Hot Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now: Werner Enterprises, Inc.(WERN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Werner Enterprises (NASDAQ: WERN) and Universal Logistics (NASDAQ:ULH) are both transportation companies, but which is the better investment? We will compare the two businesses based on the strength of their institutional ownership, profitability, analyst recommendations, dividends, valuation, earnings and risk.

  • [By ]

    Werner Enterprises (Nasdaq: WERN) competes in the full-truckload (FTL) segment of the industry where drivers deliver entire truck-loads between two points, rather than making many stops to consolidate partial loads as in the LTL segment. This could mean that the company has relatively more to gain from autonomous trucking since highway driving is a larger portion of total drive time.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2018

Your Pizza Hut delivery could one day arrive via a self-driving Toyota van.

Toyota unveiled a concept vehicle called e-Palette, which could host a mobile store, act as a ride-sharing service or deliver packages. The announcement was unveiled at International CES in Las Vegas on Monday.

The automaker said it is teaming up with a handful of partners, including Pizza Hut, Amazon, Chinese ridesharing giant Didi and Uber.

“Today, you have to travel to the stores,” Toyota president Akio Toyoda said at the event. “In the future with e-Pallete, the store will come to you.”

Although e-Palette is only a concept vehicle for now, he added that the company plans to pilot the technology at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Tests in the U.S. and other areas are envisioned for the early 2020s.

    Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (NYSE: VRX) sawits shares hit a multiyear low this past week. There was hope for a turnaround when Joe Papa took over as chief executive officer,but it seems that littlehas gone his way, especially after the company reported earnings early this week. Some analysts took this opportunity to reevaluate their stance on the stock. Although this might be a buy for some, the returns look to be getting smaller.

    Shares of Valeant (NYSE:VRX) jumped more than 14% in pre-market trading yesterday, after the Canadian drug maker announced its long-awaited asset sale plans. The stock later gave away some of its gains after Moody’s released a report stating that the asset sales will not impact its credit rating or outlook, though Valeant’s bond prices jumped by 4.5%. Valeant is a classic example of a shareholder value destroyer. Once the darling of Wall Street, the stock has lost more than 90% of its value since its peak in 2014 and is down by more 80% in the last one year. The stock has dragged portfolios of the likes of Bill Ackman and Prof. Aswath Damodaran. However, the asset saleprovides a ray of hope for Valeant’s shareholders.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2018: Nu Skin Enterprises Inc.(NUS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Craig Jones]

    Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) is trading sharply higher on Friday, but options traders are buying puts in the name, said Jon Najarian. Traders were buying the June 50 puts and they paid around 6 percent for them, so they don't see much upside in Nu Skin Enterprises, explained Najarian. He followed the trade and he is planning to hold the position for a month.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) is a direct selling company, which develops and distributes personal care products and nutritional supplements that are sold under the Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands. This stock closed up 5.4% at $92.96 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 2 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 900,802

    Volume % Change: 85%

    From a technical perspective, NUS ripped higher here right above some near-term support at $85 with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of NUS into breakout and new 52-week-high territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $88.20 to $89.69. This move also pushed shares of NUS above the upper-end of its recent range that saw the stock trend between $82 to just above $89.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NUS as long as it’s trending above support at $85 and then once it sustains a move or close above Monday’s high of $93.33 with volume that this near or above 900,802 shares. If we get that move soon, then NUS will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $100 to $105.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Citigroup’s Beth Kite calls Nu Skin Enterprises’ (NUS) earnings and guidance “awfully disappointing.” She explains why:

    “Frustrating” Describes 4Q15 & 2016 Guidance:Nu Skin (i) reported 4Q15 EPS of $0.62, 11 cents below consensus and us, and (ii) lowered 2016 EPS guidance, from $3.25-$3.40 to $2.40-$2.60.Nu Skin had three LTO’s in 4Q152 succeeded and 1 failed. The failure had far less to do with the product than with the sales strategy…

    Is Guidance Too Conservative or Is It Really This Bad? We get that Me failed to sell well in South Korea with the 12-month cartridge commitment. But given the strength in reps globally, the strength of Youth from its two LTOs in 2H15, and good results from Me when sold in Japan without the 12-month commitment, we wonder if guidance is aggressive to the downside. Indeed, the word “conservative” was said a lot by mgmt on the brief earnings call when describing guidance revisions.

    Maintaining Buy: While we now have less confidence in mgmt, from an external perspective, to forecast its results accurately, and from an internal perspective, to course correct quicklyi.e., why didn’t they drop the 12-month plan for Me in South Korea when it so obviously wasn’t workingwe are still confident in Youth & Me. The rep growth in South Asia/Pacific from Youth in 3Q led to better 4Q sales than we’d expected, Youth’s Americas LTO in 4Q drove lc sales up 26% YoY, and Me not only sold through in Japan in 4Q but also drove reps higher. We imagine that investors may have little patience or confidence in Nu Skin for a while, understandably. But the bar seems set fairly low now, so we are cautiously optimistic that Nu Skin can dig itself out of this hole as we go through 2016 and Me & Youth roll out more fully.

    Shares of Nu Skin have tumbled 13% to $27.31 at 2:11 p.m. today.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2018: Corbus Pharmaceuticals Holdings, Inc.(CRBP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    This rapid growth in legal pot has create quite the demand for marijuana stocks. The seven largest marijuana stocks by market cap have all put on a show over the past couple of years. Here are those seven “green giants” listed with their market caps as of March 17, 2017, along with their trailing one-year total returns.

    GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH): $3.0 billion, up 64% Canopy Growth Corp. (NASDAQOTH:TWMJF): $904 million, up 259% Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) $440 million, up 381% Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF): $482 million, up 299% AXIM Biotechnologies (NASDAQOTH:AXIM): $562 million, up 1,720% Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:CRBP): $450 million, up 431% Medical Marijuana (NASDAQOTH:MJNA): $221 million, up 254%

    As you can see, these are some hefty valuations — and some exceptionally strong moves higher on the heels of marijuana’s expansion. With the exception of GW Pharmaceuticals, every one of the largest marijuana stocks has at least tripled in value over the trailing 12 months, with cannabinoid-based drug developer AXIM Biotechnologies skyrocketing more than 1,700%!

    The restaurant chain said it earned 29 cents a share on revenue of $484.7 million. Analysts were expecting earnings per share of 38 cents on revenue of $497.3 million.

    Same-restaurant sales grew 1.2% at company restaurants and 2% at domestic franchises. For the first 55 days of the first quarter, Texas Roadhouse said that same-store sales rose 1.5%.

    The company also raised its dividend 10.5% to 21 cents a share.

    Some analysts urged investors to keep the faith in the stock.Barclay’s JeffreyBernsteinreiterated an Overweight rating and $47 price target on thestock:

    We believe TXRH fundamentals remain best-in-class. That said, the near-term focus remains on directional comps. And not unlike the broader industry, TXRH comps eased significantly to close 2016. Such led to disappointing 4Q16 results from top to bottom. Importantly, while the brand ‘is not immune’ to industry comp headwinds, the relative outperformance to the category was maintained. Looking to 2017, key guidance metrics were reiterated. While questions remain on whether the recent easing of industry comps will persist, we remain comforted by TXRH’s relative outperformance and easing comps as we move through 2017.

    Maxim’s Stephen Andersonreiterated a Buy rating, although he took his price target down $4, to $52:

    In our view, TXRH is not immune to the broader slowdown in Casual Dining, but we believe the company will emerge stronger than peers in the next few quarters.TXRHs disappointing 4Q16 comp of +1.3% (blended) was pulled down by a rare negative comp month in December (-2.1%), marking the first time this occurred in almost four years. Comps were +3% or better in both October and November, and comps so far in 1Q17 are positive despite a stormy start to the quarter in

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

When fear and volatility rear their ugly heads, investors will traditionally turn to more conservative investments — such as gold. Presumably, this is what happened during the bitterly fought presidential campaign. In 2016, the price of gold, which ended the year up about 8%, had climbed as much as 28% at one point.

Similarly, many gold stocks enjoyed quite the ride last year — rides that have extended into the new year, leaving some companies trading at seriously low prices. Of course, this doesn’t mean these companies are worthy of investment. So let’s grab our pickaxes and see what we can uncover.

Minding the miners

When considering gold-mining companies’ stocks, it’s important to recognize that the traditional price-to-earnings ratio doesn’t have as much merit. Because of non-cash charges — like depreciation — it’s not uncommon for companies to take large writedowns on their assets, resulting in skewed earnings figures. Yamana Gold, for example,recorded non-cash impairment charges of $2.6 billion.In the company’s annual report, management acknowledged that “the largest contributor to the impairment was the writedown of values relating to exploration landand potential ounces.”

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: Paragon Offshore plc (PGNPQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Paragon Offshore’s (OTCPK:PGNPQ) former management’s audacious efforts to omit parts of the senior secured lenders by deeming them unimpaired and instead pay out the majority of the company’s cash to junior unsecured bondholders by presenting a set of entirely unrealistic business forecasts to the court. Fortunately, in case of Paragon Offshore, the bankruptcy judge recognized the framing and accordingly denied confirmation of the company’s plan of reorganization, effectively sending Paragon Offshore back to the drawing board. Consequently, management was ousted after the failure. I have covered the Paragon Offshore saga in a series of articles over the past few quarters, so interested investors might want to take a look at this highly fascinating and still evolving case study.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    With even brand new rigs struggling to find work, the jig was soon up for owners of old equipment, like Paragon Offshore (OTCPK:PGNPQ), which is currently undergoing its second debt restructuring in less than three years of independent existence. Likewise, drillers with a fondness for aggressive use of debt were soon in trouble, most notably, former high-flier Seadrill (SDRL) and its little brother North Atlantic Drilling (NADL), which will no doubt file for restructuring within months. As a consequence of the crisis, the OSD industry now has a number of participants without a large debt burden, either new entrants like Borr Drilling, or established competitors that have had debt reduced in a restructuring, such as Ocean Rig (ORIG), to be followed within this year by others, almost certainly including each of SDRL, NADL, and Pacific Drilling (PACD).

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    According to Bob Radie (see transcript of January 9th teleconference), the company’s president and chief executive officer, a key consideration in the denial was the FDA’s granting, in November 2016, rival product MorphaBond three-year exclusivity for the intranasal route of abuse. Significantly, though, even though MorphaBond – developed by tiny, privately-owned Inspirion Delivery Technologies – was approved in October 2015, it is yet to be commercialized. An October 25, 2016, marketing agreement between Inspirion and Japan-based Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. (OTCPK:DSKYF) suggests MorphaBond could be launched in the near future, but it’s also important to note that the aforementioned exclusivity expires on October 2, 2018, at which point Egalet will be able to include the clinical data from its intranasal abuse potential study in its label.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Invest In 2018

Frontier Communications (FTR) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after getting cut to Neutral from Buy at BofA Merrill Lynch.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

Frontier Communicationsdropped 5.1% to $2.62, while the S&P 500 declined 0.3% to 2,368.38.

24/7 Wall St.’sJon C. Ogg excerpts from Merrill Lynch’s note:

In our view, the challenge for the stock is that as the top line has compressed at a surprising rate, the payout ratio and therefore risk to the dividend, is rising. With a 15% yield already, we see the stock as caught in a negative feedback loop. The market is pricing in a dividend cut that neednt happen now or even in the next several years, but the mere fact the yield is that high carries the risk that the Board and management could simply respond to the market by trimming the dividend proactively. Even if the dividend were cut 50%, we dont believe there would be substantial downside for the stock as the yield would emerge at a relatively more normal 7.5%. Until FTR can show business stability, however, which we had expected in 4Q but now do not expect until 2H at the earliest, irrespective of the attractive yield, we dont believe the stock will be able to outperform.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Invest In 2018: Rex Energy Corporation(REXX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Stoffel]

    For a number of years,Casey’s General Stores (NASDAQ:CASY) investors were rewarded by the small-town convenience chain’s decision to become a major vendor of pizza and other prepared foods. But with that success has come increased competition. Combined with somewhat stagnant economies in the areas that Casey’s operates — namely, towns of less than 5,000 people in middle America — the company has had trouble meeting its own expectations. That trend continued on Monday night when Casey’s announced earnings for the third quarter of its fiscal year.

    Its been a mighty weird year for Caseys General Stores (CASY). The company has had some tough quarters, but just when things are looking bleak, the team got some runners on base and drove a few home.

  • [By Mike Deane]

    After the bell on Monday, Casey’s General Stores (CASY) announced its fiscal Q1 earnings, posting a strong increase in profits and overall revenues compared to the same time period last year.

    The Ankeny, IA-based convenience store company announced quarterly revenues of $2.11 billion, which were up from $1.87 billion in last year’s same quarter. Profits for the company came in at $55.71 million, or $1.43 per share, compared to $39.03 million, or $1.01 per share, in last year’s Q1.

    Both of these figures beat analysts’ estimates, which were EPS of $1.26 on revenues of $2.1 billion.

    CASY shares were up $1.01, or 1.49%, at market close on Monday. YTD, the stock is up more than 26%.
