Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

Value investing is easily one of the most popular ways to find great stocks in any market environment. After all, who wouldn’t want to find stocks that are either flying under the radar and are compelling buys, or offer up tantalizing discounts when compared to fair value?

One way to find these companies is by looking at several key metrics and financial ratios, many of which are crucial in the value stock selection process. Let’s put KNOT Offshore Partners LP (KNOP Quick QuoteKNOP ) stock into this equation and find out if it is a good choice for value-oriented investors right now, or if investors subscribing to this methodology should look elsewhere for top picks:

PE Ratio

A key metric that value investors always look at is the Price to Earnings Ratio, or PE for short. This shows us how much investors are willing to pay for each dollar of earnings in a given stock, and is easily one of the most popular financial ratios in the world. The best use of the PE ratio is to compare the stock’s current PE ratio with: a) where this ratio has been in the past; b) how it compares to the average for the industry/sector; and c) how it compares to the market as a whole.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market was quiet on Wednesday, with different benchmarks reacting to a variety of news events. The release of minutes from the Federal Reserve’s most recent monetary policy meeting generally confirmed what most investors had believed about the central bank’s future course of action, and that helped send the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500modestly higher. Yet weakness in key technology stocks caused the Nasdaq Composite to lag its peers. Several stocks posted strong advances, and Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN), Kandi Technologies Group (NASDAQ:KNDI), and Magellan Health (NASDAQ:MGLN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Jason Hall, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Matt DiLallo(Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Overall, earnings at both Williams and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) were down slightly versus the year-ago period due to asset sales, while cash flow modestly increased thanks to lower interest expenses.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Simpler organizational structures could yield significant benefits for individual investors. In addition to being easier to follow and understand, it will make it easier than ever to own some of the most important pieces of energy infrastructure in the United States. The proposed merger between Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and Williams Partners LP (NYSE:WPZ) is a great example, as it owns some of the best natural gas infrastructure in the United States. Here’s why investors should be bullish on the multi-billion dollar merger.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Natural gas pipeline giant Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) reported mixed second-quarter results after the close Wednesday. Earnings declined fractionally due to asset sales and some higher costs. Cash flow, on the other hand, moved slightly higher thanks in part to lower interest expenses as a result of debt reduction. However, while both numbers underwhelmed in Q2, they should head much higher in the coming year because Williams has several expansion projects under way that should boost its bottom line.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Sohu.com(NASDAQ:SOHU)is still struggling to fire on all cylinders, but investors nonetheless bid shares of the dot-com pioneer higher on Friday after it posted mixed fourth-quarter results. Revenue clocked in at $482.2 million for the final three months of 2018, a 5% decline from a year earlier, but a 5% sequential improvement.

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), Camping World Holdings (NYSE:CWH), andSohu.com(NASDAQ:SOHU)have taken a beating this year. They’re among the biggest losers through the first three quarters of 2018. Let’s go over why I think they have a shot at bouncing back in the next three months.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Sogou’s shares are prone to big swings for a couple of simple reasons.

    As a Chinese business, many American investors don’t feel connected to Sogou’s business and might not have access to some important sources of information about this company and its stock. Though Sogou has been around for nearly a decade now, it only entered the public markets in November of 2017. It’s a new ticker, untested on the market, and not always easily understood through year-over-year or longer-term analyses. At the IPO, Chinese internet giants Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) combined for a total ownership of 82% of Sogu’s business. Those stakes later declined to 71%, but Sohu and Tencent remain Sogou’s largest shareholders, with 96% of the voting power in shareholder elections and votes. Regular investors hold a very small stake in Sogou, which tends to boost the stock’s volatility.

    Moreover, Chinese regulators launched an investigation of Sogou in June, forcing the company to shut down parts of its online advertising operations for 10 days in early July. The company is accused of showing video ads that insulted a national hero. That blackout will reduce Sogou’s third-quarter revenues by a significant but unannounced amount.

Best Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Small-cap stocks and the related exchange-traded funds have been outperforming large-cap rivals for several months now. That's not new news, but what's interesting is the margins by which smaller companies are outpacing larger firms.

For the three months ended June 1, the S&P SmallCap 600 Index is up 9.1 percent compared to just 2.1 percent for the S&P 500. The $41.69 billion iShares Core S&P Small-Cap ETF (NYSE: IJR) is one of several ETFs tracking the S&P SmallCap 600 Index.

What Happened

“Small caps just outperformed large caps for three consecutive months for the first time since Sep. 2016,” said S&P Dow Jones Indices in a note out Monday. “From Feb. through May, the S&P SmallCap 600 (TR) outpaced the S&P 500 (TR) by 9.5 percent. It is the biggest premium realized in a three month period since the three months ending in May 2002. In fact, outperformance this big has only happened in a three month period twelve times in history since Sep. 1989.”

Underscoring the strength in small-caps, each of the 11 sectors represented in the S&P SmallCap 600 generated positive returns last month.

Why It's Important

There's more to the story of all small-cap sectors delivering gains in May.

Very few hedge fund managers start with $2 billion from investor George Soros. One who did, Scott Bessent, has already given much of it back.

As Bessent has gathered capital since his firm’s 2016 launch, he has returned Soros’s money as part of an arrangement between the two, according to a person familiar with Soros’s family office who requested anonymity. Soros had $853 million remaining in a managed account at Key Square Group at the end of 2017, according to a March regulatory filing.

Bessent, who established a strong track record as the chief investment officer at Soros Fund Management, has gathered assets at Key Square while mostly outperforming rival macro managers. The New York-based firm had assets of about $5.1 billion at the end of last year, according to a filing.

“Soros is a very visible name,” said Richard Klitzberg, whose namesake firm helps hedge funds find investors. “If you are running money for him and you are putting up good numbers, everybody in the world wants a piece of you.”

The initial rollout will include 300 MW of solar, with the potential to expand up to 1,000 MW. But whether or not that comes close to matching the electricity generation of an equivalent deployment of solar in the United States depends on a host of factors.
