This stock’s surged almost 10%! Should you buy it for your ISA?

first_img Investor appetite was quite tepid on Monday morning, with UK share markets flatlining from last week’s close. It’s no surprise, as Covid-19 uncertainty keeps all us ISA investors guessing. One share that’s not suffering from weak stock-picker appetite, however, is Pendragon (LSE: PDG).The retailer’s shares are up close to 10% in start-of-week business, putting it at its most expensive for five weeks. News that Dietmar Exler, current chief operating officer of AMB Sports & Entertainment, has been parachuted in as an independent non-executive director has boosted hopes of a turnaround for the embattled auto seller.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Exler has considerable expertise in the car industry. His former roles include president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA, as well as head of region at NAFTA Mercedes-Benz.It’s the latest move intended to beef up Pendragon’s board. Bill Berman was appointed chief executive in mid-February following a run as the company’s interim chairman. Berman was previously head of AutoNation, the biggest car retailer in America.Giddy!No disrespect to Exler, but I fear today’s intense buying of Pendragon’s shares is a huge overreaction. The car giant’s problems are significant. I, for one, would want to see a significant upturn in market conditions before I buy it for my ISA. As it stands, news flow continues to get worse and worse.Trade over at the FTSE 250 firm has long been in the doldrums. Brexit uncertainty has smacked demand from private and commercial customers in recent years. And the possibility of a no-deal withdrawal from the European Union at the end of 2020 casts a shadow over sales for much of the new decade.The coronavirus outbreak has made the Brexit impact look like small potatoes though. Data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders showed new vehicle transactions collapsed by almost half in March. Latest figures on UK household finances suggest sales of big-ticket items like new and used autos will continue to struggle too.According to IHS Markit, Britons’ sense of financial wellbeing has weakened to its worst since November 2011. A reading of 34.9 for April also represented the largest month-on-month drop since records began in 2009.A poor ISA pickIn line with government guidance, Pendragon has shuttered all of its retail sites in Britain. It’s unclear when showrooms will be opened to the public again. But even when the doors are unbolted, there won’t be a throng of people flooding onto its forecourts if mass unemployment and widespread corporate failures materialise.So forget about City forecasts that Pendragon will flip back into profits this year from 2019’s losses. Treat predictions of an 84% earnings boom in 2021 with a considerable pinch of salt.The retailer’s cheap price, illustrated by a forward P/E ratio of below 9 times, reflects its high-risk profile for this year and beyond. There are much, much better shares to fill your ISA with today.

Growth stock Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has seen its share price fall by more than a third since reaching its all-time high in January. Despite this, it’s up over 250% on a one-year view. Could the drop since January be an opportunity for me to buy in to the electric vehicle (EV) megatrend?Well, I continue to have reservations about Tesla’s valuation, even at today’s lower share price. By contrast, there’s a UK growth stock that looks very buyable to me right now. I see a lot I like about it, and the EV story is part of the appeal.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Tesla share price slumpAfter hitting an all-time high of $900 in January, Tesla’s shares are currently around $580. The slump has wiped getting on for $300bn off the value of the companyNevertheless, its market capitalisation of $560bn still dwarfs global giants like Toyota (market cap $225bn) and Volkswagen (market cap $165bn). With Tesla facing ever-increasing competition, its forward valuation of 130 times earnings makes no sense to me.Polarised views on the Tesla share priceI think I’m in good company. One of the great analytical minds in the financial world, Michael Burry, announced back in December he was shorting Tesla. He described the valuation as “ridiculous”. The share price was about the same then as it is today, and Burry is still betting against the stock.However, Tesla also has plenty of high-profile supporters, notably much-followed growth stock devotee Cathie Wood. With Wood having called Tesla right in the past, and the market having pushed the share price as high as that $900 as recently as January, I’m not tempted to follow Burry in betting against the stock. Equally though, it’s not a stock I’m interested in buying.A UK growth stockI’m much more interested in pioneering high-performance plastics specialist Victrex (LSE: VCT). This growth stock is in the UK’s mid-cap FTSE 250 index.At £24 a share, Victrex’s market capitalisation of £2bn is a tiny fraction of Tesla’s. It’s valuation of 29 times earnings looks very attractive to me. In addition to possessing growth-stock characteristics, it’s highly cash-generative, debt-free and pays dividends. The prospective yield is a handy 2.3%.Victrex serves a range of end markets across industrial and medical sectors. It has a long history of identifying areas of future demand and investing ahead of them. The EV market is one of a number of current targets. Indeed, management told us last month it’s “closing in on a new E-mobility business win”. In addition, it has “a growing number of development programmes”.This growth stock also has riskMany of Victrex’s industrial end-markets are cyclical, while its medical business unit has suffered due to a fall-off in elective surgery during the Covid-19 pandemic. As such, a reversal in the green shoots of post-pandemic recovery could hit the company’s earnings expectations.Its earnings multiple is much lower than Tesla’s, but it’s still pretty punchy for a stock that’s expected to post high (but not hyper) growth. If it doesn’t deliver the expected growth, the shares could de-rate to a lower earnings multiple.On balance, my personal risk-reward appetite leads me to see Victrex as a growth stock I’d buy, while remaining uneasy about Tesla’s valuation at its current share price.

Whole Foods Buy Out May Increase Sales of Organic and Non-GMO…

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Whole Foods Buy Out May Increase Sales of Organic and Non-GMO Food By Gary Truitt – Jun 21, 2017 SHARE Whole Foods Buy Out May Increase Sales of Organic and Non-GMO Food SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Whole Foods Buy Out May Increase Sales of Organic and Non-GMO FoodRichard Feinberg, (Purdue News Service photo/David Umberger).The way food is being marketed and sold to consumers is changing, and this will have an impact on farmers and food producers. The purchase of Whole Foods by Amazon is just the beginning of a revolution in the food retailing industry. According to Richard Feinberg, professor of consumer science at Purdue, “It is difficult to overstate the impact that this is going to have in the grocery industry.”Feinberg says Amazon has the ability to deliver food to people quickly, no matter where they are. Amazon brings a technology and distribution ability that no grocery retailer has. This will allow Whole Foods to do what it does, but better and more profitably. Grocery chains like Kroger, Target, and Wal-Mart are not ready for what Amazon brings to the table with the new and improved Whole Foods.With the purchase of Whole Foods, Amazon will now be able to do that with the unique food products Whole Foods has.  Whole Foods is a chain that does not sell GMO food products and stresses organic, antibiotic free, and less processed food items. Amazon will now have the ability to offer and deliver those kind of products anywhere.  “Whole Foods currently has 430 stories, but after the acquisition, they will have 350 million stores because they will be on every desktop,” Feinberg says.  About 50 percent of U.S. households have an Amazon Prime membership. Prime membership for groceries cements a relationship with a grocery store, and it encourages members who have not shopped there to shop in Whole Foods.Feinberg says other retailers will be quick to react and adapt, “Other food retailers will have to make changes or disappear.” He added that Amazon’s goal is to be bigger than Wal-Mart in the food business. He predicts this change will come quickly, within the next 3 to 5 years.Feinberg also says that Amazon has a test store called Amazon Go in Seattle that is displaying how Amazon does groceries. Two features are significant, “Customers swipe their Amazon Prime Card when they enter. When they take something off the shelf and put it in their cart, it registers in their account. If they put the item back it, takes it off their account. When they walk out of the store, the payment is instantaneous. No more waiting to check out, which is the biggest complaint that consumers have of grocery stores.” Previous articleCheck Dicamba Soybeans After SprayingNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truittlast_img read more
