    European stocks: Brief weekly Overview

    This Friday, European stock markets were ready to break a four-session win streak. The optimistic economic data was overshadowed by persistent worries about rising COVID-19 cases in the U.S.

    The eurozone June Composite PMI was at 48.5, from 31.9 in May.

    U.S. markets will be closed on Friday for the Independence Day holiday, keeping volumes pinned down in Europe.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 index SXXP, -0.55%, dropped 0.1% to 367.89, on the heels of a near 2% gain on Thursday. Meanwhile, during the week the index went up for a 2.7% gain.

The French CAC 40 PX1, -0.71%, and the FTSE 100 indexes UKX, -1.16%, fell 0.4% and 0.3%, respectively, while the German DAX 30 index DAX, -0.37%, was flat.

    The euro-area Market Services PMI for June came in at 48.3. However, more dramatic gains were seen in Spain, where the services PMI jumped to 50.2 from 27.9.

    What were other stocks up to?

    U.S. stock futures were barely higher, outside of a 0.2% addition for NASDAQ-100 futures, after unassuming increases for those business sectors on Thursday. Meanwhile, NQ00,  was at -0.07% after a record finish for technology stocks, though there were more modest gains for the Dow DJIA, +0.35%, and S&P 500 SPX, +0.45%, on Thursday.

    Among stocks moving, the shares of Delivery Hero DHER, +4.43%, bounced 5% higher during positive news. The delivery platform stated that order numbers grouped in the second quarter bounced up 94% from a year ago. Shares of Land Securities Group LAND, +1.46%, rose 2.5%.

  • BlackBerry (TSX:BB): Is the Stock a Buy in 2020?
    05 July 2020

    BlackBerry(TSX:BB)(NYSE:BB) stock has been getting renewed interest in recent years. After crashing and burning as smartphone maker, it pivoted to software and saw some success in that industry.

    In fiscal 2020, BB brought in $1.04 billion in revenue compared to $904 million in 2019. Also in 2020, the company increased its gross margin to $763 million from $698 million. Note that “fiscal 2020” here basically means 2019: the company’s full-year reporting period ends in February.

    BlackBerry’s growth in recent years has been driven by strong enterprise software offerings. Considered purely as products, these have been undeniable successes: the company’s car software runs on 150 million vehicles, and its software revenue has increased reliably since 2018. However, the company still lost money in its most recent quarter and fiscal year. So, the earnings picture remains mixed.

    Depending on how things play out, BB could become the stock market turnaround story of the decade. But will it?

    A successful pivot to software

    A lot of people are optimistic about BlackBerry, because its software offerings have undeniably been successful. As previously mentioned, the company’s QNX software runs on 150 million cars, and its overall software revenue has increased for several years in a row.

    Additionally, BB has locked down several high-profile customers for its enterprise software, including CP Railway, the American Red Cross, and several Canadian police departments. The latter is especially encouraging, because government contracts tend to be stable and backed by tax revenue and generous budgets.

    Earnings results

    Despite BlackBerry’s product success, its earnings picture has been mixed. While the company’s revenue is on the rise, it isn’t consistently profitable. In its most recent fiscal year, BB lost $150 million on $1.04 billion in sales. The loss was largely due to amortization of intangibles: without that and goodwill impairment, the company was profitable. It reported $74 million in adjusted earnings for the year. It also reported $14 million in free cash flow.

    The first quarter of fiscal 2021 was similar. The company lost money in GAAP terms but reported positive adjusted earnings. The GAAP loss was primarily due to a massive impairment charge. The company did report a net cash outflow from operating activities. Overall, Q1 was not as good as the full year 2020. Still Cannacord Genuity called the results “solid.”

    Foolish takeaway

    BlackBerry is one of Canada’s most misunderstood tech companies. Many people still see it as a failed smartphone maker. In fact, the company is no longer even in the smartphone business. Instead, it has pivoted to software and is seeing success in that industry.

    For the past several years, BlackBerry’s software business has been growing at a steady pace. The challenge now is to turn that growth into profits. So far, the company has not been able to do that consistently in GAAP terms, but its cash flow and adjusted earnings are encouraging. Overall, it’s a stock that’s worth looking into.

  • 3 Stocks That Raised Dividends in June
    05 July 2020

    Income investors who rely on stable and steady dividends in retirement haven’t had much to cheer about recently. Dividends stocks have been highly volatile, and investors are rightfully nervous. However, there is some good news. For the first time since the pandemic began, dividends are stabilizing. This means that we are seeing fewer dividend cuts and more dividend raises.

    In fact, June saw the first case of a company returning to dividend growth after announcing a cut only a couple of months earlier. Today, we’ll focus on this good news, as we recap the companies that raised dividends in June.

      Old New Percentage Date
    Arc Resources (TSX:ARX) $0.02 $0.06 200.00% 06/12/2020
    B2Gold (TSX:BTO)(NYSE:BTG) $0.01 $0.01 100.00% 06/12/2020
    Empire Company (TSX:EMP.A) $0.12 $0.13 8.30% 06/18/2020
    A Canadian Dividend Aristocrat

    In June, there were several Canadian Dividend Aristocrats scheduled to raise dividends. Unfortunately, only one came through for income investors — Empire Company. Empire is the first Aristocrat to raise the dividend since early May, and the next batch of raises from this group will not come until August.

    It is not surprising that the company was able to announce a dividend raise in this environment. As one of the largest grocery chains in the country, it is an essential service. 

    The 8.30% raise extended the company’s dividend-growth streak to 26 years, which is tied for the seventh-longest streak in the country. This makes it one of the most reliable dividend stocks in the country. 

    A cheap gold stock

    The gold industry is definitely the place to be at the moment. Analysts are calling for gold to break all-time-high records, and $2,000 gold by the end of year is possible. Given strong gold prices, producers such as B2Gold are returning to dividend growth. 

    B2Gold only recently began paying a dividend, with its first payout occurring last November. Less than a year later, and B2Gold doubled the dividend from a penny to $0.02 per share. Worth noting, B2Gold pays the dividend in U.S. dollars. 

    This senior producer is on pace to reward investors for years to come. It is growing production, reducing costs, and, at today’s gold prices, is generating significant cash flows. Gold companies are quietly becoming reliable dividends stocks. 

    A surprise raise

    In mid-March, Arc Resources was one of the first TSX-listed companies to cut the dividend. At the time, it slashed the dividend from $0.05 to $0.02 per share — a 60% cut. Less than two months later, it shocked the markets when it declared a dividend of $0.06 per share. 

    Not only did this represent a 200% raise, but it is also higher than the pre-pandemic dividend. It is the first company to announce a dividend raise after cutting or suspending the dividend at the height of the pandemic. Will others follow suit? It is too early to tell, but Arc’s raise is certainly a positive development.

    However, investors should approach with caution, as the company isn’t out of the woods just yet. Approximately three-quarters of production is tied to natural gas. Although the price of natural gas has bounced off March lows, it began crashing again in June. So long as spot prices remain below $2 per million BTU, Arc’s dividend is far from safe. 

    Are these dividend stocks buys today?

    Give our current environment, both Empire and B2Gold make for excellent dividend stocks. They are defensive in nature and should continue to do well in light of the current volatility. Furthermore, both are likely to outperform if we see another wave of the pandemic wreck havoc on the economy. 

    For its part, Arc Resources remains a speculative investment. The price of natural gas is still facing considerable headwinds and is trading near decade lows. Until the fundamentals improve, the company’s stock is only for high-risk investors.

  • Investing $1,000 in These 3 Top TSX Stocks Would Be Genius Right Now
    05 July 2020

    It might seem like the worst is behind us. After a market crash in mid-March, with markets falling about 40% between the end of February and March, shares have come roaring back. But in the past week or so, there has been a levelling off across the board. It could be that economist predictions are coming true: another market dip is coming.

    While it’s unlikely to be as bad as the first one, another dip in the markets means you should be packing your portfolio. It’s the best time to take a good hard look at your portfolio and sell while the market is level, reinvesting in bargain blue-chip companies.

    So if you have even just $1,000 to invest, I would consider these three top stocks.

    Bank on a bank

    The first stock you should consider right now are bank top stocks. Canada’s Big Six Banks fared as some of the best in the world during the last financial crisis more than a decade ago. Today, while banks will see losses, those losses are backed by trillions in assets. Many prepared for the inevitable, including Royal Bank of Canada(TSX:RY)(NYSE:RY).

    Royal Bank is Canada’s biggest bank by market capitalization, with a solid history of growth and dividend payouts. The company’s earnings weren’t great for the second quarter of this year, but weren’t terrible either. Net income was down 54% compared to the same time last year, with credit losses reaching $2.83 billion, an enormous increase.

    However, despite net income being down, there was still income coming in. In fact, despite the pandemic the bank increased its dividend.

    Royal Bank’s dividend has increased 108% in the last decade, for an average of 10.8% per year. Right now, investors can bring in a 4.64% dividend yield, with a payout ratio of 53.78% as of writing. That’s solid, stable income you can bring in and reinvest to your portfolio. Holding onto a stock like this for decades means you can bring in significant, practically guaranteed cash.

    Defensive dividends

    Your portfolio should always have some defensive stocks in there, and one you should definitely look at are utilities. No matter what happens in the economy, everyone needs to keep the lights on. So buying up utility companies and holding them for decades practically guarantees stable growth. Sure, you won’t see sudden jumps in share price, but you won’t see crashes either.

    That makes Fortis Inc. (TSX:FTS)(NYSE:FTS) the perfect buy today. The markets have gotten this stock wrong. It started shrinking again like the rest of the markets last month, but for no good reason.

    The company’s earnings remained strong for the last quarter, with net earnings coming in at $312 million. The company’s five-year capital plan remains unchanged, aiming for $18.8 billion and dividend growth.

    So right now, you get a discounted stable stock with a 3.72% dividend yield. That dividend has grown 70% in the last decade, while shares have grown about the same at 72%.

    Top growth

    You’ll also want a nice growth stock at a time like this, and that’s where a stock like WPT Industrial REIT (TSX:WIR.U) comes into play. The tech industry, specifically e-commerce, has been getting a lot of attention during this market downturn. Many e-commerce stocks have soared to all-time highs while the rest of the markets sunk lower.

    But one area that seems to be forgotten are REITs like WPT Industrial. This stock is perfect for those wanting to take advantage of a growing industry while also bringing in dividends.

    WPT Industrial provides light industrial properties to e-commerce businesses that need to store and ship from its locations. The company now has 102 properties in its portfolio, and continues to acquire more. It isn’t witnessing any shrinking during the downturn.

    That includes its earnings, which grew almost 30% during the last quarterly report. Its dividend yield remains strong even now, with the company offering a 5.89% dividend yield to investors. Shares are almost at pre-crash levels, while others sink yet again.

    For more cheap options to buy on the next dip, here are some to consider!

  • TFSA: 2 Canadian Stocks to Build You a Tax-Free Fortune
    05 July 2020

    The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is an invaluable tool that allows Canadians to unlock the power of long-term tax-free compounding. For younger investors like millennials, who have decades to contribute to, and invest with their TFSAs, it’s just a matter of time before one has a tax-free fortune that will allow the financial freedom for one to hang up the skates early.

    It sounds overly simplistic, but all you need to do is stay the course with a disciplined investment strategy and invest your TFSA proceeds systematically, rather than trying to time a “perfect” entry into the markets.

    While there are a plethora of things to worry about, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, escalating U.S.-China trade tensions, and the U.S. federal election, you must remember that at any given instance there will always be something to worry about.

    But it’s times when nobody else is worrying when you should start asking questions. And when everybody is overly worried, you should think about getting that much greedier by buying a bit more stock than you normally would.

    This piece will have a look at two solid stocks that TFSA investors should think about buying together. One stock weighs down the “risk-on” half of a TFSA barbell portfolio, and the other “risk-off” name balances it out.

    Without further ado, consider buying Jamieson Wellness (TSX:JWEL) and Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO)(NYSE:BMO) together if you’re looking for a way to mitigate the risks brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Jamieson Wellness: Low-risk growth at its finest

    For the risk-off part of your barbell TFSA, Jamieson Wellness is a solid bet. The nearly-century-old vitamins, minerals, and supplements (VMS) maker has seen its sales hold up quite well amid the pandemic as people become more health-conscious amid the unprecedented public-health disaster that is the COVID-19 pandemic.

    No, Jamieson doesn’t have the secret pill to immunize you from COVID-19. But what it does have are a slew of wonderful VMS products that will see steady demand through the duration of this pandemic. As a publicly traded entity, the company now has deep enough pockets to invest in innovative new products to find a spot with certain age groups.

    The green-capped brand is unmistakable, and with a nice marketing budget, the Jamieson brand has arguably never been this powerful, and it’s in a spot to strengthen further.

    Add the secular tailwind of the aging Baby Boomer population and the growth to be had from an expansion into China into the equation and it becomes more apparent that Jamieson is a low-risk growth stock that TFSA investors should feel comfortable popping in their portfolios.

    Jamieson trades at a modest 3.9 times book with a low 0.58 three-year beta that can help ground your TFSA in these volatile times.

    Bank of Montreal: TFSA income for cheap

    The banks have been complete duds lately. While most other industries have already enjoyed a significant relief rally from the coronavirus crash, Bank of Montreal and most of its peers are still in limbo, barely participating in the latest upward rally in the broader TSX Index.

    This pandemic has wreaked havoc on the economy, with a bias toward the smaller and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the energy sector, retail, leisure, travel, real estate, and the financials.

    While many mega-caps have rolled with the punches amid this unprecedented crisis, few smaller firms have been able to with balance sheets that now find themselves on unstable footing. This weakness has spread to the banks that have been making loans to those SMBs in affected industries and select larger firms within the energy patch.

    Bank of Montreal had its fair slice of loans to SMBs and big-league O&G firms, and it’s been facing considerable pressure as its provisions swell. While there’s no telling whether or not the worst is over, stock like BMO makes sense to own if you’re willing to invest for decades at a time.

    Why? The stock trades at an 8% discount to book and offers a sustainable 5.9% dividend yield that will pad your TFSA as you wait for the economic tides to turn.

    Speaking of wonderful businesses, check out these picks curated by the team here at the Motley Fool Canada.

  • 2 Top Bank Stocks Millennials Should Be Buying Today
    05 July 2020

    It hasn’t been the easiest of years to endure for Canadian investors. Aside from a couple of tech companies hitting all-time highs amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of industries have seen performance significantly drop this year.

    The Canadian market had a very strong year last year, as the S&P/TSX Composite Index grew by more than 15%. This year, the same index is down about 10% year to date. I’ll also add that at one point, the market was down by 35% this year.

    How have bank stocks fared?

    Banks stocks have not performed particularly well this year. Each of the Big Six banks are trading to similar levels, or worse, to the broader Canadian market. Although the major Canadian banks have gone on an impressive run since a March 23 low, tech stocks have received the majority of investor attention during this market surge that we’ve witnessed over the past three and a half months.

    With that in mind, there are definitely a couple of reasons why I believe bank stocks are a great buy today for the long-term investor. For millennials or any other investor with at least a 10-year horizon, I’ve reviewed two top Canadian banks and highlighted why I think each is a buy today.

    Toronto-Dominion Bank 

    Canada’s second-largest bank, Toronto-Dominion Bank (TSX:TD)(NYSE:TD), is valued at a $110 billion market cap. The bank predominantly provides personal and commercial banking in both the U.S. and Canada. TD now operates more than 1,000 branches spread across North America.

    The U.S. exposure is one of the biggest growth components for the future of the bank. Still very early in its U.S. expansion, TD is already ranked as a top 10 bank in the U.S., based on total asset size. Today, the majority of TD’s U.S. locations can be found on the east coast, leaving plenty of growth still ahead for the bank on the west coast.   

    Year to date, TD’s stock price is down by more than 15%, which is worse off than the broader Canadian market. As a result, the valuation of the bank is very attractive today. The bank is now trading at a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 10.6.

    Bank of Montreal

    At a market cap of $45 billion, Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO)(NYSE:BMO) is the fourth-largest bank in Canada. BMO specializes in providing personal and commercial banking, in addition to wealth management.

    Performance year to date has been worse than TD, as BMO is down more than 25% this year. As a result, BMO’s valuation is looking even cheaper than TD’s. Forward price-to-earnings is at 8.9 today, but it’s the price-to-book ratio that emphasizes how low the valuation really is. The price-to-book ratio sits below 1 today, in comparison to 1.25 for TD.

    BMO boasts a very impressive dividend, paying an annual payout of $4.24 per share. At today’s reduced share price, that payout is equal to a yield of 5.9%.

    The bank also owns an extremely impressive dividend streak. For more than 180 years now, BMO has been paying out dividends to shareholders. While the dividend growth may be slowed during economic downturns, investors can be fairly confident that they will still receive a dividend no matter how bad it gets in the market. 

    Foolish takeaway

    Bank stocks may not seem like the most appealing buy today, but there are a couple of reasons why I believe long-term investors should consider picking up shares at these discounted prices. 

    The low valuation and reliable dividends are two main reasons why I like Canadian banks today. In the short term, they may trail the market, but if you’re willing to hold for the long-term, I believe you’ll benefit from market-beating returns.

  • Got $50,000? Buy These 4 Stocks to Retire in 10 Years or Less
    05 July 2020

    A combination of growth stocks could allow you to retire within 10 years. All you need is a little capital (say, $50,000) and careful planning. Here’s a two-step strategy that could help you retire early if you’re young or secure your future if you’re starting late.

    Growth stocks

    The minimum amount you need to retire is $500,000. In fact, my Fool colleague Nelson Smith dug into the numbers and discovered that half a million could provide a stable retirement for nearly every Canadian. So, the first step is to meet that benchmark. 

    If you’re starting off with $50,000 in savings, you need a ten-fold return to meet this goal. That implies an annually compounded growth rate of 25.8% or higher. Plenty of technology and growth stocks exceed this benchmark. Here’s a list:

    • Dollarama (27% CAGR since 2009)
    • Constellation Software (38.9% CAGR since 2013)
    • Shopify (37.9% CAGR since 2015)
    • WELL Health Technologies (125.8% since 2016)

    So, a tenfold return within 10 years is certainly possible. Probably the best sector for this pace of growth is technology. Three out of the four growth stocks mentioned above are tech stocks. The smallest one delivered the best returns. 

    Focusing on smaller, relatively-unknown growth stocks is still a winning strategy. Here’s a list of four growth stocks that could exceed 26% CAGR over the next 10 years:

    WELL Health Technologies is quickly gaining traction in the telehealth sector. As doctors and patients worldwide realize that remote medical care is both cost effective and more convenient, I expect this growth stock to rapidly boom. Currently worth $370 million, this stock could be worth 10 times as much if it expands to the United States and gains a fraction of healthcare market share. 

    Maxar Technologies has been steadily declining for years and is now too cheap to ignore. Space technology is one of the few industries I can think of with infinite potential. Maxar is a clear leader. It’s been building satellites and gathering images from low-earth orbit for years. A turnaround in its balance sheet could unlock billions in value. 

    Absolute Software and Open Text are both top picks for the robust enterprise software market. Open Text’s endeavours in artificial intelligence research could propel the growth stock to new heights. Meanwhile, Absolute’s cybersecurity solutions face relentless demand and the stock price doesn’t reflect this growth potential.

    Each of these stocks is focused on cutting-edge technology and is based in an industry with massive potential. I believe at least one or more of these stocks could be multi-baggers in the years ahead. By splitting your $50,000 investment between these stocks you could drastically improve your chances of an early retirement. 

    Bottom line

    If you have just $50,000, you could secure a comfortable retirement in ten years or less. All you need is a few savvy growth stock picks. Growth stars such as Maxar and WELL Health are on my radar for the next decade.

    A portfolio of emerging technology stocks and underrated growth stars could deliver a 10-fold return in less than a decade.

  • 2 TFSA Stocks to Buy Right Now
    05 July 2020

    It’s always a good idea to avoid investment taxes. Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) make that easy, shielding your capital from both capital gains and dividend taxes. But not every investment makes a good TFSA stock. You’ll want to choose carefully.

    For example, let’s say you chose to invest in Enbridge Inc due to its 7.8% dividend. With a TFSA, that payout is completely tax free. Yet over the past eight years, the share price has been stagnant. So you used your unlimited tax savings potential on a measly 7.8% annual return.

    Now look at a company like Shopify Inc, which doesn’t pay any dividends at all. But due to rapid sales growth, the stock price has increased 40 times in value since 2015. A $5,000 investment would have become $200,000. With a TFSA, you wouldn’t pay a cent on those gains.

    The best TFSA stocks are those that give you the most capital upside. That’s the most effective way to use your tax-advantaged superpowers.

    This is a perfect example

    Maxar Technologies (TSX:MAXR)(NYSE:MAXR) is involved in some of the most exciting tech of the century: space equipment. It’s responsible for much of what we send into space, including radar, sensors, satellites, and imaging devices.

    The space race has just begun. Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk are pouring billions into the industry. Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc, which is pioneering space tourism, has seen its stock double in recent months. Maxar is in the right place at the right time.

    There’s one problem: It’s still recovering from an accounting scandal from 2018. Before that trouble began, shares were trading above $100. Now, they’re worth only $25. Betting on a rebound is what makes this the perfect TFSA stock.

    Customers are clearly over the company’s previous missteps. Last month, it secured a $23 million contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and won a four-satellite order from Intelsat, which operates the world’s largest integrated satellite and terrestrial network.

    As Maxar stock recovers, there could be another 300% in long-term upside. TFSA holders should take a close look.

    This best TFSA stock?

    Hexo Corp. (TSX:HEXO)(NYSE:HEXO) should top the buy list of TFSA investors. With a market cap of just $400 million, this pot stock should eventually garner a multi-billion dollar valuation.

    Why is Hexo so promising? It’s all about the long-term strategy.

    In 2018, pot stocks were flying off the shelves. Nearly every marijuana company saw its valuation double, triple, or even quadruple. They all rushed to bring massive amounts of supply online.

    By 2019, the party ended. That’s because investors realized that it took more than production figures to turn a profit. Cannabis businesses needed to figure out how to brand their output to create pricing power. Hexo understood this early. That’s why it’s such an appealing TFSA stock.

    Rather than focus on pot production, Hexo dedicated resources to building long-term partnerships. Its deal with Molson Coors Canada Inc., for example, should launch a co-branded THC drink this year.

    Ask yourself what is more likely to succeed: a pot beverage from Molson Coors, or a competing product from an unknown cannabis startup? Hexo is betting on the former.

    If you want to capitalize on the recreational pot opportunity, Hexo should be your top choice.

    The list below includes our best TFSA stocks to buy right now.

  • 2 Stocks That Could Tap Into the Billion-dollar Market for Face Masks
    05 July 2020

    Believe it or not, face masks could be a billion-dollar opportunity. Countries across the world have made it compulsory to wear a face mask indoors where physical distancing is impossible. That means the world needs roughly seven billion masks over the next year.

    In fact, analysts estimate that global face mask sales crossed US$74.90 billion in the first quarter of 2020 alone. Demand could be even higher if there’s a second wave of coronavirus cases or a viable vaccine isn’t developed in time. 

    Some of Canada’s top retail companies already stock these masks and have the ability to tap into this billion-dollar market. Here are two retailers who could add millions to their top line over the next year. 

    Canadian Tire

    Canadian Tire (TSX:CTC.A) saw sales of N95, KN95, P2 and medically certified spike during the first few months of the outbreak. In fact, the company attracted plenty of criticism for raising the price of these face masks when they were in limited supply. Eventually, the company set up a relief fund and donated protective gear to those on the frontlines of this crisis.  

    Now, the company’s average face mask costs between $1 and $10. With supply chain issues resolved, these critical accessories are now fully stocked across the country. If demand for these face masks remains elevated throughout 2020, Canadian Tire’s revenue should be noticeably higher for the year. 

    The stock has lost roughly 16% of its value year to date. It now trades at an enterprise value-to-revenue ratio of 1. The stock also offers a 3.8% dividend yield. That seems like an attractive valuation for a company that provides an essential service during this crisis. 

    Aritzia

    Unlike Canadian Tire, Aritzia’s (TSX:ATZ) face masks are not industrial-grade or medically certified. Instead, they’re fashionable, which is equally important for most consumers. The company currently has a cotton face mask listed for $10. Aritzia generated $980 million in revenue last year, so selling millions of these masks should move the needle.

    Aritzia’s stock is up roughly 80% since mid-March. As the company’s online sales boom and stores reopen across Canada, investors could expect a sustained recovery. Face mask sales could add incremental value. Currently trading at just 23 times annual earnings, this growth stock seems fairly priced. 

    My Fool colleague, Robin Brown, dug into the numbers and believes Aritzia stock is “too cheap to miss.” In fact, the only other stock he recommends in that article is Canadian Tire, which bolsters my conviction in these two picks. 

    Bottom line

    A face mask could be essential throughout 2020. Many provinces and cities have made these accessories mandatory. That’s a grim reality. As millions of Canadian stock up on reusable and industrial-grade masks throughout the year, the market could be hundreds of millions domestically. 

    Retailers such as Aritzia and Canadian Tire already have these masks on shelves, which should enhance sales and add value for shareholders.

    Investors may be underestimating the size of the face mask market. That could present an opportunity for savvy investors with these stocks on their radar.

    On that note…

  • Opinion on my Signify N.V. (LIGHT.AS) stock analysis
    05 July 2020

    Recently I started investing and I want to know if my analysis of this company is as bright as I think it is. It is an European stock. As far as my knowledge goes, they are looking very good:

    Price: 23.45 EUR
    P/E ratio: 11.9 vs 23.5 (industry)
    D/E ratio: 1.06
    Forecasted ROE: 13%, current ROE: 10.7%
    Current ratio: 1.55
    Annual historical earnings: 7.5%
    Annual forecasted earnings: 22.8%
    PEG ratio: 0.5
    P/S ratio: 0.49
    P/B ratio: 1.3 vs 2.3 (industry)
    Insiders bought 112.5k shares past 3 months

    Main concerns is that its a relatively inexperienced board with average of 2.3 years.
    They also have negative growth and less profit, but that's due to COVID.

    Am I missing something here and/or did I make a rookie mistake?

  • Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Monkey Bread
    05 July 2020

    Dessert That’s Ready For Any Occasion Without The Fuss

    Making this simple Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Monkey Bread was a joint effort and a recipe that I know you’ll love.

    I was first introduced to the monkey bread recipe from my sister-in-law who says she makes it often.

    “Monkey Bread is a simple recipe that I can make when guests are coming over or for the holidays”, she says.

    She makes certain variations of this sweet bread depending on the holiday or time of year.

    For example, during Thanksgiving, she rolls the cinnamon bits into a pumpkin sugar rather than cinnamon sugar.

    There are only 6 monkey bread ingredients that you’ll need to have on hand to make this delicious recipe.

    The great thing about this monkey bread recipe is how versatile it is to accommodate different flavour and texture portfolios.

    My First Monkey Bread

    While visiting after Covid-19 restrictions allowed for up to 5 family members to be together we made monkey bread.

    This was the first time I had been exposed to this recipe although I had heard of it before.

    What is Monkey Bread?

    That’s exactly what I had asked her and she graced me with a simple explanation.

    This is a cinnamon roll based pull-apart bread that is drenched in glaze and a buttery caramel throughout.

    The picture says it all and trust me I know because I ate half of it.

    I kid you not, I could not stop pulling apart cinnamon roll bits from the monkey bread and before I knew it, half was gone.

    The texture was moist like you’d expect from a Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Roll but it was the extras that stood out.

    While cinnamon rolls are delicious adding extra cinnamon sugar and buttery, caramel sauce marries the flavours perfectly.

    Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

    Can you make monkey bread from scratch?

    Of course, you can if you have the time to make homemade cinnamon rolls and then follow the next steps in the monkey bread recipe.

    Not everyone has access to pre-made cinnamon rolls at the grocery store but homemade cinnamon rolls are easy to make.

    However, I’m going to bet if you can make homemade cinnamon rolls you’ll love this monkey bread recipe even more.

    Cost To Make

    At $3-$4 for one Pillsbury Grand cinnamon roll tube(You’ll need two), this monkey bread recipe will cost around $10-$12 to make.

    By the time you add the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and pure vanilla extract it’s still an inexpensive holiday recipe.

    “I typically make the monkey bread recipe for Christmas morning to serve with coffee while we open gifts”, she said.

    Nothing smells better than cinnamon roll smells during the morning hours in the house. Nothing.

    Well, maybe apple cinnamon rolls or apple pecan cinnamon rolls.

    Pull-Apart Monkey Bread Variations

    To switch up the monkey bread recipe you could add;

    Related: The Best Homemade Apple Cinnamon Rolls

    Add even more flavour with blueberries for a cinnamon roll blueberry monkey bread.

    Or, consider adding toppings to dip using your favourite homemade jams.

    See, this is the type of recipe that everyone should stash away because you can always add to it.

    Keto Monkey Bread Recipe

    I’m also betting that if you make a gluten-free, keto cinnamon roll recipe that you could do the same thing using keto-approved ingredients.

    Even pouring hot keto cinnamon condensed milk over the top instead of the icing would work great.

    If you make the condensed milk recipe and continue to cook it you’ll find it turns to a golden caramel sauce.

    Monkey Bread Muffins

    “Another one of our favourites is making monkey bread muffins for Sunday morning breakfast”, she says while gobbling another piece with me.

    Line a muffin tin with paper muffin cups and add 3 or 4 cinnamon roll balls and drizzle with the caramel and bake.

    I suppose you could also use a 9×13 baking pan and line the bottom of it with the cinnamon rolls and drizzle with the cinnamon sauce.

    Again, this monkey bread is a recipe that you can go wild with and make it your signature classic.

  • Ethereum – Market Analysis

    On 15th June I wrote an analysis on Patreon about how Ethereum might play out over the weeks heading into July.

  • Gold and stocks: Something’s gonna break
    05 July 2020

    We are witnessing an unprecedented conflict in the data from commodity and stock markets. Judge by yourself.

    The behavior of the VIX futures (implied volatility) on the first chart is clearly bullish for stocks in the short term.

     

    This has been confirmed by the breakout in copper as a procyclical base metal.

     

     

    And here is another breakout, this time in the very important stocks/bonds ratio.

     

     

     

    It seems to be clear…and yet it is not.

    Let start with the ratio of high beta to low volatility stocks which expresses the willingness of investors to buy riskier stocks. It’s been very reliable indicator of the shape of the stock market over the past months. And surprisingly, there is a strong divergence right now, suggesting an increasing aversion towards risk.

     

     

    Then there is the rapidly worsening market breadth. Stock indices are held up by a low number of the largest companies.

     

     

    The high yield corporate bond market is not comforting either. There is a negative divergence with stocks since the beginning of June.

     

     

    What does it mean? Which indicators are right and which are gonna fail? If you expect an easy answer, I will disappoint you. If it was clear, the markets would have taken that into account and discounted it in the price already.

    Nevertheless, some information can be extracted from this data. If we stick to statistics and quantitative approach, we can assemble 3 scenarios of the short-term future and identify which one is the most probable.

    However, the key fact is that this situation can lead to emergence of an interesting opportunity. It wouldn’t be in stocks but in an entirely different market. It is gold, which is also showing conflicting signals, similar to stocks.

     

     

    How to spot this opportunity? And which scenario in the stock market is the most likely? You’ll find out in today’s video analysis in the Research section of the SpreadCharts app.

  • Smart Thought Of The Week: Hong Kong
    05 July 2020
    Warren Buffett said: “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently” It is a pity the Hong Kong administrators didn’t consider Buffett’s sage words before kowtowing to the wishes of Beijing. Perhaps it is past caring, anymore. But in the […]

    Whenever there’s an economic ideology that is gaining traction, I try to keep an open mind about it and stay abreast.
