Our Top Pick for conservative investors for the coming year is a company that went through a management overhaul in 2015, leaving investors uncertain about the company’s future, observes Crista Huff, editor of Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.
Mattel (MAT) markets toys globally under the brand names Mattel, Fisher-Price, RoseArt, Barbie, AmericanGirl and many more, including strategic relationships with Disney (DIS), Google (GOOGL) and YouTube.
As a result of its prior overhaul, the stock got left in the dust. Consumer goods stocks were additionally tossed aside during the post-election stock market run-up.
That gives investors a buying opportunity in the sector’s undervalued growth stocks, including MAT.
Mattel’s earnings per share, which will finish 2016 with weak 1-2% growth (December year-end), are expected to grow 38% in 2017!
This mid-cap stock’s 2017 price/earnings ratio is 16, and the dividend yield is a huge 5.4%. Mattel typically increases the dividend about once per year.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: CytRx Corporation(CYTR)
- [By Roberto Pedone]
Another under-$10 biotechnology player that’s starting to trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade is CytRx (CYTR), which has an oncology pipeline that includes two programs in clinical development for cancer indications: aldoxorubicin and tamibarotene. This stock has been moving to the upside during the last three months, with shares up by 21%.
If you take a look at the chart for CytRx, you’ll notice that this stock has been trending sideways inside of a consolidation chart pattern for the last two months, with shares moving between $2.27 on the downside and $2.68 on the upside. That consolidation pattern has occurred right above this stock’s 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Shares of CYTR have now started to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $2.49 a share. That move is quickly pushing CYTR within range of triggering an even bigger breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern.
Market players should now look for long-biased trades in CYTR if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.68 to $2.80 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 154,838 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CYTR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.20 to $4 a share.
Traders can look to buy CYTR off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 200-day at $2.33 a share or below more support at $2.27 a share. One can also buy CYTR off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Ambarella, Inc.(AMBA)

Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) wasn’t as scintillating as NVIDIA last year, merely marching in place. However, the provider of video compression and image processing semiconductors has seen its stock pop ninefold since going public at $6 five years ago.

Ambarella, Inc. (AMBA) has been all over the map over the last few years. It has defied gravity both to the up and to the downside, and although today’s suggested short of the stock is strictly technical, we do believe its current share price has once again gotten a little out of line when you compare it to the rest of the markets’ valuation metrics right now.

The company whose technology is behind the low power, high-definition and ultra HD video compression and image processing products,is scheduled to report its fiscal 2018 third-quarter earnings today after the closing bell. AMBA stock has not gone anywhere since its last earnings release and is almost flat but it is losing momentumgoing into earnings, down nearly 7% in the last 5 trading days. This brings us to the question, can earnings lift Ambarella stock? The technical setup has also turned little bearish recently. Will earnings help stem the downtrend in Ambarella stock? Well, first, let’s take a look at the analyst estimates.

Coca-Cola Bottling Co. (NYSE: COKE) had a revenue increase to $2.3 billion in its most recentfiscal year, from $1.7 billion in the previous one. It is moving into Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois and West Virginia, which almost certainly will require capital. Its net sales rose 37% in the most recent quarter to $840 million.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY)
- [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]
SMMYY is a subsidiary of the Sumitomo Group. SMMYY is a major smelter and refiner of copper, nickel and gold in Japan, and has a 27.5% stake in the Ambatovy Nickel Project in Madagascar, along with Sherritt International and Korea Resources Corp. Feedstock for the refinery is nickel cobalt mixed sulphide from its Taganito and Coral Bay mines in the Philippines (noting the Philippines is a risky supply source at this time). Sumitomo supply Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) who supply Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA); however, this can change. Generally, I like the stock; however, at this time, valuation looks full, trading on a 2017 PE of 32.8, and 2018 PE of 14.8. Good to buy after a pullback if that occurs.

Clean Technica reported on September 1 that “Sony is entering the EV battery manufacturing industry”. And “considering that electric vehicle batteries are going to be the main supply bottleneck for the upcoming auto market’s embrace of EVs, the entry of Sony into the field is very notable. Most of the other manufacturers (Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY), LG Chem (OTC:LGCLF), etc.) already have more or less all of their production capacity locked up for the coming years – meaning there’s not much left for the auto manufacturers that are running behind, thereby limiting potential EV sales for the firms in question. Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) entry into the field should open things up a bit more”. Certainly a good move by Sony and helpful for the EV companies that will find themselves in need of batteries, and limited availability, should EVs reach 10% by 2020.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now: Great Plains Energy Inc(GXP)
- [By Dan Caplinger]
Westar Energy stock declined 8% after regulators at the Kansas Corporation Commissions blocked the sale of Westar to Great Plains Energy (NYSE:GXP). The $12.2 billion merger would have joined utilities in Kansas and Missouri. Great Plains had argued that the combination would produce nearly $2 billion in efficiency gains in the next 10 years, but regulators instead sided with those who had argued that the deal was too rich and would have required rate increases sooner rather than later. Great Plains stock was hardly affected at all by the decision, leading many to conclude that Westar had a lot more to lose from the deal falling through then Great Plains had to gain from a successful merger.
