George's Stock Picks

June Recommendation

Despite this large cap stock pick’s problems, its brand and core franchise remain strong: The restructuring efforts are beginning to show promising results although the pace remains slow. Costs are coming down, and the company is seeing better net inflows. Overall management is tighter; plus, capital raises have bolstered the balance sheet. While the shares carry significant risks due to the leveraged nature of operations and its sensitivity to the capital markets, we see considerable upside potential if the turnaround is successful. There’s also the added bonus of dividends: Although the annual dividend yield may vary, it is currently generous and will compensate investors while they wait for results to improve further.

May Recommendation

After a period of finger-pointing, this large-cap is now focusing on improving its business. The iconic automotive manufacturer has replaced key leadership, cooperated with investigators and continues to settle claims. New management has developed a reasonable plan to increase profit margins and reduce the company’s capital intensity while maintaining a steady new product cadence, and potential improvements in its governance could further boost shareholder value. The company's brands appear largely undamaged and business is growing. We believe this stock pick appears to be on the road to potential recovery.

Puerto Rico Government Bankruptcy: Uncertainty But Also Investing Opportunity

Because of special tax law provisions that exempt the territory’s debt from not only federal taxes but also state taxes in every state, the bonds are widely held by investors across the country. Since the legal action is under a new law that has never been tested, there is tremendous uncertainty about how much creditors will recover and how long the process will take, but there may be opportunities for stock investors to profit from the island’s restructuring as well--perhaps with less downside risk than in many of the bonds. We found four public companies based in Puerto Rico that could benefit from stabilization in the island’s finances as well as three major insurance companies with exposure to Puerto Rican debt.

Investing in Post-Bankruptcy Stocks


Post-bankruptcy stocks represent an interesting investing sector because they operate in such an inefficient niche and often move independent of the overall market. Even though many companies take advantage of the Chapter 11 process to reshape their businesses and balance sheets to emerge as a stronger and more competitive entity, investors are often biased against post-bankruptcy situations because of their troubled past.   Learn more.
