Best Diversified Bank Stocks To Watch For 2015


The PEG ratio is calculated by dividing the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio by the sum of the earnings growth rate and dividend yield. A ratio of less than 1.00 indicates that a stock is undervalued.

To find undervalued stocks, I calculated the PEG ratios for the 1,000 companies in my database. Only companies likely to exceed analysts’ sales and earnings estimates are included. I believe these recommendations will produce exceptional returns during the next six to 12 months.

    Let’s take a look at the 5 MFI stocks that have fallen 25% or more this year and quickly review the circumstances surrounding them.

    United Online (UNTD) – down 27.5%

    Much of United Online’s appeal was due to its over 4% dividend yield, but the company announced in late January that it would be discontinuing its dividend to focus on growth initiatives. This follows itsNovember spin-off of FTD, which leaves United with 3 cash producing but declining businesses: Classmates.com, NetZero, and Juno. NetZero Mobile Broadband is an interesting product but one with a lot of competition from the carriers. Frankly, the dividend has been the main attraction for some time, and without it this is a declining company with a fair bit of debt. That does not make for the most attractive option. PASS.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Perhaps bigger players like Occidental were able to hog the limited takeaway capacity, but this won’t be a good reason for slowed production very soon. Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE: MMP  ) and DCP Midstream (NYSE: DCP  ) both have pipelines coming on line within the next couple of months that will have takeaway capacity of 225,000 and 350,000 barrels per day, respectively. Once these pipelines come on line, there should be much more room for LINN’s production. 

  • [By Aimee Duffy]

    Winners
    Given the current state of U.S. energy production, most midstream companies are winners these days. Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE: KMP  ) got things started off on the right foot, reporting in mid-April and beating expectations on revenue and EPS. Here are some highlights from around the industry:


    Buckeye Partners (NYSE: BPL  )  trounced analyst expectations on the top and bottom lines, and recorded a distribution coverage ratio of 1.21 times payouts, allowing the partnership to boost its distribution. DCP Midstream Partners’ (NYSE: DCP  )  distributable cash flow popped 40% year over year, and the partnership completed its Eagle Ford dropdown transaction with parent company DCP Midstream, boosting its stake in the lucrative South Texas shale play. Boardwalk Energy Partners’ (NYSE: BWP  )  operating revenue and net income increased 5% and 10% year over year. More importantly, distributable cash flow popped 24%, though the partnership elected to hold the distribution flat quarter over quarter. Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP  )  had no distribution increase either, but things are looking better than they have in a while. Production in the Eagle Ford Shale is driving growth at ETP, and the partnership is reorganizing into an operation that is stronger and more diverse than ever before.


    Very strong results here, now let’s take a look at some midstream companies that didn’t perform as well.
