If you’re wondering whether environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing is taking off, consider this: the term ESG was used during 100% more S&P 500 corporate earnings calls in the second quarter of 2019 compared with the first quarter, according to FactSet. And while the actual number of mentions was only 24 (compared with 12 in the prior quarter), if the pace of change continues, by mid-2020 roughly 20% of calls will proactively cite nonfinancial, ESG data. Bank of America Merrill Lynch recently predicted that up to another $20 trillion could be invested in ESG funds over the next three decades.

Last week, American Airlines (AAL) and United Airlines (UAL) announced that they would remove all 737 MAX flights from their schedule through early January.
Airline stocks have been suffering over the past few years as bankruptcies, fluctuations in the price of oil and more recently, trade disputes and labor demands, have weighed on the sector. However, in the case of airline stocks it appears that history isn't an indicator of the future, as the segment looks poised for a rebound. Earlier this year the Boeing (NYSE:BA) 737 Max jet was grounded for safety reasons and although BA is working to get the plane back in the sky, there's no way to predict how long that will take.On top of that, the latest World Trade Organization ruling gives President Donald Trump's administration clearance to impose a tariff on European goods that would make the price of Airbus (OTCMKTS:EADSY) aircraft 10% more expensive. That tariff is seen coming into effect Oct. 18 and consequently has weighed on the industry. Worries about rising costs are certainly founded, but the market's knee-jerk reaction could be a great buying opportunity for value investors.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Beverage Stocks to Buy Now Here's a look at the top four U.S. carriers and their ability to weather this storm. Airline Stocks: Delta Air Lines (DAL)Source: Markus Mainka / Shutterstock.com At the end of December, Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) stock fell off a cliff on the tariff news. Delta stock is down 12% from its September highs despite what appeared to be a relatively solid third-quarter earnings report. Delta's sales were up 6.5% and the firm's margins expanded in the third quarter. Management said revenue is seen rising by more than 5% in Q4. Worries bout the sector overall kept investors focused on the fact that the earnings per share forecast was below expectations. And DAL stock suffered.It's true that Delta's costs are going up. Aside from the impact of Trump's tariffs, Delta is also dealing with pay increases and rising maintenance costs that will hurt the Q4 results. DAL stock is also likely to be one of the hardest hit by the Airbus tariff -- the firm had 254 outstanding orders with Airbus at the end of August.However there's still a chance that the tariffs will be renegotiated, or at least delayed, in the days to come. Dr. Tenpao Lee, an economics professor at Niagara University said in an email interview that tariffs ultimately worsen conditions for both sides. He believes the trade tension with Europe is fundamentally different from what's happening with China. This is in part because Europe is an ally, which could make it easier for the two sides to come to an agreement.That outcome would be positive for DAL stock and may help facilitate a Q4 upside surprise. Plus, Delta is arguably one of the most financially sound on this list. And the firm's 3.1% dividend yield makes waiting out some short-term pain much more palatable. American Airlines (AAL)Source: GagliardiPhotography / Shutterstock.com American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) has the second largest number of outstanding Airbus orders on the books with 114 awaiting delivery as of Aug. 31. On top of that, the firm was hit hard by the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max -- around 150 flights per day were canceled as a result. That means AAL stock could make big moves if Boeing can get the plane cleared before the end of the year. So far, no concrete dates have been released by safety regulators, but it appears that most airlines are counting on the Max to return to flight by early 2020.AAL has been beaten down over the past year. American Airlines stock is down more than 50% from its 2018 highs. That in itself has become somewhat of an argument to buy. JC O'Hara from MKM Partners told CNBC that American's chart is so bad, it might actually be good. That's the same sentiment that InvestorPlace's Tim Biggam had earlier in October. He noted that AAL stock is one of the cheapest in the industry right now. The firm is due to report its earnings on Oct. 24, after the Airbus tariffs come into effect. The report should provide some insight into how the firm will deal with the rising cost of its unfulfilled orders. Southwest Airlines (LUV)Source: Eliyahu Yosef Parypa / Shutterstock.com Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) stock has been one of the best performers in the airline sector despite being impacted by the Boeing Max groundings. Southwest stock has been a top pick in the sector in part because it has remained relatively insulated from oil price swings. The company has an active fuel hedging program which protects Southwest from dramatic price changes and even earned LUV $3.2 billion between 2002 and 2008.Southwest flies exclusively Boeing aircraft, so it won't struggle if the tariffs are imposed as planned. In fact, LUV might actually benefit from the tariffs as the company has been forced to ground its 34 Max planes and hold off on the dozens more that have yet to be delivered. This has put competitors with fewer Max planes at an advantage. Southwest has planned its schedule through January without the Max planes. Any movement toward getting them in the sky would also be a boon for LUV stock. United Airlines (UAL)Source: travelview / Shutterstock.com United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL) stock has just 45 unfulfilled Airbus orders on the books. The company operates a mixed fleet. Both tariffs and the grounded Max planes have hurt the company. The firm is due to report solid earnings on Oct.16. But investors are likely to remain cautious with all of the uncertainty surrounding the industry. So far, UAL has recouped most of the losses it suffered when Trump's Airbus tariffs were announced. That means although the stock is still weighed down by the Max groundings and overall uncertainty about airline stocks, it may not get the same bump that some of its other peers will if the U.S. and the European Union come to an agreement in the coming week. Over the past year UAL has been growing its capacity and unit revenues consistently. And those trends appear set to continue. Bernstein analyst David Vernon believes UAL stock can make its way to $107 once sentiment improves. In his view, the market has been "too negative" about the 737 issues. Vernon sees the firm making substantial gains as the dust settles. As of this writing Laura Hoy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Undervalued stocks are nothing new on Wall Street. And Goldman Sachs making a bullish call to defend a company's shares is not exactly news either. But combine the two and add in price charts that confirm a bottom, and it's clear that there's plenty of potential in some underloved stocks. Specifically, I'm talking about the diversified and superior potential in American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL), Under Armour (NYSE:UAA) and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:REGN).There are bulls in investing and then there's Goldman Sachs. One of the market's most storied investment firms certainly maintains reasons for being generally optimistic in its market calls. That's not to say Goldman isn't making prop side bets or that it's always bullish. But when it comes to paying customers, underwriting and the likes, a bull market is good for business.Given how this well-oiled machine operates, a buy recommendation from Goldman isn't exactly a rarity. Nevertheless, when the firm's chief U.S. strategist acknowledges major market headwinds, but sees superior upside potential in several undervalued stocks -- such as Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE:FCX) -- with 50% or more upside, it's time to take notice.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Tech Stocks to Buy Now for 2025 But from there, we can whittle down that list of names to these three stocks to buy, since they have charts that can actually justify all the fuss. With that said, let's dive a little deeper into what makes AAL, UAA and REGN stock worth a buy. Undervalued Stocks to Buy: American Airlines (AAL)As most investors may be aware, AAL stock has been left behind over the past few years while the broader market has continued to rally to all-time-highs. Shares are also down several percentage points since Goldman's initial call.But now AAL looks ready to take-off!American Airlines' weekly chart has confirmed a large pattern double bottom dating back to 2016 with a smaller variation of this formation. With shares of this undervalued stock also showing a supportive stochastics divergence during the development of the just-completed double bottom, it's time to go long AAL stock with confidence.AAL Stock Strategy: Goldman sees upside potential nearing 60% over the next 12 months for this undervalued stock. Use the failure of the paired double bottoms to contain losses if needed and take initial profits at $35 for a stronger risk-adjusted position. Under Armour (UAA)Under Armour is the next of our undervalued stocks to buy. Shares have been rallying for the last two years since initially falling out of favor with growth investors back in 2016, which was compounded by a series of missteps and earnings disappointments. But while UAA stock has gained ground since bottoming in 2017, as this past summer's price action attests, it hasn't been without incident.The good news is right now the home field advantage on the price chart goes to bullish investors in shares of Under Armour. * 7 Beverage Stocks to Buy Now UAA Stock Strategy: Goldman sees about 65% upside possible for UAA stock. I see diversification, a stop-loss slightly beneath the higher-low pattern low at $17.35 and a bonafide slam dunk if this undervalued stock can capture the firm's price objective. However, I'd gladly take the opportunity to trim profits along the way and inside the last earnings gap near $25 a share. Regeneron (REGN)Not that I've saved the best for last, but this undervalued stock to buy does happen to have the largest potential for upside according to Goldman. The firm estimates Regeneron has room to run by roughly 79%. What shares also have going for them is a prolonged bearish market of nearly four years. This may have finally bottomed on the monthly price chart.This view of REGN stock reveals shares have just confirmed a fresh lower low pivot within the biotech's downtrend. With the September pivot just narrowly undercutting the last important low from 2018, a double bottom is in place on the monthly chart. Because the pattern also has the backing of a bullish oversold stochastics crossover, this undervalued stock is a name to buy today.REGN Stock Strategy: Use an out-of-the-money bull call spread because of the risks associated with biotechs like REGN stock and its long history of price volatility.I'd also suggest sticking with the chart for exiting and taking profits along the way. Specifically, use $270 for containing downside exposure and $400 - $425 for reducing upside risk.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management currently own positions in Under Armour (UAA) securities and its derivatives but no other securities mentioned in this article.
