On Friday, investors responded positively to favorable economic news, with favorable readings on personal income and spending pointing to the resiliency of the American consumer, even in the face of tough winter conditions that many businesses have blamed for temporary shortfalls in revenue and earnings. Even though the broader market gave up most of its gains from earlier in the day, GameStop (NYSE: GME ) , TriNet Group (NYSE: TNET ) , and Restoration Hardware (NYSE: RH ) all managed to hold onto large advances in their respective share prices going into the weekend.
GameStop jumped 9% Friday, more than making back its losses from yesterday following a quarterly report that initially disappointed investors. The video game retailer saw same-store sales rise 7.8%, but adjusted earnings fell 12%. Despite favorable guidance for 2014, investors worried about the prospect of tougher competition from Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT ) and other retailers, as well as steps from video game makers to eliminate the need for GameStop's middleman services. Analysts at Sterne Agee accentuated the positives in GameStop's report today, with expectations that earnings growth and GameStop's investor day next month could send the stock higher this year if the video game industry generally prospers from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Moreover, initiatives to broaden GameStop's scope to sell other electronics could be a good way to use its store base, even if other companies have struggled selling those electronics on their own.

The company has a current ratio of 17.8% which is higher than the industry mean of 6.55%. Also, it's higher than the one registered by Akzo Nobel NV (AKZOY), Cabot Corporation (CBT) and Olin Corporation (OLN). For investors looking for a higher ROE, PPG Industries Inc. (PPG) could be the option.

Meanwhile, Winchester ammunition manufacturer Olin (NYSE: OLN ) has benefited from a relentless upward trend in ammunition purchases, which it says began the Saturday before Election Day. As of the company's most recent quarterly results, Olin management bluntly stated that the demand has only been "limited by product availability."�
- [By James Brumley]
Those seeking to capitalize on the now-waning firearm craze may be better off looking at ammunition makers like Olin Corporation (OLN). It got its own mania-driven sales bump in Q3, as owners of newly-purchased guns stocked up on bullets. But, at least there’s relatively stable recurring revenue in the ammo business, assuming all these recent gun buyers make occasional visits to the shooting range.
- [By Dan Dzombak]
Olin (NYSE: OLN ) is a chemical company that also owns Winchester Ammunition. The company distributes its ammunition under the Super X, Supreme, Supreme Elite, AA, and Winlite brand names, among others. While the company trades at a P/E ratio of 13, Winchester only makes up 20% to 25% of the business, so you are mainly investing in a chemical company. If you are looking for a pure play on firearms, you are better off looking elsewhere.
Best Forestry Stocks To Watch Right Now: TESARO Inc (TSRO)
TESARO, Inc. (TESARO), incorporated in March 2010, is a development-stage, oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company for cancer patients. The Company focuses on rolapitant and TSR-011 product. The Company�� marketed products and product candidates in development treat cancer through non-specific damage to cellular components or alter cell metabolism or internal repair mechanisms to the demise of cancer cells.
Rolapitant is a potent and long-acting neurokinin-1, or NK-1, receptor antagonist is in Phase III clinical trials for the prevention of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). It is in Phase III clinical trials. CINV, if not prevented by prophylaxis, has the potential to afflict up to 90% or more of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, depending upon the type of chemotherapy administered the dosing schedule of the chemotherapy, and the patients' age and gender, among other predisposing factors. Prolonged nausea and vomiting may result in unwanted weight loss, dehydration and malnutrition, as well as hospitalization. The Company has in-licensed the rights to rolapitant from OPKO Health, Inc.
TSR-011 is an orally available ALK inhibitor in preclinical development. ALK is known to be involved in certain types of cancers, including subsets of NSCLC, neuroblastoma and lymphoma. For patients in these subsets, the ALK gene is fused to an activating partner or contains point mutations, resulting in constitutive activation of ALK and the growth of cancer cells and tumor development. Inhibition of ALK in these cancer cells results in cell death and tumor growth inhibition or regression. In August 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the first ALK inhibitor, developed by Pfizer Inc., Xalkori (crizotinib), which was approved for the treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC that are ALK positive.
