With stocks near record-high territory, a market researcher is scaring Wall Street to avoid best picks and names.
David Traynor, CEO of stock research firm New Constructions, told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Tuesday that the market rally pushed many stocks to riskier levels.
“We’re looking at more value-oriented names that haven’t participated in this big melt-up, which, we think, has pushed a lot of stocks to a place where they are really at a pace as different as The merchants are unfit for a quirky, ”said the trainer.
Those pockets of opportunity, he noted, can be found in relatively undervalued stocks such as General Motors, Hershey and Intel.
“All these stocks are trading in such a way that their profits will decline by a significant amount permanently. They are industry leaders. They have got high returns on invested capital, and they have been cash flow machines. What? They are part. Sexy work from home or [electric vehicle] Subject? Not so much. But we think they are just doing well here from outside and some of it is better than what we call unfit-for-fiduciary tech stocks, ”said the trainer.
They are three stock mixed bags. General Motors has outperformed the market this year, rising 15% compared to the S&P 500’s 12% gain. Hershey has weakened by 4% in 2020. Plagued by weak data center demand and chip delays, Intel has fallen 24%.
The trainer has survived some of this year’s great stocks: Wayfair, Peloton and Beyond Meat. Online furniture company Wayfarer and exercise cycle-maker Peloton have benefited from staying home this year. Wayfair has increased by 165% and Peloton by 261%. Beyond meat, this year has been bid at 72%, high growth potential.
The trainer said, “Three stocks that are just the sort of crazy fake valuations.” “All these firms are given almost no competitive advantage except what you might call the first proposer an advantage, but this is in a place where competition is large and growing and barriers to entry are relatively low . “
Wayfair trades at 107 times forward earnings; Peloton 217 times; And beyond 619 times. The S&P 500, by comparison, trades 23 times.
