What happened

VirnetX Holding (NYSEMKT:VHC) stock gained 19.4% in February, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. The software and intellectual-property company scored a big legal win against Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) in January, as an appeals court shut down the tech giant’s challenge to a previous ruling that found it had infringed on patents held by VirnetX. The decision sent VirnetX shares skyrocketing, and the positive momentum continued last month.

The appellate court judge presiding over the matter reaffirmed the district judge’s initial ruling finding Apple liable for $439.8 million in damages stemming from patent infringement. VirnetX stock gained 112.5% in January, with most of the stock’s movement related to the case, and the gains rolled into February and March.

    The video game industry has relied on more or less the same business model ever since games moved from arcades to homes. Video game enthusiasts buy consoles like Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation 4 or Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox One (or a gaming-ready computer) and then buy individual games. There have been minor changes over time — like the arrival of digital downloads and marketplaces like the PlayStation Store and Steam — but until recently, games were typically purchased individually. It won’t be like that for much longer. In fact, the first subscription streaming services for video games have already arrived.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2021: Just Hold Your Nose and Dive Into Under Armour Inc (UAA)

Down more than 37% since its September-2015 peak (and still within easy reach of new 52-week lows), it would be easy to liken a purchase of Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UAA, NYSE:UA) to catching a falling knife — you generally don’t want to do it. Bolstering the bearish case against Under Armour stock is the fact that even with the steep selloff, UAA shares are still priced at a frothy trailing P/E of 64 [the old ‘UA’ ticker now represents the class C shares; both are still investable].

UAA: Just Hold Your Nose and Dive Into Under Armour StockSource: SandyDover via Flickr (Modified)

There simply aren’t too many stocks the market is willing to value at that level for very long.

And yet, if there was ever an exception to the market’s unspoken limits on price multiples, Under Armour stock is it. As uncomfortable as it may feel to do so, investors may just want to shut their eyes, hold their nose, and dive in.

What Went Wrong fo! r UAA Stock?

For those who’ve kept tabs on Under Armour stock for a while, they’ll know the past year or so has been uncharacteristically disappointing. UAA stock — while it was still UA — advanced 2,500% between March of 2009 and late 2015, entirely in step with revenue growth.

It was a pace that was simply unsustainable though… revenue, as well as the stock’s rally.

In its recently completed third quarter, year-over-year sales growth of 22% was, amazingly enough, relatively disappointing compared to the 28% growth driven in the same quarter a year earlier. Q2’s sales growth pace fell similarly. In fact, that slowing pace has been the norm for roughly a year now.

5 Stocks to Buy for December

It’s not apt to get better anytime soon either. In October, the company warned its sales-growth rate would fall to the lower 20%’s over the course of the next couple of years.

Perhaps worse, margins have begun to dwindle, as the company finds itself spending more and more, but getting less bang for its buck.

This is admittedly a tougher metric to gauge. Per-share profits for Under Armour stock tend to vary widely from one quarter to the next, with the company willing to spend big on team-based sponsorships and celebrity-based endorsements at the drop of a hat, usually in step with a rise to fame rather than on a cyclical basis.

When one takes a step back and looks at the long-term numbers though, it becomes clear that Under Armour has prioritized growth over profits, paying small fortunes (and sometimes large fortunes) to affiliate with high-profile names like Steph Curry and Jordan Spieth.

CEO Kevin Plank says it’s worth the all cost. The persistent weakness from UA and UAA stock, though, says the market isn’t so sure.

The Future Looks Brighter for Under Armour

There was a method to the madness this whole time. It just took Under Armour far longer to reap what it had been sowing for the pas! t several! years … momentum, and a solid foundation. They’re certainly relic ideas in the modern market, where most investors are looking for results in a matter of weeks rather than a matter of years. It has been worth the wait — and expense — for Under Armour though.

Case in point: Under Armour was recently awarded a 10-year contract by Major League Baseball to provide uniforms for its teams, beginning in 2020.

At 40 players on the expanded roster for 30 MLB teams, with different home and away-game jerseys, there’s a little money to be made with the deal. The real value of the contract, however, is the power of putting the Under Armour logo on the front of those jerseys, providing a constant stream of subtle but powerful advertising. Apparel licensing rights will provide the bulk of subsequent payoff. It’s unlikely Under Armour would have been able to sway Major League Baseball, however, if it hadn’t become the behemoth it has become over the course of the past few years.

As Fortune‘s John Kell explained it:

“As Under Armour gets bigger, it makes it tougher for the company to boost sales at a pace that investors were used to. But there’s one advantage that investors seem to be ignoring. The bigger business means Under Armour can compete for key contracts with sports leagues, individual athletes, and universities. Those deals are important for a brand to become more top of mind with shoppers.”

From here, life actually gets a little easier and relatively less expensive for Under Armour.

Bottom Line for Under Armour Stock

The next new frontier for Under Armour is its direct-to-consumer business, or as it’s more commonly called, e-commerce. The company drove $408 million worth of internet-based sales during the third quarter, or roughly 28% of Under Armour’s total revenue for Q3. That’s actually relatively more e-commerce than most brands are able to drive for themselves, b! ut Under ! Armour wants more.

It’s also getting more. Direct-to-consumer sales were up 29% last quarter, marking another improvement in its e-commerce growth pace even as the pace of sales through brick-and-mortar locales continues to slow.

It’s a key solution to the apparel maker’s problem of thinning margins. Online, Under Armour sells at retail prices rather than wholesale prices.

Whatever the case, e-commerce is another facet that simply wouldn’t have worked quite as well were Under Armour not the readily recognizable name it is now.

Why Micron Technology, Inc. (MU) Stock Is Headed for Blue Skies

To be fair, UAA/UA still aren’t even close to being contenders for any value awards. This is a growth story, and Under Armour stock is priced as a growth stock. There is growth ahead though, and perhaps of more interest to shareholders, there’s now enough scale that margins could take a turn towards respectability again without crimping the company’s capacity to pay for those much-needed endorsements and sponsorships.

Think of it as a coming-of-age story, if you’re truly in for the long run. Just know it’s an idea that isn’t reflected in most analysts’ opinion.

As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Yesterday, the European Union granted an extension for England to leave the world’s largest trade bloc. The new deadline for the Brexit is Oct. 31. With MPs in London deadlocked over a deal, the country is still no closer to a resolution than it was the day after the Brexit referendum more than 1,000 days ago. Prime Minister Theresa May said the government would continue to work toward a resolution and aim to depart from the EU as soon as possible. The price of Bitcoin fell 4% to nearly $5,000 after a failed breakout from its 2019 high. The world’s largest cryptocurrency took on an impressive rally over the last few weeks. However, several positive factors are set to break Bitcoin out of its doldrums. CME Group reported a doubling of Bitcoin futures volume in March. Coinbase has released a new card that allows UK and EU citizens to spend Bitcoin like any other currency. And Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon suggests there’s even more upside.

    Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) burst on the scene in 2017, delivering stellar outperformance in its rookie year as a public company. Driving that surge was the company’s ability to capture several needle-moving opportunities, which positioned it for fast-paced growth for years to come. The master limited partnership (MLP) has continued enhancing its growth prospects this year, which puts it in a position to grow cash flow at an even faster pace.

    Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) currently yields an eye-catching 9%. However, as alluring as that payout might seem, it’s not worth considering right now because of the company’s weaker financial profile. That’s why investors should forget about Buckeye Partners’ high-yielding dividend and instead examine the offerings of fellow energy infrastructure companies EnLink Midstream (NYSE:ENLC), Noble Midstream (NYSE:NBLX), and Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE). Each pays a similarly high-yielding dividend that they back with stronger financials metrics and expect to increase at a healthy rate in 2019 and beyond.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The U.S. markets are preparing for the eighth interest rate hike since 2015, and the Federal Reserve may not be done yet. Markets are weighing the possibility that the Fed may raise rates one more time this year (in December). The hikes come as the Fed is attempting to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. When Powell speaks this afternoon, expect a few questions about the impact of the trade war between the United States and China. Reporters will also likely want to know about geopolitical risks to the U.S. economy and how they might affect growth in a higher-interest-rate environment. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump gave a speech before the United Nations General Assembly. During his talk, Trump praised the U.S. economy and defended his administration’s actions this year on trade. Trump said that the United States will no longer endure “abuse” from other trade partners. The U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also said Tuesday that the U.S. is prepared to proceed on a new trade deal with Mexico without the participation of Canada. Oil prices are in focus after President Trump called out OPEC members before the U.N. on Tuesday. During his talk, Trump accused OPEC and non-OPEC participants in collusion efforts on production and prices of ripping off the rest of the world.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2018

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

For example, consider these forecasts that Forbes detailed in its “2017 Roundup Of Internet Of Things Forecast” report:

    According to Bain, “B2B IoT segments will generate more than $300B annually by 2020, including about $85B in the industrial sector”. According to PwC, “$6T will be spent on IoT solutions between 2015 and 2020”. According to Accenture, “Industrial Internet Of Things could add $14.2T to the economy by 2020”. According to Statista, “The global Internet of Things (IoT) market is projected to grow from $2.99T in 2014 to $8.9T in 2020, attaining a 19.92% Compound Annual Growth Rate (OTCPK:CAGR). Industrial manufacturing is predicted to increase from $472B in 2014 to $890B in global IoT spending. Healthcare and life sciences are projected to increase from $520B in 2014 to $1.335T in 2020, attaining a 17% CAGR”.

    The forecasts compiled by Forbes are all over the place but one thing is consistent, that is, the growth potential for IoT (and the sub-industries) is real. Connected things are expected to experience significant growth and I believe that it is hard to deny that digital will play a key role in the future growth of the global economy.

    The price of Bitcoin surged more than 17% to top $8,000 in a rapid move that surprised many investors this morning.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE:KGC) fell 14.3% today after the company announced first-quarter 2018 results. While the company delivered top-line growth compared to the year-ago period thanks to higher sales volumes and selling prices, it didn’t trickle down to the bottom line. Instead, net income actually decreased 21% compared to the performance in the first quarter of 2017. It’s the same sticking point Wall Street had with full-year 2017 results.

Top 10 Bank Stocks For 2018

Shares sold short in Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) rose 15 million to 112 million for the period that ended on January 12. Sprint was the 10th most shorted stock among those traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

The increase in Sprint short interest is likely based on its poor performance and its struggle to gain sales from AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile in a stagnant U.S. market.Sprint’s share price has fallen 44% in the past year to $5.26. The S&P 500 is up 22% over the same period.

Sprint is controlled by Japanese company Softbank, which has tried several times to set a merger, most likely with T-Mobile. The combination would allow the two companies to more readily compete with the much larger AT&T and Verizon. Softbank owns nearly 85% of Sprint’s shares.

Among Sprint’s moves to become more competitive, it has set a partnership with cable company Cox Communications. The arrangement is meant to help Sprint improve the performance of its network.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

The most popular online exchange for trading digital currencies is generating a surge in customer complaints this year even as investors are lured by a dramatic rise in prices.

The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has received at least 293 complaints about Coinbase Inc., according to data reviewed by Bloomberg. That compares with about six complaints for all of 2016, and makes Coinbase the biggest recipient of CFPB virtual currency complaints this year. The website has struggled to keep up with spiking volume and longer transaction processing times as the value of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies soared to record highs.

Top 10 Performing Stocks For 2018

For many women, the wage gap needs no explaining: Female workers, on average, earn around 80 cents for every dollar a man makes. The gap is even wider for women of color.

And yet a significant number of men still don’t believe it exists.

Sallie Krawcheck, the former Citi CFO who became one of the highest-ranking women on Wall Street, thinks more men in power need to wake up to the realities of the wage gap.

According to the 2018 Money Census report from Ellevest, a women’s investing firm Krawcheck founded, 83% of women said they believe in the gender wage gap, “in which men make more than women for performing the same job.” Only 61% of men agreed.

.

Ariane Hegewisch, study director at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, believes there’s another element to men’s disbelief: They don’t want to believe they are benefiting from an unequal system which would imply that they’ve been rewarded for more than just their own merits.

    The price of Bitcoin surged more than 17% to top $8,000 in a rapid move that surprised many investors this morning. The sudden rally appears to be the result of a short squeeze, according to CNBC contributor Brian Kelly. This means that investors who had been betting on a decline in the price of the world’s largest cryptocurrency had been forced to jump back and buy the currency again. A lot of people have been betting on a decline in the price of Bitcoin heading toward the April 17 tax deadline. The expectation is that many people will need to sell their Bitcoin in order to raise cash to meet tax obligations. Here’s our latest daily insight on why the Bitcoin bear market may end very soon.

That change could have a major impact on the cash flows of TransCanada’s MLP TC Pipelines, LP (NYSE:TCP). While TC Pipelines isn’t sure how much this change will impact its cash flow, it took precautionary actions by slashing its distribution to investors. That payout reduction and the related uncertainty has weighed significantly on TC Pipelines’ valuation. Because of that, Girling said that “further dropdowns of assets by TransCanada into TC Pipelines is not considered a viable funding option at this time,” and he isn’t sure if it will be one in the future. However, he did clarify that even without future dropdowns to TC Pipelines, TransCanada believes it has the “financial capacity to fund our existing capital program through our predictable and growing cash flow from operations as well as several other funding alternatives.”

    Most investors have probably heard of energy giants Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Fewer, however, are likely familiar with their publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs): Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM), and TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP). That might be a good thing, as the market has beaten up the latter trio this year, sending their valuations south.
