Top Ranked Articles

Brandes Investments Comments on Chesapeake Guru stock highlight
The uncertainty with Chesapeake (NYSE:CHK) is (and has been) the natural gas price. We believe that supply and demand warrant a much higher price than the current sub-$2 per mmBtu level (currently even lower in Pennsylvania where Chesapeake has a significant percentage of its acreage), likely in the $4-$6 range in the medium to long term. At the current natural gas price, producers are cutting capex significantly, which could ultimately impact the supply of natural gas. The path of natural gas prices is uncertain with a lag between capex cuts and changes to production levels. At higher long-term price levels we believe that Chesapeake’s enterprise value would be substantially more than what was valued by the market. Read more...
Brandes Funds Comments on Publicis Guru stock highlight
Publicis (XPAR:PUB) is the world’s third-largest global ad agency holding company, with many valuable brands such as Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, Razorfish, ZenithOptimedia, and Starcom MediaVest. Publicis has historically been a well-run company with a sound balance sheet and industry-leading margins. Read more...
Brandes Investments Comments on Total Guru stock highlight
We purchased France-based Total (NYSE:TOT), a vertically integrated oil company operating at all levels within the oil & gas industry, including exploration & production as well as refining & marketing. We had owned Total in the past and sold it in 2014 after the company had several positive developments. However, over the past year the stock declined significantly with the fall in oil prices and has traded near book value. We believe the company has positive attributes, including: Read more...
Brandes Funds Comments on Embraer Guru stock highlight
Brazilian regional jet manufacturer Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) also weighed on returns as the real’s appreciation presented a headwind for the company, which derives the majority of its sales outside Brazil. Moreover, Embraer’s 2015 earnings indicated margin compression and the company issued guidance that was lower than market expectations. Pressure on the defense segment also hurt performance. Read more...
Brandes Funds Comments on Barclays Guru stock highlight
Barclays (LSE:BARC) declined as it announced a dividend cut and a rationalization of some of its businesses in efforts to focus on its core U.K. and U.S. markets and improve its capital position. Trading at 50% of tangible book value at quarter end, Barclays offers, in our opinion, an attractive risk/reward tradeoff as we believe it should see the benefits of its restructuring over the next couple of years.
