Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

The pound is looking increasingly cheap.

The currency is currently undervalued by almost 19 percent against the dollar and by 8 percent against the euro, according to the Big Mac purchasing-power parity model. Underwhelming U.K. economic data and the dwindling prospects of interest-rate hikes from the Bank of England have driven sterling to the lowest level this year at around $1.33.

“The very weak valuation by historical standards makes investors hesitant to believe in more structural sterling downside,” said Andreas Steno Larsen, a currency strategist at Nordea Bank AB.

    The stock market was generally quiet again on Thursday, with minimal moves lower for most major benchmarks. Once again, technology stocks helped to support the rest of the market, and the Nasdaq Composite outperformed most other stock indexes. New tariffs once again reminded investors of the threats on the trade front, although at least in the U.S., most economic data continue to support the idea of sustained growth for the foreseeable future. Some individual companies also had good news that lifted their shares. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Synopsys (NASDAQ:SNPS), and FireEye (NASDAQ:FEYE) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch For 2019

Given the S&P 500’s 16% gain over the past 12 months and its 50% rise over the last three years, it’s fair to say stocks have performed very well recently. While such a strong run-up is nice for investors’ portfolio values, it makes finding good stocks at reasonable prices a more difficult task.

But one market leader with strong fundamentals surprisingly continues to trade at a very conservative valuation. That company is none other than Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) — parent company of ESPN; Disney theme parks; and a thriving studio business that includes movies from Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, and Disney. In a market like this, Disney offers investors a way to buy a quality company while allocating money to one of the few strong market leaders left with a conservative valuation.

An Overview
Disney’s recently reported third-quarter results drive home why Disney stock is such a steal at just 14 times earnings. The company’s fundamentals relative to its conservative valuation make the media giant appear undervalued.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Shares of Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) rocketed higher last week, after the consumer electronics giant reported strong results for the final quarter of fiscal 2019. As usual, the company beat its guidance last quarter. It also offered a solid outlook for fiscal 2020.

Thankfully for the consumer electronics retailer, other products picked up the slack.

(Bloomberg) — The slower-than-expected increase in worker pay shows that investors should feel safe in Treasuries, even after yields jumped in the past two weeks, according to PGIM’s Robert Tipp.

“Bonds are winning,” Tipp, the chief investment strategist at PGIM Fixed Income, said Friday on Bloomberg Television’s “Real Yield” program. “The fact we haven’t had wage growth is really exceptional. I think there’s a huge shadow supply of excess labor. The global competitiveness that’s out there is really keeping inflation below target around the world.”

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey

Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.

Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners(NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics(NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.

Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend

Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.

March existing home sales figures are scheduled for  Monday and new home sales for March along with the February S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index on Tuesday. As for homebuilders, Pulte Group, Inc. (NYSE: PHM) is scheduled to report  Q1 results Tuesday, and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE: DHI) is scheduled to report fiscal Q2 numbers on Thursday. The industry already has seen strong Q1 results from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN), and housing starts and building permits in March rose more than expected. These results, as well as those and the economic data from next week could provide clues for the industry going forward. After NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR) reports results this morning, Meritage Homes Corp. (NYSE: MTH) releases its Q1 results April 25. We’ll have to wait until next month for some of the other homebuilders, as well as from home improvement companies Home Depot, Inc. (NYSE: HD) and Lowe’s Companies Inc (NYSE: LOW), before we get a more complete snapshot of the housing market.

    Priestley:Yeah,absolutely. The first stock that you mentioned was NVR (NYSE:NVR). They focus on building luxury homes in Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania,and Virginia. They have three distinct brands:Ryan Homes, NV Homes and Heartland Homes. They’reactually the most expensive, I think, of the stocks that we’re going to talk about today. Their P/E is at 24X. But they’re also the biggest, and the past 12 months have seen the stock come up almost 50%. So, great pick! What exactly attracted you to NVR?

    For a business that is supposed to be relatively seasonal and cyclical, NVR (NYSE:NVR) has been enjoying an impressive run of growth. Not only did the company deliver impressive top- and bottom-line expansion, but it also showed positive trends on just about every operating metric. If there was one thing to critique, it’s how management is dividing up the benefits of these boom times.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: BlackBerry Limited(BBRY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jack Foley]

    BlackBerry(NSDQ:BBRY)stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).

  • [By Abdul Jawula] BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) tries to revive the brand but is it too little too late for BBRY stock?

However, they had a similar problem likeMicrosoft (NSDQ:MSFT)hadwith the Windows Phone project. Their refusal to adopt Android resulted in their smartphones becoming less-and-less desirable.

    BlackBerry’s (NSDQ:BBRY)turnaround has been moving at snail’s pace. In that context, BlackBerry’s deal with Ford (NYSE:F) to expand usage of its QNX software in the latter’s line of connected cars was welcome news. Many see BBRY’s focus on automotive technology as a potential profit center. Norwegian security firm, Promon, recently gave a demonstration of howTesla (NSDQ:TSLA) cars can be stolen by hackers through the company’s official android application, which many car owners use to interact with their vehicles. This was one of the latest unflattering events to take place for Tesla. But this very news can be good for Blackberry. Here’s why.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Own For 2019

There are a number of great companies in the market today. The ModernGraham valuation model selected five undervalued companies with the highest betas for value investors.

A company’s beta indicates the correlation at which its price moves in relation to the market. A beta greater than one indicates a company is more volatile than the market.

Each company has been determined to be suitable for either the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor according to the ModernGraham approach. Defensive Investors are defined as investors who are not able or willing to do substantial research into individual investments, and therefore need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk.

With a high beta, Mr. Market may turn these companies around very quickly, so be sure to check them out in depth!

    For a number of years,Casey’s General Stores (NASDAQ:CASY) investors were rewarded by the small-town convenience chain’s decision to become a major vendor of pizza and other prepared foods. But with that success has come increased competition. Combined with somewhat stagnant economies in the areas that Casey’s operates — namely, towns of less than 5,000 people in middle America — the company has had trouble meeting its own expectations. That trend continued on Monday night when Casey’s announced earnings for the third quarter of its fiscal year.

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018: Cincinnati Financial Corporation(CINF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Cincinnati Financial (CINF) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after the insurer warned of larger catastrophe losses and lower reserve releases.

    Getty Images

    Cincinnati Financialdropped 6.7% to $69.91 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 2,270.44.

    Sandler O’Neil’s Paul Newsome and team explain why Cincinnati Financial got hammered today:

    On January 12, 2017, before the market opened, CINF pre-announced 4Q16 catastrophe loss estimates and underwriting results. The company expects 4Q16 earnings to include pre-tax catastrophe losses of approximately $75 million to $85 million, representing an impact on the combined ratio of approximately 6.5 to 7.5 percentage points, based on estimated property casualty earned premiums…

    While the press release headline led with higher catastrophe losses, the real issue was less favorable reserve development related to the companys commercial casualty line.Cincinnati Financial has been growing faster than its peers for some time. The company has been growing primarily due to geographic expansion which is better than growth through price cutting. Nevertheless, growth during a soft market is difficult and the fourth quarter profit warning will likely lead to renewed concerns thatCincinnati Financial cannot maintain its excellent profitability in its commercial insurance business.

    Cincinnati Financial’s market capitalization fell to $11.5 billion today from $12.3 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $634 million on sales of $5.2 billion in 2015.
