Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019

Buying stocks that are cheap and out of favor to capture extra return when they eventually recover—a cornerstone of value investing—has worked for decades, but may no longer be a sound strategy due to shifts in how markets operate, according to Jeremy Grantham, founder of asset manager GMO.

Students of Benjamin Graham, author of The Intelligent Investor, widely considered the bible of value investing, rely on a phenomenon called mean reversion. Simply put, many stocks that become undervalued should eventually recover, while stocks that become overpriced should eventually return to earth.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019: Orocobre Limited (OROCF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Early-stage lithium producer Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF) has been busy developing its Argentine flag-ship asset at Olaroz. The company has managed to scale up the asset to around 12,000 T / year LCE with a nameplate production capacity of 17,500 T / year. Although the company has not achieved full production capacity at its asset, it has moved ahead with joint venture partner Toyota Tsusho (OTCPK:TYHOF) to develop plans for Phase 2. In January 2018, Orocobre announced that Toyota Tsusho would invest nearly $300 million for a 15% stake in the company, along with plans to double production capacity at Olaroz to 42,000 T LCE / year. The joint venture is also building a lithium hydroxide facility in Japan which will supply the local battery supply chain.

    In April 2018, Nemaska (OTCQX:NMKEF) drew nearly $100 million in investment from Japan’s SoftBank (OTCPK:SFTBY) group in exchange for a 9.9% interest in the company and access to lithium hydroxide produced by the company. In March 2018, CATL the world’s soon-to-be largest lithium battery manufacturer purchased a controlling stake in the Quebec Lithium project in consideration for $66 million. In February 2018, Korean steel giant, POSCO (PKX) announced a supply agreement and investment into Australian lithium miner Pilbara Minerals (OTCPK:PILBF). In January 2018, Toyota Tsusho (OTCPK:TYHOF), the strategic trading arm of Toyota Motors, invested approximately A$300 million in Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF) in consideration for 15% of the company. Now, in April 2018, Swedish battery start-up NorthVolt has announced that it has signed an agreement for the supply of up to 5,000 metric tons per year of lithium hydroxide produced at Nemaska Lithium’s commercial plant in Shawinigan, Quebec. In connection with the supply of lithium chemicals, NorthVolt has agreed to deliver to Nemaska a 10 million euro promissory note that can be converted into voting shares of NorthVolt.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019: Insys Therapeutics, Inc.(INSY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market has been moving sharply higher lately, and Wednesday was no exception. A 0.6% gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average matched well with similar-sized jumps in other major indexes, with investors taking comfort from encouraging readings on the macroeconomic front. Yet even though much of the market continued to build on gains from earlier in the week, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the rally. Express (NYSE:EXPR), Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU), and Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    Insys Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INSY) and Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CARA) fall into the third category. However, the designations of both Insys and Cara as marijuana stocks warrant an asterisk. Insys’ cannabinoid drug Syndros is based on a synthetic form of THC, the primary psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Cara has a cannabinoid receptor agonist, CR701, in preclinical development.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    There’s no amount of caution tape that would be sufficient to wall off Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ:INSY) from unsuspecting investors. This drugmaker, which focuses part of its research and product line on cannabinoids or synthetic cannabis compounds, wound up losing 1.1% in January and has shed well over 90% of its value in the past 3.5 years.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019: U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc.(SLCA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    B. Riley set a $19.00 price objective on U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) in a research note published on Friday. The brokerage currently has a buy rating on the mining company’s stock. B. Riley also issued estimates for U.S. Silica’s FY2021 earnings at $0.81 EPS.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Despite posting a sharp recovery in operations in 2017 compared to 2016, frack sand supplier U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) just can’t seem to earn the respect of Wall Street analysts. Shares have fallen 22% in the last year. Some of that is easy to understand considering how badly the company (and the industry as a whole) overshot market demand in the past, which crashed sand prices and wiped out profitability. But I think there’s enough evidence that management has learned valuable lessons and put them into practice this time around.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    That isn’t the case in many parts of the country anymore as capacity constraints and labor shortages are making everything more expensive. That’s bad news for producers because it likely means that break-even costs will increase. However, those that can introduce ways to improve efficiency will likely do quite well. One example Miller mentioned was containerized sand, a concept spearheaded by two frack sand producers: U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) and Hi-Crush Partners (NYSE:HCLP). These companies have developed sand hoppers that reduce last-mile shipping and loading times by more than 75%. This translates to significantly fewer trucks needed to move the same amount of sand and less downtime for producers. Both companies are seeing strong demand for the service, and it translates to much higher margins per ton of sand sold compared to their peers.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Investing in frack sand supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) has been a roller-coaster ride to say the least over the past few years. First, everyone on Wall Street was clamoring to get into frack sand when shale oil and gas were getting their start in the first half of this decade. Then, oil prices started to crash, and demand for frack sand dried up fast. Now that oil and gas producers have significantly lowered costs and are using more sand than ever, demand is red-hot again, but investors don’t seem to be interested.

    NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP) announced this week that it would acquire a portfolio of wind and solar assets from its parent NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) for $1.275 billion. The transaction, which the company will finance through a unique arrangement with leading asset manager BlackRock (NYSE:BLK), keeps it on track to grow its 3.6%-yielding dividend at a 12% to 15% annual pace all the way through 2023. That forecast could energize the company to produce market-smashing returns in the coming years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    NextEra Energy Partners unveiled this week that it has agreed to buy a portfolio of six wind and solar projects from its parent NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) for $1.02 billion. NextEra secured long-term contracts to sell the power generated by those facilities to several creditworthy customers, which means they’ll provide NextEra Energy Partners with steady cash flow to support its dividend. In the company’s estimation, the assets should generate between $97 million and $107 million of annual cash flow over the next five years.

It is also a major player in e-buses, e-trucks, solar panels, energy storage and batteries. In addition, last year it launched its “Skyrail” transit system.

    The pace of consolidations of Chinese rechargeable battery cell companies is accelerating. We made an assertion in our previous report that, with a few exceptions (CATL, BYD), most Chinese names would be consolidated due to the change of subsidy policy by Beijing, and that the industry is likely to become more oligopolistic. It appears that this trend is becoming more pronounced. According to SNE Research, the combined market share of CATL and BYD in the Chinese EV battery market has grown from 43.9% in 2017 to 63.6% in 1H18. China’s subsidies are mostly for high- performance rechargeable batteries, and the NEV credit system, which was implemented this year, is designed to give more credits to companies that use high-performance rechargeable batteries. As such, high-end rechargeable batteries are likely to drive demand, but realistically only CATL and BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) have the capacity to make these batteries in China.

    Current subsidies in China were reduced by 20% in 2017 and will be reduced by 40% in 2019 and 100% by 2021. China’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) credit system was announced on September 28, 2017, and will begin in 2019 with 10% of credits (12% in 2020) required from new energy vehicles (NEVs). That translates to ~4-5% of EV sales as market share for 2019. We also are expecting an announcement at some stage as to when China will ban ICE vehicles, noting BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) Chairman Wang thinks by 2030. Others think it will be 2035.
