Greg Estes, portfolio manager at Intrepid Capital Funds, and Alan Vales, vice president at Hillard Lyons, named stocks to help investors build and strengthen their portfolios ahead of next week’s trading.
“Anheuser-Busch is being acquired by InBev for $70 a share at the end of the year,” said Estes. “But if you look at the share price even recently, it’s been down $58—that’s more than 15 percent return on a stock that’s going to be bought very shortly…I think it’s a worthwhile risk to take for a short period of time.”
“The energy category where Hansen Natural does its business is still growing, so it’s a rather nascent industry,” he said.
“We like GE, [CNBC’s] parent company,” said Valdes. “It’s been trading at 52-week lows…has a good yield—6.4 percent, a nice dividend—$1.24. Our target price is $30, so we like GE.”
Disclosure information was not immediately available for Estes, Vales or their companies.
As mentioned above, General Electric is the corporate parent of CNBC.
