Posted February 12, 2018 08:19:52 The stock market is roaring, and it’s getting bigger all the time. 

But there are still some companies that are not performing as well as others. 

There are a number of big companies that have been in decline for a while. 

The ones that I am going to talk about are companies that you might not know much about, and which have not been around in the past few years. 

If you want to understand the financial industry better, you need to understand where they are going. 

You can follow the money with these ten stocks that are still around, and are still doing well. 

10. 

T-Mobile USA (NYSE:TMUS) T-Mobile is the largest wireless carrier in the United States. 

Its stock has grown quite a bit in recent years, but that growth has been slow. 

They were up more than 13% in 2018, and I think that is a good sign. 

However, the company has been in a rough spot. 

In 2018, T-Mo was down more than 11% year over year, and that is the first time it has been down that much in a year. 

It also had a huge revenue decline in the second half of 2018. 

Last year, TMobile had revenue of $6.3 billion, and this year, the carrier had revenue less than $2.3 million. 

That is an awful lot of bad news for a company that had a $2 billion profit in 2018.

The stock is up slightly this year and that could be good news, but the stock will need to grow by about 6% to be worth a premium over what it was before. 

9. 

General Electric (NYSE, GE) GE has a big financial problem, and one that many of their employees have been complaining about. 

GE is one of the largest suppliers of electricity in the US. 

Since the merger between GE and Cadillac in 2006, GE has grown to become one of America’s largest employers. 

For many years, GE was a leader in the electric power sector, and their stock has been rising. 

Despite their strong financial performance in 2018 and the merger, GE’s stock has fallen a lot in recent months. 

According to the S&P 500 Index, GE fell 0.9% in 2017 and 1.6% in 2016. 

I am not sure why the stock has dropped, but if you want a safe-haven for the stock, I would recommend you buy GE stock. 

8. 

Dell (NYSE :DDD) Dells stock has a lot of upside potential, but its performance has been a bit disappointing. 

Although Dell is not one of my favorite stocks, they are still very strong and I still like Dell. 

On a positive note, the stock did increase by 3% in the third quarter of 2018, which is a big positive sign.

But the company still has a long way to go before it will be profitable. 

As an investor, you want stocks that have a long-term upside, and Dell does not have a lot. 

7. 

Verizon (NYSE:(NYSE:VZ) Verisys stock has risen a lot this year.

Its stock has gone up a lot, but Verizon has struggled to make any significant gains. 

This year, Verizon has posted a loss of $3.7 billion, which will be a big setback for the company. 

And if Verizon continues to lose money, they will need a big boost from the stock.

Verizon stock is currently up about 20% this year to $16.95. 

6. 

Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL) Oracle is a huge player in the Oracle software and cloud industry. 

When it comes to the software industry, Oracle has been quite successful. 

After Oracle bought Sun Microsystems in 1999, they took a massive hit from the downturn in the dot com bubble. 

During the dot-com bubble, Oracle was valued at $50 billion, but they sold out in less than a year after they sold. 

Today, Oracle is valued at about $100 billion. 

5. 

E-Trade (NYSE (NASD:ETC)) ETrade is a very small trading company that has a good track record of doing well in the stock market. 

Currently, E-Trade is worth about $2 a share. 

At the beginning of 2018 when the company went public, ETC was valued around $2 and then dropped to around $1.25. 

Now, ETR is worth $2, and ETC has been up around 25% this quarter. 

4. 

Amazon (NASDA:AMZN) Amazon has always been one of, if not the, biggest companies in the world.
