    SIT THIS ONE OUT and you could miss an American economic revolution that could send three little pot stocks soaring up to 1,000%. Click here to see why…

    Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) is in the middle of a big battle between the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Motion Picture Academy. According to the letter, the DOJ is concerned about a recent rule change by the MPA that requires films to be released more widely in traditional movie theaters to qualify for Academy Awards. This could limit the participation in these awards for companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN). The DOJ suggests the rule may raise anti-trust concerns in the future. Shares of Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: PLAY) popped more than 7.5% after the restaurant and gaming chain topped Wall Street earnings expectations. The firm beat both top- and bottom-line revenue expectations and reported a big jump in same-store sales. Today, look for more earnings reports from Acuity Brands Inc. (NYSE: AYI) and Signet Jewelers Ltd. (NYSE: SIG).

    5G Is Coming: The tech breakthrough of the century could rest on this $6 stock – get all the details here.

    Investors in Lyft Inc. (NASDAQ: LYFT) are fuming after the price of the ride-sharing giant’s stock fell below the launch price of $72. Shares plunged almost 12% Monday, and they’re now off sharply from the high of $86 that we saw on the first day of trading. Some Wall Street analysts suggest the fall in price is a signal that valuations of Unicorn companies like Lyft and Uber are too lofty in today’s market. Today, we have to take a victory lap since we warned investors to avoid the Lyft IPO. Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is about to make things far more difficult for its grocery store competition. In an effort to jump-start sales at Whole Foods, Amazon plans to slash prices Wednesday on more than 500 products, including produce and meat. Look for earnings reports from Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: PLAY), NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE: DG), and GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME).

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019

S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Jeffrey Loo explains why he’s maintaining his Buy rating on Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (VRX) following reports it had rejected a takeover bid earlier this year:

Reuters

According to unconfirmed reports, including the Wall Street Journal, Valeant rejected an unsolicited joint takeover bid from Takeda Pharmaceutical, the largest Japanese drug firm, and private equity firm TPG. The offer didn’t include a firm price and came before Joseph Papa was named Valeant’s new CEO. We aren’t surprised by the inquiry as we believe Valeant has attractive assets and we view the shares as undervalued. We think news of the proposal may potentially lead to other bidders stepping forward. But we would not be surprised if Valeant sells off assets to raise cash to help de-leverage.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

Pattern Energy Group Inc. (NASDAQ:PEGI) offers investors an impressive 8.4% yield. That sounds like a pretty rewarding way for income investors to invest in renewable power, which is the company’s focus. In fact, it makes renewable-power peer Brookfield Renewable Partners LP’s (NYSE:BEP) yield of 6.3% look small by comparison. But don’t chase that higher yield until you read this, because you’re likely to decide that Brookfield Renewable Partners, despite having a lower yield, is the better dividend stock.

Thanks, Mom and Dad

Both Pattern Energy Group and Brookfield Renewable Partners have parents that oversee them. This relationship is most clear in the case of Brookfield Renewable Partners, which is run by Canadian alternative asset manager Brookfield Asset Management (NYSE:BAM), its general partner. This giant asset manager, with more than 100 years of history behind it and roughly $290 billion in assets under management, basically oversees day-to-day operations, sources acquisitions, and even helps provide funding (it has a roughly 60% stake in the partnership).

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Tree.com Inc.(TREE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market climbed sharply on Thursday, responding well to favorable earnings results from several corners of the market. Major benchmarks were up 1% to 2%, with particularly good performance from the Nasdaq Composite thanks to the tech sector’s outperformance during the day. Yet some stocks suffered from bad news that cast doubt on companies’ ability to benefit from generally favorable business conditions. MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), Arch Coal (NYSE:ARCH), and LendingTree (NASDAQ:TREE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Rhumbline Advisers decreased its position in LendingTree (NASDAQ:TREE) by 13.9% in the first quarter, according to its most recent 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The fund owned 13,988 shares of the financial services provider’s stock after selling 2,252 shares during the period.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

    The S&P 500 stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close was Marathon Oil Corp. (NYSE: MRO) which traded up about 5% at $21.81. The stock’s 52-week range is $10.64 to $22.74. Volume was nearly 16 million compared to the daily average volume of 11 million.

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) could outperform in that scenario.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Back in 2011, Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) elected to spin off Marathon Petroleum. At the time, much of the reasoning for the split was that both entities would garner higher valuations than as an integrated company. Also, by separating them, both could best allocate capital to grow shareholder value.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Mark Carney may be wondering at times if less is more when he speaks to financial markets.

After a bruising month that’s seen his own signals on interest rates questioned and one of his deputies forced to apologize for calling the economy menopausal, communication is once again a hot topic for the Bank of England governor.

Carney, who arrived at the BOE in 2013 with forward guidance as his signature policy, will come under more scrutiny this week when he faces a grilling from U.K. lawmakers. He’ll also give speeches in London and Stockholm.

“Some people would say the safest thing for the Bank of England to do right now is to go back to being mystical,” said Clea Bourne, a senior lecturer and financial communications specialist at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Communication dominated Carney’s press conference following the BOE’s May 10 policy announcement, and will doubtless figure in Tuesday’s session in Parliament. Carney and his colleagues will be questioned on the decision, which saw officials hold off on a rate hike that had been seen as a certainty just weeks earlier. Brexit and its impact on the economy will also probably feature at the hearing.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Dave & Buster's Entertainment, Inc.(PLAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matt Hogan]

    Casual-dining chains have not been winners during this economic expansion. Millenials, with their need for more social media-worthy experiences, have been blamed for the decline in conjunction with Baby Boomers moving onto fixed incomes as they retire.

    Dave & Buster's Entertainment Inc (NASDAQ: PLAY) provides an eat, drink, play, and watch experience for consumers. This hybrid entertainment/dining experience has fared well since going public in 2012, attracting higher-income adults in the 21-39 age range.
    Poor same-store sales last quarter knocked the premium off the stock price, but top and bottom-line growth were still strong. Margins and efficiency ratios top its competitors, and Wall Street and quant valuation models agree that there is a strong upside for this diamond in the casual-dining rough.

    You'll Probably Want to Sit Down for This

    Casual dining, the traditional sit-down, full-service restaurant experience is getting hit by demographics. Millennials want hip, social-media worthy experiences and retiring Baby Boomers are thrifty on their fixed incomes. Headlines such as "Millennials Are Killing Chains Like Buffalo Wild Wings And Applebee's" are not uncommon.

AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc Stock Will Soar on Summer Blockbusters

Sometimes, industries that are left for dead aren’t actually going to die. In that scenario, stocks that are priced-for-death could stage huge rebounds. Such is the case with AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc (NYSE:AMC) and the movie theater industry. Movie theaters were presumed to be a dying breed thanks to technology making at-home entertainment better, cheaper, and more convenient than ever. As such, AMC stock dropped from nearly $35 in late 2016 to just over $10 in late 2017.

As it turns out, though, movie theaters aren’t as dead as everyone thought. The 2018 box office is off to a red-hot start, and with a stellar movie line-up still to come, it looks like 2018 could set box office records.

How does the box office set records in a declining movie industry? Maybe the movie industry isn’t as bad off as we all thought. Although at-home entertainment is growing in popularity, movie theaters are adapting to become experience destinations that consumers still love to frequent.

At the heart of this rebound is AMC stock. It has bounced off its $10 lows in late 2017 to above $17 today, a near 70% rally in a just a few months.

This rally in AMC has more firepower. Fundamentals imply that shares remain materially undervalued in a long-term window. Meanwhile, the stock could get a near-term boost thanks to a robust summer movie line-up.

All in all, AMC stock looks like a buy here and now.

Here’s a deeper look:

Movie Theaters Aren’t Dead

We all know the story. Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is killing shopping malls, while Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is killing move theaters.

But maybe killing is the wrong term. Perhaps the better way to say this is Netflix and Amazon are forcing shopping malls and movie theaters to change.

Indeed, they are doing that. Malls have gone from pure shopping destinations with cheap food courts to multi-purpose experience destinations complete with shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, arcades (think Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc (NASDAQ:PLAY)), and much more.

This transition has worked, and as a result, mall-based retailers are reporting much better numbers and mall stocks are soaring. Just look at shares of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE:ANF), Urban Outfitters, Inc. (NASDAQ:URBN), American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE:AEO), Macy’s Inc (NYSE:M), and Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE:JWN) over the past several months.

The trend is up, up, and away.

Compare Brokers

Meanwhile, movie theaters have undergone their own transformation. They have gone from pure big-screen, movie-watching destinations to experience destinations with premium reclined seating, robust food menus, alcohol bars, and enhanced viewing and listening capability.

This transition has also worked. Movie theater attendance is up, and expected to rebound strongly this year after hitting a 25-year low.

Meanwhile, ticket prices are going up, as are both total and per capita concession spending (AMC reported that the number of attendees buying concessions has risen from 64% in 2011 to 71% today, while average concession spending per patron in the U.S. rose more than 5% year-over-year last year).

In the long-term, AMC will do just fine. Yes, Netflix adoption will rise by a ton over the next several years. But even with Netflix adoption in the U.S. at all-time high levels, movie theater attendance is inflecting upward. Clearly, the two can co-exist.

AMC Stock Is Undervalued

By my numbers, AMC stock is worth somewhere around $20 today.

Revenue growth trended around 5-6% per year before this year (acquisitions caused a huge spike in revenues). Over the next several years, revenue growth may be slower than that 5-6% range, but not much slower. Revenue growth of 3-5% seems sustainable long-term.

Meanwhile, operating margins normally hover around 6-8%. They should be able to stay in that range because concessions are the company’s big profit driver, and concessions spending is on the rise. Thus, 7% operating margins seem sustainable long-term.

Roughly 4% revenue growth over the next 5 years on 7% operating margins implies revenues of $6.2 billion and operating profits of $433 million in 5 years. Taking out $100 million to net interest expense, 25% for taxes, and dividing by 130 million shares, that equates to around $1.90 in earnings per share in 5 years.

A market-average 16-times forward multiple on those $1.90 earnings implies a four-year forward price target of $30. Discounted back by 10% per year, that equates to a present value of above $20.

Bottom Line on AMC Stock

Fears related to the death of movie theaters have been greatly exaggerated. As such, AMC stock remains materially undervalued at current levels.

Moreover, this stock could get a big boost this summer thanks to a blockbuster movie line-up which features Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Solo: A Star Wars Story, Ocean’s 8, The Incredibles 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
