2 Undervalued Stocks

MarketFoolery brings back its popular "Undervalued" segment, and two analysts pick their top undervalued stock.

Jun 9, 2014 at 7:39PM

On Monday's MarketFoolery, host Chris Hill brings back the popular "Undervalued" segment and asks Jason Moser, Motley Fool One analyst, and Taylor Muckerman, Stock Advisor Canada analyst, what stocks are undervalued on the market.

First up, Jason picks Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFM). The organic grocery reported lackluster earnings and took a wallop with analysts because of it, but Jason sees avenues for Whole Foods in growing out its offerings, like the store band 365. Jason believes the company has been a victim of its own success and explains that it can be difficult for a company to continuously report numbers as high as Whole Foods has been in the past. Yet Jason sees future growth and market opportunity for Whole Foods. Chris then talks about management styles and growth in companies like Whole Foods and Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ:BWLD).

Then, Taylor chooses offshore drillers, specifically Ensco (NYSE:ESV) and Noble Corp. (NYSE:NE), as an undervalued sector. These two names, Taylor adds, are young companies trading at or below book value and pay dividends. When Chris asks Taylor about possible risks in the sector, Taylor explains that the rig operators, like Ensco and Novel Corp., have less risk, but he concedes that risk is present although the sector's safety is a much higher priority.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Jun 12, 2015 at 5:01PM

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
