Top Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Apogee Enterprises, Inc.(APOG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market performed well on Tuesday, including gains of nearly 200 points for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and similarly positive moves for other major benchmarks. At first glance, decisions from the U.S. and China to impose new tariffs on each other might have seemed like bad news, but investors were pleased that the actual tariff rates on the goods covered by the measures were less severe than initially feared. Even with that as a positive backdrop, some companies weren’t able to avoid bad news that sent their shares lower. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Apogee Enterprises (NASDAQ:APOG), and General Mills (NYSE:GIS) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Apogee Enterprises (NASDAQ:APOG) has benefited greatly from the rebound in construction activity recently, which has helped the architectural glass and framing specialist bounce back from difficult conditions in past years. Yet despite solid business conditions throughout 2017, Apogee stock has struggled as investors seemed to question whether its growth path was sustainable.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018

Activision-Blizzard is Far From Overvalued

Activision-Blizzard (ATVI) is up 54% since we initiated our bullish coverage on the video game giant back in March 17th 2017. ATVI is currently trading at a P/E of 42 by GAAP standards while the S&P 500 index is trading at an P/E of 26. This leads many investors to believe that ATVI is overvalued. However, GAAP P/E is a deceitful measurement of ATVI’s profitability due to the company’s heavy non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses.

In this article, we’ll look at more valuable metrics of profitability such as operating cash flow and free cash flow to show that ATVI is actually undervalued relative to its peers and the market as a whole. Furthermore, we will update our free cash flow-based DCF model to show that ATVI has a 33% upside from its current price.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018: Wynn Resorts, Limited(WYNN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts’ (NASDAQ:WYNN) first quarterly report without founder Steve Wynn as CEO — or even owning any shares of the casino resort operator — went about as well as it could have. The sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn don’t seem to have caused any disruption to the business in the U.S., and Wynn Resorts continued to take market share from competitors in Macau.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Yet not all casinos will benefit equally. Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), for example, derive most of their revenues from operations in Macau. Sands earns 60% there; Wynn, 73%. They could certainly expand their sports books beyond their Vegas operations, but they have so few casinos elsewhere (and Wynn’s Boston Harbor isn’t even completed), it’s only going to be a tiny portion of their overall revenues.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Just in case you thought Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) CEO Matthew Maddox was suggesting he would sell the pending Boston Harbor resort to prevent any “contagion”of misconduct allegations from spreading to the rest of the company, he wants you to know that, no, the project is not up for sale.
