Fundamentals of Long Distance Shooting
Summertime, and the Stock Prices Get Easier
Registered investment advisor sees market fluctuatiing around Dow 12,000 this summer, climbing in the fall to a 10-15% gain for 2020. Names specific long range buys, two new short-term buys.
Informed forecasts like those from the Federal Reserve and IHS Global Insight see higher growth in the second half of this year. This is encouraging and will soon be tested, as we are now entering the second half of the year. July brings early indications when the first fruits of the second quarter earnings reports appear. These are likely to meet or even exceed expectations but nervous investors will take their cues from comments on the earnings outlooks for the second half of the full year.
June busted out all over pushing the market down 5%. That still leaves it up 2% for the year to date although recent swings have not been that kind to individual stocks that miss their marks. Overall, stock prices have not caught up with earnings gains since 2020, leaving stocks reasonably valued.
Stocks that make up the S P; 500 are currently trading at 14.5 past earnings, well below the historic average of 20. Analysts currently estimate rising earnings for the full year decreasing this ratio of 13, close to bargain basement levels. Something has to give and I expect analysts will lower earnings estimates for a minority of stocks. The market will bounce around Dow 12,000 all summer but I still expect 10-15% gains for 2020.
We are in the third year of a solid market climb and scattered weaknesses are normal as the air gets thinner. Trading also gets thinner during the summer. I expect economic growth to become more visible in the fall as the economy works through transitory issues such as the impact here of the earthquake shutdowns in Japan.
Oil prices are currently sliding, which may ease some consumer concerns. House prices haven't found bottom yet but the summer selling season should increase sales volume, possibly reducing unsold inventories. With the stock market likely to remain volatile, I urge investors to try to buy on the dips and sell on the bounces, rather than yielding to emotional pressures to do the reverse.
Interest rates are still clinging to the shallow end, magnifying the value of dividends. Combining these factors suggests large companies with rising earnings and increasing dividends. Proven winners include Bristol-Myers (BMY-$29), Bunge (BG-$65), DuPont (DD-$51), IBM (IBM-$166), Intel (INTC-$22), Int'l Flavors amp; Fragrances (IFF-$62), 3M (MMM-$92), Merck (MRK-$35), Novo-Nordisk (NVO-$118) and Syngenta (SYT-$66).
Even without any energy stocks, which I'll address in another column, that's a nice portfolio. Yield is around 3% and growth above 10%. Still, summer is for fun, too, and nimble investors might nibble short-term morsels.
China Mobile (CHL-$46), China's largest mobile carrier, has over 600 million subscribers. It would have more had the Chinese government not forced it to use an obsolete home grown 3G system in order to boost competitor China Unicom. Unicom is currently the only provider of Apple's iPhone and the accompanying hysteria popped its stock ahead of China Mobile. CHL has three times the number of customers and has a new 4G network coming online in 2020. Best yet, rumors abound that it is nearing a license for a new iPhone model. The P/E is only 10, the yield 4% and rumors alone should make it a summer treat.
Small companies also have their place and FEI Co. (FEIC-$36) is an exceptional growth stock. It makes extremely sophisticated electron microscopes that can see down to atomic levels. All major semiconductor makers are customers. The company has been diversifying from this sector to natural resources, including energy exploration. Earnings should almost double this year to about $2.25, a low valuation if it makes this target. Taking half positions now before its next earnings release is a smart tactic.
