Cramer: Why you should use your ‘mad money’ to buy some individual stocks here

Investors should think about buying some individual stocks as about a trillion dollars worth of companies are due to go public, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Thursday.

Index funds, as promoted by the late John Bogle, typically beat most individual money managers in the long run, but Cramer said some stocks are popping as the major averages make little noise.

The top U.S. indexes all rose about 0.30 percent on the session.

“Starting with the Lyft IPO, I think individual stock picking is going to start making a bit of a comeback. I sense the excitement, the possibilities, but don’t leave it to just the IPOs,” the “Mad Money” host said. “There’s something good going on here in all sorts of high-quality companies. You just need to be curious, stop paying attention to politics, and pay attention to what you like and what you know, and I think you can make some mad money.”

Cramer recalled that some cloud stocks popped “dramatically” when they went public, and that investors made money off of Twitter’s and even Facebook’s IPOs. There has not been a group of household names going public lately, but when they do it starts out steady and then “heats up very fast,” he said.

Big names such as Lyft, Airbnb, and Uber are in the lineup this year. Brokers try to “entice you into the casino for the next one,” he added.

“They know that if they can price these IPOs at lower levels, where the demand far exceeds the supply, they can engineer a beautiful pop that will beckon more people to put in for the next deals,” Cramer said.

Additionally, investors can own some individual stocks to buy and sell after doing homework on the companies, he said. These stocks can be owned with your “mad money,” which Cramer explains as excess capital outside of retirement investments that can be used for picking securities.

The host highlighted that PVH popped nearly 15 percent, Lululemon spiked more than 14 percent, and Five Below climbed above 8 percent in Thursday’s session. He said the stock jumps at each of these companies could have been spotted

He recalled lessons he learned from investors David Darst, who is a frequent CNBC guest, and Peter Lynch, the former manager of the Magellan Fund at Fidelity.

“David tried to get you to look all around, talk to everybody—taxi drivers, passengers on a train, passerbys, people in elevators—wanted you to find out what they’re thinking, what they’re doing,” he said. “Peter Lynch said you need to buy the stocks of companies you know from your day-to-day after doing some homework, of course, to make sure the business is actually doing well.”

PVH, which owns fashion brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, was a buy because its CEO Manny Chirico is dependable and has been working on the one division that gave it a shortfall, he said.

Five Below, a growing discount store concept, is expanding nationally, which Lynch has written is a big reason to buy a stock, Cramer said.

Lululemon is a good buy just by doing some research, he added.

“Again, I love index funds. I think they’re the perfect vehicle for your retirement fund,” Cramer said. “But if you’ve got some extra mad money that you can afford to risk losing, I’m a big believer in picking stocks so long as you do the homework.”

Disclosure: Cramer’s charitable trust owns shares of Five Below.

Can Small Cap Tailored Brands Go Business Casual?

On Monday, a Wall Street Journal article (Men Ditch Suits, and Retailers Struggle to Adapt) noted that the U.S. men’s suit market has shrunk 8% to $1.98 billion since 2015 (although the pace of the decline has moderated in recent years) with small cap men’s wear stock Tailored Brands (NYSE: TLRD) seeming to bear much of the brunt of changing consumer tastes. 

As the leading specialty retailer of men’s tailored clothing and largest men’s formalwear provider in the U.S. and Canada, small cap Tailored Brands was created following the 2014 acquisition of Jos. A. Bank by Men’s Wearhouse. The Company serves customers through an expansive omni-channel network that includes over 1,400 stores in the U.S. and Canada as well as branded e-commerce websites. Brands include Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank, Joseph Abboud, Moores Clothing for Men and K&G plus the Company operates an international corporate apparel and workwear group consisting of Dimensions, Alexandra and Yaffy in the United Kingdom and Twin Hill in the United States.

Note that Tailored Brands has been without a CEO since September when its former chief retired and shares fell off hard (around 25%) two weeks ago when the Company reported fiscal fourth quarter and year ended February 2, 2019 results plus provided guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2019:

Jos. A. Bank (a)       $215.4     (6.7%)     (0.5%)
K&G       $ 73.9     (7.5%)     0.9%
Moores(a) (c)       $ 48.0     (8.8%)     2.8%
Corporate Apparel       $ 55.7     (23.3%)      
             
Total Company(d)       $768.1     (10.7%)      

 

Moving forward, the Company expects comparable sales for:

Men’s Wearhouse to be down 3% to 5% Jos. A. Bank to be down 3% to 5% Moores to be down 5% to 7% K&G to be flat to up 2%.

The Chairman stated:

“While all of our retail brands delivered positive comps for the full year, during the fourth quarter, comps at Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank were down and this trend has continued into the first quarter of 2019. We attribute the current softness to both the macro-environment as well as the need for us to execute more quickly and effectively on our core growth strategies: deliver personalized products and services, create inspiring and seamless experiences in and across every channel, and build brands that stand for something more than just price.”

After earnings, B.Riley FBR analyst Susan Anderson cut her price target from $20 to $11 noting the particularly sharp same-store sales declines at Men’s Wearhouse and Jos A. Bank when she lowered her rating on Tailored Brands stock from Buy to Neutral. She said the drop in sales was “partially due to misalignment in product mix with the customer’s expectations, particularly in terms of a lower penetration of business casual options.”

Anderson also added in a phone interview with Barron’s that the Men’s casual is an oversaturated market while Tailored Brands still has “too many stores.” Plus:

“It’s even more difficult for them than these smaller retailers that really have nothing to lose. It’s really important that they drive loyalty and cater to the consumer’s needs… They’ve been slow to move toward higher penetration of business casual. They could potentially have a higher mix. I think it’s definitely a move in the right direction, but it could be an image for the consumer that they have a change.”

The Wall Street Journal did note that at Jos. A. Bank’s newly renovated Midtown Manhattan store, the ground floor is dedicated to jeans, khakis, dress shirts and blazers while suits are relegated to the upper level. They also quoted Mary Beth Blake, Jos. A. Bank’s brand president, as saying that tailored clothing retailers have even more of a reason to exist now that suits are out of favor:

“It’s harder for men to dress business casual. They need more assistance… We want to send the message that we can help with more than just suits”

That does seem to make sense and remember: Its hard enough to buy a suit off the rack that actually looks good on you – so forget buying one over the Internet as it probably needs tailoring (although the Company will be increasing its e-commerce presence). 

Nevertheless, it could still be a long time before Tailored Brands can safely be considered as a turnaround play.

Top Medical Stocks For 2019

There’s perhaps no social program in the U.S. that’s relied upon more than Social Security. With zero disrespect to Medicare, which primarily helps to partially cover big-dollar medical expenses for seniors during their golden years, no social program does more than Social Security.

According to the Social Security Administration, more than 3 out of 5 current retirees leans on the program for at least half of their monthly income. Then there’s the analysis from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities that finds Social Security income is responsible for keeping 22.1 million beneficiaries above the federal poverty line, including 15.1 million retired workers. It’s simply that important.

    Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Ralph Lauren outperformed the industry in the past six months backed by robust bottom-line performance in recent quarters. Notably, third-quarter fiscal 2018 marked the company’s 12th consecutive earnings beat while sales lagged estimates after a beat in the previous quarter. Additionally, the company’s Way Forward Plan is on track, and it remains keen on bolstering digital and international presence. Also, the company has been gaining from favorable geographic and channel mix shifts along with lower promotions and reduced product costs. Further, management adjusted fiscal 2018 outlook to account for the positive currency rates, which are likely to aid revenues and operating margins. However, its North America business continues to suffer due to distribution and brand exits, planned reduction in shipments and promotions to enhance the quality of sales, and lower customer demand.”

    Last month, after learning that investment banker Morgan Stanley had recommended buying shares of Brazilian plane maker Embraer, I decided to take a look at the stock myself. Morgan Stanley, you see, was of the opinion that investors were “attributing too little value to ERJ’s Executive/Defense Divisions,” and the banker was attracted by the stock’s sell-off after Boeing bid less than expected to acquire control over Embraer’s larger commercial division.
