investing in shares

Investors have to be scratching their heads in 2017. After perhaps the most brutal election cycle of modern days, investors keep seeing the U.S. stock market challenge all-time highs almost every single day. The notion that this bull market is a few days shy of 8 years old just doesn’t matter. Investors keep wanting to buy pullbacks, and they are looking for ideas.

24/7 Wall St. has tracked many mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for years. The grand-daddy of all indexes is the S&P 500 Index with a combined market cap of a whopping $21.3 trillion. This index dwarfs the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s $5.97 trillion market cap.

Many investors simply do not want to take any non-market risk in specific stocks or even in specific sectors. That leads them into the S&P 500 mutual funds or ETFs. The question that many investors will ask — which S&P 500 Index fund is the best?

When it comes to be the best, let’s say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The three major funds/ETFs that track the S&P 500 all have incredibly low fees that are less than 0.1%. That is dirt cheap, and most index-trackers will tell you that fee minimization will influence your returns more than anything else over time.

    Ambarella, Inc. (AMBA) has been all over the map over the last few years. It has defied gravity both to the up and to the downside, and although today’s suggested short of the stock is strictly technical, we do believe its current share price has once again gotten a little out of line when you compare it to the rest of the markets’ valuation metrics right now.

These deals include Southern Tide (acquired by Oxford Industries (OXM)), Joe’s Jeans (acquired by Sequential Brands Group (SQBG)), prAna (acquired by Columbia Sportswear (COLM)), The Jones Group (acquired by Sycamore Partners [private] and Juicy Couture (acquired by Authentic Brands Group [private]). The average EV/EBITDA multiple of these transactions are 12.9x (in line with KATE’s 5-year historical average of 12.1x) and implies a potential deal range of $22-$23.
