel’s investment will take time to bear fruit. In the near term, its growth will come from the release of its Skylake CPU family of chips. The desktop and mobile processors are much faster than previous generation chips. Skylake chips also overclock—operate more quickly than the hardware’s specified clock frequency—well, which should appeal to the enthusiast market.
