Hot Undervalued Stocks For 2018

Willamette Valley Vineyards (NASDAQ: WVVI) is a nano-cap winery located in Turner, Oregon. The company produces various mid end, premium, and ultra-premium wines including the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Ros茅 and Riesling varieties. We usually cover tech stocks but we are big fans of wine and even bigger fans of undervalued stocks; WVVI certainly fits the bill for both. WVVI has enjoyed tremendous average sales and EBITDA growth of 12.8% and 16% respectively for the past 3 years. During the same time period, investors have been met with a modest stock growth of 23.75% from $6.10 to $8 currently. With a market cap of only $40 million and a fair P/E of 22, we believe there is still undiscovered potential for this profitable company and its drought-free wine business.

The Economy of Wine

In the past 6 years, United States wine consumption has seen healthy growth from 336.3 million 9 liter cases in 2010 to 383.9 million 9 liter cases in 2015, This resulted in the total retail value of wine increasing from $46.5 billion in 2010 to $55.8 billion in 2015, a significant 20% growth rate. According to a recent report by goodfruits.com, this growth trend continued in 2016 as “September U.S. wine sales rose from $3.3 billion to $3.7 billion, helping set an annual pace to boost the industry’s overall retail value for the 11th consecutive year”. The prior three 5 year periods has seen total retail value increase by 8.8 billion (2001-2005), 5 billion (2006-2010) and 7.2 (2011-2015). We expect the wine market retail value to grow 1.5% (average growth of the last 3 years) in 2017 and surpass $62 billion by 2020. This growth in wine consumption is further fueled by the inauguration of Donald Trump, whose victory has left many oppositions drinking to a stupor. Under these conditions, we believe specialize vineyards like WVVI are going to earn steady and growing profits for years to come.

Hot Undervalued Stocks For 2018: Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc(RRTS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Tuesday was another down day for the Dow Jones Industrials, which fell more than 100 points to drop further below the 20,000 level. But broader market measures were mixed, and the Nasdaq Composite even managed to gain ground. Continued uncertainty about the impact of new policies from the U.S. federal government have kept markets a bit turbulent, and the beginning of a two-day meeting of the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee could set the tone for monetary policy in 2017. Some stocks had bad news that sent them lower today, and among the worst performers were Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL), Roadrunner Transportation Systems (NYSE:RRTS), and Tempur Sealy International (NYSE:TPX). Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    For years, Netflix has been one of the biggest battleground stocks in the market, and along the way, it’s attracted plenty of naysayers.Time Warner(NYSE:TWX) CEO Jeff Bewkes famously compared the streamer to “the Albanian army” in 2010 when asked if it posed a challenge to HBO. Wall Street analysts have regularly bashed the stock. Some have since admitted they were wrong, while others continue to throw shade at the company even after its blockbuster earnings report last night. Let’s take a look at a few of the biggest myths that have circulated about Netflix in recent years and how the company just disproved them.

    Coming toanalyst estimates, theretailer has a mixed track record when it comes to beating analyst estimates. Kroger Co has delivered an earnings beat in 5 out of the last 8 quarters as per estimize database and hasbeaten revenue estimates in only 4 out of the previous 8 quarters, with the revenue beat coming in the last four quarters.On thetop line front, Wall Street expects Kroger to report revenues of $27.46 billion, 3.4% higher than what the company had reported last year. Analysts expect the company to report an EPS of 40 cents per share, whilethe company had reported a similar EPS of 41 cents in the third quarter last year. With brick and mortar retail behemoth Walmart (NYSE:WMT) delivering strong results, there are also high expectations from the Cincinnati, Ohio based supermarket chain. The guidance will be crucial with the holiday season around. Kroger stock is on a steady uptrend and investors would be hoping for a post-earnings pop. The earnings whisper number is at 43 cents per share, which suggests a 3 cents beat. However, investors need to be cautious as the KR stock technical chartsuggests the stock is overbought zone. Both popular momentum indicators Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Bollinger Bands suggest that Kroger shares are overbought. Generlly, the combination of the above two indicators is considered as a strong signal. This could mean the upside from here could be limited.

Shares of casino operators have been on the rise after news broke that monthly gaming revenue in Macau increased for the first time since May of 2014, likely driven mostly by new openings. The news sent shares of Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) up 7.4%, shares of Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) up 8.7%, shares of Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) up 3.4%, and shares of MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) up 2.9% over the course of two trading sessions. In what follows, I will look at the data and give an indication of what it should mean for investors moving forward.

A look at Macau

In the table below, you can see year-over-year changes in gaming revenue for Macau so far this year. Every single month has seen a deterioration in the market but that decline appeared to improve over the past couple of months, leading me to state in a prior article that although I was not going to get my hopes up, the stabilization may lead investors to realize down the line that we have hit or are nearing a turning point for the industry. The one exception to the year-over-year decline in sales for the region came in August, when revenue rose 1.1% to 18.8 billion patacas (the equivalent of $2.4 billion) and this seems to confirm my earlier sentiment.

    The importance of cellular connectivity for wearables, particularly for smartwatches, has been a theme of mine since last year, and I’m glad to see other analysts and organizations starting to pick up on it. I’ve discussed Qualcomm’s (NASDAQ:QCOM) development of the Snapdragon Wear SOC that manufacturers are using for Android Wear 2 smartwatches with LTE connectivity, such as the LG Watch Sport (OTC:LGEAF). Such watches provide voice calling and cellular data connections and anticipate the future direction of the smartwatch.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2018

(Editor’s note: There is much greater liquidity on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under ticker Z01).

The Elevator Pitch

Zooplus (OTC:ZOPLY) (OTC:ZLPSF) is the leading online retailer of pet food and supplies in Europe. Generally, in a commoditized market such as selling pet food, the lowest cost provider with the best customer service has the “right to win”. We believe that Zooplus will be this winner, given its structural cost advantage versus its competitors (which we explore below). Additionally, customer satisfaction is extremely high, and we can clearly see customers’ appreciation for the company’s value proposition, as evidenced by the 94% sales retention rate. These unbeatable low prices and high customer satisfaction have led to a 31% annualized sales growth rate since 2010, while still possessing a long runway for continued expansion.

We believe the market is underestimating the long-term earnings power of the firm and consequently significantly undervaluing the company. For instance, the stock is currently trading at 0.9x 2016 sales while comparable acquisitions have taken place at 2-6x multiples. Additionally, we believe at maturity, the business will have normalized operating margins of 8-10%, implying a valuation of ~10x normalized EBIT.

    Skyworks Solutions gained 13% to $88.67, while the S&P 500 rose 0.3% to 2,271.31.

    Oppenheimer’s Rick Schafer and team argue that Skyworks’ “growth [is] back on track.” They explain:

    We expect Skyworks to deliver above-market growth driven by 1) continued smartphone content gains; 2) China share gains through strengthening baseband partnerships and demand for integrated (vs. discrete) RF solutions; 3) seasonal uptick at Samsung; and 4) continued double-digit RF complexity increases. With its “one-stop-shop” systems-level approach, we seeSkyworks uniquely positioned to benefit from rising RF content. We reiterate Outperform and raise PT to $105 from $100.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

Last week’s earnings announcement by Total SA (NYSE:TOT) served notice to the markets that the company will be on the offensive going forward.

The company beat earnings on the top and bottom lines by a wide margin, earning $.96 a share on Revenues of $42.3B, beating street estimates by 8%. It also increased its dividend to 0.62 euros.

As I study the energy space, it appears to me that the best bang for the buck for Total SA may be buying Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) at a discount.

I recently wrote an article about BP plc (NYSE:BP) (which I believe is making a yearly low today) buying Chesapeake, but after more research, it seems Total SA would be even better served by buying this undervalued company.

One of the knocks against Total SA is its lack of US shale presence. In my view, buying up Chesapeake would instantly give Total SA the world class US shale acreage that would otherwise take years to accumulate.

Chesapeake CEO Mr. Doug Lawler recently gave a presentation at the Credit Suisse Energy Summit where he shared some valuable information about the company and its future. I encourage interested investors to click on the link above for detailed information.
