Hot High Tech Stocks To Own For 2019


RPM International (NYSE:RPM) isn’t a household name among investors, but the maker of Rust-Oleum and DAP makes a variety of coatings and sealants to serve consumer and industrial customers alike, including cleaning products, specialty restoration equipment, and building materials. Coming into Thursday’s fiscal third-quarter financial report, its shareholders had wanted to see significant sales growth, even as they were prepared for a pullback in earnings. RPM wasn’t quite able to live up to those expectations, and further reductions in full-year guidance were also a negative for investors.

Net income actually fell by roughly a third to $11.9 million, and that resulted in earnings of $0.09 per share. That was below the $0.11-per-share consensus forecast.

Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood.
