Best Value Stocks For 2021

Autodesk: Restructuring, subscriber growth and reasonable expectations

It has been more than a year now since I last used my keyboard to declaim about Autodesk (ADSK). At the time, I basically commented that I thought the shares had gone too far, too fast. Of course, subsequent to that call the shares raced upward and finally peaked at $130, more than 64% above the price they had attained when I decided to be prudent in assessing fair value for this name. The other week, my call got a little bit of redemption when the shares slumped 18% in the wake of a poorly received earnings forecast. At this point, the shares are only 34% above where they were when I advised readers to take profits. Not the best piece of valuation work to paste in my scrap book. About all I can say in self defense is that the IGV index, against which ADSK share price performance would be logically measured, has appreciated 40% over the same 12 months.

But regardless of my blunder back then, the issue to be addressed in this article is what happens next. Is Autodesks transformation on target? What does the so-called net sub adds miss mean to investors? And what interpretation should be placed on the companys announcement of a restructuring. Ultimately, it is these three factors that have been responsible for the shares losing almost 20% of their value in just a few days, with some signs that they (the shares) have entered investor purgatory. From my perspective, investor purgatory is probably a reasonable place to look at ADSK shares – not when they are broadly beloved and making almost daily new highs. As it happens, the shares are still well beloved by analysts who werent too worried about what disturbed investors. For a change, I’m in sync with the preponderance of analysts.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Thursday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, as market participants were uncertain how to respond to conflicting messages on the geopolitical and macroeconomic fronts. By most readings, the U.S. economy continues to do well, but a delay in trade talks between leaders of the U.S. and China spurred more nervousness about whether tariffs could hold back economic growth globally. Some bad earnings results also weighed on investor sentiment. Dollar General (NYSE:DG), Cloudera (NYSE:CLDR), and Smart & Final Stores (NYSE:SFS) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Denison Mines Corp’s Uranium Commentary

Last Thursday, small cap uranium mining stock Denison Mines Corp (NYSEAMERICAN: DNN), which is also focused on the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, reported 2017 earnings and gave its outlook for 2018 with the outlook coming with extensive commentary about the uranium market and Athabasca. David Cates, the President and CEO of Denison Mines Corp, gave the following commentary:

“2017 was a volatile year for the uranium market. While the spot price of uranium benefited from upward momentum on multiple occasions during the year, that momentum was not sustained long enough for a meaningful change to the low price environment that saw the market reach 12 and 13 year lows in late 2016. Despite these disappointing market trends, Denison managed to have another productive year as we continue to focus on our strategy of positioning the Company for the future and a return to a much higher uranium price.”

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

November has been a bad month for Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE). The natural gas refueling company has lost around 10% of its value this month, with most of the decline coming after the company released mixed third-quarter results. I am saying mixed because Clean Energy had missed the top line estimate by around 6.5%, even though it trumped the earnings estimate by $0.02 per share.

What gives?

It looks like investors were disappointed by the fact that Clean Energy reported just 5% increase in revenue from the year-ago period, which was identical to the growth in its volumes. Thus, it is evident that Clean Energy Fuels was unable to take advantage of an improvement in natural gas prices last quarter.

In fact, in the third quarter of 2016, the average Henry Hub Natural Gas spot price was 11% higher as compared to the year-ago period. But, whatever growth that Clean Energy delivered on the top line was volume driven. This can be attributed to the fact that Clean Energy Fuels enters into agreements with its clients to sell gas at fixed price contracts that are subject to a price cap. As such, the company was unable to take advantage of the increase in spot prices.

    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TWTR, CS, GE
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) is under pressure to fire its auditor of 109 years, KPMG (for perspective, GE began its longtime relationship with KPMG a year after the first Model-T was built). Shareholder rights firms Glass-Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services are spearheading the change and will push for adjustments during the firm’s annual shareholder meeting. The move comes after a calamitous year for GE, which saw the company become the worst-performing Dow component of 2017.
    Twitter Inc. (NYSE TWTR) will lead a very busy day of earnings reports. The social media giant is expected to report EPS of $0.12 on top of $609.8 million in revenue.

    Shares of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) continue to slump. The stock was off another 1%, a day after falling another eight percentage points. The downturn came after its CEO announced its industrial division will be cash-flow negative in 2019. Shares of PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP) were off 1% this morning after the stock received a downgrade from Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE: CS). While the Swiss bank called PepsiCo a “high quality” business, it raised concerns about its need to heavily invest over several years into struggling business lines and snack products. It also raised concerns about the ongoing competitive threats in the industry. CS set a price target for Pepsi at $100 per share, which is well below yesterday’s trading price of $116.

    Tariffs
    Governmental action from the White House has added itself to the mix. In January, President Trump announced steep tariffs on imported solar panels. This did two things: It immediately made U.S.-produced solar panels a little more competitive than low-cost alternatives from China or South Korea. And, two, it has led to a solar manufacturing boom. Foreign companies are simply building factories here, changing the ZIP code on their shipping address and dodging Trump’s import duties without changing a single angle on the engineering specs. Since Mr. Trump announced his tariffs, China’s JinkoSolar (NYSE: JKS) has bought a plant in Jacksonville, Fla., First Solar (Nasdaq: FSLR) added to its manufacturing base in Ohio and SunPower (Nasdaq: SPWR) bought struggling SolarWorld Americas, which had petitioned the president for the tariffs, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    The Chinese stock market has entered bear market territory. The Shanghai Composite is off more than 20% since January. Ongoing concerns about the nation’s economic growth and a large-scale trade war with the United States have weighed on investor sentiment. This morning, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin attempted to alleviate concerns about the ongoing selloff by rolling back statements on the nation’s intention to limit domestic Chinese investment. Gold prices took a beating last week, but sentiment may have finally hit an intermediate-term bottom – and it could make this moment one of the best buying opportunities you’ll see. Money Morning Resource Specialist Peter Krauth explains why now is the time to buy gold. Canada is in the process of legalizing weed, and that’s opening the floodgates for billions of dollars to flow into the industry. On June 19, the Canadian Senate voted to legalize recreational marijuana use. By Oct. 17, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants recreational sales to start, according to CBS.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Friday was mixed on Wall Street, with the Nasdaq Composite eking out minor gains even as most other major benchmarks finished down modestly. Market participants seemed largely content to see how things played out on the geopolitical front between the U.S. and North Korea, and key reversals in other financial markets helped send 10-year Treasury rates back below 3% and also resulted in a substantial drop in crude oil prices. Despite generally quiet conditions, bad news sent shares of certain companies lower. Accuray (NASDAQ:ARAY), Cincinnati Bell (NYSE:CBB), and Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Best Stocks To Invest In 2018

Netflix’s recent price hike isn’t denting its subscriber numbers.

Netflix (NFLX) said Monday it added more than 8 million net subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2017, marking the strongest quarterly subscription gains in its history.

The company credited the “stronger than expected” gains in new customers in part to its “original content slate.” That likely includes “Stranger Things,” Netflix’s breakout show, which returned for a second season during the quarter.

The vast majority of new subscribers continue to come from overseas, as Netflix has expanded into new international markets. Netflix added 2 million users in the U.S. and 6.36 million users abroad.

The company’s stock popped over 8% in after hours trading Monday following the earnings report. If those gains hold, Netflix would open Tuesday at a new all-time high and top a $100 billion market cap for the first time.

Shares of Netflix soared more than 50% in 2017, and have continued to rise in the first weeks of 2018 on optimism about its leading position in the streaming market.

Best Stocks To Invest In 2018: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    In this MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova discuss Tesla’s(NASDAQ:TSLA) first quarter — yes, Model 3 production is still lagging — and Elon Musk’s odd behavior on the company’s conference call; Spotify’s(NYSE:SPOT) first post-IPO quarterly report, which was a reminder of how hard it can be in tech to transition into the harsh glare of the public markets; and the future of struggling wearables icon Fitbit(NYSE:FIT).

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    A 20% spike in the fitness wearables niche was particularly good news, considering rival Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) saw its unit volume plunge during the period. Like Fitbit, Garmin has noticed a dramatic shift in consumer demand toward more premium trackers like smartwatches. Yet Garmin’s bigger product line scratched that itch for fitness fans thanks to popular new releases like the Forerunner and Edge franchises. Its lineup allowed fitness sales to rise 20% even as Fitbit’s revenue fell 18%.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In this segment from the Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova weigh in on the latest numbers and guidance from Fitbit(NYSE:FIT): The wearables leader beat expectations — but still lost money — in the first quarter. And with revenue and device sales down by double-digit percentages, there are real questions about how long its fitness bands can hold consumers’ interest.

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has been paying a big price for being late to the smartwatch game. The company missed the shift in consumer preferences and surrendered its lead in the wearables market to a big shark like Apple, which didn’t waste much time in stamping its authority on this still-growing space.

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Own Right Now

Lloyd Blankfein, one of Wall Street’s most powerful players, is reportedly preparing to step down from his perch at Goldman Sachs as soon as the end of the year.

Blankfein has led Goldman Sachs (GS) for the past dozen years, guiding the investment bank back to success after a near-death experience during the financial crisis.

The 63-year-old will be leaving on his own terms, The Wall Street Journal reported. Blankfein will probably retire ahead of the bank’s 150th anniversary in 2019, or early that year, the paper reported.

Goldman Sachs declined to comment. Investors took the report in stride. Shares were mostly unchanged from their prices prior to the news.

The Wall Street firm expects to name one of its co-presidents, Harvey Schwartz and David Solomon, to succeed Blankfein, the Journal reported.

Goldman Sachs has been grooming Schwartz and Solomon for the top job ever since former president Gary Cohn left the bank last year to become President Trump’s top economic adviser. Cohn announced his resignation from the White House this week amid a clash over trade policy.

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Own Right Now: Seaspan Corporation(SSW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Shares of Seaspan Corporation (NYSE:SSW) rallied 15% last month thanks to a bullish analyst note.

    So what

    Seaspan’s stock bobbed around the flatline for most of April until an analyst at Deutsche Bank upgraded the containership leasing company from hold to buy toward the end of the month. What stood out was the $13 price target, which was 85% above the bank’s previous one of $7 a share. Driving that bullish view is the expectation that Seaspan’s ability to deleverage its balance sheet and increase the dividend would fuel substantial share price appreciation in the future.

    Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) leads a busy day of earnings reports. The company reported earnings per share (EPS) of $1.37 on top of $11.08 billion in revenue. Analysts projected EPS of $1.28 on top of $10.45 billion in revenue. Shares of MS stock popped 2.4% thanks to stronger profits (a 26% jump) from the company’s trading division. Recent market volatility has benefited the trading operations of Wall Street investment banks. Here’s how you can tap into volatility for big profits this week. Once again, markets are keeping a close eye on ongoing issues between the United States and its largest trading partners. According to reports, trade problems are expected to offset any gains projected from recent tax reform. The news comes as China is looking to get other U.S. trade partners to stand on their side and oppose American protectionism. Meanwhile, NAFTA officials are set to meet in Washington in order to accelerate the renegotiation of the three-nation trade agreement. This news comes the same morning that U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter to bash the Trans-Pacific Partnership. “While Japan and South Korea would like us to go back into TPP, I don’t like the deal for the United States,” he tweeted. Trump recently raised the possibility that the United States could join the 11-nation deal. Farming groups have been pushing Trump to rejoin the treaty due to the competitive disadvantage they will face against farmers in Canada, Mexico, and Australia, three member states of the deal.

    U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) should be positioned to do well compared with the rest of the major banks in 2018 and beyond. The problem is that you would never know it if you only looked at its stock price. This is the largest regional bank in America, as well as the seventh largest bank in America by assets. Is it possible that all the good things and solid returns are more than fully reflected in the share price?

    U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB) has long been one of the most efficient big banks in the United States. But the Minneapolis-based bank doesn’t approach efficiency in the same way that most of its competitors do.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    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.

    Now, this removes one big uncertainty (actually management was pretty convinced they would settle on favorable terms), but there are a few other headwinds that also led them to lower guidance when presenting Q3 figures:

    In the low end of the mobile market (imaging) they are experiencing increasing competition. They are dealing with this by concentrating on more sophisticated and integrated solutions and narrowing the strategic focus (this is already starting to pay off with design wins like the Huawei Mate 10). For now they expect imaging revenues to be at least $10M lower. The probability of recognizing revenue from Echo, a significant mobile customer for audio technologies, has progressively declined as well. Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) IP licensing is removed from the guidance as they are litigating the company for patent infringement. Management is convinced of a favorable outcome here as well (they embarked on extensive DD prior to filing), but unsure of the timing. Management believes at least $10M in licence revenues has been underreported, but likely resolution will shift this income to 2018. Roughly $5M in expected license revenue from Invensas Licensees will shift to 2018 Guidance excludes roughly $52M in cash receipts which the company can’t recognize as revenue under purchase accounting related to the DTS acquisition (see below for an explanation). This is why cash flow figures are much better than earnings figures.

    Note also how cheap Western Digital’s stock is. Against analysts’ consensus EPS targets of $14.09 this year, according to Yahoo Finance, the company is currently trading at a P/E multiple of below 6x. Of course, this mirrors the valuation of other highly cyclical stocks like Ford (F). However, the strength of recent memory earnings and the commentary from industry players suggest that the cycle still has a long way to go. Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), in particular, noted after posting strong memory results that it’s focused on maximizing profits in its memory division rather than market share. This means that, unlike the last cycle, the major manufacturers could be showing a bit more restraint in production to keep prices and margins elevated. High pricing for memory modules, of course, is one of the major drivers behind Western Digital’s success over the past year.
