&l;em&g;(This is an extended version of the piece that ran in Forbes Magazine)&l;/em&g;
Adam De Chiara, a 27-year commodities veteran at $4 billion in assets CoreCommodity LLC, has seen a bear market, or three. He created the ubiquitous Bloomberg Commodity Index and survived $20 oil, now De Chiara says rising rates and a revving economy make once-plunging commodities impossible to ignore. &a;ldquo;We are in the early stages of what is going to be a protracted bull market in commodities,&a;rdquo; he says.
And now&s;s a good time to pay attention. Relative to REITs, bonds, stocks and emerging markets, De Chiara&s;s &l;a href=&q;http://www.alpsfunds.com/documents/alps-corecommodity-management-completecommodities-strategy-fund-pres-20180331.pdf&q; target=&q;_blank&q; rel=&q;noopener noreferrer&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;research&l;/a&g;&a;nbsp;shows commodities are significantly undervalued compared to long-term averages. The about 30-person CoreCommodity team is a mainstay in the sector regardless of where valuations sit. The firm builds portfolios of direct commodity holdings, typically using futures and also owns equities of commodity producers. Its funds are generally owned by institutional clients seeking diversification from their stock and bond holdings.

Although there’s a lot to recommend the proposed new dating featurefrom Facebook (NASDAQ:FB)– enough that Match (NASDAQ:MTCH) should not just shrug it off — ultimately the social networking platform won’t prove as much of a threat as feared.

Stock No. 4: We’re down to the M’s. Match Group (NASDAQ:MTCH). Match.com. A lot of older people my age in our 50’s or so, we grew up with that over the last 10 or 20 years. To me that’s almost like the LinkedIn, but for dating. That’s kind of the more corporate, professional world site, but many other people know and use Tinder, which is maybe for a younger generation. I’m sure it’s used by people of all ages. Never by me, as a happily married man.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now: Panasonic Corporation (PCRFY)
- [By ]
CBAK is in a very competitive industry, as well as being small relative to its competitors. Among the Company’s competitors are giants like Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), but overall it faces competition from Japan, Korea, and China. Although CBAK states that “we are able to leverage our low-cost advantage to compete favorably with our competitors”, it is hard to see that being the reality, especially when looking at the above gross margins. Still, the Company may enjoy lower labor costs, since it sources labor locally and apparently it has “higher consistency and safety in product quality, which enables us to compete favorably with local competitors”. But given the greater resources of at least some of its competitors and the constantly evolving dynamics of the industry, competition is surely a risk factor to consider.

The production issue for batteries may improve with added input from partner Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY). They currently produce battery cells for Tesla in Nevada, and in Japan. At their recent earnings call CEO Kazuhiro Tsuga said they were looking at manufacturing battery cells at a new plant in China in conjunction with Tesla. They also predicted their automation energy business profit would double this year. This can be seen as a vote of confidence in Tesla and a bullish sign for Tesla stock. However, according to reports in the Nikkei Asian Review, there is as yet no definite commitment for a joint venture in China. Panasonic is the world’s largest battery supplier for EV’s.

Instead of dealing with consumers itself, the Campbell, Calif.-based company develops and markets software to corporate clients to build and run their web stores and to handle online purchases, shipping, and returns. Magento also helps merchants sell products through social media ads. Its customers include Canon Inc. (NYSE ADR: CAJ) and Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE: RST).

Bon-Ton’s disappearance is likely to cause even more distress for Washington Prime and CBL & Associates Properties (NYSE:CBL). Both mid-tier mall operators have been suffering from department-store chains closing anchor locations at their properties.
- [By Matthew Frankel]
This is particularly true when it comes to lower-end (“Class B” and “Class C”) mall operators like CBL & Associates (NYSE:CBL), just to name one example. CBL operates Class B and C malls in mid-sized markets, and a staggering 60% of its properties have a Sears or J.C. Penney (which isn’t in much better shape) occupying an anchor location.
