Ken Fisher Watch

  • Despite Recent Downgrade, This Ecommerce Giant is a Buy

    Amazon.com (AMZN) was downgraded by analysts at Evercore ISI from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating in a report to clients. The target price was increased to $460.00 from $440.00. Considering the last close of $ 440.1, this suggests an upside potential of 4.5% from the company’s current price.


    Analyst Ken Sena commented, "We’re reducing our Amazon rating to HOLD from BUY as shares now trade within a close range of our $460 target. While retail and Amazon Web Services trends appear on track and N/T operating margins seemed poised for upside this quarter and next, our reduced rating recognizes the strong run in shares, now up 45% YTD, and the growing capital investment we are seeing through leasing activity, making modeling upside on the basis of FCF increasingly difficult." Ken Sena continued saying: “As we look back historically, we find the use of capital leases in place of standard Capex has steadily grown – from one-third of total capital investment (Capex + PP&E Acq. under Capital Leases) in 1Q13 ($340m) to over one-half in 1Q15 ($954m). While we understand the rationale here, as Amazon takes advantage of a low interest rate environment, it nevertheless masks the true capital intensity of the business when considering standard FCF measures as cash payments are spread out and flow through financing activities (as opposed to Capex through investing activities) on the C/F.”

      


  • Ford's Economies of Scale and the Three F's

    In this article, let's take a look at Ford Motor Co. (F), the second-largest U.S. producer of cars and trucks. The stock is trading between its 52-week price range (about 14% above the minimum and 16% below the peak), so this makes investors show increased interest as price nears either the high or the low.


    Ford operates in a very cyclical auto industry, characterized by a very important competition. For the next years, the big challenge for the firm is increasing market share, but this will not be easy, because Ford operates in highly competitive markets. In addition, China and India's automakers are increasing the market share by adopting cost leadership strategies. The evolution of market share in the U.S. and Europe remain relatively stable.

  • FedEx Is a Long-Term Buy

    In this article let's take a look at FedEx Corporation (FDX), the leader in global express delivery services, which provides guaranteed domestic and international air express, residential and business ground package delivery, heavy freight and logistics services.


    Although revenue increased, when compared to the same quarter one year before, it was below the forecast. Also, the company reported weaker earnings than expected from analyst estimates. Earnings of $2.66 per share missed estimates of $2.68. Among the reasons we found were the currency translation and the falling fuel surcharges. After the earnings were released, the stock price plummeted by 3% to $176. In what we consider a five-year period, EPS has grown by 14% annually.

      


  • Ken Fisher for Forbes - Hillary Clinton Stock Market Bets

    Ken Fisher - Ken Fisher For Forbes - Hillary Clinton Stock Market Bets

    I’ve turned up a 155-year indicator that suggests Hillary Clinton will not be elected next year–and offers some interesting perspective as to the market direction in 2016 and 2017.


    An old, little-known truth: Overwhelmingly, when Republicans are elected President, stocks soar during the year they are elected (this has held true every single election since World War II, except 2000, an election in which Al Gore won the popular vote). Average S&P 500 gain: 12%, presumably in anticipation of market-friendly policies. Then stocks flipped negative during most GOP inaugural years–presumably when investors realized the new guy was, yes, still just a politician.

  • Ken Fisher for Forbes – 'Five Market Trends You Can Bank On'

    Continuing last month’s format, here are common investor questions from this month:


    “With this bull market now six years old, isn’t it time to be cautious?” It’s caution time when few worry. Bull market length says nothing, by itself, about the future. See my April 14, 2014 column online. Only excess optimism or a gargantuan, unexpected economic problem can derail bull markets. To date we have neither.
