What is "window dressing" as it relates to investing? Friday marks the last trading day of 2019's first half. Mutual fund holders or institutional clients seeing "dogs" on an end of quarter report ask unsettling questions about why you owned such a bad performer.
The first quarter was a breeze as Powell pivoted, and China seemed eager to reach a deal with Trump. Both the S&P 500 and Russell 2000 delivered very strong gains as a result, with the Russell 2000, which is composed of smaller companies, outperforming the large-cap stocks slightly during the first quarter. Unfortunately sentiment shifted […]
Let's see if Affiliated Managers Group (AMG) stock is a good choice for value-oriented investors right now from multiple angles.
Affiliated Managers (AMG) reported earnings 30 days ago. What's next for the stock? We take a look at earnings estimates for some clues.
Insider buying could be a powerful bullish indicator. When analyzing a company as a potential long-term investment, I always like to know the insiders are doing. It goes without saying that they probably have a much better idea of what is happening in the company than most analysts. They certainly know more about it than I do. I especially like to see what they are doing after their company stock has fallen dramatically.I am not implying that there is anything illicit or illegal going on. When an insider wants to buy or sell their company's stock they can as long as they follow very strict procedures. They have to file their intent to buy or sell with the SEC, and they are subject to blackout periods. These are times in which they cannot trade the stock. For example, an insider may be prohibited from buying or selling the stock in the thirty days before or after the earnings release is due to be reported.There are many reasons why an officer or a director of a company may decide to sell their stock. They could need to raise money for things such as tuitions, divorce settlements, or bailing their delinquent kid out of jail.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut they only buy it for one reason! They believe that the stock is undervalued and eventually it will trade at a higher price where they can make a profit. * 10 Heavily Shorted Stocks to Sell -- Because the Bears Are Right These stocks came up on my radar screen as potential buys due to the significant insider buying that has recently occurred. U.S. Auto Parts Network (PRTS) Click to Enlarge U.S. Auto Parts Network Inc. (NASDAQ:PRTS) is a company that is, not surprisingly, engaged in the auto parts business. They sell their products through different websites including www.usautoparts.net and www.autopartswarehouse.com.In 2016 the company earned $.69 a share but last year they lost 14 cents per share. This is probably why the price of the stock has fallen from $3.50 to $1 in the past two years.Lev Peker is the CEO. He must believe that the selloff is overdone because he just invested $90,000 of his own money when he purchased 90,000 shares at $1. David Meniane just joined the company in March as CFO. He must also believe that the stock is a bargain at these prices because he just bought 100,000 shares.Only two firms on Wall Street follow this company and they must also believe the stock is a value at these prices. They each have a buy rating on it and the average target price is $3.50. Affliated Managers Group (AMG) Click to Enlarge Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (NYSE:AMG) is an asset management company. They do not invest directly in the markets like a typical investment manager. AMG typically invests in these types of companies. They target small and growing investment management firms.The stock of AMG has fallen dramatically over the past 18 months. A year ago it was trading around $160. It is currently trading around $90.One would assume that the insiders of an investment firm would be able the recognize a bargain when the see it.Hugh Culter is an Executive Vice-President. He just bought 1,133 shares at a price of $91.66. This is more than a $100,000 investment.

The average rating is an overweight and the average price target is $115. SunOpta (STKL) Click to Enlarge SunOpta, Inc (NASDAQ:STKL) engages in the production and sale of organic and non-genetically modified food and beverage products. Healthy and plant based foods is a rapidly growing business. It seems like you cant go anywhere without seeing vegan or vegetarian restaurants.STKL used to be profitable, but since 2015 they have lost money every year. Last year it lost $1.74 a share and the four firms that follow it all think that there will be additional losses next year.Mr. Joseph Ennen is the CEO of the company. He must believe that the prospects for the future of the company are bright. He just acquired 125,000 shares around an average price of $4.25. Spark Energy (SPKE) Click to Enlarge Spark Energy Inc. (NASDAQ:SPKE) provides electricity and natural gas. The business serves both retail and commercial customers. It operates through two segments, Retail Electricity and Retail Natural Gas.From 2015 through 2017 the company was profitable. Earnings per share during those years were 53 cents, 56 cents and $1.21. Then last year the company lost 69 cents. Maybe this is why the stock has fallen by 50% over the past two years.Only one company follows SPKE and they believe its fairly valued. They have a hold rating on it with a $10 target price. * 7 Bank Stocks to Leave in the Vault Keith Maxwell is a director of SPKE. He obviously likes the stock at these prices.

I really have no idea what that means but that it what they say they do. They have been around for about 20 years and are based in California.In January CEO James Reinstein resigned after just two years. It could be because the stock lost about 60% of its value between June and December.Maybe Daniel Plants thinks that it is a good thing that Mr. Reinstein is gone. He is a Director of the company and he just purchased 7,200 shares. At current prices that is about a $120,000 investment.Wall Street likes this company as well. Four firms follow it. The average rating is overweight and the average price target is $21. That is about a 10% premium to where it is currently trading. Vaalco Energy (EGY) Click to Enlarge Vaalco Energy Inc.

Like many companies in this field it is headquartered in Houston, Texas.The price of EGY has fallen about 40% in just one month.

He just invested $168,000 of his own money when he paid $1.68 for 100,000 shares.This company isn't followed by Wall Street but it seems to be headed in the right direction. In 2015 it lost ($2.72) per share. In 2016 that improved to a loss of 45 cents a share. * 5 Stocks Under $10 With Big Upside Potential In 2017 the company reported a profit of $.16 per share, and last years profit was $1.62 a share. Intrepid Potash (IPI) Click to Enlarge Intrepid Potash, Inc. (NYSE:IPI) produces and markets potash and langbeinite products. They sell their products in three different markets.

He apparently is trying to take advantage of this selloff. He just spent $85,000 when he paid $3.27 for 85.000 shares.The Street is mixed on this one. Five firms cover it. There is one buy rating, two holds, and three sells ratings on the stock.As of this writing, Mark Putrino did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The once rising-star hedge fund seems to have hit a snag in another example of a credit fund unable to transition into stocks.
All things considered, it could have been worse … and for the better part of Monday, it was. The S&P 500's loss of 0.45% yesterday was a huge pare-back from what at one point was nearly a 2% drubbing driven by renewed worries of economic headwinds.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) inflicted the most net damage, falling 2.8% after President Trump threatened to put new tariffs in place on China's imports of U.S. goods. Advanced Micro Devices is one of the more vulnerable chipmakers. Affiliated Managers Group (NYSE:AMG) lost more ground of its own though, off 11.6% after a disappointing Q1 report was worsened by news that CEO Nathaniel Dalton would be stepping down due to illness.At the other end of the spectrum, Coty (NYSE:COTY) rallied nearly 6%, largely driven by the acceptance of the tender offer from JAB Holding.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Strong Buy Stocks That Tick All the Boxes But headed into Tuesday's trading, the stock charts of General Electric (NYSE:GE), Citrix Systems (NASDAQ:CTXS) and NRG Energy (NYSE:NRG) are of the most interest. The broad market is clearly vulnerable, and traders need to be even pickier than usual about selecting stocks. NRG Energy (NRG)A week ago, NRG Energy was rolling over in a gradual, arc-shaped way that we hadn't seen in months. It could mean this wave of weakness was a little more calculated than the past ones had been, and as such, it could last longer. On the other hand, none of the key support levels that were keeping NRG stock pushing forward had been broken. The U-shaped rollover could mean nothing.It's starting to look like it meant something. In just the past five trading days, NRG Energy shares broke below both of the aforementioned technical floors. We're in uncharted waters now, fighting what looks like will be a losing battle. Click to Enlarge * The two technical floors in question are plotted with dashed lines on both stock charts. The near-term support line plotted in red touched the key lows going back to July. The longer-term line is in yellow and it touches the key lows going back to 2017. * Thanks to yesterday's sizeable stumble, NRG Energy is also below the white 200-day moving average line for the first time since the beginning of 2017. * The volume behind the pullback was modest, until late last week and Monday. A couple of high volume selloffs evident on the daily chart finally dragged the weekly chart's Chaikin line below zero in a big way. General Electric (GE)General Electric hasn't been a particularly easy name to own of late, even for speculative reasons. Just when it looks like it's on the mend, the wrong headline surfaces and up-ends a budding rally effort.Things are slowly but surely changing for the better though, and one more good day could be a game-changer. A lot of the heavy lifting has already been done, and some programmatic or algorithmic buying could be in the offing. * 7 Marijuana Stocks That Are Bleeding Cash Click to Enlarge * When we last looked at GE back on April 30, it had just pushed up and off of its gray 100-day moving average line, and it had just fully closed a key gap left behind in late March. * While last week's productive move carried General Electric shares above the pivotal 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts, the March peak of $10.50 has once again stepped up as a technical ceiling. * Although it still won't happen for a few days, at least, the purple 50-day line is close to clearing the 200-day moving average line. This so-called "golden cross" is a well-watched buy signal for many professional and amateur traders. Citrix Systems (CTXS)Finally, for the better part of the past several weeks, we've been following the technical path of Citrix Systems shares. As of our most recent look from April 18, the stock had just bumped into its 50-day moving average line to remain stuck below the lower edge of a near-term converging wedge pattern.CTXS has remained in that downtrend in the meantime, briefly toying with a break under a horizontal support level before recovering in late April. As of yesterday though, that floor has once again been tested and the bulls aren't nearly as keen at staging a rebound effort. Click to Enlarge * The horizontal support line in question is right around $98, plotted in green on both stock charts. * Although it's technically back above that floor thanks to yesterday's partial bounceback, notice how much resistance is being supplied by the purple 50-day moving average line. * Zooming out to the weekly chart it's easy to see that Citrix Systems shares have already broken below the long-term support level that had tagged the major lows going back to the early 2016 bottom.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

One of the best ways to make money over time is to purchase shares that don't fully reflect the long-term value already created via growth in fundamentals. Despite those stellar numbers, recent stock price weakness had left AMG's decade-long stock price total return at just 62.6%, versus a gigantic 617% move higher in EPS. It is almost always arbitraged away by seeing the share price catch up to the true value that has already been earned.
Asset manager Affiliated Managers Group Inc. is promoting its president and chief financial officer to CEO, after another executive briefly served in the role following long-time CEO Sean Healey’s amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, diagnosis. Jay Horgen, who has been with AMG since 2007, is set to take over as CEO following the company’s annual meeting in Beverly on May 29, according to a statement Monday. Horgen will replace Nathaniel Dalton, another longtime AMG executive, who will stay with the company in the roles of senior adviser and director.
Shares of Affiliated Managers Group Inc. tumbled 11% in midday trade, enough to pace all of the S&P 500's decliners, after the asset management company swung to a first-quarter net loss, and said its chief executive was stepping down after a year in the role. The company reported before the open a net loss of $200.8 million, or $3.87 a share, after a profit of $153.0 million, or $2.77 a share, in the same period a year ago. The company said the net loss includes a non-recurring expense of $415 million to reflect the reduction in carrying value of an investment in a U.S. credit alternative manager. Economic earnings per share fell to $3.26 from $3.92, reflecting the "significant market declines" in the fourth quarter, but matched the FactSet EPS consensus of $3.26. Revenue fell to $543.1 million from $612.4 million, topping the FactSet consensus of $542.3 million. Assets under management declined to $774.2 billion as of March 31 from $830.9 billion as of March 31, 2018. Separately, the company named Chief Financial Officer Jay Horgen as CEO, with current CEO Nathaniel Dalton will become senior advisor and remain on the board of directors. Dalton became CEO in May 2018. The stock has gained 1.4% year to date, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has run up 17% and the S&P 500 has gained 16%.
Jay Horgen, the current president and chief financial officer, will take the helm after the shareholder meeting at the end of May.
The West Palm Beach, Florida-based company reported a net loss of $200.8 million. Analysts polled by Zacks Investment Research were expecting the company to report adjusted earnings of $3.27 per share on revenue of $535 million. "AMG generated Economic earnings per share of $3.26 in the first quarter of 2019, reflecting the effect of significant market declines in the fourth quarter of 2018, which impacted average AUM and performance fee generation in the first quarter," stated Nathaniel Dalton, CEO of AMG.
