Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

This is part of a series of stories that comprise TheStreet’s Blue Chip Studio, which will illuminate issues related to corporate board performance, activism, dealmakers and personalities revealed by analysis of data generated by BoardEx, a business unit of TheStreet.

BlackRock (BLK), the world’s largest asset manager, said it will be putting pressure on companies to address boardroom diversity as part of a series of initiatives for 2017-2018 that the company’s 30-member Investment Stewardship team will discuss with portfolio companies.

The New York-based firm, with $5.1 trillion under management, said board composition, effectiveness, and accountability remain a top priority, and that it plans to engage companies in a constructive manner.

“More specifically, over the coming year, we will engage companies to better understand their progress on improving gender balance in the boardroom,” the firm said on its website on Monday. “Diverse boards, including but not limited to diversity of expertise, experience, age, race and gender, make better decisions.”

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now: Emerson Electric Company(EMR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Lower WACC has moved in lockstep with higher multiples and as the rate regime shifts, we see limited excuses for another leg absent material growth. EPS growth/visibility at a reasonable price will matter, with those that are not reflecting upside today seeing multiple expansion and safety stocks that are not safe reverting. With this backdrop, our top picks are Honeywell, Ingersoll-Rand, and Danaher, with a positive bias on Neutral-rated United Technologies, while we are most negative onGeneral Electric and Rockwell Automation (ROK), with a negative bias on N-rated $51.92 Emerson Electric (EMR)…

    Pent Up Demand Pushing Cyclical Stocks

    We are coming out of a lengthy period of decreased spending in the wake of 2008-09, which has built pent up demand for automobiles, housing and capital expenditures. The average age of vehicles on the road has reached a record high of 11.4 years. Demand for new houses fell off dramatically since the Great Recession. The average U.S. home was built in 1974 and continues to age.
    As people have chosen to fix rather than replace their vehicles and homes, we’ve seen the replacement-type industries do very well. Auto Retail’s second quarter sales and earnings per share were up 14.7% and 18.6%, respectively. Home improvement retail grew sales nearly 10% with earnings up 20% from second quarter 2012.
    Adding to the pent up demand for housing is the number of young people living with their parents rather than buying or renting on their own. According to real-estate marketplace Trulia, the number of “missing households” (Americans who would currently be owning or renting a home if pre-recession economic trends had continued) was up to 2.4 million in March. More than half of these missing households are 18 to 34-year-olds.
    This pent up demand extends beyond just the immediate products being bought by consumers. Businesses have held off replacing durable goods since the recession. All of this excess demand will have to be released at some point. Eventually, these homes and vehicles will exceed their useful life and need to be replaced. To meet the need for the excess demand, companies will not be able to hold off re-investing in new plant equipment.
    We’ve seen the beginning of this demand in 2013 and believe there is more to come. The market is buying into this as well, as more growth and manufacturing oriented sectors – such as Consumer Discretionary and Industrials – have performed well over the near-term.
    Share prices for stocks in the Industrial sectors are mo

    This development will likely give battered mREITs like Annaly Capital (NYSE: NLY  ) , Armour Residential (NYSE: ARR  ) , and American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC  ) a huge boost as investors begin to feel less panic regarding a tapering of the current QE3 program.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now: 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.

    Following a series of M&A announcements in the oilfield-services sector since the onset of the oil market downturn, French oil-field service company Technip and U.S. oilfield equipment company FMC Technologies (NYSE:FTI) hooked up in an all-stock deal valuing the combined company at $13 billion. Shareholders of each company will own 50% of the combined entity, to be named TechnipFMC, which implies a roughly $6.5 billion acquisition valuation for each entity. The transaction, which should close early next year, will “combine Technip’s innovative systems and solutions, state-of-the-art assets, engineering strengths, and project management capabilities with FMC Technologies’ leading technology, manufacturing, and service capabilities.” Further, it should save $400 million in annual costs by 2019. Moreover, it will enable the combined company to compete better against larger oil-field service rivals Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHI), Halliburton (NYSE:HAL), and Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB), which have all gained strength during the downturn either through M&A activities or cost savings initiatives.

    2016 was an interesting year for Halliburton (NYSE:HAL). Not only did the oil-field services company work through one of the largest downturns in the history of oil and gas, but it also had to deal with the financial fallout from a major acquisition blowing up in its face. When it reported fourth-quarter and fiscal 2016 earnings this week, the company showed that it had taken a big blow, but was ready to move on to the next big thing in the oil and gas market. Let’s take a quick look at the company’s results for the year that was, and see what could be in store in the coming quarters.

Sensible, dependable, long-lasting.

That’s how many new-vehicle buyers would describe Toyota. But boring? That hits a little too close to home for CEO Akio Toyoda.

“Until now, there were times when Toyotas cars were called ‘boring’ or were said to be lacking in character,” Toyoda told reporters Wednesday. “But I now feel that, in terms of driving and design, our customers have begun to favorably evaluate our cars.”

Nonetheless, he acknowledged, there’s “still room for improvement.”

Toyoda’s comments came as the Japanese automaker reported so-sofinancial results for the full fiscal year ended March 31.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    According to Bob Radie (see transcript of January 9th teleconference), the company’s president and chief executive officer, a key consideration in the denial was the FDA’s granting, in November 2016, rival product MorphaBond three-year exclusivity for the intranasal route of abuse. Significantly, though, even though MorphaBond – developed by tiny, privately-owned Inspirion Delivery Technologies – was approved in October 2015, it is yet to be commercialized. An October 25, 2016, marketing agreement between Inspirion and Japan-based Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. (OTCPK:DSKYF) suggests MorphaBond could be launched in the near future, but it’s also important to note that the aforementioned exclusivity expires on October 2, 2018, at which point Egalet will be able to include the clinical data from its intranasal abuse potential study in its label.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

In 2014, Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) founder Mark Zuckerberg paid close to $100 million for 700 acres of beachfront property on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

After analysts at CITI and Jefferies upgraded their NVDA price targets, the teams at Evercore ISI and Loop Capital are the latest to jump onto the bullish NVDA bandwagon. But, can NVIDIA stock sustain this rally after the monstrous returns in 2016? Do fundamentals back a bullish case going into 2017? Let’s take a closer look.

    Over the past year, NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock has rocketed to the stratosphere, up some 300%, and that means the GPU maker’s financial results are more scrutinized than ever.

    Shares of Santa Clara, California-basedNVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)took another tumble yesterday (April 10th), falling by more than 2.5%. NVIDIA stock tanked due to the influx of fresh bearish commentary from the investment research firmBMO Capital Markets. NVDA stock closed below $100 for the first time since the early March when it had registered its lowest close ($97.67) in 2017. NVDA stock is trading very near to its lowest close in 2017 and bears the risk of going down much lower. NVIDIA stock has not been able to hold on to its good start to the year and has lost almost 8.5% YTD. We did suggest recently NVDA stock is a high-risk bet in the near term. Now the question arises, hasNVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) stock bottomed out? Or, there is still more downside left for NVDA stock. Let’s take a closer look.

    We rate CA INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C+. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed – some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself. 

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 15.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 6.8%. Weakness in the company’s revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.

    Net operating cash flow has decreased to $45.00 million or 31.81% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm’s growth is significantly lower.

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The gross profit margin for CA INC is currently very high, coming in at 85.27%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 17.31% trails the industry average.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now: Ambarella, Inc.(AMBA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Last October, I compared GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO) with its supplier Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA). At the time, I concluded that Ambarella’s more diversified business model, stronger margins, and lower valuations made it the better play.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Ambarella Inc (NASDAQ: AMBA) shares dropped 11 percent to $55. Ambarella posted stronger-than-expected results for its third quarter, but issued a weak revenue forecast for the current quarter.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Chipmaker Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) produces image processing SoCs (systems on chips) for a wide range of products, including action cameras, dash cams, drones, security cameras, and augmented reality glasses. But it generates most of its direct OEM revenue from one customer — action camera maker GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO).

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    Shares of Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) did not have a good outing in the month of March. AMBAstock lost close to 3% in March. Further, AMBA stock did not have a great start to the month of April and is down marginally. As things stand, AMBA stock is set for further downtrend since AMBA stock has made a bearish crossover with its 50-day SMA. AMBA stock closed below its 50-day SMA on April 7th indicating a bearish signal. 50-day SMA has acted as a good support for AMBA stock recent past. Also, as seen in the Ambarella stock technical chart, last week, MACD value turned negative which is another bearish signal in recent days. AMBA stock is also facing strong resistance from its 100-day SMA in the last few trading sessions. It has been hovering around its 100-day SMA trend line but has not been able to break free.

  • [By Peter Graham]

    Ambarella, Inc. (AMBA) has been all over the map over the last few years. It has defied gravity both to the up and to the downside, and although today’s suggested short of the stock is strictly technical, we do believe its current share price has once again gotten a little out of line when you compare it to the rest of the markets’ valuation metrics right now.
