Top Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

This is the inaugural article within a series on German Dividend Champions. These are great dividend investments in German stocks which are currently undervalued and offer significant upside potential. Compared to US stocks like PG or JNJ even the German heavyweights have less impressive and long-reaching dividend track records. That’s why I regularly will only refer to historic data beginning in 2000. This first part covers BASF which is only tradable as ADR on US stock exchanges BASF SE ADR (OTCQX:BASFY).

All values in the article are in EUR and stock data refers to BASF stock traded on Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

    Meanwhile, TheStreet will drop a podcast with Carnival Corp. (CCL) CEO Arnold Donald this weekend. Donald and I talked Wednesday afternoon about his rise to the top gig at Carnival and overall cruise line industry trends. Similar to what I learned from talking to Norwegisn Cruise Line (NCLH) CEO Frank Del Rio last week, I came away thinking Carnival is also undervalued here (stock is down 5% this year). While there are a good number of new ships hitting waters in 2019 and beyond, the consumer demand is such that more ships are warranted. Risks: surging oil prices (it takes a lot of fuel to run a cruise ship) and a recession (meaning somewhat empty new ships).

    Carnival (NYSE:CCL) recently announced earnings results for its fiscal third quarter, which includes some of its strongest sales months of the year. The leading cruise ship operator outpaced management’s growth targets for the third straight quarter while posting modest profit gains. Its outlook predicted a slight slowdown in vacation traffic growth, though, as the company works to find and maintain the ideal balance between demand and supply.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Greenfield African countries like Burkina Faso are starting to look very attractive for mining as the South African mining sector continues to face numerous headwinds. This week, shares of major South African mining stock like DRDGOLD Limited (NYSE: DRD), Gold Fields Limited (NYSE: GFI), Harmony Gold Mining Co (NYSE: HMY) and Sibanye-Stillwater (NYSE: SBGL) fell off amid news about further company retrenchments and a warning from the ruling African National Congress (ANC) against doing more job cuts.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now: Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    The production issue for batteries may improve with added input from partner Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY). They currently produce battery cells for Tesla in Nevada, and in Japan. At their recent earnings call CEO Kazuhiro Tsuga said they were looking at manufacturing battery cells at a new plant in China in conjunction with Tesla. They also predicted their automation energy business profit would double this year. This can be seen as a vote of confidence in Tesla and a bullish sign for Tesla stock. However, according to reports in the Nikkei Asian Review, there is as yet no definite commitment for a joint venture in China. Panasonic is the world’s largest battery supplier for EV’s.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

If Trump is true to his word and this indeed takes place, this has to be good for the likes of Tesla. Remember, Tesla will have strong competition in EV’s from the likes of General Motors (NYSE:GM)and Ford in the next few years.

    Alas, we have a lot of Ebenezer Scrooges out there in corporate America that either dont pay dividends at all or dont pay nearly enough of them. Realistically, not every company can be a dividend-paying powerhouse. Cyclical companies like General Motors Company (GM) or Ford Motor Company (F) have wildly erratic businesses and need to keep a little extra cash on hand for the lean years. (Of course, even then, weak share prices have made the pair of them look generous via nearly 5% yields.)

We estimate that VECO currently has roughly 80% global market share for MOCVD tools used to make LEDs.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Buy Right Now: Gener8 Maritime, Inc.(GNRT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shanthi Rexaline]

    Frontline might be evaluating a new tanker company target such as Gener8 Maritime Inc (NYSE: GNRT), away from DHT Holdings Inc (NYSE: DHT), Lewis said. This was substantiated by the fact that Frontline sold 1.7 million shares of DHT in March, followed by 2.4 million shares in April and May. Though Frontline holds about 6.8 million shares of DHT, the Credit Suisse analyst said a deal is unlikely.

Some brokerages are forging ahead with a new retirement-savings rule even though the Trump administration has postponedand could cancelits implementation.

The fiduciary rule was set to take effect on Monday, but the Labor Department has officially delayed it for 60 days starting April 7. In that time, the department can revise it, rescind it or request another delay.

The rule would have required brokers who oversee $3 trillion in tax-advantaged retirement savings to act in their clients best interest. That is a stricter standard than many brokerages were using. After the rule was unveiled in April 2016, some brokerages moved clients from commission-based accounts that could run afoul of the rule to fee-only accounts.

dow stock: Fortress Investment Group LLC(FIG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market continued to climb sharply on Wednesday, sending major market benchmarks to record highs yet again and propelling the Dow Jones Industrials up more than 100 points. Economic data continued to support the notion that the U.S. economy remains strong, and rising inflation levels led many to conclude that the Federal Reserve is more likely than ever to follow through on its promise to keep lifting short-term interest rates in 2017. Rising bond yields reflected investors’ reluctance to hold onto fixed-income investments in anticipation of higher rates, prompting some to shift assets into the stock market. Several companies also reported, andFortress Investment Group (NYSE:FIG), Editas Medicine (NASDAQ:EDIT), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the top performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

dow stock: CA Inc.(CA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 15.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 6.8%. Weakness in the company’s revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.

    Net operating cash flow has decreased to $45.00 million or 31.81% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm’s growth is significantly lower.

    Last but not least, the conversion and consolidation of the American healthcare colossus will be a bonanza for tech companies engaged in networking, software, and the cloud. Those best suited to handle the task are the usual suspects: Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), IBM (NYSE: IBM), CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA), Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL), and Hewlett Packard (NYSE: HPE).

    We rate CA INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C+. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed – some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself. 

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Software industry average. The net income has significantly decreased by 32.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $256.00 million to $174.00 million.

dow stock: Concho Resources Inc.(CXO)

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.
