Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now

By Josh Steiner

PRA Group (NASDAQ:PRAA) calls itself “a global leader in acquiring and collecting nonperforming loans.” The irony isn’t lost on us. After reporting fourth quarter earnings, it would appear as though many of the debt collector’s loans remain nonperforming.

In fact, it’s our contention that a growing portion of these loans won’t be paid back at all.

With allowance charges rising – a fancy way of saying the portion of the purchased receivables that may ultimately be uncollectible – profitability of the $1.4 billion debt collector will remain severely challenged over the coming quarters.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Carl Icahn, the billionaire investor who has been laying siege to corporate boards for decades, will be named special adviser to Donald Trump on overhauling regulations, according to a person familiar with the matter.

For years, Icahn considered himself the ultimate outsider, painting his role as storming corporate castles run for country club executives by traversing moats and battling the highly-paid and established knights of those in power, like investment bankers from Goldman Sachs. His detractors attacked Icahn for being a corporate raider trying to sack corporations for quick profits. But with Trump winning the White House, Icahn now has the keys to the kingdom, or at least the ear of the president-elect.

Hot Casino Stocks To Buy Right Now

Late last year, Japan legalized casinos in the country, opening up a gaming industry that could generate as much as $30 billion a year in revenues and become the second-largest casino market in the world. As several players scout for licenses, Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) is ready to invest heavily in the region, committing to an initial investment of $10 billion. While this is a significant number, if Las Vegas Sands is able to capture a decent share in the market, it would make sense given the revenue potential of the market. Currently, Macau and Singapore are the largest value drivers of the company, together accounting for more than 80% of its valuation.

The company is heavily dependent on Macau for revenues, and regulation changes in the region have impacted it negatively. At its peak in 2013, Macau’s gaming market had reached a size of $45 billion. However, after stricter regulations imposed by Chinese regulators, revenues started slumping. In 2016, the to tal amount won by casinos in the region stood at nearly $28 billion. Japan is likely to emerge as a huge market for casinos, with annual revenue estimates ranging from $10 billion to $30 billion.

    Abeona Therapeutics is clearly a timing trade – we think today’s something of a blowoff top, marked by a volume surge and the fact that the stock’s already peeling back from its peak; the profit-takers are already going to work. We saw a similar surge on Tuesday, and though that one didn’t end up kick-starting a pullback, it helped set up today’s reversal bar (by virtue of luring in the last of the would-be buyers). There’s just not a lot of room left for more upside.

Whole Foods Market Inc. (NASDAQ: WFM) released its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report after the markets closed on Wednesday. The company posted $0.28 in earnings per share (EPS) and $3.5 billion in revenue, versus consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters that called for $0.24 in EPS and $3.5 billion in revenue. The same period from last year had $0.30 in EPS and $3.44 billion in revenue.

The company announced sweeping changes to its corporate structure eliminating the co-CEO positions in the company and consolidating it under just one CEO. John Mackey will be taking on this role. Former co-CEO Walter Robb will remain on the board of directors and continue to serve as Chairman for both Whole Kids Foundation and Whole Cities Foundation. The transition will take place on December 31, 2016.

Comparable store sales decreased 2.6%.

In terms of the outlook for the coming fiscal year, the company expects sales growth in the range of 2.5% to 4.5% and EPS of $1.42 or greater. There are consensus estimates calling for $1.47 in EPS and $16.43 billion in revenue for fiscal 2017.

financial investment: PACCAR Inc.(PCAR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JPMorgan]

    We are Neutral on PCAR as the company faces the risk of both lower volume and margin pressure from declining demand in its core NA HD truck business in 2016. However, we believe PCAR should command a premium valuation due to its track record of solid execution. In addition, PCAR pays out a normal and a special dividend which, in total, should equal ~50% of net income and currently offers a yield of 4.1% (JPMe total payout of ~$2.12/share) making it potentially attractive to income-oriented investors.

    NVIDIA has also recently announced several partnerships lately, like the one with Microsoft,dubbed Olympus, aimed at maximizing GPU performance for data centers. Then there are also other partnerships in the self-driving cars space, like the one with Bosch, and another one with PACCAR (NASDAQ:PCAR), to develop autonomous trucks. Of course, most of these partnerships will most likely take a while before they can translate to any monetary benefits for NVIDIA. What these deals do, though, is reinforce NVIDIA’s grip over this market, which even pushed Intel (NASDAQ:INTC)to acquire Mobileye (NYSE:MBLY), to build a presence in this space. Mobileye is the company that lost business from Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)to NVIDIA last year. Putting that aside, more importantly, the price that Intel is paying to acquire Mobileye has indirectly pointed to the fact that NVIDIA may be significantly undervalued.

    PACCAR INC has improved earnings per share by 16.3% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, PACCAR INC increased its bottom line by earning $3.82 versus $3.30 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($4.58 versus $3.82).

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    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. Compared to other companies in the Machinery industry and the overall market, PACCAR INC’s return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    Despite the weak revenue results, PCAR has outperformed against the industry average of 21.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.6%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company’s bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Machinery industry. The net income increased by 16.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $371.40 million to $431.20 million.

financial investment: Uni-Pixel, Inc.(UNXL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Uni-Pixel (UNXL) manufactures electronic film products using its proprietary manufacturing process, UniBoss. This stock closed up 7.6% to $16.84 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 1.88 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 1 million

    Volume % Change: 108%

    From a technical perspective, UNXL bounced sharply higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $15.89 with above-average volume. This stock looks to be forming a double bottom chart pattern at $14.91 to $15.16. If that bottom holds, then shares of UNXL could see a continuation of Monday’s upside action.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in UNXL as long as it’s trending above $15.16 or $14.91 and then once it sustains a move or close above Monday’s high of $17.53 with volume that hits near or above 1 million shares. If we get that move soon, then UNXL will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at its 200-day moving average of $19.89.

financial investment: Terra Nitrogen Company L.P.(TNH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Robert Rapier] While the MLP space is dominated by the oil and gas sector, in last week’s article we began to explore some of the more exotic master limited partnership offerings. This week we continue our exploration of nontraditional MLPs by looking at the partnerships supplying fertilizer.

    Rentech (Nasdaq: RTK) has been around for more than a decade, and it has shifted strategies several times. Full disclosure: Rentech’s Chief Technology Officer Harold Wright is a former manager of mine when we were both at ConocoPhillips, and I have visited Rentech’s facility in Commerce City, Colorado.

    For most of Rentech’s existence, the company has sought to commercialize alternative fuels. At one time it had ambitions to build a large coal-to-liquids (CTL) plant, but federal legislation ultimately nudged it instead into the biomass-to-liquids (BTL) space. The company did build a BTL demonstration plant, but ultimately shut it down and has now refocused its effor ts on becoming “one of the largest wood processing companies in the world.”

    During its interesting journey as a company, Rentech acquired two ammonia nitrogen fertilizer facilities, which turned out to be a profit center that funded the alternative energy research. In November 2011, Rentech spun off this fertilizer business into an MLP called Rentech Nitrogen Partners LP (NYSE: RNF).

    In the months leading to the spin-off, RTK’s market capitalization was about $200 million. Rentech maintained 60 percent ownership of RNF, and three months after the spin-off RTK’s market cap had risen to $400 million, while investors had bid RNF up to $1 billion. Interestingly, RTK’s share of RNF was worth more than RTK’s entire market cap, a situation that persists. The market currently values Rentech at $482 million, while the valuation of Rentech Nitrogen Partners makes RTK’s 60 percent stake in RNF worth slightly more than $600 million — another illu
