Zacks Bull and Bear of the Day Highlights: Applied Materials, Genworth Financial, Apple, Verizon and AT&T

CHICAGO Jan. 19, 2011 Zacks Equity Research Applied Materials AMAT Genworth Financial GNW Apple Inc. AAPL Verizon VZ AT&T T

Here is a synopsis of all five stocks:

Bull of the Day

Applied Materials AMAT China

Management’s decision to discontinue the thin film business also makes sense, in our opinion. Although it is apparent that the equipment cycle has peaked, we expect the company to outperform its peers this year.


Bear of the Day

Genworth Financial GNW

We expect the elevated unemployment rate will continue pressuring its mortgage insurance business. Though the business is showing signs of improvement, the line is still experiencing losses.
