Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

My interest in GNC Holdings (NYSE:GNC) stems from an interest in basic cheapness and deep value investments. Below I’ve highlighted some of the ‘cheapness’ valuations of GNC at $8.25 (as of March 3, 2017 close).

GNC’s current market cap is $564 million and has an enterprise value of $2.7 billion with 68,403,901 shares outstanding. Forward P/E = 4.91 P/FCF = 4.06 TTM highest stock price of $35.90, lowest stock price of $6.95

The merits of a GNC long position are well documented in other Seeking Alpha articles, especially from the spirited writer Courage and Conviction Investing (I have really enjoyed reading his work). Courage and Conviction has written extensively on the potential near- and long-term catalysts of the GNC turnaround model under interim CEO Robert Maran. I’ve highlighted a few of the bullish investment thesis points below:

Despite growth in online supplement retailers (e.g. Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and bodybuilders.com) and wholesale shops (e.g. Costco (NASDAQ:COST)), GNC continues to be profitable, generating free cash flow. Potential short squeeze if near-term catalysts materialize due to high percentage of short floats. New GNC business model will gain traction and produce incremental same-store comps and increases in revenue by Q3 2017. Indeed, in the most recent earnings call, GNC management said they are seeing 7% growth in transactions from the new GNC model. Insider purchasing – interim CEO Robert Maran purchased nearly $5.4 million worth of GNC stock on the open market late in February. Other insider purchases as well. GNC could be a potential takeover target. On Friday, March 3, 2017, GNC started the day up 8% after rumors of a KKR takeover.

As a contrarian investor, I am drawn to the speculative appeal of the long thesis for GNC. I think many of the bullish GNC Seeking Alpha contributors have done an excellent job articulating the long argument, and I don’t have anything truly unique to add to this discussion.

    TheStreet’s founder and Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer weighs in on Tuesday’s trending stocks from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange including Home Depot (HD) , Apple (AAPL) and Shake Shack (SHAK) .

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    Shares of fast food burger chain Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK) soared on Friday, rising as much as 24.4%. At the time of this writing, the stock is up about 23%.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Tastier returns can be had in the faster growing “better burger” niche. You can’t buy into the two cult darlings in this space, as Five Guys and In-N-Out aren’t publicly traded. The next best-known concept would be Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK), which is faring well with a saucy 43% return. However, even that market-thumping return pales when pitted against a more obscure burger chain that was left for dead last year.
