Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

What happened

Shares of Foot Locker Inc. (NYSE:FL) were up 13.5% as of 11:00 a.m. EDT Friday after the footwear retailer announced better-than-expected fiscal first-quarter 2018 results.

That’s not to say Foot Locker’s performance looked encouraging at first glance. Quarterly revenue increased 1.2% year over year to $2.025 billion, as a 2.8% decline in comparable-store sales was more than offset by favorable foreign exchange rates. On the bottom line, that translated to net income of $165 million, or $1.38 per share, compared to $180 million, or $1.36 per share in the same year-ago period.

Still, analysts’ consensus estimates predicted lower earnings of $1.25 per share on revenue of $1.96 billion.

So what

“The flow of premium product continues to improve, with increasing breadth and depth in the most sought after styles from our key vendors,” said Foot Locker Chairman and CEO Richard Johnson. “This led to first quarter results which were above our expectations.”

Now Nucor is shifting gears and working to fine-tune the profile of its business from within.

    The Trump administration is considering a 25% tariff on up to $200 billion in Chinese goods.

Also hurting the overall market were some disturbing developments regarding some key companies.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (FBHS) seems to be a slightly undervalued player in the home improvement segment that has astutely chosen to work with market leaders Home Depot (HD) and Lowes (LOW) instead of compete with them head-on. Market conditions being favorable to the giants in the segment, that effect is expected to cascade down to Fortunes product lines as well. Valuation analyses show that the stock is trading slightly below intrinsic value after the January dip that also hit HD and LOW, which means some margin of safety for investors looking to get in now. Lets look at the companys market distribution, growth, acquisition and fiscal strategies and balance sheet strength to see if the company possesses enough firepower to leverage the markets growth expectations for the next several years.

Fortune Brands is a leading home and security products company with products addressing niche segments within the home improvement market. The company operates four business segments: cabinets, plumbing, doors and security.

The semiconductor packaging equipment specialist is valued at just $1.65 billion, and it recorded just $809 million of revenue last year. That’s a much smaller number than those posted by semiconductor equipment giants like Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT), KLA-Tencor (NASDAQ:KLAC), and Lam Research (NASDAQ:LRCX).

    Just as promised on its first-quarter earnings call,General Electric Company (NYSE:GE)has announced a deal to exit its transportation business as part of a wider plan to unload $20 billion worth of assets. The deal to merge GE transportation withWestinghouse Air Brake Technologies(NYSE:WAB), or Wabtec, is somewhat complicated, but in general can be seen as a near-term positive for shareholders. However, it will do little to appease dyed-in-the-wool bears worried about the sustainability of the company’s dividend and restructuring prospects. Let’s take a look at both sides of the story.

    On a more positive note, Flannery appears to be making ground on some key long-term objectives.

    Management feels “good” about the ability of the healthcare segment to outperform, according to Miller. Flannery claimed GE was in “active discussions” on some aviation platforms, current & lighting and distributed power, while an announcement on the divestment of transportation (rumored to be a target of Wabtec (NYSE:WAB)) is expected by the end of the second quarter. Structural cost reductions are now expected to be above the $2 billion target outlined on the investor day presentation in November 2017. Flannery outlined that he would lead the creation of a new operating system for GE based on “lean, six sigma ad agile” involving “continuous improvement and customer experience.”

    As a reminder, GE has promised $20 billion of asset sales, and the commentary on the earnings call was reassuring, particularly as the first deal (healthcare IT assets) was underwhelming.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    As part of its announcement on Tuesday, GE stated that its previous plan to divest about $20 billion of assets is “substantially complete.” Indeed, the company is set to receive $9.8 billion of cash proceeds over the next 12 months from four major asset sales, along with approximately $1.9 billion of Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies (NYSE:WAB) stock. GE shareholders will receive an additional $7.6 billion of Wabtec stock as part of the sale of the company’s freight locomotive business. The GE Lighting division is the last major asset up for sale under this plan.

Dollar General (DG) marked its 27th consecutive year of same-store sales growth in fiscal 2016. It followed this milestone up with a beat on both the top and bottom lines during its first quarter of 2017, with comps once again growing – but by only about 0.7%. As I was sifting through the retail carnage, Dollar General was one of the companies that stood out as above average, so I decided to take a closer look with this article.

The business

The company’s primary niche seems to come from its low cost operating structure. The majority of its stores are rural, with roughly 70% of them located in towns of 20,000 people or less. It constantly seeks ways to reduce (or at least control) costs that won’t affect the shopping experience for its customers, many of whom are primarily in a lower income bracket. This is exhibited by its low prices, where 80% of its stock-keeping units are set at $5 or less.

    Signet Jewelersdropped 13% to $63.59 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.3% to 2,363.64.

    The Washington Post broke the news last night, which caused Signet’s stock to tumble more than 8% before it was halted. Signet’s stock continued to fall after it released a statement pointing out that the class action didn’t involve sexual harassment, just whether women were paid less than men or passed over for promotions, as if that should make us feel better. Then it concluded by noting that it had “thoroughly investigated the allegations and have concluded they are not substantiated by the facts and certainly do not reflect our culture.” Because self-investigating always works.

    Signet Jewelers’ market capitalization fell to $4.4 billion today from $5.1 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $468 million on sales of $6.6 billion in 2016.

In a short period of time readers and I have been pleasantly surprised by the outperformance of this model portfolio.

While the fund takes a “go anywhere” approach, lately the opportunities we’ve been seeing are in biotech companies that are undervalued relative to their future prospects, with catalysts on the way that could result in near to medium term share price appreciation.

In hindsight, it wasn’t great timing when I started the fund near the beginning of correction in biotech. However, when it comes to the markets in general I don’t try to predict future movement- instead I look for price action, money flow, and the fundamental story on individual stocks I take positions in.
