Top 10 Undervalued Stocks For 2022

AbbVie’s  (ABBV) – Get AbbVie, Inc. Report selloff was overdone after a Sept. 1 setback for its star immunology drug Rinvoq, and the stock remains undervalued, says BMO analyst Gary Nachman.

He has an outperform rating and a $133 price target. The stock recently traded at $106.61, down 0.81%, and has dropped 12% since Aug. 31.

On Sept. 1, the Food and Drug Administration mandated new heart safety and cancer warnings for Rinvoq and other companies’ JAK inhibitor class of medicines.

“Physicians agreed Rinvoq is still likely to get approved for atopic dermatitis (AD), given its overall risk/benefit,” Nachman said. “Even with limited use, it could still be a solid opportunity.”

Top Value Stocks To Invest In 2019: SunTrust Banks, Inc.(STI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    In the largest banking merger since the end of the financial crisis, Southeastern-based regional banks BB&T (NYSE:BBT) and SunTrust Banks (NYSE:STI) have announced their intention to combine forces later this year.

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    This week, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will testify on monetary policy before the House Financial Services Committee. Powell will likely face stiff questions from Democrats on the Fed’s decision to not raise interest rates during its first meeting of the year, the state of the U.S. economy, and the announced merger between BB&T Corp. (NYSE: BBT) and SunTrust Banks Inc. (NYSE: STI). Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald appeared on FOX Business Network last week to discuss the Fed’s latest stress tests and the merger that will create the sixth largest bank in the United States. Across the Atlantic Ocean, the rhetoric is heating up over Brexit. With a deadline approaching, Prime Minister Theresa May has taken a shot at Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn over his demands for a soft exit. Corbyn set five elements that must be included in a deal for his party to support it, including a customs union with the EU, alignment with the EU’s single market, EU environmental protections, and EU-specific workers’ rights. May criticized Corbyn’s demands given that they effectively would prevent Britain from striking its own trade deals in the future. Britain is very unprepared for a departure from the EU at the moment. New reports indicate that British mobile subscribers may face roaming charges should no deal be reached in the coming weeks.

The Boston-based conglomerate is expected to report earnings per share (EPS) of $0.18 on top of $29.76 billion in revenue. Former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank Vice President Jerry O’Driscoll offered some choice words for the U.S. central bank. In an interview with CNBC, O’Driscoll warned that the Fed is being “very aggressive” with interest rate policy in 2018. He warned the central bank is ignoring important factors like a rising dollar and the flattening yield curve. The former bank executive argued that he doesn’t see the case for additional rate hikes in the year ahead. This is one reason why investors should protect themselves from any downside caused by the Fed.

    Retail stocks are in focus after the U.S. Census Bureau released monthly sales figures before the bell Tuesday. The bureau said that retail sales increased by 0.3% in April, a figure that matched trade expectations. Markets had expected consumer spending to increase, however home improvement sales were not the major factor that most expected. This was evident from The Home Depot’s earnings report. Markets are increasingly optimistic over U.S. trade negotiations with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No. 1 economic advisor will visit the United States this week to continue the nation’s dialogue with America. In addition, roughly 100 companies and trade associations will be sounding off to the Trump administration about the potential impact of tariffs in the Chinese markets.
    Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, AMZN, GS
    Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) is in focus thanks to tax policy in Seattle. On Monday, the Seattle’s City Council passed a bill that will tax Amazon and 131 other companies $275 per employee each year in order to create a fund to address homelessness in the Seattle. The tax is half what was originally proposed and remains a contentious issue for Amazon, which is the city’s biggest employer. Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) is sounding the alarm about the state of the markets. The company warned that the U.S. budget deficit is increasing while America’s unemployment rate is falling. This hasn’t occurred since the World War II. The bank believes that the combination of the two could cause the Fed to spike interest rates in the near future. This comes at a time when the Fed has already lost control of interest rates. Look for additional earnings reports from Eagle Materials Inc. (NYSE: EXP), Bitauto Holding Ltd.(Nasdaq: BITA), Virtusa Corp. (Nasdaq: VRTU), Global Eagle Entertainment Inc.(Nasdaq: ENT), and Kamada Ltd. (Nasdaq: KMDA).
