Today's Top Ideas

Released at 5:00 am, May 12. 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. Children's Place (Long, Value): With Children's Place shares trading at a low EBITDA multiple, Ascena Retail has become a natural acquirer. Even on a standalone basis, low valuation and a potential turnaround makes PLCE a buy, writes Investing 501.
  2. ChipMOS (Long, Value): Valuable Insights returns to the IMOS table, citing the company's continued discount to fair value, strong performance in its end-markets, and likely margin growth as value drivers.
  3. Asia Standard (Long, Deep Value): Hong Kong property fears have overshadowed HKG:0129's fine performance, leaving shares at a significant discount to book value even on a historical basis, writes New Capital.
  4. Biglari Holdings (Long, Sum Of The Parts): BH lost a proxy battle with CBRL, but may end up winning the war, writes Alpha Gen Capital. Operational improvements at the restaurant chain and BH's other holdings could drive 30%+ upside.
  5. Songa Offshore (Long, Debt Refinancing): SONG.OL's nightmarish 2013 is over, and after refinancing its debt and refocusing its operations on mid-water drilling, there is now room for a turnaround, writes Street Smart Investor.
