Top 10 Growth Stocks To Invest In Right Now

U.S. Concrete (USCR) is situated in the top position of each major market where they supply Ready-Mix and Aggregate concrete supplies. USCR currently services the fastest growing residential, commercial, and infrastructural real estate markets in the U.S. They provide their patented quick drying and eco-friendly mix of concrete to markets such as New York City, Dallas-Fort Worth, and the San Francisco Bay area. U.S. Concrete has agreed to contracts with high-margin commercial companies such as Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), FaceBook (NASDAQ:FB), and Toyota (NYSE:TM), as well as LaGuardia International Airport. Their current strategy of organic and acquisition growth, combined with their high-profile project outlay, shows that USCR has positioned itself for major growth as 2018 approaches. Using my pro forma valuation, the one-year price target is just under $105.

Recent Earnings Performance

U.S. Concrete currently sits slightly above the trends of the Construction Materials and Products Sector Index. However, that does not tell the whole story. I am not suggesting that readers buy the index; rather, I’m suggesting a buy that, within the year, will outperform the index significantly. Despite a dip in Q3 performance due to two major acquisitions, inclement weather, and the effects of three major Hurricanes, USCR was able to increase consolidated revenue 7.9% year over year, to $354.6M. Total revenue increased 18% to $1.313B, and the total adjusted EBITDA increased 1.3% to $54.7M.

    But although Neiman Marcus delivered its fourth consecutive quarterly comp sales gain, its growth rate is slowing again. Meanwhile, profitability remained weak in fiscal 2018 — and the company needs to continue investing heavily to keep up with better-funded rivals, such as Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) and Hudson’s Bay’s (NASDAQOTH:HBAYF) Saks Fifth Avenue chain. That will make it hard for Neiman Marcus’ private equity owners to exit their ill-advised investment.
