Remember to always DYOR.

PayPal (​$PYPL​)

Following the release of PayPal’s Q3 2023 results, the company’s shares experienced an 8.6% increase in two days, although they are down nearly 25% year-to-date and more than 80% from their 2021 peak.

Estee Lauder (​$EL​)

Estée Lauder (EL) shares dipped by 18.9% on November 1, following Q1 FY24 results, but rebounded 7% to $112 on November 2. Despite a 70% decline since 2021 end, EL maintains a 20.4x P/E based on FY19 EPS and a 2.4% Dividend Yield.

​Full analysis​

NatWest (​$NWG​)

NatWest’s Q3 2023 results triggered a 14% share price decline, mainly due to fears surrounding Net Interest Margin (NIM), which fell from 3.27% in Q1 to 2.94% in Q3, impacting the Return on Tangible Equity (ROTE) which dropped from around 20% in Q1 to 14.7% in Q3. Despite this, the bank’s strong customer relationships and economies of scale are expected to support better NIM and ROTE compared to competitors.
