Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own For 2018: Matador Resources Company(MTDR)

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.

    But despite positioning that would thrash other similar companies, Resolute fought through thanks to significant and efficient productivity in its Delaware Basin assets. Wangler believes the strengthening of previous concern areas will make the company a solid investment.

    Matador Resources Co (NYSE: MTDR), $32 Price Target

    Matador has grown its reserves throughout the commodity cycle, as well as its production and cash flow. Haas also likes the company’s history of identifying and acquiring acreage early and cheaply. Much of the analyst’s positive outlook is derived from Matador’s successful monetization of midstream assets and pattern of reinvestment.

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Jefferies reported on Monday that it has lifted its price target on National-Oilwell Varco, Inc. (NOV).

    The firm has reaffirmed a “Buy” rating on NOV, and has raised the company’s price target from $84 to $91. This price target suggests a 14% increase from the stock’s current price of $78.24.

    Analyst Brad Handler noted that NOV’s weak margin will likely rebound in 2014 and the chances of a dividend increase are high.

    Looking forward, the firm has lifted its order estimates for FY2013 from $10.8 billion to $11.3 billion. FY2014 earnings estimates have been raised from $6.40 to $6.50 per share and FY2015 estimates have been increased from $7.65 to $7.95 per share.

    National-Oilwell Varco shares were up 76 cents, or 0.97% during pre-market trading Monday. The stock is up 14% YTD.

Best High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc.(ZLTQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    This week, Botox maker Allergan plc (NYSE:AGN) shelled out $2.5 billion for body-sculpting outfit Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc (NASDAQ:ZLTQ). The pairing is a nice opportunity for both organizations to cross-sell to one another’s customers. Allergan’s Botox customers seeking a more youthful face will also likely want the better body Zeltiq Aesthetics provides, and Zeltiq Aesthetics’ customers are natural candidates for Botox injections that Allergan facilitates.

    The acquisition, though, is just a microcosm of a bigger trend that’s still picking up steam. That trend is, as the industry’s capabilities to restore youth, slim waists, whiten teeth, improve skin, and nip and tuck here and there improve with science, demand for these increasingly effective ‘tweaks’ is soaring. Names like the aforementioned Allergan, Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ:CYNO), Zeltiq Aesthetics and Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALGN) are all driving impressive growth. And, they’re all looking to expand their footprint in front of the rising tide.

    Not every name riding this growth wave is going to be a large cap stock or a household name though. There’s a small cap stock called RepliCel Life Sciences (OTCMKTS:REPCF, CVE:RP) that could soon be turning a lot of heads not just of investors, but of potential suitors.

    In simplest terms, RepliCel Life Sciences has two key sciences that serve as the foundation for three therapies and one medical device.

    The first of the two biological premises is based on the company’s non-bulbar dermal sheath fibroblast platform, and currently includes treatments for chronic tendinosis and skin aging. The second is the company’s dermal sheath cup (DSC) cell platform for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness).

    The three marketable products those two sciences are driving are RCT-01 for tendon repair, RCS-01 for skin rejuvenation, and RCH-01 for hair regeneration. The device is a dermal injector – currently categorized as R

    Becton Dickinson (BDX) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after agreeing to pay $24 billion for C.R. Bard (BCR).

    Becton Dickinsondropped 4.4% to $177.07, while the S&P 500 rose 1.1% to 2,374.15. C.R. Bard jumped 20% to $302.41, making it the best performing stock in the S&P 500.

    Leerink’sRichard Newitter andRavi Misra argue that “growth doesn’t come cheap.” They explain:

    We had expected BDX’s M&A engine would eventually resume as the company moved into its third year post the 2015 CareFusion (CFN) acquisition; however, we do think the expectation was for tuck-in or mid-sized type transactions. This transaction is certainly on the bigger side, and will mark the largest in BDX’s history just as BDX wraps up year 2 post the CFN integration. Naturally this could raise some questions as to whether mgmt is “biting off more than it can chew.” But, size (and the hefty price tag) aside, the rationale is not entirely out of left field in our view. BCR will benefit BDX through a higher top-line & GM profile and provides several fast-growing product offerings in underpenetrated markets (i.e. PICCs, Lutonix/Drug Coated Balloons, targeted temperature mgmt). BCR’s Foley catheters and PICC products should complement BDX’s portfolio & strategy aimed at offering a single complete end- to-end medication management & safety solution to hospitals. Also, BCR’s emerging markets (EM) growth is accelerating, which should help BDX’s EM division, which has been experiencing slowing growth in recent years.

    Becton Dickinson’s market capitalization fell to $37.7 billion today from $39.4 billion on Friday. It reported net income of $976 million on sales of $12.5 billion in 2016.

Top High Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: Haier Electronics Group Co., Ltd. (HRELF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    The main business units of the Hong Leong Asia are the Diesel Engines Unit – China Yuchai , the Consumer Products Unit – Henan Xinfei (now marketed as “Frestec”), and the Building Materials Unit – BMU. The other business units in the company are the Industrial Packaging Unit – Rex and the Air-conditioning Systems Unit – Airwell. As the majority of the business units namely Yuchai, Xinfei and Airwell, operate in China (more than 80% of total revenue), the continual slowdown of the economic growth in China coupled with increasing competition has adversely affected both the revenue and the profitability. Particularly for the consumer products unit, its small scale has severely impacted its competitiveness given aggressive larger players like Haier (OTCPK:HRELF), Midea, Feilong Electric, and Hefei Meiling.
