|Written by Rob Goldman|
There are only 4 trading days this week so we thought we should provide you with 4 stocks you can’t pass over. These four stocks are in the consumer space, specifically leisure/vacation and include some seriously high-priced and high valuation names that have rocked along with 2 low-priced listed stocks that are household names.
With the start of summer just 8 weeks away, now is the time to hop on board.
Don’t Pass Over This
In honor of the upcoming Passover holiday, we are taking a new tack with The Goldman Guide this week. Consider this issue: all stock picks all the time.
During the course of the week we provide you with stock picks that we believe will have some big moves in the near term. These daily blogs profile listed stocks trading between $3.00—$10.00 and we have had some unreal success stories. From time to time we provide you with sponsored research coverage of emerging growth and low-priced stocks that offer substantial upside with speculative risk. Our last 4 picks have performed very well. Each month, we provide our premium subscribers with a product that has produced 13 stocks that have risen 30% within an average of 48 days and include a stock on NASDAQ that is up over 400% since our original profile. Each week, via The Goldman Guide, we produce what could be called a review and comment on the market and the economy and some forward-looking insights to prepare you for what is on the horizon.
So today, it is only fitting that we focus on some big cap and big-$ stocks that we think can put some extra coin in your pocket. The theme with most of these picks is seasonality and how to take advantage of it with some consumer stocks and technology.
Before we get into the specifics found on the next page, let’s take a quick look at our thesis. Springtime is here and somehow someway the consumer is not dead, despite elements of inflation, and sequestration issues. Retail investors receiving their statements are just flat our rejoicing in the Q1 market jump and will likely continue to pile in with more money. Fund managers have finished their window dressing and will keep their focus on the best performing stocks. While we are leery in general of earnings pre-announcements beginning next week, we do not think these puppies will be on that list.
Four Vacation Stocks
Few of us are taking vacations at this time of year. But, oftentimes stocks that are in what would classify as leisure or casual dining stocks tend to make a little bit of a run, ahead of the Memorial Day weekend—-which is the unofficial start of summer vacation. For those of you familiar with our Market Monitor (daily blog) picks, we are sneaking in a couple low-priced ones over the border that we have successfully profiled before, along with 2 new names.
High Valuation Could Mean High Returns
The stock is also a great value based on projected EPS and revenue (8x FY13 EPS and a fraction of $8.4B in revenue vs. its sub-$300M market cap.). This could be a great play ahead of travel season and a general rebound in the trucking industry. We think a $12.00 price target is achievable in 2Q13.
Recap: How Did You Do With Your Bracket?
We had the entire Midwest region called right, but only Ohio State correct in the West. Ouch. Three out of four for the South wasn’t bad too, though Georgetown hurt us and many others. If Butler would have held on we would have had that entire region correct as well. All in all, 11 out of 16 of the Sweet Sixteen are not too bad.
Our picks for the Final Four are slightly changed. We like: Indiana, Louisville, Michigan, and Ohio State.
Until next week….
