Best of PRO Research

A look at some of the best recent additions to our Research Library as chosen by our PRO editorial team:

  1. Dex Media: Wavelength Asset Management updates its bullish thesis on DXM, discussing strong recent results and pointing out continued in strength in bond prices, which appeared to play out in this week's earnings report.
  2. Permian Basin Royalty Trust: The Forensic Accountant digs deep into PBT and says it may make a great speculative trade, but likely remains a poor long-term investment.
  3. Manitowoc: Stephen Simpson, CFA adds to his continuing coverage on MTW, noting that its recent quarter appeared to lag peers and its valuation may be getting stretched.
  4. Hyperdynamics: Michael Cutler notes that while HDY's recent press release related to the lifting of Tullow's force majeure appears to be a positive, a closer look suggests there are still many outstanding concerns.
  5. Valeant and Allergan: Fund manager Paul Nouri looks at Valeant's strategy and what that means in light of the Allergan offer, finding that a reliance on non-GAAP earnings may come back to bite VRX.
