George's Stock Picks

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.

February Recommendation

This value stock opportunity became a newly independent following a recent spin-off from its iconic parent company. We like the spin-off. It provides two very appealing fundamental improvements: new leadership and more focus. Carl Icahn controls three of the eight board seats and owns a sizeable stake, which should keep pressure on the new management team. EBITDA is reasonably healthy and debt will be manageable. We think this technology mid-cap has a bright future.

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.
