Shares of Apple outperformed the S&P 500 over the past year (+27.8% vs. +19.3%), with December quarter bulk results expected to help maintain momentum in the stock despite continued market volatility. The Zacks analyst believes Apple has benefited from the momentum in the Services business, strong adoption of Apple Pay and growth in the Apple Music subscriber base.

Apple’s results in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 benefited from strong iPhone sales and continued momentum in the Services business amid significant supply chain constraints. Mac also had a strong quarter thanks to strong demand for the newly redesigned MacBook Pro, powered by the M1 chip. Apple, however, did not provide second-quarter revenue guidance due to pandemic uncertainties.

You’re here shares have gained +19.3% over the past six months against Zacks’ domestic auto industry gain of +5.9%. The Zacks analyst believes strong demand for Model 3s and Ys has buoyed Tesla’s revenue.

Tesla hit record deliveries and record gross margin in the fourth quarter. Despite the global chip crisis, Tesla’s vehicle deliveries jumped 90% in 2021. TSLA is also poised to benefit from its Shanghai gigafactory. High R&D and SG&A costs along with massive capital investment plans are likely to hurt Tesla’s margins and cash flow in the coming quarters.

Shares of Johnson & Johnson have gained +6.1% in the last three months against the +4.1% gain of the industry Zacks Large Cap Pharmaceuticals. The Zacks analyst believes J&J has made rapid progress with its pipeline and line extensions, with several crucial data reads and regulatory milestones expected in the near term.

The pharmaceuticals unit also outperformed the market thanks to Darzalex and Stelara and the contribution of new drugs, Erleada and Tremfya, as well as the COVID-19 vaccine. Consumer unit sales are improving, despite external supply constraints. However, headwinds such as generic competition and pricing pressure continue to weigh on margins.
