    As of December 2017, Greenlight Re’s major (10%+) long positions were General Motors (GM), Brighthouse Financial (BHF), gold (GLD), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), and Mylan (MYL). It also holds a long position in Micron (MU), which was the best positive contributor to its portfolio in the first quarter of 2018. These long positions were balanced by shorts in Tesla (TSLA), Netflix (NFLX), and other “bubble basket” stocks. The portfolio is also short Assured Guaranty (AGO), a municipal bond insurer, a position which is hedged by a simultaneous long in Puerto Rican debt. Overall, the portfolio is 93% gross long and 65% gross short. Unlike most insurance portfolios, just 0.5% of investments are in debt instruments and, in fact, Greenlight Re’s short portfolio was 11% allocated to sovereign debt.

    For the third quarter, the company reported cash and equivalents of $470.4 million, while net income came in at $50 million (includes a gain of $78.7 million from the Immunomedics’ warrant). Without the one-time gain, its loss of $28.7 million would still be an improvement over net loss of $31.8 million for the same quarter last year. For the fourth quarter, the company is guiding for ADCETRIS sales in the range of $82 million to $84 million (total revenue of $128 million to $130 million). In addition to the growing opportunity for ADCETRIS (peak sales in excess of $1 billion) and the intriguing prospects of tucatinib, the company has a promising pipeline of ADC candidates and immuno-oncology assets. Partnered programs with the likes of AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV), Astellas (OTCPK:ALPMY), Genmab (OTCPK:GMXAY), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), Genentech and many more also lend additional credibility to the story.

The Dealer Becomes the Player With OpenDoor Technologies

This means the numbers it reports have nothing to do with the technology investment case. The stock spiked 17% earlier this month after reporting a loss of $144 million, or 24 cents per share, on revenue of $1.2 billion. But the stock is still down on the year.

Residential Housing Bubble

OpenDoor today is a pure play on the residential real estate market. The company is now a real estate speculator, like Zillow (NASDAQ:Z), private equity funds and investors turning homes into Airbnbs (NASDAQ:ABNB).

The rush of private money has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. It has driven residential real estate prices to astounding heights — not just in California, but everywhere. Efforts by cities to create affordable housing have come up against speculators who believe a one-bedroom stick apartment is a gold mine.

Housing prices continued to spike in June. That bubble could pop any day. The end of the eviction moratorium put in place at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic means millions of units might soon hit the market. At that point, the market will have to absorb a lot of capacity in a very short amount of time.

There are people warning about the bubble. Peter Boockvar says the equity of 2020’s buyers could be wiped out by even a small price correction. Any rise in interest rates could trigger it.

Analysts are focusing on the first-time home buyers who would be most affected when the bubble pops. But it’s being fueled by big equity funds and companies like OpenDoor.

Should Investors Buy the Dip in OPEN Stock?

There’s evidence in the price of OPEN stock that public investors are on to the game. OpenDoor stock is down 13.5% from the start of the year. Since peaking in February, it has been cut nearly in half.

Investors are now paying about 4.5 times revenue for OpenDoor based on second-quarter results. But analysts at TipRanks continue to pound the table for it. Their average price target is 30% above its Sep. 7 price.

OpenDoor is supposed to be a “real estate disruptor” and the technology is valuable. Housing affordability should improve if you don’t have to lose 15% of a home’s value each time you move. That’s 6% commissions while selling, 6% while buying and 3% for moving.

If OpenDoor’s growth were the result of technology, then our Mark Hake would be right and it would be undervalued. But buying OPEN stock is no longer about the “contactless” digitalization of the economy. It’s about whether the homes it’s buying today will be sold for more tomorrow.

The Bottom Line on OPEN Stock

Technology is supposed to fuel deflation, not inflation. If you’re buying OPEN stock, you’re betting on inflation.

In its second-quarter report, OpenDoor management bragged that it held $2.7 billion in housing inventory at the end of June. It crows about buying 8,494 homes and contracts to buy 8,158 more. So long as homes keep rising in value, OpenDoor will report positive results.

But even after buying all that inventory in the second quarter, OpenDoor lost money. What happens if housing prices reverse, even a little? What happens if the incoming supply from foreclosures isn’t snapped up? What happens if interest rates rise as the Fed’s bond purchases are reduced?

I worry about that as a homeowner. I shouldn’t have to worry about that as a tech investor.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Falling prices and a drop in Chinese investment are on track to reduce year-over-year spending on new solar energy projects, according to Bloomberg NEF (BNEF). In the first six months of 2018, solar investment has dropped by 19% compared to the first half of 2017, and BNEF expects the downward trend to gather momentum in the second half of the year.

In the first half of this year, investment in clean energy projects declined just 1% year over year, and in the second quarter investment actually increased by 8%. The uptick was due primarily to a 33% increase in new wind power projects. Of the $138.2 billion invested in the first half of the year, $76.7 billion was devoted to wind projects.

In the first half of the year, China invested $35.1 billion in solar projects, down 29% year over year. BNEF analysts can foresee the first-ever decline in world solar installation for 2018. In 2017, new solar capacity totaled 98 gigawatts (GW), far more than any other technology, renewable or nonrenewable.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: BYD Company Limited (BYDDY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Current subsidies in China were reduced by 20% in 2017 and will be reduced by 40% in 2019 and 100% by 2021.

Best Stocks To Watch Right Now: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The company’s Powder River Basinassets also generated strong drilling results, with several wells topping 1,000 BOE/D. Finally, while the company did drill four wells in the Bakken, it has deferred completing them until later this year. That program is one to keep an eye on given the results Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) delivered last quarter, when it completed record-setting wells in the Three Forks and Middle Bakken formations.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), likewise, said it would stick with its $2.3 billion drilling budget, which is enough money to grow oil and gas production in the U.S. by 25% to 30% versus last year. Because of that capital discipline, Marathon is on pace to produce more than $500 million in excess cash this year, and that’s assuming crude averages $60 a barrel.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That efficiency was evident in the first quarter when companies like Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) drilled record-breaking wells. In Devon Energy’s case, it completed two of the highest-rate wells ever drilled in the nearly 100-year history of the Delaware Basin. Those wells, when combined with some prolific ones in the STACK shale play, enabled Devon to produce a huge profit in the first quarter. Marathon Oil, meanwhile, drilled record-setting wells in two formations of the Bakken region as well as several high-rate ones in the STACK, which fueled strong profits for the driller in the first quarter.

European Union tariffs were set to take effect today on more than $3 billion in U.S. goods, representing the latest escalation in trade tensions between the U.S. and trade partners across the globe. Yet investors were ready for a break after several days of poor performance for the overall market, and good news from several companies helped set a positive mood on Wall Street. Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), WillScot (NASDAQ: WSC), and Del Taco Restaurants (NASDAQ:TACO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil Corporation’s (NYSE:MRO) transformation into a shale-focused oil growth company is starting to pay dividends. That was evident in the second quarter as the company reported strong production results across all four of its U.S. resource plays. Because of that, the oil producer was able to boost its full-year growth forecast for the second time this year without increasing its capital budget.
