  • Lending Club CEO Resigns, Stock Sinks Amid Loan Discrepancies

    Lending Club (NYSE:LC), a peer-to-peer online lending company, has sunk 63% year to date and lost its CEO Renaud Laplanche, who resigned Monday after an internal investigation found sales of $22 million in near-prime loans to a single investor, contrary to the investor’s instructions.


    The New York Times reported that a Lending Club employee found the dates on $3 million of loan applications had been altered and alerted Laplanche, who then told an internal auditor. That investigation would also reveal discrepancies in the aforementioned $22 million of loans. The company also discovered Laplanche had failed to disclose a personal interest in an investment fund in which Lending Club was considering investing.

      


  • Tech Investor Chase Coleman Cuts Stake in Pure Storage As Fund Dives

    A hedge fund stung by losses this year due to its heavy investment in the faltering tech sector has cut an $81.6 million stake in data storage company Pure Storage Inc. (NYSE:PSTG).


    Chase Coleman (Trades, Portfolio)’s Tiger Global Management 6.8% return in 2015, beating the S&P 500’s 2.2% decline, turned to a 22% drop in the first quarter as top positions in Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and JD.com (NASDAQ:JD) sagged. In 2015, growth stocks like Amazon and Netflix were the top performers of the S&P but exorbitant valuations caught up with them as value stocks began a rebound in 2016.

  • 2 Stocks Super Investors Are Buying

    GuruFocus provides tools and screens to look at 13-F filings in the aggregate and discover lots of information about the famous gurus of value investing. I used the aggregated portfolio tool to sort guru holdings on combined weighting percentage. This shows us which stocks value investment gurus have allocated the most funds to.


    Since J. L. Kelly Jr. came up with the Kelly Criterion in 1956, we know the amount you should bet increases strongly as the odds are more favorable. Great investors put the math behind the principle in practice by betting big on their highest conviction picks. True, there are a few things messing up that logic. Tax considerations can also play a role in buy and sell decisions and cause investors to hang on to fairly valued stocks.

    With these articles, I want to highlight all the companies that according to GuruFocus have a predictable business and are undervalued according to the Price/DCF (Average). I also apply another filter to those results to give you only the companies that have a significant EPS growth rate.


    When a company is undervalued but earnings are growing, we can believe that sooner or later Mr. Market will take care of the price.

      


  • GoPro is Surprisingly Undervalued

    How can investors make sense of this and should you be long or short?

  • 3D Systems Insiders Buy, Sell Company Stock

    Folks who grew up in the 1960s came of age with a comprehension of 3D printing that their elders probably didn’t have, thanks to the space-age TV programs they watched. Three-dimensional printing was still largely theoretical in those days, though; in the 21st century, it is a real technology, still nascent but growing and expected to flourish in the near future.


    3D printing, in essence, is the process of making a three-dimensional object. It certainly doesn’t refer to printing in the traditional sense. Rather, it is a potentially revolutionary procedure that has a wide range of applications, some of which are no longer theoretical. In fact, 3D printers are being used to create prosthetic human body parts.

  • Small-Cap Consensus Picks By The Investing Gurus

    Every once in a while I like to check with the investing gurus to see which small cap stocks they are holding. These are the stocks that have the most room for growth. It is more likely that a company will grow its market cap from $500 million to $5 billion than growing its market cap from $400 billion to $4 trillion. The screen I used at GuruFocus was for stocks with a market cap of less than $1 billion and held by at least 5 gurus (Small Cap Consensus Screen). The screen resulted in five stocks:


    Resource America Inc (REXI) is a specialized asset management company that uses industry specific expertise to evaluate, originate, service and manage investment opportunities through its real estate, financial fund management and commercial finance subsidiaries as well as its joint ventures. This has been a slow growth company with revenue increasing at an annual rate of 2.45 percent over the past five years. Earnings per share turned positive in 2012 for the first time since the recession began. The company’s EPS for the last twelve months is 0.32 giving it a P/E of 30.08. Although nothing stands out with the company’s financials, the stock has been up 12 percent over the past year. The stock is held by 7 gurus we follow, but most have been reducing their holdings. Of the gurus we follow, Donald Yacktman is the largest holder with 1.46 million shares, representing 7.16 percent of the shares outstanding.

      


  • Hedge Fund Manager Larry Robbins Boosts Stakes in Carter´s

    According to GuruFocus Real Time Picks, billionaire Larry Robbins (Trades, Portfolio), who founded Glenview Capital Management takes a long position on Carter's, Inc. (NYSE:CRI). The company, a $4.24 billion market cap, has a trailing P/E ratio that indicates that the stock is relatively overvalued (29x vs 24.4x of industry mean). So one question arises, why this hedge fund manager is betting on it?


    So in this article, let's take a look at a model which is applicable to stable, mature, dividend-paying firms and try to find the intrinsic value of the stock. Although the model has a number of characteristics that make it useful and appropriate for many applications, is by no means the be-all and end-all for valuation. The purpose is to force investors to evaluate different assumptions about growth and future prospects.

      


  • Kids' Apparel Is a Growing Business

    According to GuruFocus Real Time Picks, Larry Robbins (Trades, Portfolio) added Carter's, Inc. (NYSE:CRI) at an average price of $69.5 and currently holds 3,673,608 shares of the stock. This makes me feel that he is betting that the textiles, apparel, and luxury goods industry will expand in the near future.

    Carter’s is a marketer of apparel for babies and young children. Under its Carter’s brand, the company designs, sources, and markets a range of products, mainly for sizes newborn to seven. Under its OshKosh brand, the company designs, sources, and markets a range of young children’s apparel, mainly for children in sizes newborn to twelve.

  • Priceline Group Continues Its Profitable Growth Streak

    That the travel industry can be fiercely competitive, with its highly fragmented market and difficult to retain customer loyalty, is nothing new. However, Priceline Group Inc. (NASDAQ:PCLN) seems to be sailing through the recent quarters like a breeze without a doubt and fourth quarter fiscal 2013 was no exception to the rule. In fact, the company’s name change (formerly Priceline.com) is a sign of growth, as the new name comprises all five Priceline brands – Booking.com, priceline.com, agoda.com, KAYAK and rentalcars.com – in the form of a global business, thereby showcasing the firm’s scale. So, despite the company’s high target price of $1217.03, its impeccable balance sheet and outstanding returns on capital make it one of the favorite long-term picks among investment gurus like Chase Coleman (Trades, Portfolio) and John Burbank (Trades, Portfolio). But how will the growth streak continue looking forward?

    Now, turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, let's take a look at the intrinsic value of this company and try to explain to investors the reasons why it is a good buy or not. In this article, we present a model that is by no means the be-all and end-all for valuation.

  • Giant Eyes for this Internet Television Giant - Sanford J. Colen Continues Long in Netflix

    Over the past days hedge funds have been filing their form 13-F, which is a quarterly report of equity holdings filed by institutional investment managers with at least $100 million in equity assets under management, as required by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These investors include banks, insurance companies, hedge funds, investment companies, foundations and pension funds. Form 13-Fs only report long positions.

  • A Travel Agent with Top-Line Profits

    The $600 billion online travel industry characterizes itself through low costs on capital and very high returns on invested capital. Investment gurus, like Chase Coleman (Trades, Portfolio) and Chris Davis (Trades, Portfolio), know that this market holds promising long term profits, so they recently bought several million company shares of Priceline.com Inc. (NASDAQ:PCLN). This online travel aggregator offers booking services such as hotel rooms, airline tickets, rental cars and cruises. Under the brand names of Priceline.com, Booking.com, Agoda, and rentalcars.com, the company riels in profits through transaction fees for its online bookings. And so far, metrics have been fruitful.

  • X Marks the Spot in Billionaire Portfolios

    Movie hero Indiana Jones once told his archaeology students that X never marks the spot on the treasure map. But recent trading shows that stocks with the x factor, namely XRS and EXAR, do have a place in the portfolios of numerous billionaires, including Chase Coleman of Tiger Global Management and George Soros of Soros Fund Management. XRS and EXAR are both showing positive signs in the third quarter: TAL Education Group’s net income for the quarter is up 45.4%. With the acquisition of Cadeka Microcircuits, Exar Corporation’s income is up 80%.

    Here are the most recent company financials and a few guru trading highlights.
