Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

Background:

In August, Gilead (GILD) announced the acquisition of Kite Pharma for $11.9 Billion. The deal generated significant excitement for long suffering Gilead shareholders and initially well received by Wall Street. Unlike most, I had a slightly more skeptical view of this deal. In the articles Kite-Gilead Winners and Losers Part 1 and Part 2, I argued the case that Gilead’s acquisition of Kite was a big win for Kite shareholders and one that potentially posed a fair amount of both upside and downside risk for Gilead. (For additional background on the CAR-T space I suggest that readers refer to Kite-Gilead Winners and Losers Part 2.)

Since then abstracts from the upcoming American Society of Hematology ASH conference have been released and suggest that the competitive landscape in CD19 CAR-T space could already be changing. In particular, Juno (JUNO) announced promising data on its JCAR017 program in Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) an indication which Gilead recently received FDA approval for. This article will look at the Kite/Gilead strategy in CD19 CAR-T and how Juno has deployed a different potentially disruptive strategy that could change the competitive landscape.

    Consumer-level virtual reality (VR) received its first big push in 2016 with major headset launches from Facebook(NASDAQ:FB), HTC (NASDAQOTH:HTCCY), and Sony (NYSE:SNE), but uptake for the technology fell short of many analysts’ expectations, and there are a range of challenges that threaten to limit future adoption.Sales for Facebook’s Oculus Rift and HTC’s Vive headsets dried up after their respective launches, and SuperData cut its 2016 sales estimate for Sony’s PlayStation VR from 2.6 million units to 745,000 units — potentially worrying signs for the future of head-mounted displays.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC’s earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC increased its bottom line by earning $4.70 versus $3.49 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($7.39 versus $4.70).

    The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.

    Net operating cash flow has increased to $743.90 million or 10.04% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 0.44%.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    We rate INTERPUBLIC GROUP OF COS as a Buy with a ratings score of A. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

    Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 7.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 1.3%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company’s bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.

    Interpublic is our income play in our media universe. While other stocks we cover offer a higher yield than IPG’s 2.1%, the company’s double digit EPS growth projections for 2016 (following an estimated 18% in 2015) will also likely be a driver of outperformance for the year. While results can be somewhat volatile for IPG, we would point to record new business win backlog this year, which improves our conviction that the better than average recent organic revenue growth trends will continue next year. At 18x our 2016 EPS estimate, we find IPG shares attractive at current levels for another projected year of healthy double digit total returns.

    For those that are looking to express a more downbeat market view, or looking for a source of funds, we can neutralize our positive S&P 500 outlook and aim to sell stocks that are at risk to underperform on a relative basis. While a rising tide lifts all boats in absolute terms, we found that mega-cap safety is the central theme linking stocks that are at, or nearing, decade-long relative lows vs. the S&P 500: General Electric, Southern (SO), Simon Property Group (SPG), Verizon Communications (VZ), Wal-Mart, ExxonMobil. We see such relative weakness as a sign of vulnerability in their trend.
