Best Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

There are many alternative models for attempting to estimate how undervalued or overvalued the stock market is.  Among them are:

Price/Book P/Retained Earnings Q-ratio (Market Capitalization of the entire market / replacement cost) Market Capitalization of the entire market / GDP Shiller’s CAPE10 (and all modified versions)

Typically these explain 60-70% of the variation in stock returns.  Today I can tell you there is a better model, which is not mine, I found it at the blog Philosophical Economics.  The basic idea of the model is this: look at the proportion of US wealth held by private investors in stocks using the Fed’s Z.1 report. The higher the proportion, the lower future returns will be.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Watch For 2019

It’s only been a little over three months since marijuana became legal in Canada, but the country’s government statistics agency has already added a relevant report to its monthly data set.

Statistics Canada, the national statistical office, now reports revenues generated by cannabis as part of its standard monthly retail sales report. And thanks to that addition, we learned on Jan. 23 that Canadians bought $41 million (U.S. dollars) of marijuana from retail stores in November, the first full month since the legalization became a fact of life.

If anything, this number is an understatement of the true market size for legal pot in Canada. Retail stores are still opening; Ontario, the country’s largest state, still hasn’t opened any retail stores (in this state, sales are still limited to online orders). Further, the demand was so strong that a number of stores ran out of product.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On Energy Transfer Equity’s (NYSE:ETE) first-quarter conference call, the company’s management team provided investors with a unique glimpse of what’s going on behind the scenes. One of the things they’re working on is the acquisition of namesake MLP Energy Transfer Partners. CEO Kelcy Warren said on the call that the companies have “looked at every scenario possible to us” and that the only one that makes mathematical sense is for Energy Transfer Equity to buy its MLP. That transaction would not only simplify the company’s corporate structure but could enable Energy Transfer to resume growing its 7.1% yielding distribution.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: Discovery Communications, Inc.(DISCB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCB) (NASDAQ:DISCK) has traded very cheaply over the past few years. As more and more U.S. consumers “cut the cord” on the traditional cable bundle, Discovery’s channels (which now include all Scripps Networks Interactive channels) have seen their subscriber counts decline. That, combined with the high debt load incurred for the company’s 2017 acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive, sent investors running for the hills last year. In 2017, the company’s three share classes dropped from roughly 10% to roughly 21%.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    You might think Discovery Inc.’s (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCK) (NASDAQ:DISCB) stations primarily feature nature videos and celebrity cooks, but did you know it’s actually becoming a player on the international sports scene? While known for its namesake Discovery Channel and documentary brands such as The Learning Channel, HGTV, and the Food Network, Discovery has actually been in the sports business since 2012, when it first acquired a minority stake in European sports channel Eurosport. Discovery was apparently pleased enough with the channel’s progress to buy 100% of Eurosport in July 2015, and that year, Eurosport won the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in Europe from 2018-2022.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Discovery (NASDAQ:DISCB) announced its quarterly earnings results on Tuesday. The company reported $0.53 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $0.40 by $0.13, Morningstar.com reports. Discovery had a negative net margin of 7.40% and a positive return on equity of 19.34%. The company had revenue of $2.31 billion for the quarter.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Gabelli Funds LLC acquired a new stake in shares of Cheniere Energy Partners LP Holdings LLC (NYSEAMERICAN:CQH) during the second quarter, according to its most recent 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

    Also, after grappling with the issue for several quarters, management was finally able to finalize a deal to acquire the remaining shares outstanding in Cheniere Energy Partners Holdings (NYSEMKT:CQH). Management made an initial offer to acquire the subsidiary holding company back in 2016 as a way to simplify its corporate structure, but it was hung up in a conflicts committee with the board for some time. The new deal is now finalized and set to close this quarter.

    I wouldn’t personally buy Cheniere Energy — it has a complex corporate structure that includes not just Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. but also Cheniere Energy Partners LP Holdings LLC (NYSE: CQH), where the only asset is an ownership stake in Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. Cheniere Energy is attempting to resolve this issue by acquiring Cheniere Energy Partners LP Holdings. Until that process is complete, however, that’s just too much corporate complexity for my taste.

    Liquefied natural gas (LNG) producer Cheniere Energy Inc.

    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share.
