Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

The second quarter is turning out to be a really strong quarter overall. The broad trends are pretty clear from here with the S&P 500 (as a representative group) showing big revenue increases and smaller earnings beats than we have been seeing of late.

But some companies have stood out from the rest, reporting record revenue and earnings with more to come. And this has happened despite the supply-side constraints because demand has been overwhelmingly strong.

The delta variant remains a concern however, which could be why some stocks are still undervalued. And to be undervalued on the basis of earnings growth is actually an investment opportunity.

Here are a few examples-

    Current subsidies in China were reduced by 20% in 2017 and will be reduced by 40% in 2019 and 100% by 2021. China’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) credit system was announced on September 28, 2017, and will begin in 2019 with 10% of credits (12% in 2020) required from new energy vehicles (NEVs). That translates to ~4-5% of EV sales as market share for 2019. We also are expecting an announcement at some stage as to when China will ban ICE vehicles, noting BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) Chairman Wang thinks by 2030. Others think it will be 2035.

    The pace of consolidations of Chinese rechargeable battery cell companies is accelerating. We made an assertion in our previous report that, with a few exceptions (CATL, BYD), most Chinese names would be consolidated due to the change of subsidy policy by Beijing, and that the industry is likely to become more oligopolistic. It appears that this trend is becoming more pronounced. According to SNE Research, the combined market share of CATL and BYD in the Chinese EV battery market has grown from 43.9% in 2017 to 63.6% in 1H18. China’s subsidies are mostly for high- performance rechargeable batteries, and the NEV credit system, which was implemented this year, is designed to give more credits to companies that use high-performance rechargeable batteries. As such, high-end rechargeable batteries are likely to drive demand, but realistically only CATL and BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) have the capacity to make these batteries in China.

    Consider Ecolab (NYSE: ECL). Back in July 2006, the water treatment and industrial sanitation specialist offered a meager 10-cent quarterly dividend, barely enough for a payout of 1%. But the distribution rose by double-digits in 2007, and again in 2008, and it has continued to climb every year since.

    Last year, Ecolab (NYSE:ECL) had to navigate headwinds including global currency fluctuations made worse by a strong U.S. dollar, rising delivery costs, and volatility in energy markets. The business attempted to offset cost increases by improving operating efficiency and increasing selling prices, but those efforts weren’t enough to stop fourth-quarter operating income from sliding 4% compared to 2017. Revenue increased 3% year over year.
