George's Stock Picks

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.

March Recommendation

This turnaround investing opportunity's game plan looks promising, debt maturities are minimal through 2018 and cash flow is already showing significant improvement.  Margins are likely to expand quickly with new revenues because the company’s cost structure will be lean. In addition, $1.7 billion in net operating loss carryforwards (NOLs) will largely eliminate any income taxes for several years--and if management can’t get results back on track, this value stock pick could be an acquisition target for healthier competitors.

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.
