Halliburton

Strong international operations are driving profitability at this services and equipment oil concern. North American rig counts have been depressed but should rebound as the drive towards domestic energy self-sufficiency strengthens.

Dycom Industries

Dycom is a telecom infrastructure provider whose primarily customers are the large telecommunications companies. As the desire for increased bandwidth increases, Dycom will benefit and we expect growth in revenues, earnings and cash flow to be robust.

Past Picks: October 24, 2012

AIG Inc.
Then: $34.93
Now: $51.94
Total return: +49.00 per cent

Qualcomm Inc.
Then: $57.63
Now: $68.73

Market outlook:

The political circus in Washington is between innings, so we expect the market to focus on corporate earnings and the health and prospects for business for the next few weeks. The earnings season is in the early stages but appears to be setting up for a better than expected result. Watch for earnings warnings for future quarters, based on worries that the political wrangling has affected confidence.
