  • Small-Cap Stocks With Large Growth Potential

    While monitoring the 52-week lows at GuruFocus, I found LKQ Corp (LKQ). The company has strong fundamentals and has been consistently growing its earnings at an annual rate of 20-30 percent for at least the past ten years. The company is a large provider of auto parts to collision shops, and its stock has done quite well. It is still a good value when comparing its growth rate to its P/E ratio of 24. As I took a look at the chart, I saw that the stock is up 1,094 percent in the past ten years. That leads to the question, “How can I find another stock similar to this one before an exponential move up?” The stock is currently a mid-cap with a market cap of 7.9 billion. The first step is to look for the small cap stocks before they reach a mid to large size. A few characteristics that stood out to me were its strong ratings for Financial Strength and Profitability & Growth, scoring 8’s in both categories. Looking at the past ten years of financial data, the company was able grow at a fast rate while the stock’s P/E stayed below 35 before its price acceleration to the upside. Using that information, I used the GuruFocus All-In-One Screener to search for the following criteria:

    Market Cap: Maximum of $1 billion


  • Oshkosh: Attractive Valuation Combined with Bright Outlook

    As the market sold off yesterday with the S&P 500 declined by 2% in a day, I observed that the industrial ETF is still above its 50 days moving average even though the RSI and MACD indicators both show some weakness.

  • Outlook for August 2014

    The quarterly earnings season has been in full swing for a couple of weeks now and it has been interesting to watch a majority of the companies eke out earnings beat. However, the outlook for the rest of the year from most earnings has been mixed. The Fed has indicated that the bond buying program is going to decrease again in Aug following the trend and has indicated that they are seeing some inflation in the economy.

    July turned out to be a net negative month due to the ongoing crisis in Eastern Europe & Middle East and the trend will probably continue into August. This could potentially provide the long-due correction in the market, providing with some investing opportunity considering all the following points.


  • Argentina Defaults: Now What?

    It was a game of chicken, and neither side blinked. Argentina and its holdout creditors failed to reach an agreement, and as a result Argentina defaulted Wednesday night, the second time it has done so in 13 years.

    On Thursday, the Global X FTSE Argentina ETF (ARGT) was sharply lower, down over 4%, but I wouldn’t classify the action as “panic.” This correction merely took Argentine stock prices back to the levels of late June.


  • A Few Reasons That Make Toyota an Interesting Pick

    It’s time for celebrations for Toyota Motor (TM) since it finally managed to earn the second position in American-made car index. Toyota’s Camry stood at the second position while Ford’s (F) F-150 topped the list. In fact, the Camry is the top selling car in the USA, according to a competition in June. Its sales climbed 13.4% in June, clocking in at 40,664 vehicles.

    Though the American market is dominated by pickups, its sales are now facing a downturn. This is evident from the sales figure for the month of June, which inched up by 0.6% only. In fact, pickup sales decreased 0.8% to 240,679 units, in the first six months of 2014.


  • General Mills Can Be Rewarding

    Food companies are having a tough time, trying to cope up with reduced consumer interests towards items such as cereals. Further, their intention to spend less has been a big hurdle for such companies. Increasing input costs have added to the woes of the food retailers, making the situation even worse. One company which is facing all of the aforementioned problems is General Mills (GIS) which posted its fourth quarter results recently. The numbers were below the analysts’ estimates, enabling its share prices to fall.

    McDonald’s Corp. (MCD), world’s largest fast food restaurant chain, was recently put under the scanner for faulty labor and wage practices in its franchised operations.

  • Tocqueville Asset Management - The Chinese Wall of Worry: Uncertainty Rhymes With Opportunity

    A former darling of investors, the Chinese stock market today has few friends

    The U.S. stock market has had a well-publicized five-year rise without a major speculative blow-off. In a recent private letter to friends, Bob Farrell, one of my favorite stock market historians and analysts, sees huge excess potentially developing in the persistence of rising prices and the general complacency about risk. Yet for now, it seems to him, only one thing appears to matter: the Fed’s extended zero-interest-rate policy (ZIRP). He is not alone. According to the just-published annual report of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), sometimes labeled “the central banks’ central bank”:
