Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now

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.

(Author Note: This is article #8 of a series of 10 articles on undervalued value stocks I will be releasing over the next two months to form my 2020 investment portfolio; comments and feedback welcomed!)

#7: Alaska Air

Alaska Air Group (NYSE:ALK) is the holding company of Alaska Airlines (Alaska), Virgin America Inc., Horizon Air (Horizon) and other business units. The Company operates through three segments: Mainline, Regional and Horizon and operate in major air hubs in the western and eastern US.

Investment Thesis

As major airliners have enjoyed the fruits of higher travel spending habits alongside cheaper fairs and increased revenues, Alaska Air has underperformed other airlines as woes regarding the integration of their merger with Virgin America and their organic expansion efforts came into question. As most major airlines have risen substantially in 2017, Alaska Air lost over 17% of their value in the past fiscal year.

However, as the integration of Virgin America and the administrative consolidation that followed is proving fruitful as sales expand high single digit, net income headwinds seize to effect EPS and revenue per mile increases with new organic growth measures like route expansion and pricing effectiveness.
