Tuesday Turnaround: Micron, Autonomous Driving, and J.C. Penney
J.C. Penney says we don't need you anyway as Marvin Ellison, ex-CEO, departs for Lowes.

Ah, Tuesday. 

Since it's not even the middle of the week, let's keep things short and sweet.

There's an hour before the workday is over, so it's time to check out these stories.

Red Hot Micron Is Still One Heck of a Bargain

Stephen Gulifoyle is a contributor for RealMoney.

Guilfoyle breaks down Micron and explains why it's a stock to watch

"Micron Technology (MU - Get Report) was up 3.9% on Monday. The firm held its annual investor and analyst meeting on Monday. Micron announced revenue for the third quarter would land in the $7.7 billion to $7.8 billion range, up from prior guidance of $7.2 billion to $7.6 billion. Micron's fiscal third quarter ends on May 31, by the way," said Guilfoyle.

Don't forget that Micron has come up a couple of times in the last two days. We had a reporter on the ground at the investment day on Monday, May 21. Interested in Micron? Then check it out.

These 5 Autonomous Driving Stocks Are Flashing Buy Signals

Jonas Elmerraji, another contributor for TheStreet, takes on autonomous driving. 

"As I write, scores of technology and automobile companies are scrambling to develop advanced autonomous vehicle programs before their rivals have a chance to bring them to market. But today, we're not trying to figure out which autonomous driving program is the best. We're only interested in the price action," said Elmerraji.

It's hard to miss all of the attention that autonomous driving has received in the past couple of months. Between Elon Musk complaining on Tesla's earnings call that the media is unfair to autonomous driving and the various accidents, it can be hard to keep up with. Is autonomous driving good? Is it bad? Most importantly, is it safe? 

Well, Elmerraji takes a step back from what has been seen as the "normal" media narrative and instead focuses on the stocks of five major companies in the autonomous driving field.

OMG, J.C. Penney! What CEO Ellison's Surprising Exit Means for Troubled Retailer

OMG is right. 

The news of Lowe Cos. Inc.'s (LOW) poaching Marvin Ellison from J.C. Penney Inc. (JCP) broke early this morning. 

The retail giant has been suffering for a couple of years now. In fact, it had announced its earnings just last week. Guess what? They were pretty disappointing. 

Ellison blamed the bad weather while Macy's CEO laughed in a corner. (Not really, but you know what I mean.)

Well now J.C. Penney has to rethink its strategy again. And, in case you forgot, Ellison only came on board in 2015. 

So far, the retail giant is saying we don't need you anyway, and has set up a group of people to lead the company together. 

Let's just hope that this break up isn't too messy.

And that's a wrap.
