Hot Stocks To Watch For 2018

GoPro: A Few Quick Points

Once upon a time GoPro (GPRO) was an up and coming investor favorite, being pushed to radical valuations most stocks can only dream of. However, after some bad quarters and some poor business decisions, this once-upon-a-time investor favorite has dropped from highs of nearly $87 a share to a measly $8.70 as of recent close.

Hot Stocks To Watch For 2018: Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc.(PGNX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    After meeting with the senior management team of Progenics (PGNX) , Valeant’s partner for oral Relistor, we continue to think that this drug would be a good addition to Valeant’s GI (gastrointestinal) franchise. The PDUFA date for oral Relistor is 7/19/16. AlthoughValeant is leading interactions with the FDA, Progenics is highly confident regarding an approval in July based on its discussions with Valeant. Progenics believes that oral Relistor could be a $1B+ opportunity for Valeant, even with the recent decrease in opioid usage. For context, we estimate ’16 sales of $9.9B for Valeant. An approval for oral Relistor would also help remind the Street that Valeant’s brand drug pipeline is underappreciated, in our view. We think pipeline advancements for brand drugs could drive multiple expansion forValeant shares (on P/E).

    Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PGNX) shares shot up 29 percent to $6.37 after announcing the FDA approval of RELISTOR tablets for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation in adults with chronic non-cancer pain.

Hot Stocks To Watch For 2018: Oshkosh Corporation(OSK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    Oshkosh (OSK) was downgraded to neutral from buy at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. $62 price target. The valuation is less attractive, as the stock is trading at 21x expected 2017 earnings, analysts said. 

  • [By Shanthi Rexaline]

    The six companies that met the criterion are:

    Oshkosh Corp (NYSE: OSK). Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX). SpartanNash Co (NASDAQ: SPTN). Suncor Energy Inc. (USA) (NYSE: SU). Washington Federal Inc. (NASDAQ: WAFD). Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS).
    Oshkosh

    Oshkosh is a manufacturer of specialty vehicles and vehicle bodies and is based in Wisconsin. The company operates under four business segments, namely access equipment, defense, fire and emergency, and commercial.

  • [By Rich Smith]

      I first named Oshkosh my top stock pick back in September, when the stock cost $42 and change. Since then, the stock has gone down, and sells for $3 less. So am I supposed to dislike Oshkosh stock now?

    No. To the contrary, I like it even more. (About $3 more, in fact).

    You see, even in the process of picking Oshkosh back then, I warned investors: "I don’t know whether Oshkosh will be the best-performing stock in the world in the month of September, but I’ve got a strong hunch about the next six months." And that hunch remains — because the facts have not changed.

    This past summer, Oshkosh was named the winner of the Pentagon’s contract to build a next-gen "Humvee" — an armored Joint Light Tactical Vehicle that will serve the U.S. military for decades to come. Oshkosh won an initial award to produce 17,000 vehicles for $6.7 billion. Ultimately, though, this is a contract that could swell to $30 billion or more for production, maintenance, and upgrade of approximately 55,000 JLTVs across all military branches.

    So why hasn’t Oshkosh stock moved in response to the contract? Mainly because rival bidderLockheed Martin threw a monkey wrench into the contracts process, first protesting the JLTV award to Oshkosh, and then, when that protest was rejected, filing suit in court to try to win the contract away from its rival.

    Personally, I think Lockheed Martin will lose that suit as well. After all, Lockheed’s forte is in fighter jets, while Oshkosh is the military’s premier supplier of trucks like JLTV, as well as the Army’s M-ATV vehicle (a small, all-terrain MRAP). Perhaps recognizing this, AM General, the other company that bid against Oshkosh on JLTV and lost, declined to protest the award. Lockheed took the other road, but I expect it will be a dead end for Lockheed as well.

how to invest stocks: Panera Bread Company(PNRA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In this segment fromMarket Foolery, host Chris Hill is joined by Motley Fool analystDavid Kretzmann as they break down how coffee-and-pastry focused JAB Holding Company will fit a fast casual brand into its privately held portfolio. With the acquisition, the JAB is expected to give thePanera Bread(NASDAQ:PNRA)team even more autonomy than usual.

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    Cramer wanted to talk a little psychology. With its after-hours move Tuesday, Panera Bread (PNRA) is up more than 16% this week on takeover speculation. Panera is an old Action Alerts PLUS name, one the trust sold at a nice gain, too. 

  • [By Seth McNew]

    Other companies have followed suit with great success, including PaneraBread (NASDAQ:PNRA), which has focused on improving the customer experience, including via shorter wait times. Panera 2.0 was largely successful because of the company’s focus on its digital strategy and Chipotle looks to be doing the same thing.

    Keurigs plight (actually, JABs) is worsening, with the K-cup market slowing to almost no growth now, and Keurig continuing to lose own brands share. Starbucks (SBUX) echoed the notion of a K-cup market slowdown at its seminar on Wednesday (and is guiding for its [consumer packaged goods, or CPG,] growth below recent trends), but it expects to increase its share of total CPG coffee to 20% from 15%. Come early February it will be a year since the closing of the Keurig deal for JAB Holdings. The pressure on JAB is more significant if we take into account the high leverage of the deal (JAB contributed one fourth of the $12Bn price tag). It is a tough predicament. On the one hand we argue that to make that deal work, they need to buy more (own) brands either from the retail channel (that can be extended to CPG: Dunkin (DNKN)? Panera (PNRA)?), or outright buy CPG brands (like the entire Kraft Heinz portfolio, and or Tata Groups Eight OClock brand). But can/how do they fund these deals? Maybe Mars and Warren Buffett (Mars is involved in office coffee with Starbucks), private equity, and or 3G can help? While this note is not about Positive-rated Mondelez, we have mentioned before a scenario where Kraft Heinz buys Mondelez and partly funds the deal by selling its own CPG coffee business (~$3Bn we say) to JAB as well as divests the Mondelez 20% plus stakes in Keurig (North America) and Jacobs Douwe Egberts (Western Europe), which together at this stage are worth ~$7-8Bn. But, yes, JAB will need deep-pocket partners and generous lenders. Net, JAB needs to do something soon.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Shares of Panera Bread Co (NASDAQ: PNRA) got a boost, shooting up 14 percent to $312.29 after the company agreed to be acquired by JAB for $7.5 billion.

how to invest stocks: NEW GOLD INC.(NGD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Bill Gross reveals that he did not vote for either “establishment party’s candidate” in the Nov. 8 presidential election, and so in his monthly investment outlook for Janus he writes he was “amazed [with] almost amused bewilderment” of the “extraordinary fury” of the American populist electorate who “‘unwittingly’ (lack of wit)” let “the Trumpian Fox” enter the “Populist Henhouse.”

Donald Trump’s tenure as president, Gross writes, “will be a short four years but is likely to be a damaging one for jobless and low-wage American voters.” Why? Because of “Middle America’s misinterpretation of what will make America great again.” While Trump was apparently successful at luring voters with his promise of more jobs, Gross argues that the promised Trump policies of heavy spending on infrastructure improvements and defense “combined with lower corporate taxes to invigorate the private sector continue to favor capital versus labor, markets versus wages, and is a continuation of the status quo.”

    T-Mobile is a significant player in the US mobile telecommunications space. It is the third largest by subscribers, with 72 million customers as of early 2017. When analysts compare T-Mobile, they often compare them to the likes of Sprint, Verizon Communications, Inc. (NYSE: VZ) and AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T). This makes sense considering they offer very similar services but what is not similar is their underlying growth profiles as illustrated below.

    The S&P 500 stock posting the largest daily percentage loss ahead of the close Thursday was AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) which traded down over 6% at $35.85. The stocks 52-week range is $35.10 to $43.03. Volume was nearly 117 million versus the daily average of 24.3 million shares.

    AT&T INC’s earnings per share declined by 16.7% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past year. However, we anticipate this trend reversing over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, AT&T INC reported lower earnings of $1.23 versus $3.41 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.71 versus $1.23).

    Healthcare REIT HCP, Inc. (NYSE:HCP) had an eventful 2016. The year started off quite turbulent, with dismal results from the company’s HCR ManorCare properties leading to a surprise loss, but recovered nicely as the company decided to spin off those and other troubled assets. What could be in store for HCP investors in the coming decade?

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    One smart way to capitalize on this trend over the next few decades is with a healthcare REIT like HCP (NYSE:HCP), which specializes in private-pay senior housing, medical office, and life science properties.

This is a guest contribution from The Financial Canadian

It is rare to find an investment that is both relatively safe and offers tremendous upside potential.

What if I told you that there was a smaller Canadian version of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B) that has both of these characteristics?

The company I’m talking about is Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. (OTCPK:FRFHF) It is a diversified insurance provider with a significant portfolio of common stock investments.

This post will examine the investment prospects of Fairfax in detail.

FFH – Business Overview

Fairfax (TSE:FFH) is a diversified insurance company with headquarters in Toronto, Canada. The present management has been in control of Fairfax since September of 1985.

Fairfax’s operations are divided into two segments: insurance and investment management.

Its insurance operations include a variety of wholly-owned subsidiaries that are operated on a decentralized basis. Many of these wholly-owned subsidiaries are large in their own right, including Northbridge, Odyssey Re, Crum & Forster, Zenith National, and Brit Insurance (the newest addition to the Fairfax family).

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Barron’s recommended investors take their profits on U.S. Steel (X) back in December, and the stock has moved sideways since then. Today’s earnings report doesn’t look to have moved the needle one way of the other.

    Getty Images

    U.S. Steel reported an adjusted profit of 26 cents, well above forecasts for a cent, on sales of $2.65 billion, essentially inline. It also offered an upbeat outlook. JPMorgan’s Michael Gambardella and team offer their take:

    U.S. Steel reported a 4Q16 beat. Flat Rolled performed in-line with our expectations, while USSE results exceeded our estimates due to higher shipments and lower costs.U.S. Steel disclosed that its coal cost is expected to increase by only $19/ton in 2017 compared to 2016, which is a much smaller increase than we believe the market was expecting. If current market conditions hold,U.S. Steel expects 2017 EBITDA to be $1.3bn compared to 2016 EBITDA of $510mm and current consensus estimate of $1.18bn.

    Shares of U.S. Steel had gained as much as 3.9% this morning, but has advanced just 0.2% to $32.76 at 10:23 a.m. today.

    The stock market finished in the red Wednesday, with very modest losses in most major benchmarks. Even the release of a broad outline of the Trump administration’s tax reform plan wasn’t enough to spur too much excitement among investors, as some worry that the plan’s focus on corporate taxes and balanced approach toward individual income tax reform might not resonate with the bulk of the American public. Moreover, bad news from some sectors of the market helped to dampen excitement from earlier in the week, and U.S. Steel (NYSE:X), Seagate Technology (NASDAQ:STX), and Dr Pepper Snapple Group (NYSE:DPS) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    While United States Steel Corp.

If Trump has been vocal about anything consistently, it has been his intention to slap tariffs on Chinese imports, with specific emphasis on Chinese steel dumping which he thinks hurts America, even though Americans are the ones choosing to buy it freely.
