Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

What happened

Shares of Monster Beverage (NASDAQ:MNST) jumped as much as 6.8% higher on Wednesday following the energy drink maker’s renewal and increase of an exhausted share buyback policy. As of 1:50 p.m. EDT, the stock had settled down to a 5.8% gain.

So what

Having used up the old $250 million share repurchase authorization, Monster’s board of directors doubled up with a new $500 million policy. The previous buyback program was announced as recently as March 1, 2018. Looking one step further back, another $500 million plan was launched in 2015 and lasted all the way up to this spring.

Now what

If Monster immediately used up the new buyback program, the $500 million action would only retire roughly 2% of the company’s outstanding stock. The market reaction today is about three times larger because Monster’s leadership is signaling a firm conviction that its stock is undervalued and a great investment at current prices. Therefore, a rapid buyback program is seen as a good use of the company’s own cash.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Devon Energy Corporation(DVN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While production problems at the end of 2017 caused Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) to miss the mark in the fourth quarter, the company quickly turned things around in 2018. Because of that, CEO Dave Hager is very optimistic about this year, which was evident in his comments on the accompanying conference call where he had four key messages for investors.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Those buyback-driven gains suggest that companies that follow this strategy could replicate this outperformance. While several oil companies are buying back their shares this year, two oil stocks with the greatest potential for a big-time buyback-fueled rally in the coming months are Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and QEP Resources (NYSE:QEP).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While Devon Energy’s (NYSE:DVN) drilling machine hit a bit of a speed bump during the third quarter due to some maintenance issues, the company didn’t expect those problems to continue during 2018’s final period. That’s one of a few things investors should review when the company reports its fourth-quarter results this week.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Sociedad Quimica y Minera S.A.(SQM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    Now that the three big lithium companies that trade on a major U.S. stock exchange — Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE:SQM), or SQM, and FMC Corp. (NYSE:FMC). — have reported their first-quarter 2018 results, we’re going to compare how their respective lithium businesses performed.

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, Reuters reported that China’s Tianqi Lithium Corp is looking to raise up to $1 billion in a Hong Kong stock market flotation after filing a draft prospectus with the exchange. Based in China’s province of Sichuan, Tianqi Lithium Corp is the world’s second-largest lithium producer by sales and is building the world’s biggest lithium processor in Western Australia. In May, the Company announced a blockbuster $4.1 billion deal to buy a 24% stake in Chile’s Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM), the world’s No.2 lithium miner, with the majority of future listing proceeds to be used for refinancing this deal (note that the sale has not yet been approved by Chile’s antitrust regulator).

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    It should be noted that FMC Corp together with Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) and Chile’s Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM) form a so-called “lithium oligopoly” that tends to dominate global production. A recent Bloomberg article noted that Albemarle Chief Executive Officer Luke Kissam had said in March that he’s also eager to see how the value settles for the FMC lithium spinoff. If the price-to-earnings ratio is high enough, then they would look to create a pure-play lithium business by selling off non-lithium units. If FMC Corp and Albemarle Corporation do end up completing these spin-offs, that will be good news for the valuations of all lithium players as the market will put clear valuation numbers on these larger pure play lithium businesses which will help provide valuation benchmarks for other small cap lithium players.

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    China’s Tianqi Lithium Corp. has struck a deal to buy a 24% stake in Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE:SQM), or SQM, for $4.07 billion, the companies involved said on Thursday. 

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    While FMC’s lithium business is only a small part of its total business, it’s quite large relative to other industry players. Most industry experts peg the company as the fourth or fifth largest producer of lithium in the world, behind Albemarle (NYSE:ALB) and Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile, or SQM (NYSE:SQM)– both of which also have businesses other than lithium — and China’s Ganfeng. China’s Tianqi was neck and neck with FMC for No. 4, according to an estimate from a few years ago by lithium expert Joe Lowry, who runs Global Lithium LLC.

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

Before American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL) merged with U.S. Airways, the latter company had ordered 22 dual-aisle Airbus A350 passenger jets. After the merger, American, long a top Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) customer, decided to review the order for the legacy Airbus jets and consider the newer Airbus A330neo and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

According to a report from Bloomberg late Friday, American has selected the 787 to replace the inherited order for 22 A350s. The airline has delayed delivery of the A350s twice, once in 2016 and again last year, a reasonably sure sign that the order would be canceled. For the record, American denies that it has made a final decision between the A330 and the 787.

Bloomberg reported that Airbus officials said Friday that negotiations with American have ended because the company could not match Boeing’s price. The 787-9 has a list price of $264.6 million, compared to a list price of $284.6 million for the Airbus A350-900, although American’s price for either plane likely would have been discounted by about 50%.
