DXC Technology Still Has Gas In The Tank

October 20th, 2017 · No Comments

  • The shares are still cheaper than most of the competition.
  • However, given the shrinking revenues there is some justification for that. It remains to be seen whether management can grow revenues again.
  • Cost cutting and synergies from acquisitions are providing substantial earnings growth, added by deleveraging and buybacks.

The Uber Economy

October 20th, 2017 · No Comments

  • Here is one reason why wages are not rising – the uberfication of the economy, which has actually preceded Uber for decades; outsourcing is very similar in its effects.
  • Structural changes like these have profound impacts on the prospect of wages, prices and hence monetary policy, bond yields and equity valuations.
  • But these effects are greatly modulated by the institutional and cultural surroundings.

Applied Optoelectronics: Some Stylized Facts To Keep Investors Grounded

October 19th, 2017 · No Comments

  • Applied Opto loses some $45M in revenues from Amazon in Q3, or half its prospective total revenues for the quarter.
  • Yet, it still manages to grow revenues at 25%+ with respect to last year’s third quarter, and the shares are cheap.
  • That is, not only has it fully replaced the lost revenues from Amazon, it has added another 25%.
  • The Amazon loss is transitory, and even if it’s not, revenue from it is just $8M-9M now.
  • Even if it lost all of that, which is highly unlikely, it wouldn’t mean much. More likely¬†Amazon demand will come back.

SHU Portfolio Hedging With Cash And The VIX

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

  • Starting a portfolio at record highs in the markets and after an already lengthy bull market producing extended valuations requires considerable care to manage the downward risk.
  • A main way of managing that risk is to have plenty of cash in the portfolio.
  • Here we also look at some use of VIX products, like futures and options, given the historic lows in the VIX.

A Tax Cut For Shareholders

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

  • The proposed tax cuts aren’t likely to do much for the economy or the middle class.
  • But they are an important factor in keeping the markets up and are likely to give the stock market another fillip.
  • One could have too much of a good thing though, tax cuts could very well put upward pressure on interest rates.

Inseego: An Interesting Turnaround Play

October 15th, 2017 · No Comments

  • We think INSG offers an interesting play on an ongoing restructuring.

  • We think both of these themes make the shares interesting, and the shares have been much higher in the past.
  • We bought 5,000 at $1.52 for the SHU portfolio on Thursday, per StockTalks.
