hot stock picks

Controversy may be good for business.

Ivanka Trump’s fashion label made headlines last month when Nordstrom (JWN) dropped the line from its stores and President Trump attacked the company on Twitter. Next, more companies dropped the brand, and then Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway violated ethics guidelines by delivering a promotional plug for the brand on Fox News.

All that news coverage meant plenty of free publicity for the Ivanka Trump brand. And recent sales figures show it’s paid off.

Slice Intelligence reports that US sales of Ivanka Trump products on Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) were up 332% in January and February compared to a year prior. The brand’s sales at Macy’s (M) were also up 148%, and 29.5% at Bloomingdale’s, according to Slice.

Since February 2017, #nordstrom stock increases 7% while @IvankaTrump clothing line increases over 300%. You decide the big winner here.

“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand. For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever,” Abigail Klem, president of the Ivanka Trump brand, said in a statement Friday.

    Instead of the P/E, therefore, we’ll consider the companies on the basis of price-to-cash from operations on a trailing-12-month (TTM) basis. Cash flow, after all, is one thing management can’t be massaged.

    Given revised commodity deck forecasts (particularly for Steel and Gold) and improved Balance Sheet health (Steels, Precious and Industrials Metals) we are upgrading our ratings on several stocks in our coverage. We generally favor companies that have already initiated specific self-help, have low-cost assets and are less exposed to China supply and demand dynamics. In Steels, we have increased our rating from Hold to Buy on Nucor (NUE) and from Sell to Hold on US Steel. We have also upgraded Kinross Gold (KGC) to a Hold on valuation…On higher-than-peer valuations, we reiterate Sell-rated Coeur Mining (CDE), Franco-Nevada (FNV), Goldcorp (GG), Teck Resources (TCK) and highly leveraged AK Steel given preference to issue further equity if possible.
