Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

The best way to value Ensco (ESV), and the offshore oil drillers more generally, is to value them on the basis of their assets. These companies are obviously not earning any money right now, and when they do earn money, their earnings are very cyclical in nature, thus making earnings based analyses (like DCF’s) that make projections of regular earnings into the future inapplicable. So, in this article, I will look at Ensco’s value on the basis of the hard assets that it owns.

As Warren Buffett admonishes, in investing there should really only be two rules: (1) Don’t lose money; (2) don’t forget rule number one. In this spirit, my main focus will be on what I imagine to be the most plausible worst-case scenario. (Thus, for those of you who wish to comment, the most obvious way to attack my argument is to show how what I imagine to be the worst case is actually not the worst-case, and that, in fact, there is something else which is plausibly worse. I greatly look forward to reading your ideas.) My thesis will be that Ensco’s shares are undervalued even relative to this worst-case scenario. As a result, an investment in Ensco at current levels should cohere to Buffett’s investing rules laid out above, meaning a loss (over a longer-term holding period, of course) should be highly unlikely and the upside should take of itself. What I say here for Ensco should, in large part, be applicable (with the appropriate tweaks) to the others of the big-five offshore oil drillers as well – i.e., Transocean Ltd. (NYSE:RIG), Rowan Companies plc (NYSE:RDC), Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc. (NYSE:DO), and Noble Corporation plc (NYSE:NE). Furthermore, what I say here takes more of the feel of a back-of-the-envelope calculation, as opposed to hyper-precise spreadsheet modeling. Again, following Buffett, the idea is to be approximately right, rather than precisely wrong.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now: Garmin Ltd.(GRMN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    In contrast, Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) sells a wide range of consumer tech devices outside of the wearable-tech segment. This diverse portfolio includes the marine and aviation products that helped sales and profitability both inch higher last year even as Fitbit’s top and bottom lines collapsed. Sure, Garmin’s revenue expansion pace isn’t likely to accelerate much from its current modest rate, while Fitbit could post a dramatic rebound in 2019. But there’s also a much lower chance that the GPS device giant will post an annual loss, as Fitbit has done in each of the last two fiscal years.

    Garmin’s (NASDAQ:GRMN) dividend lacks the steady track record that many investors prefer. The GPS device maker only recently raised its payout after holding it steady for almost three years. However, if you can accept that checkered past you might find plenty to like about this stock.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

I came across NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) in early 2013, when it was starting to become a major player in the Chinese mobile game industry. At first, I was a bit skeptical about their future growth and valuation. Video game companies are sometimes “one-hit wonders”, and decline after their top sellers lose popularity. But NetEase is an exception. After watching it for a few months, I decided then to bite the bullet and buy the stock. And I’m glad I did.

The company has produced leading online games in China since 2001, has a diversified business model over many in-house developed and licensed titles, and currently holds over $4.6 billion in cash, which can be used for buybacks, dividends and acquisitions.

I believe that NTES is still significantly undervalued and there are several upcoming catalysts which will unlock this value. The company is a dominant player in the Chinese gaming market, with significant competitive advantages and high barriers to entry.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Watching the fireworks yesterday, a houseguest commented on why the techno display is bad for the environment (there’s always one in every crowd, isn’t there…!) It’s hard to ignore the majesty of a well produced fireworks display, and I don’t really see too many people hopping on the “let’s clean up the environment by eliminating standard 4th of July fare” bandwagon, but the issue did spark a larger discussion about clean energy, and in particular, LED lighting.

Incandescent bulbs were phased out beginning in 2007, and now, 10 years later, no incandescent light is manufactured in or imported for sale into the United States. These notoriously inefficient sources of light have been replaced globally with LED lights, which are more energy efficient, emit greater light, last multiple times longer than traditional bulbs, and are far cooler from an operational – and now a style quotient – standpoint.

Hot Performing Stocks For 2018

There are no defensive plays left in Indonesian stocks and the only places to hide are in standout companies or firms that are getting a commodity-price tailwind, according to PT Sucorinvest Asset Management.

The Jakarta Composite Index has fallen 6.8 percent over the past month, the most among Asian emerging markets, on concern about the weakening rupiah. All nine of the gauge’s sub-indexes have dropped and only three of the 45 biggest companies — PT Vale Indonesia, PT Bukit Asam and PT Indofood CBP Sukses Makmur — have managed to eke out gains.

“All sectors are being beaten down,” said Jemmy Paul, investment director at Sucorinvest Asset in Jakarta. “We, as fund managers, used to hide in the consumer stocks” but their performance has been very weak, he said.
