Top Value Stocks To Own For 2021

Ternium (NYSE:TX) is one of the leading steel manufacturers in South America. Thanks to its broad manufacturing facilities and equipment, the company processes different kinds of steel products, like flat steel, long steel and others, for a wide range of customers from different industries. It also has 16 subsidiaries in countries like Mexico, Columbia, Guatemala and even the US.

Last week, Ternium reported its earnings for Q1, which showed that the company made considerable progress in fulfilling its orders and executing the management plan. However, before deep-diving into the results, I think it would be better if I highlight the results for FY16 that were reported in February first, so that potential investors could understand the full story about Ternium and my bullish thesis behind it.

As we can see from the graphs below, net sales for 2016 were down by 8% at $7.224 million, while steel shipments increased by 2% to $9.764 million. At the same time, the company managed to improve its EBIDTA to $1.5 billion with the margin on it of 21%. But the most important part was the enormous growth of net income from $59.8 million to $706.9 million, thanks to the liquidation of some assets and the improvement of its business processes.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

The initial public offering of the world’s biggest maker of electric-vehicle batteries produced its third billionaire in two days as the stock continued to soar in Shenzhen.

Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. jumped by the maximum 10 percent allowed at 11:25 a.m. local time, following a debut increase of 44 percent Monday. That gave the company a market value of about $13.5 billion, pushing the net worth of shareholder Pei Zhenhua, a clean-technology executive, past the $1 billion mark, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Investors are betting that CATL can fend off rivals Panasonic Corp., which makes power packs with Tesla Inc.; Warren Buffett-backed BYD Co.; and LG Chem Ltd. as the increasing popularity of EVs boosts demand for the batteries that move them.
