Despite the S&P 500’s recent bounce, the market environment remains perilous. Participation in the advance is limited which explains the underperformance of small and mid-caps index.

LYV

LYV certainly receives plenty of attention from the mainstream investing media yet it appears as though the stock is unworthy of its current price. LYV owns and operates entertainment venues. The company also generates revenue through the production, hosting, and promotion of live entertainment.

The rise of the Delta coronavirus variant spells trouble for LYV. If masks mandates return, people will return to social distancing, making it that much more challenging for live entertainment providers such as LYV to generate revenue.

LYV has a beta of 1.37. If the stock market becomes a rollercoaster, LYV’s low beta will likely keep LYV relatively stable. At the moment, LYV is priced at $78.98. The stock’s 52-week high is $94.63. LYV’s 52-week low is $44.95.

LYV is ranked outside of the top 10 of the 14 stocks that comprise the Entertainment – Sports & Theme Parks industry. You can find out more about the stocks in this space by clicking here.

RAIL

RAIL makes railroad freight cars. In particular, RAIL specializes in railcars that carry coal. RAIL also makes mill gondola cars, flat cars, motor vehicle carriers, coil steel cars, and intermodal cars.

RAIL has an F POWR Rating grade. The stock has an F Stability component grade along with Ds in the Sentiment, Quality, and Value components. You can find out how RAIL fares in the Momentum and Growth components of the POWR Ratings by clicking here.

The analysts are not exactly pounding the table in favor of RAIL. Of the two analysts who have issued recommendations for the stock, both view it as a Hold.

Based in Chicago, RAIL has a beta of 2.49. This is a fairly high beta, meaning RAIL is likely to fluctuate should the market get rocky. The stock is priced at $5.47. RAIL has a 52-week low of $1.35. The stock’s 52-week high is $8.63. RAIL has a one-month price return of -10%. The stock has a three-month price return of -22%.
