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.

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 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

At first, the gifts seemed innocent enough: a free dinner and a private helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon. By the end of it, though, the Polish official was standing in a Warsaw parking lot, accepting $100,000 in bags of cash, given to him in exchange for multi-million-dollar government contracts.

You might be thinking that this government employee was being paid off by the mafia or some shadowy military contractor, but think again: According to the SEC and Polish prosecutors, the official was allegedly bribed by white-collar executives within Hewlett Packard (NYSE:HPQ) and IBM (NYSE:IBM), the American blue chip technology firms.

In 2014, the SEC charged HP with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in Poland. At the time, the agency explained HP executives “provided gifts and cash bribes worth more than $600,000 to a Polish government official to obtain contracts with the national police agency.”

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Growth versus value investing is one of the major debates in the investment world.  Growth stocks seem to have outperformed their value counterparts over the past few years. But the winning streak of growth investing took a hit this year with value stocks regaining lost glory.

It is currently speculated that value investing will likely continue its winning run in the upcoming years. Hence, adding potential stocks to one’s portfolio might prove to be an ideal option in the current scenario.

Value vs. Growth Investing: Long-Drawn Debate

Value investors seek to invest in stocks that are believed to be trading at a discounted value. Investors look for favorable value ratios including low price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-book value (P/B) ratios to identify potential value stocks. While a significant number of these stocks are also expected to come with solid dividend payments, these stocks are also expected to moderate growth prospects.

    About Venmo. I don’t think it’s the game changer that many in the PayPal investment community think it is. It’s growing for sure but for me it is yet unproven and is the one point where Apple Pay (NASDAQ:AAPL), Samsung Pay (OTC:SSNLF) and potentially Square (NYSE: SQ) can actually land a punch. $9.4 billion in transaction volume last quarter and making it available in around two million U.S. retailers are signs of a growing business, but whether it will be used for retail purchases by its user base remains to be seen. I could be surprised on the upside in the coming 3-6 quarters. But as long as the company isn’t revealing the number of its users I won’t be holding my breath and including this in the factors that can contribute to sustained growth.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018: Royal Gold Inc.(RGLD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That’s not exactly great historical company. That also explains why gold fever is spreading among investors again, as it inevitably does when economic conversations turn gloomy. I think it’s better to buy and hold stocks for the long haul, but for those considering buying gold directly, I’d encourage a different strategy. That is, buying the best gold stock instead: streaming company Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD).

    Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD) (TSE:RGL) – Equities research analysts at B. Riley increased their Q2 2019 earnings per share (EPS) estimates for Royal Gold in a research note issued on Tuesday, April 17th. B. Riley analyst L. Pipes now forecasts that the basic materials company will post earnings of $0.46 per share for the quarter, up from their previous estimate of $0.45. B.

    Gold streaming company Franco-Nevada Corporation (NYSE:FNV) offers investors a unique way to gain exposure to precious metals, but when you compare it to peers Royal Gold, Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD) and Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. (NYSE:WPM)it looks relatively expensive. That said, if you are looking to gold for diversification you might still find that Franco-Nevada Corporation stock is a buy.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Although gold streaming is something of a niche in the precious metals market, the largest competitors have been in the business since the 1980s,while new entrants are showing up as well (including hedge funds, private equity, and pension funds). Most investors, however, should probably stick with the largest, easiest to trade, and longest-tenured companies for now. Here are the top five.

    Company Market Cap Dividend Yield

    Franco-Nevada (NYSE:FNV) $13 billion 1.3%
    Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM) $9 billion 1.7%
    Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD) $6 billion 1.2%
    Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. $1.6 billion 1.6%
    Sandstorm Gold Ltd. $800 million N/A

    Franco-Nevada

    The largest streaming company by market cap is Franco-Nevada. As noted above, it has investments in nearly 300 mines, 50 of which are producing. However, it has taken diversification further than its peers by investing in around 80 oil and natural gas assets (57 producing), following the same basic business model. It’s not as pure a play on metals, but if you are looking for diversification, that non-precious-metals exposure is an interesting addition to the mix. That said, gold provides roughly 70% of its revenue, with silver at 15%, and oil and gas at just 7% (the rest is, effectively, “other”), meaning that gold is still the big driver of performance here. The company has increased its dividend annually for 10 consecutive years.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Buy Right Now

While there are times the so-called January Effect can account for why certain stocks will run higher during the first month of the year — big investment firms are buying up stock after having sold them off in December for tax-loss harvesting purposes — some stocks jump in January because the outlook for the business looks suddenly brighter.

Image source: Getty Images.

I ran a screen to identify the best-performing stocks from the S&P 500 in January. The top three performers during the month were Alcoa (NYSE:AA), CSX (NASDAQ:CSX), and NRG Energy (NYSE:NRG). Let’s see why they were the big standouts and whether they can keep it going.

Alcoa: Up 30.2%

Shares of Alcoa have been rising ever since it spun off its value-added manufacturing business Arconic last October, not least because its legacy aluminum business was given a boost with a cleaner balance sheet. As the world’s largest bauxite miner and refiner of alumina, Alcoa is still going to be subject to the whims of a cyclical industry, but now has the financial fortitude to better weather those storms.

    The San-Francisco bank has paid about $2 billion in fines and extra legal costs to resolve allegations that it used overly aggressive sales practices over the past decade, including opening millions of accounts without customers’ knowledge and charging auto borrowers for insurance they didn’t need.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Throughout its history, Starbucks has mostly had a company-owned model for its retail locations, a strategy that is at odds with a trend of activist investors pushing fast food, restaurant and coffee companies to franchise locations out to raise cash for stock buybacks and debt reduction. In recent years, activists have targeted Jamba Juice (JMBA) , Potbelly (PBPB) , Jack in the Box (JACK) , Wendys Co. (WEN) , McDonald’s (MCD) and elsewhere. In addition, Starbucks has a one-share, one-vote structure, which can make it vulnerable to an activist investor seeking to elect dissident director candidates as it pursued the strategy.

Top Small Cap Stocks To Watch For 2019

On Thursday, our Elite Opportunity Pronewsletter suggestedsmall cap embedded antenna technologies stock Airgain Inc (NASDAQ: AIRG) as a buy:

Fundamentally, AIRG is a classic growth play Basically, what’s not to like about AIRG from a fundamental perspective? Well, nothing really, but from a purely technical perspective, AIRG has not been for the faint of heart. Following its initial IPO back in September of last year, the stock went on a tear before inevitably falling apart later in the year.

This is not a short-term play, but rather an idea you may want to allocate what you’re willing to risk, and simply sit on it. Small caps clearly can be tremendously rewarding or extremely frustrating, however, we do believe when it’s all said and done, AIRG has all of the makings of a nice little home-run someday.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    As an investor, it’s always hard when a company you love doesn’t see things go its way. I ate at Tex-Mex chain Chuy’s Holdings (NASDAQ:CHUY) original Austin locations hundreds of times during my time in Texas’ capital city, and eating at not one but two of its Houston-area restaurants on a recent trip to my hometown was a highlight of my time there. Yet despite my own contributions toward boosting Chuy’s sales performance, the company’s broader fortunes have remained mixed, and a brutally competitive restaurant industry has made it hard for Chuy’s to keep itself moving forward despite its ambitious expansion efforts.

Top Small Cap Stocks To Watch For 2019: Hertz Global Holdings Inc(HTZ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    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.

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.

(Nasdaq: GOOGL). “I made the wrong decisions on Google and Amazon,” Buffett said on Saturday. “We’ve looked at it. I made the mistake in not being able to come to a conclusion where I really felt that at the present prices that the prospects were far better than the prices indicated.” Buffett says he now has a “very, very, very high opinion” of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. The Oracle believes that Bezos has created something that is “close to a miracle.” Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) added another 0.6% Monday, to reach $185.00 per share – a new 52-week high.

    Shares of Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) were down 17 percent to $18.505 after the company reported a wider-than-expected loss for its first quarter.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
