OUR PICK – Clovis Oncology (CLVS, Nasdaq)
CLVS is 50% undervalued and onto the final push. CLVS might not be the favorite stock but valuation using discounted cash flow (DCF) showed that this company is 53.5% undervalued. That make this stock fairly valued around $17.55/share. Though not paying dividend currently, its earning is increasing 7.6% and far better than the industry that is losing 10.3% last year. The risk with this stock is, it’s having far more debt that it’s asset, so it’s have no book value or negative equity value. In other words, in the event the company goes under, then be ready to lose all of your money. The irony is, as of Q3, 2020, institutions have increased their holdings from 9.40% to 36.84% which what drove the price higher. At this point, from technical point of view, we are looking at the final push to the upside as bidders outsized offers at the $8.00 mark.
