This is a good time to look at your holdings and weed out companies that have high debt, or are losing money, or both

Weeding isn’t just for gardens.

I recommend that investors weed their portfolios at least once a year.

Since the United States faces a recession – a stiff one, in my view – this is a good time to look at your holdings and weed out companies that have high debt, or are losing money, or both.

To be sure, such companies sometimes turn themselves around, and riding a turnaround can pay off handsomely. But in my judgment, this is no time for such brave tactics. This is a time to be a bit more conservative.

Here are four stocks whose

Tightening credit markets is a blessing for this industry

For over a month, U.S. equity market performance has been driven by Covid-19 fears. The global spread of the virus has pushed the American economy to a standstill, which is by no means good news for investors. However, the significant decline in stock prices and the increasingly tightening credit market for small and medium-sized businesses might benefit private equity firms that specialize in providing financing solutions to these markets. The underlying conditions are favorable for the growth of this industry, and investors have an opportunity to benefit by investing in the shares of publicly-listed private equity firms.

How does a

The company has been an acquisition target for a number of media players and is trading more than 30% below its expected acquisition value

Tegna Inc. (TGNA) came into the limelight earlier this month after receiving its first acquisition bid from Gray Television Inc. (GTN), which was followed by a series of bids from other media companies and investment funds owning media assets.

Given the strong consolidation in the TV stations industry in the U.S., the upcoming presidential election toward the end of 2020 and the huge discount on the stock owing to the coronavirus, it will be very interesting to see how Tegna’s bidding war shapes up.

What does Tegna do?

Focusing on the company's deleveraging efforts


Since Larry Culp took the helm, replacing John Flannery, as CEO of General Electric Co. (GE) in October 2018, many things have changed.

Let's take a brief look at what was achieved and announced in order to understand where we are with the deep restructuring process Culp and the board have been working on so far.

One of Culp's very first announcements on Oct. 30, 2018 was the reduction of the quarterly dividend to a penny from 12 cents per share.

On Feb. 25, 2019, GE announced its plans to sell its biopharma unit for $21.4 billion to Danaher

These companies' 2019 sales are higher than their market caps, providing value opportunities

In November 2019, an affiliate of Apollo Global Management (APO) outbid Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) to acquire Tech Data Corp. (TECD) for $5.4 billion.

The Oracle of Omaha notoriously dislikes being involved in bidding wars, and this case was no exception. After a single bid, Buffett bowed out of the attempted acquisition. However, the fact that he took an interest in the company at all is a sign that it was undervalued.

Tech Data is a major global provider of hardware in the tech industry. Without the glamour of cutting-edge consumer products or semiconductor development, speculators didn’t

There is a danger the stock markets are transforming into a system offloading risk to the public and becoming an exit vehicle, not a growth vehicle

"Today, the stock market has become a device to offload risk to the public market and cashing in -- it is an 'exit' not a 'growth' vehicle."

Capital markets are the essential tool to make capitalism work, and most importantly, work well. Keynes said that when the capital development of a country becomes a by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done.

The company's poor performance to start the year has corrected, and long-term outlooks remain strong

Apollo Global Management (APO), a private equity company with over $270 billion in assets under management, has suffered a loss of over 30% in stock price since Jan. 2. Investor sentiment is down, but the company’s long-term outlook remains promising.
