GS, Chevron Corp. CVX, ConocoPhillips COP, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. REGN and Exxon Mobil Corp. XOM.Here are highlights from Friday’s Analyst Blog:Major Stock Indexes Back Toward Record Highs: 5 Must-Buy StocksWall Street has returned to its north bound journey as bulls are roaring in October after September’s market mayhem. On Oct 20, the Dow recorded a fresh all-time high of 35,669.69 surpassing the previous high recorded on Aug 16. On Oct 21, the S&P 500 registered a new all-time high of 4,551.44, outpacing the previous high posted on Sep 2. The Nasdaq Composite is currently just 1.2% below its all-time high recorded on Sep 7.Month to date, the Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite, have rallied 5.2%, 5.6% and 5.3%, respectively. This performance is impressive as October is also known for its historically volatile trading pattern. In September, the three major stock indexes — the Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite — plummeted 4.3%, 4.8% and 5.3%, respectively.An impressive start to the third-quarter 2021 earnings season and a series of solid economic data released in October confirmed the unhindered recovery of the U.S. economy amid prolonged supply-chain disruptions, labor shortage and higher inflationary pressure.Impressive Start to Q3 Earnings SeasonThe third-quarter 2021 earnings season has picked up from where it ended in the second quarter.  We are in the early stage of the reporting cycle and results are highly encouraging. Overall earnings of corporate America are likely to remain robust after skyrocketing in the second quarter.As of Oct 21, 100 S&P 500 companies reported third-quarter results. Total earnings of these companies are up 45.3% year over year on 16.6% higher revenues with 87% beating EPS estimates and 75% surpassing revenue estimates.At present, total third-quarter earnings of the market's benchmark — the S&P 500 Index — are projected to jump 31.5% from the same period last year on 14.3% higher revenues. This suggests a steady improvement from 26.1% earnings growth on 14% higher revenues, estimated at the beginning of the reporting cycle.  Strong Economic DataSeveral economists and financial experts have raised their eyebrows regarding the continuation of U.S. recovery after nonfarm payrolls measurably failed to meet consensus estimates in the two consecutive months of August and September. Despite this, the unemployment rate dropped sharply to 4.8% in September from 5.2% in August.However, weekly jobless claims stayed at the low-end of the pandemic era over the last three months. Initial jobless claims fell below 300,000 in the last two reported weeks. This is the best level since Mar 14, 2020, just before the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States.The Institute of Supply Management reported that both manufacturing and services PMIs showed exceptional results in September. Robust data for both manufacturing and services sectors will eventually lead to strong economic growth. Notably, the services sector accounts for 70% of the U.S. GDP while the manufacturing sector commands around 12% of economic activities.  Retail sales in September rose 0.7% in contrast to the consensus estimate of a decline of 0.1%. Moreover, the data for August was revised upward to 0.9% from 0.7% reported earlier. Year over year, retail sales climbed 13.9% in September.Core retail (excluding auto) sales in September rose 0.8%, beating the consensus estimate of 0.5%. Moreover, the data for August was revised upward to 2% from 1.8% reported earlier. Year over year, core retail sales jumped 15.6% in September.Retail sales rose steadily despite the termination of the weekly unemployment benefit on Sep 6. This is important since retail sales consist of a major part of consumer spending, the largest driver of the U.S. economy. The main reason for the strong retail sales data was a sharp decline in the Delta variant cases of the COVID-19 infection.Our Top PicksWe have narrowed down our search to five stocks that are members of any of the above-mentioned three major stock indexes.
