Top Safest Stocks To Invest In 2018: Green Brick Partners, Inc.(GRBK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedgoing long on small cap homebuilder stockGreen Brick Partners (NASDAQ: GRBK):

    For Green Brick Partners, we’re mainly feeding off of the hammer-shaped reversal bar from last week. That long-tailed low only had to kiss the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.45 to kick-start a reversal, and we’ve seen some nice bullish follow-through so far. Ideally we’d like to see a move above the February ceiling around $9.90, but we fear waiting that long could leave us chasing it higher. See, what you can’t see on the chart (because it’s further back) is that GRBK is no stranger to multi-point runups. Based on its past runs, Green Brick Partners could be in the high teens before you even know it.

 A major jubilee is coming to America soon…   Lots of people will be excited about this once-in-50-years event. The crowds will cheer. And politicians will promise new and better prosperity.   But what will happen is really a national nightmare.   If you've never heard of the concept, of a national jubilee, I (Porter) would urge you to please read today's essay more carefully – and more skeptically – than you ever have before.   You see, I fear we may be among the only people in America who know what's about to happen… and why it can't be stopped.    Have you ever read "The Lottery" – Shirley Jackson's acclaimed short story?

    Xerium Technologies (XRM), a manufacturer of products used in papermaking, is a favorite of micro-cap expert Dan Abramowitz, who heads Hillson Financial Management, in Rockville, Md. Abramowitz calls the company “a turnaround story that is now at an inflection point.” Changes that a new management team put into effect in 2012 should start bearing fruit.

capital investment: TESARO, Inc.(TSRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Guggenheim’s Tony Butler and Kaitlin Sandor argue that Gilead Sciences (GILD) should buy Syndax Pharmaceuticals (SNDX), Corvus Pharmaceuticals (CRVS), and Tesaro (TSRO) to solve its problem of slowing sales:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Shares of Tesaro (TSRO) are soaring today after the biotech company reported positive data for its treatment of ovarian cancer over the weekend. Credit Suisse analyst Alethia Young and team contend that “M&A remains in focus” for Tesaro following the data:

    Getty Images

    We are increasing our target price to $122 from $90 as we move to an M&A DCF valuation. We were at ESMO this weekend, and we believe the big takeaway on Tesaro data is that it works broadly in all 2L ovarian populations and safety looks solid. We also think the robustness of this data bodes well from PRIMA and QUADRA but are maintaining our POS here. We have looked at our model and also adjusted durations in first-line. We think Tesaro remains one of the most attractive and de-risked cancer assets in our landscape and the company has been cited in major press sources as a takeout target (Bloomberg, Investor Business Daily).

    We think M&A remains in focus for Tesaro. Our M&A DCF valuations range from $122 to $157 by our model. We have also built models for other cancers like NSCLC, SCLC, prostate, and others where PARP might be impactful. We assume 0% POS for now but we conservatively see at least another $1B in sales from PARP expansion. Tesaro has been cited in the press as a potential M&A target and is a company we frequently hear mentioned as a target from our conversations. We think the demand for late stage oncology assets is high, especially in the PARP space given the potential for activity across a range of tumors. For a large Pharma player who already has an oncology salesforce and large R&D infrastructure we could see SG&A synergies of 50-75% and R&D synergies of 15-30%. In our base case TSRO P&L we model a tax rate of 30% so there could be synergies here as well. Two additional key swing factors which might be included in a CVR are how much expansion from PARP in other cancers and immuno-oncology…

    Ex M&A,

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Who has PARP? A poly ADP-ribose polymerase inhibitor (PARPi) kills cancer cells by interfering tumor DNA repair pathway with the potential to treat ovarian, breast and prostate cancer. Studies have shown that patients with BRCA mutations (BRCAmut) respond to PARPi. AstraZenecas (AZN) PARPi was approved in 2014 whileClovis Oncology (CLVS) and Tesaro (TSRO) both have positive Phase III data. Clovis licensed its PARPi from Pfizer (PFE) in 2011 and Tesaro licensed its PARPi from Merck (MRK) in 2012, after Sanofis (SNY) PARPi (later demonstrated that it cannot block PARP) failed in Phase III in early 2011.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Tesaro Inc. (NASDAQ: TSRO) traded down about 10% Tuesday and posted a new 52-week low of $74.57 after Friday at $82.87. The 52-week high is $192.94. Volume was about 2 million, more than double the daily average of around 870,000 million shares. The maker of cancer therapeutics had no specific news.

  • [By George Budwell]

    Unfortunately for Clovis and its shareholders, though, Astra’s Lynparza is currently underpriority review with the FDA as a maintenance therapy in ovarian cancer, andTesaro’s (NASDAQ:TSRO)rival PARP inhibitor Zejula gained an early approval– along with afar broader label than Rubraca — just this week.

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    Tesaro’s (NASDAQ:TSRO)ovarian cancer drug, niraparib, will begin competing for prescriptions earlier than expected. Niraparib, which will be sold under the brand name Zejula, notched FDA approval on Monday, more than three months ahead of its June 30 decision date. The early approval setsTesaro up for a fierce battle for market share withAstraZeneca (NYSE:AZN)and Clovis Oncology (NASDAQ:CLVS), both of which market drugs that work similarly to Zejula.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

It hasn’t been easy being a big bank stock. JPMorgan Chase (JPM) has dropped 23% from its 52-week high, while Citigroup (C) has fallen 21%, and Bank of America (BAC) has declined 20%. The SPDR S&P Bank ETF (KBE) is off 17%. So yes, it’s been bad to be a U.S. bank. But at least they’re not European. The folks at Bespoke Investment Group explain:

timothy a. clary/Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

Everybody knows that banks have been under a world of hurt given the current ultra-low interest rate environment. Pull up a chart of any bank stock and the chart is the same; it starts at the upper left and ends at the lower right. The S&P 500 Bank Index looks the same, and from its high last year, it’s down 20%. From a long-term perspective, the group broke its uptrend line earlier this year, and after a nice rally offthe February lows, banks stalled out right at that uptrend line. From a technical perspective, the group is certainly in a precarious position.

    On Thursday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting small cap LED semiconductor stockRubicon Technology (NASDAQ: RBCN):

    Rubicon Technology isn’t going to be a monster-sized winner for us, even if things go perfectly. About the best downside target we could hope for is the $0.60 area, where the stock was launched into an unsustainable uptrend a week ago. But, it’s a high-odds trade we can’t pass up. Yesterday’s doji bar after a big rally was a warning sign that we were transitioning into a net-selling environment. Today’s sharp pullback confirms we’re moving into that bearish mode.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2018: Liquidity Services Inc.(LQDT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Liquidity Services Inc. (NASDAQ: LQDT) was raised to Buy from Underperform, and the price target was raised up to $45 from $28.50, at Merrill Lynch.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Liquidity Service (LQDT) is an online auction marketplace for surplus and salvage assets. This stock closed up 14.9% at $34.44 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 1.60 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 402,622

    Volume % Change: 336%

    From a technical perspective, LQDT skyrocketed higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $30.94 with strong upside volume. This move briefly saw shares of LQDT trend back above its 200-day moving average at $34.60, before it closed just below that level at $34.44. Shares of LQDT are now quickly moving within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if LQDT manages to take out Monday’s intraday high of $35.21 and then once it clears some more near-term overhead resistance at $35.71 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LQDT as long as it’s trending above $32.67 or above $31.60 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 402,622 shares. If we get that breakout soon, then LQDT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $38 to $40.90.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Own For 2018: Corning Incorporated(GLW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components industry and the overall market, CORNING INC’s return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.

     

  • [By Craig Jones]

    Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) also had a high options volume in the first half of the session, said Jon Najarian. Almost 8,000 contracts of the December 32 calls were traded and Najarian jumped in. He's going to hold the position for a week.

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Corning’s (NYSE:GLW) cutting-edge glass technology can already be found everywhere from smartphones to LCD TVs, advanced optics systems, lab science equipment, and even the ceramic substrates and particulate filters underlying pollution control systems in millions of vehicles today.But Corning is ready to take its show on the road in a much more visible way.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The gross profit margin for CORNING INC is rather high; currently it is at 51.58%. Regardless of GLW’s high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 9.33% trails the industry average.

     

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    3M Co (NYSE: MMM) agreed to sell substantially all of its communication markets division to Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) for $900 million.

    Corning expects the deal adding $0.07 to $0.09 per share in FY19 earnings.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    CORNING INC has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, CORNING INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.73 versus $1.34 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 20.2% in earnings ($1.38 versus $1.73).
