“Old school” folks might be skeptical of listening to financial advice from someone
half their age, but this stock whiz beat out 15,000 experts to claim #1 title.
The home improvement retailer has seen shares declines nearly 11 percent over the past year, in spite of a 31 percent jump in revenue and 354 percent jump in earnings. With those strong earnings and poor stock price performance, shares look attractive relative to their price to sales and the company’s PE ratio.
Action to take: Investors may like shares, given the strong trend of home improvement projects still underway. Shares are attractive on a valuation basis, but the company offers no dividend for income investors.
Shares have been volatile over the past year, but appear to be coming off a selloff and are back on an uptrend. That bodes well for an options trade like the November $22 calls. On a 10 percent jump in shares, the trade could move in-the-money. Last going for about $1.60, traders could likely nab mid-to-high double-digit profits.
