Netflix Dreams Big: 6 Stocks in 60 Seconds

Checking in with our Best Stocks of 2013[1] contest, Charles Sizemore’s pick, Daimler (DDAIF[2]), recently jumped from seventh place into a second-place tie with Louis Navellier’s Sherwin-Williams (SHW[3]). Both have pocketed 20% year-to-date returns in pocket, but are lagging InvestorPlace Editor Jeff Reeves’ pick of Intel (INTC[4]) as we near the halfway point.

More reading about the contest:

Starbucks (SBUX[9]) announced yesterday that it plans to post calorie counts[10] for beverages on all menu boards … even in places it is not yet required. The coffee chain is outpacing the broader market with a 25% climb in the books so far in 2013.

Relatively recent IPO[11] Restoration Hardware (RH[12]) reported better-than-expected earnings late last week and gained 30% during the past five days as a result[13]. The stock has also more than doubled since the start of the year.

Netflix (NFLX[14]) also improved this week thanks to news that it has inked a multiyear deal with DreamWorks Animation (DWA[15]) for a series of original programming. Like Restoration Hardware, NFLX shares also have more than doubled year-to-date.

Terex (TEX[16]) has shed double digits over the past week. Why? The heavy equipment operator slashed its full-year forecast thanks to slower growth in North America and other parts of the world. InvestorPlace contributor Will Ashworth still sees more upside[17] for other names in the industry, though.

Finally, Duke Energy (DUK[18]) announced that current CFO Lynn Good will become its new CEO[19]. For more news from the corner office, check out our Dow Leaderboard[20] or CEOs & Corporate Leadership[21] page.
