Is Plug Power Now A Buy? The Vetr Crowd Thinks So

  • Shares of Plug Power Inc (NASDAQ: PLUG) have lost more than 32 percent over the past year, but have gained more than 8 percent over the past month.
  • The Vetr Crowd upgraded Plug Power’s rating to 3.5 stars out of a possible five stars.
  • The Vetr Crowd’s crowdsourced price target of $2.14 implies a potential upside of more than 9 percent.
  • Plug Power, a provider of alternative energy technology, has seen its stock plunge more than 32 percent over the past year. Despite the heavy losses over the past 52 weeks, the stock has actually gained more than 8 percent over the past month. The recent momentum likely provided the Vetr Crowd with sufficient conviction of a turnaround in the stock.

    The Crowd

    The Vetr Crowd upgraded Plug Power’s rating to a 3.5 stars out of a five star rating on Monday. At the same time, the crowdsourced price target of $2.14 implies an upside of more than 9 percent; 66.7 percent of the Crowd’s ratings are bullish.

    Andrew H, a member of the Vetr Crowd, argued that Plug Power is a “long term” play and the stock will eventually trade above the $6 per share mark.

    The Vetr Crowd and Wall Street analysts appear to agree on a bullish rating, but disagree on Plug Power’s potential upside. As an example, analysts at Craig-Hallum initiated coverage of the stock back in July with a Buy rating and $3.50 price target. Analysts at Dougherty & Company also initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating back in April, although with a slightly higher price target of $3.70.

  • Credit Suisse believes that the mining sector could offer the best buying opportunity ahead of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike.
  • Fed tightening will likely lead to weakness in the U.S. dollar.
  • Historically, commodity prices have outperformed in the six month following the first rate hike of a tightening cycle.
  • The latest U.S. economic numbers make the case for an imminent Fed rate hike even stronger. The question on all traders’ minds is how to play rising interest rates. Although conventional belief is that financials are the major beneficiaries of higher rates, Credit Suisse recently discussed another approach to trading a Fed rate hike.

    The Idea

    According to a new Credit Suisse report, the first Fed rate hike will likely put an end to the U.S. dollar rally. Historically, the dollar has performed weakly after the beginning of the past five rate hike cycles.

    The Impact

    As a result, commodity prices will likely find some much-needed support following the first U.S. rate hike. “In the following 1/3/6 months we tend to see the Commod sectors (particularly the Miners) outperform [...] as one would expect with a weaker USD and the positive translation to Commod pricing,” Credit Suisse explained.

    Why Not Banks?

    In theory, rising rates should provide a boost banks' bottom lines. A large part of banks’ profits comes from the spread between the interest they collect from long-term loans and the interest they pay on short-term debt. While a rise in interest rates across the board doesn’t necessarily improve this spread, it theoretically gives banks more wiggle room when it comes to their net interest margins…

  • Shares of Coach Inc (NYSE: COH) have appreciated 3.93 percent over the past month, after having dipped close to their 52-week low on September 28.
  • Piper Jaffray’s Erinn E. Murphy has upgraded the rating on the company from Neutral to Overweight, while raising the price target from $33 to $37.
  • Murphy believes that the Coach brand is likely to see near-term improvement, driven by new product flows, price points being better balanced across its assortment and the gradual return of lapsed customers.
  • Analyst Erinn Murphy mentioned that quarter-to-date checks suggest that Coach is executing on plan.

    “We believe we are seeing the sequential improvement in comp from both a new customer that is coming to the brand from categories like footwear and RTW as well as a lapsed customer that is responding well to Stuart Vever's use of the iconic Coach brand elements including glovetanned leather,” Murphy stated.

    Conversion is likely to have continued to improve, driven by tighter promotions year-on-year, while collections like Swagger are being received well across the globe.

    Murphy believes there are various catalysts that would drive comps to turn positive by FQ4, such as increased penetration of the under $300 handbags, store refreshes prior to the holiday season and increased penetration of the Stuart Vever line at outlets.

    Meetings with the CEO and management team during the quarter have raised Murphy’s confidence in the “strategic direction of Coach's turnaround.”

    Why A GoPro Acquisition Won't Happen In 2016 (Seeking Alpha)

    • Shares of GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO) have declined 69.71 percent year to date, trading almost at their 52 week low on December 9.
    • Morgan Stanley’s James E. Faucette has downgraded the rating on the company from Equal-weight to Underweight, while lowering the price target from $23 to $12.
    • The downgrade is based on expectations of stagnation in product growth, along with pressure on the stock valuation. Faucette also expects high inventory levels to continue into 2016.

    Analyst James Faucette agreed with management that the weak response to the Session camera was due to various issues, including low consumer awareness, while stating that the bigger issue was that “key challenges of off-loading, storage, and editing content” had not been effectively addressed for a product intended to be “taken anywhere to record everything.”

    The upgraded HERO 5 cameras are expected to lead in 2016, despite the lack of adequate improvements to make off-loading and editing easier. In addition, limited improvements associated with video editing usability is expected to limit the adoption of quadcopter/Karma.

    “Almost all retailers we have spoken with are seeing YoY declines in sales, waning interest in the category and product availability mix shifting to lower price points,” Faucette stated, while adding that “channel inventory is unlikely to be declining fast enough to hit targeted levels by the end of the year to adequately reflect retailers' reduced commitment to the product segment.”

    The Q4 revenue and EPS estimates have been lowered from $527 million and $0.2 to $449 million and $0.07, respectively. The FY16 revenue and EPS estimates have been lowered from $2 billion and $1.14 to $1.6 billion and $0.66, respectively.

    The Neocon’s Hegemonic Goal Is Driving The World To Extinction

    Submitted by Tyler Durden.

    Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

    My warning that the neoconservatives have resurrected the threat of nuclear Armageddon, which was removed by Reagan and Gorbachev, is also being given by Noam Chomsky, former US Secretary of Defense William Perry, and other sentient observers of the neoconservatives’ aggressive policies toward Russia and China.

    Daily we observe additional aggressive actions taken by Washington and its vassals against Russia and China. For example, Washington is pressuring Kiev not to implement the Minsk agreements designed to end the conflict between the puppet government in Kiev and the break-away Russian republics.  Washington refuses to cooperate with Russia in the war against ISIS. Washington continues to blame Russia for the destruction of MH-17, while preventing an honest investigation of the attack on the Malaysian airliner. Washington continues to force its European vassals to impose sanctions on Russia based on the false claim that the conflict in Ukraine was caused by a Russian invasion of Ukraine, not by Washington’s coup in overthrowing a democratically elected government and installing a puppet answering to Washington.

    The list is long. Even the International Monetary Fund (IMF), allegedly a neutral, non-political world organization, has been suborned into the fight against Russia. Under Washington’s pressure, the IMF has abandoned its policy of refusing to lend to debtors who are in arrears in their loan payments to creditors. In the case of Ukraine’s debt to Russia, this decision removes the enforcement mechanism that prevents countries (such as Greece) from defaulting on their debts. The IMF has announced that it will lend to Ukraine in order to pay the Ukraine’s Western creditors despite the fact that Ukraine has renounced repayment of loans from Russia.

    Michael Hudson believes, correctly in my view, that this new IMF policy will also be applied to those countries to whom China has made loans. The IMF’s plan is to leave Russia and China as countries who lack the usual enforcement mechanism to collect from debtors, thus permitting debtors to default on the loans without penalty.

    In other words, the IMF is presenting itself, although the financial media will not notice, as a tool of US foreign policy.

    What this shows, and what should concern us, is that the institutions of Western civilization are in fact tools of American dominance. The institutions are not there…

    “War Games” Show Fed Worried About Commercial Real Estate, Interest Rates; Fed Weighs Consequences of “Macroprudential Tools”

    Courtesy of Mish.

    War Games

    Inquiring minds may wish to take a peek inside a Fed ‘War Games’ Exercise conducted this past summer, just recently reported on by the Wall Street Journal.

    Commercial real-estate prices have continued to rise and are projected to far exceed levels they reached before the 2007-09 financial crisis, adjusted for inflation. Debt is building up at companies through the issuance of junk bonds and loans to low-rated firms. Small banks, money-market funds, mutual funds and government-sponsored enterprises have become big players feeding the financial system with credit. However, the large banks subject to heavy regulatory oversight aren’t big providers of credit. Borrowers are increasingly reliant upon short-term loans, which could dry up quickly in a downturn. The economy could tumble into recession if a new financial bubble bursts.

    What should the Fed do?

    The question was posed to five regional Fed bank presidents in early June in a “war games” exercise. The presidents—the Boston Fed’s Eric Rosengren, Kansas City’s Esther George, New York’s William Dudley, Cleveland’s Loretta Mester and Minneapolis’s Narayana Kocherlakota, had to devise a response. They met at a regional Fed branch in Charlotte, N.C., and worked over three hours, with a whiteboard, briefing papers and lots of coffee. They emerged with a list of the pros and cons of various approaches, but no concrete road map for how to proceed.

    Fed officials also looked at whether they could demand that banks require larger down payments on loans to ensure borrowers weren’t as exposed to a large drop in real-estate prices. These “loan-to-value” rules also would have required agreement among several slow-moving regulatory agencies. Another problem was that in this scenario, large banks weren’t at the root of the problem.

    In addition, Fed officials looked closely at a little-used power the central bank has under the 1934 Securities Exchange Act to set so-called margin requirements on securities transactions, which could limit how much borrowed money banks, brokers and others can use in securities transactions.

    Perhaps the most challenging part of the discussion related to monetary policy. Former Fed governor Jeremy Stein once argued that the most effective way to stop a bubble from building might be to raise interest rates, because that approach “gets in all of the cracks” of the financial system. Some of the Fed officials in Charlotte

    Authored by Karl Denninger via The Market Ticker blog,

    The fear in both the GOP and Democratic party is visible at the surface when it comes to Trump, and it's not that he's any of what they've accused him of.  No, it's really much simpler than that, and both Republican and Democrat parties, along with the mainstream media, are utterly terrified that you, the average American, is going to figure out what underlies all of these institutions in America.

    No, it's not that they're evil.

    It's worse, for evil frequently is recognized and fought back yet for decades America has not awakened to what has been going on in the political and media establishment.  It was evident during the Vietnam war and has only gotten worse since.

    For those who don't recall the Tet Offensive was an attack launched by the NVA and VietCong by some 70,000 troops in a coordinated series of attacks across more than 100 targets.  It was an attempt to foment rebellion among the South's population.

    Tet failed in its military objective, in that there were too few troops spread too thinly, and once the US and South Vietnamese figured out what was going on they literally slaughtered a huge number of the attackers.  To put perspective on this at the Battle of Hue roughly 500 US Marines and South Vietnamese were killed but over 5,000 NVA and VietCong died in that one battle alone.

    The story was repeated through the country; while the North managed to attack they lost virtually the entire attacking force, while not managing to take one mile of territory.  They also failed to incite rebellion, which was the primary goal of the offensive in the first place.

    Our media, however, reported that we lost.  They were present and they lied, including Walter Cronkite. Cronkite reported in February of 1968 that the war "was a stalemate and probably unwinnable" despite knowing that the NVA had virtually been rendered soldierless in the Tet offensive as their casualty rate ran ten times the South's.

    Tet was a desperation move; the North was in serious trouble.  They were failing to take territory and losing men and material at an ridiculous rate compared to the Americans and South.  Simply put we were the better fighting force and it wasn't a close call.  In the first few days of their "offensive" they lost ten thousand men against about

    China’s Currency Continues To Tumble As AsiaPac Credit Markets Plunge, EM Stocks Lowest Since 2009

    Submitted by Tyler Durden.

    Following weakness in the middle-east and as WTI prices slide back into the red (on the heels of record speculative shorts in crude oil), Asia-Pac stocks are opening to the downside (but only modestly). On the bright side, the ZARpocalypse has been delayed briefly as the Rand is rallying on the back of Zuma hiring a new finance minister. On the dark side, offshore Yuan continues to plummet, down 6 of the last 7 days (down 14 handles!) and the Yuan fixed weaker for the 6th day in a ro wto July 2011 lows. and signaling more turmoil ahead of The Fed's decision. AsiaPac credit markets are gapping notably wider, EM stocks down 9th day in a row to 2009 lows, and EM FX is plunging.

    Credit Suisse Is “Worried” These Two Charts May Abort The Fed Hiking Cycle

    Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

    Submitted by Tyler Durden.

    Despite the bloodbath in corporate credit markets, talking heads remain cognitively dissonant as to the reality lurking under the surface of this colossal leap in cost of funds for every firm. However, Credit Suisse is "worried" about the implications of these two disheartening charts expose, suggesting a default environment that might abort the Fed hiking cycle – which in this case is not a market-reassuring outcome.

    As Credit Suisse's William Porter explains, the percentage of North American companies losing money on an LTM basis in Q3 rose to a cycle high, while the ratio in Europe stayed stable, at the low end of its recent range.

    The burden of this is the correlation with the default rate. Moody's 2016 forecast is 3.8% but the relationship with this ratio now suggests something much higher, and we watch that outcome as a risk. Arguably the only market remotely priced to a much higher default rate as an outcome is US rates.

    This is not a forecast, but an observation and a watching point. With the ECB now apparently less friendly as we examine below, we become more cautious ahead of the presumed Fed hike on 16 December, particularly in terms of total return dynamics.

    Ironically, if defaults were to rise to anything like the degree this analysis suggests, it might abort the Fed hiking cycle which is a source of concern for the credit market. But we would hardly take this as a reassuring outcome.

    There is a theme at present that credit is leading other markets, and is predicting "recession." We are worried…

    By the start of the fourth quarter, the Fed had finished raising the caps on monthly roll-off of its balance sheet to the full $50bn per month (peaking at $30bn USTs, $20bn MBS, although on many months the (balance sheet) B/S does not actually shrink by this full amount which depends on the redemption schedule) and by end-Q4 markets also experienced some of the largest volatility and drawdowns in nearly a decade.
