IB Net Payout Yields Model
After the close, FireEye (FEYE) released preliminary FQ3 revenues above the previous guidance while bookings were inline with guidance. The numbers aren't that impressive considering the company originally guided revenues below a consensus for the quarter of $229 million.
-The company posted early estimates for Q3 revenue "at or above the high end" of previous guidance for $217M-$221M, and billings to be within the range of $245M-$255M.
-The consensus expectations for Q3 revenues of $219.5M.
The stock is worth about $3 billion with slow growth and prospects of generating only $50 million in free cash flow this year. The cybersecurity company continues to go nowhere fast. FireEye likely rallies to $16-17, but the stock isn't going to $22 anytime soon as UBS recently speculated.
Investors should look to unload on any pop on these numbers.

Stocks to watch at week end: Lyft (LYFT) - the launch of Lyft Rentals isn't smart. The ridesharing service appears set to create another way to lose money. A prime benefit of the service is the door-to-door service where customers get a $20 ride credit each way. In essence, Lyft is giving away rides where the company already loses money in order to obtain what might only be a daily rental for $35. A lot of the service appears better for consumers, but the company is actually offering these ride credit discounts. Until Lyft can charge premium fees, avoid the stock. Canopy Growth (CGC) - the Ontario govt has approved a plan to license 20 stores a month starting next April.

Kohl's has activists wanting the company to spin off the e-commerce division to unlock value. The company already has plans to grow the business and activists have yet to show how a full omni-channel business can operate as two different companies. The stock is absurdly cheap at 7x EPS targets and Kohl's will repurchase over 15% of the outstanding shares this year. Looking for more investing ideas like this one?
