3 Stocks That Could Make Huge Moves This Week
3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) 3D Systems is the largest 3D printer manufacturer (by market cap) in the world. Currently, over 34% of shares outstanding are being sold short. This is nothing new for 3D printing investors. The sector has been on fire over the past five years, and valuations are now coming back to earth. Many are worried about slowing growth, and 3D’s aggressive acquisition binge.
Here’s What You Should Watch Over the Short-Term Analysts are expecting 3D Systems to report revenue of $202 million. They are also expecting earnings to come in at a $0.25 per share. For 2015, expectations are set for $872 million in sales and earnings of $1.02 per share. Over the Long-Term Because acquisitions play such a large role in 3D Systems’ growth strategy, check on organic growth to see how healthy the company really is. Last year, it checked in at 34%, but it was just 12% last quarter.
Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) Herbalife is a leading provider of nutritional supplements to help control weight loss. Currently, over 38% of Herbalife shares are being sold short. Ever since hedge-fund king Bill Ackman announced a massive short position in Herbalife in 2012, the company has been under fire. Ackman claims that Herbalife is a pyramid scheme, and the SEC, FTC, and Department of Justice have all opened investigations into the company since then.
Here’s What You Should Watch Over the Short-Term Analysts are expecting Herbalife to report revenue of $1.2 billion. They are also expecting earnings to come in at $1.22 per share. For 2015, expectations are set for $4.8 billion in sales and earnings of $5.08 per share. Over the Long-Term Investors should focus on results excluding foreign currency exchanges, as Venezuela will weight heavily on results, but shouldn’t be a decades-long issue. Growth in North America, Mexico, and Asia Pacific slowed dramatically last quarter. These three accounted for 54% of revenue during the time frame. See if that trend will stabilize, reverse itself, or continue heading downward.
Gogo (Nasdaq: GOGO) Gogo is the leading provider of in-flight Internet connectivity on domestic and international flights across the world. Currently, over 34% of shares outstanding are being sold short. Gogo is currently in the build-out phase of its infrastructure. As such, the company is currently unprofitable, and many analysts think today’s market cap of $1.4 billion is a bit rich.
Here’s What You Should Watch Over the Short-Term Analysts are expecting Gogo to report revenue of $107 million. They are also expecting earnings to come in at a loss of $0.31 per share. For 2015, expectations are set for $500 million in sales and a loss of $0.66 per share. Over the Long-Term Average revenue per passenger (ARPP) is a key metric that’s been growing nicely. Last year, it stood at $0.74. Investors should be pleased if it can bump up to at least $0.80. Building out the infrastructure for international, overseas connectivity is what’s really draining money. Listen in to see if management believes it will start producing a profit prior to 2017—which is when most believe it will reach that milestone.
