Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

On May 21, 2018, Micron (MU) held their annual analyst and investor conference. The conference had many exciting bombshells including a $10 billion stock buyback program and much discussion about Micron’s positioning in the DRAM and NAND market. Many articles on Seeking Alpha have already covered the conference in depth so we are not going to do so here. However, we do encourage you to read the conference transcript that can be found here, and an excellent article by Joe Albano entitled “Micron: The $10 Billion Shot Heard ‘Round The World.”

The one thing that was conspicuously missing from the investor conference was any details or specifics about the company’s 3D XPoint technology. Sanjay Mehrotra, Micron’s CEO, in his presentation did address 3D XPoint and hinted that Micron intends to start shipping 3D XPoint in 2019.

In terms of 3D XPoint, it’s a technology that has exciting potential 10 times – better chip density is achievable compared to DRAM and thousand times better endurance light capability compared to NAND, and thousand times faster than NAND as well. These specifications really create a significant value proposition for 3D XPoint for solutions that are well placed between the DRAM and the NAND in memory and the storage hierarchy. We are working with our customers in terms of product development. And as we have said earlier, we will be having products in 3D XPoint in 2019, launching those products in the latter part of 2019 timeframe.

    Wednesday was a great day on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average pushing ahead to gains of around 300 points and other major benchmarks following suit with similar-sized rises. Fears about potential European financial problems vanished as quickly as they had appeared on Tuesday, and bounces in crude oil prices and interest rates seemed to confirm that the previous mind-set favoring continued growth for the overall economy was back in place. Yet some companies still had bad news that sent their shares lower. Michael Kors Holdings (NYSE:KORS), Chico’s FAS (NYSE:CHS), and Daktronics (NASDAQ:DAKT) were among the worst performers on the day.

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, “machinery”, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.
