3 Under-the-Radar Stock Picks: Zack Shafran

While Apple represents one of the largest holdings in Zack Shafran’s Ivy Science & Technology Fund, three other under-the-radar stocks are poised for growth, he said Tuesday on CNBC.

“One of the things that we’ve been very excited about is scarce resources, you know, food and water. Kind of important stuff. In our view there are three ways to come at that,” he said on “Fast Money.”

Shafran’s three picks:

Monsanto’s global expansion looks positive, as well as drought-resistant seeds in an increasingly volatile global climate, he said.

Pentair, which is known for its water filters and pumps, “are about clean water” and are heading into a $4.6 billion merger with Tyco unit ADR.

Darling, already involved in the rendering businesses, in moving into biodiesel with a collaboration with Valero Energy in the works. “We think there’s enormous opportunity there,” he said.
