Navellier Top % Stocks for June

The following is provided by Navellier with technical comment from South Ocean Management – pls do your own due diligence.
(For this 2020 year, SOM will track only the Top 5 Hi-Growth Investments.)

Navellier says,

High-Growth Investments

Dexcom, Inc.

Dexcom, Inc. (DXCM) is a medical specialties company that developed a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device. Its device enables diabetics to test their blood glucose levels without pricking their finger. Despite this innovative technology, Dexcom has been flying under the radar—until recently. On May 12, Dexcom replaced Allergan in the S&P 500, giving it a lot more visibility with institutional investors.

Institutional investors are clearly excited about Dexcom’s fundamentals and prospects going forward. The stock has rallied more than 20% in the past four weeks alone. Interestingly, DXCM is actually up 85% year-to-date, which makes it the best-performing stock in the S&P 500 right now.

The reality is that Dexcom has seen an increase in demand for its CGM devices amidst the global coronavirus pandemic, and that was apparent in its recent quarterly results. During the first quarter, revenue jumped 44% year-over-year to $405.1 million. First-quarter earnings surged to $41.4 million, or $0.44 per share, up from a loss in the same quarter a year ago. Analysts were expecting earnings of $0.14 per share, so Dexcom posted a whopping 214.3% earnings surprise.

Looking forward, Dexcom anticipates that even more patients will benefit from its virtual diabetes care and real-time monitoring. The company expects more patients will switch to telemedicine in the wake of the coronavirus, which will continue to add to Dexcom’s top and bottom lines. DXCM is an Aggressive buy below $465.

Fortinet, Inc.

Fortinet, Inc. (FTNT) recently achieved a significant milestone. The company’s FortiProxy secure web gateway solution, which protects against malicious websites, viruses and traffic, received Department of Defense Information Network (DoDIN) Approved Products List certification. In other words, Fortinet products can now be used by Department of Defense agencies.

The Department of Defense joins more than 450,000 customers that rely on Fortinet to protect their businesses from cyberthreats. The company has shipped more than 5.6 million units since its founding in 2000, which has supported significant top and bottom line growth over the years.

In the first quarter, Fortinet reported that revenue increased 22% year-over-year to $576.9 million. Product revenue accounted for $192.3 million, and service revenue totaled $384.6 million. The company also recorded total billions of $667.8 million, up from $551.6 million in the first quarter of 2019.

First-quarter earnings grew 29.2% year-over-year to $104.4 million, while earnings per share rose 30.4% year-over-year to $0.60. The consensus estimate called for earnings of $0.51 per share on $556.69 million in revenue. So, Fortinet posted a 17.6% earnings surprise and a 3.6% revenue surprise. FTNT is a Moderately Aggressive buy below $159.

SOM Technicals:

5-22-20:Closed at 142.64. Trade pressures are down into the neutral zone. Volumes are bullish. In the move up but the next short entry is 136.78.

 

 

NVIDIA Corporation

NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) develops graphic processing units (GPUs) that are used in video games, professional visualization, data center and automotive applications. The company has been in the computer graphics business for more than two decades—and it’s been one of my favorite stocks to own in the space.

In fact, long-time Growth Investor members probably recall that we sold NVIDIA back in January 2019 for a more than 270% gain. We bought the stock back in May 2019 to further take advantage of the company’s efforts in the artificial intelligence space, as it’s at the forefront of helping to develop autonomous vehicles. That turned out to be a very timely decision; NVDA has more than doubled for us in the past year.

The reality is that NVIDIA still has stunning earnings and sales. In fact, on Thursday afternoon, the company released results for its first quarter in fiscal year 2020. The company reported earnings of $1.80 per share on $3.08 billion in revenue, or 105% annual earnings growth and 39% annual revenue growth. The consensus estimate called for earnings of $1.68 per share and revenue of $2.98 billion, so NVIDIA posted a 7.1% earnings surprise and slight revenue surprise.

NVIDIA also noted that it completed its acquisition of Mellanox Technologies Ltd. on April 27. The deal was valued at $7.0 billion, and will further add to the company’s top line. For the second quarter, which takes into account the recent acquisition, NVIDIA expects revenue to be about $3.65 billion. That’s nicely higher than analysts’ current expectations for $3.15 billion. NVDA is a Moderately Aggressive buy below $402.

SOM Technicals:

5-22-20: Closed at 361.05. Trade pressures are up.  Volumes are bullish. The next target up is 364.40.

 

ResMed, Inc.

ResMed, Inc. (RMD) was added to the High-Growth Investments Buy List in the March Monthly Issue, just ahead of the coronavirus pandemic. The stock turned out to be a very fortuitous addition to the Buy List. The reality is that ResMed provides CPAP masks, machines and other life support ventilators for in-home use, so its products have been in top demand in recent months.

In fact, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, ResMed amped up its ventilator production. The company produced more than 52,000 non-invasive ventilators, which represented a 300% year-over-year increase. ResMed also recently introduced cloud-based, remote monitoring software to help doctors keep an eye on their patients who typically need regular checkups.

So, it’s not too surprising that ResMed achieved stunning earnings and sales results for its third quarter in fiscal year 2020. Third-quarter revenue grew 16% year-over-year to $769.5 million, and earnings increased 44.9% year-over-year to $1.29 per share. That exceeded analysts’ expectations for earnings of $1.04 per share and revenue of $722.52 million.

I should add that ResMed continues to reward its shareholders. The company will pay a quarterly dividend of $0.39 per share on June 18. All shareholders of record on May 14 will receive the dividend. The stock has a 1% dividend yield. RMD is a Conservative buy below $169.

Vipshop Holdings Ltd.

Vipshop Holdings Ltd. (VIPS) is an online discount retailer of consumer goods in China. The company offers brand-name products at bargain prices, and its discount model has attracted many loyal Chinese customers over the past 12 years. At the end of fiscal year 2019, Vipshop had 69 million active users.

Adding to Vipshop’s popularity is that fellow ecommerce companies Tencent (TCEHY) and JD.com (JD) purchased stakes in the company in 2017. This investment has funneled even more Chinese consumers to Vipshop’s online marketplace.

Vipshop Holdings is scheduled to announce first-quarter results before the stock market opens on Wednesday, May 27. The analyst community is looking for earnings of $0.11 per share and revenue of $2.54 billion, which compares to earnings of $0.17 per share and revenue of $2.99 billion in the first quarter of 2019. VIPS has posted a positive earnings surprise in each of the last four quarters, and I’m expecting a repeat performance for the first quarter. VIPS is an Aggressive buy below $17.

Navellier says,

High-Growth Investments

Brown & Brown, Inc.

Brown & Brown, Inc. (BRO) is the sixth-largest insurance brokerage in the U.S., with more than 290 locations. Insurance isn’t a very sexy business, but Brown & Brown’s business model is very attractive—and it’s added to its top and bottom lines over the years. Simply put, Brown & Brown focuses first and foremost on its customers and protecting their most-valued assets.

Brown & Brown is scheduled to announce first-quarter results after the closing bell on Monday, April 27. The consensus estimate calls for earnings of $0.46 per share on revenue of $682 million, which represents 13.4% annual revenue growth and 12.2% annual earnings growth.

Analysts’ earnings estimates have remained steady over the past few months. The company has posted a positive earnings surprise in each of the last four quarters, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Brown & Brown exceeds analysts’ expectations again. BRO is a Conservative buy below $37.

DexCom, Inc.

DexCom, Inc. (DXCM) has been a solid performer for us, up more than 156% since we added it to the High-Growth Investments Buy List in December 2018. The reality is that DexCom has cornered a very lucrative market: continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). The company’s CGM technology enables a diabetic to test their blood glucose levels without pricking their finger.

Strong demand for its products and services have driven DexCom’s sales and earnings growth over the years. In fiscal year 2019, the company achieved 397.3% annual earnings growth and 43.7% annual revenue growth.

DexCom will post earnings and revenue results for its first quarter in fiscal year 2020 on Tuesday, April 28 after the stock market closes. First-quarter earnings are expected to surge 380% year-over-year to $0.14 per share, up from a $0.05 per share loss in the same quarter a year ago. Analysts have upped earnings forecasts over the past three months, which means a fifth-straight quarterly earnings surprise is likely. Revenue is forecast to increase 28% year-over-year to $358.94 million. DXCM is an Aggressive buy below $381.

Microsoft Corporation

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) is a big-name technology company that’s most well-known for its Windows operating systems. There are currently more than 900 million devices utilizing the latest Windows operating system, Windows 10. And, amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the company’s Microsoft Teams platform has enabled businesses to work remotely together, with group chats, video meetings, calls and collaborative workspaces.

Company management noted that it’s seen a dramatic increase in demand for Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365, as businesses around the world enabled their employees to work remotely. Microsoft Teams has also helped many schools and universities better connect students and educators.

Still, Microsoft stated that interruptions to supply chains due to the coronavirus likely impacted the company’s top and bottom lines in its third quarter in fiscal year 2020. Analysts, however, have actually increased earnings forecasts over the past three months. The current consensus estimate calls for earnings of $1.24 per share, or 13.2% annual earnings growth.

We’ll have a clearer picture on Microsoft’s fundamentals on Wednesday, April 29, as the company is scheduled to announce third-quarter results. For now, the company is benefiting from an influx in buying pressure and strong top- and bottom-line growth. MSFT is a Conservative buy below $182.

SOM Technicals:

ResMed, Inc.

ResMed, Inc. (RMD) is a leading provider of respiratory solutions, as the company offers CPAP devices and other life support ventilators in more than 120 countries around the world. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, ResMed is planning to double, and possibly triple, its production of ventilators and ventilation masks. These efforts are aimed at aiding in treatment of patients diagnosed with the coronavirus—and should also add to the company’s top and bottom lines.

ResMed is set to report earnings and sales for its third quarter in fiscal year 2020 after the stock market closes on Thursday, April 30. The company is expected to report earnings of $1.05 per share, or 18% annual earnings growth, and revenue of $720.4 million. Analysts have also upped earnings forecasts over the past three months, which bodes well for a fifth-straight quarterly earnings surprise.

I should also add that ResMed continues to reward its shareholders with quarterly dividends. Most recently, the company paid a dividend of $0.39 per share on March 19. RMD has climbed nicely higher with other dividend stocks recently, jumping 48% in the past five weeks. RMD is a Conservative buy below $169.

You may recall that Vipshop Holdings is an online discount retailer of brand-name consumer goods. And the company has a very loyal following, with 69 million active users.

Vipshop Holdings is expected to announce results for its first quarter in fiscal year 2020 in mid-May—and analysts are expecting another blowout quarter. Earnings estimates have been revised a stunning 242.3% in the past two months alone.

Overall, the analyst community is looking for earnings of $0.89 per ADS and revenue of $18.3 billion. That represents 512.6% annual revenue growth and 423.5% annual earnings growth. VIPS is an Aggressive buy below $18.
