2 Conference Calls We Can't Wait For

With earnings season comes conference calls. Here are three companies not to miss.

Jul 7, 2014 at 6:23PM

On Monday's Market Foolery, host Chris Hill, Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser, and Stock Advisor Canada analyst Taylor Muckerman explore some conference calls to listen in on as earnings season kicks off.

Taylor is interested in railroad companies and looks at the North American rail industry, but in particular he's excited to listen in on Canadian National Railway's (TSX:CNR) call because it's booming and he sees that the old industry has a long future ahead of it. Jason acknowledges rail's competitive advantage, while Chris notes the high necessity of the rail industry.

Jason is waiting to listen to the Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFM) call. After the beating the company took last quarter, Jason argues that Whole Foods is only for those willing to hold shares for at least a decade. He thinks the company will need to look beyond just its grocery items, such as the bars and restaurants at some Whole Foods locations, to differentiate itself from the competition.

After exploring how Apple will be worth listening to, Chris settles on Yahoo! as his favorite. With Alibaba's IPO in the future, Yahoo! will be picking up about a $10 billion paycheck, and Chris is curious what Yahoo! plans to do with that huge chunk of change.

Leaked: This coming consumer device can change everything
Imagine the multibillion-dollar sales potential behind a product that can revolutionize the way the world shops and interacts with its favorite brands every day. Now picture one small, under-the-radar company at the epicenter of this revolution that makes this all possible. And its stock price has nearly an unlimited runway ahead for early, in-the-know investors. To be one of them and hop aboard this stock before it takes off, just click here.
