(Bloomberg opinion) – in an anecdote often attributed to President John F.. Kennedy’s father, the moment he learned to emerge from the stock market boom of the 1920s was when he began receiving stock advice from his shoe-shine boy.. You can make a similar argument about the moment when the leading stock indices finally give their blessing to an upcoming stock. The newest and most dramatic example of that will happen next month, when S&P 500 recognizes Tesla Inc.. Through the club doors for the first time. Take Yahoo Inc. Typical dotcom business found its way into the US major stock index in December 1999, just four months before the crash in internet stocks that took hold of. s. More than a decade to recover from it. New acceptances in the mid-2000s were rich in real estate plays such as CBRE Group Inc. , Boston Real Estate Corporation. And Kimco Realty Corp. Then these companies were hit hard by the mortgage and financial crisis of 2008. Will this time really be different? Certainly, Tesla appears on a more solid footing than it was two years ago, when regulators were leveling fraud charges against Elon Musk and the company was, in his words, « from number one weeks » away from bankruptcy.. Predicted to rise to S&P 500 since its second-quarter results posted profits for a fourth consecutive period, and passed one critical benchmark that keeps a lot of startups out of the index. If we look at it from a more nuanced perspective of operating criticism, it works better. $ 2. The inflow of 4 billion in the third quarter alone was more than the total operating cash in the contract through September 2019. The auto industry as a whole appears to be performing remarkably well in the Covid-19 grip, as the S&P Automotive and Parts Sub-Index on Monday reached its highest level in more than two years.. Tesla is already the eleventh company by market cap on U. s. Exchanges, worth about the world’s three largest carmakers, Toyota Motor Corp.. , Volkswagen AG and General Motors. Put together. Ordinary investors are more likely to see their index tracking funds converting them to indirect Tesla shareholders whether they like it or not.. So what don’t you like? The long-awaited question is about evaluation. Tesla has passed the point at which it is in imminent danger of disappearing, but it is still very difficult to justify the price put on the stock. Returns on equity are increasing even with the broader auto sub-index. Even analysts estimate that they will rise by 20% over the coming years will only bring them in line with levels that were, until recently, considered normal levels for an industry that has not been favored by investors for years.. This kind of pedestrian financial performance is difficult to reconcile with expensive Tesla stocks. The average price of S&P 500 components is 20. Mixed 89 times 12-month futures earnings. Tesla’s price-earnings ratio is 113, which would be enough to give it the richest rating in the index after Under Armor Inc.. , The Boeing Company. And SBA Communications Corp. Comparing Ebitda to Enterprise Value, only six companies have ratings higher than Tesla’s 49. 51 multiple times. It’s very hard to see how Tesla will be able to justify these ratings in the long run. This is the case even if you agree with the most optimistic analysts and assume that the company will generate about $ 10 billion per year in net income by 2022 or 2023, compared to $ 556 million over the past 12 months.. Based on these numbers, a price-earnings multiplier of 20 times would produce a business whose value is not much more than half of Tesla’s current market value of $ 387 billion.. . This is the real lesson for newcomers to the big indicators. Per Yahoo or AOL Inc. Which turns into an example of market surplus, there’s Kimco or CBRE who survived but never regaining the magic that drove him into the spotlight. The 1999 Yahoo hype eventually fell victim to a better search technology developed by a little-known startup called Google.. The race to dominate electric cars over the next decade is scarcely less competitive. This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial staff or Bloomberg LP and their owners.

Stock futures trade rose cautiously as Wall Street weighs progress on a coronavirus vaccine against rising numbers of infections; The ban on Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will be lifted on Wednesday; Morgan Stanley is optimistic about Tesla.
The year is drawing to a close, and it is time for Wall Street analysts to start reporting their top picks for next year.. It is a long tradition, in most walks of life, to sometimes take a hard look at what lies ahead, and start giving advice on saying like an allegorical crystal ball.. Analysts carefully analyze each stock, looking at its past and current performance, trends in a variety of time frames, and management plans – the analysts take everything into account.. Their recommendations provide valuable guidance for building a flexible portfolio in the new year. As usual, TipRanks gathered data, ranked it in the top picks, and made it available for investors to use. Stock options and their data offer some interesting options. Let’s take a closer look. UTZ Brands (UTZ) UTZ Brands is a familiar brand in the eastern United States. The company is known for its range of snack foods, from the savory rather than sweet. The company’s food range, including pretzels, crisps, snack mixes and popcorn, are frequent choices in vending machines.. In August, UTZ (then known as Utz Quality Foods) completed a business merger agreement with Collier Creek, a special purpose acquisition company.. This combination brought the esteemed snack company into the general trade sphere. Recently, UTZ posted strong third-quarter results and reported entering an agreement to buy rival snack food company Truco.. The quarterly results were released first, on November 5, showing $ 248 million in net sales, an annualized gain of 24%, along with a gross profit of 23% year-over-year.. . One week later, UTZ and Truco announced a $ 480 million acquisition agreement, which will bring the « On the Border » brand of tortilla chips and salsa to the UTZ production line.. This stock covers Oppenheimer, a 5-star analyst, Robisch Barrick, who sees a clear path forward for the company.. “[After] the company’s announcement on 12/11 of the acquisition of Truco Enterprises, [we] generally view very positively the economics of the deals, the opportunity for synergy, leveraging the attractive tortilla category including additional products (salsa and queso), and attractive growth prospects. For the brand, « Barrick said. The analyst concluded, « We believe the company is well positioned to achieve organic sales growth of at least 3-4% and EBITDA growth of 6-8% with a bottom-up option from strategic acquisitions. ». To that end, UTZ remains Parikh’s top pick for small size food. The analyst ranks the stock as a superior performance (i. e. Purchase) with a target price of $ 24. This number indicates a rise of 28% from current levels. (To see Barrick’s record, click here) Overall, Wall Street likes this stock, and has a consensus rating from Excellent Analysts – Strong Buy. Of the 7 analysts that TipRanks have tracked in the past three months, 6 are bullish at UTZ, while only one remains on the sidelines.. With a potential return of around 16%, the agreed target price for the stock stands at $ 21. 71. (See UTZ stock analysis on TipRanks) RingCentral, Inc. (RNG) From salty snacks we turn to communication technology. RingCentral is a cloud-based commercial communications company. The company’s products are software platform packages that combine telephone and computer systems. RingCentral Office’s flagship product platform enables compatibility between the communications system and other popular business applications including DropBox, Google Docs, Outlook and Salesforce. RNG also provides unique features essential to communications systems: call forwarding, phone extensions, vid calls, and screen sharing. A large part of the modern business world is about problem solving, and RingCentral does this for its clients – and the results are visible in revenue and stock performance.. The top line number was increasing through 2020, with third-quarter revenue reaching $ 303 million versus $ 9. 3% winning streak. Shares have easily recovered from the spread of COVID in the middle of winter, and the stock is trading 76% higher so far this year. On the downside, RingCentral is operating with a net loss, and that net loss has deepened even as revenues and stock appreciation rise.. Loss per share for the third quarter was 24 cents. James Fish, a 5-star analyst at Piper Sandler, has written the review on RNG, and is optimistic about the company’s future. RingCentral is winning new customers and expanding with existing ones due to its ability to converge across a suite of communication programs, including with the call center. . . . We continue to recommend RingCentral as one of our « 4 centers » in our coverage and a name to own in the future a few years, Fish commented. As a result, Fish reiterates that RNG is his best pick. The analyst classifies the stock as being overweight (i. e. Buy) along with a $ 362 price target. At current levels, this indicates a potential 21% rise for next year. (To see Fish tracking history, click here) Overall, RingCentral has 10 recent reviews, including 9 purchases and 1 contract, which makes the analyst consensus a solid buy out view.. Average target price is $ 337. 22, indicating a 13% increase from the current trading price of $ 297. 79. (See RNG stock analysis on TipRanks) DraftKings, Inc. (DKNG) is helping the world of fantasy sports to draw fans into games, and now that professional leagues have resumed playing – albeit in shortened seasons, out of respect for coronavirus – DraftKings, which conducts fantasy leagues online, is gaining ground.. In addition to creating the fantasy league, DraftKings offers sports betting, and the company’s online model fits well with the social distancing restrictions put in place to combat the ongoing health crisis of viruses.. In the third quarter, whose results were announced earlier this month, DraftKings had a lot of good news.. Revenue, at $ 133 million, beat expectations by $ 1 million, and the net loss per share was not as deep as analysts had feared.. The company reported a major metric – unique player per month – that crossed a million, which is a milestone. Looking ahead, DraftKings has revised its 2020 fiscal guidance up by 5. 7% is in the middle of the range, to $ 540M to $ 560M. The midpoint of the 2021 revenue forecast is more optimistic, at $ 800 million. As noted, these gains come with the return of the major sports leagues to play. But that is not the only key here. DraftKings operates in 19 states plus DC – jurisdictions that allow legal online sports betting. But there are 8 other states that are in various stages of legalizing the DraftKings niche, and the company is looking to expand its operations.. Rosenblatt analyst Bernie McTernan sums up his expectations for DraftKings, “[DKNG] remains the top pick in our consumer technology coverage.. Third-quarter results will continue to revise positive revenue projections given better-than-expected evidence for the 20E and 21E years. We are on the higher end of the 21E group which we think is achievable given our expectations at least that MI and VA will be online. The analyst added, « The new launches will pressure the adjustment in the near term. EBITDA, but it is encouraging that the company is indicating that New Jersey, the more mature market, is in a similar location where they previously hoped would be due to higher profits.. McTernan rates DKNG a Buy, $ 65 target price target indicates a strong 41% rally for one year. (To see McTernan’s track record, click here) Overall, there are 19 recorded DraftKings reviews, including 13 purchases and 6 bookings, giving the stock a moderate buying rating from the consensus of analysts.

(Bloomberg) – The U. s. The Securities and Exchange Commission is pressing ahead with a plan threatening to expel Chinese companies from Yu. s. Stocks, which led to a belated clash between Washington and Beijing with the end of the Trump administration. By the end of this year, the Securities and Exchange Commission intends to propose a regulation that would lead to delisting companies for non-compliance with U. s. Auditing rules, according to people familiar with the matter. Agency officials have moved swiftly on the ground since August, when the president’s working group on financial markets – a regulatory board whose members includes SEC Chairman Jay Clayton and Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin – urged the regulator to pass restrictions that could go into effect as early as 2022. The persons who requested anonymity said in the discussion of private deliberations. This step is unusual because most agencies stop issuing major new policies after the presidential election, especially when a new party takes office. The base is unlikely to be completed before President Donald Trump’s term ends in January. 20. Clayton, who plans to step down by the end of the year, will also be gone before any list is finalized. That would leave his completion to the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission chosen by President-elect Joe Biden. The Nasdaq Gold Dragon Chinese Index decreased by 0. 9% Tuesday, compared to 0. 5% drop for the benchmark S&P 500. The scale that tracks U-listed Chinese companies. s. , Closed at a record high at the end of last week. China’s main stock market index changed little on Wednesday. The issue is the problem that bothered U. s. Regulators for more than a decade: China refused to allow inspectors from the company’s Public Accounting Oversight Board to review Alibaba Group Holding Ltd audits. , Baidu Inc. And other companies that trade in the US market. It has gained additional urgency due to heightened tensions between the two countries and following a high profile accounting scandal this year at Luckin Coffee Inc.. By pushing through the vote, Clayton would compel Republican and Democratic commissioners at the Securities and Exchange Commission – all of whom stayed years on their terms – to sign up to determine whether they support stricter rules for Chinese companies.. The release of the proposal also requires the SEC to request public comment and investor advocates are expected to inundate the agency with letters supporting the Clayton plan.. Additionally, unlike many policies in this era of increasing partisanship, cracking down on China is drawing Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill.. . In May, the United States. s. The Senate approved a bill without opposition directing the Securities and Exchange Commission to begin the process of delisting Chinese companies whose audits are not subject to inspection by US regulators.. All of these factors could put pressure on Clayton’s Democratic successor. The Securities and Exchange Commission declined to comment on the rule-setting plan. Fang Shanghai, vice chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, made a positive note about resolving the problem at a panel discussion earlier this week, saying it is important to ensure Chinese companies have access to international capital markets.. « I think during the Biden administration that we should be able to solve this problem because it is not an insurmountable problem, » Fang said at the New Economic Forum.. . All it takes is goodwill on both sides and desire on both sides. In a press briefing Wednesday in Beijing, Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that China believes it is « important to improve » the characteristics of the stock market and regulatory agencies and that cross-border regulatory mechanisms are « necessary. ». In the past, he added, China has contacted the Securities and Exchange Commission and other authorities and has never prevented any audits because it is committed to building a healthy environment.. . Chinese stock listings caught Trump’s attention, as he stepped up his attacks on China over the coronavirus pandemic and other grievances. . Last week, he signed an order barring US investments in Chinese companies owned or controlled by the military. The Wall Street Journal reported the SEC’s work earlier. The conflict over audits inspections dates back to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which reformed the regulation of public company audits after the collapse of Enron Corp.. And WorldCom. The law created PCAOB and required it to conduct regular inspections of companies that review corporate books. Although it applies to companies all over the world if they click on U. s. Markets – and more than 50 foreign jurisdictions allowing reviews – China refused to comply, citing strict secrecy rules. Yo. s. And Chinese officials have repeatedly failed to reach a compromise. Meanwhile, Chinese companies have continued to go public via U. s. Stock exchanges despite ignoring US law. They raised about $ 12 billion in IPOs this year, the highest level since 2014 when Alibaba debuted. The President’s Working Group report leading the SEC action recommended that exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq establish enhanced standards to prevent the listing of companies that do not adhere to the U. s. Grammar. The report called on the Securities and Exchange Commission to pass new rules, but said that they should not take effect until January 2022 to prevent market disruptions.. Yo. s. Investors’ exposure to Chinese stocks is increasing, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission. More than 150 companies in the country with a total value of 1 USD. 2 trillion, traded on US stock exchanges as of 2019. More repression by U. s. It can provide a boost to China Stock Exchanges and Stock Exchange in Hong Kong. The financial center has already seen a wave of repatriations from Chinese giants like Netease Inc. And ld. Com. Which has sought secondary lists in the city amid growing tension. Companies looking to take advantage of U. s. As for the added clients or visibility, they are more likely to want compliance, but those who do not see America as a target market can move the listings to places like Hong Kong, said Benjamin Quinlan, CEO of Quinlan & Associates, a strategic advisor in Hong Kong.. « I think Hong Kong stock exchanges in particular as well as some domestic and local exchanges in China will be major beneficiaries, » Quinlan said.. . Analysts also say that there is a lot of liquidity in Asia to support the listings, both in the region and from abroad. « Some of these Chinese companies are highly competitive, have grown strong and have taken advantage of some very exciting issues going forward, » said Chetan Seth, Asia Pacific equity strategist at Nomura Holdings Inc.. . “I expect that there will always be interest from global investors in some of these names. Potential delisting from U. s. The exchanges should not materially affect the corporate fundamentals.
