Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

It bears repeating, PDL BioPharma (PDLI) is undervalued and a $100 million buyback was just announced on Sept. 24, 2018. This buyback program represents about 25% of cash on the balance sheet. Likewise, the buybacks could retire as much as 20% of shares on the market. This provides a clear near-term catalyst for a stock that trades at half of book value, just north of a net-net, and a market cap that is less than cash on the balance sheet and less than expected cash flows from royalty deals for the next four years:

Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now: Fossil Inc.(FOSL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The latest retail sales report gave market participants bad news on the U.S. economic front, with a 1.2% drop in December marking the worst showing in almost a decade. That came as a shock to investors, and some went so far as to question whether the report was accurate in the aftermath of the long government shutdown. Others fear that a consumer slowdown could foreshadow an economic recession, but at the individual-company level, reports from Tempur Sealy International (NYSE:TPX) and Fossil Group (NASDAQ:FOSL) show how different parts of the retail world are seeing different conditions.

    On its own Alphabet’s (NASDAQ:GOOG)(NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google acquiring the smartwatch intellectual property portfolio from Fossil (NASDAQ:FOSL) (along with a passel of R&D employees) for $40 million wasn’t enough to convince many that a long-rumored Pixel Watch may finally be coming. It was a small transaction, and any number of rationales could be floated to explain the purchase.
