Top Growth Stocks To Buy Right Now

By Gene Munster of Loup Ventures

In case you missed them, here are Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

Optionality around new product and service categories is the 4th and final pillar to our Apple as a Service thesis. We expect a stable iPhone business (part 1), a growing Services segment (part 2), and capital returns (part 3) to move shares higher. In part 4, we outline potential new product and service categories, including AR wearables, personal health, original video content, and autonomous vehicles, which represent additional growth drivers not yet reflected in investor thinking. New hardware products generate new Services opportunities and the company will continue to develop both in tandem as it looks to expand its ecosystem.

AR wearables a great fit for Apple. Futurist Charlie Fink sums up AR best: “The world is going to be painted with data.” Tim Cook agrees, and in 2017 said, “AR is one of those huge things that we’ll look back at and marvel at.” Cook is doing everything in his power to advance the theme, as evidenced by three developments in 2017 including; releasing an AR development platform (ARKit), shipping dedicated AR optics in the iPhone X, and purchasing SensoMotoric (a wearable computer vision technology).

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Uranium has been back in the news lately, not only due to its relationship with geopolitical maneuvering concerning nuclear weapons, but also as a necessary commodity in the global quest for clean, renewable energy.

The United States is the world’s largest producer of nuclear power, accounting for more than 30% of worldwide nuclear generation of electricity. While there has been little growth in new reactors being built in the last quarter century, the increasing demand for clean energy worldwide is sparking a demand for uranium to be enriched as nuclear fuel. Companies that mine and produce uranium, like Azincourt Uranium, Inc. (OTC: AZURF), are seeing the commodity investment market take a renewed interest in them, with uranium spot prices trending upward in the first quarter of 2017.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors. We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.

    Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE: BWP) — While not directly tied to the price of oil due to its focus on the natural gas sector, Boardwalk does fall into the energy column. While the company’s revenue and EPS growth is lackluster and the yield (3.27%) is way below that of a typical energy MLP, the idea behind owning Boardwalk units is the deep discount of the actual assets of the company. The stock trades at just 50 cents on the dollar to the stated book value of the company and, as the company’s wheelhouse is storage and movement of natural gas and natural gas liquids (a now booming U.S. export business), real value will be unlocked. It’s just a matter of time.

Best Value Stocks To Invest In 2018

This is a continuation of my first article on TransDigm (NYSE:TDG). Also, I suggest you read Citron’s article to provide the proper context.

Part 2 focuses on the micro/specific risks that may affect the ability of TDG to generate free cash flow, including:

Financials

Estimation of Market Segment Gross Margins

Market Segment Risks

Channel Stuffing Claims

CEO’s Conflict of Interest

Debt

Next Steps

Also, I suggest readers read the following two articles:

Warren Buffett’s 1994 letter to shareholders, particularly the section about Book Value and Intrinsic Value

My interpretation of Buffett’s valuation techniques based on Buffett interviews and quotes

Let’s get into the details.

Financials

A note on my analysis: I analysed TDG inclusive of 2007, but there was one key data point missing for segment sales. To stay consistent, most of my charts start in 2008. Other than that, there wasn’t anything inconsistent about 2007. I also ignored data before the business went public, focusing on the post IPO period. Also note that TDG’s annual year end is 30 September. Therefore, the year 2008 represents October 2007 – September 2008. So take that into consideration when aligning events such as dividends to annual data.

The average EV/EBITDA multiple of these transactions are 12.9x (in line with KATE’s 5-year historical average of 12.1x) and implies a potential deal range of $22-$23. When taking the average of recent (F13-16) deals implies an ~10.5x EV/EBITDA multiple. When applying the ~10.5x multiples to KATE’s trailing EBITDA, we arrive at an $18- $19 potential share price.

Best Value Stocks To Invest In 2018: Rex Energy Corporation(REXX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

Primecap Management Company is an under-the-radar adviser that doesn’t talk to the media. But it did something no other tracked fund did: it bought Tesla for less than $30 a share in 2011 and hung on to it through the stock’s explosion this year. That’s an estimated gain of 469%.

Primecap advises the Odyssey Funds, which consist of a stock fund, growth fund and aggressive growth fund. Its investment profile reads like that of most typical value advisers, looking to uncover undervalued stocks whose fundamentals will develop beyond Wall Street’s expectations. With a long-term approach, the managers identify changes in a company that could increase value in three-to-five years, such as new products or management, and then wait.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019: Terex Corporation(TEX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Shares of Terex (TEX) had surged 32% as of the close of trading last Thursday–but dropped 14% the next day after China’s Zoomlion announced that it wouldn’t be pursuing a purchase of the U.S. crane maker after all. In the aftermath of the scuttled deal, Morgan Stanley’s Mili Pothiwala and Nigel Coe cut Terex to Equal Weight from Overweight:

    Balint Porneczi/Bloomberg News

    On Friday morning, Zoomlion announced it had terminated its bid for its proposed acquisition of Terex for $31/ share. This was a clear negative for Terex shares, which traded down ~15% on Friday to $20, given the absence of an event-driven catalyst (following the sale of MHPS to Konecranes, which we assume will be completed). However, we think that the stock’s current discount to the Machinery group on a P/E basis (20%+) is justified, given a still challenged underlying operating environment for the RemainCo, as well as historically uneven company execution – both of which return to the forefront of the investment debate following the removal of the M&A bull case.

    To which all we can say is: Oops.

    Shares of Terex have dropped 0.5% to $20.78

    Ever walk past a construction site? It’s hard not to be enthralled by all the heavy construction machinery moving things around. With the world’s developing economies still building at a relatively fast pace and developing economies, like the United States, in desperate need of upgrading their aging infrastructure, the companies behind that construction machinery could be just as exciting as a construction site in the years ahead. Which is why Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), and Terex Corporation (NYSE:TEX) are three of the top construction machinery stocks to look at right now.

    RBC’sSeth Weber and team offer their thoughts on Zoomlion’s revised bid for Terex (TEX):

    Bloomberg News

    After the close today, Terex announced that it is moving forward in its negotiations with Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology Co. following receipt of a non-binding proposal from the Chinese company to acquire all outstanding shares for $31/share in cash.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Yesterday, Terex (TEX) announced that it would sell its ports business to Konecranes for $1.3 billion. Today, Baird’s Mircea Dobre and Joseph Grabowski upgraded Terex to Outperform from Neutral, arguing that the sale makes a takeover by China’s Zoomlion that much easier. They explain:

    Balint Porneczi/Bloomberg News

    The sale of MHPS to Konecranes is a positive catalyst on multiple fronts: shareholders got an attractive multiple for what historically has been a challenged business with further upside possible given 25% equity ownership in Konecranes, execution risk is diminished as new CEO can focus on operational improvement without the effort required to integrate the Terex and Konecranes businesses, and finally, the MHPS sale makes it easier for Zoomlion to acquire remaining Terex.

    While our upgrade is not reliant on Zoomlion acquiring Terex, the MHPS transaction could make a firm Zoomlion offer more likely.

    At the margin, a Zoomlion deal appears easier to get done: 1) the remaining businesses fit better with Zoomlions existing product portfolio of construction equipment, cranes, and various commercial and municipal equipment, 2) given the attractive terms of the MHPS sale, the funding hurdle required to acquire Terex is lowered, 3) many of the CFIUS issues center around national security concerns regarding the nations ports, no longer a concern given MHPS sale.

    Dobre and Grabowski also raised their price target on Terex to $30, up from $24. With Terex off 0.1% at $24.88 today, that leaves 21% upside in the stock to Baird’s target.

    In February, I wrote about Chinese demand for U.S. companies, including Terex.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Third and a trigger for the change: China becomes an active bidder in the space. Chinas Zoomlion bid for Terex (TEX) ($3.3B) along with Haier/General Electric (GE) ($5.4B) and several ChemChina proposed deals in industrials changes the upside/downside skew, particularly on lower quality/more challenged names. The Terex bid does not appear to be one-off. Chinese outbound M&A announcements rose to record highs in 15; to $112B (up 57% from 2014) in total acquisitions. Industrials formed a large and rising portion, at ~12B completed. Thats roughly equal to the 3 prior years industrials deals combined, and is the highest on record. Energy and materials accounted for ~15% of 15 spend vs. ~83% in 2011. Even lower quality or more currently challenged machinery franchises have distribution which could be highly attractive to new entrants…
