The Selloff In Tractor Supply Is Overdone

July 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

Tractor Supply shares crashed 50% since the beginning of the year. This seems an overreaction to what are mostly cyclical factors, although there are some mild structural ones at work as well. Still, the company is now at a historically low valuation on multiple metrics; we think the selloff has been overdone. Source: The Selloff […]

Microsemi Is Still Reasonably Priced

July 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

Difficult to find in an expensive market; a beautiful, well-run company that isn’t expensive. Its acquisition-based strategy is paying off pretty well, which is no mean feat. There is upside from some accelerating segments and financial deleverage. The company can also be a take-over target.

Nutanix On More Solid Ground After Q3

July 17th, 2017 · No Comments

Nutanix is the pioneer and leader of the hyper-converged infrastructure which enables companies to manage their on-premise and cloud applications on a single plane.

How Dangerous Is Emerging Markets Dollar Debt?

July 17th, 2017 · No Comments

Two decades after the Asian crisis, emerging markets have high levels of corporate debt and especially more dollar denominated debt. This makes them quite vulnerable to external shocks to earnings, currency movements and changes in interest rates. On the whole though, we haven’t reached the dangers of two decades ago, but one shouldn’t get too […]

July 12th, 2017 · No Comments

Whether the US labor market is tight or still has considerable slack is one of the most important economic puzzles right now. For instance, it determines whether the Fed should tighten further, or not, and this is likely to have a considerable impact on investor returns. We discuss some curious reasons behind the decline in […]

Could The Fed End The Stock Rally?

July 12th, 2017 · No Comments

The Fed could trigger a recession and a considerable stock market selloff if it tightens too much. We doubt there is much need for that given the fact that inflation is still very well behaved. In fact, in a world plagued by deflationary forces and high debt levels, a little inflation isn’t actually much of […]

Google’s EU Antitrust Case Could Just Be The Beginning

July 11th, 2017 · No Comments

Will Google be hobbled by the EU antitrust case and its massive fine? While we applaud policymakers who are at least willing to contemplate the consequences of what can only be described as an unprecedented amount of power, we do think this is very much yesterday’s battle. Much bigger battles lie in front of us, […]

A Synchronized Upturn In The World Economy

July 10th, 2017 · No Comments

While there is a sort of synchronized upturn in the world economy, this is likely to be as good as it gets. The longer-term outlook is one of diminished expectations, the result of adverse demographics and declining productivity growth. Only a sustained increase in investment can alter this picture.

Oclaro Is Undervalued

July 10th, 2017 · No Comments

Another optical network company with some transitory headwinds. The shares are cheap, margins and the balance sheet are very solid. Most of the headwinds from product migration should be behind us, leveraging any upturn in demand. Source: Oclaro Is Undervalued – Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLR) | Seeking Alpha
