by: SA PRO Editors

Today's Top Ideas

Released at 5:00 am, May 2. PRO subscribers get an exclusive early look at these ideas for 24 hours. Top Ideas often move stocks during the initial 72 hours after publication.

  1. Automodular Corporation (Long, Event/Special Situations): AMZKF appears headed for a liquidation by year's end, with a projected 24% return to shareholders at its current price. Litigation against GM provides upside optionality, writes Alec Mazo.
  2. Allied Irish Banks (Short, Event/Special Situations): Night Heron notes that AIBYY trades as a regular ADR, but its assets are not what investors think. With the ADRs backed only by modest cash and a small amount of AIB shares, 30% downside seems possible.
  3. Spartan Energy (Long, Transformative Acquisition): SPE.V's new management team comes with a stellar track record (generating 6750%+ compound returns across its last three entities), and the acquisition of another outfit's undervalued wells could be the next notch in their belt, writes buysider Josh Young.
