At Home Group: Cheap Valuation With Good Growth Opportunities (NYSE:HOME)

It has been a rollercoaster ride for shareholders of At Home Group (NYSE:HOME). Reaching a peak of $40 per share by mid-2018, At Home’s share price plummeted to a low of approximately $5 per share one year later as the market was heavily discounting the impact of tariffs on the business (which was not without merit) as the company sources 65% of its merchandise from vendors in foreign countries, including China, Vietnam, India, Turkey, and Hong Kong. The company responded by executing strategic price increases that weren’t well-received by its customers, resulting in an impact on comparable store sales in their fiscal year 2020 (FY ends in January), turning negative for the year.

At Home’s share price was punished even further, reaching a low of $1.42 as the broad market went into freefall as COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic.

The company reported the best quarterly results in its

Visa: Shares Remain A Great Buy Near $200, Despite Near An All-Time High Valuation (NYSE:V)

In the midst of COVID-19’s panic selling, I published an article arguing that the impact of the pandemic on Visa (V) and Mastercard (MA) would be minimal compared to the overall expectations. As a result, I discussed why shares were trading at an attractive valuation, offering great total return potential.

Since then, Visa’s shares have run by approximately 30%, greatly rewarding investors who doubled down on the fintech giant. Due to its full price recovery, however, the question arises of whether the stock still offers an attractive investment case, or whether its pricey valuation could limit future investor returns.

In this article, I will:

  • Go over Visa’s latest transaction metrics.
  • Discuss the stock’s valuation, expected returns, and intrinsic value.
  • Conclude why shares remain attractive, despite the stock’s relatively high valuation.

Transaction metrics

In Visa’s latest earnings report, the company recorded revenues and EPS declines of 17% and 23%, respectively. As

How is nobody talking about this? Verso (NYSE:VRS) has just announced a special one-time dividend alongside its regularly scheduled dividend. Does this mean Verso doesn’t need the cash especially in the midst of a possible decline in its main graphics paper vertical?

Thesis: Verso corporation is undervalued on a book value basis. After the sale of its two factories, it amassed a ton of cash promised to shareholders. This cash will help close the gap in its undervaluation and provide more value.

Verso does not look like it’s in the midst of a full turnaround, especially with its main vertical focus being graphics papers. So, why is it returning so much cash to shareholders and how might this affect its business going forward?

A Special One-Time Dividend to Close The Valuation Gap

Verso just recently announced that it was issuing a special one-time dividend. This dividend is to be $3
