Navellier Top Stocks for September

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

https://navelliergrowth.investorplace.com/

Navellier says,

High-Growth Investments

AutoZone, Inc. (AZO) is making its fifth-straight appearance on the Top 5 Stocks list this month. The leading retailer of automotive parts and accessories continues to benefit from the “do-it-yourself” trend, as more Americans look to perform their own automotive maintenance. And I suspect this will be apparent in the company’s upcoming earnings report.

AutoZone will release earnings and sales results for its fourth quarter in fiscal year 2019 on September 24. The analyst community expects earnings of $21.79 per share on $3.93 billion in revenue, or 10.5% annual revenue growth and 17.5% annual earnings growth.

Now, earnings estimates have fluctuated a bit over the past three months. But AutoZone has posted a positive earnings surprise in each of the last four quarters, and I expect this trend to continue. AZO is a Conservative buy below $1,177.

EEFT Top 5

Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (EEFT) was a new addition to the High-Growth Investments Buy List in the August Growth Investor Issue. If you recall, Euronet Worldwide is a payment processor that provides secure, convenient and affordable payment and transaction processing for consumers, financial institutions, retailers and service providers around the world.

For the second quarter, Euronet Worldwide posted double-digit earnings and sales growth, and as a result, analysts’ have upped fiscal year estimates recently. First, for the second quarter, EEFT achieved revenue of $691.9 million and earnings of $1.69, or 11% annual sales growth and 28% annual earnings growth. The consensus estimate called for earnings of $1.69 per share on $690.24 million in sales.

Looking ahead, analysts are expecting 11.5% annual sales growth and 26.4% annual earnings growth in fiscal year 2019. EEFT is a Conservative buy below $164.

NextEra Energy, Inc. (NEE) has been incredibly resilient during the market’s wild gyrations in August. The stock is up about 5% in the past five weeks. Clearly, the world’s largest utility company benefited from the extremely hot weather that plagued much of the U.S. and Europe this summer.

While these results won’t show up until the company’s third-quarter report, second-quarter earnings were also solid. During the second quarter, earnings increased 14.6% year-over-year to $1.33 billion, or $2.35 per share, topping estimates for $2.31 per share. For the third quarter, earnings are forecast to grow 4.1% year-over-year to $2.27 per share.

NextEra Energy is also a strong dividend play for us. The company recently upped its third-quarter dividend by 12.6%. NextEra Energy will pay a quarterly dividend of $1.25 per share on September 16 to all shareholders of record on August 29. The stock has a 2.2% dividend yield. NEE is a Conservative buy below $235.

Sun Communities, Inc. (SUI) also exhibited tremendous relative strength in August, climbing about 11% higher over the past five weeks. Sun Communities is a REIT that focuses on acquiring and managing manufactured homes and RV communities in the U.S. and Canada. The REIT owns and/or operates 379 communities, as well as has a portfolio of more than 132,000 developed sites.

Recently, Sun Communities announced its plans to acquire 31 manufactured housing communities for $343.6 million. The 31 communities are located in eight U.S. states and include 5,230 developed sites, as well as 460 expansion sites. The deal is part of the REIT’s merger with Jensen’s, Inc., which will become a subsidiary of Sun Communities when the acquisition is complete.

As a REIT, Sun Communities also has a long history of rewarding shareholders; it’s paid a quarterly dividend for 103-straight quarters. The REIT most recently paid $0.75 per share on July 15. The stock has a 2% dividend yield. SUI is a Conservative buy below $158.

UI Top 5

Ubiquiti, Inc. (UI), formerly Ubiquiti Networks (UBNT), rounds out the Top 5 Stocks list this month. As we discussed in the August 23 Weekly Update, Ubiquiti officially changed its name and symbol and started trading under them on the NYSE on August 20. The change was mentioned in the company’s recent earnings report and was likely due to a listing requirement for the NYSE. (The stock previously traded on the NASDAQ.)

Ubiquiti provides professional networking products around the world. In fact, the company ships about 85 million devices that are used to build network infrastructure in more than 200 countries and territories. So, it’s no wonder that Ubiquiti continues to grow its top and bottom lines.

In fiscal year 2019, Ubiquiti achieved earnings of $4.77 per share on $1.2 billion in revenue, or 29.3% annual earnings growth and 14.2% annual revenue growth. Looking forward to fiscal year 2020, analysts are forecasting 14% annual earnings growth and 9.8% annual revenue growth. UI is an Aggressive buy below $127.

Elite Dividend Payers

ABR Top 3

Arbor Realty Trust(ABR) is a REIT that primarily deals with loans and services for senior housing, multifamily housing, healthcare and other commercial real estate assets. The REIT services a multibillion dollar portfolio that includes real estate loans for several investors like Fannie Mae. In fact, Arbor Realty Trust has been a Top 10 Fannie Mae DUS Multifamily lender for more than 10 years.

And, as a REIT, Arbor Realty Trust continues to rewards its shareholders quarter-after-quarter. It has paid a dividend for 29-consecutive quarters. The company will next pay a dividend of $0.29 per share on Tuesday, September 3. All shareholders of record on August 15 will receive the dividend.

Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) remains one of my favorite Elite Dividend Payers, as the company continues to increase its quarterly dividend and boast solid top- and bottom-line growth. The Coca-Cola products distributor has paid a dividend for an incredible 126-straight quarters. The company’s next quarterly dividend will be paid on December 3 to all shareholders of record on November 19.

During the first six months of 2019, CCEP reported that revenue grew 7% year-over-year to 5.8 billion euros and operating earnings increased 10.5% year-over-year to 770 million euros. Looking ahead to fiscal year 2019, the company expects low single-digit revenue growth and 10% to 11% annual earnings per share growth. CCEP is a Conservative buy below $59.

CSWC Top 3

Capital Southwest Corporation (CSWC) exhibited incredible relative strength during the volatile month of August. In fact, over the last five weeks, the stock climbed about 3% higher. In comparison, the S&P 500 dropped about 3.3%. Clearly, CSWC was not susceptible to the market’s wild swings in August.

Part of the stock’s strength recently can be attributed to a stunning earnings report for its first quarter in fiscal year 2020. The asset management company achieved first-quarter earnings of $0.42 per share, which was up 44.8% year-over-year from $0.29 per share. The analyst community was expecting earnings of $0.40 per share, so CSWC posted a 5% earnings surprise.

Capital Southwest Corporation has also continued to increase its quarterly dividend over the past 15 quarters. The company will pay a dividend of $0.50 per share (a regular dividend of $0.40 per share and a supplemental dividend of $0.10 per share) on September 30 to all shareholders of record on September 16. CSWC is a Conservative buy below $22.
