VIDEO: 6 Stocks in 60 Seconds

Alcoa (NYSE:AA[1]) didn’t post a blowout quarter, but it did manage to beat on earnings and maintain its demand outlook despite missed revenue — a good sign for the rest of the market[2].

JCPenney (NYSE:JCP[3]) finally let Ron Johnson go[4] after 17 months, but only after sales plummeted, the stock plummeted and things just looked pretty dismal all around. And despite the move … well, the company still looks pretty bad[5].

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT[6]) took a beating after being blamed for falling PC sales[7], but InvestorPlace Editor Jeff Reeves says it’s still a buy[8].

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB[9]) released ‘Facebook Home’[10] last week, but also found more ways to exploit users[11], as Tom Taulli put it, with its new ad system.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL[12]) stock has fallen pretty darn far — as seen in this infographic[13] — but some believe it can hit $500 again … if things go as planned[14].

SeaWorld will join the small circle of publicly traded theme parks soon, issuing 20 million shares[15] on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker “SEAS.”
