    LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (OTCMKTS:LVMUY) was upgraded by ValuEngine from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a research report issued on Saturday.

    LVMH (NASDAQOTH:LVMUY) is the world’s largest luxury company. Its sprawling portfolio of 70 brands includes the fashion houses Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Christian Dior, Loewe, and Marc Jacobs; jewelry and watch brands like Bvlgari and Tag Heuer; retailers like Sephora and Le Bon Marché; and wine and spirit brands like Hennessy, Dom Pérignon, and Moët & Chandon.

    Second, Farfetch faces competition from a wide range of diversified online marketplaces and first-party direct-to-consumer channels. For example, LVMH (NASDAQOTH:LVMUY), the biggest luxury company in the world, recently launched 24 Sèvres, an online version of Paris’ high-end department store Le Bon Marché. 24 Sèvres offers personal shoppers via video chat, two-day free deliveries, and other perks.

    Ferrari may be a carmaker but its valuation is more similar to those of luxury powerhouses like LVMH (OTCPK:LVMUY), Kering (OTCPK:PPRUY) or Richemont (OTCPK:CFRUY) than those of fellow car companies like former parent FCA or Germany’s Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF), BMW (OTCPK:BMWYY) or Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY). No other automotive brand, luxury or volume, can compete with Ferrari’s operative EBIT margin of 22.69 percent and EBITDA margin of 30.3 percent for the full year 2017 (the runner-up being Volkswagen-owned Porsche with a margin of 17.6 percent for 2017). In my eyes, this is further proof of the fact that a Ferrari is not primarily a car but a luxury product. It just happens to be a luxury product that presents itself in the form of a car. The overwhelming majority of cars are purchased out of necessity. Even a premium product like a Mercedes-Benz or a BMW will in most cases remain a tool of transportation above everything else – although I could imagine that some of my fellow countrymen from Germany would fiercely disagree with me on this. No one, however, needs a Ferrari. Please note that I allow myself to exclude needs of the ego from my definition of necessity here. Still, Ferraris are in high demand. That is because customers don’t buy them because they need but because they want them. It is this passion that ensures the company’s success. It is noteworthy that at Ferrari revenue (+10 percent in 2017; +11.2 percent currency-adjusted) increases at a significantly faster pace than shipments (+4.8 percent in 2017) do. This underlines the business’s pricing power.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

Large-cap stocks have found favour this year as investors rushed to park their funds in big names during the consolidation that was seen earlier this year. Their performance in 2018 so far has also been steady as the space, on the whole, has been undervalued. And expectations of better earnings have also kept the sentiment upbeat.

June quarter earnings were relatively better as analysts saw good performance from consumption firms, among others.

“The underlying narrative stays the same — a healthy performance from consumption and commodity-oriented sectors marred by higher provisioning costs at corporate banks. A low base of 1QFY18 indeed provided some succor to several sectors,” Motilal Oswal said in a report.

Based on its analysis, the brokerage house has laid out preferred ideas among largecap names, which have corrected up to 31 percent from their 52-week highs.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.
