Best Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018

Sandstorm Gold (NYSEMKT:SAND) is not a typical streaming/royalty company. Apart from running a portfolio of streams and royalties, the company also holds a few equity stakes in mining companies. As a result, it is a little bit hard to value the company’s shares. In this article, using a simple valuation model, I would like to show that Sandstorm’s shares are undervalued now.

Introduction

As I noted above, Sandstorm holds two main asset classes:

Streaming/royalty portfolio Equity portfolio

The first class may be valued using the discount cash flow model. In its financial reports, the company discloses all relevant conditions at which it had entered each stream and royalty agreement as for example: duration, price at which the metals are to be acquired, the amount of metals under agreement, etc.

Having this data, I can easily find the discounted value of each stream and royalty.

As for equities, I have focused on three main equity stakes held by the company. To find their value, I am using two methods:

Best Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018: OSI Systems, Inc.(OSIS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    OSI Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIS) dropped 36% Wednesday to post a new 52-week low of $53.80 after closing at $84.07 on Tuesday. The 52-week high is $96.64. Volume was around 9 million, around 6 times the daily average of about 155,000. Short seller Muddy Waters called OSI “rotten to the core” in a new report this morning.

    Look out OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSIS), and step aside American Science & Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASEI). You may be the key names in weapons detection and security screening right now, but an up-and-comer called Patriot One Technologies Inc. (CVE:PAT, OTCMKTS:PTOTF) is about to unleash a rival product that turns heads, and steals your customers.

    Weapons detection tools in a world that’s always got terrorism threats lurking around every corner are no laughing matter, though were it any other subject, the results would be laughable. See, as advanced as the x-ray and screening products made by American Science & Engineering and OSI Systems may be, they just don’t work well enough.

    Case in point: A recent internal investigation performed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) found that undercover investigators were able to smuggle fake explosives and weapons through checkpoints in 95% of trials, which they conducted at dozens of America’s busiest airports. What’s the point?

    For the past several years Patriot One Technologies has been working on a technology, called the CMR1000, that changes everything.

    The CMR1000 (‘CMR’ is an short for Cognitive Microwave Radar) is an amazing device. It works not unlike a X-ray machine at an airport, but also not unlike a more conventional metal detector you might find at an airport or at the entryway to a building. In all regards though, it’s better than both. By using high-frequency microwaves that are harmless to humans, the CMR1000 can even pinpoint exactly what kind of metallic weapon it is… a semi-automatic pistol versus a revolver, or a machete versus a pocket knife. Most important, the CMR1000 boasts a (very) high detection-accuracy rate of 93%.

    And it’s almost ready… ready enough to officially unveil this April at the ISC West (International Security Conference) in Las Vegas, and immediately begin taking orders for initial deliveries around the middle of

    If shareholders of OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSIS) and American Science & Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASEI) — makers of weapons detection systems — are getting a little nervous, that’s understandable. Never has either company’s share of the market been so threatened. Indeed, an up-and-coming company called Patriot One Technologies Inc. (CVE:PAT, OTCMKTS:PTOTF) fired another volley at American Science & Engineering and OSI Systems, announcing yet-another institution had asked for a real-life demonstration (on their premises) of the brand-new kind of anti-terrorism technology that Patriot One’s been developing for years.

    The CMR1000 (‘CMR’ is an short for Cognitive Microwave Radar) is nothing less than incredible. It works not unlike a X-ray machine at an airport, but also not unlike a more conventional metal detector you might find at an airport or at the entryway to a building. In all regards though, it’s better than both. By using high-frequency microwaves that are harmless to humans, the CMR1000 can even pinpoint exactly what kind of metallic weapon it is… a semi-automatic pistol versus a revolver, or a machete versus a pocket knife.

    This capability overcomes the key shortcoming of most threat-detection apparatus in use today…

    … which doesn’t work very well, by the way. A recent internal investigation performed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) found that undercover investigators were able to smuggle fake explosives and weapons through checkpoints in 95% of trials, which they conducted at dozens of America’s busiest airports.

    Patriot One Technologies is mostly excited about the launch of the CMR1000, however, because it’s not a mere threat-detection tool. Word will quickly spread that it’s a threat-deterrent tool; the easiest way combat violent action is not letting it happen in the first place, and the best way to do that to accurately find and accurately identify what the threat is, right down to

    Climbing nearly 6% through January, the price of gold outpaced the meager gain — approximately 1% — of the S&P 500. Unsurprisingly, many of the market’s largest gold stocks enjoyed double-digit gains, including AngloGold Ashanti (NYSE:AU), Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), IAMGOLD (NYSE:IAG), and Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD).
