My goal in this segment is to unlock both short-term and long-term growth in stocks that have just reported earnings. These stocks are specifically subject to enormous volatility, as earnings reports are seen (and rightfully so) as a significant display of a company’s progression in the market. What I offer you is an analysis of the economic well-being of the company, and whether I think the stock is a buy, hold or sell for either (or both) the short term or long term. To get used to the format of this segment, take a look at my last article on Tile Shop Holdings (NASDAQ:TTS).
After careful consideration, I have rated Air Lease Corp. (NYSE:AL) as a buy for the short term.
Air Lease Q4 Earnings
The airline industry has been doing extraordinarily well as of late, and investors have surely taken notice of Warren Buffett’s increase investment in the industry. Aircraft manufacturing companies like Boeing (NYSE:BA) are doing well, as well as airline companies such as like Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) and United (NYSE:UAL). In this thriving industry, Air Lease is a company that will surely benefit and prosper. It is essentially the “middle man” in this industry, buying directly from Boeing, and then leasing aircraft to multiple airlines. Let’s take a look at Air Lease Corp.’s Q4 to get insight into how the company is faring in today’s economy.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Snap-On Incorporated(SNA)

Coming up on this episode of Mad Money: Cramer interviews Nick Pinchuk, CEO of Snap-on (SNA) . Plus, don’t miss the Lightning Round. Which stocks is Cramer bullish on?
- [By John Divine]
Snap-on Incorporated (SNA) is my choice for the Best Stocks for 2016 competition. At a market cap of $10 billion, I doubt it will double over the next year, as some of the smaller companies in this competition might be able to.
That said, Snap-on, which manufactures and markets hand tools and diagnostic equipment, is a rock-solid company with an attractive valuation and impressive growth. It goes for 22 times earnings, pays a consistent and modest dividend, and has been around since 1920.
As cars get more tech-heavy and complicated, newer tools and better diagnostics will be needed — and that’s SNA’s bread ‘n’ butter.

Snap-on, which is more than 100 years old, provides hand and power tools for individuals and professionals, including auto-shop tools and auto diagnostic equipment.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Meritage Corporation(MTH)
- [By Jason Hall]
WhenMeritage Homes Corp(NYSE:MTH) last reported earnings to wrap up fiscal 2016, it left investors with reason to be concerned. The company finished the year with strong 15% home-closing revenue growth in the fourth quarter, 19% home-closing revenue growth for the full year, and a 15% jump in earnings per share for the year. Unfortunately, the homebuilder reported that its unit sales, and that its backlog of homes on order, were down from the year-ago period in the fourth quarter — not a positive metric considering the general strength of the new homes market and the company’s success in expanding and growing in recent years.
