best stock under 20

Frontier Communications’ (NYSE:FTR) current stock price means that the downside is limited, which has made it an interesting stock to consider. I still believe that the company has to do a lot to improve its core business and capital structure, but the risk-reward equation is now tilting towards the reward side. It is not as risky a stock as it was a year ago, because the stock has already lost more than 70% in the last year. This means that most of the negatives have already been priced in. As the reverse stock split comes into effect (explained in the following paragraphs), there might be some further downward movement. However, if the management is able to show some improvement in leverage and profitability, then this fall should be temporary. I believe the upside can be substantial from here on if the management is able to show some progress in core business.

In my last article about Frontier Communications, I agreed with the analysts at Goldman Sachs that the dividend might be slashed – in fact, I advocated a dividend cut although the dividend coverage was still sufficient. The reasons behind this recommendation were Frontier’s abnormal dividend yield, pressure on stock price, improving the credit profile and reducing the stress on cash flows and EBITDA. Reduction in dividend payments by 62% (down to $0.04 per quarter from $0.105) should reduce stress on cash flows. However, suspending dividend completely would have been a better option, in my opinion. It would have given the management more room to play with the capital structure.

financial stocks to buy

Earlier this year, I profiled one of the best stocks in the perennially un-sexy aftermarket auto parts sector. This stock is still an incredible buy for patient, conservative investors focused on the long haul.

After delivering 9% (including dividends) since my recommendation, shares of Genuine Parts Co. (NYSE: GPC) now trade at an attractive 15% discount to their 52-week high. Despite the rise and sudden drop, my original investment thesis is still intact.

As I pointed out in the previous article, the U.S. aftermarket auto parts space is still highly fragmented. While the big national players such as GPC, O’Reilly (Nasdaq: ORLY), and AutoZone (NYSE: AZO) seem to have a gigantic presence, mom and pop operations are still relevant players on a market share basis. However, consolidating within that independent space is GPC’s growth strategy.

Recently, the company closed on two acquisitions: Apache Hose and Belting Company and Monroe Motor Products. With these two smart buys, GPC was able to add another $125 million to its current annual revenue number of $15.28 billion. They also help solidify GPC’s automotive and industrial supply footprint.

Shares are up about 10.6% since bottoming back in December, besting the S&P over that timeframe. But if you own GlaxoSmithKline, now’s the time to start thinking about taking some of those recent gains off the table — shares are looking “toppy” this spring.

    It has been a year worth forgetting for shareholders of Fitbit (NYSE:FIT). The wearables maker has seen sales sputter and profitability took a big hit thanks to a steep increase in expenses. However, much of that money has been aggressively put into research and development in the past year. While that has contributed to the dismal-looking bottom line, investing for the future is a good thing.

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    While the economy’s natural — and recurring — cycles favor different kinds of stocks at different times, not every great trend is necessarily a cyclical one. Sometimes, a trend is rooted in a technological development that changes cultural norms. The advent of the smartphone, for example, has made constant connectivity to the world around part of how we live our daily lives.

    These mega-trends present tremendous opportunities for investors too, provided they’re savvy enough to see them coming and play them the right way.

    One such mega-trend newly underway right now is the proliferation of wearables… devices that meld clothing (often a wrist-worn device) and technology to perform a function that couldn’t be performed otherwise. Much of the same technology that made the smartphone possible are now ushering in wearables.

    It’s not been a smooth beginning. however.

    While the buzz was strong and expectations reached a peak two years ago when Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) was all the rage and in the wake of its IPO, the company’s growth wasn’t to be sustained. The company is struggling to muster any growth now, and FIT shares have fallen to a tenth of their value seen in late-2015, when the euphoria was strongest.

    Fitbit’s slowdown has been mirrored by other companies in the space. The wearables market only grew 3.1% in Q3 of 2016.

    On the flipside, while the debacle of Fitbit — the wearable industry’s iconic company — has been a painful, it’s also been a learning experience. And, it’s not as if the slowdown is unfurling without the wearables market never reaching a respectable size. International Data Corporation estimates were 23 million ‘wearables’ delivered in the third quarter of last year alone.

    Moreover, the fizzling of the market hasn’t turned into a reason to swear off wearables as an investment opportunity… quite the opposite, actually. It’s just now become considerably clearer what consumers want an

    The question now is more about speed of EV implementation.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now

Over in DigiTimes, contributor Nebojsa Novakovic recently speculated that gaming-oriented graphics processors based on NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ:NVDA) recently announced Volta architecture could use a type of video memory known as HBM2 (“high bandwidth memory 2”) rather than a more traditional graphics double data rate (GDDR) memory.

HBM2 memory is believed to be more expensive to produce than traditional GDDR-type memory, but the idea is that HBM2 is said to offer power efficiency and physical footprint advantages over GDDR-type memories.

Image source: NVIDIA.

Today, NVIDIA’s GP100 chip — which powers the company’s Tesla P100 datacenter accelerator and its Quadro GP100 professional visualization accelerator — uses HBM2, while the company’s gaming-oriented Pascal products (GP102, GP104, GP106, GP107, GP108) use either GDDR5X (for higher-end products) or GDDR5 (for lower-end products).

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018: Nam Tai Electronics Inc.(NTE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another stock that’s starting to move within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Nam Tai Electronics (NTE), which is an electronics manufacturing and design services provider to a select group of the world’s leading OEMs of telecommunications and consumer electronic products. This stock has been destroyed by the sellers so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 41%.

    If you look at the chart for Nam Tai Electronics, you’ll notice that this stock has been uptrending for the last month and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $6.05 to its recent high of $8.38 a share. During that uptrend, shares of NTE have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of NTE within range of triggering a big breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NTE if it manages to break out above some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.38 to $8.79 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 647,483 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NTE will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from April that started near $11.50 a share. If this stock gets into that gap with volume, then the upside is tremendous and we could easily see NTE hit $11 to $12 a share.

    Traders can look to buy NTE off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 50-day at $7.42 a share, or below more key support at $7.22 a share. One can also buy NTE off strength once it takes out that breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018: LinkedIn Corporation(LNKD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Benzinga News Desk]

    Microsoft has offered concessions to EU antitrust regulators over its $26.2 billion, $196 per share offer for LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD), according to the European Commission. The EU regulator had expressed concerns to Microsoft executives about the deal, which was announced in June.

  • [By Alex McGuire]

    For example, LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE: LNKD) fell 16.1% to $79.03 from its IPO date on May 19, 2011, to Aug. 19, 2011. But LNKD stock has since recovered 148% to today’s share price of $195.96.

  • [By Andres Cardenal]

    The most powerful investment ideas are the ones that can be easily explained and understood. LinkedIn(LNKD) is an undisputed market leader in remarkably promising areas such as professional networking and online employment opportunities, and this makes the company a top name to buy in 2016 and hold for years to come.

    As of the third quarter of 2015, LinkedIn(LNKD) had 396 million registered members around the world, a big increase of 20% versus the same quarter the previous year, and 39,726 corporate solutions customers on the platform, a year-over-year increase of 31%. Individuals and corporations attract each other to LinkedIn in search of opportunities, and this creates a virtuous cycle driving sustainable growth over the long term.

    Management is also translating the company’s massive opportunities into rapid revenue growth. Total sales grew 37% to $780 million last quarter, with the acquisition of online learning platform lynda.com representing $41 million of that. LinkedIn’s three growth engines are firing on all cylinders: Talent solutions for corporations grew 46%, while premium subscription sales increased 21%, and online advertising revenue jumped 28%.

    LinkedIn(LNKD) is actively investing for growth, so profit margins are hard to predict in the short term. However, the company should be able to combine solid revenue growth and expanding profit margins in the years ahead.
