Top Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Life has a way of throwing unpleasant surprises at us when we least expect them, and sometimes, those surprises are medical in nature. That’s why we all need to save money for unplanned healthcare expenses.

Most U.S. adults, however, aren’t saving adequately for emergencies, health-related ones included. In fact, 58% of Americans have less than $1,000 in the bank, according to a 2018 GOBankingRates survey. It’s no wonder, then, that so many people find themselves unable to pay their medical bills, and wind up carrying health-related debt to the point where it damages their finances irreparably. In fact, medical debt is the No. 1 source of personal bankruptcy filings in the country.

Top Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now: MGM Resorts International(MGM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) owns nearly half of the resorts on the Las Vegas Strip and has become synonymous with all things Las Vegas. But from an investment standpoint, the company may not be as Las Vegas-centric as you might think.

    It’s nice to see a stock where the price has gone up 100%, doubling in value. But that’s a backward-looking examination. The real question is: Can a company double in value from the price it’s at today? That’s impossible to answer without a crystal ball. However, Motley Fool contributors have picked three stocks that look like they have the foundations for such an advance soundly in place: Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI), MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), and A.O. Smith Corporation (NYSE:AOS).

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019

There still isn’t a set Snapchat IPO date, but we know one important thing: Snapchat shareholders won’t have voting rights.

This is unprecedented, as Snapchat could be the first company to sell non-voting stock in an IPO on a U.S. stock exchange.

According to Fortune, Snapchat shareholders won’t have the right to:

Nominate, elect, or replace board membersSubmit shareholder proposalsPlace pressure on the board to fire the CEO or anyone in managementApprove or block a merger or takeover offerKnow when a large investor has purchased more than 5% of Snapchat stock

In Snap’s IPO filing, it says this structure is designed to discourage tactics that can be used in proxy fights.

For instance, activist investors will not be able to buy a large position in the company and place pressure on management to increase shareholder value.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc.(GMCR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Sterman]

    But for short sellers in Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (Nasdaq: GMCR), there's another outcome: They've been badly burned as shares have surged, but they insist they've been right all along, and it's only a matter of time before the stock crashes and burns.

  • [By Jonas Elmerraji]

    As badly as short sellers want to hate on Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), betting against the multiyear rally in this $12.7 billion beverage stock has been about as wise as eating from a box with a skull and crossbones on it. And as a bull market continues to lift all ships, Green Mountain’s ship is going to keep floating above the others.

    Green Mountain owns Keurig, the brand of beverage brewers that use self-contained K-Cups to make coffee, teas, and other drinks. While Keurig’s “fad” status has certainly helped tip the deck against GMCR, the fact remains that the firm has done most of the hard work in getting Keurig machines accepted by consumers. With brewers essentially ubiquitous at this point, the firm is able to make money on its cash cow: the K-Cups.

    Keurig’s individual-serving cups have big margins and a big installed base. With huge convenience and the relatively large sunk cost that consumers have put into their Keurig machines, it’s a sticky business with big switching costs. Consumers who buy a Keurig are much less likely to spend the money on a competing brand of proprietary coffee pods.

    I’ve said before that GMCR is far from cheap right now. But its momentum trajectory is showing few signs of fizzling out, especially as direct competitors such as Starbucks (SBUX) continue to sell K-Cups of their own. Don’t bet against GMCR in September – buy this Rocket Stock instead.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019: 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.

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.

  • [By D.R. Barton, Jr.]

    I bring Mr. Houdini up today because when I look at our favorite “Pop & Drop” play – Columbia Sportswear Co. (Nasdaq: COLM) – I find an eerie similarity to this great “escapesman.”

    Looking at recent historical deals, we arrive at a $18-$23 potential deal range. We analyzed transactions that have been announced over the past four years and involved companies catering to a higher income customer. These deals include Southern Tide (acquired by Oxford Industries (OXM)), Joe’s Jeans (acquired by Sequential Brands Group (SQBG)), prAna (acquired by Columbia Sportswear (COLM)), The Jones Group (acquired by Sycamore Partners [private] and Juicy Couture (acquired by Authentic Brands Group [private]). 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.
