On Wednesday, our Elite Opportunity Pro newsletter suggested a speculative entry into small cap Actionable Intelligence solutions stock Verint Systems (NASDAQ: VRNT):
“Today’s new idea is one of those potential takeout candidates considering the need for large and mega-caps to continue growing their top and bottom lines via acquisition, and there’s clearly been plenty of that going on these days. Not only does Verint Systems Inc. (VRNT) offer potential value around current levels, just yesterday the stock moved sharply higher on abnormally high volume. And, the technical event came on no news or looming rumors…”
“….Technically, I’ve included tow charts of the stock below, a weekly and a daily. As you can see on the weekly chart here, although VRNT has definitely seen better days, you can also see the stock has continued to build a base for several months now. Additionally, when you drill down into the daily chart, you can see the stock just recently retraced 5/8th’s of a pretty nice move, and then just yesterday moved sharply higher on what appears to be some pretty large fund buying.”

Unlike the group above, Kimco Realty Corporation (NYSE: KIM) is a shopping mall real estate investment trust (REIT) trading far below its all-time highs. But it still looks expensive. While its open-air shopping malls are located mostly in the top metropolitan markets — and mostly from grocery-anchored centers at that — it’s fighting a long-term e-commerce trend. Kimco may be an income stock, but this does not mean that it won’t decline if its results disappoint or if the market deteriorates. I would be careful with KIM at this time.

Real estate investment trust (REIT) Kimco Realty (NYSE:KIM) owns retail properties. With the retail industry in a state of flux, often referred to with the hyperbolic term “the retail apocalypse,” investors haven’t been too keen on the company’s shares of late. In fact, the shares are 45% off of the highs reached in mid-2016, and the yield is over 6%, higher than it has been since 2011 despite annual dividend hikes since that date. For those who can see past the retail apocalypse hype, though, Kimco is worth a deep dive.
- [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]
But that’s not the full story, either. Kimco Realty (NYSE:KIM), one of the nation’s largest shopping-center owners, lost around 19% in 2018, yet it outdistanced the S&P and the REIT average in January with a 16% gain. That’s roughly 6 percentage points better than Retail Opportunity Investments did. Why?
