Top Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018

The Q4 2016 earnings report for prepaid debit card stock Green Dot Corporation (NYSE: GDOT) is scheduled for after the market closesWednesday (February 22nd).Green Dot Corporation wasin our SmallCap Network Elite Opportunity (SCN EO) portfolio back in 2014 based on the stocks share pricebeing undervalued at the time as well as generating excellent cash flow compared to itsmarket cap and for potentially being an attractive acquisition target. A June 2014 SCN EO newsletter pointed out:

Although the Company may not be one used by the wealthier masses, there’s no denying there’s a very large demographic here in the U.S. who not only wants services offered by the Company but more importantly, needs the services offered by the Company. The best comparison is that of the pre-paid cell phone services offered by many smaller companies competing with the likes of AT&T and Verizon. I make this comp. analogy because it’s been many of those smaller pre-paid calling card and cell phone service companies that continue to be acquired of late by the larger telecoms out their looking to gain more market share and achieve higher growth when they’ve already got just about the rest of the country on board.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018: Advance Auto Parts Inc(AAP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Advance Auto Parts (AAP) surged to the top of the S&P 500 today after releasing better-than-expected third-quarter earnings.

    Getty Images

    Shares of Advance Auto Parts gained 15% to $164.33, while the S&P 500 rose 0.8% to 2,180.39.

    Credit Suisse analyst Seth Sigman and team explain why shares of Advance Auto Parts are soaring:

    Advance Auto Parts’ Q3 and strategic update was one of the better scenarios for this stock with better than expected comps, positive commentary on Q4, a roughly in line 2017 outlook, and a new sense of direction on how this new management team will narrow the margin gap with peers. Management guided to a 500 bps long-term margin improvement, which wasnt a surprise to investors, and other specifics were still limited. However, timed with Q3/4′s improvement, this should help instill some early confidence in this team. We are adjusting our 2016 and 2017 EPS modestly, to $7.30 (from $7.23) and to $7.65 (from $7.60) respectively.

    Advance Auto Parts market capitalization rose to $12.1 billion today from $10.7 billion yesterday.

Hot Safest Stocks To Invest In 2018

Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is bubbling, and one important lesson is that bubbles burst. A counter point is bubbles persist and you do not necessarily want to short the stock because you may be caught up in a short squeeze. I believe it is a great time to take profits in NFLX. My recommendation is to sell some of your stock holdings to preserve capital and/or take some profits. Strike while the iron is hot! Remember bulls make money, bears make money, hogs get slaughtered. In this article, we will explore 5 great reasons why it is a good time to take profits now, and I will also show you some trading risk management techniques to play for more upside with less risk.

Unlike traditional recommendations of: 1) buy, 2) hold, or 3) sell, which is all or nothing, I do not agree that everything is black or white. There are shades of grey. In addition, traditional recommendations only tell you what to buy and what to sell. I have a different spin with my 7 degrees of financial freedom recommendations, which tell you what to buy, what to sell and how to manage your positions. It suggests both what and how. The following table summarizes my recommendations:

Hot Safest Stocks To Invest In 2018: Viva Entertainment Group (OTTV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    How does the old saying go? The enemy of my enemy is my friend? Not that there was ever any animosity among the players in the arena, but there’s no denying that two heads — two experienced heads — are better than one for any organization that’s trying to beat Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) at its own game. That’s why Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) CEO Johnny Falcones wanted Thomas Ashley, founder of competing over-the-top television venue FlixFling, on the OTTV Board of Directors… he knows exactly what Viva Entertainment Group is trying to do, and he knows a thing or two about how to do it.

    The product is called Viva Middleware, which in simplest terms is a turn-key technology that allows anyone to get into the over-the-top (OTT) business with their own customized over-the-top television service. Live broadcasts, on-demand, music channels and original programming are all possible. This means they can customize the product locally or regionally, or thematically, like an all-sports or an all sci-fi venue. The possibilities are endless, which is in stark contrast to Netflix’s “what you get is what you get” approach.

    The product is technically still in beta mode, though it is ready for “prime time,” so to speak. On December 13th, at the Riviera Hotel in South Beach Miami, OTTV will be hosting a launch party to debut its Viva OTT platform. Not only will the event give guests a chance to see and use the over-the-top television platform, they’ll be dazzled by performances by Soleil J and Jorge Moreno.

    That said, it’s important to note that Viva Entertainment Group already has clients. In August the company announced it was entering a joint venture with Oi2 Media to create an OTT product catering to a specific segment of the nation’s demographic.

    Oi2 Media is the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content, offering both music and television. It’s not just a Netflix-like service Oi2 and Viva will

    The phrase “over the top television” – or its acronym “OTT” – aren’t necessarily newly-coined ones. The phrase/abbreviation materialized shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television services less than a decade ago. The over-the-top race didn’t really heat up, however, until the past few months. Once it did heat up though, sparks started to fly in earnest.

    They’re still flying too, and will be for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to say about it. Netflix, Hulu [jointly owned by Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA)] and all the rest of the relatively new players in this space may want to look over their shoulder. In the meantime, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT industry is going to be made during the next 10 years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the totally dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. It was admittedly the first on the scene, and therefore was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market (which it still holds to this day). It’s largely become a commoditized business though.

    Case in point? Aside from Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the game with its product called CBS All Access. The service allows subscribers, for a nominal monthly fee, to access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found respectable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), has really broken new ground in the over the top market by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that package at a rate that’s much less than what it would cost a cable subscriber

    Everything that Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) was offering via its app as of yesterday just got expanded today. Per this morning’s press release, all the digital content from FlixFling is going to be available on the Viva over-the-top television (and music) streaming platform.

    The product is called Viva Middleware. The software/platform allows anyone to get into the over-the-top television business like Netflix and Hulu already are. Telecom service providers, media websites, universities, and pretty much anyone else can custom-build their own IPTV service, and collect subscription fees and/or ad revenue for doing so. Viva does all the back-end work, while the seller collects the customers.

    The trick is simply filling the pipeline with content, and at the same time, convincing customers that there’s enough quality content at the source to become a paying subscriber. And in this case, the fact that the app works on any operating system or any device is a key selling feature.

    Viva Entertainment Group has already been curating content for a while now, and has a nice library including a huge number of radio stations. That content took a huge leap forward today, however, with FlixFling being added to the mix.

    If it rings a bell for OTTV shareholders, it should. FlixFling is streaming media company started by Thomas Ashley, who just so happened to join the OTTV Board of Directors last week.

    FlixFling is an online video-on-demand content provider specializing in new, previously released and classic movies from most major studios. Customers can watch thousands of movie selections on an easy, flexible interface from your favorite devices or connected TV. FlixFling brings a new and exciting movie content viewing experience to customers who can’t find what they want through other online video rental sites; FlixFling has access to new releases quicker than Hulu or Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).

    It’s almost here. Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) is about to unveil its long-awaited over-the-top (OTT) television platform that’s poised to disrupt the entire television industry even more than it’s already been up-ended.

    And it’s going to debut that technology in style. On December 13th, at the Riviera Hotel in South Beach Miami, OTTV will be hosting a launch party to debut its Viva OTT platform. Not only will the event give guests a chance to see and use the over-the-top television platform, they’ll be dazzled by performances by Soleil J and Jorge Moreno.

    Oi2 Media is the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content, offering both music and television. It’s not just a Netflix-like service Oi2 and Viva will be providing, however. The Viva platform can serve as a robust alternative to cable television service, much of which is delivered in English and is therefore unusable to much of the Latino/Hispanic community.

    It’s no small market either. Portada recently estimated that the Hispanic online-video ad market alone would be worth $425 million by 2020, pointing to the greater segmentation of the video market now that advancements in technology have made it possible. A

    Don’t look for any news to explain the big 73% surge Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) dished out on Monday – you won’t find it, because there wasn’t any. Rather, OTTV shares popped all on their own.

    The knee-jerk reaction may be to presume OTTV stock is destined to roll back just as quickly as the rally materialized. And, that may well be what’s in the cards. Before looking past Viva Entertainment Group as an investment opportunity that’s dead money until further notice though, Monday’s mostly-overlooked action may be a huge bullish clue.

    For the unfamiliar, the company’s product is called Viva Middleware. The software/platform allows anyone to get into the over-the-top television business like Netflix and Hulu already are. Telecom service providers, media websites, universities, and pretty much anyone else can custom-build their own IPTV service, and collect subscription fees and/or ad revenue for doing so. Viva does all the back-end work, while the seller collects the customers.

    The trick is simply filling the pipeline with content, and at the same time, convincing customers that there’s enough quality content at the source to become a paying subscriber. And in this case, the fact that the app works on any operating system or any device is a key selling feature.

    Viva Entertainment Group has already been curating content for a while now, and has a nice library including a huge number of radio stations.

    The stock, though, hasn’t exactly been rewarding even though the company’s back-story has been compelling. That paradigm shift may have changed on Monday.

    Take a look. Out of nowhere, a ton of volume materialized on Monday… most of it bullish. There’s still a ton of ground left to make up, to be sure, but this is interesting. There was far more buying than selling on Monday, on HUGE volume. Why the sudden interest in buying a beaten-down OTTV? That’s the point. For one reason or another, the mood/rheto

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    If Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) seems a little perkier than usual today, you’re not imagining things – it is. At first glance it would be easy to conclude it was yesterday afternoon’s news that prodded OTTV a bit, and maybe that’s got something to do with it. More than anything though, the extra spring in the stock’s step most likely has to do with the fact that the company is hosting a pre-launch party this evening, and traders are (understandably) thinking tomorrow could be a very big day for Viva Entertainment Group shares.

    If it vaguely rings a bell, that may be because the company announced the event back in mid-November, mentioning there would be special performances by Grammy Award winner Jorge Moreno, and SMG/SONY RED recording artist Soleil J. Guests would also be able to try out the over-the-top television service Viva has built right at the party. Once those attendees see first-hand what a game-changer the platform could be, odds are good they’ll want to invest the next chance they get. That would be Wednesday morning. Waiting until then, however, could be too late, so savvy traders are trickling in now.

    As a refresher, Viva Middleware is a turn-key technology that allows anyone to get into the OTT business with their own customized over-the-top television service. Live broadcasts, on-demand, music channels and original programming are all possible. This means they can customize the product locally or regionally, or thematically, like an all-sports or an all sci-fi venue. The possibilities are endless, which is in stark contrast to Netflix’s “what you get is what you get” approach.

    Viva Entertainment Group has been putting the pieces of the puzzle together all year long…. technology, personnel, clients, content.

    The latest of the personnel additions was announced on Monday -Mr. Rory Conaway is now on the OTTV Board of Directors.

    It’s a nice pickup. Rory Conaway has been in the IT and Wireless I

More details emerged about the proposed initial public offering (IPO) of shares in the world’s largest company, the state oil giant Saudi Aramco, following comments Saudi oil ministry advisor Ibrahim Muhanna made to the Wall Street Journal. The company will likely float around 5% of its shares, Muhanna said, and the listing may come within the next year.

Company History

Saudi Aramco, officially the Saudi Arabian Oil Company, began as a Saudi-American joint enterprise in the 1930s. The Saudi government began building up a stake in the 1973, following the Yom Kippur War, and took full control in 1980. The company is the largest in the world by a significant margin, though the exact size is unknown. Reporting Muhanna’s comments, the WSJ cited a “conservative number” of $2.5 trillion, but the paper has put forward a high estimate of $10 trillion in the past.

    Shares of CVR Refining LP (NYSE: CVRR) were down 11 percent to $10.00. Velocity Midstream Partners and CVR Refining disclosed the execution of agreements related to the construction of a crude oil pipeline from the SCOOP play in Central Oklahoma to CVR's Wynnewood refinery.

    For refiners, though, that spread in price led to very lucrative refining margins. As that spread has narrowed, so too has margins for refiners.

otc stocks: Critical Elements Corporation (CRECF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    ILC reminds me of Critical Elements [TSXV:CRE] (OTCQX:CRECF) having five projects (CRE has 11), and also of Galaxy Resources (ASX:GXY) (OTCPK:GALXF) by being diversified across brine and spodumene and across three continents. Also some similarity with Neo Lithium’s (OTC:NTTHF) [TSXV:NLC] early stage Argentinean brine project which I recently wrote about here. However, ILC trades at a much smaller market cap of US$8m to that of Critical Elements (US$85m) or Galaxy Resources (US$724m). This is partly due to ILC giving away significant percentages of their projects, and because they are still in the early stages of development.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

Amaya’s stock has been on a wild roller coaster ride this year, with catalysts ranging from the CEO (David Baazov) being accused of insider trading, to takeover rumors, to failed mergers and now a formal bid by the aforementioned CEO. There have certainly been a lot of hopes and headaches, but I believe there is a strong underlining long case to be made on Amaya. I wrote a blog post about it the day before it released its Q3 earnings, my basic argument was that it is intrinsically undervalued due to market overreaction on merger discussions and there was still the possibility of a buyout by the former CEO at a significant upside. It seemed like a win-win. Well, when the earnings were released, not only were the results impressive but Baazov launched a formal bid at C$24 per share (approximately US$18) or a 30% upside from the previous Friday’s Close. Whether this private takeover succeeds or not, this stock is poised for significant long term growth.

Amaya (NASDAQ:AYA) runs the world’s largest online gaming (casino) empire in the world. It runs many valuable brand names especially in the online poker business (PokerStars and Fulltilt) but is now increasingly moving into sports betting and other online casino games. It is also the fastest growing and most well positioned to take advantage of online gambling legalization as well as the inherent scalability of the internet. This is a company which has seen its revenues increase from below US$200M just a few years ago to over US$1.2 BILLION for the trailing twelve months. Reviewing its results and its future growth prospects, it will be clear that this firm is undervalued.

    Wednesday was yet another record-setting day for the stock market, as the Dow climbed triple digits and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite followed the venerable average to unprecedented heights. Economic data showing rising inflation made it more likely that the Federal Reserve will look to boost interest rates at its next Federal Open Market Committee meeting next month, and the ripples throughout the bond market sent many investors to consider stocks instead. Yet despite the substantial rally, some stocks missed out on the move higher, and American International Group (NYSE:AIG), Teck Resources (NYSE:TECK), and Movado Group (NYSE:MOV) 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.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday began on a down note for the stock market, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell back down below the 20,000 level. Major market benchmarks finished with losses of 0.6% to 0.8%, and some market commentators attributed the declines to nervousness about the Trump administration’s actions to clamp down on immigration. Others noted that the latest reading of U.S. economic growth showed a 1.9% rise in gross domestic product for the fourth quarter, finishing the year with an overall GDP increase of just 1.6%, down a full percentage point from 2015’s growth. Despite the overall sullen mood in the market, some stocks gained ground, and GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Movado Group (NYSE:MOV), and IPG Photonics (NASDAQ:IPGP) were among the best performers on the day.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now: Ford Motor Company(F)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Yesterday, I dubbed the selloff in auto stocks “car-pocalypse now,” as shares of everything car related tumbled following disappointing auto sales. Shares of General Motors (GM) and Ford Motor (F)? Check. Auto-part makers like BorgWarner (BWA)? Check. Used-car sellers like AutoNation (AN) and CarMax (KMX)? Check. Auto-part retailers like O’Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and AutoZone (AZO)? Oh yeah. So is it time to panic?

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Ford Motor (F) reported its fourth-quarter earnings today, and the reaction today was very similar to the one in October, when it released its third-quarter earnings.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Not that the earnings were necessarily similar. Ford reported an adjusted fourth-quarter profit of 30 cents a share today–missing forecasts for 31 cents–on sales of $38.7 billion, and its shares have dropped 3.2% to $12.39 at 2:55 p.m. today. In October, Ford dropped 1.2% after beating earnings forecasts.

    MarketWatch’s Tomi Kilgore calls Ford’s earnings “one of the most unclear reports so far this earnings season.” He explains why:

    The automaker didn’t provide a year-ago number for earnings (or loss) per share, flipped the financial table to show prior-year results first and only provided a link on their press release to direct investors to their website to see the results….The commentary provided by Chief Executive Mark Fields and Chief Financial Officer Bob Shanks was only about the full-year performance, which showed the company swinging to a profit from 2015, with no mention of the $800 million loss recorded in the fourth quarter.

    CFRA Research’s Efraim Levy remains a buyer:

    We raise our 12-month target price by $1 to $14. This is 8.6X our ’17 EPS forecast of $1.62 (cut by $0.08) reflecting peer and historical P/E analysis. We factor in our projection for U.S. sales volume plateauing below ’16′s peak, but see global growth, including in the important China market. We set an ’18 estimate at $1.73. We see investments in mobility and other projects as a key driver for lower profits in ’17. F posts Q4 adjusted EPS of $0.30 of $0.58, $0.02 below the Capital IQ consensus, despite stronger than expected revenues.

    Of course he does.

They explain why:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Spirit Airlines(NASDAQ:SAVE)has one of the lowest cost structures in the airline industry, but that doesn’t mean that the carrier is immune to the pressures its fellow airlines are facing. For example, over the last two years, Spirit’s labor costs have climbed 4 percentage points, to 20% of total revenue. This is partly due to expanded pilot and crew hiring to accommodate increased capacity, but it also stems from higher wage incentives paid due to collective bargaining agreements.

    Income investors appreciate stocks that pay lucrative dividends, and recently, many companies have seen the value in treating shareholders well by boosting their regular payouts.

SYSCO Corporation (NYSE: SYY) and US Foods Holding Corp (NYSE: USFD) are likely safe as Amazon won’t move into the foodservice distribution space which is very different from serving individual customers.
