  • Is Ensco Worth Considering At Current Levels?

    For the offshore drilling industry, challenges are far from over and there are more stocks worth avoiding than buying in the industry. However, along with challenges, there are opportunities and several offshore drillers have provided robust returns in the medium-term after being beaten down to deep-value levels. This article will focus on Ensco (NYSE:ESV) with the stock having declined by 41% for YTD16. The discussion will focus on the backlog and the company’s credit health to conclude if Ensco is worth considering after the big correction.

    The first point that is worth noting is from a industry perspective and is as follows – Even at $40 to $50 per barrel oil, it is very likely that the offshore industry recovery will be slow and challenging conditions will sustain not only in 2016, but potentially through 2017.

    Company Overview: Hormel Foods (NYSE:HRL) is primarily engaged in the production of a variety of meat and food products, many of which are among the best known and trusted in the food industry, and the marketing of those products throughout the U.S. and internationally.

  • Bullish Momentum Will Sustain For Antero Resources

    There has been some recovery in the energy industry in the recent past, but even when conditions were very challenging, there were few stocks that stood apart from peers. Antero Resources (NYSE:AR) is one stock that has continued to perform exceedingly well even in difficult times. This article discusses why positive momentum will sustain for the stock in the coming quarters. In line with this view, I believe that fresh exposure to this quality energy name can be considered at current levels.

    The first point that I want to focus on is the recent acquisition by Antero Resources and my view on the acquisition. On June 9, 2016, Antero Resources signed a definitive agreement with a third party to acquire approximately 55,000 net acres in the core of the Marcellus Shale for a consideration of $450 million. In addition, an agreement has been signed with another third party of additional 13,000 net acres and this translates into total acquisition of 68,000 net acres for $558 million.


  • Microsoft Earnings: Strong Upside Potential Despite Negative Growth

    Microsoft surprised many analysts with their Q4 earnings, which came out on July 19. Microsoft reported non-GAAP revenues of $22.6 billion and non-GAAP per share profit of $0.69 beating analyst estimates of $22.14 billion and $0.58. With stock movement after earnings results of late being extremely reliant on the deviation from analyst consensus estimates, Microsoft’s stock saw a nice jump for $53 to the current $56 levels.

    It would be a bit of an understatement to say that Microsoft fired on all cylinders, as the company posted some solid growth numbers on several products including search advertising and Windows OEM revenues.

  • Phillips 66: Time to Bail Out?

    Bloomberg recently released figures that are possibly ominous to oil refiners. According to the news agency, earnings in the oil industry this second quarter will turn out to be brighter. This is possible because of the lower oil prices in the quarter that led to better margins for the oil-refining business. This better margin attracted much production in the refinery products that eventually led to a glut. Specifically, global refining margins were at $13.80 a barrel in the second quarter and at $11.40 in July.

  • Dividend Investors Should Research These 10 Stocks - July

    There are a number of great companies in the market today. By using the ModernGraham Valuation Model, I've selected 10 undervalued companies for the Enterprising dividend stock investor. These companies have the highest dividend yields among the undervalued companies reviewed by ModernGraham, which are suitable for Enterprising Investor according to the ModernGraham approach.

Each company suitable for the Defensive Investor is also suitable for Enterprising Investors.

  • Can Twitter Dig Itself Out of the Hole?

    Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) has lost a lot of shine in social media circles, especially from an investor’s point of view. There was a time when Twitter and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) used to be in the same sentence when investors discussed social media. Then Facebook started moving at breakneck speed, increasing its product portfolio, revenues, user base - and most importantly, its bottom line profitability.

    Twitter’s revenue grew as well, from $28 million in 2010 to $2.2 billion in 2015, but its losses widened, too, from $67 million to $521 million during the same period. Facebook on the other hand reported $17.92 billion in revenues in 2015 with nearly $3.7 billion in profits.
