George's Stock Picks

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 recovery.

April Recommendation

This mid-cap has many of the key traits of a successful spin-off--including healthy revenue, profit margins and cash flow, and its former parent bestowed it with a solid capital base. The leadership team is impressive and the stock pick comes with strong R&D, marketing and regulatory capabilities. While valuation is not cheap on an absolute basis at 20x 2017 earnings and 12.7x 2017 EBITDA, the stock trades at a considerable discount to its peers and to what we believe is a reasonable price given its attractive positioning. While not strictly speaking a turnaround, this pharmaceutical stock looks quite cheap relative to its potential.

Post-Chapter 11 Oil & Gas Stocks: Good Assets Freed From Shackles of Debt

We think many of these post-reorganization oil and gas stocks look like good bargains right now. Read More.

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.
