Top Value Stocks To Invest In 2019: National Oilwell Varco, Inc.(NOV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    A few months ago, the 2019 outlook for the oil market among service company CEOs was decidedly bullish. Clay Williams, the CEO of oilfield equipment giant National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV), was among those oil bulls. He stated in his company’s third-quarter earnings report in late October that “we believe the industry is poised to achieve higher levels of activity in 2019.” Others echoed those comments with similarly optimistic tones that higher oil prices throughout most of 2018 would give oil companies the confidence to spend more money in the coming year.

  • [By ]

    That spending is aimed directly at companies like Ensco (NYSE: ESV), which operates offshore drilling rigs, and National Oilwell Varco (NYSE: NOV), which sells everything from fracking fluids to rig instrumentation systems. Both have rallied sharply off their late-December lows, 38% and 20%, respectively. But they are still more than 70% below previous highs from the last up-cycle and could have room to run if business fundamentals continue to brighten.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The energy markets have endured big swings recently, and oilfield services stocks have seen a lot of volatility. Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHGE) got bought by General Electric, but its shares continue to trade separately, and GE has taken steps to reduce its stake in the energy company. Meanwhile, National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV) is a smaller company in the space, but it too has had to deal with weak oil prices and their negative impact on production activity and demand for its products and services.

Hot Financial Stocks To Watch Right Now

Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) has named current J.C. Penney CEO Marvin Ellison as its new president and chief executive. The move is in line with the chain’s efforts to better serve its customer base.

In this segment from Industry Focus: Consumer Goods, Vincent Shen and Dan Kline how Ellison’s hiring fits the narrative management is trying to weave for investors. Despite the company’s best efforts, however, investors do have another option in this industry in Home Depot (NYSE:HD).

A full transcript follows the video.

This video was recorded on May 29, 2018.

Vincent Shen: In terms of big picture takeaway, how bullish are you for the company? Do you think that these various investments that they’re making, these priorities that they’ve set out, do you think that’s enough?

Dan Kline: My opinion on Lowe’s changed very much in the last few quarters. I have a background, my family has a ladder and scaffolding business, so I know some aspect of the contractor world. But I am not handy, as has come up multiple times. And I find shopping at Lowe’s, or Home Depot, torturous. You cannot get someone to pay attention to you. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no sympathy. So to read, for the past year, that they’re addressing the customer on all different levels, everyone from the me to the contractor who knows exactly what he wants and they don’t necessarily have it — the fact that they’re putting that in, and then they brought in a customer-friendly CEO, that takes this from a company that, I believed in their financials, to a company I actually like.

Top 10 Financial Stocks To Invest In 2019

One of the hottest sectors in the stock market the past few years has been the payments industry, as credit card networks, payment platforms, and payment processing companies have outpaced the market. This group is exemplified by companies such as Visa Inc (NYSE:V) and PayPal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:PYPL), whose shares have gained 42% and 64%, respectively, over the past 12 months. But while both have outperformed the S&P 500 index, which makes for a better investment now?

The case for Visa

Many consumers are at least fleetingly familiar with Visa, as the company has about 3.25 billion cards in circulation that were used to make 43.2 billion transactions in the company’s 2018 second quarter.

What some might be surprised to learn, however, is that Visa does not directly lend money to consumers; rather, it makes money by acting as the payment network — think of it as a highway your money travels on — between merchants, consumers, and their banks. A huge advantage to this business model is that, unlike credit card peers American Express Company and Discover Financial Services, Visa is not directly exposed to credit risk. So, when consumers default on credit card loans, Visa is not liable for any of the risk! Of course, the downside is that Visa also does not get to partake in collecting any of the interest on those loans.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

A few weeks ago, we published an article that characterized Gilead (GILD) as a “Value Trap.” That article was a follow-up to an earlier article which used our work on Gilead as an example of how a solid conceptual framework could help investors make better decisions. Both of these articles were based on a 16-page valuation report on Gilead we published to our members in September, 2016.

We caught a lot of flack for the recent characterization of Gilead as a value trap, but our opinion was redeemed on February 7th, when the stock fell heavily after a disappointing earnings announcement.

In today’s article, we’ll take another look at the valuation process – the most important weapon in an investor’s arsenal – in a continuation of the Gilead example. We would invite new readers to read through each of the earlier articles as well, to get a picture of the overall process!

Investing Anecdotes are Dangerous!

What interested us in September 2016, when we made our original analysis of Gilead, was the noise among the value investing community about what a deal Gilead was because the stock was trading at such a low Price-to-Earnings (P/E) ratio (See our article Three Things You Should Know About Gilead).

    As USG Corporation (NYSE:USG) drags its feet on an offer to sell the company for $42 per share, Berkshire intends to use its 30.8% ownership stake to motivate its top brass to make a deal. Berkshire told Bloomberg it intends to vote its shares against USG’s board members who are up for re-election at this year’s annual meeting, a clear message that Buffett is ready to cash in, even if USG’s management and board are not.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.
