5 Retail Stocks Jim Cramer Hates This Holiday Season

Fossil (NASDAQ:FOSL) Disliked at $99.33; trading at $97.40 at the time of this writing.

Fossil reasonably priced, quality merchandise will provide budget conscious consumers with affordable gift options for the holiday season which should be reflected in the company quarterly report next week. Traditionally an accessories retailer centered on watches and handbags, Fossil improved its earnings potential and growth outlook by diversifying its product offering to include clothing over recent years. Fossil has a tendency to fall dramatically after reporting its quarterly operating results and then recover past the point of origin before the end of the following quarter. This pattern of drastic swings is made evident by its 52 week range of $61 $135 per share. Increasing raw costs paired with cash strapped consumers has made retail stocks more prone to volatility. Because of its reputation of affordability, Fossil doesn have the pricing power or profit margins of other high end retailers. Fossil predictable swings makes it more of a trading vehicle than a long term stock to own. Fossil is emphasizing growth as a reason to own the stock going forward. Fossil year over year quarterly revenue growth is 34.9% and its price to earnings growth ratio is 1.18. Fossil 23.80 price to earnings ratio is equal to the average PE ratio for the consumer durables industry. A buying opportunity may be presented if the stock falls after is quarterly reporting.

Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) Disliked at $157.39; trading at $155.52 at the time of this writing.

With a market cap of $14.25 billion and year over year quarterly revenue growth of 32.40%, Ralph Lauren is the largest retailer of its direct competitors The Jones Group (NYSE:JNY) and PVH Corp. (NYSE:PVH). PVH Corp. has a $4.94 billion market cap and 21% YOY quarterly revenue growth while The Jones Group has a $969.22 million market cap and 2% quarterly revenue growth. However, it would be wise to proceed with caution when considering the stock. Estimates for Ralph Lauren last quarter were too low and, naturally, the company reported what was seen as a terrific quarter as a result of it. Based on those numbers, expectations for this quarterly report may be too high and the stock may get punished as a result. Ralph Lauren was downgraded to by Citi back in September. Ralph Lauren fundamentals make a strong case for owning the stock, but it may prove better to buy the stock after the stock gets hit after reporting results this week.

HHGregg (NYSE:HGG) Disliked at $14.08; trading at $14.52 at the time of this writing.

Unlike HHGregg primary competitor Best Buy (NYSE:BBY), Cramer said HHGregg may be worth owning throughout this holiday season. Steep price cuts and discounts are expected and HHGregg CEO, Dennis May, said the company will be promotional to generate holiday sales. HHGregg stock shot up 20% after reporting spectacular second fiscal quarter operating results. The retailer reported a net sales increase of 28.6% to $618.6 million along with a 1.5% increase in comparable store sales. A much smaller company than its rival, HHGregg has a price to earnings growth ratio of 0.92 compared to Best Buy PEG ratio of 0.85. HHGregg is trading at 13.31 times earnings and has 28.6% quarterly revenue growth (year over year). Best Buy comparable revenue growth is a paltry 0.10%. An operating margin of 3.75% and a gross margin of 29.85% makes HHGregg a safe way to play electronic retailers this holiday season.

Best Buy (BBY) Disliked at $27.01; trading at $27.31 at the time of this writing.

This ailing electronics retailer has a stock worth avoiding. Best Buy stores may have plenty to offer customers, but the stock 2.3% dividend yield is hardly enough to entice investors. Cramer quipped that Best Buy should be renamed to Browse due to the growing trend of customers using the store to see and test a product before purchasing it online through a retailer like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), which may offer a better deal. Online retailers like Amazon can offer better deals on many products because of less overhead in operations. As a result of this increasing loss of market share, Best Buy is shifting some of its focus to offering services. company Carphone Warehouses mobile JV unit in an effort to enhance its wireless centered stores. The retailer will also acquire mindSHIFT Technologies, which provides IT services for medium and small sized businesses. Best Buy will abandon its plan for European expansion after announcing it will close all 11 of its unprofitable stores in Britain. Best Buy year over year quarterly revenue growth of 0.10% fails in comparison to Amazon 43.9% quarterly revenue growth. Best Buy may be cheaper than Amazon on a price to earnings basis, 8.83 and 114.29 respectively, this is clearly because of Amazon soaring prospects and Best Buy declining revenue and market share.

Macy (NYSE:M) Disliked at $31.47; trading at $31.36 at the time of this writing.

The department store operator said monthly sales rose 2.2%, which missed the 3.6% analysts estimated. Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), Macy rival, reported a 5.4% increase in sales, which was also smaller than expected. Nordstrom cited their weaker than expected sales to weakness in the mid Atlantic and Northeast region. economy. Dillard (NYSE:DDS) actually beat their 3.7% sales estimate by reporting an 8% rise in sales. Dillard has no exposure in the Northeastern region in which Nordstron struggled with. Macy said warmer weather in the earlier part of October delayed the purchase of winter wear. Macy stock trades at 13.23 times earnings and has a PEG ratio of 1.5. The stock has a quarterly revenue growth (year over year) of 7.3%, which is lower than both Nordstrom 11.7% and Sak (NYSE:SKS) 13%. If Macy stock reacts poorly after the company reports a decent number, Cramer suggesting selling Kohls (NYSE:KSS) and Nordstrom before they report on Thursday.

5 Places That I Love to Visit in Houston

1. The Menil Collection and CampusThe Menil is an extraordinary island of art in the Montrose area of Houston. It includes the main museum which houses one of the world great art collections, a campus of other smaller arts buildings, the Rothko Chapel, the Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum, and outdoor sculpture parks. It exists because of John and Dominique de Menil’s vision and wish for a museum experience that would touch the spirit as well as the mind and permanently house their extensive art collection.

The main museum designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano skillfully uses natural light throughout the museum while filtering out the damaging ultraviolet rays to protect the artwork. Due to this design, each visit through the museum has a slightly different feel due to the changing light at different times of the day or year. This is one of my favorite places to view art when I need a little inspiration, and the museum has the added benefit of free admission to all visitors.

2. Terry Hershey Park Hike and Bike Trail Terry Hershey Park has about 12.5 miles of paved trails extending from Beltway 8 all the way to the Barker Dam. The park, originally called Buffalo Bayou Park, was renamed after conservationist Terese Hershey in the 1990 These trails are wonderful places to ride your bike, walk your dog, jog, or view nature. The Buffalo Bayou runs parallel to the trails and attracts squirrels, rabbits, butterflies, fish, and birds. I like walking in the early morning when there is a serene beauty to the trails. Other attractions along the trail include gazebos, exercise stations, a playground, and various benches and picnic sites.

3. House of BluesI have seen several musicians perform at the House of Blues in downtown Houston. It is a smaller more intimate venue with both a standing/pit section as well as reserved seating in the upper decks. Either way you are close enough to see the band on the stage and close enough for the band to see you. In a performance by Thirty Seconds to Mars, the lead singer chose people from both the pit and the upper decks to come down and join him on stage at the end of the concert. I think that many bands prefer venues of this size where they can more easily interact with the audience. The House of Blues also has a Foundation Room which is a kind of hidden club with a bar and several small rooms for lounging or entertaining.

4. GalleriaThe Galleria has everything you could need or ask for in a shopping experience. It is now the fourth largest mall in the United States with over 375 stores and restaurants as well as two hotels and an ice rink. Overhead are glass atriums that fill the mall with light and the stores rise up on multiple levels that overlook the ice rink and other displays. The shops include Neiman Marcus, Cartier, Gucci, Tiffany Co., Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s, Ralph Lauren Collection, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Nordstrom. If you crave a sweet treat, there Dylan Candy Bar with its bins of sweet, sour, and chocolate goodies, or for fine dining you can visit Del Frisco Double Eagle Steak House. My kids love to visit the LEGO Store with its interactive play area. Whether browsing or buying, the Galleria is a fun place to spend a few hours.

5. CITYCENTREDeveloped as a self contained community, the CITYCENTRE includes housing, shopping, dining, office space, a movie theater, and fitness facilities in a city square layout around common green spaces. In the suburbs of Houston, where everything is fairly spread out, it nice to park and be able to walk from shop to shop, eat dinner, and have a drink at a bar without ever going back to your car. The only drawback is it’s popularity which can make it difficult to get into a restaurant on some weekend nights without a long wait. However, it’s worth it to experience a slice of downtown on the west side of Houston.

5 destinations worth the drive

but don’t want to waste time and money on a long drive or overnight stay. We did not even have to pay Canadian sales taxes on our purchases, which we declared at the border after a recent trip of a few hours. My wife and I had spent a modest $75 on taxable items, which may explain why we were excused the taxes. Watertown has a good selection of stores, including a vast new Target big box store. It also has an excellent book store (Borders) in Salmon Run Mall, plus many clothing stores, of which we liked Bon Ton best. We decided not to lug home a 15 pound frozen turkey, on sale in Hannaford supermarket for less than $9. but don’t want to waste time and money on a long drive or overnight stay.

We decided not to lug home a 15 pound frozen turkey, on sale in Hannaford supermarket for less than $9.

Tip: Good places to eat are Bob Evans (all day breakfasts for $7) and Panera Bread (a bakery caf where a delicious meal of soup, sandwich and coffee costs less than $10). Both are on the shopping strip, Route 3.

Where: The shopping area is at the intersection of I 81 and Route 3.

Driving time from Ottawa: Two hours, plus any border delays.

How to get there: Delays are usually less frequent at the border crossing near Prescott than at the Thousand Islands Bridge. From Ogdensburg, across from Prescott, take the scenic drive along the St. One is the Eastview Mall, an upscale shopping complex on the outskirts of Rochester, and the other is Waterloo Premium Outlets, with about 100 outlet stores, located halfway between Rochester and Syracuse. The Eastview Mall features five department stores Bon Ton, JC Penney, Lord Taylor, Macy’s and Sears as well as big chain stores such as Home Depot, Old Navy and Target. Waterloo Premium Outlets has Jones New York, Liz Claiborne, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Timberland.

Tip: Don’t try to do this in one day. Rochester’s attractions, rated Gems by AAA, include the Memorial Art Gallery and Rochester Museum Science Centre. The Finger Lakes area offers marvellous scenery and is dotted with wineries.

Where: Eastview Mall is located on Route 96, at Exit 45 off the New York Thruway (I 90). For Waterloo Premium Outlets, take Exit 41 off New York Thruway (I 90), take Route 414 south, then Route 318 west.

Driving time from Ottawa: Four to five hours.

Why it’s worth the drive: For scenery and shopping, it’s hard to beat the village of North Conway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Mount Washington dominates the skyline. The downhill and cross country skiing are great. The area is well known for its inns, restaurants and antique stores. And there’s no sales tax here which means even better deals in the dozens of outlet stores. Bean retail chain has an outlet store here. Other outlet stores feature Haggar, Nike, Rockport, Liz Claiborne, Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren brands, among others. There are more than 50 outlet stores in Settlers’ Green Outlet Village alone.

Tip: The area is good for a long weekend getaway any time of year, or for a stop on the way to or from the Maine coast.

3 undervalued growth companies for your portfolio

Combined with financial discipline and thoughtful strategy, there’s nothing quite like focused management and staff enthusiasm to ignite the prospects of a business. In this Fool’s view, these three companies fit the bill.

Although ASX listed, Sundance Energy is a US onshore oil and gas producer with assets located in prime locations from Texas to Mississippi. Corporate headquarters are in Denver, Colorado. Costs of production are relatively low, and access to necessary infrastructure is not a problem.

Sundance Energy is well set up financially with no net debt, established growing cash flow and funds in the bank. In addition to producing wells, exploration success has been outstanding and further proven reserves are expected to increase substantially.

At $1.04, Sundance Energy is selling around 5 times 2014 earnings and, with the speed at which wells are brought into production; this could prove conservative. There is unlikely to be a dividend in the short term as the company is very intent on increasing production and substantiating further reserves. SEA is an ignored stock with plenty of near term upside.

Servcorp is the world’s secondlargest serviced office provider and operates 130 floors in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. In addition, a range of ‘virtual’ offices is successfully marketed as ‘everything but the physical office’. Operating in a high growth and diverse industry, Servcorp’s main differentiation is the high quality of service, location and IT facilities.

Servcorp is financially strong no debt, good cash flow and $87 million in the bank. The share price has been restrained as a result of the heavy capital expenditure required in developing a significant presence in the US. Much like hotels, serviced offices need a couple of years to mature after initial opening. In an encouraging sign, the US business is reported to be cash positive at this stage.

On face value, results for 2013 won’t be sensational at a PE of 17 and 4.3% yield. However, 2014 on will show substantial profit and yield improvement as more and more floors mature. Added to this are benefits from a lower Aussie dollar. Taking a two year view Servcorp is undervalued.

With 75 years in business it’s difficult to describe this company as a promising growth prospect. However Oroton had a history of periodic adaption and fashion innovation. In the past few years Sally MacDonald (CEO) and Ana Maria Escobar (creative director) have woken up this business, with Oroton now operating 71 stores/outlets including seven in Asia (Malaysia and Singapore). Additional stores in Dubai, Hong Kong and Shanghai are set to open by Christmas. Oroton’s online sales exceed 10% of revenues, exceptional for an Australian based retailer.

The expiration (after 23 years) of the Ralph Lauren licence has affected the immediate outlook the Ralph Lauren segment contributed 50% of revenues and 30% of profits in 2012. In an update on 2August 2013, Oroton announced 2013 earnings are likely to be modestly improved at 62c per share (Ralph Lauren licence expired 30June 2013); 2014 earnings may range between a very pessimistic (nothing going right) 25c 40c+. At $6.85, Oroton trades at 17 projected 2014 net earnings (assuming earnings of 40c).

However, the update doesn’t take into account the impact of any new acquisitions and license agreements. Talks are well advanced and confirmation of at least one deal is expected over the next three to six months. With astute and patient management Oroton won’t rush into deals for the sake of impatient investors.

Fashion and retail remains a buyer’s market, and there is strong potential for at least one value creating deal. In an important signal, Oroton is retaining staff and overhead previously used in the management of the Ralph Lauren license meaning implementation of any agreement will be fast tracked.

These three companies march to different drums and different timescales; however, all have solid prospects not adequately reflected in current market pricing. Sundance Energy (a forgotten stock) is fast tracking additional proven reserves and already has a rich portfolio of undervalued producing assets. Servcorp will unlock the value from intense capital investment in the US over the next two years. Oroton is a longer term prospect with the financial capacity and business savvy to leverage returns from any agreed acquisition or license deals.

5 Stocks In Well Defined Bullish Uptrends To Consider

Trending stocks make for profitable trades. “The Trend is Your Friend” is an often heard investing mantra. Welles Wilder’s concept of directional movement to identify stocks that are entering a new trend or are already in an established trending pattern is the basis for this investing thesis. Directional movement attempts to infer the “true” movement of a stock based on its price changes from one day to the next. For example, a stock’s price could close up one day compared to the day before but directional movement indicators may reveal that the stock’s actual movement is downward. The DM for a stock on a given day is one of up, +DM, down, DM or zero.

Visually, it is fairly simple to determine the DM value for a stock. It is based on comparing the day’s high and low with yesterday’s high and low. For an in depth understanding about Directional Movement, refer directly to Welles Wilder’s book “New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems.” In this book you will find all the formulas, accumulation techniques and sample worksheets required to get a working, hands on understanding of this technique in stock price analysis.

Nevertheless, savvy investors know this is only one piece of the investing puzzle. You must couple this information with a fundamental analysis of the company to determine if the company is fairly valued at current levels. I have selected five stocks that meet the requirements for being in a defined uptrend to consider below.

GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK) GSK is producing strong value with $43 billion in revenue, a 73.5% gross margin and operating cash flow of $12 billion. Nonetheless, with the added efficiencies gained by a world class partnership secured with McLaren, I expect the bottom line to increase substantially. Additionally, several recent legal disputes have been settled clearing the way for profits.

Fundamental Analysis The company currently has 4.96B shares out and its stock trades around $45.02, giving it a market cap of roughly $222.9B. The stock’s average daily trading volume is 2.4M. Shares of GlaxoSmithKline are trading about 1.5% below their 52 week high of $46.50. Institutional ownership stands at about 9% and, as of 02/15/12, the total short interest was 6.39M shares. Its forward P/E is 12.49.

GSK has a PEG ratio of 1.15 and an RSI of 57.23. A PEG ratio of 1 is considered to be undervalued and a RSI of 70 or greater indicates a stock is overbought. GSK’s PEG of 1.15 indicates the company is currently undervalued. This fact coupled with a RSI of 57, which indicates the company is neither oversold nor overbought, makes GSK a buy at current levels.

Consensus analyst 12 month price target: $48.50 Key Metrics Income Data Balance Sheet

Ralph Lauren Corporation (NYSE:RL) Ralph Lauren was recently upgraded after beating earnings estimates and raising guidance on February 8th. Third quarter revenues grew 17% to $1.8 billion and comparable store sales rose 12%. Operating income rose 10% to $270 million in the third quarter. Third quarter diluted EPS was $1.78. The company also raised Its fiscal 2012 sales and profit outlook. Moreover, cotton prices have declined 37% from their spring 2011 high, according to Credit Suisse analyst Christian Buss. Inflation in cotton costs last year had hurt Ralph Lauren.

Fundamental Analysis The company currently has 90.97M shares out and its stock trades around $173.94, giving it a market cap of roughly $15.81B. The stock’s average daily trading volume is 1.02M. Shares of Ralph Lauren are trading about 2.6% below their 52 week high of $178.47. Institutional ownership stands at about 99% and, as of 02/15/12, the total short interest was 2.59M shares. Its forward P/E is 20.94.

Ralph Lauren recently beat earnings estimates and has gapped up significantly. RL has a PEG ratio of 1.74 and a RSI 79 which indicates it is currently overvalued and overbought. I would wait for a pullback of 5 10% before starting a position.

Consensus analyst 12 month price target: $192 Key Metrics Income Data Balance Sheet

Ross Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ:ROST) Ross Stores is a recognizable name at a prime price point. It has a bulletproof balance sheet and is highly profitable. Combine this with an excellent track record and prospects for future increases in dividends, and you have a winning recipe for profits.

Fundamental Analysis The company currently has 228.6M shares out and its stock trades around $51.55, giving it a market cap of roughly $11.78B. The stock’s average daily trading volume is 2.06M. Shares of Ross Stores are trading about 2% below their 52 week high of $52.71. Institutional ownership stands at about 83% and, as of 02/15/12, the total short interest was 4.01M shares. Its forward P/E is 15.71.

Ross Stores has a PEG ratio of 1.54 and an RSI of 57.94. The PEG ratio indicates the stock is slightly overvalued, but the RSI indicates it is not currently overbought. Ross Stores is a Buy at current levels. Investors are willing to pay a premium for the stock due to its outstanding past performance. Additionally, the stock is trading near the bottom on the current ascending triangle trend channel, which means it could be due for a breakout to the upside.

Consensus analyst 12 month price target: $53 Key Metrics Income Data Balance Sheet

Visa Inc. (NYSE:V) Visa recently won the latest battle with the banks regarding debit card fees. Additionally, as more and more people use their smart phones and computers to purchase goods and services online, Visa is well positioned for continued growth.

Fundamental Analysis The company currently has 673M shares out and its stock trades around $114.09, giving it a market cap of roughly $76.77B. The stock’s average daily trading volume is 3.99M. Shares of Visa are trading about 2.57% below their 52 week high of $117.15. Institutional ownership stands at about 83% and, as of 02/15/12, the total short interest was 4.93M shares. Its forward P/E is 16.37.

Visa has a PEG ratio of 1.58 and an RSI of 71.30. Visa recently knocked the ball out of the park in regards to earnings and has gapped up. Visa is currently exhibiting oversold and slightly overvalued conditions. I would wait for the earnings pop to fizzle somewhat and buy it on the dip.

1 To Avoid From Stephen Mandel’s Lone Pine Capital

is a privately owned hedge fund management firm with over $14 billion AUM. It was founded in 1998 by Steven Mandel, formerly a managing director and analyst at Tiger Management. Steve Mandel is arguably the most successful of the Tiger cubs who left legendary founder Julian Robertson Jr. to start their own funds. Steve is neither a growth nor value investor. He invests in good companies run by good people, with stock valuations below what he deems to be their intrinsic value. He is well known for his $500 million bet on Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) in 2005 which helped him break into the top 10 hedge fund money makers.

The following is a list some of his top buys from the last quarter.

Baidu is the market leader in the Chinese Internet search market, with an 80% market share. The business has high barriers to entry and even Google wasn’t able to meaningfully challenge Baidu’s dominance in the past. Going forward, I believe Baidu can continue to post 50% plus growth for the next several years.

There is a secular tailwind for the leading search company, Baidu, which will be the likely beneficiary as the normalization occurs. According to consensus estimates, Baidu is expected to post EPS of $4.55 in the current year and $6.47 in the next year. It is trading at 21x forward P/E, which is reasonable given its 50% growth rate.

eBay provides online market place for sale of goods and services. It also provides other online commerce, platforms and payment solutions to businesses and individuals.

eBay reported impressive fourth quarter results with revenues of $3.38 billion (up 35% YoY) and non GAAP EPS of $0.60 (up 17% YoY) versus the Street estimates of $3.31 billion and $0.57, respectively. eBay’s core retailing business marketplace seems to be making a turnaround as it revamped the website, invested in new technologies recasting it as an online mall. eBay’s payments unit, PayPal, also performed strongly. The active Paypal accounts increased by 13% YoY and Paypal showed a strong increase of 130 bp in its margins.

Both these businesses, PayPal and marketplace, have more than 100 million active users, and the user base is growing steadily. In addition to strong trends in its PayPal and marketplace businesses, eBay’s new mobile payment systems seems to be making headway along with the robust growth of e commerce businesses. The mobile payment volume was $4 billion in 2011, five times more than its previous year volume and is estimated to be $7 billion in 2012.

Although eBay’s guidance for 2012 was mixed, it mainly has to do with conservatism on the part of management, particularly given the eurozone uncertainty. I recommend buying the stock from a medium term perspective as turnaround of its core marketplace business continues to attract more and more consumers.

Ralph Lauren is transitioning itself into a premium luxury brand from an apparel company. It deserves a higher PE multiple in line with luxury brands given its accelerating emphasis on building out a global luxury business with a focus on non sportswear luxury categories. In the near term, with cyclical cost pressures reversing and an ongoing favorable mix shift towards high margin businesses, I expect the company’s EBIT margin to expand. There is also a likelihood of EPS estimates getting revised higher, which along with company’s expanding ROIC, can lead to an upside for the stock.

3 great ASX shares trading at 52

I have just trawled through 35 stocks appearing on the list of the ASX rolling 52 week lows, with a view to securing a bargain.

To gain an overall market snapshot, I categorised the 35 stocks into market sectors. Gold accounted for 37% of the stocks, miscellaneous 25%, small cap explorers 21% and mining services 17%. I have ignored both the mining services sector due to the slowdown in resource projects and the small cap explorers due to limited access to funding.

In looking at the gold sector, I recall that Scott Phillips (co advisor of our flagship investment service, Motley Fool Share Advisor) had very recently named Kingsgate as one of five gold stocks he?s going to inspect more closely. At the same time, he cautioned that they were not yet recommendations.

After the end of last financial year the stock disappointed with a $300 million impairment charge against its South Australian Challenger gold mine. This prompted the company to lower production volumes, but target higher grade ore. Additionally, they pledged to cut mine development costs by up to 30% and implement job cuts, which should improve margins. All this was expected to make the mine cash flow positive.

Gold miners such as Kingsgate have watched the gold price drop from above US$1,600 in April to it current level of US$1,239. Just over a month ago Citigroup upgraded the stock as they saw reasonable valuation support at $1.40. The current price is 0.91cents, with no additional bad news, other than the price of gold moving down another US$50. At such times the selling in gold stocks can lack discrimination and value begins to emerge.

So I would strongly recommend putting Kingsgate on your watch list, while trading at 52 week lows.

This stock had defied the miserable retail trend for a long time, with CEO Sally MacDonald being widely praised for her efforts. Then the company lost the Ralph Lauren Polo license, a totally unforeseeable event which brought the shares off its highs.

However, Oroton has gone a long way toward plugging the earnings hole created by that loss, by acquiring two new licensed fashion brand lines in Brooks Brothers and The Gap. It currently has two potential growth avenues via expansion of the product range and expansion throughout Asia.

Finally, it was one of the few retailers alert to the migration toward online purchasing and such sales now account for 10% of all domestic and overseas sales.

General Property Trust (ASX: GPT)

This company has always been of the highest quality. However in the most recent reporting season it revealed weak underlying market fundamentals. In the view of Deutsche bank at the time of its FY 2013 profit results, GPT?s saviour was its $1.3 billion of acquisition capacity, which provided management with the ability to buy growth in the coming years.

This is evident with the offer made for Commonwealth Property Office Fund (ASX: CPA) which had the effect of knocking down the price of the shares, despite Deutsche?s assertions that such acquisitions will buy growth.

Additionally, at a late October earnings guidance and strategy update, the company set an ambitious target for a 140% increase in funds under management to drive returns in the future.

Investing in out of favour shares may yield big returns should fortunes reverse. Of the three stocks mentioned, my greatest confidence would be placed in Kingsgate.

However, one must bear in mind the risks involved in catching a falling knife.

Having a deep understanding of the stocks lends extra confidence to a purchasing decision. In the absence of this, place these stocks on your watch list and monitor them over time to gain that understanding.
