SHU Portfolio: Why We Just Bought Lumentum

December 18th, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio: Why We Just Bought Lumentum

Finisar, one of the stocks in our SHU portfolio, rallied 28% on a substantial investment from Apple. Shares in Lumentum sold off heavily on this news. We think that sell-off in Lumentum is overdone and bought these shares as well for the SHU portfolio. We’ll explain why. Source: SHU Portfolio: Why We Just Bought Lumentum […]

SHU Portfolio: Finisar Struggling Short-Term, But Longer-Term Outlook Intact

December 11th, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio: Finisar Struggling Short-Term, But Longer-Term Outlook Intact

The only misbehaving share in our SHU portfolio produced disappointing results. But there was also relief that the company is finally shipping significant quantities of VCSELs. While the longer term outlook is bright, the real fun for the shares is likely to be three-four quarters away. Source: SHU Portfolio: Finisar Struggling Short-Term, But Longer-Term Outlook […]

SHU Portfolio: Why We’re Buying Apple

December 11th, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio: Why We’re Buying Apple

We’re considering buying Apple for the SHU portfolio and give you our considerations here. We think that the tailwinds are still likely to exceed the headwinds, the most important of which is the saturation in the smartphone market. As tailwinds, we’ll discuss the economic moat, the rising service income, the cash flow and possible tax […]

SHU Portfolio: JD.Com – Fast Growth, Increasing Margins

November 21st, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio: JD.Com – Fast Growth, Increasing Margins

The shares of JD.com are plagued by bouts of worries about increasing competition. We believe that competition has always been a feature of the Chinese market, and JD.com has been thriving nevertheless. So we suggest investors concentrate more on growing revenues and margins, and the fairly modest value of the shares. Source: SHU Portfolio: JD.Com […]

SHU Portfolio: Value Versus Growth Stocks

November 9th, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio: Value Versus Growth Stocks

We’ve mostly avoided growth stocks on a valuation basis in an already expensive and extended market. Given their high valuation, many growth stocks are liable to sudden big downdrafts on unfavorable news. But value and cyclical stocks are not immune to this either, and the latter bring the additional complication of timing. Source: SHU Portfolio: […]

Skechers: Acquire On Weakness

October 30th, 2017 · Comments Off on Skechers: Acquire On Weakness

While Skechers shares jumped 40% on a single day after very good third quarter results, they might have to digest that jump a little. However, the shares are still very reasonably valued and there are multiple potential drivers taking it higher. We would recommend aggressive buying on softness.

October 30th, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio: What To Buy Next

Here are two stocks with catalysts. First Solar is likely to benefit from possible protectionism in its home market as a result of the Suniva/Solarworld case. Finisar is benefiting from 3D sensors and is well positioned for a Chinese demand recovery. Source: SHU Portfolio: What To Buy Next – Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ:FNSR) | Seeking Alpha

October 27th, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio, We Want To Buy More JD.Com

The shares aren’t expensive and off 20% from their August highs. The main worry is the intense competition in the Chinese market. But JD.com is addressing that problem, and there are important tailwinds. Source: SHU Portfolio, We Want To Buy More JD.Com – JD.com (NASDAQ:JD) | Seeking Alpha

Portfolio Hedging With TAIL ETF

October 26th, 2017 · Comments Off on Portfolio Hedging With TAIL ETF

We’ve sprinted out of the gate in the three weeks since we started the SHU portfolio (up 10%). However, we’re aware of the long stretch without any correction and fairly stretched valuations. So, we’re looking at ways to hedge, and we found an interesting ETF that does just that. Source: Portfolio Hedging With TAIL ETF […]

SHU Portfolio Risk Corner: 2 Small Commodity Plays

October 26th, 2017 · Comments Off on SHU Portfolio Risk Corner: 2 Small Commodity Plays

For the speculative corner of the SHU portfolio, we’re considering two small resource plays, AVZ Minierals and Madalena Energy. Small resource plays are inherently risky as this is a very capital intensive business, much better suited to well capitalized, bigger companies. So these companies are basically moonshots. Nevertheless, both have interesting licenses. Source: SHU Portfolio […]
