Best Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019

Defense stocks have been hot investments for more than five years, with many of the biggest defense contractors delivering more than double the S&P 500’s total returns. And while a substantial portion of that return has been the tremendous profit growth in the industry, investors have also been willing to steadily pay a higher premium for defense stocks, paying up front for future profits. And at some point, the defense spending cycle will turn, and the outsize returns of the past decade could turn into underperformance. 

But that doesn’t mean investors looking to add defense stocks to their portfolio should avoid the entire sector; there are opportunities to be had. These Motley Fool contributors have identified two companies with substantial military and commercial opportunities in AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ:AVAV) and Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA), as well as undervalued British defense giant BAE Systems PLC (ADR) (NASDAQOTH:BAESY) as defense stocks worth watching closely this month.

Top 10 Stocks To Own Right Now

ICICI Direct’s research report on Titan Company

Titan’s stock price has witnessed a correction of ~13% since our last result update in the backdrop of speculation on an increase in import duty on gold, with the aim of narrowing current account deficit (CAD). However, the central government maintained status quo on gold import duty but increased duties on imported jewellery to 20% from 15% and on cut & polished diamonds to 7.5% from 5%. The hike on these products is unlikely to impact Titan, as most articles that go into manufacturing jewellery are sourced from domestic markets. Moreover, in the past couple of years Titan has revamped its business model by enhancing the share of gold procurement through exchange programmes from ~15% in FY13 to 40% in FY18, thus reducing its dependency on imports. We believe its business model has the inherent strength that would enable it to capitalise on larger opportunities like wedding jewellery (increase contribution from 35% in FY18 to 50% by FY23) thereby providing impetus to revenue and profit growth. We expect revenues and earnings to grow at a CAGR of 20% and 28%, respectively, in FY18-20E.

Don’t expect Ford stock to drive higher, some analysts say. 

Ford Motor Co. (F) is preparing for a scaled deployment of its Autonomous Vehicle program in 2021 but as the business is not making money currently, the Dearborn, Mich.-based automaker’s current cost-cutting plans may not be enough to earn Ford a higher earnings multiple, according to Piper Jaffray & Co.

Ford has been trimming its product portfolio and doubling down on its most profitable segments. The company is also committed to delivering improvements in China and other underperforming global markets, Piper Jaffray analysts noted.

“We appreciate the focus on ‘fitness,’ as well as Ford’s newfound willingness to cull less profitable platform,” Piper Jaffray analysts Alexander Potter and Winnie Dong wrote in a May 15 research note.

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

&l;p&g;Come October of 2018 and Canada will become one of the few developed countries to legalize recreational marijuana for adult-use. This revolutionary move has not only sent a wave of joy in the people of the country, but has also turned into a massive business opportunity for cannabis manufacturers, who had been restricting their output to only medical use until now. Consequently, pot stocks such as Canopy Growth has seen a surge in its stock price in the last few months, as investors are trying to leverage on the potential upside that the stock can offer. The company also has a partnership whereby &l;a href=&q;https://www.forbes.com/companies/constellation-brands/&q;&g;Constellation Brands&l;/a&g; (NYSE: STZ) has a 9.9% stake in the company.

However, the medical marijuana producer witnessed an initial sharp drop in its price after it released its fourth quarter and fiscal 2018 results. The stock plunged more than 10% to CAD 36.93 per share, as the company failed to meet the consensus expectations on both the revenue as well as earnings front. We figure that this is a market over-reaction to the earnings miss and believe that the stock has a huge upside potential with the opening up of the recreational marijuana market in third quarter of fiscal 2019. We have a &l;a href=&q;http://dashboards.trefis.com/no-login-required/8o4SkdRX&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;price estimate of CAD 53 per share for Canopy Growth&l;/a&g;.
