Navellier Top 8 Stocks for February

The following is provided by Navellier with technical comment from South Ocean Management – pls do your own due diligence.

Navellier says,

High-Growth Investments

CME description
CME Group, Inc.

CME Group, Inc. (CME) remains a Top 5 Stock for February as it continues to outperform the S&P 500. As we’ve talked about before, CME runs the world’s leading marketplace, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Simply put, CME Group dominates the world of options trading. In fact, its tagline is that it is “where the world comes to manage risk.” For those of you who aren’t as familiar with the CME, or “the Merc,” it trades several types of financial instruments: Interest rates, equities, currencies and commodities (like energy, agricultural products and metals). CME Group executes trades through its electronic trading platforms, and it also provides hosting, connectivity and customer support for electronic trading.

CME made a couple of records recently. It saw Asia Pacific average daily volume (ADV) increase 45% to 921,000 contracts in the fourth quarter. On a global scale, there was an 18% increase to 19.2 contracts ADV.

I expect this strength to be reflected in the company’s upcoming fourth-quarter report on February 14. Analysts are expecting earnings of $1.72 per share on revenue of $1.2 billion. This represents 53.6% annual earnings growth and 32% annual revenue growth.

In addition, the company continues to reward its shareholders. CME just paid a special dividend of $1.75 per share on January 16. All shareholders of record on December 10 should have received the dividend. Continue to buy this Conservative stock up to $199.

DXCM description
DexCom, Inc.

DexCom, Inc. (DXCM) is now officially a Top 5 Stock for two months in a row. I really like this company because it has been innovating the continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) industry. In case you are unfamiliar with CGM, it’s a technology that enables patients and their doctors to better manage diabetes.

With DXCM’s technology, a diabetic does not need to prick their finger to test their blood glucose levels. Instead, he or she inserts a small sensor under the skin. The diabetic will then be notified via a display device when their glucose levels are either too low or high. It’s simple, user-friendly and pain-free.

As the leader in CGM, DXCM offers a variety of products, including the Dexcom G6 CGM System, Dexcom G5 CGM System, Dexcom CLARITY, Dexcom Apps, Dexcom Studio and insulin pumps. These products have helped improve patient experiences, add real-time glucose data with alerts and alarms, share data and reduce costs.

Here’s the opportunity: The current CGM market includes six million people. That market will expand to 60 million people who suffer from diabetes, as CGM is expected to play a key role in helping to manage the disease. So, DXCM should see strong demand for its products and services going forward.

DXCM will release its fourth-quarter results on February 21. It has a strong history of beating estimates, and I expect this quarter to be no different. The Street view is for earnings of $0.17 per share, up 70% from last year’s $0.10 per share. Revenue is set to rise 35.6% to $299.67 million, up from $221 million last year. Earnings per share estimates have been revised higher in the past week alone, so a quarterly earnings surprise is likely. This Aggressive stock us a buy under $170.

FTNT description
Fortinet

Fortinet (FTNT) is a solid Top 5 Stock, as it’s set to benefit from a shift in leadership to cybersecurity companies. Fortinet provides unified security solutions that can be deployed over digital networks to protect users against malware, spam and network intrusions. The company provides its security solutions to data centers, enterprises, carriers and distributed offices around the globe. Fortinet currently boasts a portfolio of more than 530 patents worldwide.

Those security solutions have helped the company grow nicely. For the third quarter, it brought in $453.9 million in revenue. This represented a 21% increase over Q3 2017. This also beat the $450.9 million consensus estimate. Meanwhile, net income soared 120% year-over-year to $58.7 million, or $0.33 per share. Adjusted earnings came in at $0.49 per share. Analysts were expecting earnings of $0.42 per share, so Fortinet posted a 16.7% earnings surprise.

Earnings are expected to continue to climb in the fourth quarter. Results are scheduled to be released on February 6. Analyst expectations are for earnings of $0.52 per share on $496.4 million. This represents a 62.5% in average annual earnings and 19.1% in average annual revenue.

While FTNT has been volatile lately, the company’s long-term story remains intact. And strong fourth-quarter report should ultimately drive the stock higher. This Moderately Aggressive stock is a buy up to $82.

LULU description
Lululemon Athletica

Lululemon Athletica (LULU) has exhibited tremendous relative strength recently, so I continue to like it as a Top 5 Stock. Over the past two decades, Lululemon has led the athleisure fashion movement. Initially, LULU grew by word of mouth, pop-up shops in yoga studios and brand ambassadors. Lululemon has more than 400 stores across four continents. And for workout buffs who are too busy to drive to their nearest store, there are multiple Lululemon e-commerce sites and mobile apps.

Even as it has grown its global footprint and customer base, Lululemon has kept true to its founding values. It differentiates itself by making some of the highest quality and most comfortable workout clothing that money can buy.

The company is also expanding into mass sports distribution and capturing market share from big-name athletic apparel companies like Nike (NKE) and Under Armour (UAA). That expansion was reflected in Lululemon’s third-quarter earnings report, where it beat estimates on the top and bottom lines.

Company management expects to open six more stores in the fourth quarter, which should attract new customers. It is also working on expanding its outerwear line, building a bigger footprint outside of the U.S. and improve its website.

So, I’m anxiously awaiting the company’s fourth-quarter report. The consensus estimate calls for earnings of $1.74 per share on $1.15 billion in revenie, which translates to 23.5% annual revenue growth and 30.8% annual earnings growth. Earnings estimates have been revised 6.1 higher in the past two months, so a fifth-straight quarterly earnings surprise is likely. This Conservative stock is a buy below $170.

VEEV Description

Veeva Systems

Veeva Systems (VEEV) has been on fire since I recommended it in our January Monthly Issue, up about 30%. The company is a leading provider of cloud software solutions for the life sciences industry. Veeva System’s solutions help pharmaceutical and life sciences companies use cloud-based architectures and mobile applications for their businesses.

Today, VEEV offers a variety of cloud computing solutions that fall under the Veeva Commercial Cloud, a suite of multichannel customer relationship management (CRM) applications, and Veeva Vault, a cloud-based enterprise content management application for managing commercial functions. The company has a number of well-known clients, including AstraZeneca, Teva Pharmaceuticals and Bayer.

For the third quarter, Veeva System’s revenues rose 26.7% to $224.7 million, compared to $177 million a year ago. VEEV’s earnings increased from $0.25 per share to $0.45 per share – a whopping 80% year-over-year increase. These results came in well above analysts’ expectations for earnings of $0.38 per share on $216.2 million in revenue. This represents an 18.4% earnings surprise and 3.9% revenue surprise.

Company management will announce fourth-quarter results in late February, and earnings momentum is expected to continue. The consensus estimates are for earnings per share of $0.40, a 74% year-over-year jump from the $0.23 per share. Revenue should grow 22.7% year-over-year to $226.9 million.

I think the company could easily top estimates given the healthy double-digit growth in the healthcare computing industry. Its results have beat the Street view more than six quarters in a row, and odds are good we’ll see that again in the fourth quarter. This Moderately Aggressive stock is a buy up to $123.

SOM Technicals:

1-26-19: Closed at 109.22. Trade pressures are up. Volumes are bullish. At resistance . The next target up is 114.84.

Elite Dividend Payers

BGSF Description

BG Staffing, Inc.

BG Staffing, Inc. (BGSF) is back as a Top 3 Stock list this month. For more than a decade, BG Staffing has provided temporary staffing, including individual placements and turnkey solutions, for positions across the U.S. The company provides skilled office and maintenance personnel, IT professionals, administrative and clerical personnel, as well as finance and accounting professionals. BG Staffing is based in Plano, Texas.

Since its founding in 2007, the company’s business has rapidly expanded, thanks in part to strategic acquisitions. For example, in 2017, BG Staffing acquired Zycron, Inc., which is a leading provider of IT temporary staffing for companies in the southeast. The acquisition expanded BG Staffing’s reach to include Nashville, Memphis and Chattanooga, where Zycron’s offices were located.

The strengthening U.S. economy remains a good catalyst for BGSF’s future growth. It was reported last Friday that jobless claims fell to a five-week low. This means that companies are hiring more, which should directly benefit BGSF since its job is to supply skilled workers.

The company will report its fourth-quarter results in late January or early February. Earnings are expected to come in at $0.39 per share on revenues of $75.3 million. This a huge 490% increase from the $0.10 per share loss reported a year ago. Revenues are forecast to be slightly down year-over-year from $75.7 million.

Overall, BGSF’s earnings growth remains very strong, and the stock also carries a solid 5.4% dividend yield at current prices. Buy this Aggressive stock up to $26.

NSP description
Insperity, Inc.

Insperity, Inc. (NSP) is a repeat customer on the Top 3 Stocks list, and it’s no surprise as to why. As a quick refresher, Insperity offers full-service human resources solutions that range from health insurance options to payroll, accounting and benefits services to employee relations, workman’s comp and liability advice.

As with BG Staffing, Inc. (BGSF), NSP is set to benefit from the strong U.S. economy. This should be reflected in the company’s upcoming fourth-quarter results. The analyst community is looking for earnings of $0.65 per share, up 18.2% from the $0.55 per share earned last year. Revenues are expected to increase 16.1% year-over-year to $959.2 million.

Let me also say that NSP offers a modest 0.8% dividend yield, and has a 9.0% annual dividend growth rate. In addition, it’s maintained its strong dividend track record, rewarding shareholders for 55-consecutive quarters. With a good dividend history and potential for additional upside, buy this Moderately Aggressive stock up to $116.
