Sheela Foam reported very good set of nos. Overall revenue increased 15% YoY on the back of increase in selling price. India revenue was up 15% YoY. Australia Revenue was up 12% YoY. Volume growth stood in the range of 2-3%. We are expecting strong profit growth in the future led by better volumes and margins which will be backed by strong sales volume recovery.

The TDI prices are also expected to cool-off after the new plant in Saudi Arabia is operational. The earnings will get boost from pan India launch of mass market brand ‘Starlite’ and mid-market brand ‘Feather Foam’ and

EBITDA margin recovery led by softening raw material prices.

Key demand drivers for Sheela Foam’s products are rising population, urbanization, rising number of nuclear families, changing lifestyles and rising income levels. Looking at the revenue drivers and company’s ability to generate FCF we are recommending a buy.

    Investors still remain cautious about ongoing trade tensions between the United States and China. This morning, Chinese media outlets said that the Trump administration had “a symptom of paranoid delusions” when it came to its protectionism. Trump is currently threatening another round of tariffs on up to $200 billion in Chinese goods. With yet another round of tariffs on the way, the United States is close to implementing the most significant trade protectionist policies since the 1930s. Shares of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) are generating a lot of buzz after the Supreme Court said it will allow states to collect more sales tax from online retailers. Shares of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT) and Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) both ticked higher. Despite the small downturn in AMZN stock, Boris Schlossberg, of BK Asset Management, said Wednesday afternoon that the e-commerce giant could soon been worth more than $2,000 per share before we see another pullback from the Nasdaq. AMZN is up 50% in 2018 and has hit 34 new records so far this year. The U.S. Federal Reserve announced that 35 U.S. banks passed their latest round of stress tests, which are designed to determine if a financial institution has enough money in the event of a serious economic downturn or other event. Expect a lot of chatter today about what this means for firms like Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC), Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS).

    Carvana’s operations are innovative, but investors need more than that to buy in. And that’s where Carvana must consistently show progress on gross profit per unit (GPU). We know Carvana is going to grow its top line as it enters into a slew of new U.S. markets; in fact, Carvana’s 44 markets at the end of the fourth quarter of 2017 are expected to explode to as many as 84 by the end of 2018. But it also needs to narrow the gap with its competitors on GPU. Let’s use CarMax (NYSE:KMX), a competitor that logged an excellent 2018 first quarter, as an example.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now: United Natural Foods, Inc.(UNFI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Investors seemed to be in a sector-shifting mood on Friday, because various measures of stock market performance went in different directions. Some areas of the market, including small-cap stocks and big technology names, were largely lower for the day. Yet the Dow Jones Industrial Average set another all-time high, and the broadest benchmarks stayed close to unchanged. Even so, amid the cross-currents of the market, some stocks suffered substantial losses, with a particular emphasis on those that had seen impressive gains recently. GTx (NASDAQ:GTXI), Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY), and United Natural Foods (NASDAQ:UNFI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

That assistance aside, there was another driver of the deal, which is that Brookfield firmly believes the market had undervalued TerraForm and was happy to pick up more shares at a discount.

Top Value Stocks To Watch For 2019

Noble Group Ltd. dissident shareholder Goldilocks Investment Co. says the Singapore regulator’s handling of the trader’s drawn-out battle for survival is being closely followed by overseas investors, highlighting the importance of the case for the city-state’s reputation as a financial hub.

“This was our first investment into Asia: we were looking at this as making an investment into Asia, especially in Singapore,” Ajit Vijay Joshi, a fund manager at Abu Dhabi-based Goldilocks, said in a phone interview. He added: “I’m sure a lot of other people are watching what they will do.”

#lazy-img-326922488:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

Once Asia’s largest commodity trader, Noble Group has imploded over the past three years, losing billions, defaulting on $3.4 billion of debt, and shredding its market value. That decline has been marked from the outset by allegations of improper accounting by long-time foe Iceberg Research, which the company has denied. While Noble Group Chairman Paul Brough is now pushing a debt-for-equity rescue, Goldilocks is resisting, saying it’s unfair in its current form, and appealing to Singapore Exchange Ltd. to address its concerns.
