Top Low Price Stocks For 2018: Texas Roadhouse, Inc.(TXRH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Steakhouse chain Texas Roadhouse (NASDAQ:TXRH) has had to deal with an extremely difficult business environment for restaurant companies, and investors know all too well how tough times can hurt major players in the industry. Last quarter, Texas Roadhouse disappointed investors with sluggish results, and the company wanted to start 2017 on a better footing.

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Texas Roadhouse(TXRH) tumbled more than 12% on Wednesday as itsfourth-quarter earningsand revenue fell short of expectations.

    The restaurant chain said it earned 29 cents a share on revenue of $484.7 million. Analysts were expecting earnings per share of 38 cents on revenue of $497.3 million.

    Same-restaurant sales grew 1.2% at company restaurants and 2% at domestic franchises. For the first 55 days of the first quarter, Texas Roadhouse said that same-store sales rose 1.5%.

    The company also raised its dividend 10.5% to 21 cents a share.

    Some analysts urged investors to keep the faith in the stock.Barclay’s JeffreyBernsteinreiterated an Overweight rating and $47 price target on thestock:

    We believe TXRH fundamentals remain best-in-class. That said, the near-term focus remains on directional comps. And not unlike the broader industry, TXRH comps eased significantly to close 2016. Such led to disappointing 4Q16 results from top to bottom. Importantly, while the brand ‘is not immune’ to industry comp headwinds, the relative outperformance to the category was maintained. Looking to 2017, key guidance metrics were reiterated. While questions remain on whether the recent easing of industry comps will persist, we remain comforted by TXRH’s relative outperformance and easing comps as we move through 2017.

    Maxim’s Stephen Andersonreiterated a Buy rating, although he took his price target down $4, to $52:

    In our view, TXRH is not immune to the broader slowdown in Casual Dining, but we believe the company will emerge stronger than peers in the next few quarters.TXRHs disappointing 4Q16 comp of +1.3% (blended) was pulled down by a rare negative comp month in December (-2.1%), marking the first time this occurred in almost four years. Comps were +3% or better in both October and November, and comps so far in 1Q17 are positive despite a stormy start to the quarter in

Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2018

The New Home Company Inc. (NYSE:NWHM) is an undervalued homebuilder set for growth going into 2018. According to extensive modelling, it appears that the company is undervalued by about 18% at the current market price.

NWHM was recently named the Fastest Growing Public Company in Orange County by the Orange County Business Journal, based on revenue growth of 208% over the last two years. Despite this growth, the stock has only returned 6% per year since the IPO in 2014. This lags the S&P 500 by about 4%.

New Home Company is setting itself up for future growth, with numerous expansion plans currently in place. It was recently announced that the company will open two neighborhoods at Esencia at Rancho Mission Viejo. The Azure neighborhood features 79 homes priced from the high $300,000s to the mid-$400,000s. The Cobalt neighborhood features 72 paired homes that are priced from the mid-$500,000s.

Additionally, New Home Company announced the acquisition of 53 Single-Family Homes in Gilbert, Arizona. The homes will offer three to six bedrooms, three and one-half to five and one-half bathrooms, three- to four-car garages and up to 5,028 square feet of floor space. Pricing is expected to start in the $700,000s.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2018: Coca-Cola Company (The)(KO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO) traded up 1.15% at $44.90X. The stock’s 52-week range is $39.88 to $46.01. Volume was about 45% below the daily average of around 12.8 million. The company had no specific news.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Coca-Cola (KO) is in the midst of a massive reorganization that should provide a boost its business down the road. Unfortunately, its earnings show a company that could remain stuck in place for a while.

    Getty Images

    Coca-Cola reported a profit of 43 cents a share, missing forecasts for 44 cents, on sales of $9.1 billion, beating expectations for $8.9 billion. Coke also said that earnings could fall 1% to 3% in 2016. The company said that it would cut its corporate staffing by about 20%, as it seeks to cut costs.

    Wells Fargo’s Bonnie Herzog sees “limited near-term upside” in shares of Coca-Cola. She explains why:

    Solid Performance in Most Markets Offset By Strong Headwinds in a Few Maintain Cautious Near-Term Outlook KO reported Q1 EPS of $0.43, below our/cons. ests. of $0.44. Broadly, KOs story and our cautious view of it remains unchanged. We see much to be encouraged by, including the renewed focus on growth, a new management team and reporting structure, strong performance of Coke Zero, and increased productivity savings targets (now $3.8bn by 2019, up from $3bn).

    However, we expect headwinds to remain very strong for the near-term, reflected in KOs underwhelming FY17/FY18 guidance which remains largely unchanged. Bottom Line We continue to believe that KO has a significant opportunity in FY18/19 following its Transition period to reaccelerate earnings growth and demonstrate the merits of its strategic overhaul. We therefore encourage l.t. investors to stay invested, but given substantial headwinds, we see limited near-term upside in the stock. We maintain our Market Perform rating and our $42 – $44 valuation range, but lower our FY17/FY18 EPS $0.01 to $1.88/$1.94.

    Shares of Coca-Cola have dropped 0.3% to $43.13 at 3:02 p.m. today.

    We recently reached out to our retailer contacts to get an updated read on recent performance of Monster. Based on retailer feedback, we see a negative risk/reward for the stock ahead of Q4 results on 3/1 given: (1) soft scanner data, particularly in Dec & Jan as energy sales are definitely soft compared to other categories according to one retailer while another reported Monster started 2017 off horribly; (2) Java production issues persist; (3) poor retailer feedback on the rollout of Mutant continues in part based on the view that Coca-Cola (KO) is not executing on all cylinders and consumer reception of the product has not shown it to be anything great and certainly at this point is no threat to Mt. Dew; and (4) retailers modest outlook for Monster in 2017 (low- to mid-single digit growth on average).

Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2018: Murphy Oil Corporation(MUR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Murphy USA (MUSA) first caught my attention after Southeastern Asset Management acquired a massive stake ($668mm) in its former parent company Murphy Oil Corporation (MUR) in Q1 2013. One thing about Murphy Oil Corporation I noticed after an initial glance through their 10-K and annual report was its ownership of a valuable fuel and convenience retailer segment with high ROIC, valuable real estate, low CAPEX requirements, and relatively decent growth prospects that was under-followed and whose underlying value was concealed by the parent company’s core production and exploration business.
