Best Value Stocks To Own Right Now: QuinStreet, Inc.(QNST)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The mood was negative on Wall Street on Wednesday, and most major benchmarks finished in the red. Strength in the technology sector wasn’t enough to lift more cyclically focused benchmarks like the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the combination of an attack on Saudi Arabia that sent oil prices higher and some disquieting readings on the inflation front kept investors from feeling more confident about stocks going into earnings season. In addition, some individual companies had bad news that sent their shares lower. Analogic (NASDAQ:ALOG), QuinStreet (NASDAQ:QNST), and MSC Industrial Direct (NYSE:MSM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    QuinStreet Inc (NASDAQ:QNST) has been given a consensus rating of “Buy” by the nine brokerages that are currently covering the company, MarketBeat.com reports.

The average 1-year price target among brokerages that have issued ratings on the stock in the last year is $17.29.

Move tracked a user’s location, recorded different movements (like walking, running, and cycling) between locations, and logged the number of steps taken. The app had scored about 40 million downloads at the time of Facebook’s buyout.

    With the mixed signals coming out of OPEC, oil prices could be quite volatile until the organization makes it clear what it intends to do. That could have an effect on financially weaker oil companies that desperately need higher oil prices to provide them with extra cash to firm up their financial foundations. Stronger producers, on the other hand, should continue to do well no matter what OPEC decides since they built their businesses to thrive at much lower oil prices. Three that stand out are ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), and EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG).

    Leading U.S. shale driller EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) is one of many that would benefit from a hike in the price of WTI. The company based its budget on WTI averaging $50 a barrel this year, which would enable it to generate enough money to invest about $5.6 billion into drilling new wells so that it could increase its U.S. oil output 16% to 20%. Also, at that price point, EOG could bolster its dividend by 10% from last year’s level and still produce a little bit of free cash to pay down debt. Anything over that level would be gravy, with EOG estimating that it would generate as much as $1.5 billion in free cash at $60 WTI. That number would be even higher if WTI heads toward $75 a barrel due to the issues at Syncrude, which could enable the company to achieve its debt reduction targeteven faster.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2018

Stifel’s Annabel Samimy and team argue that Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (VRX) is “turning a corner,” at least when it comes to perception. They explain:

christinne muschi/Reuters

After reaching crisis of confidence levels following 4Q15 earnings, developments of the last several days seem to indicate that Valeant is turning a corner. The most concerning risk factors have been alleviated: 1) no additional accounting misstatements were found following completion of the internal ad hoc review, 2) Valeant committed to filing its 10-K by 4/29/16, and 3) creditors and bondholders agreed to extend or waive technical covenants related to reporting deadlines. At this time, its worth reminding investors of the significant brand value of its multiple franchises, as well as the steady demand of its key products to date. Our initial Sum of the Parts analysis derived an equity value of $65/share, but a deeper SOTP can yield up to $90-95/share in equity value, confirming again that current levels do not accurately reflect this asset value. With liquidity to satisfy debt obligations, obviating the need for forced asset sales, we do not believe Valeant should not be trading at distressed levels.

    Zogenix, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZGNX) was down, falling around 11 percent to $34.75 after the company disclosed new efficacy and safety data from its pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial of ZX008 in Dravet syndrome.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    The other concern is that while it may be the first to market in treating Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, another experimental therapy is nipping at its heels. In September, Zogenix (NASDAQ:ZGNX) announced surprisingly strong phase 3 data for ZX008, a low-dose fenfluramine that absolutely blew away the placebo in Dravet syndrome patient testing. Zogenix’s lead compound led to a 72.4% reduction in convulsive seizure frequency over a 14-week period, compared to the 17.4% reduction for placebo patients.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2018: Pinnacle Entertainment Inc.(PNK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK) has gained 56% this year; Las Vegas Sands (LVS) has climbed 38%. And Deutsche Bank has nice things to say about both today.

    Bloomberg

    First Pinnacle. Deutsche Bank’s Carlo Santarelli ponders the stock’s big move and comes away still seeing value in its shares. He writes:

    When we upgraded PNK in April, our thesis centered on the FCF strength of the combined entities [Pinnacle completed its acquisition of Ameristar Casinos on Aug. 14], a handful of favorable catalysts, easing regional gaming comps, & an inexpensive relative valuation. Given the shares’ sizeable move since then, we believe it is worth revisiting the investment case. Post the announcement of several asset sales and the closing of the transaction, we are adjusting our estimates, raising our PT to $30 from $24, and maintaining our bullish view at current levels given what we still believe to be an attractive free cash flow valuation, meaningful potential synergy realization beyond the $40 mm of announced benefits, and a free option on a lagging regional recovery.

    Santarelli also revisited Las Vegas Sands and there too, he likes what he sees. He writes:

    With…LVS at [a share price level] that have been challenging to break from over the last year plus, we believe this time is different and hence we see continued upward momentum…In the case of LVS, we see; 1) meaningful mass market strength continuing through year end, setting the stage for upward company and market estimate revisions for 2014, 2) continued cash flow appreciation and capital returns serving as downside protection and positive catalysts, and 3) continued shared gains, largely driven by table optimization and mass market strength, driving both estimates and sentiment.

    He also likes Wynn Resorts (WYNN), despite its 34% gain.Santarelli writes:

    As for WYNN, we believe near-term estimates continue to take a back seat to capital return

Top Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019

According to a Gallup poll, less than a third of Americans have long-term financial plans, which is concerning. Failing to consider critical factors could lead to not saving enough money and watching the well run dry during your golden years.

There are plenty of big questions to ask yourself when planning for retirement, such as what age you plan to retire at and how much you’ll be earning in Social Security benefits. But there are also less obvious factors to consider as well, and making these mistakes can have a serious impact on your retirement.

1. Forgetting about inflation

It’s hard enough to create a budget for the next 30 days, so of course figuring out how much you’ll need during retirement 30 years in advance may seem like an impossible task. It doesn’t stop there, though inflation can further complicate things.

The U.S. inflation rate typically hovers around 2% to 3% per year, That may not seem like much, but when you consider how many years you have until retirement and how many years you’ll spend in retirement, it adds up. For example, say you’re 40 years old and have $50,000 saved for retirement. By the time you turn 65, assuming an inflation rate of 2% per year, that $50,000 will only be worth around $30,476. Once you turn 80, that $50,000 will be worth approximately $22,644.

Top Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019: Extra Space Storage Inc(EXR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    The final REIT type I like right now is self-storage, particularly Extra Space Storage (NYSE:EXR).

    First, I should mention that this could prove to be the most volatile company on the list. Self-storage isn’t as defensive as retail or healthcare simply because of its lease structure. Generally, you don’t sign a multi-year lease on a storage unit — you just pay each month that you want to keep it. This makes it easier for tenants to vacate the properties during tough times.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Extra Space Storage Inc. (NYSE: EXR) was raised to Buy from Neutral at Merrill Lynch.
