  • One of Icahn's Favorite Stocks Seems to be Overvalued

    One well-known activist investor, Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio), further increased his position in Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK) through Icahn Capital LP by 10% to $1.03 billion in the company's latest filing, with 73.05 million shares. Chesapeake is Icahn's eighth-largest holding in its $32.05 billion portfolio, and the stake represents 3.2% of Icahn´s portfolio, so we can conclude that the stock´s performance will affect its performance.


    Icahn remains bullish on the company as evidenced by his increased position in the company's shares, so let´s try to find the intrinsic value of the stock based on an absolute valuation model and see if we can have an upside potential in this stock.

      


  • Why I Still Consider Kroger as a Buy Recommendation

    In this article, let's take a look at the supermarket operator Kroger Co (KR) and try to explain if this is an appealing investment opportunity or not, when shares of the company are trading nearly its 52-week high. Shares of the firm closed yesterday at $73.11, amassing a year-to-date return of 13.6%, which I consider attractive when compared to a market benchmark such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY). Further, the past September I wrote an article recommending the stock, and I think it has done pretty good, with a 42% return in the period.

Shares of the firm closed at $107.35, amassing a year-to-date return of 59.6%, which I consider very good when compared to a market benchmark such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY).

  • Some Reasons to Short Nike

    In this article, let's take a look at NIKE, Inc. (NKE), the giant in the sport business, and see if this is an appealing investment opportunity or not.


    Nike is the strongest player in the industry, and we all know this top position is not easy to maintain because the industry has evolved steadily over the past four or five decades. Moreover, the competition is high with few barriers to entry, which means that well-known brands or new competitors could grow quickly helped by innovation. In such scenario, the only way is to reach differentiation to justify higher prices. Among the reasons for this admirable position, three of them are: size, brand image and competitive advantages. I believe the company will maintain its leadership because it plans to continue making efforts to innovate with focus on marketing campaigns as well as distribution strategies. For example, the improved version of Nike Flyknit Free, situated Nike in a higher level. All the above are drivers for long-term growth of the company. Furthermore, in this industry there is something that is true: higher innovation means higher prices. The company also plans to lower costs through supply chain and reaching efficiencies could have greater impact in margins. Also, propaganda strategy with top athletes generates consumer confidence and long-term credibility to the brand.

  • Buy the Keysight Technologies Spinoff After the Dip

    David Einhorn,Joel Greenblatt - Buy The Keysight Technologies Spinoff After The Dip

Since massively outperforming the S&P 500 following its separation last year, shares of Keysight Technologies (KEYS) have lagged the market and its former parent Agilent Technologies (A) considerably.


    Does the pullback represent a buying opportunity for new investors?

      


  • Aetna, Cisco Top Greenblatt Magic Formula Screener

    Joel Greenblatt - Aetna, Cisco Top Greenblatt Magic Formula Screener

    Famed investor Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio) published “The Little Book That Beats the Market” in 2005, which would become a classic in finance literature. The straightforward, easy-to-read book numbers just over 200 pages, and lays out what Greenblatt calls the “magic formula”, a method of picking stocks with low P/E ratios and high returns on capital.


    Greenblatt’s formula for return on capital is: EBIT/(Net Working Capital + Net Fixed Assets). The Magic Formula is a relative ranking of companies based on the two criteria, and calls for investors to hold 20-30 stocks for at least one year. After the one-year period, investors should screen for new stocks and establish a new portfolio based on current financial statements and stock prices.
