Best Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018


The shares of UnitedHealth (UNH) are currently undervalued when using optimistic estimates. However, even with slightly conservative estimates, the current share price could still provide a 9% annual return potential from this moment onwards.

A majority of investors are more likely interested in how the valuation and possible long-term return for a specific stock look like. Let us start with valuation first. I will not be delving into the current business situation of UnitedHealth as there are already plenty of excellent articles covering this topic. Personally, I prefer to keep my estimates as conservative as possible in order to avoid negative surprises. In the case of UnitedHealth, if we were to assume the historical 10-year annual revenue growth of 10.0% and free cash flow to sales ratio of 5.2% could be sustained in the future, we would arrive at a normalized free cash flow level worth $11,823 million. With the current amount of outstanding shares, this transla tes into roughly $12.4 per share. Just as a reference, the 20-year historical values for the annual revenue growth and FCF to sales have been 16.3% and 6.3%, respectively. For 2017, analysts are expecting free cash flow per share of around $10.25 per share, which is much more pessimistic than mine.

    Elon has plans for a Gigafactory 3 somewhere in the US unlike the Gigafactory in Europe. If Tesla can get just two Gigafactories built, it will have the batteries at least to produce vehicles at about the same scale as Suzuki (OTCPK:SZKMY) (Suzuki made about 3mm autos in 2015). In fact, Tesla hopes to have the Gigafactory running flat out by 2020, supplying 3X the number of batteries it needs unless it can ramp production into 2020 further. These batteries will be used on the Tesla Power Walls and other power containment devices it has in its pipeline, but it sure seems that Tesla can ramp its auto production past the 500k units per year in 2019 and 2020. At the very least, it will likely have the batteries to do so.

    When Netflix started that DVD-by-mail subscriptions service, it was a completely novel idea. Blockbuster tried to copy it but failed, destroying its own balance sheet in the process. Retail giant Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) tried too, but ended up just backing out and selling its mail-order subscriber list to Netflix.

But Cramer said that, ultimately, what happens in Washington has little impact on the earnings of stocks like Walmart (WMT) , Coca-Cola (KO) or Citigroup (C) . It also has no correlation to the 17.8% move in Nvidia (NVDA) , nor the 12.8% jump in Electronic Arts (EA) .
