Stocks To Watch This Week

Stocks To Watch This Week

Last week, the market saw yet another glimpse of optimism as investors pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average higher, over 3%.

As the market embraces the hope for an economic rebound, here are stocks that may benefit.


Shares of Workday Inc (NASDAQ: WDAY), a software company whose offerings are used by 40% of the Fortune 500 and 50% of the Fortune 100 companies, are expected to rise as companies hone in on technology upgrades post-recovery. 

Dollar General 

Though Dollar General Corp (NYSE: DG) benefited from consumer stockpiling, the increase in sales is likely to parallel rising costs. The company's supply chain, as well as in-store efficiency, should dampen cost increases.

On Thursday, Inc (NYSE: CRM) launched Quick Start Commerce Solutions to help businesses set up online as quickly as possible. Demand for Salesforce products, as a result, is expected to grow. 

Costco Wholesale 

Retailing giant Costco Wholesale Corp (NASDAQ: COST) outperformed the recent market slump due to its strong operating trends.

Surging sales led to comparable core sales jumping 11% in the U.S. in April, with 88% in the online sales channel.

Ulta Beauty

Ulta Beauty Inc's (NASDAQ: ULTA) core makeup segment shrunk for several quarters, pre-COVID-19. With stores reopening, a demand rebound is expected to assist ULTA in restructuring itself for a solid 2021. 


Recent VMWare Inc (NYSE: VMW) innovations have made the company's products more attractive and affordable, increasing brand popularity amongst developers.


With shares rising ahead of earnings this week, Autodesk Inc (NASDAQ: ADSK) is expected to have held up well despite the challenging economic conditions and reduced demand metrics in March and April.
