In this post, we break down diversification and how many stocks you need in your portfolio to be well rounded, based on real statistics. We also talk about the "Holy Grail" of investing, which has to do with diversification, of course.
Hey everyone, it’s Vince and Andre.
As you probably already know, we’re two brothers who talk about stocks. We’ve been investing since 2014 and have been through a lot of ups and downs. We’re currently bloggers for Seeking Alpha and TipRanks, and now Substack.
Previously, we had written an article on SmartCentres Real Estate Investment Trust (OTCPK:CWYUF) where we estimated a 34% upside for the stock. Since then, the price has appreciated 29.45% at the time of this writing. When including dividends, the total return has been 36.18% compared to the S&P 500's return of 24.64%. Going forward from here, it may not continue outperforming the S&P 500. In this article, we will update the company's valuation. Risks and growth catalysts remain the same as our previous article and suggest checking it out for more detail on the company.
*This is a premium seeking alpha article, so we can’t fully post it here.*
An often overlooked metric when it comes to stocks is the cash conversion cycle. This metric only applies to companies that carry inventory, such as grocery or apparel, but it is important in measuring a company's efficiency. In this post, we'll explain "What is the Cash Conversion Cycle?" and why it's important, as well as showing some stock performance data for stocks that have a good CCC compared to stocks with a relatively worse CCC.
GFL Environmental Inc (NYSE:GFL), is the fourth largest diversified environmental services company in North America. We believe the company to be reasonably priced despite being an aggressive bet relative to its peers.
Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has seen a hefty pullback recently after guiding for slower growth in the third quarter. The market seems to be focusing on the e-commerce slowdown despite having another potential trillion-dollar business hiding within the company. We are referring to Amazon's real money maker, AWS which we covered recently in a previous article. We suggest taking a look if you're interested in learning more about AWS and why we think it's a major growth catalyst for the company. In addition, we cover the main risks involved in holding Amazon's stock.
Tesla Inc (TSLA) is an industry disruptor that has been responsible for the shift towards electric vehicles from other carmakers. As a result, competition has been heating up for Tesla with Ford Motor Company (F), along with others, trying to make a splash in the EV market. In this article, we will be quantitatively comparing Ford to its main competitors: Tesla, General Motors Company (GM), Toyota Motor Corporation (TM), Honda Motor Co Ltd (HMC), and Volkswagen AG (OTCPK:VWAGY).
SEMrush Holdings (SEMR) is a solid growth company that is trading at a reasonable price. In addition, the company is well positioned to benefit from the continued shift to e-commerce.
Currently, there are plenty of uncertainties going around. During times of uncertainty, it's good to take a step back and search for stability. Waste Connections (WCN) is a great place to start. However, its stability isn't cheap.
Cricut, Inc. (CRCT) had a very strong second quarter. Revenue increased 42% compared to the same quarter in 2020. This is very impressive because the 42% is on top of the 149% increase the company saw in 2020 over 2019.
Previously, we had written an article titled, Facebook: The Best 'Fangma' Stock To Buy Right Now, Quantitatively Speaking. We highlighted some major factors that separate Facebook Inc. (FB) from the rest and suggest you check it out. Although we performed a relative valuation for all six companies in that article, we wanted to write a follow-up to calculate the intrinsic value of Facebook. Facebook is currently undervalued using projections that are based purely on fundamental factors.
Deere & Company (DE), is a great company that has performed exceptionally well in the past year. It has a reputation of being innovative and its recent acquisition of Bear Flag Robotics demonstrates why. Despite this, now might not be the best time to buy.
Vimeo, Inc. (VMEO) is a recent spinoff from IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC). Generally speaking, when investors hear about Vimeo, their minds instantly go to YouTube (GOOG). Both companies have video-sharing platforms for content creators. However, the way Vimeo makes money is not 100% comparable to YouTube. Despite being significantly smaller, Vimeo is seeing great momentum and monetizing in a different way than YouTube. Vimeo is a very solid company with business metrics that are trending in the right direction.
Leaders lead, and Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) is definitely a leader. The market's second most valuable company by market cap is still currently undervalued. In this article, we will perform a discounted cash flow analysis to calculate the company's intrinsic value.
Google's parent company Alphabet Inc. (GOOG) (GOOGL), is the definition of a tech heavyweight. However, under current market conditions, the company is very undervalued despite its dominance and growth potential.
Here's our most recent report on Corsair Gaming stock (Ticker: CRSR). Check it out!
PayPal Holdings (PYPL) is a great company that may appear overvalued when looking at valuation multiples. However, it's not as bad as it may appear since the company generates a lot of cash. In this article, we will perform a discounted cash flow analysis to calculate the company's intrinsic value. In addition, we will highlight some important risk factors and growth catalysts that could have an impact on the company's performance.
Netflix Inc (NFLX) has the potential to perform well. However, we highlight what you need to consider before jumping into the stock. We base our forecast purely on the company's fundamentals. By doing so, we are able to point to the specific growth drivers rooted in numbers as opposed to perceived potential. In addition, we believe that Netflix's margins will expand going forward. Using the fundamentals allows us to more reasonably estimate the company's margin expansion.
Domino's Pizza, Inc. (DPZ) is a stable and predictable pizza industry leader with a great long-term track record. The pizza industry is fragmented which means that the company's size and brand recognition provide it with a competitive edge over the majority of its rivals. Domino's will continue to see strong growth going forward, fueled by its ambition to continue opening many more stores.
Plenty of great articles have been written about what Etsy Inc (ETSY) does and what catalysts can drive its growth, as well as the risks that are associated with the company.
In this article, we want to focus more on the deep potential value hidden in Etsy from a purely fundamental point of view, rather than talk about things that have already been talked about.
