3 picks from Moneyshow.com that work right now


The team at Moneyshow.com oversees a stable of some 70 different analysts and experts. Their senior markets editor, Jim Jubak, was back on Breakout with a trio of special situation picks that they’ve chosen to highight as part of the 80 picks they have gathered on their site.

Crown Resorts (CWN.AX)

Jubak’s first selection is Austrlian gaming company Crown Resort and comes from David Dittman, the chief strategist for The Australian Edge. It’s about a $10 billion business that has risen more than 40% in the past year and currently owns two big casinos in Perth and Melbourne.

“What you’re really looking to get some play on is Asia,” Jubak says, explaining that Crown also has a 34% stake in Macau and have also just been granted a license to build a new casino in Sri Lanka that could open in 2015.

Linamar (LNR.TO)

The Moneyshow team also want to capitalize on continued growth in the auto industry, and has flagged Canadian parts-maker Linamar. Jubak says this call originates from Gordon Pape, the editor of Internet Wealth Builder, who points to the fact that Ford is its biggest customer.

Linamar is a $3 billion business that is based on the outskirts of Toronto and has gained almost 60% in the past twelve month thanks to strong demand for its pistons, crankshafts and turbo chargers.

Like Crown Resorts, Jubak says investors should buy the more liquid and tradable local shares in Sydney and Toronto since ADR’s don’t exist.

Patterson-UTI Energy (PTEN)

Jubak’s third pick comes from Elliott Gue, editor of the Energy Income Advisor. He suggests Patterson-UTI, a $3.5 billion on-shore drilling operation based in Houston. It has gained about 25% in the past year, which is about double the advance of the broader Energy sectors.

“What you’re looking at here is the transition going on in the way companies drill and the power that they use in their rigs,” he says, explaining that Patterson is involved in an industry conversion from low powered rigs to more high powered rigs used in unconventional drilling.
