  • Barron’s Summary May 28, 2011  0 comments
    May 31, 2011 9:21 AM | about stocks: AMZN, FL, MOS, NTAP, PSMT, TJX, YHOO


    ·         Greece – Barron’s recommends a 50% haircut to Greek debt and urges policymakers to take action immediately.  Otherwise the country’s economy will continue to shrink and the consequences will only become more dire.  A 50% haircut now will avoid larger restructurings later.

    ·         Europe – a Greek debt restructuring would be painful but not catastrophic; Athens will prob. receive a maturity extension first and then a haircut in a couple yrs.  Portugal will prob. require a similar action.  The rest of the peripheral economies will prob. be able to muddle through.  The ECB will have to hit up its members for more capital.

    ·         TJX – the stock could top $60 in the 12 months as int’l expansion is stepped up and HomeGoods is grown further.

    ·         ECF Value Fund – interview – positive on Nortek (NTKS), FTK, CPRT, DDE.

    ·         PSMT – positive comments on the “Costco of the Caribbean” – growth is rising strongly; the co has a small store base w/a lot of opportunities ahead of it.  Margins and growth are faster than its US peers.

    ·         NTAP – pos. comments; says is an inexpensive play on the cloud (says RAX, CRM are expensive). 

    ·         4G wireless – investors are focused on stocks involved in 4G wireless, inc. AGO, NETL, and SQNS.

    ·         AMZN – the co will prob. become a larger force in the publishing industry.

    ·         YHOO – cautious comments; the stock is fully valued at current levels; talk w/Yahoo Japan on monetization are far from being completed; meanwhile there is added political risk w/Alibaba.

    ·         MOS – pos. long-term comments; valuation is cheap and the co has a robust balance sheet.  Many of the downside risks seem priced into the stock.  MOS could become a takeover candidate.

    ·         Ryanair – pos. comments; payments for new aircraft will fall substantially in ’13 and as a result cash flow will spike.  The co could earn 40% of its market cap in free cash flow in the next three years.  The co could start raising ticket prices.

    ·         Platinum, palladium – pos. comments on both; as the global auto industry starts to improve manufacturing, both metals could benefit.

    ·         FL – pos. comments; the stock could pull back a bit in the near-term but has upside to $30+ eventually.
