This is the first in a short series of articles that I will publish over the next several weeks in which I assess stocks within the oil and gas sector, from Houston-based Conoco Phillips (NYSE:COP) to Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM). Shares of E&P companies have largely trended downward in lockstep with depressed commodities prices dating back to 2014 and have significantly underperformed almost all other sectors. Shares of these companies are on average currently sitting nearly 20% below their respective 52-week highs. But, with fresh OPEC production cuts in place through early next year and record predictions for summer driving in the U.S., is now the time to “buy the dip” on an E&P energy company?

stock market usa: FORM Holdings (FH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Looking for a quick, money-making trading idea? Put FORM Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:FH) on your watchlist, if not yet in your portfolio. FH shares are knocking on the door of a breakout move, and one more nudge could do the trick.

    There are a couple of factors in play here. One of the is the converging wedge pattern that’s developed after the October-December finally stabilized. The upper boundary of that wedge at $2.40 has been tested several times since late last year, but FORM Holdings could never get past the hurdle. At the same time, several key moving average lines seem to be acting as support — even if unevenly — keeping FH positioned well for a breakout effort.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Yet some stocks didn’t participate in the rally, instead contending with negative news of their own. Zoe’s Kitchen (NYSE:ZOES), GOL Lineas Aereas Inteligentes (NYSE:GOL), and Sarepta Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SRPT) were among the worst performers on the day.

    Thanksgiving is almost here and aside from featuring a turkey, most Thanksgiving dinners will include items from a range of consumer stocks including Campbell Soup Company (NYSE: CPB), Kraft Heinz Co (NASDAQ: KHC), Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc (NYSE: FDP) and McCormick & Company (NYSE: MKC) along with aThanksgiving turkey from Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL)or Seaboard Corporation (NYSEAMEX: SEB). According tothe American Farm Bureau Federation,a classic Thanksgiving dinner will cost$49.87 for a gathering of 10 orjust under $5 per person down from 2015s all-time high of $50.11.

  • [By John Udovich]

    Thanksgiving is almost here but the exit of both Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NYSE: PPC) and Smithfield Foods (NYSE: SFD) to focus on their chicken or pork businesses (the latter was also acquired by the Chinese) leaves just two big Thanksgiving turkey stocks, Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) and Seaboard Corporation (NYSEAMEX: SEB), for investors to consider. According to the American Far Bureau, a 16-pound turkey will (on average) come in at a total of $22.74 this year or roughly $1.42 per pound for a decrease of 2 cents per pound or a total of 30 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2015. The price drop may be a transition back to the norm as the significant bird flu outbreak last year hurt the nations supply of both turkey and eggs.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Peyto (OTCPK:PEYUF) is a Canadian E&P company whose production profile is dominated by dry gas (92%). With the low price of natural gas, it has been a tough couple of years for Peyto’s shareholders. That said, the company has maintained its dividend payout through the commodity price downturn. Recently natural gas prices have recovered from their lows, but Peyto’s stock has not kept pace. In fact, it’s gone the other direction:

As the chart above show, the stock is down ~13% over the past three months as natural gas – as measure by both the Henry Hub and AECO indexes – has rallied sharply with significant winter withdrawals and forecasts that additional cold weather is on the way:

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

The company’s flagship drug, Contrave, is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. The drug regulates appetite, energy use, and the central nervous system.

OREX is currently trading at $3.30 per share and is down 79% as of Jan. 9 year over year (YOY).

    Arena is out of the obesity drug business, but what about Orexigen Therapeutics (NASDAQ:OREX) or VIVUS (NASDAQ:VVUS)? The problem is that they’re both too dependent on their respective obesity drugs, Contrave and Qsymia. Neither of the drugs have performed up to expectations.

    While Trump’s nuclear tweet appears to have taken some folks off guard, the fact is that the U.S. has been planning a major upgrade and refurbishmentof its nuclear arsenal for quite some time — since at least the early years of the second Obama administration, in fact. As far back as three years ago, we were writing about a U.S. Air Force effort to begin upgrading the nation’s aging fleet of Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles — a contract that Aerojet Rocketdyne (NYSE:AJRD), among others, is counting on to juice its rocket revenues. Rival rocket scientist Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) is bidding on the same contract, and whether it’s Aerojet or Orbital that eventually ends up winning this piece of the nuclear rearmament project, there should be money aplenty to go around.

what is stock

No company’s market cap has ever reached $800 billion. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is about to touch that goal. It only has to go 9% higher. And, based on the stock surge this year and speculation that the iPhone 8 will trigger unprecedented demand for the smartphone, it may breach that level soon.

Apple has posted the largest increase in share price this year of any component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It trades 20% higher than at the start of 2017, at a record price of $139. The Dow has risen only 6% to 20,954.

A number of securities analysts who cover Apple have prices targets well in excess of its current price. As just one example, Rob Cihra of Guggenheim Securities recently raised his price target from $150 to $180. Manyanalysts have price targets in excess of the $150 level.

There are two primary mitigating factors to a continued run up in Apple’s share price. One is the quarterly earnings report at the end of April. The most recent quarter set a high hurdle, which analysts do not think the company can approach again soon. This is because it was the period that includes the year-end shopping season. Revenue was $79 million, and Apple sold 78.3 million iPhones. Its forecast for the current quarter:

    If you remember about a year ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention let the world know that consumers who had purchased the China-produced flooring from Lumber Liquidators Holdings (NYSE:LL) were roughly three times more likely to fall ill with cancer. That rate was much higher than earlier calculations following the 2015 broadcast by CBS’ 60 Minutes.The stock shed much of its value since the 2015 airing, but rebounded 17% on Tuesday after it reported a narrower-than-expected loss during the fourth quarter, offering investors a slight amount of hope going forward.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Looking for a quick, money-making trading idea? Put FORM Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:FH) on your watchlist, if not yet in your portfolio. FH shares are knocking on the door of a breakout move, and one more nudge could do the trick.

    There are a couple of factors in play here. One of the is the converging wedge pattern that’s developed after the October-December finally stabilized. The upper boundary of that wedge at $2.40 has been tested several times since late last year, but FORM Holdings could never get past the hurdle. At the same time, several key moving average lines seem to be acting as support — even if unevenly — keeping FH positioned well for a breakout effort.
